About Christine Larson

I was blessed to experience Kauai as a child. Spending summers here shaped my life and love of nature and the desire to become one with the ocean. My dream was to raise my own family here to experience the same peace and joy, beach and surfing. I held that dream close to my heart, and focused on this goal until it became reality. I never imagined creating a vacation rental property, but as my family grew and the economy changed I was encouraged to share this special location with others who appreciate and want to experience this lifestyle. Knowing that this experience will shape the dreams of other families, creating lasting memories, that kind of goodness is priceless and much more than the statement of a vacation rental.

Why Christine Larson chose Kauai

Make sure your property rental goes perfectly so you can truly relax

What makes this house unique

Rare 1 bedroom on waters edge. Most homes along the coast line as large homes accommodating a larger number of guest. This home is just the right size one to four guest. Make sure you know your groups expectations, if you require pools and maids and air conditioning this is not that kind of accommodations. Our pool is the ocean and the trade winds are our AC. This cottage is comparable to a cabin at the lakes.

Haena Love Shack-Exceeds Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The setting and views of the ocean have to be the best on Kauai!! With only a few steps to the water this home is a true tropical paradise.Nick the owner was very informative and has a great attitude and has thought of every thing you will need.I would recommend this property to anyone who can get here!! We hiked the trails at the end of the road the the views are spectacular. We saw countless whales , sea turtules , and Dolphins. The snorkiling was amazeing. You can not go wrong renting this home.

Magical...the photos can't capture this amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing, restful, and active stay all at once. I share the opinion of other reviewers that I almost don't want people to find out about this place! It's truly exceptional and allows you to experience living on the beach in a great space if even for a few days. Christine and her team are always available for anything you need and the little touches they provide make an amazing location that much better. We loved our time here and were sad to leave even though we had several more days on the island.

The BEST Kauai vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for five nights in July 2017 and it exceeded our already high expectations. Christine and her team sent the most informative emails prior to our arrival to ensure a happy stay. The highlight of the property is how it sits right on the ocean, giving a seemingly private spot on the North Shore of Kauai. The large tree out back provides shade for the home and a spacious shaded area on the sand. We woke up to the sunrise each morning around 6am and listened to the waves roll in. While there is no AC, it is not needed. There are clever vents on each side of the house that allow air flow all day in addition to numerous ceiling and floor fans. The full kitchen and grill let my husband and I operate on island time as we chose to cook for ourselves each night. The washer and dryer were appreciated as it helped us pack less for our trip. The soaking tub overlooking the ocean was my favorite touch! We stayed at a very nice resort for 3 nights following our stay at this property and we'd pick this home over a resort without hesitation! Again, we have nothing but wonderful things to say about our stay :) Thank you to all involved in making our vacation so special!

9 days of bliss

  • 5 of 5

For 2 people I can't imagine there is a better option on the entire island. This little house has everything you could want, convenient location on the north shore, steps away from the ocean and some nice snorkeling, nicely furnished living areas, great kitchen and comfortable king sized bed. The property managers couldn't have been more gracious, helpful and responsive. The complimentary concierge service was phenomenal and steered us to great companies for the adventures we requested and provided great suggestions for lunch, dinner, and sites to see for almost everyday of our stay as well. Add shave ice and a Puka Dog or 2 and you have the ingredients for a great vacation or in our case honeymoon!

No better place for a honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Ugh, I don't want to have write a review as I'd rather keep this place a secret, but since the experience was so great I have to share! First thing, you'll become attached, and not in a good way. I'm bitter at the thought of someone sleeping in our big cozy king bed there! Really though its a wonderful little home, and perfectly placed on the water. The breeze is constant and gentle, so relaxing. On a rainy day we had outcall massage therapists and they could not stop commenting on how cute and relaxing the home was. If you look in the first picture, where the beach curves, there was always a new monk seal spending all day resting there!!! The house is not a 5 star generic luxury condo, rather a more lake house/romantic movie vibe to it. It has so much character, its so unique and individual, we made so many wonderful memories. There is a tad too much reef in the water to swim out front, but I found a decent gap between the reefs if you swim straight out from their storage building, but make sure you're an adequate swimmer! I don't know what else to say, I could babble for hours about this little home, but all you really need to know is if you're considering it do it, you'll regret it if you don't. We are without a doubt returning, this home holds such a special place in our heart. The owners do such a wonderful job making the stay a breeze! Just don't share it with all your friends, lets keep it a secret ;) Mahalo!
