The Kauai Vacation of Your Dreams!
May 6, 2014, Beautiful home in tranquil neighborhood
Apr 3, 2014, Ala Muku is a great place to stay!
Stayed at Ala Muku for 2 weeks with 5 other family members(all adults, over 40 yrs). House was very nice and matched the listing description. Kitchen well equipped, very nice Weber BBQ on front deck, laundry facilities and all the toys we needed in garage(5 bicycles, lots of beach towels, boogie boards, fins, snorkels, kids beach toys, etc). House was 2 min. from Poipu Beach by car, 4 min. by bicycle(cross the road at end of street and take path through the empty lot) or 10 to 15 min. by foot. There was a problem with one of the bicycles not working. Jim replaced it with another bicycle and had the broken bike repaired in short order. House was quiet, very clean, comfy beds, all in all a great place for family or group to share and great location for exploring the island, which is truly beautiful. The only ‘complaint’ we could think of is that the internet connection is quite erratic, seems to drop out for no reason which can be annoying when Facetiming people on the mainland. Signal strength seems to be much better at rear of house or in second floor bedroom so perhaps the wireless router could be relocated? Or possibly this is normal island style internet… All of our group enjoyed their stay tremendously and we can highly recommend this vacation house, and the island of Kauai. And the limes, picked fresh from our hosts backyard lime tree were fantastic in our Margheritas!! Mahalo, Juliana and Jim for your hospitality!
Mar 4, 2014, Beautiful and Spacious Home with Incredible Hosts!
I stayed at this property with nine of my coworkers and there was MORE than enough room for us and our belongings. The location was perfect and near to beaches, surfing, shopping, dining, Old Koloa Town, and all of the gorgeous natural activities Kauai has to offer. The property was extremely clean and well-maintained and the owners were fantastic and responded quickly from start to end. Definitely check out Kalapaki Joe’s in Poipu for an awesome happy hour and great eats! I recommend this property to absolutely anyone.
Dec 29, 2012, Perfect Poipu Rental
We stayed here with 8 adults and 1 infant. Jim and Juliana prepared everything before our arrival and it was perfect! Large kitchen and dining room easily accomodated our group, and the location was close enough to the beach for easy access, but not so close we were overrun by tourists. It felt like an authentic Kuaui experience! Amenities were exactly as described and super helpful! If we ever go back to Hawaii, we’ll be sure to stay here again!
Nov 20, 2012, Amazing Place
When travelling with our family of 6 (kids are college age and up), we want a place to stay that is relaxing and provides the amenities of home. This place provided that. The rooms are all quite reasonable in size and everything was clean. Having a Costco near the aiport allowed us to have most of our meals at the condo. Having a washer and dryer was a lovely extra. The balconies were a perfect place to start the mornings with coffee. The ceiling and floor fans kept the air comfortable. The only thing that wasn’t working perfectly was the dishwasher, but I’m sure the owners will check this out as they are very conscientious (dishwasher worked best when people weren’t taking hot showers prior to using it). The garden beltway (walkway) to Poipu beach was beautiful (I recommend you find this path right away to start enjoying the nearby beaches). The pool and jacuzzi were also wonderful to have nearby. The location for sightseeing as well as eating out was ideal. Excellent emails and directions were included by the owners. We would definitely recommend this place!

Apr 19, 2012, #123 Regency Poipu,Koloa, HI
Aloha from Calgary, Ab Canada We were fortunate to have stayed here for our first week on the Hawaiian Islands.It was exactly as we had pictured it. We absolutely loved this property. We had everything we needed to set up housekeeping, it was clean and very spacious for my family of 6. The location was excellent, close to shopping, restaurants and even close enough to walk to famous Brennecke Beach.We took advantage of all the beach toys but would have like to have had an extra boogie board the one board had to be shared among 4 people. This condo is very central and we were able to explore the other sides of Kauai.We would all recommend this holiday property, it definitely was a HOMEAWAY.from Home! Mahalo to our hosts Jim and Juliane for sharing their home with us. Sylvi, Marie, Richel, Sharlene, Amanda and Shane!
Feb 9, 2012, Hawaiian Get Away
Myself and three girlfriends found this wonderful condo on VRBO. You always worry about whether the ad will live up to the reality and boy did it. The condo was beautiful, well cared for and stocked with everything a vacationer from the mainland could possibly need. Communication with the owner was effortless and timely and they worked with me about how to split up the cost for the four of us. The condo is close to beautiful beaches, restaruants, and if you get there while it is still light, a quick trip from the airport, (we got a little turned around). I would recommend this property in a heartbeat and look forward to return trip here.
Feb 14, 2010, Regency At Poipu Kai-condo 123
Jim and Juliana, We thoroughly enjoyed the condo and the excellent service and help you gave us. The condo was clean and well furnished with extras such as a great selection of untensils and small electrics. The Master Bedroom and Bath as well as the other bedrooms and Bathrooms were perfect for all of us, including our son, daughterinlaw and granddaughters.The washer and dryer were very helpful as well. We love Kauai and all it has to offer such as the snorkeling at all the beaches. The Beach House restaurant is wonderful and it’s beach is our favorite. We saw sea lions and turtles. We even saw whales breaching at times. We have told our friends of your condo and hope to come back as soon as we can. Thank you again for all your help! Mahalo! Roy and Rita
Feb 4, 2014, A Perfect Location in Poipu…
If you are interested in Poipu Kai Regency, look no further than this perfect unit! This unit is in the rear of the building, away from the road, not facing parking, across from the pool so you can see when it’s empty or when the grill is being used, and adjacent to the Greenbelt. Great walks: to right down to Poipu Beach and beyond: the left. to the Hyatt and on to the Maha’ulepu cliffs and spectacular scenery. Easy walking distance to good restaurants, including at the Hyatt. Very well-appointed and well-equipped for cooking meal in the unit. The Big Save is much better that it used to be for meat, fish, poke, fresh veggies, wine, etc. Great Farmers’ Market on Wednesday at Kukui-ula Shopping Center – and fruit stand right across the road! Juliana and Jim are great hosts…
Nov 22, 2013, Home away from Home…
We’ve been visiting frequently Kauai for more than 30 years. Our latest holiday was our third (fourth?) vacation in this superb condo. Having found it, we’ll not stay anywhere else in the future. It was like a return to a second home…familiar, comfortable, delightful. Already in great condition, it has been updated with new carpet, adding to the luxurious finish. The location is convenient to all those facilities and activities we so enjoy about Poipu. A short walk to the beaches, yet just far enough away to be quiet and private. Swimming pool, just outside the front door, is used by only a few neighbors and most of the time, we swim by ourselves. We love this place….!
Oct 14, 2012, Excellent Choice!
We have been to Kauai about eight times and love it. We stayed at our usual condo for the first week but it was already booked for the second week, so we had to find another accommodation. Our son has stayed in this unit and said it was great – it was! The best equipped unit we have EVER rented, which we appreciated as we like to eat in most nights. Very clean and nicely decorated, except that couches need to be replaced (not very comfortable). Photos, which I always study carefully, were very accurate, as was the extensive and very helpful description of the unit and area. Had initial trouble accessing the wifi but the manager was very helpful in resolving the issue quickly Unit is very well-located in complex. Faces the pool, which is empty most days until late afternoon. Location is adjacent to the Poipu Kai Greenbelt, but well-screened from it. Easy to hop on the Greenbelt to walk either to the Hyatt or to Poipu Beach. Unit is accessed by a code, so no need to take keys to the beach. Away from the parking lot so your lanai does not face a sea of cars as some do. Sun in the living room in the early morning but cool in the afternoon. I checked out other Poipu Kai Regency units before booking this one and think I made the right choice! Within walking distance to. Hyatt restaurants and to Casa di Amici, where we had a fabulous dinner. New (to us) Kukui’ula shopping center has some nice shops, several restaurants ((Josseline’s Tapas Restaurant was outstanding – went twice), and a small gourmet market, Living Foods, which has great meat and fish, prepared side dishes, cheeses, etc. Farmers Market in center on Wednesday afternoons – great source for fresh fruit, flowers, and greens . We were very pleased with this rental and would definitely recommend it!
Jan 8, 2010, Holiday Kauai vacation
I was fortunate to spend the week between xmas and new years on the beautiful island of Kauai with my adult children. We stayed in a condo at the Mala Pua Regency at Poipu Kai. This unit exceeded our expectations. It was a perfect size for 4 adults with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The furnishings were excellent and the kitchen was very well equiped. We especially enjoyed the lanai off the living room that faced the pool. We spent many hours eating and talking on it. The condo’s location is excellent being next to a path that was a 10 minute walk from the Hyatt and the Poipu beach. It is also a sort drive or walk to numerous restaurants and shops.

This unique vacation home was the only private house with pool in the Makahuena Resort complex in sunny Poipu. The resort had a communal pool, hot tub, tennis court, and barbecue areas. However this lovely home was located further down hill and only yards from the ocean. The sparking blue pool, separating the home from the sea, provided a focal point of tranquility in contrast to the backdrop of ever changing ocean currents. The breathtaking sunsets could to be comfortably viewed from every room. The main floor was decorated in a warm tranquil manner. Two master suites and bathrooms were on the main floor. Each bedroom was generous in size and decorated in a tropical theme. We were lulled to sleep by the sound of ocean waves. Linens and vacation necessities such as wireless internet were provided. The gourmet equipped kitchen was spacious enough for three people to prepare meals. Living spaces comfortably accommodated activities such as family board games, reading, and dolphin watching. The downstairs area almost served as a separate unit. The family room had a queen sofa bed, dining area, TV, wet bar, bathroom, and washer dryer. Almost a year later, when viewing a sunset picture taken while staying at Alaula, I feel relaxed.The vacation was not only rejuvenating but now has provided me with a stress reduction tool on my phone screen saver.
