The Space

Have your own private piece of paradise!

Centrally located on Kauai’s beautiful South shore, your Kauai home-away-from home is only 10 minutes away from the world renowned beaches of Poipu. You will find great restaurants, shops, markets, sightseeing and entertainment just minutes away. This house is a perfect alternative to an expensive vacation rental in Poipu. The Napali Coast Boat Tour is a must if you come to Kauai. The Boat Harbor where the Napali Coast and Sunset tours start is only 10 minutes away. If you enjoy hiking then the scenic Waimea Canyon is 25 minutes away. Its fantastic location is ideal for the traveler who wants to be in a central area where they can easily explore the rest of the island.

The spacious home will accommodate up to 4 guests comfortably. We offer beach gear, surfboards, gas grill, your own full kitchen and outdoor living area to relax, all at an amazing rate.

We also provide free cable television, high speed wifi, 3 parking spots, fresh fruit trees for you based on the season; mango, passion fruit, guava, avocado, orange, lemon and more.

This private and separate 1 bedroom home offers ocean and mountain views. Surrounded by lush tropical trees, this home is a short 20 minute drive from the airport and city of Lihue.

If you’re looking for all the comforts of home, privacy, central location, cool mountain breezes with an ocean view, look no further.

Hosts Kev and Moni speak fluent English, Portuguese and Spanish. And once you book with us, we will send you our list of the island's best hikes, beaches, restaurants, activities, and more, we call it "Kevin's List".

Baby friendly, we have a pack and play, mobile crib available for children, No charge on renting the crib.

Please note we have a set of stairs to the rental home, and all the beach gear is downstairs and free for you to use and enjoy.

Aloha and welcome to your home away from home!

Guest Access

Surf boards and all the beach gear you need; chairs, 2 snorkel sets, towels, boogie boards, ice chests, floats, surfboard racks, grills, umbrellas and more.

Interaction with Guests

I try to greet all the guests to carry luggage and offer a hand with gear and groceries. There is a small flight of steps to the private villa and the lanai (porch) is great for enjoying the views and fresh air.

Other Things to Note

We have a friendly dog named Bobby and a shy but lovable cat named Scooter. We try to keep them away from the rental but guests always feed and love on them anyways.

We can keep them inside and away at your request.

  • We loved our stay with Kevin and Monica! They were wonderful hosts, and their home was just beautiful. The photos look nice, but it was even better to see this place in person. Everything was well decorated and very welcoming. The apartment was spacious and we appreciated the local guidebooks and recommendations they left for us. We enjoyed chatting with Kev and Moni and hope we can stay here again sometime!

  • Our 2 week stay with Kevin and Monica was awesome! Kevin & Monica are extremely friendly and hospitable hosts. They exceeded our expectations during our stay and ensured all our needs were met. They even had us over for the World Cup opener, and fed us home made chili and Brazilian chocolate cake! You don't get that kind of service elsewhere. They respected our privacy, yet were always available when needed, and stopped to chat and have a beer. Having never used airbnb before I was somewhat apprehensive to stay in the same place for 2 weeks, but I am glad I took the chance. The house is kid-proof (our 3.5 and 1 year old can attest to that), and Kevin and Monica are very child friendly!

    To our surprise, the home stays nice and cool on the hot and humid summer days thanks to being planned very well and having lots of windows to air it out. Expect to find some condiments (even beer!) left by previous visitors, and basic necessities well stocked.

    The home is well located within a short drive to the popular Poipu Beach, and lesser known (but in our opinion nicer) Salt Pond Beach. There are two Big Saves for groceries within a 10 minute drive, and a coffee shop and an excellent pizza restaurant within walking distance. We loved the fact the home is in a quiet neighborhood, allowing for a gorgeous walk in the evening followed (email hidden) on the balcony to wind down a busy day. Make sure to take advantage of the provided beach toys to make the most of your beach time in Kaua'i.

    Overall, we are more than pleased with our stay at Kev and Moni's home. We'll definitely return to Kaua'i in the future, and would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks again for hosting us!

  • Kevin and Monica were so sweet and wonderful. My wife got to hold their toddler and he was super cute! Martha is a very sweet and friendly person. We got to meet their cat, and he was so sweet and vocal. We didn't want to leave either but unfortunately, our time was up. We also would like to be lifelong friends.

  • We had a wonderful time in the apartment, it's the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the day after an active day on Kauai. It was very easy with Kev and Moni to arrange the arrival. It was great to receive a list with things to do and preferred hikes and beaches. All in all it was a great and unforgettable stay.

  • Kevin was a gracious host (I only briefly met Moni) who went out of his way to help with the needs we had due to traveling with a toddler. He always provided answers/solutions to our questions/issues. The apartment was spacious and met our needs well. The area is very quiet but still well-located for visiting anywhere on the southern part of the island.

  • Nice and cozy appartement in Kalaheo, Kauai. Kev & Moni are really nice people and easy going. We had a wonderful time in their appartment and in Kauai.
    The appartement was very clean and very well furnished with everything you need to cook.
    Kev had to do some roof work but he respected our privacy by starting late in the morning for us!
    Thanks very much for everything and see you next time!

  • Our stay with Kev and Moni was wonderful. We really enjoyed the central location. It was close to the main beaches but off the main drag. Having a full kitchen and separate bedroom was ideal for traveling with a child. Kev and Moni were super friendly and were there to help whenever we needed. They never seemed bothered by our early riser, vocal, and very energetic 2.5 year old. We didn't see them much but felt like they could be old friends. The house was equipped with almost everything you needed including beach stuff which really came in handy. We had a great time!

  • Kev und Moni sind sehr gute Gastgeber. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und bietet viel Platz. Sie war ideal für uns als kleine Familie. Unser Sohn (19 Monate) hat in seinem Babybett gut geschlafen und hat sich sehr über das kleine Spielzeug bei unserer Ankunft gefreut. Schön war auch das gemeinsame Spielen mit dem Sohn von Kev und Moni. Die Unterkunft liegt ideal zur Erkundung der Insel. Wir können die Wohnung sehr empfehlen. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.
    ... Kev and Moni are great hosts. The apartment was very clean and offers plenty of space. It was ideal for us as small family.

The apartment is ideally situated for exploring the island. We highly recommend it. Thank you for the great time and for sharing your home with us.

  • Nice home, great upcountry location. Kev was very friendly and helpful. Had a great list of favorites, which was good for first time visitors to the island. Was quick on TV malfunction to make right, and checked in to make sure everything was going well. Kev and Moni gifted us fruit and homemade candies. Great folks!

About
Aloha! Welcome to Hale Aloha, our little House of Love. We love it here and so will you! We are beach bums that escaped the cold and amazing wonders of Colorado to live and work in Kauai. Kevin is from Germany and Monica is from Brazil. We love to travel, eat new foods, learn new languages and cultures. Our best time is when we are hosting guests or being hosted. We cannot live without hiking, relaxing beach days, a clean home, Indian and Italian foods and game nights with friends. If we were stranded on an island (funny as we do live on an island, pun intended) Kevin would want a surfboard and peanut butter. Monica would want chocolate and coconut water. We love comedy themed movies. One of our favorites is Love Actually, and Monte Python's Quest for the Holy Grail, The Boondock Saints is also a hit on St. Patrick's day and Home Alone for Christmas with family. Our motto is best described as a combination of John 3:30 and Hebrews 11. Another great motto for us is "Carpe Diem" Seize the Carpe- Haha, I mean Day. We also offer surf lessons and customized tours, just ask. We welcome all guests who are respectful. In return, we offer you the best of privacy and amenities. Your stay with us is just that, focused on you. Let us know what you need and we will help make your vacation YOUnique!
