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

Beautiful new home conveniently located across the street from Poipu Beach Park

  • 5 of 5

This home was built very recently. It is 2 bed and 2 bath plus a fancy outdoor shower. It has lots of beach toys and beach gear in the garage. The downstairs inside shower is also beautiful. The downstairs back patio looks out over a Heiau so there is nothing behind the house, but a beautiful ocean view. It also has a monopoly table which would have been fun to play. We enjoyed sitting out there at night looking at millions of stars.

The second floor has the king bed and the bathtub/shower. It also has a beautiful screened patio that also looks out on the Heiau & ocean. We loved sitting out there at night and listening to the live music at Brenneckes which you can hear softly in the distance on the patio. We loved how the windows and patio were all screened so we could keep the windows and doors open if we wanted to without having a million bugs.

This house is impecibly clean & beautiful and so well thought out in so many ways. We were very comfortable staying here. It also has wifi & netflix. The neighbors are all very friendly and made us feel like one of the locals.

The house is three doors down from Poipu Beach Park which we walked to every day. I have a toddler so carrying all his beach toys & gear can be a pain, so it was great that the beach is just across the street. The street the house sits on is very quiet with only a dozen or so properties on it, and it dead ends so almost no traffic!

I have been to Kauai many times, and this is the best located, cleanest, most beautiful, & well thoughtout home I have stayed in on the island. You can tell this home is loved. We loved it too, and would love to come back soon.

Beautifully decorated beach cottage in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

When we entered the home, we were awed by the sliding glass ‘walls’ that folded back to provide access to the gorgeous lanai which is surrounded by manicured vegetation. This home offers a relaxed atmosphere with its beach cottage charm. We enjoyed the convenient proximity to all Poipu has to offer. The owners thought of everything and have created a splendid place to ‘get away from it all’. If we could change one thing, it would be to stay longer! Mahalo for the hospitality your home radiates. Your love for the island is infused into every detail of this home.

Pictures do not do this home justice! Wonderful location; Perfect for kids.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Kauai after a week at a resort in Oahu, and it was such a welcome change of pace and scenery! The top reason: this home. Staying in such a well-appointed home made our week with a baby and toddler go so smoothly. From the beach toys to the sand buggy, whatever we needed to enjoy our stay and not have to run to the store was already there. Ahead of the trip, we reached out to Kevin with a request and he was very accommodating. During the trip, a minor issue came up (and by "issue" it was really a matter of our personal preference) and Kevin was super prompt at returning our call and went above and beyond to make sure our personal preferences were met and we were comfortable. We found Poi Pu Beach to be the best for kids, making the one-block walk to the water all the better. There are markets and centers close by - with great restaurants and shopping. But truly it was the home - decor, maintenance etc. that made this a really special trip. We look forward to staying here again when we return to the island.

Perfect house ...perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect … The location was perfect… The chickens were manageable, except for the one roaster who started screaming at 3:30 in the morning. But we got use to it. The chickens are everywhere on the island. By the time we left we were even seeing them in the cloud formations! Overall a fabulous vacation. We are looking to return.

Absolutely Sublime!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Kevin and Cathy's gorgeous property in Kauai for over a week and had the most wonderful time!! The home is located just one block from the beach at Poipu and has every single thing you could need, or want! Kauai itself is a really beautiful place and this was the perfect locating for spending a day at the beach, or exploring the rest of the island. We loved being able to open up the expansive windows, gaze out at the ocean and feel the refreshing trade winds. Thank you so much for everything, Kevin & Cathy! We look forward to returning to your beautiful island paradise soon! Mahalo :-)

Poipu Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was awsome. We loved our stay in this charming beach cottage. The house had everything we needed and more! The Poipu beach offered great surfing and snorkeling each day. The Kauai roosters and chickens offer an extra bonus wildlife experience.
