This place is the perfect combination of resort and private home! The grounds were so private and well maintained, you won't have random people walking through to get to the beach! No detail was left undone in the interiors. We stayed in #2 for our honeymoon the first week of November and we couldn't have been happier, 8 days just... More

For our first trip to Kaua'i (after repeat visits to O'ahu and Maui over many years), I wanted to choose a hideaway cottage where we could feel the beauty and power of the island's nature with five senses. I was also looking for the comfort of high standard in which we would happily wake up to a fresh morning, enjoy... More

I stayed at Cottage #5 with my husband, daughter and mother last week (August). The cottage is located at the back of the property, but the beach is easily accessible. It's outfitted with everything you need in the kitchen and has plenty of towels, nice linens, and some water stuff left from other people (and we left a mask!). My... More

Stayed in the Summer of 2014. Fantastic, well appointed cottages offering privacy and romantic settings among lush greenery right on the beachfront. The beach has amazingly soft white sand and is virtually deserted, perfect for sunbathing. But it got a bit rocky for us about 15 feet into the water, so we also drove around to try out some other...

We stayed at Hale Makai three times before he new owners took over. They made many improvements, upgrading the bathrooms and kitchens beautifully and replanting the garden with native pants - it is very beautiful. HOWEVER, they seem to think that because they furnished the cottages with high end appliances, travertine flooring and luxury bathroom fixtures they can provide little... More

My friend and I absolutely loved this property. It had the perfect amount of luxury without sacrificing the local island style and feel one hopes to immerse in when visiting the islands. If you prefer to stay in large, grand-scale resorts, disconnected from the local scene and residential areas, this isn't the property for your stay. This is a place... More

If you pay this much per night for a place, it's reasonable to have certain expectations. Such as shampoo. No little bottles of shampoo. No store close by either. So be sure to bring some or you will be washing your hair with bar soap. We lost power the first night we stayed. Since there is no a/c, the room... More

This place was so beautiful! From the pristine grounds to the inside of each cottage, it is clean and has plenty of furniture and amenities to enjoy the surroundings. There was a snafu the first night and our room was overbooked, but management took care of the situation very professionally and we ended up truly enjoying our little cottage in... More

Our first baby is due in February and we figured that this would be our last opportunity for a vacation for a while. We booked a last minute stay at Hale Makai Cottages mid November and are so glad that we chose this spot! The beach was right there. We loved making most of our meals in the fully equipped... More

My husband and I were looking for the ultimate non-resort Hawaiian experience and certainly found it at Hale Makai. We stayed in cottage #4 in November 2014 and although the weather was not what we usually encounter in Hawaii we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottages are remarkably clean, impeccably decorated, and thankfully quiet and remote. We would wholeheartedly recommend... More
