                    We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home, a real ocean view, lots of extra house and beach stuff, great weather...it rained all week on the north end of the Island, while Poipu was sunny. On our other visits to Poipu we stayed in a condo, we like the privacy of a house and the cost is not much more. Looks like there are many nice house rentals in the area but we hope to return to this house, mainly because of the owners prompt help in answering my questions and concerns and the excellent condition of the home.

                    After I returned home and read the review I quickly did while in Kauai, I saw that I had only given 4 stars instead of the excellent I meant to give and the house deserved. The house was wonderful and close to all the activities we wanted. The rooms were beautifully furnished. We appreciated the large grassy backyard for the little ones to play in. The shower in the backyard was appreciated when we arrived back from the beach all sandy. In addition, the owner went out of her way to help us with a problem that was not the fault of the property! ... and did it quickly. We would love to come back for another visit!

                    This home was just right for our group - Grandma & Grandpa, Mommy & Daddy, and a 4-1/2 old and a 2-1/2 year old. The parents and children were comfortable being in the two bedrooms upstairs and grandparents were in the downstairs bedroom. The kitchen was particularly well-equipped with cooking utensils, condiments in fridge. We added a toaster as one of us needed toast each day. Toward the end of our stay, we discovered by walking a short distance towards the Grand Hyatt, there was a path which provided quick access to Poi'pu Beach. The little ones wanted to be on that beach every day and the 4 year old discovered the joys of snorkeling there.

                    My husband and I had a wonderful 10 days at this Poipu house. We have stayed here many times before and always love going back. There is so much to do within walking distance (snorkeling, body surfing, walks along the beach and cliffs, turtle and whale watching right across the street, nice restaurants and and even a surf shop for rentals or gifts). Poipu is located midway between the north and far west side of the island so there are many beaches, hiking and adventures within 1.5 hours in either direction. Poipu also tends to have the best weather as it is on the lee side of the island. We had some rain and stormy weather but were still able to swim in the ocean every day due to calm waters on the south side most of the time. Wendy is always so helpful with questions about the best restaurants and beaches. The house is beautiful, comfortable and has all the amenities you will need to cook yummy Hawaiian meals at the house and hang out on the porch with views of the ocean. There is a closet full of beach essentials (nice chairs, umbrella, snorkeling gear and even boogie boards).

                    Went pre Christmas with 19 yo daughter and 86 yo mother-in-law. Top to bottom, it was wonderful. So many beaches and restaurants within a few minutes. Could even walk. I rented a one speed bike from Boss Frog and went all over the place. Wendy's suggestions all were spot on. Roy's restaurant was outstanding, Saturday night at Grand Hyatt was fun and beautiful. Short or long walks from the front door, all gorgeous. Beach chairs, boogie boards and cooler on the premise for great times at the beach. Did our shopping in Koloa, not sure if Costco is really necessary. Roosters at 4:00am not among the highlights but all part of the overall ambiance. Would return in a heartbeat, can't imagine a better location. Thanks, Wendy!

                    Our time in Kauai was made even more enjoyable by staying in this comfortable and well located home. We had access to everything in all directions. The house had all the comforts of home with an ocean thrown in. We especially enjoyed our cup of coffee in the early morning on the front porch. Poipu at its finest. If we get back to Kauai, we hope we can stay here again.

                    This house was amazing! The location of the house was perfect, well taken care of, no noise, and very comfortable. We took advantage of the kitchen for almost every meal and saved a ton of money! Plus having the boogie boards and beach gear was great. The house is right down the street (walking distance) from some of the most amazing beaches you will ever see. If you are debating between a hotel or another vacation property, stop looking and go with this one! You will love it!

                    I cannot say enough about the location of this property. Only a short drive or walk to amazing beaches with the best snorkeling on the island. Amazing restaurants nearby as well as decent grocery stores to buy food to prepare in the comfort of your own home. We hosted a family BBQ for 10 and had plenty of entertaining space on the deck. This house has all the comforts of home. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on the lsland after staying here.

                    We.had a wonderful experience renting this beautiful vacation home on Kauai. Centrally located, we were able to enjoy the beaches of Poipu, drive a short way to experience a catamaran cruise of the Na Pali coast, and another short drive to visit the Waimea Canyon. The pictures do not do this house justice! It is absolutely perfect. There is plenty of space for a family or small group. We were a family of five adults and it worked so well.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: We live in California but have grown to love Kauai. We bring the family there at least 2 times a year.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We had first loved the north Shore and almost purchased a house there. Then this house came available thru a friend. We were so happy that we picked Poipu. The weather is sunnier and there is many things to do.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love to go to the west side to surf. The beaches at Polihale are wonderful and secluded. The beach within walking distance is wonderful for families with small children. Poipu Beach Park is called Worlds Safest Beach! Hang out at the Grand Hyatt Spa for the day of classes and treatments. They have a day pass available to visitors.
