Recent Hanalei reviews

  • Great place to spend Family Christmas!

    "Our family really enjoyed spending Christmas week+ at this Hanalei house. The location is perfect for walking to the food market/shops and only 1.5 blocks from the Pavilion Beach in Hanalei. Lots of beach gear for boogie boarding/snorkling. The large covered lanai with quality furniture enabled us to sit out during periodic rain. Good ceiling fans for added breeze. Large upstairs loft bedroom was perfect for kids to sleep/play. Master Bedroom had large bathroom and shower. Hot water was fine (just took a minute to get hot like my house at home). Other bedrooms very comfy. Frequently used the big gas grill for Kauai grass-fed beef steaks or local seafood. Loved the private feel of the yard and view of mountains. Very quiet with only occasional rooster greeting the day. Great place to unwind!"

  • Location alone makes it worth it

    "Listing was as described save for two items: nowhere does it say that this is a downstairs suite in the owner's house. Also, the listing says "newly renovated" but I don't believe it to be so. The unit was adequately clean. As a studio suite the unit was sizable and had a lovely view to the west. The owner was accommodating but gave us our privacy, which was great. I would rate this accommodation on the high side of 'middle-of-the-road'. Some of the things we found to be minor deficiencies could easily be a deal-breaker for other vacationers, but we enjoyed our stay overall. The good: - Great view of mountains - Comfortable bed - Great communication from owner before and during stay - Superb location a stone's throw from the beach, shops, and restaurants - Quiet unit with no noise from owner (upstairs) or outside. Very peaceful. - Very good supply of various things we might need to enhance our stay - ie. beach chairs, umbrella, local restaurant info, towels, etc. The Bad: - Strange smell permeates entire unit. Mothballs maybe? - Yard foliage is overgrown to the point that the cement path is completely covered halfway to the door, and the yard feels shadowy and closed-in. - Lawn furniture has also been swallowed by the plants. It's obvious that attention has not been paid to the garden. - Notes taped EVERYWHERE to explain all the broken and/or quirky things. Just fix it or renovate as needed so that there are no quirks! Overall: Although it is nice now, I feel like this was a much nicer unit ten or fifteen years ago. Since then it seems like it has been cleaned but not updated. The fridge has a water dispenser that doesn't work; the washing machine only works on the permanent press setting; and the yard was very overgrown, for example. One other other notable deficiency was the cheap foam furniture in the living area. It was so obvious that the owner took great care in decorating the unit and making it look pleasantly Hawaiian (and does a great job of it!) that sitting down on furniture that seemed like it was meant either for a patio or a kid's room ruined the mood that was so carefully crafted. We sat on the very comfortable bed or kitchen chairs instead. We were satisfied with our stay. The owner obviously wanted us to be happy but was also unobtrusive. With light renos this unit could easily jump into the 'superb' category. The location alone makes it worth it and we had a great time."
