Had a great week living here. Close to the beach and nearby stores. Home filled with comfortable chairs and beds. Loved the small touches ...earplugs for the Chickens! Kitchen very well equipped. Open use of water gear and freezer bags etc. if I return to Kauai - this will be home again. Thank you !

The cottage is picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully decorated.

Every detail carefully planned and well executed.

Very impressive!

Wonderful open spaces to savor the Hawaiian experience.

Easy access to Poipu Beach is ideal.

The wild roosters crowing long before sunup is really not a charming aspect.

Felt like home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Kevin and Cathy have thought of virtually everything and were the epitome of hospitality. It truly felt that we were at home and whatever we were needing or wanting we found. As one who likes to cook what the locals have to offer, I was impressed with the kitchen. Matching plates, cups, glasses on open shelving were as pleasing to the eye as the rest of the decor and there was every utensil needed to make our meals which we enjoyed on the beautiful lanai. Even during a torrential rainstorm we sat more on the lanai than inside. Loved, loved, loved the outdoor shower off our room and the orchids that grew inside of it. A short distance from the beach made for easy walks with our gear (the wagon may be past its prime) and the sunsets were beautiful from the house. We were close enough to the Poipu Shopping Village to walk and the Shops at Poipu (that has the Culinary Market) was a five minute drive. We use VRBO everywhere we travel and I think this is the first time where the home is exactly as the pictures depict. No surprises made for a very relaxing vacation. Mahalo. Lynn and Mitch

A Rare Find

  • 5 of 5

A very thoughtfully and attractively designed property. Fully opening doors to the lanai creates a wonderful connection to the outdoors and beautiful landscaping. Most evenings we enjoyed gorgeous beach sunsets while sipping wine on the lanai. The cottage is tastefully decorated, high end throughout, clean and well maintained. So appreciated having quality beach gear and towels available too. Great location -- convenient to all we needed, and easy traveling to our various adventures. Ranks near the top of our (many) Home Away experiences. Kevin and Cathy's cottage is a very special place, a rare find. It earned our highest praise -- we felt completely at home.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kevin and Cathy’s Home four years in a row and have already reserved our stay for next year. We have stayed in multiple vacation homes in Kauai and this home is by far the best. It seems like a second home to us! We spent countless hours just sitting on the lanai as There is a perfect view of the sunset at Poipu beach. Everything is perfect and if I were to own a home in Kauai it would be designed exactly like this Home!

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four - with two boys aged 12 and 14. We have stayed at at least 5 rental homes in Hawaii over the years, and this was by far the best. It's very well designed and outfitted - very modern amenities, great beds and furniture, perfectly manicured landscape, lots of spare beach equipment to use, great AV, outdoor showers - the works. It's also IMMACULATE and very well maintained - not always the case with vacation rentals. The house is ideally located - just a few houses in from Brennecke's beach, and on a street that gets very little vehicular traffic. The house is set back from the street down a long driveway, and it backs up to a Hawaiian archaeological site of several acres. This makes it feel quite secluded despite being so centrally located in Poipu. It's a very walk-able area, with most of the area's beaches, resorts and and restaurants just a few minutes away. There are a lot of roosters on Kauai, and the house is sensibly outfitted with sound masking units and ear plugs in the bedrooms for those that need them. We weren't disturbed at all with the windows closed, though this may not be possible to do in the warmer months of the year. We LOVED this house and could not recommend it more highly.

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 a place 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 and a property that overlooks a Sacred Hawaiian Village
