Hale Nene Poipu is named for the wild, Hawaiian geese that gather near the lake. The over 3000 sq ft house is particularly airy and light and sits on the gentle greens of the Kiahuna golf course. The house faces South-West toward the ocean and sunsets so the evening light can extend into the living area. The upper-story living space with retractable glass doors which open up to the covered lanai also allow for the gentle tradewinds to breeze through the stone-floored living areas, lined with windows. The in-laid wood, vaulted ceilings reflect a Hawaiian home aesthetic and also provide a glow of soffit lighting in the evening hours. The home is on the Kiahuna golf course, designed Robert Trent Jones Jr. and one of eight world-class courses on Kauai which have views of the open sea and lush greenery that defines Kauai. Hale Nene Poipu is a quiet refuge surrounded by the course, but it is also in the heart of the Poipu, with its pretty beaches, restaurants, boutiques, spas & golf.
The home is a mile from the beach and 1.25 mile to Poipu beach; beach chairs, towels and umbrellas are provided for beach comfort. Amenities within walking distance : 3/4 of a mile from the house is the Poipu Shopping Village, which has island-theme boutiques and galleries, as well as a Starbuck's Coffee; a Roy's Restaurant with a bar looking out over the courtyard and fusion Hawaiian cuisine; Keoki's Paradise, a fun island/tiki torch garden restaurant; art galleries; a general store with many basic groceries and island items such as grass mats and Kona coffee, the addictive Puka Dog stand with its fresh lemonade; Kauai-made gelato shop; surfing clothing stores and free Hula shows on a shaded, outdoor stage put on by the local hula school.

We are working professionals who live in Anchorage, Alaska. After 20 years of camping and squeezing into a condo on Kauai, we bought Hale Nene Poipu as our vacation home to escape the cold Alaska winter and to enjoy Kauai in a more spacious, private and luxurious setting. We have two boys who spend hours in the pool and continue their boogie boarding and snorkeling adventures around the Poipu area. We like to be busy, but also appreciate privacy and the an expansive, peaceful view, so this property really appealed to us. On-island, we are fortunate to work with a tight-knit group of trusted tradespeople who take excellent care of our home and our guests. Aloha!
Elise purchased this house in 2011
Why Elise chose Poipu
Kauai is well-known for it's tropical beauty; one friend noted it was like a theme park - with fragrant flowers in the breeze, rainbows, and white sand beaches. It is also a mellow island with a distinct tropical feel, but with plenty of restaurants, shopping, snorkeling, hiking and biking to keep us busy. Hale Nene Poipu appealed to us because we like to be very active and all our favorite beaches, walking and biking are right out our door. However, we also like to have a peaceful refuge and the house, with its huge views and outdoor/indoor living areas, is relaxed and private.
What makes this house unique
As this is our private vacation home, we take care to keep it in the best condition. We also have a personal interest in our guests enjoying their holiday and we welcome them to enjoy Hale Nene as their own private luxury vacation home.
