Was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Hale Okalani. We stayed for 5 nights in February 2014. They have everything you could need: beach towels, boogey boards, bikes/helmets, cooler, beach chairs, maps, guidebooks- not to mention a hair dryer, little bath things, bath towels, etc. The kitchen is stocked as well with a blender, pans/pots, toaster oven, microwave, etc. They have plenty of plates and cups and wine glasses There is a little general store across the street that stocks ice and anything you could forget, and about 10 minutes to the south is a Foodland grocery store where you can stock up on your food. And the closest gas station we could find was about 15 minutes away.

The location is perfect. The owner's backyard is the beach, and the beach has a great reef with tons of fish and sea turtles galore, perfect for snorkeling and exploring. And during whale watching months, it's perfect! We saw more whales than we could count just from the beach. They are about a 4 minute drive from Hapuna Beach, and about 10-15 min drive from the Waikoloa resorts. We did excursions up past Hawi and Waipio Valley, and it really didn't feel like we were driving forever. Helps it's all so pretty. It was a pretty perfect central location.

The room itself is nice as well, the bed was comfortable and there was a/c for the warm nights. It was quiet. From the main bedroom window, you see the ocean. There is a bbq on the porch, but we never got around to sitting out there, we always went down to the beach. The owners are friendly, but you do barely see them. True, the wifi isn't great, but that wasn't a big deal for us and the shower could be improved a bit, but it wasn't a drawback at all. We'd definitely stay here again!

Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5
A lovely one bedroom chalet - perfect for 2 people. The furnature and decorations were tasteful and high quality. Everything was clean/immaculate and in working order. The kitchen was well stocked with nice equipment and dishes. We ate in and barbequed on the grill out on the deck several nites and the kitchen was more than adequate for that use and for breakfasts. The deck and deck furnature are well made and comfortable. Is a perfect location with easy access to beaches and Waimea and Kawaihae. The owners live in an adjacant home and are pleasant, unobtrusive and respect your privacy, There are ample beach chairs/mats/towels etc available in the unit for your use. The only item which was a minor disappointment was the wifi, which was slow/weak; for example, was too slow to stream a radio station. Overall was an outstanding experience - we would stay there again witout hesitation.
