  • 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."

  • 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 family vacation on Kauai

    "We just arrived home from staying in this lovely rental for two weeks with our daughter, son-in-law, and two young grandsons. The location was absolutely perfect for attending our family reunion held nearby, and for enjoying the July 4th celebration with fireworks in the park. The hands down favorite feature of the house is the second floor lanai. Waking up to the sound of waves, enjoying coffee and meals at the large table, waving to the passing boats and watching sunsets were our favorite activities. Second favorite feature are the spacious and fabulous bathrooms. Street noise from cars driving by wasn't an issue for us after the second day. With a million dollar view, who even notices the cars? The location is very close to Port Allen for dinner and snorkeling cruises, Salt Pond Park, and it's a quick 3 miles to Waimea for JoJo's Shave Ice, Ishihara's, Big Save, and more. We highly recommend trying Lappert's ice cream a few miles away in Hanapepe where all the art galleries are located. Having a washer and dryer was great and enabled us to pack lighter. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed when we decided to eat in. Tip: there's a small local market across the parking lot from the post office on Kekaha Road that has the best poke on the island. We met several neighbors who were super friendly. There are a few minor maintenance issues that need attention and the beds could do with new pillows, but overall this is a fantastic vacation rental."

  • 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."
