Kauai Pacific Real Estate Guest Reviews

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for our wonderful stay at Pali Ke Kua 222. Communication with you and staff was excellent for instructions, questions, payment etc.. Our stay at Pali Ke Kua 222 exceeded our expectations, Tastefully decorated, beautifully remodeled, comfortable beds, kitchen and bathrooms well stocked, etc. We have been to the other islands, but keep coming back to Kauai in my opinion it is the most beautiful, and the view from this unit is why we will be back. You don't have to go anywhere else other than the Lanai to enjoy some of Kauai's most spectacular scenery. We did however explore the rest of the island during our stay in Kauai. To sum it up the grounds are beautiful, room clean and comfortable, easy access to the beach although a little steep but no problem, and the view absolutely fantastic.
Emmalani Court 413: This boutique condo stands heads & shoulders above neighboring island rentals. To begin, the complex is smaller than most so no crowds of tourists milling about. The grounds are lush, well maintained, and offer covered parking, a rarity on the north shore. The unit itself offers upscale furnishings and shows the owners care and concern for guest comfort in every nook & cranny...their DVD collection of movies filmed exclusively on Kauai is one of a kind. Add Netflix for a cozy evening at home or restaurants and beach paths within walking distance. Couple this with "His" and "Her" bathrooms, king size bed, air conditioning, pool & jacuzzi steps away, and blissful peace & quiet only broken by the songs of tropical birds....and you have the vacation of a lifetime. 4/26/16
Our stay at Pali Ke Kua couldn't have been a better experience. The property was magnificent and unit 113 was perfect. The decor was tasteful, modern, and clean. Everything functioned perfectly from the washer dryer, to the microwave. The shelves were stocked with all the utensils we could use and the setting on the cliffs over looking Hana lei Bay is breath taking. After a few days we forgot about time and wished the previous week spent in Maui would have been spent here. We've never stayed anywhere we enjoyed more. We will be back! Mahalo to Kauai Pacific Real Estate

"My wife Katie and I enjoyed our stay at Pali Ke Kua 224 very much and found it clean and comfortable and we really looked forward to coming back to it at the end of our day. The unit was cool through-out the day and night and the beds were extremely comfortable. The Condo was complete with everything we could possibly need and of course the view from the Lanai was breathtaking to say the least. Something very appreciated by both my wife and myself was the courteous attention given to us by Kauai Pacific Real Estate with regards to handling all of the details and providing timely and comprehensive information about our travel. Absolutely nothing was left for guess work. All in all, a real great deal and we're looking forward to doing business with them again." Jim & Katie (November 2016)
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely suite. A highlight was looking at the spectacular view of Hanalei Bay, constantly shifting with changes in weather and time of day. The unit was quiet and well taken care of. The separate spacious second bedroom worked really well for our teenage son and his friend to have their own space to hang out, with their own private entrance. The staff provided excellent service, including concierge facilitation in booking activities and ready answers from the hotel desk for questions we had during our stay. The grounds are lovely and well-maintained. We had friends visit us for dinner who were staying in Poipu, and they kept saying "Wow!' as they admired the view and accommodations.
We really enjoyed our stay at HBR! It was a perfect location with a beautiful view. Our condo was in wonderful spot to see the sunrise and sunset everyday. Princeville is a gorgeous part of the island and we felt very secluded and like we had the area to ourselves. We really had a great time at the pool and appreciated the Mai Tai Monday happy hour!! Thank you!
My family stayed at Hale Makamaka for a week-long vacation in Kauai. The house was absolutely wonderful! Located in a beautiful, serene neighborhood with fantastic views of the towering jungle mountains off the lanai; it’s a convenient walking distance from a beach, a shopping center and a community park and a short drive from all the best beaches and sites on the north side. It comes loaded with those extra special touches that make it instantly home – the kids (we brought five, ranging from 7 to 14 years) made immediate good use of the bikes and absolutely loved the ping-pong table in the garage. We borrowed the beach equipment nearly every day. In the evenings after the kids were in bed from a long day of playing hard, my wife and I enjoyed winding down to one of the hundreds of movies in the home. The modern appliances, beautiful decorating, and comfortable atmosphere of the home just helped enhance the feeling of being on an exotic vacation. We certainly didn’t mind all the space either, the kids got to spread out and have their own rooms where they wanted to, and we didn’t feel like someone was underfoot the entire vacation. Great location, and a great home. Kauai Pacific Real Estate was awesome to work with. At one point we discovered our bbq had run out of gas, and they had someone run another tank over immediately. We couldn’t have been more pleased! 10/10 will do it again for our next trip – which the kids are already asking about

We recently rented a 3 bedroom unit on Kauai for 3 weeks, spending time with children and grandchildren from far away. It was the best time spent ever! There were some issues with our unit that were resolved immediately and I cannot thank the staff enough to help ensure our family time was not ruined. We will book through Kauai Pacific whenever we return to Kauai. Mahalo from the Gere Family

We just wanted to thank you for the best vacation ever! The condo was terrific and Kauai was a dream. We can't wait until our next visit!
Pu’u Poa #308 is such a special place. It is clear to me that the owner of the condo loves this place and has taken such pride in making it special for all who are lucky enough to stay in their Kauain Oasis. It is so artfully decorated and well-appointed I would go so far is to say that it is the best rental property we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many rental properties. There was NOTHING that was not thought of, every detail was considered. From the comfortable, but absolutely beautiful décor to the detail that was put into providing everything a renter would need to have an amazing vacation. Need to wash your clothes – check, beautiful front loader washer/dryer; need to cook a meal – check, everything you could ever need (including the plastic ware to store your leftovers); need to find a restaurant or wonder what fish you just saw snorkeling – check, vacation guide books and coffee table books galore covering every topic that could be covered regarding the island; need to connect to the internet – check, seamless wireless connection; need to print something – check, access to the printer (what!); need to go to the beach – check, beach towels, sand toys, snorkels/fins, chairs, beach mats, even extra sunscreen and bug spray (just in case you run out!); have a rainy day – check, books, novels, nice theater size TV and oh did I mention the view that you can stare at for hours and never get board (need a close up, they even thought of binoculars); need to get a great night’s sleep – check, mattresses and bed linens are lovely and if you need extras, you guested it just check the closet; need to write your children’s name on waterproof cameras so you don’t get them mixed up – you guessed it CHECK – they even had a sharpie! I think you get the idea – this place is an amazing and all rental property owners should take a page from this lovely couple’s book. Pu-u Poa #308 should not even be called a rental it should be called a home away from home! Loved it! Yes I would rent this property again – I don’t think our family could stay anywhere else on the island! We were spoiled! And yes I would definitely recommend this rental to family and friends!
Turtles! by Major M. on 11/17/14 Aloha! Our two families had a wonderful time on Kauai and we loved this condo. We loved sitting on the lanai, watching turtles, dolphin, and even whales. The view is mesmerizing and it is hard to leave! The condo is very well appointed, very clean, and perfect for two families as there are two master bedrooms. We hope to return. Mahalo to the owners for sharing! PS - don't miss the Black Canyon trail. Best view we have had! by See A. on 08/19/14 Stayed here July 2014 with our kids and another family. Unreal view! The lanai is practically over the crashing waves. Turtles and the sunset every day. Kitchen is nicer than our own home has. We ate in almost every meal just to enjoy the view (and save $$).
We really loved the place and it had an incredible view and location. I loved that is was nice and clean and filled with all the items you would need to cook and go to the beach. I would definitely stay there again and hope to come back next year. Love, Love, Love

Our stay at your lovely place was grand! We elected to forego some activities and instead took in the island ambience and views from your lanai. The geckos and cardinals are more charming than the fish! We compliment you on providing tastefully furnished rooms. We love the art!
If you are looking for a Kaiau get-a-way you have come to the right place. This wonderfully remodeled condo is a few minutes from a secluded beach with great snorkeling. The view of the ocean from the living room, dining room, and patio is spectacular. And who doesn't love the sound of the ocean waves breaking when you are going to sleep?! It has a large kitchen with all the necessary appliances and cookware. The bedrooms have nice big beds with plenty of storage. The area is great as well, with the St. Regis a short walk down the street, the golf course, and a running/walking path along the golf course. The owners also make available snorkeling gear, tennis rackets, beach towels, and plenty of other beach toys. I highly recommend this place! Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, girls getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, adventure seekers, families with young children.

We've been vacationing at HBR for over 20 years,but nothing compared with our last visit. We stayed in unit 9201-9203 and it was by far the most beautiful condo we've stayed in. The unit is perfectly located on the 2nd floor with idyllic ocean views and lots of privacy. The interior is beautifully appointed with hardwood floors and lovely new furnishings throughout. Every possible amenity was thought of including beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. There's a generous lanai with stunning views of the ocean and Bali Hai. The resort was fantastic and the staff was very helpful. There's a huge pool with waterfalls and a sandy beach and tennis courts. We like to pick up some fresh fish at Hanalei Fish Market and grill it at the BBQ' s located on the resort property. Next time we return to Hawaii we will definitely be staying at this condo.
Letitia and Ian, Brisbane, Australia
Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful piece of paradise. It was such a fabulous end to our first holiday as a family. The location, the snorkels and beach towels and the the little extras really made it feel like a home away from home and made our stay hassle free.
Patrick and Linda, Oregon
We loved staying at your "home away from home." It was so great to wake up to the views of Bali Hai - can't beat that view while sipping your morning coffee. Kauai brought us many special memories as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Mahalo for sharing such a special place!
One word, WOW describes this amazing place. We are accustom to staying at five star hotels and this place did not disappoint. The question I would ask, why would anyone pay 2 to 3 time as much for a suite at the St Regis when you can get this 2 bedroom beautiful home for a fraction of the cost? This condo just received a total remodel with beautiful decor and a full "large" kitchen. Nothing was missing during our week long stay in this home. The views are spectacular and the sunsets are one of kind. It was delightful to wake up every morning with a cup of coffee and watch the breaking of the waves. The beaches are beautiful, including a 2 minute walk to Hideaway Beach, spectacular! The condo is centrally located, just a 5 minute walk to the St Regis, shopping is only two miles away and if golf is your thing, there is an award winning golf course at the Princeville Resort. We highly recommend this condo as the perfect place to stay on the island. Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, girls getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, adventure seekers.
Wonderful, relaxing vacation in this beautiful condo!!!! Guest Sandra M. Date of stay 03/30/13 Review Submitted 07/06/13 My family and I stayed at this beautiful Pu'U Poa condo in March/April 2013. The moment we walked in we loved this place. The condo is brand-new: new furniture, new appliances, new everything, high-end and tasteful. It felt like walking into a designer showroom. The condo has astonishing views: all rooms except for the second bed room overlook the ocean and parts of Hanalei Bay. It's only a minute walk away from the St. Regis which has a calm beach and kayak rentals, or you can climb down to a great snorkeling beach right behind the condo (beach gear is provided in the condo). There is also a fantastic golf course close by. There is a BBQ on the patio and you can grill your food while enjoying the sunset. If you don't feel like cooking, there are plenty of terrific local restaurants close by. We also liked the pool and the adjacent lawn where our kids played soccer. The owners were lovely and helpful. I would definitely recommend this condo!!! Recommended for: Romantic getaway, girls getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, adventure seekers, families with young children.
A beautiful condo with amazing view Guest Tim Date of stay 07/13/13 Review Submitted 08/03/13 We stayed here for two and a half weeks and loved it. The condo is clean, elegantly furnished and sleeps six comfortably. The views from the lanai are breath-taking providing a panoramic west-facing view over ocean, Hanalei Bay and the North Shore mountains of Kauai. We practically lived on the lanai. The sunsets alone are reason enough to stay in this condo. Below the unit is a great trail that takes you through tropical jungle to the well-known Hideaways beach which became a favorite sun-tanning and snorkelling spot for our family. I can't recommend this condo enough. We would return in a heart-beat!
