This house was awesome! The 3 bedroom/3 bath house accommodated 6 of us, and was very comfortable. It was our home for 9 nine days. The location was ideal. We walked to Poipu Beach and to Brenneke's Restaurant, and 5 minute drive to Poipu Golf Course. Every amenity was provided including beach gear, BBQ (which we did one night), washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, and outdoor shower to wash off the sand. The activities we did: golfing, beach (Poipu, Aliomanu, Anahola, Mahaulepu, Sheraton Hotel beach), fishing, zodiac boat trip to Na Pali Coast, kayaking/paddle boarding up the Wailua River, Luau Kalamaku, more golf and more beach. Chris also kept us informed on Hurricane Hector, which ended up missing the islands.
Again, this house is amazing! We will definitely visit and stay here again.
Mahalo to Chris and his team!!
This beach house in Poipu was perfect for my husband and I and our friends. The location is great- very close to a beach that has a small amount of sand area and a short walk to a large park/beach area that has facilities and a place to pick up food and drinks on the way.
The house has all the amenities one needs-- fully stocked kitchen, beach supplies (chairs, towels, scuba gear, etc.,) lots of bath towels, linen, laundry room with supplies, TV, games and books.
The house has 2 stories. The 1st floor is a separate living space with 1 bedroom and the upstairs has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living area and lanai. The view from the lanai is a beautiful ocean view and was a great place to have breakfast and/or drinks before dinner. There is AC but it was totally unnecessary due to the constant breeze from the trade winds. We almost did not need to use the ceiling fans even at night. The beds were very comfortable and the shower had great pressure. There is a car port under the lanai for convenient parking. The house is surrounded by tall trees/bushes which makes it private (since the homes there are pretty close together) and except for the wild roosters of Kauai (lol) it was pretty quiet.
One of the best features of this house is not something you will find in it. It is the owners. Chris and Teresa are exceptionally nice to deal with. They were very responsive to my many questions before coming to Kauai and were so thoughtful and accommodating once we arrived. They go above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect-- and it was.
We have stayed at Aikane Kauai four times over the past 10 years or so, we even used it as a base for our granddaughter's wedding and we cannot recommend it more highly. Chris is the perfect host and always attends to our needs. The house is close to the beach, off the main road so is very quiet, there are ocean views from the upstairs lanai and it is very well equipped with everything guests need for recreation and day to day living. This is the first house we try to book when we plan our visits to Kauai.
We just returned from our second stay & have already booked for next year. Aikane house has everything you need for a perfect vacation, including a well-supplied kitchen, lots of beach equipment, AC in all 3 bedrooms and great Wi-Fi. With 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms upstairs, there was plenty of room and privacy for 2 couples. Chris was easy to work with and always responded immediately. Loved the new microwave, dishwasher & lanai chairs which were new since last year. Great house, great location.
I was so happy with this rental! My husband, our two kids (6 & 8), and my mom stayed here toward the beginning of July and I can't say enough good things.
I initially chose this rental because it met criteria I was looking for: king-sized master, air conditioning (which we never used), and a third bedroom for my mom. The layout turned out to be perfect. The main living area is on the second floor to take advantage of the view, but Mom had a bedroom, bath, and sitting area all to herself on the ground floor. She was free to spend time with us or take a little break whenever she needed it.
There is an ocean view from the lanai and we started every day with a quiet hour or two just sitting out there taking it all in. It was such a relaxing way to begin the day. The house is surrounded by trees in such a way that you are blocked from the neighbors and the street, so the ocean is really your view. (You can still hear sounds though.)
We also made good use of the kitchen (I recommend stopping at Safeway on the way in) and the laundry (we packed light and the laundry was super-useful). In addition, we appreciated all of the beach toys tucked into the laundry room. Really, they've thought about everything! And the owners could not be more friendly or responsive!
As a tiny advisement, we did see a few creepy crawlies. This did not detract from my review because, well, you're on a tropical island, that's just the way it is! The home was very clean. You can tell that it is well-cared for and their housekeeping did a great job.
Bottom line: we would absolutely stay here again!
