Excerpts from a thank you card received,
Dear Holly & Rick,
I wanted to thank you so much for your hospitality. Your home and property are amazing. We had such a wonderful time. Should we find ourselves fortunate enough to visit again, we will definitely want to stay with you. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fruit and all the equipment in the sports shack! We were able to experience so many beautiful places while we were there. After all we had been through before our arrival, it was such a blessing to find time to heal in such an amazing place. May God bless and keep you well. The world would be a better place with more wonderful people like you. In love, D & M
My wife and I stayed at Hale Mala Pua for our honeymoon. It is SO absolutely gorgeous! As much as I rant and rave about this homestay it won't do any justice until you have stayed here! Hale Mala Pua was absolutely wonderful and romantic! My wife especially loved the jetted jacuzzi tub with all the bubbles! It was a perfect place to come home too after a day of going on adventures around Kaua'i! Hale Mala Pua was very clean and very private. The only time we saw Holly and Rick is when we actually sought them out to ask a question. My wife and I actually wish we could have seen Rick and Holly more as they are such lovely people! Truly, our lives are richer now knowing Holly and Rick and all the animals! We wish we could have stayed one more night just to take Rick up on his offer to have a bonfire and chat more! Rick and Holly have so much knowledge about the island and so much love for each of their guests! This love, kindness and respect shows itself throughout your stay and will definitely make an impact on you when you leave, leaving you feeling more enriched and blessed for having these amazing people in your life!
Hale Mala Pua was in an amazing location as well. We were only 10 minutes tops to the closest beach and the sports shack was such an amazing thing to have. I cannot tell you how much we saved not having to rent outdoor equipment for our activities! Such a huge bonus for anyone hoping to experience Kauai to the fullest!!!! The grounds are absolutely beautiful as well! It is so much more lush now, than the photos I am seeing while typing this review! SO BEAUTIFUL! Having the garden's was absolutely amazing too! I think we made orange juice every other day! SO GOOD! We could write pages and pages about how excellent our stay was at Hale Mala Pua! If you are considering vacationing in Kauai (for whatever reason) your search for a place to stay has ended! Don't hesitate and call Holly and Rick! You will not be disappointed in Hale Mala Pua!
Holly and Rick, we cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful honeymoon! We will recommend Hale Mala Pua to anyone and everyone who wants to vacation in Kauai. We will definitely be coming back (hopefully in the near future). We have felt like we have made lifelong friends and we cannot wait until we can see you and the animals again.
Much love and blessings to you all!!!
We spent half of our recent trip to Kauai at Hale Mala Pua and it was absolutely perfect. The cottage is cozy and warm, tastefully decorated, well-stocked, and everything was very clean (and chemical-free). The sport shack had everything we needed and we enjoyed biking along the ocean and kayaking the Kalihiwai river. Holly and Rick were awesome about showing us how to get the racks on the car too. After a long day exploring and enjoying the beach, the cottage was wonderful to come home. We enjoyed the jetted pool and outdoor/indoor showers, relaxing on our private lanai with feline visitors, and falling into that bed each night was just amazing. The bed and bedding are so soft and the air flow in the cottage was perfect. I slept so well!
Be sure to bring bug spray and ear plugs as the mosquitos and roosters are certainly plentiful. (The well stocked cottage included itch relief remedies and white noise to help with these minor annoyances though.)
I'd highly recommend Hale Mala Pua to anyone visiting Kauai! Holly and Rick are gracious hosts and along with their pets made us feel right at home. Anyone looking to explore and enjoy various activities will enjoy everything the sport shack has to offer too.
Hale Mala Pua--what a lovely place to call home for our three week stay on Kauai! It is in a rural setting, quiet and peaceful (except for the ubiquitous Kauai chickens!!). The cottage itself is delightful--beautiful decor, comfortable furniture (the bed was wonderful and we slept so well!), well-equipped kitchen, lovely shower. We loved the outdoor hot tub and used it every night we were there, including the night Hurricane Ana brushed by the islands--lovely soaking in the warm water with a gentle rain falling! The outdoor shower is fabulous also, especially useful after a day at the beach. We made extensive use of the barbeque. The sports shack is very well equipped with just about anything you need for that day at the beach--everything from snorkeling equipment to chairs, coolers, bikes, you name it-they've got it. There are a variety of fruit trees on the property and oh what lovely fruit including fabulous avocado and citrus. We enjoyed also their sweet, friendly cats and dogs and of course, Lucy the pig!
Holly and Rick are a delight--as others have said, they really do care about the comfort of their guests and it shows! Thanks, Holly and Rick, for creating such a lovely paradise for us!
This was a perfect setting for our 6 year anniversary! Private, romantic, and very Hawaii. The way the cottage is cared for, and the way Holly greets you and makes you feel, it's like you are coming home to visit Mom for the holidays (in a good way) ;-). It could not have been nicer.
P.S. We loved swimming in the private waterfall/pool! Heaven on Earth!
My husband and I stayed at the cottage for nine days in August. We had the best time! The cottage is so comfortable and private. Holly and Rick were available whenever we needed them for questions or help with loading up the kayak that they have in the sport shack. Holly had fruit and macadamia nut cookies in a cute little basket prepared for us when we arrived and the most beautiful flowers in the cottage for us. She also provided candles for romantic dinners. My husband wanted to go, go, go the entire trip and Holly was also nice enough to leave the outdoor lights on for us when we'd roll in late some evenings after being out swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and hiking since early in the morning. There are some ants here and there, but nothing we couldn't handle. There are mosquitoes outdoors, but I used a citrus type spray that was under the bathroom sink and it seemed to work for me and I tend to draw mosquitoes like crazy. My husband's favorite thing was the outdoor shower. I absolutely loved the geckos that come out at night. The outdoor hot tub is also so relaxing and enjoyable, especially late at night under the stars. We also slept with the windows behind the bed open every night so we could smell the pure air and hear the soft rain fall in the mornings. My husband has been unhappy since returning home and says he wants to return and smell the fresh air. I totally agree with him and we both can't wait to visit once again. Thank you Holly and Rick for making the little cottage so special. It was so perfect for us and we truly had an enjoyable and romantic vacation, which my husband and I were both in dire need of before another busy year of kids, school, and work. Mahalo! D&M
The cottage is nice and well-furnished.
A washer and drier is available for use, which came in handy for an extended trip.
The sports shack has lots of great equipment available for use.
Holly and Rick are both extremely nice and will do their best to help you out.
The bed was quite comfortable.
There is an outdoor shower and tub.
There are tons of mosquitoes around the property and we got bit just about every time we stepped outside. Eventually some mosquitoes got inside, too. We were itching for pretty much the whole stay and a little worried about spending any time outside. This was definitely a bummer because it limited our use of some of the outdoor "pros" of this property.
Even though we washed all the dishes and kept the cottage clean, there were still a decent amount of ants inside.
Although harmless, a gecko fell on me while eating inside the cottage.
It was a tough decision to only give this place 3 stars. The property is great. Holly is an extremely nice woman who does everything she can to improve the experience of her guests. However, having 10+ mosquito bites from the first night alone made enjoying the stay quite difficult. So if you normally attract mosquitoes or are afraid of insects, it would probably be best not to stay here. However, if you don't mind insects too much, this property has a lot of awesome amenities and will be a great spot to stay at.
