We stayed in The Love Shack and the Elvis Suite in 7/2017 over the course of 11 days. This was hands down the best vacation that my wife and I have ever been on. The island of Kauai felt like an imaginary island with its perfect beaches, mountain hiking trails and relative underdevelopment. Our stay at the Surfboard House could not have been more wonderful. Simon truly thought of everything when creating his suites. His suites are like mini museums with music memorabilia and after 5 nights in each room I still found myself noticing new items on the final day. I think it is easiest to list the highlights that made his place amazing:
-Simon, himself, absolutely wonderful man
-location directly across the street from Hanalei Bay
-incredibly comfortable California King beds
-all beach supplies supplied including beach towels, body boards, cooler, Tommy Bahama chairs, beach umbrella, beach mats
-complimentary Kauai whole bean coffee with grinder that made for excellent coffee
-complimentary local soap, shampoo and conditioner
-any kitchen appliance that I could imagine one would use
-fridge with ice maker
-BBQ grill on back patio
-efficient air conditioning with ceiling fans
-stunning plant life with beautiful landscaping on his entire property
My favorite aspect of The Love Shack was the outdoor shower which is completely private with a surrounding fence. I did not take a single shower inside for 6 days. We then moved to The Elvis Suite which was equally as nice and had both front and back patios.
Both suites had a washer/dryer just outside which was very convenient.
I don't believe that Simon could have made our experience any more special. If you are reading this and considering a stay at The Surfboard House I strongly encourage you to stop looking elsewhere and just book a suite with Simon.
