Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Poipu - Ala Muku Home in Poipu

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Ala Muku - Hawaiian for 'rainbow fragment' - is a slice of paradise which offers you and your family and friends a relaxed, comfortable home base to enjoy and explore the beauty, activities, and natural wonders of Kauai. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood, this home is about a half mile to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke Beach.

Surrounded by lush tropical foliage, Ala Muku is a beautifully appointed, 2500 square foot home with festive island décor to enhance your stay in paradise. Relax and socialize in the many indoor and outdoor spaces. On the western front porch the palm fronds rustle in the gentle breeze of the Pacific trade winds. The plush sofas in the living room invite a nap or an opportunity to be entertained with music, cable TV, or DVD/VHS.

All your culinary needs can be met in the cook’s kitchen with its abundant counter space, up-to-date appliances and utensils. The dining room with atrium-like ambiance seats 10 people with additional dining for 4 in the kitchen nook. The back patio, shaded by the red-blooming Royal Poinciana with orchids blooming at its base, is a lovely spot for lounging and barbecuing. The garden setting is private, peaceful and exotic.

This Kauai home offers: A perfect setup for 2-4 couples vacationing together, a family reunion, or accommodations for wedding guests (sleeps up to 12).

Mala Pua- the 'garden' master suite is on the main level with a king bed and daybed, TV and DVD player. The spacious bathroom with a walk-in tiled shower offers lush garden views.

Kumulani- (base of sky) is the vaulted upstairs master suite that captures majestic mountain views and balcony sunsets. It features a king bed, TV and DVD player, bath with tiled shower, and plenty of room for relaxing. There is a daybed and three fold-out futons for optional sleeping space.

The Hula Room features a double bed with a whimsical hula décor theme.

The Blue Room is equipped with two twin beds that can be converted into a king-size bed to meet your needs. Please let us know how you want it set up before arrival.

Turn on your laptop anywhere on the property and enjoy high-speed wireless internet access. The home offers cable TV service plus live Netflix movie streaming.

The garage is equipped with laundry facilities, five bicycles and helmets, and beach gear. (This saves you $$ on recreational equipment fees.)

Pack up the beach equipment including mats, chairs, cooler, sand toys, and have a great day at the beach. Poipu Beach Park offers a large grassy area dotted with swaying coco palms. There are picnic tables, play equipment, showers, restrooms, even a convenience store and restaurant across the street.

Poipu Beach offers a sheltered cove called 'Baby Beach' where toddlers play in the sand and splash in the shallow waters. A few steps away in the clear warm water, colorful tropical fish swim beneath as you snorkel just feet from the shore. The calm waters and gentle waves are enjoyed by swimmers of all capabilities. Experienced surfers can catch large-breaking waves further out beyond the reef. Brennecke Beach, at the east end of the park, is renowned for body surfing and boogie boarding.

If you bring your camera you may be able to capture on film a Monk Seal sleeping off a meal on the beach. Seals are protected so don't approach too closely.

Within a two mile radius of the house you will find two golf courses, some of Kauai’s finest restaurants and charming island boutiques. When you venture beyond Poipu you will find a virtual paradise of activities: helicopter tours, horseback riding, river and ocean kayaking, whale-watching, botanical garden tours and much more, including many popular natural attractions such as the Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon (the Grand Canyon of the Pacific).

Why Ala Muku Vacation Rentals-Juliana Cherry chose Poipu

Kauai is truly the 'garden island', with its many beautiful water features and planned construction which virtually eliminates high rises. The warm sandy beaches and friendly local residents always make you feel comfortable away from home.

What makes this house unique

The Poipu area is on the warm sunny south side of Kauai. It is definitely a great destination with its many sandy beaches, boutiques, and wonderful restaurants. It is just a short drive to the airport, as well as the west, east and north sides of the island.

The Kauai Vacation of Your Dreams!

  • 5 out of 5
If you could combine the best qualities of a great hotel with expert concierge service, all the amenities of a long-term perfectly-equipped house rental in a quiet local Hawaiian neighborhood, and the comfort & charm of a quality B&B without pushy hosts close to the best beach on island, you'd have Ala Muku. My wife and I are long-time Kauai visitors, and we've seen it all, accommodations-wise. Once we stayed at Ala Muku, however, we looked at each other and said, "we're home," and have never looked back. Here's the deal: it's obvious the owners, who live discreetly on the property, have poured their love and dedication to hospitality into their offering. From every beach necessity and kitchen device known to man, bikes galore (talk about saving $$$!), and luxurious linens & furnishings, this is the best Kauai experience available. You get the chance to feel like you really live in Hawaii, and that's what we all dream of, right? We've stayed here with large family gatherings with plenty of room for all, and also enjoyed the quiet and greenery for just the two of us. The owners, Jim and Juliana, couldn't be more attentive, informative, or non-intrusive. They have become dear friends over the years. We count the days every year until our return. You will too!

Our 14 day stay in June 2013

  • 3 out of 5
We stayed at this property, on our first trip to Kauai, for 14 days last June, 2013. We were a group of 5, including my 70 year old mother-in-law. First, I will list the positives:
1- The proximity to Poipu Beach. It was a 2 minute drive or a 10-15. Minute walk.
2- The appliances were outstanding. The owners have done a terrific job at furnishing this home. Beds were comfortable and the home was large enough for 5 people.

3.- Nice Views from the upstairs bedroom.

4.- Bikes were available.

Now, the negatives:

1- The neighborhood is average at best.

2.- The home is shared with the owners. They basically live behind the house and above the garage where you cannot park your car. For us, that made it uncomfortable, due to the fact that they were always there, walking by the front of the house, or parking in the driveway, which is visible from the kitchen. Not one day went buy when they were not there. In fact, we had to share the washer and dryer with them, which we could not use at certain times because it would disturb them. Truth is, we felt uncomfortable with that setup, which we will never do again.

3. The bedroom doors are slotted. We understand that this helps circulation, but it kills privacy. From the master bedroom, you can hear everything that is going on in the kitchen. Two bedrooms share a hallway with a bathroom between them, and yes, the bathroom door is also slotted. Privacy-zero.

4.- The Wifi worked well until it didn't. The router is on their side of the house, so if they were not there, no wifi. It needs to be reset from their side.

5- Forget requesting a late checkout. When I first contacted the owner, she said it most likely would be fine, but as time drew near to our departure, she changed her tune. Flights leave Kauai between 10 and 11PM, so it makes for a long day after checkout time. There was nobody checking in for 3 days after our departure. The owner told us that the cleaning crew could not clean any other time, however, when I asked about possibly staying an extra night, all of a sudden, the owner told us that the cleaning crew could fit us in. We were bothered by this, since it gave the appearance that the cleaning crew was in charge and not the people who pay them. We did not stay the extra night.

6.- Owner was upset that we did not put the dishes away when we left. She showed up right at checkout time and we felt rushed. Better put the dishes away.

To summarize, this property was not for us.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that Jack and family had other than a wonderful time at our vacation home in Poipu. It has been a year since their stay, and would have been much better for us to know of problems or issues right away so they can be corrected immediately.
Since their stay the WIFI has been upgraded to a much faster and more reliable speed. The home is not shared with our guests, any more than a duplex or townhome is shared. Yes, we share the driveway with our guests and we live on the property. There is ample parking for three guest vehicles in the driveway. Yes, the washer and dryer is shared which is still much better than having to visit a Laundromat. The laundry hours are 8:00 AM until 9:00 PM. We are very concerned that our neighbors do not have to put up with the dryer noise after 9:00. We have louver doors throughout the house to allow the trade winds to ventilate through the home. This is a very common element in the tropics to avoid mold issues.
Late checkouts are a common request, we suggest to all of our guests that if a late checkout is needed please request this at the time of booking or shortly thereafter. We contract out our housekeeping to a private company and very often they are unable to change the schedule at the last minute. Such requests can sometimes be accommodated but not often.
In regard to our neighborhood, yes it is not a gated resort neighborhood. We know and respect our neighbors, many are close friends. They get up and go to work every morning. Many of the homes in our neighborhood are in the million dollar range. We love the closeness to the beach and the quiet seclusion of our little community, as do many of our repeat customers.
We try very hard to respond to our guests’ needs/problems immediately and that is what many of our past guests have viewed as a positive aspect of having the owners close by. As always we are grateful for any feedback from our renters so we can continue to offer exceptional service.

Beautiful home in tranquil neighborhood

  • 5 out of 5
The home was perfect for 3 generations; toddlers to g-parents. Easy walking distance to beach. We especially loved all the beach gear in the garage: fins, bogie boards, chairs, sand toys, towels. Kitchen was like walking into my own home. Everything was wonderful. The layout was even larger than than depicted in photos.

Ala Muku is a great place to stay!

  • 4 out of 5
Stayed at Ala Muku for 2 weeks with 5 other family members(all adults, over 40 yrs).
House was very nice and matched the listing description. Kitchen well equipped, very nice Weber BBQ on front deck, laundry facilities and all the toys we needed in garage(5 bicycles, lots of beach towels, boogie boards, fins, snorkels, kids beach toys, etc). House was 2 min. from Poipu Beach by car, 4 min. by bicycle(cross the road at end of street and take path through the empty lot) or 10 to 15 min. by foot. There was a problem with one of the bicycles not working. Jim replaced it with another bicycle and had the broken bike repaired in short order.
House was quiet, very clean, comfy beds, all in all a great place for family or group to share and great location for exploring the island, which is truly beautiful.
The only 'complaint' we could think of is that the internet connection is quite erratic, seems to drop out for no reason which can be annoying when Facetiming people on the mainland. Signal strength seems to be much better at rear of house or in second floor bedroom so perhaps the wireless router could be relocated? Or possibly this is normal island style internet...
All of our group enjoyed their stay tremendously and we can highly recommend this vacation house, and the island of Kauai. And the limes, picked fresh from our hosts backyard lime tree were fantastic in our Margheritas!! Mahalo, Juliana and Jim for your hospitality!

A lovely Poipu home

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for a week in February 2014 with another family. The home accommodated 4 adults and 3 kids with plenty of room to spare. It was so well furnished for a beach vacation--bikes, helmets, numerous beach toys/mats/towels. The kitchen was perfect for feeding a group of people. It was very quiet and peaceful with views of a farm with horses and a back patio area perfect for relaxing. Having Netflix and wifi added to the comforts of home. Poipu Beach was less than a mile away. A huge thumbs up!

Beautiful and Spacious Home with Incredible Hosts!

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed at this property with nine of my coworkers and there was MORE than enough room for us and our belongings. The location was perfect and near to beaches, surfing, shopping, dining, Old Koloa Town, and all of the gorgeous natural activities Kauai has to offer. The property was extremely clean and well-maintained and the owners were fantastic and responded quickly from start to end. Definitely check out Kalapaki Joe's in Poipu for an awesome happy hour and great eats! I recommend this property to absolutely anyone.
