Tiki Hut: Set in a beautiful, peaceful dreamscape

  • 5 of 5

Far from the glitz, crowds, traffic and hubbub of Kauai's resort destinations is the sublime retreat of the Tiki Hut, in Haena, at the remote end of Kauai's North Shore. Just 2 miles from where the road ends and the fabled Na Pali Coast begins, Tiki Hut, a well-appointed, cozy cottage for two in a remarkable botanical garden setting, is a dreamscape with a dramatic mountain background and steps from world-renowned Tunnels ("Bali Hai") Beach.

Located on a private lane, Tiki Hut is a four-minute walk to a spectacular shoreline and the little-populated golden sands and snorkel sites around Tunnels Beach. Hosts C.B. and Toni Martin are exceptional owners and caretakers of the property and the finely manicured tropical garden that surrounds their home and the adjacent Tiki Hut cottage. Guests have privacy and autonomy, although C.B. and Toni are available anytime to offer friendly information, advice or assistance. Between their home and Tiki Hut is a separate utility building with laundry facilities, if needed during your stay.

We've stayed here three times (5 weeks total) since "discovering" Tiki Hut in January 2015. Each time seems like coming home. Early on we got the feeling we'd like to have Toni and C.B. (and their lovable golden retriever/lab, Nugget, a canine ambassador of Aloha) to be our next-door neighbors at home. Equally comfortable are the amenities of the Tiki Hut, including two lanais (off the bedroom and the living room), each with a table for enjoying breakfasts, lunches or dinners amid the tropical garden, a new 2-person hot tub, an outdoor shower, a garden hammock near the 6-foot-tall Tiki named "Pau Hana" (after work) and a supply of flippers, masks, snorkels & towels for the beach.

To quote from the notations we left in the Tiki Hut guest book, "Your former guests say this again & again (and we echo it, too): What a superb place to unwind, relax & renew...the Tiki Hut sets a new standard for an unparalleled happiness zone."

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Tiki Hut is truly an home away from home oasis! CB & Toni are the perfect hosts, and provided everything we could have possibly needed. A short walk to a great beach, close to Hanalei for shopping, great meals (try Hanalei Gourmet...we ate there 4 times!), and a convenient grocery store. The location is truly worth the drive. Being this far out was well worth it! We did a drive around the entire island our last day, as our flight wasn't until 8:30 and we were thrilled we stayed at the Tiki Hut. Felt like the middle of the rain forest and the gardens are exquisite! Complete with a bullfrog who liked to sing most nights! :-)

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!
