Maluhia ma ka Honua means "Peace on Earth" and that is what you will find in this beautiful house located just a 40 second walk to the ocean and just four houses from famous Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park.
The question everyone asks themselves as they leave the airport and drive to Poipu is “Did I rent a good house?” Just before you arrive at Maluhia ma ka Honua, your first thought will be “WOW! The ocean is really close!” As you turn up Nalo Road you can't really see the house well because the beautiful white Plumeria trees are in bloom and they hide the house front a bit. You open the front door, remove your shoes, step into the entry, and then it hits you "WOW! This house is big and gorgeous and well furnished!" Then it really hits you, “This is better than home!”
Like most people, you immediately stare at the 14' high vaulted wood ceiling. Then you open the five sliding doors into this great room and it is almost like living outdoors as the cooling trade winds that make Kauai so special waft through the room from three sides and the three ceiling fans cool the room further. In this great room there is a fully-equipped modern kitchen, a casual eating bar for four, a glass oval dining table for eight under a beautiful chandelier, a game table for two, and entertainment seating for seven! Outside under the 1300 sq. ft. covered lanai two more dining tables for four each and casual seating for six. Maybe you start to imagine sunrise coffee under the east lanai and sunset cocktails under the west lanai. Or maybe you see that there is plenty of lawn for the children to play on and chaise lounges for sunbathing when you don't feel like walking the few steps to the beach.
Each bedroom brings new delights and each bedroom has three-sided ventilation and a ceiling fan that normally keeps the bedroom so cool that blankets are needed for sleeping. The spacious downstairs master bedroom suite has a king-size pillow top bed and oversized bamboo bedroom furniture with a television, a large walk-in closet, and two glass sliding doors leading to the covered lanai and the lawn. Its private bathroom has two lavatories, an oversized glass block and tile shower, a two-person Jacuzzi tub, and a separate toilet compartment. The heated outdoor shower is just outside this bathroom.
The equally large upstairs master bedroom is almost identical to the one downstairs except this one has a vaulted wood ceiling and a nice ocean view balcony. . Over the bed is an original oil painting of Hawaii by famed artist Ezra Muir. The bathroom is identical to the downstairs bathroom except it has a two-person soaking tub.
The third bedroom is the largest bedroom and has a great ocean view. It has two twin beds that can be converted to a king bed, a vaulted wood ceiling and rattan furniture. Its bathroom has one lavatory, a toilet and a tub/shower.
The fourth bathroom is the powder room downstairs complete with a tiled shower. The laundry room features a washer, dryer and a soaking sink.
This house is equipped with everything you need. All kitchen and bathroom needs, all laundry needs, linens, beach towels, beach chairs are provided. You might even find previous guests have left sand toys, boogie boards, and/or snorkeling gear.
Come to Poipu and experience a true Hawaiian beach experience! Like the Hawaiians, come to the beach, gather at the sand and spend hours 'talking story'. Use the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean as your swimming pool. Laugh and enjoy the weather and life. Maluhia ma ka Honua was designed to offer an old Hawaiian beach experience with all the modern amenities and comfort and with the ocean as our swimming pool because it is so close to the house. Isn't this why you are coming to Poipu, for the weather, the beach, and the ocean?
Previous guests have responded by loving this house and having some of the best family vacations of their lives. Maybe it is the Aloha that resides within the house because of the blessings during construction. Or maybe it is the floorplan that has plenty of private places for two or more people to sit and 'talk story' like the Hawaiians. Or maybe it is the location, just 40 seconds walk to the ocean and two minutes stroll to swimming and sunning at Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park. Whatever the reason, they have left behind hundreds of warm comments in our guestbook, and you can see every one of them by clicking on our 'Guest Comments' section.
'Maluhia ma ka Honua' (Peace on Earth) is a private, luxurious Kauai rental vacation home located just steps to the oceanfront at Poipu Beach Park on the south shore of Kauai. It is a great home for family vacations or for very private Kauai honeymoons after a romantic Hawaiian wedding. 'Maluhia ma ka Honua' was built in 1998. It is a luxurious 2650 square foot beach house designed with the feel of an original plantation and detailed, decorated, and appointed to perfection. Beneath a vaulted, fan-cooled ceiling, the large, modern kitchen and the huge great room open up to the surrounding 1300 square foot covered lanai. Three spacious bedrooms each have a large, private bathroom, and every room is cross-ventilated for comfort.
Three wonderful restaurants are within walking distance and at least nine others are nearby. Two resorts with Robert Trent Jones golf courses are within one mile.
This house is 'value priced' to give you a wonderful Kauai vacation and give you good value. You will spend so much time and money just getting to Kauai, and the rental cars and meals can be expensive. You deserve to stay in a really nice home and Maluhia ma ka Honua is nice enough that it would easily rent for $700/night if it were one house closer to the ocean. So come and take advantage of this great value and enjoy this spectacular house.
This house is fully licensed by the County of Kauai! (#TV3716) and has a Kauai property manager within three miles of the house at 800-247-5599.
For smaller families, we also own two other Kauai rental vacation homes. AKALA PUA is our other new three bedroom/three bathroom home and AHE LANI is our new two bedroom/two bathroom home. You can see them at www.alohapoipu.com
Aloha from Jim and Valorie Wisda. We recentlyt moved to Scottsdale, Arizona from Palos Verdes Estates, California where we raised a wonderful son and daughter. We have been coming to Poipu since 1970 and no matter how often we travel to other places or countries we visit like this photo taken on a Bangkok river boat, we always look forward to coming back to Poipu several times a year.
Buzz Wisda purchased this house in 1998
We are used to nice things in our mainland home and that is how we built Maluhia ma ka Honua, to be our home on Kauai. We could have built it anywhere on the island, but for one or two week stays Poipu cannot be beat because it has the best weather possible. We also wanted to be near the action, walk a short distance to the beach and a couple of restaurants. This location has a nice little micro-climate because it is in the leeward side of a small hill.
Families love this house. There is something special about the design that induces families to spend a great deal of time "talking story" and getting to know each other better. Dinners seem to last longer as memories are made.
From the Guestbook: What a perfect house to enjoy a vacation with our son and his family. We had a wonderful time on the baby beach with our three grandchildren. We loved our stay in your beautiful home. Our kids loved the lawn space to run around and the walk to baby beach was perfect for our family. The house worked great for us!
We had a blast at this place. It's provisioned great for a family with young kids. Close to the beach and very peaceful with large open areas to gather with you family. Their housekeeping was amazing, the place was spotless. The kitchen was also the best I have ever seen for a vacation rental, there wasn't one thing I wanted that wasn't there! We would love to come back!
Great house, Great location and all in working order.
We have rented from Buzz previously and we are return renters, and highly recommend properties owned by Buzz.
Thanks for the memories,
I grew up in Hawaii and over the years have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals on various islands. I'm always searching for that perfect balance of vacation luxury in a place that still feels local and 'connected' to the spirit of the islands -- a wonderful, unique and magical place that I still think of as home. This is the place of my dreams! And let me tell you, I usually stay places and say 'this part is great, but I would change this, or knock out that wall and move that'. I was ready to move in here with no changes at all! Buzz, if you ever sell, give me a call :-)
A beautiful home with plenty of space for everyone to both gather and also be a bit apart when you need to. Well-laid out, such beautiful and relaxing surroundings, and so close to the incredible beauty and beaches of Poipu (easy to walk to so many things) and everything the south shore has to offer.
One tiny wish would be for the 3rd bedrooms to have Twin XL beds rather than regular twins (for those longer teenage bodies), but that is microscopic compared to how amazing everything was. We can't wait to come back!
This home has everything. Private bathrooms in each room. Garage parking, close to beach, large yard, beautiful tropical interior, outdoor seating for everyone and much more. Owners indicate they don't provide beach items but previous house guests leave them and they are available for free use (boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs).Owners are prompt with responses and refunding deposit $. We woke up to the sounds of birds singing with to the ocean waves. We could watch the ocean from our bed. There is no A/C but as long as the windows are opened you'll enjoy the ocean breeze to keep cool. We saw seals and tons of turtles at nearby beaches. We drove all over the island and checked out lots of beaches. Had a great dinner at Keoki's Paradise and shopped in Koloa.
Our family of five had a wonderful spring break vacation here. The accommodations were very comfortable. A very short walk to the beach. We enjoyed boogie boarding with boards in the garage. Thanks for the memories!
As soon as we walked through the front door, we knew this rental was perfect for us. The clean, spacious great room with the plantation style ceiling was well ventilated with plenty of windows, and a total of 5 sliding glass doors that led to lanai space which completely surround it. Kona coffee in the morning on the east side lanai followed by barbecuing on the west side lanai in the evening made for excellent use of the outdoor space. The kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of linens (including beach towels) to go around. The downstairs laundry room was also very convenient. The three bedrooms each had their own bathrooms, which made the house well suited for families or 3 adult couples. The location in Poipu made it very easy to access beaches, restaurants, and shopping. All in all, our vacation in Kauai was one for the ages, and this house was a big part of that equation. There are many other items that we could mention, but the online photos for the property reveal these features. We would definitely come back to this house again and recommend it to friends and family. Thank you Mr. Wisda for providing this wonderful home for us.
Near this Kauai rental vacation home is whale watching, sea turtle watching, and relaxing, Beautiful Sunsets are always available at no extra charge!!!!
