'Today is good-bye from island time back to real time. Visiting the island four or five times yearly-this was my first time staying on the west shore, but it won't be the last time. We spent a few afternoons at the Salt Pond area. Miles of sight seeing. It was so nice to return 'home' each evening to the ***** cottage! This wonderful vacation rental should be featured on HGTV!!!

Everything you need to cook, BBQ fresh fish and eat on the enclosed lanai. Hotub is surrounded by palms and has an EXCELLENT view of endless stars. Owners are kind and made sure we had everything we needed.

Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this home with another couple. Well kept home with wonderful appliances including laundry. Hot tub was great at night. Close to beach and "downtown" although not walkable to town at night due to lack of sidewalks. Great jumping point to everything you want to do. Can't wait to go back, I'd definitely rent again.

We had a great time at Hale Makai. It had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of activity. The location is very convenient with close proximetry to beautiful beaches and just a five minute drive to Waimea for groceries, shops, restaurants, etc. Highly recommended!

A great clean, fully equipped, and furnished rental on the quiet side of the island.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to get away from it all and relax, but sufficientry convenient to the best beaches and outdoor activities to keep you as busy as you want to be. The owners live in a home in front of the rental, and it was very evident the they take great pride and care of this property. We would definitely rent it again.

If you want peace and quiet and close proximity to one of Hawaii's best beaches check out this location. Worth every penny and more. We are definitely coming back!

The home is fenced, and has many trees, and lush landscape for utmost privacy.

I'm sure you'll find the accommodations above and beyond the norm. Come see for yourself, you'll be glad you did!
