Ocean views from the lanai of the Lani kai Vacation rental in Poipu

The essence of Hawai‘i can be found in a luxury oceanfront vacation rental on Kauai.  Balmy sea breezes, the smell of refreshing salt air and the sound of waves crashing outside of your bedroom window are only a few of the reasons why an oceanfront vacation home should be your first choice for accommodations. On an island with vastly different weather patterns, there are many options of where to stay to make the most of your vacation.

The Sunny South Side

The town of Poipu on the south side of Kauai is all about the beaches, surf, sand, and clear blue water. Officially a resort destination, visitors flock to Poipu for its great weather, accommodations and variety of activities, such as diving, snorkeling, boating, and zip lining.

Alekona Kauai offers two luxury oceanfront vacation homes in Poipu. The Lani Kai Cottage– a quaint cottage landscaped by the lava rock shoreline and stunning sunset views. Completely modern with a large kitchen and updated appliances and furniture, this home has a charm that is reminiscent of Kauai’s sugar plantation period. Nearly every room in the home has a view of the ocean. Enjoy watching the sunset from your very own lanai and then bathing under the stars in the outdoor shower at night.

The expansive three bedroom and four bathroom Spouting Horn Cottage is perfect for larger families or a couples getaway. A perfectly manicured lawn beckons you to sunbathe in privacy and is perfect for an evening barbeque. Spacious bedrooms, all with ocean views, feel like every room is a master bedroom.

Guests of the Lani Kai Cottage and Spouting Horn Cottage are provided access the exclusive Poipu Beach Athletic Club, which features a swimming pool, daily yoga classes, pickleball and tennis courts, and a weight room plus cardio room to workout.


The Garden-like North Shore

The towns of Princeville, Hanalei, Ha‘ena and Moloa‘a is where luxury and affluence intersect with homes perched on sea cliffs or directly adjoining a secluded beach. North shore has long been the chosen destination for many of the rich and famous, who appreciate its beautiful scenery and small town laid back vibe.  Although mostly noted for grey skies and rainy weather, the North Shore can be a gem when the weather is right.


The Happening East Side

Kauai’s coconut coast of Wailua and Kapaa is sprinkled with eateries and boutiques throughout the heart of town, an eight-mile long bike and walking path, and a long sandy coastline. While there are not many oceanfront vacation rentals in this town, most are condominium style rentals, there is much to do and its central location makes it an ideal place to stay.


The Old Town Charm of the West Side

Rustic charm and seclusion can be found in the town of Waimea and Kekaha on the west side of Kauai. This is for those who want to get away from it all – nightlife is next to nonexistent on this side of the island, with shops closing in the early evening and just a handful of restaurants. Instead, you will find mile after mile of white sand beach for strolling at sunset and glorious starry nights.


One of the many reasons that people come to Kauai are for the white sand beaches with crystal blue warm water. Staying in an oceanfront vacation home will give you lasting memories of the pristine Kauai weather and keep you looking forward to returning again and again to this tropical paradise.
