Maluhia ma ka Honua means 'Peace on Earth' and that is what you will find in this beautiful house located just a 40 second walk to the ocean and just four houses from famous Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park. The question everyone asks themselves as they leave the airport and drive to Poipu is “Did I rent a good house?” Just before you arrive at Maluhia ma ka Honua, your first thought will be “WOW! The ocean is really close!” As you turn up Nalo Road you can't really see the house well because the beautiful white Plumeria trees are in bloom and they hide the house front a bit. You open the front door, remove your shoes, step into the entry, and then it hits you 'WOW! This house is big and gorgeous and well furnished!' Then it really hits you, “This is better than home!” Like m...Maluhia ma ka Honua means 'Peace on Earth' and that is what you will find in this beautiful house located just a 40 second walk to the ocean and just four houses from famous Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park. The question everyone asks themselves as they leave the airport and drive to Poipu is “Did I rent a good house?” Just before you arrive at Maluhia ma ka Honua, your first thought will be “WOW! The ocean is really close!” As you turn up Nalo Road you can't really see the house well because the beautiful white Plumeria trees are in bloom and they hide the house front a bit. You open the front door, remove your shoes, step into the entry, and then it hits you 'WOW! This house is big and gorgeous and well furnished!' Then it really hits you, “This is better than home!” Like most people, you immediately stare at the 14' high vaulted wood ceiling. Then you open the five sliding doors into this great room and it is almost like living outdoors as the cooling trade winds that make Kauai so special waft through the room from three sides and the three ceiling fans cool the room further. In this great room there is a fully-equipped modern kitchen, a casual eating bar for four, a glass oval dining table for eight under a beautiful chandelier, a game table for two, and entertainment seating for seven! Outside under the 1300 sq. ft. covered lanai two more dining tables for four each and casual seating for six. Maybe you start to imagine sunrise coffee under the east lanai and sunset cocktails under the west lanai. Or maybe you see that there is plenty of lawn for the children to play on and chaise lounges for sunbathing when you don't feel like walking the few steps to the beach. Each bedroom brings new delights and each bedroom has three-sided ventilation and a ceiling fan that normally keeps the bedroom so cool that blankets are needed for sleeping. The spacious downstairs master bedroom suite has a king-size pillow top bed and oversized bamboo bedroom furniture with a television, a large walk-in closet, and two glass sliding doors leading to the covered lanai and the lawn. Its private bathroom has two lavatories, an oversized glass block and tile shower, a two-person Jacuzzi tub, and a separate toilet compartment. The heated outdoor shower is just outside this bathroom. The equally large upstairs master bedroom is almost identical to the one downstairs except this one has a vaulted wood ceiling and a nice ocean view balcony. . Over the bed is an original oil painting of Hawaii by famed artist Ezra Muir. The bathroom is identical to the downstairs bathroom except it has a two-person soaking tub. The third bedroom is the largest bedroom and has a great ocean view. It has two twin beds that can be converted to a king bed, a vaulted wood ceiling and rattan furniture. Its bathroom has one lavatory, a toilet and a tub/shower. The fourth bathroom is the powder room downstairs complete with a tiled shower. The laundry room features a washer, dryer and a soaking sink. This house is equipped with everything you need. All kitchen and bathroom needs, all laundry needs, linens, beach towels, beach chairs are provided. You might even find previous guests have left sand toys, boogie boards, and/or snorkeling gear. Come to Poipu and experience a true Hawaiian beach experience! Like the Hawaiians, come to the beach, gather at the sand and spend hours 'talking story'. Use the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean as your swimming pool. Laugh and enjoy the weather and life. Maluhia ma ka Honua was designed to offer an old Hawaiian beach experience with all the modern amenities and comfort and with the ocean as our swimming pool because it is so close to the house. Isn't this why you are coming to Poipu, for the weather, the beach, and the ocean? Previous guests have responded by loving this house and having some of the best family vacations of their lives. Maybe it is the Aloha that resides within the house because of the blessings during construction. Or maybe it is the floorplan that has plenty of private places for two or more people to sit and 'talk story' like the Hawaiians. Or maybe it is the location, just 40 seconds walk to the ocean and two minutes stroll to swimming and sunning at Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park. Whatever the reason, they have left behind hundreds of warm comments in our guestbook, and you can see every one of them by clicking on our 'Guest Comments' section. This house is 'value priced' to give you a wonderful Kauai vacation and give you good value. You will spend so much time and money just getting to Kauai, and the rental cars and meals can be expensive. You deserve to stay in a really nice home and Maluhia ma ka Honua is nice enough that it would easily rent for $700/night if it were one house closer to the ocean. This house is fully licensed by the County of Kauai! (#TV3716) Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: Tax ID w40966078-01More

About the neighbourhood
Maluhia ma ka Honua is just a 40 second stroll down to the ocean's edge at a small bay filled with turtles. From there it is just a short walk past four houses to reach Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park. A little further, 2 minutes walk, is the beach and lifeguard at Poipu Beach Park, and just past that is the Waiohai Beach. Brennecke's Beach is a white sand beach with excellent waves for boogie boarding or body surfing, but the hurricane that passed by in 2015 removed most of the sand under the water. Poipu Beach Park has a nice beach and 'Kid Pond' with knee-deep water and no waves. The Waiohai Beach has deeper, calm water excellent for snorkeling, swimming, and surfing.
