  • Perfect Beach House in an Idyllic Beach Neighborhood on the North Shore

    "Our family spent 2 relaxing weeks at Hale Alealea in Ha'ena. Four adults and two children (ages 10 and 12). Upon arrival we found the house VERY clean and ready for our stay (this was our 4th family trip to Kauai and our first away from Princeville). It was a pleasure to be in such a quiet and lush beach town. We needed to contact the management agency a couple of times for minor items and they were quick to respond and even came by once to assist with a small issue. Location - Hale Alealea is in a quiet (except for the local roosters) beach neighborhood. The dirt road leading to the house has very little traffic except for those staying in homes on the road. We were comfortable allowing our children to roam around the neighborhood and beach with out us. There were heavy rains before and during our stay and the road was full of fairly deep pot holes (literally, every inch of the dirt road). It made for a very slow and bumpy trip to and from Kuhio Hwy. We would have considered an SUV if we knew about the road before our arrival . Evan the property manger commented after visiting us one day that she needed to rest in the driveway after the trip on the dirt road to the house. Fortunately, about one week into the trip, the county came with machinery to grade the road. After two days of grading the road was smooth as pavement. This was not a major issue for us but should be considered if traveling with elderly or those that get motion sick easily. We considered it part of our experience being in an authentic beach town on the north shore. There are two beach easements on either end of the road that leads to Kepuhi beach. Some swimming areas at both ends when the seas are calm. Hale Alealea - The house has four comfortable bedrooms and three bathrooms. Our children loved the outdoor shower after a day at the beach. We spent many evenings on the very large lanai off the kitchen. We used the BBQ on the lanai many times for dinner. The big kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals (which we did every day). The property grounds are full of manicured mature plants. The home also had a full washing machine and dryer on the ground floor just off the driveway. A great convenience. The owners of this property take great care in maintaining this home. The description of the home is 100% accurate. We would stay in Hale Alealea again! Maholo Hale Alealea owners for sharing your Hale Ohana. Aloha"

  • Wonderful Beach Access

    "This is an absolutely unbeatable location. The quiet North Shore lets you enjoy non-commercial Kauai. The house itself has a large manicured back yard, good for frisbee, football, or lawn darts. Then, you hit the sand of the beach. What a fantastic view and full beaches to choose right by the house or for short walks either way. A terrific surprise for us was the quality of the fish to see on the reef that is right by the house. No need to drive or hike to see many, many gorgeous fish. The wrap-around lanai on the house was perfect for breakfasts, mid-day relaxation, or peacefully waiting out a brief rainstorm. Our family of six used all the beds in the house and found them to be comfortable and more that satisfactory. Having the two day beds in the living room does mean there is no couch, but you should be out at the beach anyway! The only drawback of our stay was when the washing machine went out. The appliances throughout the house are a bit older, but all else worked fine throughout the stay. Highly recommended, mostly for the comfort and quiet of the house and the absolutely magnificent location."

  • Best VRBO Ever!

    "We've stayed at VRBOs on Oahu, the Big Island and in San Francisco. All were nice BUT this was the BEST in terms of location ... paradise right on the water, good snorkeling ... steps from our cottage and appointments ... simply elegant. Equally important ... there were more than enough towels to keep me happy! The owners were on site when we were there. They were attentive to details, welcoming and extremely gracious. Our liaison, Susan, was always responsive and eager to make the experience as close to perfect as it could be."

  • Perfectly Kauai

    "I almost hesitate to write this review because we hope to have the ocean view cottage available for our return in July! But, for anyone looking for a real Kauai experience, look no further. The location is perfect, the cottage is comfortable and the view can't be beat. Haena is heaven on earth and staying in Auntie's cottage made our experience even more memorable. Mahalo!"
