This was my first time to Kauai and didn't know what to expect. What a treat! Hale Malanai is a slice of paradise. I rented the house for a month. I spent most of my time on the lanai reading and listening to the crashing waves. The view from from the lanai is spectacular! They say during whale season (which I just missed) you can see whales from the house. The beach is an easy few feet away as its just across the street. The house has a lovely bamboo outdoor shower to rinse off the sand. I loved the kitchen. The owners stocked it full of things a cook would use...even a food processor and ice cream maker!
Hale Malanai is walking distance to many great restaurants and shops. A rental car is necessary for further exploration of the island.
The Punee, or Hawaiian daybed (queen size) is a dream as it has it's own ocean view and bathroom. Heaven on earth. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends!!
