Our house is about half way between Hanalei town/bay and Ke’e, the
beach at the end of the road (Haena Park) where the Na Pali coast
line and walking trail begins.
We're located 1/2 mile up Powerhouse road near Wainiha river
Less than four miles to the east is Hanalei Bay and Town. Except for
summer, when the north shore is placid, any surfer, boogie boarder
or body surfer, beginner to expert, can nearly always find a wave
somewhere along Hanalei Bay suitable for your skill level. Sitting on
your board, in the warm water, waiting for the right wave, your eyes
wander to the nearby steep green mountains with silver water falls.
Hanalei is a charming town, with an array of small shops including
natural food stores, art shops, surf shops, bike, surf, kayak and
snorkel rentals and restaurants. The twice weekly farmers market is
not to be missed for tropical fruits, vegetables, and artisan
One mile to the east is Lumahai Beach , which is actually 3 beaches
in various degrees of connectedness, depending on the sand build up.
Visually stunning, with black lava cliffs, white sand, blue ocean and
green jungle. Great for running on soft sand, then swimming in the
fresh water Lumahai River and playing in the waves where river meets
We are one half mile from Wainiha Bay , a quarter mile long sandy
beach, ideal for running or sprint workouts in the soft sand. On one
side is the fresh water Wainiha river, on the other side the ocean.
Swim in both. Rarely visited, because there are so many other beaches
nearby. Another nearby attraction is the Mediteranean Restaurant
voted the best resaurant on Kauai, and a charming coffee shop and art
store -- both less than one mile away.
From Wainiha to the west is four miles of continuous sandy beach,
ending at Ke’e. Sunsets from anywhere in the last two miles are
spectacular, with the Na Pali cliffs on the left, the ocean surf on
the right, and sun setting in the center.
