About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Traveling north past Hanalei, you enter the dense jungle and intense blue waters of Kauai's far north shore. There are no words that can describe nature's beauty in this region. Many beaches, including tunnels and ke'e, are in the area. Trail heads for some of the most memorable hikes on earth are nearby.

The Wainiha beach house brings you old style Hawaii in a jungle setting with a stream flowing in your back yard. Built in 1963 of Polynesian design, the house was the dream of Peggy Slater, known as the Amelia Earhart of sailing. Waterfalls, rainbows, crashing surf, fragrant flowers and exotic colorful birds will surround you. Home has high speed wireless internet, phone, cable tv, and full kitchen.

Bedroom 1 has a King bed. Bedroom 2 has a King bed and Bedroom 3 has a Queen bed. There is A/C in the master bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was beautiful and the scenery around us was amazing! The house is an older home, but has so much character. The three bedrooms are "railroad" style where one is right after another, so you have to go through each room to get to the living area if you are at the very last room. (So keep in mind that there isn't much privacy) But, there are doors for each room that lead to the front lawn, so you can avoid going through each room if you don't mind going outside, then through the front door. Everyone was happy at the house and would go back again when visiting Kauai.



The beach is directly across the street and is a beautiful view to wake up to every morning. The only thing is that it isn't very easy to get to, but there are other beaches less than 5 minutes away that you can drive to.

Reviewer Comments:

Three couples stayed at the Wainiha Beach House over Labor Day Weekend. We found the place to suit our needs perfectly. Keep in mind, this rental will provide you with the authentic north shore experience - meaning you will see birds, bugs and animals of all sort. At no time did we feel we would have rather been at a hotel, and we all believe our experience in Kauai would've been worst had we chosen a hotel over this property. Incredible house and an incredible experience!

Our family and friends adored the beautiful house on Kauai. Its proximity to the best beaches on the island is extraordinary, and there is an ocean view from each room. Thank you!!

The property was pretty much exactly as represented. Very pleasant indeed, though a little noisier than expected. Almost impossible to avoid the vacation of a lifetime in this place. :-)

Reviewer Comments:

we loved this house, it had everything we needed, i loved the huge windows i could open up and leave them open all night to listen to the wonderful sounds of the river and the waves crashing on the shore.they even had alot of beach supplies in the back sheds like boogie boards, snorkle equip. and surfbaords ect which i found out on the last day ( stupid me) after i rented everything they had LOL. i would definitely stay here again for sure, my wife even said she loved it too and that we should make this our GO TO place when we come back and i agree, i stayed at princeville condos in the past and i think this is a way better, i want my own place/house when i go on vacation and not look at a bunch of parking lots and carports and PEOPLE. i played frisbee in the front yard with my 3 year old son and bbq in the back at night time i even layed out some towels on the picnic table in the front yard and looked up at the beautiful abundant stars and watched for shooting stars. Oh and the beds were nice and super cozy too, most places have older or cheap or uncomfortable mattresses but these owners like to have their guests cozy, i can tell ) nice job guys, P.S. future guests, treat this place like it was your own such as use thin toilet paper, dont waste water and electricity and mayebe thoughtful and caring vacation prop. owners like these guys will keep the cost and a really respectable rate like they do now. enjoy your stay.

Reviewer Comments:

You couldn't ask for a more convenient location to explore the North Shore--just ten minutes from the beginning of the NaPali coast, 5 from Tunnels Beach, 1 from Lumahai Beach, 8 from the town of Hanalei. Rustic comfort--'old Hawaii' in a good way--that's how we'd describe this house. If you want glitzy spotless, get a condo in Princeville. If you want to go to sleep with ocean waves and frogs as a soundtrack, this is the place. Some people have complained about the road noise--it is true that the house is adjacent to a one-lane bridge, and the road is the only way around this part of the island, but at night the traffic drops to nothing, so it's quiet enough. The floor plan of the house is a bit weird--it's a 'shotgun' plan, meaning that you walk through one bedroom to get to the other...but it's not a dealbreaker, just takes getting used to. Only the master bedroom has a/c, but you won't even need it, since all the windows open and the breezes are abundant. However, the ceiling fan and the tv in the master bedroom never did work. I checked the batteries, etc., nothing worked. Fortunately, we weren't there to watch TV, but with the price you're paying for the house, everything needs to be in working order. (Also, although the house was clean enough, it was not 'spotless' on arrival.)
