The upper floor has great room with vaulted, wood-inlaid ceilings and stone floors throughout the upper dining, kitchen, and living areas. The great room has glass doors that recess completely into the walls, opening to the upper covered lanai from which you enjoy the built-in BBQ, tradewinds and wide-open ocean and golf course, sunrise and sunset views. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a Wolf gas range and mountain views. The upper master King suite has vaulted, wood-inlaid ceilings and golf, sunset and ocean views.The spacious master bath includes a soaking tub, stone-lined walk-in shower and walk-in closet.

The lower floor has a second complete master suite and bath, a third bedroom with two twins and a third full bath. There is also an open lower media area. All lower rooms open to the private pool, spa and covered lower lanai with seating.

The home is a mile from the beach and 1.25 mile to Poipu beach; beach chairs, towels and umbrellas are provided for beach comfort. Less than a mile from the house is the Poipu Shopping Village, which has island-theme boutiques and galleries, a Starbuck's Coffee; Keoki's Paradise, a fun island/tiki torch garden restaurant; art galleries; a general store with many basic groceries and island items such as grass mats and Kona coffee, the addictive Puka Dog stand with its fresh lemonade; Kauai-made gelato shop; surfing clothing stores and free Hula shows on a shaded, outdoor stage put on by the local hula school. The luxe Shops at Kukui'ula is a mile and a half away and has a Roy's and Merriman's Restaurants, a Tommy Bahama as well as many boutiques and restaurants and live music and gourmet market events every week.

Hale Nene Poipu is named for the wild, Hawaiian geese that gather near the lake. The over 3000 sq ft house is particularly airy and light and sits on the gentle greens of the Kiahuna golf course. The house faces South-West toward the ocean and sunsets so the evening light can extend into the living area. The home is on the Kiahuna golf course, designed Robert Trent Jones Jr. and one of eight world-class courses on Kauai.

About the Owner

We are working professionals who live in Anchorage, Alaska. After 20 years of camping and squeezing into a condo on Kauai, we bought Hale Nene Poipu as our vacation home to escape the cold Alaska winter and to enjoy Kauai in a more spacious, private and luxurious setting. We have two boys who spend hours in the pool and continue their boogie boarding and snorkeling adventures around the Poipu area. We like to be busy, but also appreciate privacy and the an expansive, peaceful view, so this property really appealed to us. On-island, we are fortunate to work with a tight-knit group of trusted tradespeople who take excellent care of our home and our guests. Aloha!

Comment. 10/27/2014

We've had a heavenly time here, your home was very comfortable and thank you for your helpful suggestions and advice. We certainly had all the comforts of home and then some; we all want an instant boiling water tap in our kitchens now! My only regret is that we didn't take advantage of playing the golf course we woke up to every morning. Hope the golfers didn't mind the 'gallery' as we enjoyed our morning coffee!

Can't wait to come again!

All the best,

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!

Phenomenal Rental Home

  • 5 of 5
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!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
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.

Best vacation home ever

  • 5 of 5
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.

From the Owner

Kauai is well-known for it's tropical beauty; one friend noted it was like a theme park - with fragrant flowers in the breeze, rainbows, and white sand beaches. It is also a mellow island with a distinct tropical feel, but with plenty of restaurants, shopping, snorkeling, hiking and biking to keep us busy. Hale Nene Poipu appealed to us because we like to be very active and all our favorite beaches, walking and biking are right out our door. However, we also like to have a peaceful refuge and the house, with its huge views and outdoor/indoor living areas, is relaxed and private.
