About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath Spacious Home

Poipu Vista Villa is a custom designed home in Poipu Kai Resort. Ocean and mountain views are just the beginning for this Hawaiian paradise. The incredible design of this home literally brings the outdoors in, creating a place to relax in peace and privacy with beautiful panoramic views ranging from the mountains to the sea from the living area and wrap around lanai.

Upon your arrival you will know that you are 'Somewhere Special'. A 40 foot wall of glass paneled mahogany doors lead out into your very own private tropical garden with a lava rock sunken spa and pond with a walkway that winds you through a rainbow of colored tropical flowers and palms. The lushly landscaped grounds include orchids, tropical plants, banana and palm trees which greet you swaying in the gentle breezes.

When you finally make your way back indoors you will find it tastefully appointed in an Asian/Bali design reflecting style and grace with natural bamboo and quartzite flooring and a open Hawaiian style, spacious floor plan. A custom gourmet kitchen with an island and granite counter tops over red oak cabinets and breakfast bar seating for four persons. The dining area has seating for up to 10 persons at a formal but relaxed setting.

Poipu Villa Vista is set up on two levels which offers privacy to families traveling together and is ideal for family reunions. The first level is an Ohana, which has a separate entrance through French doors. This apartment includes two of the bedrooms and a bathroom along with a full second kitchen with granite counter tops and all new appliances including a large side by side refrigerator freezer with water and ice in the door, microwave and full oven and stove.

About Nick and Wendy

We live in the beautiful Town Los Gatos in Northern California. Nick is originally from England and Wendy from Southern California, but we have both lived in Silicon Valley for over 20 years. We have been married for 18 years and have three fantastic children. We are excited to take over the management of this longtime successful Poipu vacation rental !

Why Nick and Wendy chose Poipu

We enjoy traveling to the Hawaiian Islands and have enjoyed many family vacations on Hawaii, Maui and Kauai. But our favorite spot is Poipu in Kauai. On our last trip Nick came across Poipu Villa Vista on his morning run, on a whim he picked up a flyer. Low and behold we are now the proud owners!

Poipu Villa Vista has been a successful rental for several years, and under the previous owner had a strong history of happy customers. We are excited for the opportunity to continue providing happy memories for many more families!

What makes this house unique

The panoramic views from this Poipu Kai Crestview home are reason enough to stay. However with it's 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths it can easily house two families, so we can travel with our friends and family and so can you. The size and location close to beaches make for endless possibilities. Maybe you will see a Monk Seal on Poipu Beach at sundown, or boogie board every morning at Shipwreck beach, get a great massage at the Hyatt, cruise the NaPali coast in a catamaran and visit Waimea Canyon just to name a few. Sunny Poipu is a great spot to hang out or launch your explorations. Enjoy Kauaui!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family vacation was surely enhanced by staying at such a beautiful home with plenty of room for everyone. The location of this home was ideally to home base from; whether you choose a short walk to the beach, pool or a car trip to see the many wonders the island has to offer. We certainly will be booking another trip, including lodging at your home. Thanks again for sharing your home with our family.

Elegant home for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and perfect for our family reunion with open common space with lots of space for everyone to hang out or relax with a book, or cook up a feast. Easy walking access to Poipu Beach, Shipbreaker's beach and Dune Trails. Wendy was very responsive during the booking, and on-site manager was even able to help us find a place for trick or treating to make the kids' Halloween a success while we were far away from home. Thank you for your stellar service and cannot wait to come back and stay with you again.

Perfect house for a large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for 10 people. Décor, location, ambiance, and size was amazing. We will be using this location again for sure. The kitchen is very update. The best part is the huge balcony where you can sit and enjoy a sunset or sunrise and the beautiful scenery while enjoying a gentle Hawaiian breeze.

Great house for big group

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 loved the big open floor plan, plenty of dining seating, well stocked kitchen, ac in the bedrooms, nice upstairs bathrooms, proximity to Poipu beach, access to communal pool, and looking at the mountains from the lounge chairs on the lanai. Note that the downstairs with the kids room (bunk bed and two singles) is completely separate from the upstairs, but it was not a problem for us. Wendy was a great host – very accessible and quick to respond. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect for family get-together

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house for a family get-together. The open floor plan to the outdoors is a real treat and a great back yard and front lanai. Beautiful vista view from the front and so nice to be a short walk to the beach. The house has all the amenities for a relaxed vacation.

The owners are very nice and we really appreciate this house for our family time together.

Perfect location and beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful vacation home, opening up the 3 sets of sliding doors brought the wonderful tropical air in and made you feel that you were truly some place special. It is spacious with a huge lanai and private backyard with hot tub, and room for the girls yoga. Our family consisted of 8 adults and 3 young children, there was plenty of room for all, and also space if you needed some quiet time. The home had an ample supply of kitchen utensils, bath and beach towels even a bag full of beach toys, umbrella, and bogie board. The upstairs bathrooms were beautiful and spa like, we all loved using the walk in showers. The downstairs was used basically for sleeping and access to a second refrigerator was key for a large group. Laundry was located off the kitchen and was so nice to have, yes the dryer is noisy at times, but no big deal for us. Wendy had the crib set up, pack and play, high chair, and stroller all ready for our use. Our communication with her and Thomas (local contact) was easy and with appropriate time responses. Our only complaint is the bedding, every mattress in the house is worn out and uncomfortable. All of the adults complained about sore backs and not getting a good night sleep. We were expecting/hoping for luxurious pillows and bedding. We moved the twin mattress toppers from the basement to the upstairs to make half the bed tolerable, did it ruin our stay? No, just would have made it a 5 star review.The home's location is absolutely perfect! The Poipu Kai Resort walkway is amazing, perfectly maintained and well lite for walking home from sunsets. This home sits right in the middle of both beaches and right off the walkway! It is a beautiful and a safe walk to the beaches.

We enjoyed shopping in Poipu, but Koloa was our favorite stop with all local shops, Pizzetta was great pizza and fish tacos from the food trucks are a must. The shops at Spouting Horn were also local and had great souvenirs, Puakea Golf Course was reasonably priced and challenging for par golfers. Captain Andy's snorkel and tour of Na Pali Coast was amazing also!

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear that you had a great trip and enjoyed all the fantastic shops and Restaurants around Poipu and Koloa. So sorry to hear that the mattresses were so uncomfortable, but fortunately Kauai made up for it:) In March we are doing a major renovation of the main living , kitchen, dining area and we will also be updating all the bedding at that time.
