Located on the scenic North shore of Kauai, in Kilauea at the doorstep of the luxurious Princeville Resort lies Hale Mana, a three acre multi-million dollar private estate. Hawaiian for "house of spiritual awakening" Hale Mana does not disappoint.

This plantation style home is perched high on a bluff with pristine, 360-degree views of the ocean, valley, mountains and river below. The valley itself is home to numerous ancient "heiaus" or "places of worship," so sacred only the high priests and chieftains were allowed. It is also home to a National Wildlife Refuge protecting rare and endangered avian species. During the day tropicbirds, frigates, albatross, and nenes circle high above the home as if to form a halo. And at nightfall, under a giant dome of starry wilderness, you can drift off to sleep to the melody of the nearby waterfalls. One of the most unique properties in the world - Kauai at its best!

All told, Kauai is NOT the hustle-bustle of Honolulu or the touristy madness of Maui. To visit Kauai and Hale Mana is to travel back in time to a bygone era, to a more peaceful and provincial existence, where words like on-ramps, freeways, and smog have yet to taint the universal consciousness. It’s a santuary where skyscrapers are replaced by palm trees and busy intersections with one-lane bridges. And following closely in step are the islands most precious natural resource... its' people. For them, words like community, family and neighbor are still spoken with reverence. Mainlanders call this warm phenomenon the "Aloha Spirit" and it’s as certain to welcome and embrace you at Hala Mana as are the prevailing trade winds.

The property was awesome... the view of the mountains, stream, and ocean was amazing! Seeing and hearing the falls was equally outstanding! The house itself was great for our party, and the location is close to Princeville for easy access to the north and east areas of the island.

Hale Mana was a beautiful home, private yet close enough to town. Loved the view of the ocean and the sound of the stream located behind the house. Would recommend this home.

We were looking for a special unforgettable rental home for a special occasion and found this home on VRBO. The location was great and very private, far away from the main roads but not too far to be inconvenient. The scenery was spectacular no matter where you looked. There is a beautiful waterfall that can be viewed from the bathtub in the master bathroom suite and from a balcony overlooking the waterfall and river. In the other direction you can see the ocean and lush tropical foliage. If you are looking for beach front, this is not the place for you.

The bedrooms were spacious and well decorated, along with the living and dining rooms. The kitchen has just about everything you can ask for for a place to cook away from home and a newer Webber barbecue by the outdoor shower.

The owners have plenty of towels and beach chairs available for use, along with an ice chest which came in handy many times. There is an outdoor shower that is great for using when you return from the beach to get any loose sand off, or just to use for a relaxing shower.

If I had to provide any potentially negative comments, I would only say the home does not have air conditioning so yo are dependent on the trade-winds to cool the house and night. For the most part we were very comfortable, but on a couple of nights it was a bit muggy as the trade-winds had dies down due to some abnormal conditions. Definitely not a deal breaker for us.

If I were to provide any recommendation to the owners, I would suggest adding an infinity edge pool facing the beach if it is possible. I'm guessing due to the makeup of the ground underneath, it might be extremely difficult to excavate for a pool, but it would be beautiful.
Manager response on 2017-09-19 - Response from Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers
Aloha! Thank you so much for your excellent review and suggestions! We are so glad you were able to enjoy the surrounding scenery of waterfalls and lush greenery, while still having a view of the ocean. It sounds like you were able to make use of the amenities associated with this home and had everything you needed to enjoy a day at the beach or an evening at home. This summer has been very warm, but we are happy to hear that the lack of air conditioning didn’t take away from your positive experience. We appreciate you being such pleasant house guests and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

We spent most of our 8 day vacation at the house- there was no place on the island more beautiful or peaceful. We received magnificent sunrises from the ocean, rainbows, tropical birds swooping down Kilauea falls, brilliant stars and moonrises, deep red sunsets over the mountains, and always the gentle roar of the waterfalls below. As for the house itself, extraordinary kitchen for cooking all meals, plenty of space/privacy for many guests, comfortable furniture, lovely art and other design touches make this house feel like home- only on a waterfall. In Hawaii. Neal and Barbara were simply wonderful, patient and informative and welcoming. Easy access from here to lots of private beaches, excellent dining, shopping, etc, right in Kilauea. Truly, we never needed to drive more than 10-15 minutes for something spectacular. Thank you for the sweetest, most peaceful vacation we have ever experienced. We cannot wait to be in this home again very soon!

Beautiful views, cool breezes, quiet and private--Hale Mana is a perfect hideaway. It's located near great beaches, hiking and dining but the property is so beautiful you will have to force yourself to leave even for a few hours! The house is clean and bright and stocked with beach towels, chairs and boogie boards. The hosts were really helpful and friendly. We can't wait to go back!

We had everything we could possibly need in a spotless house on an incredible property. Taking an outdoor shower was a highlight for all of us. The sounds of thousands of birds in the morning mixed with the rushing waterfall below was intoxicating. The owners met us when we got there and were very helpful and super nice! We will definitely be back!

Every thing was very nice and clean with great views! After staying there it was not ideal for our group. We planed to golf at Princeville golf course only to find out it is closed and has been for some time so we had to do a lot of driving to other course's to play a little remote for us. If you like a nice quite getaway this is the place for you. I would not recommend this place for small children as it has a lot of steep drop-offs in to a gorge. Breath taken views of the river and waterfalls though.
Manager response on 2016-01-19 - Response from Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers
Aloha Bob! Thanks for sharing your feedback. We are sorry that you were not aware that the Prince course was closed. We hope that the renovations to the course will be complete soon and back open for business! There is another course located in Princeville called the Makai course that remains open. Glad you enjoyed the views! The Hawaii Life Team

Group of five friends rented this beautiful home for a full week of relaxation. This home did not dissapiont. Our first two days, we didn't even feel the need to venture from home. The house is situated on a bluff with a waterfall on one side and the ocean on the other! We love to cook; so only thing I would add are measuring cups and spoons.

From the moment we decided to book this property, the owner was in contact with emails and information. The home was even more than we were expecting. Very private, a waterfall in your back yard, equipped with lawn chairs and beach towels, away from town, yet close to town for groceries, etc. Beautiful views from every room, Definitely recommend this property!!

After five great days in a Maui beachfront condo, our two couples met up with another two couples from our hometown at Hale Mana. The property was spectacular in every way. Breathtaking views from every direction to go along with likely the finest home on Kauai. Made us wish we had not booked so many activities because it was hard to leave this property each day. The owners, Neal and Barbara met us upon arrival and we were impressed with their enthusiasm and history of the property. A great start to our Kauai vacation where we did the Napali sunset cruise, went tubing on the irrigation canals, and helicopter tour with Jack Harter. We hated to leave but headed for another vacation home on Oahu when disaster struck. We no sooner arrived at the property when we received word that twin tornados struck our town in Coal City, IL and our house was destroyed and another couple's house was heavily damaged. The good news was that nobody was hurt although our two adult sons were in the house with our dog "Cooper". We then immediately booked flights after a nightmare experience with American Airlines that consisted of a four hour delay, then we sat on the plane for another three hours with mechanical problems before we departed. Thank you AA. We will always have pleasant thoughts of Hale Mana and Kauai. And it will truly be a vacation we will always remember.

Hale Mana is an unbelievable place, with views so amazing, it's almost spiritual. House is tucked away at the edge of a cliff overlooking a waterfall on one side with views of the ocean on the other.
Owners Neal and Barbara were there to greet us when we arrived. They kept the house spotless.
Kristine, the Concierge at Hawaii Life Real Estate deserves special kudos for assisting us with bookings for a jam-packed itinerary, all completely paid for before we arrived.
House is close to Princeville and Hanalei Bay.
I would definitely come back, this time for an extra week!

I love the North Shore. We've been to Kauai a few times and loved the Hale Mana. I've lived in homes with incredible views so I knew the pics wouldn't do this property justice. They didn't. Watching the birds fly up out of the trees early every morning was fantastic. A great place to wake up and get going for the day and fantastic place to come home and stare at the starry nights.

On some reviews it warned parents with toddlers. We had a little one who celebrated her first birthday here. She is walk-crawling fast and another 18 mos. old girl who walks quite quickly. We all came from cities and believed our kids would no sooner jump off a cliff as they would run into a busy street. Course that would be a respected personal decision for each parent. Just giving my experience.

Neal the owner was there when we arrived washing the windows 'cause it rained the night before. They take pride in their home and live there when not renting it out.

The Concierge Eric, was helpful and welcoming. He got us tickets to an event that was sold out and a crib. I called the owner twice to ask questions and he was friendly and helpful.

If we didn't love travelling to different places around the globe, I'd say we definitely would be back. If we do hit this island again, it'd be great to stay here and make the owners an offer to buy it from them.

This place was happened to be very hot the week we were there, but the fans seemed to do the trick - the view of the waterfall is stunning and the yard is awesome! The lawn is TAKEN OVER by frogs every night -very interesting! The owner was very helpful - though he showed up with two cars of people 30 minutes before our check out(9:30 w a 10 am departure) , We have never had that happen before. It made departure and property goodbyes for the kids and us very uncomfortable - a woman was literally standing in driveway watching us pack the cars. Really wish that had not happened - he fired up a lawn mower at 9:40 - shocked. Other than that - perfection!!

We love Hale Mana. We were here in February of this year and immediately made plans to come back in May. The grounds are so beautiful and relaxing, spectacular views in every direction, and a very spacious, well appointed house that is perfectly situated to take advantage of the natural beauty outside. Neal and Barbara are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and really make it their goal to make their guests feel welcome. I am planning another temp here again in January and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Two adults and four adventurous children descended upon Hale Mana for a week and it truly lived up to our expectations. The location, views and layout of the home were all perfect and it provided an ideal base for us to explore the North Coast during the day, yet retire to rest and recharge during the evening. The only comments I have for improvement would be to update the kitchen crockery, glasses and cutlery which are old and not sufficient for a family of this size. Also, the information about hiking to the waterfall on the property should be updated, since this is not available for renters according to the neighbors. If we had the chance, we would return. Thank you to the owners for being so welcoming and accommodating during our stay.

Despite the incredible beauty of the island regardless of where you go - this home is situated in a location that is unsurpassed. To wake up to picturesque sunrises and relax before you retire on the lanai to spectacular sunsets is simply uncomparable. If you’ve never been to the island, this is where every vision you’ve had of Hawaii comes to pass. From lush tropical surroundings, the sounds of the waterfall to gazing out to the ocean, it’s truly amazing. While the home and property are very private, there are great snorkeling beaches within minutes of the home and shopping and dining is conveniently located. Within a short drive you can find what you need, and then quickly zip back to the seclusion and beauty of the property. The home is well appointed and clean with windows lining every room so as not to impede your view. The convenience of having a washer, dryer, kitchen and multiple bathrooms with plenty of room for a family or two is fantastic. Who wants to wake up to battle crowds for breakfast when you can slide into the kitchen and grab what you want. Even having snacks on hand for the kids was a plus. And leaving the island with clean clothes packed away made unpacking at home a breeze. We prepared beautiful meals with local products from the farmer’s markets and local groceries and topped our days off with incredible ‘shave ice’ with delicious ice cream on the bottom or a homemade sugar cone with homemade ice cream from various local spots down the road. The owners were extremely helpful with suggestions and guidance regarding various areas of the island - and we met them briefly as we were leaving. Wonderful people! This is definitely the way to enjoy the beauty and serenity of Kauai and we look forward to getting back to do it again. THANK YOU so much Neal and Barbara & Hawaii Life for the most wonderful family vacation we’ve had!

Even though we had seen pictures online of Hale Mana, we were still blown away by the spectacular setting, with views of valley waterfalls on one side and the ocean on the other. It was as peaceful as could be (apart from regular check-ins by all the roosters)and we loved to sit each morning and evening with our coffee/wine respectively.
The house itself worked well for our party of 5 (3 adults, two teens)and was nicely laid out.
The biggest criticism would be that the bathrooms and kitchen need updating and some of the fixtures are antiquated.On a few occasions bedroom door handles fell off in our hands with very little pressure.
We loved the location in Kilauea and enjoyed the shops and beaches that were only a few minutes away.
Overall it was a great experience and the owners were terrific to deal with.

The best part of staying at Hale Mana is, without question, the View!!! We travelled the whole island and we are hard pressed to find a better view than any that are visible from the complete property of Hale Mana. The biggest inconvienience was the drive for groceries . The local shopping consists of a convenience store attached to the Shell station and a small organic market and another market that mostly had liquor. Princeville is the nearest grocery store which is a good 10 minute drive. It didn't bother us much though, as we live in the country and are used to driving for all the conveniences. We have rented property twice before. Each time we rent we gain something and lose something. This time we gained the view but lost the access to A)beaches B)grocery stores C)pool or hottub, but again, each is within a 10 - 15 minute drive. This property is not suitable for families with young children as the steep valley below would be a safety concern. I also don't think it would be a great location for younger people/couples who like to be on top of all the action. Our group consisted of 7 adults with an age range of 44 - 53. It was a great property for our age group. Some upgrading could be around the corner for the owners (ie/ Solid door needs to be put on the one guest bedroom instead of louvered door and doors needs to be installed on the bathroom between the other two guest rooms (there is a door for privacy to the hallway but no privacy in the bathroom for the guests of the two bedrooms). We got an extension to stay until noon on our departure day and we should have made arrangements for a late afternoon departure. Our flight didn't leave until 9:30 pm. and it would have been nice to have somewhere to stay the last day. Overall , we are very pleased with the property and would recommend it to others.

We once again have had a great vacation thanks to the various VRBO rentals. This is our fourth and perhaps best. The owners were very attentive and provided everything we could have wanted. the home is remarkable. Setting on the porch overlooking the falls and stream almost makes you want to stay right there and ignore the rest of Hawaii. It was truly an experience by itself.

Hale Mana is a very special place to unwind and see the natural beauty of Kauai. Great location with ocean views and your very own waterfalls. We spent many hours out on the deck listening to the sound of the water and watching the stars. It was very hard to leave this place. Very private & beautifully landscaped.

Beautiful, serene, peaceful, vibrant, sounds, colors, scents of Kauai. We could not have found a more special place to stay. Sleeping to the sounds of the waterfalls outside the master suite, seeing tons of stars even while laying in bed, and a view that is unbelievably beautiful from every single room in the house. Soft Egyptian cotton sheets, very well equipped kitchen, ceiling fans and breezes that make air conditioning unnecessary, owners who are friendly, helpful, and attentive when needed, a location that is close to many, many different beaches / shopping areas, and beauty beyond belief, and a home that makes you feel like you've just won the lottery! We cannot express what an awesome property this is!

This was our second trip to Kauai and we've now procalimed Kauai as our favorite island and Hale Mana will be our first choice of where we stay. The home was extremely comfortable for my family of 8. The views were unreal! Waking up and having coffee on the beautiful wrap around lanai, and sleeping at night to the sound of the waterfalls just couldn't be any better! We found the location to be perfect because we were able to explore the many beaches and take part in the many activities offered near here. But afterwards coming back was so relaxing and peaceful. The whole house had everything we needed. Neal came by to greet us and was very helpful with suggestions on where to go around the island. My family proclaimed this "Best Vacation Ever". We will surely return!

This house is truly wonderful - on a slice of property that is simply unbelievable. We almost wish Kauai did not have so much to offer so that we could have spent more time just enjoying the sensational views and ocean breezes that this house has to offer. The house itself is quite lovely and comfortable - but the real attraction is the 360 degree views of the ocean and the river that surrounds the house. I am pretty picky when it comes to vacation accommodations - pretty much a Four Seasons
kind of gal - and this house is one I would easily rebook. Finally - the owners are just delightful and make you feel as if they are happy to share their incredible home with you. If you can book !
