- About Kohola Point at Anini Vista
Perched cliffside and oceanfront in the secluded Anini Vista neighborhood, this 5,320 square foot home overlooks the largest reef in Hawaii and boasts 180-degrees of North Shore views from the historic Kilauea Lighthouse to the romantic sunsets of Bali Hai. Though located minutes from world class golfing, snorkeling, beaches, and all ocean-play imaginable, one might be tempted to stay home given the 3000 square feet of lanai and deck area hosting an ocean/infinity pool and octagonal spa with three waterfalls seemingly spilling out to sea.

I just got home and miss this home and Kauai so much already! This house is perfect! The pool is amazing-I could just float in it and gaze out to sea for hours. The details with the surround bench, the waterfall hot tub,-perfection. All the pool accessories were well used by my family! The landscape is so detailed and beautiful. Every corner has some lovely surprise. The outdoor kitchen is better that going to any restaurant-every meal we made there was better with the view! The home is more than well appointed. The kitchen has everything and more than you need. The bathrooms and bedrooms are spacious and luxurious. It was stunning to wake up with an out of this world sunrise over the lighthouse every morning. The master is on one end with the outdoor kitchen/lanai in the middle and in a separate wing the other 3 bedrooms. It was a great set up to vacation with our 3 young adult kids. When we did need help or a question answered, Don, Joanne and Marie were fast and super helpful. Staying here was one of our most relaxing and enjoyable vacations and we will be back next year!

We wish we could afford to buy this home, we would never leave. The view never stops drawing your attention, the master BDRM is awesome. the kitchen has everything you can imagine plus, the pool and spa are perfectly paired with the outdoor kitchen, the large projection TV was handy to watch our favorite college football team at 6 am, and there are even bikes and beach gear waiting for you in the garage. We've been renting vacation homes for 32 years now, maybe more than sixty homes, all "luxury" homes, and this one is the more than exceeded all our expectations.

The Anini Vista House is truly amazing, the pics really don?t do it justice...our family loved everything about it. We arrived to the Grand Hyatt which obviously has beautiful grounds but quite honestly we were so spoiled from our house that the rooms at the Grand Hyatt were a total downgrade lol!!

We spent a week in mid February. It was absolutely stunning. We got there on a Saturday evening, the staff was waiting for us . Kauai Island vacation staff were very helpful every step of the way. This was a milestone birthday family event for us, and it could not have gone any better. The setting is magnificent. We actually looked forward to days where nothing was scheduled to be able to lounge around and relax at such a beautiful place. The master bedroom and bathroom are huge and ultra luxurious. The house is on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The kitchen deserves special mention. It is spacious and fully equipped, it stood out. Anything an aspiring chef needs is available. Put simply, we spent a most relaxing and beautiful week with the family. We definitely will remember that week for a long time.

This was our first trip to Kauai and it was delightful! The Kohola Point home was exquisite and the location was amazing. We truly didn't want to venture out and do anything because the property was so delightful and peaceful. We watched whales every day from the patio/pool/inside the home. It couldn't have been more perfect for our group. The property offered everything we could have possibly needed to stay and enjoy the location. The Kauai Vacation Rental team was so helpful and delightful we invited them to dinner!! This was the most relaxing vacation we have taken in a while and we can't say enough about all the amenities that were offered at the property! Many thanks to everyone!!

A house full of good feeling with astonishing views...
We stayed at the Kohola Point house for four nights and it was an unforgettable experience. We watched whales playing in the distance in the mornings and there were multiple rainbows (yes plural!) every day. You won't want for space. The great room and the various lanais are perfect for a little meditation or some more prosaic zoning out taking in the Pacific and the dramatic cliffs falling away to your left and right. Every amenity springs to hand and body in this house. Hammock? Outdoor shower? Speakers in every room? Connectivity? Check. If you like to cook you'll find the most kitted-out kitchen imaginable. Kauai, the garden island, offers treks, snorkeling, and any other adventure you can think up, but beware staying at Kohola Point, you won't want to leave this most gracious house.

Mrs. Campbell said, "The beautiful photos on the website can't do full justice to this beautiful home. The gardens are as lovely as the home. Every last gadget and detail are there for you and you won't need (or want) to leave, We enjoyed every minute and thank our gracious hosts, wherever they may be!"

Over~the~top AWESOME is the best way I can describe our recent getaway to North Shore Kauai and the luxury vacation rental experience with Kauai Island Vacations. Everything from their super accommodating and efficient concierge service that helped us dial in the best excursions weeks in advance, to the prompt and warm welcome upon our arrival at the rental was top notch! They took the time to introduce us to the property, answer questions and even gave us insider tips that would lead us to some lesser discovered north shore treasures.
But it was truly the luxury rental itself at Kohola Point that blew our minds. Beyond being one of the most gorgeous views to be had on island, the house was immaculate, full of every amenity you could want from cappuccino machine, sound system, pool, spa, beach toys and everything in between! The only issue we struggled with is that the property was so darn magical and compelling we almost didn't want to leave to go exploring!
Holly, Don & Joanne: you guys rock!!! Your extraordinary service puts you in a class of your own.... and having been a Real Estate Broker myself for 33 years, I know what excellence looks like!!!
Thanks for making our Aloha experience one that we'll never forget!!!

Amazing private location and views?we could literally watch whales from our master suite bed...villa is immaculate with all the amenities...picturesque landscaping...on site personnel were great
Kohola Point Villa was the perfect choice for our family getaway. The views were breathtaking and the house was beautifully designed and spacious. The master bedroom was a dream! The location was privately nestled into a small gated community and only a 15-minute drive to the town of Hanalei. The Villa was stocked well for vacation needs and the pool was great. We spent the extra fee to heat the pool and it was well worth it. The kids swam morning, noon, and night! We would return to this Villa in a heart beat!

8 of us (Four couples) recently stayed a week at Kohola Point on the beautiful island of Kauai that we booked through Kauai Island Vacations. The entire process of working with Kauai Island Vacations was effortless and pleasurable and I cant say enough about what great people they are and what great service they provided. While there we had a couple of occasions to call Kauai Island Vacations and immediately our calls and questions were answered. One day we had an emergency in that we couldnt find martini glasses! LOL.. well, within an hour the emergency was mitigated with the hand delivery of eight martini glasses! Wow, way beyond what we expected and much appreciated, although the next morning we realized we didnt have enough Advil to go around! Oh my.... Seriously though, all the people were great to work with and I would, without hesitation, recommend Kauai Island Vacations.
The House itself is simply amazing with million dollar views that would impress the most discriminating of travelers with four private rooms great for couples or families or just a big group of friends. The kitchen was stocked with every cooking utensil and kitchen item known to man including pots, pans, bowls, cookie sheets, cutlery, coffee makers, Nespresso machine, you name it, they had it. If youre not one to cook, no problem, both Princeville and Hanalei Bay are but a short drive away where you will find many good food establishments.
Simply put, if youre looking for a really-really-really nice house to rent on the north shore of Kauai, this is it!
The house was beautiful! Very well equipped as well, all the gear, personal items and kitchen equipment we needed was neatly arranged throughout the house and garage. Plenty of room for all 6 of us. Beautiful grounds with flowers and plants, and the view was one of the best on the island. Quiet and secluded yet close to shopping and restaurants. Highly recommend the Tavern for lunch and dinner.
