What Past Guests Are Saying
We stayed for four nights at Pua Hale, a cosy home/loft with a beautiful, serene and very private garden. The house itself is ideal : it is very bright, spotless clean and it feels even bigger than it really is, because of the high ceilings. It has everything you need, from a fully furnished kitchen to a cosy living space. You can even use the washer and dryer as well as all the beach gears (towels, chairs, boogie boards, etc). There are two sliding doors that open on a beautiful garden. It was great to be able to just sit there with a book and an hawaiian beer after a day at the beach. The owner also left us fresh papayas and oranges as a welcome gift, which was really appreciated. The beach is more or less a 10 minutes walk, but if you take chairs and a cooler with you, you might want to drive (2 minutes!) and park near Poipu Beach Park. Pua Hale is a real gem. If you are looking for a confortable, peaceful and private place to stay, I highly recommend it.

Privacy and Charm...a slice of Kauai.
We spent 4 weeks at Pua Hale this year (4 weeks last year as well), so that in itself shows how much we like this place. A private, self-contained, 1 bedroom cottage with its own off-street parking and its own tropical garden. A well maintained and provisioned rental that has everything we want and need for our holiday... plus a very friendly and accommodating host. Carol ann Davis is as "local" as they get. Born and raised on Kauai, there isn't much she doesn't know about the island and the pleasures it has to offer. Fresh fruit in the bowl from her own trees when you arrive (plus coffee beans to grind for your 1st morning) and if you're lucky a fresh loaf of banana bread sometime during your stay. She can suggest all kinds of things to do, places to go and help you plan your stay, but done on your terms. As we have mentioned this is a very "private" rental and Carol ann makes sure of that.
Kitchen is well supplied with pots, pans, dishes, etc... large new fridge, oven/cooktop and a great microwave. Comfy bed, good ventilation and ceiling fans (A/C on request for an extra cost - but you probably won't need it), washer and dryer, beach chairs, cooler, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, large flat panel TV, DVD player ,etc. (it does get dark early there and Dwts is on...). Very close to Poipu Beach, Spouting Horn, botanical gardens, Koloa Town, Hanapepe and not far from Lihue. Lots of other places to go and things to do near by (everything on Kauai is close by). Grocery stores in Koloa and good shopping within walking distance. Speaking of walking... Pua Hale is only about a five minute walk to Poipu Beach. A walk down to the beach just before sunset is well worth it and a great way to end your day!
Very quiet and a great alternative to the "resort" type of accommodation.
Cozy Cottage with privacy
Great stay here on our honeymoon! Very private cottage located on owner's property, close to the beach but in a residential area. Clean, comfortable bed, loved the furo tub! Everything you could need when it comes to kitchen and bath- right down to spices in the kitchen and lots of towels,etc. Beautiful garden with water feature-very zen.
The owner was very helpful and friendly- and there was lots of fresh fruit left for us which was a generous and appreciated touch of aloha!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Pua Hale and in Kauai- would definitely stay there again!
My husband suggested we should build our own Pua Hale
Pua Hale was the first leg of our honeymoon last summer. We spent eight amazing days in this cozy little wonder - soaking in the Japanese bath, drinking morning coffee in the private garden filled with bouganvillea and plumeria, and venturing forth to explore the south shore of Kauai.
The kitchen was very adequate for our needs, the decor was delightfully simple and beautiful and...did I mention the Japanese bath? Oh, and the five minute walk to Poipu beach passes right by a mango tree that presented us with luscious treats to tote to the beach.
Our hostess was respectful of our privacy but was also eager to welcome us to Kauai and give us tips and pointers on places not to miss.
Frankly, I almost hate to review Pua Hale, as I don't want to make it more popular than it is. But I could hardly help but do so, as my new husband did immediately return to Missouri and began talking of building our very own Pua Hale here.
Can't wait to come back!
What does it say when you come back...twice!!!
I am not the usual guest here because I came by myself each time. After I had found this rental, mostly by chance the first time back in 2005 during my initial trip, I know exactly what to expect and not have to wonder what the accomodation variables to the trip are going to be. (Tried something else in similar price range only once--a hotel at the Wailua River area--and came right back!)
I believe that when built, the Japanese travel market was at a high point and as a result you have the option to try the handmade, built-in tiled tub you see in the photo! (It takes a while to fill and a shower is much more efficient-- as you learn how important the solar heated water is here--see the other photo!)
If you visit Kauai, you are probably going to have a rental car and that leads to one reason why I really like this place. You can just come and go and you're not parking that car out in some lot a three to five minute walk from your room--it's off the street and in your own spot. That applies to condos and hotels that may run much more than Pua Hale.
"Not on the beach?" Think as the native Hawaiians would think--its not smart to turn your back on the sea--at least if you're going to sleep and not ready to run fast!
Don't know the next time I'll make it back but please take care of this place...its been the nicest piece of paradise that I know best! The last trip out, I was stading in the kitchen looking out the window with a cup of morning coffee and eating some papaya I had been given by the owner. I was just looking up at the trees and feeling the trade wind breeze blow though the screened windows.
Darn I felt fortunate!

Felt like a home away from home but much more leisure time!
If it were on the beach, it would be perfect but then, we wouldn't get the exercise of our five-minute walk. It's what we've dreamed of when we retired plus a new and treasured friendship with the owner and much more of a hideaway. We can explore the island or curl up and read a book. In other words, do whatever we want to, when we want to. Isn't that what a vacation is for?
