"Beautiful home
This house was all we could as for. Spacious, well maintained, great location. Large lanai were we ate and enjoyed the weather. Kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and eating. There were beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrella, and breach toys to use. "

"Beautiful big home in Poipu
Our extended family spent 10 days in this beautiful home near Poipu Beach. The layout of the home was perfect for us, as our son, daughter-in-law, and 2 infant granddaughters had the lower part of the unit which gave them the privacy they needed as well as plenty of space. Everything they needed for their girls was provided for them. The upstairs area with the two bedrooms and baths worked out well for our daughter and son-in-law as well as for my wife and myself. The living areas are quite large and well-furnished. Everything you need in the kitchen is provided, and the outside deck area is wonderful for dining and enjoying the view of the ocean and the sound of the waves. The pictures of the home on the website are accurate, and you won't be disappointed. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The location close to Baby Beach is perfect for families with young children, and the other beaches nearby provide great surfing for the more adventurous. You can't ask for nicer people at Poipu 365, the management group, as they were very welcoming and responsive. Great customer service. We will definitely rent this property again in the future and recommend it to our friends."

"Family vacation to Poipu
Loved the location. "

"Great place to stay
We had a wonderful time staying at Poipu 365. The house is in an ideal location, close to the beach and the greenway trail that connects various villa's to the Hyatt resort.
The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and the beds were comfortable.
A nice touch is membership at the Poipu fitness club - which has nice work out machines and free weights as well as a yoga room. The club also has a pool with waterslide and a really great restaurant. I highly recommend the Poipu 365."

"Perfect in Poipu
Our group of 9, including children and adults, had a wonderful stay at Kahele Kai. It was just as portrayed in the listing, if not better! Clean and well cared for. Beautiful view, easy walk to beach, plenty of room, well-equipped kitchen, and great beach gear. We (especially the kids!) also enjoyed the pool at the athletic club that comes with the rental. "

"Great stay with the family
Great location, just a stone’s throw from the beach and eatery’s. Great seeing lots of turtles and monk seals. The balcony was great with really nice views of the boogie board beach and wonderful sunsets. Out of ten day stay we barbecued and ate in 8 days so the kitchen area right off the deck worked out great. Beach chairs were provided with just a two minute walk to the beach. House was was well equipped and would definitely stay again."

"Location is perfect, amenities are top notch. What a gem!
We had a party of 7 (Grandparents, Parents, and 3 older kids (20, 17, and 13). This location was perfect. My husband loved going on early morning runs, my sons enjoyed going out walking around Poipu and exploring, I enjoyed hanging out on the lanai and early morning walks on the beach (always saw turtles and monk seals lying about), my 13 year old took her journal down to the beach and just relaxed, my parents enjoyed resting and having a leisurely breakfast on the lanai...

The location is amazing. We were steps away from the bodyboarding beach, but it was super crowded (spring break) so we walked on only about 100 yards or so to the Poipu beach, which was crowded as well but had more room to for sure. My son and I snorkeled (the break was a bit rough, so just watch the currents and ask the lifeguards especially if you're not used to snorkeling.) We saw a lot of healthy fish, including the state fish and all the regulars. After beach, the outdoor shower at the house is just so great. I really want one for my house, and we don't even live steps to a beach!!

We ate in 3 nights of our 4, and that worked well for us. The kitchen had everything we could want. Bring some of your own coffee beans or a pack of ground coffee- when we were there there was a coffee grinder and a coffee machine with plenty filters. We just needed some beans and we were all set.

The rooms were perfect for our party- boys each got a queen bed in the lower level, and their own bathroom. On the top floor, my parents had a King bed and a hallway full bathroom right outside their door, and my husband and I and our daughter had the room with the King/twin with the en-suite bathroom- plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably.

The AC is so great also. We live in Hawaii so we are used to tropical living, but it's nice to have AC to freshen up the air as needed. It's sometimes hard to find AC units in rentals, so this was a great bonus. We were"

"Exceeded our Expectations
We had a lovely stay in this home with our family. We have stayed on Kauai for 20 plus years in the Popiu area. We needed a larger space for our extended family. We had a very nice stay and were sad to have to leave. Booked our next years stay while we were there."
Mar 09, 2022 - Susan W., Edina, MN

"Excellent Vacation Property
Kahele Kai was an excellent family gathering property. Close to all Poipu Beach area activities and a great home layout to accommodate the entire family. I would definitely choose Kahele Kai again for a family vacation on Kaua'i."

Clean, well maintained property in an ideal location close to a very nice beach. Lots of family fun. "

Location excellent, property was perfect for large family. We had everything we needed. "

"Great house for extended family
Our family (3 generations) loved the house, and it’s location. No negatives! We had a great week with this as our base for sightseeing and beach-going on Kauai"

"Best rental ever

Played board games also supplied at the house lA full beautiful kitchen . Can’t wait to go back with kids and a grand baby that’s expected ."

"Our Trip to Poipu
We had wonderful time and this house was perfect. The location is great and exactly what we wanted. The size was also great. We would definitely stay there again - 5 stars!"

"Stay in Poipu house
Our stay in Poipu included 7 adults and was the perfect home to accommodate our needs. It was well equipped with a propane grill, air conditioning, outdoor shower, plenty of beach equipment and is walking distance to beaches and restaurants. Management was very courteous and responsive to all of our needs. Only suggestion is to replace a few of the beach chairs. "
Jul 27, 2021 - , Oklahoma City , OK

"Perfect house with a ton of room
Our family of four recently stayed at Kahele Kai for four nights. The house has a ton of room and was more than enough for our needs. The house was clean and well stocked, and exactly as shown in the photos. The beach is a short walk, and the evenings on the deck were wonderful. I recommend this rental without hesitation. "
Jul 20, 2021 - Jeremy M., Tacoma, WA

"Amazing Mecca a block from Poipu Beach
Huge home with tons of parking and an outdoor shower for sand stuck to your feet! Large bedrooms with extra sleeping areas. Downstairs apartment and upstairs area, both big enough to have a 16 person BBQ quite easily, which we did! Quiet neighborhood. Sunset turtles and seals on the beach, shaved ice/crazy hot dogs/Poke tacos 2 blocks away. Washer and dryer, dishwasher, shampoo and conditioner, etc. Spices, pans, everything you might need for a week away. Our family of 5 had tons of room and other family came to visit and were jealous of all the space. Great decorations as well, with banana and mango trees on the property and lizards and frogs running around. Excellent Lanai with wifi for working away from home. SO MUCH SPACE!"

"Perfect Kauai Beach House
We had a wonderful time at Kahele Kai. It is close to everything but your own private oasis. The house was spotless, well stocked, very comfortable and plenty of room for our family. Would definitely rent again. The owner and rental staff of Poipu 365 were responsive and extremely helpful. Thank you for helping make our vacation an experience we will never forget. "

"Amazing space right by the beach and South Shore activities
We had an amazing time at this place. We had 4 friends here for a week working remotely and there was tons of space for us. The patio overlooking the beach was the best feature, both for work and for meals/drinks. Well stocked kitchen and super close to all of the things we wanted to do near Poipu. Club access was also great for the pool and sports. Only small gripe was that the place did not come with shampoo and conditioner, so be sure to pack those."
Jun 06, 2021 - Aneesh J., Santa Monica, CA

"Comfortable home near the beach!
We shared this rental house with 2 friends, and there was plenty of room for the 4 of us. We didn't even need the downstairs area, and I'm sure 3 couples would be comfortable staying here. We
loved the balcony and were out there for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. From there, you could get a glimpse of the ocean, just like their picture shows, and hear the crashing waves. We didn't use the AC all the time, but using it occasionally to dry out from the humidity and cool off was a big plus.
The house was among several others in a quiet area away from the road. The best feature of our stay was that several beaches, a park along the shore, and an excellent snorkeling area were all within walking distance. We swam and snorkeled every day!
There were numerous green sea turtles, both basking on the beach and in the ocean, as well as a monk seal that came ashore often.
We really enjoyed our time at this house and would gladly return on future visits."
May 10, 2021 - Paul B., Phoenix, AZ

"Great House, Great Location
Our family had a wonderful time in this home. Plenty of space and a great layout. Easy very short walk to the beach which you can see from the lanai. The kids loved boogie boarding at Brennecke's beach. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. Thanks for sharing your house."

"Great Place to Stay
Our stay here in Kauai couldn't have been better. Centrally located in this tropical paradise. "

"Great Vacation Home
Great stay at this home. Plenty of room for 6 adults. Loved the Lanai and spent a lot of time there. Would definitely stay again."
Mar 15, 2020 - , Lumsden, Sask

WE LOVED this house so much. Coming from a condo in Maui as our previous rental space, this house afforded so much more room for us all to have our own space. Each room is tucked into a different corner of the house, giving everyone their privacy. The common areas are huge, so we had plenty of space to spread out and eat together. The kitchen was EXTREMELY well stocked with seasonings, equipment, etc. The windows let in a good breeze and the AC was great for picking up the slack. The property was full of beautiful fruit trees and we loved the outdoor shower. The only thing we didn't like was the roosters - they're all around Kauai and love to keep you awake at night. THIS IS NOT UNIQUE TO THIS HOUSE, so don't let it keep you from booking - I only mention it to bring a sound machine to drown them out! :) We could not have been happier with this space and found it wonderful we could do in-unit laundry as we needed at the end of our trip! Check out was a breeze and the beach club membership was hugely helpful the last day - we could still use showers after using the beach, etc. MAHALO!"

"Family Vacation in Kauai - January 2020

We absolutely loved Kahele Kai, the house we rented for 10 days for our family vacation in Kauai. The house was immaculate and homely. From our arrival it was great. There was a lovely welcome letter and all the necessary things to get us going. We didn't have to bring anything like towels, beach equipment, etc. They even had small things like soap, dishsoap, paper towel etc etc. The location was great, we had beautiful views of the sea from the Lanai and we loved sitting out on the Lanai. We loved the air conditioned bedrooms and it helped with the roosters."
Jan 28, 2020 - Judy H., Calgary, AB

"Wonderful Kauai
Our trip was made especially wonderful by renting the Kahele Kai house. Location was perfect. The house was equipped with more than one would expect. It was clean, airy, and perfect for our needs and family of nine. I could not have asked for a better rental experience."
Jan 10, 2020 - Charles R., Tampa, FL

"Beautiful property, great location, thin walls
I really wanted to give this property a five-star rating in every category because it is a great location with well-maintained facilities. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the quick walk to Poipu Beach. However, the walls/windows were so thin, we were woken up each morning at 4 am, 4:30 am, 5 am by roosters. Their crowing was so loud, it was almost like they were in the property with us. The rooster would set off the baby in the house next door and we could hear them both (baby crying, rooster crowing) each morning before the sun rose. The air conditioning helped drown out a bit of the sound, but not enough to let us sleep."

"November Wedding Stay at Kahele Kai
The house was more than expected. It was super clean. Close to the beach. Just the right size for six. the view was extraordinary of the beach and water"
Nov 16, 2019 - , Vancouver, WA

"Perfect for a large family
This house was perfect in size for a large family. It had everything we need as far as amnesties and plenty more than what we expected. The property’s manager was very sweet and even brought us flowers. The house has AC which is not very common on the island But completely necessary due to the humidity. We loved this place and would love to stay again. "

"Perfect Hawaii Beach House!
This house was perfect for our family of 5! Our kids could easily walk to the beach from this house (ages 8-14). The kitchen had all the tools we needed to cook meals. We loved being able to hear the ocean from the lanai. The house was clean, we did have a few ants but we knew being on an island that could happen! It wasn’t anything we had to call and complain about. The 3 full bathrooms worked great and we used the washer and dryer daily! Overall, we would highly recommend staying at this property. The added bonus of the Poipu beach club membership was great! We loved using the gym and pool. "

"Didn't want to leave
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kahele Kai! The house was clean and had so many amenities! We appreciated all the beach chairs, towels, boards, etc! We really felt like we were at our own home. AWESOME in every way! "

"Good place, great location
We liked this house - very walkable to the beach, sunsets etc. Used the Beach Club membership just about every day - great for kids and a nice benefit. Overall, the house was as represented and a good fit for our family."

"Lovely Property, Short On A Few Basics
Immediately on arrival we were happy with the house that would be our home for two weeks. A Breathtaking view of the ocean. It was disappointing that the house was not well stocked with paper products. We rent out our lake cabin and provide more than enough paper products for the duration of our guests stay. The kitchen is spacious but if you want to cook be sure to stock up on spices as there will be none in the cupboards. Plenty of dishes and flatware but it would be nice if the owners would get better quality knives for the cooks. The placement of the dishwasher is regrettable for those who are tasked with emptying it as it is hard to reach cupboards that are blocked by a dishwasher door, especially if you can't even reach above it. The barbecue was not in good working condition, which was a big disappointment. The hot water tank quit one of the days and after cold showers all around, we were told it was because it had been a cloudy day before and the tank was solar powered which made it fail. Be sure to keep the deck door closed or the lovely birds will come in for a visit. Overall the home was lovely but I am not sure we would rent it again. "
Mar 23, 2019 - Steve G., Spokane, WA

"First time renting a home
Traveled to Hawaii with another couple and found that sharing a home was a better deal than two condos.
Beautiful home with some water views. Home was in immaculate shape. Just like you would want your own home to be. Wonderful, large lanai was a hit!! Plenty large enough for 6 adults. "

"Perfect Hawaiian Getaway!
We rented this house for two families and it was perfect. The teenagers had their own area in the lower level of the house complete with bathroom and a tv area. They loved it and the adults loved having the upstairs. I'm pretty picky and can usually find something to improve upon - but with this home and the rental process I cannot. Far exceeded all of our expectations. Fully stocked kitchen, lovely terrace, lots of beach towels, beach toys, chairs, umbrellas. The outdoor shower was great for getting all the sand off after a day at the beach. Location was excellent - walk to many beaches, an amazing walk/hike to the east along the cliffs, turtles, seals, restaurants, surf shop. "
Nov 20, 2018 - , camas, WA

"A Perfect Place to Fully Enjoy Kauai
This was my first time bringing my family to Kauai and there were so many options of places to stay. I wanted somewhere within walking distance of the beach so some of us could take the rental car and some of us could hang out at a nice location and walk to the beach. This was perfect! The owners seemed to think of everything we might need--including umbrellas, chairs, sand toys, and dish/laundry soap. It was clean, good flowing air, and the lanai was heavenly. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. I am picky with where I stay and this place exceeded my expectations! Thank you for having such a wonderful beautiful home!"

We had a great time. Everything worked as advertised and there was no need to contact the staff for anything. It was very well equipped. The location was excellent, near good snorkeling and a nice restaurant. We had nine guests and everyone was pleased with the accommodations. Just right! The a/c was good upstairs and is necessary in the heat."

I was nervous of our first time booking vacation home because of our big family get together and it was the best vacation ever. Really!!!

"Wonderful view, close to beach, plenty of room.
This home is excellent for families or larger groups. Plenty of room and close to the beach. The only disappointment was the BBQ did not work. Repairman came out, said he would get parts, never came back. Closet door fell off tracks, irrigation system burst at 3:00 am and shot water all over. This home has AC which is nice upstairs. We would stay here again."

"Everything perfect
Outstanding rental! I have stayed here before and it was even better this time with addition of a/c (even though we didn't need it this stay)."
Jan 05, 2018 - paula b., Brentwood, California

"Gary G Review
This house needs a/c very badly. We suffered in the heat and humidity. We expected better cooling air flow from the ocean. We had 3 friends in another house that had great a/c and much better cooling air flow on their decks outside. Very had to sleep at night when it was so warm. Other than that the house was great. I would not stay in a unit or house in this area without a/c ever again."
Jul 26, 2017 - Gary G., Santa Rosa, CA

"A relaxing stay with a view
We had a great time at this house. The rental was very clean and well stocked with all you need to cook and eat. In addition there was a good selection of beach towels, umbrellas and outdoor gear.

You can see and hear the waves crashing on the rocks from the house, and the location is really nice. A kid-friendly beach is a 5-10 minute walk (3-4 blocks). There is a closer beach with larger waves. A shopping center with restaurants and general store is a short drive way.

There is no air conditioning in this house, but there are (several) ceiling fans in each room. It got a bit hot, but with the windows open and a breeze it was never too bad.

There is construction happening right behind though, so with the windows open you can hear them start at 8am weekdays. However think light hammering, not heavy machinery. This didn't really bother us either.

A person from the agency was there when we arrived, and the one call we made to them was responded to promptly. Booking was easy as well.

Overall a great stay and great base for exploring the island. "

"Liu Visit to Kahele Kai
House was fabulous. Enjoyed our stay very much. Great location. Open house layout added to relaxing experience. Nice pluses like games, beach equipment and towels, outdoor shower, extra large lanai, bed rail for toddler. A few cons: downstairs horizontal dresser drawers difficult to open/close, proximity to and acoustic pathway to neighbors house resulted in us waking up at 5:00 half the mornings even though they were not talking unusually loud, leaking dishwasher."
Jul 05, 2017 - Helen L., alameda, California

"Kahele Kai stay
We loved this house - it was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 1 toddler. Layout and furnishings of the house are very comfortable. We were disappointed that some 'basics' were not provided that we had to purchase - for example laundry soap and basic kitchen condiments. We also found that the downstairs refrigerator did not work, and the blender did not work (we borrowed one from the nice neighbor). The location of the house is ideal, close to the park, beach and restaurants."

"Kahele Kai 10 Day Stay
This house was perfect for the 7 of us (My husband and I with our two young children, my parents and aunt). It was immaculate when we arrived and we had rented a wagon, umbrella and beach chairs and they were waiting for us at the front door. The house is spacious and well laid out. We found that there were tons of beach toys, boogie boards and chairs for us to use. We loved the outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach. It was a fantastic location and a great place to stay for 10 days. We will be back again! "

"The perfect place for a family to stay in Paradise!
The home was exactly what we needed. Our group consisted of my parents, my husband and I and our 2 small kiddo's. The house was perfect, my parents had their own separate area downstairs with a living room, kitchenette and bedroom/bath. It worked out great. The home had all the stuff needed for the kids (high chair, pack n play). With small kids we ate at the home quite a bit. The kitchen area was great. Everyone's favorite spot was on the lanai. We will be back for sure! "

This house was great. It is an older home but very nicely updated. Loved the outdoor areas and large kitchen."

"Terrific holiday
Our vacation was amazing. The two weeks we had the weather was awesome! The house that we rented was extremely comfortable and super close to the beach. We had 3 couples and 2 kids and 2 babies. Lots of space for everyone! House was very clean and well kept! Thanks to poipu 365 for an amazing vacation! We will be back for sure! "

"Poipu luxury stay
We loved the Kahele Kai house in Poipu, with its beautiful sunset views, quick walk to the beach, beautifully decorated home and spacious layout. We especially loved the outdoor shower!"
May 06, 2016 - Emily B., Ashland, Oregon

"Best find of our stay on Poipu
Surrounded by a variety of banana and fruit trees creating privacy,
A spacious covered deck allowed for lounging in the rain and hot sun,
A partial view of the surf and beach.
Comfortable 2 level home allowing for privacy. Great beds and comfortable furniture. Good kitchen. Afew things needed attending to which they were notified about. "

"Family Vacay
We had a wonderful time in Kauai. The reservation process was easy and the accommodations were just right for our group of 6 plus a baby."

"Kahele Kai
Nice home, great location. Watch out for centipedes downstairs, son was bit on foot while asleep. Very painful! Currently no sand at Brenneke beach, have to navigate rocks to swim or body board. "

"Family bithday
Spent six days in Kauai-such a wonderful experience. Accomodations were exactly what we were expecting. There were six of us staying here...There was plenty of room for all of us. Did not have any issues AT ALL with our rental. Definitely would stay here again"

"Group of 8 from Seattle
Our group consisted of my family of 4 with young kids, and two additional couples. The layout of this home was perfect for our group, with lots of shared family space upstairs and a more private suite with kitchenette downstairs for our noisy kids. Nice amenities, well cared for home. Would definitely stay here again when visiting Poipu."

"Spacious vacation rental
Kahele Kai was a perfect location for a week in Poipu. Beautiful house that was quite spacious. We would definitely return. "

"A Perfect Vacation Home
We loved the house - it was roomy, airy, nicely furnished and well-maintained. And a three minute walk to the beach! We would definitely recommend it to friends and family."

"Our visit to the kahele Kai
The house was nice, very clean and comfortable. The location was just a short walk to the beach and the beach area was awesome. The only problem at the house we had was a plugged tub in the main bathroom. We found a plunger downstairs and was able to take care of the problem. Our stay was very enjoyable."
Jun 18, 2015 - , Renton, WA

"Pleasant Experience
After having a little trouble initially finding the house (we arrived pretty late in the evening). We were pleasantly surprised how spacious the house was. The house had three large bedrooms, separate bathrooms, and a nice master suite.

The house was conveniently located half a block from the beach and down the street from Brennecke's Beachfront Restaurant, which has amazing ahi tacos. The property managers left a lot of amenities in the house to help out; sun screen, soap, shampoo, beach toys, etc.

Overall, our group was very happy with out stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the property again. "
Jun 01, 2015 - Rebecca S., FAIRBANKS, AK

"Great, updated home.
My understanding is that the house was recently updated prior to our visit and it showed. The house was really nice with a nice, big kitchen. We also really liked the layout with what you could almost consider a separate unit downstairs, it's own living area, bedroom and bathroom. That was really good for us with a 2 year old.

The only thing I gave 4 stars for instead of 5 was location. It's really a great location, close to Brennecke and Poipu beaches, but you can't (at least from what we could tell) walk the 75 yards straight to Brennecke unless you walked across other properties' yards - which we didn't think would be polite. We walked on the road which made it more of a 5-10 minute walk instead of a 2 minute walk. No big deal, but thought I'd mention it.

Overall, really great property with really nice management. Would stay again."

"Kahele Kai great location
The location of Kahele Kai house is great. A short walk to the beach, a great view, safe location. It's a beautiful house with quality amenities. The home was high quality, however the couch, loveseat, dining room chairs where ripped and very worn. "
May 06, 2015 - Julie H., Aloha, OR

"Our First Trip to Hawaii
We had a threat of double hurricanes hitting during our stay. Luckily they turned away from the Island and our stay was awesome. The location was perfect for walks along the beach every day. The house was very nice. Some of the furniture/appliances/stereo/television are worn and need replaced/upgraded. I wasn't sure what to expect but was surprised to find most everything we would need to make our stay comfortable (shampoo/conditioner, beach towels, ice cooler, etc.). Overall we loved the house and location. We only wish we would have stayed longer than 7 nights. "

"Perfect vacation rental for our family
Our family of 7 adults thoroughly enjoyed this property. It was exactly as described and pictured... only seemed better when there. Location is great. We were a bit worried about not having a pool, but proximity to beaches made us quickly forget that concern. Nice kitchen, outdoor shower area, very clean!"

"A wonderful home with great Poipu Beach access
We loved our stay at Kahele Kai! The home was spacious, clean and well appointed for our two week stay. With grandchildren in tow we appreciated the convient beach access. The home was perfect for evening BBQs on the deck with its ocean vista. With tall foliage on three sides the home felt quite private. Kahele Kai was perfect for our family vacation.

"Kahele Kai July 4th weekend
We were here for a family reunion. The house was great - clean, huge and close to the beach. It was perfect for 3 families. There was a boogie board we used and some beach toys. There was also a cooler that we used as well. I loved that they had a shower outside the front door. We were able to clean off before going into the house. Christine from Poipu 365 was great! She was very easy to work with and gave us all the details. No hidden costs and very reasonably priced. "

"A+ vacation in Kauai
The home was a great size for our two families and with the upstairs and downstairs, wonderful to be able to have our adult time upstairs after putting all the kids to bed downstairs. We loved being able to walk to the beach. We had the best vacation ever!"
Jun 14, 2014 - Kristie J., Carmichael, CA

"Great house in a perfect location.
Our family of 6 adults and 2 children had a wonderful week. Vicky and Christine were wonderful help when there was a refrigerator problem (the repair man was sent out immediately), and when we had to receive an emergency ID replacement by express mail. The house was one of the cleanest rentals we have had. We would do this again without question. Mahalo!"

"POIPU'S best vacation home!!
This was a real treat of a pre cruise 3 night stay for our adult party of 6. We found the accommodations perfect, a lovely well-cared for home. We felt special and privileged to be treated to this lovely bit of paradise. Great for couples who want a quiet and relaxing place. Lovely view of the ocean and beach. Walking distance to beach and dining. All the needed kitchen utensils and BBQ...even tho we didn't use it. Clean!"

"Great location.
Awesome location. Great house, comfortable,spacious. Nice to have beach gear/toys. Kitchen well equipped. Near best beach. "

"Good Deal
We had a wonderful time staying at Kahele Kai in Poipu. I would say for the price it was a good deal. The location was great. Just a 5 minute walk to Brennecke's beach and then more and more wonderful beaches after that. I actually liked the walk to the beach for a little exercise. The house was very clean....except for the couches. The couches here were SO bad. I cringed every time I sat on them. And the fact that they were dirty could be remedied by putting a towel on them but they were also the most uncomfortable couches I've ever sat on. Absolutely no support. Of course we are there for the beaches but it's nice to relax at the end of the day. The kitchen was awesome and the view from the dining table was fabulous. Kitchen was very well supplied. Lots of great beach toys and beach towels were in the house.

The thing I have to say that was a real highlight about the house was the property management. They didn't bug us once while we were there but were quick to answer any questions and help us out from day 1 of planning the trip to after I got home and realized I left my hair dryer and flat iron there. They found it and shipped it back to me! And the house was super clean (except for the couches) and organized when we got there.

The other downfall was how close the neighbors are. You could hear the next door neighbors' conversation word for word. I felt like we were sharing a living room with the neighbors across the sidewalk. Their big window looked right into our big window.

For the most part we ignored all of these minor issues and had a wonderful time. I don't know if we would stay at Kahele Kai again but the next time we go to Poipu we will definitely book with Poipu365!"

"Great Home for three Couples
We were very saisfied with this rental in Poipu. We were three couples and the three bedrooms and three baths gave each couple plenty of privacy while the size of the house also gave us plenty of individual space. While the living room couches had seen better days they were clean and not shabby at least. The beds in the bottom bedroom were comfortable but were the least attractive of the three bedrooms. The shower head on the bottom bedoom could certainly be improved for a nominal price. The kitchen was quite new and very attractive. All in all we were very pleased with the rental."

"Perfect in Every Way
Choosing a vacation rental on Kauai came with many VRBO listings. We are happy to say we made the best choice. The house was impeccably clean, nicely laid out for our large family and a short walk to 2 beautiful beaches. The location was perfect for travel to Lihue, the Smith family Luau and the NaPali coast cruise. Wonderful memories to bring back home. "

"House on Nalo Road
The refrigerator in the main kitchen needs to be replaced. We had to keep almost all of our food in the downstairs refrigerator."
Aug 06, 2013 - , Leavenworth, WA

"A great place for a vacation
The place was perfect for us. We had 3 couples and there was plenty of space for all of us. It was clean with spacious rooms and a kitchen that was easy to cook in. It's just a short walk to a sandy beach for snorkeling for turtles, boogie boarding or just relaxing. We definitely enjoyed out stay."
Jul 16, 2013 - Jeffrey S. M., Goleta, CA

"All the Comforts of Home Next to the Beach
The location couldn't have been better, just steps to all the beaches in Poipu. Me, my husband, and my young daughter stayed in the rooms upstairs while my in-laws stayed in the downstairs area and it was absolutely perfect for all of us. Thank you for the best grill I've ever used at a vacation rental! Kahele Kai was the perfect basecamp for all our Hawaiian adventures, and I hope we get a chance to return someday."

"A fantastic house in a dreamy location!
What an incredible place! Our family of 5 along with 2 grandparents stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed the home and the location. The home was very spacious, the lanai had an ocean view and was perfect for our meals. The master bedroom was luxurious with lots of space, a comfortable bed, and a wonderful bathroom. The outdoor grill was great and the kitchen was well appointed and had plenty of space for multiple chefs. The outdoor shower/rinse off station was THE BEST thing! It truly kept lots of sand out of the house. We loved the close proximity to the beach - very easy stroll, even with a 2 year old. The home was very well ventilated and stayed cool with the windows open and the ceiling fans circulating the wonderful tropical air. One suggestion - a small floor rug or mat at the bottom of the stairs would make a safer last step. My mom took quite a spill on the wet tile and twisted her back, which put a bit of a damper on the rest of her vacation and physical activity. Overall, this was a wonderful place to stay and we would LOVE to come back to this beautiful home."

"Spring Break 2013
A great family vacation. A perfect jumping off place for various adventures throughout Kauai. Loved the separate living spaces. Only complaints were multiple burned out light bulbs, propane BBQ was difficult to start and a couple of nights with noisy neighbors (wedding party). Loved the view of Brenneke's beach. Nice and roomy home."

"Perfect in Poipu
What a great home! Perfect location...Kahele Kai had everything we needed. Vicki and Christine at Poipu 365 are excellent to deal with. Thanks to Aerica and her team for the mid-stay clean...the house was spotless! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for the perfect vacation in Kauai! Until next year......."

"Great Property for Families with young children
Our stay at Kahele Kai was wonderful and worked perfect for our family! We were pleasantly surprised by the array of items left by others for our use; beach toys for the babies, boards, games, beach towels, umbrellas and chairs. Wow! We in turn left a Pak-n-Play (cheaper to buy than rent for two weeks) for future guests.

We wish to thank Vicky and Christine at Poipu365 for their quick response in replacing a very tired and worn out grill as that was our main cooking utensil! Your services and property will come highly recommended and we will definitely be in contact for future trips to your beautiful island.

"Great location, great house
As advertised, the house was very convenient to beaches and activities. Lovely interior, well-furnished."
Jul 30, 2012 - Kristin S.

"Wonderful Stay at Kahele Kai!
My family stayed in the master bedroom and set up a pack ‘n play for my son and still had plenty of room. The master bathroom was very clean and spacious. My sister's family stayed in the studio downstairs where there was a queen and a twin bed. The bathroom is just outside of the bedroom and the main living area had a couch, TV, stereo and kitchenette. There is an additional bedroom upstairs with two twin beds and another full bathroom upstairs just outside of the bedroom.

The kitchen, living and dining areas were very spacious and airy and have a partial ocean view. We cooked breakfast each morning and enjoyed a lot of snacks at the house, which was much easier than dining out each meal with toddlers. We also had evening cocktails on the lanai after our kids went to sleep… a very relaxing way to end the day.

The house was very quiet and I did not hear street noise while we were there. The ocean was close enough to hear when the house was quiet, but not so loud that it kept my son or I awake. I mentioned the waves to my husband on our first night there, but he hadn’t even noticed the sound. The only other noise was from the roosters, but they are all over the island, so I think you’d hear them no matter where you stayed.

When I contacted Vicki or Stacie at Poipu 365, responses were prompt and very friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Kahele Kai to friends or family and look forward to staying there again in the future."

"Kauai Wedding Week
As parents of the groom, we enjoyed our stay even more than we had expected. The beach house was relaxing even though we had a lot of people, the beach was very close, with sea turtles and monk seals. Red-crested cardinals and shama thrushes were tame in the yard. The people of Kauai were gracious and happy in restaurants, shops and gas stations."

"bad advertisement
The staff was good until I had an issue. Christine told me she would call me back and never did. The beds were listed inaccurately and I was basically told that 'this is how it is' 2 twin beds were pushed together to make a king bed and an airbed was given to us instead of one of the twin beds we were supposed to receieve. the rest of the home was in good shape with snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and a full kitchen. The location was also good. Directions from the staff were easy to understand as far as location, rules, and how to get the keys out."

"Paradise in Poipu
We had a terific vacation experiece. The house was very well appointed from all aspects and descibed to a tee what to expect. Our experience insures we will consider Poipu 365 as or first stop when shooping for our next visit to beautiful Kauai"

"Unprofessionalism, Discrimination, and non-operational appliances
While the unit was well maintained, the management company was horrible. Vicky is very unprofessional and nosey! On the second day of our stay, Vicky came to the house to discuss plastic chairs that were stacked outside near the garage, due to a neighbor’s complaint. This was very disturbing, and made our stay in the home VERY uncomfortable knowing that the mere sight of chairs could have an effect on our accommodations. We felt as if we were being watched and felt much discriminated against. I had also called Vicky to inform her that the following items were not operating appropriately: TV in the upstairs common area, the telephone, and the oven. She informed me that the repair man would be coming and would also be bringing propane for the BBQ. All these items were not completed until late Friday afternoon!! When the repair man left, the TV and the telephone still were not fixed and the he had noticed the stove top had been crack prior to our arrival and needed to be replaced. These items not working appropriately hampered our stay traumatically! I felt ignored and mistreated!!
Then to add to what should have been a relaxing stay, Vicky showed up on Sunday, saying “you’re supposed to check out this morning we have another check-in”. This was very awkward and unprofessional. She had not checked with her office and was unaware that we had extended our stay until Monday shortly after we had booked the home in September.
We were very unsatisfied and would like action to be taken so that another family will not have to deal with unprofessionalism, discrimination, and non-operational appliances.
