Anini Beach, North Shore Kauai
There are only a handful of homes facing the turquoise sea on this exclusive stretch of sand. It’s easy to see why the acclaimed author fell in love with Kai Hale at first sight. “For me, paradise begins on this pink, shell-strewn ribbon of Anini Beach,” Hannah says of her island home. “From the moment you pull into the crushed coral driveway and park under the giant palms, you feel it: a stillness that soothes the busiest soul.”
Featured in Coastal Living magazine and House Hunter’s Ultimate Vacation Homes, the novelist’s oceanfront Kauai hideaway has everything you’d expect: a stunning Koa wood kitchen; travertine and bamboo flooring; and nine-foot-tall pocket doors that open up to the lanai, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor living experience.
Ocean Views Abound
Ocean views abound — from the great room, and every bedroom, as well as the oceanfront office in the master suite where many of Hannah’s novels have come to life. All three of the bedrooms have private oceanfront lanais, so you’ll wake up to panoramic views of the alluring Pacific. The elevated living spaces capitalize on the natural airflow from the trade winds and gentle sea breezes.
Little ones will spend countless hours on the beach collecting shells, searching for crabs, and building sandcastles. Take a mile-long swim, or a run along the beach road, and then refresh yourself in the private outdoor shower.
Lush & Tropical Five-Star Perfection
Situated on a half-acre of land, which has been manicured to lush, tropical, five-star perfection, with expertly placed lighting that turns the property into a magical landscape at night, this licensed vacation rental can accommodate both large parties and intimate gatherings. For the bestselling author, memories have been made here. “We have hosted weddings on the lawn, hula dancers on the sand, and wonderful dinner parties on the lanais.”
Who knows if you’ll pen a New York Times Bestseller here — but you will enjoy the same magic of the sea. This is a setting for renewal and relaxation. The favorite activity for Hannah is being still: “Whatever one dreams of and however one defines their perfect island getaway, it is here, at Kai Hale… on the shores of Anini Beach.”
