The Surfboard House is just what we were looking for. A little quirky (in the best way), more comfortable than a fancy hotel (great bed, shower, TV/AC), and an amazing location. Simon took fantastic care of us and directed us to just the right guides/hikes/restaurants with ease. If you are looking to enjoy the feeling of Hanalei, this is definitely... More

My husband and I arrived in Kauai with no plans other than that we'd spend our first two nights at Hanalei Surfboard House. We're so glad we did! Simon (owner and host, who lives on the property) had everything set up for our arrival and the room was huge, with lots of interesting decor. When we met Simon later, he... More

My husband and I loved our stay at the Hanalei Surfboard House. We visited Kauai on our honeymoon this fall and stayed in the Cowgirl Suite. The Surfboard House location was perfect - situated on a quiet residential street, tucked just between the beach and the town of Hanalei. We loved Hanalei itself - there was lots to do, see... More

Not just a great space but a thoroughly delightful experience. An eclectic collection of furnishings in a comfortable space and an exotic garden, so close to the beach and those fantastic Hanalei Bay sunsets and only a few minutes walk to the village. From our first enquiry through to departure our hosts ensured that every aspect of our stay exceeded... More

I have spent several weeks contemplating how and what to convey in my review of the Surfboard House. The many reviews I read before making my selection were extremely helpful and solidified my decision to stay there, but there in an intangible about the place that is hard to convey in words. First of all congratulations for planning on staying... More

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Simon's stylishy chic Surfboard House in Hanalei for 5 evenings ~ for our wedding anniversary and my 50th birthday celebration. The Love Shack was delightful, and our stay was truly one of a kind~ This gem in Hanalei has breathtaking, tropically landscaped grounds that are meticulously maintained, and its a wonderful place...

We had an excellent stay in the cowgirl suite. We particularly enjoyed the private garden with beautiful orchids outside our suite. The beach was just a short walk away and was a great place for an evening stroll to watch the sunset.

My husband and I came to Kauai and Simon's Surfboard House to relax, and relax we did! We stayed in the Cowgirl Suite and were delighted with the accommodations: roomy, tasteful, fascinating and with all the amenities we could hope for. The interior of the room was endlessly entertaining, and we marveled at the many interesting items and novel touches... More

After contacting the establishment to make our initial reservation, the owner immediately replied with detailed information on how to handle things upon arrival, etc., since he was going to be traveling and the manager would be taking care of us. We contacted her to coordinate our arrival time and were all set. Upon getting to the property, there was (as... More

This is the 3rd place we've stayed in Hanalei (Cowgirl Suite). Wish it was the first, because it's the best. Simon's Surfboard House is exactly what any traveler wants from a residential rental. So clean. So comfortable. So close to the beach. And so much character. The attention to detail is as impressive as it is inspiring. Instead of complaints,... More
