I have stayed at this B & B more than once over the years and have also had friends stay here. The owner is very friendly, helpful, and provides any information necessary. The home is expansive, both upstairs and downstairs [large, spacious studio]. The home sits in a gorgeous community within the Kalaheo hills and is located at a dead...

Not our first time in Kauai but last time at Hale Ikena Nui. Quickly speaking, the problem is it's noisy with animals (dog barks a lot), the owner upstairs who is up SUPER EARLY - much stomping. Thin callings and thin bathroom doors. Cows and donkeys next door. Sort of like a farm. And also not exactly friendly vibe. Really...

I have had a vacation/rental bed and breakfast on Kauai since 1995. I have always enjoyed having people visit me from all over the world and have always had a positive experience. I have repeat guests who have stayed with me for years and they continue to book yearly. My home is in a very quiet neighborhood on a small...

This is a great place to stay, excellent value for money, very comfortable and has great views overlooking the pacific. The owner, Patti, is really nice and bear the dog is adorable, and I was made to feel at home. It provides great accessibility for the island, especially for the South and West. I stayed here as it was close...

It's located in a quiet and scenic neighborhood. Our host invited us upstairs for dinner and from her patio is an amazing ocean view. She is very welcoming and provided a comfortable and relaxing environment. I am eager to return and would recommend this B&B for anyone.

What a lovely stay we had at Patti’s house, located at the end of a quiet street, with a large terrace from where we can see the ocean. Delicious papaya at breakfast, lovely welcoming and discrete host, and a large cozy bedroom. If we go back to Hawaii we will certainly go to Hale Ikena Nui again. Emy and Chris...

My family and I recently stayed several nights at Patti Pantone's home and it was nicer and more spacious than we expected and the surrounding neighborhood is partly open space pasture. It is beautiful. Her dog Bear is an absolute delight. She had some of her neighbors over for happy hour one night and we really appreciated getting a local's...

We've never written a review and it saddens us to be so negative but this is a shockingly poor value place to stay. We're from Montreal and have traveled extensively for many years. There are multiple problems with Patti's residence. Briefly: 1) Very Noisy. Her dog barks all the time (incl. early morning/late at nite). Patti does nothing to stop...

I only stayed one night at Patti's house, as I was on Kauai for a short work trip. But I had a great experience staying in her main-floor guest room. I arrived later in the evening pretty tired after a long day of work and travel, and Patti was very accommodating, made me feel at home and didn't mind that...

I felt like we were visiting a relative. The home had a large space with floor to ceiling windows out to the deck so the kitchen, dining, and living areas all had great views down to the ocean. We stayed in a nice guest bedroom with a private bathroom (only problem was low water pressure in the shower), were served...

We stayed at this place in May and it was lovely. The pictures do no justice to the place. We were welcomed by the frndliest dog Bear and his owner Ms Patti Pantone who made our stay even more comfortable. We would relax on the wide airy lanai, enjoying distant views of the ocean. Breakfast was good and the rooms...
