  • 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!"

  • Fantastic stay!

    "This is our second trip to Kauai and our first time staying at this house. The location is perfect, less than a 5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants in Hanalei. The house is well maintained, clean and stocked with everything you will need. The bedrooms have their own a/c unit. We made good use of the beach supplies at the house. The lanai was nice and relaxing at meal time. Joanne was fantastic to deal with. We can't wait to go back!"

  • serene and comfortable

    "We stayed in this property in October. We really needed to get away from it all and this property delivered. House was clean, quiet, and comfortable. We appreciate all the extra touches the owners provided, beach chairs and umbrella, cooler, wifi for staying in touch with reality when necessary, BBQ with spare gas tank, comfortable bed and pillows, games, books, the list goes on. Just pack your swimsuit, sunscreen, and slippers, you will be set for a quiet restorative getaway. The beautiful natural beach is about a 5 minute walk, just around the corner, so if you've stocked up on groceries, there is no need to drive again until you leave for the airport...perfect!"

  • About as perfect as you can get!

    "My wife and I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon. We've both done a fair bit of traveling and can easily count this property as one of the very best we've seen. From the beautiful grounds, to the spectacular views, Mia Huna was the highlight of our 2 weeks in Kaui and Maui. The main house, pool house, pool and grounds are absolutely stunning. We also really enjoyed staying at this part of the island: from dramatic cliffs, to the backdrop of lush mountains, to the easy access to restaurants and hiking - it really is perfect. Lauren, the owner, was also a pleasure to deal with as well. She was quick to answer any questions we had and really helped to make this vacation extra special."
