'Sansei Hale' (Third Generation House) was built in 2005. It is a luxury vacation rental home overlooking the beautiful private Waikomo Stream as it meets the ocean in Turtle Cove, Poipu. It has three bedrooms (2 kings and 1 twin set) and three full bathrooms in a stunning, private setting. Both king beds are 'Select-Comfort Dual Control.' All bedrooms, living and dining have remote controlled AC units and ceiling fans throughout. The home has easy ground access to the large downstairs area that encompasses one bedroom/bath, living room, kitchen, dining area, and a spacious covered lanai with ocean and river views. Barbecue on the lanai, watch the stream roll into the Pacific Ocean, and enjoy the starry nights while falling asleep to the wonderful sounds of the stream and ocean.
The fully-equipped kitchen features granite countertops, with a center island and bar stools. The dining area, which seats six, is open to a living room featuring an entertainment center, 42' flat screen TV with TIVO, DVD player, and CD sound system. Slate floors and island-style furnishings complement the setting. The grounds are lush with tropical flowers and trees and cooled by the ocean trade winds. Steps take you to the stream below and to Turtle Cove, true to its name each evening.
The second floor has an ocean viewing deck, 2 bedrooms/2 baths and a bonus room with a queen sofa bed. The cathedral-ceiling bonus room also has a wet bar with mini-refrigerator and microwave. The entire home can accommodate seven people, with two king-size beds, two twins, and a sofa sleeper. The sleeping areas allow for space, comfort, and privacy for a wonderful island experience for couples and/or the entire family.
World famous Poipu Beach Park, the National Botanical Gardens and Spouting Horn are about a mile down the coast. Baby Beach is one block away. Koloa Landing, an excellent snorkeling and shore scuba diving spot, is just off the shore of the river mouth which is adjacent to the house. It is also known as Turtle Cove as turtles gather there throughout the year as their sleeping spot. Tennis, Golf (including Poipu Bay, home of the PGA Grand Slam), and excellent surfing are within minutes. Fine dining abounds, ranging from elegant to casual, garden settings to oceanfront.
We hope you come to visit our Sansei Hale and experience the local Hawaiian island escape.

About: Aloha from Garen and Susan McCune, owners of Sansei Hale!
Sansei Hale, is our Hawaiiana HOME where you will relax—enjoy the privacy of the stream AND the ocean, watch the fish and rare birds in the stream just below the deck, see the turtles in the cove, and soak up the genuine aloha that is truly Kauai.
Susan was born and raised on this very spot, surrounded by avocados, mangos, bananas, star fruit, pamello—all of which are still here. Susan’s playground was Baby Beach, Kukuiula Landing, Poipu Beach and Koloa Town…also all still here! Garen, the consummate adventurer, knows the island’s hiking, diving, exploring. Both of us would love to share our wealth of information to enhance your Kauai experience.
GLM Custom Homes is the McCune family business in Granite Bay, CA. A custom home builder of 30 years, Garen designed and constructed Sansei Hale on our Miyahara family property in 2005. The McCune children, Jason and Tricia, celebrated both their weddings at Sansei Hale, overlooking Waikomo Stream and Turtle Cove. Several guests to our home have also chosen our home to celebrate their own weddings and anniversaries.
“Sansei is the number 3 in Japanese, and “hale” means “home” in Hawaiian. Susan is the third generation of Hawaii’s Japanese immigrants that settled in Koloa Town…hence, with honor and love we call our home, Sansei Hale, “third generation home.” Today, a blended family of Hapas (racially mixed), we embrace our cosmopolitan/Hawaiian heritage, particularly our Kauai culture. With warm aloha, we welcome you to share our piece of paradise and call it “home” too as you enjoy the truly local experience of Sansei Hale. Once you do, we hope you will return again and again as many of our guests do!
Come share our island paradise!
