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 September 2013!

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.

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 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.

Good and bad

  • 3 of 5

The property was described well, close to the beach, spacious, great for accommodating multiple people. It was also clean and very cute. We had to get in contact with the rental company and they were on top of it, the friendly handy man had our issue resolved in less than an hour. The house doesn't have air conditioning so opening the house up and using fans is essential to getting sleep. The island has chickens all over it, but just beyond the property(15-30 feet) there are 25-30 hens and roosters living in the low trees. They stay there because of the abundance of food in Kalapaki joes dumpsters. They start squawking around 4AM and don't slow down till 7AM. Around 7 is when the property directly behind hale Momo starts the jackhammer and concrete saw. 3 of the six of us booked another condo nihi kai villas because it was just too loud for them. All three said the chickens were not an issue there. I did like the house but would not book there again.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We do read and take into consideration every comment and suggestion that a guest leaves and strive to solve the problems that we can. Chickens are a part of the unique island life on Kauai and we are sorry they were disruptive to your stay. We have never had any complaints at our home regarding the chickens and will look to see if there is something happening that we can change that is out of the ordinary. We have spoken to the manager at the restaurant Kalapaki Joe's and asked them to make sure they keep their dumpsters closed (this is a law on the island and they said they had been neglectful at times recently of this but would start to do it again every night). In terms of the jackhammering, we apologize that it was disturbing during your stay. There is a new house being built across the street 4 doors down. We went and checked and they are now finished the outside work (including jackhammering) and are working only on the inside of the house now, which should not be disruptive to guests staying at Hale Momo. It was unfortunate you happened to be staying during the exact time of the outside work, but it is no longer an issue now. There haven't been any other issues with construction noise from other previous guests. Other than the noise problems, it sounds like you really enjoyed your stay. We hope you will give it another chance as we would love to host you again at our island home!

Fantastic location and house! Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic first trip to Kauai thanks to Hale Momo, I would definitely stay there again! There was so much space for our entire family of 6 adults and 1 child. The place was meticulously clean when we arrived and had everything that we needed: a fully appointed kitchen, tons of towels, beach gear, etc. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, it is so nice waking up and feeling like you are in lush jungle. The location was perfect, it only took a few minutes to walk down to the beach. The beach was great for kids, a portion of the bay is completely protected from the waves. We also loved having access to the Beach Club. It wasn't that crowded, it was like having a resort pool all to yourself.

Perfect for a Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home because of its location and its roomy size. It was perfect for 3 couples plus kids as I was planning a family reunion with my brothers. We walked to Poipu Beach every day, and a game of ping pong went on nearly every night in the garage game room. The separate studio bedroom area with its small kitchen was perfect for our son and his family since he had a bit of work to go most mornings, and everyone had their separate space.

Everything we wanted to do was nearby, and the home had everything we needed!

Amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

Hale Momo was a perfect place to stay for a week. It was my first visit to Hawaii and I would definitely return and plan to stay at Hale Momo again. The location was one block from Poipu beach and also near the athletic club, whose pool was a nice change of scenery for my two year old. Five of us stayed here and it was very roomy. It was very clean and the gardens were beautiful. Great Vacation Rentals were very easy to deal with from start to finish. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Perfumed Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Only stay here if you enjoy living in a garden paradise. Beautiful fruit trees, perfumed flowers and a well maintained yard. Our stay couldn't have been more perfect. I wish I could have bottled the air! The jasmine and plumeria smell like heaven. Kauai is truly paradise!

We had 8 adults and 3 children staying with us at the Hale Momo. There was plenty of room for everyone. We would absolutely stay here again. Walk to the most beautiful beach in the world. Or spend a day at the pool; our girls loved the Athletic Club pool.

The GVR people are very easy to work with. Only complaints were: the touch operated kitchen sink, lack of fans and pack and play.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home that was perfect for our family get-away -- 6 adults and 2 infants. Privacy for the parents and grandparents was perfect. Porta-cribs and baby accessories were available and the property managers helped with every request we had. We were able to walk to the beaches, the club, dining, luau. We did have 2 rental cars so we could explore more of the island. Helicopter island tour was extraordinary, great hikes, and walks. Cooking at the property made it perfect with the little ones. So grateful as grandparents to have this time with our adult daughters and their families. Thank you for a great location!
