Kekaha condo description
A short walk or bike to 15+ miles of nearly deserted white sand beach. Yes, just picture yourself in paradise. That's where you'll be when you enjoy an unforgettable vacation at 'Hale Kekaha', our only premium ocean front unit, just 26 miles from the Lihue Airport, and a world away from the maddening crowds. With an average annual rainfall of less than 20 inches, you can almost guarantee yourself a sunny vacation... regardless of the time of the year. Why gamble with your vacation, by staying on the North Shore, where rain can be all too common? Swimming, surfing, sunbathing, watching the sunset whatever your pleasure, you'll find yourself living a dream as you marvel that anyplace on earth can be so perfect.
This non-smoking plantation style unit is located near Waimea Canyon (the Grand Canyon of the Pacific) and Barking Sands Beach, with convenient access to restaurants, movie theater, shops, markets, and the famous Jo-Jo's shave ice. The condo-style unit has been recently remodeled and redecorated by a well known designer, and is loaded with amenities that will make you feel instantly at home. Quality furniture and linens, tile floors, and lots of windows to take in that view. One bedroom has a king bed, and the second bedroom has two double beds, which are much roomier than those standard twin beds you find elsewhere.
There is a gas BBQ to make it a pleasure to cook at home.
This is no tourist trap. There are no hotel resorts, no vendors hawking cheap souvenirs. Just an endless expanse of pristine beach and warm surf and spectacular sunsets, with friendly people who offer the 'spirit of aloha' with each greeting. It's like traveling back in time to the Hawaii of yesteryear, the perfect getaway from the cares of everyday life.
Swaying coconut palms, balmy breezes, sandy beaches, warm ocean water, and days of sunshine. All the ingredients for a perfect ocean side vacation in Kauai, at Hale Kekaha.

The PERFECT Kauai Island Home Away from Home
The PERFECT Kauai Island Home Away from Home
We just completed a wonderful week at the Hale Kekaha home. We were looking for a quiet island location to just kick back and relax. We found the perfect location at Hale Kekaha. We arrived in the dark on Friday night. Even in the dark you could feel the warmth and friendlyness of the home. The living area seating was very comfortable. From the living area we were able to plan our next days adventure and rest from the current days activities. The internet allowed us to stay in touch with family and friends. Each day we were able to post pictures of our daily events so everyone could immediately see what an amazing time we were having. The master bedroom bed was so comfortable it beckoned you to jump in to rest for the next day. From the master bedroom you could hear the waves crashing on the rocks accross the street. Most of our activities were on the western part of Kauai, so the location was perfect. Resturants, grocery store and morning expresso were a short 5 minutes away. At the local farmers market on Saturday we purchased apple bananas that were very tasty and egg plant that melted in your mouth. We used the kitchen for breakfast, cooking vegtables and re-heating of left over lunches/dinners. We used the community gas grill to cook fresh ahi and the amberjack we caught that day. The other families staying at the same location we looking for the same relaxing vacation we were. Everyone was extremely friendly. We were fortunate that the owners Jim and Sally were there during our stay. They checked with us several times to insure we were comfortable and to provide assistance in any way they could. On our last day we were able to see whales breeching from our front porch. For us this was the vacation of a lifetime. We WILL return in the near future and hope that we can be guests of Jim and Sally again.

If you want to experience Kauai away from the crowds this lovely home in Kekaha is THE place! It's spotlessly clean, right across the street from the ocean & you can listen to the waves through the night :- ) The Sandy beach is just a short walk west and you have both front and back yards to enjoy palm trees, hammock, lounge chairs and Island breezes. The road's in front, but behind coconut palms & shrubs and the sunsets there are amazing! Our contacts were with Mgr. Scott & Cindy who were both friendly, helpful & efficient. Try to be there Sat. @ 9 to walk to the park for a great small Farmers Mkt. Tons of beach toys are in the garage as well as laundry facilities and bikes to borrow! Extra beach towels, all the kitchen things we needed, lovely décor--I can't praise it enough--our only regret was not staying longer!

Cute little condo
Cute little condo
We stayed in this house for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. The pictures are exactly how the house looks. House was super clean and had everything we needed. Very low key area. The cars/trucks driving by can be loud but goes away after work hours. There are bicycles and all kinds of equipment that renters are free to use, which was great! We went to the grocery store to get our food, both markets are fairly expensive. My hubby fished across the street. No fishing license needed. If you want to go for a nice dinner, you might have to drive quite a ways to Kalaheo or Poipu. There are some delicious dive spots nearby (Island Taco & Bobbie's) in Hanapepe and Waimea also that are open for lunch. Friday nights, Hanapepe has art shows which was pretty fun. Highly recommend staying here.

Away from the crowds
Away from the crowds
We intentionally chose this location as we haven't stayed on this part of the Island and like to be away from crowds. This certainly fit the bill for us. The unit is spotlessly clean inside with comfortable furniture and beds . The kitchen has absolutely everything you could wish for and is spacious. We had wifi that worked well and a flat screen TV in the living room. The view of the ocean is fabulous and my husband just had to cross the road to do some fishing with a rod that we found in the garage treasure trove of beach gear. There isn't a beach across the road but there is one a little further down where we watched magnificent sunsets. The ocean was a bit too rough to swim while we were there but not far to go to Baby beach (not crowded) in Poipu. The supermarket in Waimea is a better bet than the one closer to Kekaha. Bobbies in Hanapepe is a great little take-out restaurant for a quick meal. The unit has AC in the main bedroom only so got a bit warm in the living room even with the fans going. In the evening we had to sit in the dark with the doors open to get a breeze. If the lights were on, insects came zooming in. A fly screen on the doors would be a great improvement. The main road can get busy at times but was quieter over the weekend. Scott of Hawaii Beach Home Rentals was a pleasure to deal with during the booking process and answered all our questions without delay.

We recently stayed at Hale Kekaha and found it to be very clean and comfortable. There was always a nice breeze. We recommend it for couples. Parking can be challenging if all of the units are occupied. You do not need to pack lots due to the availability of a washer/dryer. A large family stayed behind us with four cars. The beach view is now gone, as the locals tell it by shifting currents. However, less than 1/4 of mile walk and there is a beach at the county park or a short drive to Salt Pond Park where a reef protects the beach. A few homeless people there but they do not bother you. A 25 minute drive out beyond the Naval Center there is a park in the middle of nowhere next to the cliffs with miles of beaches. Be mindful of your vehicle there, some break-ins do occur. Keep plenty of water with you at all times. It was in the mid to upper 80's and the island breeze will fool you as to how much fluid you are actually loosing. We loved the West-side - laid back in true Hawaiian style so plan to eat early if eating out; the sidewalks fold up around 6 pm. The farther you travel east, the more bustling the island becomes so be mindful of the time. The east is lush green due to all of the rain and the west is dry due to the mountains. Wal-Mart is in Lihue and easy to drive to as well as the mall which has a real nice food court where you may eat some local cuisine. There is a grocery store in each town. There are plenty of things to see and do. Drive to the west side and drive along and up the Waimea Canyon - the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. It was easy to sleep with the waves crashing off the sea wall and the evening breezes. We took the Napli Coast tour with Kauai Sea Tours and enjoyed that immensely. We highly recommend it; lots of turtles, spinner dolphins and maybe a Monk Seal or two. Everything is a little pricey but, it is an island. Five days is not long enough to see all the island has to offer. Chickens are everywhere!

Owner response: We have not had a problem in this area with car break ins. However, it is possible anywhere, and you need to use good judgement when leaving your car. Do not leave valuables in the car, in fact, we generally leave the car open and unlocked. During your stay, there was a family attending a wedding, and it was an unusual situation, as there were many local people who came to visit. This is not normally a problem, and we are sorry that you may have been inconvenienced by the number of cars.
The place was beautiful and only steps away from the beach. We felt at home and truly relaxed compared to the hustle and bustle of staying at a hotel. The units were roomy, kept nicely and well stocked. When we go back to Kauai we will definitely be staying there again!

Excellent place; highly recommendable. Perfect location for a vacation like you see on postcards: uncrowded beach (out the front door), majestic mountains, privacy, activities, pretty much anything you could want. We had a wonderful time there.

We had a great time, on the beach everyday. It really is just across the road. Very nice little community. Not to far from the larger cities. Very quiet except for the traffic at times. Mostly hear the waves on a great beach. Place is like new.

This place was AWESOME! It has a beautiful view and the beach is right in front you! The beach is not crowded at all and has wonderful white clean sand. The place is newly remodeled, so everything is very clean. It provides a great place to get away. And Kauai was a great island to visit. I will definitely be going back and staying at Hale Kekaha!

My wife and I had such a relaxing time. Just a few steps to the white pristine quiet beach. The rental was newly remodeled and very clean. It was close to Waimea Canyon. Such a beautiful island. Can't wait to come back. We will definitly stay here again.
