  • 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."

  • Wonderful Stay

    "We stayed for a week this past July. This home is beautiful and well kept. I do wish all of the bedrooms had air-two of them do not and several nights it was uncomfortable for our guests. We also had a problem with the air conditioning unit in the master bedroom blowing a fuse and it took 24 hours to fix. They did give us late check out for the hassle, so it was a fair exchange! Take advantage of the opportunity to book the Poipu Beach Athletic Club. We enjoyed taking the kids there and the little restaurant! We loved the location of the house, the views, the beautiful property, and the proximity to a variety of beaches and shopping!"

  • Very chill accomodation

    "Perfect place for getting together with friends, cooking dinners, and hanging out. We lived on the outdoor deck! It was great to cool off in the pool and to have A/C at night. The shutters kept the place nice and dark and we slept beautifully. The garage was full of fins, reef shoes and other beach gear which we also made great use of. I would stay there again!"

  • Spacieux, près de la plage

    "Nous étions 6 adultes mais même avec 2 ou 3 personnes de plus il y a assez d'espace. Grandes tables dehors et à l'intérieure. La maison est bien équippée et il y a des body boards, du matériel de plage et des vélos à disposition dans le garage. Ceux-ci ne sont pas en excellent état, mais quand même fonctionnels et avec casques, cadenas... Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la proximité de la plage (en fait, 3 ou 4 plages à caractère très différent sont assez près pour y aller à pied ou en vélo, y compris des plages très jolies et sauvages). Les propriétaires habitent juste dérrière, mais ceci ne pose pas de problème; ils sont à la fois chaleureux et discrets."
