Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Hale Momo was featured on the popular TV show "House Hunters" on HGTV in September 2013!

Hale Momo is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom private home located just one block away from world-famous Poipu and Brennecke's beaches. Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac on a quiet street in sunny Poipu, you can walk to the beach in 2 minutes. You can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing environment while being just steps from surfing, body boarding, snorkeling, sunbathing, picnic areas, restaurants and shopping.

The home features a spacious living room, 3 wraparound lanais, a fully-equipped kitchen and a games room (including foosball and ping pong). There are two TVs, free internet WiFi and free unlimited long-distance calling to the US and Canada. One of the 4 bedrooms functions as a second master suite, and can be locked off as a private studio if desired and has its own private entrance (it also connects internally to the rest of house).

Outside you will enjoy the large lovely, private lawn with plenty of space to play and relax. There is a large patio set for eating in the open air, a gas BBQ, 2 large mango trees (take all you want during mango season!), an outdoor shower and a 12-hole mini putt course. The yard is very large and there is lots of room for playing games or having a large group gathering (up to 25-30 people).

We are excited to announce that we have recently made a major improvement to the house (finished September 2017)! We have added a whole new outdoor living area under the house on the ground floor (the house is raised up on pillars so this area is completely protected under a roof). It has its own large dining area, separate lounging area and a hot tub, and in the adjacent yard there is a beautiful new fire pit with seating around it.

There is beach equipment included (chairs, umbrellas, cooler, sporting equipment) as well as many baby items (Pak-n-Play playpen for baby (can be used for sleeping), high chair, booster seat, baby bath, 2 umbrella strollers and a baby gate for the stairs).Towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and dishwasher and laundry soaps are all included.

The house is located approximately 15 miles from Lihue Airport on the sunny south shore of Kauai where the ocean is always crystal clear and the temperature perfect! This is the perfect house for groups of 6-10 people. I suggest you book early as the house runs at a 80-85% occupancy rate.

We offer memberships to the nearby POIPU BEACH ATHLETIC CLUB for guests during their stay. Please note that these memberships are optional and there is a small additional cost if you choose to use the Club. The costs are $100 total for 1 week, and $20 for each additional day beyond 1 week. Price includes you and all of your guests up to 8 persons total. The Athletic Club is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm (closed on Mondays).

The club is newly-renovated and is located 0.5 miles from Hale Momo (10 minute walk/3 minute drive). Features include an 82,000 gallon resort-style swimming pool with waterslide, 1,600 gallon hot tub, sand-bottom children's pool area, fitness machines (treadmills, ellipticals, AMT machines, stationary bikes), weight circuit, free weights, medicine balls, 3 UTSA regulation tennis courts (ball machines, racquets and balls provided), fitness classes (Core, Zumba, Water Aerobics, Yoga (yoga mats provided; note that cost for these classes are $8 per class/per person), and personal training (extra cost required). You will be assisted in in booking fitness classes and personal training, or reserving a tennis court.

Owner's Response: Thanks Molly for your nice words! We are very excited for the completion of our new addition to the house (will be done by the end of September 2017). As you saw during your stay, we are building a whole new living area under the house on the ground floor (the house is raised up on pillars). It will have a dining area, lounging area and hot tub, and in the yard adjacent to this area will be a BBQ and a fire pit with seating. There will also be a second outdoor dining area in the yard itself. The yard is big enough that there will still be lots of room for playing games or having a large group congregate. We are installing a 12-hole mini-putt course along one side of the house as well. The additions are going to be really nice and I am sure future guests will love it! Thanks again! Peter

Excellent location and perfect house for 8, but.......

  • 4 of 5

This was a near perfect house for our group of 8. The only real problem was the lack of air conditioning. I had read that in the reviews and it was a concern, but with 8 people, needing 4 or 5 bedrooms, our choices were limited. We never really recovered from the heat and humidity outside, since the house was so warm. Sleeping was not an issue, as the house did eventually cool down from about midnight-8. We took lots of showers in an effort to cool off!

The house itself was fantastic! The layout and size was perfect for us. We enjoyed using the BBQ and played lots of ping pong in the garage. We took advantage of the extra refrigerator, as we were going through gallons of water everyday trying to stay cool and hydrated. We would've been cramped for fridge space with only one. The master off to the side was perfect for my husband and me; very spacious! We played games at night around the big table, and read books out on the lanais in the morning.

There were ample towels provided which was key to our many trips to the beach and multiple showers. We did a few loads of laundry and appreciated all the supplies left to do so.

We used many of the beach items located below the house. They really need to be gone through and organized between stays, as well as cleaned or thrown away. We took an umbrella to the beach, only to find that it was horribly broken. We used the beach chairs and boogie boards frequently and they were in good shape.

We loved our membership to Poipu Beach Athletic Club, many of us took advantage of the workout facilities and pool.

I took a tennis clinic at a nearby tennis club (2 minute walk), that I happened upon. I wish I had seen it earlier in my stay. Maybe that should be included in the description of the home.

The location to nearby beaches, the shopping village and was excellent.

Beautiful home, beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

This home was awesome and just a few minute walk from wonderful poipu beach. It was plenty large enough to accommodate my parents, adult siblings and children. The house was fully stocked above expectation and had all the beach gear and toys you need for long days at the beach. The only negative is the lack of a.c., so afternoons got pretty warm. Evenings and mornings with the windows open and fans blowing were beautiful, it was never hot at night while trying to sleep. We would absolutely recommend this property again and again. Also, the management company was wonderful. They accomadated all requests, even making sure a crock pot was added to the house after I asked about it. They were always quick yo respond and wanted to make sure our vacation was comfortable and stress free. Thank you Janie and Chantel from Great Vacation Retreats!! We loved our week in Kauai with our family!

Amazing home but......

  • 3 of 5

2 factors made our stay not so great. We didn't have air conditioning and didn't think we would need it at this time of year. For 2017 we were wrong and March felt like August. We had all fans going and windows open. Which leads to the next factor ...... With the windows open we heard the roosters and could not sleep a full night. The home accommodated our family needs with bedrooms and bathrooms and had all the amenities you could want.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am glad the house accommodated your and your family's needs. We apologize that you found the house to be too warm for your group in the evenings. Most of our guests (and us too when we are there) find the temperature cools down nicely in the evenings and with the fans on provides a nice temperature for sleeping. The roosters are present all over the island and can often make a lot of noise, but they are typically not noticeable with the windows closed and fans on during the night. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review!
