Our stay in Hanalei was wonderful. We chose a small venue (vs a large hotel) because it always feels more comfortable to us, rather than being warehoused. Simon's house was indeed everything we had hoped for! It was very casual, comfortable, and intriguing! The room felt like home with all the kitchen and bath amenities, a nice large bed, and 3 seating areas - 1 inside and 2 outside. The back area was very private and had a BBQ. The grounds (remember this was only a single family home converted to the Owner's place upstairs, and 3 very comfortably-sized units downstairs) were simply delightful! There was a large variety of exotic (and rare) plants and garden art, all intertwined to create a very photographable and leisurely area. And, only a short block's walk to the beach! Simon was very hospitable and overall we had a perfect time!
