  • Perfect Getaway

    "This condo was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Perfect view of the ocean and so close to shops and restaurants, that you could easily walk! Great bike rental right next door and right in the middle of the island, so going north or south was easy. The resort was kept up really well and had all sorts of fun things to do on sight. Well kept pool and hot tub. The condo had extra beach chairs, sunbathing mats, umbrellas and beach towels and all of our interactions with Dawn were wonderful! Thank you so much for such a wonderful place! We WILL be back again!"

  • Beautiful and spacious neighborhood home--Great deck and views

    "We stayed at Lyle's place for two weeks in January 2016. The house was nicer even than represented in the VRBO pics and description. The owner, Lyle, was very responsive but completely unobtrusive, and we enjoyed privacy the whole trip and really felt like we were in a home--not a rental. Very spacious layout and large living space with wrap-around windows. We all especially loved the the deck which wraps around from front around to the back with stairs leading into the back yard. Our little ones (5 yrs and 2yrs) really enjoyed the front and back lawn areas, as well as exploring the new tropical plants within the landscape (Fruiting bananas, ginger, coconut tree--and my 5 yr old especially loved the "sensitive plant" which moves in response to touch). The home itself is perfect as a home away from home, complete with stocked kitchen (I enjoyed the blenders for all the fresh fruit we got from the farmers markets), very nice linens (a touch that my wife and mother-in-law really appreciated), nice private bedrooms with plenty of space. Two bathrooms were great to have (even a bonus third one downstairs in the garage if you have more people staying). We were three adults and two small children, and we had tons of room to spare--this house would easily accommodate a bigger family and more sleepers (I think that the couches pull out in the living room and the master bedroom has a large sleeping chair that we used a few nights for the 2 year old to pass out on). The bedrooms are on the quietest side of the house, which was great to muffle the only noise issue; the next door neighbors have 5 or 6 bulldogs which choose late night to not only bark, but also snarl in a really strange and primal way (this might be an issue if you have people sleeping in the living room). The house is an easy 5 minute drive (about 3 miles) from the ocean; close to Po'ipu beach--great kid beach, and good shopping in the more touristy Kukui ula shopping center [Longs Drugs, upscale retail shops, and fancy restaurants--we tried Merriman's one night, which was a very nice date night and delicious meal]. Close by still is the more rustic Koloa town with fun shopping and a more local feel. The only drawback to the house location is that as close as it is by car to everything, we couldn't really throw the kid in a stroller and walk anywhere from the house. All in all--We loved the house and felt completely at home here--we will definitely be repeat renters. Thanks Lyle!"

  • Our winter home

    "We have been privileged to experience two extended winter vacations at Hale O Ani and are returning again in 2017. That is probably, in and of itself, testimony to how wonderful this property is. But to restate the highlights and some additional insights I would like to share the following, much of which is supported by other reviewers of this outstanding property. First is "quality". Everything, in Hale O Ani is of the highest quality. The dishes, glassware, appliances, bedding, furniture, hardwood floors. The owners Faye and Bob are delightful, fun and responsive to needs and wants and willing to share their insights into interesting side trips. I could go on, but want to mention a few things that have proved important to us; particularly the surrounding area. When you leave Route 50 and drive up the road to the property it feels like entering Jurassic Park! The vegetation is so lush and stunning that in some places it is breathtaking. This sets the stage for a feeling of wonder and tranquility. When approaching the house from the driveway we’ve encountered Sharma Thrush singing their sweet and unusual song along with all sorts of other interesting birds. We have been fortunate enough to pick bananas off the trees in the driveway and stay long enough to eat them! The view of the palm tree from one of the bedrooms is like a live painting and the bougainvillea cascading over the hot tub in full bloom is outstanding. As a matter of fact it is the last picture I took before we left at the end of March. All in all Hale O’ Ani is a fabulous retreat, getaway, hideaway, or whatever one chooses to call it. All we know is that it is soothing to us, both inside the property and outside where it is positioned up in the hills far enough away from the hustle (but not too far) to feel like a sanctuary. We are grateful to be able to leave Upstate NY for most of the winter and now call Hale O’Ani, our winter home. Not visitors, not tourists. We come home in the winter…."

  • Perfect for our spring break with two families who shared CR1.

    "This place was awesome! And affordable, which we completely appreciate since most things on the island are pretty expensive. I read somewhere that the owners try to keep it affordable so that families can enjoy their Kauai visit and I agree, so thank you!! The house had more than everything we needed. A few days were chilly and we kept busy with a hike and then just hanging out at the house playing basketball, ping pong and other games that were there. We so much appreciated the beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, boogie boards, toys, etc. It really makes a difference, and now that I know all of that is there, I'd go back again. House was clean, it is older, but it really doesn't matter since it is clean and has everything that you would need. Having a pool was a huge hit. The big sliding doors opening to the beautiful yard and pool is really nice. The kids found lizards in the backyard. The house is close to the road and you can hear the cars but each room has a big fan and we would just run that at night and couldn't hear a thing. Thank you so much Gary and crew for everything. We had an absolutely wonderful holiday and will be back again!"
