"We arrived the Hunts' home depleted from a very heavy year of work. From the moment we arrived we were able to relax and unwind. The home was very comfortable and beautifully appointed. The expansive grounds were a delight to look out at, dine in, and explore through each day. Such a treat to pick fresh fruit as we went! Steve was most gracious and attentive and completely available for guidance as we desired. We were looking for a place to relax, that would facilitate family time, and which was removed from standard tourist fare. We got just that and then also were able to take advantage of all the great restaurants and beaches in the near vicinity at our own pace. A truly fantastic experience!"

"My husband and I were going to Kauai for the third time, and had always stayed on the south side of the island. We thought it would be fun to mix it up and stay 5 nights on the north side and selected this lovely retreat to for our stay. The room was neat and clean, the bathroom huge and the lanai a great place to sit and relax. The only drawback for me was the bugs. The critters thought I made a tasty snack and feasted on me all night. At the end of the five days my legs looked like I had small pox! Take bug spray. There is plenty to do and see on the north side. There are several wonderful beaches to snorkel at and we swam with the turtles at Annini Beach. There are plenty of places to eat, and the food is not unreasonably priced. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful (except their kitty killed a chicken...on the lanai!!) get-away. Oh yes, be prepared for the geckos too. The lizards are everywhere and make the most alarming sound in the middle of the night!! Mahalo for opening your house to us, we loved our stay!"

"During our 8 day Kauai vacation we decided to stay at three different places so we could get a feel for each different area. If we could do it all over again (which we plan to do as soon as possible!) we would have spent our entire trip at this beautiful spot! It's close to everything, it's in a safe and quiet neighborhood, everything in the house is well-decorated and clean and Judy was easy to work with and super helpful!"

"We stayed at Makale’a Palms in 2013 and loved it so much that we decided to return this year! Makale’a Palms is by far the most beautiful and peaceful place we have ever stayed. I truly struggle to find the words to express just how much we love it!! Shawn and Doreen literally thought of every detail when they designed this home. We were greeted with an amazing welcome basket, card and beautiful fresh flowers upon our arrival. The bags of nuts from Kauai Nut Roasters were delicious! Some of the things we really enjoy about the house are eating breakfast out on the lanai, relaxing in the hot tub at the end of the day, the fully stocked kitchen, listening to Jack Johnson on the surround sound stereo, the comfort of the beds, the openness of the house and the breeze that comes through, the awesome steam shower and the privacy of the property. We also really appreciate all the beach gear they provide such as chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, coolers and towels. We love the location of the property. It’s close to all of our favorite beaches and restaurants. I could go on and on about how wonderful Makale’a Palms is, but you have to see it in person to truly appreciate its beauty. We look forward to going back next year!!"
