A stunning property
We thoroughly enjoyed this house. It’s secluded and in a wonderful location. I would highly recommend this house to anyone planning to visit Kauai. Adrienne was fantastic to work with and gave us very helpful information. We loved it and we will return!
Private Oasis on the Beautiful North Shore of Kauai
DH and I just spent a wonderful week at Adrienne's home and we could not have been more pleased with our choice to stay here. This was our 5th trip to Kauai and we wanted a change from our normal resort vibe and this home was perfect. Her home has everything that you could think of from a toaster oven and rice cooker to beach chairs and coolers. Things like that that make it feel like home while your there!
The home does not have AC, and that is clear on the listing, but let me tell you we did not miss it at all and we live in the humid south where AC is a must. The windows in the home are all over and provide ample air flow throughout the home. There were even a few nights that I got chilly :-) The outdoor shower was a first for me and now I am in LOVE. It is such a great feature to use daily or to just rinse off the Kauai sand before entering the home.
We found many new, less populated beaches that were new to us this trip and they were all 15 mins away or less. Make sure that you visit Rock Quarry Beach, just across the main road. It was our fav since Tunnels was closed during our trip.
I cannot say enough good things about this property! It is so quiet and relaxing. (Only exception is the chickens. They are wild on Kauai and the norm. After a while you don't even hear them anymore). This home is the perfect setting to just veg out and relax. Adrienne was very helpful from start to finish and the entire process was easy. I am already trying to figure out my dates for 2020 so I can book her beautiful home again. Do yourself a favor and stay here!
Even better than I hoped it would be!
This lovely, well-equipped house is exactly as advertised, but its location and setting are even better! We thoroughly enjoyed many hours on the lanai listening to and watching birds, as well as the dance of clouds and sun across the mountains. During previous trips I stayed on the ocean, but the privacy and tranquility of this house was much better than a noisy condo with an ocean view - it was also a little cooler and salt spray free! The house catches the trade winds and never got too warm during the day and was cool at night. Since I was there with my granddaughter, I really appreciated the safe neighborhood. The owner was very easy to work with and the house was very clean and bug-free. I will absolutely book this house on my next trip to Kauai... thanks for sharing it!
Paradise in Paradise
We have stayed in three different rentals in the Kilauea area over the last 5 years. This was by far the best one. Property is in a lovely neighborhood on an open well maintained lot. Kitchen was well stocked with newer appliances and utensils. Bed are very comfortable. Large lanai is great for sitting and watching the sunsets. Good beach supplies to make your outings fun. Good cross ventilation kept us cool even on days in the upper 80's.
Another great stay at Hale Mahana!
This was my second stay at Hale Mahana and it was at least as wonderful as the first. Adrienne maintains the property in pristine condition and provides everything needed for a wonderful and relaxing vacation on Kauai's beautiful North Shore. I feel extremely lucky to have discovered Hale Mahana. It genuinely feels like my "home away from home" in Kauai. I'm already thinking about my next visit. Thanks for everything, Adrienne!
A Peaceful Retreat
If you are looking to get away from the world and enjoy a clean, quiet and well stocked home with two comfortable beds then this is your spot. You'll find everything you need in the kitchen to cook like you do at home...even spices and a few condiments in the refrigerator. For 5 stars it would have needed a gas grill (a charcoal grill is under the porch) and a better selection of channels on the cable (I'm a science channel junkie). If you are staying for more that a few days be prepared to resupply yourself with paper goods. If you are bar soap person, bring some with you. If roosters bother you at 5 AM don't come to Kauai. The owner responds quickly and if you behave yourself you'll get a quick return of your damage deposit. The beach gear was an added bonus. Be sure to try out the outside shower...wish I had one at home! Well worth the stay.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are thrilled that you had a positive and restful stay, but are a bit saddened that this review lowers our 5-star rating for items that were outlined to the guest upon booking. It sure sounds like all your personal preferences are more 'hotel' type conveniences. All the items you mentioned for improvement were clearly stated in the VRBO description or discussion by phone upon booking - charcoal grill, basic cable, even the Kauai-wide chickens. You never know when a rooster is in the neighborhood! All guests get a 'starter pack' (some dish soap, laundry soap, TP, paper towels) to get you going on your trip. Even the showers have body wash supplied. Like any rental, if you need extra, its up to you to get what you need. The outdoor shower is one of the best experiences - it is just the Kauai way of life! We hope you return to the island soon. -Hale Mahana Manager
