About Jeffrey Schneider
Aloha from Makua Beach (Tunnels) on the beautiful North Shore of Kauai. I am an architect based in Los Angeles. I have designed many high end resorts and casinos.

Why Jeffrey Schneider chose Hanalei
I am a well traveled person and the Wainiha River Valley is the absolutely the most beautiful spot I've ever seen, About 20 years ago I fell in love with the north shore of Kauai and I decided to make it a permanent part of my life. I was incentivized to work hard so I could buy a piece of paradise, which I did in 2006. I love it here like no other place in the world and I'm happy to share this magical paradise with other beach lovers and "beauty of nature" enthusiasts!

Relaxing In paradise
If you want to get away and experience a real tropical paradise, rent this place. The Hot tub and cool off pool were awesome and with close proximity to Hanalei to get provisions or go out for a meal.
Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The sunset view from the hot tub was amazing. We especially liked the beautiful paintings that Jeffrey painted. An added bonus is the sweet outdoor kitty that comes around each evening for treats.
The view of the valley and mountains from the living room, decks and backyard of this cottage is mesmerizing and ever changing. One afternoon as we rested in the hot tub after a long hike we spotted a ribbon of white on a distant mountain. A waterfall whose true height and breath could only be imagined. It's the kind of place where you wander outside in the dead of night just to savor the stars and to listen to the sounds of the nearby streams cascading toward the ocean. Even during the day the setting is very quiet and private. The landscaping is lush and unusual. There were many plants in bloom and we enjoyed watching the neighborhood birds and lizards.
The cottage was built with comfort in mind. There are louvers set low below windows on each side of the large sliders. These louvers provide all day ventilation that helps keep air moving. Warm air rises up to vent out from a large copula at the center of the open ceiling. We were always comfortable even on the hottest days.
We really appreciated the outdoor shower after visiting the beach or hiking a muddy trail. The were many hooks where we could hang items to dry. The bathroom was elegant and whimsical at the same time and even the indoor shower has a view. The washer and dryer were very handy. Both the inside and outside areas at this rental are well thought out, attractive and well cared for.
The location of this cottage is perfect for exploring the north shore beaches, trails and towns. After a busy day, coming back to this tranquil place to rest and plan our next adventure was perfect for us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Kauai. Tucked away in the mountains of a neighborhood in North Kauai this cute bungalow was a great stay. The only thing I would have liked was air conditioning at night and during the heat of the day, but honestly it wasnt bad at all. Overall, truly a magical experience. The star gazing at night was incredible!
Awesome hideaway, clean, cool and comfortable! No disappointments!
