Beautiful place up in the hills!Posted Jun 4, 2014
Fantastic place away from all the tourists. Really great spot and even better that they had beach gear to use. Only 10min from beach. Would definitely stay again!

Great little inland retreat!Posted May 14, 2014
Location: We went to Waimea Canyon, Queen Anne's Baths, the Kauai Coffee Company and several beaches. Eat breakfast at least once at the Kalaheo Cafe.
This was our first time in Kauai. The place was a little hard to find at night, since it's toward the interior of the island and not down on the beach, but Bill was kind enough to drive down to find us our first night in. The driveway is very steep, so if you're renting a car, you might go for one that doesn't ride too low. The place was perfect for our week stay: Clean, well-stocked, and beautiful. Though the roosters will wake you up in the morning. :) Also, the noise from upstairs foot traffic can be a little distracting, but hopefully you won't be spending too much time there. We bought a bunch of groceries from the Big Sale in Koloa and saved a fair amount of money cooking in our room. They have plug-in burners and just about every appliance or utensil you might need. One downside was that the sliding door wouldn't lock. We called and they tried to fix it, but we couldn't get it to lock all week. Theft was not a huge concern, but still, this was a little annoying. Overall though we'd definitely recommend the Taro Patch in the Hale Kua and we'd stay there again.

Hale Kua GuestsPosted May 5, 2014
Pros: Very clean and and relaxing! Eveything we needed was available, ie a cooler and ice packs.
Cons: I would leave it just the way it is!!!
We had been to Kuai several times and were looking for a unique place to stay, other than the traditional hotel.. We found Hale Kua Guests on line. The Inn was well cared for and surrounded by lush trees and beautiful native flowers. We also shoud mention there were many colorful chicken. We felt we were really in the jungle and enjoyed it thoroughly! We met Bill and his dog. The owners were very hospitable.

Live like the localsPosted May 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
If don't like the resort scene, and prefer something off the beaten path, I highly recommend Hale Kua. Bill and Cathy's place is hidden in a residential neighborhood with a great valley view facing south. With a full kitchen, and access to beach chairs, cooler, and boogie boards, we had everything we needed to cook our own meals, make our own drinks, and enjoy them on one of the many south shore beaches.

Fantastic for a large groupPosted Apr 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
This villa would be great for a family. 3 bedrooms with a loft. Fully equipped with all the necessities. Even had a few necessary cooking condiments. Would definitely stay here again. Only draw back is the road to get there. A little bumpy and the parking is somewhat limited.

My fiance and I adored Hale Kua Guests! We stayed four nights for our "pre-honeymoon" and the location and atmosphere were exactly what we were looking for! We really wanted to stay on the south shore near Poipu and this location was affordable, spacious, and cozy. The owner was fantastic, we arrived to a personalized note and muffins in our room. Complimentary body boards, coolers, beach towels, and chairs were an unexpected added bonus as well. The kitchen was also a great benefit as we were able to save money cooking some meals in our unit. We really couldn't have asked for a better place to call home on the island - especially at such an affordable price in an otherwise expensive area!

Nicely out of the way but close to everythingPosted Mar 29, 2014
If you are stayin on the southern part of the Island and don't want a resort scene this is a nice spot. Up a steep hill in a residential neighborhood with several room and cottage options. Not fancy but they have everything you need to live for your time on Kauai. Easy access to all of the the west, Waimea Canyon, southern beaches and sites and easy drive to the north. Owners friendly yet give you privacy.

Nice place for PricePosted Mar 28, 2014
The place was nice but the location was a little out of the way and no real view when on the porch. We new it was out of the way but expected a better view. If I came back to this Island I would stay here again because of the price. However, we were not impressed by the Island as it rained a lot.

Clean but far locationPosted Mar 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
We really enjoyed our stay at this clean hotel, and we had a nice peaceful view of the forest, but wished we would have been closer to the beach/ restaurants/ activities. The parking lot is on a steep hill and can be tricky to get on and off. It was nice having beach items for our use, and a grill.
