We booked Hale Malanai in Poipu for 17 nights in August 2017. We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing stay and were impressed with the comfortable and comprehensive accommodations. Everything went smoothly thanks to the professional management of Poipu 365, as we were greeted with beautiful Hawaiian music, flowers and a welcome letter, and they were always very accessible for questions and advice. Hale Malanai was stocked with everything we needed to get started and experience our home away from home. The location is perfect for beaches, Waimea Canyon, restaurants, and shopping. All our in home meals were held out on the Lanai in the fresh open air, but we could have easily eaten inside around the spacious dining room. We were especially impressed with the kitchen gadgets and appointments, with everything a gourmet chef would require. We relished the beautiful ocean view, and retiring for the evening with the sound of waves lulling us to sleep.
From opening the door first time till closing it the whole family felt at home and fell in love with the place. Everything was just perfect and even better than advertised. We have been to many places but never found a kitchen so well equipped. A lanai all around the house for everyone to find his perfect spot any time of day or night. The whole interior was not anything like one usually finds in rental places, but had the personal touch and a love for detail of the owners - it was like coming to the house of friends who'd just left.
The little beach 10 m away is wonderful for little kids or just hanging out. The available beach equipment is not just some left over low quality stuff, but was actually of good quality, well maintained and contained everything you wish for. In walking distance are restaurants and coffee places. The residential neighborhood is really quite and beautiful, nothing like the other condominium-dominated area's of Poipu.
There is really nothing more we could have wished for!

Our first trip to Kauai was especially lovely due to the magnificent location of this delightful home. Located on a residential street directly across from a protected beach that is perfect for children and
adults alike. The house is complete with everything you could possibly need including a fully workable kitchen for those who enjoy cooking while away.
Wife and I spent 7 wonderful nights in Hale Malanai. It was perfect for the 2 of us. Very comfortable, furnished very well, and nice touches such as playlist loaded iPod, great beach chairs, beach towels and all kitchen utensils imaginable. Master bathroom is great! Only upgrades I would like to see are a larger screen TV and king bed. Counting days till we can return.
