Beautiful Kauai North Shore Beach House

Kilauea, HI, USA
  • House2500 sqft
  • Bedrooms3
  • Sleeps6
  • Bathrooms3
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay3 nights

Spacious 3 bedroom/2 (1/2) with shared jacuzzi & 1 full bathroom

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.

About Ginny Shinn

My passion is Kauai. I love this special island and sharing my home and this island brings me great joy.

Ginny Shinn purchased this House in 2002

Why Ginny Shinn chose Kalihiwai

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!

What makes this House unique

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.

              Stream is located 1 minute walk from home. Great for kayaking, fishing, crabbing and Stand Up Paddling! It's like going back in prehistoric time when you go up the stream.

                                                                      This house is the bomb! We had 6 adults and we never felt crowded. The kitchen was fairly well equipped and we cooked many meals at home. The location could not be better unless it was actually on the beach. Such a short walk to get to, arguably, the best beach on the entire island (you do have to cross a thigh high stream to get there). Very short drive (< 10 mins) to Foodland grocery in Princeville. The internet connection was fast even with everyone in the house connected at the same time. When we come back to Kauai, we will definitely want to stay in this rental!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The weather wasn't as cooperative but the location of the home close to so many pristine beaches made our time great! The river was a bit of a pain to cross than we thought but we rented kayaks and having the river nearby made it very nice! Rooms in the home are very big and the BIG tub was a definitely a plus when we came home on rainy days with a bit of a chill. Hanalei Bay was a quick drive and is the coolest little town on the Island.

                                                                      Beautiful! Well Maintained!

                                                                      The pictures of this property does not do it justice. The property is beautiful and well maintained. We were throughly impressed. The house was clean and provided everything we needed for our stay. The beach in front of the house was very cool. My kids enjoyed the rope swing at the river and playing in the waves. We had some rain but it did not put a damper on our time there. The kitchen was perfect since we cooked almost every meal there. I had everything I needed. We had 4 adults and 2 pre-teens. There was plenty of space for us. Also, the neighbors were very friendly. Thank you for a wonderful place to bring my family. I would definitely book again if we came back to Kauai. Mahalo!

                                                                      Great location! We loved our stay in Kalihiwai!!

                                                                      Alexandra B.

                                                                      Our family of five stayed here for five wonderful days! The house is roomy, clean and comfortable with a very short walk to an incredible beach, truly a favorite of the locals we met. You do need to wade though the Kalihiwai River to get to the beach but it's only about knee to thigh high. Kayaking or stand up paddling up the river is a must. We paddled up to the bridge but turned around before reaching the waterfall due to a heavy downpour. We also spent time in beautiful Hanalei for surf lessons (loved Hanalei Surf School for lessons and SUP rentals too), snorkeled at Anini Beach and even made it to Waimea Canyon, a little less than a two hour drive away. We had a fantastic and memorable trip and the Kalihiwai house was a great location for us to explore the island!

                                                                      Pleasant, clean and lovely!

                                                                      We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful home on the North Shore. Located very close to Anini Beach (one of our favorites). I loved laying in bed with the windows open (felt very safe) listening to the rain. It was quite and peaceful, away from all the other visitors. Ginny was wonderful to work with. Glad we booked this house. It was great!

                                                                      Beautiful!!!! Very close access to one of the most spectacular beaches.

The location was ideal and down the street from one of the most beautiful beaches. We loved that there was a river to cross to access the beach by foot.

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.
