Property type house

About the property

Two story 3 bedroom, 3 bath home with mountain view, located near two beaches.

Aloha! Come bring your ohana (family) and friends to sit on our beautiful wrap around patio at our beautiful Pu'uhonua (place of refuge) with breathtaking tropical views. The great room and kitchen are the heart of Pu'uhonua located on the 2nd floor featuring wrap around windows making it feel like you are experiencing the outside from within. This arrangement allows guests the option of making meals at home while still enjoying every part of Kauai's beauty. The amazingly grand lanai allows for outdoor dining under the stars providing a large gathering area, but Pu'uhonua also offers the privacy of three bedrooms (1 upstairs and 2 downstairs) each having their own complete bathroom and private tranquil lanai. Each room has its own ceiling fan for additional comfort with the cool tropical trade wind breeze. For those of you who need to stay in touch with the real world we offer free wireless internet service.

When you are on vacation it is all about location and our open air Pu'uhonua home sits in the lushly landscaped 70 acre Poipu Kai Resort conveniently located between Shipwrecks Beach and Poipu

Beach. Poipu Beach has been rated as one of the top ten beaches in North America featuring a peaceful 'baby beach' for keiki (child) to play in the sun, while still staying cool. If you are interested in snorkeling, then Poipu beach can offer you a variable paradise of beautiful and exotic tropical fish. If you are more of a boogie boarding thrill seeker then Shipwrecks Beach is the place for you with some of the best surf on the island. The best part about all of this is that these beaches are simply a 15 minute walk on the green belt of Poipu Kai and we will provide everything you will need to enjoy a day at the beach including snorkel gear, boogie boards, umbrellas, coolers, beach chairs, mats, and beach towels!!!

If you need a break from the beach, this rental is also apart of the Poipu Kai Resort Complex allowing access to numerous amenities including resort pool, jacuzzi, and multiple tennis courts. If you are interested in taking a swing at Kauai's most prestigious golf courses than you need to look no further than Poipu. Our rental is down the road to the Poipu Bay Golf course, which is home to the illustrious PGA Grand Slam.

Historic Koloa Town, Poipu Shopping Center, and Kukui'ula Village Shopping Center are about 3 miles away from the rental offering a mixture of amazing restaurants (Keoki's and Roy's are amazing), unique shops, and convenient grocery stores. Poipu is ideally located on the sunny south side of the island with equal traveling distance between the lushly vibrant North Shore and the scenic 'West Side' with it's breathtaking Waimea Canyon (The Grand Canyon of the Pacific) and the spectacular shear cliffs of the Na Pali Coast all seen from Koke'e State Park.

Having all of this adds up to a restful and invigorating stay on this beautiful Garden island of Kauai! E komo mai (come and enjoy)!!

About Hedy Downing

My wife and I are both from the Mid-West who fell in love with the island while stationed as a military family. We lived on this beautiful island for over 18 years after I retired from the military and raised two of our four children here. Only the lure of our kids and grandchildren has pulled us back to the mainland

Hedy Downing purchased this house in 1991

Why Hedy Downing chose Poipu

After living on this island for approximately 20 years we invite you to come and experience the gentle trade winds, the tranquil beaches and the majestic mountains of this magical island. We invite you and yours to come and fill this house with your own fond memories and incredible experiences.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot! We had our two daughters, their husbands, and a grand baby stay with us. The three bedrooms with their own baths was perfect. The house is close to Poipu Beach just a short walk down the path. It is fully equipped with snorkeling gear, a stroller, and other beach supplies. I highly recommend this listing and would stay here again. The upstairs does get hot, but there are plenty of fans. We had an amazing stay. Thank you Hedy and Don!

Pure Bliss

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home away from home. Sad to leave such a place of solitude and tranquility. From the time of booking, Don and Hedy We’re very hospitable. The house was well equipped with everything you needed. Very close to walking path that goes directly to the beach in both ways. They had everything you needed to have a great time in the sun. It was surprising to find the essentials stocked in the kitchen, although never expected, very much appreciated. Would recommend to anyone traveling to Kua they had everything you needed to have a great time in the sun. It was surprising to find the essentials stocked in the kitchen, although never expected, very much appreciated. Would recommend to anyone traveling to Kauai. Thank you for sharibg your beautiful home with our family. We will have these memories for a lifetime

Absolutely amazing and peaceful place!

  • 5 of 5

This home is right in the action of it all but 90 second drive from the beach giving you peace and quiet. The front deck is where my family of 5 spent all of our time relaxing on the quiet cup de sac with fantastic mountain views. The home comes with everything you need and plenty of extra snorkel gear, beach towels, boogie boards, chairs, and coolers. Perfect for a day at the beach. High end finishes and private rooms with each their own bathroom made it ideal for couples too. The open concept made it really easy to hangout with family upstairs and on the deck. The lawn and garden area was manicured very well and neatly done. Highly recommend! Seconds to multiple beaches, both resorts, and easy skip to tons of restaurants and bars. The pool was an added bonus down the walkway not far. The owners are super nice and called me multiple times to make sure everything was set up for us appropriately. STAY HERE! :)
