Great Family Vacation
Beautiful home and easy process. Owner very accessible and property manager helpful too. Easily vacationed with 8 adults and 1 infant - plenty of space and accommodations. Loved the outside space by pool and bbq - spent a lot of time enjoying the shade and breeze! Property did a good job of making sure there were plenty of fans due to lack of a/c - but the upstairs in particular was nearly uninhabitable in the afternoons - even at the end of October. If you’re out and about during this time you wouldn’t notice as it cools nicely at night, but we had to drive around to nap our baby as he couldn’t deal with the temps up there at all.
Overall I’d definitely recommend this property - it was gorgeous and perfect for our family. Pics are just like reality!
Thank you for your review! We’re very happy to hear that you were able to enjoy the facilities of the house! As for the temperature upstairs, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused. I will look into some ideas you suggested. Thank for staying at KuKilaKila
Just got back from 2 weeks at this lovely home. We had 3 couples staying first week and family came second week. It was ideal for both groups. We cooked some and used the grill. Loved the covered patios and splash pool and hammock. Quiet location on the golf course although the golf crews were out there early everyday. Beds were comfy and lots of fans going kept the house reasonably cool. Early October was still in the 80's with high humidity. Wonderfully located near grocery store/bar/breakfast place and some nice little shops. We loved being "local" vs. stuck at a resort. The house had all the beach stuff we could ever need and it got used! Short drive into Hanalei town...our favorite spot. Nice beaches, restaurants and mountains. Little more rain here but mostly short warm showers. We did lots on the island. Will definitly return to this area of Kauai. If you have a good sized group this is a great house!! Must do the Makai sunset golf cart tour....you can take drinks with you and see amazing views. This house is on the 11th green!
Thank you for your kind message! We’re happy to hear you were able to enjoy the amenities at the house, including the location of the home on Makai golf course! We’re also happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience on the island as a whole. Kauai truly is a wondrous place, and we hope to see you back in the future!
Hot in Princeville!!
While we did love Kauai, I can not recommend renting this home in the hot summer months!! It was in the high 80’s each day so the house was hot!! There were some nice breezes flowing through the rental but not enough to feel comfortable. And the screen doors were not in good shape and didn’t close fully so flies were able to get in. We did appreciate the shady covered lanai and pool. They helped cool us down after busy days on the island. The kitchen was very nice and fully stocked with everything you would possibly need. The beds were comfortable and the master bathroom was nice. The garage was stocked with beach gear and Thames, the house manager, replaced two broken chairs quickly. He even brought us extra flippers when we needed them for snorkeling. Overall, the house was a good location and ok for a four night stay.
My team and I would like to thank you for staying at Kukilakila. The ceiling fans in all the rooms, in addition to the standing fans, were provided in order for our guests to feel comfortable despite the weather. However, we acknowledge that the heat still ended up being an issue, and we apologize that you did not feel as though the house was adequately ventilated. Many houses in Kauai do not have air conditioning because electricity is quite expensive. When we bought the house from the previous owners, we looked into installing air conditioning regardless, but it was not compatible with the existing conventions on the property. We do thank you for bringing this to our attention though, and will continue to look for improved methods of ventilation for future guests.
We also apologize for the difficulties you had with the screen doors. We’re planning to replace the doors, but unfortunately shipping such products to the island will take a few weeks.
My team and I are glad to hear that the property was otherwise well stocked and suited your needs. Despite the issue posed by the weather, we hope your time on the island was incredibly memorable and enjoyable. Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your experience!
The property was exactly as we had hoped, the kids loved having a pool for late night swims. Location was perfect for travelling the island. Missing Kauai already!
Thank you for your kind review. We’re so happy to hear that the property accommodated your needs and contributed to your experience on the beautiful island of Kauai!

It was big rainy in midnight, during stay,but in daytimes were very few rain.
So every day, we could play golf in several golf courace in all Kauai island.
Property manager is so kindly and so quick response from my ask.
We all didn't have any problem.
All of us have stayed in so comfatable.
Thank you very much.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We’re very happy to hear that you had a comfortable stay and were able to enjoy the golf courses on the island. It was an absolute pleasure to host you, and we would love to have you back in the future.
Great house for large group
Great property for a larger group; lots of lounging space, real beds & baths, and a big kitchen for cooking. The lack of AC in July was at times a bit uncomfortable, but there are fans everywhere (including the covered patio) and it’s a good excuse to make a drink and jump in the pool. House came with all the beach gear you could pack in two trunks, which was really convenient. Owner was on top of communication and had lots of recommendations if you’re looking for things to do. Last note I’ll make is to bring or buy bug spray if you plan on hanging outside past sunset; its not bad during the day, but it’s a tropical island and the mosquitos come out in force!
Mahalo for the wonderful review. I am please to know that you and your family had wonderful time on your vacation. Our team tries their best to make sure each of the clients are well cared for. I like to make sure my clients know what they are getting when they rent my property. For me the communication is very important so my clients are comfortable when they are renting the property. Mahalo for renting KuKilakila
