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.

We loved Auntie Lydia's. My family stayed for a week in June. 3 adults/2 kids. It was stocked with everything we needed. Clean and "old school Hawaiian" charm. Very close to town and Pine Trees beach. You are right off the main highway and in the day the traffic can be noisy, but there are hedges to keep you feeling private. Front room looks out toward the mountain and all of the water falls. The most amazing part of the house is the outside shower. It was magical standing under the warm water, in the rain, and seeing the beautiful mountain and waterfalls. The carport was great for barbecuing and visiting. It was raining quite a bit while we were there and we had friends over and ate all our dinners out there. They had a cooler, a couple of boogie boards, and beach chairs to use. Each room has fans and we were very comfortable. One of the rooms has air conditioning if you need that. Washer and dryer on site. And even though it says one bathroom, they have a little room with a toilet outside, which is convenient when traveling with kids and grandma!! We loved seeing the pics that are around the home of Auntie Lydia and her family. Hanalei is such a sweet little town and being able to stay in a home, and not a condo, was such a wonderful way to visit. Thank you for sharing your sweet Hanalei Ohana. We will defiantly be staying with you again. Aloha
Very clean spacious home. Extremely well stocked kitchen, along with bath and beach towels which were plentiful. Beach chairs, toys, cooler. Fans in every room plus air conditioning in one room. Pretty much all you need for a good visit. Beach is about a five minute walk. I don`t really have any complaints at all. It is on the highway but the highway also ends not long after so the traffic dies after supper. This did not seem to b an issue. A short walk to town, about 10 minutes. My kids and I walked to supper most nights. Excellent grocery store about a five minute drive down the road. Overall wonderful experience.
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.
This is our second stay at Aunt Lydia's. We are on a budget when traveling and Aunt Lydia's fits the bill. Possibly the least expensive rental for it's size and even for two bedroom units. It is on the highway but traffic is minimal and you are still two blocks from the beach. Nice yard for the kids to run around and plenty of room to have friends over for dinner, etc. Great views up at the mountains. We are out and about when in Hanalei so we don't put a huge premium on our rental being luxurious. That said, Lydia's has everything we need.
We stayed at this home for 6 nights in November. We loved the Hanalei area and the home was very close to the beach, which was so convenient. The home could use some upgrading though, and for that reason we would not stay here in the future. Some things that could use an update are the coffee maker (need larger size), the kitchen really needs a dishwasher (with new people staying each week, it would be nice to properly sanitize the dishes), and an A/C (we were sweating all day and night, and we visited during a cooler season, I couldn't imagine if we would have gone during summer!). I know everyone says Hawaii has such perfect weather that no one in their right mind needs A/C, we that simply isn't true. It would not cost much for the owner to put in an A/C system for the comfort of the guests. Good things though were location on the island, close to the beach, outdoor shower was a nice feature.
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.
