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...

We chose Kauai for our honeymoon because of the exotic location, the beaches and the snorkeling. We were not disappointed. The Hale Makai Cottages served as an excellent jumping off point for some wonderful locations on the North Shore. The weather was wonderful: a constant gentle breeze and occasional rain every day lasting from a few minutes to several hours....

I chose to stay at the Hale Makai cottages because of location which was just footsteps to the beach. Being a local resident on the island of Oahu, I was looking to get away from the tourist-like crowds & hotels. This was prime spot and absolutely gorgeous! The landscaping was ever so green with all the privacy one needs to...

My wife and I went to Kaua'i for the first time, and being from a big city, we were looking for a place that was quiet, romantic, and had good access to the island's outdoor opportunities. Hale Makai met these requirements and then some. We stayed in cottage #3, which has nice beach views. Cottage #2 is also almost directly...

If you're looking for your own rental home on the beach on Kauai's northshore, Hale Makai Cottages is the place for you. My husband and I stayed in Cottage #3 for five days. Cottages 3 and 2 are oceanfront with gorgeous views. We could see the sun rising over the east-side Hanalei Bay mountains. The location is terrific, between Hanalei...

“During hot months maybe choose a different cottage. This one didn't get enough breeze to cool the second bedroom.”

“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.”
