Before you go further or register to book, know that our Hanalei property is located in a tsunami evacuation zone.

In case of tsunami or any other natural disaster here are the steps in seeking higher ground.

Hurricane or Tsunami Evacuation Plan and Route

FROM: Rainbow House : (5278 Malolo Place, Hanalei, HI 96714)
TO:  Princeville/Hanalei Fire Station  (5-4390 Kuhio Hwy, Princeville, HI 96722)

Know that there is a monthly testing of the statewide outdoor warning siren system which is done in conjunction with a test of the live audio broadcast segment of the emergency alert system at 11:45 a.m. on the first county/state government workday of the month.

If you hear the siren at any other time than the first workday of the month and siren keeps sounding please tune into your radio for further information.

For tsunami and hurricanes, present weather science allows us several hours of warning.

Place necessary possessions in your car and drive out Malolo Place to Malolo Road and take a left to Kuhio Hwy (#560). On Kuhio Highway take another left East.

Keep driving east until you cross the Hanalei River Bridge and gain the bluffs of Princeville and you get to the Hanalei/Princeville Fire Station where you can get further information.

In case of hurricane you may want to find accommodations further from the beach and bay or seek a Red Cross Shelter.
