Hale Malanai is a beautifully appointed and upgraded 2 bedroom, 2 bath Baby Beach, Poipu Vacation Home. Hale Malanai is a seashell's throw from scenic, crescent shaped, sandy Baby Beach and is completely surrounded by a spacious covered deck with the living area on the 2nd floor for the best views.
" Excellent property. One of the best places we have ever stayed." - Dan K, Parker, CO " We had a fantastic stay at Hale Malanai - such a beautiful house and it had everything we needed for our stay. 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." - London, UK
"Everything I expected and More!" This Hawaiian home is fantastic! We had a wonderful time during the week we stayed here! The view from the lanai is amazing! Ocean, palm trees, flowers, loved the fact that we are only a few feet from the public beach entrance to Baby Beach. The downstairs bamboo shower is a plus before coming back upstairs for dinner and cocktails. The kitchen is great and I really appreciated that it has all the utensils and gadgets for great cooks to make fabulous meals. The parking below the house was nice since the narrow street gets somewhat crowded during the day with other visitors that have disovered this spot. Another thing I loved was the close proximity to shopping and dining. It was an easy walk to go see the giant sea turtles at the sea wall and then stop by for breakfast pizza ( a first for me) at Living Foods Market. Kauai was everything I expected and more! I plan to come back soon and hope I am able to stay at Hale Malanai. I hear you can watch wales from the lanai during whale season."- Cynthia, TX

Uwe S. from Zurich, CH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 Of all of the places that we (a family with 2 adult daughters) have been around the world, this one is our favorite. From the first second we felt like visiting the home of good friends. The place is just perfect, obviously not some standard house/condo but the home of someone with a love for detail who simply allows others to stay there. There is really nothing more we could wish for and we loved every day.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you Uwe for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write this wonderful review. We are so please to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to you returning in the near future. Mahalo
Darryl W. from Trabuco Canyon, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in July, 2016 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. Overall our stay was fabulous and we are returning next year!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Hale Malanai. We will send your suggestion about the mattresses to the owner. We look forward to your return next year. Mahalo for taking the time out to write a review.
Michael N. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 Great house where you feel like you are staying with friend. Great location right off Baby Beach. Home is well stocked and very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Everything was in tip top shape and very clean.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo for your review, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to you returning again in the near future.
Donna D. from Burlington, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2016 Our stay was wonderful! The house was fantastic and even better than in the photos with a lot of space, well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds.It also had a lot of warmth and character with all of the tasteful Hawaiian touches and decor.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo for your review, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again in the future.
A guest from Laguna Niguel, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2016 We stayed a week with our three young adult kids. There are many great things about Hale Malanai, the best being that we always looked forward to returning after daily excursions. Location is a close and easy walk to stores and restaurants, snorkeling, and Baby Beach. Not much privacy at all in second bedroom, would not work for non-family groups.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you for your review Jon, we appreciate you taking the time out to write it. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay, and we hope you will stay with us again.
Kelly R. from Des Moines, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2015 Great location, totally accurate from photos, clean, spacious, well-appointed home. Lots of thoughtful details (make sure to read their book of hints). Loved our time here.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Kelly, thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Hale Malanai. Mahalo and have a wonderful year.

Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you for taking the time to write a review Erik. We appreciate and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Mahalo and have an awesome day.
A guest from College Station, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2015 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mark, we are so happy that you and your family had a wonderful stay at Hale Malanai. We hope that when you plan your next adventure to Kauai in the future, you will consider renting our lovely home again. Mahalo for taking the time to write us a review.
A guest from Coeur D Alene, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 She has thought of everything, house is so well stocked, very clean , out performed her description. Overall , well worth the money and then some. Perfect. No complaints, thank you so much. Because of your home and thoughtfulness we created memories that we will cherish for a lifetime!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aww Carin, we are so happy to read that Hale Malanai brought you so much joy during your stay. We hope that you will come back and make more beautiful memories. Mahalo for your lovely review.
A guest from Paris, Paris recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 Perfectly in line with the description on the website. Very clean, bright. A special mention for the kitchen which is a real chef atelier with everything you could dream about to make French cuisine. You really feel like Hale Malanai is your second home.20 meters from the sea. 100 meters from a surf spot.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Florence, we so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Hale Malanai. We hope that you will book with us again the next time you plan to visit Kauai. Mahalo for taking the time to write this lovely review.
A guest from San Jose, California recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2015 wonderful house. we loved being across from the beach and walking distance to many things. the house is well maintained and welcoming. Pictures are an accurate representation of the house.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you Colleen for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will consider Hale Malanai on your next Kauai stay. Mahalo
Beautiful Beachfront Property - Close to everything
Debra S. from Gaithersburg, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Beautiful house - great location, close to lots of restaurants, the beaches. Wonderful thoughtful hosts. Would definitely recommend this house to others. We really loved the wrap-around lanais.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 We are so happy to hear that Hale Malanai was to your liking. We hope you will book again when you come back to Kauai. Mahalo Nui Loa
A guest from CALGARY, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2015 The home was very clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. Cute and welcoming! You can hear the waves and birds which was lovely. Lots of nice windows and sliding doors to open have a nice breeze come through the home. Nice bathrooms and our son enjoyed the outdoor shower at the end of a day surfing. There are lots of books/games to enjoy. Great location to walk to Baby Beach and Kekuila Shops. Our son loved the bi-fold doors feature that he could close and then have his own living space. Only possible improvements would be to upgrade the televisions for those rainy days when you have to stay in or to watch a movie in the evening and to upgrade to a kingsize bed in Master bedroom.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo Carol-Lynn for writing the review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Hale Malanai. We will let the owner know of your suggestions. We hope that when you return to this lovely island that you will stay with us again.
A guest from Aspen, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 Hale Malanai was more than we expected. Well-located in a safe, family-friendly neighborhood. An easy 50 yards from Keiki beach. Great neighbors (Joe and Selma). Very clean, very well-equipped, and already very missed by my family. We hope to be back someday!
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in March, 2015 Had a relaxing and wonderful time!Second year of staying Hale MalaniLove the location and visiting with Selma and Joe next doorAlways a treat to stay here
Mark K S. from Southlake, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 We loved Hale Malanai! It was perfect for the two of us. Kitchen well equipped.Very nice touches such as pre loaded iPad, beach chairs, coolers, blender, and even good beach towels. Even became friends with the neighbor, Joe who is a 6 month resident. Counting the days until we can return. Only thing I would like to see upgraded is a larger TV and possibly a king sized bed.Mahalo.
Sabrina S. from Frankfort, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2015 We have been to Kauai many times but this was our first time renting a house. We loved it. This rental had many special touches to make you feel home - like a wine exchange with 6 bottles waiting for you spin arrival honor system to replace. Steps from beach with beach gear to use for the kiddos. Lots of seating areas. Highly recommend
A guest from Delano, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2015 Staying at Hale Malanai made for a fabulous vacation for my family of 4 (kids ages 6 and 2). There was plenty of room for sleeping, playing, cooking, eating, parking (!). The location is great for walking to the nearby shops, and of course to the beach across the street (saw sea turtles having breakfast off shore).
A guest from Seaforth, New South Wales recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2015 nice place close to the beach. house is well furnished and can accommodate 6 guests (a family). don't expect much privacy as the internal partition doesn't reach the ceiling so there is no noise insulation internally. it is not suitable for 2 couples
Reviewed by: Keith V. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2014 A perfect place to stay while on Kauai! Rent it! Home had everything we needed from boogie boards to beautiful views to comfortable beds. House was spotless! One of the best things? --sharp kitchen knives! Not many rentals have good utensils but Hale Malanai did and we were able to make many delicious meals there. (simple things, I tell you!). Well-stocked spices and dry goods, available small appliances, etc. --just like home!Well located to Baby Beach (50 paces away!), shops, grocery store, etc. Neighbor Joe was a plethora of information which was great, as we took advantage of many activiites to do. Quiet road, calm neighborhood, perfect for strolls.Rent it!!Can't say enough "good" about this place.
A guest from Woodside, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2014 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.
Brad M. from Ballwin, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2014 We were so happy the have stayed in Hale Malanai for our Kauai vacation. The owners added so many personal touches to the home. We loved having all the cooking utensils, spices, gas grill, and the available beach gear (mats, chairs, boogie boards). The rotating wine collection is also a nice touch. We loved eating on the lanai and watching the waves roll in. Our other favorite was sleeping in the daybed and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves! There is no A/C but we really only found it to be humid in the late afternoon, by evening things cooled off really fast and there are multiple fans available for use. Staying at the Hale Malanai really added to our absolutely wonderful Kauai vacation. Can't recommend it enough and hope we are fortunate enough to stay their again sometime down the road.
Spacious, inviting, beautiful...wish we didn't have to leave!
A guest from Ponte Vedra, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 Aloha! We rented this house for our family of 6. It was exactly as pictured, maybe even a little prettier. 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!
Dianna S. from Solana Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2014 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.
A guest from Colorado Springs, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2014 Perfect for our family of 5. Great open floor plan, excellent breezes through many doors and windows, fully stocked kitchen, great views from the lanai and super location in close proximity to many Poipu area beaches.
Thomas I. T. from Pasadena, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in May, 2014 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.
Jan H. from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 We loved the large living space. The location was perfect with a lovely view of the ocean between a few rooftops. We hope to visit again soon!
Nanette B. from Vallejo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in May, 2014 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.
A guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 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!
A guest from San Rafael, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2014 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.
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in March, 2014 Christine was always very friendly, professional , and listened to our needs.We appreciated her professionalism , and made the rental experience easyThank you!!!
A guest from Millville, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 We had a great time at the hale Malanai. The home was beautiful and had everything we needed. Loved the beach chairs, and the kitchen had lots of extras. We can't wait to come back.
Tracie C. from Lynnwood, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in December, 2013 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.
Susan R. from Copley, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 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.
A guest from Green Bay, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 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!!!
Tris J. from Foothill Ranch, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2013 Enjoyed our stay, in this very nice home. 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.Great location and great home. Worth every penny.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 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!
Joseph W. from Puyallup, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 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!
David M. from Midland, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 We had a wonderful week, great location, close to the beach and activities on the island!! We would stay here again as often as possible.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha David,The owners and Poipu365 are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Hale Malanai. Come back again!
A guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in October, 2012 We loved everything about this rental. We appreciated how well appointed it was with beach gear and kitchen supplies.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo, we look forward to reserving Hale Malanai for your next Poipu getaway!
A guest from Kahaheo, Hawaii recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012 I rented Hale Malanai for my parents visiting me and it was a perfect place for two people. The second bed is really a Murphy bed and the overall design of the place doesn't offer much privacy if there are two couples staying there, but otherwise we were very happy with the house. It has everything you need and more for cooking, great beach access, and very private feeling despite being so close to your neighbors. The management company was very quick to respond to a question we had. We would definitely rent this house or any other property they managed.
A guest from London, England recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2011 We had a fantastic stay at Hale Malanai - such a beautiful house and it had everything we needed for our stay. 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.
