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

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

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 10).

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 Kauai

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.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

There were seven of us staying here, grandparents, parents and two grandchildren aged 4. There was plenty of space for everyone. The house was in excellent condition with everything you could think of available for us. Every day we would pack up the cars with the cooler, beach chairs, sand toys, etc. and be off for an adventure. We spent our days hiking, going to the beach, touring botanical gardens, visiting farmers markets and much more. In the evening we would make use of the fully equipped kitchen, the deck with the grill and enjoy some "down" time. The beds were very comfortable and the owners were very nice and helpful by answering questions before we arrived and once we got there. I can't say enough wonderful things about this rental and would highly recommend it to everyone.

Awesome vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on February 23 and was there for nine nights. There was nine in our party and the accomations suited everyone. The home is well kept and the beds were comfortable. The sunsets were breath taking from the deck. The location was close to everything we had plan to see on Kauai especially Poipu beach. I would highly recommend this vacation rental and plan to book with them again the next time I visit Kauai.

Cousins in Kauai 2015

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from an amazing holiday in beautiful Kauai and are longing to go back already. A bunch of us cousins had a reunion there and part of this amazing stay was due to this great home we chose to stay in. The owners were wonderful people. Always very friendly and helpful. The house was really spacious and located so nice and close to the beach. We especially appreciated the use of all the beach equipment and bikes. Had some fun adventures cycling around the area, snorkelling and boogey boarding. All without the extra costs of renting all these items. Very much appreciated! It felt like a home away from home. We would love to all come back again someday! A perfect holiday!

Highly recommend this home.

Muku Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was centrally located and just what we needed. We greatly enjoyed our our stay. The house was well kept up, spacious and beautiful. We had 8 adults, 2 kids, a 12 and a 14 year old and 2 babies staying in the house for 10 days. We liked having the beach item available and saved us from renting or bringing our own items like beach towels and beach mats ice chest and more. We all had a great time and would recomend this house to families going to Kauai.

Excellent location and a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious home located in an extremely convenient spot. You will be walking/jogging distance from Poipu beach park and live among some very friendly locals. Make sure to check out the dude around the corner selling Lychees while he BBQ's in his front yard! I would absolutely stay here again. Highly recommended!
