Excellent in every way
"My wife and I stayed in both houses during the ten days we were here, and they were both extremely clean, comfortable, with wi-fi, air conditioning and all the modern amenities you could want in spite of the fact that it is in a jungle on an small island in the middle of the friggin ocean!! Oh, how I wish I was there right now. A part of us never left and yearn to go back asap."

"My wife and I stayed at the Kolohala Studio in Haena for 8 nights in June. It was always a welcoming and comfortable place to stay at the end of the our days of hiking and snorkeling on the north side of the island. We ate breakfasts, ate our dinners, and had drinks on the quiet back patio looking out onto the mountains and field of horses. Blood pressure dropped; it felt as if you had Haena all to yourself. The studio was very clean, spacious, and had all the accommodations we needed. There were times we were so comfortable we had to remind ourselves we should get up and go do something outside the property because our time (of course) was limited and we wanted to experience as much as we could. Whether we took a left at the end of Alamihi Drive to go the short distance to Tunnels Beach, Kee Beach, or the Kalalau Trail...or whether we took a right to venture into Hanalei or Kilauea, the location of Kolohala is perfect. We felt we had all of what the north side of Kauai had to offer at our disposal. Joe, the groundskeeper, was around a little bit to prune some of the vegetation. He offered some great insight on the island and pointed out a few places to check out. The building and grounds were beautifully kept by him and his wife. If you are looking for a tranquil, private place to stay on the north side, this place is for you. It is a great value for the money, and I hope it stays that way, because people like my wife and I appreciate it. We didn't want a "resort" experience, plus we simply can't afford that. We wanted to blend in, respect and understand some of the lifestyles of the locals, and get a little taste of what "old Hawaii" might be like. We got it. And we felt very sad when we had to leave. Hopefully, we will get an opportunity to come back and pick up where we left off. I would stay here again if the chance were to surface. Aloha!"

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.
Wonderful vacation. Location is an "A," but not an A+ given that it is next to the beach parking lot. But this is only the slightest of inconveniences, and shouldn't deter anyone from staying here. House itself is wonderful."

"My teenage son and I celebrated our graduations here and had an amazing time. We had breakfast every morning on the deck looking out over the river and mountain, it was amazing. The outdoor shower was amazing and we were so glad there were boogey boards because we found a great beach for them. The location is perfect if you want to be away from the throngs of people but still close to everything on the North Shore. We brought our own snorkel gear, but could have gone without it - the ones supplied were just as good as ours!
I highly recommend Bubba's Burgers in Hanlei for cheaper, amazing food - they use locally grown beef which is awesome.
We managed to avoid any mosquitos (lucky?) and ants, and greatly enjoyed watching the resident chicken and her babies....
It was like living in a jungle for 4 days - AMAZING. I would HIGHLY recommend:>)"
