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.
