Managed by Juliana Cherry of Ala Muku Vacation Rentals
Ala Muku Vacation Rentals invites you to enjoy a beautiful resort experience. Our condo is situated within the prestigious seventy acre Poipu-Kai Resort on the South shore of Kauai. It is just a short walk through the beautiful tropical grounds to Shipwreck Beach or Poipu Beach Park (a snorkeler's paradise). The resort has nine tennis courts (small court fee). There is a shop for all your tennis needs, including rentals. After the game relax in one of the Jacuzzi spas or swimming pools. You can barbecue your "catch of the day" in one of the well maintained grills near the pool.
Accommodations: This beautiful, airy condominium (approximately 1,000 square feet of living space) is furnished as a complete vacation home. Lofty beamed ceilings accent the living area with its two sitting areas and comfortable dining alcove. The surrounding greenery lends a peaceful air.
Our "Hale" (home) features a master bedroom with king sized bed and a huge walk-in closet. Full tiled bath with large soaking tub/shower and granite counter and double sinks.
There are two comfortable lanais, one off the living room/dining area, and the other off the master bedroom. This affords you a choice of shade or sun as the day unfolds.
The kitchen has a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, range-oven, dinnerware, small appliances, and pots and pans.
There is a washer and dryer and extra linens.
Beach gear for your use includes beach towels, beach chairs & mats and sand toys.
Play N' Pack and inflatable single bed available upon request.
The home also features premium channel color TV, DVD and CD players, and high speed wireless internet access and private phones.
Each room has its own ceiling fan to augment the island's dependable, gentle trade winds.
Sip your morning coffee on the covered lanai and check out the waves for the day's surfing prospects, or watch the beautiful island sunsets over a glass of wine.
Kauai Beaches: Poipu Kai resort fronts on two well known beaches... Shipwreck Beach and Brennecke Beach, each an excellent bodysurfing beach. Next to Brennecke beach is Poipu Beach Park, rated the best beach in North America for four years running. It features a sheltered "baby beach" for toddlers and parents, and a great snorkeling and swimming beach with every variety of tropical fish usually only seen in aquariums. Surfing is also an excellent option at Poipu Beach with a surf shop and board rentals just across the street from the beach. Try paddle boarding, it's the latest sensation!
Kauai Restaurants: Brennecke's restaurant is a great place for lunch or dinner at the beach; good burgers, fish and drinks. They have a great crab meal for dinner. Don't forget Lapperts' ice cream for a real treat. It's fresh made in Hanapepe and definitely a landmark destination. They are located throughout the island: Hanapepe, Poipu (just a couple of miles from the house),Kapa'a, Princeville, Hanalei, etc.
Island activities: For the shoppers there are some very nice boutiques in the Poipu Village shopping center just West on Poipu Road. There are also boutique shops at the surrounding resorts, e.g., Hyatt, Sheraton and the Marriott. Food shopping is nearby at the Big Save supermarket in Koloa, just a couple of miles up the bypass road. If you are energetic and want some exercise Kauai offers a great series of hikes and drives, some with breathtaking views. Try the hike along the beach and cliffs east past the Hyatt. It is about 4 miles and the reward is a wonderful white sand beach. There is a spectacular hike/drive up the Waimea Canyon (the grand canyon of the Pacific). At the end of the road hike the trail about 4 miles which will take you to a lookout over the Na Pali Coast. Also refer to the Kauai Guide Book located in the house for more fun things to do.
We stayed one week and I have to say that the condo was very clean and even though no AC the breeze kept the place comfortable. Instructions and directions to condo were very easy. The weather was the only problem. Left cold rain in Oregon to find wind and warm rain at Poipu Kai. Could not use the balconies because of the rain and wind, but the condo is very nice. Probably would not return to Kaui, but only because of the weather we encountered.
We had an amazing stay at this condo. The essentials were already there at check-in so we didn't have to go to the store. It was clean and beautiful. We loved having two balconies. We used both of them depending on the time of day. Customer service gets a 5 star also.
My husband and I stayed at the condo for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time.. We were very pleased that the pictures and description were accurate. The beach is in walking distance and 2 pools were available - one of them is just steps away. We also enjoyed the 2 balconies for meals and just relaxing. Liked the condo's layout and washer/dryer combo. Close enough to walk to shopping, restaurants, but the property was very quiet. Condo was very clean. Only suggestion I would make is the tub needs the grout scrubbed. I didn't notice it until I took a bath. Hope to stay here again!
My wife and I stayed in this beautiful property for our honeymoon and couldn't have had a better experience. Everything was exactly as described and very clean. The property managers were extremely quick to respond and even went to the unit to turn the lights on for us when they found out our flight had been delayed! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and the beach is very close by. The unit is also within walking distance to restaurants and a VERY short car ride to shopping. I honestly can't think of a single negative thing. I would highly recommend this unit and we look forward to visiting again!
We stayed in this unit for 2 weeks and enjoyed it. It was well furnished, very clean and comfortable. The rental agent was quick to respond to our needs. We highly recommend this unit. The assigned parking space was very convenient.
Lush well maintained gardens engulf this home away from home. Spacious feeling with the cathedral ceiling and open layout. Nice granite counters in the kitchen made it feel just like home. Wash/dryer combo was a real plus. About a 100-150 yards to the beach with a bit of a view from the deck. Home was clean and well kept. Well stocked kitchen, walk in closet and great owners. Location close to everything yet far enough away to be quiet. Happy hour at Keoki's great food and prices - calamari best I've ever had! Homemade pastries and French press coffee - amazing! - at Koloa Coffee. Mahalo to Julianna and Jim for managing this fabulous property.
