Hanalei Trading Co. – Beach Gear Rentals – Kauai
Looking for beach gear rentals in Princeville? You are in luck because my friends, Andrea and Kevin, have opened a Concession Desk at the Bali Hai Villas, walking distance from our vacation rental, Honu Point. I stopped by today to check it out and I was impressed with how much merchandise was available in a fairly small space. They have a lot of gear for rent, as well as some pretty cute souvenirs.
Lisa was there to show me around. The rental equipment includes snorkel equipment, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, life vests, coolers, surfboards, stand up paddle boards (SUP), and bikes. Each item rents by the day or by the week. When returned, the items are washed down for the next renter. Everything I saw looked like new! Plenty of sizes available too. The SUPs and surfboards come with roof cushions and straps for your rental car transportation.
Besides rentals, Hanalei Trading Co. has a variety of useful items that you may have not thought to bring with you to the island. Water bottles (no need to buy water in those plastic containers), rash guards, hats, suntan lotion, sun glasses, and towels are available for purchase. And, one can not help but notice the cute souvenirs, perfect to take home as a reminder of Paradise, or to give to a special loved one. There are stickers, postcards, funny signs, and stuffed animals. I got a chuckle out of the sign that says, “Chickens. The pet that poops breakfast.” We love our chickens on Kauai!

Hanalei Trading Co.’s Sister Store in Hanalei

It is the first store on the left, just past Postcards restaurant. Although they also have rentals, the store is packed with much more merchandise. You will find lots of women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing, along with other accessories. There is something for everyone.

So, whether you are looking for beach gear rentals in Princeville or Hanalei, Hanalei Trading Co. is a great option. Many vacation rentals supply some of these items, but if not, you will probably be able to find what you need at one of these locations. Why use precious suitcase space to bring these items from home? Renting beach gear, rather than buying, helps keep the landfill on our precious island from filling up. If you go to either store, I am guessing you might also find a few extra items you just can’t resist to buy. Enjoy your time on the Garden Island.
