The property is stunning. Pictures cannot even begin to do it justice. First, location. The pool/hot tub area is right on the seawall, which was great for listening to the waves crash against the shore while relaxing outside. There’s a beautiful white sandy beach just up the road that was perfect for morning runs and also nice sand in front of the property for walks along the surf. The quiet west side of the island also happens to be the dry side, so there were only brief passing showers when it was clearly raining more in the north. The west side was also close to all the activities we wanted (Waimea Canyon hike, Nā Pali Coast Holo Holo catamaran charter, helicopter tour that you really don’t want to miss). Restaurants for dinner are only a short drive away. Next, the house. We were blown away. Attention to detail is obvious everywhere; they spared no expense. With high-quality construction, ocean views from every room that mattered (all bedrooms, great room, kitchen, lanai, and library), and so many toys we couldn’t even begin to use them all, it was absolutely perfect. The kitchen has two ginormous Sub-Zero built-ins (identically sized refrigerator and freezer) and any kitchen gear imaginable including cool little built-in gadgets like the coffee maker and blender. Finally, the people. Michelle (the owner) was very responsive and accommodating, even offering things to make our stay more enjoyable so we wouldn’t have to ask. Gary (the property manager) was incredibly helpful with recommendations – monk seals are cute but don’t try to pet them, had the AC and lights on when we arrived after dark, kept the pool sparkling, and gave us so many mangoes every day that we could barely keep up (mango margaritas helped with that). Anyhow, the property is advertised as “Hawaiian Paradise Estate.” This is not overstated. The house is a 6000-sq. ft. mansion, the grounds are pristine, had we not wanted to see the rest of the island, we never would have left. Highly recommended.
We had an amazing ten days at this property. The location was fantastic, being on the beach was a big reason we chose this home. Gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. We could see whales from the yard and even had a monk seal sunnng himself in front of the place one afternoon! It is in a very quiet part of the island, away from the more populated areas. The pool is in great condition, very clean and well maintained. The home is beyond spacious. We took advantage of the laundry room - were able to pack less and wash up mid-week. The beds were extremely comfortable. Ocean views from every bedroom. SO much storage to use for your things. The kitchen was great- ice drawer in freezer so didn’t have to buy ice. Great appliances and adequate cookware. Secluded, gated home. Would absolutely stay here again
Practically perfect in every way
We loved this house and it was great for our family vacation. We enjoyed the beach, pool, and the beautiful home. In addition to the owner, the caretaker and housekeeper were especially helpful and made our trip easy. We very much appreciate their help in making lemonade out of lemons for us! Thank you!
Hi ,we very much enjoyed having you and your family hope to have you as a return guest in the future and that you had a wonderful birthday with many happy memories'
We'll never be able to go to Kauai again without staying here--it spoiled us rotten!
We brought our whole family--12 people ages 2 to 61--and rented this home and Michelle's other property next door (#328780) and had one of the best weeks of our lives! When we were home, we spent most of our time in the pool, on the beach, and in the barbecue room. The rest of the time, we explored the non-touristy west side of the island (including JoJo's Shave Ice--don't miss it!!!). Both of the homes were beautiful, well-equipped, and clean, and the landscaping made us feel like we were at our own private resort. Steve, the resident property manager, was so responsive and took care of everything we needed (and he's a really nice guy!), The only thing we didn't like about staying in these homes was leaving at the end of the week. Thanks, Michelle!
Michelle and Neil made our vacation wonderful. The house may be the best deal in all of Kawai. Everything worked worked the way it should and anybody would be Happy with this home.
Kekaha a Happy Surprise
We had not had an extended vacation (longer than a week) since our honeymoon 33 years ago so we decided to splurge and stay for a month. This home was a home away from home. At the end of our time there, I had to remember that I really did like our home in Texas and it was ok to leave (albeit, reluctantly).
We chose this home because it afforded us the flexibility we needed to have our family come in shifts. There is a beautiful lawn looking out onto the ocean, a beach and the ocean right through the gate, a well decorated guest house next door for overflow guests, and the house itself is roomy and magnificent. All 3 of the bedrooms have a wonderful view, so when we shifted from the master bedroom so our grand babies could sleep next to their parent in the adjacent study, we did not feel slighted in the least. The sounds of the ocean were mesmerizing. It seemed our every need was anticipated. Michelle, the owner patiently answered my many questions and has thoughtfully placed things throughout the home to make it feel just like a home and not merely a tourist crash pad. Neil, the caretaker is gem and a fount of information. He greeted all of our many family members with the same kindness and made us feel truly welcome.
We had never been to this part of the island before and heard that it was warmer than the rest of the island but all of us fell in love with Waimea. One of the reasons that we booked this house was because it has air conditioning, which we did need. But the heat was minimal and because of the dryness, we were able to spend more time out side enjoying the sun. Because the skies were clearer the night sky was spectacular. Neil suggested a 'star party' where telescopes were brought in and we were taught a slight astronomy lesson. That is still one of the things our kids talk about.
I could go on and on about the fresh poke and shave ice that we ate almost daily at the market in town and we have tried in vain to duplicate here or too many to mention wonderful things about the area, but it would take too long.
My mother was hesitant to make the trip to Hawaii and her response when we had to leave pretty much summed up what the rest of us felt. We wanted to go back even before we left the edge of Waimea.
Thank you, Michelle and Neil
We can't wait to go back.
