Kapakai - Hawaiian for "coastline" - you will understand this home's given name when you take in the stunning view of the Poipu coastline from the upper deck. This hale (house) is located on top of a volcano (extinct, of course) in a quiet local neighborhood. Grab a towel & walk down the hill to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke Beach.

Excite your tast buds with dragon heart fruit, rambutan, lychee, star fruit and more. The galley kitchen with its practical and handsome finishes is a great platform for your culinary adventure. Many decorative plates, bowls and glassware provide for delightful table settings.

Step into the Spirit of Old Hawaii surrounded by colorful local artwork and distinctive island furnishings. The living areas unfold with a comfortable breezy living room ... to the dining space with a massive round table ... to an intimate conversation seating area opening onto the expansive L-shaped covered lanai ... then one more adjacent family room space with ocean glimpses revealed through verdant foliage.

Breathe in the fragrant plumeria and bright bougainvillea bordering the grassy yard which encircles this home. Plenty of room for youngsters to run & play - croquet, anyone?

The master suite on the ocean side has a queen bed, TV/DVD viewing. The master bath shower, floors and vanity are tiled in decorative travertine stone tiles.

The guest bedroom wing of the home features a king poster bed in one room and twin beds in the other, TVs in both. These rooms share a "Jack and Jill" bath with fun fish & cobalt blue tiles at the shower and vanity.

As the sun sets, the western view is a delight to enjoy the last rays from a memorable day in the comfortable lounge chair seating, or at the nearby table over pupus (hors d'oevres) and beverages.

Poipu Beach Park, just minutes away with 2 free parking lots, offers a large grassy area dotted with swaying coco palms. There are picnic tables, showers, restrooms, even a convenience store, restaurant and beach rentals across the street.There is a cove called "Baby Beach" where toddlers play in the sand and splash in the shallow waters. A few steps away in the clear warm water, colorful tropical fish swim beneath as you snorkel just feet from the shore. The calm waters and gentle waves are enjoyed by swimmers of all capabilities. Experienced surfers can catch large-breaking waves further out beyond the reef. Brennecke Beach, at the east end of the park, is renowned for body surfing and boogie boarding.

FREE FITNESS CLUB AMENITIES INCLUDE: cardio workout room, weight lifting equipment, exercise room (and classes), poolside table and chaise lounges, restaurant and bar and pool/hot spa with waterslide! Lots of games to play for young and old alike - 4 tennis courts, 3 pickleball courts, basketball, badminton, volley ball, shuffleboard, ping pong, and more lawn games (all equipment provided!!).

Lovely traditional Hawaiian-style home

  • 5 of 5

While many people associate the traditional plantation house with Hawaiian style, to me it means board and batten siding, wood floors, louvered windows, ceiling fans, and deep lanais. This house has all that and more. The furniture and artwork reinforce the theme and the roof deck adds another dimension. Very romantic! In a more practical vein, the kitchen is fully equipped, the beds are comfortable, and the living spaces are well-laid out. The house is just as pictured and described. Plus, the Cherrys are excellent hosts. I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in Poipu.

Location location and so much room!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful home for 10 nights and loved it, great family space with main living area then a second one both with TVS. Bedrooms and beds are great, and the grounds are in perfect shape. Less then 10 minute walk to the beach and surf shop. We had 4 adults and two kids and it worked so well for us. And the upstairs deck for evening sun sets was the best!

The house is beautiful and the views of the ocean spectacular. There were books to borrow for reading and board games to play with the family. There were also lots of movies to choose from for a movie night. Plenty of boogie boards and sand toys. My son was stoked to see an Xbox but I wouldn’t let him play it. We are in Hawaii! We would stay here again if we return to Kaua’i. Julianna was very helpful anytime I had questions.

Excellent house for a group

  • 5 of 5

This is a particularly well-kept house and grounds. There is an upstairs deck (built on top of the roof - pretty neat) that has a great view of the Poipu Beaches and coastline. Great place for mornings and evenings. The house itself is well laid out. The corner location is a bit busy and during the week with construction trucks, etc., it gets a little noisy. In addition, the walk is a bit longer to the beach than we thought it would be. Nothing much for adults but little ones (5 and 2) we ended up carrying back (uphill) too many times! The property managers are exceptionally good to deal with - professional and accommodating as they can be.

Owner's Response: Aloha and glad you enjoyed this great house. The construction noise was due to the neighbor making some improvements on their property. I spoke with them recently and seems that they are done with the projects. The walk up the little hill could be tough for young children but as you said not a problem for a healthy adult. There are 2 large free parking lots at Poipu Beach so a 2-3 minute drive is another option. Thank you for the visit!

Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Loved Kauai!!! The house was spacious for two families with a big backyard for the kids to play in. The lanais were large enough for family dinners and the upstairs deck was a PLUS with the spectacular views.

Even with all the fans going, the house was quite hot. Funky bathrooms need fans; they were like saunas. Seniors need to be careful getting in and out of the showers.

Overall, the house worked and the property managers were very accommodating.

Owner's Response: We are glad you loved Kauai and that this 3 bedroom spacious home fit your family needs. The deck view is great! Usually with opening the many windows, the 3 large sliders and the ceiling and stand-up fans, our almost constant trade winds cool the house down and make it quite pleasant. This home was built in the 60s and remodeled with a casual island retro feel. To update the smaller 1960 bathrooms, the owner chose natural stone tile in the master and a fun fish/blue & white motif in the other bathroom. We do let people know that both tiled showers are "sunken" and there is a grab bar to hold for stepping down into the shower. We appreciate the idea of a fan in each bathroom and will pursue that improvement. Adding fans to the ample window ventilation should help. Aloha and thank you for the visit!
