♥ I have lived on Kauai for 50 years now, owned and managed River Estate since 1995. I provide complimentary concierge services to all my guests from the moment you book. So please feel free to ask me about all Kauai has to offer and let me help you make the most of your vacation time here. Let me be your personal concierge. Whatever you need I'll arrange for you. Need good solid local information? My 50 years of local experience here can be put to good use anytime you want. I enjoy helping people. It's my job.... I visited Kauai in 1970 and stayed on and basically never left. The charming people of Kauai and the exquisite beauty enticed me from my very first days on the island and I'm grateful every day to be blessed to live in such a wonderful healthy environment amongst such wonderful people and such a vibrant culture. I enjoy helping people and I'm available to my guests on a 24/7 basis. It's an honor and a privilege to be able to serve my guests by providing my home to so many of them and helping them to discover the wonders of this magical place. Fortunately I'm able to say that this place is still the paradise I found so many years ago. Mahalo and Aloha.

Why Mark chose Wainiha
River Estate is a completely unique experience. The property location on North Kauai is in arguably one of the nicest areas of the whole state and quite possibly the world. Because there had always been interest in short term renting here I decided to turn both homes into a vacation rentals. There are certain places on the island and in Hawaii that are so special that people from all over the world have heard about them and have a desire to visit them. Not only is Kauai so very special, I believe Hanalei and the surrounding area is the very best Kauai has to offer. Although I have lived here for 50 years I have not forgotten the feelings I first felt when I arrived here. These are the experiences that lock this place in peoples hearts and minds and keeps bringing them back. It isn't the things you do here but the actual island itself, it's charm and it's local people that bring visitors back time and time again.
What makes this house unique
The primary benefits of River Estate are the seclusion and privacy of the expansive botanical gardens and its special location in the scheme of things here on the north shore of Kauai. It's very close to all the world famous beaches north Kauai is noted for and central between Hanalei and the end of the road at Ke'e Beach yet its very private and secluded. You'll relax and rejuvenate your spirit here. The fact you can use the river to access the beach from the house and ocean is not offered by any other vacation rental on Kauai. The privacy and natural setting allow our guests to experience a truly relaxing and rewarding time away from their normal lives and leaves a lasting impression of what some consider to be true paradise. Not many rental homes are kept in the condition that the Guest House is kept in and our guests reflect that in their reviews. We're proud of that. It's our stock in trade so to speak. The property proximity to the spectacular natural attractions of North Kauai and its quiet natural setting help it to stand out among the other rental properties in the area. Come see for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
