What Past Guests Are Saying
A Slice of Heaven
We were two families (total of 10 people) renting the main house and the apartment below. It was absolutely perfect for us!
After nearly 5 years of planning, we were finally able to enjoy this wonderful home! Marney was incredibly accommodating, going above and beyond in the planning and procuring of our vacation rental.
The house and apartment were perfect for our 2 families. Having stayed in several Vrbo homes before, I was incredibly impressed at how well it was stocked. One of my favorite family traditions while in Kauai is to go to the fish market and get fresh fish then make up new recipes on the spot, based on what we have on hand. We call it "kitchen cupboard fish". Marney had every single spice I could imagine. Combined with her excellent kitchen supplies and utensils, I made an utterly fabulous gourmet meal.
We had 5 children with us, ranging in age from 2-8 years of age. There was a toy or activity for every single age group!
For 7-10 days at a time, each new family feels like they live in a slice of paradise. It feels like your own home and for that short period, you are the exquisite owner in the most magical place on earth. Marney, thank you for creating such an inviting home to entertain our wildest daydreams!
We'll be back to make more precious memories!
Best house i could have rented on kauai. this house is one block from the beach and a 5 minute or so walk into town. location cannot be beat. It is at the end of the road and very quiet, lush garden all around. Super convenient for our little group of 4 but there is an extra room just in case. we rented the top part of the house (hibiscus) We will return. Thank you Marney for the use of your very nice house! we loved every minute of our stay and will return soon!
Response from Marney Craig - 03/06/2013
Thank you so much, Pauline. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hanalei is, indeed, a very special place and it's great to know that staying at Maluhia Hanalei was an additional plus!
Beautiful and Lush
I spent 10 days in January at this beautiful house, and wish I could have stayed forever. If you want to truly feel Hawaii, and to get away for fun, rest, and relaxation in true Hawaiian style, this is the spot. It is is surrounded by lush gardens with beautiful flowers, lime, avocado, and banana trees. The house is very comfortable and has all the amenities you need, including beach equipment; chairs, boogie boards and snorkeling gear. It is a great place to go as a couple or as a group. I went with a group of friends we utilized the apartment and the house. The upstairs house was where we all gathered, shared meals, no one was ever on top of each other.
Hanalei Bay is just a block away; great for daily walks on the beach, swimming, and surfing. It is a very short walk to Hanalei town where you can eat out, shop or listen to music. We loved the Sushi at The Dolphin Fish Market, the Family style Luau at the Tahiti Nui and the Farmers Market on Saturday.
I highly recommend this place. The owner is very helpful and accommodating, great space, yard and overall proximity to all the beauty in Kauai.
An amazing, clean place within walking distance to town and beac
First of all, Marney is very accomodating and responds to all requests and questions timely. We were 2 couples and we stayed at Marney's Hibiscus upstairs for about a week. It truly is paradise. Plenty of windows for sunlight and breezes. The wraparound porch is just perfect for morning coffee, dining or just having cocktails while looking out at the coconut, avocado and banana trees. The place is very clean with ceiling fans in every room. The location is a short walk to the beach and Hanalei Bay is the best I've seen. The water is good for swimming, but our most fun was boogey boarding. Oh, and Marney has a great supply of water toys so no need to bring your own. The town of Hanalei is within in walking distance. Be sure to check out the farmer's market and the local shops. I am highly recommending Marney's place in Hanalei Bay. It is beautiful and we know we'll be back.
The owner Marney went above and beyond to take care of our needs. We are grateful for her high level of customer service, and plan on staying at the Maluhia Hanalei during our next trip to Kauai.
Home in tropical paradise
We were overwhelmed by the privacy and tropical beauty of this home. The tropical area in the back has a lovely stream and beautiful lush vegetation surrounds the home as does the lanai. We stayed in the upper area "Hibiscus" which was spotless and comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped and large enough for several cooks working together. Easy walk to beach and restaurants. Town is very friendly and quaint. Easy drive to Napali coast trail, Secret Beach, Limahuli Gardens, Napali Sea Breeze catamarrans--all highly recommend. The tour guide book The Ultimate Kauai is a must reading before and during your travels. Marney was the most prompt, responsive, and helpful owner with whom I I have ever communicated. This gem is definitely on my top five list of places to call home.

Paradise in Hanalei Bay Palms
I stayed in a wonderful house located just a short walk from the beach at Hanalei Bay and if you continue on for a few more blocks you're at the village. So it is very convenient to get around and enjoy the beauty of the area. The house has an upstairs flat that can easily accommodate six guest and there is a two bedroom apartment downstairs which is where I stayed. There is a nice yard where you can kick back and relax in a beautiful peaceful garden setting. The kitchen had what I needed to make meals if didn't want to go to one of the local restaurants. I fell asleep easily in a comfortable bed and my teenage daughter was delighted to have her own room and the quick access to the beach and village. The place was clean and well cared for and was a delightful place for us to get away for a week or so. I look forward to a return trip in next year.
Two years ago we knew we would return to Maluhia Hanalei to continue our stay in Paradise.
As advertised, the unique location adjacent to protected land(which cannot be developed) is wonderfully private on a cul de sac just a short walk to breathtaking Hanalei Bay. Another short walk takes you into Hanalei and a bit of a time travel experience as the town and surroundings capture Hawaii as it was years ago with no chain stores/restaurants and no buildings over two stories tall. The restaurant choices in town are surprisingly excellent from upscale Baracuda and Postcards restaurants to sushi, burgers and a variety of breakfast and lunch spots all within walking distance as the town is just three or four blocks long. By the way, for the freshest fish imaginable in a wide selection for sashimi or take home rolls are available at the small store behind the Dolphin Restaurant.
The house is well appointed and obviously well thought out with separate upper and ground level units giving guests additional privacy from a group of up to 10 people with a total of five bedrooms. Everything we needed was at the house in the kitchen as well as surf boards, kids beach toys, beach chairs and mats. There are two convenient laundry rooms and an outdoor shower. The decor ranged from Hawaiian style with all creature comforts, to whimsical personal touches including Puff, the magic Dragon. The adjacent protected land had just been thinned leaving the house with a better view into the jungle, with more light, stronger breezes and more open feeling than I remembered. The landscaping includes banana, papaya and a Margarita(lime) tree in addition to the usual jungle flower subjects.
I love being part of Hawaii pretty much as I remember it from living there in the 1970's and I highly recommend Maluhia Hanalei and the pleasant, helpful and easy to deal with owner.
This house is situated in a beautiful area next to a land preserve. The views are absolutely wonderful, green, lush, and tropical. We stayed there in early December and the location is private and quiet at the same time as being accessible to downtown with restaurants and shops, and a quick walk to the beach. This is a great spot for a vacation!

Beautiful Home, Beautiful Stay Hanalei December 2011
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely home that is even prettier than the pictures. It is immaculate in every sense, comfortable and inviting. It is well stocked with everything you would need, books, games, toys, and of course a kitchen with everything including a blender to make tropical drinks, make sure you pick one of the great limes from the tree in the yard.
I love how close it is to both the beach and town. We walked everywhere. Can't wait to go back to stay at Maluhia.
A great value for a terrific Hanalei home!
I've rented many vacation homes in Hanalei, and this home is a stunning value that provides a great experience. Tucked back at the end of a curving cul-de-sac, you're living like a local (without the responsibilities). You can walk to the beach, or bike to town, in 5 minutes. Our group took the whole house and loved having two living rooms and kitchens to give us extra privacy. The lower apartment is nice and cool--if I needed 2 bedrooms it would be perfect. Loved the outdoor shower, patio and yard! The upper floor had plenty of room for all eight of us to cook, eat, watch TV, play games, and even dance! And Marney has all the chairs, boogie boards, and mats you'll need. She couldn't have been more hospitable. Highly recommended!
grown family vacation
Great stay in Hanalei
The week stay we had at this home in Hanalei is one of our family's top ten family vacations that we have taken. We stayed in the top half of the house, and there was plenty of room for all four of us. We often bought beautiful fish and fruit to eat in as the kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, including an excellent blender for mixing tropical drinks! The ease and proximity to the beach, which has a life guard station and shower right there was incredible and we walked and swam there everyday, as there were never too many people crowding that area though the scenery is spectacular. There are also kayaking and surfing lessons you can take just a few minutes walk down the beach. The neighborhood the house is situated in is incredibly friendly and relaxing. We highly recommend this fun and enjoyable house!
Wonderful rental home within a block of Hanalei Bay
The home is subdivided into 3 separate rentals. We stayed in the Plumeria room which represents 1/2 of the lower floor. It opens to a beautiful backyard lawn filled with tropical trees and flowers. Different birds would flit by as we watched from the back porch and living room. This 2 bedroom rental is colorfully decorated and very convenient for walking to the beach at Hanalei Bay. It's a little further to "downtown" Hanalei for breakfast/dinner, because there is no direct "trail" through the houses. You have to walk to the beach and up another street, but it's short enough. The neighborhood is quiet (except for the morning roosters). The owner keeps a closet full of beach toys you can use while your staying there. Very relaxing. Everything seems well maintained. No air conditioning, but the ceiling fans were all we needed in the moderate weather. Had a great time for a good value in my opinion.
Nevada city CA
Just wanted to thank you for sharing your lovely home with my family! It was
perfect in every way. Everything we needed and so much more was available. Your
list of things to do and places to eat were spot on. Beaux was marvelous and
most attentive. We will definitely visit again!! What a marvelous island. We
went on a catamaran, snorkeled, zip lined, kayaked, hiked in Canyon State Park,
hiked along the coast, visited the light house and botanical gardens, watched
sunsets at Hannalei beach and at the St. Regis!! And even found time to dip into
the ocean. We barbecued several times, loving the fish selection at Dolphin
Fish Market and indulged in lots of poke!! Postcards was excellent as was Caffe
Coco! Luau was perfect Overall my family had an awesome time. Perfect holiday
treat for all of us!! Again, thanks so much for letting us experience Kauai, Hannelei, and the beauty
of the island with your home as our base! It was the perfect setting for
evening cocktails and dinner and of course listening to the roosters in the early
"Our" Hawaii Beach House
We love Hanalei and this house. We have rented 3 times over the last 6 years including all three units for a family group including small children and teenagers. It is a light, airy and comfortable house with great cooking facilities and a beautiful lanai for eating outside. We love the tropical garden full of birds, and a special lime tree! It is just two blocks from the greatest beach in the world at Hanalei Pavilion. Hanalei town is an easy walk and has great shopping and restaurants. We consider it our home away from home!
We consider this our home away from home every year & love it.
We've rented the entire house or portions of it every year since 2003. It's family friendly but has enough Hawaiian accents to make one feel that they are truly living aloha. Located barely a block from the Hanalei Bay Beach, we love parking our car & going days without driving. The beach, Hanalei town & surrounding areas are our paradise.
Deep Rest Retreats
Resting in Paradise
This is the most amazing location to hold my Deep Rest Retreats, just a block from the beach, tucked away down the lane, so private and quiet and exquisitely sheltered in tropical beauty! Eight women shared this lovely home in comfort, with all our needs met. The spacious kitchen,living room and outdoor decks were perfect for all of our gatherings and we slept in peace. It's just a short walk to the village of Hanalei for a fabulous farmers market! I would recommend this rental to anyone who truly needs, and knows how to take a vacation. Here, you can get back to the rhythm of ahhh...with the magnificent Napali mountains at your back, the sunsets over the bay, a full moon swim in the champagne sea...just divine! I just may reserve a week a month, so get your dates set now!
