Why Joe Sylvester chose Poipu

For us Kauai has been a haven where we could raise our kids in an environment that embodies health and well being. We would like to share and help you find the best that Kauai has to offer.

A Kauai vacation is about family and friends. Our villa has a private courtyard that envelopes its guests in glorious sunshine and fragrant scents of plumeria and tropical flowers. Within the compound is the orchid garden where the deep shade provided by Orchid trees offer conditions similar to a jungle floor and bright flowers flourish.

What makes this villa unique

Effective January 2017 this well designed Villa by one of the leading Hawaiian architects welcomes you to the island of Kauai.The well thought out floor plan offers generous bedrooms and baths and soaring ceilings and is inspirational from a design perspective. Large windows throughout the property catches the golf course and green belt with Ocean glimpses in some parts of the house.

All the cabinetry and doors in the home consists of rare Rimu wood, a native to New Zealand, the artistry is easily seen and felt. The craftspeople were flown in from New Zealand to construct all the finish work.

The tropical landscape balances the outdoor paved brick entertainment area.

We had the pleasure of taking our kids and their families to Joe's palace in KAUAI, it's nothing short of fantastic. The house has absolutely everything required to relax and the kitchen was equipped with the works, there was not a time when we said, I wish we had this or that, it was there. Kids were in the pool morning, noon and night, very refreshing and having a little green space for running around was a bonus. Joe was very accommodating and nice to have local support. The Poi Pu beach area has many great beaches, restaurants and shopping and of course golf. Where can you go swim with turtles and Monk seal basking in the sun! A/C in every bedroom was great as well. Wish we could come back soon.

Beautiful remodeled home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful large kitchen with table for casual dining, Bedrooms nicely spaced apart with private

baths, pool is beautiful but no heat. We spent a lot of time out on the the patio. Very private feeling. House even nicer than photos. beach equipment provided. A few window louvers do not work, but air con works great. Beautiful Asian decor! We even got used to the frequent Kauai roosters!

Joe Sylvester was nice enough to meet us at the house and show us around.

We would go back to this special home.

The house is amazing. It was a great place to have our family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time in Kauai. This home is great for large families. Every family had their own bathroom and bedroom. It’s also very comfortable and well located. The owner, Joe, is great. We notified him of small maintenance issues and he was right on top of it. Thanks, Joe. We hope to rent your place again in the future. Aloha!!

Stunning property for a fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly loved our stay in this beautiful home! It was well-appointed for a rental, with beach towels and a well-equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the ensuite bathrooms worked well for for each of my grown children. My granddaughters loved swimming in the pool and playing in the yard. Close to restaurants, the beach and the golf course, we loved staying here and would recommend this lovely property and the accommodating host!

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

It's always nice to show up at your destination and be pleasantly surprised that it's actually better than you anticipated, or than the photos depicted. Big, clean, well appointed, and just perfect for our crew of 7. Kitchen had all the appliances, utensils, etc. we needed... the pool, although not heated, was great to have for the 5 teenagers... and location was pretty sweet, too... just 1 mile from Poipu Beach Park and Brenneckes, and even closer to Poipu Shopping Village. We pretty much walked everywhere, yet were able to be away from the traffic that congests the area near the beach.

Joe (owner) was very accommodating and helpful, so we felt that if anything was going to go sideways, he'd be available.

If you have a group of 6 to 10, this is a great spot... much more economical than 3 hotel rooms, and considerably nicer, too!

Great House. Noisy "Neighbors"

  • 4 of 5

Joe Sylvester is a really nice man and a diligent landlord. His rental home was perfect for our party of five adults and two children, ages 6 & 9. It was easy to achieve privacy here, either in one of the three master suites or outside by the large pool. The only negative thing about our stay, which Joe warned us about upon our arrival, was the construction of a large patio next-door. There were cement trucks, backhoes, saws and lots of laborers and their loud country & western radio stations. Despite the noise and disruption we had a great time here. Thanks Joe!
