Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The pictures don't do Ka Ehu Kai justice--simply put: this gorgeous, two-story home (3bds, 2bas) is not lacking in beauty, amenities, or comfort. Light pours in from the expansive number of windows, as well as the skylights. And with so many windows, you can hear those waves crashing on the shore from any room in the house. The spacious wrap-around porch is perfect for ocean-watching, especially during sunrise/sunset. The yard is frequented by chickens, as well as plenty of geckos. We ate a lot of our at-home meals on the porch while enjoying the sights and sounds of the beach. In fact, I enjoyed my morning coffee on the porch and came to know the local surfers. Upon our arrival, the home was immaculate and very inviting after that long flight! Bali Hai Reality left us with a thoughtful gift, as well as all of the local area and house information we could possibly need. The dryer was broken, but Bali Hai offered to launder our clothes at no cost. That’s great customer service! So what could have been a down point was actually an opportunity to feel good about our choice. In addition to being just steps away from the Bay, it's a 5-min walk to Hanalei's main street; make sure you visit the local shops and restaurants—while simple, Hanalei has everything you need. And take time to get the locals; Hanalei is a small community (about 700 people), and the locals are incredibly gracious, fun-loving, and social people. Some reviewers complained about public beach noise…locals gather nearby for a sense of community and to enjoy the surf. While Ka Ehu Kai may be your rental, Hanalei is their home. In our opinion, the noise was infrequent and totally acceptable. If you want absolute silence and privacy, go elsewhere. Worth every penny, we will rent Ka Ehu Kai again. In fact, we wanted to buy it. Couldn't be happier with our choice, and Bali Hai made everything easy. Kudos to their fantastic staff!"
