“Excellent Location and Room”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

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.

Where do I start?! We stayed at the Surfboard House for just over a week, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Hanalei, maybe even Kauai. The House is seconds from the beach, and by beach I mean Hanalei Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen. The House manager Simon is the perfect host, and he has kitted out the accommodation suites with everything you need and more. The style and chic of the suite we stayed in (The Cowgirl Suite) was lovely, and made the place feel even more homely. Cant recommend this place enough for anyone wanting to visit Hanalei for a relaxing, stress-free, and welcoming stay in an amazing setting.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Cowgirl suite which was beautiful and perfect, but both suites are identical I thin...

I stayed here for 4 days and felt so relaxed. The attention was like none other, such quality service cannot be found at any other hotel. Simon the owner and also resident at the surfboard house went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed. This place has what you need and more to have a good time. There was a variety of sports equipment, snorkel gear, boogie boards, bikes, all the works. I highly recommend you stay here when you visit you wont regret it. Thank you simon and your staff i had a lovely time.

Room Tip: Elvis room was where i stayed cutest decor

We visited for 1 week. We chose the Surfboard House based on other reviews on TA. What an amazing place to stay! Simon is a wonderful host who having travelled the world knows exactly what we all want and need when it comes to accommodation. He has thought of every little detail offering high quality fittings and facilities. Just book now with total confidence your holiday accommodation will be fantastic. As everyone else has also mentioned -Simon is a pretty cool guy who has many facinating stories to tell.

My wife and I just got back from seven nights at the Surfboard House and we were totally blown away. The Loveshack had everything we needed for our stay (chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, private patio w/ outdoor patio, kitchen, satellite tv, etc.) and Simon was always available to help with recommendations/advice. He has done such a great job building this oasis, which has all the comforts of a modern residence but somehow feels out of another time. We stayed at a nearby resort for several nights and traveled to towns all over Kauai and I can say with confidence that we won't consider staying anywhere but Hanalei Bay in the future.

We stayed here based on a recommendation from friends. What a super recommendation! This was the perfect place for us to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary!

It was a VERY short walk from the Surfboard House to the gorgeous beach! Our studio was immaculately clean and the owner had clearly thought of everything that we might need! The attention to detail was even apparent in the adorable decor of our "Cowgirl" room.

We will definitely return for many more memorable anniversary trips!

HIGHLY recommended!

Just returned from a seven day stay at the Surfboard House. What an incredible location - one minute walk to surfing Hanalei Bay and a 10 minute walk to Tahiti Nui and the Hanalei Dolphin! Simon is the consummate host and has done a fabulous job in creating a romantic, unique and inviting place to spend your time in Hanalei. The gardens around the home are immaculate. Rooms offer great privacy and the lanai is so peaceful. If this place is available you should reserve it immediately. As you can see from the other reviews on the site, you will not be disappointed.
