Very nice house and location

  • 4 of 5

the house is very well equipped, including beach toys. The beds are very comfortable. The location is close to great beaches and far enough out of town to be relaxing. the bedrooms are large and allowed floor space for children to sleep. the owner was very helpful and easy to contact when we needed a couple of extra hours of luggage storing space while shuttling family to the airport.

Far Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This home was much more that we hoped it would be! From the kitchen to the beach gear we found this home to be a perfect landing place at the end of many long days. The beds were comfortable and grill was an added bonus! Being in a home also really made our vacation whole versus the times we have stayed at a hotel or resort, as we were able to stretch out and give everyone their own space. Lyle was very easy to work with and communicated at all stages. The pricing could not be beat and I can promise our next trip to Kauai will start with an email to Lyle! Thank you so much to the Otsuka family for sharing their home with us!!

Beautiful and spacious neighborhood home--Great deck and views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lyle's place for two weeks in January 2016. The house was nicer even than represented in the VRBO pics and description. The owner, Lyle, was very responsive but completely unobtrusive, and we enjoyed privacy the whole trip and really felt like we were in a home--not a rental. Very spacious layout and large living space with wrap-around windows. We all especially loved the the deck which wraps around from front around to the back with stairs leading into the back yard. Our little ones (5 yrs and 2yrs) really enjoyed the front and back lawn areas, as well as exploring the new tropical plants within the landscape (Fruiting bananas, ginger, coconut tree--and my 5 yr old especially loved the "sensitive plant" which moves in response to touch). The home itself is perfect as a home away from home, complete with stocked kitchen (I enjoyed the blenders for all the fresh fruit we got from the farmers markets), very nice linens (a touch that my wife and mother-in-law really appreciated), nice private bedrooms with plenty of space. Two bathrooms were great to have (even a bonus third one downstairs in the garage if you have more people staying). We were three adults and two small children, and we had tons of room to spare--this house would easily accommodate a bigger family and more sleepers (I think that the couches pull out in the living room and the master bedroom has a large sleeping chair that we used a few nights for the 2 year old to pass out on). The bedrooms are on the quietest side of the house, which was great to muffle the only noise issue; the next door neighbors have 5 or 6 bulldogs which choose late night to not only bark, but also snarl in a really strange and primal way (this might be an issue if you have people sleeping in the living room).

The house is an easy 5 minute drive (about 3 miles) from the ocean; close to Po'ipu beach--great kid beach, and good shopping in the more touristy Kukui ula shopping center [Longs Drugs, upscale retail shops, and fancy restaurants--we tried Merriman's one night, which was a very nice date night and delicious meal]. Close by still is the more rustic Koloa town with fun shopping and a more local feel. The only drawback to the house location is that as close as it is by car to everything, we couldn't really throw the kid in a stroller and walk anywhere from the house. All in all--We loved the house and felt completely at home here--we will definitely be repeat renters. Thanks Lyle!

Lovely comfortable home in the hills of Lawaii

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic stay at this comfortable home in the hills of Lawai, minutes from Poipu Beach and the cozy town of Old Koloa. The home has everything you can possibly need including the tranquility and peacefulness that Kauai has to offer. So close to anything and everything, but at the same time you get the feel of being worlds away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, even if Kauai is very slow paced and layed back. Cannot wait for our next trip Thank you Lyle!!!

Kailua-Kona, HI

Great home at a good price for experiencing true Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six felt at home here. The house is spacious, the road is quiet, and many recreational items are provided. It is a great location for easy access to various spots. We traveled all over the island during our vacation (from Kilauea Lighthouse to Waimea Canyon), and we always returned to the house to clean up before dinner. The battery-powered lantern and the candles were very helpful when strong winds knocked the power out the first night we were there.

Recreational Items Provided: Boogie Boards, Coolers, Beach Mat, Surf Board, Beach Toys, Croquet Set, Beach Chairs, etc.

Note: Stairs must be climbed to enter this home, whether from the front of the house or from the garage. This wasn't an issue for us, as we love hiking, but it's something to consider if your group includes babies, toddlers, or physically disabled people.
