Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to let you both know how very much we enjoyed your house! We saw whales breaching from your deck as well as at Shipwreck's beach. There were turtles and monk seals on the sand at Poipu Beach, which we had never seen before. The weather was absolutely perfect and your house was the perfect temperature at all times. We spent early mornings at Shipwreck's and then walked the gorgeousl trail to Brenneke's and Poipu in the afternoons.



We used the Bayview pool once and enjoyed it. There has been a change at Poipu Beach Athletic Club and they no longer have weekly memberships. We didn't miss it but I thought you would like to know.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time here. We had three adults and our two year old. This house exceeded our expectations in every way. It was spotless when we checked in and fully equipped with every amenity we could need. The deck was wonderful and gated so our son could run around without us having to worry about him falling down the stairs. There were great instructions for everything so you didn't have to fumble your way around a new environment. We will definitely stay here again when we go back to Kauai.

Beautiful house, great location, close to awesome beaches

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house. 2 master bedrooms upstairs and small apartment on the ground floor which was perfect for our party of 5 adults. Huge 2ND floor deck with partial ocean view. Deck is half in sun and half in shade. When not sleeping, we spent almost all of the time at the house on the deck. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to make your own meals. There is a huge gas BBQ grill on the deck. We were there the first 2 weeks in August. The house doesn't have AC, but it's not needed. There was a constant strong breeze and the house has tons of windows and screen doors that let in the breeze. (We are from Southern California where we have 95-100 degree days this time of year, so the 85 degree days in Poipu were nice to us.) There are floor fans in each room that helped tons on the hottest days. The upper rooms all have smart TVs so we didn't miss Game of Thrones!

The beach in front of the Grand Hyatt (called Shipwrecks) is an easy walk from the house. This beach is mainly for surfers, boogie boarders and strong swimmers due to strong waves. This is a fun beach for people watching due to all of the activity. Poipu Beach, which is very kid friendly and has just average snorkeling is a 2 minute drive or a 5 minute bike ride. (The ride back through the greenbelt is a bit tougher as a part of it is uphill.) Next to Poipu Beach is Brennecke's beach which is great for beginning to intermediate boogie boarding. (Experts will prefer the bigger waves at Shipwrecks.) The house has a bunch of quality boogie boards but you will want to bring your own fins. There is 1 complete set of snorkeling gear, plus a few extra masks and snorkles. If you want more, bring your own or plan on renting. There are 3 adult beach cruiser bikes and 2 very small kids bikes. There are tons of beach towels and at least 6 beach chairs. There are 2 beach umbrellas, several hard case coolers and 2 soft case coolers. (We used the soft cooler since it was much easier to carry onto the beach.)

The house is close to food, shops and bars in Poipu and Koala. Costco and Safeway are 20 minutes away in Lihue. The Grand Hyatt is right next door, but you would never know it except for their luaus where you can faintly hear the music. The house is in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood.

I would happily stay here again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Sean! Thank you for staying with us and for your kind comments about our vacation home. Tropical temperatures can be warm during July and August, as are most Western US destinations, so we were pleased to hear that you were quite comfortable with the trade winds. We were also were happy to hear how much everyone enjoyed the home's ocean view location, proximity to activities and quiet setting. Mahalo! Patty and Pam
