Hanalei Bay is wonderful, and the Surfboard House is a great way to experience it. We walked everywhere we wanted within the little town. Simon was very welcoming, but then pretty much left us to our own devices, which was fine. The landscape design could be described as bowlingball-surfboard-gothic, or "English Eccentric". We stayed in the Elvis room, which suited us well. This is not as good a deal as Frommer's used to suggest - it's not cheap by any means, and the one-time cleaning charge seems a bit chintzy after paying about $300 per night for a full seven nights! One note for travellers: don't be in a hurry on Kauai. Take it slow, take it easy, enjoy.
