We stayed in the Mauka room at Makaleha Bed & Coffee in late May, 2015. Everything about this place was wonderful, but we loved the room, the lanai outside the lunge, and the view the best. An easy drive to Kapa'a and an excellent base for exploring the island. Ben and Cathy were very helpful and provided tons of useful... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Makaleha last April and we could not have had a better time. The view out of the back of the house is so lush and beautiful, and the house itself was perfectly set up for a non-intrusive, yet welcoming stay. But by far the best part of the property was the hosts. Cathy and... More

Great place with a beautiful view of the mountains with waterfalls in the distance. Very convenient location to explore the whole island (inland a couple of miles from Kapaa) and very reasonably priced. The young couple Ben & Cathy made us feel right at home & mostly left us alone so that we could enjoy the quiet & peacefulness of... More

Based on my 4 years old experience we had no doubt where to stay on Kauai for our next trip. We even adjusted the originally planned dates to be able to stay at Makaleha, because it was worth it. This time there were 4 of us and again it was unforgettable experience. I would repeat myself writing that the place... More

Cathy and Ben were such gracious hosts. They were so friendly and welcoming, and their helpful hints and fun suggestions were greatly appreciated! The house itself was in a nice, neighborhood set apart from the slightly busier downtown area, allowing for a quiet, relaxing atmosphere (yet close enough for a quick drive down to the beach). The two guest rooms... More

Cathy and Ben are fantastic hosts and my wife, friends and I were overjoyed to share Makaleha B&C with them. Kauai was my favorite out of all the islands we visited - laid back, friendly, not overly developed or crammed with huge hotels. Kapa'a is a super cool town too - music and food festivals every month, lots of beaches,... More

For us it was the perfect place to stay on the amazing island of Kauai. Thanks to the absolutely great hosts for sharing this beautiful place. We really loved our stay. The surroundings, the view, the nature with its sounds, the very nice and comfy room, the possibility to use the common area ... We hope we will be able... More

Stayed here for 5 nights with my wife in August. We stayed in a single room which was tastefully decorated and very cozy and homey. The kitchen and spacious downstairs area kept us fueled up and ready to go. Location is a great jump-off to any part of the island, and the owners were very communicative and gracious. We were...

A quiet country home, reasonably priced, a spacious downstairs commons area, everything you need to cook meals and nice owners. Kapaa makes a great base for hiking and snorkeling, especially when the weather and surf are changeable and you need to move from northern beaches to those on the east or south or vice versa. We spent nine nights here... More

Our kids (age 6 and 3) felt instantly at home and we felt instantly relaxed. The rooms and beds are comfortable, but the best thing about Makaleha's is the location and common areas. We enjoyed waterfall and rainbows everyday from the patio and games or movies every night in the common room with extra comfy couches, many board games and... More
