By agreeing to the rental terms online you are entering into a binding contract with Hawaii Life and authorizing Hawaii Life to charge your credit card amounts due.

Initial Payments: Initial deposits are due upon booking. The initial deposit plus travel insurance if you accept coverage, is automatically charged on your credit card upon booking. In the event the Initial Payment is not received, Hawaii Life reserves the right to cancel the reservation with no further notice to guest. Payments are held in a non-interest bearing Client Trust Account. Hawaii Life retains the right to retain the Initial Payment, or a portion thereof in the event of cancellation. **THE NAME ON THE RESERVATION MUST MATCH THE NAME ON THE CREDIT CARD GIVEN FOR PAYMENT.

Balance Payments: The balance of all payments, plus applicable taxes, shall be paid ninety (90) days prior to your check-in date and will be charged to the card on file unless otherwise arranged. Reservations not paid in full by the balance due date shall be subject to cancellation. If your booking is made within ninety (90) days of arrival, full payment will be charged to your credit card upon booking. *Please do not send post-dated checks, checks are processed when received. Any fees associated with a post dated check will be charged to the guest.

Property Protection Program: Our properties and their contents are valuable and reasonable care should be taken with them during their rental. Our company, including the participating rental property homeowners we represent (“we”, “our”, “us”), is an additionally-insured participant in a Property Protection Program that reimburses certain costs for unintentional accidental damage to our properties during their rental occupancy. We charge renters a non-refundable administrative fee to defer our costs for Program participation. If, during a renter’s occupancy, renter or a member of renter’s party or renter’s guest causes any damage to real or personal property of our rental property as a result of unintentional accidental acts or omissions, renter must notify our property management office at that time, and before check-out. For rentals that exceed the coverage limits of the Program, we may collect a supplementary refundable (net of any damage reimbursement) security deposit from renter upon check-in. Renter is liable to us for any damages caused by renter or a member of renter’s party or renter’s guest that are not reimbursed to us or exceed the maximum per-incident limit of our coverage, and the credit card on file and/or any collected security deposit will be charged. Special or large event or pet deposits may be charged in certain situations. This Program is not offered or available for sale to renters.

Refundable Security Deposit: In addition to the damage insurance you will be required to pay a Security Deposit. The Security Deposit refund is processed 14 days after departure unless damages or missing items are reported. Hawaii Life retains the right to withhold the Security Deposit (“Security Deposit”) after expiration or termination of Guest’s tenancy, and to deduct from the Security Deposit costs for extraordinary expenses or damages including, but not limited to, damage to the Property, loss and/or misuse of personal property (e.g., internet modems/cables), excessive laundry and/or cleaning, staining of linens/towels/carpets/furniture, loss of keys and/or garage door openers, rearranging of furniture, or long distance or per call telephone charges.

Interruption in services within the Property and/or inclement weather during the Reservation Dates shall not serve to void or cancel the Vacation Rental Agreement or any portion thereof.

Cute cozy cottage about 0.8 miles from the beach! Very central to the south side of the island. Poipu beach was perfect for our family...shade, sun, picnic benches, baby beach, snorkeling, surfing/body boarding. Even saw a few monk seals and turtles there. Kahea has a few beach items stocked in the garage so it was (URL HIDDEN) need to rent. Even 2 bicycles! The house itself was clean and as described. Parking can be tight if you have a larger sized car but we drove a Nissan Versa so getting in and out was a breeze. There was air condition in only the bedrooms and the bedrooms are separated by the main living areas so there is privacy at the end of the day. There is no soap and shampoo so you do need to bring those. Also towels were (URL HIDDEN) conserve and reuse! All in all, a cute and clean traditional cottage central to most touristy things in the south.

Very convenient for Poipu and comfortable. Nice to have a house rather than just a condo. The bikes are a fun way to cruise around Poipu. Thanks!

We enjoyed our stay here! There is a great supply of beach gear to use and the pool available was nice. We really enjoyed walking to the beach and the pool, about 5-10 minutes from the property. It's proximity to main roads, the walking path and other properties meant that it was a bit noisy in the mornings and during the day, but always quieted down at night.

Two couples stayed comfortably with plenty of privacy and shared space. It is located on a walking trail that takes you directly to beaches and is a short drive to anything you need. The lanai is private and great to sit on with a charcoal grill (make sure you pick up charcoal in town none of the grocery stores carried any) It was easy to control temperature in the rooms and public areas (ac in bedrooms) Kahea is super responsive with communication. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants to be close to it all and feel like you are home.

This is a great spot for visiting poipu. It is a pleasant walk on sidewalks away from streets to both of the major beaches in poipu (shipwreck and poipu park) both are only 5-10 min walks. Both bedrooms are comfortable with AC.

The place are just what we want: Hawaiian beach house experience. 10 min walk to the beach, near restaurants and supermarkets. Boards, snorkel gear and all what you need for a family trip to Kauai. The comunication with Kahea works perfectly.

We loved this little cottage! It was really nice to come home to such a sweet spot after a long day on the beach. We especially loved that the house came with boogie boards and snorkel gear!
