  • Paradise in paradise

    "Just spent a week+ in this beautiful house. Absolutely loved it. Huge house, well-maintained, lovely setting. This house is in Kekaha, which is most of the way on the south/west side of Kauai. Close to Waimea Canyon, Poipu and other west/south spots. It's right on the water; there is a small beach next to the property. And there is a gorgeous not-crowded white-sand beach (Kekaha Beach) about a mile west. House is lovely, huge kitchen, huge master, incredible bath. Nice size pool, overlooks the ocean. Grounds are also huge, especially when you consider this is beachfront. No postage stamp yard here! Plenty of outdoor space, both covered and open. Well-maintained house, and the yard/grounds are immaculate. Property Manager Neil is a 40 year Hawaii resident, and knows all the local spots for food (poke!), swimming, sights, etc. Yay Neil! Loved that with the pool, our options were always "pool or beach today?" Sometimes both! After 8-9 days here, we didn't have a single complaint! How often can you say that? And my wife & I are picky people. Happy to answer questions."

  • Hawaiian Home Away From Home!

    "I stayed here from July 2013 to February 2014 for long term work at PMRF. Very short drive to the base. Right across the street from the ocean, where people are always fishing. A few steps away from MacArthur Beach, which is a great place to go play in the ocean and lay on the beach. Comfy bed, fairly modern appliances (including full size fridge, stove and oven, flat screen TV w/cable, microwave), wireless internet (not a strong signal but enough to get by), washer and dryer downstairs in the garage, as well as beach chairs and boogy boards and bikes for borrow during your stay. Open up balcony doors at night and enjoy dinner outside under the stars. It's a well maintained apartment and the owners will do all they can to help you out if you have any problems during your stay. You will become accustomed to nats, geicos, lizards, and spiders, and chickens of course. It's not the apartment, it's the location. Waimea and Kekaha have a little less going on then Poipu and Lihue, but they have some jewels like Kalapaki Joe's, the Waimea Theater, Wrangler's, and Ishihara Market. Also go further west 15 minutes and you can camp at the most beautiful beach on the island, Poli Hale State Park (slept on the sand in a sleeping bag under the stars...was incredible). All in all Great Location, Great Apartment, Great Time! It's true what they say "West Side is the Best Side!""

  • 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 . . . :)"
