LOVED, LOVED OUR MONTH HERE - NEXT YEAR WE ARE STAYING EVEN LONGER!
"I am going to get straight to the point! WE LOVE, LOVE, LOVED THE MONTH WE SPENT AT HALE O’ANI THIS YEAR! And we are coming again in 2016 – this time for ten weeks!
After several years of staying in condos on the beach in Poipu, my husband and I decided to explore more of Kauai’s vacation properties. Fortunately, we were still on the island when we found the listing for the above property and were able to see it in person. We loved the serenity of the location and the beautiful attention to detail of the décor. We rented it on the spot for the entire month of January, 2015. It did not disappoint. It is a wonderful retreat. The furnishings are unique, the floors spectacular, and the place immaculate. The bedding is first class, with wonderful pillows (better than I have at home).
I love to cook and consequently we ate out infrequently during the month. I found the kitchen to be well equipped with a blender, food processor, crock pot, all the typical utensils, and a gas stove, which was a bonus. The glassware and dishes are much nicer than I’ve ever had in a condo property. There is also a Weber grill with all appropriate tools. And Tommy Bahama beach chairs, plus an umbrella for days at the beach. The hot tub and outside shower were great treats, and we enjoyed the seclusion and privacy that the stucco wall with palms and blooming flowers provided (think “romantic tropical” house). There are plenty of birds singing and typical creatures that you’d expect to see in a tropical climate.
Faye and Bob were highly attentive, but not intrusive. Because we were staying for a month we made a few requests that were fulfilled immediately. While we don’t want to wish our lives away, I can’t wait to get back to this wonderful spot which seems to be a great balance of beauty and functionality; and that suits us perfectly."

"1st off Maureen is a very sweet and down to earth person , She greeted and addressed any needs or ?s we had. When entering the condo my family and I were very happy with what we found , all the amenities and then some . It is difinitely home away from home. The price is beyond fair for a 3 bedroom 2 full bathrooms 2 story unit over memorial weekend. I just found my residents every time I visit Kauai. Thank you very much for making our stay that much SWEETER."

"We stayed six nights at Hale Kua and loved it! It's very private, but a short (15-20 minute) drive from Poipu and Koloa, so we found it very convenient. The view off of the lanai is wonderful, and the owners Cathy and Bill were delightful! We had a really nice time talking with them, and they have done a great job of making Hale Kua a comfortable getaway.
The cottage itself is very clean and feels new. The kitchen does not have a full oven/cook range, but there are three hotplates (one two-burner and one one-burner) and the microwave is the kind that also does convection oven cooking (we had one of these when we lived in Japan). There are many appliances (coffee maker, blender, electric kettle, etc.) and we also used the BBQ grill, which was very easy to use.
Our favorite things about our stay were:
the view from the lanai
the location (close to everything without being in the middle of everything)
the tangerine and grapefruit trees
I would happily stay here again and will recommend it to others. Another great VRBO find."

"Having been to Kauai many times, this is my favorite place to stay. Tucked away surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers it feels like a home away from home. Clean & comfortable! Well thought out & stocked with beach chairs, beach towels etc. Just a short drive from Poipu we spent many sunny February days laying out at the Sheraton and Shipwrecks beaches. Every morning my husband made us breakfast that we would enjoy on the lanai, with fresh squeezed OJ from the many fruit stands we found along the way to the cottage. Showering in the bamboo outdoor shower everyday is something I truly miss! I am already counting the days until we can return to this lovely cottage, my home away from home! Bamboo for Two hosts Susan & Steven were great. Available for recommendations on activities & places to eat still giving us our privacy. We even spent an evening watching whales from their lanai enjoying a glass of wine together. We had many fantastic meals just minutes away at the Kalaheo Cafe, one of my favorite spots to eat on the island! This was a lovely relaxing vacation I will not forget, Mahalo!"
