About Marney Craig
Like so many other visitors, I was entranced by the sheer beauty of the north shore of Kauai. It gives me so much pleasure to be able to share this paradise with others by opening my home to visitors from all over, so they too may experience the rare unspoiled nature of one of the most special places on earth.
Marney Craig purchased this House in 2000
Why Marney Craig chose Hanalei Palms
My travels have taken me all over the world, but Kauai always drew me back. Hanalei and the north shore of Kauai will never change, never be developed, never have hotels, condos, or very much tourist infrastructure. This most beautiful spot is protected and secure in it's beauty and appeal. What better spot to have a home to come to and to share with others.
What makes this House unique
My home is not only beautiful, charming, comfortable and inviting, but also very private and secluded, surrounded by beautiful gardens, and adjacent to a tropical hardwood forest. The foliage, the flowers, the birds, the sunrise, the relaxation of this wonderful environment, combined with the beach at Hanalei Bay and Hanalei town both being a very short walk from the house make it the ideal spot for the ultimate getaway.

Every bit as nice as described
The comment from our adult kids was simple: "when can we go back?" The house is better than I expected and I expected a lot. The neighborhood is wonderful and beautiful. Two blocks to Hanalei Bay and five blocks from downtown Hanalei. We walked everywhere, even during the rain. The beds were all comfortable, the furniture as nice as my own home. An avocado tree is in the back yard as well as limes. We will stay here again, hopefully next winter. Loved it very much.
Property, Owner and Manager are Wonderful
Great beach house in easy spot by the beach and close to town. Marney and Beaux scrambled and worked so hard to help us in a housing emergency. This house can be divided into two units, so contact the owner first because VRBO/Home Away can't accurately tell if the whole house is available or just half.
Fantastic house for extended family Christmas
Just stayed for a week over Christmas with my family of four, my brother's family of three, and my parents. The house was absolutely wonderful. The set up was perfect for us: 3 bedrooms in the main upstairs section with large open kitchen/dining room/living room. Then my brother and his wife and daughter stayed in the two bedroom apartment downstairs (with it's own kitchen/living area). And my parents stayed in the one bedroom apartment. Everyone had their own space but could come together upstairs--either inside or on the lanai. And as is described on the website, the house feels truly private because of all the lush vegetation around it. The kitchen is great and has everything we needed--and we did a fair amount of cooking there. The house really has everything, included two washer/dryers. There are boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas and wagons to cart everything to the beach, which is a very short walk down a quiet street. And it is a lovely, quiet neighborhood (other than the roosters--welcome to Kauai :) )
Hanalei is a lovely town with a great beach. Surf not too heavy for little kids, but people are also out taking surfing lessons.
The little downtown area is also walking distance through the neighborhood (a little too far for my 82 year mother to walk, but easy for the rest of us). We'd walk to get coffee and pastries in the morning.
What else to say about the house? It does rain at times on Kauai and the house was a wonderful place to hang out and play games on the lanai with some tropical rain coming down. Plenty of room for us all to hang out in the evening and talk or watch a movie. Wifi works great.
We didn't have any problems with the house other than a moment when I couldn't figure out how to put the keys back in the lock box, so I called Ken, the maintenance guy, who answered immediately and helped me out.
Marney was lovely in our email exchanges. The check-in and out was easy as could be.
The whole experience was really great.
Thank you so much for your very thoughtful and wonderful review. I am so glad you all enjoyed your stay, and very pleased that the house was so well-suited to your needs. The roosters are indeed part of the Kauai experience. I love that you sat outside on the lanai and played board games. It is lovely to be able to walk to the beach and walk into town, and to have the privacy of the wonderful tropical setting to come back to. It sounds like you really experienced all that is so special about Hanalei, and our house, and I appreciate your wonderful descriptions. Thanks again, and I hope you can return some time. Sincerely, Marney
We had a 3 generation family reunion, ranging from 1 year to 74 years old, and the house was perfect
The house is beautiful, and well furnished. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds are comfortable, there are amble towels, comfortable furniture. Everything worked flawlessly. The house is well stocked with toys for kids, toys for adults (boogie boards, puzzles, etc). There are ample fans throughout the house. Walking, it is only 2 short blocks from the beach, and 3 or so blocks from Hanalei village. Very relaxing!
Well stocked and comfy beds!
We rented the upper and lower units for a family vacation with kids and grandparents. Grandparents took lower unit and we took the upper unit with our 4 kids. The house was perfect in the location, comfort and had everything we needed like pack n play and high chair and all the beach supplies. It's a short walk to the beach. The wrap around porch was lovely.
Perfect quiet neighborhood home
This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for tranquility and homey-ness from your vacation. The beds are comfortable and soft, the bathrooms immaculately clean, and the kitchen is well-stocked with dishes and cookware for any meal. We especially appreciated the view from the wrap-around deck on the second floor, which overlooks the small stream running behind the house. Be aware that the house has no air conditioning, but our family found the temperature & humidity very pleasant. The owner's advice for local restaurants, markets and activities made our stay very enjoyable. We can highly recommend staying here!
