  • 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."

  • Stay at this condo! (Just not when I go back! :) )

    "We LOVED our stay at this property in Poipu. The condo is well-kept and well-appointed: all the things you need to make your stay comfortable are here! If you're set to go to south side of Kauai, this is the place. It's quiet, peaceful, and comfy. The location is amazing. It's walkable to the beach and a longer walk or short drive to restaurants and shopping. We saw at least 20 turtles and 3 Hawaiian monk seals right there on our walks. We loved Anuenue Cafe for breakfast just down the street. There's a Longs Drugstore nearby, too. And Lappert's ice cream, if that's important to you. We were active on the island (walking, hiking, kayaking, surfing) and this was the perfect place for us. We were able to sleep well, enjoy coffee on the lanai, pack our lunches, and get going for the day. When we got back at the end of the day, it was like coming home and relaxing. I highly recommend this property- we'll be back!"

  • Lovely Home Away From Home

    "My son and I got away for just a few days and were able to stay in this 2-story condo. It was beautiful, comfortable and perfect for a family or group of friends. The kitchen has been nicely remodeled. I'd stay again."

  • Four sisters vacation

    "I was on Kauai for 8 nights. I was a vacation for four sisters. I and one other sister stayed in this unit. It had was beautiful. Extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. It was on the ground floor and had a nice view with a great patio. Across from the pool. Easy walk to the beach and the Hyatt. Well equipped. My sister has health issues and it was so easy to acess. I could not have been happier. Hope to come back many times."
