House, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8) TVNCU#1106 Kauai Approved Vacation home
About Anne Newman
We first fell in love with Kauai during our family's first visit in May, 1992. While my husband insisted we couldn't possibly leave our business for a two week vacation, I planned a week on Napili Bay on Maui and a second week on the South Shore of Kauai. In the middle of that second week, we ventured up to the North Shore. I can still remember the feeling as we first arrived at Hanalei Bay. 'Ahh, this is it!' I proclaimed, and, for us, it has remained so. The beauty of the Bay was so stunning it felt surreal. The lush green mountains were lined with waterfalls and the Bay seemed to stretch on forever. There was hardly anyone on the beach and no hotels down on the Bay. It felt as if we had gone back in time to the 'Old Hawaii' of my dreams. ...Plantation style homes dotting the beachfront with lots of wide open spaces... By 1996, we knew we would always want to come to Hanalei and we started looking to buy a home. We started renting the home that is now Paulele, but it was not for sale. We looked for 3 years at just about everything that came up for sale in Hanalei, but didn't like anything as much as this house. 'We need to trust', I told my husband. 'Have faith that if it's meant to be, it will happen'. Well, it did. Without ever going on the market, the previous owners finally succumbed to our persistence and sold us the home in 1999. We named it 'Paulele' which means to believe, have faith and trust. In Hanalei, magic happens. Come visit. We hope you enjoy our home and Hanalei as much as we do.
Anne Newman purchased this House in 1999
Why Anne Newman chose Hanalei
At Paulele, the beach is always just a few steps away any time of day. Whether an early morning stroll, a mid-day swim or surf, or a gorgeous sunset, it's all right out in front of you. If you need groceries or want to treat yourself to a dinner out, no need to get in the car. Just walk into town and it's all there. We love our location for these and many reasons!
What makes this House unique
We hope you enjoy the activities that we've offered right at Paulele. We love shuffleboard, horseshoes, bocce ball, badminton and croquet, so we have all of them right there for you to enjoy in our fantastic yard. Do you love to read? I do, so you'll find a bookshelf and hammock waiting for you. Plenty of deck space, both sunny and covered, for you to relax and a bamboo enclosed hot water shower that we built ourselves are other nice features. And can anyone really get away without wifi? It's there if you need it!

Hanalei beach house
We had an amazing time at this location- the house was exactly as described and perfect for multiple families! The location was amazing with a quick walk to beach or town, we stayed a week and were all wishing we could stay longer!! Communication with the owner was great and all questions were quickly answered.
Hope we will be back soon!
The house is in a perfect spot for access to the beach and the sights on the north side of the island. The house was clean, fully furnished, well-equipped as far as the kitchen and other amenities, and fully accommodated all of our family's needs. The property manager was easy to reach and responsive to questions and requests. A great place to stay in Hanalei!
Simply Outstanding In All Respects
Paulele is a stunning house--perfect for our family reunion with multiple lovely rooms and plenty of spaces to relax. It is in a perfect location just a short walk to Hanalei Bay Beach and to the town, and the Host is caring and professional--eager to make sure we had the best stay. Thank you!
Loved the house and location to the beach. Most of all it was equipped to the hilt! Only draw back was the heat. Not sure it is always this hot in August but it was unbearable in the house during the day. Maybe some sort of exhaust fan would help.
A superb stay
In a word, the property and its owner, Anne, are: thoughtful.
Every little detail is well thought out and mindful of nearly any type of vacationer. We were two families (4 kids) staying for 10 days and had a GREAT time exploring the island with this lovely house as our home base. It's spacious, comfortable, clean, and really well stocked with anything needed to relax and enjoy your time on Kauai.
Anne is super helpful and communicative and even checked in periodically to see if everything was a-ok. Indeed, it was. We loved playing shuffleboard, cooking dinners at the house, and frequenting the beach and the town's restaurants and shops - just a few minutes' walk from the house.
Lastly, for those first-timers to Kauai (we were) a piece of advice: bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper and enjoy sleeping past 4am. Roosters abound.
Two Thumbs Up!
From start to finish, this was a dream property! The owner was accommodating in every way and even helped us think through sleeping arrangements since we were traveling with little ones. Access to beach and town was great with provided bikes, and strollers but we mostly walked. I highly recommend Paulele House (and already have, in fact!).
World class surfing on Hanalei Bay (ocean conditions permitting), Hiking (the famous NaPali Coast trail head is only 15 minutes away!), Shuffleboard (onsite), Horseshoes, Zip Lines, ATV rentals, Water tubing, Kite surfing, boat tours, botanical gardens, horseback riding, helicopter tours & more nearby. All shops and restaurants of Hanalei town are a short walk away.
