We always find excuse to be on Kauai for home improvement, so our guest return will always see something new every time. One of our goal is to hear from you that you love staying at our home. We want to make you feel that you are truly on vacation while staying at Hibiscus home. Just bring your sunglass, sunscreen, swimming suite and relax...

Ning Gulari purchased this house in 2008

Why Ning Gulari chose Poipu

We love Poipu with its perfect balance of good weather and great beaches. We also like our privacy, quiet and peace when we are on vacation. The location of this house, Kiahuna Golf Village, arguably the most desirable community to live in on the south shore, great neighbors, lack of traffic and proximity to all the beaches we like: Poipu, Shipwreck and Mahaulepu made us choose this house over many others available at the same time.

What makes this house unique

We love the design of the house with high ceiling and multi-level floor plan and all the comfortable furniture; excellent beds and sofa. There are so much space in this home for every one for their own privacy and at the same time you feel that you are connect to everyone whenever you need to. We love the peacefulness with lot of wild life birds (especially parrots) and chicken near by and we can spot them anytime during the day. We have great privacy in our backyard surrounding with flowering and fruit trees. There are fresh avocados on the tree year round that we can pick whenever we need one. We swim in the pool while watching the palm trees sway in the wind, absorb sunshine and listen to birds chirping. We love to be in the spa at night watching dark sky with lots of milky way. We appreciate our quiet neighborhood. Our children can run around with very low traffic outside. We love morning walk, jog around neighborhood or even run in the golf at the sunset. We love having breakfast while seeing sunrise from our backyard and of course lot of bird chirping like they just want to be around us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WE had a great time - lovely house and plenty of room. WE ate most of our meals there and were delighted to find spices, condiments, etc left by others. It was easy to get to the variety of things to do. The managers were easy to get in touch with when we had any questions and helped us finding golf courses to play. Mahalo to everyone.

A great home for a great 2 week Kauai vacation with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at the home in Kuaui. The first week there were 13 people, the second week there were 11. The home was more than adequate for all of us. The 5 bedrooms are large enough and located in the home to offer comfort and privacy for different sleeping patterns, youngest 10 months old. Kitchen, dining and living room facilities are all great. The kitchen is very well stocked with cookware, glassware and silverware, 2 stoves, 2 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers. Other features that help make this home perfect are the swimming pool, spa, air conditioning, beautiful landscaping and location. We were able to easily reach and enjoy Kauai attractions, restaurants and shopping. If we returned to Kauai we would definitely try to rent this home again. Each person in our group was able to fully enjoy the Kauai experience because we could enjoy the Hawaii Hibiscus Home.

Beautiful, Comfortable and well equipped home

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Kauai with our children and grandchildren as a celebration of our 50th Anniversary. There were 9 of us and the home offered plenty of space for all of us to spread out and be very comfortable. We started planning quite a while ago. Ning , our owner was very easy to contact either by e-mail or by phone. She was very helpful offering information and suggestions. We wanted to have a family photo taken and Ning offered photographer suggestions as well.

The house was well equipped whether you were going to the beach ( lots of towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys etc. )or relaxing by the pool and hot tub. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans and appliances and space to cook and enjoy meals at home. Of course we also enjoyed many of restaurants in the area.

The property manager Evan was there when we arrived and took the time to show us around the area and offered many useful suggestions for stores, activities etc. He was very easy to contact by text or phone if needed.

The comfort and convenience of the beautiful Hibiscus Home made an incredible trip even better. The memories of our special celebration on Kauai will stay with all of us for many years to come.

Beautiful home and accommodated our family comfortably.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Kauai and the location of this home in Poipu! The beautiful landscape, the neighborhood was so quiet and serene at night. Enjoyed waking up to the smell of coffee and the roosters! Attended church on Sunday (Calvary Chapel in Lihue) had lunch at Da Crack. Starbucks run down the way, Puka dogs, the beaches, the Luau at the Grand Hyatt. Everything you needed was at close hand. It was so hard to leave. This home was “home sweet home” to us for a week. Thank you Ning and Evan for everything! Esqueda and Rodriguez family.

House that has it all

  • 5 of 5

This house was planned with thought and care for vacationing groups and families. We had 4 children and 6 adults in our crew; we felt luxuriously relaxed between the warm pool and hot tub, perfect location near Poipu beach and every possible amenity you could think of! Fantastic kitchen for cooking for group, lots of local restaurants if you didn’t want to cook, and of course this is Hawaii. The host returned calls and or emails within hours, and there is an on-site manager who is charming and helpful in getting acquainted with the area. Cannot recommend this house enough! Pool toys, Beach chairs, umbrellas, tons of towels, two washers and dryer’s, lovely furnishings, tons of floor space to spread out. Our crew wanted to come back next week!

Family vacation in Poipu, Kauai

  • 5 of 5

The Hawaiian Hibiscus home is located in an upscale golf village. The home met all the needs for our family of 8. The pool/spa was great for the kids, and adults, when at home and not at a beach. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and did not disappoint with beautiful sunsets and rainbows. The property owners where very easy to connect with along with their local management contact. For a family vacation all under one roof...this is the ideal location...check it out. Aloha

Fabulous well equipped home. Great location! Loved the beach and pool!

  • 5 of 5

Everything met or exceeded our expectations for our group of nine family members. Plenty of room for all in the spacious comfortable home. Kitchen was stocked with everything to prepare meals for a large group. The setting is lovely and so close to all activities from the beach complete with sea turtles to a quick trip to Kauai Coffee Co. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Kauai staying at Hawaiian Hibiscis Home! Evan provided us with wonderful suggestions for island recreation and dining. Mahalo!
