"We stayed at Hale Anuenue for almost two weeks for our honeymoon, and the house and location made our vacation absolutely perfect! The house itself is a true home, it's beautifully designed and decorated, is extremely comfortable, and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. We only needed our own clothes and our food and drink, literally!
We spent more time at the house than we anticipated we would, just because it was so comfortable and wonderful, peaceful, and quiet (except for the roosters, but ear plugs and/or AC on at night drowned them out. And during the day we enjoyed them because they’re hilarious to watch). We were really able to relax, we spent a lot of time on the lanai, surrounded by the beautiful back yard and flowers, trees, and sweet kitties that live in the area. We walked through the yard and across the street to the beach in the mornings and evenings with coffee or wine, watched the incredible sunsets that you only get to see if you're on the west side of the island, and enjoyed being away from the tourist areas.
We used a bunch of the beach gear, cooler included, that was at the house, begging to go to the beach with us, and we stayed in all but two nights out of 12, because the house, the lanai, the view, and the kitchen for preparing meals was so much nicer than going to restaurants. There isn't a thing I would change about Hale Anuenue, and there were some things I wished I could've brought back home with me, like the shower in the master bedroom. I love that shower!
And as far as working with Chad, well, all I can say is that he is fantastic! The perfect host, even though we never met face to face. He was very responsive and kind, generous and helpful. We will never work with anyone else for lodging but Chad and Scott whenever we return to Kauai or go to Molokai, because I know that we'll be guaranteed a great place to stay and we’ll get stellar treatment to boot.
Thank you so much, Chad and Scott, for letting us stay in your beautiful, wonderful, special home. We can't wait to return!"
