About the property

House, 1 - 3 Bedrooms, 1 -3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 maximum)

Healoha Hale is just what its name implies, 'a beloved home.' Decorated as a home, not a rental; it will feel like home the minute you walk in!

The waves of Aliomanu Bay are tamed by an off-shore reef so swimming can always be enjoyed while the song of the surf and the off-shore breezes will relax you and cool this incredible planter-style home.

The house consists of a great room with 20+ foot ceilings done in beautiful dark wood and open beams. This is the heart of the house where the extensively appointed kitchen and large dining area will accent the family fun around the comfortable furnishings of living and sitting areas. We are trying to meet our guests' every need and have arranged this lovely home so that it is more 'flexible' to those needs. We now offer the house as a one bedroom, renting the master suite with the kitchen, 'great room,' and all other amenities but locking off the two additional bedroom and bathrooms. We can also rent it as a two bedroom (you choose which bedroom you prefer). You pay only for the amount of house you need! THis offer applies only September - May. Only full house rentals for our peak season of June through Labor Day. See rate schedule for additional information.

Appropriately themed art work throughout the house adds to the 'aloha' feeling. To one side of the great room you will find the sumptuous master suite decorated in jewel tones to accent the rich wood of the ceilings.

There is a glass block trimmed, double-sink bathroom en suite with a tub so deep you will have to struggle to keep your book dry! The king-size, Tempur-pedic mattress will sooth you at night as you lie in bed enjoying the moonrise through the sliding glass doors to the lanai.

On the other side of the great room, the front bedroom boasts a queen-size bed with a new, top-end mattress. Sunrise and moon rise and ocean view also available from this comfortable room.

Between it and the back bedroom, another full bath provides the second deep, soaking tub.

The third bedroom has a pair of twin beds and is decorated with posters from the many movies filmed on Kauai. This bedroom also has a bath en suite with a large, walk-in shower.

The large lanai stretches across the front of the house and provides a magnificent view of the ocean and whales in season. The wonderful landscaping provides privacy from this secluded beach and there is a gate to the sandy oceanfront, less than 80 feet from the door!

The yard of Healoha Hale is a tropical park. Seems like something is always in bloom from the huge plumeria to orchids and many exotic palms.

From the street side, you have wonderful views of the Anahola mountains, a nice lawn for bocci ball and a peaceful place to barbecue.

There are two outside showers for after swimming or just for fun. One is a custom-built lava rock shower and both have hot and cold water.

Healoha Hale is a short drive to Kapa'a where restaurants, groceries, shopping are readily available. It is less than a 30 minute drive to the airport and conveniently located to drive north to the Hanalei area or south towards Poipu.

The owners rented homes on Kauai for many years before settling on this wonderful location and unsurpassed home. They knew that this was 'the one' as soon as they saw it and they think you will agree! Mahalo!

Our Families Favorite Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This by far was our favorite vacation rental property and we have vacationed all over the country! We love to cook and found the kitchen is very well equiped. All of the positive reviews are spot on! The owners are very attentive to details and respond quickly to emails. The art in the home was so amazing! We stumbled upon the art gallery Aloha Images in Kapaa that sells all the artists that hang in this amazing home. We purchased several pieces from Stu that allowed us to bring part of Kauii home with us. We highly recommend visiting Stu at Aloha Images in Kapaa!! Great home, great energy, great location, great accommodations and really comfy beds!! Thanks Cris for sharing your home with us!!

Can't say enough about how special this home is

  • 5 of 5

A huge thanks to Cris and Kauai Vacation Rentals for making our vacation so memorable at Halealoha Hale. There are not words to describe how perfect this home is and how much we hated to leave! We could not have asked for anything more perfect with the semi-private beach right off the deck and convenience of being able to walk just a few steps to the ocean. It was so nice to be able to wake up to the sound of it every morning and walk out the front door to see and smell the plumeria tree in full bloom. We've been to Kauii a few times, but this has been our favorite place to stay, hands down. We hope to be able to return soon and bring friends along next time!

Adding to the reviews

  • 5 of 5

Much has been said in the previous reviews, and I agree with what was posted. So, I'll just add a few things that might help you make a decision or in your planning.

We brought all our snorkeling gear, but that was totally unnecessary. The closet in the laundry area is well-stocked with boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkels, masks, flippers, beach toys, and even a cooler and umbrella - basically everything you'd need to relax on the beach.

I rented a longboard in Hanalei, but the waves were breaking nicely here in Anahola bay so I didn't surf anywhere else. Of course, wave conditions change throughout the year, but while we were here, low tide brought waist-high waves to the bay a few hundred yards to the right of the backyard every morning, and high tide brought in decent rides straight out on the reef.

It was also a perfect place for our kids to explore. Down the beach to the right is a river mouth and lagoon that changes with the tide. Our girls played there every day. On weekdays, they had it pretty much all to themselves. On the weekend, lots of people visit that area, so our kids made lots of friends, but the home is far enough away to still have privacy, even when the bay is crowded.

The reef protects the beach from the big pounding beach break, so it was perfect for us to let our girls explore and swim to their hearts content.

The house and location was perfect. It was exactly what I hoped.

Owner's Response: I am so glad to hear from someone who enjoyed the mouth of Anahola Stream for a place for kids. I often suggest this to potential guests and am glad that it was enjoyed. SO glad you liked the house. Come back soon! Mahalo, Cris

What is not to love

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples celebrating gratitude & blessings, and this home was perfect. We all tried to get the best photos of the awesome sunrise. The area is quiet away from crowds, yet not far to shop.

The owners attention to details of guest comforts is exceptional. We enjoyed making our version of Moco Loco in the well equipped kitchen. The home is very clean & maintained, which is not easy on a beach.

Time on the deck was beautiful as well as the mountain view on the front porch, and lots of beach walks. The water is very nice & great for a swim.

All the reviews say it well.

The photos are all great of this home it is very comfortable. The outdoor showers, very nice (gets all the sand off) one can even shower under the stars!

Mahalo, it was a great time hope to return

private home, nearly private sand beach!

  • 5 of 5

awesome isn't the right word for this PRIVATE home. if you hate the constant crowds and sardine in a can feel of poipu or the other "touristy areas this place is incredible! just a few miles from Princeville and the relaxed feel up north. my wife, two teenagers and I checked it out down south one day and we all agreed it sucked and we all wanted the relaxed feel of anahola!!! the house was a bit big for the four of us but man was it worth it!!

Owner's Response: Aloha James, If the best criticism of our home is that it was a little bit too big, that is great. Glad you enjoyed our home. We love it, too!

Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything was fabulous. From the house to the scenery and the weather. The house worked out perfectly for the 6 of us. It was so nice to be able to come home to the house after sight seeing all day instead of a hotel room. To be able to just relax and listen to the waves and see them right out every window on the entire back side of the house is just amazing. The yard is so beautiful and private. It was nice to be centrally located so it wasn't a long drive to the south or north side of the island. The plumeria tree in the front yard will always be a special place to me being while we were there I was proposed to under the tree. The house was everything the pictures show and much more. You feel like you have your very own private tropical paradise. I would definately stay there again. All 6 of us were very pleased with out time there and it was a very sad day when we had to leave. Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home on Kauai to us.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our home. It is certainly a special place to us also and while I was not proposed to under the plumeria tree, it is indeed, a romantic, tropical paradise. Imagine how romantic it is for just a couple and you will understand why we have so many people who come back every year. We have hosted many honeymoons!
