"This was my 4th trip to Shangril La and I continue to be more and more delighted with each stay. This is a truly remarkable home, so much so that every time I want to go to Hawaii, it's hard to imagine staying anywhere else.
- It's a short walk to an incredible, kid friendly beach that is always empty
- It's super private and is on an 10+ acres of immaculately maintained land with flowers, trees, a hot tub, a pool with a waterfall
- The house is super comfortable, nicely decorated and has a ton of covered outdoor deck space
- It's in a beautiful, peaceful area that's convenient to both the North and the East shores
If you are looking for a peaceful place to get away that's walking distance to a beach, you will be hard pressed to find a better one at any price in Hawaii. Can't say enough good things about the home."

"I stayed at this beautiful home in Moloaa Bay for 9 nights with wife, daughter, and mother. The stay was perfect with no complaints at all except I wish my stay never ended. The grounds around the house were perfect for my daughter to play and the beach across the street was the best on Kauai. No crowds and perfect for swimming. Super nice trail to the left and perfect swimming to the right. Looking forward to coming back."

"My fiancée and I have traveled extensively. Moments after checking in, my fiancé thanked me for booking "the best vacation rental." Kauai is magical and Moloa'a Bay is no exception. Ocean views from the house are spectacular, particularly during sunrise, but the real lure of this house is it's unmatched character. The interior design is beautiful: entirely wooden architecture, vaulted ceilings, stained glass and unique detail one might categorize as 'retro,' only this house is the real deal. It is bright, airy and filled with the sound of the surf. We loved the seclusion. The house is situated amongst a cluster of homes at the end of a dirt road, 10 minutes from the main road, but the location is still conveniently 20 mins from Princeville/ Hanalei Bay in the north, as well as Kapa'a town in the east.
Our Kauai vacation consisted of three locations and this one was by far the best. We loved wandering on the beach and exploring beyond. I will add the owner was always available and helpful with questions I had about the property/surrounding area. I only wish the second floor were available for a group of friends to bring back!"

"We chose Moloa'a Bay because we wanted to swim and snorkel without having to drive and we chose Pama Hale for the price and past reviews. We chose wisely! The home is wonderful!! As soon as you enter, you can see why people love this place--it's all windows! With all of the trees around, it seems very secluded and you feel like you're in a tree house. The deck off the back of the house is so peaceful and with the nice table and comfortable chairs, this is the perfect place to enjoy your meals and just relax. We ate all of our meals, except one (downpour), outside. Plus, with the house and deck being built on stilts, we were able to leave the doors open all night to get a nice cross breeze. I especially like the fact that I could sneak out my door and across the deck to the kitchen to make coffee each morning without having to go through any other rooms or risk waking anyone.
The beach is just a 5 minute walk from the house and is very private. The most people we saw in one day was about a dozen and we were at the beach often. A small storm came through while we were there so, on days when the surf was too rough to snorkel, we swam. One morning I was even able to get my daughter up early enough to watch the sunrise. Incredible!!! Then, when you return from the beach, you can rinse off in the outdoor shower. Did I mention it has hot water??!
We had such a great time here and Christel is wonderful! She showed us around when we first arrived and told us about the fruit trees that we had access to. We actually arrived an hour earlier than check in and she was worried we might be disappointed that she hadn't had a chance to put fresh flowers in the house. (We weren't.) We went to town to get our groceries and when we returned...fresh flowers! We returned from other outings to find surprises from her at the front door--fruit bowl, extra dish liquid, beach umbrella. She's very thoughtful and made the check in/out very easy.
Susanne is also great! The entire reservation process went smoothly and the cleaning deposit was returned very quickly.
We even made new friends--Rufus the jungle chicken, and Jeremiah the bullfrog (I didn't name him, my daughter did) although my family would have appreciated them waiting until a bit later in the morning to begin their daily communications.
My family and I are planning to return to Moloa'a Bay and would love to stay at Pama Hale again!!!
