After contacting the establishment to make our initial reservation, the owner immediately replied with detailed information on how to handle things upon arrival, etc., since he was going to be traveling and the manager would be taking care of us. We contacted her to coordinate our arrival time and were all set. Upon getting to the property, there was (as... More

This is the 3rd place we've stayed in Hanalei (Cowgirl Suite). Wish it was the first, because it's the best. Simon's Surfboard House is exactly what any traveler wants from a residential rental. So clean. So comfortable. So close to the beach. And so much character. The attention to detail is as impressive as it is inspiring. Instead of complaints,... More

This place has ruined me. I don't know if I can stay anywhere else. The location is just steps from the ocean, the vintage surf style of décor is impressive, and Simon is the most accommodating host. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation is at the Surfboard House.

It was truly perfect. We stayed in the LoveShack - which was perfectly outfitted. An outdoor grill, outdoor shower (with hot water), coffee maker (they even supplied the coffee), well supplied kitchen (plates, cups, utensils, paper towels, zip lock bags, tin foil), cooler, beach chairs and umbrella. Lots of beach towels. Full Fridge. Very comfortable bed - king size. Short... More

We stayed at the Love Shack, one of the bungalows at the Hanalei Surfboard house. If you are going to Hanalei, you must stay at one of Simon's rentals. The place was so thoughtfully furnished and curated that it felt like coming home each day rather than returning to a hotel room. There were even beach/market bags, local coffee beans... More

We recently stayed for 6 nights at the Surfboard House, and would highly recommend it to anyone. The property is beautiful and the units have absolutely everything you could need- shampoo/conditioner, washer/dryer with soap, hair dryer, beach chairs/umbrellas, etc. We wanted for nothing, and even the little details like books, movies and CDs are perfectly thought out. Also, Jackie was... More

Visited Hanalei from San Francisco for our dear friends wedding. The Surfboard House was absolutely perfect. Had everything someone could possibly need. Communication with Simon during the booking and arriving process was detailed and timely. The Cowgirl Suite was the sweetest place to call home. We would recommend to stay here to anyone. Thank you Simon for the hospitality.

looking for staid, stale and hermetic? move along... nothing to see here. The Surfboard House is ground zero of the most funky & fun spot in the universe. Simon is the king of cool- the grounds & gardens are gorgeous, the rooms are decorated with ultimate style and with comfort in mind. Roll out of bed, brew up a pot... More

The surfboard House is amazing. I stayed in one of the three bungalows surrounded by exquisite gardens everywhere. The location could not be better, it is walking distance to everything and very quiet. All of the rooms have air conditioning which is a plus, my friends staying at other locations were not so lucky. This was recommended to me by... More

Hanalei is magical place and staying at Simon's house is a joy! We've been four times and hope to go back. Two minutes to the beach, perfectly sized spaces with all amenities for couples, a walk to town to a brilliant yoga studio (Yoga Hanalei), a fabulous coffee shop (Hanalei Coffee Roasters) and the most friendly neighbourhood organic farm shop...
