About Linda Saunders

We decided to purchase this home within hours of first visiting Kauai.

The ocean and mountain views, plus the private grounds, were breathtaking, unlike anything we'd found before. We built the pool and spa and added landscaping. We enjoy this home ourselves as much as possible, living between here and Ohio which is where we are from. Since it is our home, we take special care with upkeep and maintenance and are intimately familiar with all of its features and amenities.

Linda Saunders purchased this house in 2000

Why Linda Saunders chose Kalihiwai

We loved this location because of its privacy and beautifully landscaped grounds and views.

Also because we can access all of the North shore beaches within minutes. Our favorite beach is Secret Beach which is accessed right off our same road - Kalihiwai.

We are not too far from Kapaa and Lihue (airport and main town) either, 30-45 minutes.

What makes this house unique

We mostly enjoy the views and the privacy. We love watching the whales and the albatross in season. Hours of relaxation and fun enjoying the pool, spa, and new hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having stayed on all of the major islands (Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Lanai), this location and this home remains our favorite vacation spot after coming yearly to Hawaii for a full decade. Located on a hilltop that is totally secluded, the views of the ocean are panoramic. The house is simply a treasure. Beautifully appointed and with a well thought out design that allows the trade winds to gently blow through the whole property. The location is perfect for setting up to hit all the north shore beaches easily along with Kilauea and Hanalei, before returning back to the soothing pool and Jacuzzi in the late afternoon. Every detail has been taken care of in the house. It is clear that the owner has spent a lot of time thinking about every possible need for all types of guests.

For the perfect pool and (easy to reach) beach vacation, we haven't found a better home. This was our 2nd visit to Mia Huna and we will certainly be back.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have visited Kauai for 20 years and wanted to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary with a more unique experience. Our expectations were high, but Mia Huna far exceeded them. The appointments of the home are first class and complete. You want for nothing. Whether sitting on the pool deck, in one of the two jacuzzis, the lanai, or in the house, the views are breathtaking and serene. Fall asleep each night to the waves crashing on the shore right below. We felt like we were at our own private resort the seclusion and privacy was so complete. The personal tour of the property upon arrival is a nice touch that makes you feel more comfortable with all the home has to offer, and it has A LOT! From how to operate the TV's to all the light switches, how to operate the jacuzzis or where all the pool toys are kept, it was nice having someone who knows the property walk us through it. It was the perfect place to celebrate!

Extraordinary home and spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

OMG!! Wow! and OMG again! That's what we kept saying from the moment we pulled on to the Botanical-Gardens-like half-mile "driveway". The vegetation and landscaping leading up to the house was just gorgeous and a wonderful prelude of what was to come. Mia Huna's views, furnishings and attention to detail were all extraordinary!

We had high expectations for this home, based on previous reviews and the photos, but we were secretly prepared for something less. However, we were pleasantly pleased by how much this home (estate really) vastly exceeded our expectations. The views, from virtually every angle or window were breathtaking...and not just the ocean views, but the magnificently manicured grounds and beautiful surrounding mountains.

I hope this doesn't sound like hyperbole, because it's not. This is truly an extraordinary and exceptional home. Even the beautiful pool was wonderful. Like everywhere else on the property, we had total privacy at the pool and swam several times a day in silky it's waters. Not sure what made the water so soothing, but it was incredible; like swimming in liquid satin. Before I run out of space or adjectives I do want to give huge credit to the owners for their attention to what their guests need. Everything we could imagine (other than a pony,) was provided for us...and in great condition. It was clean, neat and well-stocked, giving us an immediate "seductive island-breeze" experience. We not only look forward to coming back often in the future, but will recommend this fabulous home to many friends and anyone who wants a fantastic and memorable experience. OMG again!

Excellent Service

  • 5 of 5

Due to a change in an itinerary we will not be able to stay at this great location. However, I do think it's important to note great customer service. From the first communication I had with the owner she was incredibly responsive, professional and listened to the needs of our group that was planning on attending.

I work in a service type of industry as well and am always appreciative of those that "get it". There are many that don't, but these owners definitely do and I'm not surprised at all by the many raving reviews they receive.

It's unfortunate we had a change of schedule but hope to definitely stay here when we're on the island.

Great stay...

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Hawaii frequently (3rd trip this year!) and have been at numerous hotels and homes in Kauai - north and south. This was a last minute trip we squeezed in before our girls started school and how fortunate we were to find this house. We typically have no agenda other than to eat good food, relax, spend time w/eachother and surf - and this house was perfect - away from it all yet close enough to hop into Kilauea for a pizza or some poke at the fish market. The girls loved the pool (hard to find a private pool in Kauai) - our younger daughter even had a sleepover in the guest/pool house w a friend who also happened to be on the island on holiday. Everything you need is in the house so all you need to do is show up. Linda was extremely accommodating and super easy to work with - especially when the recent hurricanes threatened to change our schedule some. We will come back!

The Perfect Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Mia Huna Estate from July 19th to July 26th. We traveled to Hawaii from Cleveland, OH for our honeymoon. When we arrived at Mia Huna, we were instantly taken back by the beauty that this estate has to offer. We were so excited to see what the week had in store for us. The house was very nicely decorated and extremely clean. It was also stocked with everything we could possibly need for our vacation (kitchen appliances, towels, sheets, books, ocean and pool gear, etc!). We spent a lot of time exploring the island during our week on Kauai, doing everything from hiking and taking a boat ride to horseback riding, and even a helicopter ride. The island is so naturally beautiful, sometimes I needed to tell myself that I wasn't having a dream and something this magnificent actually exists. If we weren't out exploring the island, we were lounging by the amazing salt water pool at Mia Huna or enjoying the breathtaking view of the ocean from either hot tub (both have an unbelievable view!). The wrap around porch also allows for some outstanding views of the water and mountains both, and is especially great for viewing the pink & yellow sunsets we had every night and the frequent rainbow. To say we had an amazing honeymoon is an understatement. We could not have picked a better location for our vacation, and we would highly recommend the Mia Huna to anyone. We are already asking our family and friends when they want to join us on our next trip so they can experience an unbelievable week at the Mia Huna like we did.

Fabulous Secluded and Private Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our return to the "Garden Island" was just fabulous! We enjoyed our stay with dear friends and showed them the island as we had remembered it from seven years ago. It's beauty more magnificent then we had remembered from the past!

The house was private and perfect! We especially noticed how well maintained it was and that the owners had paid attention to every detail to make our stay wonderful. We were so secluded and enjoyed the beautiful ocean views, star gazing at night from the hot tub and great times in the pool. We can't thank them enough for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home and we can't wait to come back!

Mahalo Nui Loa!
