Ahuimanu, which in Hawaiian means "gathering of the birds", is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, insulated from its neighbors by ironwoods and an expansive front yard. It sits atop a crater so there are no neighbors behind this secluded retreat. This home is ideal for a couple seeking solitude and seclusion or for two couples in search of a place to unwind, relax and enjoy some time together. The floor plan with its expansive great room and sitting areas enables everyone to interact but not feel confined. And if you do need a little solitude the study is a quiet nook where you can relax with a book or you may seek the peace of the meditation patio among fragrant flora soothed by the distant sounds of the ocean breakers. The outdoor Lanai provides additional covered seating or you may choose to go poolside and let the world drift by on the comfortable chaise lounges.
The herb garden will inspire the chef in your group to delight you with their culinary talents. Enjoy dining inside at a contemporary dining table with seating for six or in a more intimate setting on your outside Lanai.
The dual master suites with spa inspired bathrooms feature Asian styled king sized beds. Each suite is air-conditioned and equipped with ceiling fans.
After a dip in the saline pool settle into the spa and gaze upon the bright stars in the tropical heavens. A relaxing rinse in the oversized outdoor shower is the perfect way to end your day before retiring for the evening and what is sure to be a restful night's slumber.
Ahuimanu is conveniently located between the beach at the Grand Hyatt and Poipu Beach. A ten-minute walk will find you at either location.

The house is in a very quiet neighbourhood. It has a great front lawn and even better back yard . All is very private . Pool is every bit as nice as you see in the pictures . We liked the location.
House itself is very comfortable . Kitchen is fully function kitchen, nice areas to eat . And lovely sitting areas as well. The view is towards the shipwreck beach . We felt really comfortable in this house . Bedrooms and bathrooms are outstanding . Lovely beds !!! Big washing and drying machines .
We went to all the beaches nearby and to the beaches to the west of here . They all were really nice.
I am thinking of coming to Kauai again and I am keeping this house on my list to get again. It has been really good stay.
What a fantastic 9 nights we spent here. The house is spacious and relaxing. The kitchen was well stocked as were the bathrooms. We loved the outdoor shower as well. The grounds, like the house, are perfectly maintained. The pool area is particularly attractive as are the sunrise views off the front of the house. Allison is a phenomenal hostess and I hope we can return often.
We did a lot of research before we decided on Alison's home to stay at for our first family vacation to Hawaii/Kauai. In the planning stages of our trip, she was very responsive in answering all of our questions about the island, things to do, etc., and even sent us a great book on the island that was very helpful. She gave us great advice on activities and things to do while we were there, and her home is just beautiful. You can see/hear the ocean from the front of the home and the back is a private, lush retreat with a beautiful pool and whirlpool. It was so serene, peaceful, and a wonderful place to spend the evenings after a fun day exploring beaches and all that the beautiful island of Kauai has to offer. The rooms are a great size, bathrooms were very comfortable and even had very nice shampoo/shower gel/lotions, the outdoor shower is wonderful for showering off after a day at the beach, the kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need, and overall the accommodations were top notch and very clean. We would highly recommend this home for your vacation and can't wait to return. Mahalo, Alison, for everything you did to make our trip to Kauai one that we will remember fondly forever!

We just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay and we can't wait to return. We knew the house was beautiful from the pictures on the website, though they cannot capture the vibe of this home. It was the most relaxing, peaceful trip we've had in Kauai, and we have stayed at many other amazing properties. The fabulous view of the ocean, Shipwreck beach, and whales was an unexpected treat. We saw whales jumping within 5 minutes of arriving. The backyard is so beautiful and peaceful. And just like the other reviews state, the home itself is beautifully decorated and had everything you could want or need. Don't wait a few days to try out the outdoor shower like we did. Once we tried it, we didn't use the indoor showers again...it's amazing. Alison is a wonderful host! We will definitely be back.
We have been to Kauai on several occasions, always looking for the right balance between solitude, weather and access to beautiful beaches. Look no further this is it! The property is ideally located within walking distance of Shipwreck Beach and Poipu Beach and local restaurants both independent and also at the Hyatt Resort. You will find a thoughtfully and professionally decorated home with comfortable yet elegant furnishings. We enjoy cooking very much and the home comes with a very well furnished kitchen, in addition to the beach supplies and the quiet serenity of a very private lanai and pool with spa. The outdoor shower off the master if a great touch to enjoying your time outdoors and the grounds are impeccably maintained. The house sits on a large elevated lot with long white water views of the ocean. We sought out sunsets and sunrises alike at Shipwreck Beach a five minute walk along the ocean. Several restaurants are also nearby and an easy walk from the home. Our host Alison, could not have been more gracious or attentive to our needs. We have already booked the home for next years visit as this likely will become our home away from from on Kauai for many years to come. Mahalo Alison!
We stayed for 5 days and had a great time. The home, pool and outdoor shower were amazing. The back yard is completely private with beautiful landscaping. Easy walk to the shore line and resorts for walking along the beach and eating out. The owner was fantastic, always available and provided great recommendations for activities and dining. It felt like home.
