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 Hanalei

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 an upstairs apartment: stove top, microwave, refrigerator, 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!

Hanalei Beach Suite

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with Jana and Brydon and family (and Mojo). I wouldn't stay anywhere else. If you want fancy and lush accommodations, go to the St. Regis or a Poipu condo. If you want a relaxing down-home island feel, this is the place. For us, there is no other place to be on Kauai. :)

Live the local life

  • 5 of 5

The family that runs the upstairs unit is very friendly and receptive to your needs. As an avid surfer I learned that when sitting on the balcony you could look down the street and peek through an opening in the trees and see the ocean. If I could see a wave cresting I knew that Pine Trees was going to be shoulder to head high. If I could see the rebounding whitewater, then Middles was going to be double overhead. Such an awesome spot to stay, you can literally walk barefoot, board under your arm and hop in the water with in 2 min. Non surfers also reaped the benefits of staying so close. If you walk to the beach and go the left you can swim without being tossed about by the surf. The beach close to the house is almost all soft coral sand, very friendly on the family feet. Things you should be aware of as this is not a bed and breakfast or a hotel type experience. The family below is just that a family they work go to school and enjoy themselves. You will hear them but as far as we were concerned it was cool and we were left to our own schedule, they were very responsive if we needed anything. The hot water at this locale is solar, so if you want a hot shower before the sun is up, you'll need to coordinate with them to they turn on the heater. But you're going to Hawaii right?! So who cares... take a shower after playing at the beach, clean up for a nice dinner out and the water is hot and lovely. Would love to come and stay at this delightful locale again. Mahalo~!

Great place very close to Hanalei Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Jana and Bryden were great very friendly hosts and are a real local family. The unit enjoys great views of the mountains and some of the ocean side. The street leading up to the beach park is very quiet and residential. They even provide bikes to get to Hanalei town with shops and restaurants. Even on foot it is only 15 min along residential streets if you want to avoid the highway. The unit is very spacious and I found it very clean. Only thing: The bedroom is missing a door and the bed in the living area is small. For a solo traveller or a couple this is not an issue. Just if you are planning to bring a friend who wishes to have some privacy. The kitchen has everything except an dishwasher. Overall the great location justifies the rate (its Hanalei after all).

Owner's Response: Aloha G! We are happy that your stay with us was a memorable one. Yes there no door from the bedroom to living area so the vacation apartment is ideal for either a single occupant or a couple. Thank you for staying with us and hope to meet up again! Mahalo - Brydan and Jana

It's a beatiful place with amazing views and a blick away from the worlds loveliest beach.

Although Hanalei seems to be accelerating its trend towards a getaway for the super rich, Jana's place on Anea road still feels like a regular neighborhood. We'll keep coming back

Owner's Response: Aloha John! Thank you for the honest and on point review. Although, our island and especially the area of Hanalei is growing and "accelerating its trend towards a getaway for the super rich", we like to think our neighborhood and our home gives off more of a laid back and more traditional vibe. Take care and hope to see you soon. Mahalo, Jana & Brydan
