Experienced surfers can catch large-breaking waves further out beyond the reef. Brennecke Beach is renowned for body surfing and boogie boarding.

About Ala Muku Vacation Rentals-Juliana & Jim Cherry

Juliana and Jim own 2 homes in Kauai and manage a number of other beautiful homes and condos. They began visiting the Garden Island in 1997 and now are permanent residents. Juliana is a licensed real estate broker in Hawaii. Her special enjoyment is gardening. She loves to share the many wonderful features of Kauai with her visitors, especially the great beauty of the local botanical gardens. Jim is a builder of many years and now enjoys semi-retirement while keeping his hands busy with the occasional remodel.

Why Ala Muku Vacation Rentals-Juliana & Jim Cherry chose Poipu

Kauai is truly the 'garden island', with its many beautiful water features and planned construction which virtually eliminates high rises. The warm sandy beaches and friendly local residents always make you feel comfortable away from home.

What makes this house unique

The Poipu area is on the warm sunny south side of Kauai. It is definitely a great destination with its many sandy beaches, boutiques, and wonderful restaurants. It is just a short drive to the airport, as well as the west, east and north sides of the island.

We loved it. Our group of 10 and the property became instant friends.

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything it was advertised to be and more. The Cherry's are great people. They're thoughtful, kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. The property is perfectly located to all the things we wanted to do. Access to the fitness club and its many amenities was a hit with our younger children, ages 8, 6, and 3. Especially the water slide. The outside table and the grill was a perfect gathering place for a meal and conversation of the day. The house is well stocked with the necessities. We were there for 9 days so we had to get more of certain items, but that was expected and not a big deal. The kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary cooking utensils and very functional. We especially liked having access to a washer and dryer. That allowed us to pack less items and keep the items we brought clean. There is plenty of beach towels provided as well as chairs, coolers, sand toys for our 3 year old, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and all kinds of beach stuff.

The entire experience was great. From the initial booking, communication with the owners, follow up questions answered in a timely manner, all the way through driving directions to the property.

We could not have chose a better home away from home. The property and its owners made our long awaited family vacation to Kauai a success.

Owner's Response: Aloha Brett and family, It was fun meeting you and crew. Sorry we didn't get together for a chat on the porch, but it seemed that you had a pretty full agenda. Juliana and I are so glad you enjoyed your time on this lovely island. Hope to see you again sometime. Best regards, Jim

Feels like coming home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time in the past several years that we've had our family join us at Ala Muku for a week on Kauai. This lovely home is well loved and cared for by Jim & Juliana Cherry. They make us feel so welcome each time we come and we appreciate knowing that they aren't far away if we have a question or suggestion. The home is spacious - plenty of room for the 8 of us and would comfortably fit even more visitors. There are four bedrooms including our favorite - the master suite!

The kitchen is well stocked with pretty much every kitchen gadget that you might need and the dining room has plenty of room for everyone. They have a nice library of paperback books and plenty of games to play at the table. They also have beach towels for everyone and an assortment of snorkel gear, beach mats, boogie boards, beach toys and picnic cooler. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood about a half mile away from Poipu Beach. It's a nice walk if you are so inclined, or a short drive if you want to want to load up the kids and their toys to go play at the beach.

This is a great place for a small family reunion, or just a treat for the kids and grandkids! We truly feel like we're coming home each time we visit! Mahalo!

Lovely Hawaiian home

  • 4 of 5

Or stay in this home was absolutely perfect. Jim and his wife were very helpful and friendly. They made the home very welcoming for us after traveling all day. We loved the Hawaiian decor it had. The house is equipped with everything that you need in perfect condition. The quality of the furniture and carpet along with its amenities were just like being at home. The bed’s were comfortable for us and we absolutely enjoyed the recreational equipment that was in the garage for us to use. For example boogie boards, ice chest, beach chairs, and beach towels along with some snorkeling gear. Kitchen was very easy to use but I would recommend a better set of steak knives. The home inside and out was perfect. The owners brought us several mangoes from their tree almost daily and we enjoyed them very much. The home does not have air conditioning but it had a nice breeze throughout the day. It’s location was perfect and very close to the beach and shops. The neighborhood was friendly and quiet. There was plenty of storage for us to utilize. The home was equipped with dishes and even hangers in the closet for us to hang our clothes. There was even games and movies for us to watch and relax. I quite enjoyed having to coffee pot maker’s although one didn’t seem to work that well sometimes. The Wi-Fi was easy to set up and it came equipped with a book of information on the home and location of several hotspots and attractions that we helped ourselves too. Overall I would definitely rent this home again. Thank you so much for a fantastic home away from home!

Perfect for our whole family

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 5 adults staying and it was perfect for us. Spacious, well appointed and comfortable. It really had everything we needed and was only a short walk from either the beach or the fitness centre which we made great use of. I couldn't think of anything that would have made it more perfect for our whole family

Great place for family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for a family gathering of 8 adults and a 5 yr. old. House is very well equipped/furnished and is spacious with the 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. Near enough to the beach, and grocery stores within a few miles. Beach play toys, chairs, and towels were readily available in the garage, and usage of the washer and dryer helpful. Nice place to relax, and lots of brochures of "things to do" and "places to go" were available. Owners are friendly and helpful. We had a great week's stay.
