Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Poipu - Hale Momo

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Hale Momo was featured on the popular TV show 'House Hunters' on HGTV in 2013! Click on this link to see the episode on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBpHJMVHFmo&feature=em-upload_owner

Hale Momo is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom private home located just one block away from world-famous Poipu and Brennecke's beaches. Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac on a quiet street in sunny Poipu, you can walk to the beach in 1-2 minutes. You can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing environment while being just steps from surfing, body boarding, snorkeling, sunbathing, a children's playground, picnic areas, restaurants and shopping.

The home features a spacious living room, wraparound lanais, fully-equipped kitchen, and games room (including foosball and a ping pong table). There are two TVs in the house, free internet WiFi and free unlimited long-distance calling to the US and Canada. One of the bedrooms functions as a second master suite, and can be blocked off as a private studio if desired with its own private entrance (also connects internally to rest of house).

Outside you will enjoy the large lovely lawn with lots of space to play and relax, gas BBQ, outdoor shower, and plenty of dining and lounging areas. With the Pacific Ocean as your swimming pool and all of the modern amenities, most guests comment that this was the best vacation of their life!

Approximately 15 miles from Lihue Airport. Located on the sunny south shore of Kauai where the ocean is always crystal clear and the temperature perfect! This is the perfect house for groups of 6-10 people. I suggest you book early as the house runs at a 80-85% occupancy rate.

We are now offering memberships to the nearby POIPU BEACH ATHLETIC CLUB (website http://www.thepbac.com) for guests during their stay. Please note that these memberships are optional and there is a small additional cost if you choose to use the Club. The costs are $100 for 1 week, and $20 for each additional day beyond 1 week. Price includes you and all of your guests up to 8 people total. The Athletic Club is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm (closed on Mondays).

The club is newly-renovated and is located 0.5 miles from Hale Momo (10 minute walk). Features include an 82,000 gallon resort-style swimming pool with waterslide, 1,600 gallon hot tub, sand-bottom children's pool area, fitness machines (treadmills, ellipticals, AMT machines, stationary bikes), weight circuit, free weights, medicine balls, 3 UTSA regulation tennis courts (ball machines, racquets and balls provided), fitness classes (Core, Zumba, Water Aerobics, Yoga (yoga mats provided; note that cost for these classes are $8 per class/per person), and personal training (extra cost required). You will be assisted in in booking fitness classes and personal training, or reserving a tennis court.

Perfect vacation home for family

  • 5 of 5

Hale MOMO is a perfect home within a 2 minutes walk from Poipu Beach. The home is perfect for families, it offers all the comforts needed. The kitchen is excellent for entertaining after a long day snorkeling or site seeing. The suite allowed us to enjoy quiet evenings as the teenagers and children used the main living area and the games room. The property provides all the needed beach items from chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, sand toys to boogie boards and coolers...The children enjoyed the back yard, from watching the lizards on the lava rocks to playing ladder toss with the backdrop of aloe vera, coconut trees, avocado trees.

Poipu beach offer excitement every day with visits from monk seals or turtles...

We also enjoyed the membership offered at the Poipu Beach Club just a short distance away.. the kids enjoyed the pool and waterslide as we the parents enjoyed the hot tub.

This property is perfect for large families of a group of friends.

Excellent Location - Lots of Fun

  • 5 of 5

I echo all the other wonderful reviews. The house has an excellent location, and is close to the beach. Perfectly walk-able, (even for Grandma on a crutch). The game room was a huge plus for our teenager and the whole family ended up having a blast in there. We did make the error of thinking someone could sleep on the futon (which was comfortable), but it was a bit too hot to sleep in there once it was all closed up for the night. The house is all upstairs except for the game room in the garage. The steps weren't an issue though, and it was nice to have a great view of the huge yard. I loved the layout and the fact that there is one bedroom that can be totally separated, or open as part of the house. I was a little worried that Grandma would feel secluded in that room, but it worked out perfectly. The house is stocked, well kept, and we were very comfortable. Most of all it was so nice not to fight parking at Poipu beach and hang out at Brennecke's restaurant right around the corner.

Hale Momo

  • 5 of 5

I read a poignant passage in one of the assorted travel books at Hale Momo . It stated "whatever your idea of paradise is, you'll find some version of it in Kauai"

Minutes by foot from the gorgeous renowned Poipu Beach, we found our tropical paradise at Hale Momo.

We spent our days exploring land and sea in the form of swimming, snorkelling, surfing and hiking and many of our late afternoons on one of the two lanais. They provided a lushly tropical and very private respite for sipping our refreshing beverages after our very active days. Even the resident roosters took on a certain charm!

Having the opportunity as a family to stay in a large home that provided ample space to comfortably hold a large group, in our case 7 adults, was particularly enriching.

The beds were very comfortable and the white, hotel quality bedding was inviting

Staying in the same house allowed us to plan our days together over coffee in the morning and prepare our meals together while leisurely sipping a cocktail and reminiscing over the wonderful events of the day in the evening.

It was a bonus to find that many desirable amenities were within walking distance of the home.

All of the hotels (my favourite being the Grand Hyatt) have beautiful landscaping and amenities right up to the beaches, and, as all beaches in Kauai are public beaches, made a large variety of hotel restaurants and bars easily accessible to us

Not to be missed is Brenneke's restaurant bar, right across the street from Poipu beach. We loved the coconut shrimp and the staff was fun and very hospitable.

There is also a nice shopping mall about a 15 minute walk away for groceries, wine, Starbucks etc

I think that it is important to note that we visited Kauai in late October/ early November and although the weather network predicted rain for the entire vacation, it was sunny and wonderfully warm - low 80's for the most part, with only a few quick showers.

Contributing to the overwhelming feeling of well being were the Great Vacations staff. From initial contact to any inquiries during our visit, the Great Vacations staff were very helpful, informative and courteous.

We highly recommend vacationing at Hale Momo and offer our sincere thank you to the owners of Hale Momo for opening their home and to Great Vacation Retreats!

Private house, Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Hale Momo with another couple and this was the perfect home for us. It was large enough that each couple had privacy... We both had master bedrooms on opposite sides of the home. With 2 extra bedrooms, it was more space than we needed, but we loved it. The home has a nice open floor plan which made cooking and visiting seamless. The best part of this house is that it was only a block from the beach! The walk was quick & easy.

We unfortunately had a rainy day in Kauai (which apparently almost never happens!), but the games room at the house made it totally okay to stay in for the day. We had table tennis, fooseball and a few board games to keep us entertained.

When we arrived there was a bag of basic needs, a nice arrival note and lots of clean towels. It was completely ready for us. It was easy to find basic information about the area from a binder, plus things like the wifi password and where to find beach equipment in the house.

It was overall an excellent stay and we are looking forward to visiting again soon!

Perfect vacation house for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hale Momo as a big group (my wife, 2 kids and I + my brother-in-law and his family of 4) and I have to say that this was absolutely the perfect house for what we needed. We were on Kauai for a wedding and wanted a space that was big enough for the 8 of us. The house easily slept all 8 of us in our own rooms and the backyard was large and private, which made family get-togethers fun and easy (most of the group were staying at hotels). My younger son liked chasing the little lizards around the backyard and we were even able to eat fresh mangoes all day from the trees on the property! The beaches were very close (short walk) and we were really happy with all the beach equipment available to use that we didn't have to go and buy or rent (we had bought 2 boogie boards at Costco but there were already 4 at the house + snorkel equipment and other stuff).

Overall we were absolutely thrilled with our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Kauai. The price wouldn't be worth it for just 2 people, but it is a really nice, big house and for any group of 4-6 or more, it really is the perfect place to stay.

Private house vacation

  • 4 of 5

Hale Momo has a great location, about one block from the ocean. It is at the end of a dead end street and has good privacy. There is a lanai off of every bedroom. The walk to Poipu beach is about 1/2 mile, a little trek if you are bringing lawn chairs, snorkel gear, etc. The referigerator and washing machine had minor problems. The propane barbecue needed replacement. Some screen doors were in need of repair. But those in need of a four bedroom home and value privacy over interior glamour woiuld find Hale Momo to be just fine.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your response and we are very happy you enjoyed your stay. All houses have small issues like you mention that come up from time-to-time. We are fortunate to have a great property management company very nearby to fix these small problems as soon as we hear about them as I am sure happened in your case. Lucky for us, there are a few different beaches within walking distance from Hale Momo, including Brennecke's Beach and Poipu Beach. The very western part of Poipu Beach is just under a 1/2 mile away walking distance, but the rest of Poipu Beach and Brennecke's Beach are only 0.2 miles away (Google Maps) and can be walked to in around 2 minutes. However, if you are carrying a bunch of beach gear, we agree with you that it can feel like more ;) We look forward to hosting you at our island hale again soon!
