About The Parrish Collection

Kauai has been a home away from home for us. Our family has enjoyed living, working and experiencing this wonderful island since 1988.

The Parrish Collection purchased this house in 2008

Why The Parrish Collection chose Poipu

My father and I are Architects, together we have created this beautiful home in this setting that just about has it all.

What makes this house unique

The beauty of the surrounding area is seen throughout this home. Sitting in the lanai, observing the changes in the ocean in the early morning calm with the beginning of day light or watching the excitement of the waves giving the body surfers and boogie boarders a ride and at the end of the day observing the sky change color as the sun dissappears.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I'm just getting around to reviewing the fantastic five-night stay my wife, three relatives and myself had at Hale Halia last May. But better late than never for this great, well-managed property. It's actually even better than it looks in the photo, in that you have a nice view of the ocean from both an enclosed sitting room, the living room and an upstairs bedroom. And it's even roomier than it looks in some other photos I've seen. The company we rented it through, Poipu 365, was a pleasure to deal with. (Stay away from Indiana-based TBD Rentals, by the way, which tried to rent and overcharge us for the house, using another name for it.) In addition to its other features, the house is well-supplied with whatever you'd need in terms of plates, glasses, outdoor grill and other supplies, as well as having a very nice hot tub. It's location is great as well, as, there's an open green area on one side, a few nice beaches are right across the road and Brenecke's (sp?) bar restaurant is an easy five-minute walk away. Plus, if you go out to the street and turn to your left, there is a nice residential area to walk through, followed by some beautiful seaside trails just past the Hyatt Hotel (itself perhaps a 15 minute walk away). The only slightly negative thing to be aware of is that, contrary to the impression left in the photo, the house is not on the beach but across a small road. But the road is neither busy nor noisy. I'd go on and on, but there is a word limit. So I'll simply say that we had a great time in this very pleasant, well-ventilated (no AC needed), spacious house.

Aloha from the sunny south shores of Kauai!

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 29, 2009

This home was uniquely architected by the owner’s father to take full advantage of the incredible ocean views. You can hear the waves crashing upon the shore from every room throughout the home. The open living room features lots of windows and a large seating capacity to comfortably admire the awe-inspiring surroundings. Whether you’re traveling as a bear family of four or with a larger group, this home features four bedrooms to accommodate eight guests. The three full bathrooms gave everyone in our group privacy they needed in the mornings while getting ready. If you’re traveling with a gourmet chef bear or simply someone who has a passion for cooking, the fully-equipped kitchen has everything you’d need. The large table and benches made of “monkeypod” wood in the spacious dining area were perfect for entertaining during the evenings we opted to dine in. Plus, the outdoor gas grill was great for cooking up a Hawaiian-style BBQ. The beauty of this home is evident inside and out. Both the lanai and luxurious hot tub on the deck overlook the blue Pacific Ocean. After an active day of sightseeing, this bear relaxed in the hot tub which had a soothing underwater light show with changing colors. The beautiful landscaped yard lush with tropical flowers featured a refreshing outdoor shower. It was perfect after a long soak in the hot tub or a swim in the ocean. Did I mention this home is located just a stone’s throw away from the beach? While playing at the beach, VRBO’s bear friends saw sea turtles and dolphins! The home is also in close proximity to fine and casual dining, golf, shopping, snorkeling, etc. Just a block away from the home we discovered “Brenecke’s”, one of our favorite restaurants on the island! Kauai, the “garden island” is not as touristy as some of the other Hawaiian Islands yet there are so many attractions to see! We enjoyed a train ride around the sugar cane plantation, a bird-eye’s view of the island by helicopter, a round of golf at the Kiahuna Golf Course and an evening luau. The VRBO bear and his friends loved their stay at Hale Hali'a and hope to make our Hawaii vacation a tradition for years to come! Aloha and Mahalo, The VRBO Bear

Great location. With issues.

  • 2 of 5

We rented this property in February 2015 and had a great time with our family. The location is excellent. But the house was on the market for sale, and the Owners weren't "ready for company" when we got there. After a very long flight from SFO with two children under 3, we arrived to find the house hadn't even been cleaned yet. The gas grill didn't work. It was so old and rusted out that someone had jerry-rigged an element with aluminum foil. There weren't many lamps by the beds or in the living room. The kitchen was missing some key pieces of cooking equipment - like measuring cups and spoons. The Owner spent a lot of time during our week there, working on a big, ugly mound in the back of the lot where cars park, on what appeared to be a malfunctioning septic system. And 4 months after our stay, I discovered that we just now received our deposit back!

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house, we had two families staying here and it was plenty big enough. The kids found that the beach just out front was the best boogie boarding, and turtles feeding off to the left of the house all day. Humpbacks could be seen sitting in our chairs from the screened porch.

The screened porch was awesome!!! We didn't even sit in the living room, this was a great spot to relax and enjoy the view.

The house was well stocked with tons of towels and all things you would need on vacation, cooking or other wise.

The house could use some updating, but with the view and location you forget about that instantly!!

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house was home to a group of 7, ranging in age from 16 to 86. All loved it! The location cannot be beat. There are four bedrooms for privacy when you've had too much togetherness. The common areas are large so even if you are all together, you won't feel like you're crowded into a small space. The screened lanai was a wonderful spot from which the oldest member of our party could enjoy the views of the beach.

I would not hesitate to recommend this home or to book here again. My only suggestion is to have some kind of a notebook with instructions on how to use, for example, the outside shower and the TV, and also to let guests know what needs to be done before vacating the house (strip beds, run dishwasher, take out trash, that kind of thing). We weren't sure what to do so we just straightened up and hoped for the best. If we had any issues at all, they were promptly addressed by the owner who lives just up the road and is incredibly friendly and helpful. Oh, and a better internet connection would be nice.

This home is perfect for a large group!

Truly wonderful! Very clean, spacious family/living room connects to lanai looking over the beach and ocean. We saw turtles and dolphins almost every day. 4 bedrooms and a great kitchen with oversized fridge and 2 sinks. Literally 30 steps to the beach. Great restaurant/bar 2 blocks away. Markets are a 5 min drive. We had a fantastic stay. Highly recommend.

Beautiful house - beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a four generation vacation and the house met all of our needs. It's big enough that everyone has their own space, but still intimate enough to hang out, cook, visit and enjoy the beautiful views together. It was everything it was advertised as..and more. The owner lives close by and was on hand when we had a couple of questions. Had a great visit....would highly recommend this house.
