    We stayed in the Elvis suite for 10 days while Simon was on holiday in September. This was our second stay in Hanalei. We especially enjoyed the well kept grounds and peaceful surrounds, easy walking distance to town and to the beach. El Nino brought in a lack of trade winds so the weather was stifling and fortunately the room... More

    Beautiful place and great host! The love shack competes seriously with the paradisiacal beach nearby. Everything was as in the pictures or better :) It is not cheap by any means, but worth it. For resort-lovers, there is a city nearby (Princeville), please do not spoil Hanaley's vibe...

    Surfboard House is an excellent property in a perfect location. Steps from Hanalei Bay, and an easy walk to the restaurants and shops of Hanalei, we couldn't have asked for a better home base, and the beautiful gardens and kitschy decor were a welcome sight every evening. The Love Shack has a private entrance, outdoor shower, grill, patio table, fridge,... More

    We've stayed at many of the homes on Hanalei Bay over the years and I've got to say that the Surfboard House is now my FAVORITE! My husband and I had already been on Kauai a few days and we needed to vacate our Princeville condo early in the morning before moving to Hanalei. Simon, the owner, was very accomodating... More

    My husband and I stayed in both the Elvis room and the cowgirl suite for our honeymoon last month. The uniquely decorated studio was romantic, had everything we could possibly need for a day out including a cooler and beach chairs and was located in the best part of the island in an quiet, peaceful neighborhood right across from Hanalei...

    This place was incredible very very clean it felt like being home. Excellent location across the beach. I came alone and the owners were so kind they treated me like family and made me feel very welcomed. They had great suggestions on what to do and where to go. I can truly say I took full advantage of the island... More

    My son and I stayed in the Elvis room at the Hanalei Surfboard House for 11 nights. Arrived at the property and the place looked better than the photo's. Simon was friendly and had everything and more available for us to use and gave us ideas on where to go and what to see. The beach was 3 minutes away... More

    We recently spent five lovely days in the Elvis Room at The Hanalei Surfboard House. From the moment of our arrival and throughout our stay we felt welcomed and relaxed. Jackie met us when we arrived and periodically checked in with us to answer any questions and or give advice about everything we needed from local restaurants to the best... More

    Staying in Hanalei at the Hanalei Surfboard House was one of the best vacations we have ever experienced. In fact, in the 5 days we were staying in the Cowgirl Suite we tried to brainstorm ways to stay permanently! (No such luck). We stayed 3 days on the south shore and 5 days on the north shore as our last... More
