  • Good enough for the price

    "We visit Hawaii 3 times a year and always stay in a private home or condo. In Princeville we have always done condos with views of the ocean. This time we decided to try a house with a pool. This house is bargain priced compared to some others with a pool. The house is in decent shape except for the normal rental 'wear and tear'. To us it didn't feel like a home that someone would live in but more of a 'rental house'. The location is great. Nice, quiet neighborhood (except for the occasional yapping dog across the street!). We loved the layout of the house with the pool in the front courtyard and the house wrapped around it. This house is the perfect layout for 2 couples traveling together because the bedrooms are at far corners of the house giving you lots of privacy. The house was very clean inside and the normal Hawaii bugs and ants were very very minimal. There is definitely some items that make the house seem 'bargain'. A couple upgrades would give it a whole different feel. First off the couches in the living room are horrible. So worn and dirty. The arms are completely broken down from being so used that it is uncomfortable to even rest your arm there. They are definitely past their prime and probably should have been replaced a couple years back. The second issue we had were the nasty bed pillows. Every pillow in the house was dirty, stained and just gross. I did complain to the owner who had the housekeeper call me the next day. By that time I had already purchased 2 new pillows myself and found extra pillow cases to double up on the other pillows we ended up using in the house. I told the housekeeper (who was very nice and very concerned) that all those pillows needed to be replaced. Who wants to sleep on something stained and yellow and dirty. Maybe invest in some pillow covers to keep them cleaner. The pool was nice to cool off in at the end of the day. There is lots of outside furniture for relaxing and dining. The garage has plenty of beach chairs, pool floats, beach umbrella, etc. We had a great time on our vacation and it was nice to stay in a private, quiet home."

  • Perfect vacation home

    "we just returned from two glorious weeks at hale o imi loa. we loved the comfort, the spaciousness, the privacy, the outdoor shower and most of all the birds. we recorded their morning sound to take home with us. the house has everything we needed to make our vacation easy and comfortable. the kitchen is fully equipped and the location couldn't be better for north shore exploring. the management company was a pleasure to work with. we highly recommended hale o imi loa."

  • Amazing views, beautiful home, perfect location

    "My family met on Kauai to celebrate our son's wedding. When we first arrived we walked out onto the Lanai and were greeted with the breathtaking view of Hanalei Bay and serenaded by the local birds. Every morning we enjoyed our coffee on the lanai and every evening we watched the sunset from the lanai. This home was the perfect accommodation for our group of 7. It was also large enough to host the rehearsal and reception dinners for 16. The kitchen is so well stocked we were able to avoid renting dishes or buying paper products. The owner responded quickly to all our inquiries. Mahalo to Richard for opening your beautiful home to us!"

  • Hale Mana

    "With all the beauty that Kauai has, I wasn't expecting the home to be the highlight of the trip, but it was. I'll never forget the sights, sounds and tranquility that this place has to offer. It made our vacation magical."
