“Marvelous, relaxing vacation in delightful, comfortable Hawaiia”
Halle Reed is everything you wish for in a Hawaiian rental home. This charmingly appointed, clean, comfortable, well provisioned and well located home, a short walk to beautiful Hanalei beach, is a delightful vacation choice. Tv, a large selection of books, games, and CDs provide ample rainy day entertainment for all ages and the well furnished loft (from which you can view the lovely sunsets) provides additional "spread out" space. Owner Sally Reed takes pride in maintaining her home and a hands on interest in the comfort of each guest. We thoroughly enjoyed a splendid stay at Halle Reed and highly recommend it.
“Perfect oasis, then beach and main st so close”
My wife and I stayed upstairs for a little less than a week. Awesome laid back play a quick walk from beach and town. This is a great place to relax inside and out. The owner is great to work with and the place is all its cracked up to be - open great ambiance, says relax all over it. And lots of interesting books to read about the area and all kinds of escapist stuff too! We'll be back...Thank you!
“Fabulous Experience in Hanalei.”
Two families totaling ten people rented both the main house and basement apartment for 10 days. The home was clean and well-stocked with everything necessary for a successful vacation. Beds were comfortable, appliances worked perfectly, no problems with bugs or neighbors. The beach and town were so close that most days we and the children walked to both places and shopped, ate, and enjoyed what has to be the most fabulous beach in the world. We loved having the outdoor shower to wash off sand before coming in the house - really helped keep the inside much more sand-free. A couple days it rained, but the large stock of games and movies, along with ample spaces throughout the house for small groups to congregate easily took care of that. It also helped that because we'd rented the basement, our teenagers had a place they could come and go throughout the day and night without bothering any of the adults and small children upstairs. The owner was extremely friendly and easy to work with, answering all our questions in a very timely fashion. Being at this home was like experiencing a little bit of paradise. When we ended the week our children all informed us that they wanted to come back here and get together with our friends every year for the rest of their lives.
“A slice of paradise”
We stayed at Hale Reed the end of October 2013 and were delighted with our good fortune to have found it The top floor apartment is spacious and nicely appointed with lovely extra sitting places both inside and out Huge wrap around deck with room for dining or just hanging out The kitchen had everything and more that you need to create a great meal Location, location, location It's a quick walk to the gorgeous Hanalei beach also very close to town and lovely places to eat at or explore. For those traveling with older kids there is a great hang out space on the third glor with games and instruments We would love to return someday and highly recommend it
“Hale Reed--great beach + hanalei base camp home”
We've been to Hanalei many times...with various sized groups of family and friends...so have stayed in different rental homes each time to accommodate the size of our group. This time, we were 7 adults and Hale Reed (both up and downstairs) fit us--and suited us-- beautifully. The house has the best decks and private out door spaces...as well as comfortable beds and a very well equipped kitchen. Yes, the closets and cupboards are full of plates and bowls and the like, but this makes for easy entertaining. The rooms on either end of the upstairs are essentially their own suites...nice for couples. The beach--via Hanalei pavilion--is just a 1 minute walk, yet the house is off of the busy road and we mostly heard the voices of surfers and families coming and going on foot to and from the beach. The top floor is really a great huge room for relaxing, playing, games, reading...and i imagine would be a marvelous place for younger children to play and make their own. Beautiful views and breezes up on this level too. We hope to stay at Hale Reed again someday soon.
“Our very favorite vacation spot!!”
We spent 10 days at Hale Reed and had an excellent experience. House is beautiful with gorgeous views from the wrap-around deck. The beach is just steps away from the house and is wonderful, wide and safe. The house is decorated with local art and feels very much like you're staying as a guest in a gracious home. There is much to do with town a short walk; the ability to rent wake boards down by the pier and several other world-class beaches just a scenic drive away. Extras are fast and free internet wireless, an outdoor shower, a well-stocked kitchen, boogie boards and loads of books to read. We can't wait to go again.
“awesome house, very close to best beach”
my family and I stayed at this house and absolutely loved it. The pictures do not do it justice. The location is perfect...just a few steps to the best beach but not on a busy road. The house had everything you could need including ample beach gear and a fully stocked kitchen. I've stayed in many vacation rentals but this one felt like someone's home. Full of very cool decorations and books. If you are looking to travel with a family and stay in the best town on Kauai, this is the location for you.
This was my second time staying here. First the good stuff. The house is located fifty feet from the county beach park. This is the most family friendly and safe beach on the island. The house has plenty of space for multiple or large families. There are beach chairs, a couple bikes, boogie boards, and such. An outdoor shower laundry facilities are on site. A nice tv and wireless internet make this easy to settle in to. The full time residents/neighbors are friendly and nice and the area is safe. We let our daughters walk the fifty feet to the beach unaccompanied. For the less than stellar. As mentioned, I stayed here seven years ago, and things that bothered me then still have not changed. First, the bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed. The other two bedrooms have tiny fulls. I got stuck in one of those and barely got any sleep next to my wife. Just too small with the warm tropical temps to be on top of your partner. The bedrooms could use ceiling fans to help circulate the air. The bedroom doors had to be left open with all of the windows open and it was still stuffy. We stayed the week prior in Poipu and had no such problems with a queen bed and a ceiling fan. The kitchen. There is a lack of modern pots, pans or cooking utensils. This stuff has not been replaced since my last stay and is from the early eighties to begin with. None of it is nonstick and the largest frying pan is 8". The refrigerator keeps things cold but everything gets soaking wet from a leaking freezer or something. The coffee pot is rusted to the point I was worried it might short out. Lastly is the cleanliness. The closets are cluttered to the point that you can barely hang things up,old blankets and such that smell musty are stacked in them, blinds are really dusty, and overall the house could be emptied of clutter. The deck furniture is starting to fail as well. I have not checked nearby rental pricing but for the $$$ I am expect a bit more.
Response from the owner I am so sorry & sad that these guest had issues of which they did not contact me, some of which I would have been able to correct, such as a new coffee pot from the storage room & checking the refrigerator temperature settings. They could have phoned me for free on the house phone at any time, but they did not. All guests are encouraged to call me if there are any problems. There is also a list of others to call. To fail to contact me and then to subsequently complain is unfair and mean-spirited. There are three bedrooms, of which one has a king, another a queen, and the smaller of the three rooms, a full bed. The guest has incorrectly described the regular size queen & regular size full beds as ‘tiny full beds’. Moreover, the bed sizes should have been of no surprise to them, for prior to booking, all guests are provided bed size information. This guest has previously stayed at my vacation rental. The, only difference from their previous stay is that one of the queen size beds was replaced by a king size bed. There are 3 ceiling fans in the main part of the home, but the bedroom ceilings are too low for fans, so I can’t do anything about this. I provide numerous portable fans for the bedrooms. Why didn’t they use them? Again, they were familiar with my house having previously rented it. The kitchen is well supplied with quality items. The pots & frying pans are of top quality stainless steel & currently available for sale in quality stores. I choose not to use the teflon as it gets scratched right away & does not look good. Also non-stick pans that are damaged may or may not be a health hazard. I err on the side of caution. There are 3 sizes of pans, including a 10” pan. The quests never complained about the cooking utensils in their previous stay. The closets need to hold items to operate the house. Each bedroom closet holds an extra set of sheets, spare blanket & an extra set of pillows for each bed & other items many guests find useful, such as a portacrib, high chair, ironing board, fans, vacuum cleaner, etc. In any case, most of the same type of items were in the closets the last time the guest booked, & there is adequate space & hangers to hang their clothes. Perhaps it is ‘clutter’ what you don’t need to use yourself. Originally, these guests booked as 2 couples & 3 little children. Shortly prior to arrival, they requested adding another couple & small child. I said that was alright if they felt they would all be comfortable as they were familiar with my home size. They were still within my home limit of guests & my requirement that everyone sleep on a comfortable bed. I was assured there would be no problems with this. The mini blinds are problematic as I am so close to the salt water that they are hard to keep perfectly clean. I hope to replace them shortly as I am continuously upgrading my home & furnishings. My home has been a work in progress over the past 20 years that I have owned it. I am continually upgrading the house & furnishings. There was no mention of the new higher quality living room furnishings; better kitchen lighting or the many other upgrades or indeed the living room ceiling fan which is new since their last visit. Again, I am sorry that they did not contact me if they had any issues. I did, however, receive complaints from neighbors that there was too much noise on several occasions, when they had promised me, prior to their arrival, that they would be careful to not be noisy and respect my neighbors. The writer believed that value for the dollar was absent in my rental fee; however, he did acknowledge that the location was outstanding and within steps of one of the finest beaches, and that my home had many amenities. It is furnished with quality furniture; well supplied with kitchen needs; linens & well maintained-- in spite of being so close to the salt air & the ongoing rust issues that dwellers in the tropics have to confront on a regular basis. These guests comprised a party of 6 adults & 4 children. They paid the low season price of $357 per night to house 10 people or, presuming they split the rent 3 ways, $119 a night per family. If they believe they could find another rental with a location as close or closer to one of the finest beaches & that provides all or more of the amenities that my rental provides, then they should go for it. My home books close to 100%, & there are many grateful families that appreciate what I offer and that my rates are under the rental market for the area.
“Our Family's Favorite Vacation Home and Location.”
Our family vacationed here two weeks in 2010, two weeks this summer, and dream about returning soon. We love this spacious family home just steps from our favorite beach. Hale Reed is an amazing home - warm, gracious and very comfortable. The wrap around deck as well as the upper story have lush, panoramic views. Our family loves the Hawaiian furnishings, art and books about Hawaii. The welcoming style of the house reflects the owner's love and care over many years.
“Wonderful home in the perfect location!”
Just back from a week at Hale Reed - we had the upstairs and our friends rented the garden apartment - we couldn't have hoped for a better vacation home! Steps from the beach, a short walk to town, a relaxing wrap-around deck, outdoor shower, well-stocked kitchen, lots of space inside for everyone to spread out. Sally is great to deal with, and was very responsive to all our questions. I could have spent my entire vacation on the deck, looking at the mountains, watching the birds and just relaxing, but the town of Hanalei has a lot to offer and the beach is superb. There's definitely something for everyone at Hale Reed!
