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. The front house, Aunty Lydia's Ohana is a 3 bedroom 1 bath with carport, most frequently used an a lanai. Inside you will find photos of the 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 5 blocks into 'downtown' Hanalei. There is a great carport for BBQ , eating al fresco & enjoying the mountains and waterfalls. 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, a grassy yard surrounds 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. The wash house with a washer & dryer is just outside. There is a king bed in the largest bedroom at the back of the house. Hanalei is famous for its ever changing mountains; some times veiled in thin mist, sometimes obscured in thick clouds, sometimes full of water falls, 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 chose this area as the eating & hang out spot. 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. Here they are enjoying the carport for BBQing & beach reconnoitring. 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.

This house was clean, private, and surprisingly quiet since it's near the main road. I knew it was an older house, but we were all pleasantly surprised with the size and location. The beds were comfortable and this is important to me. The location is within walking distance to the beach and town. I would definitely recommend the place for groups and families. The owners were helpful with their suggestions(we thought the hurricane might come) and easy to communicate with.
We had a great stay at Aunty Lydia’s! They put the fun in funky! Real Hawaii with a cooler, chairs, boogie boards and a kitchen filled with spices and other goodies. This is no sterile hotel or condo. The outdoor shower with view of the mountains and waterfalls was heavenly! Nice neighbors, loud roosters, 3 minute walk to the beach, 10 minutes to town. Used the carport as our dining and relaxation room. Would definitely stay here again.
I cannot say enough about Aunty Lydia's. The location is unbelievably close to the beach-also walking distance to town and market on Saturdays. The front yard has awesome view of waterfalls-- we saw 6 one day! We were a bit surprised that the neighbors share a lot but they were sooo nice and unobtrusive. All the beach stuff you need! Loved having the chairs. We love cooking, so if you do too, bring any spices and what not bc there was only S & P there. I will definitely stay again. And again! Feels like home the minute you walk through the door.
My husband, 9mo baby, and I enjoyed a perfect week in this lovely home! Aunty Lydia's is perfectly located, as only a short scenic walk into town (10min at most), and 2 min walk to Hanalei Beach. Basic necessities are at the house, such as kitchen cookware, blender, BBQ, and dishes. Beach towels and beach supplies. The washer/dryer came in handy. Everything was clean and tidy. Beautiful mountain view from living room- with 2 waterfalls at the time of our stay. A perfect front lawn with table and chairs, and outdoor shower. We were a little worried that the place was right on the main road, but the yards mature vegetation provided plenty of privacy, and the road was actually not that busy- and we had no issues with noise. The neighbors are so warm and welcoming. It was truly a magical week. I hope to visit Aunty Lydia's Ohana again in the future, and definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing and peaceful getaway in beautiful Hanalei Bay! TIP: Visit nearby farmer's markets to stock up on local foods. We grilled pineapple that was so delicious!
We stayed at Aunty Lydia's at the end of June and loved our stay! We had 3 adults and two kids, 13 and 11. The property was well represented on VRBO and perfectly comfortable for our family. The house is modest, but has great character and had everything we needed, including boogie boards and beach towels. The home was very clean and well-maintained. The bonus was the outdoor shower!
We were a little surprised about the other house on the property, but the residents were super nice and quiet. The proximity to town and the beach was exactly what we were looking for. Walk to everything!
The property management was very helpful and attentive and very easy to communicate with. We really had a trouble free visit. We would definitely recommend Aunty Lydia's to anyone considering and would stay there again!
The property was very clean and well maintained. A short walk to a very nice beach. The town of Hanalei is just down the road with a grocery store, restaurants and shopping. Planning on coming back soon!
