  • 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!"

  • We love the Mermaid House !

    "This was our second stay at the Mermaid House and it was better than ever. Great location, quiet neighbors, lots of windows for cool evening trade winds, and bug free! We will be staying a third time at the Mermaid House in 2018. This is a great beach house, not to be confused with a fancy house with granite counters, but it is clean, and spacious and we felt right at home. Very short walk to a beach and near Tunnels and Ke'e two of our most favorite beaches for snorkeling. Best beaches ever!!"

  • Perfect Hanalei family vacation

    "We just returned from a week in this lovely cottage. Perfect for our little family of 3. We took advantage of the perfect location for long walks on the beach, views from the lanai and huge lawn (great for hide and seek!). Has everything you need - highly recommended."

  • One of the best Vacations we ever had!

    "We are a young couple from New York City who needed a romantic getaway. Our review is based on the house for 2 people. Booking: We booked on VRBO. Alexandra contacted us immediately with instructions and offered any assistance. Julie also contacted us and offered to help with anything we needed. Arrival: We came in the middle of the night and after renting a car (Jeep Wrangler 4 door- $75 per day) we stopped at a safeway and cvs which was a few minutes away from airport. Did a full shopping of food, water, liquor etc. The drive to the house was about an hour or so, it was our first time in Kauai so we were driving relatively slow. It was pitch black and we could not see anything, lots of winding roads and bridges that are 1 lane for 2 way traffic. The address does not show up on google maps so it was a little adventure finding the house when its pitch black outside, go to this mile marker, look for fire hydrant and then make right at the bamboo fence. It worked out fine, the instructions winded up being perfect. House: We got to the house about 2am. Our initial reaction was, pretty nice house, as advertised. Pictures were accurate. We were exhausted and pretty much passed out immediately. When we woke up the next morning our opinion went from pretty nice house to wow, this is the PERFECT house. The views are breathtaking, you have complete privacy. The bathroom was very nice, everything was clean. There is an energy that radiates from the house, its calming, peaceful and special. Driving around in the Jeep with the roof removed was fun and a pleasant change from driving in New york city. There are barely any radio stations on the island, i would recommend bringing some cd's with you. Activities: We did kayaking- $50 - Very fun Helicopter Ride with landing at waterfall - $700 for 2 people- Amazing views but not a smooth ride. Skip if you dont have a strong stomach. The beach here is nothing like miami or carribean, the ocean has personality. The waves are intense. Everyday we went to the beach "Tunnels" (3 min from house), there were "No swimming" signs. Didn't stop us but it was quite an experience. Overall the house is amazing, Kauai is amazing and we could not have asked for a better trip. We will definitely be back to Kauai and we would definitely book this house again and thats pretty much the best compliment you could ever give."
