Recent Kekaha reviews

  • Lovely, well maintained getaway

    "Rented this based on the reviews and we were not disappointed! It's a clean, lovely retreat, well-stocked home and we loved the outdoor shower as well as stargazing off the porch at night. Bedrooms are big and there is plenty of room throughout. It is hot in August of course, but with the fans and the breeze, the house cools down finally quickly and it was pleasant. It does mean that cooking in the kitchen is not that desirable, as it generates extra heat in the house. Only detractor was that a couple of nights the neighbors (residents) had very loud TV programs on, but so it goes...overall, we would definitely recommend this rental. This was our first time to Kauai and Kekaha so a couple of things may be useful if you're considering this location. Kekaha has easy, wonderful access to Waimea Canyon so this is a great location if you plan spend multiple days hiking. The beach across the street is a terrific place to watch a sunset; however the surf is rough and there is absolutely no shade and it is mostly rocky. So it's not for swimming and it's not the type of beach where you just sit and read. It's right on the road and there is no shade cover. You can drive about 20 min to Salt Pond Beach for a swimming beach which is great for kids."

  • Kehaha is where it's at!

    "Laguna Beach house is perfectly situated on the sunny side of the island, with amazing sunsets. With 3 kids, having the Kehaha Beach Park directly across the street is terrific, its excellent beach space to build sand castles, boogie board, soak up the sun... We especially enjoy having space to ourselves without a touristy crowd. Shopping is nearby, Waimea Canyon and Poipu are just minutes away. Kitchen is fully stocked and the house has everything you could need. We are very pleased with this rental choice."

  • Perfect experience all the way around, and only one problem ....

    "The problem? You need to make sure you book excursions and outings well in advance of your arrival or you will NEVER LEAVE THIS HOUSE. It's comfortable, spacious, well furnished, thoroughly updated ... you feel like you're in Kauai back in the 30's when sugar was king, but still have all the amenities of the 21st century. When you book a year in advance there's a lot of time to worry about details. But by the time our family and an aunt arrived all the worries fell away one by one: * Isn't it a long way away from Lihue and the north shore attractions? Yes, but the island is small enough that we could make several excursions to the north and east sides and come back with plenty of time for swimming and reading at the house. * No A/C? Yes, but the front doors open to the ocean breeze and every room and lanai has one or two huge Hunter fans. It was breezy and cool every day and I had to use a blanket at night. On the day of our arrival it was humid and still, but very day afterwards we had perfect sea breezes. * Right by a highway? Yes, but with the surf running all day and night you hardly notice. You're also pretty close to the end of the road, so traffic is limited enough that we never waited more than 5 seconds before crossing over to the beach. * Can you even see the sun set into the ocean with Niihau in the way? Nope, not in July ... but the colors are so incredible and the surf so harmonious it doesn't matter. We thought about driving around to Polihale for a better view, but every night's sunset from the upper veranda or down on the rocks was perfect. * Doesn't it rain a lot in Kauai? Yes -- 450 inches a year on Mt Waialeale just a few miles away. But down in Kekaha we barely had two small showers in 11 days, and perfect weather all other times. In short, everything I worried about came to nothing. The kids had a blast naming all the geckos (Two-Tail Timmy was a favorite), my 70+ year old Aunt had no problem navigating the broad stairs and getting in our out of the pool. There was room for all of us to be together, claim a quiet hammock, or do "coffee and guitar" on a veranda. Highly recommend Sunrise Helicopter tour, Na Pali coast our with Capt Andy, a kayak/hike up the Wailea river to Secret Falls, & Koloa Zipline was an awesome experience. All made better by the fact we'd be coming back to this gracious house when done. We looked at a lot of Kauai houses: so glad we picked this one."

  • 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."
