This is my second time visiting the Surfboard House. Once again i had an amazing time thank you Simon (the owner). This is such relaxing place to stay and you can't beat the location, directly in front of the beach. I stayed in the cowgirl suite and it was so fun with all the cute decor. I strongly suggest that...

Let me start with the sound system. At home I play my iPod either through my PC or on a $65 blue tooth device I bought. At Surfboard House I played my iPod through a set of Bose speakers. Jimmy Buffett never sounded so good. That’s the attention to detail. Most accommodation owners who say their place is “fully self-contained”...

My husband and I enjoy a relaxed, authentic experience when traveling and the Surfboard House gives you exactly that. From the moment we entered the gate, we realized we had found a little piece of heaven. Everything - the location, the amenities, the hospitality were perfection. The Surfboard House in Hanalei is the place to explore Kauai if you want...

Simon Potts (the property owner) put it best: when asked what brought him to Kauai, he simply pointed to his property and said "to live in paradise!" The Hanalei Surfboard House is exactly that, paradise, and every interior and exterior detail seems perfectly placed for enhancing your experience on the property and in Kauai. We were a couple of newlyweds...

We are a couple in our mid 50's. After experiencing the hecticness of Waikiki, the Surfboard house was a sanctuary. We found Simons oasis a masterpiece of collected items representing points in time over the journey of life. Much more interesting than a hotel room. Everyday we found something unique and interesting in the room and grounds. Hanalei provides an...

The Hanalei Surfboard House is a small property with three rental units; two under the owner's residence and one in the front of the property. It is conveniently located near the bay. We stayed in the unit in front, "The Love Shack". The property offers extras like a nice grill, boogie boards, cooler, etc for your convenience. Like everything in...

We left the Love Shack just 5 days ago and still wish we were there. This was definitely the coolest vacation experience we could have dreamed of for our honeymoon. We missed having Simon there (having read so many good reviews of his service), but were pleased to meet him on the last day of our stay (he had been...

My wife and I have returned year after year to the Loveshack. There is an enormous volume of information in other reviews as well as my older reviews on the details of the accommodations. What can be said, in brief, is that Simon has maintained his magic formula for a vacation rental, and not one aspect has slipped in quality...

Hanalei Bay is wonderful, and the Surfboard House is a great way to experience it. We walked everywhere we wanted within the little town. Simon was very welcoming, but then pretty much left us to our own devices, which was fine. The landscape design could be described as bowlingball-surfboard-gothic, or "English Eccentric". We stayed in the Elvis room, which suited...

Where do I start?! We stayed at the Surfboard House for just over a week, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Hanalei, maybe even Kauai. The House is seconds from the beach, and by beach I mean Hanalei Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen. The House manager Simon is the perfect host,...
