  • Unforgettable Family Vacation

    "My family of 6 (adults) stayed at Hale Kai for 7 magical days in October and we were so sad to leave on our last day! As one of the other reviewers wrote, Hale Kai changed the way we’ll plan our Hawaiian vacations forever. No more of the mega cookie-cutter resorts where you have to drive every day to a swimming beach lugging all your beach gear. The beach on this property is pretty much in the front yard! Needless to say we were out in the warm ocean practically every morning and afternoon. We appreciated the beach gear that the house provided: beach chairs, foam noodles, boards, floaters, etc. (we did bring our own snorkeling gear). The view from the balcony is unforgettable, the forest in the back calming. This is the tropics – so we saw lizards and spiders here and there (not a big deal), but the mosquitos can be bothersome. We just made sure that we’ve sprayed ourselves with mosquito repellant when we’re hanging out on the deck in the evenings. Of course, the house is fully screened so no worries when you’re inside. We were pleased with the layout of the living areas i.e. living, kitchen and dining rooms. We were able to spread out yet still be in conversation with everyone. The furnishings are what I would call “lived-in” – simple, comfortable and clean. The kitchen is roomy and has everything you need to cook, bake or clean. We found pots and pans, silverware, dining ware, serving platters, bowls, baking pans, cloth dish towels, plastic garbage bags, dishwashing liquid, cleaning spray, basic spices, etc. The weather was in the 80’s, a little warm than we expected, but the house is equipped with ceiling and floor fans in all areas so we were comfortable 24/7. The location of the house is on a quiet stretch of Anini Beach, hardly any tourists if at all. A minor inconvenience, which is not the owner’s fault, is the lack of cell phone service (there must not be any cell towers in the area). However the house provides for free Wi-Fi so we were never without internet, and had unlimited (domestic) use of the landline telephone. All in all, this was one of the best vacations my family has ever had and we definitely hope to come back soon!"

  • Plumeria

    "My family of five stayed at Plumeria for two weeks. It was the best vacation we ever had. Everything we needed was supplied. All the beach paraphernalia was there for us to use, beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, and even a kayak! It's a short walk across the street to one of the best beaches on Kauai. Annini beach is protected by a barrier reef, so the waves are never too rough. The Plantation style house is decorated beautifully. It was very comfortable for a family of five. There is a huge wrap around porch, and a screened in dining room. There is also an outdoor shower shielded by the the trees that has amazing shower pressure. We felt like this was the true Hawaii experience, and cannot wait to go back! Bill and Mary Ellen are fantastic hosts. Thank you so much for an amazing vacation!"

  • Maria, Max & the others are speaking the truth

    "All that is to be said is already said by the others: - friendly hosts, - fresh tropical froot right from the trees, - beautiful garden, - birdsong, - a resort away from hectic. This is not yet paradise but gives you a good idea what paradise once will look like."

    "Wow! This was the best vacation spot ever! I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a quiet relaxing place with a stunning view of the ocean and only steps from a sparsely populated beach with good swimming and snorkeling. It is a great place to hang out- inside the house, on the beach and in the yard with the ocean view. I have stayed at Anini beach many times but this was the first time in this house and it was the best! There were good beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and snorkels. Its simple and beautiful. Definitely important to know that the bedrooms are separated by windows that support the ventilation so its find for a couple and their children or two single friends. If you are wanting to be around civilization and restaurants and activities, this is probably not the place for you but then maybe another island would be a better choice. I can't wait to go back!!!"
