Description of the Poipu vacation home rental
Aikane Kauai is one of the closest homes to Poipu Beach and is central to Kauai and ideal for families, couples and small groups. The home has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths and sleeps from 2 to 7. It is fully equipped with snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs, free high speed internet access (Wi-fi) and lots more. It is also one of the few homes with air conditioned bedrooms (wall mounted a/c). Aikane is Hawaiian for "friendly" which best describes this delightful beach house.

Come see for yourself why Aikane Kauai was listed as Editor's Pick in the Kauai Lonely Planet Guidebook.

The house is one of the closest to Poipu Beach Park with its protected lagoon, wide open grassy areas and playground equipment over a spongy ground surface. Poipu is famous for its beauty, sandy bottom lagoon, sunsets, warm people, safety, climate, creature comforts, and other area activities. The shallow sandy lagoon is excellent for the smallest babies. Consider also the superb snorkeling in the adjacent bay, and for the more advanced, body surfing and boogie boarding at Brennecke's Beach and board surfing on the outer reefs.

Families are welcome at Aikane Kauai. We are mindful of the creativity and natural inquisitiveness of children so parents can have a relaxing time. The house is equipped with a baby gate for the stairs, a high chair, day crib, board games and videos. Best of all there is no need to pile into a car, drive, look for parking, etc. Just put on a swim suit and walk around the corner to the beach.

Travel Light. No need to rent, buy or lug gear. The house comes equipped with about everything you might want for the beach including masks, snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, cooler and more.


Occupancy: 7 guests max. The youngest to oldest and everyone in between are counted as guests.

Area Information
Enjoy the convenience of staying so close to several great sandy beaches. No need to drive, just walk out the front door past 2 houses to the ocean then along the coast past 3 more homes to the first of a string of beaches. Brennecke's Beach and Poipu Beach are the closest.

Our home provides a nice balance of convenience without being in an overcrowded area or too remote. It is among the handful of homes by the beach. The hotels in the area are about a half mile away. There are very nice coastal hikes in the immediate area and spectacular secluded beaches a mile or so east. Very nice to walk from the house to a series of beaches. There are also couple of restaurants within easy walking distance. The larger grocery stores and farmer's market are 1 to 3 miles away.

Come stay on the sunny side of Kauai!

Aikane Kauai

February 14, 2013

We loved staying at the house in Poipu. It was very comfortable and lived up to the website photos. Chris and Teresa are wonderful hosts and we will come back to stay there again. Also we will recommend this house to family and friends who want to come to the "garden island of Kauai". This house was perfect for our family of 6 adults and two children. We were pleasantly surprised to find it completely furnished with everything that you could possibly need; including a coffee grinder to grind beans fresh every morning. Chris and Teresa are very thoughtful in furnishing their home with everything that you need for your stay. They even provide cd's of Hawaiian music for your listening pleasure! We really enjoyed sitting on the upper level lanai both morning and evening to watch the ocean just a hundred yards away (approximately) or walking down to the end of the street to watch the sunset. Fabulous view! Great location to Poipu Beach, where we spent a lot of time. It is a perfect beach for small children and also for water lovers of all ages. We were very happy to come to Kauai and recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a great vacation destination!

Fabulous home away from home

January 3, 2011

This trip was our 3rd time to Kauai and our family loved staying at Aikane Kauai. We quickly felt at home. The location was great - quick walk to Brennecke, Baby and Poipu Beach Park beaches , close enough to hear and see the surf but away from the more traveled Hoone Rd. You can travel light as the house provided all the beach gear we needed to spend a relaxing and fun day at the beach. The house was well appointed with a wonderfully equipped kitchen. It was easy to make a great meal after a day at the beach or seeing the sights. The house is also close to a nice selection of dining-out options. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Perfect Kauai Vacation on the Beach

October 8, 2009

We had one of the best vacations this past Sept,2009, in a perfect setting on Poipu Beach in Kauai. We rented a ocean view home that was everthing we could ask for. All you had to do was open a drawer and you had it. We had all the kitchen spices, towels,soaps, shampoos, hair dryer, beach chairs, masks/snorkles,boogie boards etc,etc. My family including our 22 month old grand daughter was in love with this home. She had her own high chair, a security gate and the freedom to safely run about the house. Thank you for providing us with a "5" star family vacation. Diane DeNisi & family, Irvine, Ca

January Retreat

January 30, 2008

We arrived to find the comfortable home lit up and welcoming. All of the amenities were provided for, and nothing was left out. A large plus was the abundance of beach toys and chairs for daily use. The house was spacious and clean, and we enjoyed the downstairs "apartment" as a retreat from the rest of the home. We have visited Kauai in the past, and would highly recommend this property for a large group or family looking for a great place to spread out and enjoy Poipu Beach. This is an excellent location, an easy walk to the beach, and to the Koloa Heritage trail. Be sure to explore the are to the east on foot, as there are hidden treasures to be found. Mahalo.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Kevin and Alison, Colorado: We had a terrific time and the house was the perfect arrangement for us. We really appreciated your attention to detail - you made us feel really comfortable so that we didn't have to worry about the little things. We got a lot of use out of the guidebooks, boogie boards, etc., and your shopping recommendations were right on target. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable that we actually wrote down the make of the mattress! (or was it just Kauai in general that made us sleep so well?) Anyway, thanks for making our first 'internet vacation' a success.

Kelly and Shane, Oregon: Everything was perfect...the house, the boogie boards you had available, the area...everything! Thanks again for all your help, wisdom and great accommodations. I hope we can return again. Aloha and mahalo.

Meg & Greg, Los Angeles: We have loved every minute of our stay in your beautiful home. With all the comforts and amenities this vacation was over the top for us! Thank you for all the details. We'll be back!

Ron, Bev & Shirley from Western Australia: We love everything about this place. It was much more than we expected. Thanks for all the little extras such as the beach shoes, snorkels, masks and boogie boards - we used them everyday. The location had something for everyone. We will be back soon we hope. Chris, thanks for the surfing advice.

Gary: What a great place you have created. You thought of everything. The surfing at Pakala was GREAT! I was really able to unwind in this paradise. Your suggestion of dinner at the Beach House at sunset was great. We fell in love with the tiles in the master shower so we ordered some for our home. Thanks for everything!

Bryan and family, Gaviota, CA: "Your place was our home away from home! We appreciate all of your thoughtful attention to detail.

Wanda, Jon and girls (Mary Kate, Maggie, Madeleine): Thank you for sharing your beautiful house and island. We had such a great time and enjoyed all Kauai has to offer. The girls loved the boogie boarding & the waves. We plan to come back & hopefully bring family or friends!

Larry & Linda & Family, Santa Barbara: "Thanks so much for providing such an enjoyable house. It has been a very comfortable stay. We fell in love with Kauai, beautiful waters, breath taking sunsets."

Chris, It's been 30 years since I was here in Poipu & Kauai running Camp Hawaiian Surf - it was great then and, again, now. We had a ball! Went to Poipu, Polihale, Kokee, Waimea, Hanapepe, Kekaha, Salt Pond, Kipu, Nawiliwili Harbor, Lydgate, Fern Grotto, etc. Played golf at Wailua, Poipu Bay & Kiahuna. A little windy but a great time.

Mai & Alex, San Francisco: "We had a wonderful time. We were delighted with your hospitality. We will be back next year!"

Gary & Family, Pismo Beach: "Oh how I will miss my wonderful home away from home! Had a great time. This house is so beautiful. What a great place you've created, thought of everything. Here are some of our highlights: the helicopter ride, Queen's Pond, Kipu Falls. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable."

Kevin & Tami & Ashley & Blake, Seattle: "This location is optimum! Close to a great swimming beach, great boogie boarding and great restaurants. Thanks for stocking the house with all necessary items (chairs, umbrellas, booties) for proper beach fun. Not to mention the drink cooler - what a lifesaver! We'll be back! As if all of this isn't enough, your hospitality is truly exemplary. I'll recommend this house to my friends. Thanks so much."

Dave & Kristen, Solano Beach: "Thank you for providing us with such a beautiful beach house in Kauai! Aikane Kauai was the perfect place to bring our new daughter."

Jamie & Paul, San Diego: "This house had it all for 2 young bachelor surfers (including killer waves!). Playing dominoes on the patio while BBQing after long days at the beach surfing..."

Tom & Betty, Pasadena: "We loved our stay in every way. We delighted in watching the spinner dolphins at play, whales passing by and the many turtles feeding."

Brad & Schaelene & Christopher & Emma, Sacramento: "We had a great time! Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home! We loved staying here. It was wonderful to wake up to singing birds in the morning."

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why stay at Aikane Kauai Vacation Home?
A: I understand the challenge of picking the absolutely best place for the value when there are quite a few to choose from:

1. Rates: Our rates are among the lowest in the area for such a nice ocean view home by a variety great beaches. Since we are the owners and managers, we decided to offer them for a good value that people will want to return to and also recommend to their friends. Most of our bookings are returning guests and their friends.

2. Location: Aikane is among the small handful of homes by the beach. You won't have to drive to get to the beach. Aikane is on a quiet dead-end side road with no construction nearby.

3. Our websites purposely show photos of the kitchen, several rooms, actual view, and surrounding area. The home is light, open and cool and comes fully equipped with boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, free wireless internet and lots more, about everything you may need for a great relaxing stay.

Convenience, location and value. All things considered Aikane Kauai really is a great place to stay!

Q: Is there A/C?
A: All three bedrooms at Aikane Kauai have wall mounted air conditioners hoever the units are rarely used! First, we designed the home to take advantage of the prevailing trade winds with lots of jalousie windows and good cross ventilation. Second, the picture windows have thermal glass. The home is fully insulated and all rooms have ceiling fans. This really is a comfortable place to stay!

A: We offer last minute discounts to fill gaps at Aikane Kauai. For example, if there is an open slot in the schedule within 30 days of arrival, we would be happy to offer a discount. Let us know if you want to be put on the special alert email list.

A: Aikane Kauai is about 25 minutes / 12 miles from the airport. Once you're at the house there are 3 beaches, 3 restaurants, a deli and a surf/beach ware shop within five minute walks.

I'd highly recommend a car to get to some of the other interesting places on Kauai such as the Waimea Canyon and the more remote beaches east of the house. You really don't need a 4WD unless you want to get to Polihale in the winter and some of the Kokee back roads.
Q: Is our reservation and payment safe?
