About half-way between the canyon lookout and mountain top/Waialeale, the "lodge" is part of a small complex that includes a museum of sorts. The food on offer was not impressive - non-descript sandwiches and soups/chili that might have started life inside of a can. So you can stop by and say you've been there, perhaps by a T-shirt, but it... More

I have lived on Kauai for twelve years and stayed in cabins years before. We booked this for my birthday and the only thing that was available was the duplex. We walked in to one of the worst places I have ever seen. EVER. Everything was moldy and dirty and That is saying A LOT coming from someone who has... More

We stayed in Ohe Ohe cabin 2 nights--and were lucky we were in that one because it actually has a stove. That helped us keep things warm the first night because of the one thing that has me taking a star off of the review. The cabins have wood burning stoves, and I had called ahead to let them know...

Picture an old cabin in a beautiful woodland forest. Quiet, except for the ever-present roosters. This is a wonderful place to stay on your way to kalalau lookout and Pihae trail. Then you don't have to drive up Wines canyon toad in the morning, and can be at the lookout bright and early, before the clouds come in and spoil... More

Who cares about the little shack of a restaurant with all the beauty that surrounds you here. Grab a sandwich or other nondescript munchie and get outside. This is not the place to labor over descriptions of picnic food. Eat half your sandwich and give the rest to the ever present chickens that are always looking for a handout. Then,... More

A bit basic: everything old or falling apart, but lovely walks to the coast. Na Pali, which is the backdrop for movies like Jurassic Park. A great walk. The lodge comes with most things for basic cooking etc. Unfortunately, all appliances and utensils are of the "no one would ever want to steal this" type. Beds, lights etc, well, depending... More

This could have been a great stay...30 years ago. Clean sheets, hot water, rustic cabin. Sheets did not fit beds, blankets did not keep out the cold, hot water came from a very questionable heater next to the stove in the kitchen. The wood stove was old and did not vent properly. The fire stayed lit only if you left... More

we returned to Kokee Cabins after 12 years of wonderful memories of a previous family trip there. We were excited by our memories of warm wood paneling, clean and welcoming interior. We found instead dirt everywhere, broken furniture, amazingly sparse and groddy utensils, a sink that leaked onto the floor, a water heater that needed constant attention, and NO ONE... More
