  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • We had a memeorable vacation, thanks to the beautiful house that we stayed in.

    "I can only say that we would go back and stay at this property again tomorrow if we could. The house was well maintained and had every comfort that we could need. A close proximity to the beaches, which were excellent for swimming, body boarding, surfing and snorkeling. There were so many fish. Many thanks to the owners of this property for making it available. 08/01/2016"
