About this listing

Manako Hale Estate-Gorgeous fully remodeled house in beautiful Poipu 5 minute walk to beach.

The space

With a full new remodel in 2015, this quintessential Hawaiian beach cottage and guesthouse, thoughtfully designed in old plantation style, will comfortably host you and your ohana just a 5-minute walk away from Brennecke’s Beach and award-winning Poipu Beach.

Once you`ve settled in, relax with a book on the screened-in lanai while the kids play out in the lush, tropical yard. With two living rooms, each with a flat-screen cable TV, the adults can keep up with their favorite shows while the kids watch a movie, or bring everyone together for family game night.

Walk to Brennecke’s Beach Broiler for happy hour, then fire up the grill at home when dinnertime hits. The open kitchen has all the essentials, along with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and prep space for multiple cooks to whip up side dishes. With an eat-in bar and a dining room table for six, there’s room for the group.

Three beautiful bedrooms sleep eight in two king-size beds, two twin-size beds (can be converted to a king), and a sleeper sofa in the living room. For a couple looking for more privacy, the Manako Hale guesthouse is a charming one-bedroom sanctuary next door with its own kitchen, BBQ, and full bath. Plus, you’ll enjoy exclusive ocean views from both the second-floor lanai and your plush king-size bed.

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets. Plus, you`ll enjoy easy check-in and added security from our keyless Point Central Lock system.

This property is absolutely beautiful! Both houses were spotless, updated, comfortable, and beautifully furnished. Just as gorgeous as the pictures! Ocean view from both houses. The bathrooms were luxurious - and they even had towel turtles made up for us in each bathroom! Felt like we were at a resort. No A/C, but with the windows open and all fans on (they also provided floor fans in addition to the ceiling fans) we stayed quite comfy. The guest house got a little toasty during the day since it's on the second story but the main house stayed comfortable all day and night. Both kitchens were well stocked, clean with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. On Alm the paperwork it will suggest a place to rent beach gear - we realized on our very last day that there was actually gear (chairs, boogie boards, etc) underneath the guest house that we could've been using all along. Several beautiful beaches within walking distance (about a five minute walk) - brennecke beach has big waves, Poipu beach has a very calm "baby pool" area as well as good snorkeling... and amazing wildlife! We saw multiple sea turtles sunning themselves on the sand as well as several monk seals resting on the beach! Wow! If you just continue walking down the coast you come upon beach after beautiful beach, each with their own unique characteristics. We did often drive the two minutes to the beach because parking is plentiful and who wants to carry all their beach gear farther than they have to? Sunset is beautiful from the beach. The area is definitely a resort area, which meant we got to enjoy a drink at a beachfront bar as well as some more upscale dining. If you drive into town, there are numerous delicious non-resort restaurants. We felt Poipu was a great location - only an hour and a half to the north shore and about 30-40 minutes to the start of Waimea Canyon (a must!), as well as 20-30 minutes from the airport and Lihue. We highly recommend this property!

We loved the location. Its right next to the beach the yard is incredibly beautiful and its very quite. We will definitely be staying again when we go back. None of us wanted to leave it was the perfect home away from home.

It's just what the pictures show. Very spacious and clean. It was great that we could all be together and the separate bedrooms were nice for privacy. The location was perfect for what we did. Loved that we could walk to the beach but then also be to other places in a reasonable time. I would definitely recommend staying here.

This home could not have been more perfect for our stay in Kaua'i! We were all very impressed by GVR's hospitality & the house itself exceeded our expectations. It was very well equipped with everything we needed during our stay & was absolutely spotless. It is within less than a 5 minute walk to Brennecke's Beach & Poipu Beach - which are two excellent spots to watch sunsets & see sea turtles! We would not hesitate to stay here again & will be recommending it to anyone travelling to Kaua'i. Mahalo!
