About the property

3 bedrooms + queen sleeper sofa, 2 full Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 8

Imagine waking to the sounds of the breaking surf in the newest and most luxurious home in Kekaha. Welcome to “Hale Kahakai”, our brand new, custom built, West Kauai beach house! You’ll be amazed when you walk through the front doors and experience the incredible ocean view and all the unique features this home has to offer.

There are 4000 square feet of luxurious living space, an ocean side hot tub, original oil paintings, a recreation room, indoor and outdoor dining, a state of the art kitchen, soaring ceilings and of course, the best view of the longest white sand beach in the entire state of Hawaii. The sunsets are a show every night and in the winter months, you have a front row seat as you watch the whales play.

Even the fussiest chef would be proud to create an island feast in our incredible “gourmet” kitchen which features a beautiful hand hammered copper sink, solid soapstone counter tops, Jenn-Air stainless appliances and a flat top stove.

You’ll feel like Hawaiian royalty in the majestic, air conditioned master suite, with it’s king bed, huge walk-in closet, TV and DVD Player. The master bath is one of the most impressive rooms in the entire house with it’s beautiful walk in Travertine shower, gold vessel sinks, cherry cabinetry and a roman Jacuzzi tub for two. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have queen beds. All bedrooms have A/C, ceiling fans, TVs and DVD Players.

The main living area of this home was designed to bring that outdoor feeling inside. The glass pocket doors slide completely out of the way to open the 500 Sq. Ft. lanai to the rest of the house. Elegant tiled flooring, soaring ceilings, richly stained wood beams and a one of a kind coral rock wall give the grand room a majestic ambiance. Nestled in the rock wall, the room boasts an atmospheric fireplace and a 42” HD Plasma Widescreen TV with DVD Player. There is also a Sony Surround Sound home theater audio system, with an in-wall sub woofer and speakers wall mounted throughout the great room. To keep you connected, we also provide free, high speed, wireless internet access throughout the house.

To stay in top shape through your vacation, you can work out in our recreation room. We have a life fitness treadmill, body ball, workout mat, light weights and even workout DVDs. After a day of hiking, swimming, surfing or whatever adventure you have chosen, be sure to relax the evening away in our 6 person hot tub! The hot tub faces the sunset, so you can even soothe your muscles at the same time you’re enjoying the colorful close of another Kauai day!

From the very spacious lanai, you can watch whales, surfers, sunbathers, swimmers, body surfers, wind surfers and of course, the magnificent westward views to the island of Niihau, 18 miles off shore, out in front of you. At night, the sounds of the ocean’s waves will rock you to sleep.

Kekaha is located on the 'Sunny' west side of Kauai and is the western most town in the US. With an average annual rainfall of less than 20 inches, you are almost guaranteed a warm, sunny vacation, regardless of the time of year! Laid back Kekaha has no crowded beaches, no traffic, no tourist traps, no hotel resorts, just sun, surf and people who remember what the 'Spirit of Aloha' really means.

You are also just one block from the road that leads to the famous 'Waimea Canyon' and the 'Kalalau Lookout'. There are two major grocery stores less than three miles away and you are just minutes from the harbor where you can catch a sunset cruise along the NaPali coast.

Come and Experience for yourself the “No Ka Oi” (Best) in Kekaha!

* Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of using your Kauai home. We really enjoyed ourselves and especially loved the beautiful sunsets. We explored the island from Waimea Canyon to Princeville. The beaches are all gorgeous and it was so relaxing to lay on the sand and listen to the ocean. Again thank you for everything. If we decide to venture that far again, we will certainly contact you. Best of wishes and Mahalo.


* We had a great time in Kauai and your home was really first class. One week was really not enough time to see everything on the island so we will have to return sometime. Thanks!


* The house was beautiful and we had a great stay. So nice to be in a new clean house!


* We had a great week. The house was really great. The views, space and the layout were wonderful. The kitchen was well equipped and the showers had great pressure. It was nice to have the washer and dryer on site, and the stereo system was awesome. The surroundings and furniture were very comfortable. The outdoor shower was a nice thing to have as well. We had a wonderful time and it was a great trip.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for the use of your beautiful house. We are a family of 7, and it was perfect for us. We especially enjoyed the lanai. Such a treat as my husband sat there most of the time with the binoculars.

We enjoyed the NaPali tour, Waimea Canyon, and ATV Kipu. Ate at the Grove Cafe twice and loved the atmosphere. Loved the beaches at Polihale, Salt Pond, and Poipu.

Anniversary Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

Hale Kahakai was the perfect place to celebrate our 45th anniversary with family. You walked in and the ocean was right in front of you... our tone for the week was set! The house was stunning and very clean. We made it 'home' very fast. We spent all our time on the lanai, when there. The ability to walk across the road to spend beach time was fantastic!

Kekaha was so nice and low keyed. Everything we needed, was a very easy drive. Waimea canyon is just up the road, Polihale beach is an interesting road trip , but worth it!

Loved this place, it was all we hoped it would be.

Beautiful home - WE HAD A GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being in quiet Kekaha - so peaceful and away from other people. We explored the Waimea Canyon, hiking Honapu Ridge and the Alakai Swamp (both amazing). Polihale Beach in the morning is deserted. Poke from Ishihara in Waimea is great. We loved sitting on the lanai and watching humpback whales play and breach, watching the local kids play in the waves and then watching the sun set. The house itself is gorgeous- beautiful kitchen, fantastic open wall to the ocean, amazing wrap-around lanai, flowers all over in the garden, master bath is incredible. You will hear some traffic noise from the road in front of the house, but it fades early in the afternoon/evening. We simply loved this house and didn't want to come home!

Girls week

  • 5 of 5

This house is just as described. Very private with gorgeous views of the ocean. Spent hours on the lanai. Came for a girls week but would be great for families as well. Great beaches close by. Best weather on the island on the west side.

A very relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home has absolutely all the creature comforts required to make your stay very relaxing. Every morning was spent on the lanai enjoying the views of the ocean as we enjoyed our morning coffee to plan our day. The opportunity to watch the whales in the distance was amazing along with watching the boats as they sailed by. Yes, there is traffic as there is a road in front of the home and the traffic is busier at different times of the day but the views and the weather far outweigh this during the day. The beautifully manicured yard offers color and beauty. The doors to the lanai open across allowing the outside “in”.

We had three couples in the house and never once did we feel “crowded”. The house has “toys” to enjoy the water. The beach is right out front and easy to access. With all of the amenities in the home, one is not lacking. It was perfect to unpack and “move in”. You have your “creature comforts” with the added extras. The home is located in a very friendly town and the locals are more than willing to share their love of the island with us. The shared driveway and neighbors are great. Even though there are houses around this home, one still experiences the privacy and enjoyment of the home. There is also a binder in the home that gives one the information for the area along with information for the island. A guest book is there for all to write their experiences in and to obtain knowledge of the experiences of those that came before.

This home is also located with easy access to some of the most wonderful sights on the island so it was very handy and gave us plenty of time to enjoy our time there. Besides Chad Slayton of Hawaii Beach Home Rentals, we had access to the on-island property manager Sarah and she was fantastic and readily available as required too. These two people responded quickly to any questions we had making our first time home rental experience a great one.

kekaha property

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of five, three teens and 2 adults and we had the most incredible stay at this property. It is new and clean and gorgeous with a wrap around balcony with incredivble views of the ocean and surrounding flowers. We did not make use of the aircon as climate is constant day and night about 82-82 degrees. We slept with windows wide open. The house is on two levels had everything from fishing poles to boogie boards to outside hot tub. All appliances are new and first quality. We served dinner on the balcony watching the beatiful sun set. The property looks much better in reality than in the pictures. It was great for any kind of activities and would recommend hiking in the canyons and Polihale Beach close by too.
