THIS IS WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING....

* The house was great and we had a fantastic time in Kauai. It is hard to get back into the daily grind again. I will contact you when we return to Kauai.

GUESTS FROM LA MESA, CA

* We had a wonderful time at Shaka Hale. We absolutely loved the house, it is truly a gem - fantastically appointed and very beautiful. Mahalo for introducing us to this beautiful place.

GUESTS FROM CONCORD, MA

* Our stay in Kauai was great. Much because of this impressive house and friendly locals. It is not often that a house is even better than in the pictures! As you know I am a real estate professional, and this kind of rental property is rare. The community of Kekaha was really friendly. We often recived mangos on our door step, and we were invited to the 4th of July fireworks with the neighbors.

GUESTS FROM OSLO, NORWAY

* It was wonderful beyond words! I wish I was still there. I can't recall the last time I felt that relaxed. The house had every amenity one would ever need and was very beautiful and comfortable. Would it be redundant to say we found 'perfection in paradise'? I will check your web site 'cause I'm coming back!

GUESTS FROM HOUSTON, TX

* Oh....Gosh....I really swear that we could write a book to you about this property! We had an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G time! The house was absolutely perfect and the fact that it was directly across from the beach was even more perfect! We spent every evening grilling and chilling at the kitchen table. Either telling stories or talking about what we had experienced that day. This was a TRUE vacation for all of us. There were NO complaints from my family. We all were very sad to leave Kauai. We had 10 days of total sunshine on Kekaha, regardless of what was happening on the other sides of the island. THAT to me was amazing! We would literally drive 5 miles away from the house into clouds, rain and wind. Head back to Kekaha and had total sunshine and 84 degrees! I hate to think of what will happen to that pristine side once others figure out how beautifully consistent the weather is. This will forever be a vacation I won't forget! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

GUESTS FROM Palm Desert, CA

* We've returned from Kauai and are finding it hard to adjust to the Norther California climate. We had two wonderful weeks in Kekaha, and Shaka Hale had a lot to do with it. It was perfect for our family. It's a great house, and we all loved staying there. Thanks for all your advice and assistance. Aloha!

Destination Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Kauai for our 10 year anniversary. Shaka Hale, as with our other destinations on the island, exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect! Nice quiet neighborhood far from highly travelled tourist areas. Wimea Canyon is a short drive away and was our favorite day trip of our vacation. The house has absolutely everything you need to make yourself at home and more. Pictures do not do this place justice. Highly recommend for families and or couples.

Great home, great views, great sunsets and great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was decorated so uniquely with awesome lanai both upstairs and down. We simply love this part of Kauai and the quaint little town of Waimea just down the road. We had family in rented home next door which worked out well with them being side by side to accommodate us all. Both homes were equipped with everything we would have needed while there. All were very pleased!

Great Family Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our get away to Shaka Hale. The home is beautiful and was spacious for our family of 7. The Lanai's were wonderful to catch a morning breeze and listen to the surf - of course with a cup of Hawaiian coffee. We enjoyed this laid back side of the island - with lots of sun and great sunsets. The kitchen had every piece of equipment we could have needed. We also appreciated the variety of beach supplies (chairs, mats, toys for our toddler) that were available in the garage. There are several beautiful beaches in close proximity - including a short walk across the street! We kept the house open during the day when we were around. We closed it up at night and utilized the air conditioning. This kept things quiet and cool for sleeping. There is road noise that affected our sleep the first night when we tried to keep the house open. The traffic didn't bother us at all during the day. Chad was very accommodating and timely in responses to any questions we had - including providing a "pack and play" for our 18 month old. I would recommend Shaka Hale to any group traveling to Kauai! You will love it!

Shaka Hale Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family vacation at Shaka Hale last week and had a blast. The accommodations were perfect for our family of 7 (6 adults and an infant). We had ample space and a great view of the ocean. This side of the island gives you the sun for most of the day. And - the sunsets are incredible. We loved watching the sunsets on the second floor porch. The house is so well build that it is quiet and allows for people to move around without bumping into each other. We loved buying fresh fish and having world class gourmet meals in the state of the art kitchen.

Chad was the perfect contact and made sure we had everything we needed. They also had all the beach necessities for us to use. We would definitely come back!

Great stay at Shaka Hale

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the house during our stay in July. Chad is very easy, and nice, to communicate with and always responded back in efficient amount of time. The house’s accommodations were excellent. We had 7 adults staying in the house and we had plenty of room. The house was beautiful and family friendly. In the garage were an assortment of beach toys, fishing gear, chairs and coolers, and there’s easy access to the beach. The kitchen was wonderful to use and was well stocked with appliances/utensils. We would definitely recommend this house, and using Chad again in the future!

30th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of enjoying our 30th wedding anniversary with our 3 children, 1 grandson, and 1 sister in law. We stayed 7 days at Shaka and did not regret one moment. Kauai was all that people say it is, Paradise with chickens. Shaka Hale is a beautiful house with a bit of rustic charm. Japanese artistry and decor was very nice, tying in that part of the Hawaiian culture. The road in front of the beach was not a problem, and hearing the surf at night made up for the very minor traffic passing by. During the day we were out sightseeing anyway, so daytime traffic didn’t matter. We rented two cars and both fit into the spacious garage. Spent many nights outside gazing at the very dark skies. Shaka Hale is on the west end of Kauai so the stars are more vivid due to its dryer climate. There was not a thing needed that Shaka did not provide. Beautiful is all I can say and hopefully return with my family again very soon. Pros: Far from the general tourist resorts, Dark skies, Near Wamea Canyon, Rustic, spacious for 7 people, romantic, beachfront, and felt like home. Cons: far from Lihue and attractions on east, and north side of island, dark roads so make yourself familiar with streetview in goggle map, chickens chickens and more chickens, road in front of house (light traffic). All of us miss Kauai, and Shaka Hale. We will return!
