About the property

House, Studio with king size bed and full kitchen, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Walk 100 yards (one minute) and you are at Poipu Beach Park! Just step from the blue waters of the Pacific off Poipu Beach. The Hibiscus suite is a spacious garden studio in the Hale Pua Villa House at Beachside Poipu with full kitchen, king size bed and entertainment center. If you want a location convenient to surfing, snorkeling, swimming, basking in the sun or serving as a command center for your island vacation activities this is it!

The full-kitchen has stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher and all the stuff necessary to blend the best smoothies, create superb salads, or barbeque steaks on the electric grill on the private lanai. Optionally, a few steps away is Brennecke's Restaurant which has great food.

Can't leave the computer home? The facility is wi-fi enabled. Don't pay for that extra bag on the airlines. A laundry with supplies is available. The bath is shower only - no tub. We think we have thought of everything including beach chairs, mats and an ice chest for your beach activities. The Hibiscus awaits along with the beach, rainbows and stars only Hawaii can provide. Our guests say it best......

Ohhhhhhh..... what a beautiful place! A blessing to look out and see the most amazing beach and spot that we were married- Poipu Beach. Our deepest Aloha and Mahalo as we wind down our dream wedding week. Linda and Nathan - Monument, Colorado

Mahalo! This place is wonderful. We love all the detail that you have put into the suite. Our every need was met and so much more... having the internet was the best. It was so comfortable having this home away from home that wasn't a starchy hotel room at the end of the day. Charline and Edie - Sunnyvale, CA

About The Owner

My husband & I (Ed Sindt & Kathy Bates), bought this wonderful beach property in 1978 with thoughts of retirement close to one of the best beaches in the world!

A minute walk to Poipu Beach Park & Brennecke's Boogey Boarding Beach!

We built a home in 1988 and moved to Kauai, heaven on earth. Built a second home on property and rented it out! Alas Hurricane Iniki destroyed both houses. We relocated to California to work. Rebuilt one home and made it a vacation rental.

At last in 2002, we returned to Kauai and decided to start managing the vacation rental home ourselves. We built the second home and then found that we wanted to live upcountry and have dogs again! We added Hale Pua to the rental market.

We are very happy living on Kauai in the south shore and managing our rentals. We love meeting our guests and hearing of their adventures on island and elsewhere!

The Owner purchased this house in 1978

Why The Owner chose Poipu

To us this is the most perfect location in Poipu as it is only a minutes walk to Brennecke's Boogey Boarding Beach and Poipu Beach Park. We are one of the 3 vacation rentals this close to the beach in Poipu. We have really tried with our personal touches to make this a very special island holiday get-away without the expense of staying in a hotel. Located in this charming neighborhood creates special memories for all that have stayed with us.

What makes this house unique

Sleeping and waking to the sounds of the ocean!

Wakeup calls by our famous roosters come at no extra charge!

We also include unlimited sunshine and our beautiful trade winds at free of charge!

Great place right next to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Overall we really liked this unit. Some highlights:


- Just steps from Poipu beach which has snorkeling, boogie boarding and beautiful sunsets and several dining options.

- Great central location


- Nice clean place with plenty of room to spread out.

- Comfy bed

The only negative was there is no A/C. Usually not a big deal, but if you leave the windows open then be prepared to be woken up by several roosters bright and early.

Location, location, location--great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great retreat for a couple if you don't require a swimming pool. The beach is steps from the door and the beach has great swimming, snorkeling and hanging out on the sand. Turtles, fish and a Monk Seal call the park home. Poipu is a great location for short trips to many of the island highlights. Limited kitchen but its fine for breakfast and lunch and the unit is a walk or a short drive from good restaurants.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was very clean, comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals, which we really appreciated. We also loved the outdoor shower, and the lanai. The best part of this property is the location: just steps away from one of the best boogie boarding beaches on the whole island! We were in the water for hours every day, and we'll definitely be back next year. Thank you for everything!

We really enjoyed our stay on Kauai, despite the rain!

  • 4 of 5

The hibiscus suite was very clean and comfortable and we appreciated the little welcome gift! We overlooked that it didn't have air conditioning but for the most part were fine with fans. The only other drawbacks were that the wifi didn't work very well and the there were no curtains on the door windows and although the property is pretty private, it made my husband uncomfortable that you could look in and see us sleeping. Otherwise a beautiful, enjoyable stay!

Great location, so close to beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this Poipu location for our honeymoon. It was perfect for us - walking distance to beach. Kathy had beach chairs for us to use at the beach and pretty much anything you needed in the kitchen. It was very clean. It didn't have A/C, but we were OK with the fans. The lanai was perfect to eat breakfast in the mornings. We were originally going to book another cottage in Kauai, but we ended up finding this Poipu cottage. We are so glad we did! It was close to all the restaurants and driving distance from Kauai locations, but was so nice not to stay in a resort with the crowds. Definitely recommend and we would return. We loved the chickens in Kauai as well.
