We stayed in this house in April 2017 for an extended family vacation and it was amazing. Exceeded all expectations, the pool was amazing to come back to after the beach and site seeing. We had tons of space for each of us to stay comfortably, the bathrooms in every bedroom and closet space was a bonus. The morning sunrise is beautiful from the deck, its close to the beach ,sea turtles, rainbows, hiking and much more. I highly recommend this space, we had an amazing trip!

This is a fantastic house, in a great location. We stayed at Orchid house for an extended family vacation and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Great bedrooms, with spectacular views, comfy beds, great closets and bathrooms! The house has everything you could need/want. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in close proximity to a number of adventures!!

Excellent location for a memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

Dad: We stayed here in early April 2017. The house was perfect for our 10 person extended family vacation. Plenty of nearby things to do, fantastic scenery from the porches in the morning and throughout the day, as well as enjoyable amenities at the house when you just want to hang out. Very comfortable beds and kitchen and dining areas that allow for memorable big family meals. Very much enjoyed ourselves!

Mom: This is an amazing house!! The morning view from the deck of the master bedroom is awesome. We enjoyed the pool and the spaciousness of the home!! It was the perfect vacation for us. The scenery is beautiful and the rainbows that we saw were a bonus to this magical trip!!

Kids perspective: My parents took me to Kauai to vacation in this house, and it was very enjoyable. There are sights to see within walking distance from the house, like the beach and climbing a rock! On the beach there are sometimes seals, that are there all day, that are very fun to look at and take pictures with. The house has a nice outdoor pool at just the right temperature, and is fun to play in with family and friends!

We had a great stay at the Orchid house. The property is very well maintained, has a great layout, a great location, and the pool was amazing for the kids. Our saddest moment of the 10 days was when we had to leave. Hopefully we will be back soon!

Beyond Our Wildest Dreams

  • 5 of 5

This is the second house that we have rented on Kauai from Ning Gulari. She is a person who pays attention to detail in all of her houses and has them equipped as well as your house at home - maybe better. The house is so well-equipped that all you have to purchase is food and drink. There are multiple sets of dishes so that if you have young kids with you, there are non-chip, non-breakable ones plus very nice plastic glasses.

If you view Orchid house on the web, you'll get a very realistic view of all of the space and features. We had 6 adults and 4 grandchildren aged 2 through 7 1/2, and there was plenty of communal room and still spaces to be more alone.

From the moment we walked into the house, we were thrilled by everything about it. If possible, it is even a better house than any of us had hoped for. We were able to use the Reading Room for our 7 1/2 year old grandson and 4 ½ year old granddaughter with no problem. We did order a cot for that room which proved very useful.

The kids loved all of the pool toys and inner tubes and spray guns and spent many happy hours in the gorgeous pool. The pool and all of the pool toys for kids are in the garage and there is a wide range of them. I might suggest picking up a couple of more water gun types at Big Save or in Lihue. The kids can so easily play in the little pool or jump into the big one and love shooting water at each other.

There are many spices in the pantry and in the round spice rack. There are hair dryers in every room as well as plenty of fans. We had lots of trade winds while we were there in June/early July, 2016 so we rarely used the air conditioning. It is fantastic to have 2 washers and 3 dryers and a very convenient counter for folding laundry. We brought very few clothes because we knew that we could do the laundry as often as we wanted.

The gas grill outside is easy to use and we had almost every meal with our dinner's grilled outside. We ate out there most nights too. We did big Costco and Safeway shopping before we got to the house. I had a list of everything that we'd bought a few years before, and it was good to get a lot of shopping out of the way. Safeway is far superior to the Big Save, so try and get as much as you can before you get to Poipu and then stop in Safeway anytime that you need other things, especially if you are going to sights on the northern part of the island. We will go again and again.
