Best Week in Hawaii
The Orchid House was the perfect place for our family of three adult children to stay for our vacation in Kauai! We all had a private room and bath and the two granddaughters had a lovely sleeping space in a room adjoining their Dad. The pool provided lots of fun when we were back at the house. The kitchen is well furnished. The manager was very welcoming and helpful. Everything was very clean. Great location. Loved everything about this house. Highly recommend staying here!
Mahalo for your comments. We really appreciate it.
Everything and more!
We were pleased with the location of this beautiful home. Plenty of space for all six of us. Amazing views on the main floor. Kitchen was stocked well. Open floor plan living dining area was great for gathering. All four bedrooms offered plenty of privacy for each couple. Three of the bedrooms offered walk in closets that offered plenty of storage for clothing , luggage etc. Mattresses offered more of a soft vs firm feel. They provided many extras including beach chairs, towels, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, body wash in ample amounts. Hair dryers in each bathroom. The little things make your travel experience that much better and easier. Communication was excellent from the intial inquiry right up until we checked out. This location was perfect for getting to the entire island. There are many places to shop, beaches and great restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this wonderful home.
Mahalo Tara! We really appreciate your comments regarding the communication, the home views, quality, and location. Our philosophy is the same as your comment, "The little things make your travel experience that much better and easier" We want our guests to enjoy their vacation, not to buy or rent many little things.
The views were great!
The house was well equipped, very warm saltwater pool which was nice. However I would not recommend this house to anyone with a walker or wheelchair there are to many stairs and small edge drops throughout.
Thank you, Joanne! The Orchid house has great Ocean views! Well-equipped home and our saltwater pools are very nice and warm.
The Orchid house has two stories. The living, look out, dining, kitchen, and lanai areas are on the second floor so that our guest can always see panoramic ocean views and great sunrises out from the ocean (even when you are in bed). For guests who have some difficulty in walking, the best room to stay is the first king suite or the queen suite on the second floor, this way s/he can access both kitchen, dining, living, lanai and still enjoy the ocean views at any time. However, s/he still need to be able to walk upstairs from the parking.
Sorry to hear that you are on a walker or wheelchair. Our Orchid house is not suitable for wheelchair guests and we never advertise that Orchid house is wheelchair friendly.
Since the time you booked the Orchid house, the only question I received was about what beach gear we provide. If you had asked about the wheelchair accessibility, we would have recommended to you to rent our other home, Hawaiian Hibiscus home VRBO#170960 (private pool/ hot tub in Poipu) instead. You can walk across the lawn directly from the parking to the house through a walking path. Three bedrooms, kitchen, dining, living room are on the same level and you can access the warm pool and hot tub on the lanai by stepping only one step down.
My family of four rented the Orchid house for our stay in Poipu. We loved it! Our view was great, we were within minutes of everything we wanted, and having the ability to make our own meals on the great amenities was awesome. We had considered renting a hotel room but I am sure glad we didn't. The ability for each of us to have our own room and space, along with all of the extra amenities made this the obvious choice. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
Mahalo. We are glad to hear that your love your stay and would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
Beautiful, well-maintained property
The Orchid House was a perfect fit for our group of 3 couples and 2 children. Once the kids realized there was a trundle bed under the day bed in the sun room/reading room just off the pool, they quickly staked their claim. FYI, the door from that particular room that leads to the pool has a child lock high up on the door making it easy to keep the pool area secure so little ones aren't wandering out there unsupervised day or night. There are also several children's books and games in the closet of the bedroom off the sunroom, so that section of the house was very much appreciated and well-used by my husband, myself and the kids. The beds are all comfortable and each room is equipped with air conditioning, however, we rarely used it as the trade winds cooled it off adequately at night (we traveled over Christmas and New Years). We appreciated having two washers and dryers and a garage full of pool and beach toys, including a beach umbrella, children's life jackets, floaties, tons of boogie boards, coolers, etc. There was really nothing we needed other than our own snorkeling gear. The kitchen is fully equipped with a rice cooker, slow cooker, plenty of cookware including extra large sizes of pots and pans, spices and several staples like oil, soy sauce, etc. The views from the upstairs bedrooms and living area are outstanding and we saw so many whales! The house is tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood on a hill that overlooks the few houses between it and the ocean for an unobstructed view and it is only about a 10 minute walk to Shipwreck and Poipu Beaches. There is both a long way and a short-cut to Shipwreck beach, but I would highly recommend taking the long walk at least once with your camera as there are several areas where the waves crash quite violently into the cliffs. Amazing to watch! The house is also close to two shopping areas, one with a weekly Farmer's Market that is a must if you want to sample some of the more exotic local produce. The property manager gave us some great tips (he saved us a significant chunk of change on our kayaking excursion) and he was always just a text away to answer any questions. It was like having our own personal concierge. Truly a home away from home. Mahalo for the amazing vacation!
Mahalo. We are so happy to hear that you had an amazing vacation! Whales are around the island from November - April and we glad to hear that you saw so many whales! while you are at the Orchid house. Very much appreciate you review.
Spacious with beautiful views
The Orchid House was exactly what we wanted! We were four couples spending a week vacationing together. 15 min. walk to multiple beaches; views of sunrise over the ocean from three of four bedrooms (we put our late sleepers in the darker room); spacious communal area; all four bedrooms with their own walk-in closet and en suite bathroom (plus a guest half bath off the kitchen); fully stocked kitchen for cooking every dinner at home--including a grill on the lovely covered porch for having dinner and drinks outside, even in a sprinkle! (And a Vitamix blender for all your pina colada needs!)
The garage was stocked full of boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, and coolers for comfortable beach days. Two sets of washers and dryers; Pack 'n' Plays in most (all?) bedrooms; a stock of games in a closet. They've thought of everything. The building manager met us and gave us a tour of the house and then went above and beyond and drove us on a brief tour of the neighborhood, pointing out good snorkel spots and restaurants, etc. Thank you so much, Ning and Evan! We had a fantastic vacation.
5 minutes walk to see beautiful sunrise at Shipwreck (Of course you can see sunrise in bed too!), see romantic sunset at Poipu beach, Turtle coves and Brennecke beach.
