Going back to Hawaii for the first time since our honeymoon, our family could not have had more relaxing, serene accommodations. Wayne was extremely responsive to our needs. Highlights were enjoying coffee on the lanai every morning while listening to the breeze move through the palm trees. It was the perfect way to start our days. We loved the convenience of the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed cooking meals to start our adventures or at the end after a long day exploring. Despite the Lava Man triathlon taking place part of the time we were there, the property was quiet, comfortable. Very well equipped - anything you could need for a day at the beach was readily available. The recommendations that were left by the management company about where to go and what to do were spot on! We spent nine days exploring and were able to see Volcanos National Park, South Point (green sand), Punalu?u Beach (black sand), attended a luau, ventured down into Waipi'o valley, whale watching, a fantastic lunch at Merriman's (a
We absolutely loved our stay at Pali Ke Kua. The view from this unit was spectacular. The complex was well located and made getting around the island very easy. The unit itself was well equipped with beach gear, kitchen supplies and linens. We were surprised that some toilettries weren't provided - shampoo and conditioner (despite us being told they would be). The unit itself was clean, the kitchen was modern, the bed comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and lanai well set up. The unit could do with an upgrade to the furniture - it was dated and uncomfortable. The carpeting in the unit should also be replaced as it's difficult not to track in sand. Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would aboslutely return.
THIS PLACE IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The views, the accommodations themselves, and the location were all just perfect. Unlike some properties that manage to make a decent place look like a mansion, the pictures here don't do it justice. My husband and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon and we will plan any future visits around the availability of this home. We enjoyed the location to Hideaways beach and got our full share of snorkeling in. They provided fun beach supplies as well, and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies and pleanty of the basics for cooking. The only two things were weren't prepared for was the lack of air conditioning, which truly you do not need once the sun sets with the fans and windows open, and the washer was not working properly for our stay. Re/max went above and beyond to help us with that problem and took our laundry away to do it and brought it back within 12 hours. We could not have been happier about our stay and this place.
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.
we returned to hale lani because we loved it so much a few years ago. however, we were sad to see that the house and grounds have not been kept up. i contacted eric, the property manager to tell him that the outside shower was not draining, several lights were out, the grounds needed cleaning up. plus when we arrived the house was broiling because everything was closed up and the window shades were not down. he was mildly interested and disagreed that the house was hot on arrival. NOT great service. i paid a lot to stay at hale lani....not sure i will come back during my next kauai trip. i am a bit surprised that hawaii life would let this happen.
The owners of this condo have done a very nice job of furnishing and decorating it. It is welcoming, clean, and nicely maintained. It also very spacious with plenty of sitting areas. We loved the private beach area and were lucky enough to see an octopus while snorkeling there.
We booked Hale Malanai in Poipu for 17 nights in August 2017. We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing stay and were impressed with the comfortable and comprehensive accommodations. Everything went smoothly thanks to the professional management of Poipu 365, as we were greeted with beautiful Hawaiian music, flowers and a welcome letter, and they were always very accessible for questions and advice. Hale Malanai was stocked with everything we needed to get started and experience our home away from home. The location is perfect for beaches, Waimea Canyon, restaurants, and shopping. All our in home meals were held out on the Lanai in the fresh open air, but we could have easily eaten inside around the spacious dining room. We were especially impressed with the kitchen gadgets and appointments, with everything a gourmet chef would require. We relished the beautiful ocean view, and retiring for the evening with the sound of waves lulling us to sleep.
This condo is just a fairly narrow strip of lawn from the edge of the cliff with a view of the cliffs farther along the coast and the sun setting behind the cliffs. The interior is comfortably furnished with a couple of portable AC units to counter that westering sun. A rather steep path from the parking lot could be problematical for those who are unsteady on their feet.
This was the best home rental experience we have ever had. The home was immaculate and well-designed. Appliances were all new and the location cannot be beat! Walking distance to shops, restaurants, and BABY BEACH. Perfect for families with little ones. Making reservations was very easy as well.
Overall it was outstanding. The location, views and home floor plan are excellent. In fact, we could not ask for more. The home needs updates, repairs and maintenance. Appliances such as the refrigerator and kitchen sin need to be replaced. Water temperature and pressure were a chronic problem. Never had hot water in the kitchen and several of the baths had either very cold or very hot water. The pool, grounds and decks were ideal. The cleanliness and base supplies were perfect. We ended up buying and leaving a lot of basics as we found them. All in all a magical experience which could have been perfect with better repairs and maintenance.
We had a terrific time and enjoyed our stay at your condo. We loved that we could get access to the resort pools and towel service and still have the privacy and space of the condo. Very well decorated and well kept!! Thank you.
A wonderfully located home with quick access to north shore beaches and activities. The set up the house was perfect for my wife and I and our 5 children. We could swim, gather for board games and dinners or find a quiet corner to settle into with a book. Everyone that we dealt with associated with the house was professional, gracious and very well informed. We cannot wait to return to Kauai and Kumulani will be our first choice for lodging.
We love K5, because of its privacy. we love peace and quiet and that's what we get here. we bought CLR to clear out mineral deposits in the shower heads, but they barely spray out water. the carpet needs to be cleaned, and it seems that several kitchen utensils have disappeared. In spite of this, we still loved out stay...just a little general maintenance needs to be done around the place.
