A Really Woderful Place To Relax
A guest from Santa Cruz, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 The house was Wonderful. Our whole family enjoyed the space relaxing,cooking,and playing games. We all agree it was the Best so far. Wish I was still there. Only downside was a couple of nights of loud barking dogs .
A guest from TENINO, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 The Kauai Tree House was a great place to stay in Kauai. This is also the best location in Kauai as you are close to Hanalei and some of the best beaches on the island. We would definitely stay here again!
A guest from Vacaville, California recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2016 We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this rental home. The property was clean and well stocked with everything needed to live day to day. We really had no interaction with the property manager except when we arrived a little before check in and needed help to access the home. The property is very private and lush with tropical foliage. All week we couldn't believe how lucky we were to be able to call this lovely home ours for a week. Thank you to the property managers for providing us such a fantastic place to call home!
Kurt L. from San Mateo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 Fantastic time in Kauai. Always the absolute best island. Tree house next to the river. More remote than anticipated, heavy rains flooded the highway and the parking area, but not a problem. Propane was empty so no BBQ. Could have used more kitchen utensils and cook ware, but we made due.
A guest from saamichton, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2016 This home in the trees is ideal for people looking to escape the resort areas and to experience the ambiance of a natural location. There are many beautiful beaches a short drive away. Our vacation here was a peaceful get away that we thoroughly enjoyed.
Property Manager Response: Response from RE/MAX Kauai Aloha and Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay at Kauai Tree House. We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed the property, and location.
Kitty B. from Amarillo, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in December, 2015 It was very clean. Nice washer and dryer. We enjoyed our stay. We would stay again if we go back for a visit. 2 thumbs up
Property Manager Response: Response from RE/MAX Kauai Thank you for writing such a nice review regarding your recent stay at Kauai Tree House. The team works very hard to exceed each guest?s expectations and it is a true pleasure to hear how much you enjoyed yourself!
Nancy S. from Seal Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 The Kauai Tree House was just how it was described and perfect for our holiday! Would request to have beach chairs and other beach toys available as there were none. There was an occasional barking from the dogs nearby but tolerable. I would also request that the "activity" book be updated and made easier to read. Although the concierge service provided through the property manager was great and we used them to book a few services. Also, suggest that you don't arrive after dark on your first visit as it is difficult to find - although that is part of it's charm. All together it was a fantastic location!!
Jennifer P. from Bakersfield, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2015 It was a great place to stay ! I didn't like the bugs and we met a cane spider in the bathroom lol but it was beautiful
Property Manager Response: Response from RE/MAX Kauai Mahalo for writing a nice review regarding your recent stay at Kauai Tree House. The team works very hard to exceed each guest?s expectations and it is a true pleasure to hear how much you enjoyed yourself!
We commiserate with you regarding the pests found here on the Island, but prefer those over what you find in the mainland. =)
Kathie K. from Felton, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in July, 2015 We recently spent 3 weeks in this beautiful home nestled alongside the river and a very short walk to the beach. We loved being so close to Hanalei, our favorite place in Hawaii, as well as being in nature. For those that love to be away from the tourist traps, this place is perfect. Had fun floating down the river to the beach, listening to the birds singing day and night, and enjoying the immaculate property. The property was very clean and well-maintained. We were celebrating a 60th and 65th birthday with friends and family who came and went during our 3 week stay. They all loved it as well. The drawbacks were 1) the bugs and mosquitoes (you will need to drench yourself in bug spray); 2) the pack of barking dogs who gave us a daily concert between 6 to 9 PM every night for three weeks; 3) the sensation of being in an earthquake whenever anyone walks across the floor (the house is high above the ground on stilts and shakes quite a bit, but you do get used to it after a few days). REMAX in Princeton was very slow to respond to requests (freezer wasn't working, no smoke detectors which are needed as there is only one exit from the house), but they did eventually respond after a week and a half. The house was large enough for 7 of us, with plenty of space for all. Your cell phones will not work here, except for texting, but wifi was consistent. We switched to the web based Viber and were able to make calls to folks back home. Overall, it was a terrific place to stay, but a little too many drawbacks for us to book it again--especially the swarms of mosquitoes and bugs.
Lori C. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 We have stayed in may house rental on Oahu & Kauai and this one is on our top 3! The stream almost beneath was was amazing to listen to along with the various birds etc. The home is very well kept and quite spacious. The enclosed lanai was a favorite for our family as well as all of the personal lanai's for each bedroom. The one thing that we noticed that other people didn't like were the barking dogs at night, we understood that they are hunting dogs and it wasn't all night or if it was raining. We would go back!
Clint R. from Denver, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 We visited the Kauai Tree House and stayed 5 days as we were attending a wedding in Hanalei. The location of the tree house doesn't show up properly on Google or Apple Maps, which is a bit of a problem and led us to thinking that we were less than a mile from our friends, when in reality, we were about 4 miles away. However, it wasn't too bad from this perspective.The house does not have A/C, so in order to keep it cool, windows and fans must be ran at all times. We also had a couple of issues with dogs barking incessantly at night and bugs (lots of mosquitoes and other bugs in the house). Overall though I think we were pretty satisfied with the house as it was well kept, had 3 full bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, and was fairly close to where we wanted to be.
Reviewed by: Alison T. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2015 The house is beautiful, great location, spacious, very clean. We loved kayaking down the river to the ocean (but don't try this after a heavy rain!) We would definitely come here again, it was paradise.
Joe B. from Virginia Beach, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2015 The Tree House offers a lot of privacy in a very comfortable home. The bull frogs in the river/creek provided a pleasing sound. The house was spotless when we arrived and well equipped. One loss of wifi was quickly resolved. It was easy to find good eating places in Hanalei for lunch and dinner. The Limahuli Garden and Preserve was a nice place to visit. Verizon cell phones couldn't get a signal in the house, but when on vacation, who cares? Pleasant memories and the screened in linai was great place to sip a glass of wine, or read a book.
A guest from Tosino, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2015 We really enjoyed the house, we loved the screened lanai and the mattresses were super comfy!The dogs could get a bit loud at times but for the most part it was lovely and quiet,My only complaint is that most of the dishes and pots in the cubboards were really dirty and I had to wash them before use,However we surely had a great stay!Thanks
A guest from Nanaimo, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in December, 2014 We arrived very late in 2 cars. It was a little hard to find as the description mentioned bridges and there were many before the house but they weren't the right ones. One driver made a few wrong turns. We did Ok getting in using the lock box.Very clean and well maintained, decor was easy on the eyes.Size: Adequate for 6 (3 couples), and for the 7th person, staying out on the screened porch, was adequate as well, but not if they are light sleepers, or got cold easily. Luckily my son did fine out there. There were very few bugs!Very clean, kitchen roomy and could work in it with 3 or more people at times! We took a few handy knives which came in useful but there plenty there.The barking dogs were a bit troublesome, mostly in the late nite, and early hours at times.however, it was cold at nite when we were there, and we had the windows closed, so the noise didn't really disturb us.It was great to come back to after an active day to relax. The fridge was a good size.The beds were good, with very nice linens.The layout meant one couple had the master bedroom with ensuite, and 5 people mainly used the other bathroom which wasn't too bad, but had to coordinate at times.We had one flooding warning but were confident the house would have stayed dry.We had a problem with one toilet and Remax sent a person to fix it very quickly, which was great!As it was December, we were lucky to get the number of sunny days we did get, and did get into the water several times on calmer days. Overall, for a group of 7 looking for self catering vacation, it was a great choice!
Julie L. from Kasilof, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 We loved this home! The fans provide excellent circulation, and the outdoor noises are amazing (though starting early). Spacious home in the heart of the lush and beautiful north, close to Tunnels and other excellent beaches. Even driving through this area was fun! Large soft beds, nice open living area with huge couch and attached porch. The kitchen gear could use an upgrade, like sharper knives. Very clean, and the closet has games, snorkel gear, toys, books, and a ton of videos. Cool little artist coop gallery right near the house. We drove down the road next to the Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge with great views and cool birds. Snorkeling, surfing, sand castles and hiking -- a wonderful time! Thank you for sharing this memorable home!
Spacious residence is a little far from everything.
Bill P. from Vancouver, BC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 Overall, our group of four adults was comfortable in the spacious house: The layout is very functional; beds are cozy; there is plenty of storage; the newer appliances, including washer and dryer function well; the kitchen was probably well equipped so time ago, it is now missing some essential tools such as a cheese grater, sharp knives, vegetable peeler, good corkscrew and can opener that works; beach chairs and coolers are great, all three boogie boards are broken; the Wi-Fi is reliable, but generally the electrical system is haunted with several lights that did not work even after replacing the light bulbs. Make sure you arrive in daylight or else you may never be able to open the lock box, and be very careful on the steps.The landscaping is overgrown, dead palm frowns litter the access road and the property, and the area under the house is where junk is piled up. Secondly, insects are really annoying, almost as much as the ever crowing roosters, the drumming noise and the barking of at least a dozen dogs from the adjacent property, which we understand are beyond the owner?s control. We ended up using the screen enclosed balcony the most.
A guest from Lakewood, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2014 The tree house was very clean and comfortable, situated in a nice out of the way location. Unfortunately, there are (still) a wild pack of dogs roaming around the neighboring properties that can keep you up late at night or wake you up early in the morning. The local police and humane society were not very responsive. Other than that, a very nice house.
John H. from Peoria, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Home was nicely furnished and well equipped. Walking distance to a small shop and "view" of an inaccessible beach. River behind house was pretty but not one we would swim in... Beds were very comfy. Location was good for North Shore, but expect a fair amount of driving to shops, beaches and restaurants. It was not a problem for us.
A guest from Lyons, NT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 This house was awesome. Everyone in our party was extremely impressed with it. The screened in lanai was especially popular.
A guest from Santa Monica, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 The treehouse was amazing!!! Loved the decor....very "beachy". When we arrived, the home was very clean and had everything you could want...and more. Beach chairs, movies, games....etc. Tons of towels, bedding...well stocked kitchen. The washer and dryer was so handy. Our favorite spot was the screened porch over the stream with daybed and table/chairs....we spent most of our time there relaxing and eating all our meals. There are ceiling fans in every room and ALL the beds are sooooo comfortable. Location was great, close drive to the little town of Hanalei and down the road was a fabulous restaurant, Mediterranean Gourmet, where they host a Luau on tuesday evenings, a must do! One thing I have to point out....since the house is on stilts, whenever a car drives over the bridge just outside the home (which happens often), the house sways a bit...like a teeny husband actually got a little "off balance" and had some vertigo.....but everything else is a huge plus and would highly recommend the treehouse. No bugs inside...only tiny little geckos (so cute), a few big spider webs outside...but hey, your are in the tropics, it's their home! Beautiful landscape and stream just outside that leads to the ocean... you could kayak to the beach, but it's not walkable. Nothing is walkable from the house....have to drive...but close to all the sights on the north shore. Can't wait to return!!!!
Brenda J. from Bay Village, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 We loved everything about the treehouse except the location. Quite a drive into Hanalei and even though there was a great beach just a little ways down the road, I wasn't comfortable having my children walk on such a busy road.
Reviewed by: Michael S. recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2014 Our two week stay on the north shore Kauai was truly an adventure in paradise. The tree house was clean and very well equiped. The beds are new and very comfortable. The cool wind in the banana trees, the birds, the frogs, the sound of the river, and the even chickens all added up to a great jungle experience. It was too quiet when I got home and I couldn't sleep right. The lanai was everyone's favorite place to lounge, read, and hang out. The house offered good privacy and everything we needed, even a friendly geko in the bathroom who ate the rare mosquito. When the toaster broke, Remax had another one on the porch the next day. The tree house was close to excellent beaches and good snorkeling. The farmers market in Hanalei was a blast. Thank you for an excellent vacation. Note: I cleaned out the vacuum cleaner and the brush but it still does not have much suction - does not pick up sand too well. I think it needs a new impeller. The carpets may suffer a little from lack of a good vacuum cleaner.
Beth H. from Sonora, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 The house itself was great, beds were comfortable, amenities were very good. The neighbors dogs barked all the time, and there were many of them. The barking made for a very restless stay, and we would not come back for that reason.
Larissa V. from Anchorage, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 We stayed at the Treehouse for our Honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing. The picture don't do justice to how beautiful and unique it is. We tend to like "off the beaten path" types of adventure and this fit perfectly. It is beautifully decorated, nestled in the canopy and near lovely Wainiha Beach. Hanalei is about 10 minutes down the road which is a lovely surf town. We can't wait to go back! Hoping to make the tree house an annual trip!
Ben W. from Allen, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 My wife and I are in love with Kauai and truly love the north shore. With all of it's amazing views and beaches. And not to mention our favorite town on the island Hanalei. There's great hiking and great people in this is a fabulous place to stay. The house is in great condition and very clean. It's also close to everything that is North Shore. We had total of four and our party and the house could have slept 6 comfortably. Will be back soon keep a light on for us until then.
A guest from Chico, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013 Arrived 4 p.m. Property was still being cleaned - until close to 6 p.m. Beach towels had to be asked for (brought later on day 2). Minimal toilet paper, no paper towels, bath soap, laundry detergent. Returned after dark day 2 to no power. Found no candles; emergency plug-in flashlight didn't work. Had to leave premises to get cellphone coverage. Emergency contact not sympathetic; said outages occurred often and told us to buy candles in Hanalei, but had to go to Princeville to get them. Not a fun evening; awoke still without electricity. No matches on premises; only candle found next day in cabinet above refrig. We liked the tree house and location, but emergency supplies and property management support were inadequate considering the cost of rental.
We loved the Hanalei area and can't wait to return.
Chris S. from Lake Oswego, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 The Kauai Tree House is an exceptional experience. Our family really enjoyed the openness of the house, the wonderful tropical breezes, and the sounds of the birds, the rain, the frogs, etc. The dogs in the kennel - across the river from the house - bark at different times and that can be annoying when you're trying to sleep, but we acclimated to them quickly and hardly noticed them by the time we left. The kitchen is well-stocked, expect that there was no coffee pot. For a group of caffiene fiends, that was a problem. The house is extremely well-located, with easy access to all of the wonderful beaches and hikes in the Hanalei area. We had a wonderful time here and look forward to returning. Please buy a coffee pot by then!
Eric M. from Cardiff by the Sea, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Nice, roomy place for family of 6. Very useful kitchen. Good location for traveling to different places in Hanalei. Not good if you want to play in the yard or ride your bike on the roads. Mosquitos problematic. The river looks so inviting but you can't swim in it. Ke'e Beach, snorkeling, hiking, shopping are great in Hanalei.
Holly S. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2013 My friends and I stayed here for a girls week in Kauai and it was perfect! The house is located close to Hanalei, the Na Pali coast, and beautiful beaches. It is located on a private drive and was very relaxing. You are truly up in the trees which keeps it cool and allows for lots of great noises! On the ground, the roosters crow all day and dogs bark at night. We didn't mind these noises but they many not be for all. The house itself is very comfortable and provided a great home base. The kitchen had everything we needed (blender, coffee grinder and maker, pans, etc). All the beds were comfortable and the house was very clean when we arrived. There were a lot of bugs and a few geckos but again, this is part of vacationing in Hawaii. I cannot wait to visit the Treehouse and North Shore again!
Heidi C. from Edwards, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in March, 2013 What a fantastic experience we had staying at the treehouse. It was exactly as described and we found it to be a lovely home in which we will return to. Just loved the sounds of the birds and frogs, felt like we were in the middle of the jungle but the location was totally convenient.Thank you for providing the backdrop for such a memorable vacation!
A guest from Ann Arbor, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in January, 2013 This was my second visit to Kauai and this location was nicely different from my past Princeville experience. On the north shore beyond Hanalei, it was wonderful to be in a lush garden setting on the garden isle and up in the air in a house on stilts. It was a very handy location for visiting the north shore beaches stretching from Hanalei to the Ha'ena State Park. You do have to get used to the crowing of the wild Kauai chickens that roam everywhere. The roosters were particularly noisy all through the night of the full moon, and became a bit quieter as the moon waned, saving their cacophony for actual sunrise. The unit did not have A/C, but being there in late January to early February, the days were pleasantly warm and nights cool enough for good sleeping. Escaping the cold midwest, I thought the weather was ideal. There was only one drawback I would feel remiss in not mentioning for anyone very sensitive to noise. Someone in the little valley and on the other side of the stream had a group of dogs that could sometimes launch into extended barking jags. Overall, however, this was a great place.
Betty Jo S. from Chilton, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2012 This was our first trip to Hawaii we can there to get married not only was the island amazing but the tree house was also amazing. It was in a great location to some beautiful beaches. It was nice to come back after some long days and unwind, we felt like we were at home. Would we stay here again most definitely! And we are already talking about when we are going back. It was nice that there was all the little extras at the tree house. Thank you for sharing your home with our family it made our vacation unforgettable.
Roger H. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in September, 2012 House and setting are a slice of old Hawaii, the kind of atmosphere that most of us expect of the islands, but often miss. The raised home boast a lanai at each of the three bedroos and a screened lanai off the living room that overlooks lush tropical landscaping and a gentle stream. Drive north and in a few miles reach the end the road and a hike into the Napoli coast. Drive south and in another easy drive, provisions, shopping and dining can be found at charming Hanalei. Great beaches are everywhere, and don't overlook the Taco Wagon parked near the Hanalei Pier - the fish tacos are excellent.
Danny J. from Salisbury, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in September, 2012 Beds were comfy, the creek, the rain and the great breeze thru the house made for great nights sleep.could due without the early bird alarm...chickens :) overall we enjoyed the house but it could use a good cleaning there was alot of cob webs.
Tropical Delight - I Felt Like I Was in a Rain Forest!
Ali R. from Grants Pass, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Absolutely LOVED this house - especially waking up to the sounds of birds of all kinds singing and calling! The king size beds were very comfortable and each of the bedrooms had it's own private balcony. We never used the dining table as the screened-in lanai was so pleasant! The grounds were like living in a botanical garden - gorgeous! Definitely got our exercise in with the steep staircase! Boy, a hoist would have been nice for our very heavy luggage. Quite a sight - it took 3 middle aged women to carry up one bag at a time! As far as the 100 yards to the ocean in the ad; hmmm... maybe as the crow flies? Definitely had to drive to the ocean but beautiful beaches were not far away. The road is way to narrow to safely walk on it and very heavily traveled. We had some bugs but we are gecko friendly people and didn't mind that they appeared in the evening to try to take care of the evening buggies. Just recommend keeping all foods in the refrigerator. Too bad there was road construction on both the highway and the road just across the river to the rear of the house. Very loud. At least they did not work on nights or weekends! I would definitely suggest going back to this house again. Eventually the road work will be finished - yeah?
Diane K. from Greenburg, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We stayed here for 4 days (while we toured the North Shore). The home was absolutely lovely! We had 4 teenagers with us and they thought it was so cool that they did a "Cribs" video. The location is perfect if you want to see the North Shore as it's right in the middle. The home is very roomy and very clean. The grounds are awesome (very tropical) and you can float right to the beach (or walk)! It was a perfect stay!
Faith R. from Phoenix, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2012 House needs attention, master bath needs a good cleaning. We had to wear off when inside the house because there were so many bugs. Grounds were unkempt and on arrival I had to contact the property managent to request it be cleaned up. Also, there was not a grill and had to stress that it was a requirement for us.
Diana N. from Hoquiam, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 We had a wonderful experience at your property. We had a few phonecalls from the management but were not at the house at the time. Other than a few existing holes in the walls and the fact that the garbage disposal did not work....the house was perfect! We hope to return!!
A guest from Niwot, CO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2012 This house has great bedrooms, linens etc., but the cookware is very old and cheap. The broom was falling apart and the vacuum cleaner dirty and spewing lint. Slightly false advertising, it may be close to a beach, but with no possibility to walk there due to single bridges and traffic. Washer was broken, but with no note to say how to use. Beach towels in bad condition except one. House needs instructions and some kind of welcome to future guests.
Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2012 This would be a lovely place to stay if updated. Living room furniture old and uncomfortable. Beds and linens old. Kitchen utensils need updating. Be aware setting is dark and rainy in winter.
A guest from Kenmore Alberta, CANADA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2012 Mislead from the beginning. The house is close to a beach but unless you are willing to float down the creek, it is not easily accessible. When I inquired about the proximity to the beach, I was assured it was only 100yrds. Sure but not walking distance. Then after I had already paid my deposit I was informed the house had been sold and I would have to deal with Remax Kauai. From the get go with Remax I had problems. I realize that it was because of the switch in ownership but should not have been that bad. I don't have enough space here to relay all the problems, phone calls, faxes, emails etc. I had a heck of a time getting my deposit back. Even after the permission was given to have it returned to me and waiting for the 35-40days. I was even charged again for the amount of the deposit instead of refunded! Needless to say, I would not recommend dealing with Remax Kauai from my experiences with them. Everything has finally been made right so I do Thank Remax for that. They also offered discount if I ever decided to book with them again. The house itself is nice enough. Although there must be a dog kennel near by because there is non stop howling/barking all evening and night. The master bedroom has to deal with the sound of the vehicles crossing the bridges as well, unless you close the windows which cuts off the cool air. The living room furniture is broken, the kitchen sink needs some serious maintenance as the garbage disposal sprays debris unless you put something over top of it while trying to shoot water down. The ants are sure a pain too. Considering how beautiful the island is we still had a great time, next time though, I'll find somewhere else to stay.
