Hanalei Bay is a super place to relax on your vacation... or to get real active with surfing or hiking the rugged coastline trail. The Love Shack at Simon Potts' Surfboard House is perfectly located for enjoying the laid-back town of Hanalei and being only a couple hundred yard walk to the beautiful beach!
The Surfboard House includes 2 rooms in the main house and a separate building that is the Love Shack. We were in the Love Shack and enjoyed plenty of privacy in this very roomy suite that is decorated in a very fun, quirky style. There are a myriad of little design touches like the cool tiles in the bathroom made up of dice and dominoes, the soundproofing (it is the Love Shack after all), the surround sound system to enjoy, the private patio with grill and outdoor shower...
And, I would guess that soon there will be a brand new gas grill to enjoy ;-)
Sadly, we did not get to spend much time getting to know Simon. The little bit that we did talk with him we thoroughly enjoyed and he seems like lots of fun to hang out with. I think it was mostly due to staying in the separate love shack that we didn't talk with him as much as other guests comment on.
Even though we were given the larger Love Shack at the same rate as the other rooms it was a little expensive. But, considering the great location so close to the beach and how much all the other accomodations in the Hanalei area seem to run it's worth it.
