~ Have a wonderful Holiday! Mahalo!

Vacation at Ellie’s Koloa House at Poipu Kauai!

I’m Ellie and I have been providing affordable places to stay for vacationers on Kaua’i for the past 12 years. I invite you and your family to relax in my lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath Hawaiiana style house located in the heart of historic Old Koloa Town. Enjoy beautiful new hardwood floors and marble counter tops.

Ellie’s Koloa House is a 5-minute stroll to quaint shops and restaurants and only a few minutes drive to Poipu Beach Park or Shipwreck Beach.

Poipu Beach is famous for its sunny, mild weather and features some of the best snorkeling and swimming on the island, plus there is an area with protected waters suitable for families with small children. There are wonderful restaurants, boutique shopping and 2 golf courses in the Poipu area.

My charming, well-cared-for home boasts a beautiful seasonal tropical garden of plumeria, hibiscus, banana, papaya, ginger, ti, heliconia, avocado, lychee and an assortment of palms. There is an outside covered lanai with gas BBQ perfect for dining and relaxing.

Ellie’s Koloa House is conveniently located for exploring all of Kauai’s spectacular scenic wonders, beaches and numerous activities. Waimea Canyon is just 45 minutes to the west and the gorgeous North Shore is within an hours drive.

Please use VRBO, call me, email me or visit my website and use my easy form to discuss your upcoming holiday and answer any questions you might have. Please include your phone number. Also let me know the dates you are considering and the number in your party (adults/children). I am happy to put a courtesy hold on Ellie’s Koloa House while you explore your options.

If calling, please let me know your time zone since I live in Hawaii and we are 3-6 hours behind mainland hours.

                  About the owner: Aloha! I am Ellie Knopf and lucky to be living on Kauai since 1998. My husband and I have raised 4 Children here on this beautiful island.

It is a perfect blend of modern comfort in a traditional Hawaiian neighborhood. There is an outdoor living room for dining, relaxing, family get together, BBQ. Guests sometimes like to sleep outside. Guests often comment how they can relax in the privacy of a home environment.
