About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Hale Nani Mala, in Poipu with its perfect weather and golden beaches, is a tropical paradise located on a quiet cul-de-sac, just minutes from the beach. The fully landscaped wrap around yard is entered through a beautiful hand-crafted gate with leaded glass doors. The lush, colorful tropical plants and numerous palm trees provide a true sense of peace.

The completely private pool, with its dolphin tile accents, is bordered by a grass lawn perfect for lounging in the sun during the day. In the evening you will enjoy quiet, star filled nights listening to the sound of the surf. The wide steps leading down to the pool provide a perfect place to sip your morning coffee and watch the sunrise.

Hale Nani Mala ( House of the Beautiful Garden) is bordered on 3 sides by the Poipu Green Belt with its extensive walking paths. Shipwreck Beach and the Grand Hyatt Resort, with the Anara Spa and Fitness Club and a Starbucks, is just a 2 minute walk away. Just beyond that are hiking paths to the stratified limestone cliffs and the Mahaulepu area with its ancient burial grounds and rocky sea caves for your morning workout.

At over 2200 square feet, with comfortable travertine floors throughout, this home has lots of room to spread out. The fully equipped and well stocked kitchen has a gas cook top and granite counters. There is indoor dining at the breakfast bar or in the adjacent dining room. Just outside the sliding glass doors is alfresco seating on the protected lanai with a convection propane BBQ.

The master bedroom and large ensuite bath both have direct access to the garden and pool. The second bedroom, on the opposite side of the living area, has its own bathroom complete with both indoor and outdoor showers.

There are ample linens, towels and cleaning supplies provided as well as complete laundry facilities.

2 walls of sliding glass doors open up the large computer/office area (with WIFI) to enjoy the cooling breezes and view of the pool. The living room walls also fully open to let the trade winds flow through should you choose to watch the new 64' television in the evenings.

With 3 outdoor seating areas and 5 indoor ceiling fans everyone can find a spot to relax.

The master suite with a king bed has all new Mango wood furniture from Bali with 2 new Italian leather chairs for relaxing. New natural bamboo window coverings filter the tropical sunlight.

The second bedroom has a new king bed and natural bamboo window coverings also.

The walls throughout the house have been newly repainted and there is new artwork collected from around the world to enjoy.

The phone has unlimited long distance call to the US, Canada and Mexico.

We have provided backpack beach chairs, regular beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, coolers, sand toys, inflatables, fins, water shoes and plenty of beach towels for your use. The hot tub is not heated due to the exceptionally high cost of fuel, however the pool is a perfect temperature for your private swimming enjoyment.

You can quickly walk to Shipwreck Beach to enjoy the tide pools, golden beach and waves or watch the surfers and cliff jumpers. Close by, Poipu Beach (voted one of the Worlds Best Beaches) and Brennecke's Beach offer soft sand and gentle waves that are perfect for snorkeling. With 3 bow shaped bays there is a multitude of sea life as well as boogie boarding, kayaking, surfing, picnic areas, playgrounds, and lifeguards. You will often see green turtles paddling near shore and protected monk seals sunning on the beach. Whales and dolphins can be spotted off shore.

Within a 2 mile radius there are many shops, restaurants, bicycle rentals, dive shops and horseback riding as well as zip line, ATV and helicopter tour companies. On the way to Spouting Horn you can visit the National Tropical Botanical Gardens. The famous Waimea Canyon ( Grand Canyon of the Pacific) is just a scenic hour drive away. There are 45 miles of hiking trails to discover and stunning vistas to photograph. Historic Koloa Town is just 2 miles away for your shopping needs and closer still, there are Poipu Shopping Village and Kukuiula Village offering a vast array of boutique shops and restaurants.

Bayview guests have access to all Poipu Kai amenities including 8 tennis courts...a 5 minute walk away where everyone can find someone to play with at their level (for a nominal fee). There is also a gated swimming pool and jacuzzi and extensive walking paths. There are 3 golf courses nearby--the Poipu Bay Golf Course ( home of the Grand Slam), the Kiahuna Golf Course, and the Kukuiolono Public Course with its picnic area and panoramic views.

Why Garden Island Rentals chose Poipu

This location offers the essence of the tropical indoor-outdoor experience . Because of the siting of the house, we can leave the large doors and windows open (most even in rain), letting the gentle trade winds blow through the expansive openness. The house remains remarkably cool without air conditioning. While plantings keep the property totally private, it is situated on the Poipu Kai greenbelt with its lively parade of locals strolling or walking dogs, and vacationers walking to Shipwreck or Brenneckes beaches.

What makes this house unique

Walk every morning and appreciate the variety of paths. In 5 minutes you are on cliffs above the ocean that go for miles; you can choose to walk through elegant hotel grounds and stop for coffee; or go in search of monk seals and giant turtles that have often hauled out on some of the nearby beaches.

Play tennis and use the jacuzzi at the Poipu Kai facilities when we want to socialize, or go to the beach, and then retreat to our own pool for solitude. There are stables that do awesome beach rides a short drive away. We have great restaurants and shops nearby, as well as the Big Save market in Koloa for our grocery needs. There are so many places to explore in the area as well as further away towards Princeville. This island has it all.

Hale Nani Mala, with its open central floor plan, is the perfect house for guests who choose elegance and spaciousness over many small bedroom units in the same area. This peaceful oasis, with its perfect climate, is a sanctuary to relax in after exploring all the beauty that Kauai has to offer.

Beautiful and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We returned again for another wonderful stay. There truly is nothing wanting in this location. It is perfectly situated with access to various beaches, walks, and the Grand Hyatt and yet secluded enough to be peaceful and quiet. The house is beautifully decorated and always is exceptionally well kept. The gardens provide three different sitting areas depending on the time of day and how much sun you want to enjoy. The front entry is terrific for morning coffee and watching the clouds come over the mountains. The patio off the kitchen is the place to eat all your meals ( I doubt we've ever eaten inside!)..and then the pool is the perfect spot for a swim, sun and a cocktail. We've enjoyed many rental properties, a number of them on Kauai and this is easily the nicest and best. Thanks Gary & Sara!

You will not be disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

We took our friends to Kauai for a huge milestone Birthday celebration. The four of us LOVED this property so much. The layout of the bedrooms were perfect for two couples. This property exceeded our expectations in every way. Easy walk to the beach, close to all the amenities that Poipu has to offer and plenty of privacy in this gem! The pool was amazing and we braved the cool water, didn't matter to us! Everything was kept in tip-top shape. Do not hesitate to book this property - but don't tell everyone! It is our secret!!

This place was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our two children (15 and 11) to Kauai and we LOVED this property! It was extremely spacious and we all agreed, even nicer than the online pics. It was so well-kept and clean and the decor was lovely. We left the screened windows open at night and were always comfortable. Like others have said, there wasn't much that wasn't provided at the property. If you are on the fence about this one, don't be. We were not at all disappointed; In fact, we wish we could've stayed longer. Also, the management property was extremely responsive and easy to work with. This made for a GREAT vacation!

Wonderful honeymoon spot!

  • 5 of 5

There's not a lot more we can add to the previous reviews - Hale Nani Mala was a spectacular closing week to our honeymoon. The house was exactly as advertised - even better, I'd say, with every appliance, gadget, amenity, etc. that you would want. Definitely 5*. It was spotlessly clean - even the laundry detergent cap was good as new. The only thing we couldn't find was a laundry drying rack - but I bet it's there somewhere.

The kitchen was fantastic to cook in, the outdoor shower was perfect for washing off after the beach, the private pool was amazing, and the living room was awesome - great ambiance. We spent many nights relaxing, drinking wine and eating home-cooked (and take out!) food in front of the huge TV before going for a late-night dip. It did get pretty hot in the house at night when the doors were shut, but not unbearable and the fans were quite helpful. If you are very affected by the heat, I'd say go in a cooler month (if they exist...I think we were there during a mini heat wave).

In additional to the beautiful home, the nearby attractions were great. We walked to a cheap pub (Kalapaki Joe's) with great wings and happy hour deals, to an expensive restaurant (Tidepools at the Hyatt) and the Hyatt beaches and an amazing hike on the cliffs. And the Wednesday farmers market at the local shops stocked our fridge with well-priced veggies and baked goods.

I really can't comprehend why someone would complain that the pool isn't heated. In fact, we would have preferred it to be cooler! Perhaps we're used to the colder water being from Canada and swimming in lakes in the summer. But we sat in the un-heated/non-working "hot tub" many days during happy hour for literally an hour without getting cold.

The price is somewhat steep if it's just two of you, but incredibly spacious and reasonable if you were two couples or a family. You will not be disappointed choosing Hale Nani Mala!!

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This house was a little slice of heaven for us, perfect for our small family's week-long stay on Kauai. It was nice to be so close to popular beaches, shops and restaurants yet still be able to shut the front gate and be in our own little secluded paradise. Unfortunate comments from some other reviewers about the pool temperature, we found it to be wonderful during our stay in August, and our 8 year old loved the changing pool light colors, very cool. The hot tub was not operable which was the only downside. The home and surrounding common areas were beautifully landscaped, maybe even too much so in that it seemed to require a pretty steady parade of landscapers running lawnmowers, trimmers and blowers every day, but you can't argue with the results as it's all gorgeous. The house is nicely furnished and equipped, we had everything we needed for cooking meals and just relaxing. There have been a few updates since the photos were taken including the addition of a new big screen TV, which normally would not excite me on vacation, except we were house-bound for a couple of days because of a passing hurricane so it came in handy. The stereo with many great CDs came in handy too, nice to relax with some music while cooking and entertaining. Yes it does get very hot in Poipu and even with fans it can be pretty warm at night, but we quickly adjusted and never missed having A/C. The master bedroom was very spacious and comfortable, the guest room and adjacent bath are probably due for some updating but were perfectly functional. We appreciated all the beach "toys" and towels made available to the guests, and found that this house was in a great central location for exploring the island. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful home, outstanding location!

  • 5 of 5

We picked this rental because of its location and having a pool. We weren't let down. The home is outstanding, the backyard and pool are very secluded and we couldn't ask for anything more. We would stay here again. Everything about it was awesome.
