Tucked away on over an acre of lush paradise along the Wainiha Stream in an ancient grove of 100 ft. tall mango trees lies the Hale Wainiha (Wainiha Cottage). Offering privacy, rest and refreshment, this charming home sits on a bluff overlooking an expansive view of the entire river valley with neighboring taro farm and spectacular vistas of distant mountains. Relax and enjoy the amazing views from the deck or from your private pool and hot tub. Starry nights in the hot tub are truly magical. And the pool is cool and refreshing after a hot day at the beach. Or the perfect morning wake up. The large yard is like a botanical garden filled with exotic birds and flowers and fruit trees. Pick a Papaya or a Banana, cut some giant Heliconia flowers. The property meanders down to over 200' of private stream, feel free to take a refreshing dip. The sounds of the river and the croaking frogs will lull you to sleep. This lush valley is a serene retreat, nourishing the soul with natures greatest beauty while offering all the modern comforts of home, you almost won't want to leave the property. But when you do, it is ridiculously close to the best beaches on the island, Tunnels, Lumahai, Ke'e and Hanalei. Firstly, Lumaha'i, just 1 mile away, with its long deep stretches of soft sand broken by picturesque protrusions of lava rocks creating dramatic ocean breaks. Tunnels Beach has an amazing reef and offers the best snorkeling on the island, also surfing and the mountain backdrop creates amazing views. At the end of the road is the dramatic Ke'e beach. Besides its great snorkeling, and sunsets, this is the gateway to the amazing Napali Coast offering one of the worlds most spectacular hikes. The 2 mile hike to Hanakapia'i Beach with it's expansive ocean vistas is a 'must do', but if you can do the additional 2 miles to the Hanakapia'i Falls you're in for the treat of a lifetime. A large pool fed by a 300' waterfall, just spectacular!! Wainiha is surrounded by the best snorkeling, surfing, kayaking and hiking on all of the Hawaiian islands. You'll never have to leave this magical corner of the island.
Just 4 miles away is Hanalei Bay with its pristine 3 mile crescent beach of fine sand and perfect surf. The quaint town of Hanalei offers interesting shops, a market, and world class dining. My personal favorites are 'Tahiti Nui' (live music, good Mai Tais) and the 'Dolphin' (freshest sushi you've ever eaten). You can rent kayaks and paddle up the Hanalei river or out to the bay, paddle to Hideaways beach and snorkel, or just land at the St. Regis beach and have lunch at the poolside cafe, (sneak a dip in their beautiful pool). Also you can go Horseback Riding or Ziplining at the Princeville Ranch, or take the amazing Helicoptor ride from the Princeville Heliport. Or do it my way, just take a book and relax on a quiet beach. You'll have your private paradise waiting for your every day when you're ready to go home.

5/5 Excellent

Super awesome place
We had a great 6 night stay. The property is so beautiful, you can see a waterfall! We enjoyed watching the lizards and birds. Bring bug repellent though. I got about 15 mosquito bites within the first 5 minutes of arriving. Hot tub and pool were really nice. The property is in a great place to access the cool stuff in the area.

Beautiful get away
Amazing location in Kauai for anyone looking to skip resorts.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Worst stay ever. Our biggest regret of our vacation was booking this place. First of all, it was not clean, there was literally hair in the drawer with the eating utensils. And the towels had the most terrible odor, like so gross. And the location is TERRIBLE. It’s the most rainy area on the island, poured down the entire time. Rained so hard they closed the Hanalei bridge which means you’re stranded. We missed our luau because we were stuck on that side bored out of our minds in the pouring rain. Due to the rain we never got to enjoy the pool either. Also it’s not as advertised, there wasn’t any fruit to pick...We were wishing we had just stayed on the south side the entire time, we had a great time there, better weather, and most of the activities are located there. If you really want north side maybe princeville area just make sure you’re on the other side of the bridge. Waniha is a terrible terrible place to stay. We actually checked out a little early to a hotel on south side for a good last day when the bridge opened. Such a waste of our last few days just sitting at home in the rain & flash flooding :(
Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2020

Spiritual Experience
Everything about this place us invigorating. A feast for the senses. I only hope i can return again the Wainiha valley. Thank you Koko for your tasty gifts and warm conversation...and thank you Jeffrey, for your willingness to share your paradise with us. We had a marvelous, awe inspiring and cozy time.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing In paradise
If you want to get away and experience a real tropical paradise, rent this place. The Hot tub and cool off pool were awesome and with close proximity to Hanalei to get provisions or go out for a meal.
