Lush backyard lawn surrounds the living area and downstairs master suite
Just 100 steps to the ocean and just four houses to world-famous Brennecke's Beach
WOW is what most people say the first time they see the great room
The kitchen faces into the great room so everyone is part of the action all the time.
The spacious downstairs master bedroom opens onto the covered lanai
The equally spacious upstairs bedroom has a vaulted wood ceiling and an ocean view balcony.
The charming third bedroom has a wonderful ocean view.
Stunning view from the upstairs master bedroom
Fragrant Plumeria trees hide the house without hinting about the beauty inside

Overview
Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Poipu, Kauai, Hawaii
Maluhia ma ka Honua means "Peace on Earth" and that is what you will find in this beautiful house located just a 40 second walk to the ocean and just four houses from famous Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park.

The question everyone asks themselves as they leave the airport and drive to Poipu is “Did I rent a good house?” Just before you arrive at Maluhia ma ka Honua, your first thought will be “WOW! The ocean is really close!” As you turn up Nalo Road you can't really see the house well because the beautiful white Plumeria trees are in bloom and they hide the house front a bit. You open the front door, remove your shoes, step into the entry, and then it hits you "WOW! This house is big and gorgeous and well furnished!" Then it really hits you, “This is better than home!”

Like most people, you immedi...

Reviewed 4 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This was a large and beautiful home. It was fully stocked with everything we needed for our trip. It is one house from the ocean and a 3 minute walk to a sandy beach with nice waves for body surfing or boogie boarding. Great views from upstairs and several areas to sit outside, which allows you to have sun or...

Management response:

Thank you for the kind words, Randy. Valorie and I try hard to help our guests have a great vacation. Please return often! We offer return guests a 5% discount for each return visit, up to 20% off the fifth and subsequent visits. Since we don't raise rents much, this becomes a great bargain! Buzz and Valorie Wisda

We spent a week in this incredibly well maintained, up to date, home. The location is fantastic - just a short walk to the beaches -- and is tucked away on a side street for additional privacy. The house is exactly as pictured on the web. It is spacious, offering both privacy and yet communal gathering space. The wrap around...

About the neighbourhood
Maluhia ma ka Honua is just a 40 second stroll down to the ocean's edge at a small bay filled with turtles. From there it is just a short walk past four houses to reach Brennecke's Beach in Poipu Beach Park. A little further, 2 minutes walk, is the beach and lifeguard at Poipu Beach Park, and just past that is the Waiohai Beach.

Brennecke's Beach is a white sand beach with excellent waves for boogie boarding or body surfing, but the hurricane that passed by in 2015 removed most of the sand under the water. Poipu Beach Park has a nice beach and "Kid Pond" with knee-deep water and no waves. The Waiohai Beach has deeper, calm water excellent for snorkeling, swimming, and surfing.
