My wife and I were looking for a place that was out of the way where we could truely relax. We found it. The atmosphere is just what we were looking for. We were able to relax and leave the stress of the mainland behind us. We stayed there 12 days and wished we could have stayed longer.
This location is tops!. It is less than a block from the best beach on Kauai. We could walk to town for dinner each night if we wanted. Some days we didn't even need to use the car! The best parts of Kauai are really close. Once you visit the busy parts of the island you will be glad you stayed in Hanalei. Hanalei is small, but has enough resteraunts to meet most everyones needs.
The accomidations were just right. The room was very clean and with everything we needed. It doesn't have the big hotel extras, but it makes up for that in charm and quiet suroundings. The only thing to disturb you are the morning birds which are like nothing I have ever seen or heard before . There come little things which also make a big difference: snorkls & masks, boogie board, beach mats & towels, iPod dock, Bose radio, cable and WiFi.
The owner was very helpful and just a very down to earth nice guy. He will help you in any way he can and is full of fasinating stories. Be sure to check out the Slack Key Guitar Fridays and Sundays at the Community Center as well as the fantastic Farmers Market there on Saturday mornings.
We had such a great time here we are recommending it to all of our family and friends without hesitation. You can't go wrong at the Hanalei Surfboard House. This is one place I would absolutely go back to. We can't wait to return.
