  • The perfect house for our Kauai vacation!

    "I did a lot of research before choosing Akala Pua for our Kauai vacation. On paper, the price was good, and the house seemed to meet all our needs. When we arrived, I was pleased that everything was as advertised. As you walk in the front door, the ground floor has 3BD/3BA. This worked well for us, as each of our two kids could have their own bedroom and bathroom. The beds were comfortable. There is also a laundry room with late model washer/dryer. (This really came in handy as our clean clothes started to dwindle near the end of our stay.) Upstairs is a large room with living area, dining area (with large dining table), and a kitchen. The kitchen was well-supplied: the only thing we really needed to buy to cook meals was the food. This room has high vaulted ceilings that added to the sense of space. There were numerous windows all over the house that could let the trade winds in, and ceiling fans in every room. This allowed us to stay relatively comfortable during hot humid days and nights. The location was ideal. A five minute walk west on Lawai road takes you to Lawai Beach, which is a bit rocky, but has good snorkeling (you can rent snorkel equipment right there at Boss Frogs). A five minute walk west takes you to the Kukui’ula Shopping Center with some good restaurants and shops (and generally has several musicians in outside in the evenings to). For shopping, the Kukui’ula Market is about a block away (a lot less expensive than the Living Food Market in the shopping center!). A five minute drive takes you to the Poipu Beach Park, with great swimming/wading for the family, as well as some really good snorkeling. Restaurants in the resort/tourist areas are generally good but expensive. I recommend also trying out diners and cafes frequented by locals as the food is excellent, copious, and reasonable. You sometimes have to search those out. Here are a couple of suggestions: Tip Top Café in Lihue and the Waipouli Deli & Restaurant in Kapaa. We called the management company (Garden Island Rentals) once with a question. They were responsive and friendly. We had a great time in the perfect house for a family."

  • A Great Family Vacation at the best location in Poipu.

    "We had a great family vacation celebrating my father's birthday. There was 10 in our party including grandparents, spouses and grandchildren and we all fit comfortably in the beach house. The kitchen is large which made cooking for a large group a breeze. We ate out one night at the Shops at Kukui'ula (a 3 min drive) but there are many other restaurants within a 5 min drive. The best feature of the house is its location. It's directly across the street from Poipu Beach Park, which has great snorkeling and is perfect for the little ones as it is relatively calm. One tip, bring some bread (in a zip lock bag) and your waterproof camera when you go snorkeling. You can thank me later. The house also has a nice outdoor shower so it's easy to rinse off the kids after a day at the beach. Steve, the owner, was accommodating and very easy to work with."
