Nearby Activities in Koloa

Hawaii offers an impeccable climate, a rich and one-of-a-kind cultural experience, a pacific-sized list of things to do, and some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. Koloa, on the Kauai island, is the perfect place to rent a beach house, no doubt. Each island, however, has its own unique, different flavor, if only slightly. My favorite flavor has always been Kauai - for its unmatched beauty, simplicity, and genuine, unaltered Hawaiian-ness.

Things To Do in Koloa

About Koloa, Kauai Even in Hawaii, thousands of miles from any mainland, it's possible to feel clustered, rushed, and even bothered. Between the crowds, hustle and bustle, and often Modern feel of Oahu and Maui, you might lose sight of the real beauty of Hawaii. Kauai has all of that- the untouched land, the traditional way of life, native Hawaiians making up the majority of the population, the quiet, breezy, natural beaches, the whole 9 yards. Don't get me wrong, Hawaii is paradise, but.. read more

"Best vacation home base we've ever had!
An amazing house, great location, spotless, and Angela was a joy to work with. Our family has 5 couples and Makalae was perfect for us. As close to a perfect vacation as we've ever had! Highly recommend! "

"Great location on South Shore
Clean and convenient with all the necessary amenities "

"Beautiful Family retreat in the south of Kauai
A wonderful facility for a family or large group a beautiful home with a marvelous kitchen and great accommodations in a very convenient location"
Dec 31, 2023 - , San Ramon, CA

"Perfect Location
We just returned home from our third stay at lovely Makalae. We'll be missing our view of sunsets and rainbows from the deck now that we're home in the snow! Thanks to Angela and the ReMax team for ensuring that our extended family had a most enjoyable holiday."

"Poipu Beach house
We enjoyed our visit to this lovely home. It is as described and was very comfortable for our group of 6. It was a great location although it was a little drive to the actual beach area. We loved walking to the end of the driveway to look at the water, sunset, turtles and dolphins. There is a hotel on the same driveway that does bring some walking traffic by the house often but wasn’t a big problem. Overall I would recommend this home for a very family friendly vacation in beautiful Kauai. "

"Wonderful spot and beautiful house.
The management company was very responsive to any questions we had. Beds were great and gathering space was also great for our adult children and spouses. Large kitchen with plenty of room at the dining table. Also enjoyed eating on the deck. Amazing location for sunsets and walking distance to snorkeling at Koloa Landing, which was one of the best snorkeling locations! Enjoyed easy access to Koloa for dining out and shopping. "

"Fantastic escape!
We were 9 women, surfers, snorkelers, hikers, and more, and we could not have been more pleased with our stay at Makalae!. The kitchen was well stocked with all we needed. The beds were comfortable. There was plenty of room for us to spread out after a day of activity, and the a/c worked like gangbusters. It was also gorgeous. The pictures do not exaggerate. Would highly recommend!"
Oct 01, 2023 - Teresa B., San Diego, CA

This house was perfect for our party of 7. The house was super clean. We did not utilize the fully stocked kitchen because we ate out, but nice to have for those who choose to cook. The lanai was great to just sit and relax and enjoy the view of the ocean. The air conditioning made us comfortable while in the house. Close to shops and restaurants. Nice touch to have beach towels, boogie boards, umbrellas and a wagon to use. Angela at ReMax was responsive to my inquiries. Great customer service! My family has been going to Kauai for about 7 years and this is absolutely the nicest house we have stayed at."

"Family trip of a lifetime!
This was a family reunion of 9 adults. We were celebrating many missed celebrations plus two wedding announcements. We had plenty of space, house was very clean. The towels for both the bathrooms and the beach were very good quality. Linens on the beds were clean and good quality. I normally do not like to utilize the soaps offered but they were also high quality and smelled great! Two sets of washers and dryers plus two dish washers - awesome! The house is gorgeous! The location is great. Everyone had a great time. Every couple had their own bathrooms, the kitchen was well stocked. sitting on the deck in the morning enjoying the beautiful view and drinking coffee - an awesome way to start the day. Grill is again high quality like all of the kitchen appliances! I was worried about having enough hot water for everyone's showers and there were no problems at all. The fans helped circulate the air and the air conditioning worked great! We would all come back to this house if we could. Thank you for sharing this with our family."

"Absolutely Lovely House...After you Find It
- Huge. Beautiful. Clean. Well kept.
- Very well stocked in terms of cooking and cleaning supplies, towels and sheets, and beach supplies.
- Amazing views of the ocean.
- 5 minute walk to a fantastic sandy beach, three lovey restaurants, and two shopping centres.
- Good customer service. We had a couple of toilet issues, and a plumber was there less than 24 hours later and fixed it all with no trouble.

- The electric layout of this house is odd. For example, the front porch has six lights: three controlled from the master bedroom and three from a random light switch by the back door. Prepare to search for light switches throughout your stay.
- The AC units worked very well. However, the master bedroom controls the AC for all the bedrooms upstairs too, and must be set at 72 to make sure the upstairs AC units actually shut off in the night. Until we figured this out, people upstairs slept in sweatshirts bought at Wal Mart and under house-provided fleece blankets to stay warm. So, set the master bedroom thermostat to 72 (not 70 or 71) and everyone will be fine.

DRIVING INSTRUCTIONS: This place is VERY hard to find when arriving the first time, particularly in the dark. (After finding it once, it's easy thereafter). DO AND READ THE FOLLOWING, AND YOU WILL ARRIVE AT THE PLACE MUCH FASTER THAN WE DID: Don't rely on GPS. There is no address marker at the road. The ReMax driving instructions/GPS will get you to Hoonani Road from the airport with no issues. On Hoonani Road, TURN LEFT AT THE SIGN FOR THE "HOLOHOLO GRILL". The driveway is pavers, not asphalt, and is across from a lookout point with a single row of parking spots.

BOTTOM LINE: We would recommend this place to others without hesitation. We'd also tell them to a) bring sweatshirts and b) write down/print the driving instructions above, to ensure overall maximum comfort and limited stress levels."

"Makalae in Kauai
This 5 Bdrm home was located near Poipu Beach. It was perfect for our family, with enough bedrooms and bathrooms. With the open concept with kitchen, dining room and living room, we had plenty of room to gather together for meals and visiting. "
Sep 24, 2022 - Linda C., Abington, MA

"Great place to stay for families or friends vacationing together
Very impressed with overall appearance-perfect for several guests who are vacationing together-it allows space for everyone. The only glitch we came upon was figuring out the air conditioning. Kitchen was well supplied with dishes, pans, utensils, etc. loved our stay!"

"Beautiful home in paradise
We brought the whole family Kauai to enjoy a week together. The home easily accommodated 8 adults. The location is fantastic with gorgeous ocean views. This home had many amenities including a gourmet kitchen and Weber babrbeque that allowed us to eat in for most of our trip. The house also included many of the beach toys and supplies needed for a day of play in the ocean. I would love to return to this house again."
Jun 03, 2022 - Tim K., San jose, CA

"Awesome location, great house for larger family
Perfect location to catch great views of ocean right from the balconies and the most beautiful sunsets from right across the street. Well maintained house, clean with well appointed kitchen. Our large family of 10 comfortably stayed and thoroughly enjoyed the house. Thank you. "

"Family Holiday
We've just returned from a wonderful multi-generational family gathering in Kauai and have decided that Makalae was the perfect holiday home for us. The proximity to beaches, sunset viewing, and a large grassy field for the kids to tear around on were all appreciated. The home is spacious and well equipped with everything we needed. Angela at ReMax was very responsive to any questions or requests that we had. We very much appreciate that we were allowed to rebook our stay after a postponement due to covid. "

"Beautiful home in Poipu
Our family of 10 fit just perfectly in this beautiful house. The ocean views are spectacular and the short stroll to the tidepools was a big hit with the grandkids. We hope to return again soon!"

"Fantastic Rental
The house was even better than described. It worked great for our family of 7 including a baby that go their own room. The garage was stocked with beach chairs, towels fins, snorkels boogie boards... we didnt have to buy a thing for the beach. The sheraton beach is a 5 minute walk, and we had some lunches and drinks there almost daily."

"Makalae Kauai Rental
Tha Makalae house we rented in Kauai was terrific. It had a great layout and was perfect for the 5 couples in out group. The 5 bed/bathrooms was great as everyone had their own space. Downfall was the 2 double beds. That did not deter from the rental. The porch was fantastic to watch the sunset and the kitchen was a dream. We would definitely recommend this house and rent it again if the opportunity arises. Less rain on this side of the island and up close and personal with the turtles. What a delight."
Sep 21, 2021 - Kevin S., Tempe, AZ

"Great place for a family of nine.
We stayed at this property in July'21. The property was well maintained and very spacious for a party of nine. The house had all the amenities needed for the week and more. The house is within walking distance of a nice beach and the kids enjoyed using the body boards provided. I would highly recommend this property and would book it again in the future. "

"Incredible Sunsets
We had a group of 8 in the house and had plenty of room. There was an issue with the front door that maintenance took care of the next day. Beautiful sunsets every night. Great location near sandy beaches, restaurants and shops."
Aug 15, 2021 - Arthur M., Stanwood, WA

"Loved the Makalae
We had the best time staying in the beautiful Makalae. It was centrally located to get to so many of our favorite beaches and places on Kauai. It was very clean and comfortable for our party of 7. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to a sandy beach; or you could walk across the street to see the sunset. The kitchen had everything we needed. A wonderful stay! "

"Makala’e Retreat
Amazing house. Hope to come back and stay here again next year."
Mar 17, 2019 - Raymond M., Sierra Vista, AZ

"Awesome House
We celebrated our 30th anniversary with our kids and friends. The house is perfect for large gatherings. We had 8 adults and an infant and had plenty of room. Great kitchen and BBQ to save a few bucks on meals. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The beaches are within a 10 minute walk or quick drive. Coolers, umbrellas, sand toys, body boards and a wagon to haul to the beach are available. Awesome sunsets!!"

"Great rental
Great for large parties. Location next to Holoholo resort was bonus. Issues with a/c and complexity of tv system only problems but still great rental."
Oct 17, 2018 - , Santa Ana, CA

"This is a great place to stay
We spent a week with kids and grandkids--six adults and four children, and we have only good things to say. The house was in good condition, there was plenty of room for all of us, the location was great and there was a very nice view of the ocean. We especially loved the large lanai, which had enough tables and chairs to accommodate all of us for meals or just visiting. We didn't need much help from the property manager, but they were pleasant and responsive when we did contact them. We heartily recommend this property."
Aug 31, 2018 - Lawrence V., Denver, CO

"Nice house
The house was nice, however when we arrived the entire porch and front door was covered in spider webs so it was difficult to enter the house. We thought since check in was so late there would've been an opportunity to clear those out to prepare for our arrival. The ensuite bathrooms were very nice. Not all of the bedrooms have connected bathrooms, the downstairs bedroom is close to the only shared bathroom on the main floor, which is used by everyone, so none of the adults in our party wanted that room. The house could use a second fridge or a larger fridge. With a party of 10 we had lots of food and found the fridge a challenge. The kitchen also lacked tupperware for leftovers, and didn't have basic spices (like salt) which was a bummer, but had tons of pots/pans which was appreciated. We also enjoyed having 2 dishwashers and 2 washers/dryer. The house also came with ample outdoor gear and a wagon to haul your stuff down to the beach. Nice location as you could always walk across the street and see sea turtles in the ocean. Be sure to wear bug spray on the patio as we got DESTROYED by mosquitos. The walls are fairly thin so if you will be hanging out on the patio at night, give some thought to who will have the suite that is connected to the porch, you can hear everything from the people outside. All in all a good stay - we always had enough places to sit and hang out with our large party. Thank you for offering the military discount. "

"Breathless !!
We came home to Kauai (Born and raised on Kauai) to buried our mom. My brother from Oklahoma with is 18 yr old son, my son and his family from Las Vegas and my husband I from Oahu and my brother Dominic from Hanapepe.
when we checked in. My family and I were Breathless having a 5 bedroom and 5 bath house with a large Kitchen and dining area and 2 living room. we like the outside patio as we did a cookout Friday night (Family bonding) and Saturday night (Family night).
This is just as once in a lifetime that I treated my family to an elegant vacation home. It was worth it!! and YES our family bonded.

Thank you

"Amazing Stay at Makalae
This is an outstanding home and we had an amazing time here! Perfect location to everything, beautiful views from all three upstairs bedrooms, and plenty of space for everyone. I stayed with my entire family, six adults and two young children, we were all very comfortable in the cozy soft beds and had enough space for privacy. Overall, a perfect place to stay, would definitely recommend and will probably try and stay here again. Only complaint isn't much of one, you can tell the home has been rented frequently and it needs some very minor tweaking (just a simple visit from a handyman) as many door handles, bathroom hardware, kitchen faucet, etc. are loose. Overall, very comfortable home with even better location! "
Nov 10, 2017 - Blake G., Playa Vista, CA

"Beautiful house!
There were 10 adults and we thoroughly enjoyed the house. It was everything in the description. And right across the street from the best snorkeling...lots of turtles and a monk seal. It is close to grocery stores and fun shops. A little walk, anout 1/2 mile, to a sandy beach. The house had everything we wanted! "

"Hawaii 5-0 birthday celebration.
We had a great time at the Makale. We were 10 adults and the house having 5 bedrooms worked out very well. The house is in a great location and is very well equipped. Luxurious with many nice amenities although there are a few things that now require some attention. Overall highly recommend the Makale. "

"Fabulous Home
Our family of 7 adults spent an amazing Christmas staying in Makalae. I needn't have worried about cooking Christmas dinner - the kitchen is a chef's dream and the 2 dishwashers make cleaning up a breeze. We gathered each morning on the lanai for breakfast to plan our day. There is excellent snorkeling at Koala Landing, a 3 min walk. We saw sea turtles in the rocky cove across the street and enjoyed the sandy beach which was a 10 min walk. Each of the 5 bedrooms was spacious with its own bathroom. The garage is stocked with beach equipment, and another big plus for a large family were the 2 washers and dryers ! We hope to return again to the beautiful home in the future. "
Jan 02, 2017 - Janet V., Santa Ana, CA

"Family vacation
Great location and a wonderful house. Two complaints. One is that they photo shopped out the telephone pole and wires in the web site pictures but no big deal. The other was that one of the showers was not operable. I had to go to the hardware store to buy an Allen wrench to fix it. I was told I would be reimbursed but haven't been yet."

"A Perfect Place for a Family Reunion
You can not find a better place to enjoy Hawaii as a family. With 5 bedrooms, each with their own bath, our family had enough space to spread out and enjoy some privacy amidst the family reunion. The upper floors have a dynamic view of the ocean. The house includes two high-end washer and dryers and two dishwashers which for a family of 10 adults was a must! The large stovetop even includes a griddle for a morning of pancakes. There are two large living areas, one up and one down, with large screen televisions in both. The garage is full of boogie boards, snorkel gear, children's reef-runners, beach chairs, umbrellas, and even a nice rolling cooler. There is a gas grill on the deck. The only drawback to the house is the condos being built right along the driveway; however, they do not obscure the view, and we found the noise indistinguishable when in the house with the air conditioner running. The workers are not there on the weekend and leave at the end of the day. We were out having fun most of the time they were working, so no one complained in our party about it at all. This house is built for a family. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did."
Sep 13, 2015 - Tammy F., Aloha, OR

"Wonderful family retreat!
Excellent place to stay for vacation. Family had plenty of room to have their own space (with bedrooms and separate bathrooms). It would have been better if refrig worked better (needed to be colder and ice maker did not work). Training on how to work AC might have been helpful...we had no idea that master bedroom controlled all AC in other bedrooms until we called property management. You made it easy to get key with lockbox. Thank you for a nice place to stay!"
