  • Relaxing peaceful escape!

    "My husband and I had an amazing and relaxing week staying at the Song of the Jungle, and would love to come again! Every morning we awoke to jungle birds singing, without any noises of traffic or people. We loved having our breakfast out on the deck, listening to the birds and enjoying the solitude of nature. The bedrooms are perfect, with a total of 3 beds to choose from. The main bedroom has an extremely comfortable bed. There is another bed in the kitchen (there was some clicking noise from the fridge, but it was minimal. We liked how the curtains tied up during the day for light, and we could put them all down at night to make this room feel private), and the third bed on the lanai is very close to nature (your head is right next to the screen, so all of the nature noises - bird calls, breezes, rain - feels like it is right there). We really enjoyed having a kitchen, and outdoor grill, which was adequate to make meals to enjoy on the small deck. We appreciated that Dawn has kindly left items that were helpful for beach outings, such as a cooler with freezer packs in the freezer, beach chairs, snorkel gear, plenty of sets of beach towels, etc. Also that we could use the washer/dryer as needed. The outdoor shower is divine. Just a last note - The location is perfect for people who love Hanalei/northern Kaua'i. It was very close to Tunnels beach , Ke'e beach (great sunset location). However, on the days where we explored the rest of the island (Waimea canyon, Poipu), it was quite a lot of driving. It is not easy to zip back and forth from the rental to town and back multiple times a day. The road from Hanalei to the rental is narrow and winds around continually, with several one lane bridges, and it requires a lot of concentration. This makes the area feel removed, which we loved. Driving this at night or in rain can be tricky. It could be dangerous if you are planning to go out each night in Hanalei and drink alcohol, etc.. However, it was perfect to spend the majority of our time locally and a few longer day trips. Also, the driveway is pretty steep and a bit slippery in the rain. We parked at the bottom and walked up as needed. We loved Song of the Jungle. Dawn was sweet, friendly and kind. On the day that we checked out, she even let us come back in the late afternoon after our day at the beach, to take showers in the outdoor shower before we headed to the airport for a late flight home. We really appreciated this. We hope to be back!"

  • Great cozy place close to beach and town

    "We loved this old beach house. It's a little rough around the edges and well lived in but it was such a great location! Right around the corner from beach and a easy 10 min walk to town. The beds were very comfortable and it has many windows and doors that open and provide a nice cross breeze. The beach chairs, toys, wagon and bike were a huge plus! Great place for kids or two couples traveling together. The loft was great for additional kids too. Kristen was great to work with."

  • Beautiful Property, Great Location!

    "I really liked the property! It was very spacious and fit myself and seven of my friends comfortably. Loved how the house had everything we needed for a one week stay. The proximity to the beach and the supermarket was also a plus! I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a place to stay in Kaua'i!"

  • When an owner cares...

    "My husband and I have stayed in vacation rentals in about 20 different countries around the world. We consider ourselves savvy renters and do our best to research our options, weigh the reviews of others, and make educated choices before committing - especially when we're staying more than a night or two. We rented the downstairs unit at Hale Reed for 8 nights in April 2016. Here's what you should know: 1. Sally is incredibly responsive right away - she'll answer any questions you have about the house prior to any agreement and sends all rental documentation in a timely manner 2. This is not a Best Western - this is not one of 10 other condos the owner rents out - this is a home. Sally TAKES PRIDE in her house and is serious about renting to people who will take care of it while they're there. So, don't be surprised when she asks you to do that. 3. The bottom unit is NOT a basement. It is the lower floor of a two story home. It has lots of space and lots of beautiful light. 4. It is steps to the beach... I mean, less than one minute walking. 5. The owner takes pride in her home - this is obvious in many ways but the first big clue was when we emailed her about a minor issue we had with our stay... her response was to call us right away and amend the situation immediately. She offered to go above and beyond to make us comfortable... I've honestly never seen anyone so eager to make perfect strangers happy. 6. Sally saved our butts... in a serious way. I won't bore you with details - but part of this "saving of butts" is her calling us at 2am her time (on the mainland) to ensure that we were safe and comfortable and VERY well taken care of in an otherwise confusing and frustrating experience. Her generosity that night and in the days to come will never be forgotten. We are eternally grateful... she owed us absolutely nothing but took care of us like family even though she'd never met us before. THIS is why you want to stay at a place like Hale Reed... the person behind the rental is real and really actually sincerely cares about you and your comfort while you're there."
