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 with mountain views.

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 seven 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.

Amazing home in a quiet location with excellent hosts.

  • 5 of 5

My brother + I shared ten days in this beautiful home close to Tunnels. By far the best beach within walking distance. Adam + Kim are warm + really made the experience great. The home is so comfortable + clean and secure. I have rented on VRBO before + this by far was the best experience + I would recommend this place to my family + friends. I plan on coming back to this little piece of paradise.

Thank you Adam + Kim.

Just a short stroll to tunnels beach

  • 5 of 5

Great location!! Very quiet and private back porch with a romantic jungle view. Interior was perfect, beautiful decor, very well supplied kitchen with top notch appliances and most importantly very clean and comfortable beds/linens. Adam & Kim were extraordinarily accommodating and thoughtful. This was my favorite VRBO rental on Kauai after 10 visits to the island.

This is a special place!

  • 5 of 5

Adam and Kim are amazing hosts. This rental comes with everything from great cookware to snorkling gear. The home has beautiful lush landscaping and is a short walk to a spectacular snorkling beach in Tunnels. The north shore of Kauai is a special place and booking with Adam and Kim is a great way to experience this beauty. I highly recommend this property.

This house has an ideal location on the North Shore of Kauai and a magical feeling about it. The setting is private, luxurious, comfortable, warm, inviting and the perfect place to begin your Hawwaiian Adventure! Many times we have lamented the fact that we did not have more time to spend just relaxing and enjoying the amenities of the house. We did however, enjoy the outdoor bathtub and shower! The tropical landscaping and the 300 acre conservation land behind the property give you total privacy. There are also two full bathrooms inside. The large lanai was the perfect place to have a massage. From the front gate, enjoy a short stroll and spectacular mountain views on your way to the mind-boggling beauty of the beach! Every day was an enchanting adventure from misty mornings in the mountains, to rainbows that cover the sky, to kayaking the spectacular Na Pali Coastline, Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins and Green Sea Turtles at home and in the Wild! Adam and Kim could not have been more helpful! They have done a beautiful job in appointing the house with everything you will need. Mahalo for an amazing time on Kauai!

A genuine e Hawaiian experience

  • 4 of 5

A design house a few minutes walking from the beach in a quiet neighborhood .

Everything to rest with an easy access to the "end of the road" and Napali Trail or Hanalei for restaurant and trendy bar.
