Diana, San Diego, CA says
We had a great stay at Hale Maluhai. The pictures on the website doesn’t do it justice. It’s a beautiful house in a great location with plenty of outdoor space. The front of the house has a serene lounging area with a waterfall and the back of the house has a huge Lanai with the view of the green belt. The beach is a 3 minute walk and we made it a point to walk there every morning to see the sunrise. The house was spacious enough to accommodate 8 of us comfortably. House was clean, beds were comfortable and had everything we needed. Kitchen has plenty of pots, pans and dishes but no seasonings or spices but really not an issue. Will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Kauai.
Mahalo Diana for your 5-star review and comments. We are so happy that the home exceeded your expectations! It is so nice hearing about your moving sunrise walks and that everyone was comfortable throughout their stay. We look forward to hosting your next stay at Hale Maluhia at Poipu Kai! Aloha and a hui hou.

The location of this home can’t be beat. The beach is close enough to walk and you get a small ocean view. The home itself is beautiful. Our only complaints was that the pool is not heated and was virtually unusable while we were there because the weather was not great or warm enough to justify swimming in a cold pool. Also, there is very little hot water in the house itself, making showers and washing in the sinks very unpleasant. Could also use a little maintenance/upgrades on small things like pans etc. Overall good.
Mahalo Lacey for your review and feedback. We love that you enjoyed the home and its location. We understand that it can be disappointing not to use the pool when the weather is colder and rainy, mostly in the winter months. Unfortunately, most private pools are not heated, but we will pass on the suggestion about heating the pool to the owner for future upgrades. For next time, let us know and we can point you in the direction of the few heated pools. We apologize, had we known that you were experiencing problems with the hot water in the home, we would have come over to investigate and resolve the issue. Next time, please give us a call, and we will do our best to make it right. Thank you for the heads up on the pans and other items. We will be sure to inspect them and replace them as necessary. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!

It was kept up immaculately and everything was in working order.
Everything was easy and professional. The house was amazing, but the T.V. and radio in the living room was so frustrating. Such a techy house and very poor instructions, slow, slow internet and couldn’t watch any tv there. Not a big issue, but would have loved to use the music in a house with speakers in every room. Thank you for amazing memories. I am always so happy with your company. I’ll start saving for my next trip.
Mahalo Crystal for your 5-star review and comments. Our apologies for any inconvenience with the TV. We understand that all technology can sometimes be frustrating. If we knew you were having trouble, we would’ve come right out and helped you. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we really look forward to hosting you again soon! Aloha and a hui hou!

TV needed replacement. AC had problems in one bedroom. 2 bathroom sinks needed adjustment
Aloha Mike and Barbara. It was a pleasure to welcome you back to Hale Maluhia at Poipu Kai. Thank you for your 5-star review and comments. We really appreciated your patience with the AC unit and we’re sorry that we weren’t able to have it repaired during your stay. Glad that Liz was about to deliver a new TV for you. We love hearing from our repeat guests and we cannot wait to host you again soon! Aloha and a hui hou!
LOVE this property! Perfect location, beautiful house and gardens. Very spacious, comfortable, quiet and peaceful. Easy 5 minute walk to the beach. Looking at my schedule now to try and get back there ASAP!
Aloha Lori, Mahalo for your comments and we look forward to hosting you again soon.

What a great find.Stayed for a week in Hale Maluhia.We were a group of 7 and the home was comfortable for all.The house is situated on a lovely piece of property with beautiful breezes that blow all day long and night.All bedrooms are have a/c.The main living area has plenty of windows and 3 sliding glass doors that when opened allows all those breezes too flow throughout the house.There are 3 outdoor sitting areas.A garden area in front with privacy surrounded with beautiful foliage.Then you have a deck area off living room with seating for 8 to enjoy eating.Down 4 steps to the beautiful pool area where we spent time with some cocktails and good music.Washer and dryer a plus.Everything is in close proximity to house including Poipu Beach which is beautiful.We were entertained by 2 Monk seals and sea turtles.Zip lining and ATV ing very close.If staying in Poipu Beach area this home is beautiful.Thank you Parrish Collection and the owners of The house of peace.
Awesome house, pool is amazing, neighborhood is filled with well kept homes. Trade winds blow though the living room which is really nice after a day in the sun. House is well furnished, comfortable and has all the things you need. Parrish was responsive to a minor request for help with the televisions. All in all an amazing place
We had a wonderful stay! The house was beautiful, the pool was really fun, the location was excellent. It had everything you could ask for and was very relaxing!

Perfect for our family of 6 (11, 14, 16 and 19 year old kids)! Beautiful home and amazing location. We’d definitely come back to this home. Thanks
Mahalo Peter for your review. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Aloha!
Ah…. location, location, location-this location is a hard one to top. Beautiful-early morning 2 mile walk along Shipwreck Beach. Your own private perfect pool for fun and relation. An amazing house made to feel like home away from home. All the information needed for fine dining and local activities – Paradise in paradise…..

Lovely house near beaches
Hale Malukia is a beautiful house which overlooks a greensward with paths to beaches and a distant view of the ocean. The house is very sunny and pleasant. The kitchen is well-stocked with pans, dishes and appliances. The bedrooms are comfy but note that the beds in the 3rd bedroom are short with boards across the bottom, which was a bit difficult for my 6’5″ son. The trundle bed in the second bedroom is also short. The enclosed pool was very nice (icy cold at New Years!) and the most private spot in the house since it was not visible from the nearby trail. We had some minor problems, like sometimes there was no hot water for showers and we couldn’t heat the spa, and the garden fountain didn’t work, but overall the house is so beautiful we didn’t care. It would have been nice if the master bathroom sinks drained. There are boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs and coolers in the garage. The 10 a.m. Checkout came very early, and we were denied an extension due to the next guests arriving.
Mahalo Susan for your review. We agree, this is a beautiful home. We checked the hot water heater and spa do not see any issues, nor have the last few guests reported any problems. However, we will keep an eye on things. The fountain does have a leak and we are waiting parts for a repair, but that should be soon. We are sorry we could not offer a late out. In the future, we encourage you to coordinate that when you make your reservation as it can be confirmed then. Mahalo again and we look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou!
The pictures are accurate, but there is so much more. The crosswind breezes are perfect throughout the house. All three bathrooms were beautiful, especially in the front master bedroom; to shower under the stars was awesome. The kitchen offered everything we needed. Sleeping to the sounds of the ocean was just wonderful. The entire house was so tranquil.
The owner was very accommodating with all our requests and questions. The house was well maintained. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Can you tell me if this rental is a private home or attached too other rental s
While the listing description of Hale Maluhia (House of Peace) is accurate, the experience of living there for 10 days far surpassed our expectations for this lovely home. My husband and I really appreciated the house layout, especially the lush gardens, the openness and sense of privacy afforded by the design. The house is nicely situated so that during the day you have your choice of sun or shade on the lanais. The owner’s comfortable aesthetic is another added plus. Nicely appointed, nothing in the house feels too precious.
How delightful to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and wake up to a variety of bird calls along with winds gently rustling through palm trees. Most days we spent at the beach, hiking or golfing (we brought our own clubs), but we always looked forward to coming back to this house in early evening. Hale Maluhia is designed for living, meaning it’s a terrific entertaining space that is also great for relaxing, reading. (In all fairness, I should add that we brought our computers so we were able to work while enjoying this gorgeous location.)
Proximity to the Grand Hyatt and Shipwreck Beach is a big plus, especially if you have kids. You can pack a day bag, go for a wonderful hike, swim or boogie board at Shipwreck, then be home in few minutes.
We found the owner’s suggestions about what to visit extremely helpful as we’ve never been to Kauai.
Though we tend to select new trip destinations–it’s a big world,after all–we found Hale Maluhia so welcoming we definitely want to come back.

Fabulous Kauai Vacation Home
Absolutely fabulous Kauai home. Luxury with the ambience of gracious Hawaiian living. The best location in Poipu Kai resort; the property is surrounded on three sides by tropical gardens and spacious lawns. The location is ideal, only a few steps from Shipwreck Beach and the Grand Hyatt and less than ten minute garden walk to Poipu Beach. The house is superbly furnished and decorated reflecting the owners’ great taste and their love for their home. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped for a quick bite or gourmet meals. The lanai and internal gardens are exquisite, including a lovely stream course. Secluded pool and spa in a tropical garden. The private outdoor shower adds to the once-in-a-lifetime island experience. There is easy access to all of the adventures Kauai has to offer including the hikes along the beaches and cliffs along the southeast coast. This home is a superb refuge from one’s cares, truly a house of peace – Hale Maluhia. We’ve been coming to Hawaii for 40 years and this has been the most wonderful vacation – the best ever.
