Peaceful Stay In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife & 2 pre-teen kids and my sister and her fiancé just finished a week long vacation at this home in Haena. We've been to Kauai several times and this was by far our best trip yet. Even with all the rain! The location at Tunnels and the huge, beautiful yard made it seem like we were living in paradise. Worth every penny and we will absolutely be back!

Unbeatable Location--Beautiful Beyond Words

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed--the location & hospitality cannot be beat. Photos do not do it justice. Fun was had by our family (which included two of our teenagers). Thank you Willi, for the accommodations & care.

When we arrived it was like stepping into paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Makua Ma Ke Kai. Ha'ena has the best weather on the north west side of the island. There is no better beach than right in front of the house! (Ask any local!) This estate is an absolute paradise! Everything was perfect! Loads of fun beach toys, beach chairs, snorkels, masks, fins and beach towels! Loved our times on the beach everyday. Sunrise and sunset is stunning from the upper patio. Willi has everything you possibly need in the kitchen. We planned to eat dinner out a couple times, but fell in love with making dinner every night at home! Enjoy hiking at end of the road. Kayaking and paddle boarding on Hanalei River.

We will definitely be back to stay in this beautiful home!! Thank you Willi for our perfect family vacation!

Stock up on food/drinks at Costco and grocery stores in Lahue

  • 4 of 5

This house is amazing and the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the drive. I didn't read anything in the other reviews about the 5 or 6 one-lane bridges, which are quite difficult to deal with on a daily basis. So, stock up and plan to stay close to home. Also, we heard that the Foodland in Lahaina is the most expensive grocery store in the US. There is tons to do without ever leaving and you really won't want to - it's breathtaking!!! Not sure where the property line is but the yard is to DIE FOR! We played catch in our bare feet and never stepped on a sticker or sleepy grass. There are tiny "pine cones" near the pine trees but plenty of yard without going near those trees. The kitchen has everything you will need (pans are not great but knives are good) and there is a bbq grill (charcoal) so REALLY stock up and cook your meals. Not so great for Moms, but better than the drive to expensive and marginal restaurants. The snorkeling is world-class and there is *some* snorkel gear. A lot of boogie boards but not a lot of surf. We walked 2 miles up the beach and saw only a few people and the beach right in front of the house stayed relatively uncrowded. The decor is very beachy; this is not a high-end rental rather a very comfortable, beach-front cottage. The bedrooms are split; a king and 2 twins divided by the bathroom on each side of the living room. There is a downstairs covered lania, a half-bath, and also an outdoor shower. We never showered inside!!! Lots of frogs at night, lots of geckos in the day and chickens/roosters eating all the bugs! One last thing I have to say is that the constant helicopters were kind of a nuisance, especially if they spotted a whale and circled around for 10 minutes or if 3 were circling around...oy. We spotted at least 9 whales from the upper lania so take your binoculars if you go during the winter months. All in all, we would LOVE to stay at this house again!!!

Spectacular location and views; huge yard

  • 5 of 5

The location and views from this property are absolutely stunning and photos do not do it justice. Surreal views of "Bali Hai" as it rises up just over a mile from the property. Relatively easy access directly to Tunnels Beach (through a small, slightly sloping wooded area off the side of the property). The yard is very large (over 2 acres) so it is an excellent space for yard games or lounging. The home itself is very charming and a bit on the rustic side (basic bathroom finishes, "cabin-like" feel with the lightly stained wood paneled walls and ceilings). The kitchen is large with newer appliances, plenty of cooking gear/dining wear, a good selection of basic seasoning/spices; and there is ample dining and living room space surrounding it. The large ocean-facing lanai has an outdoor dining table with space for 8 and those amazing mountain and ocean views as mentioned above. There is no A/C but ceiling fans, plenty of windows and patio doors allow the trade breezes to flow through and keep the interior comfortable. It's a split floorplan with two bedrooms sharing a bathroom on each wing. On each side, one bedroom fronts the water with a king bed while the other faces the rear of the property with two twin beds. All living space is elevated so you do need to climb about 1 1/2 flights of stairs to get up to the lanai and access the home (keep this in mind with older/less mobile guests).

Make sure you stock up on what you need in advance as it's a nearly 90-minute drive from Lihue (where the best concentration of grocery stores and Costco are located). Hanalei town (about a 20 min drive) is relatively close and does have a smaller "Big Save" grocery store and other merchants for other things you'll need during your stay. Keep in mind that the BBQ grill on the property is real charcoal - not gas; so you'll need to stock up on charcoal if you plan to do a lot of grilling. About a 2-minute drive down the highway is the Mediterranean Gourmet which is a very lovely nearby dining option. I didn't try the food but the Mai Tai's were great. There are bicycles in the garage, a ping-pong table, tons of beach gear and beach chairs.

We had four total guests but this house could easily accommodate two families of four (parents in the two master bedrooms, kids in the rear bedrooms). Great space and truly set up to be "home away from home"!
