Overview

About the property

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.

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.

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.

We are happy to receive reservations up to 1 year in advance. Stays under 7 nights are available on a fill in basis at the owner's discretion. Please contact us for details.

About Chris White

Why Chris White chose Kauai

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.

What makes this house unique

Aikane Kauai is locally owned, professionally managed and fully licensed with a long track record. You are also welcome to consider us your personal resource for ideas and suggestions on how to get the most out of your Kauai vacation.

A Pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We had to cancel our trip to your wonderful home. I just have to write that as we had a medical emergency and did not get a chance to stay we did get and excellent chance to get to know Chris, the owner. I will never rent or travel to Kauai again without going through Chris. He is a very caring person and actually check on our sons health more then once as we were going through this process. You don't come across people who are strangers that care as he does. Just on that alone I would give the owner 5 stars. I am sure the home is also a 5 star as Chris really cares.

Great location, loved all the amenities. Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, it worked great for our family. Having a/c in the bedrooms on the warm days was great. The kids loved all the beach toys and it is so close to the beach. Couldn't ask for a better location. The house is well stocked with everything we needed. Would come again!

Everything you would want including whale watching off the lanai.

  • 5 of 5

The house has all you need and more. The owners are awesome to work with. The location is perfect for beach activites, walking distance to restaurants, and centrally located on island. This was a return stay for us at this property. We enjoyed our stay so much the first time. The downstairs suite had added privacy for the couple that was staying with us. Love this house we will stay here again in rhe future!🌴

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was perfect for our extended family. The kitchen had everything we needed to create some great dinners. We enjoyed evenings on the deck and even saw whales breach while sitting there! We made daily use of all the beach equipment. The best part was the easy walk to snorkel at Poipu Beach, easily the best place on the island with an amazing variety of fish and turtles.
