About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This entirely renovated private oceanfront view retreat on the North Shore of Kauai in Wainiha on the edge of Hanalei is perfect for short- or long-term getaways for family or friends seeking luxurious accommodations with breathtaking views. Discover the relaxing elegance of Kauai, where hectic modern life is a remote memory and tropical splendor is your reality for a day, week or month at a time.

The Vacation Home: Located by the stunning blue Pacific Ocean, Kauai Paradise House is a truly unique oceanfront and riverfront property featuring a private beach to walk to, oceanfront views, 3 king-bed suites (the third of which can be converted to 2 twin beds if desired), gourmet kitchen, travertine tile floors, 3 marble bathrooms, great room with entertainment center, covered lanai, lush backyard, and private deck.

This sophisticated home with a resort feel boasts thoughtful touches throughout, including Tommy Bahama furniture, luxury linens, dual master suites with king-size beds and walk-in showers, new gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances (including blender and coffee maker), marble guest bathroom with large walk-in shower, spacious family room with TV and DVD/CD player, high-speed Internet, telephone, TVs and DVDs in every bedroom, gas BBQ on the covered lanai overlooking the deep blue sea, and private oceanfront deck.

The Island: Kauai, the 'Garden Island,' is composed of a diverse terrain that is home to rain forests, canyons, cliffs and beaches. To the north is the rugged Na Pali district, with peaks as high as 4,000 feet, and remnants of ancient places of worship. On the island's east side, the Wailua River wends its way through dense forests and plunges over waterfalls before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. To the south is the tourist district, once the vacation destination of royalty. On the west side, is the sleepy town of Waimea, near where Captain Cook first landed. In the center of the island is Mount Wai'ale'ale, the Earth's rainiest spot.

Activities: In addition to the private beach in front of your vacation home, which is with in walking distance, you can drive a few minutes north or south for world-famous surfing, diving and snorkeling at Tunnels Beach, or continue past the wet and dry caves to the end of the road at Haena. Snorkel there, or start your North Shore hike along Kauai's famed Na Pali coastline. Also available nearby are scuba diving, wind-surfing, sailing, deep sea fishing, submarine tours, top-flight golf courses, spas, hiking, horseback riding, helicopter tours, and shopping and dining. Rent a kayak or SUP and paddle along the Hanalei river. Alternatively, you can just relax on the lanai or private deck in the ocean breeze, or stroll across the street for the daily paper and a cup of coffee and exotic island snack at the historic Wainiha General Store, or for an authentic Hawaiian lunch or dinner, Sushi Girl is a convenient choice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Opening the front door, we knew we had found paradise. Your home is just too beautiful for words. It was like winning the lotto! This was our 10th time to Hawaii, and we could not have spent it at a better place.

This was a lovely home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! The north shore of Kauai is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and this lovely home, located in Wainiha, is in a perfect setting. West of Princeville, the road narrows, there is less commercial development, things are quieter, and the crowds disappear. The layout of the home was perfect; three very lovely bedrooms, each with a modern, recently renovated bath. The main living/dining area and kitchen look out onto the patio which overlooks the Wainiha River, with a lovely, secluded, essentially abandoned beach on the other side. From the patio, the river and ocean views are spectacular. We literally watched whales breach from the patio. There are homes on each side of this residence, but the back yard is extremely private. The beach across the river has some bonefish for anyone who is interested in that. Just a few miles to the west, the road ends at lovely Ke'e beach which is also the start of the Kalalau Trail, which is a world class hiking destination. From there, you can hike down the spectacular Napali Coast to beaches and huge waterfalls with amazing views along the whole way. From the house, there are beaches along the road in both directions with easy access and parking. Good surfing in many spots. Right across the street from the house is the Wainiha General Store, which was a cool, funky place with many important staples (like beer and wine) and nice people. There are also a couple of food vendors there to pick up coffee, sandwiches or a smoothie. There were some good restaurants in the area, and we very much enjoyed buying fresh tuna at a local fish market and cooking on the grill. The home is neat, well maintained and clean. The owner Victoria was very helpful, accommodating and easy to reach. I highly recommend this lovely home and hope to return again next year.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for your kind words. Our slice of paradise is the most magical location and we are so pleased you feel the same way. Thank you for the pictures of the whale sightings from the home. They do come close so it is a great advantage to come during our whale season. We look forward to your return next year and know you will have another fantastic vacation.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what an amazing place in one of the worlds most beautiful tropical settings. This Home has it all. Incredible views of both the river and beach, it is close enough to wonderful restaurants and beaches like Hanalei Bay but just far enough away from the tourist areas to allow you to completely unwind and find your Aloha! The home is beautiful and was perfect for my parents and our two teenage children. The three master suites are perfect for six people and allowed for privacy! I loved the open floor plan with great room and bar as well as the attractive finishes throughout. I have to say that I am still missing my morning Kona coffee on the covered Lanai outside my bedroom suite and the sound and smells of the ocean breeze. YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE!

Thank you Victoria for an incredible Island get away!

Wonderful home on ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, very roomy, highly recommended! You could not go wrong staying here for your next vacation. We were delighted to find this home has everything needed to make you feel like your at home, and the location is fabulously scenic, right on a river outlet that flows into the ocean. We loved sitting on the huge shaded deck while watching the ocean waves. Sitting on the sunny deck to catch some rays was also a joy. The winter ocean was intense with huge waves like we have never seen crashing on shore and the sandbar changed its shape daily. Leaving the doors open at night, we fell asleep to the crashing waves, talk about heaven!!! We were even treated to the locals surfing. We ventured across the river on to the sandbar and looked for shells and hung out. If your not into the tourist scene this is the place to be! Great hiking trails right up the road, only minutes from the Napali coast, caves, many other beaches and awesome views. Our regrets are we did not stay here for our full two weeks while we were in the Hawaii Islands, which we would have preferred. We stayed at other places around the same price, but the other places did not even compare. We will come back one day with more friends, or family, and will for sure stay here! Our stay here was the highlight of our 2 week vacation!!!!

Comfortable and Well-Equiped House

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week at this house. The views are gorgeous. The house was very clean and well-maintained. We were three adult couple plus a 6-month old baby. The two main bedrooms and baths on either end of the house are spacious, comfortable, and have lovely ocean views. Beds were comfortable. The third bedroom is quite tight, has twin beds, and is on the noisy & bright road side. It does, at least, have a private bathroom. In hindsight, I would only suggest that room for older kids. The kitchen was well equipped. We cooked many meals there. Used the gas grill. Spent a lot of time on the covered lanai. The location is convenient for all the north shore sights as long as you have a car. You do need to drive to get to a good-sized beach. You can swim/paddle across the river out in front of the house (pretty cold) to get to the little strip of beach across, but it is not convenient. If you are sensitive to noise, the neighbor has a rooster, and another has some hounds that howl like crazy at feeding time. We appreciated the boogie boards and snorkeling gear provided so that we didn't need to rent any of that. There was a nice high chair. We had to rent the pack 'n play at $10/night which seemed silly- should just be provided since they are cheap to buy. Having the convenience store across the street was handy and seemed to be the meeting place for all the local police. Hot Mamas (referred to in other reviews) went out of business while we were there. In town, we enjoyed meals at Postcards, Hanalei Gourmet, & Bouchon's. Had a nice time sitting at the bar at Bar Acuda. We did the 6-hour Captain Sundown Na Pali coast boat tour & snorkel and enjoyed that a lot. We also did the Sunshine helicopter tour which was a real treat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. Just wanted to mention that this guests comments on any noise in the neighborhood is not the norm. The main sound you hear is the sound of the ocean and since there are roosters all over the island you are bound to hear one from time to time. No neighbors have any pet roosters, as most people know since hurricane Iniki, the roosters were re-located all over the island and live off the land. The road near the house has a speed limit of 15, so there usually is very little noise as the house sits back from there, is well built, and faces the ocean, causing very little if any noise. We have never seen the local police hang out at the last chance store but it must have been comforting to know they are around since they are rarely seen. We have had so many guests enjoy this beautiful slice of paradise and hope that you will read all the comments which truly explain the wonderful experience most all our guests have had. Aloha.

This place was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This house was in the perfect location. Out the back door was a comfortably furnished lanai, a nice well kept grassy backyard, beautiful views/access to the ocean, and out the front door was the convenient little Last Chance market, and delicious Red Hot Mamas take-out. Just down the road past the house are lots of beaches including Tunnels and Ke'e beach (which are both great for snorkeling, lounging), as well as access to the Na Pali Coast via Kalalau trail which is just 3-1/2miles from the house where the road actually ends. Being at this end of the island means if you wake up fairly early, you may have privacy out on the water, at the beach, or hiking before visitors from other parts of the island load in (which they did, it was a busy time of the year while we were visiting). The house was an awesome place to spend the day; there was really no need to leave because it provided everything necessary for a relaxing day. There is a ton of comfy lawn furniture and beach towels, floaties, a raft, and Boogie boards and fins to float across the river to the private beach, there's a dinning table for six, nice showers, good ventilation and fans to keep the temp right, a nice updated kitchen to cook with the necessary utensils and appliances including a couple blenders so you can keep those fruit smoothies and cocktails flowing. Our group was three couples and we thought all of the bedrooms were great though I would like to mention that the third "master" (or two twins) is definitely smaller than the other two, it has a really nice bathroom but which is also significantly smaller, it doesn't have an ocean view out the bedroom, instead the window faces the road and the Last Chance market leaves their lights on at night so it can be bright coming through the window even with the blinds closed. But when you are spending all day spoiled with views of the ocean it shouldn't be too heartbreaking to be without the view while you're sleeping; just leave the bedroom door open and you will still hear the lull of the sea to put you to sleep. Great place, Iw ill definitely recommend it to others. Thanks!!

Wonderful vist to Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd different island to visit. What a wonderful place to stay, just what I was looking for. The view out the back porch was as good as the pictures. The home was clean and quiet, with plenty of room for 5 adults. Quiet even though right out the front door was the Last Chance Store and Hwy 56. However, the road ended just 3 miles away at Ke'e Beach so the traffic was not heavy even on Memorial Day weekend. The home is well stocked with dishes etc, and even a supply of beach chairs, mats, beach towels and rafts, not to mention a washer and dryer (pack light & wash). The owners were friendly and very helpful. Just down the road to the east (10 min scenic drive) was Hanalei, with a fantastic beach, and a bunch of small restaurants, small shops, grocery etc. Rent snorkle gear at Snorkel Depot in Hanalei. And don't miss Mai Tais, pizza and live music at the Tahiti Nui. The Post Card Cafe was beautifu with excellent food, but expensive, the fish market had excellent selection and the Kountry Kitchen in Kapaa had macadamia nut pancakes to die for.

Two pieces of advice, and this is by no means criticism. This area is fairly remote, so don't go expecting to find a lot of night life or shopping. This is NOT a resort, so it is relaxed and quiet and a long way from almost everywhere else on the island (but the beaches), but you will have to make your own Pina Coloda here or drive into Hanalei.. This house has no airconditioning. I usually want it but the sea breeze and ceiling fans kept every thing very comfortable. But if you need airconditioning consider this. Last, a suggestion; the step from the deck to the river was long, and slippery, especially at low tide. I would suggest one last step or a platform closer to the water.
