Description of the Wainiha vacation home rental
Buddha said when you can see 100 Shades of Green, you have truly reached heaven. This is the feeling you will have at this beautiful tropical paradise nestled in the Wainiha River Valley, near Hanalei. Lush vegetation - palm trees, banana trees, flowering ginger, jasmine, ti, ferns, even orchids surround you on the property. It's a lush jungle spot away from all the cares of the outside world, yet with all the amenities and comforts of a modern home. The house is new, open, comfortable and reflective of the sensibilities of its artist-owner. Indoors or out there is plenty of space and comfort and a mountain view from practically every room. The master suite upstairs is 600 sq. feet and has its own tub, shower, lanai, and even a fireplace. Downstairs are two more good sized bedrooms with new bamboo floors, separate full bath and a large open living room, complete kitchen and dining area. There is also a huge outdoor screened-in lanai with large dining table, hammock, sitting area, even Foosball. You'll want to spend most all your time there relaxing, enjoying the view of the valley ridge and the mountain, listening to the sounds of the valley - the river, birds, cricket-type insects, geckos, maybe roosters and a few other sounds, even the rain is wonderful here.
The house is situated six tenths of a mile up the beautiful Wainiha River valley. It is like a walk back in time to the way Kauai used to be. You'll want to walk up and down this road many a time at different times of day to enjoy the views and the vegetation of the valley. Two miles away are many beaches including Haena State Park & Tunnels Beach (of Bali Hai fame and great for snorkeling) and Lumahai Beach (wash that man right out of my hair). A little further is Hanalei Bay and the charming town of Hanalei and Ke'e Beach, the Kalalau trailhead and the NaPali coast. You will want to go to Ke'e almost every day for a swim and sunset. Swimming, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, kite surfing and more are in abundance on the lush North Shore. All the best beaches (Hideaways, Queens Bath, Anini, Secret, Kalihiwai, Larsens, Moloaa Bay and more) and spots to visit (Limahuli Gardens, Kalalau Trail, Princeville, etc.) are to my mind on the North Shore of Kauai, but certainly easy day trips can take you to sites a bit further including the other side of the island with Waimea Canyon being a top attraction.
