"It truly felt like living in the middle of a rainforest - while not having to pay the price of many bug bites! The way the Suite was set up was just terrific for feeling like you were in the middle of nature, while being screened in. We absolutely loved our stay here and would love to come again in the future! Thank you for your hospitality!"
"A Hidden Gem"
Breathtaking, marvelous, hospitable, is how I would describe our experience! The accommodations were very clean and the grounds well maintained and picturesque. Beautiful plants, trees and other foliage are plentiful on the property. We wanted to stay on the north shore to experience the scenery and stunning nature Kauai has to offer. We were not disappointed!
This was the most pleasant surprise of our 18 day Hawaiian vacation. I wish we had spent the entire time here! The apartment we stayed at was immaculate, well appointed & constructed with superb attention to detail. There was nothing lacking! The owner dropped by and was extremely helpful and non-obtrusive. The property itself is gorgeous, greeting you daily with a chorus of tropical music and fabulous rainbows. Hanalei town is very close, but just far enough away. Beautiful beaches abound, as do very nice restaurants and shopping. What we most appreciated was the proximity to the remarkable Kalalau trail; this is a hiker's paradise. I would recommend this accommodation without hesitation; we felt as though we had discovered a well-kept secret!
"An outstanding house with spectacular views"
There were beautiful rainbows almost every day, sometimes doubles. The grounds of the house they found for us had wonderful trees and flowers and several ponds which are full of fish and visited by exotic birds. The house is within easy driving distance of some of Kauai's best beaches and the start of the world famous Kalalau trail. All in all it was a terrific experience which we would recommend to anyone. We are all looking forward to a return trip!
"Jungle get-away that's the real deal"
I just returned from a 2-night stay with my partner and would recommend this company, with no hesitation, to anyone who wants a travel experience that breaks through the generic offerings of hotels. I travel internationally a fair bit and when I woke up the first morning -- yes, to sounds of roosters and loud tropical birds -- I could also see the lush valley -- from our bed. The valley views reminded me of a stay in the Swiss Alps (except with a green rain forest version of mountains). The sounds and sights of the rain forest reminded me of stays I've had in Tanzania or several countries in Central America. And the fact that there were so many windows and doors allowed a beautiful breeze to make sleeping comfortable. I *loved* it. Beyond the feeling that you're immersed in nature, the manager has also thought of so many details that make traveling easier -- like laundry, beach chairs, etc and she was generous with all of them. And, the location is fantastic. You're minutes outside of Hanalei, we drove easily to the trailhead at Ke'e beach to hike, and we snorkeled at Tunnels like it was basically in our neighborhood. If you want to experience Hawaii, don't stay at a hotel - stay with these folks at naturalkauai.
Finally Found Our Home Away From Home
As soon as we arrived, we were taken back by the natural beauty that surrounds this home - not to mention the beauty of the home itself! Pictures cannot do it justice! The suite is exceptionally big - that of a nice 1-bedroom apartment. Now, can we talk about the HUGE lanai for a moment!? There is nothing more serene than this! In the end, we never wanted to leave. We told manager that we need to black out the dates of our anniversaries to come so that we can always stay here. Honestly, we really did feel like our home away from home! We can't wait to go back!
Amazing, we loved it here
It was a 'wow' moment when we opened the door, the view was spectacular. The living area had a feeling of inside/outside with the view of the valley from the curved lanai. We also loved the traditional decor with bamboo furniture and Hawaiian prints on the wall - it gave the place an added touch.
Wonderful Rain Forest Retreat!
If you're looking for fun & frolic with lively entertainment, PLEASE, look elsewhere. You'll hate it, and your neighbors probably will be annoyed...
When we walked in, it was so large that my girlfriend asked where the receptionist was so we could check in. I replied..."This IS our place." and her jaw dropped; she was totally blown away! This vacation was the first where rental properties were used, and due to availability I was forced to secure 2 separate rentals for the 10 day trip. After visiting many other places and seeing other rentals, I really wish I had simply stayed here the whole time!
