Kalani is a beautiful lodge on the North Shore. I felt so comfortable there like it was my own home. Bernie, Rachel and Marie are all so genuinely helpful and warming people. It is super clean and peaceful and the staff made it so welcoming and homely. I will continue to recommend Kalani and definitely stay again next time I'm...

We stayed in the Pacific Studio, Basically, its Bernie and Maria's original home converted for rental use and made us feel right at home. There were just 2 of us so we didn't need to use the second bedroom. I believe there is a fold out couch in the living room so it should comfortably hold 4-5 people. Beautifully furnished...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We at Kalani Hawaii are not your typical "place to stay." As a fusion of all accommodation styles we are a unique, boutique Private Lodging offering our guests the finest accommodations on the North Shore. What you will experience at Kalani Hawaii is an escape from the everyday rush, a peek through the palm trees to see how life exists when you're on island time. We offer once in a lifetime memories, beautiful vistas, short strolls to beaches, breathtaking sunsets, snorkeling, world class surfing, and much, much more. For the privacy of our guests we do not take walk-ins and are reservation only. This being the case, we do try our very best to book last minute accommodations when space is available. If you have any questions or would like to book a reservation, please contact us through our website. ... more   less
