2 bdrm, 2 bath fabulous ocean view and sound of crashing waves
Hale Nani Kai, 'House of the Beautiful Sea', is one of the last original 'sugar shacks' left on the south shore of Kauai. Hale Nani Kai takes you back to the days of a simpler Kauai... vast ocean views, the sound of waves crashing on the lava shore, and the simplicity of island life 50 years ago.
Hale Nani Kai is a true beach house. Let the sounds of the waves lull you into an afternoon nap, enjoy lazy days on the magnificent lanai in the shade with a good book or just gaze out on the gorgeous South Shore view of Brenneke's and Poipu Beaches. Be entertained in whale season with your front row seats for whales and their calves and the year round turtles that frequent the shore.
Hale Nani Kai has two bedrooms, each with a comfortable king bed and bathroom en suite. The living room has a full sized sleeper sofa. The decor is beach house casual, boasting both indoor and outdoor dining areas for 6. The kitchen is well stocked for meals in, and a gas BBQ for the grillers in your family waits on the lanai. There are laundry facilities on the premises and beach chairs, towels, umbrellas to take on your short walk to the beach or to enjoy Hale Nani Kai’s private lawn. The sunset views of Hale Nani Kai are breathtaking, and a wonderful treat to return to at the end of the day from wherever your adventures have taken you. The VRBO calendar is always up to date so if it says it is available, it is!

About Shari Pilaria
We first moved to the Islands in 1988 and lived in Oahu. One trip to Kauai and we were HOOKED! We bought property in Poipu in 1996 and keep coming back! We live in Texas full time and love to share the blessing of this home while we are away.
Shari Pilaria purchased this House in 2004
Why Shari Pilaria chose Poipu
We had owned a condo previously and wanted to have a little more privacy and space. We found this jewel in the middle of Poipu and have loved it ever since! The location is perfect for walking to either Poipu Beach Park or the Hyatt, Shipwreck Beach. The vast open view from the lanai was the selling point for us as well as the uniqueness of this old house! We have updated it, but tried to maintain the old, cottage style living it was intended for when it was built in 1962. It has withstood hurricanes and storms, hosted many families and friends, been the spot for various Hawaiian musical concerts and countless delicious meals served and enjoyed over the years. It's the real Kauai. So many incredible memories for us and no doubt many more to come!

Great Location! Amazing Views! Wonderful house!
This was our second time to stay at Hale Nani Kai. Our expectations are always exceeded with this property, it's views, rental manager and owner. The property is within walking distance to Poipu beach, Brennecke's beach and restaurant. This home is very nice, quiet, clean and the views from the lanai must be seen. It's a great location to stay while on Kauai! Would highly recommend. Will book again!
Sooooo glad yall went again to our home in the islands to relax & recreate! I can just picture you feeling right at home there!
Truly, that view of the ocean is just unbelievable! You do have to see it to believe it!!!
We never get tired of it & can appreciate the peacefulness you experienced while there. Everyone should have this opportunity to take in God's beautiful creation & savor that special time.
Thanks for leaving the review for us & we are thrilled to know that you'll be back! Aloha!!!!
Perfect piece of paradise
This place is not for the hoity toity. There are no granite counter tops or stainless steel appliances. This is a fabulous old sugar shack with history, and a view to die for. We spent most of our time on the lanai (which is huge) watching the scenery change with the suns passing from sunrise to the most beautiful sunsets with each sunset so different and spectacular.
The property feels very private with all the surrounding vegetation, a great place to do your yoga. There are a variety of birds that like to visit along with the many different geckos.
It was hard to leave this place, it was the perfect place for all of us (5 adults). So worth the cost!

Perfect family sized home. Excellent view. Excellent location. Well stocked.
Rain or shine. The home provided what we needed. A little rustic. But that’s what makes it.
We will return. Thank you so much.
We ate all meals and spent the majority of our down time on the lanai. Stunning views and beautiful ocean breeze. Loved having a variety of kauai books, beach accessories and cooler available to us.
Lovely location overlooking the Pacific; a very comfortable family home
We really enjoyed our stay in the Plantation Cottage. It was conveniently located and the deck plus view were really lovely. The house, while perfectly comfortable and equipped with everything we needed, was not ultra modern and up to date, and the second bedroom did not have much natural light, but these things didn't matter to us. It is currently on the market, so I don't know how long it will be available to rent, but I'd certainly recommend it as a place to stay in Poipu.
Lovely older cottage with stunning view
we enjoyed the lanai at just about any time of the day, from morning coffee to after sunset wine. The views of the ocean are incredible! As stated, the property is older, but the view and lanai cannot be equaled. Well equipped with beach gear. Very walkable and safe.
Thank you for coming to enjoy our home away from home on the island of Kauai! Yes, we love it that the cottage is one of the few on the south shore that is still in it's original state. We have updated the floors and painted and replaced lots of fixtures and appliances, but the house itself is the original! Part of the enjoyment of this place for us is that it is the way life was on Kauai back in the day! We love imagining how the old Hawaiians might have recreated, cooked, played and "talked story" on that huge open lanai overlooking the vast ocean! The garden down below the house, no doubt, was a playground for families to enjoy each other and God's beautiful creation.
We do hope that you will come again and send your friends too! Aloha nui loa!
In the heart of Poipu Beach Hale Nani Kai overlooks the beautiful rocky shores down to the beaches of Poipu. An excellent location for snorkeling and beach activities.
