HAENA, KAUAI VACATION RENTAL: Swaying Palms Haena ‘Ke Kahakai Hale’ is a beautiful 5 bedroom/ 5 bath home sleeping up to 12 guests and sitting on a fabulous and nearly private beach! The views of the turquoise water from the home are breathtaking! A fabulous location for a family reunion, vacation with friends and family, or just relaxing the days away.
Enter this newly renovated beachfront home (as of Nov 2017) from the covered lanai to reveal a magnificent, panoramic ocean and coastal vista. In this home, the mesmerizing sight and sound of the ocean are with you in all rooms. Lush foliage as well as mature, tropical plants and swaying palm trees decorate the grounds, adding natural beauty and offering privacy.
Families and friends planning time together find this home has a comfortable ambiance for a memorable, relaxing vacation. There is plenty of room to have quiet time alone as well as large rooms and open spaces for gathering together. This special home offers abundant opportunities for relaxation, rejuvenation and renewal. Gazing through the house towards the ocean, guests see and feel the spacious comfort designed into it and appreciate its delightful furnishings and thoughtful amenities.
Off the living room, the large oceanfront deck is a perfect place to greet the day, perhaps with a cup of island coffee or fresh fruit juice. A second deck is situated oceanfront off the dining room. Step down to the sandy beach and stroll for miles along the shore or lounge on the warm sand to relax and unwind. Playful dolphins frolic offshore and, during winter months, watch for giant humpback whales, quite an awesome sight. Monk seals frequent the property year-round. Kite boarders offer frequent displays of their awesome sport.
Evenings bring spectacular sunsets to Kauai’s north shore. The decks, covered lanai and beach offer the best vantage for expansive views although sunsets can be enjoyed from virtually any room of this custom-designed home. Preparing meals at home is convenient in the large, fully equipped kitchen and, for grilling the fresh catch of the day and other favorites, there is a barbecue in the garden fronting the large covered lanai.
Although just a short drive to Princeville and Hanalei’s splendid mix of restaurants, shops and activities, this home is in a peaceful world of its own, an oasis in paradise. A seldom frequented beach, all the comforts of home, and so much more await the discerning guest.
Activities nearby include seasonal swimming and excellent snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, surfing, windsurfing, kite boarding, hiking the world famous Kalalau trail, exploring the towering cliffs of the Napali coast, horseback riding, golf, shopping, tennis and more.
