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!

Great house for our family!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with my three adult children and their spouses. It was a wonderful house with many things that made our stay very comfortable. We made good use of the boogie boards and nice backpack/beach chairs. Anything we were hoping to find in the kitchen was there. The air-conditioners weren’t always needed but were nice to have when they were needed. It was a great place to stay on this beautiful island!

Spacious home with just about everything you need for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home. We made ourselves at home immediately! Loved that you had beach chairs and toys! House is well organized and equipped with quality things and not just cheap things! We cooked every night for our large family. Kitchen was large enough for all the chefs in the house. I always bring my own spices when I travel but it was nice to see some basics, possibly left by previous guests but much appreciated. Dishwasher worked great! Washer and dryer are huge and made it easy to do large loads of towels. We enjoyed the back yard that is so beautifully kept. Although the house is near the main road the noise from passing cars was low. We have stayed in this area often but this was our first VBRO house we have rented and we very happy with this house. We always bring our Bocce balls to play during cocktail hour on the green belt. Crazy yes but a lot of fun. Our trip was just after the historic flooding on the other side of the island. Terry, Tiana’s father came by our first night to make sure everything was ok. Since Tiana was out of town during our visit we were unable to meet her. Her Brother Zack was available for any questions we had! Hope your vacation was as fantastic as ours. We would love to visit again! Mahalo Tiana for everything. Oh one more thing that was a bonus was the wagon, it was perfect for walking to the pool and beach! (And for taking on our bocce ball games on the green belt!

Great place! Mahalo Tiana and Family!

Awesome house!

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! 🤙🏼
