Driving to Poipu, people always wonder “Did I rent a good house?” Drive four houses past Akala Pua, your first thought will be “WOW! The ocean is really close!” Then you may wonder where to park your car because the parking area for Akala Pua is beautiful lawn growing through concrete blocks. So drive right on the lawn! Walk up the meandering walk to the front porch, remove your shoes and step into the entry of this Hawaiian plantation style home and you immediately begin to see the great decorating and furnishings. Original oil paintings and natural wood trim and doors scream out “Hawaii!” You start to feel the gentle breezes that flow through and cool this house because every room has cross ventilation. Perhaps your children “OOH” and “AAH” when they see their room, and it really hits you, “This is better than home!” Walk up the meandering walk to the front porch and into the entry of this Hawaiian plantation style home and you immediately begin to see the great decorating and furnishings. Original Hawaiian oil paintings graces several walls. You will also start to feel the gentle breezes that flow through and cool this house because every room has cross ventilation. From the entry, turn left and walk upstairs into the great room with its twelve foot high vaulted wood-beam ceilings and ceiling fans. On the left is the living area with a panoramic view on three sides, decorated with a large rattan sofa, a two person rattan loveseat, and a comfortable rattan easy chair with ottoman. The entertainment center has a flat screen television with a DVD player and a CD stereo system with Hawaiian CD's provided. On the right is the glass dining table for eight with rattan chairs and the kitchen. The kitchen is modern and spacious with granite countertops. There is a GE range with microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator. From the kitchen sink you can see the whitewater ocean view past the dining table. The kitchen is completely stocked. In addition to all the pots, pans and cooking utensils you will need, there are matching sets of dishware, glassware, knives and silverware. Since you will need more than that to cook a meal, you will usually find aluminum foil, saran wrap, baggies, wax paper, coffee filters, paper napkins, paper towels, dish liquid and dishwasher soap, plus many other necessary kitchen supplies. Outside the great room is a 100 square foot roofed lanai with a table and four chairs that is great for morning breakfast or evening meals or just watching the sunsets. Back downstairs are the bedrooms, the laundry, a storage room, and the garage. On the far right side of the entry is the first master bedroom suite decorated island style. This bedroom has a sliding door on one wall and windows another wall plus a ceiling fan for great ventilation. The California king-size bed is firm and an original oil painting hangs over it. There are bedside tables, a full dresser, and a 19' television. The private bathroom for this bedroom has dual lavatories, a five-foot shower, a toilet and windows to keep it from steaming up. On the far left side of the entry is the second master bedroom suite nearly identical to the first one and also decorated island style. This bedroom has a sliding door on one wall and windows another wall plus a ceiling fan for great ventilation. The California king-size bed is firm and an original oil painting hangs over it. There are bedside tables, a full dresser, and a 19' television. The private bathroom for this bedroom has dual lavatories, a tub/shower with glass enclosure, a toilet and windows to keep it from steaming up.

This bedroom has its own bathroom across the hall with dual lavatories, a shower, toilet, and windows to keep it from steaming up. Past the bedrooms is the separate laundry room with washer, dryer and sink. Next to that is the storage room that holds the beach chairs, sand toys, and coolers. Previous guests may have left boogie boards and snorkeling gear. Outside Akala Pua is a 3000 square foot lawn with chaise lounges for sunbathing on those days when you don't want to make the 3 minute walk to the beach. The lawn is also home to a gas barbecue. Akala Pua shares this lawn with our two bedroom home, Ahe Lani. **This is a non-smoking house and it is never advertised on Craigslist. If you see it on Craigslist, please let us know.
