Description

"Puanani," Hawaiian for beautiful flower, is a Hawaiian-style family home located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac within easy walking distance of Hanalei Bay and town. A large yard with plumeria, hibiscus, night-blooming jasmine and a lush garden with melodic songbirds can be enjoyed from the front and back covered lanais. Decorated with wicker and bamboo furniture and designed with open beam ceilings and natural cedar walls, the house has a spacious, comfortable feeling.

The crescent beach of Hanalei Bay is a short walk away for sunbathing, beach combing, seasonal swimming and spectacular sunsets. Take a stroll down the beach to the historic Hanalei pier to enjoy stunning views of the surrounding mountains and waterfalls.

Another short walk brings you to the quaint town of Hanalei, where numerous shops and restaurants are located along with a market and post office. While exploring this historic town, sample local favorites, shaved ice and smoothies.

Other north shore activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, hiking, horseback riding, tennis and golf.

I can't say enough about this charming little home in one of the most perfect spots in Hanalei.

Highly recommend, and would come back again and again and again - Tomorrow, if I could.

We absolutely adored everything about our stay at Puanani house. It was immaculate and comfortable in every way. The location was perfect - we could walk to the beach or town in minutes, but had a sense of quiet and peace away from the crowds. The kitchen was well set up and the grill very good, so we cooked in several times. Despite the rainy week it was a joy to be there. Reading on the lanai with the mountains moving in and out of the clouds was the perfect way to get out of the rain. I can't wait to come back.

We loved that it was a lovely, low key bungalow on a quiet street and near the beach & town. The garden was amazing. Also the BBQ was excellent. Comfy beds & cool breezes, lovely mountain views. So relaxing.

Perfect location to explore the north shore.The house was very comfortable and in a quiet cul de sac. We loved sleepy breakfasts on the deck watching and listening to the birds. Great garden.

The size and style of the home suited our needs perfectly. Within walking distance of the beach as well as the shops. Fully equipped kitchen, beach towels, chairs, etc. We didn't need to bring or buy anything. Wifi made life very easy. Our experience with the house and your agency was 100% positive. We will definitely recommend KVR to all our friends!

Mixed opinion about the property.<br/><br/>The good:<br/>- central location in Hanalei while being in a very quiet area<br/>- in walking distance to beach and town<br/>- wonderful outdoor area <br/>- clean <br/><br/>The not-so-good:<br/>- very outdated interior (price-value not balanced)<br/>- not well-insulated from outside noise (be prepared to wake up every day by 3 am thanks to the roosters that live outside) <br/>- neighbor complaining about noise from watching TV at reasonable volume in a rather rude way. We are seasoned travelers and very respectful towards locals wherever we go but this made us feel unwelcome. On the bright side another neighbor stopped by the next morning and apologized for her. <br/>- communication from rental agency was a bit too much - too many follow ups and reminders including download of unnecessary app<br/>- check in process very outdated where you have to pick up and drop off keys at actual agency office

Heavenly Puanani!

We loved this little house. Perfect vibe, and location, we absolutely cherished the garden. The furniture could be more comfortable, and it would have been nice to have shampoo and conditioner there when we arrived, but other than that, it was just PERFECT! The chickens will wake you up around 3,4,5,6, sometimes 1 am, but that's part of country living. This place is a GEM, and we will be back!! MAHALO!!

Had a wonderful time staying at Puanani. The house is not fancy, but it is perfect for Hanalei - beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, outdoor shower, geckos, beautiful flowers, and chickens. Excellent location - 2 blocks to beach, 2 blocks to "town".

I was very happy with Kauai vacation rental staff. Everyone was kind and helpful and provided needed information. The house was a delight !It was very clean and had everything one would need. The cushions on the deck desperately need replacing- they were very uncomfortable as they were super thin and worn. I know there was caution given to being quiet for the neighbors but the neighbors are the noisy ones. The driveway is used as a turn around throughout the day. I could not figure out why so many cars coming to the end of the street and then turning into driveway. I would recommend a chain or rope across the driveway. Others before me have commented on this as well. They make a lot of noise turning on the gravel. Wondered if it is intentional.

Just perfect

Lovely little house in a great location. Easy walk to the beach and town. House has everything you would need and the big front porch just tops it off. Great place to just relax, read or happy hour. Definitely a place to return to.
