Welcome to 'Hale Pili Aloha' the 'House of Close Friends'. Our lovely cottage exudes the warmth and calm that travelers to Kauai return time and again to experience. Situated between Turtle Cove (at Whalers Cove) and Baby Beach, our home is located in a small friendly neighborhood that runs along the southernmost coast of Poipu. The cottage has lovely gardens front and back, deck and BBQ area. There are bicycles, boogie boards, snorkel and beach gear available for your enjoyment.
The interior is bright and newly decorated in a casually elegant style with Asian antiques and Hawaiian decorative items. The kitchen and baths are updated. The beds and linens are very high quality. The six sets of French doors allow the bird songs, trade winds and fragrant ocean breezes to filter through the home.
The cottage is within walking distance or a very short drive to all the wonders of the Poipu area. Our location is the perfect combination of privacy (away from the denser vacation areas) and access to sun and fun. In the immediate area you will find terrific dining and shopping at the new Kukuiula Shopping Center, superb snorkeling, the best beaches, and sunrise/sunset giant turtle watching. Enjoy an envigorating morning walk along the coast after your first cup of island coffee!
The home is a perfect romantic retreat for a couple yet is large enough for two couples or a small family. Allow us to welcome you to our 'House of Close Friends'...you will love your stay!

We are a family of three in Northern California.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
We love the sunny Poipu area on the beautiful 'Garden Isle'. It has a laid back comfortable feeling combined with some of the most beautiful beaches on the Hawaiian islands. Great snorkeling, wonderful hiking trails and sparkling seas, skies and stars make for a vacation dream.
This is the consumate island cottage without the typical 'rental' feel. It is open, airy and well decorated without being fussy. Our home is very well kept, with regular gardening and pest control services and a top notch cleaning service. It has a beautiful garden front and back as well as a deck for sunning and dining. Our street is very quiet. We are one block from lovely Baby Beach and Turtle Cove. We are within a couple minutes of everything and are happy to share our suggestions for area highlights!
Thanks to our family, who were the direct renters, we were guests at this home for three days in February and March, and several weeks later we STILL miss it. Perfectly sized for families or small groups, wonderfully situated and beautifully appointed. My only qualm was the lack of air conditioning throughout the house, which we believe would be a smart addition ... but on the other hand, we enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and the feeling of fresh air along with the tranquil environment. Especially for those who don't require a pool for every day use, this is a fantastic little home. We have always preferred to stay at resort hotels, but after our stay here, we are re-evaluating our position, as we followed up three nights here with two nights at a local five-star resort ... and decided that the feeling of comfort and tranquility we had at Hale Pili Aloha just could not be beat!
It was love at first sight! While pictures show how lovely this home is, they do not do it justice. It is so much better in person. Hale Pili Aloha is the absolute perfect Hawaiian vacation home! Renting a private home for the first time, we weren't sure how we'd like it! But it was heavenly and the owners are just delightful! We have been to Kauai nearly a dozen times and this lovely cottage is by far our new favorite place to stay on the island! We stayed for 11 wonderful days and we were not ready to leave the cottage or the island when the time came!
As soon as we entered this gorgeous cottage, I felt like I had come home! The cottage is clean, comfy, decorated beautifully, like out of Pottery Barn, and gives a sense of calm and a feeling of "home!" Everything you could possibly need was supplied! The location is ideal - close to beaches, shopping, and restaurants but in a quiet neighborhood.
We plan to return to Kauai next winter and I am keeping my fingers crossed that this beautiful cottage will be available once again!
Hale Pili Aloha is the perfect Hawaiian getaway. My husband and I stayed for 12 wonderful days and as soon as I walked in the door I felt I had come home.The cottage is clean and beautifully appointed, situated in a quiet neighbourhood about a 3 minute walk to Baby Beach and a short drive to Poipu Beach. We used the bikes to ride to the blowhole and walked to the nearby mall for dinner and shopping, very convenient. I wish I could find a little cottage just like Hale Pili Aloha and keep it for mysel! We will, hopefully, return soon.
We stayed here with our two young boys (3 and 1) and it was the perfect place to stay! The house was clean upon arrival and the owner was wonderful to deal with. We loved the neighbourhood it was in- walking distance to a great beach for kids and lots of shops close by. The pictures do not do the house justice- it is like living in a Pottery Barn catalogue! We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend the home!
We had a fabulous stay in this little blue cottage, the location is perfect, close to some beautiful beaches and awesome restaurants...So relaxing you feel like you're miles away from everything yet it feels like home..I would highly recommend this little piece of paradise to anyone. Already thinking of our return trip.
Our family had a wonderful stay at this beautiful and immaculate cottage. EVERYTHING was anticipated for lodging and cooking needs; and the abundant beach-going amenities were a real plus! Very quiet neighborhood, and yet so close to the beaches. Leal was an absolute pleasure to work with, and all of our needs were met and then some! Mahalo for sharing your lovely vacation home!
