We've never been much for resort hotels or condo developments, preferring instead to put ourselves close to the culture of the places we visit, while still having many of the creature comforts we older folks have become accustomed to. For us, Hale Makai Cottages proved to be the perfect blend of comfort and culture; simple, yet furnished to anticipate almost...

My wife and I recently spent our honeymoon at Cottage #1 in early September. The weather was perfect and the location was amazing - so private that it feels remote but just a short ride from Hanalei and Princeville. While we mostly never left the property, we did take a few day trips to Tunnels Beach and the Kilauea Lighthouse....

We've just spent a small fortune to stay in #3 Orchid for two weeks, and I'd love to give Hale Makai 5 stars for all that's right about it. The cottage is so beautiful! Abundant screen doors and windows bring the breezes in -- it's like living in a luxurious porch right on the beach. Views everywhere are spectacular, and...

My wife and I stayed in cottage #2 for our honeymoon. It was simply amazing. We ate our meals on the back deck which is literally 15 feet from the ocean. Our bedroom had a sliding door out to the deck and we fell asleep to the sound of the ocean every night and awoke to the sun rising over...

Staying at this property was the best decision we made for our honeymoon! We stayed in the Plumeria cottage and it was just amazing. The kitchen and appliances were top of the line and the decor was nice as well, but it was the breathtaking view of the beaches and landscape that really made the stay so special! These cottages...

Location, location, location! The beautiful North Shore of Kauai offers it all. The beachfront cottages at Hale Makai are perfectly located. These five cottages are situated on a secluded 2 acre piece of property. Each one offers its own privacy. We were fortunate to stay in cottage 3 which is located directly in front of the ocean. Everything about the...

Hale Makai Cottages was the perfect place to get away from the crowds and enjoy Kauai what it got famous for in the first place: its nature's beauty. The property's surroundings are magical, heaven must be like this. A world away from the tourist crowds and noise, literally just a few steps away from the private, golden sand beach, this...

Modern, scandanavian, clean bright decor. Placed on the ocean with private access to Ha'ena shoreline. You walk from you lanai to the sand in seconds. Tight parking spots, one for each car on dirt road off the main. Owners very nice. Hale are not raised off ground on stilts like neighboring properties. Worth the prices. Cottage 3 our favorite. Really...

This was my third trip to Kauai and the best thus far. The cottage was a big part of it. The fact that we did not have to get in the car to go to some of the most amazing beaches on the North shore was key to our relaxation. You can spend time right out front of the cottage...

For anyone on the business travel circuit--long airport hangtime, corporate hotels, airconditioning, expensive dinners at acclaimed restaurants--get ready for something a little more exotic, warm, and sweet all at the same time. Hale Makai is tucked under palms on a lovely lawn stretching toward a private beach. Kauai's famous rock formations line the skyline behind you. Lush waves and brilliant...
