Perfect in every aspect - 3 years and counting
"This is now the 3rd year and trip I have made to Hale a Kai - its the most perfect and beautiful vacation house. Everything from the start of the rental to the pre work and meeting at the house to go over everything works like a charm. The house is stunning, starting from the morning dawn over the incoming sea to the mid-noon sun that you find yourself relaxing to in the swimming pool - to the evening of massive turtles in the surf as you sit on the little sandy beach and become a wash with what the day has given you - then at night the clarity of the sky and the never ending roar of the ocean ends the day all to be repeated tomorrow."

"Hale Lani Kai truly IS as wonderful as all of the previous reviews state. It was perfect for our group of six (5 adults + 1 toddler). I stayed in the upstairs bedroom with the slider. Coming from the foggy San Francisco Bay Area, I welcomed leaving the slider and windows open at night for the balmy cross-breeze. Several islanders told us that July and August are their “bad weather” months due to the heat and humidity. Although the house does not have A/C, there are ceiling fans everywhere and several box fans, which got a good workout during our stay (their white noise also helped drown out the roosters’ crowing). The lanai always had a refreshing breeze and we spent a lot of time out there dining, playing games, relaxing and enjoying the view.
Hale Lani Kai’s kitchen is spacious and the pictures don’t do it justice. The open floor plan and island are great for preparing meals, even with several cooks at once. We shopped at Costco as soon as we arrived and the extra-large refrigerator held everything. The powerful blender was great for making frosty beverages and the counter-top docking station/radio was in constant use. The wireless internet was much appreciated for booking The Smith Family Luau (the best!) and researching other things to do, like kayaking the Hanalei River. On July 4th we attended the Concert in the Sky, which Kelly had recommended. What a great family event benefitting Kauai Hospice!
Hale Lani Kai’s selection of beach gear is extensive and the close proximity to multiple great beaches and a playground is awesome. We always cut through the vacant lot between the house and the surf shop. The outdoor shower and bench is very convenient when returning home with sandy bodies and salty gear. All of the bathrooms are elegant and spacious. The furnishings are upscale and the home and landscaping are well-maintained. Kelly was easy to work with and helpful.
Our entire group enjoyed our stay at Hale Lane Kai very much! We unanimously didn’t want to leave, would love to stay there again and wholeheartedly recommend it!"

"The house is lovely - spacious, clean and beautifully furnished. All three generations of us enjoyed the outdoor shower! The short walk to the beach made it possible to go back and forth several times a day with breaks for meals, naps and just lazing on the patio. The management was very prompt and gracious when we had a minor problem with the refrigerator."
