Ala Muku, Hawaiian for "rainbow fragment" is a slice of paradise which offers you and your family and friends a relaxed, comfortable home base to enjoy and explore the beauty, activities, and natural wonders of Kauai. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood, this home is about a half mile to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke Beach

Surrounded by lush tropical foliage, Ala Muku is a beautifully appointed 2,500 sq. ft. home with festive island decor to enhance your stay in paradise. Relax and socialize in the many indoor and outdoor spaces. On the western front porch the palm fronds rustle in the gentle breeze of the Pacific trade winds. The plush sofas in the living room invite a nap or an opportunity to be entertained with music, satellite TV with free Netflix movie streaming, or DVD/VHS.

All your culinary needs can be met in the cook's kitchen with its abundant counter space, up-to-date appliances and utensils. The dining room with atrium-like ambiance seats 10 people with additional dining for 4 in the kitchen nook. The back patio, shaded by the red-blooming Royal Poinciana with orchids blooming at its base, is a lovely spot for lounging and BBQing. The garden setting is private, peaceful and exotic.

This Kauai home offers: A perfect setup for 2-4 couples vacationing together, a family reunion or accommodations for wedding guests (sleeps up to 10).

Mala Pua- the "garden" master suite is on the main level with a king bed and daybed, TV and DVD player. The spacious bathroom with a walk-in tiled shower offers lush garden views.

Kumulani- (base of sky) is the vaulted upstairs master suite that captures majestic mountain views. It features a king bed, TV and DVD player, bath with tiled shower.

The Hula Room features a double bed with a whimsical hula decor theme.

The Blue Room is equipped with 3 twin beds. Two can be converted into a king size bed to meet your needs.

For large parties (up to 10) with children we have 2 inflatable beds.

To accommodate younger children we have baby gates and a play-n-pack for mom's convenience.

Turn on your laptop anywhere on the property and enjoy high-speed wireless internet access. Our satellite TV offers 100 channels plus. We now feature unlimited movie streaming from our Netflix account over the TV. Choose your favorite movie and settle down to watch uninterrupted viewing on the new LCD flat screen TV

The garage is equipped with laundry facilities, 5 bicycles and helmets, and beach gear. (This saves you $$ on recreational equipment fees.)

Poipu Beach offers a sheltered cove called "Baby Beach" where toddlers play in the sand and splash in the shallow waters. A few steps away in the clear warm water, colorful tropical fish swim beneath as you just feet from the shore. The calm waters and gentle waves are enjoyed by swimmers of all capabilities. Experienced surfers can catch large-breaking waves further out beyond the reef. Brennecke Beach, at the east end of the park, is renowned for body surfing and boogie boarding.

If you bring your camera you may be able to capture on film a Monk Seal sleeping off a meal on the beach. Seals are protected so don't approach too closely.

Within a 2 mile radius of the house you will find two golf courses, some of Kauai's finest restaurants and charming island boutiques. When you venture beyond Poipu you will find a virtual paradise of activities: helicopter tours, horseback riding, river and ocean kayaking, whale-watching, botanical garden tours and much more, including the spectacular NaPali Coast and the Waimea Canyon (Grand Canyon of the Pacific).

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 South Shore

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.

Last week of May in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Nice spacious house. A bit of a walk to the beach but a quick ride if you go on the bikes provided. Loved riding the bikes around the beach trails. There are five bikes but not all are working 100%. Some of them the seats wont adjust, some wont shift gears but they work for beach cruisers. Boogie boards provided but only 3 had leashes which are required. Lots of beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, and snorkeling gear ( we did not use, brought our own snorkeling gear). Really nice to have all that right there.

The owners were right there if you needed anything! It was well kept. Everything you needed to cook, BBQ, etc was there. Lots of towels for the bathrooms and access to a W/D. It worked out perfectly for our group of 6. We even had a room we did not use!

Beds were comfortable and layout of house perfect for us. I would highly recommend it. We were even able to get a late check out from the owners. Having the property owners right there makes it really nice, they were very kind and accommodating.

Wonderful Family Gathering Home

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 2 children 3 & 1. This was a home for us for 9 days. Everything you could ask for was available. Truly well stocked kitchen (excluding food) Enough room for all. Was easy and comfortable, more than I even expected. So worthy and Jim & Juliana are so very kind and accommodating. BBQ was fabulous all the gear for beach and bikes to ride, everything you would desire for a beach and sightseeing is offered . I call it a home because it felt like one , not just a place to stay. Absolutely Fabulous.

Great for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house is close enough to walk easily to poipu beach, several restaurants. Would have given 5 stars except we felt it was a home better suited to families with older kids- our 3 and under crowd of kids had a harder time napping and sleeping without AC and having the windows open- early morning roosters means early morning risers! That beings said, Jim and Juliana are lovely and take care of everything you need, their level of customer service is just top notch. The house also has a lot of beach chairs, toys, mats, etc. which was nice.

Exceptional rental home near Poipu, Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation was exceptional. Very clean, comfortable and unbelievably stocked with every kitchen utensil you could possibly need as well as laundry soap, dish soap, etc and a very good BBQ. Lots of beach towels, beach toys and chairs were also provided and 4 bikes were available. Terrific kitchen with top quality appliances and lots of storage. There were 10 of us including four young children and the home was large enough to enable us to have our own "space" inside plus a large deck outside. Located in a very quiet area about 5 minutes from local shopping areas and half an hour from major shopping in Lihue and about a 15 minute walk to a great beach for kids. Having a washer and dryer at our disposal was extremely convenient.The owners were very helpful and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending this superior accommodation.

Spacieux, près de la plage

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 6 adultes mais même avec 2 ou 3 personnes de plus il y a assez d'espace. Grandes tables dehors et à l'intérieure. La maison est bien équippée et il y a des body boards, du matériel de plage et des vélos à disposition dans le garage. Ceux-ci ne sont pas en excellent état, mais quand même fonctionnels et avec casques, cadenas... Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la proximité de la plage (en fait, 3 ou 4 plages à caractère très différent sont assez près pour y aller à pied ou en vélo, y compris des plages très jolies et sauvages). Les propriétaires habitent juste dérrière, mais ceci ne pose pas de problème; ils sont à la fois chaleureux et discrets.

Comfortable home.

  • 4 of 5

It was a very comfortable house in a great location. The only issue our party (9 people) had was it didn't have air conditioning. I didn't have a problem with that at all as I don't like air conditioning and the breezes kept it nice. Owners were very nice and accommodating.
