Poipu House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 2 to 7

Aikane Kauai is among the small handful of homes at Poipu Beach and is ideal for couples, families and small groups. Our home has comfortable, high quality beds and is fully equipped with snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs, free WiFi via high speed cable and lots more. It is also one of the few homes with air conditioned bedrooms (wall mounted a/c). Aikane is Hawaiian for 'friendly' which best describes this delightful beach house. Come see for yourself why our home was selected as a Lonely Planet Editor's Pick.

Bedding arrangements:

Bedroom #1: King size bed.

Bedroom #2: 2 twins or 1 king.

Bedroom #3: 2 twins or 1 king.

We have special lambs wool center pieces with a sturdy horizontal strap that keeps everything snug. We top it off with a king size mattress pad and high quality, fitted bedding which makes for very comfortable king size beds. We will have everything set up prior to your arrival.

Poipu is known as one of the best beaches for its beauty, lagoon, sunsets, warm people, safety, climate, activities, golf and restaurants. From the shallow sandy lagoon to superb snorkeling in the adjacent bay to body surfing and boogie boarding at Brennecke's Beach.

Travel Light. No need to rent, buy or pack gear. We equipped the house with about everything you might want for the beach including masks, snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, coolers and more.

How sunny is Poipu? Very! Hot water and electricity for our home are provided by the abundant sun with seamless backup when needed.

Families are welcome at Aikane Kauai. We understand the creativity and inquisitiveness of children so we provide beach toys, games, dvd's and more so parents can have a relaxing time. Best of all our home is so close to several great beaches, lagoons and huge grassy play areas, you can just put on swim suits and walk to the end of the road and along the coast and you are there. No need to pile into a car and drive.

Why Chris White chose Kauai

Aikane Kauai vacation home is located on the sunny side of the island and is centrally located giving you quick access to several beaches in the neighborhood, beautiful coastal walks along the nearby wild Mahaluepu Coastline with secluded beaches just east of the house, and shopping and dining nearby. The house is on a quiet side street. The nearby beaches offer great swimming and snorkeling even in the winter when Hawaii's famously large surf rolls in to the north and west coasts. The north shore is an hour to the east and north and the spectacular vistas of Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park are an hour in the opposite direction.

What makes this house unique

Aikane Kauai is locally owned, professionally managed and fully licensed with a long and very successful track record. A large percentage of our reservations are returning guests. You are welcome to consider us your personal resource for ideas and suggestions on how to get the most out of your Kauai vacation. Your e-mails and phone calls are always welcome.

Awesome vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

What can be better than a clean rental with bedroom AC 1 block from the best beach on Kauai.

Chris White, owner/manager, was not only accommodating to our requests but prompt in replying to any questions. The property provided all household essentials as well as essentials for beach activities.

Without any hesitation, I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone. As a person born and raised on Kauai, this was a perfect location for all things I enjoyed growing up----half way to either side of the island and next to my favorite beach.

Thank you, Chris!

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 5 adults in this very nice house, which is just a few steps away from beautiful Brennecke's and Poipu beach. The house was perfectly equipped as well as the kitchen and BBQ.

The owners were also very accommodating - thanks a lot!

Would love to return in the future and can only recommend this place...

Perfect Location, Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

This property and location was perfect for our visit. There were 7 of us included 6 adults and 1 toddler. Everything was as advertised and more. Chris was very helpful with instructions and advise. There is an abundant supply of beach items for snorkeling, boogie boarding, umbrellas, etc. The beaches are a very short walk away and there are other paths/trails that make for a lovely morning walk. We were lucky enough to see whales and spinner dolphins from the lanai the first couple of mornings we were there. And so many turtles! The baby beach at Poipu Beach is perfect for toddlers. To sum it up, it was a perfect place for us and it made for an amazing trip. We would most definitely stay here again and I highly recommend.

Could Not Have Been Better!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home in Poipu was absolutely perfect for our group of three while visiting Kauai. Chris responded very quickly to my request for accommodation, and was kind enough to notify me when the home was ready for check-in after our early arrival on the island. The property is light and airy, and is fully equipped with everything needed for a short or long-term stay, including a generous selection of beach chairs and boogie boards. Taking breakfast on the lanai every morning with a view over the Pacific was truly a highlight of my vacation. The house is just a short walk to two beaches, Poipu, the better of the two for swimming, and, Brennecke's, which was fantastic for watching turtles and endangered monk seals in the surf. Air conditioning units in the bedrooms were a welcome amenity for cooling the rooms just before bedtime. Should I ever have the opportunity to return to the beautiful island of Kauai, I would not hesitate to stay again at this wonderful property.

View of the ocean, walk to life guarded beach, spacious, private compound

  • 5 of 5

The location and the generous space of this 3 bedroom 3 bath was perfect for our group of 5 adults. The downstairs is essentially a comfortable apartment with its own living room, mini fridge and table for two and the upstairs had plenty of space and seating for all of us to eat and visit together while enjoying the view. All bedrooms and baths were the same size with king size beds ( that can be converted to a pair of twins) so everyone had a full size bedroom and full size bath. The green 2 story hedge around this property seen on google street views turned out to be a lovely privacy barrier allowing us to keep windows and curtains open and ocean breezes made our space fresh and airy. The turtles in the cove were a nightly sunset stroll. There is a 2 car carport so parking couldn't be more convenient with the outdoor shower and laundry room handy. Backpack beach chairs and other chairs were on hooks in the carport, very convenient and the laundry room was stocked with boogie boards, snorkels, noodles, beach shoes and coolers - perfect!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the kind review! Thanks also for pointing out the hedge. I was surprised that google showed only a wall of green on their street map :) It's so different when you're on the lanai watching the waves roll in.
