100 SHADES OF GREEN - LUSHNESS BEYOND BELIEF-TVR 1231-24/7 MGR H. BELL 635-3194

Hanalei House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Buddha said when you can see 100 Shades of Green, you have truly reached heaven. This is the feeling you will have at this beautiful tropical paradise nestled in the Wainiha River Valley, near Hanalei. Lush vegetation - palm trees, banana trees, flowering ginger, jasmine, ti, ferns, even orchids surround you on the property. It's a lush jungle spot away from all the cares of the outside world, yet with all the amenities and comforts of a modern home. You now can even see and hear the Wainiha river down the hill below the house.

The house is open, comfortable and reflective of the sensibilities of its artist-owner. Indoors or out there is plenty of space and comfort and a mountain view from every room. The master suite upstairs is 600 sq. feet and has its own tub, shower, lanai, and even a fireplace. Downstairs are two more good sized bedrooms with new bamboo floors, separate full bath and a large open living room, complete kitchen and dining area And the piece de resistance is the huge outdoor screened-in lanai on which to dine, relax on the couch or in the hammock (dangerous), listen to the sounds of the Wainiha Valley, and more.

100 Shades of Green is a tropical paradise. It is, however, in a residential neighborhood. It is private, but there are neighbors. It is for couples and families who enjoy peace and quiet and are into their surroundings and take pleasure from them. It is not a getaway for partying or revelry, loud music and the like. So please be aware and respectful of the environment you are in.

Wainiha Valley & Powerhouse Road: Walk up wonderful windy Powerhouse Road past a variety of tall trees and vegetation, wild jungle, manicured lawns, open views of Wainiha mountain and the mountain ridges - back in time like much of Kauai used to be. Maybe you will see an owl, horse, cow, geese, ducks or Graham Nash. Or slip into the hammock, sit on the lanai, soak in the hot tub, listen to the sound of the river, enjoy the melodic white rumped shama bird or the Japanese yellow eyes flitting amongst the ginger flowers or just watch the banana leaves unfurl while you turn the pages of your book ... you may never leave 100 Shades of Green at all.

Beaches: Walk (or drive) all the way along the incredible stretch of beach from Wainiha (at the bottom of Powerhouse) all the way to to Ke'e at the end of the road and enjoy the many different moods of the waves, coves, surfers, kite surfers, locals, shells searchers, whatever. You will want to stop at Tunnels Beach for snorkeling and swimming and to stare again and again at Makana (we know it as Bali Hai from South Pacific). On past Haena Beach Park to Ke'e for the best sunsets on the island where the jagged NaPali cliffs go right into the crashing sea. And always a safe spot for a swim with its protecting reef, sometimes a turtle or seal in the water or on the beach. And in the opposite direction to Lumahai Beach and Hanalei Bay two more of the most beautiful beaches anywhere on the island or elsewhere for that matter. Time after time you will want to swim and walk the lovely crescent of Hanalei Bay and enjoy the quaint little town. And that only is the beginning of the many gorgeous beaches, with and without famous names, that you will find here. You may never leave the North Shore.

Other North Shore highlights: Hiking the Kalalau trail, one of the top hikes in anyone's book starts at Ke'e Beach. There are also many back roads and other hikes in and around the area, Limahuli public gardens, wet and dry caves, kayaking in Hanalei or on the Napali Coast, shopping in Hanalei, golfing and tennis in Princeville, enjoying the outdoor farmers markets Saturdays and Tuesdays in and near Hanalei, surfing (I stood up and stayed on the wave some distance in my first lesson), and many other activities that await you in this tropical paradise. And that's just the North Shore. Have you died and gone to heaven yet?

We (John on the left and Barry on the right) are both artists and 'retired' although as John reminds me running a rental business is not exactly retired. I had a very popular restaurant in Provincetown, MA for many years and still live there in the summer and fall. I was a government attorney prior to that. This retired time is my third or fourth career. John continues to do sculpture, and as you would see at the house, spheres made from beach debris that has surprising beauty as it spins in the air.

Barry Barnes purchased this house in 2002

Because of the feeling of old Kauai and the old large vegetation. Away from it all and lush and beautiful beyond compare. And an easy comfortable house with room for fruit trees and the like.

Location, location, location. Close to everything but not in the thick of it all. Tranquility. And all that's been said above.

A piece of paradise

Hi Barry,
We had a truly wonderful time at your comfortable house and loved the freedom it allowed us for exploring the surrounding area. All my sons agreed that the nicest beaches in Hawaii ,that they visited, were the ones closest to us in Kauai. ( we were also on the Big Island earlier in our trip). They jumped from the pier in Hanalei endless times . They buried each other in the sand over and over again on Lumahai . They were forever fascinated by the resident crabs( and fish) in the early evening at Ke'e . All the lads( including my husband) loved the outdoor shower! I ,myself ,was partial to the upstairs room and shower(delightful)!
I loved the sound of the rain through the night and how everything green glistened in the morning. I also enjoyed the crisp sounds of the birds in the trees and even the roosters began to sound melodic(!) I took many photos of the sunsets and each is so different and so amazingly stunning . People who see my photos do not believe that the sky can be so vibrant. I tell them "only in Kauai" .
My husband knew about the hawaiian style guitar playing and managed to get to a concert in Hanalei. He has become an avid fan.
We hiked 2 miles( and back) on the Kalalau trail . We visited the Kilauea refuge and were intrigued by the nesting birds. We hiked in the Waimea canyon and my boys experienced the thrill of the water fall. We swam and played (on all the northern beaches around Hanalei and beyond). We ate the most delicious fruit, fish, ice cream and smoothies.
We had an amazing , memorable vacation.
Thank you for sharing your unique home with us.
Thoughts,
M, H, and the lads

A private slice of paradise

Beautifully decorated, private, clean, and very serene. Home is very well appointed and comfortable with artistic touches everywhere. We spent a great deal of time on the screened-in lanai, lazing in the hammock and enjoying the view of the stream and mountains. The outdoor shower is wonderful and we took advantage everyday when returning from beach or just to cool off for a few minutes. Hot tub was very relaxing at night with lots of star viewing, and the BBQ grill and kitchen had everything we needed for cooking all our meals in. The setting feels very integrated into "the real" Hawaii and very close to all the spots we love on the north shore, Hanalei Bay (10 minutes away), Tunnels (5 minutes away), and Ke'e Beach (15 minutes away). Master suite was very private and it was wonderful to wake up to such a magnificent view. Our daughter had ample space in her room downstairs as well as her own tv and bath. Barry left very good directions and also a instructional book in the home that included great details about the home as well as manuals on every appliance. None were needed, but it was great to have them if required.... All in all a wonderful trip to the north shore to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. Very much looking forward to return again soon. Mahalo!

Simply Amazing

WOAH. This place exceeded all of my expectations. Set up in a river valley above Wainiha/Hanalei, 100 Shades did not disappoint.

Master bedroom is the size of a football field, with tall vaulted open-woodwork ceilings, and nicely appointed with a private shower & bath. Guest bedrooms are less dramatic but comfortable. Kitchen is nicely equipped and well kept. Living room is fine with a very large TV (we didn't spend any time in this room, nor did we ever turn on the TV). The Lanai may be 100 Shades' best feature. Very large with comfortable furnishings including a heavenly double hammock. Very nicely decorated with a dozen or so antique surfboards. At first them seemed like kitch, but after some consideration, they reveal themselves as intricate masterpieces of surf artistry. We spent hours and hours on the Lanai. It invites eating, drinking, reading, napping, chatting, and listening to the wild.

The grass yard down to the river is inviting and well kept. Both open and sufficiently private/tropical. Hottub on the deck is OK (small, older model). Outdoor shower is nothing fancy, but it's fun.

House is nicely stocked with travel books, snorkel gear, beach stuff, sarongs, etc... Feels like a real house where real people leave. But still clean and tidy.

North Shore is the best place on the island. Slightly cooler, slightly rainier, but still plenty of warmth and sun. Dramatic cliffs and lush tropical gardens. Can't be beat. Skip the resorts and see Kauai how it was meant to be seen.

I will be back to 100 Shades. Hopefully soon... A real gem by any standard.

So Thankful to Be Here!

How completely we enjoyed 100 Shades of Green! The gardens are just exquisite, and the house equally so. I traveled with a flower expert and a gourmet cook. Each was delighted with 100 Shades. The kitchen is very well-equipped, and we especially enjoyed eating fresh fruit from the garden. All meals were taken on the lanai with the sound of the rushing stream and the soft touch of the tropical breeze. The Jacuzzi was a very welcome luxury. Merely being at 100 Shades made us feel that we were having the ultimate tropical experience. We really had to force ourselves to leave the house each day, in order to see some sights! We will always remember hiking the Kalalau Trail, kayaking on the Hanalei River, and taking a boat trip to see the Na Pali Coast and snorkel off the shore of Ni'ihau. My husband said it so well, when he said of 100 Shades of Green, "I am so thankful to be here."

We have totally enjoyed our stay here at 100 Shades of Green. This is truly
a place for relaxing and re-charging. We have travelled to Kauai many times
and we agree that your home has been our best trip yet. It was perfect to
enjoy breakfast and watch the birds from the lanai. Our days were filled
with our favorite things to do . . .
We thank you for sharing your home with us. You have done a wonderful
job of making it inviting and well-stocked and comfortable. We particularly
enjoyed the Wainiha Quadrangle Top Map. We spent a lot of time orienting
ourselves using it to locate favorite spots. The BIG surprises of coconuts
when they fell on the deck or shed. You had warned us so we were
watching out.
We have to return to real life now. Thank you for providing us a place that
we will always remember.
Mahalo and Aloha.

The house is situated six tenths of a mile up the beautiful Wainiha River valley. In your backyard down the hill is the rushing Wainiha River itself, always there to look at AND listen to. It is like a walk back in time to the way Kauai used to be. Two miles away are many beaches including Haena State Park & Tunnels Beach (of Bali Hai fame and great for snorkeling) and Lumahai Beach (wash that man right out of my hair). A little further is Hanalei Bay and the charming town of Hanalei and Ke'e Beach, the Kalalau trailhead and the NaPali coast. You will want to go to Ke'e almost every day for a swim and sunset. Swimming, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, kite surfing and more are in abundance on the lush North Shore which, to my mind, has all the best beaches on Kauai.
