Paradise Found On Kauai - It's called Hale Hokuu Too!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Kauai for the past 19 years and have stayed in a number of residences along the south shore. Hale Hokuu Too is possibly the most complete rental property we have found. Gale wants her guests to have the best possible experience during their stay. She is attentive to all requests. The main floor living area is spacious with spectacular ocean views. The kitchen is well appointed with new appliances and almost every gadget and tool you could possibly imagine. The pool area is well maintained with plenty of lounges and pool accessories. Used the gas BBQ on a number of occasions. Cooking with an ocean view! So nice to have laundry facilities which are clean and neat. Wifi worked great as well. Used the main A/C unit once (for 20 minutes) in our 15 days because their is nice cross ventilation throughout the house. Weekly yard and pool service the grounds in impeccable order. Housekeeping service during our stay was a nice touch. Plenty of shopping within a 5 minute drive. Living Market is a great source for specialty purchases and Big Save let's you finish all grocery purchases. Long's Drug is a great resource. Try La Spezia in Koloa for great Italian cuisine. Merrimans and Roys 1849 let you splurge for a romantic evening. We've already booked for 2018 - 3 weeks this time because this feels like 'home' to us.

Unethical Owner, Place is old rundown, will ruin your vacay!

  • 1 of 5

Run from this listing or cancel your reservation if you can.

There were many red flags with this owner that I shouldn't have overlook but did. She was not flexible at all, made me pay with pay pal increasing the cost of the rental over $200 on paypal fees she agreed to refund $50 of it which she did not. Our security deposit was $1,050 she refunded $493 only claiming we spent more than $500 in electricity during a 3 day stay. Yes she charges additional per day per usage over $20. This house is a very dated, very old furnishings, needs a total facelift. There is no central AC most rooms are very hot during the afternoon and the 4th bedroom, is really a murphy bed, we couldn't use because there isn't AC.

There are notes all over the house warning if you use more electricity you will be charge, if you disconnect the internet you will be charge, if you unplug the appliances you will be charge, If you loose a key, you will be charge $300. Threatening notes "Don't eat in my couch"

The view is excellent the ocean is right outside the window but the bathrooms are old and we could only get hot water on the master bathroom so all 5 of us had to take turns showering. I never ate there for fear of staining her cheap wood counters. She left notes on not leaving glasses on counter. The dining room table had a cheap plastic table cloth. This is insane. She shouldn't be renting her home if she is this overprotective of her dated old cheap furnishings.

Upon leaving I cleaned that house in fear of loosing my deposit which I did. We felt so unwelcome and afraid to eat or seat on his totally dated cheaply furnished home. Is old and not worth the price we paid.

I am so traumatized by this experience I may never use home away again. We stayed at a 5 star resort in Maui cheaper and better than this place was.

Owner's Response: MY first reaction was to go on the attack and defend myself. I have decided to just list the facts about this horrible guest that wasn't worth the 3 night rental. July 3 at 9pm to July 6 at 10 am My payment policy is a check or to use pay pal which does have a fee involved which does not go to me but goes to them. I always say in my emails that if you want to avoid the pay pal fee please pay with a check. This guest decided to use pay pal fully aware of the fees involved. Their security deposit was $ 1000 plus the pay pal fee. The pay pal fee is not refundable. Pay pal takes their fee out when booked through them immediately. As far as my home being old and ugly, please read the 35 other reviews. Why would I receive so many 5 star ones. The fourth bedroom is described as the pool/garden family room with a queen size murphy bed that can be used as a 4th bedroom with a door for privacy if needed. Notes: We do have notes around the house as a convenience for my guests to make things easier and not more difficult. There are no notes about the electricity usage. The electricity usage is in your reservation letter which I ask all my guests to print out read and sign the first page and mail it with their check. This guest signed her reservation letter and emailed it back to me agreeing with all the terms and conditions. Kauai has the most expensive kw rate in the country and so we do have a weekly allowance that we offer which is more than enough for most people if not all. This couple used more electricity in 2.5 days that most people can use in a month. My housekeeper checks the electrical meter prior to check in and right after check out. They consumed over $500 worth. As stated in the reservation letter and signed and agreed upon, the over usage was deducted from their security deposit and the balance was sent to them within less than a week. I was at my home prior to these people checking in and all of the slip covers were spotless. Housekeeping after their check out had to remove all of them and take them to be cleaned. The house was not left clean as she has stated. We take a lot of pride in our upscale home and its decorations. Of course we do not purchase new furniture every year. My Kreiss Living room couch is 10' x 10' down wrapped and was very expensive. This women is not telling the truth and I feel sorry for anyone else who ends up with them as guests in their home.

Beautiful property - perspective from traveling w/little kids

  • 4 of 5

We came here with 3 couples and 2 toddlers (~1 1/2 years old). First, the location is excellent and the home is beautiful and comfortable. It was easy to walk to the small bay and Po'ipu beach is a very close drive. Gale was quite accessible and very ready to provide information. She's more involved than other hosts, so that was a different experience for us; we are more used to benign neglect.

I know this doesn't apply to many, but from the perspective of having a couple little kids roaming around - the bottom half of the house is pretty child-proofed and they have lots of pool/beach toys and even an umbrella stroller that came in handy for us. The main hazards were the stair cases (blocked on the bottom floor) and the outside/pool area. So if you're traveling with little ones, you'll have to keep a close eye.

The other thing that may not apply to most is that being 7 months pregnant, the lack of A/C in the common area upstairs was tough for me especially if I had to stay in the house waiting for a naptime to end in the late afternoon. The west facing windows have incredible views but they also get LOTS of sun so it warms up quickly. The bottom area is a bit cooler because it's less exposed.

All in all, I think this is a great property. But given our particulars - little kids, very pregnant, maybe not the best time for us to visit this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my home. We try our best to make every effort in making your experience as wonderful as possible. I am a little confused about your comment about no air conditioning in the public area upstairs..WE DO HAVE AIR CONDITIONING UPSTAIRS IN THE PUBLIC AREA which was installed 2 years ago. I do hope to have all of you again as guests at Hale Hokuu Too. Thank you, Gale

Even better than described...

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific vacation and what a beautiful location! The upstairs main room felt much bigger in person than the pictures reflect ( and it looks big in the pics) which was nice. All of the rooms were clean and well maintained upon our arrival. All beds were made with good linen and we had plenty of towels for the pool plus pool floats, noodles and boogie boards. We had no problems with anything either inside or outside the house. We made good use of the kitchen which was fully equipped for the 7 of us. The nearby beach really is just a few minutes walk away and so is Spouting Horn though you don't even need to walk there because you can see it from the pool.

I strongly recommend a stop at Living Foods Market located in the shopping center by Long's. Their food was amazing. My friends and I ate there several times.

Gale was attentive and responsive but not overly so in any way. I would not just recommend renting this home but would recommend renting any property from Gale. She was delightful. I certainly intend to book this home again and would not be surprised to be competing with my accompanying friends for future vacation dates.

Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

First, I would like to compliment Gale on being such an attentive host. She was in contact with us before, during and after our trip, making sure we had what we needed. It certainly instilled a confidence in our choice in properties.

Our trip was to celebrate a significant birthday and two anniversaries. What a perfect choice! You cannot truly appreciate how close to the ocean, beach and beauty of the area this home is until you are there. Gale has made sure her property is well maintained and clean. 3 couples each had their own bedroom and bath, as well as a perfect work spot in the downstairs family area just off the poolside.

Just minutes away are so many wonderful local retail shops and 2 great farmer's markets on Monday and Wednesday, that we found little need for a trip into Lihue. Most days were spent venturing out, but we looked forward to coming back to this restful, comfortable home. While we were in the neighborhood of some of the best island restaurants, we enjoyed cooking most evenings or having light fare at "home" after finding a great lunch spot.

Would we recommend Hale Hokuu Too? You bet we would! We have it as a HomeAway favorite and have already shared our find with many of our friends. While no place is perfect, you can't get much closer than Gale's beautiful paradise home. We are already talking about next time!
