About the neighbourhood
Equidistant and in walking distance from Hanalei Bay and/or town.
Located In a quiet cul-de-sac sandwiched between the main Kuhio two lane road and the little neighborhood road of Weke. Surf, snorkel or beach walk nearby.
Getting around
After you tire of walking to nearby Hanalei Bay and/or town you might want to hire a car.

Am a minimalist but a rental car is a good idea.

Physical Address: 5278 Malolo Place, Hanalei, HI 96714

Direction to find the Rainbow House
Hanalei is around a 45 minute drive north of Lihue.

From the main airport in Lihue, you will exit on Ahukini Rd. (#570). Turn right at the stop light and go North on Kapule Hwy. (#51).

After a mile, it ends at a stop light, joining Hwy. 56 (Kuhio Hwy.).

From the airport to Hanalei is more or less an hour. You might find your best grocery shopping at the Safeway in Kapa'a about seven miles North.

After Princeville, the route number changes to 560 and you will drop down into the Hanalei Valley and be faced with a rusty one lane iron bri...
