Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Step through the door of Hale Mahina Kauai and feel the aloha. The great room is the center of the home and opens onto the expansive screened lanai and the tranquil garden in the private back yard beyond. Both the kitchen and master bedroom also open to the lanai which offers dining on the kitchen end and a conversation area outside the master. The two downstairs bedrooms are on opposite sides of the great room for added privacy. Each bedroom has air conditioning and a TV and there is a 47-in 'smart' HDTV in the great room. For those of you who need to stay in touch with the real world, we offer wireless Internet service. There are ceiling fans throughout, including the lanai. The newly upgraded kitchen makes preparing meals at home a pleasure as well as a huge money saver. We also provide everything you'll need to enjoy a day at the beach: snorkel gear, boogie boards, umbrella, coolers, beach chairs and mats, surfboard, beach towels. We also include a crib, high chair, jog stroller and play yard. A much greater value than a hotel.

Owners profile: Aloha kakou - Hale Mahina Kauai is owned and operated by Dennis and Gail. Our home is newly upgraded, beautifully appointed and awaits your arrival.

We honeymooned on Kauai in 1971, returning every chance we got until fate, hard work and a generous dose of good luck combined to see us move here permanently in 2004. When friends on the mainland ask us when we're moving back we answer simply, 'We're not.' A deep love of our island and extensive local experience permit us to share our learning and understanding with our guests. We are happy to offer as little or as much advice as you desire to make your vacation in Hale Mahina an incredible experience, full of fond memories. We want you to enjoy your stay so much that you will return again and again.

Location, location, location!: Hale Mahina is conveniently located in the lushly landscaped 70 acre Poipu Kai Resort, a collection of single family homes and condos, which is nestled along the paved greenbelt between the Grand Hyatt Resort and Poipu Beach Park. The single family home is a mere 5-10 minute walk from 3 beaches, the Resort's pool, jacuzzi and 8 tennis courts, the Grand Hyatt Resort, numerous restaurants and activities. Koloa town is 3 miles away and offers additional restaurants, shops and grocery stores. Poipu is the perfect jumping off spot for touring this incredibly beautiful island. It is centrally located between the lush north shore and the spectacular west side with its Waimea Canyon and Na Pali coast overlook. At the end of your day of touring or beaching it, you can relax on the tranquil lanai with an 'umbrella drink' or walk to Poipu Beach to watch one of the south shore's spectacular sunsets. It's your vacation. You decide!

Why Gail Rowley chose Poipu

We find the Poipu Kai Resort to be ideally located between several of the best beaches on the island, none more than 10 minutes away by car. The amenities offered by Poipu Kai Resort are truly outstanding. The peaceful ambience and location of 'Hale Mahina' welcome our guests back time and again. We think you will agree!

Return Trip and loved it just as much the second time!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row that we stayed here and it was comfortable and enjoyable as we remembered!!! The Rowley's are great hosts, even though we have never met them in person. They are incredibly responsive to emails and provide a wonderful and well stocked home!!! Everything you need to enjoy the beaches of Kauai is provided including boogie boards, snorkel gear and sand toys. We even took advantage of the surf board. The screened lanai is our favorite spot in the house. Overall just very comfortable and provides the very best for Hawaiian living. Also loved the fruit stand right up the road!

Lovely neighborhood, good location, very nice house and a great 2 week’s.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in your house for 2 weeks in October. We found the house to be well stocked and very comfortable. There were plenty of dishes, cookware,flatware and storage. Our only suggestion would be to put a queen or larger bed in the downstairs extra bedroom and 2 twins in the loft. While we were there it was really hot and the loft wasn’t as cool as the downstairs. Al and I would have put the grands upstairs and slept downstairs except a double bed is too small for us. We loved the screened lanai and ate most of our meals there. The beach supplies were fantastic and plentiful. There were more than enough beach towels and sand chairs and the wagon made trips to the beach and pool a breeze. Everything in the house was in good repair and the showers had great water pressure (I have thing about “ low pressure showers). The owners were really kind and helpful, although we didn’t need them at all. I would definitely recommend the house to friends and family.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in your home. We had a family group of 6 adults and 2 children and had room for everyone. Was within walking distance to Poipu Beach and the Grand Hyatt. We had plenty of beach equipment for adults and children. We enjoyed the lanai area and ate our meals there. Thank you!!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family of 5 adults. It was perfectly situated in a quiet neighborhood with quick access to many great areas and we loved that we could walk 5 minutes in either direction and get to our 2 favorite beaches. Poipu is perfect for families with young children ad the beach in front of the Hyatt was perfect for boogie-boarding. Even my 80yr old mom could walk down to the beach a couple of times during the day to come enjoy the beach with us. We loved the use of the boogie boards, chairs, coolers, wagon etc, and used them all everyday! The home is beautifully furnished and we ate all our meals out on the covered lanai. It was perfect! The kitchen came with everything we needed and more..including my favorite - the blender where we could make our healthy smoothies every morning with local fresh papaya, mangoes, pineapple and avocados! The home is beautifully furnished with comfortable beds and linens. We loved the use of the washer/dryer and the many towels. Gail was super accommodating and was always there with a prompt reply when we had questions and requests. We will definitely be staying here again when we return to Kauai! Thank you!!
