vacation rental description


Welcome to 'Hale Lokahi', where the only thing between the lanai and the ocean is the long sandy beach that seems to go for miles. The covered oceanfront lanai runs the full width of the house, so you have a front row seat from which to view sizzling sunsets over the ocean towards the island of Niihau. There are very few actual beachfront houses on the Westside, as most have a road between the house and the ocean. BUT NOT HERE!

You can walk to anything and everything from this location. The Waimea River is just short walk away offering fishing and kayaking opportunities. In less than 5 minutes, you can walk to either of the large grocery stores in Waimea, several restaurants and shops, or take in a movie at the Historic Waimea Theater. Walk in the footsteps of Captain Cook, where he came ashore in 1778 as the first Westerner to come to Hawaii. This is old Hawaii and far from the tourist crowds. Quiet and peaceful with the dry sunny climate that guarantees you the best weather for your vacation.

This lovely “beach cottage” belongs to one of the older families of Kauai. Until recently, it was used exclusively by their large family as a place to get together and enjoy the beach. Newly renovated, they have opened up their home to share with a few lucky vacationers. This may be just the place you have been looking for.

This one story cottage sits on a large oceanfront lot and offers 3 bedrooms, two of which are Oceanside, and all 3 have a/c. There are three full baths, so no one has to wait to get ready to enjoy the day. Life here is meant to be lazy and enjoyed. Take a long walk on the beach, sit in the shade of the covered lanai, or just enjoy a good book waiting for one of those fabulous Westside sunsets. Because we face westward, this is the only part of the island that has a sunset view over the ocean, and what a view this is. This house is spacious enough for 3 couples, a large family, or a couple celebrating their wedding with a wonderful honeymoon. There is a large kitchen, fully equipped to make a gourmet meal at home served at your own private ocean-side table. All the furniture and bedding is new along with an updated kitchen and baths. It’s not likely that you will have a rainy day here on the Westside, but if you want to catch one of those morning football games or watch a movie, you have a new 40'' flat screen LCD television complete with 'High Definition' Cable service! We also have a blu-Ray/DVD player, stereo system with CD and ipod dock, and of course, wireless Internet so you can stay stay connected.

So what are you waiting for? If you have the time, we have the perfect place for your vacation.

Just Perfect

Review submitted: August 30, 2013   Date of arrival: June 6, 2013

This was absolutely perfect!! Everything about the house and the week were better than we had hoped for. I have been to Hawaii 13 times since the mid 1970's and this was the best yet. We loved the quite side of the Island. Walking to the two grocery stores, the coffee shop, the Shave Ice almost every day and being treated like locals was probably the best part of the day. We only went on two "tours", the Blue Dolphin Napli Coast trip and the Canyon downhill bike ride. Both were well worth the money and highly enjoyable. The rest of teh time we just took one day at a time. You owe it to yourself to have a "Puka Dog", and the walking tour at the Kauai Coffee Plantation was informative and fun. We now "order" our coffee!!! My only hesitation about offering this review is that I don't want the house to book up to the point that we can't come back!!! You won't find a better place.

Wonderful Vacation at Hale Lokahi!!!!!

Review submitted: July 22, 2013   Date of arrival: June 22, 2013

We all THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay at Hale Lokahi !!!!! Thank you to Chad and management for making the experience very easy to book and very easy to enjoy!

I think the pix on the website are very thorough in describing the place - when you walk in from the garage, the beach view is EXCEPTIONAL! - everyone gasped - and I felt so happy that what I'd chosen for the family received that response. This was to be our picture window for a whole week! What the site doesn't describe are the full pantries and additional amenities (unexpected snorkel gear, bug spray, sun screen, e.g.). We used from the larder and replenished - seems like that's what the guests do. It was much appreciated! It was truly our own house, comfortable and accommodating.

My husband and I (in the master bedroom) sometimes had trouble sleeping because the waves were so POUNDING. That was perhaps the only drawback, getting a good night's sleep, but what could we expect, right ON the beach? Several other people who'd written in the house journal loved the ocean waves that lulled them to sleep. May depend on the time of year for the noise level? (we were there in late June 2013) Also, we've learned that rooster crowing is something you just can't get away from on the island, no matter where you are. Good thing we could relax and nap, if needed.

We all appreciated the clean, well-kept house, maps and books about Kauai and welcome basket. Clear instructions and directions, able to reach a manager if needed, very well organized!

Our adventures included Birds in Paradise motorized hang gliding above Kauai; Kipu Ranch ATV adventure (off road vehicles you drive yourself in the back country, leading to the site where they filmed Indiana Jones and waterfalls, includes lunch, VERY fun!), spectacular Waimea Canyon, snorkeling, of course sightseeing, JoJo's Shave Ice, Ishihara Market, and one day when we all just stayed home the whole day and played games and ate snacks, enjoying the lanai!

Staying at this house was a huge part of our fabulous week. We'd love to return and do business with you any time! We highly recommend this house!

Note about the beachfront: this is not a beach you can swim in, you have to drive to access snorkel beaches. There is muddy runoff from a nearby river so the water isn't always blue blue blue, but you can walk to a local pier and back and you're surrounded by blue water everywhere else, right? Also, the neighborhood is VERY low key, laid back, rustic, dusty. RELAX!
