All of our cottages are completely furnished and include linens and kitchen items. In addition, each home has a television, DVD player, high-speed internet access, CD stereo, washer and dryer, barbeque, outside shower, and, of course, breathtaking natural beauty.


All homes require a deposit to be returned to Hanalei Land Company within 10 days upon receipt of contract to confirm reservation. Security Deposit required is 25% of the rental rate. The deposit, which is separate from the rent, will be refunded to you by mail approximately 4-8 weeks after you leave. Deducted from the deposit will be: 1) additional cleaning and/or housekeeping charges over and above the standard departure cleaning of $150, 2) any charges for long distance phone calls, 3) replacement charge for lost keys, and 4) any charges for damage that is more than normal wear and tear.


Except for Christmas bookings, with a 60-day written notice we will refund the full deposit, less a $100 processing fee. If less than 60 days’ written notice, the entire deposit will be forfeited. If less than 30 days’ written notice, the rent & excise tax will be forfeited unless the unit can be re-rented.


Rent is due 60 days before your arrival. While we make every effort to keep our information current, because of the increasing cost of owning and maintaining a home in Hawaii, the rates quoted on the following pages may change slightly from time to time. All rates are plus 4.166% general excise tax and 8.25% TA tax (7/1/09-6/30/10), and 9.25% TA tax (7/1/10 and beyond). Please note that there is a three(3)- night minimum for the Plantation Cottages and a one(1)-week minimum for Kauikeolani Estate (2 wk min during Christmas holidays for all rentals). If you plan to stay longer than a week, the extra nights are prorated at the weekly rate.

Special Instructions for Prime Time Bookings

There is a two(2)-week minimum stay between December 15th and January 5th. Cancellation requires 90 days’ written notice. Rent is due 60 days before Christmas rental.

Rules and Quirks

Kauikeolani Estate and Hanalei Plantation Cottages are strictly NO SMOKING. Kauikeolani is like a living museum. Guests of Kauikeolani (as well as the Plantation cottages) are asked to remove their shoes before entering the home. This is both local custom and to protect the soft wood floors.

For stays longer than 7 days, a mid-clean is required at the cost of $150.00. Any additional cleaning may be requested for an additional fee.
