THIS IS IT, STOP YOUR SEARCHING.

  • 5 of 5

On all our vacation rentals we always end up saying " This was great but we wish that this detail was different". When you vacation at the Tiki Hut

you will not regret one item. The photos are great but you have to be standing in the yard with the soft breeze blowing off the Pacific to really comprehend it. The Martins love their property and will do their absolute best to make sure you enjoy it the same way. Check out the availability calendar, see how solidy booked it is. I read the guest book one guest has revisited 12 times. Kauai is one sweet, gentle and gorgeous island. You will also meet Nugget, pet him for 25 seconds and you will feel him nuzzle right into you. So stop searching for a rental on Kauai and grab the Tiki Hut.

P.S. C.B. When you chatted about Nugget, I completely understood you.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

CB and Toni have created a tropical oasis and are nice enough to share it with us! The house and yard (it's more like a botanical garden) are impeccable. The house itself is comfortable, spotless and has everything you could want including two beautiful lanais for meals, reading and dreaming. It's so cute, and full of attention to detail from the decorating to the sweet basket of goodies waiting for you when you arrive. If this isn't enough, it's a five minute walk to a beautiful beach, and a few minutes walk more and you are at Tunnels (again, CB and Toni have thought of it all, everything you need for the beach is provided for your use). You're just a hop to Hanalei, but you will feel like you are in your own secluded paradise when you are at the Tiki Hut. It's the perfect place to stargaze, enjoy island showers passing through, and do absolutely nothing at all. You will forget the world while you are at Tiki Hut!

Six stars! Best spot! Super close to Tunnels beach!

  • 5 of 5

This place is phenomenal. We were impressed with the photos, but we were blown away by how incredible the garden is, how adorable the cottage is, and how charming the hosts are. The 3 minute walk to the beach was secluded and fairy-tale-esque, opening to a magical view 2 minutes east of Tunnels beach. The hot tub was especially nice, private, and perfect for unwinding at the end of the day. We have found our new home away from home, and we intend to come back every year, to this wonderful spot.

Congratulations. You've found paradise on earth.

Perfect! Couldn't have dreamt of a more beautiful place to honeymoon! Can't wait for anniversary.

  • 5 of 5

The garden is gorgeous. The whole landscape is like a dream. The location is unbeatable, with Hanalei 2 miles one way, Na'pali Coast 2 miles the other way, and Tunnels Beach basically in the backyard. We had lots of privacy, with the tiki hut being set apart fromToni and CB's house. The amenities, such as the gas bbq, the 2 person hot tub, the boogie boards and snorkel equiptment, hammock, washer and dryer, work table for sorting sea shells, cooler, etc, were all very appreciated! Heaven on Earth.

A+++++

  • 5 of 5

We have rented the Tiki Hut many times and it continues to be our favorite place in the world. For anyone who wants a relaxing vacation this is it, look no further. Toni and C.B. are respectful of your privacy and at the same time available if there is an issue, which is unlikely.

Tunnels Beach which is a short walk is breathtaking and quiet. There are some nice restaurants in Hanalei, 15 minutes down the road. The local farmers markets are also fun.

In case you do stay at the Tiki Hut you might hear an unfamiliar sound, not to worry just a bullfrog outside trying to attract a lady friend!

We didn't want to leave and we are looking forward to our next visit.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

Although a bit off the beaten track, this wonderful place is pure paradise - perfect location - walking distance down a flowererd path to the most stunning beaches, although the waves made it too rough to play in, watching the layers of waves, turtles and spectacular scenery on a non-busy beach was so amazing. Every time we went out, the soundtrack to Rodgers & Hammerstein's "South Pacific" kept playing in my mind.

As for the Tiki hut - it was perfect, cozy, nicely and thoughtfully decorated and given all the essentials and amenities needed. Not one, but two lanais, hot tub, fresh flowers and all. I can't imagine any place will live up to the Tiki Hut, surrounded by beautiful plants in the garden/yard. Owners (and Nugget) were friendly but they gave us privacy. Outdoor shower was great. We are now on Maui staying at more of a condo style place which has similar amenities, but so much less character, warmth and personal touch. If you like really getting away and being in true paradise, this is it! Can't think of a thing we would change. The last few miles getting there are a bit tricky at night since the roads wind and there are 1 lane bridges. If you want a resort or being around a variety of restaurants or busy beaches, this may not be for you. But if you love relaxing in nature, in a simple but charming home away from home, this is it! We loved it! Everything was as described and even better than expected. Clean and well maintained. We hope to come back! Thank you for a truly memorable get-away!

As for nearby food, we enjoyed Sushi girl, Dolphin for fresh fish, and the farmers market and Big Save for our groceries. We enjoyed cooking at home, using grill. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment. The book on Kauai was a gem. The beach chairs and towels were great. This place is near the end of the road. Waimea canyon would have been a long trek so we did a great helicopter tour out of Lihue.
