  • 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."

  • Anniversary Celebration!

    "Hale Kahakai was the perfect place to celebrate our 45th anniversary with family. You walked in and the ocean was right in front of you... our tone for the week was set! The house was stunning and very clean. We made it 'home' very fast. We spent all our time on the lanai, when there. The ability to walk across the road to spend beach time was fantastic! Kekaha was so nice and low keyed. Everything we needed, was a very easy drive. Waimea canyon is just up the road, Polihale beach is an interesting road trip , but worth it! Loved this place, it was all we hoped it would be."

  • College roommate reunion

    "The perfect place for 3 college buddies to reunite with their families. Spacious, secluded, quiet, in a stunning spot on the beach, this is a prime example of a plantation estate. The owners went our of their way to make sure our time there was special, and it was. All of us, children and grandchildren included, had a spectacular week from the early morning coffee on the porch inhaling the tropical fragrance and watching the surfers, to swimming and walking on the beach, to spectacular sunsets in the evening followed by magical views of the milky way. Tucked in at night we drifted off to sleep at night listening to the waves in the distance after a perfect day. If you are looking for unpretentious elegance and beauty this is the place to make lasting memories."
