About Herb

Gale owned a glass bottom boat when she first came to Kauai. As the business grew, activity desks were leased to ensure a steady flow of customers for the boat. When Gale had the second happiest day of her business life (she sold the boat), the desks remained and Gale was then in the activity desk business as Kauai Vacation Helpers. She often jokes that one of the 'worst' parts of her job is having to test out all the activities to make sure they're o.k. for our guests.

Herb's been in the residential real estate business since he first got his license in Huntington Beach, California. Sixteen years ago, Herb was recruited by a friend to work as Director of Marketing for a resort on Kauai, and has been here every since. Since leaving the resort nine years ago, Herb has been actively involved in Hideaway Cove doing marketing, designing websites Hideaway Cove and Kauai Vacation Helpers, blogging and writing our newsletter 'FYI Kauai'.

Why Herb chose South Shore

We have both travelled extensively and talked about owning vacation rentals that had everything in them that we wished for in the places we've stayed. Most important to us was a very good bed with high quality linens and towels plus quality furnishings. We both enjoy cooking and wanted our kitchens to have granite counters for easy cleaning and ceramic top stoves for the same reason. Jacuzzi or deep soak tubs and walk in showers and granite counters turn what could be a ordinary baths into something extraordinary. cleanliness.

When Herb first moved to Kauai he rented what is now our Aloha Two Bedroom, Two Bath and became fast friends with the owners, Dick and Donna Page. And when they decided to sell the building next door, Herb was the first person they asked. Initially the building had long term rental tenents and we converted it into vacation rentals nine years ago.

What makes this house unique

Due to the high cost of electricity, very few of the vacation rentals on Kauai are air conditioned. We decided to add air conditioning to stand out from the crowd. For the same reason, we added an office and large guest laundry room on property, in space which had originally been planned as a studio accommodation. We even have the deep soak tub, four poster bed and name plate to go outside the door to prove it. Having an office allows us to give our guests a very high level of service. We are also very attentive to even the smallest details,personally inspecting our units frequently for cleanliness and wear and tear. We are constantly upgrading everything on property including barbecues, furniture, beds (two new king beds added recently)and kitchen appliances and 'tools'. We work very hard to provide a high quality guest experience which we beleive is the key to our success and the reason our guests come back year after year.

Fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational family of 7 truly enjoyed the spaciousness of this home. We did not get in each other's way at all. We also loved the fact that we could walk a few steps and be at the beach. Dining on the lanai and watching the sunset was a treat. The house had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and complete. We will definitely be back to enjoy more of Herb and Gale's great hospitality.

Owner's Response: There aren't many homes this size this close to the beach. It sounds like you took full advantage of that short distance and added in some dining on your covered lanai complete with one of our gorgeous Poipu Beach sunsets. It was so easy to host you and your extended family that we'll look forward to seeing you again. Aloha from Kauai, Herb and Gale

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was absolutely gorgeous. The high ceiling with oak hardwood flooring was SO incredibly beautiful, it made coming back at night from exploring during the day that much better. The property was well maintained with beautiful gardens. The AC was wonderful when needed, and there were plenty of fans throughout the unit (kitchen/living room, and all bedrooms) to keep it consistently cool when we were indoors. We had seven people in our unit, and it was definitely spacious. We enjoyed our nightly BBQ dinners out on the lanai. And the unit came with the beach necessities such as beach chairs, beach towels, coolers.

It's also a quick walk to the beach! Literally 5 minutes to the Brennecke Beach, and then maybe a 7 minute walk to the larger Poipu beach. We saw turtles and monk seals at these beaches in the morning. The turtles greeted us pretty much every morning during our walks. It was an amazing experience, highly recommend staying here. Thank you Herb and Gale for being so accommodating.

Although the laundry was not in our unit, it was a quick, less than 1 minute walk, and located in the same building. We never had issues waiting for an open washer/dryer. I think there were three/four of each.

Parking was never an issue. We had two cars between 7 people, and it was never a problem. Conveniently located right out front of the building.

Herb was really responsive as well. We asked for extra paper towels and a rice cooker, and he brought it over the next day. Herb and Gale even sent us an email a day or two after arriving to check in on us and see if there is anything we needed. They were so welcoming.

I had originally booked a two bedroom with Herb and Gale, but then we had two more people in our party join in last minute. So we upgraded to the three bedroom unit. Gale and Herb were so responsive and easy to work with. I was worried that it would get a little complicated, but Herb and Gale made it so quick and easy. There are reliable and made things so convenient. Thank you Herb and Gale, can't wait for the next time!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 (6 adults and 2 children) had a great stay at Hide-away Cove. The unit, with three bedrooms, open concept living room, dining room (with seating for all of us) and a large kitchen. We also spent time on the lanai (the deck), which has also a table with seating for all of us. The view from here was fabulous, saw many of the well-known Kauai sunsets. The Poipu beach is within walking distance, we all walked down to the beach, with chairs, towels, swimming gears. We saw Turtles, Sea Lion, Seals at the beach. The unit's location was good for us, we were able to drive up to Princeville, visiting other beaches, we also drove west to Waimea Canyon. The kids also enjoyed swimming, and riding the water slide at the Poipu Country Club. We recommend this place, Gale was very helpful, a wonderful family vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay at Hideaway Cove. It sounds like you took full advantage of our Oceanview Three Bedroom Two Bath with its newly remodeled kitchen with stainless appliances. This is our most popular accommodation for larger groups such as yours. Also happy to hear you were able to fully explore our garden island of Kauai from our central location in Poipu. We hope you are able to come for a return trip in the not too distant future. Aloha from Kauai, Herb and Gale Owners

Spacious home with all the needs

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a group of adults to relax and adventure in Kauai. The pictures are true to the cleanliness and quality of the house. No surprises upon arrival aside from the tropical juice waiting for us in the fridge. All the accommodations were in excellent conditions, and the location is superb being in a mellow nice neighborhood a short five minute walk to the beach. The beds and couches were very comfortable and each room was equipped with it's own A/C. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the cookware needed to make any dish desired. I recommend stocking up from one of the local farmers markets. If you don't want to cook we had amazing pulled pork at Brennecke's down at the beach. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone I know considering visiting Kauai.
