Kapakai - Hawaiian for "coastline" - you will understand this home's given name when you take in the stunning view of the Poipu coastline from the upper deck. This hale (house) is located on top of a volcano (extinct, of course) in a quiet local neighborhood. Grab a towel & walk down the hill to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke Beach.

Excite your tast buds with dragon heart fruit, rambutan, lychee, star fruit and more. The galley kitchen with its practical and handsome finishes is a great platform for your culinary adventure. Many decorative plates, bowls and glassware provide for delightful table settings.

Step into the Spirit of Old Hawaii surrounded by colorful local artwork and distinctive island furnishings. The living areas unfold with a comfortable breezy living room ... to the dining space with a massive round table ... to an intimate conversation seating area opening onto the expansive L-shaped covered lanai ... then one more adjacent family room space with ocean glimpses revealed through verdant foliage.

Breathe in the fragrant plumeria and bright bougainvillea bordering the grassy yard which encircles this home. Plenty of room for youngsters to run & play - croquet, anyone?

The master suite on the ocean side has a queen bed, TV/DVD viewing. The master bath shower, floors and vanity are tiled in decorative travertine stone tiles.

The guest bedroom wing of the home features a king poster bed in one room and twin beds in the other, TVs in both. These rooms share a "Jack and Jill" bath with fun fish & cobalt blue tiles at the shower and vanity.

As the sun sets, the western view is a delight to enjoy the last rays from a memorable day in the comfortable lounge chair seating, or at the nearby table over pupus (hors d'oevres) and beverages.

Poipu Beach Park, just minutes away with 2 free parking lots, offers a large grassy area dotted with swaying coco palms. There are picnic tables, showers, restrooms, even a convenience store, restaurant and beach rentals across the street.There is a 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 snorkel 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.

FITNESS CLUB OPTION - reasonably priced family fun activity center

For a reasonable fee, you will have the privilege of using a nearby family fitness facility. The Poipu Beach Athletic Club (PBA Club), less than a mile away, is a wonderful facility for family & friends to be active, have fun and have a meal, too.

Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Loved Kauai!!! The house was spacious for two families with a big backyard for the kids to play in. The lanais were large enough for family dinners and the upstairs deck was a PLUS with the spectacular views.

Even with all the fans going, the house was quite hot. Funky bathrooms need fans; they were like saunas. Seniors need to be careful getting in and out of the showers.

Overall, the house worked and the property managers were very accommodating.

Owner's Response: We are glad you loved Kauai and that this 3 bedroom spacious home fit your family needs. The deck view is great! Usually with opening the many windows, the 3 large sliders and the ceiling and stand-up fans, our almost constant trade winds cool the house down and make it quite pleasant. This home was built in the 60s and remodeled with a casual island retro feel. To update the smaller 1960 bathrooms, the owner chose natural stone tile in the master and a fun fish/blue & white motif in the other bathroom. We do let people know that both tiled showers are "sunken" and there is a grab bar to hold for stepping down into the shower. We appreciate the idea of a fan in each bathroom and will pursue that improvement. Adding fans to the ample window ventilation should help. Aloha and thank you for the visit!

Can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is even better in person as the pictures do not it justice for how amazing it really is. I visited Kauai with my family, and it slept eight of us comfortably. Oversized furniture in common area does not disappoint as it was very comfortable after spending the day relaxing at the beach or hiking within the interior. This spacious property is surrounded by the smell of plumeria. Ocean view from top deck is incredible, especially at sunrise and sunset. It is about a five minute walk to two spectacular beaches. The first beach is great for boogie boarding which the property does provide . The second beach, Poipu Beach Park, offers great snorkeling and we saw green sea turtles and monk seals on the beach every time we visited. The ocean is very calm at this beach. Jim and Juliana are very easy to work with and took care of all our needs. When I return to Kauai, I will definitely be staying here again!!!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this home do not do it justice. The home is beautiful. It is comfortable, open, and airy. The home is truly what one would expect in Kauai. The lanai is wonderful and the roof top deck is unbelievable. Seeing the stars from the roof top deck will be a wonderful memory of our trip.

Charming spot near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our family and had a great open floor plan. It was a short walk to the beach every day and we had great views from the balcony. The neighborhood was very nice and there were quite a few places to walk and get exercise nearby whether it was through the neighborhood or on a nearby hiking trail. There are also great restaurants close by and each of the beaches had something for the more adventurous to the younger swimmers. The location was also convenient to several other quite the towns and attractions. The yard was also a nice size if you have young kids who want to play outside in a safe area. We would definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous View and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed sitting outside on the porch to eat dinner almost every night. The porch had a nice view of the water, but the rooftop view of the beach was the best! There was even a nice size yard for the kids to play in with gorgeous landscape. The only complaint was blind corners while pulling out of the drive way. Otherwise, it was a great house!

Kauai = Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time in Kauai, but our 4th Hawaiian island. Too bad we didn't come here first, because Kauai is by far our favorite! This fantastic home made it even better, had everything we needed and more. Roof top deck and private hot tub were icing on the cake! Plus, the beautiful Poipu beach is only 5 min walk away! It's true, it's the perfect beach!
