“An Awesome Place To Stay”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We loved our stay at Hale Ko'olau. The staff were very friendly & greeted us upon arrival. The accommodation is in a cluster of accommodation, it has the advantage of remaining private but also allowing you to mingle with other guests if you like. We stayed in early April & were lucky enough to see whales from our patio. The beach straight out the front is not the best for swimming as it is very rocky, however we managed to find a small sandy patch which was good enough for us & our kids & there is a sandy, calm beach a very short walk along the shore front. It is a very relaxing place to stay, we could not rave about it enough. The handyman Jeff was by far one of our favourite aspects of our stay, he was a wealth of local knowledge, the info you don't get in the tourists guides & nothing was too much trouble for him. There are beach toys on site & the heated spa was great. We are returning to Oahu in 2015 & a return to Hale Ko'olau is definately on our agenda. Thanks so much for a great stay ; )

Room Tip: Don't stay in the very front room (not sure what the name of it is), it's on the road front...

Aloha & Mahalo nui loa for your review.

We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and plan to return. Remember that repeat guests get a 10% discount on future stays. As for the roadside properties, they are considerably less than the direct beachfront properties and not everyone is blessed with the opportunity or ability to pay the extra amount for direct beachfront, however because they are on our beachfront property they get all the same access without having to cross the road. Many other homes on the North Shore advertised as "steps to the beach" are actually on the other side of Kamehameha Highway and people have to cross to the other side whereas with Hale Koolau you're already there to enjoy the beach.

Our family had a wonderful stay at the Hale Ko'olua. Our house was right on the beach and each morning my husband and I had coffee while watching the shimmering waves from our deck. The spa was right on the deck with an ocean view too, and it was great going in at night to look at the many stars twinkling in the sky. The house itself was spacious and clean, the kitchen was well stocked and we took advantage of having a fridge, filling it with delicious Hawaiian treats and leftovers from our restaurant outings.The location of the property was convenient to the small town of Hauula and there was a grocery store and a great Hawaiian food place called Papa Ole's within an easy walking distance.The owners were helpful and someone was available if you needed anything. Overall a great experience!!!!

Room Tip: Try to get and ocean front house if your funds permit-you can see and hear the ocean to your heart...

My husband and I stayed in the Sea Spray cabin and was more than pleasantly surprised. When they say it's "right on the ocean", they aren't kidding! The cabin was fantastically clean and had everything we needed. The owners are just awesome and so very helpful. We hope to return to Oahu and will be booking one of these cabins again. We highly recommend them.

Aloha & mahalo for your kind review. I often joke with people on the phone when I say that if you get any closer to the ocean you'll need a snorkel to sleep at night, LOL. We're so happy you enjoyed the Ehu Kai studio. Remember, repeat guests get an additional 10% discount which can be combined with other discounts/promotions.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the garden view and it was beautiful with a short walk to the beach. It felt like home the week we were there. The staff was very helpful and curteous. We look forward to staying here again. Mahalo

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the Nani Kai Hale and it was definitely as the title says "heavenly." We also got to meet the owners and they are awesome. Anyways, Nani Kai Hale's rooms were very clean, love love love the kitchen and how it opens up so you can hang out with friends while cooking etc. I so love the beds, the bathrooms and you didn't have to go anywhere for anything. You had everything in there. We got up early to peek at what view we had. We knew there was beach view but OMG, it was beautiful and just as I stated before, heavenly. I'll let the view tell you what you would get when staying here. Definitely returning to Hale the next time around.

My family and I stayed in the Nani Kai Hale Nov 2012 and it was amazing! The location of this getaway is perfect, right on the ocean front, you walk out the door and you have paradise! Enjoy the sunset or sunrise on the beautiful lanai (deck), or enjoy a walk down the beach. Relax in the jacuzzi and enjoy the sound of the waves crashing nearby. Nani Kai Hale is beautiful and luxurious. The decor is amazing, it is spacious, very clean, well-stocked and is fully equipped with all the modern amenities. There is plenty to do, great sightseeing and activities, not to mention it isn't that far from the city at all, however we were happy to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city and stay at Hale Ko'olau. Hale Ko'olau has the most amazing staff who offered excellent service. We plan to continue to visit Hawaii and stay at Hale Ko'olau because they offer the best!
