Yes, we went back This little cottage is amazing. The views, location, privacy are unparalleled. This special place brought us back after our first visit two summers ago. Everything works with all the necessary features. Great bathroom and a comfortable ned. Can’t say enough of how great the place treated us. The only downside (and only noticeable because we had been here before) was the lack easy repairs or improvements. The Hot tub cover in rags, unsanded and warped outdoor furniture, sticky doors and rusted beach camp chairs. Yes, these are small details and don’t take away from the overall amazing awesomeness, but for the price.... Response from Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers; Wednesday, September 25, 2019 Thank you for reserving with us at Hawaii Life. We are happy to her you enjoy our cottage. We did just recently get our order from the main land for the Hot tub cover and outdoor furniture is being addressed. Thank you we greatly appreciate your review.

Just short of perfection We visited recently for five days, and loved the exclusivity and unique nature of the property. Very private, and it provides access to one of the best beaches in Kauai. <br/><br/>Lesson learned, however, to carefully read the listing descriptions. This property does not have air conditioning, save for a small unit in the bedroom that really only works in the evening and allows you to sleep. Outside temps were in the high 80s, and due to the lack of ac and direct sunlight all day long, the rental is nearly unusable from 11am - 8pm. If there was shade, it would have been a bit better, but the rental has zero shade, and it just bakes. Additionally, since it was so hot, we had to leave the doors open all day long to hope for a breeze, which left the place unsecure if we needed to leave the property. There is a small safe, but security becomes an issue due to the lack of AC. For a luxury rental at this price point, not having AC is a huge miss. As special as this place is, I wouldn't be able to rent here again unless they install mini-splits that appropriately cool the place. <br/><br/>Also, there is a video camera posted directly above the front door. Mixed feelings here, I understand the owner wanting some security, but for a private villa where you're truly trying to get away, it's presence changed our comfort level.<br/><br/>The general condition of the property is nice, although it needs some work...wallpaper is peeling off the walls in places, there was a leaky shower and bathroom faucet, and the hot water heater only provides about 5 minutes of hot shower water before running out. <br/><br/>The bed is very comfortable, and the place has everything you'd need. The outdoor shower is a really cool touch. And the rental company is super communicative, and were there to help make our stay enjoyable despite the frustrations. <br/><br/>I want to love this place, and if some small things are addressed, would definitely come back. Response from Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers; Tuesday, August 27, 2019 Thank you for your comments It's true we have been in a heat wave this August. Thank you for letting us know about the leaky shower and faucet we will get this repaired. We hope you enjoyed your complimentary lunch at the new restaurant PV Eats for your inconvenience!

Great location! Some things need work... First off... the property's location is unbelievable. Very private, gated community, didn't see one person the entire week... Private trail access to Secrets beach... GREAT views... five minutes to Kilauea (good food, coffee, shops)... 15 minutes to Princeville/Hanalea.<br/><br/>The disappointments... <br/>Generally, the cottage was clean but more attention to detail (some dirty dishes, floor stains, dusty) would go a long way. The condition of the furniture (couches, chairs, outdoor furniture) were worn out and need replacement. Some minor annoyances... no dish soap, one box of tissue, a couple of rolls of TP, laundry detergent for one load, no second set of linens. Inadequate for one-week stay.<br/><br/>Management was good on most things but failed to arrange for bikes to be at the cottage after confirming twice.. And they should have checked in with us after there was a semi-hurricane. To see if we were ok and if there was any damage. The storm left the grounds a mess which we had to deal with on our own.<br/><br/>Overall, because of the location and privacy, we would stay there again. And because to fix the disappointments, it would take very little. Spend a few thousands of dollars to replace some furniture and make sure management inspects the property after each cleaning. That would do it.

Hazard Sharp edge of bed caused injury to my leg which then bled on the sheets. I was then charged for the sheets. Response from Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers; Sunday, November 18, 2018 Aloha William, Thank you for your comments and we are sorry to hear that you hurt yourself on the corner of the bed, I'm sure that didn't feel good. The sheets had many different stains which were not all related to the bed injury. We do hope that you enjoyed your stay and return to beautiful Kauai.

Kauai Small Home Pictures are accurate. The good: location wonderful, little town of Kilauea was wonderful, Hanalei great and 15-20 minutes, Secret Beach was short walk down a path which was adequately maintained and is a wonderful beach, views were tremendous. The bad: the home does not have A/C (there is a portable A/C unit in the bedroom which kind of cools it), it was oppressively hot and muggy upon our arrival, we asked that the property manager move an additional A/C unit for the main space from the adjacent home (we knew they managed both and the other was vacant as we had looked at both and checked while we were there), we were told they were too busy and it will cool down, they were right, but it took a full day and a half of our planned 3 day stay, we ended up sleeping with some of the lights on to keep the cockroaches at bay, lights went out and the cockroaches came out - and these were serious, like the size of a big toe.

Our stay at Hale Nanea Our 2nd month long stay on property. Property Management was excellent. Broker at Hawaii Life we used (Zietz) was worthless. Hawaii Life forgot one important factor as a Realtor..SERVICE TO CLIENT.. Never received one call to check on our needs in 30 days. Would not use Hawaii Life for any Real Estate need in Hawaii in the future.. Poor.Poor Service...

Perfect Place for Stargazing and Rainbows The cottage is small but perfect for two people. Very high end appliances and the water pressure was EXCELLENT! Knock-the-freckles-off kind of pressure - awesome! Outdoor shower was a dream. The heat was oppressive during August, and the ceiling fans and a little standing fan didn't help much unfortunately. We had a rare thunderstorm one evening which cooled everything down and was lovely. Secret Hideaway Beach down below the property became "our" beach and rarely had more than a dozen people. Secluded property and away from lights so the stars felt almost close enough to touch. Booking through Hawaii Life was easy-breezy. Arrival procedures were seamless and all was in perfect condition. Will book again with Hawaii Life. Response from Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers; Wednesday, November 8, 2017 Aloha! Thank you so much for your excellent review and recommendation! The location of this home is definitely something special and it sounds like you were able to enjoy some peaceful starry nights at home. Secret Beach Hideaway is so beautiful and we are glad to hear you were able to enjoy it's location and privacy! The heat during August was very intense due to lack of the normal trade winds and could be unrelenting at times. It's good to know that this did not take away from your enjoyment too much and you were able to experience a heat-relieving thunderstorm! We appreciate you being such pleasant guests and we look forward to helping you book your next Hawaii Vacation home!

Not coming back Unfortunately, I would not recommend this rental to anyone. For the record, my wife and I are not tough graders but we were really not pleased with this villa on our honeymoon. First off, the place is a SAUNA with no AC. When we entered for the first time, it was close to 90+ degrees. If you cannot sleep in heat then this is not the place for you. Second, when we arrived, we plugged in the fans and the circuit failed. In the middle of the night, I had to go out and find the circuit breaker and flip it on. There were a couple more things that were very unpleasant about the place. The bird poop is literally out of control and is everywhere on the outside of the property. On top of that , when we arrived, the lawn was overgrown. Lastly, the online instructions were completely wrong and outdated. The wifi network and password that are provided online are nonexistent (the manual inside the villa has the correct wifi info). The safe inside the villa is broken and does not work as well.<br/><br/>Lastly, the positives. Incredible view and only a few minutes to Secret Beach which is incredible. Secluded area which we enjoyed. Only a few minutes to the beautiful Princeville area. <br/><br/>Overall, we loved Kauai but would 100% not recommend this rental to anyone (actually surprised about the positive reviews here). We thought it was extremely overpriced for what we received. I warn you again, if you can&#x2019;t sleep in the Hawaiian heat, then this place is certainly not for you.

Perfect for a secluded getaway Hale Nanea is perfect for anyone looking to get away from it all. The property itself is gorgeous and very well appointed. We really loved the outdoor shower, jacuzzi, and used the grill 5/7 nights there. You could mostly enjoy the outdoor seating areas in the morning when the mosquitoes aren't out in full force and the sun is behind the house. In the afternoon and evenings, the lanai is flooded with sunlight--and gets quite hot--and the bugs start to come out. We enjoyed our happy hours and sunsets on the beach instead--can't really complain. The walk to the beach isn't for everyone--several hundred yards down a steep hill then cliff, which was fine for us but I couldn't imagine my parents, who are in their 60s, doing it everyday, sometimes twice or more a day. That said, once you get to the beach, there really is no better spot on the North Shore. Quiet. Secluded. Hike the lava rocks to a little waterfall. The waves are better too (albeit a bit dangerous).<br/><br/>The only reason I don't give the property 5 full stars is because of a few minor annoyances: the ceiling fan broke in the bedroom one night and it really was too hot to sleep without it (but it was fixed the next day), there was a hornets nest clear as day on the side of the house. Not sure why it hadn't been removed. Luckily, we were not stung, but we did have "company" during breakfast most mornings. Finally, and this was probably the biggest issue, there was construction at the property next door that began early in the morning -- sawing, banging, loud talking -- which was topped off by really loud rap music that killed any sense of serenity at Hale Nanea, which we mostly were able to drown out with our own music...but, resort would have booked you without a warning there would be construction. <br/><br/>Overall, I'd return to Hale Nanea any day. The positives far outweighed the negatives. Thanks for a great stay.

Mixed Being a gated single residence, we thought we would have privacy. However, one day a truck pulled in front of the place and two guys were looking at the exterior from the yard. Then another morning around 8:30 the hot tub maintenance guy walked right by the glass doors to the shower. No one called ahead of time to see if they could enter. We had no problem with people coming onto the property, but really did not like them coming without our knowing ahead of time.<br/><br/>The gardens were not well maintained and the ponds to the rear of the house were full of bullfrogs that croaked from 5 p.m. to early morning. Other than this is was a peaceful place and we enjoyed having the view of the ocean across the expansive lawn. Understand the property has sold and there may be houses built on the view side, which may obscure the view from the cottage.

The dishwasher did not clean dishes and we ended up using it as a drying rack for hand washing. The ice maker in the freezer was broken so we bought bags of ice.

Well managed isolation Our stay at this property was precisely what I'd hoped it would be.

It felt like a nice little home just outside the sleepy town of Kilaeua.<br/>We loved the grounds – very beautiful scenery for those times when we were at the property instead of out adventuring.
