Your team was very attentive and helpful. One of the tv remotes didn't work, and it was replaced within a few days. The texts and emails we received throughout our stay were just enough to be helpful.
Loved it!! Amazing location and the house had a truly authentic "old-hawaiian" vibe.

We worked personally with Mark and appreciated his knowledge, his enthusiasm, his interest in helping us. He popped in for a follow-up visit, which was lovely. My son needed to complete some time-sensitive work matters that required electronic equipment available in your office, and the two people who were there on a Sunday working away were very helpful and very personable. Everybody with whom I interacted via email and text and telephone was most gracious and professional.
Mahalo! We are happy we could help and hope to see you again soon:)
We basically lived on the main lanai, using the east end for its shade when needed, and the fire pit area, as we called it, for an unfettered view. The view and the smells and the crashing waves made the trip a success. When we travel as a family we depend upon a BBQ for our main meal of the day. The BBQ at Hale Moku was not functional--it took an hour to cook hotdogs, for example! I know Mark and I think another person who came while we were out tried to fix it, but I think the only fix is a replacement.
Thanks for letting us know about the grill. We are going to replace it. We really appreciate your review. It sounds like you had an amazing visit! The lanais are actually being replaced now so they will be brand new the next time you come and visit.

The team at Great Vacation Retreats was great to work with. Everyone I spoke with was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. I was never made to feel as though I was being a bother when I spoke with them. The maintenance man was very helpful when he came to fix something. I pointed out a few other things and he stayed until all the issues were fixed. I especially liked the ability to texed the office and the quick response.
Mahalo for your review! Thanks for being such great guests. We hope to see you again soon.
The location and views were fantastic. The house is older but was fixed up nicely. The different levels in the floor was concerning at first but we quickly adjusted. I hope that someday you consider renting the room off the garage along with the house. I would also suggested replacing the bed in the loft.
I was very pleased to see the beach equipment. Especially the snorkeling gear. It was better than what I've rented in the past.
Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it. We will check on the bed. The owners are considering renting out the studio by the garage. Hopefully soon;)

Waves crashing 24/7. Its like having a real life noise machine every minute youre in the house. We slept like babies. My wife and I have stayed in Airbnbs all over the world and this was one of our favorites. That said, the interior of the house is dated - its ok but nothing special. The crashing waves, amazing views, and total privacy - priceless! 5 stars! If I had the money I would buy the place, totally remodel the house, and double the listing price. Those crashing waves and the sunset views every night are worth millions!

This house has everything you need! We loved it! It was our first time in Hawaii and this home made our trip perfect! The home had amazing views and everything we needed from kitchen items, soaps ect in all bathrooms, full equipment laundry room, everything you need for the beach, the beach is walking distance, but also driving is just down the street. Shopping areas; one store we liked and was close to this home was Big Save we found everything we needed. Paco's Tacos just down the street was delicious Mexican food. I'd highly recommend this house! My family and I loved it! Right out on the deck of this house we saw Sea Turtles & far away Whales. You can hear the ocean through out the whole entire house! It's a beautiful home! Our special occasion at this home (trip) to Kauai Hawaii was my daughters 10th birthday she also loved the home! She even left a small note saying how she loved it!

Janie was wonderful! She was extremely responsive AND she helped us find a place in the area where we could take our children trick-or-treating, since our vacation coincided with Halloween. Going that extra mile for us and our kids made all the difference on our trip and helped give them a memory that will last them a lifetime. Thank you Janie!!!
It was a beautiful location. Some of our fondest memories from the whole vacation were had at the property: watching breath-taking sunsets from the balcony, enjoying dinner or afternoon cocktails on patio, making leis with the children from the plumeria tree in the front yard, looking at the birds and lizards around the property, watching sea turtles rocking in the waves from the balcony and catching (and releasing) an array of exotic fish from the back of the property.
The decor in the property was beautiful. The space was inviting and comfortable. We saved a ton of money and had a more relaxed stay by being able to cook and enjoy meals at the house.
It was also walking distance to a world-class, kid-friendly beach that was great for relaxing and snorkeling.
I am so glad that Hale Moku worked so well for your family. Hopefully your children will remember your trip for many years. Come back to Kauai and visit us again someday!!

prompt and polite. I did wish we had a book that outlined the top spots to eat and see in the area as well as a checkout list of what was expected from us prior to us leaving. We loved the gifts in the fridge from GVR.
Mahalo for letting us know the book was missing! It has since been replaced. So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The owners are continuously improving the property. We hope to see you again soon!
Loved having local soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion...we found where we could buy it but it would have been nice to have a little card to tell us the scent and where to purchase if we were interested. House was very well furnished and had everything we needed.

The place is amazing. It really is about the location. Ocean views are incredible!!! You can view the sunrise right from your bed in one of the rooms. Unforgettable experience. The house itself was clean, plenty of towels, beach stuff and kitchen is filled up with everything. Hosts are quick and helpful if you need to communicate. It was really nice of them to offer us a late checkout because our plane was at 9:30pm. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

HALE MOKU was every bit as breathtaking as the photos show. Listening to the sounds of the water crashing on the rocks below and watching the sea turtles bobbing up and down throughout the day from any one of the lanais were a highlight of the trip.

This was a beautiful old house with the best ocean views on the island. The surrounding community is very quiet and not in the path of any helicopter tours, leaving only the sounds of the ocean crashing on the rocks. The house had a couple of spots halfway though - or in need of - repair, but if you're here to look at the paint you might be on the wrong vacation. My only word of caution is that there is no air conditioning, and many of the bedrooms dont have great air flow, so even with many fans it can be quite warm on those humid nights. However, once you stand on the balcony watching the sunset, and the trade winds pick up, you wont want to be anywhere else.
