Best Vacation Home on the Island!
"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!!"

The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The house was perfect for two couples. Spacious and well equipped. The pool was a terrific place to cool down as the weather was a bit on the warm side and given there is no AC. We are looking forward to a return stay. Highest recommendation for this home."

"This is a fantastic place if you're on the island for adventuring and will be spending most of your time out and about. Perfect location on north shore with big beautiful yard. Nice, big bedroom and huge bathroom, but they both get super hot in the afternoon. You'll need to apply bug spray or cover up if you want to spend any time in the "kitchen", which is outside on the deck and the typical setup for vacation rentals getting around Kauai's finicky rental rules. This space is not very private if there are people in the main house, as their dining space is also on the deck. Booking process was strange and heavy handed; they tried to steer us towards booking through their own system outside of VRBO."

"My family and I enjoyed this home in paradise and had a wonderful vacation.
It is all as is described online and more because you can't smell the air or feel the breeze until you come there. It is a beautiful home filled with every convenience.
When my family and i chose to stay in this house located on very private beach on spectacular north shore of Kauai we couldn’t have picked a better place to spend the week. We were welcomed by our host who showed us property and all the conveniences you want when you are on vacation.
The house had everything that was needed: well stocked kitchen with everything need in order to prepare our meals,nice selection of beach essentials, top hotels quality sheets and towels...
Every morning we woke up early to view the beautiful sunrises and walk along the beach. The water was very calm due to the offshore reef, making it the perfect beach for families with children. During low tide, we enjoyed snorkeling. We had a great time going kayaking and paddle boarding.
If you are looking for a great beach getaway, look no further. It's the perfect place to stay.. Great place to relax, enjoy and create lasting memories.The location is perfect for enjoying the island lifestyle. The ability to sit and watch the kids play at the beach and in the ocean is perfect. Would stay again in a heartbeat!"
