We stayed at Hale Makai recently for almost two weeks. The house was perfect for us. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could ask for! It even had a rice cooker! It was missing a salad spinner , but that was the only thing we couldn't find . There was plenty of dishes, coolers, ice packs, beach towels, beach chairs ,an iPhone docking system , band aids and even the macadamia nuts and cracker! It was very quiet there. A little far from the south where all the action is, especially thru the snail traffic in Kappu. The attention to problems was immediate. We had a little problem with the BBQ and it was fixed before we could even get back from the beach! The only draw back was the weather. It was unseasonably cold, however no fault of Hale Makai! The neighbors dog was the best! She would come over for a treat every evening and wait patiently for one of us to get up and get her one! Made it so much like home!
