Anini Kama’aina Hale is a simple and charming vintage Hawaiian home, located on 1.75 acres of oceanfront property near the end of Anini Road. There's not another property like it!
A beautiful sandy beach protected by Hawaii's longest reef is right in front of your door steps and one of the safest along the North Shore of the island. This stretch of beach is ideal for children, wading and snorkeling among sea turtles. Sailing, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and seasonal whale watching are all close by.
Na ‘Aina Kai Botanical Gardens, Kilauea Lighthouse, Hiking Trails and Miniature Golf are less than 7 miles away.
Anini Kama’aina Hale invites you to relax after a day at the beach, hiking or just taking a reading break.
The quaint surf town of Hanalei has a farmers market on Saturday, dozens of dining choices, shopping and watersports equipment rentals.
If simplicity and serenity are your goal, you've found the ideal spot. Many vacationers return year after year to enjoy this oft revisited vacation rental.

This home has been in the same kama'aina family since it was built. It is a traditional Hawaiian 'summer' home designed for extended family stays at the beach when the family lives elsewhere on the island. The owner's father and grandfather were both doctors and lived in Lihue near the hospital. They looked forward to their summer 'vacations' at the beach and their stays at this home is one of the owner's fondest memories.
Christine Spath purchased this house in 1949
This is one of Kauai's loveliest and best protected beaches with white sand, wonderful swimming, snorkeling, fishing, and any other water or beach activities. The home is nearly at the end of the road and near a river mouth, which adds to the ambience.
A simple life style in a very special location. Relax and play in beautiful surroundings.
The furnishings are old.
The home is at a remote location on a worn, pot-holed road which makes getting in and out tedious. Despite its remoteness, the road & area remained fairly busy during our stay.
The beach in front of the house is not desirable.
While the outside of the house had tons of mosquitos, the inside was infested with gnats.
We stayed here for a week after staying at Hanalei Bay Resort in Princeville for a week. This was our third trip together to Kauai (my fifth trip). Both previous trips, we stayed at Hanalei Bay Resort. This time, to celebrate my better half's retirement, we decided to try a change of scene for our second week and are glad we did!
The place is clean and charming and reminded me of my own childhood stays at a cabin on the beach. Just as described: "Everything you need and nothing you don't." We found supplies and things more than adequate including sunscreen and other things left behind by previous guests. If, however, you want fine china and matching stemware like Darci, stick with St Regis or other high dollar resorts.
I was initially concerned that there was no A/C, but due to its location, A/C would be a complete waste. The ocean breezes kept us more than adequately cool and the fresh ocean air was much healthier than the typical recycled conditioned air. The best part was being able to hear the ocean outside throughout the night - made for peaceful sleeping (tuning out the roosters, of course - but that is everywhere on the island).
We did discover that there was more than a little car traffic coming down the road, past the house, then turning around (despite the sign indicating it is a private road "local traffic only") - mostly people trying to find a spot to park to enjoy the beach. There were a couple of overnight campers, but they were mostly quiet and kept to themselves. So, what can you say: it's paradise and everyone wants to enjoy it. (And, like ljcrny said, it is preferable to overpacked hotel resorts.) In Hawaii, there is no such thing as a private beach - they rightly belong to everyone. So, we went with the flow and reminded ourselves that at least we didn't have to drive around trying to find a place to park, but instead could walk across the street to the beach and snorkeling - and, for that matter, we got to enjoy the view of the ocean from the house. Some days were perfectly peaceful and quiet with no one venturing down the street. And those days were special.
Sandy and her staff were more than responsive when we contacted them with questions and concerns and were very accommodating!
For the money, you won't find another place on Anini beach like it.
Overall, this was a terrific place and we will almost certainly return. We are refreshed and ready to face the world again! Thanks to Sandy, Christine, and the rest of your staff!
We always seek out places away from the chaos of other tourists and commercial areas and we were VERY pleased by the location of this house. Quiet and private, directly across from the beach. Yes, locals park here and some camp, but to us that is far preferable to a jam-packed hotel or tourist trap.
The house was very well equipped with small appliances, including a juicer and rice cooker. It was as clean as can be expected from an older house right on the beach. Plenty of dishes and silverware and a big shower...If you want egyptian cotton sheets and matching plates, stay at the St. Regis.
If you like being off the beaten path but still close enough to explore town and other beaches, this is a great spot.
My family and I stayed here for a week this summer. We love Anini Beach, but do not recommend staying in this house for several reasons. First, in terms of location, it's probably the least desirable. Because the house is located at the end of the road, it tends to get a lot of cars, tourists and locals. In fact, locals can camp on this beach which they did and completely blocked our view of the ocean. There are also a lot of people living just across the water, camping under the trees. The house had the bare minimum in supplies. I've rented NUMEROUS houses and I have NEVER rented a house that wasn't supplied with at least an entire place setting of dishes. This place had 3 coffee cups, 1 wine glass, few pans and very few cooking gadgets. The only positive thing I can say about this house is it was clean and quaint. We found the customer service to be very poor.
