  • Every bit as beautiful as the photos, and kid-friendly too

    "This house was an amazing place to stay with two toddlers (ages 2.5 and 3). The kids absolutely loved running up and down the garden pathways, which are less dangerous, and as stunning, than they looked in the photos. There are a couple drop-offs, and a couple beds of thorny plants, but they weren't particularly inviting hazards. It was easy for the supervising adult to keep the kids away. The access trail to Pila'a Beach turned out to be too rough to take the the kids, so we only went there once. For toddlers, anyway, Pila'a was not as nice as some of the other close beaches. Kalihiwai Beach -- with its flowing river -- was our favorite. The garage was well-stocked with beach toys and chairs. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed, and some basic ingredients too. The dining gazebo turned out not to be practical for most meals; it's just too much work to haul everything up and down, if you're cooking in the kitchen. But, the dining table in the house is just as large as the one in the gazebo. Unless you're grilling, you'll probably decide to eat upstairs. Down the street, there are several honor-system produce stands from neighboring small farms: in February, we got tangelos, avocados, eggs, fresh flowers, coconuts, bananas, and other citrus. There are basically two master bedrooms in the main house, each with an attached (and totally dope) bathroom, and one full bedroom in the upper guesthouse, which has an indoor toilet/sink but the shower is outdoor (though private). The extra 'half bedroom' is attached to one of the masters in the main house -- it has one door to the outside, and its other door leads to the other bedroom. So, this half-BR is the least convenient sleeping room for an adult, since you either need to go through another bedroom, or outside, to access a bathroom. But it might work for a kid, or an unfussy uncle. Both full bathrooms in the main house were drop dead gorgeous, with an extremely high level of finish and luxury materials throughout. The shower/tub on the ocean side of the house is particularly amazing, with a 270-degree view through one-way privacy glass. The shower base there is a custom tile tub, and our little kids loved splashing in it at bath time. Only caveat: this house might not be a good choice for folks with limited mobility. There are lots of stairs from the parking area / guesthouse to the main house; making (for example) loading/unloading groceries a fair chore. But otherwise, you will love this house."

  • Anini Beach is beautiful

    "Great house just steps from the stunning Anini beach (we even saw sea turtles at the beach across from the house.) While not luxurious, the house is very comfortable and has everything you need for a pleasant stay. Our family of five (2 adults, 3 kids under 12) often ventured by car to the end of Anini beach where there was less wind and the waves were even calmer but both ends of the beach had something to offer. For food and restaurants we drove to Princeville and Hanelei Bay (kids decided JoJo's Hawaiian ice was the best) which is an easy drive. We also explored the other north shore beaches - best snorkeling at Tunnels and Hideaway - but they are a lot more crowded than this part of Anini. We had some rain everyday which is to be expected on Kauai so don't be disappointed if it's not all blue skies. Overall, a wonderful place for a family vacation."

  • Lovely, great, perfect

    "This was a really special property and my wife and I enjoyed our week at the Garden Hideaway. The location was perfect for our activities and the thoughtful touches on the part of the owner (coffee, breakfast fixings, fruit) made our trip! Thank you and would love to return!"

  • I made next years reservation the minute we got back home!

    "We made such wonderful memories at this very special house and I want it to become among my favorite places to relax and enjoy the beauty of Kauai. The pool is spectacular. I would go there for the pool alone, as a have an injured knee and my exercises are best done underwater. The purpose of our trip was the 65th birthday of my friend and I. She and I have been friends since we were teenagers, so for this special occasion we took our adult kids and their plus-ones, husbands, and we had a treat when the world's best massage therapist and special person flew over from her home on Oahu to celebrate with us. We booked through Pure Kauiai, and everyone there was wonderful. Our host Diedre guided us through the. Aril us things to do for our variety of ages. They run a smoothe ship and are so eager to help you have a better time. The property manager, a Holly, was just great. I enjoyed talking to her so much, and she and husband. MIke, who lovingly maintains the lush grounds and grows the most amazing pineapples and papayas I ever had, explained the land of Kauai to me, never acting irritated by my many questions. The house is a gem. I didn't want to write a review because I feared it would be more difficult to reserve it if I encouraged more guests to go. But I must confess: the grounds are huge, with many outdoor coveted sitting spaces so everyone is not on top of each other. There were 8 of us, and there was room for more. No one wanted to leave when the time came, but we already have dates booked for next year."
