Haena Beach House Reviews

This property really is on a gorgeous beach that is positioned to give great privacy. The views are fantastic, the waves relaxing, the breeze was steady. The rooms were simple but just like the pictures. All family members liked their bed. The kitchen well supplied with the basics and a few extras (espresso machine didn't seem like a basic). The support was great. Check-in was easy and when small questions came up, the manager, Sophia, was right on top of everything. (And we are not routine VRBO users.) We felt well taken care of. Can definitely recommend.

We could not have enjoyed our stay more. The property is very uniquely situated, which leads to incredible views and sounds of the ocean throughout the house. The upstairs deck provides for an incredible star gazing deck at night, cocktail lounge at dinner, and coffee retreat at breakfast. The large hot tub on the lower deck was an added bonus. The house was very clean with an abundance of windows, comfortable beds, and amenities. The property management was very responsive and helpful at all times. We had absolutely no issues and would recommend this house to anyone.

We truly enjoyed this property. Every bit as beautiful as the pictures. Check in was easy and they even accommodated and early arrival. We had 3 couples and it was great that each couple had their own master suite. Would absolutely recommend.

This home, and the property management people, made our vacation a dream. The ocean is 75 feet from the deck. The kitchen is comfortable and well equipped. The breeze from the ocean keeps the living and bedrooms cool. The proximity of Hanlei and Princeville make shopping for fresh fish and vegetables very easy. I would HIGHLY recommend this home.

This place has it all! 1. Shout out to the property manager! She is on it and replies fast! Outstanding customer service! 2. View of the sunrise - you can’t beat it! 3. Property is nice. However, be careful when pulling out of the driveway, it’s on a blind curve! 4. There is no air conditioning. This home has window vents and screen doors. It’s nice in the morning and it stays warm until later in the evening. 5. Kitchen is awesome, it has almost everything you need. We did have a private chef out for 2 nights. He wasn’t able to use all the pans as some of the pans had been burned - we addressed this to the property manager. 6. Although the views are beautiful and the beach is usable, the currant is really strong and we were advised by locals not to swim here. There are several beaches each way that are calm around, so this was not a deterrent for our group.

Magical, all that we imagined. No house location like it. Plenty of rooms and options, multiple lanai’s-impeccably furnished. We’ll be back. Remember-it’s not a swimming beach right there, but sun rises, digging crabs, surf, rainbows and sand are just fine!

First impressions of this special place when you unlock the front door and walk straight into a picture straight out of heaven. The wall to wall picture windows were sparkling clear and the sound of the ocean was all around you! It’s hard to express just how close you are to a beautiful beach and it’s very secluded feeling even though you are just off the main highway. We enjoyed incredible sunrises every morning and just a short walk down what feels like your private beach and you can see the sunset too! The house itself has everything you need, very accessible and you really feel at home here. We cherished every moment of our week there and can’t wait to get back there!

My family and I were looking for a place to get away from everything, and Haena Beach House was perfect! The remote location is not for everyone, but having checked out the area before, it was ideal for a long peaceful vacation family stay, with a gorgeous beachfront property and a wonderful beach home that provided most everything you could want! We had a toddler with us, so we cooked most of our meals in the lovely kitchen, with daily fun and playing on the mostly private beach and evening cocktails before our family meal. It was everything we hoped for and more! Just come prepared and stop at the Costco or other big stores in Lihue before you make the long drive to Haena/Hanalei, because Princeville will be your next best option. Food options are limited, but the beaches and views are unbelievable! Well worth the drive!!! We will be back!

Our family loved staying at Haena! The views, especially the sunrises, were amazing; location was great; and loved being directly on the beach. The house was spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. Sophia was extremely helpful and put us at ease by making everything go smoothly. We’d definitely stay at Haena again!

Wow, this property is private, lovely and perfect. Lots of room for different groups to have their own space. You actually feel like you are on your own private island with the waves rolling in just outside your window - really ideal! The home is beautifully done, in good shape, clean and has everything you need. The house manager is excellent and wants to make your stay perfect! We had a fridge issue and she couldn't have taken it more seriously. Honestly she was awesome and the problem was handled immediately. Impressive. With a main master ocean suite on the first floor, there are 2 lovely ocean suites on the second floor as well (one with twins that can be pushed together). Then add to that, 2 lovely suites with their own entrances off the front deck and you can easily house 5 couples with plenty of area to retreat. While the 2 extra suites don't necessarily have waves crashing outside the window, they get a lovely ocean breeze. Long story short, everyone can have lovely accommodations! We had a private chef, Tony Braida, arranged by the management company and he was wonderful and accommodating to very specific and severe allergy issues. Not only was the food excellent, he was a kind, loving guy. The best! The house has great access to beaches, hikes and local restaurants. Distance to the airport and things like Costco are a bit unpredictable as there is only one main road but the privacy you gain by heading north is well worth what you give up to be in the heartbeat of the island. FYI, we didn't swim at the house due to a pretty rough ocean but with more protected beaches so close it was unnecessary. Big thumbs up on this one! .

The property exceeded our expectations. The pictures shown on VRBO do not do it justice. It was immaculate, well stocked, and those views of the beach were amazing! We loved the hot tub... weather was very windy and waves pretty rough, but some ventured into the surf. We enjoyed opening the window louvres throughout the house and listening to the sound of the surf, wind and rain. It is over an hour drive from Lihue airport, so plan accordingly. Our property manager, Sophia was extremely helpful with a couple of small issues we had. One constructive suggestion... please consider investing in some higher quality pans for cooking. I think these were Kirkland brand, and we had some issues with scorched food. Overall this was a wonderful vacation in paradise!

Excellent for adults, questionable for small children.

We renewed our vows at a private ceremony in Hanalei with our immediate family there. We stayed at this beautiful, stunning scenery home during this celebration time. Double rainbows almost every day. Everyone had plenty of space and we were all very comfortable. There is everything you will need just bring your food. We had a private chef come to the house to prepare our celebration dinner. Thanks to Sofie! We have been to Kauai 5 times and this home was by far the very best accommodation.

The house was great. We won't be returning to Hawaii until Covid is over as the SafeTravels-Hawaii program at the airport/entry is way overly restrictive. I could tell the story of what they did to us but you just would not believe it. It's too bad that just about everything is censored including even this review.



September 2021
Stunning location and lots of privacy. It was, however, difficult to deal with the road closures and hopefully that will be fixed soon.

This beach house is well equipped and nicely laid out for a 3 generation family. Sophia, the manager, is lovely and very responsive. However, the beach in front of the house is not safe for swimming and the bridge off Hanalei limits movement around Kawaii. I would not recommend the house until the bridge is complete.

The house is ideally situated if you want to hear the waves crashing on the beach throughout your stay. The house is comfortably furnished and the tropical breeze flows nicely through the common spaces when the doors and windows are open. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and found the house and adjacent beach very relaxing. The bathroom floor tiles need a deep cleaning as they are stained, but the house was otherwise spotless upon our arrival. We had a great experience!

Beautiful location on the beach if you can overlook (which we were able to do) being next to a public park with occasional campers and a homeless camper on the other side. The sleeping quarters were a perfect fit for our family of 10 (ages 6 to 70). However, the home is showing some wear, likely a common issue for a salt water environment. What the home is most in need of is a larger, main level, beachside deck. Three smaller decks do not make up for a missing larger deck. However, the covered garden side deck was exceptional and provided a very nice escape from the sun. A nice surprise at this property was the beach and water toys available for our use: beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, and sand toys for younger children. It is a great place to escape from ‘bustling’ Hanalei, yet close enough to enjoy the several restaurants Hanalei has to offer. Hopefully, the road will be repaired sooner than later as the convoy schedule was certainly a challenge for any adventuring Princeville side of Hanalei.

The interior of house was beautifully decorated and nestled on a private stunning and picturesque beach in Haena. The views from the three main bedrooms and living room were unreal - the sound of the ocean at night while sleeping was magical, I can still hear it in my head even though it’s been weeks since we’ve returned. Every hour of the day was the perfect photo opportunity. It was the perfect house for our family trip, and we would return to this house again. One small thing we didn’t realize is that two of the bedrooms were on the side of the house and didn’t have the same water views that you see in the photos that the three main bedrooms have. Not a big deal but good to know going into the trip so expectations are set. Also the beach at the house was not swimmable because waters were too rough in May with riptides. It wasn’t a big deal because tunnels beach is very close by with very calm waters which you can swim in. And this beach had these beautiful waves that were mesmerizing to watch and lull you into a tranquil state. Would recommend this house without hesitation.
