It’s verybrare to have a perfect setup for vacation homes, but the Orchid House is the exception. This beautiful house has it all: large, perfectly situated rooms; pool area, great kitchen; grill; and a fully stocked inventory of beach items including reefs shoes! Easy access to the Grand Hyatt and 5 min max to Poipu beach.

Spacious with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic house, location, and immenities

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 5 and 2 extended family members. The view, location, and owners/help made our stay paradise for the 8 days. We had a minor issue with the freezer but Evan was attentive to our needs and made sure we were happy. Having the ability to swim in a private pool, walk to local beaches/shops, or simply enjoy the house makes renting this house amazing. The house had everything you need and the 2 washer and dryers were a terrific surprise. Our family will rent this house again when we head back to Kauai

Orchid House and Staff first class

  • 5 of 5

The stay started out with the property manager spending an hour with us orienting us to the house and touring the surrounding area. It was a great way to start our visit and set the tone for the service level we would receive. The house itself exceeded all expectations. Four large bedrooms along with fantastic common areas that provided the perfect location to get together as a group. The views were fantastic and we really enjoyed the pool. The kitchen had everything we needed for the week and had top notch appliances. We definitely recommend this property and plan on staying here again.

Our family of 6 adults and 2 children just returned from 12 wonderful days at the Orchid House. The home is elevated on a small hillside overlooking the ocean, mountains and scores of swaying palm trees. This elevation also provides the upper living area with panoramic views of the sunrise over Shipwreck Beach and with binoculars, we could watch people jumping into the sea from Shipwreck Rock.

Each couple enjoyed the privacy and comfort of their own master suite and the kids shared the 4th master suite on the lower level that connected to a separate reading/pool room with an additional day bed. All the bedrooms and living areas have large picture windows and balconies to enjoy the views. And although each room had its own air conditioner, we preferred using the smaller bank of louvered windows that would allow the trade winds to naturally flow through the house and keep it at a refreshing, comfortable temperature.

From the Orchid House, it is an easy and quite beautiful walk to the rocky shoreline, Shipwreck Beach and the Grand Hyatt Resort. Located just across the street is The Point at Poipu, which has a small pool bar with surprisingly good drinks. All the other attractions, shops and restaurants in Poipu and Koloa are conveniently located only a short drive away.

The house was spotless upon our arrival, nicely decorated and very well maintained. The bed and bath linens are of fine quality. The kitchen is well appointed with everything we needed. The laundry room has 2 washers and 2 dryers, which were extra convenient. The salt water pool is fantastic and the kids could not wait to get back to the house each afternoon to enjoy it. Lots of beach towels, snorkel gear and pool toys were provided. We couldn’t have asked for more and would highly recommend the Orchid House. Mahalo to the owner, Ning Gulari, for sharing this little piece of paradise with us!
