This was the second time we stayed at the Surfboard House and its the best place to stay in Hanalei and the north shore of Kauai. Last year we enjoyed the amenities of the Love Shack and this year it was the Cowgirl suite. Both are comfortable, quiet and well equipped. I love the beautiful gardens and funky decor...a feast...

Being located on Weke Rd amongst the locals, close to all the Hanalei Bay surf spots and shops and restaurants , the impeccably and eclectically maintained gardens and accommodation of The Surfboard House was perfect for our 10 night stay. Simon was a great host - informed us on all we need to know but otherwise left us to our... More

My husband & I stayed at the Hanalei Surfboard House for a week, we decided to go with the love shack. Simon, the owner was nice enough to show us the rest of the suites. Each room, had it's own vibe going on. The Elvis suite had a bit of spunk to it very rock star-ish. The cow girl suite... More

I had to give a one rating because that was my only choice. I wanted to go here because I read all the great reviews, but I had the most awful text exchange with Mr. Simon Potts and he essentially "fired me" and didn't allow me to make my reservation. On most accounts I am pretty laid back. I was... More

What is this?, tripadvisor take reviews from guests who don't stay at a property. I have no idea who this person is but places with 5 star reviews like mine get many requests i cannot fulfill, i'm sorry this person couldnt get in but we were probably sold out, we have the right to take bookings that we wish to...

Simon is an excellent host and the Hanalei Surfboard House couldn't be a better place to stay in Kauai. You're in a perfect location for the town, the beach, and exploring the north coast. We would absolutely go back!

My father taught me to try to leave every room I enter a little bit better than how I found it. Well, after a week-long stay in the Elvis Suite at Hanalei Surfboard House, there wasn't much I could do to improve conditions that were already perfect from start to finish. Believe the hundreds of glowing reviews before mine -... More

Every year we take a month and spend it in Hanalei. We count down the days until our return and a big part of what makes our stay amazing is The Love Shack. We love it here. Every aspect has been thought out and we love the attention to detail that Simon has put into everything. Year after year we... More

The beauty of this place is unreal but have to say that The Hanalei Surfboard House made the experience unforgettable ! The place has so much character and detail, discovered something new everyday.... More

So glad we chose to stay at the surfboard house in hanalei instead of one of the big hotels in princeville. Felt like being at home instead of a hotel room. Less than a minute walk to beautiful beach in hanalei bay and walkable to the restaurants in town. Simon was incredibly gracious and set us up with one of... More

Second time visiting hanalei. Stayed in the love shack and it was awesome. It has all you need is a 15 second walk to the beach and 5 min walk to town. I can't say enough about how clean the property is and how beautiful the area is. Great spot and I highly recommend it
