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.

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.

Great ExperiencePosted Nov 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
A very nice secluded location with first rate owners (Bill & Cathy). It has a well appointed and comfortable living area and kitchen. You will find both lush hillside views and privacy. We were treated very well when our plans took an unexpected turn. They went above our expectation to be flexible and helpful to assure our successful stay. We recommend Hale Kua completely. It is a wonderful place to enjoy your stay.

A little piece of paradisePosted Sep 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Wonderful hosts. Beautiful location. Our stay was only 3 days but you could easily stay a week here. The only negative is that the house in which the apartments are located is need on some work but the apartment itself was fine. The grounds are like living in a tropical garden. Very convenient to all southern Kauai sights. Would definitely go back.

Awesome place in KauaiPosted Jul 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
We visited for a few days, found it by chance on hotels.com, really nice personal service, the owner even brought us muffins when we came in. Kind of difficult to find at the beginning, in a really nice (and wet) area of Kauai ten minutes from Poipu. We stayed in the cottage, worth it!
