After our last stay at the Westin on Maui, my husband and I thought it would be good to rent a place with a kitchen so that we could make breakfast, etc. for our son, and have more of a "home" feel. We booked Cottage #1 at Hale Makai for 6/25-7/3. We almost left on 6/25, 6/29 (booked Sheraton in...

We are disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your time at Hale Makai Cottages. We truly pride ourselves on offering a location that honors the natural vibe of the island and is not a large resort, but is fully equipped for a pleasant and relaxing Hawaiian Vacation. We realize this may not be the ideal for everyone and it...

This place is the perfect combination of resort and private home! The grounds were so private and well maintained, you won't have random people walking through to get to the beach! No detail was left undone in the interiors. We stayed in #2 for our honeymoon the first week of November and we couldn't have been happier, 8 days just...

For our first trip to Kaua'i (after repeat visits to O'ahu and Maui over many years), I wanted to choose a hideaway cottage where we could feel the beauty and power of the island's nature with five senses. I was also looking for the comfort of high standard in which we would happily wake up to a fresh morning, enjoy...

I stayed at Cottage #5 with my husband, daughter and mother last week (August). The cottage is located at the back of the property, but the beach is easily accessible. It's outfitted with everything you need in the kitchen and has plenty of towels, nice linens, and some water stuff left from other people (and we left a mask!). My...

Stayed in the Summer of 2014. Fantastic, well appointed cottages offering privacy and romantic settings among lush greenery right on the beachfront. The beach has amazingly soft white sand and is virtually deserted, perfect for sunbathing. But it got a bit rocky for us about 15 feet into the water, so we also drove around to try out some other...

We stayed at Hale Makai three times before he new owners took over. They made many improvements, upgrading the bathrooms and kitchens beautifully and replanting the garden with native pants - it is very beautiful. HOWEVER, they seem to think that because they furnished the cottages with high end appliances, travertine flooring and luxury bathroom fixtures they can provide little...

My friend and I absolutely loved this property. It had the perfect amount of luxury without sacrificing the local island style and feel one hopes to immerse in when visiting the islands. If you prefer to stay in large, grand-scale resorts, disconnected from the local scene and residential areas, this isn't the property for your stay. This is a place...

If you pay this much per night for a place, it's reasonable to have certain expectations. Such as shampoo. No little bottles of shampoo. No store close by either. So be sure to bring some or you will be washing your hair with bar soap. We lost power the first night we stayed. Since there is no a/c, the room...

This place was so beautiful! From the pristine grounds to the inside of each cottage, it is clean and has plenty of furniture and amenities to enjoy the surroundings. There was a snafu the first night and our room was overbooked, but management took care of the situation very professionally and we ended up truly enjoying our little cottage in...

Our first baby is due in February and we figured that this would be our last opportunity for a vacation for a while.
