Magical Kauai Cottage on North Shore

Family-friendly holiday home in Hanalei
Hale Huna('Hidden House')is a wonderful cottage on a hillside near the 'end of the road' on North Kauai. Located on hill and a quiet cul-de-sac with only a few other local houses. Our cottage had no flooding or leaks during the 2018 flood on the North Shore. Very private and peaceful (It is NOT on/near the highway like many Kauai rentals). Perfect for a meditative getaway or honeymoon cottage. Healing and restful.

Beautiful views of green mountains from backyard. Lush plant life, including mango, grapefruit, guava and lime trees. Outdoor shower sheltered by tropical foliage. This is a small but charming and tastefully furnished plantation-style cottage with the feel of 'real' Hawaii. Within five minutes drive of gorgeous sandy beaches, incredible snorkeling at Tunnels, Ke'e and Lumahai Beaches and world class surf at Hanalei Bay.

The closest town is charming Hanalei, which has restaurants, a grocery store, a health food store, shops, bars and more. Hanalei Bay is famous for its large crescent beach, winter surfing and calm summer waters. The stunning NaPali Coast is just minutes away (the mountains seen from the backyard are the back of the Pali's/Mountains).

The North Shore of Kauai is known for its lush tropical, rainforest-like climate and vegetation and low key lifestyle. It's a fantastic place to relax, read, swim, hike, surf, snorkel, eat fresh fish and my favorite, just walking on the beach looking for shells.

5/5 Excellent

Truly magical and perfect for families!
My husband, 3-year-old son, and I spent the most magical week at ‘Hale Huna’ while exploring the North Shore of Kauai. I can’t begin to express what a wonderful property this was for our little family. It was the perfect size, location, and offered all the amenities we needed to make our vacation special and easy. This off-the-beaten-path location offers accessibility, as well as peace & quiet and an absolutely gorgeous yard that feels like your own private botanic gardens. We loved having our coffee and breakfast outside each morning and really enjoying the variety of plants, flowers, and geckos. Most importantly, if felt very safe for our little guy who’s curiosity sometimes gets the best of him. We used the den with twin bed as his room. And the 2nd queen bedroom as a dressing room. Beyond being functional, the general aesthetics of the property are top notch. Kristi’s taste is exception! The furnishings, decor, and art featured throughout the home were so inviting and unique! It felt like we were staying at a high-end boutique hotel. The AC was a wonderful perk and the kitchen was well equipped. We never had that “oh shoot, we need…” feeling. The provided beach gear (i.e. Tommy Bahama chairs, beach umbrella, boogie board, surf board, cooler, towels, etc) were super useful, too! Without question, we’d stay here again. We kept saying, this place is really setting the bar for future vacations!

Beautiful house!! Great amenities and location!
One of the nicest VRBO's I've stayed at. Gorgeous house and grounds. Very convenient north shore location. Loved the layout, décor, outside spaces. Great recommendations from very responsive host. Beach equipment for guest's use. Would return in a heartbeat and hope to have the opportunity to do so!

5/5 Excellent

Very very good!
We know Kauai quite well having visited regularly for 35 years. This will be our 'go-to" place for future visits. Its entirely comfortable and extremely well situated for our interests (we are not big resort people with need of r bars, gyms etc.). It was quite, scenic and apart from the crowds and traffic. It is in the middle of the Hanalei - Haena strip of road so all my favorite spots are nearby. Kristi was a perfect host. I was impressed at how quickly she answered my many questions and everything about our trip was smooth as silk. I'd hesitate to bring children to this spot. Its in a quiet neighborhood so a lot of noise might not go over too well. Also, there are lots of decorative things and several older fittings that might not hold up well under rough play. For us though, a pair if older adults, it ws perfect.

Dreamy North Shore Getaway
What a great home base for our visit to Kauai! Great jumping off point for snorkeling, hiking, etc. and the washer/dryer was an incredible perk. Would definitely recommend and would absolutely stay here again.

Living the dream at Hale Huna
I cannot say enough about what a wonderful treasure this home was for my stay on Kauai. The house itself is perfectly located for anyone wanting to really immerse themselves on the north shore, and it could not be more elegantly and thoughtfully appointed. Just gorgeous. Every finish and detail is lovely and you absolutely have everything you need. Kristi was an incredibly thoughtful host and communicator. Bursting with gratitude for the stay and can't wait to come back!
