Why Bill Morgan chose Kauai

I have been returning to Kauai since first living here in 1975. Hale Pulelehu'a is located on the best beach on the entire island of Kauai. We designed Hale Pulelehu'a to appeal to our multi-generational family. The house is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the North Shore and is close to so many great activities. There are so many spectacular things to do within walking distance of the house that you may not even want to get in your car!

Well equipped home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults spent a week at "The Butterfly House" and "The Treehouse".

The close proximity to the beach and several North Shore sights was outstanding.

The property included everything anyone would need for a most memorable vacation.

Beautiful Stay, lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay here in this lovely home. We got married on the beach right across from the house, so sweet...with the waves crashing in the background. The guest house was nice for us both to have that extra bit of quiet. The house itself is spacious and has a large kitchen, great for cooking which we did a lot of...the owner also provides plenty of beach kit, so snorkeling gear and boogie boards etc. It's an idyllic location, peaceful, quiet and you don't really want to go anywhere.....we will be back!!!

Great house for a family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight adults and two kids stayed at this house for a week. It exceeded our expectations. Each bedroom was super comfortable. The kitchen was so big and well stocked. We cooked dinner every night and even had a private chef come one night. The house was so clean and seemed very new and up to date. It was a 1 minute walk to the beach. Unfortunately the waves at the beach were too big for our group, because it was winter, so we usually drove to hanalei bay for beach time. The house is well stocked with ice chests, boogie boards, beach towels and many other beach accessories! Bill, the owner, was extremely accommodating and available to answer any questions we had. Without a doubt we would stay here again!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had an enjoyable stay and hope to return in the future. During winter swells on the North Shore swimming can be difficult and unsafe. There are many times during the winter where the surf is small enough to swim at the beach in front of Hale Pulelehu'a. Hanalei Bay is a great alternative for swimming during high swell times. Another enjoyable option is a ten minute beach walk to Tunnels for the relative calm of the lagoon. Bill

The place was Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

This was my third stay here. This home is very clean, open, spacious, and well maintained. This place hits all the marks. It is as close to the beach without being on the beach. It has privacy. It has a nice breeze. I love the outside showers. The kitchen has a large area for cooking and preparing along with a long counter with bar chairs. The whole house has a great aloha feeling. You can hear the waves. We took the bikes(provided) to ride to the end of the road each morning. Walked to the beach for a swim. Great place to unwind and get refocused. It is a very low key area. I go to Hawaii often and I feel this home and location is one of the best. I highly recommend. Hopefully it does not get too hard to reserve. Thanks!

Better than expected in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed over Thanksgiving for 9 days. In person the house is better than the pictures indicate. It's more spacious and well appointed with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable: beach towels and toys, kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking equipment, nice covered parking, and the guest house (tree house) was close but private. It really is 50 steps to the beach, and the beach was amazing and virtually private. A short 10 minute walk down the beach leads to tunnels beach, which is great snorkeling. The amazing views of the coast are had from all around! It's a short 5 minute drive to Hanalei--this quaint village on a beautiful sandy beach perfect for surfing, kayaking, and beach going. The owners were amazing to work with and communicated well throughout the process. We'll be back!

Amazing Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a large group. They do not lie when they say "steps from the beach". I love this part of the North Shore. It's real quiet and chill and only a couple miles away from the Napali Coast trail head. The house is very well stocked for anything needed for a beach day. I was very impressed with the guest house in the back which is equipped with its own outdoor shower. I honestly couldn't ask for anything more and Bill the owner was so easy to work with. This house is highly recommended.
