About Tiana Kamen

Aloha! I was born and raised on Kaua'i in Poipu! I love this island and know all the in's and out's. I am a world traveler and love opening our home and island to people from around the world. It's my way of giving back for all of the amazing people and places that have lit up my life during my travels. I spent many years teaching children on Kaua'i about nature, Hawaiian-style sustainability and farm to school. I have a Masters of Science in Nutrition and specialize in teaching people how to be healthy by using whole foods, especially those grown in their own backyards. I am a foodie and love all local foods... check out my restaurant guide in the hale! I am an outdoor enthusiast and have provided you with great tips and outdoor gear.

Why Tiana Kamen chose Poipu

In November 2017, this home was renovated to make your vacation comfortable and care-free. New air-conditioning in every room. Brand new TV's, beds, linens, furniture. Newly painted interior. Luxurious outdoor shower. Because my family are all world travelers, we know exactly what you may be needing on your vacation and have outfitted the house as so. One of us is an interior decorator, so you will love the decor... comfortable, fun, unlike many other rentals on Kaua'i that are stuck in that plastic tacky aloha vibe.

What makes this house unique

You'll love the feel of being in this home. It's energy of aloha is infused within and whoever enters gets a good dose! We are environmentally conscious and make our home as friendly to the earth as possible using LED lights, solar hot water etc. We use environmentally friendly cleaning and toiletry products when possible because your health (and the earth's) is very important to us! We are one of the few large homes that provide you with air conditioning for your convenience, and of course to save energy we ask you turn it off when you are not at home. It's also in the perfect location! Beach, spa, pool, tennis courts, hiking, shopping, walking, biking... what more could you want?!

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The home is well designed, well built, well furnished, and well maintained. The owner/manager apparently paid attention to details, it's hard to articulate, but it made me feel comfortable and at-home.

Location wise, it's very close to shipwreck beach for surfing (we stayed in January), poipu beach for snorkeling, and koala landing for advanced snorkeling or beginner diving.

Highly recommend!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with a few friends stayed at Tiana’s house. We had an absolute blast. The house was very spacious and had a great Hawaiian vibe. We grilled dinner one night at the house which was really fun. The location was great as well! Would absolutely stay here again! 🤙🏼

Large, lovely, well located, unique amenities

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this large, lovely, well-located home for three weeks in January, 2018. Tiana has given much thought to making the home welcome and suitable for guests. She and the Kamen family hosts are most hospitable and helpful. The home was well supplied , clean and has a number of special amenities that are not available in most homes: small putting hole, bidet, a shower with steam room adaptability (which we never used but is a nice amenity). The beautifully designed and landscaped back patio is a private and a perfect area to enjoy conversation, a good book, meals, and the songs of the local birds. The home is attractively decorated and furnished. The owners were very prompt about responding to and handling problems that arose with the house. The kitchen is large and well supplied to accommodate the number of guests this house could hold. An unfortunate issue was that the dishwasher did not work well and was unable to be repaired until a new one could be delivered in the future. Considering the length of our stay, this was an inconvenience. Because the house has some expensive furniture, I strongly suggest investing in the property damage insurance policy. Overall, our stay was most enjoyable. One feels the Aloha in dealing with Tiana and the family. I am confident that visitors to the Poipu area would be most pleased with this family home.

Owner's Response: Aloha Diane! We are so glad that you loved our home and felt comfortable there. I hope it was a great gathering place while visiting your family! Thank you so much for your kind and thorough review. Mahalo as well for being such wonderful guests :) I'm so sorry again about the dishwasher. Unfortunately it must have broke after the last guests and it takes weeks on Kaua'i to send new appliances if they are not in stock. The price of living in an isolated paradise :) A new one is on it's way across the ocean now. Wishing you a wonderful new year! Mahalo! Tiana

Clean spacious house centrally located

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and spacious and our host Tiana was responsive and accommodating. Location near Grand Hyatt was great. Easy walk to beautiful beach but not a good surfing beach.

Owner's Response: Aloha Cohen 'ohana! Thank you so much for staying with us over the holidays. It was lovely to meet a few members of the family. I'm really glad you loved the house and the location. It's tough to beat sunny Po'ipu! Unfortunately, the winter is not a peak time for surfing on the south side. Shipwrecks (in front of the house) is advanced surfing year-round, but there are other great surfing beaches near-by which I surf at often. Next time, come in the spring/summer/fall months and I'll help you find some good surf spots. Mahalo and have a wonderful new year! Perhaps see you in New York one day... Aloha! Tiana

Spacious and clean getaway, walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and some friends rented this house while attending a friend's wedding. Short walk to one of the best beaches on the island, super close to shops, restaurants and hiking trails. Location, location, location! The house itself was very clean, well kept, organized, and modern. The renter was super sweet, very accommodating and gave us lots of suggestions for hiking and things to do, being a born and raised on the island. Great quality for the price. I would highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Aloha Appelusa, We are so happy that you loved staying at the Sunny Poipu Hale! I'm glad you were comfortable in the house and enjoyed the location. Hard to beat in the heart of Po'ipu! It's very nice to hear that you took advantage of our island suggestions and enjoyed them! We love sharing this island and are blessed to share our home with wonderful guests like yourselves. Take care and we hope to see you again in the future! Mahalo! Tiana
