  • Instant Crush

    "From the moment we walked into Hale Makana, instant crush - we knew we had discovered a special place. The house sits on a stunning vista and its grounds are like a botanic garden. The pool and hot tub got huge thumbs up from our kids (who consider themselves experts on the subject!) and the house was spacious and comfortable. And as wonderful as the proptery is, Mary and her team are even better - charming, informative and wonderful in all respects. If only every vacation included such caring and welcoming stewards! Each night as we watched the sunset from the back yard we remarked on how fortunate we were to spend time at such a special place. We've travelled to Kauai numerous times and this property (and its caretakers) are far and away our favorite. Hale Makana was better than advertised and we can't wait to return. Thanks so much, Mary!"

  • Amazing!

    "The house was fabulous! The views were incredible from every room! The kitchen was well equipped with absolutely everything needed to prepare gourmet meals. We did enjoy the use of the bicycles for trips to pick up a few groceries and the boogie boards and picnic coolers for beach excursions. We saw whales from our outside dining area and enjoyed the albatrosses flying overhead and nesting on the boulevard. We plan on returning to Kauai and hope to rent this house again!"

  • Great, great house!

    "The Aloha House is a great family or small group getaway home. We've rented a number of homes around the country for week-long vacations and the Aloha House is in the top two. We are a family of six, with four kids (an 18 year old girl, a 16 year old boy, a 14 year old boy and an 11 year old girl). The main room consists of a kitchen, dining area and living space, a layout that is open, comfortable, functional and relaxing. There was always enough room for us to move around and still find private space from time-to-time. Off the main room are three bedrooms, each with a large bed and full bath. There is a large master suite above the garage and separate from the rest of the dwelling. The privacy is great. There's also wet bar in the master and there is a balcony on two sides of the room. Nearby the house is a small shopping center with a grocery store and a number of other shopping and dining options. Within the Princeville complex there are additional restaurant options and a nice bar area at the St. Regis (which seems to draw a crowd every evening to watch the sunset). There are more eating options Hanalei Bay and at Kapaa. The beach is a short walk in the neighborhood and through the Hanalei Bay Resort. The beach is shared between the Resort and the St. Regis. There are a number of bikes, wake boards, floaties, and sets of snorkel gear available at the house. We used the house as a base of vacation operations. We were out every day traveling to the various parts of the island. It was a great place to come home to after a day of hiking, relaxing on the beach, zip-lining, snorkeling or otherwise fooling around. The homeowner Tracy was easy to work with and very helpful with recommendations - she spends several weeks a year at the house and knows the area well. I highly recommend this home!"
