: Kilauea Market
Privacy, convenient location (15 min to Hanalei), and views, views, views!!! Our home is perched on the slopes of Namahana Mountain and the edge of the Halalea Forest Reserve, on a secluded lot with lots of acreage and no other homesites to see for miles. At the same time you are just minutes to the world class beaches of Kauai's North Shore. Beautiful Kalihiwai Bay is tranquil and glassy in the summertime and perfect for family fun, but in wintertime the big swells roll in, gracing us with some of the best advanced surfing conditions you can see.
Even closer to home, Pilates Kauai, the best personal training studio on the North Shore, is just a pop through our palm hedge.
Kilauea town is also a short drive down the mountain and provides necessities like groceries and gas (and yoga!) in a cute and funky small-town setting. The Kilauea Fish Market is a must-do for lunch or dinner. Its Ahi Wrap was recently featured on the Travel Channel's 'The Best Thing I Ever Ate.'
World famous Hanalei town is the quintessential beach town, with a laid-back, happy vibe that only Kauai can create. Coffee, beach boutiques, yoga, surfboard rental: you'll find it all here. Local health food store Harvest has the best lunch in town and make sure you stop at the Hanalei Dolphin's fish market to stock your fridge with goodies like Ono Salad. Try your hand at stand-up paddling the Hanalei River for an easy but satisfying adventure, with views of Hanalei Valley's taro fields and panoramic mountains.
Returning home to your mountaintop retreat could quite possibly be the most beautiful drive home you'll ever experience.
