Retired couple from Southern California, full time residents of Kauai for 19 years.
C.B. & Toni purchased this cottage in 1998
Beauty and ambiance of Kauai's unparalleled North Shore.
Privacy, natural beauty, deep country living, and walks on the beach.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tiki Hut. It is set in a gorgeous garden and is nicely decorated in an island theme. Toni and CB have thought of everything to make you welcome and comfortable. It is a few one lane bridges from Hanalei where you can shop, book excursions and go to restaurants. We fixed most of our evening meals at the cottage to avoid having to drive back in the dark. The beaches, which are a short walk down a dirt road, are beautiful with views of Makana (Bali Hai). There was very few people on the beach so you have lots of privacy and quiet time. Thank you Toni and CB for sharing your little slice of paradise.
The location was wonderful. The accommodations were comfortable, the landscape beautiful and the owners attentive to all our needs. The basket of local treats and fruit, the chilled bottle of white wine in the refrigerator, Toni's fresh flower arrangements in every room...we can't say enough. Thank you Toni and CB for making this stay absolutely fabulous.
