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.

FREE FITNESS CLUB AMENITIES INCLUDE: cardio workout room, weight lifting equipment, exercise room (and classes), poolside table and chaise lounges, restaurant and bar and pool/hot spa with waterslide!

Lovely traditional Hawaiian-style home

  • 5 of 5

While many people associate the traditional plantation house with Hawaiian style, to me it means board and batten siding, wood floors, louvered windows, ceiling fans, and deep lanais. This house has all that and more. The furniture and artwork reinforce the theme and the roof deck adds another dimension. Very romantic! In a more practical vein, the kitchen is fully equipped, the beds are comfortable, and the living spaces are well-laid out. The house is just as pictured and described. Plus, the Cherrys are excellent hosts. I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in Poipu.

Made to relax with comfort

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering this property I can assure you that you will be pleased with your choice. I highly recommend this rental. When we arrived we thought the photos had not done it justice - it was even better in person. It is open, airy and the layout is wonderful. We always had a breeze. There were six of us and there was plenty of space and enough to take alone time too. The patios are divine (we all spent most of our time there) and you can see the water. The jacuzzi was such a nice, and utilized, bonus. The house comes stocked with all the basics and everything was in good working condition (rare to have both). We used the kitchen often and always had what we needed to cook. This rental gives you the privacy of a home with access to everything you want to do, it is an ideal location. You can walk to Ship Wreck beach in 15 to 20 minutes and to Poipu Beach in 10. We have stayed in the area two other times and this is our favorite place we have rented. We also appreciated being able to use the athletic club. I will return to this property.

Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this place. Don't let the modest exterior fool you, this place is gorgeous. The grounds are so beautiful... the smell of plumeria just hangs in the air, with the constant, gentle ocean breeze. The house is beautifully furnished with so much charm and incredible artwork. The layout is open and spacious, with indoor and outdoor living, even with our large family we never felt cramped. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to work in. The hottub and rooftop deck were very special ammenities. We were pleasantly surprised at all of the beach toys and equipment. It is a short walk to Poipu Beach, where we saw turtles and Monk Seals. We got the add-on package for the Poipu Beach Athletic Club. It was a 15 minute walk or short drive, and worth every penny. The kids LOVED it and wanted to go every day.

Our daughter was married on Shipwreck Beach, and the wedding could not have been more perfect. The wedding party was too large for everyone to stay at the house, but other relatives found a condo literally right across the street at the Sunset Kahili Condos which worked out to be the perfect option.

This was our first visit to this island. We adored Poipu and will certainly be back. We would most definitely stay here again.

Thanks so much to our hosts for a wonderful stay.

HINT: Obey the speed limit. Most roads are 25mph. You rarely see police, but one of our group got a ticket. There's no need to be in a rush when you're on island time.

Beautiful and spacious Polynesian vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Elegant, quiet, comfortable and well appointed—- relaxed Hawaiian living at its finest!

The expansive indoor spaces lead seamlessly to the supremely inviting outdoor lanai completeing two sides of this amazing home and leading upstairs to the rooftop sun deck repleat with views of the surf and beaches. Hawaiian tradewinds waft warmly through generous Jaloise windows on all sides allow natural light throughout the day; the outdoors and indoors meld into one nearly seamless environment as one relaxes on chaise lounges or cooks on the provided propane gas grill. The outdoor spa tucked under palms in the corner of the rear garden is available night and day and there’s even an outdoor shower to leave beach sand outside by the covered parking. There are comfortable chairs and lounges inside and out, four televisions and ceiling fans in every room; we look forward to returning!

Lovely vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this home; four adults and two teenagers. So spacious, and tastefully decorated without a lot of clutter which made for a very peaceful space. 7 mature plumeria trees on the grounds were a lovely bonus, as we were able to collect fresh fallen flowers daily to make fragrant and beautiful tropical trays which added to the decor. Plenty of room for us all to be together, or take a solitary break from one another with a good book. Plenty of towels. Bedding was just right, and lovely quality; note that the king bed is *very* high off the floor. Bonus for our teenagers was finding amazing giant snails and beautiful frogs on the lawn after need to notice them if you did not go in search of them with a flashlight several hours after sunset, but amazing to be able to see them if so inclined. Plenty of room to park two cars. Lovely walk to the beach. NOTE: The folks at the shop under Brenneke's are happy to help with booking boat tours and the like. Also, we had a lot of extra time on our last day there (10am checkout, and 10pm flight) so found Duke's at Kalapaki beach in Lihue...the best beach for snorkeling/boogie boarding if the surf is too rough everywhere else.
