Private Homes house description

Hale Nani Kai, 'House of the Beautiful Sea', is one of the last original 'sugar shacks' left on the south shore of Kauai. Hale Nani Kai takes you back to the days of a simpler Kauai... vast ocean views, the sound of waves crashing on the lava shore, and the simplicity of island life 50 years ago.
Hale Nani Kai is a true beach house. Let the sounds of the waves lull you into an afternoon nap, enjoy lazy days on the magnificent lanai in the shade with a good book or just gaze out on the gorgeous South Shore view of Brenneke's and Poipu Beaches. Be entertained in whale season with your front row seats for whales and their calves and the year round turtles that frequent the shore.
Hale Nani Kai has two bedrooms, each with a comfortable king bed and bathroom en suite. The living room has a full sized sleeper sofa. The decor is beach house casual, boasting both indoor and outdoor dining areas for 6. The kitchen is well stocked for meals in, and a gas BBQ for the grillers in your family waits on the lanai. There are laundry facilities on the premises and beach chairs, towels, umbrellas to take on your short walk to the beach or to enjoy Hale Nani Kai’s private lawn. The sunset views of Hale Nani Kai are breathtaking, and a wonderful treat to return to at the end of the day from wherever your adventures have taken you.

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About: We first moved to the Islands in 1988 and lived in Oahu. One trip to Kauai and we were HOOKED! We bought property in Poipu in 1996 and keep coming back! We live in Texas full time and love to share the blessing of this home while we are away.

          Why Private Homes:
          We had owned a condo previously and wanted to have a little more privacy and space. We found this jewel in the middle of Poipu and have loved it ever since! The location is perfect for walking to either Poipu Beach Park or the Hyatt, Shipwreck Beach. The vast open view from the lanai was the selling point for us as well as the uniqueness of this old house! We have updated it, but tried to maintain the old, cottage style living it was intended for when it was built in 1962. It has withstood hurricanes and storms, hosted many families and friends, been the spot for various Hawaiian musical concerts and countless delicious meals served and enjoyed over the years. It's the real Kauai. So many incredible memories for us and no doubt many more to come!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Huge covered lanai, spectacular ocean view, privacy, location, sounds of waves crashing all day and night, whale watching, grassy lawn
