If you want a taste of old Hanalei when days were slower and a good catch fishing and the best vegetables were the talk of the town, this home will fill the order. This property has been lovingly maintained since it was built. It is our family's privilege to share Aunty Lydia's homestead with folks from around the world. Aunty Lydia's Ohana is a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath with carport. Inside you will find photos of this Hanalei family over the years. This home is only 6 houses from the beach (a very short stroll) and well located to reach all the North Shore's best beaches easily. This house is right off Kuhio Highway so you can see the surfers and North Shore life coming and going. It is about 3 blocks into "downtown" Hanalei. There is a great carport for BBQ , eating al fresco & enjoying the mountains and waterfall views.
Aunty Lydia's Ohana is a relaxed Hawaiian style home a minute's walk from the center of Hanalei Bay & is probably one of the best values in Hanalei Beach Houses. Surrounded by tropical plants, with a grassy yard surrounding the house on 3 sides.
There is a very functional kitchen enhanced with lovingly stenciled foliage for preparing some of our farmer's market produce and fresh fish from the sea. This room has a pass through to the living room.
The wash house with a washer & dryer is just outside as well as an outside toilet room and a hot & cold shower in the yard.
There is a king bed in the largest bedroom at the back of the house. A queen in the front bedroom and two twins in third bedroom. All bedrooms have their own air conditioners.
Hanalei is famous for its ever changing mountains; sometimes veiled in thin mist, sometimes obscured in thick clouds, sometimes full of waterfalls, sometimes so sun drenched so that every detail stands out.
Aunty Lydia's is a great place to enjoy the mountains both from the living room windows and from the carport/lanai. Since there is plenty of room to park in front of the house in the yard, many choose this area as the eating & hang out spot. There is an outside table and chairs for al fresco meals.
Not long after our family set this house up as a vacation rental, some of Aunty Lydia's family from the mainland came to Hanalei & were tickled to be able to stay in their Aunty Lydia's house.
While being on Kuhio Highway, (highway in Hanalei meaning 1 lane in each direction with a 25 mile speed limit) the home has a beautiful hedge of tropical foliage separating you from the road. A parking area & the beginning of the yard are in front of the house.
Wai'oli Beach park is a thin strip of park which is located between the bay front homes and the sand. There are BBQs, tables, shade trees, a bathroom and usually volley ball. This is where you encounter the bay, a minute or so from Aunty Lydia's. When you come home form the beach, there is a hot & cold outside shower to enjoy a fresh water rinse or shower under the stars.
