About Ilona

My husband and I purchased this home in 1999 and thought we had died and gone to heaven. While working on a project on another island we decided to 'share' our home with vacationers and tested out the Vacation Rental business. Our guests loved the house as much as we did and so when we came back we had to purchase another home to accomodate all the bookings that had been taken. We ultimately have built a similar house to this one because we loved it so much and are now living there while continuing to offer the Waterfall House experience to our guests. We have many guests that return year after year and are so glad that we are able to continue to provide this home.

Ilona purchased this house in 1999

Why Ilona chose Poipu

There is an unseen energy at the Waterfall and if you are aware,you will feel the subtle sweetness while you are there. We are on an interior lot on the Kiahuna Golf Course which means you won't see any golfers from the house, in fact you won't see much of anything except the pool, the heiau, and if someone comes to the door you will only be able to see them with the Video Doorbell located at the gate outside the courtyard. Very private.

What makes this house unique

Being able to stay in a home on Kauai gives you a more authentic experience and can be so much more relaxing, not having to get dressed to go to dinner. Most of our guest really enjoy the fact that we have both indoor and outdoor dining, and with all the FRESH FISH available on Kauai they really enjoy the gas grill. The house has such a retreat feeling that most people hate to leave and often return to stay with us again. Being able to prepare a meal, here and there in our great kitchen can really be a time and money saver, it's nice not to HAVE to pay $10 for a glass of orange juice, and cocktails by the pool are quite nice as well.

Great Base to enjoy Kauai

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here with a total of 6 adults. 2 couples and two friends. Which made the bedroom layout great. 2 Kings, and a pair of twin beds. The master is on one end of the bedroom "wing" and then the two bedrooms surround the pool. The 2 bedrooms share a bathroom but there is a 3rd bathroom off the kitchen/den area. We never really felt that we were on top of each other, there are so many private places to go read or relax.

The house is well built. But you can tell it was built in the early 90's. This isn't a bad thing but you should know going in. It's not the latest fashion or style. It is however very clean and any wear is within reason.

The neighbourhood is very quiet and the house is a 5 min drive to Starbucks and "Poipu proper".

Ilona was great to communicate with. Always very professional, and very responsive. You can tell she cares about what is going on.

Overall the pictures that are posted are accurate which I always find important. We enjoyed our stay and would go back if we needed a good sized home for 6 guests.

We couldn't find the ocean view...

We couldn't find the ocean view...
  • 2 of 5
The house is lovely in the photographs, but a little "worn" inside. Little things like the bathroom door wouldn't completely close, the MBR shower door wouldn't close/leaked, the MBR furniture was worn, and the carpet in the living room wouldn't flatten, so it was a constant tripping hazard. Too bad, because the floor plan is nice, and the Bose sound system and the pool with the waterfall creates a nice outdoor oasis. The pool is smaller than it looks in the picture. The neighborhood is fine, and close to Poipu Village shopping. the owner should invest a little in upkeep. And, we searched for the ocean view, but couldn't find it...

Owner's Response: Aloha Lynn,

I am so sorry that we did not meet your expectations but I am not sure that you are actually reviewing my home, as I have never claimed, nor does any of my Listing information say we have an Ocean View?

Our home in Poipu is not new, but we maintain it in such a way as to deliver a great vacation experience to our guests. We have many guests that come back year after year some for as long as 8 years and some that stay with us for over a month at a time.

They, like you and your family, enjoy the pool and the floorplan, and the Bose sound system both inside and out, and we do our best to update the decor on a regular basis. They seem to enjoy it as is evidenced by their reviews. You are the first person to ever give us less than 5 stars.

You may have notice the new furniture, in the 2 1/2 car garage, which is a gorgeous Tommy Bahama 4 poster Bed and Armoir that is just staged and ready to replace the Laquer Hereondon furniture in the Master. Our biggest challenge is having the time to make these changes with the short times we have between guests.

Again, I am sorry we did not meet your expectation, we try our best to be responsive and provide the best possible home for the best possible price.

I hope overall your experience on Kauai was a good one and that you will return to our beautiful Island to relax and restore, until then we are wishing you all,,,,

Warmest aloha,
Ilona

Wonderful Spacious Home; Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5
We were very fortunate to stay at the Waterfall House for our first trip to Kauai. The house was spacious and lovely, and the welcome basket/tray that Ilona had prepared for us was so thoughtful. She certainly made us feel very welcome. We had plenty of room for our family of four. We enjoyed the extremely private pool and waterfalls, and the landscaping was nothing short of amazing. The central location of the house allowed us easy access to fantastic restaurants and shopping locations and made day trips to Waimea Canyon or the Napali Coast simple. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Waterfall House and look forward to working with Ilona again for our next trip to Kauai.

Our Private Sanctuary and Refuge

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Waterfall House from Oct 30 thru Nov 8 and were extremely pleased with the clean, luxurious and exquisite furnishings amid the beautiful tropical surroundings. The house was open and airy, but private on all sides. Sliding glass doors allowed the fresh tradewinds to come in --so there was no need for air conditioning. The owners were very hospitable in providing food staples as we had a late arrival on Oct 30. The Waterfall House was indeed the ultimate private sanctuary and refuge from our usual hectic day-to-day lifestyle. It was very obvious that great care and consideration were taken when this house was furnished and decorated. It was exactly what we needed. We were able to pursue our diving, sightseeing, dining, and shopping interests, while also experiencing complete relaxation in the quiet, soothing setting in the house and at poolside. We really appreciated the convenience of the Waterfall House location to Poipu and other towns of Waimea, Hanapepe, Port Allen, Koloa, Lihue, as well as the beautiful South beaches, seeing extraordinary sights of Spouting Horn, Waimea Canyon, Polihale, and Napali Coast. Great lunches were had from the Koloa Fish Market, Shrimp Station, Merriman's, and Kalapaki Beach Hut. We had a very romantic birthday dinner our last evening at the Grand Hyatt Tidepools restaurant, and as well as very good dinners at Keoki's Paradise and Josselin's. The Big Save Supermarket in Koloa had everything we needed when we wanted our eat-in meals. Coming to and staying in Kauai at the Waterfall House will be in our fond memories for a long time. But, we hope to make more memories and visit Kauai again. If so, we hope to stay at the Waterfall House. Thank you, Ilona and Scott, for giving us the wonderful opportunity to share your beautiful home with us.

Far more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5
Having rented homes in Hawaii annually for many years, we have finally found the home we hope to rent each time we return from now on. The photos and descriptions are very accurate and helpful, but could never adequately describe this luxury home. It was far more than we expected.

Though there are many things to do, great places to eat, and beautiful places to see on Kauai, we've done most of them so we were very content to spend most of our time around the fantastic pool, cooking fresh local foods in the upscale kitchen, and walking in the quiet, peaceful, beautiful neighborhood.

The owners were a joy to work with and extremely honest, personable, and professional. Actually, as much as the home itself, the peace-of-mind of knowing the caliber of the owners and that there will be no issue that they will not do whatever it takes to rectify is as much the reason we hope to return to the "Waterfall House" as any. I'm sure they have many return guests, and I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for that perfect Hawaii vacation.
