Haena is an amazing place. The beach in front of the house is gorgeous!!!! You will love it. So peaceful and so incredibly gorgeous!!!!
You will for sure need to rent a car. Getting around is fun but a car is necessary. We don't have public transit in the area.
Other Things to Note
I have a very friendly black lab dog. He is so friendly and loves to make friends. Please don't be alarmed by him when you arrive… he is as sweet as can be. If you don't like dogs simply let him know to leave and he will not bother you at all. We also have 2 cats, they mind there own business but you will see them around the property. None of the animals are allowed in the studio.
living on the beach, what more can we say!!
Such and amazing place to start our trip. Waking up in the morning and being 20 paces from the beach is priceless!
Mike and Leila are wonderful hosts! Very chilled, great people.
This place is a must
I am going to pretend this is my sweet home in Kauai and cross my fingers that it will always be available! Our trip was so special in large part because of this amazing location.
Just as pictured and described. Plenty of room for all our stuff, wardrobe to hang up items, nightstands with lamps... super comfy pillows and nice sheets. Fridge, microwave, coffee maker and nice tower fan. Handy bathroom and LOVED the outdoor shower - you will too!
Know the picture of the beach - is your beach - right at the end of the beautiful lawn... not down the road... right there! You will be at the best spot for sunrise and sunsets... no need to run all over.. you're there! Beach combing for shells every morning! Just around that point in the picture is Tunnels... best snorkeling and Ke'e is just a bit further. North Shore bliss! Easy drive into Hanalai Bay...or a good coffee spot just at the end of the street.
Two of the sweetest folks live just upstairs - Leila and Mike. Will help you with anything you need. They are very respectful of your space and you'll feel like you have the place to yourself.
The rental had everything we needed, location - it doesn't get any better, owners - kind and love where they live - and now so do we! The North Shore is stunning! We did drive to the South end of the island on three days and it is an easy drive.
We did a lot of exploring while we were there... I look forward to hanging out more under the tiki hut next visit... just where the lawn meets the sand.... I kid you not... this place is amazing!
Big Thanks to Mike and Leila for sharing their amazing home, Toby and I loved staying with you and we cannot wait to come back! Your wonderful home made our trip so very special. The invitation to Montana is always open to you... so Mike can try kite surfing on the ice!
Great hosts and 5 star location. YOU CANNOT BEAT THIS LOCATION. Steps from the beach and a few minutes from Sushi Girl, what more to ask for? Be aware mild critiques only include the small space, lack of kitchen and some noise from upstairs. But all in super friendly hosts and plan to be back.
Great little room right on the beach. Super near the Na Pali coast, a short walk from Tunnel Beach, and quick drive from Hanalei. Talk to Mike (Leila's husband) for any activity related needs (surfing, kayaking, paddle boards, etc). Mike and Leila are more than willing to help answer any questions and help you plan your vacation. The available grill and small fridge is all you need to make quick meals. The dog and cats are friendly and you may be tempted to feed them.
A wonderful vacation on Kauai is all about location, location, location! And this is it if you're looking for beautiful beaches, a terrific view, and first class snorkeling all just steps away from your room.
During our stay, Lelia made us feel very welcome. The accommodations were just as shown and described. My wife especially enjoyed the outdoor shower. We spent little time in the room, so although it was small and basic, the room served it's purpose.
During our stay, the surf was unfortunately too high to safely swim in the water here, but we were able get our fill of swimming and snorkeling with turtles and other marine life just a mile or two up the road at Tunnels beach (the unofficial local name).
Leila is a very welcoming host.
The studio and, most importantly, the beach area, is as it appears in the listing and the neighborhood is a quiet beachfront residential area.
There is a small refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker that I didn't see mentioned in the listing.
