Private Homes house description
Hale Nene Poipu is an elegant plantation-style house with a private private pool/spa and 270 degrees of stunning golf, lake, sunset and ocean views. A glass entryway leads to an upper-story great room with vaulted, wood-inlaid ceilings and stone floors throughout the dining, kitchen, and living areas. Glass doors recess completely into the walls to reveal a covered lanai from which you can hear the ocean and enjoy the built-in BBQ, tradewinds and wide-open view. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a Wolf gas range and mountain views.The upper floor includes a private master King suite with vaulted, wood-inlaid ceilings and golf, sunset and ocean views.The spacious master bath includes a soaking tub, a stone-lined walk-in shower and walk-in closet.The two-story floor plan allows families and guests their own separate quarters, also with ocean view, in a second complete master suite and bath, a downstairs media area and a third bedroom with two twins and a third full bath.
Hale Nene Poipu is named for the wild, Hawaiian geese that gather near the lake. The over 3000 sq ft house is particularly airy and light and sits on the gentle greens of the Kiahuna golf course. The house faces South-West toward the ocean and sunsets so the evening light can extend into the living area. The upper-story living space with retractable glass doors which open up to the covered lanai also allow for the gentle tradewinds to breeze through the stone-floored living areas, lined with windows. The in-laid wood, vaulted ceilings reflect a Hawaiian home aesthetic and also provide a glow of soffit lighting in the evening hours. The home is on the Kiahuna golf course, designed Robert Trent Jones Jr. and one of eight world-class courses on Kauai which have views of the open sea and lush greenery that defines Kauai. Hale Nene Poipu is a quiet refuge surrounded by the course, but it is also in the heart of the Poipu, with its pretty beaches, restaurants, boutiques, spas & golf.
Amenities within walking distance : A mile from the house is the Poipu Shopping Village, which has island-theme boutiques and galleries, as well as a Starbuck's Coffee; a Roy's Restaurant with a bar looking out over the courtyard and fusion Hawaiian cuisine; Keoki's Paradise, a fun island/tiki torch garden restaurant; art galleries; a general store with many basic groceries and island items such as grass mats and Kona coffee, the addictive Puka Dog stand with its fresh lemonade; Kauai-made gelato shop; surfing clothing stores and free Hula shows on a shaded, outdoor stage put on by the local hula school.

It was like staying at home...
It was like staying at home...
This year our family decided to take a trip together for a winter getaway, and landed on the island of Kauai. We knew we wanted to find a house so that we could enjoy the time together, and the convenience of having everything at our fingertips for cooking and relaxing together. We had no idea that we would find a place that felt like home! Immediately when you walk in the house it takes your breath away. All of the touches are beautiful, and every little last thing you would need or want for a perfect Kauai vacation is taken care of. Since there were three of us couples, we especially appreciated the separate bedrooms with baths so you could have the privacy you normally would in a hotel but with the comfort a home brings. The best part of the stay, however, was how the owners welcomed us into their home. I have to agree with another reviewer, that I am not sure I would share this beautiful property but I am so grateful they did! Since this was our first time to Kauai, we did not know what to expect and had quite a few questions both about the home as well as the local area. She was always prompt about making sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. The hardest part of the whole vacation was leaving. We are counting down the days until we can come back again. Thank you for a world class vacation at your lovely home!

Amazing Poipu Rental House
Amazing Poipu Rental House
We spent a week at Hale Nene Poipu and we did not want to leave. We tried to rent this house for two weeks but unfortunately it was booked. I picked this house based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. The description of the house on the website couldn’t have been more precise. We found the house in meticulous condition with a state-of-the-art kitchen with every utensil, pan, plate and glass that we could possibly need. We only ate out one of the nights because it was such a joy to cook in the kitchen and BBQ our meats and fish on the outdoor gas BBQ! I especially liked the huge bathrooms with walk-in showers, huge walk-in closets, comfy beds and great views. There were so many amenities provided by the owners including aluminum foil, saran wrap, spices, laundry soap, q-tips, facial cotton pads, full size containers of shampoo and conditioners in each bath and the lists goes on! All the beach equipment was neatly organized in the garage with towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, suntan lotion and bug spray. We have rented many homes and this house was by far the best vacation home I have ever rented. Every morning we walked about a mile to Starbucks for our morning exercise. At dusk, after the golfers were gone, we walked the golf cart path round-trip from Hole 4 to Hole 1, watching the sunset in the distance. I cannot say enough good things about the owners. The booking process was very easy and Elise always answered my emails and texts immediately. The owners go above and beyond to make the renters stay comfortable. We used to stay at Poipu every year when our children were little. After the hurricane, it took a while to rebuild Poipu so we started to vacation elsewhere. We are so impressed with all of the improvements in Poipu. We will definitely be back. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.

Hale Nene Poipu was incredibly beautiful! Our group (4 adults) had never been to Kauai so we did not know what to expect -- we were debating on either renting something right on the beach or this home, and we were so glad we decided to rent here instead! We found that there were many great beaches on Poipu and the rest of Kauai to explore and driving/parking was never an issue, and the views from the house to the golf course and ocean view were just as spectacular. The home itself is simply gorgeous and everything (furniture/floors/counters/etc) is incredibly high quality. The two master bedrooms were huge and magnificent! The house is also stocked -- Boogie boards, scooters, snorkel gear, grill and utensils, all sorts of condiments, etc. Having a private swimming pool was a great way to wind down from an active day. The pool was very warm and relaxing, and the the spa heats up in minutes. The home is the only one on its side of the road (currently), so at night in the backyard it feels very private and relaxing, it was very nice to just lay in the pool and look up at the stars. The only people I wouldn't recommend this home to are those who are looking for a rowdy/party house, the neighborhood is very quiet and the house is far too lovely to want to treat poorly! But for everyone else who would enjoy a relaxing stay in Kauai in a beautiful luxury home, Hale Nene Poipu is ideal. Staying here was a huge part of the reason our group will have such fond memories of Kauai.

Visiting from San Diego
The house is amazingly beautiful with awesome furnishings. The location was great for the Poipu area (close to all). Elise was very responsive to any questions & gave great suggestions. They seem like very nice people. The pool was small & the spa was very small (3 was very crowded & 4 wasn't an option). I was nervous with the amount of rules and all of the possible extra fees, but my jr high kids were very well behaved so not an issue for us. The easily shredded grass blinds & very light carpet probably not the best for a vacation rental but we were just really careful & I opened/closed the blinds for the kids. It was a big beautiful house!

Highly RecommendedGuest comment entered by owner
We stayed at Hale Nene this this past July (2013) and have never looked back! The house was perfect for all seven family members including two grandsons, ages 6 and 7. Loved the pool and spa – they were the perfect ticket for keeping the boys (and family) active when not at one of the beautiful beaches or exploring Kauai. The area is quiet and offers beautiful vistas to the ocean across the Kiahuna Plantation Golf Course and to the north east is a great view of some of the island mountains. If we were to grade the property on a scale of one to ten, it would be an easy 10+! Highly recommend it for families or multiple couples. Thank you, Elise and family for sharing your beautiful home and if we travel to Kauai again, Hale Nene is our destination! Aloha. The Davis Family

Felt like a luxury resort in a peaceful setting
Hi Elise - Kelly and I wanted to take a moment to write you a quick note about our vacation. We had such an amazing & memorable stay at your home, Hale Nene Poipu! Just to set the stage, we indeed had very high expectations for this trip in particular, for multiple reasons: 1) we were celebrating our 10-year anniversary 2) it was our 4th time staying in Poipu 3) we were bringing other family members along who were also celebrating key moments in their lives (and visiting Poipu for the first time), and 4) we had rented other homes previously in the area. That being said, your home definitely is definitely all (and more) than you have listed about it. Thought I would just list a few highlights that really differentiated it from the other homes/condos we have rented before in the area: Great location: within walking distance to beaches, early morning breakfast or happy hour Amazing views: we could see everything from the mountains to the ocean and overlook one of Poipu's best golf courses Amenities galore: everything from the salt water pool, manicured lawns and interior décor (including top-of-the-line appliances and baths), to the soft ceiling lighting, made us truly feel like we were staying at a luxury resort Peaceful setting: neighbors were friendly and respectful, and we were just far enough from any other civilization so we could spend the entire night counting the stars Additionally, you were also a key factor in making this vacation so special. Your responsiveness was impeccable, including answering my text messages and emails within minutes when we had a couple of questions during our stay. And, although we had been to the island previously, you also sent over recommendations in advance for where to rent a car, what attractions were worthwhile, and also included a set of menus for all of the local eats in the area for those nights where we just wanted to order some takeout and stay in for the night and enjoy Hale Nene. In short, we have truly had the best vacation yet in Poipu, one that exceeded all of our expectations, and it was largely due to the wonderful home and service that you provided to us as your guests. We truly felt like family, and cannot wait to return to Hale Nene! Thank you so much!! Aloha, Gary

Hi Elise, Wanted to thank you once again for the use of your house on Kauai. We had a wonderful time in the house and on Kauai. The house and grounds are beautiful. The family loved it. Thank you also for the use of the chairs and umbrellas. Had a wonderful time. We did take a helicopter ride with Jack Harter Helicopters. It was so awesome, I highly recommend it and well worth the cost. Mahalo, Marty

Outstanding StayGuest comment entered by owner
Our stay at Hale Nene Poipu was outstanding. My wife and I, our two girls (ages 6 and 4), and grandma and grandpa all felt immediately at home upon entering the house. The neighborhood was quiet. We enjoyed having the two master bedrooms and the girls felt right at home in the 3rd bedroom. The views of the golf course and ocean from the generous upstairs balcony were lovely and it was a favorite spot to sit and sip our coffee in the mornings. The private pool and jacuzzi in the backyard were a hit with all of us. Our girls especially loved being able to swim and play in the water. It was very convenient to prepare meals and have everyone close by when it was time to eat. We would definitely love to stay at Hale Nene Poipu again! Aloha, Steve

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are working professionals who live in Anchorage, Alaska. After 20 years of camping and squeezing into a condo on Kauai, we bought Hale Nene Poipu as our vacation home to escape the cold Alaska winter and to enjoy Kauai in a more spacious, private and luxurious setting. We have two boys who spend hours in the pool and continue their beginning boogie boarding and snorkeling adventures around the Poipu area. We like to be busy, but also appreciate privacy and the an expansive, peaceful view, so this property really appealed to us. On-island, we are fortunate to work with a tight-knit group of trusted tradespeople who take excellent care of our home and our guests. Aloha!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Kauai is well-known for it's tropical beauty; one friend noted it was like a theme park - with fragrant flowers in the breeze, rainbows, and white sand beaches. It is also a mellow island with a distinct tropical feel, but with plenty of restaurants, shopping, snorkeling, hiking and biking to keep us busy. Hale Nene Poipu appealed to us because we like to be very active and all our favorite beaches, walking and biking are right out our door. However, we also like to have a peaceful refuge and the house, with its huge views and outdoor/indoor living areas, is quiet and feels secluded and private.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
As this is our private vacation home, we take care to keep it in the best condition. We also have a personal interest in our guests enjoying their holiday and we welcome them to enjoy Hale Nene as their own private luxury vacation home.
