About Ning Gulari

We are a family of four. Erdogan, Ning, Deniz and Bora Gulari. We live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Erdogan is a professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ning is a research engineer in the Electrical Engineering department. Bora is a graduate of the Aerospace Engineering Department and is a very accomplished sailor and currently spends most of his time sailing big boats. Deniz is a 6th grader full of curiosity.

We all live by 'be honest, work hard, play hard and enjoy life' Erdogan bought this Bird of Paradise Home in June 1992, a few months before the hurricane Iniki hit Kauai on September 11, 1992. At the time he was also the association president for the Makanui Condo Association and he came to the Island with the first flights from the mainland, bringing a generator along to power several of the neighboring homes. He also brought lots of tarpaulin (some of which you may still see in the garage) to distribute to neighbors and use in covering holes in the roof which we and the neighbors did get. We are planning to live in this home when we retire so we take care of it the best way we can and put all our effort and labor of love into it. We enjoy our vacations in Kauai and love to share the same experiences with you.

We started managing Bird of Paradise home and Hawaiian Hibiscus vacation rental home ourselves with the help of Kay & Bill Oldham, in May 2006. Before that the home was managed by a well-known management company with a nightly rate of $400-450* in 2005. We decided to take control after we found out that our management company actually charged 10-15% extra for our return guests who wanted to come back to Bird of Paradise home.

We value our guests very much and want to remain friends and share our love of Kauai with them. We are pleased to offer our high quality home to Kauai lovers at an affordable rental rate.

Mahalo and enjoy our Beautiful Kauai Island

Ning Gulari purchased this house in 1992

Why Ning Gulari chose Poipu

After looking at all the other Hawaiian islands ( excluding Molokai) it became obvious to us Kauai was by far the most beautiful and had the most friendly locals. We like water sports, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling etc. and we also liked the green lace like mountains of Kauai. Poipu had both great mountain views, some of the best beaches on the island and great snorkeling and easy access to Mahalepu our favorite beach for windsurfing. Our house has panoramic 270 degree views of the beautiful Hau'pu and Waimea mountain ranges great views of the sunrise in the morning. Our house is on the shoulder of the last active crater on Kauai and because of its high location nothing blocks this spectacular views!

What makes this house unique

Our guest said the view from our home is ' Views to die for' Just laying on the chaise lounge in the front lanai, watching coconut leave swaying in the wind, seeing 270 degree mountain to ocean view, I can only say you are in 'Paradise'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ning,

Yes, we had a wonderful time in your very relaxing home! It was perfect for all 6 of us and so accomodating. We were out most days but enjoyed card games (Apples to Apples) nightly at the big family dinner table. We did take advantage of your new lanai (in between rain drops)!!!

It was a great home away from home.

Your home is just that a HOME. We felt so comfortable in it. Even with ten
people we did not feel crowded at all. The view overlooking everything was
great! And once we understood the beltways - you could really get around to
everything we needed. Thank-you! for making our first family vacation an
experience we will want to do again soon.

P.S. Duane's burgers(Anahola) are better than Bubba's and JoJo's Shaved Ice(Waimea)is the best!

Perfect Home for a Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
Our family of seven (including two children under 5 years of age) recently spent two weeks at Bird of Paradise under the guise of 'celebrating mom's 75th birthday.'. We absolutely had a wonderful time -- the house was perfect for our needs: plenty of space, large lanais with amazing views, every kind of beach gear we could need, and of course the swimming pool which was perfect for keeping a 4 1/2 year old occupied for hours. The house is situated well within the Poipu township -- just a 2 minute drive to Poipu/Brenneke's beach, easy walking distance to the association pool and tennis courts, easy drive to all local amenities. Two farmers markets a week in Poipu/Koloaa made it so easy never to leave the general vicinity. We look forward to staying again.

Surpassed our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We has a wonderful time staying in this great house. It has an amazing layout. So much interior space. The house was clean and equipped with everything we needed. An unexpected surprise was all the pool toys, life jackets, snorkel gear and beach toys. The pool was the highlight for the kids. It was the perfect size and depth. Plus, it was fully fenced and we found a padlock to lock the gate for further piece of mind. Originally, when looking for a house to rent, I didn't want a pool for the safety factor. The set up at this house was absolutely perfect and worry free.

The deck space and views are gorgeous! The deck is huge! We all felt that the real view was far better than even the pretty online photos. The house sits up high so you can overlook the mountains and see a bit of ocean. The two outside dining tables really came in handy. If it was windy, the table under the covered patio was perfect and if we wanted more sun we sat at the other table.

The location of this property can't be beat. Having never been to Kauai we didn't really know where location-wise to be. This house is it!! Poipu beach is so close. An easy walk through a nice green belt. The Hyatt is in the other direction through another green belt. We walked there daily to enjoy a morning coffee on their beautiful lanai or a happy hour glass of wine. The grocery store was so close as well.

The owners were great to deal with. Very organized and gave us plenty of information/maps/directions about the island. I absolutely recommend this house and hope to go back back there soon! It played a major role in making our trip so amazing.

Good value, nice house for vacation.

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a 6 night stay. The pictures shown in the gallery are representative of the property (except that the carpet in living room was recently replaced with wood flooring - a bonus). The kitchen was well stocked with cooking hardware, the pantry had reasonable offerings (and we left some behind for the next person as well). The cleaning supplies (dishwasher and laundry) were well stocked as well. There are two washer and dryers in the garage, very helpful.

The property manager called the day after we arrived and was very helpful.

The pool is more of a dipping pool for cooling down in the afternoon, and was perfect for our kids.

We timed our walk to the beach from the house and it was 10:30 each way. No need to drive to a parking lot to access the beach.

Great house.

The tile floor could use some throw rugs. Our kids had some pretty bad slips after they got out of the pool. also the community pool was frigid ...I would definitely suggest heating it.

Owner's Response: I assume you meant the Poipu Kai community pool. I am so sorry to hear that your kids had a bad slips there. This is the reason why we have our heated private pool at the Bird of Paradise home. This pool is warm, clean, safe and right here at the Bird of Paradise home.
I already sent a suggestion to the Poipu Kai community pool committee to add more rugs on the tiles.
