About the Property
Spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in Poipu Kai Resort, a few steps from beaches
Mele Hale (Home of Song) is beautifully and uniquely decorated with style, comfort and relaxation in mind. It is spacious enough to enjoy a gathering of friends and family (up to 7 people), yet cozy and private enough for a couple who are looking for a luxurious and quiet vacation retreat. Enjoy the tropical breeze flowing throughout the house. Vaulted ceilings with fans, and numerous windows, create a fresh, airy vacation residence that invites indoor-outdoor living.
After exploring the many Kauai farmer’s markets, enjoy cooking for your loved ones in the fully equipped and well stocked kitchen. Or take it outdoors and cook in your own private, tropical backyard; equipped with a large gas grill and outdoor seating for 8. The backyard is truly an oasis. Kick back in the chaise lounge chairs at night, and thanks to the near absence of city lights, marvel at the glorious, Hawaiian night skies.
What really makes this home special is stepping out of your backyard and having access to the Poipu Kai green belt.
- You can stroll east to the Grand Hyatt, Anara Spa, Shipwreck Beach and the Maha'ulepa Heratige Trail. A perfect area to stroll and hike. It also offers world class surfing.
- Walking west brings you to the Poipu Kai resort pool, hot tub, and tennis courts (tennis courts available for a nominal fee).
- Brennecke’s Beach, and Poipu Beach Park, are another 5 minute walk past the pool. (If you don’t feel like walking, load up the car with all of our beach toys, chairs and towels; there is ample free parking next to these beaches). Poipu Beach Park offers some of the safest swimming in Hawaii with a life guard on duty seven days a week. Brenneke’s Beach is known for it’s easy to catch body boarding and body surfing waves. It is a favorite for locals and visitors alike. There is a protected area for swimmers and snorkeling with surf breaks off shore for the experienced surfer.
Our home is in an unbeatable location suited for exploring all that the sunny south shore has to offer! We hope that you enjoy your vacation on the Garden Isle!
For you convenience and security, we accept payment by Credit Card, PayPal, and back transfers (ETF or Wire Transfer).

Our home is located within the Poipu Kai Resort area. We are in a single family home neighborhood, with the property abutting the convenient Poipu Kai public walkway which connect Poipu Beach and Shipwreck Beaches. It takes 7-10 minutes to walk to either of these beaches, with Shipwreck Beach adjacent to the Grand Hyatt Kauai.
Year Purchased: 2014
About: The home is owned by husband and wife, Chris and Janelle, who live primarily in the State of Washington. We have visited Hawaii many times with our kids and relatives and decided in 2014 to also become part-time residents (and maybe full-time someday). We are very active and outdoors oriented, and have had many adventures in Kauai and the other islands with our kids. We are very tuned in to how to be active and get the most out of Kauai, but also how to find the personal and meditative side of Kauai. Our goal is for all of our guests to create lifelong memories during their stay at our home, and have a very smooth and problem-free stay.
Why Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
Our very first visit to Hawaii was to Kauai and the Poipu Kai area back in 1992. We walked our 1-year old son in his stroller along the Poipu Kai public walkway to go back and forth to the beach, and fell in love with Kauai on that trip. Now that the kids grown up, we couldn't help but return to our Kauai beginnings and acquire our home, which we had strolled past countless times during the our prior visits.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The quiet and seclusion of a private home in a single family neighborhood, but with the amenities of the Poipu Kai Resort (pools, tennis), and just a few steps from two beautiful beaches. Oh, and of course, we should mention that Poipu is sunny and dry, so it's the place to go for a weather bulletproof vacation year-round.
