Located in Poipu on the Kiahuna Golf Course and 1.25 mile from Poipu Beach, Hale Nene Poipu is an elegant plantation-style house with a private salt water pool/spa and 270 degrees of stunning golf, lake, sunset and ocean views.

THE REVIEWS: A couple of the over 45 Five-Star Vaction Rental (Homes) by Owner Reviews. (For more, see Review Section below.) We are new to Tripadvisor so reviews are posted on our other listing. If you like, search "Hale Nene Poipu" on the Internet and find them under our listings with a major vacation rental by owner company.

A couple of our recent reviews:

"Not our first trip to Hawaii (10th) and not our first trip to Kauai (2nd) but we found the best accommodation this time. Located in a very small quiet community on Kiahuna golf course overlooking the 3rd and 7th (shared) green this two story house was better than the photos. The kitchen was the best supplied we have seen, we lacked nothing in food prep. Rice cooker, cookie sheets, roasting pans, cheese and spice graters, cutting boards, chef and steak knives, pots and pans, and wine glasses with a complete set of plastic dishes and glasses for by the pool. The garage was stocked with shopping bags, beach chairs, sand mats, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, and snorkel equipment. Never one or two but many. The salt pool with a corner of hot tub was the perfect size for us. The second floor is the main floor which gives you an elevated lanai looking over the pool and golf course. What a relaxing place for the days end. The equally large two master bedrooms were well furnished with walk in showers and walk in closets. A third bedroom has two single beds that can go together. The house soon felt like home for our group of two couples. The lanai has a great barbecue with outside beverage fridge and sink and storage cabinets. I cannot give this house a higher recommendation. Our travels have taken us to many countries and this house is without equal. We'll be back."

"This home is absolutely spectacular. The views are amazing and will never disappear. You overlook the third hole on the golf course looking out toward the ocean and on the front side of the house the mountains. We spent the majority of our time on the top patio enjoying these views every day. Elise is so on point no matter what your question is. She responds immediately and has a great response team in Poipu to help out. I am sure she deals with many people over the course of time with different issues but she was so easy to talk with and felt as if I'd known here for a long time. She wants her guests to enjoy their stay and has thought of everything. We have been in several vacation rental homes and this was by far the nicest and most equipped. The area is very relaxing and peaceful. We walked every morning and less than a mile from beautiful beaches, restaurants and shopping. You can't miss here, it is everything you will want it to be"

5 stars is not enough to describe our experience!

June 16, 2016

We have stayed at this lovely home for several years in a row. In fact it is the only home we will rent on Kauai, we feel nothing can compare to the home, the location and the owner! We rent homes all over and this is by far the only one we continue to book on a consistent basis! To begin with the home is located on beautiful quiet golf course. There are no neighbors on either side of the property. It is equipped with a pool and spa in a spacious backyard. The home is complete with cable, apple tv, comfortable beds, an amazing deck that oversees the backyard and golf course as well as a view of the ocean. If I sound like a saleswoman, I'm not trying to! I'm just describing this amazing vacation property! To say the owner is easy to deal with is like saying water is wet! Really! She completes you experience with every detail provided for in her home. Scooters for your kids, boogie boards, towels even grocery bags for your trip to Walmart (they no longer will put your groceries in bags)! We cannot wait to book this home again for next year! It is truly out home away from home!

Amazing Property!
Bob D. Oct. 2016
If I could give this property (and the owner) ten stars I would. We loved staying there and without question exceeded our exceptions. Once you arrive you since you are staying at someones home - not just a rental property. The furnishings are tastefully done. We loved the gourmet kitchen with all high end appliances. The pool and Jacuzzi were awesome. The area is very quite - which we liked a lot. At the end of a day of hiking we sat under the stars, in the Jacuzzi enjoying a glass of wine (no glasses Elise :)). It can't get better than that. Breakfast in the mornings, watching the sun rise on the golf course, with the ocean in the distance. Because the rear of the home faces south you get to enjoy both the sun set and sunrise - and some awesome rainbows too. The south shore was perfect home base and close to the best collection of restaurants and shops. Make sure you check out the Hyatt and hikes on the south shore too. AC was excellent with separate units for up and downstairs. The home has two full Master Suites! The downstairs is like a mini apartment with a small den or sitting area and third bedroom. Both up and down stairs had large flat screen TV's. We didn't do much TV watching but it was nice to catch up on whats going on back home. The entertainment system was easy to use - and we used it a lot. I plugged in my iPod to the docking station and had music throughout the house and yard. Everything you could want in a vacation home this home has. Little things like a book with all the menus from all the local restaurants is there. Just before we arrived Elise sent a visitors package listing all the sights and little hidden gems we normally wouldn't have found. She was like our personal assistant and when I had a question all I had to to was email her. Elise was a difference maker for us. My only caution is this is someones private home and they take great pride in making it beautiful for it's guest. If you are looking for a party house and don't want to worry about how you treat it or how you leave it I would suggest looking else where. We felt we were in our home away from home and treated is as such. through this process Elise has become a friend of ours and we can't wait to return. The place is perfect!!!!

Immaculate Surroundings, Furnishings and Views
Jo B. July 2016
This home has the best view and location that we have stayed at in Kauai! The quiet community and spacious neighborhood makes it so much more enjoyable than those on the beach locations that are tight with vacationers, their vehicles and foot traffic. The home is beautiful from the furnishings to the location and the view off of the stunning lanai to the ocean. The open floor plan on the upper floor living area open to the lanai is brilliant! We played golf one day (and only my son in law is really a golfer) and it was so much fun to stop by the house twice to visit my husband and grand daughter while near, we are going to make it an ongoing future activity. With the air conditioning on and the windows closed the early morning mowers could not be heard and we all slept peacefully and well. There is a great supply of beach chairs and toys for use. Everything is top notch in the home and Elise keeps it that way for all of her guests. If you are looking for immaculate surroundings, furnishings and views, this is the home for you at a solid value. Nothing run down or worn exists in this beautiful location. We have been to Kauai 8 times and have high standards on which this home delivers. Elise is one of the most responsive before, during and after that we have ever dealt with (I have asked her if she sleeps :) ) and she is a true sweetheart who cares about her home so that you will be able to enjoy your vacation in a beautiful setting.

Beyond Amazing
Stephanie G. June 2016
We are a family of 6 with four kids under the age of 10 and this house was beyond amazing!! The kids spent many hours in the pool after a day of adventure on the island. We opted for the ac but spent many evenings with the doors open and relaxed in the breeze from the mountains. This home has plenty of indoor space for everyone to spread out when needed and plenty of seating when we were together. Also this house had everything you could ever need. The kitchen was stocked with every cooking utensil needed and all and bathrooms had shampoo, conditioner, and soap. The kids loved the boogie boards and razor scooters in the garage!!! I can't say it enough this homeowner thought of everything!!! She was so easy to talk to if there was a need and she even sent me all the activities the island had to offer on the 4th of July. Elise wants to ensure you have an amazing vacation and believe me you will in her gorgeous perfect home. Couldn't believe it was located near a beach, the house was so clean, I didn't see a grain of sand anywhere. When we come back we will definitely stay at halenene!!! Mahalo Elise for our best family vacation yet!!!

She wants her guests to enjoy their stay and has thought of everything. We have been in several Vacation Rental by Owner properties and this was by far the nicest and most equipped. The area is very relaxing and peaceful. We walked every morning and less than a mile from beautiful beaches, restaurants and shopping. You can't miss here, it is everything you will want it to be.

Hale Nene Poipu is a wonderful home! You will not find a nicer, better equipped home on Kauai. Elise was the best to work with from start to finish. Never further than a text away if you have any questions. The golf course location is both beautiful and quiet. We were worried about stray golf balls but it was never a problem. Very close to a lot of great restaurants, both in Poipu and Koloa Town. We loved the swimming pool and spa! Elise has supplied the home with everything you could possibly need or want for either the pool or the beach. If Elise hasn't supplied it, you don't need it! The golf course ground crews were never an issue, we were usually up waiting for the amazingly gorgeous Kauai sunrises. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone thinking about vacationing on Kauai. We can't wait to return. Malaho, Elise!

Let me first qualify my review. We are extremely selective with our vacation homes and can be as picky as they get. This home is beautiful, clean, exceptionally decorated and lives up to all expectations. The location is excellent for not being on the beach. Very quiet during the day and very close to what we believe is the nicest location on the island. You will not be disappointed. There is construction going on in the subdivision, but we simply never heard any noise of concern or it was absolutely not an issue. This home is on a beautiful golf course, so the mowers do come out before daylight to cut and groom the fairways and greens. While you can hear the machines very early in the mornings, we use a noise maker and it was again not an issue. If you do not elect to pay for the air conditioning upcharge and leave the doors and windows open at night, this might be an issue, but again, not for us. Elise is absolutely great and spot on with everything. The garage has beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, boards, reef shoes, and on and on. The house wifi is apple and great of course. There are also noise makers in each bedroom. When you have apple wifi and noise makers in each bedroom, the Owner has thought of everything.

My wife and I spent 10 days at the Halenenepoipu house for our anniversary. The house was spotless and fully stocked with all the cook wear, beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling gear and much more. The house is also tastefully decorated, unlike some rental houses that look like they were decorated from garage sales. Elise was great to work with. Very detailed and organized. We have other travel plans in 2016 but will definitely be back in 2017

We have stayed at many condos or homes in our travels. The Halenenepoipu home felt like home. We had all the comforts of our home in Kauai. In the evening my wife and I would sit on the lanai listening to our kids sitting in the hot tub talking about all the adventures they had that day. The 6 of them also talked about being able to come to a place they felt right at home. We have been home a week now and I saw my son. His favorite part of our trip was eating a bowl cereal on the lanai watching the golfer and the ocean in the morning. The owners opened up there arms and welcomed us into their home. They made us feel right at home. If you are looking for quality time with kids, famliy or friends this home has plenty of space. This home is a home run! We are looking forward to returning to this home in the future.

Halenenepoipu is a beautiful, well-located, immaculately clean home that helped us feel at home in Kauai. Our days began with coffee on the lanai, watching the birds and enjoying the serenity of the golf course and ocean view - and ended soaking in the hot tub, or floating in the pool, stargazing and reliving our day's adventures. The owners were extremely easy to work with and provide their guests with high quality amenities. The home has an open floor plan yet provides large, comfortable bedrooms with en suite bathrooms for quiet times. The kitchen was just phenomenal - clean, well equipped, with all Wolf appliances. There was even a beautiful cooking area on the lanai. I highly recommend this property - especially for families with children. The owners had boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels all readily available for our use. Definitely a memorable part of our week in Kauai.

Simply put our stay at Hene Nene Poipu was one of the best vacation experiences we've ever had. The area was beautiful, the house was exactly as advertised, and Elise was just a text away if we had any questions about the residence. The house's location allowed for entertainment during the morning hours watching the golfers lose their balls in the water hazard, swimming in the afternoon or night, and beautiful end to end rainbows during the brief rainstorms of this gorgeous island. For any family that seeks the peaceful serenity of Kauai, I would highly recommend staying at Hene Nene.

Hene Nene Poipu Home was THE BEST home we have rented on Vacation Rental by Owner. From the first contact with Elise, the owner, we knew our vacation was going to be epic. Upon arrival we all felt like this was an extension of our own home. We spent many hours on the lanai eating meals and just relaxing. Elise has thought of every detail in this beautiful home, from a well stocked chef's kitchen, beautiful and comfortable furnished rooms to having beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, masks, fins to keep an active family at the beach all day. Our hardest choice each day was which beach to visit and what will we be making for dinner. The attention to details and impeccable care that is given from the owners makes this a wonderful choice for any family. Kauai will always be our most favorite island and Hene Nene is the only home we will rent on Kauai.

This house is fantastic. Elise, the owner is very patient and exteremly helpful. The house is gorgeous, decorated with excellent taste and layed out in a great way for those traveling with a moderate sized party. We loved the entry way (have to see it to know what I mean) the kitchen and back patio area with the grill. We also spent many hours playing with our son in the salt water pool and spa which was awesome. The house is equipped with almost anything you could need, including beach toys, chairs etc. which was a very pleasant surprise. The house is just right down the road from all of main areas of Poipu beach which includes a general store, a Starbucks (but why would you drink that in Hawaii?) many restaurants and of course the fabulous beaches. We moved here in the middle of our trip because our last house just wasn't working out and I am sooooo glad we did. Everyone in our group was impressed, even my two year old son. Thank you Elise for sharing your wonderful house with my family!

My family has stayed at this home twice now and we cannot imagine ever visiting Kauai and staying somewhere else. The owner (Elise) has thought of everything! We are a family of 4 with two boys currently ages 10 and 8. We have visited with two other adults last year and also this year with another family of 4. Both trips have been absolutely perfect. The home is beautiful and cared for as wonderfully as you would care for your own home. It is not a typical beach rental, which we appreciated. The owners take impeccable care of the home and in turn us as renters treat it as well as our own home while we are there. Honestly, it's perfect! The location is lovely on a golf course just up the street from Poipu so lots of sunny skies and close by to lots of shopping and restaurants. The salt water pool is beautiful and our kids loved it. It was perfect when the adults had enough of the beach, but the kids wanted more fun and water time. They spent multiple times a day in the pool and playing outside. The scooters, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach totes and sand toys in the garage are just one example of the extra thought the owner has put into this home when thinking about what a visitor to her home may need during their stay. Honestly, we have never stayed in a rental as fabulous as this before and intend to come back as often as we can. Besides that, Elise is always available if you need to reach her and she is so good about checking in and giving tips and advice for the trip. We cannot thank her enough. We'll be back for sure and would recommend this rental to anyone planning a visit to Kauai!

My extended family, including four adults and three children just spent two wonderful weeks together in the beautiful Hale Nene Poipu House. I cannot say enough about this beautiful home! From the perfect setting and convenient location, the tasteful furnishings, extremely well equipped kitchen, the indoor/outdoor living area upstairs, abundant beach gear (towels, umbrellas, chairs, etc), to the amazing sun rises and sunsets! The pool was a big hit, especially for the kids! The owner, Elise, was a joy to work with, and very responsive and helpful. We highly recommend this house to anyone - families, couples, whomever - you won't be disappointed. Fantastic!

This beautiful home was perfect in every way. Very well equipped with high end appliances and outdoor grill, which made meal prep very easy. Such a convenient location to beaches and stores. It was a true home away from home. Even though the pool and spa were smaller, it was perfect for cooling off and getting the kinks out after a day touring or at the beach. Home owner was available any time to answer any queries and replied in a very timely fashion. She has been most gracious and supplied a ton of information re the area, which is always most helpful when visiting a new location. We have rented on many occasions and this has been our most positive experience for finding the property to be exactly as portrayed in advertisement. We would highly recommend this property.

I have rented vacation homes for many years, some have been good and some other not as good as advertised. I have to say that this was the best ever. From the moment I booked the house until the time I left, the owner, Elise, was there when needed. Even though we haven't met I feel like she is a friend. The house was in excellent condition and there is nothing you have to bring other than your food and clothes. The kitchen is well stocked as far as dishes, cooking pots and pans as well as utensils. There was never a time I said "I wish we had this" everything was there. When we went to the beach everything we needed was there, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, snorkel gear and swim shoes. There were blow up floats, beach balls and other children's pool toys there to use. The children loved the pool. There were games and books for children. The deck faces the beautiful golf course and it is beautiful to sit out there in the morning and afternoon. Again, this was the best rental experience ever. Thanks Elise I will not hesitate to recommend this house to others.

We were blessed to find this wonderful home to enjoy during our time in Kauai! This home is a wonderful balance of all the things you would want or need during your vacation. The home is beautifully decorated and has great living space for everyone in our party to enjoy. It was so nice to be close to the Poipu beaches, shopping and dining then take quick drive home to enjoy the view and the pool. Besides this amazing home to enjoy.. one of the most appreciated things is Elise ( the owner) she truly is a gem ! She helped make this trip even more special! She had great suggestions on beaches, dining, and coconut cake ( my favorite ) and was quick to respond to any concerns or issues. We cant wait to return to Kauai and this fantastic home.

This home has everything any one would want in a vacation home. The home is updated and extremely comfortable for our family. We have two small boys that love being at the house so much they beg to leave the beach just to go swim at "our house" on Kauai. The house is big enough for my husband and I to have quiet time on the porch overlooking the golf course while my boys play and build Legos, or ride the scooters the owners provide. The house is very private with no neighbors on either side only in front of the house. Truth be told this is a gem. Working with the owner feels more like talking to a friend. She is very responsive and attentive to any needs you may have during your stay. This place is Paradise!

This year our family decided to take a trip together for a winter getaway, and landed on the island of Kauai. We knew we wanted to find a house so that we could enjoy the time together, and the convenience of having everything at our fingertips for cooking and relaxing together. We had no idea that we would find a place that felt like home! Immediately when you walk in the house it takes your breath away. All of the touches are beautiful, and every little last thing you would need or want for a perfect Kauai vacation is taken care of. Since there were three of us couples, we especially appreciated the separate bedrooms with baths so you could have the privacy you normally would in a hotel but with the comfort a home brings. The best part of the stay, however, was how the owners welcomed us into their home. I have to agree with another reviewer, that I am not sure I would share this beautiful property but I am so grateful they did! Since this was our first time to Kauai, we did not know what to expect and had quite a few questions both about the home as well as the local area. She was always prompt about making sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. The hardest part of the whole vacation was leaving. We are counting down the days until we can come back again. Thank you for a world class vacation at your lovely home!

We spent a week at Hale Nene Poipu and we did not want to leave. We tried to rent this house for two weeks but unfortunately it was booked. I picked this house based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. The description of the house couldn’t have been more precise. We found the house in meticulous condition with a state-of-the-art kitchen with every utensil, pan, plate and glass that we could possibly need. We only ate out one of the nights because it was such a joy to cook in the kitchen and BBQ our meats and fish on the outdoor gas BBQ! I especially liked the huge bathrooms with walk-in showers, huge walk-in closets, comfy beds and great views. There were so many amenities provided by the owners including aluminum foil, saran wrap, spices, laundry soap, q-tips, facial cotton pads, full size containers of shampoo and conditioners in each bath and the lists goes on! All the beach equipment was neatly organized in the garage with towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, suntan lotion and bug spray. We have rented many homes and this house was by far the best vacation home I have ever rented. Every morning we walked about a mile to Starbucks for our morning exercise. At dusk, after the golfers were gone, we walked the golf cart path round-trip from Hole 4 to Hole 1, watching the sunset in the distance. I cannot say enough good things about the owners. The booking process was very easy and Elise always answered my emails and texts immediately. The owners go above and beyond to make the renters stay comfortable. We used to stay at Poipu every year when our children were little. After the hurricane, it took a while to rebuild Poipu so we started to vacation elsewhere. We are so impressed with all of the improvements in Poipu. We will definitely be back. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.

Hale Nene Poipu was incredibly beautiful! Our group (4 adults) had never been to Kauai so we did not know what to expect -- we were debating on either renting something right on the beach or this home, and we were so glad we decided to rent here instead! We found that there were many great beaches on Poipu and the rest of Kauai to explore and driving/parking was never an issue, and the views from the house to the golf course and ocean view were just as spectacular. The home itself is simply gorgeous and everything (furniture/floors/counters/etc) is incredibly high quality. The two master bedrooms were huge and magnificent! The house is also stocked -- Boogie boards, scooters, snorkel gear, grill and utensils, all sorts of condiments, etc. Having a private swimming pool was a great way to wind down from an active day. The pool was very warm and relaxing, and the the spa heats up in minutes. The home is the only one on its side of the road (currently), so at night in the backyard it feels very private and relaxing, it was very nice to just lay in the pool and look up at the stars. The only people I wouldn't recommend this home to are those who are looking for a rowdy/party house, the neighborhood is very quiet and the house is far too lovely to want to treat poorly! But for everyone else who would enjoy a relaxing stay in Kauai in a beautiful luxury home, Hale Nene Poipu is ideal. Staying here was a huge part of the reason our group will have such fond memories of Kauai.

Hi Elise - Kelly and I wanted to take a moment to write you a quick note about our vacation. We had such an amazing & memorable stay at your home, Hale Nene Poipu! Just to set the stage, we indeed had very high expectations for this trip in particular, for multiple reasons: 1) we were celebrating our 10-year anniversary 2) it was our 4th time staying in Poipu 3) we were bringing other family members along who were also celebrating key moments in their lives (and visiting Poipu for the first time), and 4) we had rented other homes previously in the area. That being said, your home definitely is definitely all (and more) than you have listed about it. Thought I would just list a few highlights that really differentiated it from the other homes/condos we have rented before in the area: Great location: within walking distance to beaches, early morning breakfast or happy hour Amazing views: we could see everything from the mountains to the ocean and overlook one of Poipu's best golf courses Amenities galore: everything from the salt water pool, manicured lawns and interior décor (including top-of-the-line appliances and baths), to the soft ceiling lighting, made us truly feel like we were staying at a luxury resort Peaceful setting: neighbors were friendly and respectful, and we were just far enough from any other civilization so we could spend the entire night counting the stars Additionally, you were also a key factor in making this vacation so special. Your responsiveness was impeccable, including answering my text messages and emails within minutes when we had a couple of questions during our stay. And, although we had been to the island previously, you also sent over recommendations in advance for where to rent a car, what attractions were worthwhile, and also included a set of menus for all of the local eats in the area for those nights where we just wanted to order some takeout and stay in for the night and enjoy Hale Nene. In short, we have truly had the best vacation yet in Poipu, one that exceeded all of our expectations, and it was largely due to the wonderful home and service that you provided to us as your guests. We truly felt like family, and cannot wait to return to Hale Nene! Thank you so much!! Aloha, Gary

We stayed at Hale Nene this this past July (2013) and have never looked back! The house was perfect for all seven family members including two grandsons, ages 6 and 7. Loved the pool and spa – they were the perfect ticket for keeping the boys (and family) active when not at one of the beautiful beaches or exploring Kauai. The area is quiet and offers beautiful vistas to the ocean across the Kiahuna Plantation Golf Course and to the north east is a great view of some of the island mountains. If we were to grade the property on a scale of one to ten, it would be an easy 10+! Highly recommend it for families or multiple couples. Thank you, Elise and family for sharing your beautiful home and if we travel to Kauai again, Hale Nene is our destination! Aloha. The Davis Family

My family of 5 (ages 11 to 75) spent 8 wonderful days and nights at Hale Nene Poipu and could not have found any house more perfect for us. We plan to return every year for many years to come. This amazing home far exceeded our expectations. It is huge, providing lots of space to enjoy time together and moments of quiet solitude. The house feels both luxurious and extremely comfortable. Elise has filled it with everything one could possibly need or want –completely stocked gourmet kitchen and bathrooms, extremely comfortable furniture, boogie boards, beach chairs and towels, board games, and guide books. The house is also perfectly situated – on a quiet street with easy access to all that Kauai has to offer – only minutes from amazing beaches, snorkeling (we saw sea turtles starting on day 1 at a spot Elise recommended), surfing, boogie boarding and one of the best fish markets (Koloa Fish Market) on the Island. We bought fish at this market and relaxed at the house while cooking the fish on the lanai grill and watching the parrots fly over the golf course almost every evening. The house is also a convenient location for day trips to Waimea Canyon, Hanalei Bay, the Na Pali Coast, whale watching and sunset sails. While staying at Hale Nene Poipu, we felt like we were in paradise from the moment we woke up to the moment we went to sleep. Thank you Elise for making your home our home for 8 perfect days.

My husband Al, sister Sue and her husband Jeff and I stayed at Hale Nene Poipu this spring. We were there to celebrate our 30th anniversary and are from Alberta, Canada. Suffice it to say, this was one of the most beautiful spots we have ever been. We arrived at the house late so it was dark when we drove up, but the house was impressive even then. When we walked in, we were astounded. Everything required for a perfect vacation was there. The way the house is designed is perfect for two couples. Sue & Jeff had the master suite on the pool level; we had the suite on the main level. The bathrooms were huge! There’s another room on the pool level with its own bathroom, so you could easily stay three couples or add a couple of kids. Our mornings started with Kauai coffee on the deck watching the golfers trying to hit the green on Hole 3 of the Kiahuna Golf Course. In the distance is the ocean & we were lucky enough to see whales breaching (bring binoculars!). When we tired of watching Hole 3, there were four other greens to keep our eyes on. As well, many colourful birds made appearances. Then it was down to the pool and our loungers! Again, everything we needed was there as well, such as beach towels. We finished almost every day in the hot tub. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. Sue was flabbergasted with the top end appliances (she is a HGTV fan!). The outside BBQ & subzero fridge on the deck kept our "sodas" really cold. Took a Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour & loved it. Also drove to Waimea Canyon; I highly recommend this trip & it’s not that far from home. Drove to Princeville on the northeast side - gorgeous. We only did one round of golf because Al had hurt his arm. He was the best caddy I ever had! If he’d been healthy, we would’ve golfed more. After 12 p.m., with cart & club rentals, it's $120 each on our “home course.” Elise was fantastic and responsive to our every need and request for information. She really cares about you and the quality of your vacation. There are rules to the house, and if it were my house, I would have the same rules. Really, if you treat this house the way you would treat your own home, you will be fine. It was comforting to know that someone has the same values as you do. This is her home and she & her family are generous enough to share it with us. Hale Nene Poipu was just what we needed - luxury, sun & relaxation. I will never forget this time and the laughs we shared. MAHALO ELISE.

We had a fabulous stay at Hale Nene. House exceeded expectations and Elsie was like dealing with your best friend! Wonderful kitchen and well appointed. Everything was top notch from linens to beach toys. We didn't need a thing to have a superb vacation. There was nothing left undone from a renters perspective! Enjoyed grilling on the built in grill on the lanai. The pool and hot tub were awesome-warm and clean. Have rented several other homes in Kiahuna and nothing compares to Elsie's attention and the beautiful home she shared with us. Tried to book a return visit for 3 months from now and the house was already booked or we would be back staying here again. Elsie is a renters dream to work with. Could not have asked for more- and we have high expectations about the homes we rent. We would nightly recommend this home to anyone traveling to Kauai.

Not much to add to all the glowing reviews - the house is prettier than the pictures, extremely well-equipped, quiet and comfortable. Our kids loved zooming around the empty neighborhood streets on the scooters provided, and we had some great meals from the good-quality bbq on the deck. Fun to watch the golfers trying to keep their balls out of the water hazard. Didn't find the morning mowing to be too noisy, but we are good sleepers! The saltwater pool is very pretty but was too cold to use in March - fortunately the hot tub really does heat up in 15 minutes so we got good use out of it. Elise is a delight to deal with and went out of the way to make sure we had a great experience. Mahalo Elise!

Hale Nene Poipu is one of the finest accomodations in Kauai. We stayed here in October 2011 and the house is as described. The location is good, directly on the golf course, about one mile from the ocean. The house is well equipped and in impeccable shape. The kitchen leaves nothing to be desired. The owner was helpful and friendly. We will hopefully make it back to Poipu and stay here again in the future.

We recently rented this home for a family reunion/vacation for 6 people. I cannot say enough good things about this house and the area! It is amazingly luxurious and upscale yet still comfortable and welcoming. We loved that each bedroom had its own bath and the layout really allowed us to be together yet still have some quiet time if needed. The owner went out of her way to ensure that we had all of the beach supplies that we could possibly need including towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, and beach mats. The pool and hot tub are a wonderful place to watch the sunset over the water and golf course. The home is just minutes from incredible snorkeling on Poipu Beach and there are plenty of restaurants and shops close by. We will definitely be returning to Hale Nene Poipu soon!

9 days of pure relaxation and bliss! If you are looking for a brand new private home that is meticulous, with every amenity well thought out, a relaxing pool, and a wonderful location near shopping villages and Poipu beach(the best family beach we have EVER been to), then this is the place for you. The house's quiet location in Koloa made it easy to access everything from the Western and Southern shores to Lihue. We loved looking out onto the golf course and the distant ocean every morning. Cooking in the well stocked kitchen and BBQ was effortless, every appliance was top of the line and easy to use. The pool was inviting but once my kids found the boogie boards provided they were at Poipu & Shipwreck beach almost every minute of the day, but couldn't wait to come back to the house with its's spa-like showers (loved the Alba shampoos provided!) and super comfy beds. Thank you Elise for everything you did to welcome us prior to and during our stay. All your recommendations were very helpful and we used it as a guide for our adventures in Kauai. We have stayed in condos and houses before but this was by far the best and most luxurious treat. We look forward to coming back again.

Beautiful Location- Fabulous Home We recently returned from a ten day stay with our three kids, ages 8 to 11 at this beautiful home. The photos do not do it justice as it is truly more beautiful in person! This home provided the luxury feel of the big hotels, but with the privacy and solitude that we were hoping for. The bedrooms and bathrooms were extremely spacious and the home is wonderfully decorated. The pool, while not huge, was perfect for the kids to play around and we were always guaranteed a poolside spot! We also appreciated how well-stocked the house was with boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. No detail has been overlooked! Elise, the owner, was great to work with and always followed up in a timely manner. She was careful to ask the age of our children and after visiting the house I can understand why she is cautious. The house really is not designed for toddlers since all of the main interior flooring and pool stairs are slate tile. I would also be cautious about recommending it to families with elderly family members who might be unstable on stairs. While beautiful, it does make it a bit more risky to navigate. Poipu is the best area in Kauai, in our opinion, and this is definitely one of the prime rentals. One of the pleasant surprises of our trip was our tour of the Allerton Botanical Gardens. It was absolutely gorgeous and a must for anyone with an interest in that sort of thing. Hands down, our best meal was at Roy's. The only disappointing thing about our trip was having to leave. Hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did!

Thank you Elise for sharing your beautiful Hale Nene home! It was immaculate upon arrival and we were pleasantly surprised to find quality beach items including sand chairs, towels, & boogie boards. We stayed on the second floor and it was perfect to have the open living space, beautiful outdoor space, kitchen & master suite. We enjoyed the peaceful and quite area. the view of the golf course and view of the ocean. The master bedroom was beautiful with a very comfortable king bed & a walk in closet. Huge master bath with double shower heads, double sinks & a huge soaking tub. We used the pool and spa several times each day and the pool lounge chairs were perfect! We cooked in the beautiful kitchen and outdoor BBQ area, which was well stocked and again with quality items. This is a perfect area, close to beautiful beaches and we love this location on the island. You'll find Elise a most helpful host and a great resource to plan a perfect vacation. We had a most memorable 34th anniversary and would love to come back again!

We loved our stay at Hale Nene. This home is beautifully furnished, immaculate and stocked with everything you will need for your vacation including beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, etc. There was information about things to do on Kauai, places to eat, even books about the beautiful birds you will hear during your stay. We had 3 different families staying at the house and there was plenty of room for everyone to gather together or be on their own. There was always a breeze throughout the house--we didn't use the air conditioning at all. The pool and spa were great. The lounge chairs were so comfortable. The master bedroom suite was fantastic as were all of the bedrooms with their own bathrooms and dressing areas. Elise, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful vacation home. We hope to come back again.

Thank you very much for your review, Robin. With jobs and children in school, our family doesn't spend as much time there as we would like - so it has been especially fun to hear about everyone's stay and the good time they had with their families at Hale Nene. Thank you again - and Aloha!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How far away is the Beach? Can you see the ocean?
A: Hale Nene Poipu is 3/4 mile from the ocean and has ocean horizon views. Poipu Beach is 1.25 miles away. We typically drive down with beach chairs, umbrellas, drinks and toys or some folks walk down.
Q: How far is the house from restaurants and grocery?
A: Hale Nene Poipu had many restaurants of all styles within 1-2 miles from the house. Poipu Shopping Village and the Shops and Kukuiula are 1 and 2 miles away, respectively.
Q: Do we need AC?
A: The need for AC is variable. Some (my husband) always use it, and others never do. The tropical weather is unpredictable. If the trade winds stop blowing or the humidity rises, folks tend to want the AC. I recommend it, particularly for use at night, as it make the house cleaner (no wind, rain or red dirt blowing in), quieter and more secure (you can keep the windows closed and doors locked at night).

When requested, the cleaning service unlocks the system thermostat's before arrival.
