Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We recently spent 3 weeks in this beautiful home nestled alongside the river and a very short walk to the beach. We loved being so close to Hanalei, our favorite place in Hawaii, as well as being in nature. For those that love to be away from the tourist traps, this place is perfect. Had fun floating down the river to the beach, listening to the birds singing day and night, and enjoying the immaculate property. The property was very clean and well-maintained. We were celebrating a 60th and 65th birthday with friends and family who came and went during our 3 week stay. They all loved it as well. The drawbacks were 1) the bugs and mosquitoes (you will need to drench yourself in bug spray); 2) the pack of barking dogs who gave us a daily concert between 6 to 9 PM every night for three weeks; 3) the sensation of being in an earthquake whenever anyone walks across the floor (the house is high above the ground on stilts and shakes quite a bit, but you do get used to it after a few days). REMAX in Princeton was very slow to respond to requests (freezer wasn't working, no smoke detectors which are needed as there is only one exit from the house), but they did eventually respond after a week and a half. The house was large enough for 7 of us, with plenty of space for all. Your cell phones will not work here, except for texting, but wifi was consistent. We switched to the web based Viber and were able to make calls to folks back home. Overall, it was a terrific place to stay, but a little too many drawbacks for us to book it again--especially the swarms of mosquitoes and bugs.
