About Gale Kramer
I have been coming to Kauai since the early 80's and always new that someday I would retire here. I purchased this beautiful ocean front lot in the late 80's and built this wonderful home in 1994. I am so happy to be able to share this fabulous experience with others. I love living on Kauai and I know you will enjoy your stay at Hale Hokuu Too
Gale Kramer purchased this House in 1994
Why Gale Kramer chose Kukuiula
Poipu Beach better known as Sunny Poipu offers great year round weather. We are 20' off the oceans edge with great sunsets to enjoy and a view of the small boat harbor and the blow hole. You can beat this location. Sandy beach just one min. walk away. Whale watching during the season while enjoying afternoon refreshments right your private lanai.
What makes this House unique
Within a one min. walk you can swim, snorkel or take a day boat ride not to mention a lazy day of doing nothing either pool side or at the beach. Whale watching, sunsets, turtles and lush gardens everywhere. Private and secluded.

Even better than it looks
The listing promises much and in our experience the promises were fulfilled perfectly. The house is large and the rooms are spacious. The views are magnificent, especially at sunset. The kitchen is well provisioned with dishes and utensils. The bbq grill is large and works well. The beds are comfortable. The location is convenient to beaches, shopping, and restaurants. We highly recommend staying here.
Thanks for your terrific review. Hope to see you again.
Wonderful Vacation at Hale Hokuu Too
Our family of five stayed at HH2 from 11/7 through to 11/11/17. The house was beautifully situated right on the ocean with a great view of the sunset and the Spouting Horn. The grassed back yard sloped down from the pool to the ocean wall as this was not a beach front home. It was a short walk to a small, protected beach and park where you could easily make a day of sunning and snorkeling there. The house was well equipped and there wasn't anything we needed that wasn't there in the kitchen, family room or three bedrooms. You could sleep more folks in different rooms without difficulty. They also had beach chairs and mats, snorkeling equipment, games, and cable TV in most of the rooms. You could not park in the garage however. We made good use of the gas barbeque and grilled a few delicious meals on it. There were plenty of activities on the island that did not require a long drive, unless you want to see Waimea Canyon. We hired a private tour guide with a comfortable van to take us there so it was personalized and not touristy.
There were a few nitpicking things that affected our stay. There were a lot of little signs placed in the kitchen and family rooms telling visitors what they could and could not do. Some light switches were taped off such as a switch to turn on outdoor flood lights that lit up the ocean at night making it pretty to see the waves coming in. Use of air conditioners were also limited during the day which made the house very warm when you came home from a day of activities. We understood the cost of electricity on the island was high but eating meals in a room that was quite warm was a bit unpleasant.
Nonetheless, we highly recommend that anyone looking for a great ocean front home that sleeps a good number of people (up to 8) should stay here.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVELY REVIEW. WE DO SUGGEST TO TURN OFF THE
AC WHEN LEAVING FOR THE DAY TO KEEP THE COST OF KAUAI'S EXPENSIVE
ELECTRICITY DOWN, BUT YOUR CHOICE TO USE OR NOT USE. WE DO HAVE SOME
INFO SIGNS IN THE KITCHEN TO TRY TO PREVENT DAMAGE. HOPING THESE NOTES HELP GUESTS DURING THEIR VISIT AT HALE HOKUU TOO.
HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.
Great! Highly Recommended!
Spent a week at Hale Hokuu Too with 8 adults and 2 small children for my parent's 60th birthdays. The location was perfect: short drive to shops/stores, short walk to a shaved ice stand, and an even shorter walk to a great beach (super kid-friendly and great snorkling there). The grounds were beautiful: nicely manicured, amazing views, the pool & bbq were a huge plus too. The house was great: it was big enough for our large group to have plenty of space to congregate, as well as, everyone to have their own room. There were also a lot of "extras" that were really nice to have as well: umbrella stroller, high chair, pool toys, beach towels, etc. We never turned on the a/c, just used fans throughout the house and swam in the pool when the house got too hot - and that was fine for us. Gale was attentive and responsive but not overly so in any way. I would recommend this house to anyone heading to Kauai without a second thought.
We had a great time.
Everything was exactly as we expected it. The views were great. The beaches were close and we live loved the pool. I loved that Gail called us right away to make sure we got in and give us updates. Don't have second thoughts about renting this. It's terrific!
So glad you enjoyed. Come back again. Great guests.
Unethical Owner, Place is old rundown, will ruin your vacay!
Run from this listing or cancel your reservation if you can.
There were many red flags with this owner that I shouldn't have overlook but did. She was not flexible at all, made me pay with pay pal increasing the cost of the rental over $200 on paypal fees she agreed to refund $50 of it which she did not. Our security deposit was $1,050 she refunded $493 only claiming we spent more than $500 in electricity during a 3 day stay. Yes she charges additional per day per usage over $20. This house is a very dated, very old furnishings, needs a total facelift. There is no central AC most rooms are very hot during the afternoon and the 4th bedroom, is really a murphy bed, we couldn't use because there isn't AC.
There are notes all over the house warning if you use more electricity you will be charge, if you disconnect the internet you will be charge, if you unplug the appliances you will be charge, If you loose a key, you will be charge $300. Threatening notes "Don't eat in my couch"
The view is excellent the ocean is right outside the window but the bathrooms are old and we could only get hot water on the master bathroom so all 5 of us had to take turns showering. I never ate there for fear of staining her cheap wood counters. She left notes on not leaving glasses on counter. The dining room table had a cheap plastic table cloth. This is insane. She shouldn't be renting her home if she is this overprotective of her dated old cheap furnishings.
Upon leaving I cleaned that house in fear of loosing my deposit which I did. We felt so unwelcome and afraid to eat or seat on his totally dated cheaply furnished home. Is old and not worth the price we paid.
I am so traumatized by this experience I may never use home away again. We stayed at a 5 star resort in Maui cheaper and better than this place was.
MY first reaction was to go on the attack and defend myself. I have decided to just list the facts about this horrible guest that wasn't worth the 3 night rental.
July 3 at 9pm to July 6 at 10 am
My payment policy is a check or to use pay pal which does have a fee involved which does not go to me but goes to them. I always say in my emails that if you want to avoid the pay pal fee please pay with a check. This guest decided to use pay pal fully aware of the fees involved.
Their security deposit was $ 1000 plus the pay pal fee. The pay pal fee is not refundable. Pay pal takes their fee out when booked through them immediately.
As far as my home being old and ugly, please read the 35 other reviews. Why would I receive so many 5 star ones. The fourth bedroom is described as the pool/garden family room with a queen size murphy bed that can be used as a 4th bedroom with a door for privacy if needed.
Notes: We do have notes around the house as a convenience for my guests to make things easier and not more difficult. There are no notes about the electricity usage. The electricity usage is in your reservation letter which I ask all my guests
to print out read and sign the first page and mail it with their check. This guest
signed her reservation letter and emailed it back to me agreeing with all the terms and conditions. Kauai has the most expensive kw rate in the country and so
we do have a weekly allowance that we offer which is more than enough for most people if not all. This couple used more electricity in 2.5 days that most people can use in a month. My housekeeper checks the electrical meter prior to check in and right after check out. They consumed over $500 worth. As stated in the reservation letter and signed and agreed upon, the over usage was deducted from their security deposit and the balance was sent to them within less than a week.
I was at my home prior to these people checking in and all of the slip covers were spotless. Housekeeping after their check out had to remove all of them and take them to be cleaned. The house was not left clean as she has stated.
We take a lot of pride in our upscale home and its decorations. Of course we do not purchase new furniture every year. My Kreiss Living room couch is 10' x 10' down wrapped and was very expensive.
This women is not telling the truth and I feel sorry for anyone else who ends up with them as guests in their home.
Beautiful property - perspective from traveling w/little kids
We came here with 3 couples and 2 toddlers (~1 1/2 years old). First, the location is excellent and the home is beautiful and comfortable. It was easy to walk to the small bay and Po'ipu beach is a very close drive. Gale was quite accessible and very ready to provide information. She's more involved than other hosts, so that was a different experience for us; we are more used to benign neglect.
I know this doesn't apply to many, but from the perspective of having a couple little kids roaming around - the bottom half of the house is pretty child-proofed and they have lots of pool/beach toys and even an umbrella stroller that came in handy for us. The main hazards were the stair cases (blocked on the bottom floor) and the outside/pool area. So if you're traveling with little ones, you'll have to keep a close eye.
The other thing that may not apply to most is that being 7 months pregnant, the lack of A/C in the common area upstairs was tough for me especially if I had to stay in the house waiting for a naptime to end in the late afternoon. The west facing windows have incredible views but they also get LOTS of sun so it warms up quickly. The bottom area is a bit cooler because it's less exposed.
All in all, I think this is a great property. But given our particulars - little kids, very pregnant, maybe not the best time for us to visit this place.
Thank you for taking the time to review my home. We try our best to make
every effort in making your experience as wonderful as possible.
I am a little confused about your comment about no air conditioning in the public area upstairs..WE DO HAVE AIR CONDITIONING UPSTAIRS IN THE PUBLIC AREA which was installed 2 years ago.
I do hope to have all of you again as guests at
Hale Hokuu Too.
Thank you, Gale
Sunny Poipu Beach is one of the best location on the island of Kauai. We have a great location and wonderful views of the small boat harbor and Spouting Horn. Can't beat it.
