A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our two families. There was plenty of room and bathrooms for everyone. It was well equipped with all of the beach supplies you would need and the house itself had everything including a well equipped kitchen, big table, plenty of seating areas etc. The hot tube was really nice to come home to as well after a long day of exploring Hawaii. We look forward to staying here again and would highly recommend this place to anyone!

great value and location on the North Shore!

  • 4 of 5

We thought this was a great choice of house on the North Shore. We loved:

- plenty of space and sleeping areas for our large extended family

- decent kitchen for cooking. We cooked almost all of our meals and were pleased to have a functional kitchen

- hot tub! especially during the cooler season, we loved soaking at the end of the afternoon

- owners had great communication and were very responsive with minor issues

- good location in a quiet neighborhood. well-located for day trips to all of the North Shore locations

- we adored Hideaways Beach, a pleasant 15 minute walk from the house. It was my favorite beach of the trip!

- overall excellent value on an expensive island

Could use a spruce-up and deep cleaning, we gave this feedback to the owners who I'm sure will be on top of it. We'd be happy to stay here again.

Christmas on the island

  • 4 of 5

The house was just right for the 10 of us, (7 adults, 3 children). A well stocked kitchen, plenty of beach stuff to use and a lovely outdoor space to relax in made this home very comfortable and user friendly. However, we were under the impression that we would be able to park in the garage but there was a vehicle already in there and the bikes and beach stuff took up the other half so we utilized the driveway for parking our cars, not a huge issue but it made for some very hurried in and out of the car/house due to all the rain. Check out time was a bit confusing as well, we read on the listing that check out was 11am but the print out for the directions said 10am so be aware. Overall our stay was great, restful and merry.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our home and in Kauai. We are sorry that you were not able to fit your car into the garage, although there is plenty of parking in our driveway! The bikes and beach gear seem to have grown! Our check out time has always been at 10 AM, clearly stated on the rental agreement and access information, however the default settings on this website keep going back to the wrong time. We apologize for any confusion and will try to clear it up on the vrbo site. We always appreciate your feedback as it helps us assist our guests in having a wonderful stay at Hale Ailana.

Great Stay for our Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We found this home to be very comfortable and greatly appreciated the use of all the beach gear and bikes the owners make available to guests. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with all of the essentials. The tradewinds kept the house very comfortable and you can hear the surf at night. Proximity to nearby attractions and beaches is ideal, including Hideaway Beach, Queen's Bath, the St. Regis Hotel and many shopping and dining options in Princeville and Hanalei. We had one minor issue with the hot tub and the caretaker was very responsive and resolved the issue right away. Overall it was a great rental experience and we would stay here again.
