  • Loved this house!!

    "This house was perfect for our extended family who were in Kauai for my daughter's wedding. The house is spacious, and the layout worked perfectly for us. It is conveniently located in Princeville and is walking distance to the grocery store and a few restaurants. The drive to Hanalei is less than five minutes. The agency that handled the rental was very professional and responsive. The bathroom in the downstairs master bedroom could use updating, but really it was not an issue. We would definitely stay in this house again if we needed to accommodate a large group."

  • Great location. Great view. Plenty of room.

    "We stayed at Hale Makana with another family (total of 10 people) for 10 nights. The location is great. It is only about 5 minutes from the grocery store, gas, and a few restaurants--all in the same parking lot--in Princeville. It's also only about 10 minutes from Hanalei, which has plenty of restaurants, shops, churches, and activities (including kayaking, hiking, and the beach at Hanalei Bay). The view from the backyard is amazing--Mt. Makana, Queen's Bath, the endless Pacific Ocean, and sunsets. The trail to Queen's Bath is also very close (just a short walk) to this house. The house also had plenty of room for our group of 10 to hang out, visit, play games, and eat meals together."

  • Beyond all expectations!

    "This was our first trip to Kauai and we stayed for two weeks. From start to finish, the whole experience and trip could not have been more perfect and romantic! The owners were very, very helpful and accommodating. We felt like a king and queen in a private castle! The house is in Princeville on the North Shore of Kauai and conveniently located with a short ride to beaches, shops and markets. The grounds of the house are quite lush, with all sorts of trees and flowers and birds gathering and singing throughout the day. And yes, there are reminders of island life with chickens and rosters ambling through and on the move so no big deal. Actually, I welcomed the quaint sight and sounds of the roosters - they beat the heck out the sound of NYC garbage trucks 24-7! The house is fully set-up, multi-windowed and the rooms have ceiling fans and there are additional floor standing fans. All the snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc. are housed in the garage. The kitchen and outside grill provide choices for where and how to cook and eat “home” to take a break from restaurants. Sitting outside in the back deck area is lovely as the trees and vegetation create a great dense visual wall between properties. The clothes washer and dryer facilities were a plus – especially to return home with clean clothes. The master bedroom and two- sink bathroom were very comfortable and stocked with sheets, blankets, towels, soaps, etc. Upstairs included several bedrooms but we especially loved the lanai (an outside veranda/sitting room) for reading or having coffee while watching the palm trees sway or catching a rainbow. The beaches - Hanalei, Anini, Tunnels- are very, very close - and simply breathtakingly beautiful and clean and sandy; the shells are unlike anything we had seen; even if it rains for a few minutes, find shelter because we saw double rainbows on several days!!! Be sure to get to Queens Bath - spectacular and worth the hike and watching waves crash upon lava rocks!!! We highly recommend working with the owners and staying at this house; you will not be disappointed."

  • North Shore Pardise

    "My family and I spent two weeks at this wonderful home. The house, pool and lanai were clean and lovely. We have Hawaiian o'hana and the house was great for entertaining. The amazing view made me want to see the sunrises. The pool was great especially when the adults needed a break and the kids still had energy to burn. Don't miss the beach/cove just a short hike down the hill. It is magic and very private. The snorkeling is amazing and there are sea turtles just off the north tip of the cove. Also, Samantha was great to work with. We had a few very minor maintenance issues during our stay and they were resolved the same day."
