Private Homes house description
Hale Nene Poipu is an elegant plantation-style house with private pool/spa, 3,000sq ft of living space and stunning golf, lake, sunset and open ocean views. The 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 fully-covered lanai from which you can hear the ocean, enjoy the built-in BBQ and views of the salt water pool/spa and out across to golf course, lake, sunset and distant, open ocean views. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a Wolf gas range and mountain views. See our Homeaway website listing (#360128)for additional detail.
The upper floor also 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 guests their own separate quarters with a second complete master suite and bath, a downstairs media room and a third bedroom with two twins and a third full bath.
Hale Nene Poipu is named after the wild, Hawaiian geese that gather near the lake. The 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, a Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course, one of eight world-class courses on Kauai which capture 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 crescent beaches, open-air restaurants, great trails and sidewalks for running and early morning walks (or scooters - our favorite), fun little shops, spas and golf.

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.

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

Feels like a real vacation!
Hi Elise! Thank you for the warm welcome home! We truly had a amazing time! Your home had a lot to do with that. First of all the location off the golf course made the vacation...feel like a vacation! A real vacation! Even my close friend who is a native local, said she felt like she was on a vacation when she visited us! The home was clean and every detail was considered. The scooters were perfect for two busy little boys! The pool was wonderful for the whole family! The temperature of both the pool and spa was perfect as well! The view we had of the golf course and the pond was more than we could have asked for! Thank you again for letting us stay in your home! We are already planning our return dates next year! Over the twenty years I have been visiting the island since I last lived there, I could not imagine staying any place else. That is except for our own home located on the lot next to yours! You will be hearing from me again soon! Thanks again! You have been a real pleasure to talk to! Aloha, Gina

Hale Nene Poipu is Perfection!
Hale Nene Poipu is Perfection!
My family of 5 (ages 11 to 75) spent 8 wonderful days and nights at Hale Nene Poipu and could not have found any house more perfect for us. We plan to return every year for many years to come. This amazing home far exceeded our expectations. It is huge, providing lots of space to enjoy time together and moments of quiet solitude. The house feels both luxurious and extremely comfortable. Elise has filled it with everything one could possibly need or want –completely stocked gourmet kitchen and bathrooms, extremely comfortable furniture, boogie boards, beach chairs and towels, board games, and guide books. The house is also perfectly situated – on a quiet street with easy access to all that Kauai has to offer – only minutes from amazing beaches, snorkeling (we saw sea turtles starting on day 1 at a spot Elise recommended), surfing, boogie boarding and one of the best fish markets (Koloa Fish Market) on the Island. We bought fish at this market and relaxed at the house while cooking the fish on the lanai grill and watching the parrots fly over the golf course almost every evening. The house is also a convenient location for day trips to Waimea Canyon, Hanalei Bay, the Na Pali Coast, whale watching and sunset sails. While staying at Hale Nene Poipu, we felt like we were in paradise from the moment we woke up to the moment we went to sleep. Thank you Elise for making your home our home for 8 perfect days.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are working professionals who live in Anchorage, Alaska. After over 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 enjoy 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 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.
