"Hale Ho'opio is an amazing place of extraordinary beauty, serenity, and comfort, providing great relaxation and sanctuary for body and soul. It is elegantly appointed with wide open spaces and stunning panoramic views of the mountains. The views from the living room, screen porch, and lanai are so jawdroppingly beautiful that you could just sit all day and be bathed in the glory of nature without even going outside. The layout is very conveniently designed, so that there is easy access to everything you need. There is plenty of ventilation from ceiling fans in almost every room and screen doors to the spacious lanai and the delightful screen porch.
I have stayed here every year for the past four summers and wish I could live here year round. It is truly my home away from home. Maren is an absolute pleasure to deal with, very responsive and caring to her repeat clientele, always welcoming me back with fresh bouquets of flowers and special treats from the garden. The property manager is terrific, incredibly kind, helpful, and always willing to be of service, and the home and grounds are maintained in pristine condition.
This is truly a heavenly place situated in its own private corner of paradise, the north shore of Kauai, one of the most beautiful and sacred sites in the world. The breathtaking splendor of Na Pali, Ke'e Beach, Hanalei Bay, and Anini is just literally minutes away."

"It's an amazing place all around.
Three generations of our family (6 adults, 2 children) stayed at Hale Makana for 9 days. Aside from the absolutely breathtaking natural beauty of the setting -- which really is incomparable -- the house and grounds are perfect for a family vacation. The spacious rooms allow everyone to spread out when they want to, and to find private spots when they need to. And the common areas are well designed for gatherings, both indoors and outside. The house had everything we needed -- from the very well-equipped kitchen and bar to the outdoor closet full of beach equipment, the games and movies for kids, the baby-related things and more. The pool area and yard are perfect for children and adults alike. And for the BBQ enthusiast: Very few things can compare with the experience of grilling fresh, local fish while looking across Hanalei Bay at Bali Hai. And then there are the sunsets after dinner -- oh my.
Mary, the property manager, is supremely responsive, helpful and friendly. Having managed the property for many years, she truly cares for it as if it's her own. She's always available, and she anticipates her guests' needs.
We all had a truly wonderful time, and we hope we'll be able to return to Hale Makana some day."
