About Hale Haena

Hale HaenaEnjoy your stay on Kauai in a custom built island luxury eco-friendly beach house surrounded by the natural beauty of Haena and steps to the ocean (30 seconds to the sand is our motto). Hale Haena is perfectly located to be close to world class beaches including ‘Tunnels’, a short drive to Hanalei and a two minute walk to one of the best restaurants in Kauai. Spend all day enjoying the activities of Kauai and come home to luxury and the relaxing sounds of the ocean. This beautifully designed three bedroom house with high ceilings blends quality craftsmanship with a tropical open feeling. The living room, kitchen and dining room all flow to ensure that no one is ever isolated from the heart of the home.

Beautiful Upstaiars Master Bedroom King Bed Mountain Views‘Hale Haena’ was designed with three bedrooms with on suite full bathrooms and outside shower. There are three deck lanai’s built to evoke an indoor/outdoor feeling while you enjoy the mountains views.

Our home is 100 paces from the back door to the sand. It is a privately deeded path, no crossing streets. You walk out the back door and go thru the open hedge and follow the zig-zag path down the hedge and 30 seconds you are on the beach. You don’t have to carry your beach chairs very far to see the ocean, feel the breezes and spray on your face, and the warmth of the sun!

My Favority Place in Front of the HouseYou can hear the ocean waves, feel the sea breezes from your lanai.

This is the high end district that is cottage homes on the beach. There are houses just a few doors down that rent for thousands a night.

Fall Asleep to the Sounds of the Ocean

Enjoy Your Stay – Local Beaches, Entertainment & Other Nearby Activities

There is something for everyone! Yes everyone! We think of everything, just bring yourself! Lots of books to plan your trip and board games when you are indoors.

Local Beaches

Helicopter View of House and BeachThe beach in front of Hale Haena is sandy with a beautiful coral bed (see the satellite picture). Remember the coral reef is alive, please do not walk on the reef.

If the waves are too high then just walk down around the bend heading west on the beach and you can snorkel at the famous Tunnels or Ke’e beach.

Every day will be different on the beach according to the tide and time of the year. Pay attention to surf and tide details as the island of Kauai can have dangerous waters as well.

All the beaches on the north shore have their own personalities. Visit them all.

I love the beach outside our house because it is so private and also for the sunrises and sunsets and sitting on our provided lawn chairs drinking a glass of wine. You will see local youth riding their horse right by the house and up the road. Everyone shares the road here (chickens, horses, cars, bikes). You will see Hawaiian monk seals out your door and an abundance of wildlife.

Easy access to Tunnels, Ke’e beach, Napali coast and Kalalau trail. No shuttles or permits to park needed, walk to park and or rent bicycles to decrease traffic on the north shore.

Kauai Books for Your Enjoyment

When you read through books about Kauai, you will find that the majority will focus on the N. shore exactly where this house is located.

Kauai Stories Life on the Garden Island Told by Kauais PeopleKauai Stories Life on the Garden Island told by Kauai’s people (Brown, 2012) describes Aloha is what your heart feels like when you share. Aloha is love, It’s the absence of fear. It’s a lifestyle, a way to live. Aloha is really two words: alo means to be in the presence of: ha is your breath. So aloha means taking the time to be present with someone, to take a deep breath, to play some music, to enjoy your life. What does this mean for you? We know you will enjoy your stay at Hale Haena and enjoy the breath of life, family, and the time you have with others!

Haena, Through the Eyes of the Ancestors book (Andrade, Carlos, 2009) tells the old ancient stories of Haena. Haena, defined as intense ha (breath), is the sun’s exhalation as it first appears in the morning on the eastern horizon and then again at the last expiration of light as it sets in the west. What does this mean for you staying at Hale Haena? The most fabulous sunrises and sunsets just steps out your door to the sand and ocean! It’s a place well deserving of the title aina momona, a fertile fruitful, sweet land of abundant springs and waters flowing from the mountains nearby sea. Haena still feels like the old Hawaii with its lush verdant backdrop of mountains surrounding Haena and the blues ocean you have ever seen.

Kauai Island Heritage book (Krauss, 1978) describes the mountain near our home as “the Bali Hai picture postcard image of the South Seas. Kauai comes closest to being everyone’s dream of a tropical paradise, The Garden Island.” The love story The South Pacific was filmed with the back drop of Bali Hai (Makana meaning gift or reward above Limahuli Valley).

Schuchter (2006) “Perfect Days on Kauai” book gives you examples of the perfect day in paradise and the real feel of Hawaii. Can you imagine crossing over one lane bridges and having unspoiled coastal beaches with some of the best reefs which are actually footsteps from your doorstep at our home? You can have this at Hale Haena.

An Island in the Turquoise Sea (Heintze, 2008) by Robertson Publishing describes how the island, the oldest of the Hawaiian islands though seemingly eternal, brings change, thru its trade winds, showers, clouds and surf and will offer the visitor new vistas, new life, and new beginnings. What does this mean for you? Every day is different in Haena and on the island and beach!

The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook (Doughty, 2013), describes the North Shore is as lush as any place on the planet. We are right by the famous South Pacific Bali Hi Mountain, (Hawaiian name Makana Peak), where the view is majestic and historic.
