“The single most amazing vacation rental I have ever stayed at.”
"My family and I had the privilege of staying at this property in Feb 2015. There were six of us – my wife, myself, and our four children, age 8 to 16.
There are so many amazing things about this property I really don’t know where to start. First is the location. The five acres make you feel pretty much like you have all of Kauai to yourself, and yet, just a few hundred yards away you are on the road and near whatever you may want to be near to.
The photos of the grounds and the house are certainly not “cherry picked” photos – the whole place is just wonderful beyond words. In spite of their lavish description of the property, they actually under-sell it. The house is fab-u-lous. Just absolutely amazing. It has pretty much everything you could possibly want. I think my favorite part was all the stuff in the garage. Bikes. Snorkeling gear. Pool toys. Tons of stuff. Just tons of it. All neatly arranged and organized.
No wait, I think my favorite part was the upstairs kitchen. Every appliance, every utensil, many of the basics. Just everything, all neatly arranged.
Actually, hold on… my favorite part is the outside. Exercise equipment (tons!), the pool, the hot tub. The koi pond. The fruit trees. The … Well you get the idea.
Oh, even the Internet was fast! I know… we were supposed to be on vacation… Fast Internet at these places never happens.
I know reading a pile of gushing reviews always causes one to say, “Come on – there has to be something wrong with the place…” so I have been trying to come up with something to balance out the overall wonderfulness of the place. Hmmmm. That is hard. I know: Perhaps it would be better if they had big sacks of hundred dollar bills in each room as a welcoming present… Hmmm. Yeah, that is about the best I can do.
My wife has dietary issues, so we always stay in homes on vacations. We’ve stayed at some pretty nice places. Some really nice places, actually. But nothing, and I mean nothing, comes close to this Ke Aloha. It is a masterpiece."

"My 16 year old daughter and I enjoyed 6 nights in early April in Sunrise cottage. We loved every minute of it. The cottage and beautiful surroundings create such a feeling of well being that set the tone for our vacation from the moment we arrived. We loved waking up in the morning to tropical birds(ok the occasional rooster but you're not going to escape that in Kauai unless you barricade yourself in a hotel and keep all your windows closed)and sitting outside with coffee, admiring the gorgeous flowers which surround the cottage. Many, many beaches are within minutes drive so it's easy to go for a few hours, come back to relax and read and go out to the beach late afternoon again. An extremely well stocked, large supermarket is in Princeville which makes cooking in the cottage very easy. Several good places to eat within very easy driving distance and the bird and whale watching at 5 minute away Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge is terrific. This was our first time to Kauai and I wouldn't stay any other place than the North Shore. The beauty is just overwhelming and our stay in the cottage was perfect!!"

"My husband and I stayed at Hale Kokio for our honeymoon and it was perfection. Quiet and private, with amazing views of tropical greenery. The cottage is so cute and has everything you could possibly need. Personal favorites were the hot tub and grill! We really appreciated the laundry machines too!
The property owners/managers were very easy to work with and incredibly sweet.
You can't beat the location! On such a small island, nothing is too far, but Hale Kokio was close to everything we needed. Absolutely recommend if you're a self-sufficient traveler who doesn't need a maid service.
Pro-tip: Bring ear plugs. Roosters are all over Hawaii!"

"My wife & I had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this cottage. The kitchen is grand with all the utensils need and a nice BBQ. The bedroom is bright and airy. Catharine & Allan are wonderful to chat with about local things to do. We hope to go back someday soon!"
