This spacious modern 3bedroom/3bath home will sleep 6 guests comfortably and is fully equipped for your special vacation! The gas range/oven and full kitchen will provide you and your family everything you need to prepare a great meal. The covered lanai looks out to the bay and is perfect for lounging. Each of the large bedrooms have a toilet and sink and there's a large two person jacuzzi bathtub located between the larger bedrooms to soak all your troubles away!
Located across a country road from Kalihiwai Bay - a favorite beach for north shore residents. This beach offers some of the best surfing, swimming and boogie boarding on the Island of Kauai. Not as famous as Hanalei Bay (which is a 12 minute drive away) or Anini Beach (a two minute drive away) but it's certain to become your favorite beach with less crowds, nice sand and both fresh water (Kalihiwai River) and ocean water to play in. The river is a great launching place for stand up paddling or kayaking. So just order your SUP rentals to be delivered to the house and have a great time stand up paddle boarding on either the river or the bay. Your family and friends can watch you from the house as you paddle out! Great for just relaxing/lying around and sunning too!
The spacious lanai has a table with comfortable cushions and a bbq. A great place to watch the ocean and relax at the end of another magical day on Kauai.
Close to shopping, restaurants and other fun activities including world class golf courses, zip lines, horseback riding, kayaking and hiking trails in the north shore area.
My passion is Kauai. I love this special island and sharing my home and this island brings me great joy.

Kalihiwai Beach is so special. Here the Kalihiwai River comes into the ocean and dolphins play in the bay in the mornings. It's truly magical!
Gentle fresh water river flowing into this beautiful bay makes for a once in life time vacation experience! Close to shopping, restaurants and other fun activities but nested in a quiet neighborhood away from the traffic and noise.
Overall, I would rate our stay as a 4 star. The house was clean and tidy, spacious, and completely furnished with everything needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable for the 7 nights we booked. We loved being so close to the beach - literally across the street. The boogie boards provided and beach towels came in handy. The best part of the trip was traveling up the Kalihiwai river on SUP-stand up paddle boards we rented. The area is safe and very quiet, just what we needed for a restful stay. We hope to book this amazing house again in the near future!
Perfectly comfortable home in a great location. Close enough to resorts to feel like a vacation, yet settled in a quiet neighborhood to feel safe & cozy when away from home. The home has easy access to the river and ocean, making it an easy walk with your paddle board.
The home is meticulously maintained with a great layout. Every person related to this rental was a delight to work with.
The Good: The house was very clean and well equipped. For large groups or families with kids I would recommend it. The leasing agent was extremely nice and helpful, however, the information she gave was not 100% accurate.
The Bad: The photos do not properly show the houses location to the water. We were very disappointed in that. We were expecting water front and this is not. Unless you want to swim across the river there is no ocean access. The view out the front of the house is a muddy road and more houses. There is also truly only one full bathroom. The other bedrooms must share a shower that is inside of a large Jacuzzi tub. We made it work but it wasn't what we were expecting. Lastly, being on the North side of the island, it rained absolutely every day. Many of the North beaches were closed due to the weather. I heard this is typical of winter months and nothing to do with the house really. However, if you visit in winter prepare to drive South an hour to Poipu to find sun everyday.
We spent 6 nights at the beach house and wished it could have been many more. We loved how easy it was to feel at home in the house but the location was so perfect for visiting the north shore beaches and other sites. The nearby beach is one if the best beaches we went to. Big waves which were fun and nice sand and a great mix of locals and mellow tourists. We likes wading thru and swimming in the river. I would highly recommend staying here and hope to visit again soon!
Beautifully maintained home on the north shore of Kauai. Very large great room that offered plenty of space for 6 adults to spend our days/nights in. Great sliding glass doors and windows that allowed us to let the smells and sounds of the ocean into the house. We were there during the winter and a winter storm hit the island, so the ocean on the north shore in front of the house was a bit too wild to swim in, but was gorgeous to look at and listen to. Very quiet neighborhood. House was exactly as described. We really appreciated all the beach gear (towels, chairs, snorkel set, boogie boards, etc). We would recommend this property to all and hope to return someday!
We are a group that travels together several times a year and we usually rent a home. This home was spacious and homey, and yet provided enough space for all of us to easily get ready for the day. The amenities are very nice. As others have said you are in a local neighborhood, but the plus side of that is that you can escape the hustle and bustle. This area provides you a calm escape from everyday life. The neighbors are friendly and a pleasure to be around. One even provided paddle board lessons at a very reasonable rate. A caution for those less than athletic, it is a little tricky to get up and down the levels of terrain getting to the river and at this time the year the current can be a little strong in the river. The water is also quite cold when you fall off the paddle board the first time. We just enjoy our time together laughing and catching up, even if we get a little loud. Thank you for adding this home to have in our memories together!!
We are family of five (three children ages 7, 9 and 11) and recently stayed 8 nights in this house. The set-up of the house was ideal for our family. It was very clean, spacious and has three nice bedrooms. It is in a very quiet area of the north shore yet within very close proximity of various activities.
While this house is very close to a few other houses, the residents keep to themselves and are very quiet.
Access to the beach does require a short walk/wade through the river, yet we actually enjoyed it and it never prevented us from accessing the beach. It is a beautiful beach and it is much less busy than other beaches on the north shore. The surf and waves were perfect for our children. The river provides a calmer and safer swimming area for even younger children.
The kitchen is well equipped and the dining area is ideal for 5 or 6 people.
The house also has a nice front lawn in which young children can play.
The house is well located to access Hanalei, Tunnels beach, Kilauea point, and Princeville. It is only about 25 minutes by car to Ke'e beach and the Kalalau trail.
Overall, we enjoyed the house and its location. It is an ideal location on the north shore. We would definitely considering returning.
This spacious 3bedroom/3bath beach house is located across from the semi-secluded Kalihiwai Bay beach on the north shore of Kauai. The Kalihiwai Stream empties into this pristine bay which features some of the best surfing, diving and swimming on the island. Dolphins play in this bay during the summer! Cross over the shallow stream outlet to reach the semi secluded beach.
