Hale Kokio : A Poet's View


By Cindy H.      March 2023

 Hale kokio, Kauai vacation Rental Kilauea


I arrived at Hale Kokio with hope and peacefulness in mind

Because, of course, you never know what you will find

I found the owner Allan was sweet, humble, and kind,

And offered me his home grown lettuce and oranges from the vine

The cottage was well stocked from kitchen to bath,And so very clean (I'd worried needlessly) I had to laugh.

The hot tub was immaculate and for the first time ever

My Dr husband rejoiced, jumping in, and didn't give me a lecture

Of the diseases you'd catch, oh the fungus that would grow. 

If the tub wasn't looked after and TRUST ME he would know!

My head hit the pillow, it had been a long flight,

From Sydney to here and my internal clock wasn't right

But the bed was so comfy I thought I had died,

And even the 3AM roosters with their battle cry couldn't rose me tho how they tried!

At first I thought BE QUIET It's not yet dawn, couldn't rose me tho how they tried!

So I snuggled yet deeper into that amazing bed and barely lifted an eyelid nor raised my head

For I had found paradise and in this life that's rare

And if I wanted car noise, tourists, and parties I'd have gone elsewhere..

This place is perfect for a retreat of two, if you want to be comforted when the day is through

Look no further trust me here,  Book Hale Kokio, you've got nothing to fear.

                        Wonderful Private Cottage

By Lisa Q.      Stayed March 2023

Perfect for couples who don't want the crowds of the typical resort or busy travel areas. Out of the way but not far from things needed. Incredibly nice owners who make sure you don't need anything and are available any time. Property is absolutely gorgeous. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you for sharing your experience at Hale Kokio. We chose the private location in Kilauea on beautiful Kauai for the purpose of convenience and beauty of the North Shore. Recently Kilauea has grown at just the right way. The new shops and great eateries are close by. We appreciate our guests, please stay in touch.   Mahalo
