"This home was beyond our expectations. It is beautiful inside and out. There are so many great things on the property - the pool, relaxing lanais with hammocks, fully stocked kitchen, super comfortable beds, and the beautiful ocean just across the street. Waimea Canyon is an easy drive, Hanapepe Friday Night Artwalk is super fun, and Polihale Beach is someplace everyone should experience. There are mango trees, a banana tree, palms with coconuts, an avocado tree and cute little geckos hanging out on the property. This is without a doubt the most magnificent property we have ever rented on VRBO. You will not be disappointed!!"

"We absolutely loved this cottage! Although the West side of the island tends to be a bit warmer and less rainy, this spot is tourist free and old-style island living. As a returning resident of the islands, I wouldn't want a condo or hotel. We loved the privacy of the grounds, the plumeria and banana trees and the hibiscus hedges screening the front.
The outdoor shower was wonderful! Nothing like being under blue Hawaiian skies, watching the clouds, palm trees and Monarch butterflies in the Crown Flower bushes from the lot behind the unit.
The interior of the unit was very welcoming. The living area was so relaxing at the end of the day, and the bed in the "master" was wonderful. We loved the breezes flowing through the room each night. I loved the kitchen...the restoration made me feel like I was back in Old Hawaii. I felt like I was "home".
The beach is within walking distance, but this is not your average swimming beach. During our stay, the waters were pretty rough, but we made use of the shore by walking and watching sunsets with Niihau Island in the background. Other swimming beaches will require a drive. This was not an issue for us.
The unit was supplied with everything you would need to enjoy your stay; towels, water fun gear, full kitchen and more.
We went to the Kauai Coffee Plantation, Koloa Rum Company, Waimea Canyon, Kalalau Valley overlook, Wailua Falls (saw a wild pua'a) and Poipu Beach. We would recommend Brennecke's Beach Broiler for dinner in Poipu. Get there for Happy Hour and sunset. Great Mai Tais, food and service! Ka;apake Joe's in Waimea was good, too!
We would definitely return here in the future! I'm missing the roosters crowing in the morning..."

"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!"

"The house was beautiful, the location was awesome, out of the way, and not overly populated. We had a car and went all the way to the end of the road on north the shore, and as far as you could go on the west, and everywhere in-between, absolutely beautiful. There were whales spouting frequently, we even saw some breach the surface. The bed was comfortable, my husband and I stayed in the garden bedroom, and fell asleep to the sound of the ocean every night. The bedrooms are separated enough to ensure privacy, and chose this house because of the private bathrooms each bedroom has. The lanai on the upper level was perfect, had a large table with plenty of seating, a porch swing, and a hammock. There were two other long time couples friends that we vacationed with, no complaints about the comfort of the other beds either. I would highly recommend this house, If you don't like stairs, than don't stay here. I found it great exercise...bedrooms are on the lower level. Patrick was very personable, showed us around the property when we arrived.He would let us know about event happenings in the local area. When we were on our way to the airport, he called to ask how our stay was and if there was anything he needed to improve upon for future visitors. We will be back to visit."
