PRIVATE 1 ACRE W/CHARMING HOMESTAY BY WATERFALL SLEEPS (2-4)

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Kapahi - ~Hale Mala Pua~

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible couch in living area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to our Charming 1 acre Property with cottage . If you love the country and privacy, Kapahi is for you, complete with down home hospitality.

We're minutes away from Gorgeous Beaches, quaint Kapaa town and sweet Mom and Pop boutiques of all kinds. We are half way between the North and South shores making trips easy. Your Sweet Private Cottage has all the makings of old Hawaii.

The entryway has been stamped with local ferns and palms. Around the corner is your private custom lanai, complete with hot outdoor shower, jetted tub, teak table and chairs, lounge chair and outdoor gas barbecue on beautiful farm raised ipe wood decking.

We do as the Hawaiian's do and leave our shoes in a little cubby outside by the door. It is a wonderful custom, both respectful of the home and helps to keep the outside where it belongs. Come relax, in your home away from home.

This lovely custom home has bamboo floors through out. The kitchen has bamboo, cabinetry, counters and a pantry filled with complementary items and all the gourmet needs for fine cooking. An antique table seats 4. A plantation style sofa bed makes for a comfortable living space along with a matching bamboo chair, ottoman, Flat screen TV & Board Games.

Your bedroom has a queen size bed, teak armoire, love seat, night stand, dresser and lovely local hawaiian art work.

Your bathroom shower has a river rock floor & imported green slate walls. The early morning sun bathes the slate in gorgeos warm colors.

For your pleasure and relaxation, a massage table is available.

Off the kitchen, you'll find a shared Energy Star front loading washer & dryer, using only natural suds that are provided for your use ~~

We have made every effort for our home to be ~~GREEN!!!~~ When building we used NO VOC paints & renewable bamboo flooring throughout. We used diatomaceous earth under the floor boards to help control pests. Only natural cleaning products are used to clean our home and these are available for your use. They include natural & scent free laundry soap, dishwashing liquid, organic cleaners, made on Kauai hand soap & natural toilet paper. Your table is set to use cloth napkins with bamboo placemats. Your bed linens are 100% organic as well as your bath towels. We provide these for your safety, as well as our planet. Our organic fruit trees and vegetable garden can be used during your stay when available. We recycle, compost and offer clean delicious filtered water from our Whole House Purfier.

This is a fragrance and smoke free home. Natural botanical's are fine. Please be sure to have your items completely free of these substances before your arrival.

You will love the many organic fruit trees including: coconut, avocado, sour sop, lime, papaya's, banana, surinam cherry, mango, orange, lemon,mt apple & noni, depending upon season. A hammock is available farther down the rolling lawn under 2 shady mango trees, where you can listen to the song of the river and waterfall, below the property. For the adventurous there is access to this beautiful secluded waterfall nestled between state land, where you can take the plunge into its remote pool. Numerous hiking trails nearby off our country roads that lead to more private pools & waterfalls.

*Please note* Living in the country, you may come into contact with mosquitoes and ants. We have a mosquito net and organic spray that work for most people.

Ants are attracted to food left out, sugar and water. We use a safe way to keep them away as best as we can*

We have adult and childrens bikes to explore nearby beaches and trails. Pack a picnic and you're off to see beautiful Kaua'i up close and personal !

Available for your use are Surf boards, Kayaks, Boogie Boards, Snorkel gear,Bikes,beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, Picnic supplies, badmitten, croquet and LOTS more. We also have a fire pit, which is great for relaxing by the warmth of the fire & listening to the cricket serenade!

Many spas are nearby. Indulge yourself in a facial, lomi lomi or salt scrub massage, acupuncture or a yoga class on the beach ! We are surrounded by some of the greatest healers in the world ! Many therapists will even make house calls!

We have two precious golden retrievers, 5 cats and a pet feral piggy . They all live happily outside. If you love dogs as we do, you are welcome to take them on a nearby hike. If you bring a stick or ball, you'll be friends for life!

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

TRULY AMAZING IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 out of 5
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!!!

STOP OVER THINKING AND BOOK IT!

  • 5 out of 5
I will have to try and hold back my true feelings for this place so people reading will not think that this a made up review. My wife and I got married in Kauai this past June and we stayed in this cottage for our entire trip. This cottage is pure Kauai. Fresh fruit, waterfalls, mountains, trees, flowers, and minutes from gorgeous beaches. The pictures really do not capture just how beautiful the cottage and property really are. Although the cottage itself is a dream, what really made our trip special was the owners. After calling to book the cottage, we found out that the owner is also a wedding planner. She made our wedding SO SPECIAL and STRESS FREE! Leading up to our trip, I cannot tell you how many times my wife cried happy tears after getting off the phone with the owner. I would ask her what's wrong and all my wife would say is "She's just too wonderful." Besides being the best wedding planner on the island, they are also a fantastic personal concierge. They know this island inside and out and they were always ready and willing to help us decide what to do each day. In regards to privacy, the walls are sound proof and they would even ask us permission if they needed to be outside near the cottage. It was very clear from the first day that they wanted us to be as comfortable as possible.

Long story short, my wife and I feel very blessed to have these people be apart of our lives. I honestly believe that if we stayed anywhere else that our Kauai trip would not have been so special. The property is gorgeous, the owners are amazing, and the price is very affordable. This will always be apart of our family, and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

MAGIC.

  • 5 out of 5
Ahhh...Hale Male Pua. We were there in March--me, my husband, and my 2.75 year-old son. We're still thinking about it a month later, just how much we were able to relax and be present with each other. What I can add to the many great reviews is the feeling of light sprinkles on the forearms dropping from a midnight blue sky as we floated ourselves into a meditative state in the outdoor tub; the light natural scent of local handmade soaps; sweet Kauai honey with notes of many nectars; candles ablaze; tiny shells tinkling on the windowsill in the bathroom as the evening breeze makes billows of the curtains. If this sounds dramatic, that's because the place inspires an emotional response. Holly and Rick have a bond with the island, and you will feel it; things here are in tune with the earth, the sky, with fire and water. The animals are loved. The land is loved. The people who visit are greeted with kindness and a sense of concern for their well-being as well as their desire for a little indulgence. It feels better than anything I've experienced in the category of "luxury." Hale Male Pua is the real deal. [It's dawn and I'm putting on my running shoes and heading out into the light mist to run up the road along the creek, spectacular views of waterfalls ahead. My husband and son are down at the back yard waterfall splashing in the pool. We meet at the hammock to pick oranges for squeezing and plan our day. There's much to see and do, but it's hard to leave...]

FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 out of 5
If I could I would move into this little gem tomorrow! It was such a wonderful home for our stay on the beautiful island of Kauai... My husband and I were so pleasantly surprised at all the little details our wonderful hostess Holly put into the home, like fresh fruit and flowers from the garden and candles all around. The home itself had all the amenities you could hope for. It was decorated beautifully as well. I especially loved the stone shower and outdoor tub. The shack full of outdoor goodies made it easy to explore the island with any gear we needed. The grounds were lovely, and the pets on the property seemed always somewhere around to say hello. :) I felt like they really thought of everything here. As I kept telling my husband when I would find something else lovely about this home, it's all the little things that really made a big difference! Many thanks to our gracious hosts, Holly and Rick, for providing us with much Aloha here!

COZY CABIN WITH AWESOME LANDLORDS

  • 5 out of 5
The Hale Mala Pua is an outstanding place to stay. You won`t be disappointed by the amenities and with the people leaving there.

We where greeted like if we were long time friends and they kept looking after us all week to make sure we were having a good time. Giving advice on where to go, what to go, where to eat, name it. You have so much more for your buck than staying in a condo/resort.

The place is loaded with high end features. Slate custom made shower, bamboo floor, bamboo counter, gas fired range, jetted outside tub, high end sink & faucet, ceiling fans, 1000$ mattress, coffee grinder, drawers in the bottom kitchen cabinet to slide the cooking tools out without effort and even chock absorber on the cabinet door hinges. (I`m shopping for those so I can add them in my kitchen right now!). Also outfitted with dimer on lighting and fans. You don't see these things in an hotel. The owner is a general contractor and it shows that he built the place like if he would live in it. Just like Jurassic Park, they didn`t spare the expenses.

Moreover, we had access to the mud room that has a gas fired dryer and front load wash machine. Here you go, you are covered. You can go every day to the beach with your pair of teenagers and dry those towels when it rain at night and pack light luggage because you can wash your clothes in the middle of the trip.

That was a complete stress relief therapy to stay with Holly and Rick and we got to understand what was Aloha about. We look forward to go back.

LOVELY ESCAPE FROM WINTER!

  • 4 out of 5
We certainly enjoyed our 3 week stay at Hale Mala Pua! We arrived late in the evening but Holly greeted us warmly and had the place filled with gorgeous flowers, fresh fruit, candles and lovely music - a very welcoming atmosphere after a long travel day. The place was very clean, nicely decorated and filled with little "extras" such as condiments and staples in the fridge and cupboards, lots of bath and beach towels and extra bedding for the few days we had overnight guests. We enjoyed the private lanai with a great outdoor shower and jet tub. The grounds are lovely, the surrounding rainforest is stunning and we certainly loved the walk down to the nearby waterfall. One thing that had attracted us to stay there was the Sportshack filled with snorkel gear, boogie boards, and everything you would need for the beach which was wonderful and for our exclusive use. Thanks Holly and Rick for sharing your gorgeous place with us!
