  • Loved this house and the location

    "This house is beautiful and spacious and right across the street from the ocean. The sound of the waves lull you to sleep at night. It's very close to the Waimea Canyon, which is a must see on Kauai. It has a large kitchen, big dining area that we didn't even use because we loved the table out on the deck, a nice yard with a tiki-bar outside, nice sized bedrooms with window fans and ceiling fans, each bedroom has it's own bathroom. The laundry room is super handy to have on vacation too - pack less. They even have an outdoor shower that is pretty private. The yard is beautiful as well. We took advantage of their beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, sand mats, etc. Lots of toys. The kitchen was stocked with a lot of condiments. The house sits in a quiet little neighborhood, not real close to a lot of dining, but not too far either. Somewhat close to Art Night's in Hannepepe (Friday nights), and the grocery stores and restaurants in Waimea. We love this part of Kauai - very little rain to worry about. Polihale State Park is close - a must see too - beautiful beach, very few people, great views of the Napali coast. Patrick was a great host and we hope to return to this house again next year!"

  • What a GREAT week!!

    "We just got home after a wonderful week in Kauai, staying at this property! The pictures are accurate (if not understated) and the home was incredibly comfortable for the 6 of us. Yes, there is a road directly in front of the property but the road noise did NOT detract from our enjoyment of the awesome lanai or hinder the amazing views, which were breathtaking. If there was anything that could be done to upgrade the home, it would be to add a King bed to the master suite in the main house. The queen bed was comfortable enough but the room is very large and could easily accommodate a king bed. The master bath shower was FANTASTIC!! All in all, 6 thumbs up from our crew and we'd definitely stay here again!!"

  • Great spot, excellent owner

    "We stayed at this location for 4 nights and we found the accommodations to be well appointed, the location superb for getting around the west and south side of the island (Waimea Canyon, Polihale, Salt Pond, and Poipu Beaches) and the attentiveness of the owner to be excellent. We encountered a breaker being flipped for the kitchen due to an electrician forgetting to turn it back on after working on an outside light. We turned it back on and everything was is working order. Still, the owner wanted to make sure and sent out an electrician just to be double sure about the working order of everything. In short, she was very attentive and we could not ask for a better owner. We will rent this house again."

  • Exceeded Our Expectations!

    "If you're like me, you have experienced disappointment upon arriving at the rental or resort of a well-planned vacation - that will NOT happen to you with this house! As soon as you open the door of Shaka Hale, you feel as though you are being welcomed into the lovely home of a friend. It is beautifully decorated; elegant, yet comfortable. Nothing has been overlooked to ensure that your stay is anything but enjoyable: fully equipped kitchen, outdoor grill, plenty of linens (including beach towels), quality mattresses/bed linens, washer/dryer and 2nd refrigerator in the garage - we even discovered multiple beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling sets and boogie boards. A pleasant surprise! My family of 4 (including 2 teenage boys over 6') was joined by 4 other adult family members - and we never felt crowded. The 2 separate living areas and multiple lanais provided personal space for those who wanted to relax or read, yet the roomy, open floor plan downstairs allowed us to gather for meals and plan our next day of adventure! A road separates the house from the ocean, but the landscaping you see in the picture provides a buffer - as well as a path to the long, sandy beach that awaits your morning walks :). We never had rain on this sunny side of the island during our stay, though you probably will get wet if you visit the East or North shores. This house is conveniently located to Waimea Canyon, and it's an easy drive to the beaches and restaurants in Poipu, Spouting Horn and the Allerton Gardens. We actually appreciated being able to return to our quiet "neighborhood" after a full day of sightseeing or adventure and enjoy a glass of wine on one of the lanais, watching the sun set over the ocean :). Must-dos: snorkeling at one of the many beaches in Poipu, Waimea Canyon, Napali Coast boat tour, North Shore (how many shades of green are there?!), shave ice at Hee Fat in Kapa'a, Allerton Gardens (bring bug spray!), air tour, sunset dinner at The Beach House. Last, but not least, Chad (rental agent) is amazing to work with! From my first inquiry he was very responsive, generous with his time, and went out of his way to be informative and helpful - ensuring that our stay would be memorable. He even facilitated having a "happy first anniversary" sign I made being hung in the house to greet my niece before our arrival! Our experience was that we weren't just another "transaction" to him. Shaka Hale - and Kauai - awaits you . . . :)"
