About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to 'Hale Pili Aloha' the 'House of Close Friends'. Our lovely cottage exudes the warmth and calm that travelers to Kauai return time and again to experience. Situated between Turtle Cove (at Whalers Cove) and Baby Beach, our home is located in a small friendly neighborhood that runs along the southernmost coast of Poipu. The cottage has lovely gardens front and back, deck and BBQ area. There are bicycles, boogie boards, snorkel and beach gear available for your enjoyment.

The interior is bright and newly decorated in a casually elegant style with Asian antiques and Hawaiian decorative items. The kitchen and baths are updated. The beds and linens are very high quality. The six sets of French doors allow the bird songs, trade winds and fragrant ocean breezes to filter through the home.

The cottage is within walking distance or a very short drive to all the wonders of the Poipu area. Our location is the perfect combination of privacy (away from the denser vacation areas) and access to sun and fun. In the immediate area you will find terrific dining and shopping at the new Kukuiula Shopping Center, superb snorkeling, the best beaches, and sunrise/sunset giant turtle watching. Enjoy an envigorating morning walk along the coast after your first cup of island coffee!

The home is a perfect romantic retreat for a couple yet is large enough for two couples or a small family. Allow us to welcome you to our 'House of Close Friends' will love your stay!

About The Owner

We are a family of three in Northern California.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Poipu

We love the sunny Poipu area on the beautiful 'Garden Isle'. It has a laid back comfortable feeling combined with some of the most beautiful beaches on the Hawaiian islands. Great snorkeling, wonderful hiking trails and sparkling seas, skies and stars make for a vacation dream.

What makes this house unique

This is the consumate island cottage without the typical 'rental' feel. It is open, airy and well decorated without being fussy. Our home is very well kept, with regular gardening and pest control services and a top notch cleaning service. It has a beautiful garden front and back as well as a deck for sunning and dining. Our street is very quiet. We are one block from lovely Baby Beach and Turtle Cove. We are within a couple minutes of everything and are happy to share our suggestions for area highlights!

Fantastic home in perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

Just back after a great week at this house. It was ideal for our family (2 adults, 1 small child). We wanted a home very close to Baby Beach and this place was perfect. Awesome location as a base for exploring Kauai, especially the South Shore. Having washer/dryer was great. We made breakfast every day and enjoyed the lovely afternoon cross breezes before dinner. Everything was clean and ready to go when we arrived. Owner was very responsive throughout the entire process and she handled quickly one small maintenance issue during our visit. Another bonus of this house is a garage stocked with masks, fins, snorkels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, and even surfboards! Having such a lovely home to come back to every day helped to make our vacation relaxing and special. Highly recommend this property!!

Perfect cottage, just as described

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a month in this lovely cottage. Everything was as pictured and well maintained. The cleaning service left the cottage spotless and it felt very welcoming on our arrival. The owners wisely leave a good supply of cleaning products so it's easy to keep the place clean. Five french doors (all screened) leading outside from the main living space mean you can enjoy the tropical breezes without needing air conditioning. The cottage is on a quiet, residential street with good locational balance between the west shore with its Waimea Canyon access and the busier towns on Lihue and Kapaa--though everything you need is probably five minutes away at the Shops at Kukuiula or Koloa town. We had a glitch in the arrangements for our departure date and the owners fixed that within 24 hours. We were pleased all around.

Perfect House and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this wonderful cottage. The home was excellent - perfectly appointed and comfortable inside and out with all of the beach amenities we needed. The location was just as excellent - walking distance to Baby Beach and the Kukuiula Shopping Center, both of which are awesome. My husband and I stayed at the cottage with our 1.5 year old and the location could not have been better for a toddler. Our son loved cruising in his stroller to Baby Beach and to the Shopping Center, which had some good food options and a fun Culinary Market on Wednesday afternoon.

Pamper yourself

  • 5 of 5

We visit the Poipu area every year after Thanksgiving and before the rush of the December holidays. For the past 6 years we have stayed at Kiahuna, but I found myself wanting a bit more ... everything: more space, more quiet, more solitude, more attention to detail ... and we found it in the perfectly charming Hale Pili Aloha.

Our party of 4 spent two weeks enjoying the open plan, the casually elegant furniture, two outdoor sitting areas, the well-stocked kitchen with room enough for more than one person to cook, the large showers, and comfortable bedrooms.

The owners are generous in sharing beach chairs, bicycles, snorkle gear, beach umbrellas and boards. It is obvious they have put a tremendous amount of thought into decorating and outfitting the house as we didn't lack a thing. One day when the others were hiking I enjoyed several hours of blissful quiet and relaxation without leaving the property! I felt like a pampered house guest the entire time.

Many days some of our group took the car to tour other parts of the island, but the nearby beaches are easy walks away- even with beach chair and gear. Baby beach, perfect for the little ones, is also the neighborhood spot for sunset cocktails hour; while the beach at the Beach House restaurant has great snorkeling. If you want to bounce in the waves, swim, watch surf lessons, or are a beginner snorkler just head to the Sheraton/Kiahuna beach and Poipu Beach Park just a bit further along.

We definitely plan to return. Thank you for sharing this island treasure!

Lovely Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We spent an entire week at the cottage and it was wonderful. We had everything we needed to stay in for a romantic evening or a fun day at the beach. Everything was bright and clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is lovely and morning and evening walks are very enjoyable. The nearby cove is a great place to watch sea turtles in the evening and Baby Beach is great for sunbathing and wading. The cottage is conveniently located to shopping and sight seeing. We really enjoyed our stay.
