This location is for nature lovers! It's an experience you will not regret if you love nature and want to experience Hawaii! I have read reviews and yes the night can be a little warm even with the cross breeze but it's an amazing experience to be in Hawaii's natural element as well. I loved hearing the still peaceful nights.... More

We stayed at Ben and Cathy's place in early February. Ben and Cathy are excellent hosts. It was an ideal base for visiting both the north and south shores of Kauai. We had a very clean, private and comfortable room overlooking the serene Makaleha mountains. The home also offers a very comfortable, large and well-equipped common area that is shared... More

Such an amazing week we just spent in beautiful Kaua'i-- made all the more enjoyable with this perfect home away from home. Already missing my mornings spent sipping tea on the porch while taking in the beauty of the Makaleha mountains. After a little rain, waterfalls are visible flowing down the cliff side. Incredible!! Comfortable room, relaxed atmosphere-- great common... More

My wife and I wanted to have a local feel to our low budget Hawaiian vacation. Makaleha Bed and Coffee proved to be exactly what we needed! I say "low budget", but this felt more like an extravagant holiday in Cathy and Ben's home. There's a completely separate entrance for the two available rooms with an amazing amount of common...

This was our first time to Kauai and this was ideal for our stay. We had family staying on the south side of the island, and this location allowed us to tour the north, south, east, and west and still visit with family on the south side of the island in the evening. Depending upon the type of traveler you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights here. We met both Cathy and Ben who were very available if you needed them but never intrusive. (They live in the main house which is part of, but separate from - if that makes sense - the guest accommodations) Great hosts. There is a very large downstairs area which has the kitchen and...

We thought that the grounds and other houses on the street were beautiful. We appreciated the laundry facilities and used them to clean our towels and other sweaty clothes. When we arrived the whole place was very dark. We wrote the owners and suggested that some motion sensor lights at the garage, the patio and outside the units would be... More

We had both rooms that are located up the stairs. We were unable to meet the owners as they were out of town but we had a pleasant stay. The rooms were clean and were neatly decaorated. There was also a dressing to store clothes which was good since the rooms aren't that big. Nevertheless, there are a lot of... More

My husband and I stayed at the Makaleha Bed & Coffee for 6 nights in summer 2014. After comparing what it would have cost to stay at a bigger hotel/resort, and then looking the condition of available rentals through VRBO or AirBnB, we chose the Makaleha B&C for it's sleeker/modern/very clean look, for its very reasonable rate of $100/night, and...
