About Allan and Lynelle

We purchased this property in 1970 and have enjoyed it until 1981 when we relocated to the Bay Area.

Allan and Lynelle purchased this house in 1970

Why Allan and Lynelle chose Poipu

Kauai is the BEST island hands down. This home is large enough for all our Ohana to be together.

Beautiful Hale

Close to Poipu Beach, Large house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 weeks and it was a great location. Within walking distance to the beach. Located on a dead end street so not much traffic. Having a garage to park the car in was great. All wood floors made it easy to keep clean. The extra room off of the garage was great to put all of our beach towels and bags. They also have several beach chairs and umbrellas available for use.

Great house, but we also had some issues come up

  • 3 of 5

This house was great for us, and we debated amongst ourselves on whether it should have 3 or 4 stars. It was decided that 3 stars was more appropriate, because while the problems we had didn't bother us much they could really bother some other people. Pros and Cons below.

Pros: Local neighborhood (it was quiet, and close to everything in Poipu/Koloa), great back yard (we would lay on blankets and star gaze at night, even saw shooting stars! Hosted a BBQ for our family one night that we're staying elsewhere in Poipu), lots of fans to help keep the air circulating, provided two awesome boogie boards (other large one was broken, and the others were small), a lot of beach chairs, two grills, spacious living area, two car driveway, etc.

Cons: Mice in the house. When we arrived, we found mouse droppings throughout the master bedroom dresser, in a hall closet, and in the hide-a-bed. Property Management came over the following morning to vacuum them up and lay sticky traps, and told us to contact them if we caught anything. We didn't end up using the hide a bed, because it didn't feel sanitary to just have it vacuumed. But the couch in the living room was perfectly comfy! A mouse did end up getting caught on a sticky trap. When we contacted property management to remove it, he asked if we could just throw it in the trash. Keep in mind, the mouse was still alive. And why ask us to contact him, if he was just going to have us handle it? I ended up taking it to the furthest back part of the yard and was able to free it using coconut oil.

There were no paper towels (property management brought some on Thursday, but we had checked in Monday so we had bought our own by then), no pepper in kitchen (bought that too), tv remote's batteries were dead, one of the garage openers didn't work, and no wifi password provided. We got the password eventually, only to then have the wifi stop working. Tuesday-Thursday we didn't have wifi, they came to give us a new modem/router Thursday evening. But failed to leave the new password for us, we had left to a wedding while he was installing it. We were able to get the new password Friday morning. Volleyball/badminton net is broken, badminton rackets broken.

Honestly, we would stay here again. We loved the house and loved Kauai. But we also wanted to be honest about the issues that came up during our stay.

Owner's Response: Hale Ohana prides itself on being an affordable home away from home for our guests. We also try to provide a comfortable place with the main amenities of home so our guests can come for a budget friendly vacation. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood and near an old sugar cane field in beautiful tropical Kauai. Unfortunately, with that comes some critters. We appreciated your patience and willingness to work through the challenges that came up during your stay. I'm so glad our housekeeper lives a couple doors away so that he could address your concerns very promptly. We have made adjustments to our staffing expectations and have increased our pest control and have had no further issues. We hope that you will join us again for a future visit as Hale Ohana will always be a comfortable lodging location away from home.

The house was nice. Nice central location for sightseeing

  • 4 of 5

The owner was easy to get ahold of and quick to respond to calls and texts. Friendly and helpful. Lots of water and beach items. 2 large bedrooms were nice. Small bedroom stayed hot. Lots of fans to help with the cooling. Nice backyard with lots of room for kids to play. Could have been more welcoming....a basket of local fruit would have been nice. Paper products were thin so we seemed to use a lot. Would have been nice to have more kid dishes and glasses but there were a few. Very few spices but the local spices were awesome. The washer and dryer were appreciated but more laundry soap would have been nice. Only enough for 2 loads. Overall a great experience and a nice place to stay

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying in the Hale Ohana for one month. It was just as great as the first time. It truly felt like we were returning "home" every time we came back from the beach. The house had plenty of space for our family of 7. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook all of most of our meals (we went out only a few times). The patio in the back yard is a great addition and was a wonderful place to escape during the hottest hours. The evening breeze and fans in every room were just right to cool things down for night time without needing A/C. The beach is an easy 10 minute walk. Having kids and a bunch of gear we drove, but others in our party enjoyed the nice walk to the beach (2 times each day) through a quiet neighborhood. We did not at all miss not being right on the beach. Lynelle is great to work with. She is quick to resolve any issues that may arise. We are looking forward to returning for our 3rd time next year!

Perfect family home in beautiful Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and one toddler thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale Ohana. There was more than enough space for us all and having all the beach supplies we needed on hand (chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling gear, sand toys, and a cooler) was a lifesaver! The house is on a quiet street and is within walking distance of the beach. We loved it so much we were already planning our trip back in 2018. Thank you for everything!
