The Lush Grounds of

River Estate

Kauai Vacation Rentals

River Estate will be your own private riverfront paradise that is completely unlike any other vacation property on the north shore of Kauai. You’ll feel at home as soon as you enter the property and that feeling will stay with you as a wonderful memory long after you depart. The property is located 2 blocks from a secluded beach which can be accessed by kayak or paddle board from tin front of your house. There is no other Kauai vacation rental property that offers this. Take a picnic down to a beach with no public parking and thus no other people on it. When the outside areas are crowded during peak times of the year you’ll always be able to go to a private beach and come home to your private refuge. River Estate is just removed enough to be totally peaceful and private yet very close to everything North Kauai is famous for and as such it’s very conveniently located for easy access to all activities and beaches. We offer a more traditional Hawaiian experience here. A spacious property in a wonderful natural setting where you can recharge and relax. We have provided this refuge to thousands of guests over the past 30 years.
