Why Bill Morgan chose North Shore

I have been returning to Kauai since first living here in 1975. Hale Pulelehu'a is located on the best beach on the entire island of Kauai. We designed Hale Pulelehu'a to appeal to our multi-generational family. The house is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the North Shore and is close to so many great activities. There are so many spectacular things to do within walking distance of the house that you may not even want to get in your car!

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

Kudos to Bill Morgan on this beautiful house on the north shore. Beautifully furnished and immaculate. We were there in July so it was warm, but there are lots of fans and windows. I love this spot with the gentle rain at night and morning rainbows. I have a ridiculous number of rainbow photos.

Our party included a couple of seniors who had a hard time with the sand on Banana Beach so we walked up the street to Hanalei Colony Resort in the mornings to get some great sunrise photos from the point. The younger beach walkers can just walk out to the point from the beach path in front of the house. We saw monk seals there which I'd never seen before!

We loved being so close to Ke'e and caught some lovely sunsets from there. A lot of people leave Ke'e just before sunset, so the parking is easy then and there were few people there.

The house itself was perfect for our party of 7. We didn't use the tree house, just the main house. There are 4 bedrooms in the main house with 2.5 baths, a large kitchen overlooking the exquisite garden. There's lots of parking, all kinds of beach gear, a washer and dryer, and an amazing outdoor shower. That shower is fantastic. The incredible shower in the master bath is also pretty amazing, but the outdoor one is my favorite.

Bill was so friendly and quickly responded to all of my questions. Thanks, Bill, for the lovely chat just before our stay, and thank you for providing this delightful house for us to enjoy.

Gorgeous house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We knew we picked the right place for our family vacation when we saw the gushing reviews of this place continuing to come in as we awaited our turn. The only justice we can do in comparison is to say that no review can truly do it justice. The amenities and attention to detail is second to none. We rented the main house and guest house for a "once in a lifetime" family vacation and are already planning the next one! The beach is literally steps away from the front door and don't be surprised if you have it all to yourself. We did so many amazing day trips on this spectacular island but always looked forward to returning to this amazing home! The kitchen is so spacious for cooking family dinners and we will forever remember the laughs we had while enjoying our meals on the balcony, the dining room table, and at the community table outside. There is a huge variety of toys, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and even coolers for day trips. We were also lucky enough to run into the individual who cleans this property on the way out to thank her for the amazing job she did preparing the house for our arrival. I can't imagine that there is a better cleaning company on the island. We have been lucky enough to have used several vacation rentals throughout the years and this one is at the top of our list!

Fantastic Hawaiian Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Extremely clean, well equipped Kauai beach house. We also really enjoyed the Tree house (guest house). At an additional $150/night it may be the best deal on Kauai! Fantastic yard and garden with plumeria, bananas, papayas and a whole lot of other fruits and flowers that I can't name! It really was only 50 steps to an incredible beach where we were able to swim and snorkel. Bill provides lots of beach toys- boogie boards, snorkel gear, lots of kids beach toys and beach chairs and umbrellas. We are all dreaming of our return trip!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Butterfly House is a wonderful place to stay on the North Shore. Especially since our favorite beach is Tunnels and it was within walking distance. Also of note that the house is very clean and well stocked. Our group was able to find privacy due to the large yard and living area. The beach across the street was a bit rough due to the season, but the adults in our group actually liked the big waves and played in the water every day. Just down the beach is an area that is calmer for the more cautious. I really miss the coffee stand. Best blended coffee ever!!! Thank you owners for a wonderful stay.
