About Kauai Vacation Rentals
It all began with a vision. A desire to share the magical island of Kauai with the world. And, founder, Lucy Kawaihalau, has dedicated her life to that goal through Kauai Vacation Rentals. "In a vacation rental home or condo, you really feel like you're living here," reflects Lucy, "so bringing together home owners and guests to achieve the 'best fit' is only a part of our distinguished reputation. Our responsibilities are twofold. For our owners, we provide the best management and maintenance services so they can rest easy, knowing their homes are meticulously cared for, since they may be thousands of miles away from their investment. For our guests, we believe they should be treated like royalty." And, it is the respect for the guest that gained Kauai Vacation Rentals recognition throughout the world. A friendly team dedicated to serving the needs of guests, with attention to all the details, makes it all possible. "A vacation to Kauai is so meaningful," adds Lucy. "For some, it may be the trip of a lifetime. For others, it may be a yearly event. This is a splendid place to relax. Our guests are 'energized' when they go home. That's what we mean when we say, 'magical Kauai.' " This genuine business model embodies the Hawaiian word, 'Aloha,' and it has gained much recognition within the industry and business venues, including numerous awards. Many glowing articles have been written, from Kauai Business & Real Estate Magazine, Hawaii Business, and internationally distributed Travel & Leisure Magazine to famed Fortune Magazine. In fact, Lucy Kawaihalau was personally honored with coveted awards from the Small Business Administration and Kauai Chamber of Commerce for her successful business achievements. Lucy concludes, "I am deeply grateful for our recognition and awards. Yet, it is the phone call, with heartfelt and glowing remarks about a visit to Kauai from a satisfied guest that brings us great joy. Therein lies our greatest achievement."

This is the most amazing vacation home!
This house has a big WOW factor. The pictures can’t capture how gorgeous it is. We stayed here for one week in April with our extended family and it was a trip of a lifetime. The south shore is almost always sunny, and this house comes loaded with everything. There were boogie boards, chairs, snorkel gear, beach toys, umbrellas, the works.
The rooms are huge! Gorgeous furniture, clean and high quality. I cannot recommend this house highly enough. I hope to come back again!!
Gigi fest 2018
I am not sure I can put into words our stay. I planned this family reunion with my four siblings to celebrate a big birthday for me.. They were all a little reluctant to join in but when I sent them the info on the location and the house they agreed to go. My sister and I had been to your place last year with my nephew Skip Cocci, so we knew what to expect.. I can safely say they were all very impressed and loved it... We had plans for everyone to come and go as they pleased, we ended up doing everything together and spent every night around the dinning room table and out on the porch.. telling stories of our youth.. I am the youngest so it was great to hear the older ones tell their stories.. I was 21 when we lost our mom and hearing stories of her being told around that big table reminded me of many days spent at my grandparents house... We all had a wonderful time and the house brought a peace to us all... I hope to come back again next year.. the beach, sun sets and the stars were amazing.... thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home...
It is so neat to hear about the wonderful experiences our guests enjoy at Pakala. These are what make us so happy to be able to share our grandparents’ home with truly lovely families. Mahalo nui loa for your kind words and for helping us to maintain our treasured legacy.
A great old plantation home with incredible beach access and a lanai which captures
the breezes and views. Our group of 11 had a wonderful week.
Many, many thanks for you kind review. It's so nice to hear when our guests enjoy our home as much as we do. Be sure to come back!
Spectacular location, delightful plantation house.
Everyone agreed this was an ideal facility for our gathering. Beautiful sunsets, private beach spacious plantation house that was built in the 50s but has been very well maintained with a full time caretaker. Very private and huge grounds. All around delightful.
Mahalo for your kind words. We hope you'll come stay again at our family home.
Best Thanksgiving Ever
I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to write this review--I guess I just wanted to hold the special memories of our time at Pakala Plantation Estate close for a bit longer. Our group of ten from Alabama, Maryland, New York, and Germany all agree that this trip to Kauai was so wonderful that it will be hard to find a better place to vacation ever again.
I am originally from Oahu, but we chose Kauai as the place to celebrate our family Hawaii Thanksgiving trip mostly because of the opportunity to stay in this beautiful house at this stunning location. As a local girl, I learned about the Robinson family in school, so being able to spend time in a place owned by members a family with incredible Hawaiian history was something I could not pass up.
The property itself is perfect. A lovingly tended homestead that captures the grace of Old Hawaii--acres of gardens surrounded by a lava rock wall that has been there for generations, oceanfront with Niihau in the distance-too spectacular for words. For some, the property might appear to be too far away from "the action," but it's not--it is perfect for day trips, then returning "home" to quiet seclusion-- if you can drag yourself off the front porch.
We were amazed by the size of the house--five large bedrooms with their own baths (plus a bonus bedroom connected to the master suite), a large, fully stocked kitchen, butlers pantry, two utility rooms, outside half-bath, living, dining, and TV rooms. There was never a problem finding a quiet spot to read or nap. I was little concerned about having to cook thanksgiving dinner in a rental house kitchen, but it was no problem at all. In fact, I think the kitchen was better equipped than my own--two refrigerators, two ovens, tons of prep space with a separate place for clean-up, plus a kitchen table that seats six. For mealtimes, the huge extension table in the dining room comfortably seated all ten of us (plus guests a few times), complete with china and cut glassware.
I could go on and on and on. Pakala felt like the Hawaii of my youth. Tom and I are so grateful for the opportunity to spend time creating memories with our family at such a wonderful place.
Mahalo nui for such a nice review Tom & Julie. We are so delighted when our guests appreciate as do we the magic of our family home at Pakala. Looking forward to your return!
With much aloha,
Philip & Dawn Keat
College roommate reunion
The perfect place for 3 college buddies to reunite with their families. Spacious, secluded, quiet, in a stunning spot on the beach, this is a prime example of a plantation estate. The owners went our of their way to make sure our time there was special, and it was. All of us, children and grandchildren included, had a spectacular week from the early morning coffee on the porch inhaling the tropical fragrance and watching the surfers, to swimming and walking on the beach, to spectacular sunsets in the evening followed by magical views of the milky way. Tucked in at night we drifted off to sleep at night listening to the waves in the distance after a perfect day. If you are looking for unpretentious elegance and beauty this is the place to make lasting memories.
Sharing Pakala with you all was what it's about! Thank you so much for your comments and for visiting us at our family home. You made it even more magical.
