Just out of reach of the busy resorts and nestled only two blocks from world class Poipu Beach, in the cozy Weli-Weli neighborhood, Kipuka Street is a real community with welcoming, friendly, and helpful neighbors.
Whether you need a home base to explore Kauai for a week, or whether you want to fold into the Hawaiian lifestyle for a few months, Hale Akamai is set up to be your Poipu home away from home.
We stroll to Poipu Beach from the front door in 10 minutes or less. We roll our bikes there and are in the waves in just a few minutes, and we drive in about same amount of time.
The house sits on an 11,200 SF lot and features a big lush back yard with a huge monkey pod tree that keeps the house and yard cool when the beach is too hot. Help yourself to amazing grapefruits when in season. We love to trade with the neighbors for mangoes, avocados, lemons or whatever else is going off at the time. We particularly enjoy the yard for barbecuing and relaxing in the evenings. The backyard is cool in many ways.
The interior is 1104 SF with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and a smaller bunk room that comfortably sleeps 4 adults and 2 kids. We maintain a very clean, barefoot and sand free, house.
The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for making delicious meals. We love to go the fish market, hit the local farmer's markets, and cook at home. But if you prefer dining out, The Eating House, Keoki's, The Beach House Restaurant, Merriman's, Tide Pools, Tortilla Republic, The Dolphin, and many others are literally just a few minutes from the front door.
A lot of our returning guests stay for a month or more. They enjoy the neighborhood and the comforts of a real home while at the same time being in the heart of Poipu and walking distance to world class beaches and resorts.
We love our little blue green hale and we're always looking for a reason to come work on it, so we are continually renovating and/or updating to keep the house in tip top shape. We finished off the car port floor and closed it off to cars and built a new custom made outdoor couch. The trades winds blow through making it a cool spot for cocktail hour and/or barbecuing.
Linens and towels are included. We have an evolving and revolving supply of masks, snorkels, boogie boards, fins, chairs, and other beach toys that are on the honor system.
Within walking distance and directly connected to Poipu Beach is Brennecke Beach, a great place to learn to body board or body surf. We often watch spinner dolphins playing off Brennecke's Beach at sunrise.
The Waiohai Beach and surf break are connected to Poipu Beach just to the west. From The Waiohai, it's just a short walk along the coast to the super soft sands of the Sheraton.
For an adventure, pile in the car and drive to Ke'e Beach on the north side, hike the Na Pali Coast along the Kalalau trail, or shoot a round of golf and have dinner in Hanalei.
It is only a 20 minute drive to the overlook of Waimea Canyon. Mark Twain called it 'The Grand Canyon of the Pacific.'
For a Hawaiian style golf experience, check out 9 holes for 9 bucks at Kooks (Kukkuiolono). For a world-class golf experience, Poipu Bay at the Grand Hyatt is only a 3 minute drive from Hale Akamai.
When the beach is too hot, relax in the big back yard under the cool shade of the huge monkey pod. A grapefruit tree provides a fresh breakfast between Jan and May. The big sweet-tart grapefruits are remarkable.
Play hard in the sun and waves and come back to the outdoor shower, BBQ fresh fish, and take it all in.
Compare our single family home rental to other single family home rentals in Poipu. Hale Akamai stands out as the most reasonably priced, with an ideal location, a bigger back yard, cleaner, more comfortable, and with better maintenance. Why think about renting a condo for more money, with no backyard, and less privacy?

About the owner: The Smarts for an album cover in the Hale Akamai driveway. August 2013.
Why the Owner Chose Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
Kauai is our favorite Hawaiian island and Poipu is our favorite spot on Kauai. We spend our winters in Colorado where it is snowy and cold. Poipu is perfect! Warm and Sunny!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love all the benefits of a real home in a local neighborhood. We love to walk to and from the beach. We love to BBQ fish caught that day and playing games in the back yard. We love the grapefruits on our tree and trading our neighbors for mangoes and avocados. We love the Pacific Ocean, the clean air, and the wonderful feeling we have when we are there.
