An exceptional property with the most magnificent views. This is our fourth stay and nothing else could compare.
Not sure we'll be able to top this experience.
The house was beautiful and everything was thoughtfully prepared for our stay. When compared to the resorts on the island at a similar price point, this was for us, better in every way. Waking up to the expansive views of the ocean every morning was amazing.
Mahalo Neal for your lovely five-star review. We appreciate your comments and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Beautiful house and perfect location.
Loved this beautiful house! Pool was fantastic! Views were beyond incredible. The house is even better than the pictures. There are atriums throughout the house so you feel the outdoors is inside. I was initially worried about no air conditioning in the living areas, but the open air and breeze is better.. I think over 10 sliding glass doors. It felt like a luxurious hotel but you had it all to yourself! Perfect the bedrooms had air conditioning at night. Thoughtful touches like the pitcher of mai tai and gift basket of treats when we arrived were greatly appreciated. Wish I was back there already!
Greg A. says
From the minute we walked Into the property we felt like royalty. This home is a gem with views of the ocean from every space. The host was also great leaving us treats from the island to enjoy during our stay. I cannot recommend this property enough and we will definitely be back.
Janine and Kevin Ruland says
Not often does a property not only meet but exceed expectations. Hale Makai is absolutely beautiful and gorgeously appointed, every detail was covered. Beautiful flower arrangements throughout the house, kitchen stocked with absolutely everything you could need. The surround sound throughout the house, the views, the lap pool, too much to list elevated the experience to this side of magical. We celebrated our 20th anniversary there and immediately upon our return booked the property again. We are so grateful to the generous host that makes this property available for us to visit. Thank you, Parrish, for your hospitality and making our stay so memorable.
Mahalo Janine & Kevin for the glowing review. It is one of my favorites as well and so glad you got to enjoy it. See you again next year. A hui hou.
Caroline T. says
From the moment we drove up to this spectacular home we knew this was going to be the most amazing vacation celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary! Every detail from the vaulted ceilings to the exquisite kitchen, overall decor and furnishings made us feel like we had literally stepped into a dream come true! The is our 2nd time vacationing in a Parish Kauai rental and absolutely plan on returning soon!
Marijean & Brett J. says
The amazing location, the beautifully constructed home and the incredible amenities the house had to offer!
Jaime Devereaux provided great communication prior to our arrival via email and text messaging. She was very warm and kind when we met her at the house! She provided us with a bottle of champagne for our 30th anniversary plus a gift basket full of yummy Hawaiian goodies, a pitcher of amazing homemade mai tais and Mai tai sorbet! She showed us around the incredible house and we had the most perfect vacation, celebrating our 30th anniversary! Thank you so very much, Parrish!!
Happy Anniversary Marijean & Brett and mahalo for your 5-star review and comments! We are so glad that you loved the home and that Jaime was able to help you along the way. We look forward to hosting you again soon! Mahalo and a hui hou!
Brett and Marijean Johnson says
We had the most amazing week staying in this incredible home! The amenities, the pool, the outstanding views, the comfort and beauty of the home inside and out…..everything was outstanding! We loved using the binoculars available at the home to look out at the ocean and the sunsets from the lanai were stunning. Great restaurants and awesome snorkeling nearby…just an overall perfect home and memorable experience. Thank you so much!
Mary Beth J. says
Quality, design, and decor of the home and view and pool. As well as a well-stocked kitchen. Great website, friendly and responsive staff, Jaime Devereaux.

Karoline C. says
Jaime very kindly arranged a smooth transfer between rentals. A proper tea pot (ceramic, not metal, not a kettle) would be nice. Living room furniture is not very comfortable to sit on.
Hello! Would you permit two adults and a 6 year old at this property? Thanks!
Aloha Avery, I am sorry, the owner has a maximum occupancy request at two. I am sure we can find other options for you. Mahalo.
Dru A. says
Ease of everything, organized.
Winnie I. says
For our rental property specifically, it would have been nice to have a charcoal grill (instead of gas). Having umbrella and beach chairs was great.
Allan & Sandra says
Great oceanfront location.
Jamie was an excellent host. Took good care of our arrival and move into the house. Great location and size of villa. The lanai and the view/sound of the waves were amazing.
Mahalo for your 5-star review. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Rebecca Ungar says
The home looks perfect! is there covered parking? thanks! Thinking about late August.
Aloha Rebecca, Thanks for your interest in Hale Makai. Unfortunately, there is no covered parking available. If this is something you need, we can help you find other rentals that include covered parking or a garage. Please call our team at 800-325-5701 for assistance. Best wishes from Parrish Kauai
Mark M. says
modern design, lots of windows and incredible views
Michelle K. says
Excellent customer service
Christie met us at the house
Karoline C. says
There are not many rentals geared for just an adult couple. The house just called our name.
Aloha greeting from Christie was terrific. Loved the minimalism of the house itself, the covered lanai, being right on the ocean. We were given the wrong keys but the right ones were delivered to us within 30 minutes.
Mahalo Karoline for your 5-star review. We again apologize on the keys and look forward to hosting you again soon. You are right, this home is perfect for a couple. Aloha!
Laura Vilani says
How many people can sleep here?
Aloha Laura. The max is two people. Mahalo!
Kimberly P. says
Five star service
Robin – she is very busy and always takes time to answer any questions we may have Simone – very cordial and a pleasure to speak with. We met Christine at the home. We are a repeat customer and are familiar with locations. We have stayed at hale makai. It is meticulously maintained and exceptionally appointed. Outstanding location and amazing home. You can not find much nicer places. A professional company that offers first class services at premier locations on kauai.
Mahalo Kimberly for your 5-star review and comments. Thanks again for your loyalty and we look forward to hosting you again. Aloha a hui hou.
Catharine B. says
the limited air conditioning was OK except we could not turn if off. Myra came and unlocked the remote controls for us so we could turn it off.
Bret B. says
Great ocean front location
That pool is ICE cold. We made ourselves get in because it was an amenity we paid for… Otherwise a spectacular property in every way. Natalie was most helpful
Norm & Brenda says
The property was perfect for just 2 people - we wanted a house not a condo.
The house was in imaculate shape and the location could be no better. The only negative is the easement with people always being on the beach directly In front of the house…lacked privacy due to the easement traffic. One other negative is we assumed the pool was heated and it was not – too cold for us to use… Other that that it was pure perfection. Natalie was such a pleasure to work with and made every effort to make our stay more than exceptional! Can’t wait to return next year!
Mahalo Norm & Brenda for your 5-star review. We look forward to hosting you next year. Please note that all beaches and coastline are public in Hawaii. Luckily few people come down the path and are respectful of private property. Aloha
Beth S. says
We hope Hale Makai stays as a rental! We would love to keep coming back when we can. We had a little trouble with the air conditioner in the main room. We called a few times and it was resolved both times.
Mahalo Beth for your 5-star review. We will do what we can to ensure it stays a rental. Sorry about the AC, but glad it is now repaired. Aloha and a hui hou.
Randall F. says
The design and location
The staff is great and the issues were addressed immediately-even if they could not be fixed. It is a lovely house but the :”quirks” were a bit much this time. Myra did her best to help us. I know she was very frustrated with the issues we were experiencing and we appreciated everything she tried to accomplish.
Mahalo Randall for your 5-star review despite the “quirks”. We will work with the owner to ensure all it correctly. Thanks again for being a loyal repeat guest and we look forward to hosting you again next year.

when saw the photos, we fell in love with the house and location.
Cyndee knowles says
Very interested in renting this home and have flexible dates beginning mid August. Would like to rent at least a week. Are discounts provided for additional days? This rental is for my husband I celebrating our 30th anniversary.
Question limited AC in living room. Are there charges for A C usage?
We are not interested in cooking many meals during our stay. How far are near by restaurants?
Is it an easy walk to Lawai beach and do you have chairs and an umbrella we can take to the beach? We are healthy. We love spending evenings on sandy beach and I can not determine from the pictures if we can do so in front of the rental.
We have aging parents, given that, we would like to begin renting mid August forward as your prices appear the same through October. Long story, but our pre purchased flights expire 11/1/2016. Therefore, we are definitely coming but God forbid one our parents pass we may have to end up rescheduling the exact week. Not looking for that to happen and we pray that will not. Just never know. Your rental is at the top of my list .
What will be the total price including all taxes, deposits, etc.? For 7,to 10 days.
Thanks Iin advance,
Thank you for your interest in Hale Makai…it is one of our most popular homes for romantic celebrations and based on what you have stated, it would be perfect for you. It is close to two popular beaches – Lawai Beach and Kukuiula Bay which are about a 5-10 minute walk at most. Both of these are perfect to settle in for the day with sun, swimming, etc. While there is no beach in front of Hale Makai, the view is fantastic and a cocktail with your feet in the pool is not a bad alterative.
The Shops at Kukuiula are also a 10-15 minute walk away. Here you will find four or five restaurants which offer all types of cuisine as well a farmers market (Wednesdays) where you can get prepared foods as well. The Beach House restaurant is also just down the road and it offers great oceanfront dining at night and for lunch. If you look at out Google Map and zoom out, you can see the exact location.
We do have a seven night minimum and because it is so popular, rarely do discounts on this property. The rate is flat year round so that actually helps as August is high season and September or October are low. The AC is limited, but for a small additional fee we can have it available for you all day. The main reason we limit it is all the doors to the home open and we want to be environmentally conscious.
The home does have two beach chairs, a small cooler, beach towels, etc. for your use.
As of now, I am pleased to say his home is available from for seven nights for a total of $6,782.35 plus a $1,000 refundable security deposit. We also have a eleven night stay available from 8/1 – 8/12 for a total of $9,504.36 (all inclusive) plus a $1,000 refundable security deposit.
We also do provide Travel Insurance through CSA Travel Protection for your accommodations at 6.5% of your total reservation and for here is our link for more information – https://www.parrishkauai.com/kauai-vacation-rental-insurance/. It would be good to call them to see if it covers your exact situation.
My name is Amber and it would be my pleasure to answer any further questions you may have or confirm this home for you. You can reach our reservation department at 1-800-325-5701 Monday – Friday from 7:00am – 5:00pm HST and on Saturday & Sunday from 8:00am – 4:00pm HST. We look forward to assisting you with this special trip to beautiful Kaua’i.

We used Cory Stokes for an evening as a personal chef. Cory is a very talented and accommodating chef. The experience was top clas, very enjoyable.
Amy M. says
beautiful architecture and the view!
We have previously stayed at Lani Kai, this far exceeded our expectations. Excellent stay. Thank you so much for creating an exceptional place for us to vacation.
Fred & Janis Ferry says
Fantastic Property & Vista
The home is maintained excellently! Kristi made us feel very welcomed to the home and did a great job explaining details. Hale Makai is as close as an island home could have been in paradise. With the sea and visiting turtles at our lanai. The night sky awash with stars to the distant horizon. A fantastic way for Janis and I to spend out stay on one of the prettiest spots on this planet! Kauai. Love it!
An absolutely deightful week in Paradise. The home is outstanding and is equipped with the most wonderful furnishings. The location is spectacular with an incredible view. The assistance provided by Kristi I have not found anywhere else I have travelled…

Hale Makai Stay. August 2011
A much needed vacation for my wife and I was amped up by our stay at Hale Makai. It started with assistance from our island host, Kristie, helping secure a rental car and meeting us at the home with refreshments/welcome basket along with a tour and overview of the home. The home itself is amazing – decor, layout, proximity to stores/beaches, appliances, audio/TV, landscaping and pool. We took advantage of the kitchen and excellent grill with local markets within biking/walking distance. The homes floor to ceiling windows slide open and onto the decks and patio, extending the already spacious home. The homes accommodations were on par; if not slightly better, than top-tier resorts we have stayed in throughout the islands. We had the privacy of a home, convenience of a kitchen and our own pool/patio on the ocean w/out typical resort hassles/crowds. The home owner has done an amazing job making Hale Makai a true retreat. The yard and gardens lend themselves to the relaxing nature of the home. A view of the ocean is afforded in every room, making it just as easy to relax and enjoy the ocean inside as outside. The homes appointments are 5-star. Hale Makai is located between Spouting Horn and Lawai Beach – where the snorkeling is excellent. A quick walk to the Beach House Restaurant was unnecessary as our views and proximity to Living Foods market, The Wine Shop, Koloa Fish Market and the weekly Farmers Market made dining at home and on the patio the preferred choice. Following our stay we quickly recognized our desire to book for the following year. To note, the homes open beam style lends itself to visiting geckos and the floor to ceiling windows let in a lot of sun (easily cools by opening up and/or aC). This home is amazing and we look forward to future stays. Thanks again to Joanne for all your help in booking Hale Makai and Kristie for your help while on Kauai. We had a very enjoyable vacation and will see you soon. Best. Matt
One of our favorite vacation experiences
A magnificent contemporary home in a magical location. The home was perfectly appointed with every detail carefully considered. We can’t wait to return!
Tranquil Experience as Beauty Surrounds You
Our one week stay at Hale Makai provided a perfect escape from a hectic life. It is almost impossible not to relax in such a tranquil environment. The home itself is better than its internet pictures. To actually be inside this home gives one an immediate feeling of splendor. There were rainbows over the ocean almost every morning. The ocean waves crashing into the rocks outside the home make for a relaxing sound which made us sleep soundly. This home is ideally situated on Kauai and within a few minutes walk of the Beach House Restaurant and in close proximity to allerton Gardens. Several nights we stayed home an grilled fresh ahi or Mahi-Mahi as the kitchen is wonderfully equipped and the outside eating area provides the best dinning atmosphere on the island.I have stayed at some very nice places on Kauai in my previous 6 visits to this island but Hale Makai tops them all.
