Two cottages on this beach were used in filming. They can be rented from Hanalei Land Company for about $5,000 a week.
The Kauikeolani Estate in Hanalei belongs to the family of Kaui Hart Hemming, the author of The Descendants. It served as base camp during filming and can be rented for $15,000 a week.
The cast and crew of the Descendants stayed at the St. Regis Princeville. Several scenes were filmed at this newly renovated, elegant hotel.
The Tahiti Nui played itself in the movie. This restaurant and lounge is a great spot to stop to have a drink, food (the pizza is delicious) and relax as you enjoy the live music.
