The Perfect North Shore Base!

Simply amazing. To start, if you are debating visiting the North Shore of Kauai during the summer, stop thinking and pull the trigger. The beaches are breathtaking, the most beautiful we have seen on all of the islands. Crystal clear turquoise water, an abundance of snorkeling options, and breathtaking views. This is the first time we have seen turtles, monk seals, and dolphins all in the same trip while just hanging out at the beach. We had Anini Beach and Secret Beach practically to ourselves. Tony’s place was immaculately clean. Everything is labeled, you can tell a lot of care and love is put into this property. We had everything we needed from chairs, to snorkeling gear, beach bag, cooler, and towels. Huge TV with all the Apps you could want. Bed was comfortable and there is a window AC unit in the bedroom which kept us cool at night. Lots of windows and fans. During the winter I’m sure this place stays very cool, it was a little toasty for us though and we needed the AC at night. The balcony view is great, not a beachfront balcony but you can see a sliver of the ocean with beautiful trees and plants along the way. The property was beautiful and well-maintained. Pool was much bigger than we gathered from the pictures, we didn’t use it but it did seem heated from dipping our toes. There is a 10-15 minute trail from the apartment down to the far end of Anini Beach, it is steep and this part of the beach is not really swimmable. Lots of coral though may be nice for snorkeling. Walk to Queens Bath is about 30-45 minutes (easy neighborhood walking until you hit the trail) and I didn’t find the trail down or up to be that difficult. There was some parking outside of Queens Bath but it was very limited. There is a shopping center about 10-15 minutes of neighborhood walking away, we always drove though, it’s a very short drive. They have a few restaurants, Food Land, and live music every night. Hanalei was about a 10 minute drive with more dining options, food trucks, shops, and beautiful views. Tony was very attentive and made it a point to check on us. This was an amazing vacation and I would not hesitate to book this property again. One small thing for us was the couch. Neither of us found it particularly comfortable for an extended period of time. Obviously, Kauai is not the place to sit on the couch and watch TV, and this would not stop us from booking again, just wanted to share our opinion. Mahalo for an amazing and memorable vacation!
