Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Na Hoku, on the bay, overlooking lawn,sand, & surf

Na Hoku is the Upstairs part of our duplex on the bay. It is named for the stars shining above Hanalei. There is a great view of the bay from the covered lanai, living room and dining area. It has two bedrooms with a king in one room & 2 twins in the other. The bathroom has a tub shower combo. There is a full kitchen for preparing your fresh island favorites. The living room also has a fold out twin which can accomodate another person. (Standard occupancy is 4 guests, but can accommodate up to 5, extra guest fee applies)

Located at the end of Weke Road, the bay front road, and aligning with the middle of the bay, is pretty darn perfect. From the Upstairs living room you are looking straight out North to the center of Hanalei Bay, framed and accented by palms and ironwood trees. From the lanai you have the perfect perch for watching the surf, kite surfers, boats and beauty while having a meal or evening cocktail. The only thing nicer than being on the lanai is perhaps floating in the water & enjoying the beach.

Not all of vacation life is with out some slight toil. If you need to wash clothes, the Upstairs, Downstairs and Old Style share the coin op washer & dryer in a cute little building just steps away. There is also a hot & cold water shower on the side for rinsing off sand & salt after the beach (way more fun than showering inside.

You never know what you will see on the beach. Many people come here to get married, renew vows, celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, even to get baptized! Canoe races, surfers, kite surfers, fishermen, boaters, volleyball players all enjoy the beach and bay. Even with all this activity, most people experience the beach with fewer people on it than they could have dreamed. Whatever is happening in the water, you'll be in the picture when you come to Hanalei. You will enjoy, sun, rain, surf, rainbows, and a great little town set in a fabulously beautiful location.

Amazing experience at Aunt Lydia's!

  • 5 of 5

Aunt Lydia's was amazing to say the least. I travel quite a bit and this was by far the most comforting place I've ever stayed in. The outside showers, 2 minute walk to the beach and provided amenities were perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better time. Will be back.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day stay in this wonderful 2nd floor home. Everything was perfect and it was wonderful to be right on the ocean. Loved the big covered porch and beautiful lawn leading to a perfect beach (never crowded) and ocean ... So relaxing and quiet ... Not too far from town though we drove to save time. Nice to be a little separated from the main action area of the town. The home was rustic / perfect for an island feel and contained everything we needed. The home was very clean and air conditioning was never needed due to the wonderful breezes. Suzanne was available by phone for any questions and tips for enjoying the area. We'll be back to stay at Na Hoku for sure! Just wish our stay was longer or that we could relocate to Hanalei tomorrow!

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We rented the upstairs and downstairs suites for a week for the seven of us. Couldn't have had a better vacation, right on the beach, and just a nice walk into the village - just perfect! Wish we could stay forever.

Our Piece of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Every 5 years, we spend our wedding anniversary at this property. It is beautiful! I can't imagine ever returning to the resorts on Kauai. We have everything we need here, and there's nothing between our lanai and the surf except some grass and sand.

Though we planned to have a few meals out on the town, we also gathered food and supplies on our way from the airport. When we realized we didn't have or ran out of something, we either found it in the nearby grocery store or in the cabinets of the house. Sometimes, we rent a place and the spices and condiments left behind by others are greasy and stale. But here, it was almost as if everything was freshly stocked for us. Little details like a new, in-wrapper sponge for doing dishes remind me that this place is cleaner than my own house! And yet, this place does feel like home. The on-property washer/dryer means that we can wash our clothes halfway through the trip instead of packing more luggage.

I can't decide what was the best party of staying here. Surfing perfect waves just outside our front door? Grilling our own meals, usually a local fish with some fresh vegetables and a $1 pineapple from the town's farmer's market? Relaxing on the lanai while listening to our music on the house's stereo? Being located far enough down the road that we beat the crowds to the Kalalau trailhead and Tunnels Beach? It truly doesn't get any better than this.

From leisurely walks into town to candlelit dinners, this place is near everything yet away from it all. I said it before and I'll say it again: we WILL be back!
