This house could be much nicer if maintained better

This house is located in an excellent location halfway between Shipwreck Beach and Brennecke's Beach. While the house in general was nice and the remodel of the kitchen and master bedroom were nice, there were some long-term maintenance issues which should be addressed. Several of the walls throughout the house and the ceiling downstairs needed to be repainted. The baseboards and stairway banister were dirty. A window frame in the master bathroom was broken and falling apart. The living room furniture was old and ratty and falling apart. The outside of the refrigerator was gross, and ...

We loved our stay in Hale Pono Poipu, it was absolutely amazing! The kitchen is big, the house is clean and has alote of space. We were two families and it was just perfect. We could walk to the beach, had everything we needed and even more! We ran out of gaz for the BBQ and it was filled within the day! I would recommend this house to anyone and I hope to come back as soon as possible!

We stayed in the above home for 4 nights, and given the time of year and accommodations of providing for 3 of us, the home met our basic needs. The house is functionally furnished, with decor designed for sustaining long term minimal wear and tear. The single standout deterrent to our stay was the 4 page list of house rules. I have been to Poipu in various living capacities and have to say that either the owners perhaps previously experienced some serious damage, or they are not, despite the rewards as beneficiaries of ownership, entirely comfortable with renting their home. As a homeo...

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this 3 bedroom / 3 bath vacation home in Poipu for 4 adults and 1 teenager. It has plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was a nice size, great for cooking in. The living room and Lanai have an awesome view of the ocean. The upper bedroom/bathroom and one of the downstair bedroom/bathroom have been remodeled; great rooms. However the last bedroom/bathroom has not been remodel and the toilet room smells like urine. The bedroom smelled moldy ( I have a sensitive nose). The vacation home company was responsive when I reported this issue and they se...

We booked this home as a last minute option for our family to stay as opposed to staying at the Grand Hyatt next door as my husband had a conference there. I am so glad we stayed in the Hale Pono home and it happened to be available for our stay. It was nice and clean and was spacious for our family of 4 to have more room and spread out as opposed to a hotel room. The home was well stocked in the kitchen as well as lots of beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, beach toys, etc. There is no AC but it did get cool at night and felt very comfortable - a nice breeze would come through and we ...

This was a great house for our 3 night stay on Kauai. We loved the location, the house met and exceeded all expectations, the balcony off the kitchen was a great space for enjoying the sunrise with a cup of coffee and the property managers responded to questions promptly. The extra supplies of beach gear was very much appreciated. I would certainly recommend this house and would stay here again!

This is a great house, so I'll start with the good. It's in a great location with an easy 10 min walk to Hyatt/Shipwrecks beach and the pool. Just a few minutes past the pool to Poipu beach. There is a lot of beach stuff in the garage and nice, big beach towels to use. Some toiletries are provided along with hand and dish soap, laundry detergent, paper towels, etc. The upstairs can get warm on hot days, but there are ceiling fans and tower fans provided too. The house was immaculate. All that said, here are our few complaints about the place, that could easily be fixed. -One room need...

We very much enjoyed our two-week home in Poipu. It was comfortable, well-equipped, three bedrooms (all with their own bathrooms and showers), a large modern kitchen with everything we needed (including a nice stash of spices and basic kitchen essentials), and a washer/dryer. Unlike many condos we've stayed in, they even provided dish soap, paper towels, and laundry soap. They also have all the beach equipment you could possibly wish for in the garage and provide large beach towels (so you don't have to pack them). The one thing we could have asked for would be air conditioning as it wa...

The home was so beautiful and the owners pay so much attention to detail. There is literally everything you need in the home. The location is good, in walking distance to the ocean front, although you need to walk a little farther to reach an ocean you can actually swim in. Poipu shopping village is very close and has a lot of shops and restaurants. The only downside is that the bedrooms downstairs don't have a lot of windows and it gets very hot and stuffy. There are ceiling fans and a floor fan but it still isn't enough. The upstairs bedroom had a nice breeze at night. The mattresses were...

Our family of eight stayed here for a week. It was fantastic! The home is very comfortable and enjoyable to stay in. Indoors, it is clean, attractively painted and decorated, and well-stocked with nice dishes, silverware and appliances. Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own shower, double sinks, and toilet. There are ceiling fans and vented windows that allow a nice breeze to flow throughout the upstairs, so there really is no need for air conditioning. Frankly, we liked the natural cooling better than A/C. Outdoors, the yard is large and private, with a hammock that the kids loved! There are ...

We did not want to leave Hale Pono! The location was within easy walking distance from Shipwreck Beach and Poipu Beach. On Poipu Beach, we had a monk seal and a huge turtle come up on land to sun within 20 yards of where we were sitting. Listening to the ocean and palm trees swaying at night were so very peaceful. The house was stocked with any need you can imagine, plus more! Great place, wonderful stay, would definitely recommend this home and hope to stay here again. Thank you for a great stay!
