Step through the door and feel the aloha. The great room is the center of the home and opens onto the expansive screened lanai and the tranquil garden in the private back yard beyond. Both the kitchen and master bedroom also open to the lanai which offers dining on the kitchen end and a conversation area outside the master. The two downstairs bedrooms are on opposite sides of the great room for added privacy. Each bedroom has air conditioning and a TV and there is a 47-in 'smart' HDTV in the great room. For those of you who need to stay in touch with the real world, we offer wireless Internet service. There are ceiling fans throughout, including the lanai. The newly upgraded kitchen makes preparing meals at home a pleasure as well as a huge money saver. We also provide everything you'll need to enjoy a day at the beach: snorkel gear, boogie boards, umbrella, coolers, beach chairs and mats, surfboard, beach towels. We also include a crib, high chair, jog stroller and play yard. A much greater value than a hotel.
Owners profile: Aloha kakou - Hale Mahina Kauai is owned and operated by Dennis and Gail. Our home is newly upgraded, beautifully appointed and awaits your arrival.
We honeymooned on Kauai in 1971, returning every chance we got until fate, hard work and a generous dose of good luck combined to see us move here permanently in 2004. When friends on the mainland ask us when we're moving back we answer simply, 'We're not.' A deep love of our island and extensive local experience permit us to share our learning and understanding with our guests. We are happy to offer as little or as much advice as you desire to make your vacation in Hale Mahina an incredible experience, full of fond memories. We want you to enjoy your stay so much that you will return again and again.
Location, location, location!: Hale Mahina is conveniently located in the lushly landscaped 70 acre Poipu Kai Resort, a collection of single family homes and condos, which is nestled along the paved greenbelt between the Grand Hyatt Resort and Poipu Beach Park. The single family home is a mere 5-10 minute walk from 3 beaches, the Resort's pool, jacuzzi and 8 tennis courts, the Grand Hyatt Resort, numerous restaurants and activities. Koloa town is 3 miles away and offers additional restaurants, shops and grocery stores. Poipu is the perfect jumping off spot for touring this incredibly beautiful island. It is centrally located between the lush north shore and the spectacular west side with its Waimea Canyon and Na Pali coast overlook. At the end of your day of touring or beaching it, you can relax on the tranquil lanai with an 'umbrella drink' or walk to Poipu Beach to watch one of the south shore's spectacular sunsets. It's your vacation. You decide!
