About Kauai Vacation Rentals

It all began with a vision. A desire to share the magical island of Kauai with the world. And, founder, Lucy Kawaihalau, has dedicated her life to that goal through Kauai Vacation Rentals. "In a vacation rental home or condo, you really feel like you're living here," reflects Lucy, "so bringing together home owners and guests to achieve the 'best fit' is only a part of our distinguished reputation. Our responsibilities are twofold. For our owners, we provide the best management and maintenance services so they can rest easy, knowing their homes are meticulously cared for, since they may be thousands of miles away from their investment. For our guests, we believe they should be treated like royalty." And, it is the respect for the guest that gained Kauai Vacation Rentals recognition throughout the world. A friendly team dedicated to serving the needs of guests, with attention to all the details, makes it all possible. "A vacation to Kauai is so meaningful," adds Lucy. "For some, it may be the trip of a lifetime. For others, it may be a yearly event. This is a splendid place to relax. Our guests are 'energized' when they go home. That's what we mean when we say, 'magical Kauai.' " This genuine business model embodies the Hawaiian word, 'Aloha,' and it has gained much recognition within the industry and business venues, including numerous awards. Many glowing articles have been written, from Kauai Business & Real Estate Magazine, Hawaii Business, and internationally distributed Travel & Leisure Magazine to famed Fortune Magazine. In fact, Lucy Kawaihalau was personally honored with coveted awards from the Small Business Administration and Kauai Chamber of Commerce for her successful business achievements. Lucy concludes, "I am deeply grateful for our recognition and awards. Yet, it is the phone call, with heartfelt and glowing remarks about a visit to Kauai from a satisfied guest that brings us great joy. Therein lies our greatest achievement."

Exceeds All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I consider myself an experienced VRBO renter. I have rented vacation homes in Santa Cruz and San Diego CA, Boulder CO, Cape Cod MA, and multiple locations in Florida. This vacation home is the best I have ever stayed in!

The house is well-represented in the stunning pictures you see. It is bright, very clean, well-stocked and well-organized. Clear instructions, lots of extras included (coffee, cooking spices, toilet paper, laundry soap) that made our vacation that much easier. The AC works well, there are ceiling fans in every room, TVs in every room, extra linens and towels.

The location of this property is as described in the listing. I have two kids (8 & 11) who had no trouble with the short walk to the pool and beaches. There is a ton of beach and pool equipment provided in the garage. The kids also really enjoyed the fenced in yard area. They kicked a soccer ball around, etc.

The property management company totally has their act together with an app including all relevant information about the property and area as well as keys and instructions waiting for you upon arrival at the airport (no extra "check-in" stop) - a very customer-centric approach.

Outstanding vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us! We were traveling as 2 couples and the lay out if the house was excellent to allow us both to have our privacy fir the week and a half we were on Kauai. The location was also excellent within walking distance to 2 great beaches. The neighborhood was quiet and the house was so clean and had everything we needed for cooking or for heading to the beach! We would stay in this rental again and recommend it to our friends!!

Wonderful house. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We came back to Kauai this Sept and enjoyed ourselves so much! We also stayed at Shells in November of 2012 and January of 2011. We stayed there as a family and another time it was just us girls. The place was perfect for both.

I loved being in a house rather than a condo with the spacious living area inside and the backyard with flowering tress and barbecue all to ourselves.The house had everything we needed and was neat and clean.

My favorite thing was the open floor plan in the living area with glass all around. I just loved opening the blinds in the morning to look out on the lush greenbelt and the beauty that Kauai is!

Another favorite thing is the houses accessibility to the beach, restaurants and great walking or hiking paths.You can take a morning walk on Shipwreck Beach in front of the Hyatt. Kids love to look in the tidepools there. The undertow is quite strong, however. Past the beach is a path, leading up the bluff, a great place to watch the sunrise (gorgeous!) or continue on a hike up the coast. Taking the path the other way, you can often see local fishermen on the rocks.

When you go out to the green belt and take a left on the path,it will lead you down to Poipu beach which is a great place to spend the day or watch the sun go down. Brennekes Restaurant, a little further down that road, is an affordable place to dine and watch the sunset

If you take a short car ride down the road,and go to the right side of the Beach House Restaurant, you'll come to a great snorkel spot. It's my favorite because the reef is so close to shore with lots of fish and some turtles.

I would recommend this place and I will return here, hopefully soon!

Owner's Response: So glad so many return visitors are enjoying the house as we have. The house's location, in addition to it's floor plan, allows you to enjoy the island with a more comfortable and convenient touch. Reading this review makes me want to go back too.

A lovely house in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shells last month and had a wonderful time. The house exceeded my expectations and provided a wonderful place to stay for our vacation. It is located in a great area next to the ocean and adjacent to a greenbelt walking path (right out the back of the house). The walking path could take you to the beach and to some fun hiking areas or it could take you to the pool and tennis court areas (maybe 5 minutes). We also walked to some restaurants from the house but it might be little long for some people.

The Hyatt right next door has a starbucks so some mornings we walked to the Hyatt along the path and enjoyed a coffee on the patio.

The house was bright, cheerful and open. We found everything we needed to enjoy our vacation from kitchen utensils to beach stuff and towels to books and DVDs and games for kids. The place was very well stocked.

The floorplan is excellent if you're traveling with other people or family members. The big master suite is on one side of the house and the two other bedrooms and bath were on the other side for just enough privacy.

We loved hanging out in the courtyard with the small deck and barbeque. I loved just pulling out the chaise lounge chairs, grabbing a book and a cold drink and spending the afternoon in the quiet yard that is enclosed and cannot be seen from the road side or the greenbelt side-nice!

Thanks for such a nice house in such great condition!

Shells at Poipu

  • 4 of 5

I just return from a 6 night stay at the house, Shells at Poipu. It was a family vacation for 3 sisters and my grown son. The house was spacious and we had plenty of room. This house is so well stocked, I would recommend getting there before doing your shopping. It may have what you need. There is a large communal container of things that past guests have left behind. We used some of those items as well as left some of our items behind. If you need it-this house probably has it.

All the appliances are of top quality with a great washer and dryer.

If you head in one direction on the path in front of the house you get to a great beach view within a short walk. The pool is in the other direction. It was very crowed. It is part of a condominium complex that seems to be full of retirees. They use the pool as a a social lounge in the evening. We tired one other time in the morning to swim and there was a water aerobic class going on. We did not go back after that. Further down the patch is a wonderful beach park. You can walk but if you have gear and are planning on spending the day you are better of driving.

The house in general is very well maintained and clean with one exception, The jetted tubs were filthy. My sisters and I are bath takers. After seeing the tubs we know a bath would not be a part of our stay. By day 3 one of my sisters decided she had to soak and she used some spray cleaner and a toothbrush to clean the jets. We all bathed but were unable use the jets because the vision of the dirty jets was etched in out minds.

My only other complaint is the quality of the beds in the 3rd bedroom. This seems to be a children's room and the beds are bad. We ended up having to rotate sleeping in one of the good beds so you could a good nights sleep very 3rd night. The pull out bed in the living room is also not a good option. The coach was actually better than the beds. The beds in the other 2 rooms were very good.

If i were asked, would you go back? I would say yes! The is a good home with great value. It is cozy, clean-mostly, private and we were comfortable and felt very safe.
