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. 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!!
Beautiful place, exactly as described.
My only negative comment would be regarding hearing the people upstairs walking about... But even that was minimal. Loved the outdoor shower!
My wife and I had an amazing time at Leila and Mike's guestroom and accommodations, at a very special beachfront location - must be seen to be believed. The beach is just a few steps from the guestroom, and is very private with a community feel - no hordes of tourists! The outdoor bathroom and shower are just around the corner from the guestroom. Everything is well maintained. Come experience the magic of the north shore of Kauai like a local (and leave your ego at home : )
Also a big bonus - Mike and Leila own and operate an adventure company, so whether you want to learn to surf or see the Na Pali coast by jetski - they can make it happen. Mike personally acted as our guide to see the coast by jetski - and it was an unforgettable experience. Not only does he know the in's and out's of the coastline, he's also a very experienced waterman and made sure that we were safe and secure the entire time.
The location is really really special - and so are the hosts! Five stars!!
Couldn't imagine a more perfect setting to celebrate our honeymoon in Kauai. The beach in front of the house was the perfect spot to relax, swim and watch the sunset. We swam with sea turtles at Tunnels Beach - just a short walk down the beach from the house. We also enjoyed staying up to check out the stars at night. Leila and Mike were very friendly and welcoming hosts and happy to help with anything we needed during our stay. We look forward to returning to visit this great spot. Thank you for such a memorable stay!
We had an amazing time! Leila and her husband we're super welcoming and cordial but also very laid back. The room is perfect for two people and the outdoor shower is heavenly. The best part though i that you are about 20 steps from an insanely gorgeous beach. Perfect for taking a morning swim, a long walk along the sand and watching the sunset. Leila has tons of chairs and tables and the whole place has a relaxed feel. Of course you'll want to go exploring but you'll also love just hanging out at home by the beach, reading in the hammock or playing cards. It's close to Hanelei so you can hit the restaurants and grocery store there (for beer and snacks!) and there's a coffee shop down the road that had delicious iced coffee and bagels for breakfast. This is a wonderful place to stay in Kauai!
We had the best experience with Leila and Mike in their slice of paradise. Incredible location, fun and welcoming hosts, and everything you need for a getaway to Kauai. Mike and Leila are lovely and made us feel right at home. Wish we could have stayed an extra week...but will definitely visit and stay here again.
Warm welcome on arrival. Studio is in a fabulous location on the lower level of Leila and Mikes home. Literally steps from one of the most beautiful natural beaches I've ever seen.
Prime location for hiking, camping and access into Hanalei (a short 10 minute drive) - with close access to Tunnels beach for snorkeling and swimming.
The accommodation itself is quite small and Leila was very upfront with us on this when we booked for a week. There is a fridge and freezer in the studio and access to the bathroom is right round the corner. Leila and Mike provided flashlights for access in the evening. We had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting the other island of Hawaii soon.
