We descended upon Hanalei with 6 adults and.toddler for a birthday celebration. This home was perfect, well appointed, clean and a great place to host the festivities. The services offered by Ocean Front Realty were excellent. This house was a perfect choice for us with an excellent location. Hanalei is a delightful location and we’re definitely coming back!

Just as Advertised
This house looks just like its pictures. We stayed with 5 adults and 2 children. Because of our group's composition, 2 adults and 2 children ended up in the room with double beds but there were some cushions in the closet that we made into extra beds on the floor. The house and landscaping were clean and well maintained. We had one minor issue with a screen and the property manager responded quickly. Everything else was in working condition.
It is a short walk to the beach and into town. There are no sidewalks, however, so that is just something to be aware of. The house sat on a portion of Weke Road that does not get as much traffic and yard was excellent for kids to play in.
We were also pleased to find boogie boards, beach chairs, and umbrellas for our use. I would highly recommend that the property managers consider adding extra beach towels, towels for showers, and hand towels in the kitchen. There was about one beach towel and bathing towel per person and while I don't mind doing laundry, it seems like an easy upgrade that would be really helpful to guests (especially with kids who are in and out of the water all day and seem to always have a wet towel!). They also need to add some wine glasses. There were just four during our stay and that is an easy fix as well.
The house had many puzzles and games and travel guides. We made use of all and had a very lovely stay. The outdoor shower was great and we also used the barbecue which was a great help with cooking. The porch was very nice and we enjoyed sitting outside and reading. Overall, the house was just what we expected and it worked very well for our group. Thanks for having us.
Aloha Tina, and mahalo nui loa for your review! We're glad you enjoyed staying at our home and that it met all your expectations. We're also glad you were satisfied with how we addressed the problem with the screen. We were not made aware of the missing wine glasses during your stay, but they have been replaced. We hope you'll stay with us again. We offer a 10% discount to repeat guests, and we'd love another opportunity to share our aloha!

This was the perfect vacation rental for me, my husband, and 4 friends! The house was even better than advertised. Everything was clean, the kitchen was well-equipped, the beds were comfortable, and the beach access was super close.
The house is located between the two closest public beach access points to Hanalei Bay, each just a short walk. We visited several beaches on the island and decided Hanalei Bay was our favorite! We were pleasantly surprised to find a ton of beach gear (towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, kayak, snorkels) already at the house, which saved us money on rentals.
We loved eating meals together on the lanai! You can listen to the ocean while you have coffee and admire the gorgeous landscaping. Big Save grocery store and other local shops are just a short walk or drive away.
We loved this house!

Just to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale Makal in Kauai.
The house was great, very well equipped, clean and in a great location.
Would definitely rent again if visiting Kauai.
Amazing and beautiful
This house was amazing and beautiful! It was our first time going to Kauai and we loved Hanalei Bay. The house is only a short 5 minute walk to the public beach access and it's a perfect location. You are also a half mile away from the downtown area that has shopping and restaraunts to enjoy. Everything you need you can find there. You can walk or drive and the street can get busy and there's no sidewalk so be careful. On this trip we had 7 adults no children. The house was advertised as sleeping 8. But that's only true if you put two people in each double bed so for us that was a disappointment and the couch is not a pullout so one of us slept on the couch in the living room which can be hard for that one individual since they had to be the last one to go to bed and the first one up. There were a few things we noticed about the house and one was the lock was very difficult to lock and unlock. We had to have someone come out and repair it the next day. Second there is no AC so make sure you are ok with this. Thirdly, the toilet in the bathroom that connects to the bedroom with the king size bed runs constantly. But overall it was very nice, comfortable and close to what we wanted. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice and a good size. The kitchen and deck had to be my favorite things though...the yard is beautifically landscaped and manicured and it's so peaceful sitting outside. We did get eaten up a bit by the mosquitos so get some bug spray or citronella candle for sure! We would return to stay here again and would recommend family and friends. Also the agency was a pleasure to work with and made it so easy and were very responsive to all of our questions.
Aloha Jackie, and mahalo for your comments! We’re very glad you enjoyed your stay at Hale Makala with its proximity to beautiful Hanalei Bay and town. I’m very sorry that one of your party had to sleep on the couch, but I hope they were comfortable. We indicate the bedding in the house and I apologize if the arrangements weren’t clear. We’re glad that you were satisfied with the responsiveness of our services. We fixed the sticky lock while you were here and the owner has ordered a new toilet. Most homes on Kauai don’t have air conditioning, relying on the usually mild climate and trade winds for comfort. Since we’re in the tropics it’s certainly a good idea to bring insect repellent. We offer a 10% discount to repeat guests, so please let us know when you are ready to return to our beautiful island. We’d love to have you visit again!
