Our family of 4 had a lovely stay in the beachfront cottage for 9 nights. Although the cottage is small, it did not feel confining. It was well equipped and had everything we needed to make dinner, relax on the beach and play in the ocean. It was a pleasant 10 minute walk to downtown Hanalei. We had a nice view of the ocean and the walk to beautiful Hanalei Bay was nearly a hop, skip and jump. Both the property manager, Brian, and property caretaker, Jimmy, were delightful to deal with. We will be returning soon.
I just wrote the below review for a potential guest who had commented on the lack of reviews available for this house, so thought I would add it here for future visitors!
We absolutely loved it!
It is the perfect relaxed, island beach house.
The location in our opinion is hard to beat. It’s literally a walk across the lawn to the beach and it’s about an 8-10 minute walk up to the restaurants and cafes of Hanalei Bay. It is down the quieter end of the beach, which was a bonus for us.
Both bedrooms are of equal size, which is good (we went with another couple). The bathroom is on the smaller side but perfectly fine. The kitchen is great and has everything you need. There is a lovely, large lanai for relaxing outside.
The only functioning aircon is in the loungeroom. The bedrooms have ceiling fans which was good for sleeping.
In short, for the money, we just couldn’t recommend it enough. I would have stayed a month.
One thing to note, is that the house in the photo on VRBO isn’t the actual cottage you’d be staying in, it’s the larger main house. The cottage is behind that larger main house – so the perspective and view in that photo is taken from the lanai of the guest cottage. It took me a while of looking at different photos on different websites before we got there, to work out that the house in question was not actually the house in the photo!
Having said that, while we were there, there was a family staying in the main house. They were lovely and friendly and short of a few ‘hellos’ when we crossed paths, we didn’t even know they were there most of the time.
Hanalei Bay is paradise on earth and the cottage is fantastic. We will be back!
Stayed 1 week in the upstairs beachfront estate cottage in early September 2013. Very nice, steps from the beach, short walk to town, quiet. Jimmy the caretaker very helpful, fun and friendly. This is such a gorgeous place on the planet, and it would be hard to come away with anything but great memories and positive comments. That being said, I feel like the most helpful reviews are the ones that do point out the few things (very few!) that might not be 100% perfect. Really, the only thing that fell into that category was the air conditioning. There was nothing wrong with it, but I really wanted to be able to keep the windows open so we could hear the ocean at night while we slept, but the air-conditioning will blow a fuse and kick off if you run it with the windows open. And it was very hot in the bedrooms without the air-conditioning on. So, we either had to turn on the A/C and shut the windows, or leave the windows open and turn on the fan, which also drowned out the ocean sounds. Other than that, it was really close to perfect. A bit pricey for us, as we were just 1 couple....but we really wanted to be right on the beach, so we splurged. If you had a second couple to share the cost with, it would be a no-brainer!
