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...

My husband and I loved our stay at the Hanalei Surfboard House. We visited Kauai on our honeymoon this fall and stayed in the Cowgirl Suite. The Surfboard House location was perfect - situated on a quiet residential street, tucked just between the beach and the town of Hanalei. We loved Hanalei itself - there was lots to do, see...

Not just a great space but a thoroughly delightful experience. An eclectic collection of furnishings in a comfortable space and an exotic garden, so close to the beach and those fantastic Hanalei Bay sunsets and only a few minutes walk to the village. From our first enquiry through to departure our hosts ensured that every aspect of our stay exceeded...

I have spent several weeks contemplating how and what to convey in my review of the Surfboard House. The many reviews I read before making my selection were extremely helpful and solidified my decision to stay there, but there in an intangible about the place that is hard to convey in words. First of all congratulations for planning on staying...

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Simon's stylishy chic Surfboard House in Hanalei for 5 evenings ~ for our wedding anniversary and my 50th birthday celebration.
