  • Home Sweet Home Away from Home in Hanalei

    "We just finished up a 10 night stay at this little gem in Hanalei and we can't recommend it enough!! Wonderful location for hanging in Hanalei or driving to other parts of the island. Rode bikes to the beach, to the little town, and all around the surrounding areas. Literally a one minute bike ride to Grandpa's beach, 5 minutes to the pier. The house was perfect for our family with plenty of towels and linens, beach towels, surf boards, boogie boards, etc. All the dishes, pots and pans you would need to cook when you wanted and a short bike ride or walk to town if you want to eat at a restaurant. Had a couple of minor questions for Lauren, (where's the wine opener? type things) and she was very responsive and helpful! The neighbors were great too and for ten days we got to pretend we lived in Hanalei! We didn't want to go home!!"

  • Family reunion for our 50th Anniversary

    "A total of ten people in three generations of our family had a great time at Hale Hanalei. The short walk to the beach and into Hanalei town made this an ideal location. The home was very well equipped for all our needs and the owners were very friendly and professional to deal with. Thank you for sharing your Kauai home with us."

  • 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."

  • 5 Stars from a finicky guest!

    "To begin, I have to state that I am VERY particular when it comes to accommodations. It is not often that I find a place that I feel deserves 5 stars. This home DOES deserve the 5 stars. We had a family group of 11, including 3 children. Every room is furnished and decorated so comfortably. I loved how the bedrooms were divided into areas that could be semi-closed off if needed/ wanted. The owners thought of the tiniest details; from the "Mrs. Meyers" soaps in each bathroom and kitchen, to the large waste baskets in each room. There were many tour books and guides lining the bookshelf near the huge dining table. We were able to browse and plan our daily activities while enjoying our meals together. These may seem like minute details, however, to me, they make a big statement about the owners and their desire to make our stay comfortable and convenient . There were plentiful bath, beach and kitchen towels as well as extra linens. The kitchen was stocked with any pot, pan or utensil needed to cook great meals. The front porch was a great place to relax in the evenings and watch the kids play in the lush yard. There is also an outdoor shower which was so convenient to get the sand off of the kids after a day at the beach. The beach is just a few minutes walk as are the coffee shops, shave ice stands and restaurants. On Thursdays and Saturdays, the farmers market is just across the street. I can't think of a more convenient place to stay! Staying in the house made me feel right at home, in a small town, without the hustle and bustle of tour buses and condos. If you are thinking of going to Kauai and staying in Hanalei specifically.... DO NOT HESITATE to book this home! You will not be disappointed. Can't wait to go back again one day!!!"
