Location was good, 5 minute walk to Hanalei beach, 10 minutes to town. Had good beach supplies, wagon was really helpful, sand toys, boogie boards, chairs, etc. Had snorkeling gear, but figure most will rent in town, since that's pretty cheap to do. Contacted Ann with question and she called me back in less than five minutes. Kids had fun on wrap around porch. Thought yard would be better, so kids could play in it. Really liked the outdoor shower, I looked forward to it each day. Wish it were cooler in the house. Porch to side of kitchen was always cool, wish beds were out there. Kitchen is nice, everything we needed was provided. Washer and dryer are always a bonus. Wish there were a little more room to socialize downstairs. Kids would go upstairs, but with a little one under two, we constantly had to beware of steps. Plenty of games to choose from. Would consider staying again, although no refund policy might discourage us, as we intend to book next year's visit soon and making plans a year in advance is always a little tricky.
We loved this property. The house had everything we needed, with a beautiful kitchen and a fantastic lanai. Quiet neighborhood and a short walk to Hanalai Bay where we swam and saw fantastic sunsets and into town where we found some great restaurants and shopping. The hosts provided so much helpful information about the house and the area. Some in our group struggled with the lack of air conditioning in the house - even with the abundance of fans that were provided and the breeze, it was sometimes uncomfortably hot for a few of us. But overall, I would highly recommend this wonderful house if you're going to be in the Hanalai Bay area.
A home full of memories and care. We treated it like our own- and left some beautiful memories. highly recommend.
Nice home in Hanalei for a family or group. The 2nd story living area has a nice breeze. Walking to the beach and pier area is a plus. Friendly owner with good communication.
The house was spacious and the wrap-around porch provided tons of outdoor space even when it was pouring rain. The kitchen was very well stocked with pots&pans, cutlery, and other appliances including the best little ice maker in the world.
Despite being almost surrounded be neighbors the house felt very private even out on the porch. The Hanalei strip is a 5-10 min walk and you can be on the beach in 2 mins. Sunsets on the beach, sunrise lighting up the cascades on Mt. Waialeale - we can't wait to come back!
The home was great and just as described on the website. The house is blocks from the beach. Ann was a wonderful host who took very good care of us and even brought us extra towels. Would hope to visit again soon!.
Our stay at this home was just wonderful. The house is lovely - extremely comfortable, well stocked and clean. The location is perfect - quick walk to the beach and many restaurants. We had a wonderful time and hope to stay there again next year. Ann was great - very communicative and made the whole process so easy. Thank you so much!
The five of us (two couples and one teen) loved our stay in Hanalei. We had plenty of space to spread out and especially enjoyed the outdoor lanai. The kitchen was well appointed and the grill was clean and ready to use. It was rainy but the house is designed perfectly to keep you dry even on the lanais in a downpour (we would would know!). We learned that roosters start crowing hours before sunrise, part of the charm of Hanalei, bring ear plugs if this will bother you. The loft area is not full height so we did not really use that space. We walked from the house to town, beach and the pier. Found this location more convenient for accessing stores/restaurants than our later stay in Poipu.
Our stay was great! Our favorite house in Hanalei by far. Ann was ultra kind and responsive. Thank you Ann. We will be back!
Awesome place to stay. Close to everything. Clean and spacious. Owner is very helpful and communicative
Simple check in process, straightforward property. Very nice, very clean. Walking distance to beach and restaurants/shopping
We liked the open floor plan and the spacious lanais. There was plenty of room for six of us. The house is in a great location, just a couple of block to walk to the beach or to Hanalei shops. The host, Ann, was extremely accommodating, helpful, and easy to reach. Unfortunately it was pretty rainy during our stay, but I can't hold that against the house or the host. Luckily there is a carport and spacious lanais all around!
This is our 3rd time renting this particular property in Hanalei. As always the entire stay was perfect! The house is comfortable, clean and spacious enough for family getaways. Ann always communicates well and is prompt in responding to msgs. We will be renting a 4th time if it's available 😁
The house was clean and a short walk to the beach. The host was very responsive. It was a pleasure to stay here.
Ann was delightful to work with. Responded almost immediately. Home was very well decorated, clean and located centrally. The landscaping was exquisite. l will return to her home anytime.
Great location with view of waterfall, mountain and lots of greenery. Easy walk to the beach. Quiet cul-de-sac. Short walk to town. Lovely, fully stocked house.
This property was perfect for our family with ages ranging from one to sixty. It's tucked back off the busiest streets but centrally located for walking to all beaches, restaurants and shops. The house has several spacious common areas for games and gathering. We spent two days on the Kalalau Trail which was easy to get to using the park and ride service located in right in the bay. Ann was a fantastic host and so helpful. The days we spent here were the best part of our trip. We can't wait to come back!
Excellent location, everything we needed for 6 adults and two four year olds. 5 minutes from the beach and ten minutes to town.
Lots of room & lovely veranda made our time at the house great.
We were so fortunate to be able to reserve and stay in this wonderful Holloway property. If you’re familiar with Hanalei Bay they’re only limited options close to the beach . Ann‘s property is easy walking distance to the spectacular beach as well as to town. The house itself is large extremely private and quiet with a big wraparound lanai, fully stocked and functional kitchen, comfortable beds beach equipment the list goes on and on. If you are extremely heat sensitive keep in mind the place does not have air-conditioning but using the ample fans provided it wasn’t an issue for us. I would feel lucky to stay in this house again. The owners are great people invested in the community rather than the frequent abstentia owners. If you’re looking to stay in Hanalei and the house is available Also reasonably priced considering what you get. Aloha
There are 2 bathrooms and an outdoor shower - not 3 bathrooms.
Wonderful property and great host!
Everything was perfect and the house was even better in person than in the photos. The lanai was so lovely and great location for walking to beach and-or town! We will return!
We live on Kauai, but love to do summer staycations in Hanalei and this is our favorite place to stay! Spacious, well equipped kitchen. Love the back deck outdoor seating area. Tucked back in a very private spot but short walking distance to Hanalei Bay and town.
Beds are comfy. Only 2 baths, but having the wonderful outdoor shower alleviates waiting for your turn in the inside shared bath.
We plan to book this home every summer, Mahalo to Ann!
This house exceeded our expectations. It was so conveniently located to the town and beach. The host has thought out every detail for her guest and is so helpful!
This was the perfect place for our family vacation of 7 adults. The house is well laid out, clean and freshly decorated , comfortable beds and very well equipped. The location is great and yet we felt very private. I loved the mountain views and tropical foliage. We spent most of our evenings relaxing together on the expansive lanai. Absolutely would return to this is exact rental on future Kauai trips!
Beautiful place - so close to the beach. Ann was great to work with. Microwave randomly stopped working and she had a new one for us by the time we got back from the beach the next day.
Our stay was absolutely perfect. The home has everything you need for a wonderful vacation and Anne is extremely kind and easy to work with.
We were amazed when we drove up and saw the home! Spacious, wrap around deck, a tropical oasis. The home is lovely and we had all we need to snorkel, sit at the beach and great suggestions of where to go. Quiet and pleasant, it was perfect for our family. We walked to the Village of Hanalei, to the beach and a quick trip to Princeville if we wanted. Highly recommend!
This property was the perfect home for my family to stay at while vacationing in Hanalei for a week for a friends wedding. The house was perfect with plenty of space for everyone, amenities for the beach and perfect views of some of the many Kauai waterfalls from the wrap around porch and lanai! It’s also located in a great location and literally minutes walk to the beach, as well as the Main Street where the bars, restaurants and shops are. We can’t wait to come back and stay again. Thanks for sharing your home with us, Ann and family!
Very nice property in a quiet neighborhood in one of the best locations. The beach and town are only a short walk away. Host communication was great and provided a lot of insight for our trip. We hope to return in the future.
We toured the island for four days and really enjoyed this property. Very spacious. Very comfortable. A comfortable walk to the beach. I highly recommend this house.
A well equipped and well located property
Everything was perfect! Was told the dishwasher was not going to be working, but it was fixed when we arrived. Thank you very much for making that happen for us Ann! I could not have asked for a better way to celebrate my 50th birthday, except maybe a couple bikes on site. Stoked!!
Walking distance to beach and shops. Lots of amenities, including towels and beach gear. Even had umbrellas for the frequent(!) rain.
Beautiful home close to the beach. Quiet private location. Some of the appliances are getting a little dated. Ann the owner is very friendly and responsive. Covered decks make for great out door relaxation. I would stay here again.
This was the perfect property for our family vacation. It is so close to the most beautiful beach. The property had everything we could want in the kitchen and for the beach. Can't wait to come back.
This was a beautiful property in the perfect location. My wife and I and our good friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A very nice touch was the bag of Starbuck coffee beans, the beach chairs, boogie boards and oversized beach towels. The day spent on the lanai was a nice break from the beach activities. The neighbors were nice and it's in a great location, close to everything. The weather was great and we loved it. Ann was a great host and very helpful with check in and check out times. Highly recommended!
We stayed (6 people) at the property from Jan 3rd through Jan 13th 2022 and everything was impeccable. Ann was very responsive and helpful. The property is a 2 minute walk from the beach and away from the main road. Very quiet. I highly recommend this rental. Thank you Ann for all your help!
It was like staying at a soothing retreat. I though we would miss being right on the water, but the tranquility of the setting and views more than made up for it. As for the water, it was a 5 minute walk away.
What a beautiful house with an incredible view and close proximity to the beach and local shops and restaurants. We enjoyed our time out on the deck and inside playing cards. We all now want our own outdoor shower! We had the master bedroom which had a huge double head shower. Our daughter.stayed in the loft and had an incredible view.
We were delighted by the geckos and the well provisioned home. Thank you Ann for our memorable and incredible stay! ❤
We had great weather snd we also had heavy rains. It is Kauai! The house is magical during the rain with lots of covered area to lounge snd read. At one time we could see 10 waterfalls from the porch. Ann has thought of every amenity. We wanted for nothing.
Easy straight forward process.
This well appointed large home was extremely comfortable, and very well equipped with anything and everything we could have possibly needed, from shampoo and body wash to lovely hand soap in the kitchen. Appreciated the “left behind” spices and condiments. Our only disappointment was our stay was too short, I could have stayed there for a month, if only….
We could not have picked a more perfect place to stay. A few minutes walk to either the beach or downtown from her lovely home made the location very convenient. The lanai was a perfect spot for meals, reading and card games during the afternoon. Ann is a wonderful host. I could not recommend this property more highly.
This house was beautiful and had plenty of space... the loft living area, plus the living room, plus the outdoor living space and additional outdoor seating areas (not to mention KAUAI outside) gave plenty of room to spread out and the kids loved playing hide and seek.

Easy access to beach and town. Spacious house with great lanai
Our stay at Hanalei Palms was even better than I had hoped. The home is spacious, beautiful, clean, and well-maintained. The location is ideal - easy walking distance to quaint Hanalei town and beach access with lifeguards and facilities. We had a group of seven, ranging in age from 12 to 63, and we all had spaces to gather or have quiet time alone. Thank you for sharing your exquisite home with us!
Our family of 5 had an amazing stay here. If you have never been to Hanalei...it's a MUST! The town is the cutest and the beach is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. This home is in the best location....3 minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to the town. The lanai is enormous...a beautiful and peaceful place to eat, drink or just relax. We appreciated having access to beach chairs and boogie boards...it was super convenient and we used them everyday. Ana was very responsive and extremely sweet.
This was our first trip to Kauai...we will definitely be back and will definitely stay here again!
A great house for us. Close to the beach and town. House set up really well with everything we needed. Communicating with Ann was an absolute joy. She got back to me right away about everything. We recommend the house for sure.
The house was just as advertised. Owner was very responsive to needs. The location was perfect.
We couldn’t be happier with the stay. The big deck on the house worked wonderfully for early mornings and evening’s.
This was our second time staying at Hanalei Palms and it was wonderful. Ann was quick with communication and the house/kitchen is stocked with everything you might need. Beautiful wrap around deck with lots of outdoor seating, quite neighborhood, very clean, large capacity washer and drier and it’s a short walk to the beach and town. We will definitely be back. Thanks Ann!
Ann, the owner, is wonderful and the place was paradise
