My husband and I stayed in the "Love Shack" suite for four days of our honeymoon in October 2011. We feel fortunate to have discovered this small paradise within a paradise. If you can imagine a place that is thoughtfully designed, where needs are anticipated and fulfilled, and exudes a creative and funky vibe -- this is that place. Simon...

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary for 8 glorious days in the Cowgirl Suite. We were impressed from the moment we parked our car, and set foot into the magical gates...... We followed a cute welcome sign with our names on it to our suite....and it was open and waiting for us, complete with thoughtful touches and...

Simon has really made this place a warm, hospitable ... work of art:) The Love Shack is so funky and filled with incredible memorabilia - it took us a few hours just to check out all the cool stuff in this suite. Outside shower is awesome, and BBQ is tops. The location is great, and Hanalei itself is a very...

My husband and I stayed at the Hanalei Surfboard House for 1 week in July 2011, during a 10 day stay on the island for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We wish we would of stayed there the entire trip, but plans took us down to the south end of the island for the last 3 days, which was nice,...

Never having been to Kauai before, we didn't know what to expect regarding accommodations, so Trip Advisor came to my rescue again and as usual, we were not disappointed. The house was private, comfortable,fun, and quiet. Simon is a wonderful host and thought of everything you could need for the beach, a picnic,a bbq, and entertainment (my husband is an...

Ditto to all the excellent reviews of the Hanalei Surfboard House. My husband and I took our 17 year old son for a graduation/Christmas present and had the best time EVER! My son was in a surfer's paradise. We had the Elvis room and my son had the honor of residing in the airstream trailer for the week. Simon truly...

The Hanalei Surfboard House is a stunning achievement in vacation lodging ambience. Through art, artifice, or sheer alchemy, Simon conjures a magical atmosphere: a unique heady blend of sensuous luxury and cozy familiarity. A tropical paradise as comfortable as fleece-lined flip-flops. Time ceases to exist; you feel as if you have been here before, or that you actually live here....

We had wanted our own little private beach cottage 'near but far' from Hanalei town, close to surf, with beautiful artful gardens magical and enchanting as the paradise of Kauai ....and we found so much more than we could have ever imagined at the Hanalei Surfboard House, what a lucky find! You are not left wanting or needing for anything,...

My partner and I were lucky enough to get into the Hanalei Surfboard House's Love Shack at the last second becuase of a cancellation. Boy are we lucky. The location is as good as it gets, being right in the middle of Hanalei Bay. It's an easy walk to any of the shops and restaurants in town and so close...

I stayed here with my girlfriend this August for the second leg of my Hawaii trip following a friend's wedding in Honolulu. Kauai was the destination we chose because we wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, and felt like Hanalei would be the perfect place. I read about the Hanalei Surfboard House here, and decided...
