HANALEI MOON BEACH COTTAGE, FROM YOUR LANAI 2 GRASS, 2 SAND & SEA

Hanalei House Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront Cottage on Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii

HMBC

Hanalei Moon Beach Cottage here in the middle of Hanalei Bay can be yours! The Cottage is named after the famous Hawaiian song 'Hanalei Moon,' which extols the extreme beauty and romance of the Hanalei Valley under the tropical night sky.

The cottage is located on the quiet end of town on Weke Road, only grass between you and the sand, on 1/3 acre within walking distance of all the restaurants, shops and galleries. Waterfalls are the backdrop for our little beach house.

There is a complete cozy kitchen where you can whip up fabulous food from the Hanalei Fish Market, the Farmer's Market, or just make snacks to go and eat out every night in one of the great local restaurants.

A Chinese lemon tree is just outside your bedroom window for drinks or pies. The bedroom has a king size bed and lights for reading at night & a flat screen TV. It has a separate bathroom entrance.

We have a little library for your use and quite a few great books on Kauai and Hawaii in general. A twin size pune'e in the central room can accomadate another guest and there is a folding futon for the way youger set.

We have a little telescope in the living room so that you can better see boats, whales, and dolphins ply the Bay by day and enjoy the moon and stars at night. In the summer you will see boats, stand up paddlers kite surfers, and all manner of ocean craft right from your living room and the adjoining covered lanai. In the winter you will see surfers.

If you're lucky, you may see a moon bow, something I have only seen in Hanalei. It will happen on a night when there are stars, moon and clouds together. If the clouds are sailing by on the gentle trade winds and shedding some tears, the rain will be illuminated by the moon shining from the cloudless part of the sky. Talk about breathtaking! Depending on the brightness of the moon, you may discern the colors of the rainbow.

Snorkeling, swimming, diving, paddling, hiking, golfing and a health club are all as close as your front yard, to as far as a 10 minute drive away. Walk across your front yard and look to the left; you're likely to see no one for a mile. Look to the right and you'll probably see surfers, volley ball players and beach-goers, with the Hanalei Pier at the far end of the Bay in the background.

There is a neat outside hot & cold shower for after the beach or under the stars and a washer & dryer on the side of the house.

You can book on line at our family's web site, beachkauai.com.

Lovely return visit!

  • 5 of 5
This was our third time staying in Moon Beach Cottage (and last year we stayed at another one their properties) and it really is a little slice of heaven. The cottage is situated right on Hanalei Bay, with ocean views right outside your living room window. We took walks on the beach every morning and BBQ'd on the last at night several times. Just the most relaxing vacation!

spring break haven

  • 5 of 5
This is the second April week we spent at this spot. Different weather, different sights - equally wonderful. We wanted quiet and privacy and views and that is exactly what we got. We love this cottage as a base for exploring the island. Everything you need is there. We highly recommend the property.

Laid-back Getaway

  • 4 of 5
Our stay here was quite happy despite mostly rainy weather. The proximity to the beach is sensational. There are three other cottages on the property but it still felt very private. We enjoyed the outdoor shower and beach equipment. Overall the cottage was clean, comfortable and well supplied. Two improvements we would have appreciated would have been a better coffee maker (more than two cups) and a propane barbecue. But overall this is a very special location which we feel fortunate to have enjoyed.

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect little beach house. The view is straight out to the ocean. It's walking distance to town where there are several restaurants but we found the fish market and ate in instead since the restaurants didn't have as good a view as the cottage.

Amazing Location, Super Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Hanalei Moon Beach Cottage over Thanksgiving, and we couldn't have asked for a better location. The cottage is the perfect size for two people, and the living room has an amazing view of the ocean. It literally takes about 30 seconds to get to the beach - just walk across the grass, and you're there! The cottage itself is not terribly modern, but everything is clean and works well; we had no complaints about anything. Hanalei's shops and restaurants are about a mile away - it would've been nice to be a little bit closer, but the walk is only 15-20 minutes, and given the choice of being closer to the town or the beach, I'd rather have the beach. Overall, we had a great stay, and we'd like to return to the cottage in the future.

Unbeatable location, some things lacking

  • 4 of 5
This place has an unbeatable location. The views at the house are incredible (beach in front, mountains at your back) and having one of the best beaches right in front is an amazing experience. It was extremely relaxing getting to fall asleep to the waves crashing on the beach. We were greeted with a welcome basket as well, which was a nice touch. The house was clean and the photos represent the house fairly well. My husband and I came for our honeymoon and it is the perfect place for this type of trip.

The location, despite being in the northern section if the island, is still relatively convenient to everywhere (within one to a little over two hours. Note that traffic north of the airport can be bad at certain times of day. There is enough to see and do close to the cottage that you don't necessarily need to travel far to do great activities.

Not that it really impacted our stay, but there were a few negatives I wanted to mention since all other reviews were extremely positive. I can't rate the place higher since the house was not well stocked for us. No extra rolls of toilet paper, paper towels, barely any cleaner in kitchen for wiping counters, minimal laundry detergent to name a few was disappointing given the cost and what I would have expected for an extended stay (and amenities described with the house). It almost felt like the owner was banking on the visitors resupplying the house during their stay, which as I mentioned before was not gratifying. Other cons are no air conditioning (it got hot during daytime hours) and no dishwasher (which I think is a must to ensure dishes are fully clean/sanitized between visitors). The house is also right next to a couple other homes, so it is not as private as you might expect from the photos, especially since windows have to be open all the time.

We had a great visit and I wouldn't say these things are enough for me to not recommend this place, but wanted to bring them up so others can compare this more accurately to other rentals.

Owner's Response: I checked with our cleaner and she says there is a glass cleaner, a de-greaser, and a bleach type product under the kitchen sink. There are cleaning towels stocked with the extra towels & sheets and labeled as rags. We will make sure there is an extra roll of paper towels under the sink (which these folks may not have gotten), there are generally 2-3 rolls of T.P. under the sink as well as what is on the roll for a stay of a week or less. Charcoal, lighter fluid, and kitchen condiments & various kitchen convenience items are usually replenished by the guests. We have a starter amount of laundry soap or sometimes a lot depending on the previous guests. So sad... there is no dish washer nor will there be. There will not be air conditioning either. There was a recent hot spell without much breeze which these folk may have experienced though it was still lovely at the beach in the shade of the trees and in the water. Usually ceiling fans make the rooms comfortable and there is an opening sky light which allows air to escape from the highest part of the ceiling. Sure glad the other 18 guests were happy with the house & amenities.
