Great House, Fantastic Location, Awesome Beach
This place is amazing. House layout is cool and the amenities (kitchen, beach toys, wifi, tv, etc.) are all well thought out. Clearly the owner cares about the property. This rental is essentially a guest house located right behind one of the larger villa style houses. The backyard is really nice as well, and very private. <br />
Proximity to the beach (right across the street from a relatively private strip of Anini beach) is fantastic and cannot be understated. Presumably, you're thinking of renting this place for the beach and it will not disappoint - it is beautiful.. This area is especially good for younger kids (we brought along our 6, 4 and an 18 mo. old) because Anini beach has a large reef that prevents the surf from reaching the beach. Consequently, the water is both very calm (like a lake) and really shallow. The snorkeling is reasonable, lots of fish to see, but the coral isn't the prettiest. <br />
Not really many things to complain about with this rental. As some of the other reviews have mentioned, there is no AC. There are many fans provided though. Personally, I like feeling the humidity, I'm visiting to experience that climate in full. <br />
To summarize: This is an amazing place. <br />
Very Quiet and Peaceful
The Hale was clean and everything was as stated. Quiet and peaceful, Little road traffic on week days, Right across the road from Anini beach with magnificent views and shady trees. The beach was uncrowded and wonderful. Great Views of Kilauea Pt light and fantastic sunsets.<br />
Fresh fish every night at the Blue Dolphin Market in Hanalei.<br />
Big Tim's Burger at the Hanalei Gourmet is the Bomb, when washed down with cold Mai Tais.<br />
We would definitely stay there again.<br />
Power was off for two nights we were there and wasn't restored till the next day, but that was on KUIC not the owners. Internet was also spotty and didn't work consistently, So if you must work, have internet etc, need Netflix to survive.., you may want to check first. <br />
Mahalo Nui Loa<br />
What a perfect location and semi private beach area. The house had everything we needed and more.
A private back garden area was perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The rooms are cozy and the rental was clean. We enjoyed our stay very much and will likely return very soon.
We loved Anini Ohana Hale! The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable. The beds were very comfy! We loved the “shower with a view”! It was a treat! The beach access was great too! Far enough away from the public access to keep it quiet and uncrowded. We loved snorkeling with the turtles! And loved being able to sit in the shade with your toes in the water! <br />
I do have to admit that I missed AC....I know most houses don’t have it and it’s very expensive. The house did get hot in the afternoon if the winds were light and the sun was out. But all in all this house was great and had everything we needed! We grilled a great dinner one night and made breakfast every morning. Anini is special! <br />
I would definitely come back if I’m lucky enough to do so.<br />
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Lori! We're so glad you enjoyed a stay at this lovely ocean view cottage. Each room provides a ceiling fan to promote a fresh ocean breeze throughout the home, for a little extra cooling off after a long day of fun. We would love to host you again for another great vacation experience!
Beautiful holiday home
We just spent one week in the beautiful Anini Ohana Hale and we had an amazing time. Our family of four loved the light, airy, and spacious house. The house had everything you could possibly need, from a super well equipped kitchen, laundry essentials, books and puzzles to all the beach equipment (beach buggy, sand toys, snorkeling masks, beach chair etc) - everything was there. The house has a beautiful back yard with a seating corner and a BBQ, so we often ate outside. But the best for us was the location directly opposite of beautiful Anini beach, we walked over to the beach several times a day, it's perfect for kids and very quiet. There are many trees to sit under in the shade, the beach is perfect for snorkeling or just playing in the water. Most of the time it felt like our private beach. We miss it a lot already. All in all it was a wonderful and special holiday in Kauai - thank you for sharing this beautiful house, we'd come back any time!
Thank you for your great feedback, Romy! Your experience at the house sounds amazing and we are so happy that you got to enjoy the beach! We hope to have you back again soon!
Anini beach rental
Great location. More spacious than I expected. We had an issue with wifi on the first day but the hosts sorted out.
