About Wendy Rambo

We live in California but have grown to love Kauai. We bring the family there at least 2 times a year.

Wendy Rambo purchased this House in 2001

Why Wendy Rambo chose Poipu

We had first loved the north Shore and almost purchased a house there. Then this house came available thru a friend. We were so happy that we picked Poipu. The weather is sunnier and there is many things to do.

What makes this House unique

We love to go to the west side to surf. The beaches at Polihale are wonderful and secluded. The beach within walking distance is wonderful for families with small children. Poipu Beach Park is called Worlds Safest Beach! Hang out at the Grand Hyatt Spa for the day of classes and treatments. They have a day pass available to visitors.

            Location Type

              • Mountain View
                Master bedroom tho it does not have an ocean view, it faces Black Mountain which is a beautiful ridge line in Kauai.
              • Ocean View
                Facing Kauai's southern most tip, our house is situated so that most rooms have an ocean view. Both bedrooms upstairs as well as the living room and kitchen look over Kauai's blue waters.
              • Water View
                Another wonderful perk of this location is to watch the migration of the whales that come so close to the southern tip, that you can hear them whistle and call to each other.

                                                            Nice place with views and beautiful lanais on either side of house. Outdoor shower and laundry. Updated kitchen with everything you need to make meals at home. Centrally located between Hyatt /shipwrecks and poipu beach park/brennekes.

                                                            Owner, Wendy was a breeze to coordinate with and accommodated us when we landed early. Cookie, onsite manager, was sweet and helpful also!

                                                            Thanks so much for an awesome stay!

                                                            Simply amazing!

                                                            Amanda D.

                                                            We had the absolute time of our lives in Hawaii. This house fit our needs perfectly! It is so cute and clean with lots of nice updates!! We spent most of our time while at the house on the front Lanai (porch) looking at the Ocean. It was totally amazing! It is close to many beaches and towns with lots to do. It's also almost always sunny in Poipu which was just perfect! Having a washer/dryer at the house was also awesome. The outside shower that has hot water was the best after coming back from a day at the beach! The beds were also so comfortable and with the windows open at night and fans on, we slept like royalty!! We so appreciated all the amenities of home while we were in paradise. Would HIGHLY recommend this property and we would definitely stay again. Thank you for sharing your property with us!!

                                                            Incredible Ocean-front Retreat!!

                                                            Michael J.

                                                            Words cannot begin to describe this incredible property - nothing will surpass sitting on the front porch, sipping adult beverages and watching the whales pass by just off shore. The home is beautifully appointed and very in keeping with a relaxing island retreat. The kitchen is fully stocked with every dish/utensil you will need to enjoy your favorite recipes while relaxing in paradise. The owners go out of their way to make sure your stay is a memorable experience. This is truly one of the best homes we have every had the opportunity to enjoy. We cannot wait to go back again!!

                                                            Amazing property, fantastic location, highly recommend !

                                                            Valerie A.Haslett

                                                            This was our family of five’s first visit to Kauai, and we couldn’t have picked a better property to stay in. From the moment we drove up to the property, it felt like our home away from home. The home was sparkly clean, and we were pleasantly surprised by the brand new kitchen and appliances. The kitchen also had any type of gadget or utensil that anyone would ever need. We loved the front porch for early morning coffee or enening cocktails and we spent a lot of time there. The view from the front porch to the ocean is amazing (but Is under development, so unfortunately, that may soon change) The grill out back was great for evening meals of burgers, chicken, or mahi-mahi.

                                                            The location on the island was centrally located for exploring. It was also perfectly located between two favorite beaches, Shipwreck and Poi-pu.... walking distance to both, but we usually drove due to the amount of chairs, cooler, and boogie boards that we hauled.

                                                            Thank you Wendy, for sharing your beautiful home in paradise with us for two unforgettable weeks !

                                                            Steve and Valerie Alexander and Family

                                                            Wonderful escape

                                                            Kristy T.

                                                            This was our first trip to Hawaii. We traveled with my parents for my brother's wedding. This house was perfect for all of us (my two kids included). The layout of the house was perfect and the view was amazing! It was also very close to everything we needed.


                                                            Deborah & Donald D.

                                                            This home was exactly what our family needed for an ideal family reunion/vacation! Big enough for everyone to have their own space but cozy for family meals, gatherings in the living room as well as two beautiful outdoor seating/dining areas. Very clean and comfortable accommodations. It was also in the perfect location with great proximity to Poipu Beach, Koloa, running and hiking trails, shopping and many delicious restaurants. The house itself and the amenities that were provided went above and beyond our expectations. Not only was the kitchen fully equipped but there were also plenty of beach towels and bath towels as well as beach chairs, beach umbrellas and even sand toys that our granddaughters used on beach days. The owner was extremely pleasant, friendly, and helpful. I would highly recommend this property for a beautiful stay on Kauai!


                                                            Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA

                                                            Since we are located a 5 minute walk from the Grand Hyatt, it is fun to book a treatment in their world renowned spa. You can use their facilities all day when you do!
