Overview

About the property

Private Home, 2 Bed, 2 Baths, A/C, Pool, Fitness, Sleeps 4-6

The "Catbird Seat". This private home is the closest location to Poipu Beach and Brennecke Beach of ANY vacation rental. Beds sleep 4 adults and sleeping mats are provided for 2 children if desired.

This ideal spot is just across from world famous Brennecke Beach and Poipu Beach Park. It is located on the corner of Hoone and Kuai Rd so just step across to the beach!

With its lovely island style furnishings, lush tropical gardens and exquisite ocean views over a small beach frontage road, this home offers a true paradise for your Kauai vacation. From your front covered lanai, watch the boogie boarders, whales, turtles, and dolphins. Then step across the road and you are there! All beach needs are provided: towels, umbrella, cooler, and chairs (snorkel gear and boogie boards are usually available but are subject to damage). Guest golf clubs are also provided.

The small tropical garden front yard gives you just enough privacy while relaxing in your private hot tub, yet preserving your ocean view while dining or relaxing on the full length lanai.

Amenities in this 1400sf home (plus 830sf of lanai) include air conditioning, two spacious bedrooms with baths, a large great room, kitchen with eating bar, BBQ grill, washer/dryer, outdoor shower, and stunning IPE wood flooring throughout.

Enjoy big screen HDTV with DVR/DVD, WiFi, two large walk-in showers, and TV in each bedroom.

You have member privileges at the nearby Poipu Beach Athletic Club (just google it). Resort style swimming pool, tennis, basketball, weight room, fitness classes....included! Just a 15 minute walk away.

Nothing is too good for our guests!

This home location can't be beat. Only 3 or 4 oceanfront homes in Poipu actually have a beachfront. Then try to find a restaurant/deli/bar or stores just a short walk away! No problem from here! The Poipu Beach Park and lifeguard station are a three minute walk away where you can swim and find a baby beach and also experience some of the best snorkeling on the island. Brennecke's beach front restaurant is a two minute walk away -where ocean view dining and happy hour is only surpassed by your "Catbird Seat" at Poipu Beach!

For a less spendy stay, view our other listing - VRBO# 379158 for a deluxe condo at Nihi Kai Villas -just down the street!

A deposit of $500 (plus the VRBO imposed service fee) is required and is refundable based on the length of advance notice given. Until your final payment is due, 100% refund; until 30 days after your final payment is due, 50% refund; after that, no refund unless we are able to re-book the time slot with another guest. Then recovered rent will be refunded. As you can see by our booking calendar, there is a good chance a cancelled date will be re-booked if we are given sufficient notice.

Your final payment is due 90 days prior to your arrival . You will receive an e-mail welcome packet from me two weeks prior to check-in which will include maps, keylock codes, and other info you will find useful during your stay.

Why Don Flener chose Poipu

Poipu Beach is the ideal spot in Kauai. The best of everything - including sunshine! This home location can't be beat. Most oceanfront homes in Poipu don't actually have a beach, restaurant, or stores just a short walk away!

Well-maintained and well-provisioned with exceptional location!

  • 5 of 5

We shared the Catbird Seat with one other couple for our first-time visit to Kauai, and we found the property to exceed our expectations. It's in a fantastic spot right across the street from Brennecke's Beach and a very short walk from the Beach Broiler. The weather was fairly windy so we really enjoyed watching the Boogie Boarders take on the challenging waves while we relaxed on the lanai. The kitchen was well-appointed with tools and utensils, and they had relatively new beach chair and umbrellas tucked away in an equipment storage area. The washer/dryer was a huge convenience, and 2 master suites with king-size beds and individual A/C gave each couple just the right amount of privacy and independence. We rent 5-6 properties per year via VRBO and we usually find a few deferred maintenance issues at each property. We found NO such issues at The Catbird Seat; it is clear the owners pay fine attention to detail and maintain it like their own home rather than just as a rental.

Steps from the Best Boogie Boarding and Snorkeling on Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

It doesn’t get any better than this! The Catbird Seat has it all: stunning ocean views from every window, huge lanai with hot tub, a well-equipped kitchen (thank you for providing spices, cooking oil, etc.), pool access at the nearby athletic club (our kids loved the water slide!), and steps from Brennecke’s Beach/Poipu Beach Park where we found the best snorkeling and boogie boarding on the island. Daily dolphin sightings off the shore and swimming with sea turtles made our stay all the more magical. Thank you, thank you to the owners for sharing your Hawaiian paradise with us!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this perfectly located property. Just as advertised, it comfortably fit our family of five (one slept on the couch in the main room). The beds were super comfortable and the showers were spacious with plenty of hot water. The expansive front deck was open to everything but still very private owing to the garden flora in front.

We were not as familiar with Poipu beach and didn't realize that it was more of a "resort" destination. As such, this property was more catered towards that theme (and nicely so) - although this was more than we needed, it was perfectly situated for a late afternoon swim or snorkel after a long day of exploring other parts of the island (hiking in Waimea Canyon or kayaking/hiking up to Wailua Falls). There is AC for those who need it, but we just turned it off and enjoyed the natural atmosphere (albeit the outside temp was only around 25 C). We took advantage of the short walk to Brenneke's restaurant one night (fantastic food), although we also enjoyed picking up some excellent poke etc. at the Ishihara Fish Market in Waimea and having a quiet dinner at the house, one of several meals we prepared in the well-stocked kitchen.
