Recent Private Homes reviews
"This was our first time renting a vacation property, and we were a bit nervous about what to expect, even though all the reviews had been favorable. This beautiful home exceeded all of our expectations. The house was equipped with everything we needed, especially the kitchen---a must for two couples who love to cook. The views from the home were nothing short of breathtaking, the property very well-maintained, and the neighborhood quiet. The flora and fauna abounded...it was a nature lover's dream.
The beach below the house is very nice, although it is a trek to get there and the trail can be slippery after a rain shower. I would recommend taking minimal gear down to the beach given the distance and terrain.
We cooked most dinners at the house and highly recommend The Hanelei Dolphin Fish Market (recommendation from property manager and neighbor) if you are looking for fresh fish to grill. There was a variety of fresh fish to choose from as well as poke and sushi, and the staff was very friendly. We also recommend dining at The Hanelei Dolphin Restaurant; it was delicious.
We spent a lot of time touring Kauai (Waimea Canyon, trips to see waterfalls, helicopter tour of the island, snorkeling at Anini Beach and the list goes on) as it was our first time visiting here. It's a beautiful and diverse island!
We all embarked on this vacation with little knowledge about albatross, but have a new-found love for these amazing birds who nest in the neighborhood each year and use the bluff behind the house as a take-off point when heading out to sea. (Met two neighbors who have websites dedicated to these remarkable birds - we learned so much).
As our vacation came to an end and we made the journey back home, talk of returning to Spindrift dominated our conversations. What a find!"

"There is so much we loved about the property - from the moment we drove up to the house. The location was perfect. The house had every convenience imaginable. We prepared some amazing meals in that kitchen.
It made it very difficult for us to leave the property to explore the island.
Some of us would run the trail behind the house every morning while others would work out in the gym.
We also hiked the NaPali Coast Trail which is a short drive from the house. It was difficult but well worth it.
The house was perfect. Glenn was great which made it easy for us to decide to rent Ke Aloha Estate.
and it did not disappoint! We have wonderful memories and our mother would have been thrilled.
Thank you Glenn & Family!"

Excellent Home & Amazing Location! Perfect for Families!
"We just got back from our amazing trip to Kauai. Hale Emmalani is a perfect option for families who want to be close to everything and still relax in a peaceful home. This house is 5 minute drive from the St. Regis Hotel (you can valet park your car for free and use the hotels entrance to the beach.) Sunset here is a must. Super close to the most fabulous beaches and towns - close to stores. In the same neighborhood as Queen's Bath. House stocked with everything you need. Excellent home layout and the separate pool cabana has it own bed and bath so great for families who want some room or perfect for another couple. Everyone loved the outdoor shower! The house looks just like the photos but the location is even more beautiful - the mountains are enchanting. Cara is lovely to work with! We cannot wait to make this a recurring family destination - It's like we have our own home in Kauai!
Must See's - Na Pali Coast Boat Tour- Leave from Princeville or North Shore - Hanalei, Anini, & Tunnels Beach - Princeville Ranch Ziplines tours, Queen's Bath, Sunset at the St. Regis Bar (you don't even need to buy a drink!).
Enjoy - sigh!"

"This house met our needs for three couples and one single staying for a week. The house was clean and well stocked; loved the lanais for hanging out and visiting. Didn't do much cooking there but the kitchen had anything we would have needed to do so."
