Clipper ships and nautical decor set the course for enjoyment in the living room. Relax on the plush comfortable sectional sofa and watch TV with surround sound (also CD & DVD players). A sheltered lanai offers a shady place to read or visit.

The large fully-equipped kitchen has generous granite countertops - so get all hands on deck to prepare a hearty meal. With the open floor plan you won't miss a scene of the movie or family anecdote even when you're busy creating a feast.

Set a luscious table in the adjoining dining area with the rustic table and comfortable dining chairs. Plus there's room at the breakfast bar with stools.

The master suite is a tranquil oasis with high ceilings and profuse natural light. The four poster bed is a delight! Have a quiet coffee for two on the private lanai as you enjoy the morning bird song with palms rustling beside you and plumeria blooming below. (Phone and TV for your convenience.)

The travertine tiled master bath has double sinks, a jetted tub and large walk-in shower.

Upstairs Level:

Tiki Room . . . drift to sleep in the queen -size sleigh bed with the tiki and parrot decor surrounding your tropical berth. A small lanai opens off of this room.

The Pua (flower) Room is a loft bedroom (queen bed) with a floral air and a touch of old plantation estates - even a writing desk (or use your laptop wired or wireless).

The Surfer's Room is a fanciful room with 4 twin beds where the kids can watch TV with DVD player, play/hang-out, or paddle off to dreamland.

The Shell Bath is the large upstairs bathroom outfitted to accommodate many shipmates. It has double sinks, private commode, walk-in shower and jetted tub.

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, a fully equipped children's playground, 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.

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), Hanapepe, Kalaheo, and Kapa'a, etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager

ONE SENTENCE DESCRIPTION OF EXPERIENCE: This condo met ALL the needs of our family of 9 to enjoy the beautiful island of Kauai.

I am absolutely unable to articulate our deep appreciate for the extra ordinary comfort, cleanliness and amenities our family enjoyed at this magnificent condo. First stop after our arrival at the airport in Lihue was Costco for groceries for the week plus island favorites of chocolate covered macadamia nuts and Kauai coffee. Key pad access was a real plus. We didn’t have to worry, “who has the key?”The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, appliances and etc. to cook for our large family. All the beds were as comfortable as we have at home. It was just a short walk to the three pools and beach. It was very convenient to have rental site for boggy boards and snorkeling equipment at the beach as well as a stand to enjoy refreshing Hawaiian Ice. Activities included Sunset Cruise along the Na Pali Coast, Smith Family Garden Luau and Kayaking tour on the Wailua River to the Secret Falls. Thank you to owners/managers Jim and Juliana for their quick responses to my many questions before our trip. This was one of our most memorable family vacations to a “slice of paradise.”

Wonderful home at beatiful Kaua'i south shore - loved it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo with a group of 12, ages 10 till 79.

The house had everything we needed and a lot of attention was spent on the details. (Hawaiian signs and even Hawaiian electricity switches ;-) A/C was very nice to have and there was plenty of Beach gear and towels etc.

The house is located just a few minutes away from the fantastic Poipu beach, where we snorkeled a lot and also saw several Sea turtles and Hawaiian Monk Seals. Everyone enjoyed our stay a lot. The house was a beautiful place to start our daily tours all around the Island. (Really fell in love with Kauai'i !!)

I would basically recommend this house to everyone. I cannot find anything why people would NOT want to stay here. (The 2nd week we rented a place in Oahu for a similar price only to realize how Lucky we were with this house in Poipu in our first week!)

I furthermore agree with the more detailed reviews from previous guests.

If we ever get a chance in my lifetime to visit Hawaii again (all the way from the Netherlands and Germany) I will do my utmost to stay in this condo once more.

Beautiful Poipu Regency Condo that easily sleeps 12

  • 5 of 5

I was a little skeptical prior to arriving in Kauai only because I had not been there in years and had no idea what the complex was like, let alone our condo. To our surprise, it was beyond gorgeous! Jim & Juliana had the house set up with all the essentials one might possible need to run a household for 10 days. The rooms were all very large and comfortable. Master nicer than your average home with an amazing 5 piece bathroom & private lanai. The kitchen was very functional w/every appliance and/or utensil you could hope for. It was so inviting and open to the living & dining room that we ate in almost every meal.

I'd have to say our two favorite places in the home was the huge lanai off the living room. My dad, daughter, aunt and I sat out there almost every morning with a cup of coffee visiting. Memories that will last a lifetime! And the upstairs kids bedroom. We had 5 kids from two families and if we were home they were all in their room. This place was like their own private, huge hotel room. Equipped with a tv, fans and tons of floor space.

This condo is also located in the most desirable spot. Two of the three pools are just steps from the the condo and the beach is only a 5 minute walk through the complex. Which by the way is absolutely beautiful. Full of fragrant flowers lining the sidewalks everywhere. Poipu beach also has a huge parking lot if you prefer to drive plus you have all the shopping amenities you could need about 3 minute drive away. Parking within the complex was never a problem. The condo came with 3 parking permits, one designated parking spot and a tone of unmarked parking spots.

I would have never thought spending 10 days with 12 extended family members could be so much fun and spacious.

We will definitely start planning our next visit to Kauai with Jim & Juliana real soon.

Best vacation ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little worried that we might have a tight squeeze in this rental, but as soon as we got there, all the remaining stresses in life disappeared. The house was so clean and spacious. Jim & Juliana thought of all the details. Large bedrooms spaced around the house, plenty of bathrooms, and even the little details were considered. There was a washer and dryer which was so convenient for a party of 11. We had 6 adults and 5 kids from the ages of 7-14. Everyone loved their bedroom and the kids especially loved how we could walk to the pool several times a day! We visited almost every major beach on the island during our week long vacation. Poipu beach was the kids favorite because that's where they saw their first monk seal and sea turtle in the wild. Fortunately, Poipu was only a 2 minute drive. We were able to use all the gear that they stocked in the house. We had plenty of beach chairs, beach toys, beach towels and a cooler for our beverages. When we wanted a break from the sun, we had plenty of room to stretch out in the spacious home. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and large enough for us to cook our meals together. I also appreciated how clean the house and the grounds of the property were. I honestly can not think of one negative experience to report. The owners Juliana and Jim were very good at communicating with us too. They answered any questions that we had and took care of our paperwork quickly and professionally. I can't wait to go back. All eleven of us thought that this was the best vacation ever!!!!

Excellent Condo on a Beautiful Island!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Kauai, and this condo was a big part of it. We definitely tried to spend most of our time out and about, but it was so great to have this place to come back to. It was very comfortable for our family group of 7, plenty of room to spread out! The lanais were so nice to be able to sit outside and listen to the birds, or the occasional refreshing rain. The AC was also nice for the warmer hours of the day, and for sleeping at night. Most of the rooms had ceiling fans as well. We had no shortage of anything, the kitchen was very well equipped. It was a fairly short walk to the beach, there was a small one at the end of the path from the condo, as well as a park and the larger Poipu beach a short distance further. We rented snorkel gear for some easy beginner snorkeling right there. There were turtles and seals resting on the beach a few of the times we were there. We definitely hope to be back and will be sure to look Moku Hale up again!

Thomson family

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo to be a perfect fit for our family of 12. We were all very comfortable with the bedrooms and bathrooms. Towels and kitchen items were supplied. The kitchen and dining room are great. The beach is perfect for small children. We kept coming back to this particular beach after visiting several beautiful beaches on the island. We loved our stay here. The complex is quiet and beautifully landscaped. We were a 5 min walk from the beach. We saw turtles, seals and dolphins. One morning we even saw whales. We had a great time and found this location to be convenient for all our adventures away from the condo. The pools and hot tubs are great as was the convenience of the gas grills. Had a wonderful time! Would recommend this location.

Perfect spot for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This location was a great spot for us to have our parents 50th anniversary celebration vacation. The size was perfect for the 11 of us, and we loved having the extra beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, etc to use. The size of the kitchen made the meals we prepared super easy to have everyone pitch in and help, and there were plenty of plates, glasses, etc for us to use. We loved that it was just a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops. Thanks so much! Wish we didn't have to leave.
