"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!!"

"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!!"

"We loved the Jungle Bee. You have to walk a fair distance down a hill to the beach, but it is a breathtakingly beautiful beach. I was worried that the location would be too remote, but ended up loving the seclusion. It was a wonderful break from the other touristy locations. The main house is very comfortable and the place where we did a fair amount of cooking in the spacious, well appointed kitchen. The additional cottage was a real treat - something special. Two adults and two teenagers were all very happy with the choice."

"My wife and I absolutely loved staying here for our honeymoon! The accommodations are stunning and very comfortable. The view of the garden from the claw-foot tub is relaxing. We also really loved feeding our fruit and veggie scraps to Milk the goat and Petunia the pig, watching the peacocks in our backyard with their chicks, and looking up at the infinite stars at night. The location at the end of a quiet road outside of Kiluaea could not have been better. We could easily go into Hanalei or Princeville for dinner, or zip to the other side of the island to explore Waimea Canyon or a helicopter tour out of Lihue. Cannot recommend this place enough!"
