July Poipu Vacation Nice home with everything you need for stay, very clean and decorated with island style, beach access is great too. Only complaint is there is only one bedroom and a small nook, says it sleeps six maybe ok for two adults and 4 children. Other than that I would highly recommend staying st the Hale Malania Response from Poipu 365; Tuesday, July 30, 2019 Aloha Lisa, Thank you so much for sharing your experience at Hale Malanai and we're glad you found everything you needed, clean and well decorated!

Relaxing Family Retreat Hale Malanai was a special treat for our family of 5 (kids: 12, 15, 18). We visited the island many times prior and this is our favorite place to stay! This home was so beautifully and comfortably decorated, there was a little taste of Hawaiian/island living throughout. It was so nice to have so many kitchen supplies, appliances, and cookware to be able to cook at "home"! A true beach bungalow for sure with all the windows offering a gentle ocean breeze, gorgeous views and natural light. Somedays we were perfectly content staying "home" and enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells of Kauai and playing endless games of Banana Grams! At night we enjoyed watching a movie from their library of Kauai-made movies (Blue Hawaii, Jurassic Park, Soul Surfer...) The proximity to Baby Beach was a plus (40 steps to the sand!) Everything we needed to enjoy a day at the beach was provided (chairs, umbrella, snorkeling gear, body boards...) Hale Malanai will be a special place where memories were made for our family. We hope to return! Response from Poipu 365; Friday, June 28, 2019 Aloha Kirk, What a special treat to have your feedback after your stay at Hale Malanai! We're so glad you found a home away from home at here on Kauai - it sounds like the house was great for your family and we're so glad you enjoyed the kitchen, gentle breezes, sights, sounds and smells! Baby beach is such lovely little tucked-away area and we're so glad you made use of all the beach toys. We hope you return soon - thank you for staying with us! Mahalo!

Unbeatable Location Very spacious and well-stocked with everything you need for a great vacation. The lanai was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views, and the beach is right across the street. <br/><br/>Unfortunately the bbq was not working during our stay so we couldn't take advantage of outdoor cooking. Also, be aware that this home is frequented by the neighborhood cats, in case anyone in your group has allergies.

4 nights in paradise As soon as we opened the door we felt like we were at home. It is a warm, thoughtful rental, fully loaded with all you need. Manager responded quickly to questions we had. Great to have beach things to use - chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards. The outdoor shower helps to keep the sand out of the house. Bedrooms aren't private, but wasn't an issue for us. The walls in master don't go all the way to the ceiling. The beds were GREAT! 2nd bedroom nook, super cozy. Didn't use the murphy bed in sitting area but mattress looked thick and comfortable.Loved that the owner had food for the feral cats. Was nice they came to visit. Great ocean breeze with a wrap around porch - lots of sitting areas. Baby Beach right across the street..ran down every night for sunset, super easy - a small, but beautiful beach. The club you have access to is a quick drive with lots of amenities. Used it a few times. Stay in this house (but not when I want to go back!!) Really a nice rental. Lots of room to spread out.

Amazing Rental!!! LOVE this house! We stayed for 7 nights with our family - my husband and I, our 2 young kids, and my parents. You cannot beat the location... literally less than a minute and you're on Baby Beach - perfect for little ones to splash and dig and have a blast without having to worry too much. The neighbors were a hoot, and very helpful with hints on places to visit and things to do. Only thing to note about this house is that it is very open - walls don't go up to ceiling (except in bathrooms), so noises carry. Overall, an enthusiastic 5 stars!!!

Wonderful family vacation we had an incredible time with our family in what callled the Tree House. The location is perfect close to beaches, shops. The free flowing breezes pretty much all day is a relief from the humidity. The kitchen was well stocked we didn't have to buy a full spice for any marinades it was all in the cupboard much appreciated. The washer and dryer was an added bonus so we didn't have to pack as much and we could still have clean clothes. My only suggestion is get more comfortable mattresses. They were very uncomfortable.

Kauai Vacation As a family we travel frequently and have stayed at many different vacation rentals, and I can honestly say this location is one of the very best. The house isn't large or fancy, but it's the perfect size for a family of five. But what really makes this stand out is the service! The owners obviously care about your comfort and have through of everything (there were even bug spray, sunblock, and many toiletries on hand for your stay). The owners have placed local guides and a intro to the local community in the living room to help you plan your activities. If you drink alcohol (we don't drink but we did think it was a kind gesture On their part) they even have a fun "take a bottle, leave a bottle" wine rotation game for anyone that wants to participate. The view from the breakfast table and deck allowed us to eat our cereal while watching the waves on the beach and the spouts and maneuvers of humpback whales offshore. Also the neighbors are an elderly retired couple that look about 30 years younger than they really are and they are some of the sweetest folks around. You simply cannot go wrong with this rental. Also, we had a small issue with one of the toilets while we were there and the management company was on it right away, they are polite and professional in how they handle their guests, I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a perfect family or couple getaway on baby beach.

Fantastic Rental on Hoona Rd We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas 2016 and had a wonderful experience at Hale Malanai. We were not sure what the interior would be like and it surpassed our expectations.The decor was very nice and the fact that the plantation style ceiling did not allow for total room separation was fine for our family with 3 adult children in their 20's. The kitchen was stocked with excellent small appliances and we cooked all but one night in the house . Barbecue was in great working order and again just like home.<br/>The view was unexpected. Because this house is elevated we were able to see over the oceanfront homes and have a really good Oceanview.<br/>Our whole family could sit outside on the wrap around Lanai and enjoy the gorgeous surroundings. Baby beach was a favourite as we could wonder over with all the locals to enjoy the sun or sunset. Really lovely and we hope to be back again.

Wonderful accommodations, great location, professional management We booked Hale Malanai in Poipu for 17 nights in August 2017. We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing stay and were impressed with the comfortable and comprehensive accommodations. Everything went smoothly thanks to the professional management of Poipu 365, as we were greeted with beautiful Hawaiian music, flowers and a welcome letter, and they were always very accessible for questions and advice. Hale Malanai was stocked with everything we needed to get started and experience our home away from home. The location is perfect for beaches, Waimea Canyon, restaurants, and shopping.

Response from Poipu 365; Friday, October 4, 2013 Aloha Tris, The owners of Hale Malanai are appreciative of your quiet and sleeping in without the local morning alarm system (roosters) is priceless! The home is in a great location so close to Baby Beach! Come back again!

Family Vacation/Wedding We booked Hale Malanai for a family vacation. After the booking, our daughter and fiancé announced their engagement. Since the house was right across the street from Baby Beach, we made arrangements for them to be married there. It was a wonderful, small, family wedding on the beach, with cake, food and toasts conveniently back at the house. The home suited our gathering perfectly, with plenty of room for entertaining as well as serving trays for the food and enough glasses for everyone. Overall, our family loved the home: cute décor, plenty of room, everything we needed and how can you beat being located right across from the beach??? You can sit on the deck in the back and see the ocean or spontaneously walk right across the street and go for a swim! The outdoor shower helps clean off all the sand before heading back inside. We BBQ'd on the gas grill on the deck, too. Parking is right under the house, which was a plus. Shopping is right around the corner too, which made it very convenient. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We would definitely come here again!

Best vacation rental ever! There were so many positives about this rental. The welcome gift and flowers started it off. While it wasn't directly on the beach, the view of the ocean was wonderful, and the beach was just a few steps away. The kitchen had top of the line appliances, as well as cooking utensils, serving pieces, etc. There were many books about places to see in Kauai. We REALLY appreciated the beach chairs and beach accessories. One of our favorite things to do was relax on the lanai and take in the view. Hale Malanai made our trip to Kauai such a pleasure. The owners really know the true spirit of aloha. Mahalo to them.

Awesome place We loved the house. We had 4 women and we all had our own bed. The open concept of the house made it so homey. We spent every morning and every night on the lanai watching the ocean and listening to the birds. You are a lot closer to the beach than the pictures appear. Would definitely stay here again!!!

Gorgeous Kauai When we arrived at the home, we were so surprised how beautiful the grounds were. The house had absolutely everything we needed, even extra sunscreen. We prepared quite a few meals, which we ate on the lanai, and the kitchen was equipped with gourmet utensils, etc. Baby Beach is literally only steps away. We were able to walk to the Poipu shopping center to shop, grab a bite, get coffee or be entertained! What a wonderful trip!!

Hale Malanai is even better than described/shown online. The overall location, condition and amenities of this property were just outstanding, and a tremendous value having compared other properties we considered and seeing them up close in the neighborhood. The ocean view (a medium slice, framed beautifully), the covered parking (no hot car!), the wrap-around lanai, indoor w/d (top end LGusa brand) and the well stocked kitchen (+++equipment plus deluxe assortment of basic non-perishable ingredients), quick walk for a dip at the sandy beach were tremendous. We were just one couple so having all this space including two full bathrooms was luxurious. With more guests, you'd have to be sure the 'open' floor plan would work - while bathrooms are completely enclosed with walls up to the ceilings, the extra sleeping areas are visually private but are open near the ceiling so sound will travel. Only minor disappointment: gas range and outdoor grill had limited 'highest' BTU power - so it was only adequate for medium-slow cooking, not for searing/high-heat grilling. Re previous guest complaints: for us, no rooster crowing during our stay!

Best place we've stayed in Kauai so far. Hale Malanai was pretty darn perfect. The location was ideal. Close enough to the ocean to see and hear the waves but not so close that it dominated the tranquil setting. Very convenient to the beach (right on the other side of the street!) and shopping. Loved the under house parking. Kept the rental car clean and cool when not in use, which was most of the time. There was absolutely nothing that we needed that this house didn't have. The large outdoor lanai was the best feature of the house. Very comfortable with a wonderful ocean view and lots of privacy courtesy of the well placed landscaping. More ceiling fans inside and some over the outdoor lanai would be a nice addition to this spectacular house. Only regret was not spending more time lounging out on the lanai. May need to schedule a return trip to Hale Malanai to rectify this oversight.

The owners care for this home and make you feel very welcomed. This was a wonderful home and the location was perfect. We have kids ages 6-14, the beach across the street was calm and the beaches to the left (PK's, Poipu, Centers) were great for surfing! We got lucky with this rental and so thankful we found this perfect home. We kept thinking how thankful we were that the owners of this home are kind enough to rent it for others to enjoy! We came from FL, but if we ever return to Kauai, this WILL be the spot! LOVED EVERY moment there! Rental company was also great. We had a problem with the safe box, and she came right over. Vicki and Christine were very helpful with helping us select the perfect spot for our family. Mahalo!

A bit disappointing This is a delightful little house on a fairly quiet street. Unfortunately there were many broken things when we arrived. I did report about eight items to the property manager and they sent a handyman over the very next day to fix a couple of them. Hopefully the rest will be fixed eventually. Otherwise the house is really great. Walking into the bedroom and finding the main light switch broken off and just a metal piece to move up and down to turn on/off the light is irritating. Sink nozzle broken, no ceiling fans or slatted windows for air flow so opening windows in daytime is important. House needs all windows closed for security at night (their instructions) so can get hot inside. Owner did have two tiny and two large standing fans to help with heat. Unfortunately 3 of the four were broken and the one tiny one did nothing... You get the idea. Great house but I'd suggest a new management company that pays attention to details. We spent the prior week in a Princeville condo where everything worked beautifully so the contrast really stuck out. Wonderful front porch with comfie chairs. Cute furnishings.<br/>

We had a fantastic stay at Hale Malanai - such a beautiful house and it had everything we needed for our stay. <br/><br/>The location is great - just across the road from the beach, and walking distance to the little shopping area. You can see the sea through the trees, but what you lack in beach front views you definitely make up for in space and comfort. This is a real gem of a place and we'd love to go back.

We loved this location! It was great to be in a neighborhood vs noisy condo/resort. The proximity to Baby Beach & the view was spectacular! Our only complaint was a screaming child next door, which we understand it out of your control. Luckily it wasn't a daily occurrence.

Enjoyed our stay, in this very nice home. <br/>Our past trips were spent near Brenneke's Beach, and the roosters in the area made certain we were awake by 5:00am every morning. Not good. At Hale Malanai, we had 14 straight quiet mornings, without a single bird issue. This means a lot while on vacation in Kauai.<br/><br/>Great location and great home. Worth every penny.

We booked Hale Malanai for a family vacation. After the booking, our daughter and fiancé announced their engagement. Since the house was right across the street from Baby Beach, we made arrangements for them to be married there. It was a wonderful, small, family wedding on the beach, with cake, food and toasts conveniently back at the house. The home suited our gathering perfectly, with plenty of room for entertaining as well as serving trays for the food and enough glasses for everyone. Overall, our family loved the home: cute décor, plenty of room, everything we needed and how can you beat being located right across from the beach??? You can sit on the deck in the back and see the ocean or spontaneously walk right across the street and go for a swim! The outdoor shower helps clean off all the sand before heading back inside. We BBQ'd on the gas grill on the deck, too. Parking is right under the house, which was a plus. Shopping is right around the corner too, which made it very convenient. The ne

There were so many positives about this rental. The welcome gift and flowers started it off. While it wasn't directly on the beach, the view of the ocean was wonderful, and the beach was just a few steps away. The kitchen had top of the line appliances, as well as cooking utensils, serving pieces, etc. There were many books about places to see in Kauai. We REALLY appreciated the beach chairs and beach accessories. One of our favorite things to do was relax on the lanai and take in the view. Hale Malanai made our trip to Kauai such a pleasure. The owners really know the true spirit of aloha. Mahalo to them.

We loved the house. We had 4 women and we all had our own bed. The open concept of the house made it so homey. We spent every morning and every night on the lanai watching the ocean and listening to the birds. You are a lot closer to the beach than the pictures appear. Would definitely stay here again!!!

When we arrived at the home, we were so surprised how beautiful the grounds were. The house had absolutely everything we needed, even extra sunscreen. We prepared quite a few meals, which we ate on the lanai, and the kitchen was equipped with gourmet utensils, etc. Baby Beach is literally only steps away. We were able to walk to the Poipu shopping center to shop, grab a bite, get coffee or be entertained! What a wonderful trip!!

The overall location, condition and amenities of this property were just outstanding, and a tremendous value having compared other properties we considered and seeing them up close in the neighborhood. The ocean view (a medium slice, framed beautifully), the covered parking (no hot car!), the wrap-around lanai, indoor w/d (top end LGusa brand) and the well stocked kitchen (+++equipment plus deluxe assortment of basic non-perishable ingredients), quick walk for a dip at the sandy beach were tremendous. We were just one couple so having all this space including two full bathrooms was luxurious. With more guests, you'd have to be sure the 'open' floor plan would work - while bathrooms are completely enclosed with walls up to the ceilings, the extra sleeping areas are visually private but are open near the ceiling so sound will travel. Only minor disappointment: gas range and outdoor grill had limited 'highest' BTU power - so it was only adequate for medium-slow cooking, not for searing/high-heat grilling. Re pre

Hale Malanai was pretty darn perfect. The location was ideal. Close enough to the ocean to see and hear the waves but not so close that it dominated the tranquil setting. Very convenient to the beach (right on the other side of the street!) and shopping. Loved the under house parking. Kept the rental car clean and cool when not in use, which was most of the time. There was absolutely nothing that we needed that this house didn't have. The large outdoor lanai was the best feature of the house. Very comfortable with a wonderful ocean view and lots of privacy courtesy of the well placed landscaping. More ceiling fans inside and some over the outdoor lanai would be a nice addition to this spectacular house. Only regret was not spending more time lounging out on the lanai. May need to schedule a return trip to Hale Malanai to rectify this oversight.

We've been to the islands many times and stayed at a variety of properties, but none as lovely or comfortable as Hale Makanai. From the soaring beamed roof, the beautifully stocked kitchen, the impeccable location near the beach to the numerous thoughtful touches like island music on the ipod and binoculars for whale watching, this house is a delight. Surfing, snorkeling, sunset strolls, ziplining: everything is nearby. And yet you can spend hours listening to the surf and the birds and feel like you're on a private island getaway. Highly recommended.

My husband and I brought our 9 year old little girl to stay at Hale Malanai in Poipu and we couldn't be happier. The location and distance to the beach was perfect. The home was big and open with a wonderful plantation deck that wrapped around the home. We kept all the windows open when we were home and the breezes that came into the place were lovely. The kitchen was filled with all the greatest cooking utensils, everything worked perfectly. We loved the outdoor shower , the hanging hammocks on the back deck, the lighting throughout was all bright and natural, the parking was spacious. the house provided beach towels and beach chairs and boogie boards. It truly was the perfect place to stay . I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it anybody looking for a place in Poipu.
