Spectacular location and views; huge yard

  • 5 of 5

The location and views from this property are absolutely stunning and photos do not do it justice. Surreal views of "Bali Hai" as it rises up just over a mile from the property. Relatively easy access directly to Tunnels Beach (through a small, slightly sloping wooded area off the side of the property). The yard is very large (over 2 acres) so it is an excellent space for yard games or lounging. The home itself is very charming and a bit on the rustic side (basic bathroom finishes, "cabin-like" feel with the lightly stained wood paneled walls and ceilings). The kitchen is large with newer appliances, plenty of cooking gear/dining wear, a good selection of basic seasoning/spices; and there is ample dining and living room space surrounding it. The large ocean-facing lanai has an outdoor dining table with space for 8 and those amazing mountain and ocean views as mentioned above. There is no A/C but ceiling fans, plenty of windows and patio doors allow the trade breezes to flow through and keep the interior comfortable. It's a split floorplan with two bedrooms sharing a bathroom on each wing. On each side, one bedroom fronts the water with a king bed while the other faces the rear of the property with two twin beds. All living space is elevated so you do need to climb about 1 1/2 flights of stairs to get up to the lanai and access the home (keep this in mind with older/less mobile guests).

Make sure you stock up on what you need in advance as it's a nearly 90-minute drive from Lihue (where the best concentration of grocery stores and Costco are located). Hanalei town (about a 20 min drive) is relatively close and does have a smaller "Big Save" grocery store and other merchants for other things you'll need during your stay. Keep in mind that the BBQ grill on the property is real charcoal - not gas; so you'll need to stock up on charcoal if you plan to do a lot of grilling. About a 2-minute drive down the highway is the Mediterranean Gourmet which is a very lovely nearby dining option. I didn't try the food but the Mai Tai's were great. There are bicycles in the garage, a ping-pong table, tons of beach gear and beach chairs.

We had four total guests but this house could easily accommodate two families of four (parents in the two master bedrooms, kids in the rear bedrooms). Great space and truly set up to be "home away from home"!

The view. It almost doesn't seem real! My family was in awe of beauty that surrounded us during our stay at Makua Ma Ke Kai. The home is very clean and stocked with everything you need, from kitchen supplies, beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, etc. We enjoyed every minute of our stay -- Willi is so easy to deal with and responds immediately to email correspondence. Nothing but wonderful things to say about this house!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing and secluded rental property, and is perfect for two families traveling together. There are two master rooms and two other rooms with each having two twin beds, separated by the kitchen and living area. Unbelievable view and just a hop, skip, and jump from Tunnels Beach. Snorkeling gear, ping pong table, BBQ, outside shower, are just a few of the perks. Willi, the owner, is great and will get right back to you. Highly recommend!
