Our family of four stayed at the Hanalei Surfboard House and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Located within walking distance of the charming surf town of Hanalei and just steps from a world class beach, the Surfboard House is ideally situated to experience the picturesque north shore of Kauai. We stayed in the Elvis and Cowgirl suites,... More

This is the 2nd stay in the fabulous Elvis suite at the Hanalei Surfboard House. We love staying here, it is just the perfect place to feel at home in an ideal location. It is close enough to walk to the beach at any moment, without the noise and traffic of staying oceanfront. Everything we needed is in the little... More

My husband and I were recently blessed with a week long stay at the HSH. We could not have asked for a better place to hang our hats. Everything we could want in terms of practical concerns and comfort was in place upon our arrival. Clearly, a lot of thought and consideration has gone into the creation of this exceptional... More

We had a wonderful time. Love Hanalei. Wish we could have stayed longer. The Surfboard House was in a great location to both the beach and town. The property is perfect and we will plan to be back as soon as possible.

We have been to Kauai many times and Hanalei is our favorite spot to stay as it's closest to our favorite hikes and we just fell in love with the little town. The last time we stayed in Hanalei it was with a group and we rented a house, which was not financially feasible with just the two of us.... More

The Hanalei Surfboard House is simply the best, nicest, coolest, most comfortable place to stay on the north shore. Located with a 3 minute walk to Pine Trees on Hanalei Bay and a 10 minute walk to the center of town, it is really a pearl in Hanalei. Your host, Simon, has paid attention to the smallest details in making... More

Hubs and I wrapped up our trip to Kauai with 4 nights in the Cowgirl Suite - it's a gem. Everything in the unit has it's place- it is very well organized and has a lot of charm with doo-dads sprinkled throughout the pad decorating it will a little funk. Pool balls in the shower, old CDs, DVDs, lots of... More

If you're reading this then you already want to go to Hanalei. It's a very beautiful place. In my dreams i run away to Hanalei.

Really enjoyed staying here; great location; very convenient to Hanalei and walking distance to a very good beach. Would recommend as a nice alternative to a hotel, with much more character and the owner (Simon's) interesting storytelling.

What a magical island full of beauty at every turn, completely takes your breath away. We stayed in the Surfboard House for 3 weeks, it was extremely comfortable, quiet, full of beautiful treasures that the owner has collected through his work in the music business and on the island. We had a wonderful room, the love shack, with everything you... More
