Stayed in the Summer of 2014. Fantastic, well appointed cottages offering privacy and romantic settings among lush greenery right on the beachfront. The beach has amazingly soft white sand and is virtually deserted, perfect for sunbathing. But it got a bit rocky for us about 15 feet into the water, so we also drove around to try out some other...

We stayed at Hale Makai three times before he new owners took over. They made many improvements, upgrading the bathrooms and kitchens beautifully and replanting the garden with native pants - it is very beautiful. HOWEVER, they seem to think that because they furnished the cottages with high end appliances, travertine flooring and luxury bathroom fixtures they can provide little...

My friend and I absolutely loved this property. It had the perfect amount of luxury without sacrificing the local island style and feel one hopes to immerse in when visiting the islands. If you prefer to stay in large, grand-scale resorts, disconnected from the local scene and residential areas, this isn't the property for your stay. This is a place...

If you pay this much per night for a place, it's reasonable to have certain expectations. Such as shampoo. No little bottles of shampoo. No store close by either. So be sure to bring some or you will be washing your hair with bar soap. We lost power the first night we stayed. Since there is no a/c, the room...

We do send out Arrival Instructions to all our guest explaining the items we provide and the items guests will need to bring with them.

This place was so beautiful! From the pristine grounds to the inside of each cottage, it is clean and has plenty of furniture and amenities to enjoy the surroundings. There was a snafu the first night and our room was overbooked, but management took care of the situation very professionally and we ended up truly enjoying our little cottage in...

Our first baby is due in February and we figured that this would be our last opportunity for a vacation for a while. We booked a last minute stay at Hale Makai Cottages mid November and are so glad that we chose this spot! The beach was right there. We loved making most of our meals in the fully equipped...

My husband and I were looking for the ultimate non-resort Hawaiian experience and certainly found it at Hale Makai. We stayed in cottage #4 in November 2014 and although the weather was not what we usually encounter in Hawaii we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottages are remarkably clean, impeccably decorated, and thankfully quiet and remote. We would wholeheartedly recommend...

We stayed at Cottage #1 from June 20 to June 27. We cannot come up with a single complaint about the stay. The cottage was very nice. We bought our groceries at various stores and simply relaxed and enjoyed the never ending breeze. We rented a car, of course, and saw the entire island. We also took a boat excursion...

If you are looking for a large resort with lots of kids running around, blasting music at the pool and multiple bars where you can do shooters every night, this isn't the place for you. However, If you are looking for a beautiful slice of paradise, with only the noise of the surf to lull you to sleep, this is...

Ideal location.. Postcard perfect! Right on the beach. Very private. We stayed a week and had the most relaxing, peaceful time. The property is only a 5 minute drive from Hanalei. Cottages have everything you could possibly need. For sure we'll be back again to visit! Mahalo to our friends at Hale Makai!

“All cottages are steps from the beach but #1, #2, & #3 are closest (I think). Waves on the North Shore are pretty large in the winter and swimming is generally not recommended at that time.”
