About mark mccaslin

Our family is from Palos Verdes, Ca. Ka Lae Kiki has been in our family for over 57 years. When hurricane Iwa destroyed our home, we rebuilt our beautiful new Ka Lae Kiki in 2001. While we miss spending family 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 1959

Why mark mccaslin chose Poipu

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 private 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 private 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.

Our Concierge is available to you before you arrive to stock the fridge, answer questions and make arrangements. After your arrival she can help with arranging activities, chef services, babysitting services, and to respond to concerns and questions 24-7.

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.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at Ka Lae Kiki! We had to book last minute. We are so happy it was available to us. Response time was quick and the process went very smoothly. The Mccaslin’s home and property are beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped, and all around just very special. The outdoor space and salt water pool are awesome and the location was also wonderful. We loved going to sleep and waking up to the sounds of the ocean. This property stands out uniquely on this stretch of the south shore and we hope to come back. Mahalo!

Doesn't get any better than this

  • 5 of 5

My family had a truly wonderful week in what has to be the best property on Kauai. The house was immaculate, beautifully appointed and a perfect, comfortable, lovely setting for our vacation. Having expansive lawns between the house and the ocean was a rare treat. And that pool, oh my that pool, is truly the most glorious pool and setting imaginable. Loved that it's a natural salt-water pool and surrounded on almost ALL sides by the ocean. Hanging out in it, which we did for MANY hours each day, was like being in the ocean without any of the peril. All aspects of the booking were easy and professional with Mele. Frank the pool guy became our BFF on the island - wonderful man. We very much hope to return to Ka Lae Kiki within a few years. Worth every penny, and then some.

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!!!
