About Katie Howland
About the owners Doug, Bev, Miranda, and Katie Howland: Doug and Bev were first drawn to Kauai in the early 80’s, after many visits they finally decided to buy this wonderful property in 2006. Doug, a 35-year designer/builder, has spent the last 10 years personalizing the house. Bev, a jack-of-all-trades, has owned a health food store, opened a charter elementary school, run a motel, and managed their various properties over the years. Their youngest daughter Katie lives in Portland with her older sister Miranda. After a career in the arts, Katie now manages the family’s properties. Doug and Beverly now migrate between their properties in Arizona, Utah, and Hawaii. They like to hike, horseback ride, ski, practice yoga, whitewater raft, dance, and travel in their free time. They also have vacation rentals in the Escalante Canyons of Southern Utah and in the town of Sedona in Northern Arizona.

Why Katie Howland chose Haena
Doug and Bev were always drawn to the North Shore, when making the decision to put down roots, they couldn’t resist the best part of the island. They fell in love with the unique beauty of their home that balances both accessibility and seclusion.
What makes this House unique
There are many amazing natural wonders right out the front door (see above). This home offers the lush mountainous jungle of Kauai out the back door and the soothing beach and ocean out the front door.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The house was perfect! Across from the beach, yet tucked in the jungle for privacy. The house had everything you could want as well as excellently decorated. We enjoyed the stay on Kauai🌺�
Amazing views and perfect amenities in the home!!
Best place on the island to stay close to everything on the north shore to do as we pleased definitely would stay here again!!
What a hidden gem! The perfect house for our group of 5 adults. The whole house was well maintained, beautiful gourmet kitchen, comfortable beds, huge lanai and the most beautiful and lush grounds. PLEASE NOTE: The ocean view is from a distance and partially blocked by trees, not an expansive view of the ocean. Katie was an absolute doll to work and very responsive. We had never stayed on the north shore of Kaua’i and totally fell in love with it. We will be back!
Lovely Kauai Beach Getaway
We had four couples stay at Hale Aloha. We loved the isolated location, the beautiful home, the ocean view, the lush setting, and the peaceful nature of our surroundings. We appreciated the well stocked home including everything we needed for trips to the beach. We had a lovely time and would love to return again.
The Perfect Family Vacation Rental
My husband and I, along with our adult children and partners (and our three month old grandson!), stayed in this lovely home for a week and loved everything about it. The home is clean and spacious, with a fantastic kitchen and common area. The beds were comfortable and the furnishings really suited the environment. Everyone loved the outdoor shower and the lanai, which is AMAZING--ocean views, private, sheltered, and spacious. Close to beautiful beaches, and about a ten minute drive to Hanalei. Everything went incredibly smoothly with booking, communication, and check in. We can't wait to return!
Incredible experience in Kauai - Haena
We had a great stay.
We were a family of 6 adults and one 3 years old boy.
The house is beautiful and had a lot of character, was clean and well furnished. And was in good shape. For the foodies it has a great kitchen opening on the dining and the living space (under an high ceiling)
Nice view on the beach so you could hear the constant sound of the waves. No bothered at all by the crowing of the roosters.
Well located: close to beaches (where monk seal would come to rest during the day), close to shopping (20' drive) and easy to get to other places on the island (knowing that you are up North of the Island).
For jogging you could run from the house up to Kee's beach (3 miles total) early morning to avoid traffic.
We would recommend the helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian..and buy your organic food at Hanalei Harvest Market.
Everything went incredibly easy with booking, communication, and check in.
We can't wait to return!
