Our guests love Hale Kokio. We appreciate their sharing of favorites and features of Hale Kokio and  beauty of the North Shore of Kauai. This is the spirit of Aloha that you find on this amazing little island.



This is what they have to say

                                                                MIKE U    FEBRUARY 2024

The house, location and property are perfect way to celebrate my 60th birthday! The house is beautiful and very private, walk to the yard and get some fruit off the tree. My wife made friends with the chickens that are everywhere on Kauai. Talked with the neighbor Rob almost every day. Thinking about going back soon!

The home and property are beautiful. The cottage has windows all around bringing in the wind, sound of rain, bird song and all the rooster friends. Sitting on the lanai and soaking in the hot tub was lovely.   The cottage has windows all around bringing in the wind, sound of rain, bird song and all the rooster friends.

There is a lot of greenery surrounding this little cottage. And a lot of chickens and roosters. They start crowing around 3 AM and continue through the day. Despite that, we slept through most of their singing. The cottage has a deck with a table where you can eat or relax too. It rained a lot when we were there off season. But it was still possible to get out and find things to do around that area when there were breaks in the weather. We enjoyed our stay.

   Hale Kokio was the perfect place to stay for our honeymoon! Clean,cute, an   short  distance from                   beaches  hikes, and restaurants. It was so nice to have a private getaway after exploring the island every day.

                                                                       Steven R    July 2023

    The privacy and seclusion of the property gave a  feel of our own Vacasa! The cozy cottage was    more  than                sufficient for our two week stay and we enjoyed every moment of our time there.

   Best vacay  in my 51 years….      👊👍❤️




                                                                                   5/5     STELLAR HONEYMOON  SPOT

                                                                                 Dawson G     JUNE 2023

My wife and I stayed here 11 days for our honeymoon and had an AMAZING experience! We felt like we were in the Garden of Eden as we walked around the property initially––there were so many different kinds of fruit growing! It's the perfect size for two, and WAY better than a hotel or resort. We saved a lot of money by mostly cooking our own food and eating it out on the lovely lanai. Here are some things to consider if you're thinking about staying here: It's in a great location too, just 20 minutes from Hanalei (the tourist hub of the north shore). The nearest town is Kilauea, which is way less touristy, which we enjoyed. The chickens are loud and will wake all but the heaviest sleepers up in the morning, but we didn't mind so much since it made the jet lag going back home not as bad. The loft has a couple air mattresses, so theoretically more than 2 could stay here, but it might be a tight squeeze. It is a true bungalow––kitchen, bed, and couch are all in the same room. The TV is very small and can only be viewed from the couch. It's only a minor inconvenience, but if you like to watch TV on your vacations, then this probably isn't the place for you (nor is Kauai in general, for that matter 😂). The exterior color on the house is not as vibrant as the pictures make it seem, but the view of the lush vegetation and sunset colors make any house's colors pale in comparison. All in all, GREAT experience and would absolutely use this spot again.

 Private and peaceful. The cottage could use a little fresh up/updating. However, we had a nice   time.

Clean, comfortable, and serene, Hale Kokio is better than the photos suggest. It is setup for  a couple to enjoy. If you  like cooking you'll appreciate the well-equipped kitchen and gas grill in the side yard. Hale Kokio is a good location for exploring the  north shore.

This was the most beautiful place I have ever been. It is nestled in a quiet neighborhood with the  most peaceful gardens of greenery, fruit trees, and  beautiful plants and flowers. The space inside  was perfect for the two of us.   My husband and I felt like we were sleeping in the clouds on the bed it was so comfortable, we slept so peacefully. Our hosts did a wonderful job with this guest   cottage. I didn’t want to go home. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.❤️❤️❤️

                                                       5/5   AWESOME PLACE TO STAY ON KAUAI

                                                                                 Stephen E L    January 2023    

We absolutely loved Hale Kokio! The cottage is very special and the grounds are amazing. We primarily cooked our meals during our week stay. The kitchen had  everything we needed. The lanai overlooking  the beautiful property was our preferred  spot for breakfast and dinner (we were usually off enjoying the area at lunch time). We  slept great on the comfortable bed and didn't have any need for the air  conditioner.   We just opened the windows and let the cool breezes blow through. The location was   great with an easy drive to many great beaches. Our personal favorite was Secret  Beach.  Hale Kokio is a very unique and special place to stay on Kauai.
