Aloha! This was our second Christmas at Hale Ko'olau and we're trying to figure out out if we can do it again next year! We just love the place and can't overstate how super it really is...at least at 'House of the Chief', our waterfront 'beach house'! This year it was pretty windy on the east shore but we loved the waves regardless from our comfy living room and house size kitchen with dishwasher. Our own laundry is also a treat!Otilani, the manager (and now friend) is so welcoming and gracious and was happy to go to any lengths to make sure our stay was enjoyable....we love her (and her family!) This house is roomy...but do expect rustic charm...this is not a 5 star Waikiki pad! If you're looking for a wonderful country retreat away from the touristy rush and want to do your own thing this is your place! Close to lots of activities, beaches and snorkelling (Turtle Bay is great and safe). Enjoy! We would go back in a heartbeat!

We just recently stayed at Kauai Kai and it was lovely! The condo is kept clean and well maintened. Everything that we needed was there. Huula is a well located town in the northshore. You are near a foodland and not far from all the best beaches Northshore has to offer like Sunset beach, You are about 1hour away from downtown which is no problem because the drive on Kamehameha highway is very pleasant. You have the ocean on one side and beautiful mountains on the other. I felt very safe there, the condo was extremely peaceful and the staff very friendly. I recommend this condo, perfect for a couple!
