About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Office, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our Haena Cottage is perfect for a honeymoon or a romantic getaway. Experience the incredible beauty of the north shore from our 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 1100 sf beach home. Located upstairs, wrap around glass overlooks the beach just 120 steps away. Directly behind is lush jungle hillside, the border to 1000's of acres of private nature conservancy land. All tucked into an secluded, kamani tree lined cul-de-sac between the Wainiha and Haena neighborhoods.

Our Home uniquely blends the “Old Hawaii” flavor with all the up to date amenities and comforts. The great room and large lanai have 270 degree panoramic natural views. The gourmet equipped kitchen has everything a discerning chef will need. Each room has lovely, stylish island decor. Included is an airy king Bedroom with bath, and a small separate office. Grill fresh fish on the gas BBQ in the ocean breeze on our 400 sq ft lanai. There is a separate laundry and and beach gear is provided.

We are located in the heart of the most beautiful 10 miles of the island, close to Tunnels Beach, and set between 2 of the top 5 rated beaches on the islands. You can walk the beach the entire final 2 miles to Ke’e, where the road ends and the famous Napali coast begins. Or you can stroll the beach just 300 yards to the Hanalei Colony Resort, for the only (award winning) restaurant and coffee house on this part of the island. Or just take our beach chairs and head out the few steps to the beach out front!

We are an approved Kauai Vacation Rental TVNC #1051.

About Katie Howland

About the owners Doug, Bev, Miranda, and Katie Howland: Doug and Bev were first drawn to Kauai in the early 80’s, after many visits they finally decided to buy this wonderful property in 2006. Doug, a 35-year designer/builder, has spent the last 10 years personalizing the house. Bev, a jack-of-all-trades, has owned a health food store, opened a charter elementary school, run a motel, and managed their various properties over the years. Their youngest daughter Katie lives in Portland with her older sister Miranda. After a career in the arts, she now manages the family’s properties. Doug and Beverly now migrate between their properties in Arizona, Utah, and Hawaii. They like to hike, horseback ride, ski, practice yoga, whitewater raft, dance, and travel in their free time.

They also have vacation rentals in the Escalante Canyons of Southern Utah and in the town of Sedona in Northern Arizona.

Katie Howland purchased this house in 2006

Why Katie Howland chose Kauai

Doug and Bev were always drawn to the North Shore, when making the decision to put down roots, they couldn’t resist the best part of the island. They fell in love with the unique beauty of their home that balances both accessibility and seclusion.

What makes this house unique

There are many amazing natural wonders right out the front door (see above). This home offers the lush mountainous jungle of Kauai out the back door and the soothing beach and ocean out the front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house! This was the perfect place for us to spend our 10th yr anniversary! Thank you for the gorgeous flowers too!! Loved, loved, loved cooking in this kitchen-it certainly made it a great way to start everyday-omelets & toast; pancakes; french toast; and steaks on the grill were perfect.

We had a chance to meet some neighbors who recommended some local restaurants for dinner. We tried Post Cards and Bar Acuda - must share....Bar Acuda was the BEST meal of the trip! Highly recommend!!

Very peaceful and relaxing stay. Mahalo!

Hidden Hawaiian gem

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at Hale Aloha for our honeymoon! We rented the upstairs, which was extremely spacious for just the two of us, but just what we were looking for. We used the fully equipped kitchen for (almost) every meal, the beach gear, and appreciated the board games for when it rained in the evenings. The bed was super comfy and we slept very well despite some rainstorms and roosters (we grew very fond of them!) The cottage is bright, beautiful and the constant breeze running through the open windows is refreshing.

The location was perfect - close enough to the North Shore beaches, NaPoli Coast and Hanalei Bay and an easy 1 hr drive to Lihue/airport. You really can't complain about the drive to/from the cottage - it was absolutely beautiful and truly magical. We highly recommend this place for other honeymooners or groups who like to do their own thing and want to be on the North Shore.

Enchanting, quiet, restorative.

  • 5 of 5

We anticipated a magical stay but our expectations were exceeded in every moment. The cottage is quiet, quaint and close enough to town to drive in for a quick meal but far enough away to feel secluded. We spent most of our time on the lanai gazing at the ocean and when inclined we took the short walk down the driveway to an empty beach. This place is the epitome of peace and quiet with all the modern amenities to make it a truly deluxe and comfortable stay. The customer service of the owner and on-site manager were equally as welcoming and accommodating. Thank you for a truly beautiful stay!

They don't build them like this anymore

  • 5 of 5

We stayed downstairs in the Teak Room four years ago, and this month made it back to Kauai in style. We were upstairs this time! This place has an incredible kitchen, with condiments and cooking oil provided. It is a thoughtfully and beautifully decorated space that feels so comfortable and Hawaii-magical. You can see the ocean from the living room and hear it from everywhere. The property is secluded and serene, and is in the middle of a well-maintained tropical garden at the base of a mountain. You can't do much better for location either. Ke'e, Lumehai, Tunnel, Hanalei Bay beaches all very close. The north shore of Kauai is certainly the most beautiful place I've visited, and how nice to experience it without being surrounded by fellow tourists. I can't wait to go back.

Second time around and just as good!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I have rented a home from Beverly and Doug and they did not disappoint us!

Our first rental was their home in Escalante, Utah last year. It was spectacular! So we decided to try out their second home rental in Kauai and found it equally as comfortable, well stocked and perfectly located to enjoy beach trips, snorkeling, and day hikes around the island. We did all of this and ended the week with a helicopter tour with Sunshine Helicopters. It was a fabulous way to end an awesome vacation! House manager, Patricia, is friendly, efficient and on top of her game! Mahalo!

Awesome getaway into the true nature of Kawaii

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved celebrating our 30th anniversary in this beautiful cottage. This was our first visit ever to the Hawaiian islands. The cottage exceeded our expectations. We loved the open feel of the cottage and yet the seclusion of the location off the beaten path. We felt we were able to experience the beautiful Hawaiian natural setting without the crowds. The cottage was very well stocked from the gourmet kitchen to the beach chairs. We loved the lanai! We shared a morning cup of coffee and watched the sun rise and we grilled fresh fish on the grill and ate dinner out there as well. We enjoyed snorkeling at Tunnels Beach, hiking the Hanalei 'Okolehao trail and the Kalalau trail to the Hanakai'ai Falls, a great boat ride to see the Na Pali coast, shave ice in Hanalai, and a day-long excursion down south to the Waimea Canyons with a late afternoon visit to the blow hole and a romantic sunset dinner at the Beach House restaurant. I loved waking up in the morning to roosters, the sounds of the waves, and the gentle showers that gave way to sunshine and rainbows when we were organized to set out on the day's excursion. We are hoping to come back with our children and grandchildren sometime soon. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!
