Overview

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.

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.

Great view! A whale of a time.

  • 5 of 5

This cozy home is nestled away in a secluded spot with a great view of the ocean and is only a short walk to a wonderful snorkeling beach. We watched whales from the lanai and spent hours on the beach. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and just relax. We had a wonderful stay. We'll be back.

The perfect Kauai vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

When I saw the pictures and description of this house on VRBO, I thought it could meet our needs well. My wife and I brought our 14 year-old son and her mother. Having 3 bedrooms was a necessity. The location is great, with a beautiful ocean view from the lanai, and an easy walk to the beach.

The house is clean and there is laundry, which allows you to pack lighter. There were beach chairs, water shoes, snorkels, masks and fins of varying sizes, and plenty of beach towels. The trade winds blow through the house, allowing you to keep the AC off most days. I was comfortable sleeping all but two nights without AC.

Chris was available, easy to talk to, very generous and friendly. He cut some fresh apple bananas for us, which were delicious. He also responded immediately when we had a clogged toilet (someone had flushed a bar of soap!).

The bedrooms are good size and our teenager had his own space downstairs. We loved the 2-person master shower. The outside shower was very handy for washing off that sticky sand!

There were plenty of dishes, pots and pans, we bought only a few things such as Tupperware to store fresh fruit. It is so nice to eat on the lanai with that view!

With cable TV and free wireless internet, there is no excuse for boredom. We brought our own up to date guidebooks and saw the entire island. With this house you are also in easy walking distance to the Brenneke's restaurant and deli, with a small store to get shave ice and sandwiches.

Everyone in our party had a great trip and we would highly recommend this property for your Kauai vacation.
