HAENA, KAUAI VACATION RENTAL: Kauai’s North Shore has been a frequent backdrop for countless movies due to its incredibly lush beauty and phenomenal beaches. Nestled within this gorgeous, pristine expanse, lies the 3 bedroom, 2 bath Haena Kai. Set back just thirty paces from a soft, deserted, coral sand beach, this three-bedroom, two-bath, elevated home awaits your family retreat. If you want to escape the crowds and let the soothing surf wash your cares away, welcome to your piece of paradise.
Surrounded for privacy by a lava rock wall, towering coconut palms, and lush landscaping, Ha’ena Kai’s elevated position, wall of windows, and wraparound lanai capture superlative views of the reef and fringing mountains. The home’s open architectural design creates an inviting gathering space while also allowing for breezy trade winds to cool the sanctuary naturally. Additional ceiling fans are strategically located throughout the structure to ensure your comfort yet retain that Old Hawaiian feel. Best of all, Haena Kai has recently undergone a dramatic and purposeful renovation to make your visit a respite of pure pleasure and renewal.
The home’s interior has been tastefully yet charmingly transformed to meet your every need in style. A new gourmet grill on the lanai and a kitchen filled with state-of-the-art, stainless steel appliances beckon you to prepare that special meal you’ve always wanted to enjoy in a tropical setting. But if you don’t feel like cooking, no worries! One of Kauai’s top-rated restaurants is but a hundred-yard walk down the beach. The main living area has been appointed with invitingly comfortable furniture and should you desire some visual entertainment, the new 65-inch 4K UHD television set awaits. The main living area is also equipped with a workstation and high-speed wireless internet access for those who must touch bases with the outside world. When the day is done, three thoughtfully appointed, soothing bedrooms stand ready to comfort and recharge your soul and the 1000-count Egyptian cotton sheets ensure your slumbers will be sound and satisfying. AC in all bedrooms is a rarity and another reason Haena Kai is a true gem!

“I have been fortunate enough to have visited Kauai several times, but never have I stayed in accommodations as lovely and as comfortable as these. The house, which has been beautifully updated and remodeled by the owners, is a perfect complement to the beauty of the natural environment that surrounds it. Stepping inside, one instantly leaves the stresses of modern everyday life and enters the world of “aloha time.” The open and flowing layout with abundant natural light, the spacious, fully equipped and modern kitchen, the serene and soothing color scheme and tastefully chosen décor (LOVED those gorgeous corals!), wonderfully comfortable beds – all of this made our stay a wonderful vacation we will remember always. The interior and ocean view were so lovely, it was hard to tear ourselves away. But the private and quiet beach, only steps away, beckons, and offers up your own little slice of paradise. Here, you can sunbathe, swim and snorkel at leisure, without having to share with hordes of other beach goers. For beginning or more timid snorkelers, the lovely Ke’e Beach, which offers a protected bay, is but a short drive away. You are also close to other great snorkeling beaches such as Tunnels, as well as easy access to shopping and restaurants in Hanalei and Princeville. Be sure to stop by the famous Tahiti Nui Restaurant in nearby Hanalei for absolutely the best burger and Mai Tai I have ever had! I swear, I could have stayed there and drank those scrumptious Mai Tai’s all day long! Haena Kai is an absolute tropical paradise, a vacation dream come true. A week’s stay was hardly enough. I give it my very highest recommendation.” August, 2016
“This retreat has the most ideal location on the entire island for your next getaway! It is on the North Shore just a few minutes from Tunnels and Ke’e beaches and is right next to the great resort towns of Hanalei and Princeville that really have all of the services you would need. It is a few minutes from the famous Kalalau Trail and excursions to view the Napali Coast. The house is perfectly decorated with all high-end finishes that made us feel so pampered! The views from all of the living spaces were spectacular. We will never forget the calming sounds of the ocean waves and the cool breeze from our bedroom and the deck. There is a great view of the ocean from the rooms, but better yet your feet are wet in the ocean water in a matter of seconds after walking down the path from the house. We snorkeled several times off that beach with great views of tropical fish. I cannot imagine a better maintained, decorated, or located retreat! We can’t wait to visit again . . . thanks for the memories!” July, 2016
“We read all the great reviews and this home more than lived up to our expectations. The location is perfect for a relaxing getaway or adventure seekers. The property was in pristine condition and had everything we needed….beach towels, snorkel equipment, flashlights, first aid supplies,and the kitchen had EVERYTHING! We have rented many homes and this had the best cooking tools and condiments. We made fruit smoothies every morning and Pina Coladas at night. There were even were several board games which we played several evenings. The beds were super comfortable and the sheets were high quality. Every night we fell asleep to the sound of the ocean and in the morning we awoke to the sound of the ocean, light rain showers, singing birds and roosters. We walked to Tunnels Beach several times and it was a quick drive to Kee Beach and the trailhead for the Kalalau Trail. The drive to Hanalei was gorgeous and took about 10 minutes. My four teenagers fell in love with Kauai and agreed this was our best family vacation ever. Their only complaint was that 10 days was not enough. The staff was very responsive and helpful over a few minor questions. I really can’t say enough about this property. I’ve been home for a week and I’m so relaxed and dreaming of returning to Haena Kai.” July 2016
