Haena House Rental Photos and Description

2 Private Bedrooms, 2 Baths - plus a queen size day bed

'Kaiolohia' (kai o low he ah) means “peace of mind or calm sea,' and that's surely what you'll discover while staying in this newly remodeled gated home in Haena, an easy 5 minute (less than a 1000 feet) stroll to world-famous Tunnels Beach on the north shore of Kauai. Hidden away from the world; in a lush, tropical setting, this charming traditional Hawaiian cedar-wood home is private and features a large covered lanai backing undeveloped (jungle) conservation land.

Kaiolohia Hale offers the perfect setting for your romantic getaway or extreme adventure. A short easy 5 minute walk (300 meters) to Makua Beach (Tunnels), which is a long sandy beach with a protective outer reef for swimming and snorkeling among sea turtles and the endangered Hawaiian Monk seals. Rated one of the top beaches in Hawaii, Tunnels has very limited parking so being within walking distance is a great advantage. This beach has a spectacular view of Mt. Makana (Bali Hai); the famous backdrop for the classic movie South Pacific. Sailing, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and seasonal whale watching are all close by. Limahuli Garden, Na Pali coast and Kalalau hiking trail (rated one of the top ten hikes in the world) are just a mile away. Four beach-cruiser style bicycles are available to explore all the north shore sights while leaving the car parking issues behind.

Relax in our outdoor hot & cold shower or soak in the 6 foot tub on lanai with jungle views after a day at the beach, hiking or just taking a reading break.

The quaint surf town of Hanalei has two farmers markets per week (Saturday morning & Tuesday afternoon), dozens of dining choices, shopping, surfboard, kayak & other water sports equipment rentals, lessons and tours available.

Twenty five years of returning guests endorses Kaiolohia Hale as the premier Kauai north shore rental destination. Protect your vacation investment, only rent a licensed vacation rental property.

Four wonderful nights on north shore Kaua'i!!!

  • 5 of 5

OMG.... Adam and Kim's property is awesome!! Beautifully done in wood and very spacious inside with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The back yard is a beautiful forest and the neighborhood was very quiet. We loved the easy access to our favorite north shore beach for snorkeling, Tunnels!! Adam and Kim provided everything needed for beach going, like snorkels, fins, chairs, and umbrella. Very gracious hosts who did everything to make us feel comfortable and welcome!!

Practically perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful retreat showed loving, thoughtful and creative care. The furnishings were natural, relaxing and easy to maintain. A beautiful and fully equipped kitchen, complete with espresso machine! Lots of space for many visitors, and a large outdoor lanai as well, with privacy and many birds to observe in the forest. Bikes, trekking poles, scuba equipment ready to use. The hosts were available on site and were friendly and accommodating, with lots of information. Very near the end of the road and easy access to the Na Pali coast trailhead and beach, and the Botanical gardens. A short and gorgeous drive into Hanalei and fun, good restaurants.

Absolutley Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for four nights and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Adam and Kim really have thought of everything for this house and they were such great hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed and gave us great advice on hiking, snorkeling, sightseeing, etc. We really enjoyed being able to visit with them and they were so friendly. They were even so nice to cut up coconuts for our three girls which was a highlight of their trip. The house is very private with the nature preserve as the backyard and thick brush between the neighbors and this house. We were so close to everything on the north shore which is the only place to stay on the island in our opinion. We loved being able to walk 5 minutes down to Tunnels Beach. We are definitely planning on coming to stay here again the next time we come. Thanks for a wonderful week Adam and Kim!

Superb accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This home is beyond superb, the pictures do not do it justice. We have stayed in many rental homes on the islands and this one is by far the best we have stayed in. We don't normally write reviews, can't remember the last time we wrote one and would give this home a 6 or 7 stars if this was possible. The home is located at the rear of the property and is very quiet. It is clean, has every amenity we could imagine, kept in perfect condition, and beautifully designed inside and out with a large beautiful private lanai at the back of the house. It is rare to feel a home so well cared for. The beach which is gorgeous both for swimming and snorkeling is very close. We have rarely used our car, mostly riding bikes which are available to guest to town and beaches. The hosts Kim and Adam are spectacular, very very helpful, kind and offer very sweet touches like bags for groceries, chocolates on your pillows and even help opening coconuts. A can't miss home and very highly recommended!!
