Best vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

The island of Kauai is our favorite vacation destination. It's unspoiled natural beauty captivates us every year that we visit. The Hanalei Surfboard House is the most unique and comforting rental on Kauai and the only place we choose to stay. This private secluded property has great state-of-the art amenities, is clean, well-maintained, and is conveniently located within a few minutes from hiking, beaches, restaurants, and local grocery stores. Parking is up-front, and the owner/host is always welcoming and excellent with recommendations for activities. We are expecting to book in Dec for our next Kauai vacation. We recommend an early booking since Hanalei is a popular destination spot.

Thank you!

The garden is really quite and lovely. This place is so beautiful and very clean . Feel like a home away home.

We stay 5 days at Elvis Romm , our room had everything we could possibly need , books, beach chairs,towels, bbq.

Simon the owner was an excellent host, very friendly and helpful.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 9 nights at the surfboard house and had a great time. We had the cowgirl room. It's a perfect place for a vacation on Kauai. Hanalei Bay is a great place and the house is perfectly place. It's quiet, clean, roomy, well equipped and the gardens are beautiful. Simon, the owner is very friendly and interesting. We recommend this place with no hesitation!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in the Cowgirl Suite where not a detail was missed. Everything you could ever think of needing was there. From a fully stocked kitchen, bathroom and beach gear to great music and a white noise machine. The location is perfect and walkable to both the beach and town. Simon was the most gracious and informative host. All of his recommendations were spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats with him and this lovely location. We will return. PS. The garden was beautiful. Mahalo, Simon. Paul & Mary

Excellent Hospitality and Local Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Hanalei Surfboard House for a week this Oct. The location was excellent, we were looking for a place with a true local feel (get away from the standard american resorts) and great accommodations. We stayed in the Love Shack - room highly recommended! It has excellent beach/surf/rock-n-roll decor in a private setting w/ private entrance (great place for couples). The location is great beach access about a 30 second walk to Pine Trees surf break/ Hanalei Bay. Simon the owner/host was very gracious, upon arriving he set me up with a neighbor to get a board for the week, gave us the run down on the great local restaurants / famers markets. Overall we had a great experience at the Hanalei Surfboard House it provided the laid back while maintaining an extremely active vacation with local feel that we were looking for. We stayed the last two nights on the island at the St. Regis in Princeville , while accommodations at the St Regis are nice, they where nothing compared to the Hanalei Surfboard House which provide a more personal touch and local feel, we found ourselves leaving the St. regis every morning to go back down near the Surfboard house beach which was much more relaxing and local. Highly recommend Simon and his dream vacation rental property he has created.

My favorite vacation yet!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Elvis suite had everything we needed for the perfect beach retreat! Beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, big comfy beach towels, coolers- everything! The kitchen too was complete with everything we needed to cook delicious fresh seafood from the nearby dolphin restaurant, as well as blend up delicious piña coladas with local Koloa rum. The king size bed was so comfortable with high quality sheets. And the shower, both indoor and outdoor was the best I've ever had! Simon was such a gracious and hospitable host. He made sure we had everything we needed and was available to answer any questions about the area. The beach is literally a 30 second walk from the house and Hanalei bay is the most beautiful beach. This is THE area to stay on Kauai and the surf board house with its ideal location and endless amenities is the perfect place to stay. My husband and I will be back soon!!!
