My husband and I just returned from a stay at the Hanalei Beach Suite for two weeks during the end of June and first of July, and we have nothing but rave reviews! The apartment is even better than we expected with beautiful hardwood floors and granite countertops and tile work in the bathroom, and plenty spacious even after our adult daughter joined us for the second week; she slept on the futon in the living room and said it was very comfortable. For my husband and I, waking up to amazing views of the mountains and waterfalls was a wonderful and relaxing way to start each day. Best of all, the beach really is just steps away--no packing the car and hoping we didn't forget anything, and fighting to get a parking spot in the tiny beach parking areas--just walk to across the street and you're there. On Saturday mornings we walked to the farmers market, and in to town for coffee, etc, everything is in walking distance. In the evenings we sometimes walked to Bouchons or Kalypso for drinks and appetizers, or dinner, or to the store for supplies. My husband could even walk to his surfing lessons. It was the perfect location.
Jana and Brydan were great hosts, available whenever we had a question, or needed anything. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood with lots of tropical trees and bushes and even a peek at the ocean from the lanai. All in all the best vacation we've ever had in Kauai--we'll definitely be back!
