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 South Shore

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

Absolutely wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

This was hands down the best travel accommodation I have ever experienced. The house was so tastefully done and perfectly stocked (without feeling cluttered or as if you were rummaging through someone else's 'stuff'). The screened lanai attached to the upstairs bedroom is absolutely brilliant and gave our little one his own 'special room' that was still attached to ours. The downstairs BR and attached bath gave our teenager a nice getaway for herself. The kitchen was so inspiring and perfectly stocked; we prepped so many great meals there. The beach gear (and wagon!!) saved us so much headache (and money). Really great location as well. So lovely --- the hosts were responsive and personable. I just can't say enough about this home.... thank you so much!

House was awesome. Lots of room to relax on the first floor and porch. The garage was stocked with lots of great beach toys. It is walking distance to beach, restaurant, coffee, etc. They had a pack-n-play sleeper for our baby to sleep in and a high chair. It was great to not fly with that stuff! And the owners are super responsive to emails. A lovely week. Thank you!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

What a treat! This house exceeded all our expectations. So beautiful and comfortable and luxurious. It's beautifully appointed and well planned. From the sonos system with a speaker on the lanai to the labeled bins in the garage with beach and other play gear, every need was met-even ones we didn't know we had! This is how a VRBO should be done. Highly recommend and would certainly go back!

Welcoming, Delightful, Relaxing Beach Home Just Steps From Poipu Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of Kevin and Cathy's home in Poipu was that the photos do not even begin to do it justice.

The cottage is lovingly decorated using the works of many local artists. Our family loves to cook and the kitchen did not disappoint--we had ample space to cook together throughout our stay well as every single kitchen tool to hand that we needed. Both of the bedrooms were very cozy, and we especially loved the patio that connected to the upstairs bedroom as well as the outdoor shower off of the downstairs bedroom. The lanai is expansive with furniture that is perfect for relaxing, and the grounds are beautifully manicured. The cottage is stocked with loads of puzzles and games to enjoy during lazy afternoons, and the entertainment system with Apple TV is perfect for movie watching at night!

The location of the cottage couldn't be more ideal. Both Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke's Beach (excellent for swimming with sea turtles) are a five minute walk away. My husband and I also enjoyed morning runs to Shipwreck's Beach and the stunning Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail. There are also many excellent dining options within a ten minute drive of the house.

Last but not least, Kevin and Cathy were absolutely wonderful hosts. They were excellent at communicating throughout the booking process and in the run-up to our stay. We are grateful that they were able to accommodate our request for an early check-in, and were blown away by how quickly my husband's favorite pair of jeans were returned to our home in California.

Thank you Kevin and Cathy for a wonderful stay! We will most definitely be back.

Just the most perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

This home is really perfect. The location is perfect, less than a block to the beach, the beds are comfy, the decor is perfectly put together, and has everything you need! We traveled with our toddler and the house had everything you need for traveling with kids - pack n play, high chair, toys, beach umbrella etc. It's so nice to be so close to the baby beach (just at the end of the block)! Our toddler couldn't get enough of wading around in the ocean! This house really provided the most amazing vacation for us - we'll be back!
