E Komo Mai and Welcome to the SUNNY west side of Kauai. With less than 15 inches of rain annually, and 15 miles of white sandy beach just a short walk away, why go anywhere else? Guarantee there will be “no rain on your parade” that can spoil your vacation.
Hale Ilima is an upscale beach cottage in the true sense of the word. It’s delightful island style architecture and design will delight you in every way. There are 3 generous size bedrooms with 2 baths. The high ceilings and abundant windows bring the light and the breezes in, to give it that tropical feel.
All new 500 ct. bed linens and thick towels await you. There is a King, Queen, and twin bedroom to accommodate every travelers needs. The twin room can be made into a King as well for couples traveling together.
A new 40’” LCD TV with cable, wireless internet, and free local and long distance calling are just some of the special features we offer.
Everything you need for a beach vacation is here from beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels and umbrellas, and did I mention the ocean, sun, and surf? A short 5-minute walk to a lifeguarded beach insures your swimming safety. This begins a nearly deserted stretch of white sand that goes for miles…..all the way to the Na Pali Coast. Venture off to Polihale Beach, a wild natural beach, with majestic sand dunes serving as a backdrop.
Take a hike in the Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” as Mark Twain called it. Instead of driving for hours to get there from other parts of the island, you are only a mile away from the back road leading directly to the top of the canyon and the NaPali coast cliffs.
A stop at the Shrimp Station, or Island Tacos, for lunch will make the wait worthwhile, finished off with the island’s best sno cones at Jo-Jo Shave ice.
If it is a resort atmosphere and dining experience that you are looking for, you are only 25 minutes for the resort area of Poipu Beach. Here you will find world famous hotels, coves of white sand, upscale shopping and dining opportunities.
When your day is near an end, this is the ONLY place to be for SUNSET. From the comfort of your lanai, you can salute the end of the day with the sun setting out over the ocean. Can it get any better than this?
Come and enjoy life...as it should be... at the beach.

About Scott Worner
I have traveled all over the world, but home is on Oahu.
Scott Worner purchased this House in 2011
Why Scott Worner chose Kekaha
I lived in this town on Kauai as a young child, and always wanted to return to the place of my wonderful childhood memories.
What makes this House unique
Living at the beach in Kekaha is an authentic Hawaiian experience. This old sleepy plantation town is 'at the end of the road'. This is the farthest western town in the USA. It is also the driest and most likely sunny spot on the island., This is were a 15 mile stretch of white sand beach begins and ends, at Polihale Beach and the cliffs of the Na Pali Coast. The town is also at the base of the Waimea Canyon, named the 'Canyon of the Pacific' by Mark Twain. Breathtaking canyon scenery and numerous hiking opportunities await you. Beautiful sunsets over the ocean can only be seen from this part of the island. Views of the island of Ni'ihau, and whale watching in the Winter season right from your lanai.

Property was gorgeous. Stunning views.
The house couldn’t have been more perfect. Great location away from tourist congestion. Quiet street. The beach right across the street is hardly ever occupied, seems private. Home had all the kitchen supplies you could need, some toys for the beach. Perfect!
Great house... right across the street from the beach... loved the comfy beach chairs and extra beach gear (including coolers and boogie board) provided by the host, Scott... spectacular sunsets from lanai... comfortable beds... nice sheets...lots of space... enough room to dance!! big kitchen, washer/dryer... great location... meditative surf crashing on beach... endless beautiful beach for walking... privacy... great little town nearby for essentials... All you need for a relaxing, private get-away. We loved it and we will definitely be back!!
We had a fabulous time at the cottage. The description, location and amenities were even better than described. We felt at home the moment we walked through the doors. Each morning we enjoyed having coffee on the lanai looking over the ocean and each evening we watched the sunsets, AMAZING!!! The local market down the street had fabulous Poke ... we visited several times for an evening snack of poke! We would rent this cottage again when possible, we give it a 10 star review!!!
Beautiful and perfect stay!!!
We had an unforgettable time at Hale Ilima. Everything was perfect, the house is beautiful with an ocean view that looks from the main living room and dining room. Everything is perfect, as described. The house is perfectly equipped and its location is convenient, close to tourist sites but located in a quiet area. We will definitely return to this beautiful home when we have the fortune to return to Kauai.
Having traveled a long way (from Colombia) to get here, I am so happy to hear that you had a wonderful stay.
The ocean vistas, and sound of the surf, can make it a true beach experience.
We hope to see you return in the near future.
We were looking for a place away from the crowds and we found it perfectly here. You get a true local Hawaiian feel in the town of Kekaha on the west side of Kauia. The people are so friendly. The road to Waimea Canyon is just 2 blocks from the house and the house is a perfect base for exploring the canyon. The house is also located one block from Kekaha Beach Park. The quaint town of Waimea is just 3 miles away. Several nice little places to eat there. JoJo's Shave Ice & Island Tacos is a must! The more swimmable beaches of Salt Pond and Poipu are easy 15-20 minutes from the house. However, our favorite beach was right across the street for our house. We loved relaxing by the beach listening to the waves hit the rocks and watching the sailboats go by on their way to the Napali Coast. Port Allen, the start of cruises to the coast is also 15-20 minutes away. If you want a resort feel, go to Poipu or Princeville. But if you want a quiet place to stay with easy access to all that Kauia has to offer, this is your place. Plentiful beach supplies are provided including cooler and beach towels and chairs. Laundry facilities including detergent are provided. The inside of the house is spotless and very spacious with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Portable AC units are provided and kept the house comfortable particularly at night. In the heat of the day, it struggles to stay cool but what are you doing at your house in Kauia in the middle of the day?!?! I loved my mornings and evenings sitting on the lanai listening to the ocean. Bugs were never a problem and there is a grill and table on the lanai if you wanted to eat at home. Scott is quick to answer any questions should you need assistance. I can't speak highly enough about this piece of heaven on the quiet, sunny and dry west side of the most beautiful of all of the islands. We hope to return in the future!
Thank you John for such a detailed and extensive review of your stay. I think anyone reading this will have a very accurate expectation of a stay at Hale Ilima.
What's not to like? Sun, ocean, sunsets, and almost NO BUGS!
We hope that you will find another opportunity to return, and relax, at the special place in the sun.
A lovely base for exploring Kauai
This home was really perfect as well as the location very close to Waimea valley and Polihale. Furthermore, the Kekaha beach, with a lifeguard is within walking distance. 10 minutes drive and you can swim at the calmer Salt Pond Beach.
The house is very welcoming with an airy atmospere and with the AC some hours before bedtime was enough to create a comfortable temperature for sleep with just the fans working slowly..
Every morning at dawn we walked and enjoyd the beautiful beach. Every evening we went down to the beach again to watch the stars and galaxies of the the Milky way. During the nights the sound of the surf beating the beach lulled us into calm sleep.
Breakfasts and dinners prepared in the functinal and well equipped kitchen were enjoyed on the lanai with a great view of the ocean. The sunset from the lanai is worth some rush to be in time for.
The house is very clean and no bugs within sight! Not even mosquitos on the lanai in the evenings.
Scott is quick to answer questions and saved no efforts to make our stay a very pleasant one!
Ask for the late check-out IF you have a late flight. The relaxed last day was worth it.
Thank you Jan for the nice words about your stay. I think people are often surprised at the lack of bugs, especially mosquitos.
You complete review of your stay was wonderful to read.
We hope to welcome you back in the near future.
