I'm overjoyed that my wife and I chose Hale Puka 'Ana as our place to stay on the beautiful island of Kauai. Located on the much more laid-back Western side of the island, you won't see fancy hotels or strip malls for miles. It gives you a spot to steer clear of the touristy spots and be a great "home base" for a trip to Waimea Canyon and Polihale Beach. You will need to drive to locations, but for someone who wanted a relaxing vacation, even just the thought of staying in congested Poipu gives me a headache.
Patrick & Jules are wonderful hosts and Koa is the most well-behaved boxer we've ever met! You do share a house with a family, and that family includes an adorable daughter, so you will hear her/them from time to time above you. It was never disruptive nor did it hamper the great experience.
We stayed in the Ali'i Suite, which ended up surpassing my expectations. It's on the lower level with some seating right outside a sliding door along with a private entrance. Zero complaints about the bed, it has a little fridge for some "golden aloha" and the dual shower heads were a welcome surprise! Furnishings were nice and it was clean.
Speaking directly to the latest review from Donald E: yes, at Hale Puka Ana you are located near a road. I'll trade the amazing sunsets and ability to hear the waves hit the rocks for a little bit of road noise. The road noise does come from a "highway" but it's only a highway by name: the speed limit is 35 MPH at that stretch. I would hardly call the road noise an "assault" and it becomes an afterthought after about 8pm. It never woke me up.
What Patrick & Jules offer, a bed & breakfast in the cozy part of Kauai with beautiful sunset views, is exactly what you get. A nice bed in a loving home and delicious breakfast in the morning (we were able to see spouts from whales eating breakfast - how cool is that?). I already miss the french toast...
