  • Exceptional property!

    "What a beautiful spot! We practically lived on the balcony, saw turtles and whales everyday. The condo was very clean, comfy and beautifully decorated. We were 4 adults and had plenty of room. The kitchen was small, but nicely updated and very functional. Location is perfect, easy walk to beach, surf shop and Brenike's restaurant."

  • Excellent Property - exceeded expectations

    "Our stay at the Ginger Beach House was terrific! There was plenty of space for two families of 4 (41-8 years old). We were often the only people on the breach at Anahola Bay. The waves were perfect for boogie boarding and on one end of the bay the water is very calm for it is protects by a reef. The reef is also a great spot to snorkel! We spent several of our days just relaxing on the beach and enjoying the property. We loved that the home had everything we needed from garbage bags to laundry detergent. The kitchen was fully stocked with quality cookware. We grilled fresh fish on the gas grill almost every night and ate at the large outdoor table. We hope to travel to Kauai again soon and stay at the Ginger Beach House again!"

  • Convenient Location

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We stayed in a one bedroom condo on the 3rd floor. The unit was very clean and comfortable with well stocked kitchen. Since the unit is facing the pool, it did get noisy at times with children enjoying the pool. The ocean view was limited. The Kapaa location was perfect for what we wanted to do - not too far of a drive to the north or south end of Kauai. There are many restaurants close by and grocery store and Starbucks across the street. Very convenient."

  • Great haven on Kauai

    "We truly enjoyed our first trip to Kauai. We are adventurous hikers and Hale Keo was a great retreat to come back to each evening. Its central location made it easy to see all the island has to offer as well as reach many of the trailheads. We appreciated being away from the congested areas of town, but still had all we could have needed within a very short distance. Hale Keo is well equipped from kitchen to beach equipment. We only stayed a week, but would have felt comfortable staying much longer. The hosts, Lorraine and Luis were very accomodating hosts while still giving us our privacy. We had a beautiful visit to Kauia and to Hale Keo. Thank You."
