I recently travelled to Hanalei with my young daughter, and stayed here. Right from my very first enquiries, Shannon and Jim were accommodating and understanding, and I was extremely impressed with their very quick responses and solutions. I was in the studio unit and the only issue I had during my stay was with the hot water, which Shannon and... More

I loved the location of this rental. The walk to the beach was about 5min and it was in the heart of Hanalei. We were steps away from restaurants, bars, and shopping. The noise didn't seem to bother us and I consider myself to be a light sleeper. The 1 bedroom was clean and was equipped with beach chairs, boogie... More

We just got back from a week in Kauai, and really wanted to stay right in Hanalei (our favorite part of the island). I found the Hanalei Vacation House thanks to you kind people on trip advisor- and I am so thankful I did! It was wonderful having our own little apartment and patio, rather than being in a hotel....

Hanalei is a must if you visit Kauai. It's a young and lively little town with gorgeous shops (an asset difficult to find in the islands), varied restaurants, a gorgeous beach (Hanalei Bay, one of the best in Hawaii) and surprisingly, a lot of nightlife!! This place is right in the heart of the town: it's not easy to find... More

This is our third time staying at hanaleivacationhouse and it always feels like home. First two visits we had the entire house for a high school student Surf trip, so we can say each of the 4 apartment-like options is well worth the price. The house has a lush fenced yard, it is across from local shopping and 2 long... More

This was our second staying here over the past 5 years. We love it! The location simply cannot be beat (especially for the price) -- you are right in town and an easy walk to the beach, as well. We have stayed in the 2-bedroom unit upstairs both times and really enjoy it. It's very comfortable and it's nice to... More

Love staying here but it's in town... the people who complain about the noise need to understand what a deal they are getting to be able to stay between million dollar homes for prices cheaper than a hotel. Jim and Shannon are wonderful and they provide everything... from beach towels to books and a DVD player. Perfect spot for anyone... More

My husband and I stayed in the one bedroom unit and loved the location. It's really easy to walk to town and to the beach. We weren't bothered at all by the late night club next door. We really appreciated the mats and boogie board to take to the beach and absolutely loved staying in Hanalei. Booking was easy over... More

We stayed at the Vacation house twice now and we were never disappointed. Jim and Shannon keep the house and grounds very clean and everything possible is provided to make your stay a memorable one. All 4 units are very well kept. Yes, it might be a bit loud at times during the night, but hey, so what? who cares... More

This 4 unit home is perfect for someone who is not into the resort style of vacationing. We stayed here for 8 days and loved every second of from the minute we walked through the door! The location is perfect. You can walk to Hanalei Bay in less than 5 minutes and you are across the street from the famous... More
