  • 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!"

  • incredible bungalow!

    "This place is incredible! It was super clean comfortable and cozy, and was stocked with all the kitchen amenities we needed. it is located on a farm (although felt very private) with goats, horses, and even a peacock! we slept with the windows open and just listened to the rain. the bathtub and outdoor shower are a plus. Its incredible well situated on the island to explore the northern coast (na pali and hanalei) as well as the east side (kapaa, etc). it is at the end of a 3 mile road which is absolutely stunning for a morning run. would definitely recommend and come back to this place. Mahalo!"

  • We love the Mermaid House !

    "This was our second stay at the Mermaid House and it was better than ever. Great location, quiet neighbors, lots of windows for cool evening trade winds, and bug free! We will be staying a third time at the Mermaid House in 2018. This is a great beach house, not to be confused with a fancy house with granite counters, but it is clean, and spacious and we felt right at home. Very short walk to a beach and near Tunnels and Ke'e two of our most favorite beaches for snorkeling. Best beaches ever!!"

  • Awesome - great hosts

    "Jimmy is an excellent host. We loved the property, its beyond beautiful. The walk down to the beach is amazing, but perhaps a little challenging for the very old and very young, and you will need a car. Its is very well equipped and Jimmy will sort out all of your needs."
