This is the best house! Every bedroom has a bathroom. The views from the first floor and second are hard to tear yourself away from. The kitchen has all your needs. There is a large kitchen table, dining room table, and patio table. The beach is small but has fabulous views and water to swim, kayak and snorkel in. Bring your water shoes to protect from the coral. The management is receptive. The location is perfectly in between the north and south sides of the island. We could not have asked for anything more from a Hawaiian beach home.
We had a really great time and location was fantastic!
What an amazing property! Perfect for our group of ten, ages 7-75. Well-kept, beautifully decorated, stocked with everything you need both inside and out (don’t rent snorkel gear until you’ve checked out what they have first), and the location was ideal. It’s a quick drive to some of our favorite beaches on the North shore yet still close enough to make Kapaa and South shore activities doable. Or, just stay at the house and enjoy the view and snorkeling ten yards out the back door (great coral, many fish and a couple eel sightings). The house owner, Anaik was exceptionally quick to help us, when the AC in one of the rooms wasn’t working she had it fixed with 24 hours. Incredible attention…better than any of the many VRBOs we’ve rented through the years. A massage on the lanai, set up by the concierge, was well worth it. If you’re looking for a silly adventure we HIGHLY recommend 808 Goat Yoga. That was our two tween girl’s favorite activity of the trip. It’s as hysterical as you imagine and just a five minute drive from the house. The owner of 808 also gives a little history and cultural significance of the Anahola area which was a bonus. Bottom line - our best VRBO experience on our favorite island. Don’t hesitate. Aloha and mahalo until next time.
Amazing property and location! We had a wonderful time on this beautiful island. Thank you for a wonderful stay at this property. We all loved it!
Everything was as advertised. Communication and responsiveness from Anaik was great. This is a great property for a “large” family. Location makes everything on the island pretty accessible but start early if you are going to the canyon!
We spent four days in this home and a similar property two doors down. It was wonderful! The property manager was nice to work with. It is located on the beach, and the bay had the best snorkeling we found on the island with turtles, eels, etc. The only downside we experienced is that Verizon doesn't have good signal at the homes.
This property was perfect for both friends and family. Plenty of space to spread out but also cozy for dining and playing games.
The beach is protected and you can swim pretty much any time of the day (bring your reef shoes).
Anaik is amazing - very thoughtful and if you need anything just ask. This house has all you need!!
Aloha blessings and Mahalo
Everything about this home, from the service—which started well before the trip (Anaik is amazing)— to the house, the grounds, and the location were top notch. The house is gorgeous, the art impeccable, and the location and grounds breath taking. We had 4 kids under 5 and the huge back yard and the calm beach were fantastic. I can’t recommend this location highly enough!
The house was amazing. So well decorated, well designed, well maintained and good for our large group. The view and deck/yard is amazing. The kitchen is huge. The property manager was exceptionally responsive. Very happy with our experience
Oh my goodness, we all loved this property. So beautiful and peaceful. The home is truly lovely, lots of room, beautifully furnished, super comfortable and lots of intriguing artwork. The owner provides just about everything you can think of, short of groceries! The setting is awe inspiring and we all loved sitting on the patio morning and night and watching the waves. The beach is very nice, but you’ll need water shoes, and we all swam every day. The stars at night were incredible to see. Honestly, this is the best property we’ve ever stayed in and we’ve stayed in a lot. Location is perfect for getting both north and south on the island. Can’t imagine anyone not falling in love Hale Aloha like we did!!
Beautiful home in an ideal location. Sitting on the lanai looking out on the ocean that was just steps away was wonderful. Our teens enjoyed having a basketball backboard and used the other balls and croquet set everyday.
The property was absolutely the best we could hope for with our dozen adults and three small children.
We had a group of 11 ranging in age from 19 to 80. The property was truly lovely and had plenty of room to spread out as well as plenty of room when we all wanted to be together. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this property!
What an incredible place to call home for a week! Anaik and her team created a wonderful experience for my family and friends! Thank you 🙏
This property was amazing ! The pictures do not do it justice …the house is laid out so Adults can be upstairs with breathtaking views of the ocean and the young adults in their own wing of the house … The lawn was large for volleyball , croquet , or tossing the frisbee … then open the gate and step down onto the beach and ocean .. it was a 10!!
The word Aloha has always held special meaning for our family. When I was looking at houses to rent (my very first time renting a vacation home) and came across this one, it was just what I wanted for our daughter's small family wedding. But when I saw the name of the house, I knew it was the perfect house for us.
Like others have said, the pictures do not do the house justice. The house was absolutely a dream. The vintage Hawaiiana and surfer art throughout the house was unbelievable. The decor, bedding and furnishings were all so tastefully curated, authentically Hawaiian, clean, and so very comfortable. I'm really picky when it comes to decor and furnishings and I can honestly say there is not one thing I would have changed about Hale Aloha.
Our group was 12 adults (ages 25-60) and 3 children, so we rented the cottage also. The cottage was perfect for the family with the 3 little ones. The house itself never felt crowded as everyone had plenty of space. And each bedroom having its own bathroom was ideal. The wedding itself was at a church on the island, but we gathered at the house after for a catered dinner. The catering company loves working at the house because of the large kitchen. We cooked dinners most every night for the large group and had all the components we needed in the kitchen. The bonus beverage refrigerators and ice maker were so handy.
The beach accessories and toys were great--many were used often. The hammocks were wonderful too. We didn't turn on the TV until the last day for my son to see some sports highlights. One thing that was a pleasant surprise was the SONOS speaker system throughout the lower level.
The beach itself was great for the kids. The reef kept the big waves from coming to shore but yet they were still close enough to listen to and stare at for hours. Sleeping with the doors and windows open was my favorite way to end each night. The air conditioning was really not needed in the bedrooms--well, except for when the bride was getting ready!
The house was also in a perfect location. The town of Kaap'a is not too far--we loved several restaurants and shops there. And Hanalei is an easy 30 minute drive.
The most difficult part of the whole magical week was saying goodbye to Hale Aloha. It was a dream come true.
This place is heaven on earth. You won’t regret anything except that you have to leave
This was the perfect place for our family group of 12, made up of grandma and three families, including five grandchildren ranging from 1-12 years old. The safe beach right outside the large grass back yard was just perfect for us! Everything was clean and well-stocked. Communication with the manager, Anaik, was quick and easy. Questions were answered, problems were resolved. We highly recommend Hale Aloha!
We had a tremendous week at this villa and would gladly return. The photos undersell how stunning the home is. A great spot with a lot of space and an amazing lawn and terrace where we spent hours. Fantastic for kids (we had 6 ages 3 months to 5 years). And totally seamless and supportive help from the host. Totally recommend.
This Hawaiian home is gorgeous and extremely well-maintained. It is located in a very nice neighborhood. My family and I felt completely safe the entire visit. The house is well-stocked with anything you could possibly need, even luxury body wash, shampoo, and conditioner! The owner put a lot of thought into what guests would need, especially in the area of kitchen utensils and appliances.
The beach is beautiful and calm and very private. Beautiful sunrises in the morning. It is an excellent location! Only about 15 minutes from Hanalei and the other beautiful north shore beaches and only about 15 minutes for Kapa'a where there is a nice selection of restaurants, cute shops, and a grocery store. The property manager was always quick to communicate with me about any questions or needs I had. She is extremely nice!
This is a great location for a large family/friends vacation. Plenty of room to spread out and large kitchen and dining tables for meals together. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Everything you need to fill your soul with much aloha is on this property. We hardly leave it when we’re there. Our family’s 3rd time staying here and we’re already looking forward to our next stay!
We spent 9 days here on Hale Aloha and had the best experience and this is a group that has traveled and rented VRBO’s together in several cities and countries. We had six couples, and each couple had their own bathroom and private space. We swam, snorkeled, and relaxed the days away on the secluded beach utilizing the provided water shoes, snorkels, fins, kayaks, surfboards, and boogie boards. Also, the yard is enormous. We set up the provided Croquet set for afternoon fun and sat out on the lawn under the stars in the evening. Several significantly sized common space areas are available to gather, and there are several large tables to set up and play games in the evenings. The location is perfect. It’s a secluded, quiet street, but you are very close to Princeville and Kapaa.
Jude is by far the best host I have ever experienced. The city cut the water for repairs while I was out playing Golf. I texted Jude, and she sent her husband down to investigate in minutes and reported back the problem and the timeline to fix it. The response time was remarkable! I would highly recommend Jude and Hale Aloha to any large group. Thank you, Jude. We will be back!
Hale Aloha was a wonderful property! We’ve stayed at a number of vacation rentals in Kauai, but none come close to Hale Aloha! The house is gorgeous, decorated beautifully, and the location right on the beach is amazing. The pictures and description capture the house perfectly. We had a group of 12 stay at the house for a wedding week and it could not have been any better. Our favorite part of the house were the views from the lanai and balcony and the beautiful back lawn, where we spent hours playing yard games and relaxing. Jude was responsive, professional and a wonderful host. We look forward to returning soon!
There isn’t much to say other then Judes property is absolutely stunning! 10/10 for everything! The beds were so comfortable, the location was fantastic. She was available for questions 24/7. The view and beach was amazing. The amenities the house had was perfect for our large group, everyone was appreciative of the extra gear available for adventuring around the island. We had out small intimate wedding here and it was a dream come true. I wouldn’t change it for the world! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jude!
Incredible home and views - there was plenty of space for our 10-person party. Jude was also a gracious and caring host. Her attention to detail helped make the experience flawless for us. Would definitely recommend.
My family of 10 (6 adults, 3 teens, and 1 child) stayed on Kauai for over a week, at three different houses, and Jude's house in Anahola was the best one for a family to stay at. It not only handled all 10 of us, comfortably, but what added even more to its allure was the fact that we were situated right on a beautiful (and safe!) beach! Beautiful and HUGE backyard, with a gate that led right onto the sand of the beach (which was literally only feet away!), and the surf was so tame that even our 8-year-old granddaughter could safely get in, without worry. And what GREAT snorkeling, too!
The house, itself, was beautifully and comfortably appointed, and the three upstairs bedrooms all offered incredible views of the beach below! Each bedroom was also air-conditioned, which was an obvious plus. We did wish that the bedrooms had TVs, however. They are not needed during the day (with so much to do on the island), but would be nice to have at night, when winding down. There are 2 TVs in other areas of the house, but it's always nice to have your own at the end of the day, so that there is no arguing over who gets to watch what. Lol!
One other minor drawback is that there is no Cell-Phone service in that particular area of the island, and so you have to rely on the WiFi that Jude offers her guests. And, with 10 people all using their phones simultaneously, it was sometimes difficult to send or receive texts and phone calls.
We also, unfortunately, missed out on those delicious Pineapples that we read so much about, but I guess we must have come when they weren't in season. Darn! :-)
But other than the missing Pineapples and the slightly below- average technology in the house, it truly is a Dream House, and really fits in with the natural beauty of Kauai.
Beautiful, large and comfortable, and right on a very secluded beach! Who could ask for more than that?
And when you add in what a sweetheart Jude is (as others have noted), I can't think of another house on the island that I would recommend over this one! If it is available when you come, GET IT! :-)
This was our second visit to the house and working with Jude, the Manager. As was the first, the second visit was equally superb. Beautiful house and location and Jude is as accomodating and attentive as you could hope for. Be sure to sign up for her pineapple farm tour!
This house was everything we could've dreamed of and more. As a new family of 3, it made our first family vacation seamless and perfect when vacationing with an infant. Playtime in the yard, clean surfaces for a new crawler, calm ocean water on a private beach- what more could you ask for!? The house was more than spacious enough for our extended family of 12 and made gathering together for dinners comfortable and enjoyable. The location was ideal for those in our group who wanted to venture into town for local food, bird watching or visiting local beaches, while others stayed behind and took advantage of the quiet space of the house and private beach. Jude was a sweetheart and was available to answer all of our questions promptly and thoroughly. We were eager to meet her due to the over the top pleasant experience we had with her and she was more than happy to come to the house and greet us with one of her home grown DELICIOUS pineapples. We hope to visit the beautiful island of Kauai again soon in this idyllic home.
We celebrated my wife’s and my retirements with our children, spouses and grand children. The house was a perfect setting and very. comfortable for all. Backyard beach access, proximity to other beaches, golf courses, the town of Kapaa and activities all were reasons for an amazing week. Mahalo to Jude and Sonia for their assistance. Aloha.
The home and Jude, the property manager, far exceeded any possible expectations. The home provided all possible comforts and then some. It was the most wonderful location with green grass leading right up to the beach. The house was absolutely beautiful and our big family felt right at home with plenty of space. And Jude, she is so wonderful. When a couple of our guests arrived early, without a vehicle, she took them to get some groceries. She was always helpful and available to answer questions. We might just have to make this visit a regular family occasion!
A gorgeous house in a gorgeous setting. Our family group of 11 people of all ages, from toddler to grandmother, loved this trip. The house is so spacious, very well maintained, great big kitchen that was better equipped than in most rental houses. Every bedroom has its own bathroom which is a key to family vacation harmony. Beautiful manicured grounds and yard, basketball net in the front, the beach and ocean right outside your back door, snorkel and beach gear, great outdoor furniture and hammocks for lounging, and so much space inside. Couldn't have been better. Jude the house manager was fantastic and communicative, and if you are lucky, she will bring you the best pineapple you've ever eaten.
