Our vacation home is located on the sunny side of the island and is centrally located giving you quick access to several beaches in the neighborhood, beautiful coastal walks along the nearby wild Mahaluepu Coastline with secluded beaches just east of the house, and shopping and dining nearby. The house is on a quiet side street. The nearby beaches offer great swimming and snorkeling even in the winter when Hawaii's famously large surf rolls in to the north and west coasts. The north shore is an hour to the east and north and the spectacular vistas of Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park are an hour in the opposite direction.
How sunny is Poipu? Very! Our home has hot water AND electricity provided by the abundant sun. Utility back-up is seamless when required.
Aikane Kauai is an excellent choice for a family vacation. Our home is one of the closest to Poipu Beach Park with its protected lagoon, wide open grassy areas and playground equipment over a spongy ground surface. Poipu is truly one of the best beaches anywhere. The shallow sandy lagoon is excellent. Also consider the superb snorkeling in the adjacent bay, body surfing and boogie boarding at Brennecke's Beach, and board surfing on the outer reefs.
Families are welcome at Aikane Kauai. We are mindful of the creativity and natural inquisitiveness of children so parents can have a relaxing time. The house is equipped with a baby gate for the stairs, a high chair, day crib, board games and a collection of Disney videos. Best of all there is no need to pile into a car, drive, look for parking, etc. Just walk around the corner to the beach.
Travel Light. No need to rent, buy or pack gear. The house comes equipped with about everything you might want for the beach including masks, snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, cooler and sand toys.

I had a wonderful stay at aikane Kauai. Everything I wanted was at my fingertips and with the beach only half a block away, it's a perfect vacation spot. Feeling the ocean breeze in the morning and at night over dinner on the lanai was lovely. I felt right at home. I've already referred a number of other people!

Aloha, our vacation stay at Poipu Beach began perfectly with a welcoming personalised greeting on the front door and Hawaiian chocolates (now my favourites). The house is fantastic - spacious, very comfortable, full of all the things you require on a tropical holiday far away from home - snorkelling gear, internet, phone, a kitchen well-stocked with utensils. Chris has thought of everything you could need. If you are lucky on your visit there could be tropical fruits ripe for the picking. The house is located in a great position - walking distance from swimming, snorkelling and surfing. On our holiday, there was a turtle swimming out in the bay every day! Our stay at Chris's home on the beautiful island of Kauai was a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. I would thoroughly recommend a stay in Chris's home at Poipu Beach.

This was our 4th visit to Kauai and our second stay at aikane Kauai and it could not have been better. We chose to stay in this house for a second time because of its location and the service that we have received from Chris. It started as a holiday and ended as a wedding when our granddaughter chose to wed on Brennecke's Beach. This house and its neighbour became the focal point for family and friends to gather, discuss, plot and plan, and was instrumental in making the wedding a success. Everything we needed for a perfect holiday was there, great bedrooms and shower facilities, fully equipped kitchen, flat-screen TV and DVD plus all the snorkelling, boogie boarding, picnic equipment that a large party needs. In our opinion this house, its location, the facilities it offers plus the personal service makes it the only place we want to stay when we return - we will even change our vacation dates to be in this house. Thanks again Chris for giving us such a great holiday and we will be back!
