"It was a pleasure staying at Hale Kekaha for Christmas and New Years. We were spoiled being there for over 2 weeks.
Everything you need is provided to make for a comfortable stay, and for outings to the beach. We were pleasantly surprised to find large beach umbrellas, mats, chairs, coolers, and a variety of water equipment available. (Note that the washer and dryer are not in the unit, but in the common area where the beach equipment is stored.)
Kekaha is the last town on the west side, so the location is ideal when it comes to peace and quiet. Also, having driven all around the island, we noticed that there were rainy days in the south, east and north of the island, whereas we only experienced rain for half an hour one day. Westside is Bestside!
We didn't use the air conditioner at all, and had the windows open at night to keep the perfect temperature for us. There is traffic noise occasionally (and crowing roosters in the area), so if you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs.
For the days that we didn't go sightseeing, it was very nice to stay at the house, and walk across the road to the beach. We were almost always the only ones there, and it was almost too good to be true. We have been to Maui three times, so crowded beaches are what we were used to. We definitely prefer Kauai now, specifically Kekaha.
The beach is so long, that you can walk along it west/north for miles. Early evening walks to watch the sunset were part of our routine. We did time it so that we would be back at the house shortly after the sun went down. (The nights are very dark.) There is an outdoor shower/hose/footwash station, so you can easily rinse sand off.
If you enjoy beaches, sunshine, and a quiet place to stay, we highly recommend Hale Kekaha. Scott makes the whole booking/reservation process very simple and easy. We know we will be back!"
