Kauai Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our home is adjacent to the vacation home stay apartment with a private entrance and a designated parking area. The vacation home stay apartment is on the second level with beautiful views of Mt Namolokama featuring breathtaking waterfalls and a view of Hanalei Bay from the outside balcony. The upstairs unit is private yet easily accesiable for guest to talk story for information of Hanalei with owners.

Our vacation home stay comes with a fully equipped kitchen; electric stove top, microwave, refrigerator, and a washer and dryer. The floor plan is very spacious with over 950 square feet of living space. A large lanai area to relax while viewing the mountains or the ocean. Our home is only steps away from the popular Hanalei Bay or what the locals refer to as 'Pine Trees'. Winter swells brings in nice surf and summer sun attracts family vacations.

We provide lots of beach equipment which include: mask and snorkels, beach chairs, beach mat, cooler, lots of beach towels, and also provide our guest with a couple of mountain bikes to enjoy in the town of Hanalei. Nearby shops and restaurants are conveniently located while popular hiking and snorkeling areas are just a few minutes down the road. Also a great area to go jogging or biking!

About Jana Blackstad

An outdoor family of four, Brydan, Jana, Brock, and Miss Jordyn. We two dogs (Mojo & Cash), a boat, a few bikes, and lots of boogie boards to enjoy at the beach. We enjoy going to the beach to fish, swim, diving, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and just hang out with family. We love to travel, so we know how to treat people when they are on vacation.

Jana Blackstad purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jana Blackstad chose Kauai

We have beautiful sand beaches, lots of great snorkeling areas, awesome winter waves for surfing, and beautiful sunsets. We are a family of four who love to spend time with each other, whether it be at the beach: swimming, snorkeling, surfing; fishing on our boat, or hiking in the mountains. We would love to share our home with you while you enjoy your vacation!

What makes this apartment unique

The perfect property if you want to be close to the beach, with all the amenities of a full kitchen, washer/dryer in unit, large master bedroom (cal-king bed) with a beautiful view of the mountains/waterfalls, and a reasonable price. We are a short distance to the famous Hanalei Bay, restaurants, grocery stores, and other amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your apartment is beautiful and we have already been telling our friends about it. We would love to bring our children back with us-our daughter, M, who is 17 loves Hanalei and would love your place. Our baby, W, who is 3 and not really a baby (as you well know) loves spending time digging in the sand. A perfect place for all of us!

My husband and I stayed in the Beach Suite for a week in May. This was after a 10 day stay at a resort in Poipu. We would take the Beach Suite any day!!! The proximity to the beach was number one with us. Such a quick walk and you're there. The apartment had everything we needed. We really enjoyed being so close to Jana and her family. It made us feel like we actually lived in Kauai too. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Katy! Glad you both enjoyed our vacation home. We too are fortunate that we can just walk to the beach and town from our home! Glad you were supplied with all the necessary things while on vacation. Looking forward in seeing you both again! Mahalo - Jana and Brydan

The property was spacious, clean, close to the beach and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, thank you Jana and family. The Beach Suite is in an ideal location and had all the amenities and things we needed to make our stay memorable and enjoyable. It didn't matter at all being above the garage of the family home as it felt as though our place was our own. We recommend this accommodation.

Good location - not really clean

  • 3 of 5

The house does have a great location (3 min from the beach and 2 min from the town center with the car). There were a couple of things though that I want to mention. We traveled with our daughter (18 months old) and it would have been great to know in advance that there is no door between the bedroom and the living room. The dishes were not entirely clean and we did spot a couple of cockroaches. Other than that the family was friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Conrad & Ulli - I appreciate your feedback as I strive to make it a comfortable stay for all of our guests.  I normally do my own cleaning to our rental but due to my busy schedule I have someone else come in to clean it. I will be sure to convey this message to the cleaner, so in the future, our home is spotless, even for babies! Cockroaches, geckos, ants, and spiders are common bugs in Hawai’i...we do try to maintain and eliminate them. As for the door between the living area and the bedroom, yes - there is none. The rental comfortably accommodates adults and is not very baby friendly. We have had other families stay with us and they never complained about it so didn’t know it was a problem. I will be sure to mention that in my advertisement. I am happy that the location was ideal for you and your family, and that I was friendly and helpful. Once again, Thank you for your honest feedback! Our goal is to maintain a clean and comfortable home for guests to enjoy while visiting Kauai. Mahalo - Jana

All of the Aloha...

I don't want any of you to know about how awesome this spot is because I want it for myself. You're two blocks off of Hanalei Bay, with the greatest stretch of Earth in the known universe right in front of you. Jana and her family are totally awesome. The house is fantastic (great improvements to the kitchen and floors, really nice suite, and the porch is two times awesome), but, you'll never be there because you are right in the heart of the Garden Island. If you have a good arm, you could probably throw a baseball to Ching Young, that's how close you are the restaurants on the North Shore. Writing this makes me want to hop a plane and go back right now.

Hanalei, like a local

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay for if you're looking for the local vibe of Hanalei. Surrounded by regular homes (not the fancy rentals on the beach), you feel like you really live in Hanalei. People going to work, mowing their lawns, walking their dogs. At times you hear the local sounds of roosters crowing, dogs barking, waves crashing, surfers walking past. Other times it is nearly silent. Super clean suite with a well appointed kitchen. Having beach towels, surfboards, boogie board and beach chairs at your fingertips is wonderful. The temperature was perfect since it has excellent cross ventilation. Very easy communication with Jana & Brydan who were awesome hosts! (There when you need them but gave you lots of privacy.) I highly highly highly recommend Hanalei Beach Suite!

Thank you for your awesome reviews of our vacation rental. Looking forward for your visits in the near future! Aloha - Jana & Brydan
