Eleele Reviews

3 reviews
Living in Eleele for almost 10 years have been a wonderful, beautiful, and peaceful. I recommend it to anyone who is planning on making the island of Kauai their home. What I would like to see change or improved is the main park near the Eleele Elementary School. I know a plethora of people who enjoys being at the park with their children. Although the park is humongous, there is only two things there, a basketball court and a small playground. It will be even more enjoyable for the families and if there were more activities for the kids to do there such as: skate park, bigger playground, baseball fields etc. This will certainly attract more families and different age groups; that change will certainly be a sight to see.

Eleele is a small town with lots of charm. Close to beaches, schools, churches and shopping. It's mostly residential but with lots of business and industrial options. My favorite part is probably the community involvement with the kids, sports and arts.
I love Eleele. This is a quiet town on the west side of Kaua'i. Every one is very friendly and there are lots of Amenities.
