My wife found this place for our trip and I could not have been more pleased about her discovery. I was a bit skeptical at first when she told me that the bed, sitting area, and kitchenette were all in the same room; however, when you go to Hawaii, how much time do you actually spend sitting in your accommodations???...

This was perfect. My daughter and I stayed in the Cowgirl Suite for a week during Christmas. During a hugely busy time on the island, the surfboard house provided privacy, quiet and a beautiful place to stay. Super close to a quiet beach. A lovely private patio and garden. Incredible really! STAY HERE! Nothing like it on the island!

My partner and I traveled as a couple to Kauai from Washington D.C. in late November 2015 for a week-long vacation over Thanksgiving. We decided to stay on the north side of the island the first 3 nights and on the south shore the last 4 nights to experience as much of the island as possible on our first trip... More

We did some homework and found the surfboard house on Weke Road to be a winner. We've been to Kauai quite a bit but always wanted to stay in Hanalei town. Easy to get to and an easy walk to all Hanalei has to offer. This includes restaurants, shopping, bars and a 2 minute walk to the waters edge. Simon... More

Heard of the Surfboard House through some friends who had stayed there during a previous visit. It was a great recommendation - loved our 3 night stay in the Cowgirl Suite. Loved the collectible kitsch vibe in this charmingly arranged suite. It was our first trip to Hawaii, and we found we loved Kauai our absolute favourite, due to our... More

I found the Surfboard House here through TripAdvisor and initially I was on the fence about booking the cowgirl suite because I was traveling as a single person for 10 days and wasn't sure if I should book something more budget-friendly. I am so glad that I did! It was my first time traveling alone and my first true vacation... More

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
