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.
Planning on staying less than a week? Please click the "Ask Owner a Question" link or call to inquire BEFORE making a reservation.
Stays of a week or more are encouraged as our guests have expressed greater satisfaction in setting up a home base for their entire trip instead of splitting between north and south shore. Stays of 3 to 6 nights are welcome on an exception basis depending on existing reservations and time to 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.
We keep quite a few items at the house. These include a coffee maker with a permanent type filter and a coffee grinder, full separate sets of bath and beach towels, laundry soap (usually enough for your stay) and also a collection of beach toys and gear.
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.
How sunny is Poipu? Very! Hot water and electricity for our home are provided by the abundant sun with seamless backup when needed.

Why Chris White chose Poipu
Aikane Kauai vacation home is located on the sunny side of the island and 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. Our home 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.

Chris and Theresa, Thank you so much for the lovely stay at your home.
We can't wait to return for our next vacation 🌴�
We had the best time at Chris' place. The house was perfect for our family of 5. The view from the lanai was spectacular, we saw whales in the distance and enjoyed beautiful sunsets. The house was stocked with everything you need to cook and clean. The beds were comfy and the trade winds kept the house perfect temp overnight. The location was excellent, just a quick walk away from brenneckes beach....which is lots of fun. I could go on..... I'll just say this, thanks Chris for having an excellent property to have a great vacation at! Mahalo!
