'Today is good-bye from island time back to real time. Visiting the island four or five times yearly-this was my first time staying on the west shore, but it won't be the last time. We spent a few afternoons at the Salt Pond area. Miles of sight seeing. It was so nice to return 'home' each evening to the ***** cottage! This wonderful vacation rental should be featured on HGTV!!!

We loved our stay at Hale Makai. We did not want to go home. The house is great, it has everything you need. The hot tub is icing on the cake. Private location was just what we wanted. Love the slower pace of this part of the island. Will definitely go back.

Fantastic house!

Enjoyed the privacy of the home, the hot tub, the private black sand beach and how close it was to some of our favorite areas.

Well-appointed and charming

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well-maintained, and conveniently located property-- I would recommend it to any travelers looking to stay on Kauai away from the busier resort towns.

The space was much larger than needed for our party of two friends, but we enjoyed the luxury of our own rooms and en suite bathrooms. We got a lot of use out of the laundry facilities, great beach chairs/umbrellas/towels, and wide array of kitchen and picnic equipment, but most appreciated the lovely little yard and beautiful star views from among the tropical foliage.

For a winter stay (December-Jan), the location was ideal for access to good swimming beaches. We enjoyed the beach parks in Kekaha, Waimea, and Poipu, as well as the lovely, low-key stretch directly across from the property.

I would absolutely return to Hale Makai, and recommend it highly as a very comfortable and well-equipped base from which to enjoy Kauai.

10th anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying at Hale Makai on the west side of the island. We stayed here for over 2 weeks! My parents came and stayed for a week as well. Everything in the house was immaculate and updated, both furnishing and appliances. The place was perfect for two couples. We loved how close we were to the Waimea Canyon, and went up to go hiking at least half a dozen times during our stay. We also were a quick drive to Kekaha and Polihale Beaches. We loved soaking in the hot tub after a day of hiking. The yard is very private, and although there were other houses near us, we couldn't tell because of the greenery planted around the house. I would definitely stay here again!

Nice place to stay on the west side

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and enjoyed the more local feel of Kauai's west side. The house is beautiful and immaculately maintained. We had everything that we needed to make it our home away from home. I certainly would stay again. Dave the owner lives nearby and was very easy to work with and responsive to our needs.
