Guestbook comments from the owner

"Perfect location, perfect accomodation and Bonnie was brilliant! We loved having lazy evenings barbequing and sipping cocktails on the beautiful veranda. The beaches were all fabulous-Pipeline with its cooling breezes, Sunset with its balmy water and Waimea Bay with its pristine azure's easy to see why the sailor on the Bounty/Cooke thought islands like this were paradise!

Amazing location and conscientious owners

  • 5 of 5

The location is impossible to beat. Beach access right from the yard. It has a huge lanai and well-kept grounds. It has private, gated parking and entry. The owner was extremely gracious and helpful, before, during, and even when we needed help with a couple things afterwards. Highly, highly recommended!

This review will not do the house or location justice....but I will do my best

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the beautiful Hale Kai Nani earlier this month for 5 nights. It was too short - we should have amended our plans and stayed longer if possible. We have just returned home to Western Australia, and our plans have started as to when we can return to Hawai'i.

Hale Kai Nani is in a wonderful part of the world. We (one by one) ate at all the local food trucks, walked to Ted's Bakery for delish butter croissants each morning (way better than Bouchon's in LA!), went surfing & paddle boarding, we went shopping (Haleiwa has some fab shops, especially 'Guava'), cooked a true American BBQ on the grill, fired up the torches by the BBQ as they looked fantastic at night, found a good coffee shop with a great barista who made exceptional coffee (Coffee Gallery), toasted and ate loads of marshmallows, was put in touch with a local fisherman (who was a friend of a brother in law's friend etc..) to get freshly caught ahi fish for dinner, we read our books, we watched the kids play together on the grass while enjoying a glass of wine, we all laugh lots and were silly, we played cards competitively for sheep stations, we all breathed in life and stopped for a short while to enjoy our own bubble of paradise, as a family.

The house is comfortable, extremely clean and has everything you need. It is the quintessential beach house in that the decor is perfect for the surroundings but not to precious that you can't pop your feet up on the coffee table or curl up on the couch. The kitchen is well resourced and all you need to prepare a meal is there, and then some.

Jenny and Stephanie are terrific communicators and were in touch with all relevant information we needed, as we needed it. Thank you ladies.

If you are reading this and are still weighing up which house/location to go to, I would not hesitate to recommend staying at Hale Kai Nani. It's simply wonderful.

Great location and well-maintained

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect with direct beach access from outside. Well-decorated and with functioning, modern appliances. Great lanai with a grill. Good cooling during the hot hours. Plenty of windows and light. Kitchen is well-stocked with cooking utinsels. Grounds are lovely and well-kept. Private car port and a gate. Owner is professional and responsive. We only wish there was recycling available, even if someone came and picked it up, as this is very important to us. But just a small detail on an overall wonderful property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! We look forward to having you back next year for a future stay! WE are happy you loved our property as much as we do! It's a very special place on the North you mentioned, via voicemail, you visit several times/year and this is the Best Location and cleanest property you have encountered. We take great pride in making our home a place "we would want to stay in." Thanks again for choosing "The Best Beachfront Location at Sunset Beach!" See you next time.... On another note.... We agree with your request for recycle. Unfortunately, we have been informed the oversized recycle garbage collection vehicles cannot fit down our charming neighborhood street. We can look into ways to work with our guests and garbage collection to help find a solution to the recycling on the NS. Aloha'oe

Amazing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Beyond gorgeous is an understatement! This house in amazing! The location, the space, the view, etc. It is fully equipped with everything you need. We barbecued 2 nights, walked to Teds Bakery, walked to all the popular beaches and took advantage of the beach house as much as we could. We wish we could have stayed here forever! We can't wait to return.

Beautiful, comfortable home on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this awesome house on the North Shore. Location is great - the beach is in your backyard, you're in a quiet neighborhood and walking distance to food and a walking/running path. The best feature of the place is the Lanai - we spent the majority of our waking hours out there, eating meals, reading books and listening to the sound of the ocean. The inside is clean and comfortable - the master bedroom has a great view, and is large enough that we could sleep in the same room as our 9 month old sleeping in a crib. The kitchen has all the tools/appliances you need for cooking, and there is a good inside dining space if you're overheating on the lanai. The bathrooms are in good shape, and so is the laundry.

Overall, we'd definitely stay here again. The location is fantastic, and the house itself was perfect for our family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your awesome 5/5 star review! We definitely agree with you that a fabulous feature of our home is the amazing oversized covered lanai. There is room on the lanai for a dining table that seats 6-8 guests, 2 oversized stuffed chairs with ottomans, and a wonderful sofa with coffee table. The spectacular ocean views from the spacious covered lanai can't be beat either!!! It's a must see, must experience kind of place! Warm aloha..........

Beautiful and Magical House!

  • 5 of 5

A dream come true! This house is located right on Sunset Beach in the heart of the North Shore of Hawaii. This property is magical- every little detail has an exquisite touch! The outdoor shower, palm trees, sunsets from the property, the view, the grassy lawn, local Hawaiian flowers, the bbq, and hearing the ocean from each room gives this house its charm! I cannot wait to come back and stay at this house. I was able to relax, swim, and just be present while staying at this house. Thank you for creating an amazing vacation for us! We will 100% be coming back! A+++++++ trip because of this house and its location.
