Maluhia Hanalei is a beautiful Hawaiian-style home just one block from the magnificent two-mile crescent beach at world-renowned Hanalei Bay.

The furnishings, amenities, and setting make it a wonderful vacation home from which to enjoy the wonders of Kauai's North Shore.

A two-minute walk from the house is magnificent Hanalei Bay and its famous, white-sand beach. A short stroll will bring you to quaint, historic, downtown Hanalei, with its wonderful array of restaurants, shops, and galleries. Within a ten-minute drive you will find numerous beautiful beaches and a huge variety of activities to keep you busy.

The house is at the end of a cul-de-sac, set back off the road, and down a long driveway on a wonderfully-landscaped quarter acre adjacent to a conservation area. The setting is lush, green, private, quiet, very secluded, and yet only a block to the beach and a five-minute walk into town. An ideal location.

Maluhia Hanalei is a single-family home which will accommodate up to 10 guests.

The house is beautifully decorated, fully equipped, and fully air-conditioned.. Larger groups will find that the whole house combines to make an ideal vacation home for up to 10. The individual suites give the smaller groups within the large one their own separate spaces and the upstairs has a very open, spacious floor plan with plenty of room for everyone to gather for meals and visiting. There is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen upstairs and a second kitchen downstairs in the Plumeria suite.

There are two outdoor showers, two gas grills, two washer/dryers. And a beach closet stocked with everything you will need for the the beach, including wagons to bring it all down the street to the beach.

Guests will enjoy the wonderful outdoor showers, the myriad birds in the trees, the wonderful sunrises and sunsets, the lush foliage and flowers everywhere, and the lovely tropical views from the extensive wrap around lanais and patios.

And quaint, historic downtown Hanalei with its shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes is a short stroll away.

The Hibiscus, 3BR, 2BA main house and the Plumeria 2BR garden suite can each be rented separately. See the Notes section on the rates page for more information.

There is an on-site property manager/caretaker who is available for any issues that may arise.

This property was exactly what we needed and it was perfect. We were two families of four with kids aged 5 to 20 months. We were walking distance to the village center, the farmers market and Hanalei bay was pretty much right across the street. About a 3 min walk. All the kids walked easily to the village center for shopping and dinner. We spent many afternoons in the beach and just enjoying paradise. The home was perfect for us to come together and enjoy relaxing meals together. The kitchen was well stocked and really the house was in general perfectly well stocked. All the beach things you could need; umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards, beach toys. The house had board games, books ect. They had a pack and play for my 20 month old and a high chair. This is the only house we will rent. It’s just perfect.

Our family rented the entire property for a week in September and enjoyed it although it was very hot at that time of year. Pros: * excellent location walking distance to the beach and town. * A quiet neighbourhood with plenty of water toys/chairs etc. * well maintained house and well furnished Cons: * older house that has not been updated. * Has a permanent renter on property (downstairs). * no air conditioning so can be very hot in summer months Thanks for the stay, we had a good time G

We rented both the upper and lower suites for our group of 8 and we all loved it. The home was very comfy and well equipped, and we especially loved being 2 blocks from the beach on Hanalei bay. Owner was great to deal with, everything went exactly according to plan. What a great trip, we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. A definite repeater.

I rented the property for my family group of 11people. My high expectations for our stay were met and exceeded. The photos in the listing are wonderful but they do not do justice to this beautiful and comfortable home. The location was ideal for beach visits and town activities. There were loads of beach items conveniently located and both apartments were well stocked with kitchen items, linens and towels. The grounds were gorgeous -positive proof that we truly were in Paradise. Communication with Marnie was easy and thoughtful. She texted me on our arrival day to alert us to a traffic issue. Luckily we were not affected by it. I cannot give a more wonderful recommendation to the Hanalei Palms. Consider yourself very lucky if you arrange a visit to this charming property.

A lovely house in a quiet neighborhood. Can walk to beach and to Hanalei for restaurants, grocery and ice cream. We enjoyed staying here and really appreciated having family in both the upstairs and downstairs unit at the same time.

We were delighted to stay in both units in this beautiful home. It’s about 100 yard walk to the beach. The house is at the end of a short lane which is at the end of a cul de sac. Like set in a beautiful lush jungle. The place was immaculate when we arrived. It was completely well equipped for our family of 8. The caretakers Jason and More were unobtrusive in their unit but always available for any questions. We’ll equipped kitchen. Well equipped beach gear. Well equipped games and video. All channel tv to watch NBA playoffs. Super fast wifi. If you want to be near the warm gentle waters of Hanalei Bay and stay in a five star large home, grab this place before someone else does.

We loved everything about the house...a perfect location for walking to the beach and to town, everything supplied so thoughtfully in the house, very clean and super well-equipped. Seven of us stayed for eleven glorious days and nights and hope to return. We all highly recommend Marney and her house!!!

The comment from our adult kids was simple: "when can we go back?" The house is better than I expected and I expected a lot. The neighborhood is wonderful and beautiful. Two blocks to Hanalei Bay and five blocks from downtown Hanalei. We walked everywhere, even during the rain. The beds were all comfortable, the furniture as nice as my own home. An avocado tree is in the back yard as well as limes. We will stay here again, hopefully next winter. Loved it very much.

We spent a glorious week here in February. This is the perfect house for family vacation. We had 13 people...including 3 grandchildren under the age of 8. We rented the upstairs and downstairs. I can say enough good things. The house is beautiful.It is on a quiet street . It is a short walk to the beach AND a short walk to town. Perfect for everyone to do their own thing if not enough cars to go around. The house was well stocked with beach supplies etc.. Marney is helpful. If you want to be in Hanalei (and who wouldn't),this is the place to be. I can't say enough good things about this property. Signed, So Grateful

Two weeks was not enough in this lovely place, oh, and the house was great, too! For a large family, ages 10 to 70, there was something for everyone. The house, island magic on stilts sits surrounded by a tropical paradise and beside a gurgling river. A wrap-around porch afforded all-day lounging and reading and for more active types, the proximity to beaches, shopping and hiking venues was perfect. Our family of cooks made use of all the carefully stocked cuboards and top quality appliances. No small thing were the great beds that made even sleep time enjoyable. Thank you for a wonderful first-time-in-Hawaii experience. Signed, Spoiled Forever

We spent seven nights at the house and had a simply amazing time. The house is lovely and spacious. We had all three suites for our group of 12 (which included three children) and felt that we had plenty of room the entire time. The ambience is relaxing and the house is well cared for and well stocked with everything you need for your vacation. And you can't beat the location - just a block and a half to the beach and a few extra blocks to the shops and restaurants Hanalei. We loved every second of our time there and can't wait to go back.

Wow! Great two weeks with our entire extended family of nine. Perfect house. Perfect location. Walk to everything you need and only a short drive to the most exotic locations in the world. Extremely comfortable accommodations. Very clean. Everything we could have possibly needed for cooking and recreation. Our favorite aspect...this is traditional Hawaii, not resort Florida with mountains and bigger waves. Easily the most laid back and friendly vacation spot ever. Our kids and grandkids want me to reserve it for the same time next year ASAP.

My family spent five delightful days at this property, renting both Plumeria and Hibiscus. We had such a wonderful time there and could see the house has had a lot of love and good times over the years. It has a really nice vibe! So glad to be able to experience that too. The house came equipped with everything you could imagine....we had all that we needed and then some. The owner and local contact people were very complaints. The location was also ideal, just a short walk to the beach and pier. We appreciated being on a quiet residential street in the middle of a tropical jungle! Also we had mostly good weather and were able to do many fun things with our family.

My family just returned from a weeks vacation at this beautiful home. We had a large group (10) of extended family consisting of 3 adult children with spouses/girlfriends and boyfriends and two grandchildren ages 1 and 3. This home couldn't have fit our needs better. The home was very clean and comfortable for a family. It had everything we needed for the beach, including chairs, boogie boards, beach toys and umbrellas! The home was light and airy upstairs with plenty of room to be together in a large open space. Our family enjoyed having both the upstairs and the downstairs plumeria apt. We spent most of our time together upstairs but it was nice for couples to have there own area for some away time. We had several dinners on the lanai and just enjoyed hanging out on the porch watching the wide variety of birds and the beautiful jungle landscape. It felt private and very tropical! The kitchen had everything we needed for food preparation with lots of counter space. We appreciated the highchair, pack and play, games and books when we were not at the beach. The beach truly is a minute stroll away and is breathtaking! The town of Hanalei is just a few blocks away and was a fun afternoon jaunt for shave ice or dinner. This house really fit the needs of everyone in our family! We all were sad to leave and look forward to another Hanalei adventure in the future. Thank you for the use of your home!

What a fabulous place with VERY close proximity to beautiful Hanalei Bay and Hanalei town. This was a long-planned family vacation and we rented the entire property - upstairs main house, downstairs 2-bdrm suite, and downstairs studio. It was perfect for our family of 14 (10 adults, 4 children) ranging in age from 4 months to 67 years. My entire family agreed that the location and amenities of this home couldn't be better. This was my first time renting a vacation home, and as other reviews have said, Marney was extremely responsive to all my inquiries. I would definitely recommend this property!!

A TripAdvisor Member “Beautiful home in a perfect location!” I am delighted to say that I wholeheartedly agree with all of the glowing reviews of this property. My husband and I brought our 4 adult children and spouses, along with our 13year old, 4year old, and 10 month old grandsons. There are hardly words to express how perfect the home was for our family. We rented the entire house, so there was plenty of privacy when desired, but the common areas more than comfortably accommodated our entire group. The owner has thoughtfully stocked the house with literally everything a family needs to live for a week. From high chair, to beach equipment to every conceivable kitchen appliance or tool, we wanted for nothing! The home is light and airy with a sense of total privacy and lush views from every window. The location could not be more ideal. It really is only a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to town. It offered us so many spontaneous moments to just drop everything and dash down to the beach for a sunrise or a sunset or a great rainbow. Hanalei is a magical place, and this home allows you to take full advantage of its beauty. We planned for our trip over several months, and Marney was at every turn, helpful and responsive to our questions and requests. Our family has rented several vacation homes, and this one, by far, is the best! We have beautiful memories to last a lifetime of this home in Hanal
