About Sonya DeAngelis

We live in the California Bay Area. We have 3 school-age children and visit this house every year at least 3 times. We consider it our home away from home and our kids love the island and all its activities. We always discover something new on each visit.

Sonya DeAngelis purchased this house in 2003

Why Sonya DeAngelis chose Poipu

We bought this house after visiting Kauai numerous times. Our first visit to the island was to the north shore to backpack the NaPali coastline. Since then, we decided to buy on the south shore due to its centralized location, resort feel and drier weather. We know you will love the location in Poipu since the house is within walking distance to 3-4 different beaches, restaurants, shops, pool and tennis.

What makes this house unique

Our extended family love the privacy of the inner courtyard, the closeness to the Grand Hyatt and the beaches, and our parents love the single level and openess of the house.

When our kids were younger, the inner courtyard and fenced backyard were a great place for the kids to play.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful vacation on Kauai. I've taken my mother and sister to all four major islands where we've stayed in houses we found on vrbo. We all agreed that yours was the best. The design of the house is great and it is very comfortably and attractively furnished. The weather was perfect too.

Gorgeous home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults and a three year old -- a perfect house! It's well equipped for the beach and is within walking distance to a lovely beach and snorkeling area. Sonya was very responsive when the Internet went out as well. We had a delightful week!

Great home - great location.

  • 5 of 5

I especially liked how well the kitchen was stocked with everything a cook would need for a good family meal. The outdoor dining table was a place we ate together and hung out after a day at the beach.

A great home at the best location in Kauai

  • 4 of 5

The house was everything that it promised to be. Well equipped, full kitchen, lots of beach equipment, baby crib and high chair. It is extremely conveniently located for a short walk to either of Poipu great beaches. It was a real joy to stay at the house and we had a great vacation. Thanks Sonya!

The home feels larger than it actually is!

  • 5 of 5

The open floor plan and covered deck makes this home feel very large and very comfortable for all 7 of us. The home also has beach chairs and everything you'd need for a great day on the beach. The location is also a plus, for you're within walking distance for a nice hike on Shipwreck, lunch at Brennekies or fine dining at the Hyatt. We had a wonderful stay.
