Maluhia ma ka Honua is an almost oceanfront Kauai vacation rental home at Poipu Beach Park.

'Last time we came to Kauai we stayed at a $2000 per night house on the beach and everyone agreed we liked your house even better (for a much better value!)' JM, Orange, CA 11/28/09.

Come to Poipu and experience a true Hawaiian beach experience! Like the Hawaiians, come to the beach, gather at the sand and spend hours 'talking story'. Use the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean as your swimming pool. Laugh and enjoy the weather and life. Maluhia ma ka Honua was designed to offer an old Hawaiian beach experience with all the modern amenities and comfort and with the ocean as our swimming pool because it is so close to the house. Isn't this why you are coming to Poipu, for the weather, the beach, and the ocean?

Previous guests have responded by loving this house and having some of the best family vacations of their lives. Maybe it is the Aloha that resides within the house because of the blessings during construction. Or maybe it is the floorplan that has plenty of private places for two or more people to sit and 'talk story' like the Hawaiians. Or maybe it is the location, just 40 seconds walk to the ocean and two minutes stroll to swimming and sunning at Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park. Whatever the reason, they have left behind hundreds of warm comments in our guestbook, and you can see every one of them by clicking on our 'Guest Comments' above.

From the moment you walk in the front door, through the charming entry foyer into the great room, you will feel right at home! After staring at the fourteen foot high vaulted wood ceiling, you will notice that this room is totally open to the outside lanai through five sliding glass doors. The size of the room allows large, comfortable furniture and every amenity. There is seating at the TV for six, a separate game table for two, and the most comfortable chaise lounge for one. The kitchen has everything needed for gourmet cooking or just casual dining. It becomes the center of attention because of the counter bar with four stools. The oval glass dining table seats eight comfortably under a beautiful chandelier. Outside is 1300 square feet of covered lanai that is perfect for outdoor dining, reading or just the times you want to be out of the weather. Next to the lanai is a large private lawn with chaise lounges for sunbathing when you don't want to walk down to the beach

Each bedroom brings new delights. The large downstairs master bedroom has a king-size bed and oversized bamboo bedroom furniture with a television and two glass sliding doors leading to the covered lanai and the lawn. Its bathroom has two lavatories, an oversized tiled shower with glass block, a two-person Jacuzzi tub, and an separate toilet compartment. The outdoor shower is just outside this bathroom. The equally large upstairs master bedroom has a king-size bed, large rattan furniture with a television, a wood vaulted ceiling, a nice oceanview balcony just past the glass sliding door. Over the bed is an original oil painting of Hawaii by famed artist Ezra Muir. The bathroom is identical to the downstairs bathroom except it has a two-person soaking tub. The third bedroom is the largest bedroom and has a great ocean view. It has two twin beds that can be converted to a king bed, a vaulted wood ceiling and rattan furniture. Its bathroom has one lavatory, a toilet and a tub/shower.

The fourth bathroom is the powder room downstairs complete with a tiled shower. The laundry room features a washer, dryer and a soaking sink.

'Maluhia ma ka Honua' (Peace on Earth) is a private, luxurious Kauai rental vacation home located just steps to the oceanfront at Poipu Beach Park on the south shore of Kauai. It is a great home for family vacations or for very private Kauai honeymoons after a romantic Hawaiian wedding.

'Maluhia ma ka Honua' was built in 1998. It is a luxurious 2650 square foot beach house designed with the feel of an original plantation and detailed, decorated, and appointed to perfection. Beneath a vaulted, fan-cooled ceiling, the large, modern kitchen and the huge great room open up to the surrounding 1300 square foot covered lanai. Three spacious bedrooms each have a large, private bathroom, and every room is cross-ventilated for comfort.

Three wonderful restaurants are within walking distance and at least nine others are nearby. Two resorts with Robert Trent Jones golf courses are within one mile.

This house is 'value priced' to give you a wonderful Kauai vacation and give you good value. You will spend so much time and money just getting to Kauai, and the rental cars and meals can be expensive. You deserve to stay in a really nice home and Maluhia ma ka Honua is nice enough that it would easily rent for $600/night if it were one house closer to the ocean. So come and take advantage of this great value and please don't let our low rental rate keep you from renting this spectacular house.

This house is fully licensed by the County of Kauai! (#TV3716)

For smaller families, we also own two other Kauai rental vacation homes. AKALA PUA is our other new three bedroom/three bathroom home and AHE LANI is our new two bedroom/two bathroom home. Click on 'All My Poipu Rental Houses' below to view them!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: Aloha from Jim and Valorie Wisda. We recentlyt moved to Scottsdale, Arizona from Palos Verdes Estates, California where we raised a wonderful son and daughter. We have been coming to Poipu since 1970 and no matter how often we travel to other places or countries we visit like this photo taken on a Bangkok river boat, we always look forward to coming back to Poipu several times a year.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We are used to nice things in our mainland home and that is how we built Maluhia ma ka Honua, to be our home on Kauai. We could have built it anywhere on the island, but for one or two week stays Poipu cannot be beat because it has the best weather possible. We also wanted to be near the action, walk a short distance to the beach and a couple of restaurants. This location has a nice little micro-climate because it is in the leeward side of a small hill.
