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. In 2017 our daughter Kim, who grew up on Kauai, took over Kauai Vacation Helpers and is doing a fantastic job helping our Hideaway Cove 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 Poipu
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. We are 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 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.

Very clean and nice property!
Everything was very nice and exceptionally clean! The TV in the living room could have been a little better quality, but fine overall! It was very private, with a lovely patio overlooking a lush lawn area! The owners were very responsive to any of our requests for repairs, etc.
Hi Sherri, I'll pass along your praise for the cleanliness of our accommodations to TMK Cleaning, which has been doing a super job for us for the past twenty years. In addition to the out cleanings with each stay, they do a quarterly deep clean using an extensive check list for items like cleaning ceiling fans, pulling out all furniture and beds for dusting, washing windows, servicing air conditioners and power washing sidewalks. We always purchase the latest technology for our HDTVs and hope you appreciated the HDTVs in the bedrooms as well as the living room. Aloha from Kauai, Herb and Gale
Good location. Nice unit.
Good location a block from the beach. Well equipped kitchen.
Hi Nancy, Thanks for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay in our Coral one bedroom. We tried to think of everything we find useful when we're staying in a vacation rental and included it in ours. It's nice to know you're appreciated the little details. We hope to see you back again and I don't wake of in the not too distant future. Aloha from KaUai, Herb and Gale
Comfortable condo a short walk to the beach
Condo was very comfortable with a full kitchen, livingroom, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Ample sheets, bath and beach towels. The condo was very clean and the property amenities were great! An easy walk to the beach and overall great location. I would definitely come back again and recommend to my friends and family.
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.
