Excellent hotel, fantastic location (near beach & town), wonderful staff. The room decoration is music funky (lots of memorabilia like gold records) and the property landscaping quite eclectic (surfboards & bowling balls among tropical landscaping). Our kind of lodging. We'll definitely go back for a longer stay.

We just came back from our trip to Kauai, we spent few nights in the Love Shack, and just no words for such an amazing place... every single detail make the surfboard House an excellent place that you can not miss out. At my first contact with Simon I had good experience and made me feel that I have to... More

We spent three weeks travelling in Hawaii during January. Staying at the Hanalei Surfboard House in the Love Shack was the highlight of our holiday. Now that we are back home we are still thinking about how truly amazing our experience was. Simon the owner was fabulous at helping us with information on where to go for dinner and things... More

This review is long overdue as we stayed for 6 nights over the Thanksgiving holiday in the Elvis Suite. As other reviews have noted Simon has thought of everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible and we enjoyed the back pation, the kitchen and BBQ as we ate in often. This is the perfect spot in Hanalei and... More

Hanalei is one of my favorite places in the world, and staying at the Hanalei Surfboard House made the experience even better. Simon is a generous and accommodating host, and his attention to aesthetic details is phenomenal. This is a fun, relaxing, comfortable, quiet, beautiful place, a short block or two from the beach, and a two-minute drive from town... More

I suppose I could sum up this review in this first sentence by revealing that I actually cried when we left The Love Shack I loved it that much! My husband I honeymooned there for 11 days over the Thanksgiving holiday and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. The beach is just across the street- we went daily, whether for... More

Hanalei is beautiful beyond words and having visited many times over the past few years I can say without hesitation that the only place to stay that equals the perfection of this wonder town is the surf board house. This was our second stay and every detail was as good if not better than our first stay. We stayed in... More

This is my second time visiting the Surfboard House. Once again i had an amazing time thank you Simon (the owner). This is such relaxing place to stay and you can't beat the location, directly in front of the beach. I stayed in the cowgirl suite and it was so fun with all the cute decor. I strongly suggest that... More

Let me start with the sound system. At home I play my iPod either through my PC or on a $65 blue tooth device I bought. At Surfboard House I played my iPod through a set of Bose speakers. Jimmy Buffett never sounded so good. That’s the attention to detail. Most accommodation owners who say their place is “fully self-contained”... More

My husband and I enjoy a relaxed, authentic experience when traveling and the Surfboard House gives you exactly that. From the moment we entered the gate, we realized we had found a little piece of heaven. Everything - the location, the amenities, the hospitality were perfection.
