We stayed at Cottage #1 from June 20 to June 27. We cannot come up with a single complaint about the stay. The cottage was very nice. We bought our groceries at various stores and simply relaxed and enjoyed the never ending breeze. We rented a car, of course, and saw the entire island. We also took a boat excursion... More

If you are looking for a large resort with lots of kids running around, blasting music at the pool and multiple bars where you can do shooters every night, this isn't the place for you. However, If you are looking for a beautiful slice of paradise, with only the noise of the surf to lull you to sleep, this is... More

Ideal location.. Postcard perfect! Right on the beach. Very private. We stayed a week and had the most relaxing, peaceful time. The property is only a 5 minute drive from Hanalei. Cottages have everything you could possibly need. For sure we'll be back again to visit! Mahalo to our friends at Hale Makai!

We stayed here for five nights the third week of October, 2013. I have to say we enjoyed our time immensely. Our cottage was the "Orchid" Unit 03 which I thought had the best location on the property. It was a lovely cottage with nice appointments. We slept very well each night and was welcomed with a "WOW" sunrise each... More

My husband and i stayed in cottage #1 this week and its been great. The cottage is nicely decorated, has high-quality kitchen appliances and a high-end bathroom. The best part is that you can hear the ocean at night when you sleep! So relaxing. Also it rains a lot in November, so that just added to the relaxing sounds... The... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4-nights in mid-October for the final portion of our honeymoon. We both wished we had skipped Oahu and the Big Island and just stayed here the whole time! We spent several mornings and evenings snorkeling around the beach watching the unicorn fish come in to get cleaned by the cleaner fish and the... More

We stayed at the Hale Makai cottages for 3 nights after we got married on Kauai. We chose the cottages based on excellent reviews on tripadvisor. What a mistake. From the moment we checked in, it was very awkward. Our cottage was not ready until 4pm (check-in time is advertised as 3pm), so we sat outside the cottage for an... More

This review is essentially based on a misunderstanding. I believe the great anger of the reviewer about what he believed to be a made-up claim colored his views. Until we wrote him that we had to replace a large glass table top, his wife and he seemed to be quite happy and content at the cottages. There was, indeed, a... More

My wife and I stayed at Hale Makai Cottages after reading all the wonderful reviews. The experience did not meet our expectations, and we would not return. The mattress was uncomfortable, and worse, the sheets and towels smelled musty and unclean. Privacy and noise were also an issue, as guests walking by could easily see into our cottage. Overall we...

The L.A. reviewer (dasherDelrey) has not stayed at our cottages in April 2013, as claimed, or at any other time (our records go back to 2000, when we acquired the property). He appears to parrot what his friend/SoCal neighbor Sherri K told him to write. Particularly undeserved is his false claim of sub-standard cleanliness, because the cleaning service, an independent...

This property is beautiful and so peaceful! My husband and I came here after a corporate function on Lanai and loved the fact that we didn't have to interact with anyone for our entire stay. If you're looking for peace and quiet, then this is definitely the place for you. The backyard has sweeping views of the mountains, while the... More
