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.

BEST PLACE EVER!
Beautiful, spacious,impeccable place! We have visited Kauai several times, always awesome but this was the best ever! We loved the inside/out side living space as well as the outdoor showers and sleeping porch. The Turtle House had every item we needed with lovely, comfortable furnishings, linens, full sound system, beach equipment, bicycles (!), everything you might think you need or want. The landscaping was exquisite, the chickens hilarious, the fresh air perfect! The location was also awesome, just a walk to Brennecke's, where we would grab breakfast and take it across the street to eat in the public park near Poipu Beach. We would definitely like to stay again, will try for next summer!
Magical, comfortable & beautiful
Our family had the absolute best experience at the Stange’s house. It added so much value to an already amazing travel destination. We didn’t want to leave! The only minor surprise was the wild chickens waking us up in the AM. So I would recommend earplugs to travelers. We will always cherish the memory of our stay at that house!
This home is beautiful and in a great location. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay in paradise. We explored the whole island from this spot and hated to leave.
Beautiful, clean, has everything we needed!
We loved it! Close to beach, great kitchen, comfortable beds. The only downside was the lack of air conditioning but the fans mostly made up for it.
Amazing property, location, amenities, etc.
This place absolutely blew us away! Like others have noted, the photos really don’t do this place justice. Just an amazing property and location. We have stayed in dozens of VRBO properties over the years and this one is by far our favorite. The home and grounds were super clean, organized and comfortable for our family getaway. No details have been ignored here, and the entire place is well appointed with great amenities. Even things in the garage were neatly labeled and all ready to go. The OCD in me really appreciated this.
We were a little concerned that the home has no AC, but it proved to be no problem whatsoever with the multiple fans about the home, windows and sliding patio doors which really open up the place and allow for great breezes. Location is unbeatable being just 2 blocks from our favorite beach on Kauai. My favorite features to this home were the outdoor showers and ultra private backyard area full of beautiful foliage and trees.
This home will certainly be our go to spot for our next trip to Kauai. Thanks Kevin and Cathy!!
Everything we expected and more
We usually stay in the North Shore, but wanted a more friendly beach for our grandchild. This house was perfect, with a short walk to beach, playground and restaurant. The house is well appointed and well equipped with plenty of room for two couples (and a small child). The grounds are beautiful and the house opens up to them with plenty of privacy. It is so nice to sit on the lanai and read or enjoy a game of croquet on the grass. Our grandchild loved toad hunts with flashlights each night-just looking at the quiet creatures was joyful for her. The roosters however are not so quiet-they seemed to want to wake us around the clock! That’s Kauai-you just have to embrace it. Excellent experience in Hale Honu!
