Hale O'kale, located in Hanalei, is perfectly positioned between Hanalei Bay/Beach and the town/commercial center (Town) of Hanalei (Restaurants, shopping, groceries, tours, activities, etc.). Every day we were able to walk to Hanalei Bay/Beach/Pier and into town. The distances from Hale O'kale to closest Hanalei Beach access (Where we enjoyed the calm waters of Hanalei Bay and lounged on the beach, day and night) - .1 miles, to Hanalei Pier (Where we had the BEST Carne Asada tacos, from Pat's Taqueria "Taco Truck" multiple days), - .8 miles, to Hanalei's commercial center (We shopped, we rented gear, we overate, and enjoyed drinks from several wonderful businesses) - .3, to Kayak Hanalei (Were we rented Stand Paddle Boards that we could launch right from their dock, with access to the Hanalei River and Hanalei Bay) - .5 miles, and to Hanalei Dolphin Fish Market (Fresh Local Fish) - .6 miles. Hale O'kale is a very nice home with a large covered deck area with spectacular views of the mountains and waterfalls to the west and south. Bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms large, including an outdoor shower w/ hot water. The street does have light traffic, but never enough to really notice. This location allowed us to enjoy all that Kauai's North Shore has to offer without long drive times. Kalalau Trail (We hiked Ke’e Beach to Hanakapi’ai Falls, Amazing), Tunnels (We snorkeled and WALKED with several turtles in thigh deep water, again Amazing), Queens Bath (Cliff jumping and swam with over 20 turtles!), Okolehao Trail (Beautiful views, brutal climb, but worth it), etc. Hale O'kale offered all of this and more at a remarkable value. We have traveled to Hawaii several times (Kauai, Maui, Oahu, & Hawaii) and this trip was the best of all! Much due to where we stayed, Hale O'kale/Hanalei. This was our second experience with Parrish Collection Kauai. In both we found Parrish Collection Kauai very easy to deal with. Their website allowed us to review/preview their different properties with ease, and the homes were just as presented. Their inventory of vacation rentals on Kauai is unique by comparison to all the other companies we researched. Easy to reserve, friendly and professional staff. All PERFECT for our Group consisting of 7 adult (28 - 49) family members (Siblings, Spouses, Niece, and Nephew). We will return to Hanalei! We will stay at Hale O'kale again! We will rent from Parrish Collection Kauai again! Simply excellent!
