About Gale Kramer

I have been coming to Kauai since the early 80's and always new that someday I would retire here. I purchased this beautiful ocean front lot in the late 80's and built this wonderful home in 1994. I am so happy to be able to share this fabulous experience with others. I love living on Kauai and I know you will enjoy your stay at Hale Hokuu Too

Gale Kramer purchased this house in 1994

Why Gale Kramer chose Kauai

Poipu Beach better known as Sunny Poipu offers great year round weather. We are 20' off the oceans edge with great sunsets to enjoy and a view of the small boat harbor and the blow hole. You can beat this location. Sandy beach just one min. walk away. Whale watching during the season while enjoying afternoon refreshments right your private lanai.

What makes this house unique

Within a one min. walk you can swim, snorkel or take a day boat ride not to mention a lazy day of doing nothing either pool side or at the beach. Whale watching, sunsets, turtles and lush gardens everywhere. Private and secluded.

Wonderfully Affordable Oceanfront Poipu Home

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Kauai many times, and have driven by all those wonderful,oceanfront homes hundreds of times, and for some reason I never looked into renting one of them. I continued to spend over $500/night for small, uncomfortable rooms at hotel resorts.

This last time, after stumbling across VRBO, I discovered Hale Hokuu Too. Lucky me!

The location was perfect. It is on Kukuiula Bay. Although I think I've gone to every beach on Kauai at least five times, I had never been to this bay before. Boy was I surprised. We pretty much had the beach (and bay) to ourselves everyday. Our 3-year old toddler loved the sandy beach and snorkeling with all the fish.

And after spending several hours at the large, sandy beach on the bay, we walked a few minutes back to Hale Hokuu Too and spent hours swimming in the pool.

After spending our days at the beach and the pool, we barbecued fresh fish on the propane BBQ while watching the sunset over the Spouting Horn.

This home and its location were so wonderful that we didn't even use our rental car and drive anywhere during the first week we were there. Poipu (Koloa) is so walker/jogger friendly that my wife and I (with stroller in tow) walked 5 to 10 miles each day (while we tried not to gain any weight from all of the gourmet meals we prepared on the BBQ and newly updated kitchen).

The home has lots of windows and sliding doors that we opened to let the island breezes flow through. During our time there, we never used any of the airconditioners that are in each bedroom. The house was always comfortable.

I wish I knew how to attach pictures to this review. While Gale was amazing and extremely responsive, the pictures she has on the website do not do justice for the extreme joy we experienced during our two weeks in her home.

I've vacationed in Hawaii 30 or 40 times, and none of my previous Hawaii vacations compare to staying in this home, walking next door to the "private" beach, swimming in the pool, lounging on the ocean front chairs while watching the sunset and then barbecuing dinner by the pool/ocean.

While you can spend more money for other oceanfront homes that have been recently remodeled, dollar-for-dollar (and location wise, regardless of the nightly rate), you can't go wrong with Hale Hokuu Too.

Stop shopping and contact Gale to book this property (unless you want to spend more money for an inferior property).

Wonderful vacation location

  • 5 of 5

Hale Hokuu was a wonderful vacation location! The views from every room are breathtaking! We enjoyed the sunrises over the small bay/marina and the sunsets over Spouting Horn. The kitchen was well equipped and didn't lack for any needed utensils. The large dining area was a regular spot to sit and enjoy our morning coffee while watching the dive boats gear up for their trips. We saw whales from the patio and enjoyed watching Spouting Horn from the pool. My elderly mother enjoyed the fact that the master bedroom was on the same level as the kitchen and dining room so she only had to go down stairs if she wanted to go out by the pool. The home was comfortable, well equipped and clean when we arrived. All the beds were comfortable and if you so desired there was satellite TV and internet access. Our only mistake was not staying here for our entire two week vacation. Instead we went to the Big Island and rented a newer, larger and very uncomfortable home in Kona. We missed Gale's comfortable home away from home! I also left behind some items and the cleaning person found them, contacted Gale and I paid to have them sent by Fed Ex. I greatly appreciated her honesty! We would return to Hale Hokuu in a heart beat!

Third Time As Charming As the First

  • 5 of 5

Our family just completed our third visit (for a total of 7 weeks) to Hale Hokuu and already have reserved for next year. We vacationed with our two adult children. Gale's house is the perfect place to share and appreciate time with our family. Well equipped from the kitchen to the beach equipment/toys. The house is in the most beautiful location with views(from every room) of Spouting Horn, sunrises, sunsets (you get both here), whales, dolphins, and turtles...you get the picture. The view is transcending. Quiet (except for an occasional rooster). Nice (new) outdoor furniture. The pool is lovely and was used daily. You are near so many points of interest (the gardens and Spouting Horn a short walk away) and very near a great shopping/gathering/restaurant location, The Shops of Kukui'ula. Gale is wonderful. She makes sure that all is going well for your vacation in paradise. She is very responsive, addressing any problem in the house. She also hires people that do a fantastic job. I cannot think of anyplace that I would rather stay.

Great Location and Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

Hale Hokuu is a great vacation home for families. We stayed there over Christmas with seven adults. The house is huge with plenty of room for everyone. Everything worked very well including all the kitchen appliances and barbecue. The pool was fantastic for cooling off on a warm day. Gale has plenty of amenities in the house including everything you need to spend a day at the beach including chairs, mats and umbrellas.

Probably the best feature is the location. From the balcony, we saw whales every day. We could watch the sun rise far to the left and had lots of fantastic sunsets over the Spouting Horn. The Horn is a five minute walk away. The swimming beach is just a minute away. We took a boat trip from Port Allen which is only 20 minutes away. Also, it's only 20 minutes from Lihue.

We would absolutely come back to Hale Hokuu in a heartbeat.

Fantastic Kauai Location!

  • 4 of 5

Hale Hokuu Too is perfectly located right on the ocean on Kauai's south shore. While there's no beach directly in front of the home (the coast is lava rocks) there's a nice swimming beach minutes away by foot and a very nice swimming pool. Lounging in the pool while gazing off at the beautiful ocean and coastline is a highlight. The stars at night are spectacular. The home is spacious, clean and well stocked. The famous Spouting Horn is about a three minute walk from the house and there are plenty of shops and restaurants a short drive away. It's a great location. There were 8 adults in our group and we all had plenty of space and privacy -- and plenty of common area to be together. The only drawback was the lack of AC in the kitchen and living area. Hawaii was in the middle of an unprecedented heat/humidity wave (without the typical trade winds) and it was pretty uncomfortable except in the air conditioned bedrooms. The lack of AC is probably not an issue 90% of the time -- just check the weather outlook for your planned vacation time. All in all we enjoyed Hale Hokuu very much and would definitely return.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home is absolutely perfect! Our family of six adults and one child had such a wonderful time in Kauai and a lot of it was due to Hale Hokuu Too! The home was very comfortable for the 7 of us and the view is breathtaking to wake to each morning. We spent a lot of time in the backyard and the pool and it will be a vacation that we will remember forever. Thank you Gale for sharing your home with us!
