We spent our honeymoon on this property in Hanalei and it was the most awesome, magical experience !! The suite itself is comfortable and laid back with all the amenities you can think of, including beach gear, a full kitchen, and a spacious outdoor vibe shower. There’s a beautiful back porch to chill at where we grilled every night with a view of the stars!! It was so relaxing to hang here between hiking and swimming, and it’s in the perfect location- a 2 minute walk to Hanalei Beach, a 2 minute drive into town, and a short drive to the other beaches on the north shore. This spot is truly special and we definitely wanna come back!

My wife and I stayed at this amazing property right across from Hanalei Bay and it is an absolute gem! Simon is a fantastic host and a great guy who has everything you will need to enjoy this little slice of paradise. He gave us a great tip that helped us secure a table at a restaurant we’d been trying to book for a couple weeks unsuccessfully! The grounds of the property are stunningly beautiful and well taken care of by Simon himself. Our suite was very comfortable in every aspect and impeccably decorated to match the vibe. This is THE place stay in Hanalei (any of the suites) and it’s in a super convenient location to walk to the center of town and just a short drive to Tunnels Beach or the Okolehao Trail or anything else you want to see in the area. We stayed in the Love Shack for four nights and my wife almost cried when we had to leave at the end of our stay to head to the Big Island. I joked to her that I wanted to us just stay there and live permanently if Simon would let us ;) We will be back! In the immortal lyrics of Kate Pierson and Fred Schneider (our fellow Athens, Georgia compatriots from the B-52s): Love shack, baby Love shack, that's where it's at! -Eric

The surfboard house is awesome! We stayed in the Love Shack and had such a wonderful visit. It’s a block from the beach and within walking distance from town as well. Simon was a great host! He greeted us on arrival and gave us some great recommendations of things to do around the island. We would definitely recommend this place and hope to return someday soon! Thanks again Simon!

This was our second time staying at the Surfboard House and it won’t be our last. The accommodations are perfect for two people, and the property is stunning. It manages to feel high-end enough for the most discerning travelers, yet completely laid back, homey and unpretentious at the same time. The suites are clean, comfortable and feature all of the amenities you need for a stay at the beach. The location could not be better and Simon is a gracious and thoughtful host. A truly special place!

We had the most amazing stay at the Hanalei Surfboard House! I am almost remiss to write a review because I don’t want this hidden gem to be perpetually booked. Very comfortable, chic accommodations in the best possible location in Hanalei. Simon and Teresa are so amazing and welcoming - couldn’t have imagined a better place to stay near town.
