  • 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 . . . :)"

  • It's the Best

    "My wife and I just got back a few days ago from spending 7 days of our first post-retirement vacation on Kauai. What can we say about how wonderful Mindy's is that hasn't already been said?...it's all true. Mindy's is immaculate and very comfortable. It's probably better than the pictures suggest. We ate "in" for about half our meals making good use of the deck, propane grill and well equipped kitchen. We found the paperback library in the drawers of the TV stand and caught up on some reading on the beach and when we weren't out and about. Mindy's is about a block from the beginning of Kekaha Beach, a few blocks from the "back road" to Waimea Canyon. We had a great week exploring Kauai using Mindy's as our base. Even the North Shore is only an hour and a half or so drive. Most of the South and West shore sights and activities are within 15-40 minutes. Waimea, about 2 miles East, has a good grocery open to 11 PM daily. The grocery also has a reasonable selection of beer, wine and spirits. There are a couple of eateries in Waimea as well. If "beaching it" is your thing, the apartment has chairs, umbrellas, coolers and even snorkeling gear. The beaches are minutes away. Mindy and Dave are the perfect hosts...warm and welcoming They were very helpful with suggestions when asked and never intrusive. We arrived to fresh fruit, home baked muffins and a box of (chocolate covered) macadamia nuts...mmm Do yourself a favor, don't bother trying to find anywhere else."

  • Kala Beach Cottage Review

    "My wife and I stayed at the Kala Beach cottage for a week to celebrate our 5th anniversary. The cottage is in a wonderful location on the west side of Kauai just steps from the beach! The decor and layout of the house is very beachy, homey and inviting. We felt at home right as we stepped through the door! It was fully stocked with anything we could have needed for a day at the beach, i.e. beach chairs, towels, snorkel equipment, umbrella. The town of Waimea is just a short drive down the road, and is a great little town with local restaurants, grocery stores, beach equipment rentals and, of course, shave ice! It's also the beginning point of the Waimea Canyon drive, which is a must-see! The cottage was a serene and relaxing home base for all the adventures we took on Kauai. We loved staying on the west side of the island because it felt a lot less "touristy" than the south-east and northern areas of Kauai. I highly recommend the cottage for a romantic getaway or even a family vacation. Kauai is the most beautiful and peaceful place we've ever been (and we've travelled all over the world), and the cottage was one major contributor to our incredible vacation!"

  • AWESOME house!

    "The house is AMAZING and has everything needed for a great time. We barbequed twice and had breakfast and cocktails everyday on the Lanai. The outdoor shower that is adjacent to the entrance into the downstairs bathroom is so convenient it is genius! The view is spectacular, even from the laundry shed which also holds everything for a great time at the beach! We left some beach mats which I hope will add to the collection. The rocks across the street make for a great perch to watch the beautiful sunsets and my uncle quite enjoyed Macarthur beach down the street."

Kekaha Travel Tips

Relax in Kekaha Vacation Rentals

Kekaha vacation rentals are a reality for visitors looking for a place to lay their weary heads during their Kauai travel. Kekaha is an area located on the island of Kauai and Kekaha Beach is a popular attraction for visitors to the area. The white sandy beaches stretch for miles and for those who do not wish to sunbathe or frolic in the water, Kekaha is also a popular fishing spot.

Kekaha Vacation Rentals Offer Comfort and Convenience

Kekaha vacation rentals offer the comfort and convenience of a private residence. While Kekaha Beach is a popular spot, it is still a beach that is unspoiled by noisy crowds, so is the perfect complement to beach goers who are on vacation to relax. Kekaha beach rentals sit steps from beach access, with some condominiums and single-family homes offering views of the red tint that the beach water often takes on in Kekaha Beach. Most Kekaha vacation rentals offer kitchens that are fully equipped, furnished living room and dining room areas and private one, two or more bedrooms.

Things to Do In Kekaha

Kekaha offers plenty of amenities inside of your vacation rental, but there are also a variety of activities to enjoy outside of it too. Outdoors sporting activities such as swimming, surfing, body boarding, fishing and paddling are but a few of the water activities visitors of all ages can enjoy. Walks on the beach—especially during the sunrise and sunset—are other popular activities to enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian weather. Families flock to Kekaha for its pristine beaches, tight-knit community and other family-friendly activities. As the fourth largest island in Hawaii, you always have the option to venture out to other parts of the island for kayaking on the Wailua River, visiting other beaches such as Poipu Beach or hiking in Kokee State Park.
