Until next time....' Tucson, AZ. 'Today is good-bye from island time back to real time. Visiting the island four or five times yearly-this was my first time staying on the west shore, but it won't be the last time. We spent a few afternoons at the Salt Pond area. Miles of sight seeing. It was so nice to return 'home' each evening to the ***** cottage! This wonderful vacation rental should be featured on HGTV!!! Mahalo from all of us. Springfield, MO Keywords: House

    We absolutely loved our stay at Hale Makai. It was a very private location and we felt as if we were at home. The owner's had meticulously left notes on how to operate the shower, lights and A/V equipment, which made the entire stay easy, comfortable and familiar. We loved how close we were to the Kokee state park and Waimea Canyon as well as the Polihale state park. We liked being away from the tourist folks down at Poipu, but still went down to enjoy the beach and snorkeling there. Our favorite place for Poke was just 5 miles away in Waimea as well as a great burrito place. The Hale Makai is beautifully maintained and and features exceptional accommodations! 21 October 2013 - 19:15:54

    Upon arrival we found this property to be as advertised. The interior was immaculate and nicely furnished. It offered all the ammenities and then some, needed for a vacation stay. The yard was very private and comfortable with lush tropical landscaping. Should we ever return to Kauai we would definately seek this property out again. If I had one suggestion to make it would be for the installation of a couple "grab bars" appropriately placed in each of the bathrooms/showers for those not quite as nimble on our feet as we once were. And finally, should they ever be needed, the unobtrusive caretakers Dave, Rose and "Bob" live in the next house over. To them - Mahalo. 07 January 2014 - 20:18:59

    May not have had beachfront, but we would definitely stay here again. Peaceful, secluded, relaxing. Sitting on the lanai enjoying a beer after a day of hiking, snorkeling and sightseeing was awesome. It was a romantic week for us, but this would be ideal location for a family or if traveling with another couple. Very clean and well furnished. 11 January 2014 - 20:06:01

    This is by far one of the best VRBO properties we have ever rented. It has everything a vacationer would want or need and is beautifully decorated. We loved it! 09 February 2014 - 13:52:23

    We just returned from a great week on our favorite Hawaiian island, made even more special by our stay in this lovely home. Everything is exactly as stated in the information provided. Two couples can easily live comfortably together as there is plenty of room. Our favorite feature was the hot tub, especially star gazing at night from the warm tub to soothe tired muscles. The showers were huge and had plenty of hot water. We did use the kitchen facilities quite a bit and found everything we needed, and more! The beach across the street is private, great for sunsets and just down the street is a beautiful yellow sand beach that is not crowded. Every beach item you could possibly need has been thoughtfully provided. As VRBO owners ourselves (Grand Haven, MI, VRBO #363675), we very much appreciated how well appointed this place is and how helpful Dave and Rose were. Thanks again for allowing us to stay in this wonderful home! 26 February 2014 - 18:06:57

    My stay was very nice. We loved the hot tub and roomy cottage. The home was well stocked with everything! Ocean was close by but we couldn't see the ocean. 17 March 2014 - 05:37:18

    This is the best vacation home we have ever stayed in! It's everything described and MORE! The home is charming and comfortable and perfectly decorated. It is also quiet and peaceful. We went almost every evening to watch the sunset and be sure to watch out for chickens in the tall grass, hubby was chastised for 20 minutes by a frightened chicken. I was thoroughly amused. The hot tub was a welcome activity after dinner and the stars were outstanding. Thank you Gina. Thanks also to Dave and Bob ( the big ol dog) We will be back! 27 March 2014 - 06:43:44

    Great property, quiet area away from town a bit. I enjoyed my stay and was made to feel right at home 29 May 2014 - 15:36:39

    This is a great place to get away from it all and relax, but sufficientry convenient to the best beaches and outdoor activities to keep you as busy as you want to be. The owners live in a home in front of the rental, and it was very evident the they take great pride and care of this property. We would definitely rent it again. 20 July 2017 - 00:02:00

    If you want peace and quiet and close proximity to one of Hawaii's best beaches check out this location. Worth every penny and more. We are definitely coming back! 25 June 2017 - 22:41:00

    This house was perfect. It had everything we needed. Perfect hot tub in the backyard after a long day of hiking. We would soak in the tub and stare at the incredible stars at night. It was very peaceful and would definitely stay here again. Less than 5 minutes from Waimea Canyon. 26 April 2017 - 15:21:00

    We loved our stay at Hale Makai. We did not want to go home. The house is great, it has everything you need. The hot tub is icing on the cake. Private location was just what we wanted. Love the slower pace of this part of the island. Will definitely go back. 09 April 2017 - 02:03:00

    This is a beautiful, well-maintained, and conveniently located property-- I would recommend it to any travelers looking to stay on Kauai away from the busier resort towns. The space was much larger than needed for our party of two friends, but we enjoyed the luxury of our own rooms and en suite bathrooms. We got a lot of use out of the laundry facilities, great beach chairs/umbrellas/towels, and wide array of kitchen and picnic equipment, but most appreciated the lovely little yard and beautiful star views from among the tropical foliage. For a winter stay (December-Jan), the location was ideal for access to good swimming beaches. We enjoyed the beach parks in Kekaha, Waimea, and Poipu, as well as the lovely, low-key stretch directly across from the property. I would absolutely return to Hale Makai, and recommend it highly as a very comfortable and well-equipped base from which to enjoy Kauai. 13 January 2017 - 14:08:00

    Perfectly comfortable home. Everything necessary was there, even for trips to the beach. Nice quiet part of the island. Hope to return someday soon. 27 March 2015 - 23:00:50

    We stayed for a week and enjoyed the more local feel of Kauai's west side. The house is beautiful and immaculately maintained. We had everything that we needed to make it our home away from home. I certainly would stay again. Dave the owner lives nearby and was very easy to work with and responsive to our needs. 30 August 2015 - 04:47:42

    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! 27 July 2016 - 20:53:00

    Hot tub was great to look at the stars. Away from touristy areas. All the cooking utensils, laundry, grill, beach chairs. Soo good 27 November 2017 - 00:13:00
  18. We had a great time at Hale Makai. It had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of activity. The location is very convenient with close proximetry to beautiful beaches and just a five minute drive to Waimea for groceries, shops, restaurants, etc. Highly recommended! 24 December 2017 - 01:21:00

    We shared this home with another couple. Well kept home with wonderful appliances including laundry. Hot tub was great at night. Close to beach and "downtown" although not walkable to town at night due to lack of sidewalks. Great jumping point to everything you want to do. Can't wait to go back, I'd definitely rent again. 06 January 2018 - 17:10:00
  20. Everything you need to cook, BBQ fresh fish and eat on the enclosed lanai. Hotub is surrounded by palms and has an EXCELLENT view of endless stars. Owners are kind and made sure we had everything we needed. 14 January 2018 - 19:26:00
