Imagine waking to the sounds of the breaking surf in the newest and most luxurious home in Kekaha. Welcome to “Hale Kahakai”, our brand new, custom built, West Kauai beach house! You’ll be amazed when you walk through the front doors and experience the incredible ocean view and all the unique features this home has to offer.

There are 4000 square feet of luxurious living space, an ocean side hot tub, original oil paintings, indoor and outdoor dining, a state of the art kitchen, soaring ceilings and of course, the best view of the longest white sand beach in the entire state of Hawaii. The sunsets are a show every night and in the winter months, you have a front row seat as you watch the whales play.

Even the fussiest chef would be proud to create an island feast in our incredible “gourmet” kitchen which features a beautiful hand hammered copper sink, solid soapstone counter tops, stainless appliances and a flat top stove.

You’ll feel like Hawaiian royalty in the majestic, air conditioned master suite, with it’s king bed, huge walk-in closet, TV and DVD Player. The master bath is one of the most impressive rooms in the entire house with it’s beautiful walk in Travertine shower, gold vessel sinks, cherry cabinetry and a roman Jacuzzi tub for two. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have queen beds. All bedrooms as well as the main living area have A/C. There are ceiling fans, TVs and DVD Players in all bedrooms.

The main living area of this home was designed to bring that outdoor feeling inside. The glass pocket doors slide completely out of the way to open the 500 Sq. Ft. lanai to the rest of the house. Elegant tiled flooring, soaring ceilings, richly stained wood beams and a one of a kind coral rock wall give the grand room a majestic ambiance. Nestled in the rock wall, the room boasts an atmospheric fireplace, HD TV, and entertainment center. There is a Sony Surround Sound home theater audio system, with an in-wall sub woofer and speakers wall mounted throughout the great room. To keep you connected, we also provide free, high speed, wireless internet access throughout the house.

After a day of hiking, swimming, surfing or whatever adventure you have chosen, be sure to relax the evening away in our 6 person hot tub! The hot tub faces the sunset, so you can even soothe your muscles at the same time you’re enjoying the colorful close of another Kauai day!

From the very spacious lanai, you can watch whales, surfers, sunbathers, swimmers, body surfers, wind surfers and of course, the magnificent westward views to the island of Niihau, 18 miles off shore, out in front of you. At night, the sounds of the ocean’s waves will rock you to sleep.

Kekaha is located on the 'Sunny' west side of Kauai and is the western most town in the US. With an average annual rainfall of less than 20 inches, you are almost guaranteed a warm, sunny vacation, regardless of the time of year! Laid back Kekaha has no crowded beaches, no traffic, no tourist traps, no hotel resorts, just sun, surf and people who remember what the 'Spirit of Aloha' really means.

You are also just one block from the road that leads to the famous 'Waimea Canyon' and the 'Kalalau Lookout'. There are two major grocery stores less than three miles away and you are just minutes from the harbor where you can catch a sunset cruise along the NaPali coast.

Come and Experience for yourself the “No Ka Oi” (Best) in Kekaha!

* Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of using your Kauai home. We really enjoyed ourselves and especially loved the beautiful sunsets. We explored the island from Waimea Canyon to Princeville. The beaches are all gorgeous and it was so relaxing to lay on the sand and listen to the ocean. Again thank you for everything. If we decide to venture that far again, we will certainly contact you. Best of wishes and Mahalo.


* We had a great time in Kauai and your home was really first class. One week was really not enough time to see everything on the island so we will have to return sometime. Thanks!


* The house was beautiful and we had a great stay. So nice to be in a new clean house!


* We had a great week. The house was really great. The views, space and the layout were wonderful. The kitchen was well equipped and the showers had great pressure. It was nice to have the washer and dryer on site, and the stereo system was awesome. The surroundings and furniture were very comfortable. The outdoor shower was a nice thing to have as well. We had a wonderful time and it was a great trip.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for the use of your beautiful house. We are a family of 7, and it was perfect for us. We especially enjoyed the lanai. Such a treat as my husband sat there most of the time with the binoculars.

We enjoyed the NaPali tour, Waimea Canyon, and ATV Kipu. Ate at the Grove Cafe twice and loved the atmosphere. Loved the beaches at Polihale, Salt Pond, and Poipu.

Great retreat home in Kauai for couples or families

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were joined by 2 friends to stay at this lovely home in Kekaha. We loved the lanai especially the sliding doors which we used every day. As the weather was perfect for the 2 weeks we were there - we spent most of our time out on the lanai. My husband also loved the hot tub. We also enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen. Chad as rental manager and Sara as the Island contact were very responsive to a couple of issues that arose. If this property remains available in the future, we suggest having some lanai furniture easier to get out of for older folks. We definitely loved this home and highly recommend it to couples or families. There are not many close restaurants so it worked well that we liked to cook in - stopping at Costco in Lihue was a lifesaver.

Perfect for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We simply loved this home, the location and the awesome feature of the sliding doors to the lanai that totally disappear leaving unobstructed view and opening to the inside.

Of the many homes we have rented thru Chad this is mt favorite and plan on returning to rent it again.

Anniversary Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

Hale Kahakai was the perfect place to celebrate our 45th anniversary with family. You walked in and the ocean was right in front of you... our tone for the week was set! The house was stunning and very clean. We made it 'home' very fast. We spent all our time on the lanai, when there. The ability to walk across the road to spend beach time was fantastic!

Kekaha was so nice and low keyed. Everything we needed, was a very easy drive. Waimea canyon is just up the road, Polihale beach is an interesting road trip , but worth it!

Loved this place, it was all we hoped it would be.

Beautiful home - WE HAD A GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being in quiet Kekaha - so peaceful and away from other people. We explored the Waimea Canyon, hiking Honapu Ridge and the Alakai Swamp (both amazing). Polihale Beach in the morning is deserted. Poke from Ishihara in Waimea is great. We loved sitting on the lanai and watching humpback whales play and breach, watching the local kids play in the waves and then watching the sun set. The house itself is gorgeous- beautiful kitchen, fantastic open wall to the ocean, amazing wrap-around lanai, flowers all over in the garden, master bath is incredible. You will hear some traffic noise from the road in front of the house, but it fades early in the afternoon/evening. We simply loved this house and didn't want to come home!

Girls week

  • 5 of 5

This house is just as described. Very private with gorgeous views of the ocean. Spent hours on the lanai. Came for a girls week but would be great for families as well. Great beaches close by. Best weather on the island on the west side.
