  • Big group, lots of fun

    "We were a party of 10, 6 adults and 4 kids and the house worked great. The owner was nice enough to supply us with 2 portable cribs that fit well in the 2 master bedrooms and two of the twin beds were tethered to make a king in the other room. The location of the house was easy to get to and the accommodations were nice. With four kids, however, we did end up driving, instead of walking, to the beach most of the time; with the amount of stuff we packed to and from it was easier then walking. The house came stocked with several beach toys, chairs, umbrella, and other accessories which came in very handy. The constant breeze kept the house a good temperature, it would get a little warm in the afternoon but nothing a cold drink wouldn't cure. The patio area was great for the kids to be "outside" but still contained. The BBQ was a great addition which we used several times. I highly recommend the Torch Lighting at the Hyatt. I have been to 3 different Luau's and the entertainment at this free event was just as good as the $70 events. Be sure to get there early if you want a place to sit. And I would recommend splurging on the $15 mai tai's, we had some sticker shock but then ended up with seconds, they were very tasty. A couple of cons: the house could be located closer to the pool/beach. This wouldn't have been a problem if the kids were older but being 1 and 4 it was a little far to walk while carrying everything. Also the beach within walking distance was not the best for young children and with the higher winds we had while there the water was pretty rough. The bathrooms in the master bedrooms need a little updating, the shower heads were small and did not have the best water pressure. Overall, for the price, we could not have asked for a better place. The owners were great and willing to help with any request."

  • Great Location!!

    "This was a great house, we had two families staying here and it was plenty big enough. The kids found that the beach just out front was the best boogie boarding, and turtles feeding off to the left of the house all day. Humpbacks could be seen sitting in our chairs from the screened porch. The screened porch was awesome!!! We didn't even sit in the living room, this was a great spot to relax and enjoy the view. The house was well stocked with tons of towels and all things you would need on vacation, cooking or other wise. The house could use some updating, but with the view and location you forget about that instantly!!"

  • Great house and area

    "We had a wonderful time in Poipu and shared this home with another family. We didn't have any phone usage or WiFi for the first 3 days of our holiday (there are sometimes outages in Kauai) and I had to contact Oceanic myself to get the WiFi sorted out (and book the technician as well). I had to use my cellphone to do all of this as well. It did eventually get resolved. The house is in good shape and was very roomy for all 8 of us (there are four bedrooms and four bathrooms). About 5 days before our holiday was over; 3 out of the 4 kitchen chair legs lost one of their wheels, making them unusable. We stored them in the garage and they were not repaired while we were in the house, but luckily; we had enough dining chair for our party. Christine was very helpful with giving me the information about Oceanic and our phone problems. The house is located in Poipu; which is a beautiful area; but it does take an hour and 45 minutes to drive to Hanalei (last year we stayed in Kapaa and it East; so everything is quicker to get to). However; we had a lovely holiday and I would definitely use VRBO again!"

  • Last minute reservation for 3 nights.

    "I and my wife, daughter, son-in-law, and infant grandson booked this unit as a last minute addition to the beginning of our stay on Kauai rather than book a hotel room. We decided to come over 3 days early until the arrival of our son and his family. After three days we moved to another house near the Sheraton for the remaining 11 days of our trip. I am not one to give glowing or flowery reviews, but I cannot say enough good about the property and ESPECIALLY the owners. We were contacted about a week or more before our arrival date and informed that there would be construction going on next door and that he was totally unaware that it was going to start. They offered a full refund with no penalties if we wished to cancel. If we did stay, a discount on the cost of our stay would be applied when damage deposit was refunded. We went ahead and stayed and the construction was no problem with us at all. In fact we had more noise at the house we moved to after this rental as it backed up to Poipu Rd. We were wishing we were back at this beautiful and secluded location. Although beach access is not direct and you must walk around to get there, we did not find this a problem. Baby Beach is a great place to take young children. We had an infant with us and if we had too much to carry, we simply drove around. There was never a problem finding a parking place. The property is beautifully decorated and extremely well maintained. My wife and I are from a small and remote commercial fishing town in Alaska of around 1800 population. Besides the beauty of the mountains and the sea, what makes us really love it here are the people. Although I have never met these owners or even talked to them on the phone I feel they are like the citizens of our town. Honest and caring. I just want to say thanks and that we WILL be doing business with you again."
