Recent Kauai reviews

  • Perfect

    "I could not give more of a high review. This was my 3rd visit to Kauai and there is no better place than Hanalei. You will not be let down by anything! I would like to list the following; This is no small place, in-fact quite large for two. We had my brother and sister-inlaw over for a bbq and there was amenities for all! The walk to the beach is almost a trip and a fall. Super close. The walk to town was equally as short. The only reason we used our rental was to go way out of town. Outdoor shower is awesome for rinsing off your beach bi-product. Nothing overlooked, down to the spices in the cabinet, purified water, completeness of kitchen utensils. All of the rest. To make this a non biased review, I would like to mention that the couch/comfort ratio is not up to par with the house. Plus there was a oscillating fan that was not working (making our first night really hot until Devaki showed us all the windows that could be opened.) All that aside I could not give this less than a 5 star rating! If you have any second thoughts, you must disregard! You wont be disappointed!"

  • Great location - easy, professional transaction!

    "The location of this home is unbeatable. We walked many times down through Hanalei Bay Resorts to get to the beach at Puu Poa Point (and even hitched a ride for my 75 yr old dad on their shuttle). The beach front here is shared by the St Regis and is spectacularly beautiful and calm. Princeville, while a bit pricey, is a great place to rest your head and plan your next day's adventure. The kitchen in the Mountain View home is very well stocked and so is the beach gear shelf. We had every tool we needed to cook 2-3 meals a day. Next in line for house favorites is the view. It's just you and that gorgeous mountain morning, noon and night. For the size, this home was a fantastic value and we loved it. The transaction was easy breezy and the communication was plentiful. Thanks for a fantastic week-long adventure in paradise for our family of 5 (ages 2-75) !!"

  • Fabulous house, Fabulous location!

    "What a great getaway! Lihi kai is perfectly represented by the pictures on the website, a beautiful relaxing home with the sound of the waves breaking and the whales breaching offshore. Who needs more? Located far enough away from town for virtual seclusion, yet close enough for easy daily trips to meet all needs. We spent our days out on the deck, walking the beach, snorkeling Tunnels Beach, and horseback riding in Princeville. Alexandra was helpful with securing our booking, etc. And while on the island, Julie was very gracious and welcoming. One can tell upon entering the gate this property, inside and out, receives great personal attention. We feel lucky to have had the opportunity to stay at such a beautiful home."

  • Wonderful 1 bedroom Unit with View

    "This one bedroom unit is so very nice, with a beautiful king size bed (very comfortable). It has a breathtaking view of Hanalei Bay. The place was stocked with small refrig, coffee maker, some plates, cups, wine glasses etc. (mini kitchenette). I was most impressed with the extra touches, such as two beach chairs, two boogie boards, snorkel equipment, and picnic bags. We will be back!"
