There are picnic tables, play equipment, showers, restrooms, even a convenience store and restaurant across the street.
Poipu Beach offers a sheltered cove called "Baby Beach" where toddlers play in the sand and splash in the shallow waters. A few steps away in the clear warm water, colorful tropical fish swim beneath as you just feet from the shore. The calm waters and gentle waves are enjoyed by swimmers of all capabilities. Experienced surfers can catch large-breaking waves further out beyond the reef. Brennecke Beach, at the east end of the park, is renowned for body surfing and boogie boarding.
If you bring your camera you may be able to capture on film a Monk Seal sleeping off a meal on the beach. Seals are protected so don't approach too closely.
Within a 2 mile radius of the house you will find two golf courses, some of Kauai's finest restaurants and charming island boutiques. When you venture beyond Poipu you will find a virtual paradise of activities: helicopter tours, horseback riding, river and ocean kayaking, whale-watching, botanical garden tours and much more, including the spectacular NaPali Coast and the Waimea Canyon (Grand Canyon of the Pacific).

The house was set up perfectly to accommodate five adults and one toddler. We appreciated and enjoyed the books in the house, the beach gear, the high chair, Pak n' Play, and the on-site laundry facilities. My daughter loved walking through the gardens and relaxing in the evenings in the living room with her grandparents. We felt at home, so the house was an important part of a very special family trip. Many of our outings were recommended in the Cherry's blog or emails, so they contributed to essentially all our memories (except maybe my daughter's enthusiasm for chasing chickens found almost everywhere on the island). The guest book includes entries from families who have returned year after year. I would feel blessed to be able to repeat our visit to their home.

Wonderful Poipu Home for Vacation
Left on 05/06/2014 for a stay in April 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewer
The home was perfect for 3 generations; toddlers to g-parents. Easy walking distance to beach. We especially loved all the beach gear in the garage: fins, bogie boards, chairs, sand toys, towels. Kitchen was like walking into my own home. Everything was wonderful. The layout was even larger than depicted in photos.

We stayed here for a week in February 2014 with another family. The home accommodated 4 adults and 3 kids with plenty of room to spare. It was so well furnished for a beach vacation--bikes, helmets, numerous beach toys/mats/towels. The kitchen was perfect for feeding a group of people. It was very quiet and peaceful with views of a farm with horses and a back patio area perfect for relaxing. Having Netflix and wifi added to the comforts of home. Poipu Beach was less than a mile away. A huge thumbs up!
Beautiful and Spacious Home with Incredible Hosts!

I stayed at this property with nine of my coworkers and there was more than enough room for us and our belongings. The location was perfect and near to beaches, surfing, shopping, dining, Old Koloa Town, and all of the gorgeous natural activities Kauai has to offer. The property was extremely clean and well-maintained and the owners were fantastic and responded quickly from start to end. Definitely check out Kalapaki Joe's in Poipu for an awesome happy hour and great eats! I recommend this property to absolutely anyone.

This home was just a wonderful fit for our family of ten. The owners of the home had thought of everything to make our stay so enjoyable with complete explanations of what was expected of us and how to use certain amenities provided to us. It was so nice to have coolers, beach chairs, beach toys, bikes, boogie boards, etc for us to use. The washer and dryer was so appreciated. We definitely would stay here again.

Kauai is our favoite island and we had the grandest vacation at the ala Muku house. The 4 bedrooms were adequate for our family of 11 (7 adults, 2 kids, and 2 babies). The kitchen was well equipped, we used the barbecue grill a lot, the location was perfect (shortest distance to everything - beaches, restaurants, shopping villages), and the availability of the bikes was an added plus. We would definitely recommend it to family and friends, and certainly consider it for our next vacation. Thank you, Juliana, for being the perfect host. Mahalo.

This is a delightful, cozy, and spacious home that was perfect for our family party of 8. It has a large kitchen with everything one needs, and a very nice deck with private front and side yards to enjoy the beautiful foliage and flowers all around. Beach towels and water sport items very available to use also. It is located a pleasant walk or short drive from the Poipu Beach areas.

We stayed here with 8 adults and 1 infant. Jim and Juliana prepared everything before our arrival and it was perfect! Large kitchen and dining room easily accomodated our group, and the location was close enough to the beach for easy access, but not so close we were overrun by tourists. It felt like an authentic Kuaui experience!
Amenities were exactly as described and super helpful!
If we ever go back to Hawaii, we'll be sure to stay here again!

Excellent accomodation in a great location away from usual tourist areas. Everything provided for beach and snorkeling use as well as house needs.Great for overseas visitors like us. Owners friendly, helpful but not intrusive.
Great base for exploring Kauai and for relaxing.
Would recommend a car to get around the island. We hired and returned to Lihue airport and drove with no issues, even though wrong side of road for us!

We really enjoyed our stay at the ala Muku Home in Poipu, Kauai. We were traveling with our teenage kids and another couple so we needed a place that we could all spread out. This place was fabulous and provided just what we were looking for! The layout was great; we had our bedrooms on one floor and the second master bedroom was upstairs at the other end of the house with plenty of privacy for the other couple. There was ample space when we were all together and all the rooms were very comfortable & spacious.
The house is in a quiet neighborhood that is about a 2-minute drive or 10-15 minute walk to Poipu Beach. The kitchen was stocked with everything you might need to cook your meals and the grocery store was just a short drive away. They had bikes for use and about 10 different sets of snorkels, which saved additional money. We were able to find a set that fit everyone. They had plenty of extra towels for the beach, along with umbrellas, floaties and a cooler. Everything is there that you would need for a day at the beach. And the laundry area in the garage was great for drying out wet items and washing as needed.
It was lovely to come back from our adventures each day to unwind and relax in this comfortable home away from home. Juliana & Jim were very helpful and easy to work with on the rental. We had a wonderful trip and would highly recommend this house for large families or groups vacationing on Kauai!

We (all 9 of us) all loved our stay at this spacious and beautifully decorated home, a two minute ride to Poipu beach by car or on one of the six bikes available. The house had everything from a well stocked kitchen to a table we could all sit around at once to tons of beach equipment from chldren's sand toys to boggie boards and beach towels and chairs. The beach was great, with some of the best snorkeling on the island. Shops and stores were nearby in every direction. The owners were very professional and responsive to us.

This was the perfect place for our whole family. There was more than enough room for all of us. We loved the fully stocked kitchen to prepare our gourmet meals and then share them together around the dinning room table. We would love to come back, thanks!

I recently stayed 10 days here with my mom and dad, sister, my husband and our 3 kids. We loved everything about this home from day 1! It was super clean, beautiful and extremely spacious. One of our favorite things were all the ammentities like the washer and dryer, all the beach/baby gear, the bikes and the fully equiped kitchen :) The neighborhood was clean and the neighbors were pleasant, and it was awesome being only minutes from Poipu Beach and a great kiddy play area! The owners were super nice and helpful and the backyard/seating area was beautiful-it had 2 lounge chairs tucked away behind the house by the master bedroom's backdoor that was so nice to just relax in in the evenings :) The home is also close to 2 nice shopping malls, old Koloa town, the spouting horn and botanical gardens and more! We loved everything!

We stayed for a week in this great house. There were five of us, and the house was large enough for us to be very comfortable. Everyone kept saying how much nicer it was to be staying in a house, compared to a hotel, or even a condo. The neighborhood was quiet and very centrally located, for our purposes. The kitchen was especially nice, with all the conveniences and appliances you could want. The wi-fi was fast and worked great for all three of the computers we had with us. The beach equipment was used and appreciated. The description is accurate and I can't really think of any criticism at all - it was just a wonderful place to be based for our first visit to Kauai. We happened to be there at Halloween, and we had been warned by the owners that Halloween is a big holiday in Hawaii. We had a great time sitting on the porch and handing out candy (thank you Costco!) to over 250 trick or treaters.
There were eight of us that stayed here for a week. The house is exactly what is advertised. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beach accessories were wonderful to have on hand, and we even used the bikes that were available. The beach really is only two minutes away by car. We had two small children with us, and the beach nearby was wonderful for the whole family. The house was emaculate when we arrived. Jim and Julianna were wonderful to answer questions that we had, and they certainly made us feel welcomed. I would high recommend this to anyone traveling to Kauai.
A lovely jewel retreat for the Martz Family(10) from Wichita,ks

We had a remarkable time at this Kauai retreat and we found this place just as the photos and listed information are described on the website - the stay was perfect for our family of 10, 4 families including 2 children and we had plenty of room. We especially enjoyed the dinning room set up that could handle all of us comfortably and the nice spacious kitchen for preparing meals. Really enjoyed the front deck and the back yard that are well landscaped and perfect for taking a break or eating a snack. The amenities of washer/dryer, bikes, and beach stuff also made our stay so comfortable and convenient as we had many trips to the beach - just a short walk or ride, and then easy clean-up when we returned. We had 7 days and wish we could have had several more days to explore all that is in close proximity to this lovely home. We would love to return to this part of the island and would definitely recommend this to families! Very clean and well maintained property!

Kauai is beautiful! Our stay at Jim and Juliana's home was wonderful. The home on a quiet cul-de-sac was perfect for our family vacation. The master suite on the main floor was perfect for my son, his wife and two children with a king bed and day bed in the same suite. My eighty year old mother enjoyed the "hula" bedroom, which was conveniently right next to the main bathroom. My 23 year old son and my brother were buddies in another bedroom which had twin beds. I loved the upstairs master suite with my own king bed and personal bathroom. It was great! You can easily prepare family meals in the huge kitchen, complete with up to date appliances...if you like coffee, there are three coffee pots! A large dining room table offers a great place to dine, or play board games/ cards later in the evening. The home is conveniently located 1/2 mile from Poipu beach. Easy walk. The roosters are plentiful, and we were amused by the "rooster relief" ear plugs left on the night stands beside each bed. :) Nice touch! The living room was large and comfortable, with two love seats and a sofa, along with TV, DVD and CD player. The garage was easily accessible with a convenient washer and dryer, six bicycles for guest use, boogie boards, and an array of beach toys, beach towels, beach mats, coolers, etc. This place left you wanting for nothing! The onsite owners are very available, should you need anything. Another nice touch was the offer of fresh bananas and limes which grow on the property. My daughter-in-law made a limeade, from the fresh limes, that was enjoyed. I was a little leery about traveling across the country with seven others, to stay in a home that I had never seen, (other than photos) that I had rented online. Needless to say, once we arrived, all of my fears were replaced by comfort, cleanliness and excitement of our week ahead in beautiful Kauai. Thank you, Juliana and Jim for our wonderful place to stay!!
