Wonderful Vacation at Hale Lokahi!!!!!
We all THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay at Hale Lokahi !!!!! Thank you to Chad and management for making the experience very easy to book and very easy to enjoy!
I think the pix on the website are very thorough in describing the place - when you walk in from the garage, the beach view is EXCEPTIONAL! - everyone gasped - and I felt so happy that what I'd chosen for the family received that response. This was to be our picture window for a whole week! What the site doesn't describe are the full pantries and additional amenities (unexpected snorkel gear, bug spray, sun screen, e.g.). We used from the larder and replenished - seems like that's what the guests do. It was much appreciated! It was truly our own house, comfortable and accommodating.
My husband and I (in the master bedroom) sometimes had trouble sleeping because the waves were so POUNDING. That was perhaps the only drawback, getting a good night's sleep, but what could we expect, right ON the beach? Several other people who'd written in the house journal loved the ocean waves that lulled them to sleep. May depend on the time of year for the noise level? (we were there in late June 2013) Also, we've learned that rooster crowing is something you just can't get away from on the island, no matter where you are. Good thing we could relax and nap, if needed.
We all appreciated the clean, well-kept house, maps and books about Kauai and welcome basket. Clear instructions and directions, able to reach a manager if needed, very well organized!
Our adventures included Birds in Paradise motorized hang gliding above Kauai; Kipu Ranch ATV adventure (off road vehicles you drive yourself in the back country, leading to the site where they filmed Indiana Jones and waterfalls, includes lunch, VERY fun!), spectacular Waimea Canyon, snorkeling, of course sightseeing, JoJo's Shave Ice, Ishihara Market, and one day when we all just stayed home the whole day and played games and ate snacks, enjoying the lanai!
Staying at this house was a huge part of our fabulous week. We'd love to return and do business with you any time! We highly recommend this house!
Note about the beachfront: this is not a beach you can swim in, you have to drive to access snorkel beaches. There is muddy runoff from a nearby river so the water isn't always blue blue blue, but you can walk to a local pier and back and you're surrounded by blue water everywhere else, right? Also, the neighborhood is VERY low key, laid back, rustic, dusty. RELAX!
