Surrounded by lush tropical foliage, Ala Muku is a beautifully appointed 2,500 sq. ft. home with festive island decor 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.

Experienced surfers can catch large-breaking waves further out beyond the reef. Brennecke Beach is renowned for body surfing and boogie boarding.

About Ala Muku Vacation Rentals-Juliana & Jim Cherry

Juliana and Jim own 2 homes in Kauai and manage a number of other beautiful homes and condos. They began visiting the Garden Island in 1997 and now are permanent residents. Juliana is a licensed real estate broker in Hawaii. Her special enjoyment is gardening. She loves to share the many wonderful features of Kauai with her visitors, especially the great beauty of the local botanical gardens.

Why Ala Muku Vacation Rentals-Juliana & Jim 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.

Great home in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home was perfect for our family gathering of 9 (age range 57 to 2 years old). The kitchen had every appliance we needed (including a crockpot) and had a few spices/herbs as well which is always a plus. The refrigerator is huge with great ice making capacity and there were plenty of serving bowls/pitchers/plates/utensils/etc, to accommodate our crowd. There was also a nice gas grill outside on the patio next to a huge built-in table and benches where we enjoyed a lot of meals!

The owners have thoughtfully provided extras throughout the house (games/books for all ages, pillows, blankets, packnplay, etc) and if you have a need they’re quick to assist. There is a large amount of beach towels provided along with a great collection of beach toys, chairs, etc- many things left by prior guests and nice for Jim and Juliana to keep around for others to use. There were also a couple of bikes that we made use of throughout the week-but ask if you’re interested, they might be phased out soon.

The location is fantastic! Literally up the road from Poipu beach in a residential neighborhood. It’s so well placed that it was easy to pop down for a quick snorkel anytime we wanted! We often walked or rode bikes to the beach, too. A tip: please do drive the posted 20mph up the road- there are often kids or elderly people out and there’s a very old dog who stands in the road too!

When back on Kauai this will be the home we return to! Thanks Jim and Juliana for a great accommodation!

Owner's Response: Juliana and I are so happy you enjoyed your stay in Poipu and at our Ala Muku home. It is a special place in a great location. Thank you for the lovely review. By the way the old dog in the road is kind of the mascot of the neighborhood , his name is Ricco. We worry about him since he expects the cars to go around him. So far so good.☺ Best regards, Jim and Juliana

great home for a family

  • 5 of 5

this house is comfortable, well stocked, located in a quiet neighborhood and has plenty of room for a large group. we enjoyed being on the sunny south end of the island and the proximity to Poipu beaches. Access to the Poipu Pool and Athletic club was a bonus!

This house has everything except plastic forks.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 nights in November. The house has absolutely everything one could want. Fiction books, Kauai guide books and games. Fins, beach chairs and mats, towels, washer, dryer and laundry soap (‘All’ free and clear!). Bicycles, ceiling fans, three TVs, Netflix, 3 bathrooms. The kitchen has everything a cook could want except a food processor. You can bake, cook on a beautiful 5 burner gas range, microwave, large frig and ice maker in the freezer. I even found cupcake wrappers!

Nice job hosts!

Very nice house, quiet but close to beaches

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay, the house was just as advertised, with plenty of room for all of us. Used some of the beach toys, but not the bikes. BBQ was nice. One of the days was rainy, so we took advantage of the games and books that were available.

Last week of May in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Nice spacious house. A bit of a walk to the beach but a quick ride if you go on the bikes provided. Loved riding the bikes around the beach trails. There are five bikes but not all are working 100%. Some of them the seats wont adjust, some wont shift gears but they work for beach cruisers. Boogie boards provided but only 3 had leashes which are required. Lots of beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, and snorkeling gear ( we did not use, brought our own snorkeling gear). Really nice to have all that right there.

The owners were right there if you needed anything! It was well kept. Everything you needed to cook, BBQ, etc was there. Lots of towels for the bathrooms and access to a W/D. It worked out perfectly for our group of 6. We even had a room we did not use!

Beds were comfortable and layout of house perfect for us. I would highly recommend it. We were even able to get a late check out from the owners. Having the property owners right there makes it really nice, they were very kind and accommodating.

Wonderful Family Gathering Home

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 2 children 3 & 1. This was a home for us for 9 days. Everything you could ask for was available. Truly well stocked kitchen (excluding food) Enough room for all. Was easy and comfortable, more than I even expected. So worthy and Jim & Juliana are so very kind and accommodating. BBQ was fabulous all the gear for beach and bikes to ride, everything you would desire for a beach and sightseeing is offered . I call it a home because it felt like one , not just a place to stay. Absolutely Fabulous.
