About mark mccaslin

Our family is from Palos Verdes, Ca. Ka Lae Kiki has been in our family for over 55 years. When hurricane Iwa destroyed our home, we rebuilt our beautiful new Ka Lae Kiki in 2001. While we miss spending our summers on Kauai, we love sharing with others, knowing that they will have a more memorable vacation than they imagined. Ka Lae Kiki stays occupied with guests year round, with approximately 50 % of our guests being repeat travelers.

mark mccaslin purchased this house in 1957

Why mark mccaslin chose Kauai

There is simply no more beautiful or unique property on Kauai. Originally three acres with over 600 feet of shoreline, Ka Lae Kiki is now a jewell acre on the southern point of the island, with one of Hawaii's only salt water pools and the largest ocean front lawn area on the south side of the island. So many reasons why we bought, and so many reasons why we re-built and remain enchanted !

What makes this house unique

Unique to Kalaekiki is our oceanfront fresh ocean water pool, our 180 degree unobstructed view of sun rises and sunsets, and our spacious ocean front lawn area for games and sunbathing. And, our guests enjoy that each bedroom has an ocean view. truly the most unique home on the South Shore of Kauai.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've stayed at Ka Lae Kiki twice and could not be more pleased with the house, the location, the yard and, above all, the pool. I am hesitant to add to the good reviews because I want this house to be available when I can come back! We have rented houses all over the world but this is probably #1. Book it, you won't be sorry.

Our 10th Visit and it is better than ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting the Hawaii paradise that is Ka Lae Kiki since 2003. This last visit was our 10th and it is still as fabulous as our 1st. The homesite cannot be duplicated anywhere in the world and with an almost 270 degree oceanfront view you get to watch spectacular tropical sunrises each morning and enjoy cocktails on the porch for the fantastic sunsets each evening. This last trip we did manage to go out for 3 lunches but breakfast and dinners were always special at Ka Lae Kiki. BarBQing on the porch each evening has become one of our traditions and a quick trip to Garden Isle Seafood in Lihue always insures we will have the freshest local fish to grill. It is impossible to imagine a better spot to kick back and relax than the great porch or the saltwater pool set in the lava and surrounded by surf. Ka Lae Kiki continues to provide the best vacation location for our family and friends. With 3 or 4 couples to share the house and expenses, this type of vacationing is very affordable and we look forward to our next trip.

Luxury secluded panoramic paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent an idyllic week on Kauai at this Poipu home. The home itself is spacious, beautifully appointed and luxurious. The grounds are generous and expertly landscaped. The view and oceanfront expanse is spectacular, panoramic and presents surf which can break into the lovely saltwater pool. There is even a warm freshwater outdoor shower to follow up your swims if you desire. This property provides more than your imagination could hope for. This relaxing experience is unmatched!!!

Can't wait to go back!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

OMG!!!! What a wonderful week I spent with my family in this beautiful piece of heaven. The house, the pool, the whole property was more breathtaking then pictures can tell you. So relaxing, never really wanted to leave the house. Whether we were chilling in the pool and watching the sunset or having our morning coffee on the patio watching the waves it just doesn't get better then that. Already looking forward to going back. A huge "THANK YOU" to Mark, Peter and your family for opening up your home for all to enjoy, what a treat. God Bless

Our family's experience at Ka Lea Kiki is one we'll never forget. We had four generations of our family at the home and everyone had a great time and enjoyed a relaxing and beautiful week. We will definitely be back. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home with others.
