Hanalei House Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront Cottage on Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii


Hanalei Moon Beach Cottage here in the middle of Hanalei Bay can be yours! The Cottage is named after the famous Hawaiian song 'Hanalei Moon,' which extols the extreme beauty and romance of the Hanalei Valley under the tropical night sky.

The cottage is located on the quiet end of town on Weke Road, only grass between you and the sand, on 1/3 acre within walking distance of all the restaurants, shops and galleries. Waterfalls are the backdrop for our little beach house.

There is a complete cozy kitchen where you can whip up fabulous food from the Hanalei Fish Market, the Farmer's Market, or just make snacks to go and eat out every night in one of the great local restaurants.

A Chinese lemon tree is just outside your bedroom window for drinks or pies. The bedroom has a king size bed and lights for reading at night & a flat screen TV. It has a separate bathroom entrance.

We have a little library for your use and quite a few great books on Kauai and Hawaii in general. A twin size pune'e in the central room can accomadate another guest and there is a folding futon for the way youger set.

We have a little telescope in the living room so that you can better see boats, whales, and dolphins ply the Bay by day and enjoy the moon and stars at night. In the summer you will see boats, stand up paddlers kite surfers, and all manner of ocean craft right from your living room and the adjoining covered lanai. In the winter you will see surfers.

If you're lucky, you may see a moon bow, something I have only seen in Hanalei. It will happen on a night when there are stars, moon and clouds together. If the clouds are sailing by on the gentle trade winds and shedding some tears, the rain will be illuminated by the moon shining from the cloudless part of the sky. Talk about breathtaking! Depending on the brightness of the moon, you may discern the colors of the rainbow.

Snorkeling, swimming, diving, paddling, hiking, golfing and a health club are all as close as your front yard, to as far as a 10 minute drive away. Walk across your front yard and look to the left; you're likely to see no one for a mile. Look to the right and you'll probably see surfers, volley ball players and beach-goers, with the Hanalei Pier at the far end of the Bay in the background.

There is a neat outside hot & cold shower for after the beach or under the stars and a washer & dryer on the side of the house.

Hanalei Rest & Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful home for two weeks. It was spacious and very close to the beach and town- easy access to everything. It was wonderful to have an outdoor shower to wash off after the beach and to have a large kitchen to cook in. We enjoyed the living room with the views of the mountains in the distance and the tropical front yard. Old hawaiian decor and a bit mid century in the living room, Also, the house is set back enough from the highway, you don't really hear too much and it is very clean.The management was very helpful when needed. The only reason I am giving this place four stars is because it was dark inside and hot- very hot & hard to cool down inside the house. I may be more partial to lighter spaces, so if you are okay with dark, then it would probably be great for you. Also, I'm not sure if we were having a bit of a heat wave, it was in the 90's, but the house held the heat. Overall, we had a nice stay.

Fabulous Hanalei

  • 5 of 5

What a great little getaway cottage on Hanalei Bay. It is so well equipped with everything you might need. The location is perfect to either walk into town or drive west to Ke'e or Tunnels beach or the amazing Limahuli Garden. Just a short walk over the "lawn" to the ocean. Loved Hanalei & loved the Moon Beach Cottage.

All ya need, plus sand and sea! (and chickens)

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place, more than adequate. On the sea shore in the sun, or shade as you wish and only a two minute walk. (maybe 100 yds?). We enjoyed it so very much. All essentials are there for use, and we were quite comfortable. I sure do hope we can make it happen to visit again. Also - enjoyed the squadron of chickens who came to visit. Melodic (sort of) and vibrantly colorful. The birds seemed to like us too.

Lovely return visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying in Moon Beach Cottage (and last year we stayed at another one their properties) and it really is a little slice of heaven. The cottage is situated right on Hanalei Bay, with ocean views right outside your living room window. We took walks on the beach every morning and BBQ'd on the last at night several times. Just the most relaxing vacation!

spring break haven

  • 5 of 5

This is the second April week we spent at this spot. Different weather, different sights - equally wonderful. We wanted quiet and privacy and views and that is exactly what we got. We love this cottage as a base for exploring the island. Everything you need is there. We highly recommend the property.

Laid-back Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our stay here was quite happy despite mostly rainy weather. The proximity to the beach is sensational. There are three other cottages on the property but it still felt very private. We enjoyed the outdoor shower and beach equipment. Overall the cottage was clean, comfortable and well supplied. Two improvements we would have appreciated would have been a better coffee maker (more than two cups) and a propane barbecue. But overall this is a very special location which we feel fortunate to have enjoyed.
