About Shirley Martin

We are a happily married couple that enjoy Hawaii and the Hawaiian Spirit. We have traveled many times to Hawaii and fell in love with the islands and the Hawaiian people. We are from Southern California and spend our vacations on Kauai with our family. We have 4 grown kids and 5 grand kids that like to come over for vacations also.

Shirley Martin purchased this condo in 2006

Why Shirley Martin chose Kauai

We enjoy Kauai so much that we decided to buy a place here and rent it out until we retire and can live here full time in a couple of years.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the quiet and relaxed atmosphere that is enjoyed here on Kauai. When we are on the island we enjoy relaxing walks on the beach and spending time at the Kilauea Lighthouse.

Bothell, WA


  • 5 of 5

My family took our first trip to Kauai in March and we stayed at Nihilani because it was the most affordable place for all 10 of us. I travelled with my husband and two kids, my brother and his wife, my sister and her husband, and my dad and his wife-- to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. We loved our stay at the House of Aloha! First, we loved the kitchen. We prepared and ate most of our meals there and it was perfect for all 10 of us. Second, we loved having the two-car garage complete with boogie boards, scuba gear, water shoes, and ice chests-- these are essential items while on the island! Third, the bedrooms accommodated us all perfectly. And fourth, the pool and grounds were lovely. This was a wonderful location near a beautiful golf course and in a pretty, private setting. I cannot say enough about how accommodating the owners were to us from the very beginning. They were quick to respond to questions or requests and ensured our stay was acceptable. You will not find a nicer place, in a better location, at a better price. Mahalo!

Amazing! So family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the House of Aloha immensely. There were two families of 4 staying here and it was the perfect size. Everything we could have possibly needed was right at our fingertips. The grounds were immaculate the house itself was beautiful and very well kept and the pool area was gorgeous. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The House of Aloha was more than we expected. The photos do not do the condo or the neighborhood justice.

Our visit to Kauai was for our daughers wedding and 4 adults stayed at the condo for the entire trip. There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep when our other children joined us. With 8 adults & 1 child, we didn't need to use the sleeper sofa. Everyone said their bed was very comfortable and although they stayed only 1 night, they wished they could've stayed longer. The master bedroom & bath was as comfortable as any fine hotel and we slept better than we ever have away from home.

The condo was tastefully decorated and had all the amenities we could have asked for. The kitchen is decked out with all large & small appliances including a beverage/wine cooler. Our family was able to sit together for dinner at the large table and it worked great for game night. Available for use at the condo was snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers, high chair, booster seat, washer & dryer with laundry detergent, plenty of beach towels for everyone, the list goes on & on! The pool is very nice and only a short walk. Parking in the garage is very tight for 2 vehicles but not impossible. Guest parking is not permitted overnight so it's definitely something to consider when planning a stay for a group of adults.

Visiting from Michigan in January, we initially had concerns about not turning the air conditioner below 77 degrees, however, we did not need to turn the air on at all the entire visit! We were out of the condo for activities during the day and opening the windows slightly kept it comfortable for sleeping.

We would definitley stay at the House of Aloha again. Thank you Mike & Shirley for such pleasant accomodations during a special time for our family!

Our stay at the House of Aloha was nothing short of wonderful. The home is beautiful and so well equipped. It has everything one needs to enjoy a relaxing day in, but also has everything one needs to enjoy a day on the beach. Thank you for the use of the ice chests, fins, snorkels, boogie boards, chairs, beach towels, sand toys, etc. We loved the beautiful oversized kitchen with tons of dishes, utensils, pots, pans, toaster, blender, coffee makers, stock pots, bowls - everything you can think of for an enjoyable home experience. We also loved the oversized dining table that has enough space for everyone to eat together and gather to play games. The home is immaculately maintained and so clean and modern. The beds were comfy and there was plenty of room for our group (6 adults 2 kids). The lanais and patio were also a fun place to just sit and relax. We enjoyed the beautiful pool and spa area too. Overall, I would highly recommend the House of Aloha. We had a wonderful experience with the owners, the rental experience and the home itself. We are definitely planning a return trip (only longer this time:). Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Above the expectation

  • 5 of 5


-Quick communication

-Air conditioning!

-3 full size bedrooms, 1 bedroom that could fit a couple (but more for a single adult or 2 kids and has no attached or accessible bathroom upstairs), pull out bed in couch-so lots of room!

-Every room had a TV with cable

-Master suite is epic

-Laundry room with soap provided

-Lots of towels, beach towels, beach toys, coolers, etc.

-Items for a baby to stay

-Nice large dining table perfect for holiday dinners

-Well appointed kitchen with lots of already stocked goodies (so much so that we wished we went to the condo before going grocery shopping). There was even a giant soup pot and a rice cooker!

-Nice view

-Close to Hanalei and Na Pali

-Nice pool and hot tub (BBQ is in pool area)

-Parking for 2 cars

-Beautiful little welcome gift upon arrival

-Feels totally updated and modern!

-Super clean


-VERY tight fit in garage for 2 cars (but the fact it even has a two car garage in HI is nice)

-Keep in mind the guest parking is not overnight, so 3 cars is not a possibility

-Beaches great for swimming in the winter surf are on the South shore, so a little over an hour away (worth it to stay here and drive for us, but good to know for others)

Things we did:

-Hiked Na Pali

-Lydgate, Poipu, Salt Pond beaches for swimming. Salt Pond was hands down our favorite-and a great beach to pair with a morning at Waimea Canyon.

-Smith Family Luau


-Ate at some great food trucks

-Waimea Canyon


-Shops in Hanalei

Will recommend to others in a heartbeat! We normally never travel with a larger group like we did this time, and the space really helped make it comfortable for people with a lot of different ideas of what a great vacation means.

The perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful and it was in the perfect spot to where we always visit. It was great to have all the snorkeling gear, high chair, and all the comforts of home. The Martinswere very easy to work with and it was a wonderful stay. It was our 4th trip to Kauai and we WILL be back!
