I allow children 8 years and up. Pua Hale has lots of fragile items including real custom made sliding shoji doors which could get damaged by children. If there is any damage to the doors they will have to be repaired and the renter is responsible for that.
There is no smoking allowed in or around Pua Hale. We appreciate quiet at night since this is a residential neighborhood. We have very friendly neighbors.
From Dec 20, 2017 - Jan 15, 2018 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
I am a painter and professional photographer and have won awards in many shows. My work is in many private collections as well as the State of Hawaii I have been active in Hawaii's arts community since 1964. I have degrees in graphic design and communication and my husband was an engineer and started Kauai's water department. I was born in Hawaii and my family has been here since the 1870s. I have three grown children & 10 grandchildren. Two small dogs and two cats share my home. I am an avid animal lover and volunteer with the local humane society as often as I can. My husband, Walter Briant,(deceased 2008) and I built this home as a very special vacation rental at Poipu Beach. It was built in a Japanese style and is furnished with Japanese antique tansus with bronze cranes in the garden. We built it on our 1/2 acre property at the Poipu Beach resort area but it is on a dead end street so is quiet though very near to all resort amenities.
I have traveled all over the world and continue to do so.
