Beautiful property - perspective from traveling w/little kids

  • 4 of 5

We came here with 3 couples and 2 toddlers (~1 1/2 years old). First, the location is excellent and the home is beautiful and comfortable. It was easy to walk to the small bay and Po'ipu beach is a very close drive. Gale was quite accessible and very ready to provide information. She's more involved than other hosts, so that was a different experience for us; we are more used to benign neglect.

I know this doesn't apply to many, but from the perspective of having a couple little kids roaming around - the bottom half of the house is pretty child-proofed and they have lots of pool/beach toys and even an umbrella stroller that came in handy for us. The main hazards were the stair cases (blocked on the bottom floor) and the outside/pool area. So if you're traveling with little ones, you'll have to keep a close eye.

The other thing that may not apply to most is that being 7 months pregnant, the lack of A/C in the common area upstairs was tough for me especially if I had to stay in the house waiting for a naptime to end in the late afternoon. The west facing windows have incredible views but they also get LOTS of sun so it warms up quickly. The bottom area is a bit cooler because it's less exposed.

All in all, I think this is a great property. But given our particulars - little kids, very pregnant, maybe not the best time for us to visit this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my home. We try our best to make every effort in making your experience as wonderful as possible. I am a little confused about your comment about no air conditioning in the public area upstairs..WE DO HAVE AIR CONDITIONING UPSTAIRS IN THE PUBLIC AREA which was installed 2 years ago. I do hope to have all of you again as guests at Hale Hokuu Too. Thank you, Gale

Paradise Found On Kauai - It's called Hale Hokuu Too!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Kauai for the past 19 years and have stayed in a number of residences along the south shore. Hale Hokuu Too is possibly the most complete rental property we have found. Gale wants her guests to have the best possible experience during their stay. She is attentive to all requests. The main floor living area is spacious with spectacular ocean views. The kitchen is well appointed with new appliances and almost every gadget and tool you could possibly imagine. The pool area is well maintained with plenty of lounges and pool accessories. Used the gas BBQ on a number of occasions. Cooking with an ocean view! So nice to have laundry facilities which are clean and neat. Wifi worked great as well. Used the main A/C unit once (for 20 minutes) in our 15 days because their is nice cross ventilation throughout the house. Weekly yard and pool service the grounds in impeccable order. Housekeeping service during our stay was a nice touch. Plenty of shopping within a 5 minute drive. Living Market is a great source for specialty purchases and Big Save let's you finish all grocery purchases. Long's Drug is a great resource. Try La Spezia in Koloa for great Italian cuisine. Merrimans and Roys 1849 let you splurge for a romantic evening. We've already booked for 2018 - 3 weeks this time because this feels like 'home' to us.

Even better than described...

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific vacation and what a beautiful location! The upstairs main room felt much bigger in person than the pictures reflect ( and it looks big in the pics) which was nice. All of the rooms were clean and well maintained upon our arrival. All beds were made with good linen and we had plenty of towels for the pool plus pool floats, noodles and boogie boards. We had no problems with anything either inside or outside the house. We made good use of the kitchen which was fully equipped for the 7 of us. The nearby beach really is just a few minutes walk away and so is Spouting Horn though you don't even need to walk there because you can see it from the pool.

I strongly recommend a stop at Living Foods Market located in the shopping center by Long's. Their food was amazing. My friends and I ate there several times.

Gale was attentive and responsive but not overly so in any way. I would not just recommend renting this home but would recommend renting any property from Gale. She was delightful. I certainly intend to book this home again and would not be surprised to be competing with my accompanying friends for future vacation dates.

Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

First, I would like to compliment Gale on being such an attentive host. She was in contact with us before, during and after our trip, making sure we had what we needed. It certainly instilled a confidence in our choice in properties.

Our trip was to celebrate a significant birthday and two anniversaries. What a perfect choice! You cannot truly appreciate how close to the ocean, beach and beauty of the area this home is until you are there. Gale has made sure her property is well maintained and clean. 3 couples each had their own bedroom and bath, as well as a perfect work spot in the downstairs family area just off the poolside.

Just minutes away are so many wonderful local retail shops and 2 great farmer's markets on Monday and Wednesday, that we found little need for a trip into Lihue. Most days were spent venturing out, but we looked forward to coming back to this restful, comfortable home. While we were in the neighborhood of some of the best island restaurants, we enjoyed cooking most evenings or having light fare at "home" after finding a great lunch spot.

Would we recommend Hale Hokuu Too? You bet we would! We have it as a HomeAway favorite and have already shared our find with many of our friends. While no place is perfect, you can't get much closer than Gale's beautiful paradise home. We are already talking about next time!

Wonderfully Affordable Oceanfront Poipu Home

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Kauai many times, and have driven by all those wonderful,oceanfront homes hundreds of times, and for some reason I never looked into renting one of them. I continued to spend over $500/night for small, uncomfortable rooms at hotel resorts.

This last time, after stumbling across VRBO, I discovered Hale Hokuu Too. Lucky me!

The location was perfect. It is on Kukuiula Bay. Although I think I've gone to every beach on Kauai at least five times, I had never been to this bay before. Boy was I surprised. We pretty much had the beach (and bay) to ourselves everyday. Our 3-year old toddler loved the sandy beach and snorkeling with all the fish.

And after spending several hours at the large, sandy beach on the bay, we walked a few minutes back to Hale Hokuu Too and spent hours swimming in the pool.

After spending our days at the beach and the pool, we barbecued fresh fish on the propane BBQ while watching the sunset over the Spouting Horn.

This home and its location were so wonderful that we didn't even use our rental car and drive anywhere during the first week we were there. Poipu (Koloa) is so walker/jogger friendly that my wife and I (with stroller in tow) walked 5 to 10 miles each day (while we tried not to gain any weight from all of the gourmet meals we prepared on the BBQ and newly updated kitchen).

The home has lots of windows and sliding doors that we opened to let the island breezes flow through. During our time there, we never used any of the airconditioners that are in each bedroom. The house was always comfortable.

I wish I knew how to attach pictures to this review. While Gale was amazing and extremely responsive, the pictures she has on the website do not do justice for the extreme joy we experienced during our two weeks in her home.

I've vacationed in Hawaii 30 or 40 times, and none of my previous Hawaii vacations compare to staying in this home, walking next door to the "private" beach, swimming in the pool, lounging on the ocean front chairs while watching the sunset and then barbecuing dinner by the pool/ocean.

While you can spend more money for other oceanfront homes that have been recently remodeled, dollar-for-dollar (and location wise, regardless of the nightly rate), you can't go wrong with Hale Hokuu Too.

Stop shopping and contact Gale to book this property (unless you want to spend more money for an inferior property).
