We just returned to Australia after a 3 week holiday in Kauai. We stayed at Hale Pohaku with 2 sets of grandparents, and 2 young families, each with three children. So in total we were a party of 14. The two young families stayed in the Manager's Residence, one set of grandparents stayed in the studio attached and the other set of grandparents stayed in the Rose Cottage. We could not have found better accommodation if we had TRIED!! It really did suit us to a tee. The manager's residence was so spacious and very much fulfilled our needs as such a large group. Both families had their own bathroom and the kitchen was fun to prepare meals in! My parents LOVED their space in the Rose Cottage and my partner's parents also really liked their space in the studio.
The pool was really terrific (sure it collected some leaves and flowers over time but that didn't bother us at all) and the short stroll to the beach was absolutely wonderful for the kids. Also just a short stroll to Brennecke's Broiler which has terrific ambience and mostly good food.
Being pretty laid back and not into fine linens and crockery, the lack of Egyptian sheets was not an issue. The sheets were soft and clean and lovely to sleep on and there were pots and pans of various shapes/sizes.
If we ever return to Kauai, I will not hesitate to stay here again. The only thing that could improve this experience for us would be a much more thorough cleaning job or at least access to some quality cleaning supplies.
Thanks Richard, you were easy to deal with and we loved that you didn't get in our space at all!! Aloha!
Nellie and crew.
