"The place was much larger than we expected and so comfortable! The sheets and towels smelled really good, the dishes in the kitchen were of a higher quality than the place we stayed on the Big Island, the waves crashing at night lulled me to sleep, and the amount of beach stuff Kevin and Pam have to loan out is impressive. We really loved the west side of Kauai since it is less developed and crowded than the north shore and it is close to the hiking trails of Waimea Canyon and Koke'e State Parks. If you love resorts, this might not be the place for you, but if you want a clean, comfortable, affordable beach condo this place is a gem! Kevin and Pam are great hosts; they do not intrude on your privacy but are quick to extend invitations. Waimea is a few minutes a way and has a supermarket to stock the fridge and a few tasty restaurants. We would definitely stay again and encourage others to stay as well."

"HALE 'ILIMA is the best...losts of windows, beautiful view, bright and airy.
Everything you would want in a beach house. All you need to buy is the food of your choice.
It is convient to stores and best beaches on Island.
It was wonderful for me. I was here to work for 6 weeks and it was great to come from work to a beautiful house rather than a hotel room. You will have a great stay."

"The rooms are very clean and extremely comfortable. If you are looking to sit on the beach, relax and watch the sunset every night, this is the perfect rental. It is a short, one block walk, and your feet are already in the sand! I have been to Kauai on 3 different trips and this location is the best. Completely away from the road noise and crowds on the east side. It is also super close to either road up to Waimea Canyon and the Kalalau Valley lookout. If it is cloudy one day, you can just drive up again the next!! This house has EVERYTHING, down to a cheese grater and ice cream scoop. (which we used every day!) Unlike most rentals that do not have more than 4 forks. Washer, dryer, clothes line, grill, beach towels and chairs…the list goes on and on and on. Cannot wait to rent this one again!!!"

"This property was a wonderful surprise. "Plantation" says it all -- the house was vintage and sprawling. It was extremely well kept and stocked with all the amenities/comforts of home. And with 5000 feet on one level and 12-foot ceilings, it all felt absolutely spacious. The veranda was a perfect spot for our family to gather over drinks to watch surfers, whales, and sunsets. We had a group of 9 adults, and the house was perfect with the setup for each family to have their own private space including a bathroom. We cooked breakfasts and dinners at the house nearly every day - the cupboards were so well stocked that we never ran out of clean coffee mugs or wine glasses! Walks on the nearly private beach provided daily excursions and shell-searching. The expansive lawn also provided a feeling of space and luxury -- a welcome change after spending a few days in Waikiki in throngs of tourists. We even bought a frisbee to take advantage of the space! Even before we arrived in Kauai, our experience with this rental was very positive. The rental agent and the owner were very responsive to inquiries, providing pictures and much more information than expected. Some in our group had late flights out on our day of departure and they were very accommodating to arrange a late checkout from the property. (The only thing that would have made the week better was if roosters really only crowed at dawn! ;-) If (when?) we visit Kauai again, we would definitely return to this property!"
