Ocean view rental house, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 2-7, A/C

Welcome to our beach house! Aikane Kauai is is among the handful of homes closest to Poipu and Brenneckes Beaches and provides quality and convenience in island style comfort.. Come see for yourself why this is a Lonely Planet Editor's Pick.

Aikane is Hawaiian for 'friendly' or 'house sharing' which best describes this delightful beach house. Enjoy the convenience of staying so close to several great sandy beaches. No need to drive, just walk out the front door past 2 houses to the ocean then along the coast past 3 more homes to the first of a string of beaches. Morning and sunset walks from the house along the coast are remarkable!

We outfitted our home with about everything you may want including boogie boards, masks, snorkels, coolers, beach umbrellas, HDTV, DVD, ipod dock, cable, Kauai guide books, free WiFi, free local call and lots more. We hope you will feel right at home.

Aikane Kauai vacation home is located on the sunnier 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 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 the famously large surf rolls in to the north coast. The north shore is an hour to the east and north and remote beaches and spectacular vistas and hiking in Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park to the west and north in the opposite direction.

Poipu is very sunny. Hot water AND electricity are provided by roof top panels by the abundant sun. Utility back-up is seamless if required.

You are welcome to phone, email or text us anytime for ideas and suggestions on how to get the most out of your stay. As owners/managers and a life-long Kauai resident, we have the experience and incentive to be sure you have a great time on Kauai. We are members of the Poipu Beach Resort Association and Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau. Here it is; great location, amenities and value and locally owned and managed.

We had a wonderful week here. It was so relaxing and renewing-much needed. We loved hiking, exploring the different beaches, and the peaceful setting. The home was great, having everything we needed and a fantastic location. We would love to come back.

Excellent, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5
Our expectations were exceeded; this is a perfect place for a family, very close to Poipu Beach and Koloa. We were given excellent advice about places to visit, and the house had everything one could imagine - even snorkeling and beach gear. We stayed two weeks, and everyone, from several generations, agreed that it was perfect. It's very close to the beach, and the kids went out every night to watch the stars. The beach itself is visible from the lanai, and we really appreciated that and all that Chris and his wife Theresa did for us, even installing a new dishwasher. It's just about perfect, and I'd return in a heartbeat.

Ideal vacation home for a family.

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for a week in this wonderful property for our 40th Anniversary Celebration. We were with our daughter, son and daughter-in-law and thier new little baby. The house accomodated us very well and the downstairs was ideal as a quiet place for the baby. The accomodations were wonderful with great facilities.

The location was ideal with quick access to the beach for fun water activites. It was also a good home base for all the island activities. I would recommend you stock up on food in Lehuie before heading to the house as the market selections close to the house are very limited.

Chris was a wondeful host and quickly took care of a couple of minor issues that came up during our stay. Thanks, Chris.

We all had great time and would love to come back to this property.

Great house at a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
Location was perfect, the house was clean, well maintained, and had everything we needed for seven of us. We even found equipment for snorkeling, surfing, sand toys, etc in the laundry room. The big plus was the outside shower with hot water.

Chris(owner manager) provided us with the layout of the house and accurate descriptions of the amenities ahead of time so we knew exactly what to expect. He also responded quickly to our questions and requests throughout our stay of five nights.

We enjoyed snorkeling, swimming, hiking and sometimes just sitting on the beach relaxing. The beach and restaurants are all within walking distance. The big shopping center (Poipu shopping village) is only five minutes drive away.

I wish to return someday and would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home was everything we hoped for and more. It was very clean when we arrived, and there was even a box of macadamia nut chocolates waiting for us. The beds were comfortable, and the space was great for our group of 6 (plenty of space for 7 too). We loved having the key in a lock box so that our teens could come and go with some flexibility, and the supply of beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkeling gear and ice chest helped us get maximum enjoyment from the nearby beach. We enjoyed watching the turtles nearby and explored the island using the map and guidebooks Chris had at the place. The owners brought us fresh bananas from the trees on the property and some starfruit too. When the propane tank ran out, Chris brought another right over and we still had our grilled chicken that night. If you are looking for a great place to stay for a reasonable price, this is it.
Side note: If you go to Kauai and you like Mexican food, be sure to try Tiki Tacos in Kapaa...the very best.

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
The place was perfect in every sense! It was private, Close to the beach (easy 5 min walk), Large, Everything was there, and it was Inexpensive (Please don't raise the price). We moved 1/2 way through on stay on Kauai but not because of the accomodations. I wish we could have stayed here our entire time!! This was not a luxurious place. Neither were we looking for luxurious. It was very comfortable. We would definately stay here again.

No plans to raise the price. As owner/manager, I decided to offer my home for a good value that people will want to return to and also recommend to their friends.

Brennecke's is better for body surfing and boarding.

From the Owner

Our vacation home is among the small group by the south shore beaches providing great year round water activities in the immediate area. The lush north shore is an hour or so away and our favorite secluded west side beaches and great hiking in the Waimea Canyon are about an hour in the opposite direction.
