The kitchen is well supplied with dishes, utensils, pots and pans, table, chairs, a double deep sink, refrigerator, a two gas burner stove, and toaster oven.

First off, the location is stellar, a mere block or so from the lovely beach of Hanalei Bay and a block or so from downtown Hanalei. The owner was responsive. The walls in the shower are nice, made of slate, and seem completely out of...More

About the neighbourhood
Equidistant and in walking distance from Hanalei Bay and/or town.
Located In a quiet cul-de-sac sandwiched between the main Kuhio two lane road and the little neighborhood road of Weke. Surf, snorkel or beach walk nearby.
Getting around
After you tire of walking to nearby Hanalei Bay and/or town you might want to hire a car.

Am a minimalist but a rental car is a good idea.
Car advised
How to get there
Hanalei is around a 45 minute drive north of Lihue.

From the main airport in Lihue, you will exit on Ahukini Rd. (#570). Turn right at the stop light and go North on Kapule Hwy. (#51). After a mile, it ends at a stop light, joining Hwy. 56 (Kuhio Hwy.).

From the airport to Hanalei is more or less an hour. You might find your best grocery shopping at the Safeway in Kapa'a about seven miles North.
Between mile markers 23 and 24 is the town of Kilauea and several miles later, at mile marker 28, the planned community of Princeville located on the bluffs.

After Princeville, the route number changes to 560 and you will drop down into the Hanalei Valley and be faced with a rusty one lane iron bridge. Cross the Hanalei River and bear right.

A mile later you will start coming into Hanalei....
