The Garden Hale is something to be experienced. The views, the weather, the proximity to amazing beaches and Waimea make it an ideal location on the island. The property itself is really, really nice. There are several outbuildings on the property that are also used for vacation rentals, but it's very private and the owners Matt and Rose are very helpful and responsive. We were lucky enough to spend 5 weeks on the island using various rentals in different parts of the island. The Garden Hale was by far the nicest in terms of cleanliness, decor, artistry and craftsmanship. There are various gardens around the property that are beautiful with flowers and fruits and veggies, and then there are the chickens that supplied us with fresh eggs. The size of the Garden Hale was good for the 3 of us- myself and my husband and our 3 yr old son. It was nice to have space for him to walk around on the property and we all took daily walks in the rural, quiet neighborhood where you could see nice sunsets. We were supposed to stay 7 days and ended up staying for 14 days, we loved it so much! Cannot recommend it highly enough. The only downside was the lanai was not as usable as we would have liked because of the sun and the heat and no shade. It was nice in the evenings for a BBQ on the brand new grill. They even had beach toys for my son! To make the visit complete, my husband had a cranial sacral massage/treatment from Rose for his cluster headaches. These are severe headaches that come on daily for months. His headaches were gone one day after his session with Rose. Amazing. Thanks for the great stay! We hope to return!
