The Space

MOUNT MERU HALE is a newly refurbished detached vacation rental STUDIO with private entrance in the quiet and lovely Princeville neighborhood on the GARDEN ISLE of KAUAI.

MOUNT MERU HALE comfortably fits 1-2 adults with small children, this beautiful hale offers tile flooring (a blessing for a mold/mildew free environment), tons of windows and SUNLIGHT with trade breeze, beautiful hardwood details, clean/newly remodeled BRIGHT full bathroom and brand new furnishings to include queen size bamboo bedframe with bamboo mattress for a wonderful night's rest.

MOUNT MERU HALE offers new linens and towels, a couch that folds down into a bed and bamboo writing/dining table for take home INjoyment (refrigerator only - no kitchen).

There are many fabulous local restaurants, some within walking and biking distance, to choose from. While close to all North Shore attractions, MOUNT MERU HALE is located on one of the quietest streets in all of Princeville making it an ideal vacation destination!

Transportation ranges from luxury high end car rentals (in Princeville) to local bus transit. Foodland (a major Kauai grocery store) is within walking distance.

Mount Meru Hale is an all organic, chemical and fragrance free environment from the bedding to the floor cleaner!

We offer tips when requested for maximum vacation INjoyment. We are blessed to live here on this beautiful island and know you are too to want to come experience Kauai for yourself ~'~

MOUNT MERU HALE is an ideal space for a private and quiet getaway on the GARDEN ISLE with a peek a boo view of the ocean (seasonally due to tree trimming), lush flora and fauna abounding, a beautiful orchestra of birds singing in the morning, a perfect lanai for sunset INjoyment and located just minutes from all KAUAI's NORTH SHORE attractions!

Guest Access

We have a shared out door shower with a beautiful mosaic tile mermaid wave inlay! Shower is used by all to rinse off after a fun day at the beach preventing any sand from getting into the indoor plumbing. Injoy!

Interaction with Guests

We live in the main home and are usually home except when traveling to neighbor islands or Bali! We are a very active surf family and are mostly out into our day by sunrise and back in by evening.

The Neighborhood

Location, Location, Location! All the amenities, beaches and everything the North Shore of Kauai has to offer is within an easy 20 minute or less drive. Many attractions are within walking distance including beaches, shopping and dining!

Getting around

There is a bus system that goes around the island with a stop 1.2 miles from the Hale - an easy 15 to 20 minute walk on the community trail.

Other Things to Note

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place to stay if you are looking for somewhere on the North Shore, great access to beaches, restaurants and nearby hikes. Hosts were very personable and accommodating. The space was just what we needed, with a comfortable bed and good air circulation at night made for restful sleep between adventures. My favorite parts were the amount of windows, corner glass as well as the exposed beam ceiling. This is located in a nice neighborhood of Princeville and Mount Meru Hale definitely had good vibes. Will have to plan a trip back, next time I am on Kauai. Thanks again Chris!

  • I had everything I needed at The Hale. Comfort, convenience, spacious and clean room, and most of all hosts that offered gracious hospitality!

    Mahalo Suzanne! It was great hosting you and we hope you come visit us again some time!

    The Almida Ohana

  • Awesome place that I would highly recommend to anyone.

    The host family couldn't have been nicer. They offered great advice on where to go and what to do. They have great local knowledge and were happy to share it. I never felt like a burden asking them questions.

    The room was clean and cozy and exactly what we needed and wanted. Everything was exactly as advertised. The location really was convenient to everything we could possibly want.

    Thanks to the Almida family for making our first trip to Kauai a great experience.

  • Chris and Deedee's sweet little flat is perfect for anyone looking to stay on the North Shore (so close to Hanalei Bay)! It's sun-filled, clean, and has beautiful views of the surrounding trees. Deedee was so gracious in giving advice and insight- we thoroughly enjoyed all of her suggestions, from restaurants to hikes. The whole family has a warm and welcoming nature about them (even their adorable young boys). We would definitely stay here again!

  • Beauty Spot! Loving Energy! Awesome Hosts!

    My girlfriend and I rolled into Chris’ guest hideaway a little travel worn and left absolutely glowing. We stayed only one night on our way to hike the Na Pali Coast. Between watching the sunset over a lush green backdrop and our host’s inside tips for our 4-day hike we both felt a welcoming and loving Aloha embrace.

    If you are looking for a sweet Hanalei Bay spot this is it! I am coming back!!!

  • This is a wonderful place to stay with amazing hosts.

    Location: North shore is the perfect place to stay and Mount Meru is located close to the nicest beaches and to Hanalei which has a great selection of restaurants and little shops. House is located in a quiet and nice area in Princeville. You can drive and/or bike around. The whole area is seemed to be very safe and well taken care of.

    Place: We found the place very clean, comfortable with full of light. It is an ideal setup for two (or three) people; there is no kitchen but there is a refrigerator for you to store food. There is free wifi, and two bikes for you to use.

    Hosts: Chris / Dee Dee are genuinely nice people. They have been very helpful from the get-go and they have a very friendly vibe. They are there to help and make sure you have a great stay. They lived in the area for a while and have great tips on places to see and eat.

    In summary, we loved our stay here and would definitely go back.

  • We had a great time staying at the hale. Chris, Deedee and their boys are very accommodating, kind people with so much Kauai knowledge to share. The location of the hale is just perfect to access everything the north shore has to offer. We had a memorable time on Kauai and would definitely recommend the hale to family, friends, and the airbnb community!

  • Chris and Deedee helped us out in our hour of need. We spent a lovely 4 nights in their hale and really enjoyed the light, the breeze, the sounds of birds, and the outdoor shower in the morning. Their 2 boys were so cute and made me hope that our boys would grow up to be just as sweet and hospitable as these young men were with us. Thank you for sharing your space with us!

  • I had the most relaxing Kaua'i Vacation at this beautiful and highly conscious ohana with Chris and DeeDee: the view in their backyard invoked a constant sense of connectedness with Nature, the kids are loving and open-minded, the Aloha I shared with DeeDee was beyond "just another Airbnb host", and the location was the best the North Shore of Kaua'i can offer. I would highly recommend this hidden gem to anyone who is looking for a great spot to surf near by, enjoy the great outdoor adventures as well as the convenience of the modern world that Princeville still has: I appreciate both!

  • Chris and his beautiful family were great hosts. Always giving us the best tips and making sure we were alright. Their eledest son even baked us a blueberry pie for Christmas breakfast....! I was overwhelmed! Besides, the place is great, really clean and confortable, beautifully decorated, very bright and silent. Excellent experience!
