Ocean Front view. Unobstructed and private.
1560 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Jo
6 Guests . 2 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms


If there is paradise on earth, it is at wonderful Anini Beach. Our home is located about 3 miles down Anini Beach Road, away from Anini Park and the crowds that gather or camp there. Rise with the sun and walk for miles on the beach, swim in the warm waters right in front of the house, bicycle, skate, windsurf, kayak, and hike to your hearts content.
This is a private home situated in a cove, that has approximately 1550 square feet of living area. The two bedrooms are separated from one another for total privacy. The master suite has an attached bathroom; the second bedroom is located right next to the second bath. Our kitchen is outstanding, with new appliances, and has a view that most homes at Anini Beach wish for.
Born and raised in Northern California, I married a 'local haole boy' and became immediately enamored with Kauai, most especially with Anini Beach. I spent my honeymoon there 40 years ago. It is one of the most romantic places I have ever been to. My husband was born in Honolulu and raised on Kauai, mostly at Anini, and we spent the summers and holidays there with our daughters. Our oldest has twin daughters and they have started their own Anini tradition. It is a wonderful place to spend vacation time with your children, which is what Hawaiian culture is all about. What makes my home unique: Waking with the sun rise, coffee and a walk on the beach, incredible sunsets during most of the summer months, watching for the 'green flash' from our deck, usually no waves on the beach to worry about, helping your little ones feed the crabs at dusk, reef walking at low tide, being able to let your children run on the beach most months without worry. Peaceful relaxation. And, better yet, no steep stairs to climb for entry, for those of us with wobbly legs or small children.
Once you book our little piece of Kauai Paradise, I will send you information that I hope will make your trip more fun, with information on where to shop, out of the way places to eat, and other tidbits that will give you an insider’s glimpse of where you are headed. I love Kauai and Anini Beach and enjoy sharing my knowledge and home with those who want a memorable vacation in Paradise with their family. Anini Beach is one of the most beautiful spots on earth.
After devastating Hurricane Iniki, I did search and rescue with the San Jose Mercury News for 6 weeks, locating 'missing' family members, and delivering tools, building materials, money, and notes of love from Mainland family and friends. I also did fund-raising for the Seniors and children in the little town of Kilauea, making Christmas and the new year a little brighter. It was one of the most humbling experiences in my life.

You may also search for my daughters on this site: Julie Chisholm, PhD, or Wendy Chisholm. Sometimes it helps to know who you are doing business with before renting a vacation home for the first time. (A licensed, full time CA Real Estate Broker, BRE 00633697, since 1978).
