  • Hanalei Hideaway

    "My husband and I stayed in the Beach Suite for a week in May. This was after a 10 day stay at a resort in Poipu. We would take the Beach Suite any day!!! The proximity to the beach was number one with us. Such a quick walk and you're there. The apartment had everything we needed. We really enjoyed being so close to Jana and her family. It made us feel like we actually lived in Kauai too. We would definitely stay there again."

  • Loved This Property!

    "We booked this property for our honeymoon. We wanted a romantic secluded getaway. It was perfect. The location is ideal, close to nearby shops and restaurants, but off the beaten path. The views from both decks and in the cottage were amazing. We loved the very secluded beach that was a short walk away. The hot tub was a nice touch. Would definitely love to return soon!"

  • A lovely place in every way

    "Staying in this beautiful home was a real treat for our extended family of seven adults. It is situated in a wonderful location that is at once private and very convenient to both the town and one of the nicest beaches in the world. The house is maintained in top condition and the owner is very accessible and responsive. One of the things we really appreciated was the care that was taken in providing helpful and useful information about the house, the island and the town of Hanalei. They literally thought of everything. We've stayed in many vacation rentals, but none have been as thorough and meticulous in paving the way for their guests to have a trouble-free experience. We would gladly stay in this home again and have already recommended it to friends. A true Aloha experience."

  • Heaven in Paradise

    "My family & I have know Hanalei well, and Ileina's Cottage suited us perfectly! We are still basking in the glow of our wonderful stay there, 2 weeks after we checked out. The location is ideal. A very short walk to the cafes, restaurants, shops and grocery stores in town, and a very short walk to the beach. I can't think of a better location within Hanalei, if you want to have the best of both worlds and be able to walk to town or the beach. The layout is generous and appealing, with lots of living space in the main room and on the wraparound porch. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, our kids loved playing in the side and back yards and hunting for geckos. We were thrilled to find a washer and dryer on the premises. There's an outdoor shower for you to wash away the sand and salt from the beach. The house comes very well equipped with all of the dishes and utensils and pots & pans you would ever need, a grill with bbq tools, charcoal and lighter fluid, a host of beach toys for the kids, even a couple of boogie boards and some miscellaneous snorkel gear. I'm sure that inventory of beach stuff comes and goes with each new guest to stay there, but the point is the place is very well stocked and ready for you. Both bedrooms are a nice size and the two bathrooms are both essentially en suite, although one of them opens up onto the the living room as well. I'd say the place is perfect for a couple with young kids who can share a bed, or 2 couples with no kids, or a few friends who don't mind sharing beds. The cottage is adjacent to the larger house property. We were lucky in that the Canadian family staying in the house for the first part of our stay was incredibly friendly, and our elder daughters became fast friends. But the cottage and the house are right next to each other, they share a driveway and yard. The people who moved in after the Canadians left were OK but were not very friendly, and it was slightly awkward to share the space with them and not get any smiles or waves back when they were coming and going. It was not a problem for us, it did not diminish our opinion of the cottage, but it's just good to know how close you will be to your neighbors I think. The ideal scenario would be to rent both the house and the cottage with a larger group, although renting just one or the other is great too. I would not hesitate to recommend Ileina's Cottage. We can't wait to go back!"
