The Garden Island offers you this beautifully appointed, Mediterranean style home that is located on a protected white sand beach in sunny Poipu. The large, stylish, and open living room offers magnificent, ever-changing views of the Pacific Ocean with spectacular sunsets. A rarity on Kaua’i, this home even features air conditioning in the entire upper level and in all bedrooms. Although this home provides the privacy you desire it is also just a few minutes from popular sites, shopping, and dinning! This Poipu property also sports one of the best running and walking paths on the island of Kauai within walking distance.

Hale Ma’ana Hou in Poipu has 5 air-conditioned bedrooms, 4 baths and 2 half baths, including 2 master suites, and can accommodate 10 people with comfort.

AC is ONLY in bedrooms and upstairs living room.

While you watch and listen to the waves rolling up on the sandy beach below you will delight in preparing and serving large or small groups in an over-sized kitchen and elegant dining room. A separate family room on the lower level, with convenient wet bar close to outdoor activities, leads to the backyard lawn, pool, and beach. A small open-air, poolside sitting room overlooking a splendidly tiled turtle mosaic 14 x 30 foot pool adds a spacious outdoor living area for intimate dining, pool parties, children’s activities, and more.

Excellent location and walkable to beach, restaurants and shopping. The property had amazing views, very spacious and has everything you could want. It was hard to leave this spot to look at other things around the island. Our family loved it. We were on a vacation that our adult children and spouses could come and hang out together with us.

We all came to Kauai to have a family holiday vacation. The house was amazing and made our trip wonderful. There were so many animals we saw just from the porch on the house-turtles, tropical fish, sharks and whales. most evenings the turtles came to bask on our little beach. The Garden island rental company was very helpful and we had a quick response time for any questions. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen had everything. I would definitely stay at this house again, Mahalo.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The Hale Ma'ana Hou Home is the best vacation rental we have experienced. Our family of nine ranging in age from 13 to 70 enjoyed a week in paradise. The home was beautiful, well stocked with anything you could possibly want or need, was large enough to give everyone their own space and separation when needed and to top it off we had the best seats for sunsets and turtle visits every evening.

This was an amazing house with lots of room. Beds were comfortable, house was clean, and they had so much kitchen stuff to use. The best part though was the outside. You were right on the water, had sea turtles come up every night, could swim in the pool or ocean. It was perfect! Will stay here again!

Reviewer Comments: I am a repeat visitor to the Hawaiian Islands and have come to learn that the proximity to the beautiful ocean can also cause problems. The salt air wreaks havoc on appliances, and the smaller islands can have supply issues with parts and skilled repair people. Our Rental agency did their best to solve our problems and were generous (a Liliko"i Pie!) in their apology. Yes, I would stay here again.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My husband and I rented home for our extended family ( two sons , their wives and four young granddaughters ). The rental agency was great, helped with delivery of baby items, and kept us updated on rental information. They were in constant communication.Home is beautiful, clean and well stocked with towels, kitchen supplies and even laundry soap. Plenty of seating at pool and well stocked with snorkel equipment, beach chairs, floats and sand toys.The location can’t be topped. We were right on the beach, great snorkeling in front of home and we were visited nightly by large sea turtles. The view is unbelievable from both levels.We walked to nearby shopping center for shopping, bars, restaurants and a farmers market. And of course shave ice.Grand daughters loved the pool and walking to baby beach a few steps away.The location can’t be topped. Perfect for families!!

We had a fantastic stay at Hale Ma’ana Hou!!! We absolutely loved it. The beachfront location of this home is amazing! It’s literally a matter of steps to basically be on your own private beach and you have your own private pool. We had a couple issues with the washer and the air conditioner upstairs, but Brenda and Chela (from Garden Island Properties) were super responsive and had both fixed and/or replaced during our stay. The home is a bit on the older side so some things may need to be upgraded in the future. For example, some of the windows/hardware will probably need to be replaced as they were challenging to open and close. But overall, the house is really well maintained, has a spacious layout to accommodate large groups and its ocean view and location can’t be beat. We had so much fun at this home and would highly recommend staying at Hale Ma’ana Hou.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was the best family vacation we hav3 had. We visited with my 3 sons and 2 daughters in law. The house was perfect for us. It’s a terrific designed home for groups who also want to escape occasionally to other areas for privacy.The management company was first class and very attentive. The house is clean and well maintained.The home was very well stocked and provided everything we needed for our 10 days there. The ocean views and nightly sunsets are absolutely stunning. Having a private beach where we could swim and snorkel was a luxury.Thank you for everything. We are filled with gratitude for such an awesome experience.( One suggestion I would make, is to switch up 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms upstairs shares a Jack and Jill. I would move that King sized bed to the basement bedroom that currently has 2 twins. Of done that way it would provide 4 couples with private bathrooms and a bedroom for children connected to parents etc.:

The wait was much worth it! This family holiday was supposed to happen back in 2019 but then unfortunately COVID happened. I truly believe everything happens for a reason. Our stay here at Hanaa mou....( check spelling) has brought so many lasting memories to our family. The location was perfect and views were amazing!! The sunsets were absolutely just breathtaking and stunning beyond words. My 7 year old daughter enjoyed seeing the turtles on the beach every night and boogie boarding on baby beach. These will be memories she will have forever and I am beyond grateful for that. LOTS of dolphin and whale sightings right from the balcony.... (except for the times it ended up being snorklers. Hahahahah) However, the 10 foot tiger shark that was feeding in 2 feet of water right in front of the house, was a bit nervy but also quite exciting as you don't see that everyday! The kitchen was phenomenal for cooking meals. Tons of utensils and kitchen gadgets that made things so much easier. My dad and brother in law much appreciated the brand new high quality bbq and made our fresh steaks and Ahi turn out just perfectly!! Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to all our friends. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay as a family to celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary. The one and only suggestion to be made is to have better quality soaps in the bathrooms. When staying in such a phenomenal high end home in such a beautiful place, it's nice to feel like you're staying at a 5 star hotel. We are from Canada and if we could offer a suggestion Rocky Mountain Soap Company has amazing beautiful soaps that are all natural and have made our experience at places memorable. We can't thank you enough for your generosity in sharing your beautiful home with our family and all 6 of us are so grateful for the memories we have created here!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We brought our kids and grandkids for my 60th birthday and were lucky enough to have stayed in this beautiful home. It was everything and more that we were looking for. The location is amazing for watching the sunset off the patio and overlooking the ocean. The views are breath taking. The pool was wonderful to have for the kids and we spent many hours swimming and having dinners on the patio. The beach below the house was such a special treat and the snorkleling was the best in the area. The house has everything you would need and all the rooms were spacious and accommodated all of us. The staff at Garden Island were so helpful. They were friendly and always available for any questions we had. We have been to Kauai several times and this home is definitely our favorite. Cant wait to go back. Mahalo for the memories we were able to make there.

Great location best snorkeling we’ve experienced at Kauai. The home is in need of maintenance, two downstairs showers take 1/2 day to drain, upstairs master slider door jam needs to be replaced. Overall a great time was had by all just hate to see the home in need of so many minor repairs.

Better snorkeling right off the house than what we had on a tour! House was clean! Parking is limited but we used the garage and with 3 cars there was no problem. It would have been nice to have a kuerig. Also the ice maker is hard pressed to keep up with 9 people, but we bought ice at local stores ~0.5 miles away. Loved the pool! Would definitely recommend this place and would come back here again!! Very convenient to shops and restaurants.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is a beautiful spacious house at a wonderful location, within walking distance to beaches and shopping center. It was perfect for our family of 7. The furnishings were very nice. There were plenty of beach towels for our use, also boogie boards and some snorkeling equipment were available. It would have been nice to have a beach umbrella also, as most condos that we have stayed in have. The property management was very responsive to our needs. There were a few maintenance issues with the house, however. The ice machine and water dispenser in the fridge only worked intermittently. The windows were not very clean and because they are old many were difficult or impossible to open and close. And upon our arrival we were told that the A/C was not in working order in the upper floor of the house. In spite of these issues I would recommend this rental.

This house recently changed ownership. It was completely rebuilt after being destroyed in 1992 (hurricane). It has a small beach in front, where you can swim out to snorkel. Beautiful views and a short walk to the newer "mall" in Kauai. It is also very close to Baby Beach, which was great for our 2 year old grand daughter. Given all this - the property is in transition, between owners. But it is well stocked, with about everything you need on vacation, clean, and appliances - etc worked well. AC is in each of the bedrooms and that is about the only place in Kauai I need to have AC - in the rest of the house you can enjoy the Hawaiian breezes during the day. I hope the new owners keep it as a rental in the future - very nice spot.

We were looking for a first class house and this property delivered. Great views and location. Good space. Pool is a little cold but works well to cool off. Has great little beach out front in which we saw a monk seal, an eel and a sea turtle and plenty of amazing whale action all from the lanai. Feels secluded and private......simply amazing!!!
