All Cedar Home - Breathtaking Hanalei Bay and Mountain Views

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Waterfall laced mountains and Hanalei Bay views through a tropical prism. These will be your first impressions and lasting memories of this welcoming home. The Hanalei Vista House is an all cedar home built 15 feet off the ground to enhance the spectacular views of Hanalei Bay and the adjacent mountains. A wrap around lanai is positioned to especially enhance opportunities to savor a Napali sunset while enjoying a baroque or glass of wine.

A corian countertop is the only thing separating the designated chef from enjoying the same views as other guests thru the sliding glass doors. The kitchen is modern and user friendly. The master bedroom has a tiled full bath. The second tiled bath is convenient to the other bedrooms. There are vaulted ceilings throughout and the loft provides extra space for last minute guests or the kids. A 3 to 10 minute drive brings you to golf in Princeville or one of the countless northshore beaches adjacent to Hanalei

This vacation rental is completely owner operated and has a Kaua'i County vacation rental certificate : TVNC # 1161

We stayed in Hanalei Vista House in October. What a treat it was. We were there for 10 days of relaxation. And we got that. The house was beautiful and clean. It was just the two of us, but we will be back back again. The wrap around porch was great and we spent many hours out there just relaxing and enjoying the tropical view. It's close to Hanalei and Princeville and the Farmers market. We had fresh limes for your Margaritas and the bananas were almost ripe when we left. I wanted to stay longer. It was nice being so close to Princeville and Hanalei. The really neat thing was the entertainment the Gegkos provided each night when we turned the lights on. They were outside but we managed to get a picture that looked like they were kissing! A wonderful place to stay. We have stayed many time in this area and this is a great place for the price.

Perfect location, close to everything on North Shore

  • 5 of 5

The Hanalei Vista house is a perfect location for staying on the North Shore. It is located between Hanalei and Princeville, close to beaches, botanical gardens, farmers markets and the golf course, if you like to golf. The house is open and has lots of room for a family or two couples. It even has a loft! One of the best features we enjoyed was the huge wrap-around deck with a beautiful view of tropical vegetation, the mountains and Hanalei Bay. Sunsets were gorgeous! We enjoyed cooking fresh Ahi on the grill bought nearby at the Dolphin Fish Market and fruit smoothies for breakfast with fresh fruits from the nearby farmers market. It was like staying in paradise. Our family will stay here again.

stayed one week 3/16/16 to 3/23/16

The house was ok and the location is close to hanalei with plenty of space for the 3 of us. I came with my best friend and 5 year old son who started his life in hanalei. We came to scatter the ashes of his mother who has recently passed and to take some photos as a travel photographer. I have stayed in hundreds of homes all over the world as a travel photographer and since i live in hawaii.. .hundreds more in hawaii all over. I love the area and although we were not at the house much it had everything we needed. We washed our dished and left our trash out by the curb double bagged and even vacuumed the carpets before leaving. Imagine my surprise when i get home to receive this message from the owner " There were maggots , which I hope I

got all of, found them in the kitchen by trash can and on the carpet and

rug by the slider door".

This was totally unacceptable and demonstrates a lack of respect for the

house and for my cleaner. I charged you for cleaning which is the

normal charge by my cleaner for respectful, fairly diligent departing

guests. Jane"

I don't even know where to begin - there were no maggots when we left but could a fly have gotten in a house in the middle of a rainy jungle? with eggs hatching after we left? sure.

They weren't there when we left - and again we washed all the dishes and took the trash to the curb when we left. It is possible a fly got in and the eggs hatched after we left - I don't feel that is a good enough reason to be so rude. I live here - i know there are ants and bugs, gecko's, mosquitoes, and after a rain they can sometimes be a pain. I bleach my trash cans at home and keep them under the kitchen sink. ...I should have known when Jane emailed 4 times about the check coming in the mall on time even though it was mailed the fasted possible way at the post office with tracking, that she might be just in it for money with no aloha.. I run a customer service business as a nature photographer and I cant remember ever calling a customer disrespectful. ...and Jane you are all the way on the mainland so you really have less of an awareness what happened than anyone.. ...just assume the worst seems to be the case with you?


If it was my business - i would have just paid the extra small fee and cleaned the bugs.. ..maybe moved the trash in the kitchen to under the sink behind a cabinet.. done!

that was my third and last time in one of your houses.

Owner's Response: I have a 15 year vacation rental history with this house. The vast majority of my guests are wonderful, caring, respectful people. So this was an extremely rare situation for me to encounter. My cleaner of 10 years included comments to me via e mail on the presence of maggots at the rental upon her arrival to clean the house. Check out is at 10 am and she arrived shortly thereafter. Maggots did not magically appear in the short interim. I believed the recently departing guests needed to be made aware of the situation so I forwarded her exact comments to them. Obviously, they disagreed and believed I should have just glossed it over and ignored the situation and I certainly should not have been so rude as to bring it to their attention. Let us be honest: maggots are the result of people leaving organic matter ( ie trash) unaddressed for too long. PERIOD It is very sad that this guest is in complete denial and cannot accept any responsibility for the behavior that caused the situation. This is not a money issue. It is not possible to put a dollar value on carelessness which crosses the line into disrespect. Jane Helmich, owner

Perfect ! Perfect! Perfect!

Three of us, all adults, rented this beautiful cedar home with an amazing view of Hanalei and the bay. The home was just as advertised by the owner, who could not have been more helpful. No detail was overlooked. Everything was as good or better than we expected. The home was extremely clean, well maintained and stocked with plenty of necessities. The home is extremely convenient to a full service Foodland!.

We enjoy hiking, so the trek from Ke'e Beach to Hanakapia'ai Falls was a given. Little did we know, we could carve out daily short hikes from the Hanalei Vista House to the bay!

We will return and if you are thinking about this home, stop thinking and make your reservation

Home with nice "feel" and great views in excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at the Hanalei Vista. We could not have chosen a better home to rent. The location was very close to the beaches we wanted to visit and a supermarket was within half a mile. Good view of mountains and Hanalei Bay. Nice porch and garden to sit in. Home was clean, nicely furnished, and well stocked with amenities. We plan to definitely stay here again either as a couple or along with our family next year.

A beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My adult family and I recently vacationed on Kauai and spent our two weeks at the Hanalei Vista house – OUTSTANDING! What a wonderful place all around – the home, the gardens and the views. Oh, those views! On mornings following overnight rains, waterfalls would sprout up on the mountainside. Occasionally, I'd catch a rainbow…or two. On sunny days, Hanalei Bay was visible in the distance, colored an almost "electric" blue. While pictures may be worth a thousand words, the pictures of the views just don't do this place justice; it was so beautiful, peaceful and restful. I'm an early riser and each morning I would sit on the covered lanai, rain or shine, and read…or count waterfalls…or watch birds…or watch the geckos (too darn cute!). The lanai – which is accessible via two separate sliding doors – wraps around both sides and entire front of the house was heavily used during our stay, especially for dining. The lawns surrounding the house are diverse and as well maintained as the house itself. (On a side note: There are lemon and lime trees on the north (?) side of the house and we took full advantage of these for our cooking!) The house's stained wooden architecture blends well with its environment, and the main area of the house (living/dining/kitchen) is designed to provide for nonstop views from within. The first impression upon entering is how open the space is; large windows, high ceilings with exposed beams and a hardwood floor create a very "clean and crisp" environment. The décor is a tasteful mix of "old meets new", with some great antique oak pieces contrast against uncluttered walls and modern amenities. The bedrooms – in the "rear" of the house – are quiet, private and comfortable; each of us commented on how comfortable our mattresses were. I also didn't have to worry about waking others in the house, since the master bedroom and bath were on the opposite side from the other bedrooms/bath. Hanalei Vista was one of our greatest vacation finds (and bargains!) to-date. It was our "home away from home" and was a place we looked forward to returning to every night – and are definitely hoping to return to on our next visit to Kauai. Many thanks to Jane (the owner) for the opportunity to enjoy this home!!
