About Kevin and Cathy Stange
We live in Alaska and have been vacationing in Hawaii for 30 years. We realized early on that Kauai was the ideal place for us to come and enjoy the sun and ocean… and Poipu quickly became our family's favorite spot. After owning a condo here for many years we finally were able to find a piece of property close to the beach to build our dream family getaway-retirement home.
Kevin and Cathy Stange purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Kevin and Cathy Stange chose Poipu
This location is steps away from Poipu Beach .where our kids and grand children can have a great time together.
What makes this Cottage unique
We were fortunate to find a builder that could build in details that give the feel of an old Hawaiian Plantation Cottage> our lot is on a quiet dead end street and set back form the road. The property overlooks a Sacred Hawaiian Village and is very secluded feeling but still with views of the sunset.

Home away from Home!
We have stayed at Kevin and Cathy’s home for 5 years in a row. Their home is amazing and has consistently been the perfect place to relax! The home has everything you need for your stay including a wagon to easily haul everything to the beach - along with the chairs, umbrellas, toys, coolers and towels. We love the lanai’s both upstairs and down! We watched the New Years Eve fireworks at Poipu Beach from the upstairs Lanai - perfect seats!! We cannot imagine staying any place else!
Amazing Beach Retreat!
Back in Minnesota from our Kauai vacation for just a few days and I can't wait to go back! We enjoyed spending a very relaxing and wonderful vacation just a block from Poipu Beach. It was amazing to be able to stay in such a beautiful home with its privacy and comfort. It was so fun to pretend for a week that we lived there! We didn't worry too much about the chickens...it was kind of fun to start to recognize them by their funny noises they would make every day...
It was a bonus having access to a wagon to carry the included beach toys, umbrellas, chairs etc to the beach. We got asked a couple of times where we rented the wagon!
A big thank you to Kevin and Cathy for opening up their beautiful and thoughtfully planned vacation home to us!
The pictures don’t do it justice!
This beautiful and comfortable home is a short walk from the beach.
It was delightful to return after an outing and open up the glass doors to the spacious lanai and flow in and out of the house as we prepared meals or played games. We appreciated the many extras that were provided such as boogie boards and beach towels. And, the owners offered helpful suggestions in preparation for our visit to the island. I won’t miss the wild roosters, but I will miss everything else. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us. Staying there made our trip to Kauai more special.
Beautiful beach house, truly a home away from home.
We had excellent communication with the hosts leading up to our stay and as we got settled. The home, and location were all ideal for our family vacation. We saw dozens of sea turtles and found good snorkeling at the nearby beach. Our kids loved the outdoor showers and comfy chairs at the house, and we all enjoyed the park with a shallow beach located just a few steps away from the house. We also enjoyed taking short excursions during the day, but we really looked forward to coming back to our beautiful beach rental! Thanks for a great experience!
Perfect cottage with all of the amenities
We stayed at this cottage a few years ago and it did not disappoint the second time around. In fact, it would be hard to stay at any other place on the island. The owners have carefully considered every detail and it is equipped with everything that we needed for cooking at home and beach time. The secluded backyard and patio gave us privacy to relax after a full day exploring the amazing island of Kauai. Thank you for everything!
