  • Kekaha a Happy Surprise

    "We had not had an extended vacation (longer than a week) since our honeymoon 33 years ago so we decided to splurge and stay for a month. This home was a home away from home. At the end of our time there, I had to remember that I really did like our home in Texas and it was ok to leave (albeit, reluctantly). We chose this home because it afforded us the flexibility we needed to have our family come in shifts. There is a beautiful lawn looking out onto the ocean, a beach and the ocean right through the gate, a well decorated guest house next door for overflow guests, and the house itself is roomy and magnificent. All 3 of the bedrooms have a wonderful view, so when we shifted from the master bedroom so our grand babies could sleep next to their parent in the adjacent study, we did not feel slighted in the least. The sounds of the ocean were mesmerizing. It seemed our every need was anticipated. Michelle, the owner patiently answered my many questions and has thoughtfully placed things throughout the home to make it feel just like a home and not merely a tourist crash pad. Neil, the caretaker is gem and a fount of information. He greeted all of our many family members with the same kindness and made us feel truly welcome. We had never been to this part of the island before and heard that it was warmer than the rest of the island but all of us fell in love with Waimea. One of the reasons that we booked this house was because it has air conditioning, which we did need. But the heat was minimal and because of the dryness, we were able to spend more time out side enjoying the sun. Because the skies were clearer the night sky was spectacular. Neil suggested a 'star party' where telescopes were brought in and we were taught a slight astronomy lesson. That is still one of the things our kids talk about. I could go on and on about the fresh poke and shave ice that we ate almost daily at the market in town and we have tried in vain to duplicate here or too many to mention wonderful things about the area, but it would take too long. My mother was hesitant to make the trip to Hawaii and her response when we had to leave pretty much summed up what the rest of us felt. We wanted to go back even before we left the edge of Waimea. Thank you, Michelle and Neil We can't wait to go back."

  • Peaceful vacation

    "I absolutely love the Laguna Beach Home! It was like having my own private beach! The sunset views were amazing! There is a road in front of the house but I never noticed it much! I slept with the doors open! I could hear the ocean and feel the breeze. I highly recommend staying here! The manager is awesome to work with! Thank you Scott!"

  • 10th anniversary trip

    "My husband and I loved staying at Hale Makai on the west side of the island. We stayed here for over 2 weeks! My parents came and stayed for a week as well. Everything in the house was immaculate and updated, both furnishing and appliances. The place was perfect for two couples. We loved how close we were to the Waimea Canyon, and went up to go hiking at least half a dozen times during our stay. We also were a quick drive to Kekaha and Polihale Beaches. We loved soaking in the hot tub after a day of hiking. The yard is very private, and although there were other houses near us, we couldn't tell because of the greenery planted around the house. I would definitely stay here again!"

  • Sunny everyday!!

    "This beach house and location were perfect for our family. My husband and I and our four grown children(17-24) had non-stop fun. The beach across the street felt like our private beach. The house had a closet full of beach supplies so we were equipped with boogie boards, umbrellas, coolers, etc. We spent every free minute out there playing in the water, watching the stars and relaxing in the sun. The house was also very well equipped for cooking and grilling at home. Each of the bedrooms have air conditioning which made for a very restful sleep. Waimea Canyon is basically in your backyard and full of great hikes with amazing vistas. Our favorite was Waipo'o Falls, because you can swim in the water to cool off. Polihale Beach is so close and also deserted. Highly recommend Bubbles Below scuba outfit for underwater adventures. The owner Linda is extremely knowledgable and her staff excellent. They leave from Port Allen which is only a 15 minute drive from Kekaha. We did a local dive and a day at Ni'ihau. We dove with monk seals, sharks, turtles, etc. Some of the best diving we have done. Also recommend the sea kayaking trip down the Na Pali Coast. It is a full day event and very challenging physically, but well worth it. We did do some hikes on the North side of the island. They also were spectacular but all of us were shocked how much more crowded the north side of the island was. The traffic and crowds were a bit of a culture shock. After any adventure to Hanalei area, we were always so happy to return to our sunny, private beach with no parking issues. We loved this house and location and would definitely stay here again."
