About Denise DuBarry Hay
Our family has been visiting Kauai for 8 years and decided that we wanted to spend more time here. We looked for the right home all over the north shore for over 4 years before we bought this one. We spend most of our time here but we do go back to our second home in California for 5-6 months every year.
Denise DuBarry Hay purchased this Estate in 2011
Why Denise DuBarry Hay chose Hanalei
Having children that range in age from 14 to 30, we wanted our home to be in the center of a wide variety of activities that could be accessed by walking or biking. This house is ideally located on Hanalei Bay, a 5 minute walk will get you into the center of Hanalei town, a 15 minute walk to the pier and the Hanalei River and world class surfing right outside the door (during the winter months). We have spent the last couple of years completely remodeling the home and the 1 acre of land it sits on. The house has a deep lot on a wide and deep beach with a maze of ironwood shrubs that kids love to play in. Did you see the film 'The Descendants' with George Clooney? If you did, you saw our beach.
What makes this Estate unique
We remodeled this home with total comfort and beauty in mind. When you first arrive at the gate, the lava rock wall isn't just any wall, it's full of artisan mosaics with fantastical sea life. Yard art from Bali peppers the landscape and makes you feel that you are at an exclusive resort. Let's face it, we want to be spoiled here at the beach. Every room has a big screen television and there's turbo internet throughout the house. There are lots of areas to sit and play. A screened in upstairs lanai, outdoor full kitchen and tiki bar which seats 10, jacuzzi, a cushioned teak porch swing with a view of the ocean, a ping pong/pool table, outdoor shower and an outdoor massage table and, in our opinion, the best beach on the planet make this place feel like you've found paradise.

Birthday Getaway to Hanalei
This property was fantastic! It was the perfect set-up to celebrate several "decades" birthdays in our family. We came with my husband's three kids and our 8 month old grandson. It poured rain almost the entire time we were in Kauai and the house is what saved us! I affectionately refer to the kids as energizer bunnies and the house came equipped with every water toy you could think of as well as lawn games so we could enjoy the incredible lawn that leads down to the beach. The hot tub was also a saving grace as the kids spent a lot of time in the water and would get chilled and then jump into the tub to warm up. When my husband and I arrived in Lihue we went straight to Costco and stocked the house for the week so we barely had to leave other than for a few island adventures. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed to cook. The outdoor Tiki bar/kitchen was amazing and we cooked most meals out there and made good use of the pizza oven. Even on nights when it was pouring rain, it allowed us to be outside.
The house is only a short two block walk to the heart of Hanalei which gave everyone in the family flexibility to wander and explore as they saw fit. We headed to The Dolphin fish shop most afternoons to pick up fresh fish to grill for dinner. We did eat out our last night there at Ama as it was delicious. And we had the mandatory Mai Tai at Tahiti Nui, the oldest bar in Hanalei.
The cost of the house was bit of a stretch for us, but we really wanted to make this birthday celebration special so ponied up the extra money.....and it was worth every penny!
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you all had a great vacation. Please come again.
Fabulous Family Vacation!
We love the home and it's location and thoroughly enjoyed every minute there. The home is well appointed and satisfied all of our needs. Could not have been a better time for us!!!
Hanalei Honu Hale
Our family had the most spectacular week ever. Thank you Denise for sharing your Paradise.
We're so happy you had a great time. Hanalei was hit hard with the recent floods and we're grateful that our home was unscathed. It is definitely our 'Paradise' and I can't wait to get back there myself. Glad you made some great family memories.
It was amazing---
Our family of 13 had the greatest time of their life! We have lots of memories. It was our 3 daughters, their husbands and our 5 grandchildren. The huge yard was a blessing and easy access to the beach. The house was so spacious and easy to gather as a group. The kitchen was amazing and everyone could make their own breakfast or whatever. We thoroughly enjoyed the tiki bar--- good place to hang out after the kids went to bed. The location of the house made it easy walking distance into Hanalei.
The view everyday was amazing.
We have been to Kauai quite of few times and love the island and wanted to share this with our family.
We would love to come back!
Thank you for the memories!
We're happy to hear that your family enjoyed the house and that your vacation was so special. This house is perfect for large families with varied interests. Come back soon.
Does not get better, more beautiful than this!
We'll be back😊👍
