This location on the North shore was amazing! The only thing that would beat it would be to be on the beach. It is just yards away from a very secluded beach and a short walk to Tunnels beach, our favorite with the snorkeling and amazing views. The views on the morning runs were incredible but be smart about the cars heading into the beaches and state park. The place was spacious, clean, and quiet but a little rustic. We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to experience the North shore at this location. Can't wait to come back!

The house was perfect for us! We had a lot of rain while in Kauai, and were very glad we chose the bungalow when we weren't able to go out hiking, etc. The beach was steps away, and the porch with hammock was great for being outside and watching the rain. The living space was spacious, the high ceilings and windows didn't make you feel like you were stuck inside. The property had everything we needed... AND, it was very clean and well-maintained. I could go on and on, but this review asks for summary of property. Bottom line, no complaints!

This is my fourth time to Kauai and this has been my favorite stay by far. This house was phenomenal! It was very spacious, clean, and had old Hawaiian charm in a premium location close to the beach on the north shore in Haena. Though it was right off Kuhio hwy, it was quiet and felt secluded. The location gave a more local experience away from the resorts and shops. The rental company was quick to respond to any needs and the house was stocked with anything needed. It was such an amazing spot with outstanding views of my favorite part of the island. I can't wait to stay here again!!!

We were delighted with our accommodations at this lovely home on the north shore. With a short walk to Tunnels Beach, we were able to enjoy snorkeling and relaxation time by the water. Hale Ho'olapanai had everything we needed for our family of four to have the perfect vacation. It was so clean and we loved all the windows, the comfortable patio complete with hammock, and even bocce ball! Thank you for helping us create a vacation we will remember forever!

“Hi Joanne, We had a great trip. Really enjoyed the house. Your attention to detail made the stay very nice. House was very well appointed. Clean windows, clean house, good internet, comfortable bed, lots of soaps, detergents, etc. Every kitchen gadget at hand, gas in the BBQ, lots of towels, washer and dryer worked, flashlights and working batteries for when the power went off. We would stay again on a future trip.”
