Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Kekaha - Laguna Hale

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

If you're someone who appreciates the exceptional, you'll have no need to look any further, now that you have found this incredible ocean front beach house. It truly is the ultimate ocean front getaway.

Hale Laguna underwent a nine month long, total renovation by new owners, for the 2012 Season.

Everything is new.....from landscaping and paint, to furniture and linens...and NOTHING BUT THE BEST! The linens are 500 ct. cotton, with thick plush bath towels to match. Nothing was left to the imagination. This is one of the premier vacation rentals available on the SUNNY west side of Kauai, within minutes of the famous Waimea Canyon and miles of white sand beaches.

Nowhere else on the island do you have the opportunity to view sunsets over the ocean, with wintering hump back whales breaching in the distance. The west side of Kauai is the least traveled and the least populated. However, savvy travelers are discovering the natural beauty of this side of the island.

Everything imaginable awaits you in Hale Laguna. Wide and spacious double lanais face the ocean and offer a comfortable spot to read a book, watch the sunset, and dine al fresco by the sea. Inside, the bedrooms offer air conditioning and a well-stocked kitchen to make food preparation as easy as the island lifestyle. The open and flexible floor plan offers families and couples traveling together an opportunity to spread out with plenty of private areas to get away from everyone else if you desire some quiet. No one will feel slighted with his or her bedroom and all them have King beds, or a conversion to twins if desired. Both bathrooms have luxurious walk-in showers featuring river rock, tile, and glass. There is a living room on each floor, and a kitchenettes (in addition to the main kitchen) so that each group can have their own floor with identical ocean side lanais.

On the upper main floor you'll find the master suite with a king-size bed and spectacular river rock shower which features dual shower heads. Sliding doors open to your covered, oceanside lanai. This is the perfect spot for watching the unforgettable displays of color each night as the sun sets over the ocean and in the winter months, it's your front row seat for watching the humpback whales that make Hawaii their winter home.

Enjoy unobstructed views of the ocean while cooking in the fully stocked kitchen which features beautiful granite counter tops. The dining area seats 6 with additional seating at the kitchen bar. If you prefer to show off your grilling skills, the gas barbecue on the adjoining living area lanai, is also placed where you can watch the sunset as you fix a great meal. Both levels of the outside lanais also offer tables and seating so you can enjoy ocean front dining without even leaving home!

The upstairs living area has a 46' flat screen LCD TV, and DVD player. There is another flat screen 46 'LCD TV on the first level living area, as well as TVs in each of the master bedrooms. Only BEDROOMS HAVE AIR CONDITIONING. We also have, high speed wireless internet, and FREE UNLIMITED long distance phone calling to anywhere in the US and Canada, so you will easily be able to stay connected throughout your stay.

There are two additional bedrooms on the first floor. A second master bedroom with a king size bed which walks out to the lower ocean side, and a full ocean view. The last bedroom has twin beds that can be made into a third king upon request. The downstairs also features an additional full bath, a combined living/dining room area, a lanai dining table with seating for 4, and plenty of room for lounging. The unique design of this house allows groups traveling together to still have their own separate living and sleeping areas, offering much more privacy than most vacation homes.

Come and discover Kauai's best kept secret...Sunny, laid back Kekaha, which is the western most town in the US and has an average annual rainfall of less than 20 inches. Regardless of the time of year your travels bring you to Kauai, you are almost guaranteed a warm, sunny vacation here on the west side. Why risk your vacation going to parts of the island where rainfall exceeds 100 inches, and it is not uncommon to have it rain for a week at a time? We have uncrowded beaches, no traffic, no tourist traps, no hotel resorts, just sun and surf in a friendly, small town community.

Come experience the west side of Kauai, with luxurious accommodations to come “home” to. You will come to know and appreciate what experienced travelers to Hawaii have found out about this secret part of the island, and you won’t want to share it with anybody else!

We couldn't have found a better place to spend time with our family. Your home is perfect! Mahalo for sharing without an outrageous high cost for 7 days. Your home is clean, with a great location, and high end quality furnishings. We have never thought that we could experience this wonderful accommodation.

Kauai is a beautiful place to bring family to share memories.

Kehaha is where it's at!

  • 5 of 5

Laguna Beach house is perfectly situated on the sunny side of the island, with amazing sunsets. With 3 kids, having the Kehaha Beach Park directly across the street is terrific, its excellent beach space to build sand castles, boogie board, soak up the sun... We especially enjoy having space to ourselves without a touristy crowd. Shopping is nearby, Waimea Canyon and Poipu are just minutes away. Kitchen is fully stocked and the house has everything you could need. We are very pleased with this rental choice.

Two times a charm!

  • 5 of 5

This would be the second time we have rented 'Laguna Beach House' and will be back again for more! Our family of 5 settled in like it was home once again and easily got into the rhythm of the west sunny side. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean, having our breakfast overlooking the waves and mapping out our hike for the day, we couldn't ask for a better start to ones morning. The unusual rainy weather which was consistent for the 2 weeks on the North Shore made us appreciate the fact we were staying on the sunny side and grateful to return to Laguna Beach House each afternoon for cheese & wine on the beach across the street or sometimes we would have our dinner on the beach and watch the sunset. This beautiful home offers a peaceful home base to adventure out from and a lovely local community to give you the real Aloha spirit. If you're looking for hustle and bustle, fast food, shops and tourists this is not your spot but you can certainly drive to that from your paradise above the ocean on the sunny side.

Lovely home with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time renting a vacation home and we were not disappointed. Beautiful and comfortable home. We loved the area which the home sits on the west side so late afternoons were spent on the upper deck watching the sunset. A three mile drive took us to a sweet little town with two markets for groceries and several eateries. Don't hesitate on renting this home for your vacation as you will not be disappointed!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect place for our family of 3 couples to stay while on Kauai. The layout is perfect and the home is beautifully appointed. We enjoyed the various adventures during the day - boating , surfing, hiking and the must-do helicopter tour of the island and then looked forward to the stunning sunsets on the decks in the evening.

Yes, there is road noise, but the view and location make that easy to overcome and it certainly did not keep us indoors! In fact, during our week in March, had we stayed anywhere else on the island, we would have had clouds and rain all week!

We will definitely stay at this home on our return to Kauai.

Disappointing - and here's why.

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in the Laguna Beach House for 4 weeks, expecting it to be (as claimed) ...."truly the ultimate oceanfront beach house". Unfortunately, this can only be "true" if you completely ignore the one thing that spoils it all; THE ROAD. The road that runs past the front of the house is very BUSY and very NOISY.

Photos on the listing show the road is there and before I booked I considered the implications. Without doing any real research I reasoned that, since Kekaha is the last town on the road (Hwy 50), traffic would be light. And, after all, few other reviewers even mention the road as a problem.

What I did not know is:

- all the traffic to and from Kauai's principal (only?) landfill site passes by

- because Polihale State Park and Kekaha Beach are west of the house there is a high volume of heavy-duty pickup trucks, many of them fitted with suspension lifts and off-road tires

- much of the traffic for Waimea Canyon passes by on its way to and from Hwy 552.

The noise from this traffic is completely incompatible with oceanfront relaxation and we found the spacious and excellently furnished lanais to be practically useless. And the on-shore winds - needed to ventilate and cool the house - carry the road-noise right into the house. Even with doors and windows shut, the sound of traffic is a more or less constant irritant.

There were times during our stay when we felt forced to "go somewhere", just to get away from the noise.

People reading this review need to know that in all other respects the listing is correct; this is a very nice, well-equipped house. But, for the reasons given, we would not recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you did not take being on a road into more consideration. By your own admission, you did not investigate the implications to your satisfaction. However, most guests are satisfied to make the trade off of being on the only part of the island where you can watch a sunset over the ocean, right from your lanai. The road is along the ocean in all of Kekaha. I live next door, and despite it being a 35 mph. two lane road, have never waited for more than 15 seconds to cross the road to the beach. To have a beautiful, clean, white sandy beach is very special on Kauai. The quality of the furnishings, the overall design of the house, and the air conditioned bedrooms, bring total satisfaction to most of our guests. It is unfortunate that you focused solely on the road, and that you did not realize that you would be in a location with some road noise. I am sorry that you did not have a better stay. I would suggest that if you are not satisfied with your accommodations on a future trip, you should contact the owner/manager to see if there are any options available at another place, that might be more to your liking.

Beautiful home on the West side of Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home from Scott after weeks and weeks of searching through VRBO postings for the perfect house for a 2 families of 3 for a week long vacation. We communicated often with Scott leading up to the visit. Scott was quick in responding and thorough in providing us information about the area and answering all of my questions.

Upon arrival, the home was spotless, current with appliances, furnishings, décor, etc... the layout is unique in there are 2 master bedrooms, one downstairs, one upstairs. Both very comfortable for the 2 sets of parents in our group. The 3rd room worked out really well for our 2 teens, giving each one of them their own bed and space to spread out over our week-long vacation.

The views from the lanai are amazing! Nothing but ocean as far as you can see. I read other reviews regarding the road that runs alongside the front of the house... yes, there's a busy road but it doesn't distract from the views of the ocean or the experience of sitting out on the lanai for morning coffee or evening cocktail. It's a busy road.

The 3 bedrooms have individual air conditioning units. There is not air conditioning for the rest of the living space, so afternoons are hot inside, even with the windows open and fans on. We had one issue with the downstairs master bedroom air conditioning unit not blowing cool air when on. Scott responded to my complaint immediately and had a repair service out on Monday morning to address and fix the unit. The 2 master bedroom units were pretty noisy though. We all had to sleep with ear plugs in to block out the noise of the units. I'd prefer to be cool than worry about noise, so just mentioning this in case others are light sleepers and crave cool air while sleeping... bring ear plugs.

The yard around the home is lovely. There's chickens and roosters everywhere, along with beautiful plumeria trees and other tropical flowers. We didn't get bug bites at the house so I'm guessing the chickens help keep control of the Hawaiian mosquitoes.

We cooked often at the house and the kitchen is well equipped to accommodate. There are a few small markets in town, but they're really expensive. Scott recommended we stop on our way in at Costco, which we did. Note that Scott keeps really fresh condiments and spices loaded in the fridge and cupboards so you don't need to buy fillers. All in all we loved the house and had an amazing vacation. I'd rent this exact home again next time we visit Kauai
