Poipu House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

3/1/15 Note: A single family house has started construction on 3/1/15 on the adjacent lot. As a result, we are offering a 10% discount in the rate until 6/13/15. The contractor has assured us that they will not be working weekends, that they will not begin work before 8am, that they usually quit working by 3pm, and that they will curtail loud music. The loud part of the construction should be complete by May. So, if your vacation plans include getting up and getting out to see Kauai, then this is the deal for you! By the time you return from your daily activity, everything should be quiet.

Luxury Kauai Rental Vacation Home at Poipu Beach.

The first sounds from new guests to AHE LANI are oohs and aahs. They love the decoration and furnishing. The house design brings families together to talk and bond. The location gives them plenty of choices. Look for yourself -- visit the guestbook to see how much everyone loves their vacation in Ahe Lani.

AHE LANI (Heavenly Breeze) is a new (2005) two bedroom/two bathroom private luxurious Kauai rental vacation home in sunny Poipu, Kauai surrounded by lush foliage. Here you will find quality of design and decorations at a value price.

Step into old Hawaii in a new beach house! As you enter, imagine yourself as a turn of the century plantation manager relaxing in the spacious living room of this plantation-style Kauai rental vacation home overlooking the tropical garden.

Before dinner, you and your family might enjoy the early evening sipping cocktails on the large covered lanai. Or imagine how your family might 'talk story' at the comfortable dining table as the meals were prepared in this modern fully-equipped kitchen.

The extensive use of natural wood trim and the beautiful South Pacific decor of this Kauai rental vacation home make this enchanting nostalgia come true for you and your family.

Down the hall are two large bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom. The master suite has a king-size bed and beautiful tropical bedroom furniture. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted to a king bed and bamboo headboards. Both bedrooms have ample closet space, and all the beds are firm and plush. Outside every window is tropical greenery. There are sleeping arrangements for up to four people.

This Kauai vacation rental home is complete with a laundry room with washer and dryer.

BIGGER FAMILY? We own two other Kauai rental vacation homes. AKALA PUA, is a beautiful new three bedroom/three bathroom Poipu vacation rental home (Vrbo #57013). For even larger families, we also own a Kauai rental vacation home named MALUHIA MA KA HONUA, which has three bedrooms/four bathrooms and is located at Poipu Beach Park (Vrbo #3233).

About The Owner

Aloha from Jim and Valorie Wisda. We recently moved to Scottsdale, Arizona from Palos Verdes Estates, California where we raised a wonderful son and daughter. We have been coming to Poipu since 1970 and no matter how often we travel to other places or countries we visit, like this picture in Thailand, we always look forward to coming back to Poipu several times a year.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Poipu

We bought the lot a few years after hurricane Iniki while the cost of lots was still low because it offered us the opportunity to help vacationers experience a really wonderful house in a good location at an affordable rent. This house is a couple of houses removed from the water, and the rent is less than half of those houses less than 100 yards away! This is really one of the best values in Poipu. It is a great house in a very good location at a fair and affordable rent.

What makes this house unique

Lushly landscaped yard. Privacy.

Best of all, the open living area promotes family gatherings with places to sit and 'talk story', but with plenty of room for everyone to have adequate space.

Guestbook comments from the manager

From the guestbook: We thoroughly enjoyed staying in your cottage. Thank you for opening up your home so that mainland folks like us can experience this beautiful place on earth. We look forward to visiting again! If you are ever in the Reno area we'd love to have you visit as our guests. Mahalo.

Last minute reservation for 3 nights.

  • 5 of 5

I and my wife, daughter, son-in-law, and infant grandson booked this unit as a last minute addition to the beginning of our stay on Kauai rather than book a hotel room. We decided to come over 3 days early until the arrival of our son and his family. After three days we moved to another house near the Sheraton for the remaining 11 days of our trip. I am not one to give glowing or flowery reviews, but I cannot say enough good about the property and ESPECIALLY the owners. We were contacted about a week or more before our arrival date and informed that there would be construction going on next door and that he was totally unaware that it was going to start. They offered a full refund with no penalties if we wished to cancel. If we did stay, a discount on the cost of our stay would be applied when damage deposit was refunded. We went ahead and stayed and the construction was no problem with us at all. In fact we had more noise at the house we moved to after this rental as it backed up to Poipu Rd. We were wishing we were back at this beautiful and secluded location. Although beach access is not direct and you must walk around to get there, we did not find this a problem. Baby Beach is a great place to take young children. We had an infant with us and if we had too much to carry, we simply drove around. There was never a problem finding a parking place. The property is beautifully decorated and extremely well maintained. My wife and I are from a small and remote commercial fishing town in Alaska of around 1800 population. Besides the beauty of the mountains and the sea, what makes us really love it here are the people. Although I have never met these owners or even talked to them on the phone I feel they are like the citizens of our town. Honest and caring. I just want to say thanks and that we WILL be doing business with you again.

a very pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

We just spent 5 nights at Ahe Lani. Very pleasant escape from the first rain in San Francisco for months!! We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids (age 6 and 8).

Overall we had a great trip to Kauai and enjoyed our stay in Ahe Lani very much.


- very spacious house. Big bedrooms and bathrooms. YOu can easily fit 2 more people.

- good location. Walking distance (5 mins max with kids) from several beaches and the Kukui'ula shopping village. The village has several restaurant and a very nice but pricey grocery shop.

- Spouting horn is 2 miles....pleasant walk if you fancy that.

- kitchen is adequately stocked with cooking pot and pans.

- beach towel and an array of boogie boards were a welcome surprise

- the house is very well maintained.

- good and efficient communication with Owner and rental agency.


- the house is on the back of a larger, street facing unit, therefore it does feel a bit enclosed. Fundamentally you are surrounded by other properties, though you have a shared green space on the front (as per pics). The access is via a path on the side of the main house.

- we found the house a bit lacking natural light, which may have been due to the wintery time of the year we visited.

We did enjoy our stay. The cons are merely to paint a full picture not to detract from the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words and we are happy you had a great vacation. The master bedroom and living room each have windows and/or sliding doors on three sides for ventilation, but the house is surrounded by Areca Palm groves and other tropical plants (to insure privacy) which keep some of the natural light out.

A tiny piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so impeccably well-kept. It included everything one would want or need in the kitchen. These owners go way above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and even included extra necessities such as shampoo, hand soap and more! We can't wait to come back. Thank you!!

Perfect South Shore Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Ahe Lani and it's location!

The home itself is a tropical retreat, not to mention comfortable, immaculately clean, and convenient. We knew, based on previous reviews, that it would be well stocked and accommodating, but to actually be there and see it for ourselves was more than a pleasant surprise. The landscaping on the property was more than adequate to create a sense of privacy.

Ahe Lani's location was equally pleasing. We snorkeled, fished, watched sunsets, took walks, and dined in the surrounding areas, such as, Baby Beach, Lawai Beach, Poipu Beach, Spouting Horn, the Shops at Kukui'ula, and so much more. Close by was Old Koloa Town, where we frequented it's grocery stores, shops and eateries. We highly recommend Koloa Deli, they have really good sandwiches for picnics on the go. The shaved ice stand in Koloa was also a favorite, we had tried Uncle's in Poipu and Ono Ono in Kapaa, too.

Given that we had traveled to many parts of the island, from the Napali Coast to the North Shore, we feel Ahe Lani was the perfect home to call our base. Each day's drive was a scenic adventure of it's own.

Thank you, Wisda's for helping to make our 20th wedding anniversary worry free and that much more memorable.

Second stay--Still amazing

  • 5 of 5

Last year I stayed with some friends...this time with family. Either way, it's an awesome place to be. My parents kept (rightly) gushing about how well-stocked the house was. No need to worry about kitchen incidentals, beach towels etc. as it's all waiting for you at the house.

Lots of fans to supplement the island breeze and a fab location with good eating/shopping/beaches within walking distance. Once again, we ventured all over the island and no matter where we went, we kept commenting on how happy we were with our location and the pleasures of the house. Well worth the repeat visit (and I may just have to plan a third).

Running the Kauai Marathon? You want to stay here.

  • 5 of 5

Ahe Lani has everything you need and more. Comfortable beds? Check. Clean, spacious bathrooms? Check. Fully stocked kitchen? Check. Room for your friends to come over for a drink after the run? Check. Peaceful and private when your friends leave? Check. All that and you can walk to the marathon start line.

My husband and I spent 5 days at Ahe Lani when he ran the full marathon and I ran the half last September. We had never been to Kauai before, so we did some searching on the internet for places to stay. We looked at condos, hotels, and VRBOs and ended picking Ahe Lani.

Ahe Lani is the smaller house on a two-home lot. It is set back from the road on a neatly landscaped, lush lawn, lined with plumeria flowers and tropical trees. The house is tastefully decorated in a relaxed and classy island style. When you enter, there is a small foyer to leave your shoes, then you walk into an open kitchen and living room. Down the hall, there is a spacious bedroom with two twin beds and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a king bed and private bathroom. A sheltered lanai with a dining table and chairs looks out onto the yard. The windows are covered with wood shutters that open to let in the breeze.

The location is ideal for marathoners -- we walked to the start line in the morning and walked home after the run. But it is just as perfect for families, honeymooners, anyone really. Beaches, shopping, and the fancy hotels in Poipu are all short walks away. The house is on a main road at the edge of a quiet residential neighborhood. After day or two, you feel like this is your home.

In fact, we treated the house like it was ours. We used the stove, the outdoor grill, the dishwasher, the boogie boards and beach towels, washer and dryer. We even broke the blender (the owners were very gracious about it). My sister and her husband stayed 2 nights with their baby, and the house accommodated all of us comfortably. As I write this and think about our time at Ahe Lani, those 5 days felt like a dream; we were so comfortable, relaxed, and happy there. It was just perfect for us.

When you walk the two minutes from Ahe Lani to the Beach House restaurant, you see a number of uninspired condo buildings lining the road, jammed together with their crowded patios, loud tourists, and premium prices. You will be so happy to have your own private paradise and to have paid a lot less for it. Save that money for a post-run massage and your next trip to Kauai

Poipu Beach Park, rated #1 beach in America by the travel channel is nearby. Baby Beach and Lawai Beach are within four minutes walk. This is snorkeling, surfing, bodysurfing, and sunbathing heaven. Spouting Horn blowhole is at the end of Lawai Road, as is the National Tropical Botanical Gardens. Restaurants abound in Poipu, ranging from gourmet to hamburger stand. In the evenings, entertainment can be found at Keoki's Paradise and the Hyatt Regency Resort. Most of all, Kauai is home to nature lovers who want to relax and explore the beauty of the island; to see the myriad waterfalls and rainbows; to sail aboard a catamaran to the breathtaking Napali Coast; to watch the whales and dolphins; maybe kayak a river and hike to a secret waterfall; or maybe just read a good book.
