Myself and my new husband have just returned home from a 2 week stay at the surfboard house in Kauai for our honeymoon. It was the most incredible experience we have ever had. Traveling from London UK we had no idea how beautiful this island is or how the lifestyle of Kauai would suit us so perfectly. It was everything...

We stayed in the "Elvis" room for 5 nights in early January. Simon is a gracious host and has every need covered. Only a 50 foot walk to the ocean! Comfortable, clean room with a kitchen and washer and dryer. We will definitely stay here every time we visit Hanalei Bay.

We wanting something outside the standard resort and the Surfboard House was perfect. The coolest décor and beautiful spot with everything we needed provided. Appreciated having the kitchenette and being able to do a little cooking; absolutely loved walking to the bay and in to town. A very quiet spot but close to food, shopping and coffee! I sincerely hope...

Hanalei Surfboard House was the ideal location from which to explore the north shore during our first visit to beautiful Kauai. The Elvis Suite was quiet, comfortable, spotless, private and so wonderfully unique!! We enjoyed being integrated into the Hanalei Bay neighbourhood and the 3 minute walk to Waioli Beach, one of the nicest parts of the bay. Simon has...

I cannot recommend Hanalei Surfboard House enough for those who visit the north coast of Kauai, and who like stay in a place that feels like a home away from home. The marble-clad resorts are there for those who prefer them, but this is different, and for us, much better. Everything we needed was there, and if we needed help...

We chose the rainy season, and it was fantastic. We walked a few steps to the ocean and walked/swam in the rain. We played games, read and relaxed in this haven. It was quiet and charming and cozy. We stayed in the Elvis suite, we had a back private patio and front patio area that was perfect for early morning...

- Wonderfully appointed rooms, clearly a labor of love for the owner. Many period photos and keepsakes from his career in the music business. He signed several of my favorite bands including Thompson Twins and Radiohead. Adds up to a fascinating location. - Outside shower & laundry - Steps away from Pine Trees, excellent beach break for surfing - Full...

My new wife and I stayed in the "Love Shack" at the Hanalei Surfboard House. Kauai was most certainly the best part of our trip and the sleepy Hawaiian town of Hanalei was just an amazing place. The Surfboard House, which is just a short walk from the beautiful Hanalei Bay, was the ideal base for our Kauai adventure. The...

The Surfboard House is just what we were looking for. A little quirky (in the best way), more comfortable than a fancy hotel (great bed, shower, TV/AC), and an amazing location. Simon took fantastic care of us and directed us to just the right guides/hikes/restaurants with ease. If you are looking to enjoy the feeling of Hanalei, this is definitely...

My husband and I arrived in Kauai with no plans other than that we'd spend our first two nights at Hanalei Surfboard House. We're so glad we did! Simon (owner and host, who lives on the property) had everything set up for our arrival and the room was huge, with lots of interesting decor. When we met Simon later, he...
