"HALE 'ILIMA was a great tropical retreat - this was my 20th trip to Kauai so I have seen the good the bad and the disappointing - this home was perfect! Clean, no bugs, ocean view, walking distance to a surfing beach, great sunsets, etc! The kitchen was very functional for some local cooking and the bedrooms were very comfortable. I love the local feel of Kekaha. We will be staying again! - Mahalo!"

"This was an excellent vacation rental!!! We were attending a wedding in Kekaha for the weekend and the closest hotel/resort to the wedding location was about 30 mins away. So instead of doing a drive after the wedding festivities, we decided to take our chances by finding a vacation rental near by. We have NEVER done a vacation rental before and weren't really sure what to expect. So we were really surprised when we arrived at this cute vacation rental that had a lot more than we expected. The kitchen was fully stocked with the necessary tools and utensils to cook full meals, there was a washer and a dryer available, beach chairs and coolers that came in handy when we ventured to the beach, beach towels and so much more. The pictures and descriptions were on key for this listing. We would totally do this again but probably stay longer to really make use of this vacation rental!!"

"We had a fabulous 10 day stay in Kauai, thanks to this beautiful home. It truly is amazing...completely stocked kitchen, big bedrooms with attached bathroom, decorated very nicely. The large lanai overlooks the ocean - you can watch the whales, see the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We cooked most of our meals at the house, so really saved money on not eating out. There were 5 of us and we had plenty of room, but privacy if that was what we wanted.
The owners (Ed & Annette) were so easy to work with and so helpful. Although we had contact information for their property manager, we never felt the need to contact her.
We went to the Smith Family Luau - well worth the money and a must-see.
We highly recommend this home to anyone. You won't be disappointed."

"I found out earlier in the year that my services were needed at the PMRF to support a NASA Balloon Launch. Since I had never been to the PMRF or Hawaii for that matter I was referred to the VRBO website. After looking at few spots on the westside of Kauai I settled on the Hale Kekaha for my long term stay. The location was absolutely perfect! Literally across the street from the beach so beach access was never an issue. In fact with the windows open and the ceiling fans on I had the best sleep ever away from home especially with the sound of the surf pounding just outside my window. The unit has a fully stocked kitchen with all cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc along with a gas oven, stove top and a microwave. The unit also has full washer and dryers with plenty of washing detergent and fabric softener. There were plenty of bikes, boogie boards and snorkeling equipment for recreational use and there is never ever a shortage of towels, either for the bathroom or for use at the beach. The porch features an outdoor dining table and deck chairs which offers the a great experience for dining or having an evening cocktail. Both the front and back doors feature French style doors with screens to keep the bugs and to cool the house down with a breeze. The landscaping was breath taking and I was able to get excellent shots of rainbows over the ocean with all the coconut palms in the background. There is wireless internet access to keep in touch with the "outside world" and although I never used it they do have a flat screen TV with a DVD player. The sounds of the surf and the view from the front porch was all the entertainment I needed and provided for a very relaxing stay, especially after a long day at work or a fun day of recreation. The location is just minutes away from fine dining in Waimea, the Kikialoa small boat harbor for the Na'Pali tours and road to scenic Waimea Canyon. The only complaint I have is the fact that Highway 50 does separate the property from the beachfront and the sound of automobile traffic can be a very minor distraction from an absolute oasis of relaxation but that is being nit picky! Overall I highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy resort atmosphere of Lihue or Poipu. Kekaha is a very relaxed town and if you did not know any better one would think you were in Main Street, USA but with a beach. As the sign says above the front doors WESTSIDE-BESTSIDE."
