“The house is perfectly adequate”
Reviewed 21 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Old Style Beach House is perfectly adequate – just about everything you’d want and just about nothing that you wouldn’t want. It overlooks Hanalei Bay (and the house in front) – I spent a lot of time looking out the window and drinking coffee or sipping wine. Although you can see the ocean, the sound of the surf is just a soft, muddled roar.

The refrigerator is a little loud, as is the ceiling fan in the bedroom. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is shower only, but perfectly OK. There are quite a few condiments and spices and the like on hand. There is no air conditioning, but we didn’t miss it, and there are two ceiling fans. There are probably just enough electrical outlets, but they are awkwardly placed along the baseboard and too few to support your iPhone, iPad, and notebook computers all at the same time.

There’s a good-sized flat screen TV and very small sound system. There’s wi-fi and a landline telephone. There are two small twin beds in the living area, in addition to the big bed in the bedroom. There were adequate towels in the bathroom and a small collection of books in the hallway.

You are renting a smallish, standalone home that’s walking distance to Hanalei, maybe 0.6 miles. It does look out on Hanalei Bay, but is a half mile from the pavilion beach. The value proposition, what you get for what you’re paying, is OK – not great, but good enough. The Old Style Beach House is perfectly adequate. I’ve included a bunch of pictures.

“Perfect home I can only hope to return to one day"”

Went here with my boyfriend in January and it was ALL that we could have hoped for. Tons of room, great breezes and views from inside and out, walkable to town and the cute little bars and restaurants in the town, but in your own space and area. LOVED, would and hopefully will stay in again one day. Susanna was helpful and answered any questions or concerns. Enough space for four or five people if you go that route. The place was clean and was stocked with beach chairs, lounge chairs, a grill, charcoal, spices, towels everything. The greatest would be finishing an adventurous day and vegging with wine, cooking delicious Hawaiian fish and going to the ocean (in your backyard) and looking up at the stars. TAKE ME BACK TODAY. Closing my eyes and imaging I am there for the next few hours.

“It's heaven!”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

It's right on the beach surrounded by beautiful mountains and within walking distance for grocery shopping. The waves are visible from the dining room table - perfect for sipping coffee and enjoying the beauty of Kauai! We rarely drove! Our favorite route to go shopping was on the beach half of the way! We walked everyday. The beach is well monitored by life guards. This was important because the winter surf is so rough. There were two days with 30-40 foot waves in the middle of the bay -- very exciting! Be sure to visit The Dolphin either to buy fresh fish from their fish market in the back or to eat at their restaurant. The Harvest Market is an excellent health food store with organic produce and an excellent selection of healthy food items.

“magical cottage in heavenly Hanalei”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This was our first stay here but not on the island. I have to say we loved it the most. At first it was my husband, daughter and I, but my niece added-on last minute. So there were four of us and it was a little cozy, but totally comfortable. It is in a premium locale, just roll out of bed to your cute, well-equipped kitchen and big picture windows framing lovely Hanalei Bay and Middles surf break. Everything was perfect, although could have used a working lightbulb in the bedroom closet. The feel of the cottage was true to the Kauai vibe. Very close to walk to town for shopping, dining, entertainment. Can't wait to go back again.
