  • 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 . . . :)"

  • Our first vacation rental

    "Wow, where do we begin! We booked this cottage because my husband and I brought my parents with us to celebrate their 30 year wedding anniversary. Let me just say that it did not disappoint. Upon stepping into the cottage, we were stunned at how big and wide open it was. It had everything we had hoped for and more! The kitchen was fully equipped, and had a seperate dining and living room that connected to a wide open area which was great. The bedrooms were MUCH bigger than we anticipated, and the master bedroom had a door that connected to the back patio with a very big hot tub that was ready to be used. The whole cottage exceeded all of our expectations. Beds were very cozy and the ceiling fans kept the house in a very comfortable temperature the entire time. The bathroom had plenty of towels and even some beach towels if you needed them. The yard had all kinds of fruit trees, like oranges, limes, and avacodos. It was amazing! The location was southwest of the island which was the dryer side that stayed mainly sunny. It was very close to Port Allen (about 10 miles) where if you booked Napali coast cruise, it was a short drive, and Salt Pond Park where there is a nice beach to just relax at. The town of Waimea is only a few miles away. The ocean was literally right across the street within a footballs field length. My husband and I after our first night, woke up early and walked along the road next to the beach and watched the sunrise. It was very beautiful. We would absolutely without a doubt stay here again when we return to Kauai someday. Our rental property manager Scott was very easy to work with, and was always in touch if we needed anything or had any questions or concerns. Looking forward to returning again one day. Mahalo! Tiffany and Charles Thomas"

  • Girls week

    "This house is just as described. Very private with gorgeous views of the ocean. Spent hours on the lanai. Came for a girls week but would be great for families as well. Great beaches close by. Best weather on the island on the west side."

  • Paradise!

    "This is the second time we have stayed on the island of Kauai. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The pictures/description are exactly what is stated on the listing. The west side is a little quieter than the east side of the island, but that was what we were looking for. Shopping/grocery store/beach are not far from the property. It was great when a neighbor brought over a coconut for us to try. Lance (person taking care of the property) brought us some bananas and checked to see if everything was okay with our stay. If you are a photographer you will love the different flowers to photograph. The property is not far from the Waimea Canyon. Would rent this property again!!"
