About the property

1 bedroom 1 bath, walk across grass to the beach

The Old Style is a stand alone beach house just steps from the sand as seen above. The picture below is taken from the living room window. It is called the Old Style since it was once the old vicarage house of the Wai'oli Mission. There is lots of light, great views & a very restful feeling. Single wall redwood was the preferred building style back in the day. It is beautifully painted to accentuate the style of the time. The floor plan is open to enjoy the living dining & kitchen areas while taking in the views. There is a full kitchen for cooking up island fish & fare and other tropical treats. The bedroom is cool and comfortable. The lanai is a fabulous place to relax at the end of a hard day lounging around on the beach or discovering more of Kauai. Standing on the sand in the shade of the trees with your back to the bay looking at the Old Style with the Hanalei Mountains as a back drop. You can be here.

We loved our stay at the beach house. It was very clean and so close to all of our favorite spots on the north shore . We highly recommended this house and have already scheduled our net visit .

The Old Style is a cute little cottage in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage on beautiful Hanalei Bay was the perfect place for celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. The house was clean, the views spectacular, and we will always remember the beautiful sunsets and quiet strolls along the beach. Anyone would love this cute bungalow, except possibly those who enjoy only resort style vacations.

As to not repeat previous reviewers' positive comments, please read them below. We selected the Old Style based on these and other great reviews on the internet. So glad we did. Mahalo Terri & Suzanne!

Old style beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

this place is amazing! location perfect for us we loved walking to town, sitting on the beach. Photos do not do this justice even better in person. One little thing I liked was the cottage had a few extras, small things like salt, pepper BBQ. Best vacation ever WE will be back for more than just 6 nights.

Old Style Beach house

We stayed in The old Style Beach house. It was as special as always. I am a returning customer. It definitely is a magical place. It gets ahold of you and you don't want to leave. So close to the beautiful Hannalei Bay.

Magical cottage on the bay

  • 5 of 5

I will be dreaming about this place for sure. What a sweet, earthy and accommodating place to stay and take in all the beauty surrounding. Everything was how we imagined it but better. I love the old, island-style decor and construction. You can hear the rain at night falling onto the lush, tropical greenery on the grounds as you could also hear the waves lulling you to sleep.The air smelled so good. Walk a few yards and you're sitting on one of the most gorgeous bays in the world. Rainbows galore. A truly relaxing getaway on the north shore of Kauai, super location, just about 10 minute walk to town to get a shave ice or to Tahiti Nui to do some people watching, have a mai-tai and listen to some ukelele and island music. I've stayed at many places all over the island and this place is tops!

Can't wait to get back!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed on this property, the first being in the upstairs beach house. The old style is perfect for a couple with kids or without. Although there are 4 bldgs on the property, you always feel secluded and private. Literally steps from beach, which never seems too busy, and a short walk to the lifeguard station, the Old Style Beach house is a pleasure to stay in. Everything is clean and ready to go, there are usually some basic items in the pantry and fridge. While not new, the kitchen is functional and as I mentioned, clean! If you are arriving late and it's your first time i suggest getting some supplies in Kapa'a on the way to Hanalei.

Caveat about the surf in front of the house: there can be a strong current during the winter months - just keep an eye out for signs and walk down the beach 5 mins towards the lifeguard station / public beach access. You can get into trouble if you are not a strong swimmer! If you are looking to surf, world class breaks are nearby, and if you are looking to learn, a 20 mins or so walk to the pier and you will find lessons.

There have been gentle upgrades on the property since we where last there which is really nice. The communal washer/dryer is awesome to have. It is run by people who care about what they do and their guests. We will return!
