About Tom Stirling

Our romance with the Hawaiian Islands began during our first vacation to the Big Island of Hawai'i in 1976. Since then my wife and I have visited many, many times. As our kids were growing up we would stay at my parent's time share on the Big Island for a month each summer. That never seemed to be enough for me and I was determined to purchase a home in Hawai'i and somehow eventually live there. My wife enjoyed our vacations, but was not so sure about purchasing a home in Hawai'i until we visited Kaua'i for the first time in 2001. After walking in the front door for the first time of what would soon be our Beach House in Kaua'i, she said 'Tom, if you buy this house for me I could live in Hawai'i.' Although I thought at first that she was joking, through quite a series of miracles we were able to purchase the property. Since then we attempted to make Kaua'i more and more our home. We lived at our Poipu Beach House part of the time each year, and spend the remainder at our home in Capistrano Beach, California, where Deena was a teacher. I am a helicopter pilot, and often spent my time off at our Kaua'i home making repairs, doing routine maintenance, and renovating. I completed an extensive remodel of the property during the first half of 2008. Our kids, now grown, allowed us to have more time to enjoy the romantic and relaxing Hawaiian lifestyle and culture together. I am a water person, so I couldn't be happier with the ocean in my back yard, and the constant sound of the Hawaiian surf splashing on the seawall. My wife loved to walk to Spouting Horn, the Botanical Gardens, shopping, restaurants, and the many beaches that are close by. Our pets are the sea turtles that live in the water in front of our home.

Tom Stirling purchased this house in 2001

The Ocean Really Is That Close

  • 5 of 5

The view through the carport is not an illusion, the ocean is that close to the water. You can watch surfers from the front of the house, along with sailboats and outrigger canoes. The house is a five minute walk from the Beach House restaurant, which has one of the best sunset views you'll ever experience. Next to the Beach House is a small beach for swimming and snorkeling. If you continue down the road you arrive at Spouting Horn.

You can have dinner inside or outside the house, while enjoying the ocean view. Your cooking is done with a view of the ocean. If eating is too much activity then just slump into one of the lounges on the deck and listen to the waves.

The town of Koloa is close by (10 minute drive) for all of your grocery needs. Go west to Waimea Canyon or east to Lihue, Kapaa and Hanalei Bay. You're centrally located for all the Kauai activities.

The only thing you really did to do once you arrive is unpack and enjoy.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Although we thoroughly read through reviews of Tom's place and had very high expectations, it was still an unbelievable sight when we stepped out of our cars onto his property. The ocean crashing, sea turtles swimming, surfers catching waves, and boats sailing by were all in the backyard! The over 120 feet of oceanfront property kept us outside the entire vacation. When we finally had to sleep, we went inside to only hear the ocean's waves crashing all around us. The inside was beautiful as well, but honestly, we lived outside the entire 4 days we were there. We truly hope to return soon with our grown family.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to go to Kauai for our 25th anniversary. I searched for months for a place to stay on the ocean and found the Beach House.I sent an email and Tom responded within 15 minutes. We made the decision to stay at the Beach House and it was paradise! The house is beautiful, and the ocean is incredible. We went to sleep every night listening to the waves. The sea turtles visited us every night. The house is conveniently located on the south side, and easy access to shopping, beaches and restaurants. We had so much fun snorkeling. We loved sitting on the lanai just watching and listening to the ocean. Wish we could have stayed longer, hopefully we can come back soon.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tom's home. It is indeed a home, so come expecting to find it clean and comfortable and ready to enjoy. Tom is meticulous in the care of his home and we urge anyone staying there to do the same. We treated it as our own home and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect, the view is gorgeous (beautiful sunsets), lots of food and activities available nearby. Thanks Tom for providing such a great spot to relax and enjoy Kauai. You're a great host!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you just luck out and strike gold. We certainly did when we came across Tom and his beautiful beach house on Turtle Bay. From the moment we first arrived and found Tom waiting for us and immediately saw a whale breach in the ocean directly behind him, things just got better. We had planned this trip with our two grown children who flew in from the east coast with friends to meet us in Kauai after our earlier visits to the big island and Oahu. This was our first time in Kauai and we were looking forward to our first vacation with both kids in several years. Tom's beach house proved not only the perfect setting for experiencing the beauty of the island, it was the ideal location for relaxing, touring the island, finding good restaurants, farmers markets and everything else you would want to experience about Kauai. The only negative to report is our stay there was only 9 days long and much too short. All else exceeded our expectations. You can read about the location of this house and it's convenience and beauty, the trade winds, the sounds of the surf, the shows put on by the whales, the sea turtles, the amazing sights you'll see snorkeling, the convenient beach and it's all real. But when you actually experience this amazing place you'll find just how real all of that is. The best part of our whole experience was getting to know Tom. Tom takes meticulous care of his home and makes you feel like you're a guest he is sharing his home with you. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms are private and comfortable, the kitchen is modern and the ocean is in view from everywhere in the house. There are even mirrors on the back wall of the kitchen which reflect the ocean. The house was spotlessly clean and every knife in the kitchen was razor sharp. But mostly we enjoyed our visits with Tom and left for home knowing we had a new friend on Kauai. We will be back, Tom...

Great Home, Great Landlord

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege to stay in Tom's home for six weeks. The house is lovely, not too large...but more than ample room. The location is perfect, a private lane on water's edge, walk to the shopping center, walk to restaurants. Tom is a terrific host! There if you need anything, but not overbearing. He has become a good friend! If you value peace, privacy and want to experience the serenity of the ocean at your door, this is the pace for you! Mahalo, Tom.
