There was 6 in our group (originally suppose to be 8). We had the most marvelous time. The house was beautiful and such a stocked kitchen with everything you could ever think of needing. It was so clean and Justin was only a phone call away if we needed anything.

The beach was 3 1/2 minute walk from the house and shopping and restaurants were 5 minute walk. So convenient.

We would definitely rent this house again if/when we come back to Kauai!!!

The house was perfect for our extended family. It had every modern amenity, plus was across the street from the beach and walking distance to the center of town. The mountain views from the top floor were amazing. Most impressive was Pure Kauai, who took care of our every need. We did not want to leave. We definitely recommend the property and highly recommend booking it through Pure Kauai.

Plenty of room, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We book this wonderful house for a week to celebrate our 40th anniversary with our 3 grown sons and their wives. The house is spacious and we never felt that we didn't have room to spread out. The kitchen on the top floor is the "working" kitchen, we used the downstairs kitchen to store extra food and drinks in the frig and to store our Costco purchases and just brought everything up when needed.

The highlight for the 3 "30 something couples" was having our own bathrooms for each bedroom. It gave an amount of privacy that made the week even better.

This house is really close to the beach and to the town. Yes, you can walk everywhere and that Hanalei Bay is so large we never felt like we were fighting crowds.

There is a wonderful farmers market on Tuesdays just up the road past Hanalei, it is a great place to get fresh local produce and don't forget to stop at the "pie Lady" and purchase a slice or a whole pie. We had it for dessert one night and loved the passion fruit cheesecake.

Our island host, Justin, was great. He answered all our questions and arranged outings for us and even a private surf lesson for 3 of our kids.

We would rent this home again if we are in the north side of kauai. We felt safe and tucked away a bit from the town. Ke'e and Tunnels Beach are literally 17 minutes away enabling us to get there earlier than the Poipu crowd and find a parking spot without having to drive an hour.

We loved eating at Postcards Cafe (reservations needed) it was a delightful way to end our celebration week.

Hale Aku

What a GREAT house! ALL the amenities...twice (coffee makers, washer/dryers/toasters, silverware). Beautiful bedrooms, plush bedding/towels. Amenities like boogie boards, beach chairs, mats, a cooler, beach towels....all there. Pure Kauai is on top of it all. Quick to respond to all our inquiries and needs. I would highly recommend this property and Pure Kauai to book through.

Spacious, comfortable home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Hale Aku and can't say enough about what a lovely home it is. Our family of six had ample room to spread out and make ourselves comfortable. The house is less than a half block walk to the beach and about 1.5 blocks to Hananlei-we walked everywhere and felt comfortable with our teens doing the same. The property was well equipped with a lovely kitchen, comfortable beds and beautiful views of the mountains. Heads-up that there is not a lot of outdoor space as land is at a premium this close to the beach but we enjoyed the balconies and large windows. We are already looking forward to returning!
