  • Review of Hale Yangkey, Hanalei, Kauai

    "Our stay at Hale Yangkey in Jan, 2016, could not have been better. It is a beautiful home in the perfect island style, with spacious rooms, beautiful hardwood floors, nice, comfortable furniture, and a complete gourmet kitchen. The living quarters are on a second floor, with large garage underneath, so ventilation is excellent and very cool. Flat screen TVs in every bedroom, great, updated bathrooms (the master is huge), this house was great for our family of five. Hanalei beach, one of the most beautiful in the world, is literally a three minute walk from Hale Yangkey; and the restaurants and bars of Hanalei town are easy walking distance. Our favorites are Hanalei Gourmet(ask for a gin "Crush" from the bar), Kalypso and Tahiti Nui (casual), and The Dolphin (more upscale- wonderful teriyaki ahi, the specialty). The house is large (we could have had a party for 30 people--we didn't) and has a great, private lanai for relaxing or serving a meal. The house is so close to the beach that it was easy to carry a bottle of wine to the beach to watch the sunset, or take an early morning walk on the beach before breakfast. The weather was fantastic for our stay during early Jan, lots of sun and cool temperatures at night. We had one plumbing problem in one of the bathrooms one evening; we called, went to dinner, and when we returned, the problem was fixed. The owners are obviously very attentive, which we appreciated. Also, we arrived very late our first night and the owners made sure that the lights were on. Very considerate. Would highly recommend this property."

  • The most idyllic natural setting – an absolute gem in the hidden heart of Kauai's North Shore

    "We absolutely loved our stay at the Red Ginger Hale on Kauai’s North Shore. It really is one of the most spectacular settings we have come across on our travels. The property is a stunning oasis buried in the rainforest. The surrounds are endlessly green with a sleepy atmosphere and the unit itself is retreat-like with comfortable furnishings, soft day beds, an expansive dining space and large windows throughout that face the beautiful greenery and nearby mountains. We honestly could have spent all four days just enjoying the serenity of the space. Just a note that the road to Red Ginger is a dirt road, full of potholes. We found it to be a fun and adventurous drive, but it was a challenge in our small economy-sized rental car. A Jeep or 4WD would handle the terrain far better. This really is a dream location and we would return tomorrow if we could!"

  • Excellent location and a very comfortable stay

    "The large studio is in a great location. It truly is a short, short walk to Hanalei Bay, which by the way, is the best beach ever. We swam in the ocean practically every day because the ocean floor is just sand -- no rocks or coral. The studio is also just a short walk from the fun town of Hanalei. We only got in our car twice when we traveled about 10 minutes to Princeville to play golf. The rental was clean and the owner is very welcoming and responsive. The bed is super comfortable, including the pillows -- better than most high end hotels. Room for improvement: the shower spout should be replaced since it's clogged, so the water falls out more than sprays out, and the tv isn't the easiest to operate (really I think the remote just needs brand new batteries). But these are small nits that are easily remedied. Overall, the stay was great!!"

  • Want to give it a 5 star but....

    "We stayed for a week May 2016. The layout was perfect for our family of 5.5. We were able to have our adult children in the main house with their baby while we enjoyed the separate master suite. The bathroom in the master was really small. The toilet paper holder had no where to go but in the middle of the room. And there was really no space to put toiletries - I had to keep it all on the shelves in the bedroom, just inconvenient. We kept the windows open and the breeze kept us comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked - nothing missing that we needed. And super clean also.There was a great supply of beach towels. The furniture in the living room was icky, but I have since been told it was replaced. The locations was perfect for access to the beach/pier. Sunsets were spectacular. I though parking might be an issue but it was not. Loved being so close to town and appreciated the bikes. Do not miss Tahiti Nui in town. We made use of the surf board using it as a paddle board on the river. We also used the cooler and some other toys so it was great to have those. The yard is huge with a really funky tiki bar. The lanai is awesome! We could sit and people watch all day. The seating was bolted to the ground so you could not move any of it and it was for 4 only which I found odd for a house that rented for 6.The location was terrible for noise. I expected traffic because of the parking lot and lots of people visiting the pier. But it was unbelievable! It wasn't the expected traffic, it was the constant burning out of the parking lot all night. We were jolted out of sleep at 2:00 am, 3:00 am, 4:00 am, 5:00 am - by beach goes who needed to let the world know they were leaving. We watched one evening, and the same truck came and went at least 4 times, fishtailing and showering gravel from the parking lot to the street for at least a hundred feet each time. We noticed the police there quite a few times. So sad but a result of the popularity of the area. The service we received regarding the booking and subsequent questions was outstanding. Immediate reply to all of my emails. Overall, the experience was excellent. Knowing the noise level now, I am not sure we would stay again unless the area was monitored better at night. It was just noise, we never felt unsafe. This issue is out of their control and not a reflection of the management of the house and it is the only reason I could not give it 5 stars."
