Regency II, unit #620, is our Tranquility Base in Kauai. As you read through the description of our home you can be assured of two things. First, we really care about our Kauai Vacation Home, and we want you to also enjoy the many benefits of staying at Tranquility Base. This is our only vacation home, we own it because we love staying here. And second, in the true spirit of HomeAway/VRBO, on this listing you are dealing directly with the owners, not some third party web-site rental agent. Come stay in our home and we would be delighted to add your name to our growing list of returning Tranquility Base guests.
What follows is a detailed description of the Tranquility Base experience. Or you can skip this for now, and just click to our Guest Reviews to validate that you can book our Tranquility Base with the confidence that you and your family will have a great Poipu Vacation experience.
This beautiful, airy condominium (1438 sq. ft. of living space) is comfortably furnished as a complete vacation home. Better still (and unlike older Poipu units) our home has Central Air Conditioning, a must in Poipu summer's. For your 2014 Poipu Vacation, renovation of our home is now complete, including newly painted rooms, new plush carpeting, and in the livingroom relax on our beautiful new Cambridge sofa and loveseat.
The living room and dining area have vaulted ceilings and open to your outdoor lanai. Sip your morning coffee on the covered lanai and experience the pink, mauve and orange of a beautiful Kauai sunrise, as warm soft trade winds clatter in the palm trees that surround you. From the comfort of your private lanai, vistas overlook the quiet Regency II pool, and beyond to the expansive landscaped lawns of the Poipu Greenbelt, as the walking path gently curves down towards the Grand Hyatt and Shipwreck Beach.
From right outside your front door, a gentle Poipu Greenbelt stroll in about 5 minutes brings you to the beautiful gardens and waterfalls of the Grand Hyatt and Shipwreck Beach. Or a stroll down the greenbelt path in the opposite direction (to the west) in about 5 minutes will bring you to Poipu Beach, consistently rated Best Beach in Hawaii.
Relaxation and comfort begins in rooms of soothing earth-tone colors with a sense of openness and plenty of natural light, New window treatments offer privacy, tasteful artwork adds a sense of serenity, and ceiling fans in each room insure that all rooms remain consistently air conditioned to your preferences..
The living room provides a comfortable Cambridge sofa and loveseat in high grade knit fabric of muted tropical tones, with side chairs. And in the enclosed entertainment center is a 40' LCD Samsung, Blu-Ray and surround sound. Wireless internet is available to keep you connected and in the spring of 2014 was upgraded to deliver impressive speed. Also, centrally located is an iPad docking station, so feel free to bring your own vacation soundtrack.
The kitchen is modern with deep rich granite counter tops providing plenty of space for whipping up your culinary creations, and you will have available what you need in pots and pans that we replace regularly. We also provide an assortment of serving bowls, large wooden salad bowl and tupperware.This kitchen is fully equipped, with full-sized refrigerator with ice-maker, microwave, dishwasher, range-oven, dinnerware, barware, small appliances. If you prefer, you can barbecue your ''catch of the day'' in the convenient, well maintained gas grill near the pool. The kitchen opens into a dining room with vaulted ceilings where soft, warm light from a hanging chandelier, can be dimmed to accent a romantic evening dinner, as the lighted path of the Poipu Greenbelt stretches out below you.
The master bedroom has a private lanai encircled by flowering Plumeria trees, with tropical garden views of the pathway leading down to Poipu Beach. You will enjoy a well furnished, comfortable king bed with a tasteful bedroom set and matching lamps and a new Samsung flat screen TV enclosed in Tommy Bahama armour. The spacious master bathroom with travertine floors have both a jacuzzi tub and large walk in tiled shower. A large mirror and double sinks, with professional make-up mirror and hair dryer for your use make it ease to transition from swimsuits to evening dress for a special night out.
The second bedroom, also located on the entry level, has two twin beds, (which can be converted to a queen) and lush views of banana leaves that enhance the tropical tree-house ambiance of this private location. Also on the entry level is the additional full bath tub/shower located opposite the second bedroom. In the back hallway is a convenient new Maytag stackable washer and dryer, as well as a storage room for beach gear.
The upstairs loft bedroom is bright and cheery, furnished with a king bed and a new bedroom set and matching lamps.

About the owner: Aloha, we have been frequent visitors to Kauai for 25 years with many worldly adventures in between. We now consider our lovely Tranquility Base to be exactly that, providing all the comforts and conveniences required to enjoy valuable vacation time in Poipu, always creating a memorable experience which is restful and rejuvenating, as well as active and exciting with so much to do. We open our home to you! Our description of 'Tranquility Base' may have captured your imagination and triggered that nagging sense of déjà vu, and asking yourself, .. 'Tranquility Base', where have I heard that before? If you are old enough to remember the evening of July 20th, 1969 when a Nation, held their collective breath as the Apollo 11 Astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin guided the Eagle to the surface of the moon. After what seemed like an eternity, the radio transmission crackled back to Earth, “Houston, this is Tranquility Base. The Eagle has landed.” And from that moment on a generation of adventurers were emboldened to search out the unique and the wonderful in every corner of our planet. And for us, of all the amazing places we have explored, we always love coming back to our Tranquility Base in beautiful Poipu.
Why the Owner Chose Regency:
Buying the best Poipu condo is not an easy task. Over the years we had rented several Poipu condos and in searching to buy we looked at dozens of units. We found many condo units had drawbacks; older properties closer to the ocean facing east or west, in our experience, can be hot in the AM or PM sun and lack AC. We were shown many nice units but the views would overlook a parking lot - good people watching I guess. Some high end condo complexes in the evenings were not so enchanted with excessive bright light pollution from the resort next door. And for some units, built more recently, the buildings lack a spaciousness, and we discovered the view from one lanai can be of your neighbor’s lanai 30 feet away. We found 620 Regency II to be the perfect fit for us, and had none of the drawbacks we had discovered during our search. Regency II, with newer construction, upgraded kitchen, central air conditioned, lovely grounds, well located, provides the perfect, quiet tropical ambiance. We can't wait to come back! The previous owners of 620 Regency were involved in the development of Regency II. Experienced in judgement of the inherent value of well-located real estate, they had reserved for themselves just one unit, 620 Regency, out of the 84 units of Regency II, the unit that was clearly the “pick of the litter”. We love a top floor, corner unit in the back of the complex, with greenbelt vistas from both of the lanai, and the sounds of the soft wind-rush of warm trades in the palm trees. Our location is fantastic!
