Aikane Kauai Beach House Guest Book
|Thank you for a
lovely stay in your beautiful and comfortable home. The layout of the
home was perfect for us. We had a great time exploring the island and
loved the beach. We were glad the house was so close to the best
beaches. Hopefully we will be back soon! (Marilyn, Michael, Brent and
We loved staying at the house in Poipu. It was very comfortable and lived up to the website photos. Chris and Teresa are wonderful hosts and we will come back to stay there again. Also we will recommend this house to family and friends who want to come to the "garden island of Kauai". This house was perfect for our family of 6 adults and two children. We were pleasantly surprised to find it completely furnished with everything that you could possibly need; including a coffee grinder to grind beans fresh every morning. Chris and Teresa are very thoughtful in furnishing their home with everything that you need for your stay. They even provide cd's of Hawaiian music for your listening pleasure! We really enjoyed sitting on the upper level lanai both morning and evening to watch the ocean just a hundred yards away (approximately) or walking down to the end of the street to watch the sunset. Fabulous view! Great location to Poipu Beach, where we spent a lot of time. It is a perfect beach for small children and also for water lovers of all ages. We were very happy to come to Kauai and recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a great vacation destination! (Rosa Family, February 2013)
When we visited here five years ago it was a dream of ours to return someday. Well dreams do come true and again it has been a wonderful week. It has been a blast! Thanks and we hope to return. (Watson Family, October 2011)
This was our 2nd time returning to your house. Again it was the best! We saw whales spouting and dolphins. Swimming with the turtles is always amazing! We are sad to go home but I'm sure we'll be back with more of our family soon! Mahalo Chris. (Morse Family, April 2011)
We had such a good
time on this trip. The house was just perfect and you---you're
fantastic! We used all your hints to find the best sources of food, etc.
We were so pleased with the furnishings and supplies at the house. You
really thought of every detail.
If we're able to return to Kauai next year, we'd really like to stay in
your house again. We'll be in touch.
Best wishes and thanks again.
Happy New Year! Though everyone is settled back into our regular routines, we are still basking in the glow of our Hawaii vacation. I wrote a little entry in the journal in the house but want to write you to thank you again for providing the setting for a great vacation.
What a fabulous location. Close enough to the view and sound of the surf but away from the traffic of a well traveled road. Thank you for providing the snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella. Your attention to detail is very much appreciated. The beds were very comfortable and the master shower was a nice surprise. I loved the fully equipped kitchen.
May you have a joyous and peace-filled year. Until we meet again........
Mahalo nui loa,
Hopefully you will be reading this entry when you first arrive. If you have stayed here before, you know what a fantastic place AIKANE Kauai is and what great guy Chris is. If this is your first visit you have a treat in store for you. If you plan to line up island activities like ziplining, horseback riding or power hang gliding you better do it right away. We have been to other Hawaiian islands, but the people of Kauai have been the most gentle and giving people. Please treat them the same in return. Now just enjoy.

Excellent stay (no surprises). Would certainly recommend your lovely home to anyone. Thank you for all the extra touches.
Chris, you thought of almost everything a perfect vacation should be! You have an excellent accommodation, fully equipped homey place and great location. Unparalleled! I love the North Shore but Poipu is the best place to be. Overall your home is five stars.
Mahalo Chris, you exceeded our expectation.

Our family absolutely LOVED it here! IT really becomes a “home away from home.” The place had everything! We went shopping for some things, but luckily anything we forgot was right here at “home.” We woke up a couple morning to whales breaching and sea turtles, got some good video! The beach and shops were just a short walk and the kids loved it! This place is absolutely perfect!
Thanks Chris! Jacksons and Alcantara families
Chris- thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! It was perfect for our family. We all had a great time seeing and touring around your island paradise – Mahalo! This will be a family vacation our kids will surely tell their kids about. It’s sad to go but we will definitely try to come back again…. Soon!
Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo,
Chris, What a wonderful trip! We did everything from snorkeling and kayaking to Botanical Gardens and boogie boarding! We felt like kids again and never laughed so hard in our lives while boogie boarding on Brennecke Beach! Your home is “GREAT” and has all of the comforts of home. We hope to be back again soon.

Jerry & Maggie, Indiana: We had a fabulous Vacation in Kauai staying at this house. It was everything that it was advertised to be. The house itself is beautiful and clean. We enjoyed sitting on the Lanai and watching the ocean. The house is equipped with everything you need: coolers, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc. Would definitely stay there again if possible.
Alyson, California: Thank you for such an easy, wonderful, and memorable stay on Kauai. Your house contributed so much to our comfort and relaxation. The family had the experience of a lifetime, creating many great memories. We sure plan to be back.
Kimi, Hawaii: Not only were we pleased
with the location and facilities amenities (my niece from
|Mike & Patsy, Vancouver, WA: We would highly recommend this vacation rental, and give especially high marks to its owner/manager, Chris. The house was everything that we expected it to be, exactly as it appeared on the website. It was so well equipped that it really felt like a home away from home. Chris was so friendly, from the time we made the reservation through our time on the island. He even came over to cut down ripe bananas for us! We were thoroughly impressed with the whole experience. We felt like we were living the Hawaiian dream-- at least for our two weeks there! Thanks, Chris, for making our stay such a special one. You are one in a million!||
Kevin and Alison, Colorado: We had a terrific time and the house was the perfect arrangement for us. We really appreciated your attention to detail - you made us feel really comfortable so that we didn't have to worry about the little things. We got a lot of use out of the guidebooks, boogie boards, etc., and your shopping recommendations were right on target. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable that we actually wrote down the make of the mattress! (or was it just Kauai in general that made us sleep so well?) Anyway, thanks for making our first 'internet vacation' a success.
Kelly and Shane, Oregon: Everything was
perfect...the house, the boogie boards you had available, the area...everything!
Thanks again for all your help, wisdom and great accommodations. I hope we can
return again. Aloha and mahalo.
Meg & Greg, Los Angeles: We have loved every minute of our stay in your beautiful home. With all the comforts and amenities this vacation was over the top for us! Thank you for all the details. We'll be back!
Ron, Bev & Shirley from Western Australia: We love everything about this place. It was much more than we expected. Thanks for all the little extras such as the beach shoes, snorkels, masks and boogie boards - we used them everyday. The location had something for everyone. We will be back soon we hope. Chris, thanks for the surfing advice.
Gary: What a great place you have created. You thought of everything. The surfing at Pakala was GREAT! I was really able to unwind in this paradise. Your suggestion of dinner at the Beach House at sunset was great. We fell in love with the tiles in the master shower so we ordered some for our home. Thanks for everything!
Wanda, Jon and girls (Mary Kate, Maggie,
Madeleine): Thank you for sharing your beautiful house and island. We had
such a great time and enjoyed all Kauai has to offer. The girls loved the
boogie boarding & the waves. We plan to come back & hopefully bring family
Chris, It's been 30 years since I was here in Poipu & Kauai running Camp Hawaiian Surf - it was great then and, again, now. We had a ball! Went to Poipu, Polihale, Kokee, Waimea, Hanapepe, Kekaha, Salt Pond, Kipu, Nawiliwili Harbor, Lydgate, Fern Grotto, etc. Played golf at Wailua, Poipu Bay & Kiahuna. A little windy but a great time. We snorkeled & boogie boarded.
Sandy & Rick, Katy, TX: "We had the most wonderful time! Kauai is totally amazing. Superbly breathtaking! Having coffee every morning on the patio with its spectacular view was my favorite thing. Totally peaceful! Wow!"
Mai & Alex, San Francisco: "We had a wonderful time. We were delighted with your hospitality. We will be back next year!"
Gary & Family, Pismo Beach: "Oh how I will miss my wonderful home away from home! Had a great time. This house is so beautiful. What a great place you've created, thought of everything. Here are some of our highlights: the helicopter ride, Queen's Pond, Kipu Falls. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable."
Kevin & Tami & Ashley & Blake, Seattle: "This location is optimum! Close to a great swimming beach, great boogie
boarding and great restaurants. Thanks for stocking the house with all necessary
items (chairs, umbrellas, booties) for proper beach fun. Not to mention the
drink cooler - what a lifesaver! We'll be back! As if all of this isn't enough,
your hospitality is truly exemplary. I'll recommend this house to my friends. Thanks so much."
Dave & Kristen, Solano Beach: "Thank you for providing us with such a beautiful beach house in Kauai! Aikane Kauai was the perfect place to bring our new daughter."
Jamie & Paul, San Diego: "This house had it all for 2 young bachelor surfers (including killer waves!). Playing dominoes on the patio while BBQing after long days at the beach surfing..."
Brad & Schaelene & Christopher & Emma, Sacramento: "We had a great time! Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home! We loved staying here. It was wonderful to wake up to singing birds in the morning."
Emily & Richard, Massachusettes:
"We came here for our daughter's wedding. It was such a great vacation! I
love the house."
