5 min walk to Tunnels Beach! Mountain and Waterfall Views - License # TVNC-1146

Adults-only holiday home in Hanalei
'Kaiolohia' (kai o low he ah) means “peace of mind or calm sea,' and that's surely what you'll discover while staying in this remodeled gated home in the quiet neighborhood of Ha’ena. A 5-minute easy walk to world-famous Tunnels Beach. Tunnels Beach is rated one of the top beaches in all of Hawaii. This beach has a spectacular view of Mt. Makana (Bali Hai); the famous backdrop for the classic movie South Pacific. Tunnels has very limited parking so being within walking distance is a great advantage!

Our home is located 0.2 miles from Tunnels Beach, 0.5 miles from Ha’ena Beach park, and 1.5 miles from Ke’e Beach at the end of the road and the Kalalau trailhead for the Na’pali Coast hike. Walk to all the world-famous beaches of the north shore with our upgraded beach cart with sand balloon tires which carries provided coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas, take a beach-cruiser style bike, or be the first one to park at one of the best beaches in all of Hawaii! Explore all the sights of the north shore “local style”!

The new masterplan implemented in 2019 at Ke’e Beach, Ha’ena State Park, limits parking to 100 cars only per day. Of the 100 spaces, 30 of these spaces are allotted to residents only. They have also added “no parking” & “tow-away” signs within one and half miles of the park. Parking violations are strictly enforced with a $200 - $400 fine plus tow-away charges. These changes have significantly limited the available parking at Ha’ena Beach and Tunnels Beach. Again, being within walking distance is a priceless advantage!

Kaiolohia Hale offers the perfect setting for your romantic getaway or extreme adventure. Hidden away from the world; in a lush, tropical setting, this charming traditional Hawaiian cedar-wood home is private and features a large covered lanai backing undeveloped (jungle) conservation land with views of the beautiful Pohakukane mountain range mountain and Manoa waterfall views. Relax in our outdoor hot & cold shower or soak in the 6-foot tub on the lanai with jungle, mountain and waterfall views after a day at the beach, hiking or just taking an afternoon reading break.

Nearby is the quaint surf town of Hanalei. Hanalei Town has two farmers markets per week (Saturday morning & Tuesday afternoon), dozens of dining choices, shopping, surfboard, kayak & other water sports equipment rentals, lessons and tours available. In addition to all the beach amenities, our home comes equipped with a two-person kayak (for use in rivers and Hanalei Bay only) and two soft top surf boards for catching waves! Sailing, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and seasonal whale watching are all close by. Limahuli Garden, Na Pali coast and Kalalau hiking trail (rated one of the top ten hikes in the world) are just a mile and a half away.

The newly restricted no parking throughout the area makes it almost impossible to enjoy the north shore beaches without a Ha’ena lodging reservation. Don’t miss out on the most spectacular scenery of the island!!

34 years of returning guests endorses Kaiolohia Hale as the premier Kauai north shore rental destination. Protect your vacation investment, only rent a licensed vacation rental property. Enforcement of illegal rental homes in Ha’ena and Wainiha has been increased by the County of Kauai.

Paradise Perfection
This amazing property was perfect for our stay. We walked a few minutes to Tunnels beach to snorkel , saw all sorts of fish and even turtles in the reef which is just off the beach. Relaxing on the lanai watching the cows and chickens walk by was so peaceful, with the gorgeous mountain backdrop. The lanai overlooks all open space, so very quiet and peaceful with gorgeous Mountain View . Hanalei town is close drive for groceries and shopping. Adam and Kim are wonderful, the house is spotless and we will be back! Thank you Adam and Kim! We enjoyed our stay so much ❤️

5/5 Excellent

Ultimate Kauai North Shore experience, stunning property
The best property at the best location. The property is pristine in every way. If that alone is not enough, Adam and Kim have provided every item you could possibly need for an active, fun-filled north shore beach experience. ( bikes, beach equipment, surf boards, etc) The absolute premier location for access to beautiful Tunnels Beach. Your plans for an active vacation may change once you step foot on the magical lanai. You will want to spend some quality time on the lanai with a Mai Tai or some bubbles…absorbing the dramatic mountain / waterfall view. It is etched in my mind. You will enjoy the birds and occasional cow that wanders by the rear yard. This property far exceeded every expectation I had. Whether you want an active experience or a restful lounging experience, I don’t think it gets any better than this. Pure magic! Mahalo

5/5 Excellent

Awesome place near Tunnels!
Loved staying so nearby to Tunnels beach! The owners are friendly and have a great book to give you trip ideas. I loved the outdoor bath tub and being able to watch the cows walk by in the afternoon. I'd definitely stay here again; just make sure you either grab some groceries on the drive up, make restaurant reservations in advance, or hit up a food truck for dinner!

5/5 Excellent

Look no further!
A north side gem! My fiancé and I were unsure of where to stay on Kauai- as both the north side and south side are wonderful. We chose right! The north side is truly a green paradise. Kim & Adams place was like waking up in a jungle. The master bedroom faces a gorgeous landscape with lush gardens and beautiful animals roaming alongside you. As soon as we got to the property- Kim and Adam drove us around the neighborhood to get a feel for where the beaches are. Walking distance! Tunnels is by far the best beach on the island and it's 5 minute walk from the Hale. The Hale itself has a gorgeous lanai (nice big deck)- where we ate, napped, watched the sunset. It has a nice big bathtub for two as well! The entire space was so clean, kitchen was stocked with everything you need to make a proper meal, and the bathrooms had plenty of towels. This is a perfect rental for a romantic getaway, or for a peaceful escape. I would look elsewhere if you are trying to have a party- this space is in a residential neighborhood. We were grateful to have such a big place all to ourselves. It was a treat. We will be back!!!!! Thanks Adam and Kim <3
