Clean, organized, great kitchen and eating area! There was a family sitting area, a TV area, an eating area, relaxing huge lanais, a ping pong area, some fun beach items, and a separate cottage for the younger adults, even a beautiful floral arrangement!

Rating Details: The property manager was somewhat unhelpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The rental home was great. Everyone had room to spread out and relax. Surprised that the plates in the kitchen were not to be used in the microwave.Garden Island Rentals was non responsive to me, Bev Cook, the listed renter. We used my daughter's phone to book the reservation, so she received all the information. Three times I asked for it to be changed, and it never happened. Also asked for additional information about the house, and never received an answer. I was the paying hostess for this accommodation, my credit card was used, but could never get anyone to remove Karen Ray, and change to Bev Cook. Frustrating!It's a good thing a stepladder was available for access to the kitchen cabinets, most of us could not reach the 3rd and 4th shelves. All in all, it was a wonderful home and a restful stay. Would recommend this property to large familys/groups.

There were 12 of us staying in this spacious house! Two bedrooms in the carriage house and four bedrooms in the main house. The best part is: every bedroom has its own attached bathroom! The top floor is an open floor plan with huge seating areas and the most beautiful lanai! There’s a nice walking path down to Poipu Beach with turtles, monk seals and the best hot dog stand ever! It’s also really close to a couple beaches that are perfect for babies and toddlers. I had excellent text communication with the property managers, who were always very timely and helpful.

Fantastic house...proved to be the perfect base for a family celebration. We didn't want to leave....when it was tome to return to the real world :-)

Came for a wedding and 15 of us stayed here. It was amazing. Everything they said it would be and more. For multiple families, it is perfect because every room has its own bathroom plus a bathroom upstairs for common area. View from the deck is mountains and the ocean. Location to Poipu beach was awesome!

My family absolutely loved staying at Hale Hapuna! It was centrally located, so that we could take a leisurely walk to Poipu Beach. The home was very spacious, and we appreciated that each bedroom had its own bathroom. Mostly, though, we loved taking in the view and island breezes from the second floor!

The first time was for our group of 6 adults and collectively, we have since added three kids, ages 6, 8, and 12. Hale Hapuna is the perfect vacation home with enough room for everyone. It's walking distance to the beaches and a few minutes drive to shops. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend!

Beautiful house on the island with so much space and a great spot for our family and friends vacation. Overall, it was exactly what was in the listing except one bedroom was shown to have three beds, but instead only had two. We ended up not needing it, but it was misleading. Really appreciated the thorough instructions in the house and the communication from the property management. Would definitely stay again and would recommend this house. It’s STUNNING!

There were plenty of beach towels/ chairs, and the kitchen was fully packed with essentials. Weather was a little warm, so wish there was AC in the guest cottage but aside from that, the house was prefect for our family reunion. Great location close to beach. Would definitely stay there again. Host/ Management was very responsive!

I rented this as a surprise birthday present for my wife and invited 8 friends to stay with us. The home itself was beautiful, the solo rooms were luxurious and the larger rooms had plenty of room for lots of people and each had their own bathroom. The house was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space and seating. It was even nicer than I was expecting and the view was unreal. Photos don’t do it justice, the view was breathtaking. Amazing ocean views but the mountains we impossible to take your eyes off. The weather rolling in and out and the different shades of green were electric. There is absolutely nothing blocking your view and the third story wrap around lanai gives you lots of perspectives. You could honestly never leave the place and have a beautiful trip. The walk to Poipu beach was about 10 minutes straight down the hill. There were lots of beach supplies at the house too including chairs and umbrellas. It was everything we needed and more. We all talked about coming back in future years as our families grow. There is no other place I would rather stay.

The view from the deck was absolutely gorgeous... the beautiful, lush mountains and the evening sunset. I am originally from Kauai, and I had forgotten this beauty! Enjoyed it every day. There were only 2 things that needed repair. I was impressed with the immediate response in correcting problem. Outstanding! Thank you!

The house is great for a group, with bedrooms below and a spacious common area above. We spent a lot of time on the deep covered deck which has beautiful views, plentiful seating and tables and shady spots. It is walking distance to Brennecke's beach and Poipu Beach. Our teenagers could watch TV without disturbing others on the deck or at the other couch seating area. The dining table easily held all 11 people in our group. It was a great location!

The family room and dining room were perfect for family gatherings and the upper wrap around deck had gorgeous views for all to enjoy! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare and serve meals and dual dishwashers came in handy! Having lawn chairs, snorkel gear and beach towels provided was a nice convenience and the grandkids had a blast playing ping pong games! The sofa cushions throughout the home and on the deck lounge chairs could use refreshing would be my only suggestion for improvement.

We cooked almost all our meals, spent lots of time on the deck playing cards and enjoying the view, walked to nearby beaches daily. A stunningly beautiful house in a fabulous location.My only criticisms: stove top and pans are not great (but there's an electric counter-top griddle that works very well). Oven and BBQ are great. The furniture upholstery is a bit aged and stained, but overall the house was very clean and well maintained.

This was a long planned trip to Kauai, 3 families, 5 kids, 11 people total and the house was just perfect! It is planned to be comfortable for kids and adults. The kids were aged 2,7,9,11 and 14 and loved it. There was room for them to play, and beach amenities galore were supplied: beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, sand toys and umbrellas! And a ping pong table! The kitchen is equipped with all you will need. The only thing we missed was a pair of scissors! The cottage was perfect for us, the grandparents. The view is spectacular! A short walk to the beach. It made for a most memorable family time. It's worth every penny.

We loved it except their weren't enough extra sheets and blankets. They had chairs for the beach, bikes, and sand toys.... that was great. The kids loved it and it was only a 5 minute walk to two beaches. It was clean!

It had lots of space to relax, an expansive view of the mountains and ocean, and was a short 10-minute walk to great beaches for kid playing, snorkeling, and boogie boarding. There were so many nice touches that made our stay easier. The garage showers for post-beach cleanup were great. The two houses for quiet nap times were very convenient. There was even a great selection of beach stuff for us to borrow - beach towels, chairs, shade umbrellas, sand toys, and a couple assorted snorkel masks and swim fins! The management company sent a couple reminder texts throughout the week, and were easily available via text when I had a question. It's just a well-stocked house, a great space, and a perfect location.

Family group of 15. This home worked wonderfully for our large group. The kitchen was well stocked with every utensil imaginable. The large living area with multiple seating areas worked wonderfully for our large group interaction. There was a good supply of beach equipment that we utilized. It was just a short walk down to the beach. Our only issue was the Wi-Fi was not working when we arrived and it took a couple of days for them to figure out what was wrong.

There were a couple minor issues with the kitchen sink and dryer but the management company was awesome trying to fix the issue and it was just a small inconvenience and did not impact our fun time. The home was spotless when we arrived and that is very important to me. One of the best things about the house besides the view from the balcony was the beach chairs and towels provided as we had a big party and there was plenty for everyone and great quality. The kitchen had everything we needed and was fully stocked with dishes, glasses, utensils and good quality. It was my birthday and the day we arrived the rental company left me a beautiful bouquet of island flowers and a birthday card. So sweet! Moving forward I will try to VRBO again from the rental company as they are wonderful to work with.Carolyn from Az
