About the property

Great home, location, & price. Don't think it can be beat for the combination.

This upscale beach home is part of a duplex. Featuring granite counters, travertine floors, Hawaiian style furnishings, top line appliances, stainless steel BBQ & outdoor shower in your private back yard await you. Cool and relaxing, convenient to all the North Shore beaches. A two minute stroll will bring you to Waioli Beach Park in the center of Hanalei Bay. A few blocks away lies the Hanalei town center with eclectic shops, beach toy rentals (masks, boards, kayaks and bicycles), market, fish store and excellent restaurants.Its all in the neighborhood, and Hanalei is a great neighborhood with a fabulous bay, beautiful mountains, waterfalls and rainbows. These are the best rates in Hanalei for this quality and proximity to the bay. There are two bedrooms, 1 king bed, 2 twins, and a loft with full size bed; two full baths.

This house is literally a block and a half from Waioili Beach Park in Hanalei Bay. We chose this house because we wanted to stay put for most of our stay in Kauai and drive as little as possible. It was the perfect fit for our family of five. The first night we walked to Big Save market, but decided with three little kids, driving 2 minutes was a lot easier, and our food stayed cold. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we could have needed. The back yard and out door shower were a wonderful bonus for our 3 and 5 year old. Even though there are other houses on 3 sides of the house, the landscaping made the yard extremely private, and the neighbors were very quiet. . The washer and dryer worked great! There was a nice big fan in every room. The furniture was comfortable. The owner and housekeeper were very helpful! The housekeeper spoiled us with fresh fruit several times during our stay. The owner was at the house within what seemed like minutes to answer a couple questions we had. Our trip was 15 days, and we drove to another beach twice. All that to say, we love Hanalei and this house made it even better. We would definitely stay at this house again! Thanks for making us so comfortable!

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

Was so great that we could just walk around the corner to the fabulous Hanalei beach - felt like I was home. Members of the community embraced us all as though this was our home - fabulous. So much more enjoyable than being in a hotel.

Great place for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this property and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is well equipped and comfortable. It is an easy 3 blocks walk from the beach and a short drive from groceries and restaurants. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay there. Great place for anyone who wants to get away from some of the Hawaii tourist hype and have a more authentic experience.

Hanalei is the best

  • 4 of 5

Wow did we enjoy our stay in Hanalei and the island of Kauai. Our accommodation were wonderful, large and spacious for two couples. The patio was a great place to hang when it rained. It does rain in Hanalei. I guess you should expect that since it is so close to the rainiest spot on earth. Don't worry travel a couple miles and the weather is sunny. The sun can be as close as the beach which is just a short walk away.....really! That was nice. Wai'Oli' is a duplex not a big problem but if you rent the unit on the right your bedroom window is just a few feet from the neighbor's patio. They use their patio nightly and even normal conversation sounds very loud. Be advised they are talking with friends late into the night and that is most nights. I think they are the most popular people in Hanalei. My advice ask for the left unit or make friends with the neighbors as soon as you arrive. That way you can spend your evenings at their house drinking and enjoying the conversation.

Owner's Response: We have never had a comment about conversational noise from the neighboring house before. We were able to track down who your neighbors were at Aunty Lydia's Ohana next door. A sister of the North Shore Iron's family (of great world renowned surfing fame) was visiting and she had a lot of family to catch up with. Must have sounded like conversations you wanted to be part of, the surf lore of the North Shore?

Great 2 weeks at the Wai'oli House...March 24-April 7 2013.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed 14 days at the Wai'oli House. The ease of use and proximity to both town and beach was wonderful. The amenities were perfect and the house was very clean and more than adequately supplied for cooking and entertaining. We highly recommend you stay at Wai'oli House when you visit Hanalei Bay area.

Lovely stay in Hanalei

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing this lovely home. All was great. Note, this property is on Kuhio Hwy, but despite this, was quiet, and never felt overly trafficked. But I live on a busline in a larger metropolitan area, so my perception is perhaps skewed.

We love Hanalei and its laidback style. I'm not much for resorts, so this place is perfect. The section of beach closest to the house (short walking distance) has a big slope/undertow so is not recommended for swimming. This may change as the winter weather shifts the beach around, but we found it better to drive the very short distance (since we have a 3yo) to a different section of Hanalei Bay for beach access, which worked out just fine.

This really is a lovely home!
