Just spent 8 days in the Elvis Room at the Hanalei Surfboard House. We were given every amenity to ensure our comfort during our stay, from the beach accessaries to the grill on the patio to the beautifully decorated room with a kitchenette. It is located within walking distance to the beach and just 1 mile from the center of...

My husband and I stayed at the Love Shack and well, Loved it. The decor maintains a perfect level of fun kitsch and we never got tired of taking in all the details of the room over the week we were here. We were also impressed with Simon's massive record collection lining the walls. And his courtyard garden - zounds!...

We just spent 8 wonderful days at the Surfboard house. Wishing we were still there. After trips to other Hawaiian islands, this is the island, the town, and the place we will go back to. The suite was great! From decor and comfort, to beach gear - everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The owner (Simon) is knowledgeable and...

This was our third visit to the Hanalei Surfboard House, and it was as wonderful as the first time! Simon Potts is a great host, and the accommodations are very comfortable, clean, and fun with themes for each room. The location is amazing - you can walk to a wonderful beach across the street, and it's very easy to visit...

Myself and my new husband have just returned home from a 2 week stay at the surfboard house in Kauai for our honeymoon. It was the most incredible experience we have ever had. Traveling from London UK we had no idea how beautiful this island is or how the lifestyle of Kauai would suit us so perfectly. It was everything...

We stayed in the "Elvis" room for 5 nights in early January. Simon is a gracious host and has every need covered. Only a 50 foot walk to the ocean! Comfortable, clean room with a kitchen and washer and dryer. We will definitely stay here every time we visit Hanalei Bay.

We wanting something outside the standard resort and the Surfboard House was perfect. The coolest décor and beautiful spot with everything we needed provided. Appreciated having the kitchenette and being able to do a little cooking; absolutely loved walking to the bay and in to town. A very quiet spot but close to food, shopping and coffee! I sincerely hope...

Hanalei Surfboard House was the ideal location from which to explore the north shore during our first visit to beautiful Kauai. The Elvis Suite was quiet, comfortable, spotless, private and so wonderfully unique!! We enjoyed being integrated into the Hanalei Bay neighbourhood and the 3 minute walk to Waioli Beach, one of the nicest parts of the bay. Simon has...

I cannot recommend Hanalei Surfboard House enough for those who visit the north coast of Kauai, and who like stay in a place that feels like a home away from home. The marble-clad resorts are there for those who prefer them, but this is different, and for us, much better. Everything we needed was there, and if we needed help...
