Kahakai vacation rental
“There is a gentle, subtle rhythm on the North Shore of Kauai. Lifestyles relax to match the call of the sun, surf and sea. Settled into a small corner of the world, the Kauikeolani Estate in Hanalei."

About Kauikeolani

Mature gardens, expansive lawns, grazing pasture, and an ancient Hawaiian fishpond are just a taste of the treasures which await discovery at Kauikeolani in Hanalei, Kauai.

Kick off your shoes and stroll upon a thick green carpet, where sculpted shade trees beckon you to lie down - "if only for a brief while." Dive into the cool ocean beneath the hallow glow of moonlight; or enjoy an afternoon on the 9 hole practice course, which unobtrusively wanders its way throughout the Hanalei estate.

The Estate is comprised of six separate accommodations. Kauikeolani, once the residence of Albert and Emma Wilcox (read about its history), remains as the central structure upon the land. The original home dates back to 1800s, at which time it was a comparably modest structure of only three bedrooms. However, as the Wilcox generations grew, so did the walls of Kauikeolani. Today, the main house is comprised of six bedrooms and six bathes, comfortably accommodating a total of twelve guests.

An expansive living room is the focal point with the home. Filled with antique furniture, the refurbished room reflects the opulent tastes of a late 19th century missionary lifestyle; this large central parlor is a living museum. Perhaps the most abundant feature of the main residence is its verandah. Twelve feet wide, it skirts the perimeter of the home. Within view six waterfalls descend in a series of tiers which tumble down from spectacular mountain heights over 4,000 feet above the sea.
