"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."

"This is our 4th year staying at Hale Lokahi, and we've already put down a deposit for next year. Everything you've read about the house from others is spot on. Chad is easy to work with and Sarah took care of a broken screen door in one day - exceptional customer service. We've rented other VRBO houses, and none of them have the well-stocked kitchen that this home has - especially dry goods (spices, pasta, rice, canned goods) and refrigerator condiments (salad dressings, sriracha, wasabi, soy sauce, mayo, relish, other surprises). We love walking to Ishihara's every morning to get a newspaper and something fun for lunch (which flavor of poke today?) or contemplate what to grill for dinner (Kekaha shrimp? Char Sui chicken? Teriyaki beef?). Wrangler's is fun for dinner, and a walk via the beach to Kalapaki Joe's is fun, too. Don't forget to have a shaved ice and eat at the Shrimp Station. Dragging out chairs every evening to watch the sunset with a glass of wine, returning to cook dinner, laying on the beach after dinner to marvel at the stars, and falling asleep to the sound of the waves relaxes us beyond belief (as evidenced by my husband's FitBit). So much to do on Kauai! Absolutely love love love this house!"

"My family and I really enjoyed spending 3 nights at this ocean front, on the sunny west side of Kauai! There is sooo much to do on this side of Kauai and Kevin helped us "plan it all out". Our teenage boys were very happy to make use of the extra double mattress and boxspring each night AND not have to share the sofa couch! Kevin even had tons of beach equipment to "share" when we spent the day at Polihale State Park....sunset and all! This house is in the perfect location for exploring Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park. It is even walking distance to the Small Boat Harbor...where we took an amazing Na Pali Coast boat ride w/ The Na Pali Experience...snorkling AND going through sea caves too! We even took a day to drive north to Hanalei Bay...enjoying MANY sights along the way! It was so nice to return to our oceanfront property each evening, after being "on the go" each day. The best part of all...the ocean would "sing" us to sleep" and the tradewinds kept us cool!"

"There is not much more that I can add to the other great reviews about Mindy and Dave's rental other than to support that everything that has been previously written is absolutely, 100% correct. The unit is immaculately maintained as are the grounds and the views toward the mountains in the morning are fantastic. Your hosts can't be beat and are about as nice as can be, welcoming you with delicious baked goods and providing anything you need from cooking needs, to books, to beach gear, and more. The proximity to Waimea Canyon for an early morning hike or to drive up to Kokee and hang out in the cool meadow on a hot day down at sea level is great and allows you the opportunity to visit at different times of the day, which I recommend. The cross breezes and ceiling fans, along with the most comfortable bed I've slept in a long time provided a great night's sleep after active days. Like others have mentioned, sunsets are only a few minutes walk to the beach and Waimea town has any food needs you might need. There are also several locally owned shops/cafes etc in town with a wide range of products. I guess to sum everything up, Mindy's is the perfect base for a Kauai get away for those who appreciate the more relaxed local flavor of the island's Westside as a means to experience true aloha. Thank you Mindy and Dave for a terrific week! Can't wait to be back..."
