Hanalei Beach House Guest Comments
We absolutely loved staying at your house. It was so easy to just walk to the beach to go for an early morning run or quick surfing adventure. Your house is beautiful & views are fantastic. Plus, you have thought of everything...from a fully stocked kitchen to plenty of beach toys. We couldn't have asked for more for our honeymoon. We hope to be back & are so sad to be leaving back to Chicago. Thanks for everything!

What a beautiful little piece of Kauai Pie the Hanalei Beach House is!! This has been one of the nicest stays we have had on the island. Thank you for having all the necessities a warm house has to offer. Great views, beautiful beach front - perfect swimming!!

The colors you have so thoughtfully chosen for this house bring such warmth and coziness and not only that, they make everybody look great. Nanci, your artwork is wonderful! Being that if I am trying to become a more organized person, I certainly picked up some great tips here. I don't think I've ever been in such functional house. Loved it.
The last time we stayed in Kauai it was constant schlep. This time we never wanted to leave. My morning walks were incredible, seeing my husband Fred and son Leo fishing on the pier was awesome and swimming with my daughter Carly as we watched the rain come and go was like living in a dream and we were lucky the dream ended with a rainbow.
We feel so blessed to have found this place and hope we will get to come back sooner than later. Love and peace. ” Melanie, Fred, Carly and Leo

What a beautiful home! The upstairs balcony was the perfect place to relax with coffee or a drink. We really enjoyed our stay! Thanks!

Mahalo! Thank you so much for opening your home to us in the wonderful paradise of Kauai! We had a beautiful wedding ceremony at the end of the beach path that was everything we dreamed of and more.
This island is truly a paradise. What a wonderful place to spend our honeymoon and first vacation away from home. ” Cliff & Kelly

What a great place!!! We loved our stay, loved Kauai and we don't want to leave!
It was a special treat to be so close to such a great beach...and to watch our young boys (ages 2 & 4) learn to love the water.
Thank you! ” Carmen, Chris, Jasper & A.J.

Dear Nathan & Nanci
We loved the house and all of your thoughtful detailed touches. Your home is beautiful! We celebrated two birthdays here, swam with whales, enjoyed Bubba's, shaved ice, surfing pavilions, stand up paddling and of course our nightly beach bonfires. We are sad to go - back to 2 feet of snow!

Shame on you both for spoiling us this way. Our family may never enjoy staying in a hotel again after our fabulous stay in this home away from home.

I can't believe it's already over. I didn't realize that a week could go by so quickly. It's been an amazing week in a perfect beach setting. Golf at Poipu Bay, Wailea Muni & Princeville was incredible. The Priceville course showed why it's perennnially one of the best courses in the world. Worth every penny! As for the accommodations, simply perfect. Forty-nine steps to the beach...are you kidding? Thanks for letting us share in the fun of living on Hanalei Bay...even if it was only for an all-to-short week. All the best!
P.S. The outdoor shower rocks! ” Todd
Lovely house - great design - very thoughtfully done. Particularly liked the windows - the openings to the Hawaii version of paradise. Super location. Our most enjoyable trip to Kauai.

Nathan & Nanci,
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place with us! It is absolutely perfect! This was our 3rd 4th (!) visit to Kauai & it just keeps getting better. We picked a great time to leave Austin TX, too. It's been 100°+ since we left! We hope this is the first of many visits to your Beach House! ” Dean & Jody
Aqua blue water, great waves, white sands, emerald green vegetation. Can it get any better? Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home with us. We appreciate your details and craftsmanship, as we also have a vacation rental.
Hope you have a cool summer. It has been snowing in Sun Valley since we left :( Ya gotta love this place! :) ” Vance & Valerie

Dear Nathan & Nanci
We have loved being here and you created a great guest house and we will happily return some day.
We enjoyed one afternoon - the Slack Key Guitar concertr (Fridays & Sundays) - a delighful surprise at the community center. Loved Postcards and C.J.s for drinks. ANd lots of coffee at Java Kai.
But above all, we loved this bay with its magical view and the soud of the surf.
Thank you for creating this special home from which to treasure it all ” Ann & John
