Salt Pond : Named for its traditional Hawaiian salt collecting ponds, this beach is protected by an outside reef with potential good winter snorkeling, fishing and swimming

The park also offers roughly 45 miles of the state's finest hiking trails.

  • Elwood and Momi were great hosts although I barely got a chance to talk to them because we were out of the house most of the time. We had everything we needed and the space was a great launching point for exploring Polihale Beach, Waimea Canyon, and Poipu.

  • I had a fantastic stay at the cabin with Candis and Elwood. They were both very friendly and helpful and I really liked that the cabin was a bit tucked away from the hustle and bustle.
    I stayed 5 nights and had an awesome room! Really big with TV and aircon (which I didn't need). The bed was great, slept really well. Even the roosters in the morning couldn't keep me from sleeping (earplugs!!) ;)
    Thanks you guys, will definitely recommend your lovely home. Cheers for having me!
