About Herb

Gale owned a glass bottom boat when she first came to Kauai. As the business grew, activity desks were leased to ensure a steady flow of customers for the boat. When Gale had the second happiest day of her business life (she sold the boat), the desks remained and Gale was then in the activity desk business as Kauai Vacation Helpers.

She often jokes that one of the 'worst' parts of her job is having to test out all the activities to make sure they're o.k. for our guests. It also means she is able to share the knowledge of Kauai she's gained over the past twenty years helping our guests.

Herb's been in the residential real estate business since he first got his license in Huntington Beach, California. In 1993 Herb was recruited by a friend to work as Director of Marketing for a resort on Kauai, and has been here every since. Since leaving the resort Herb has been actively involved in Hideaway Cove doing marketing, designing websites for Hideaway Cove and Kauai Vacation Helpers, blogging and writing our newsletter 'FYI Kauai'. He also answers the phone, does basic maintenance and tinkers with the landscaping.

Herb purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Herb chose South Shore

We have both travelled extensively and talked about owning vacation rentals that had everything in them that we wished for in the places we've stayed. Most important to us was a very good bed with high quality linens and towels plus quality furnishings. We both enjoy cooking and wanted our kitchens to have granite counters for easy cleaning and ceramic top stoves for the same reason. Jacuzzi or deep soak tubs and walk in showers and granite counters turn what would be ordinary baths into something extraordinary.

When Herb first moved to Kauai he rented what is now our Aloha Two Bedroom, Two Bath and became fast friends with the owners, Dick and Donna Page. And when they decided to sell the building next door, Herb was the first person they asked. Initially the building had long term rental tenants and we converted it into vacation rentals in 1999.

What makes this cottage unique

Due to the high cost of electricity, very few of the vacation rentals on Kauai are air conditioned. We decided to add air conditioning to stand out from the crowd. For the same reason, we added an office and large guest laundry rooms on property.

Having an office allows us to give our guests a very high level of service. We are also very attentive to even the smallest details, personally inspecting our units frequently for cleanliness and wear and tear. We constantly upgrade everything on property including barbecues, furniture, beds (two new king beds added recently) and kitchen appliances and 'tools'. We work very hard to provide a high quality guest experience which we believe is the key to our success and the reason our guests come back year after year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Hideaway Cove Villas are super great! the prices are, well... perhaps TOO low, but my new wife and I were grateful since we were doing a honeymoon on a shoe-string budget. They're close to the ocean only a block away on the south side of the island. (

The south (Poipu) is perfect for wonderful sunny days, and it makes such a perfect spot for traveling the entire island of Kauai. We spent at least three days traveling to the north and east sides for various activities, one in the west, and three in the south. The drives to any location were fairly short, and even if you hit traffic, I mean... it's Kauai, just enjoy the scenery!

Although we stayed in the Beachcomber (totally sweet, two person studio), we were lucky enough to get to see the Seabreeze, which was just gorgeous. The place has its own outdoor hot tub, beautiful materials (shoji screen doors, granite counter-tops, tile floors), great big couches, a flat screen TV you won't need, and a view of the ocean! We are already making plans to go there for our anniversary with our closest married friends next September.

Ask Gale anything, and she'll have the answer. Food, views, swells, etc., she'll point you in the right direction! I'd give it 6 out of 5 starts if I could just because they throw in fresh made juice that awaits your parched palate upon arrival. Great, great, great.

Tips: go see the lithified cliffs on the south shore, drive all the way to the pu'u o kila lookout (of Kalalau Valley) at the end of the Wiamea Canyon road (for one of the best views in the pacific), and take a Napali Coast Boat trip.

Staying in the midst of a tropical garden on the Garden Isle!

  • 5 of 5

We don't travel very often but when we do we try to stay away from large resort facilities where you are sharing with hundreds of other folks. For our first visit to Kauai, we searched for a unit that would fit our budget (moderately priced) and our lifestyle (casual). The Royal Palms at Hideaway Cove fit the bill in every way. Air conditioning when we needed it (not very often), lovely breeze coming through the windows for sleeping at night, a full kitchen very well equipped, quiet atmosphere, free laundry facilities, and, last but not least, surrounded by the most beautiful, well maintained tropical garden. Gale and Herb, the owners/operators very obviously take pride in their property which is indeed just a very short walk to the surf. Gale was super patient and very efficient in both arranging for our planned activities and helping to make adjustments to those reservations, and Herb provided very quick responses to email queries during the booking process. The Royal Palms is just as described on the website, there were no surprises when we arrived. Our stay at Hideaway Cove made our fabulous holiday on Kauai even better!

Owner's Response: Hi Arlene, We really appreciate your taking the time to write such a detailed review of your stay with us. Many of our guests tell us how much they enjoyed staying with us and then, when they're back home in the hustle and bustle of things, don't find the time to share their experience. We've been doing this for almost twenty years now and are still trying to improve our guest experience. We're happy your first stay on Kauai was so enjoyable and hope to welcome you back to Hideaway in the future. Aloha from Kauai, Herb and Gale

Owner's Response: Hi Grant, Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in our air conditioned Royal Palm Two Bedroom Two Bath with the huge Jacuzzi tub in the master. We appreciate your taking the time to let us know everything was great during your stay. Our housekeeping company owned by Lisa does a fantastic job and we're happy you noticed the overall cleanliness of the Royal Palm. Hopefully you were able to use the beach chairs, beach towels and cooler we provided for your short walks down to the beach. We're close enough to be there in a jiffy and far enough away not to hear any noise in the evenings. We would welcome you back to Hideaway Cove any time and hope to see you in the not too distant future! Aloha from Kauai, Herb and Gale Owners

Wonderful and private little home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week in Kauai, and stayed in Herb and Gale's Royal Palm Villa. The unit is tucked in the back of the "Hideaway Cove" units, so it was slightly difficult to find at first, but gave my family a lot of privacy. I LOVE that this home had air conditioning. We stayed in Maui for a week in a beautiful home without air conditioning, and it was a terrible experience. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking and dining accoutrements (my parents complained a little that there wasn't a rice cooker), and there is a laundry facility behind the unit. It is walking distance to Poipu Beach, however parking at the beach is not difficult at all. Gale was so helpful in helping me book a scuba and boat tour of the Na Pali coast (which I highly recommend...but definitely take your dramamine!). Overall, this was a wonderful experience. Thank you Herb and Gale for being such wonderful hosts.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Regina for taking the time to write a review of your stay with your parents in our Royal Palm Two Bedroom. We're happy to hear you enjoyed yourselves. We wish you had asked about the rice cooker for your parents, as Gale keeps one in the office for guests who need one. Next stay we'll have one waiting for you upon arrival. Hope to see you again soon! Aloha, Herb and Gale

Great spot for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation we had with our kids! The Seabreeze had everything we needed, from the hot tub to the barbecue on the deck. We especially enjoyed the beach chairs, beach towels and cooler and used them every day when we walked down to the beach. It’s so nice to have Poipu Beach so close, especially when you have two teenagers wondering what to do. Charlie’s surfing lessons that Gale arranged were so good, we had him come back a second day for stand up paddle board lessons. The kids are asking when we're going to go to Hideaway again.

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

hank you for a delightful stay during our recent trip to Poipu Beach. We loved the location so close to the beach. This was the perfect place for two couples to fully enjoy Kauai! We never tired of watching the sunsets from the hot tub and then barbecuing on the nearby gas grill for dinner. Gale was very helpful and saved us money by making reservations for our luau and helicopter. Her dinner recommendations were the best! We’re already planning a trip next year.

Poipu Beach is a resort area with shopping, grocery stores and ten restaurants located within a mile of the property. The beach has twice been named the number one beach in the United States and is the only beach on the south shore of Kauai that is life guarded. This is also a great spot to take surfing and stand up paddle boarding lessons (SUP). You can picnic, swim, snorkel and sunbathe at the beach. We provide beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler for you to fully enjoy the beach.

The adjacent Poipu Beach Park offers covered picnic pavilions, barbecues, a play ground for children, beach showers, public bathrooms and lots of open grassy areas to sunbathe or picnic.

Brenneckes Beach is next to Poipu Beach and is widely considered the best boogie boarding beach on Kauai. We also rent boogie boards and snorkel gear and can have them waiting on your lanai when you arrive.

Other Activities: Helicopter adventures, ATVs, bicycle downhill, luaus, Napali sunset dinner cruises, snorkeling trips by boat and from shore, scuba diving from shore and by boat, snuba, rubber raft adventures into ocean caves, ocean kayaking, river kayaking, zip-lining, hiking, golfing, deep sea fishing, rainbow trout fishing, movie tours in an air conditioned bus to the sites of well known movies and guided tours of the island.

Golf: Poipu Bay Resort, former home of the PGA Grand Slam, is less than a 10 minute drive from the property. This is the golf course for the adjacent Grand Hyatt Resort. The course is beautifully designed with many of the holes on the ocean in Poipu. The clubhouse, which is located on the lake at the 18th hole, is a great place for lunch. At dinnertime the restaurant transforms itself into Yum Sa, a terrific Asian themed restaurant run by the Grand Hyatt. Kiahuna, Pua Kea, Waimea and the well known Prince Course in Princeville are not far away. Our concierge desk is happy to book tee times for you.
