We're one of the few Poipu properties our size with an office on property. We offer a 'Best Price Guarantee' for our guests. If you find a lower written price on an activity, we'll match or beat it.
We also can assist you in planning your stay on Kauai. Looking for that out of the way beach or waterfall or wondering which restaurants will be best for you or which of the many activity companies are the best at what they do? Gale has been helping visitors to Kauai since 1989.
If you need to check on events back home, we've got a dedicated computer in our office for you to check emails and print boarding passes. There's no charge and the office is available 24/7, just ask us for the code to the lock if we're not there.
We don't post an availability calendar because we will gladly upgrade you into a larger unit if a smaller one is not available. Just email or call us toll free and we'll be happy to let you know which units are available for your dates.

Gale owned a glass bottom boat when she first came to Kauai. As the business grew, activity desks were leased to ensure a steady flow of customers for the boat. When Gale had the second happiest day of her business life (she sold the boat), the desks remained and Gale was then in the activity desk business as Kauai Vacation Helpers. She often jokes that one of the 'worst' parts of her job is having to test out all the activities to make sure they're o.k. for our guests.
Herb's been in the residential real estate business since he first got his license in Huntington Beach, California. Sixteen years ago, Herb was recruited by a friend to work as Director of Marketing for a resort on Kauai, and has been here every since. Since leaving the resort nine years ago, Herb has been actively involved in Hideaway Cove doing marketing, designing websites Hideaway Cove and Kauai Vacation Helpers, blogging and writing our newsletter 'FYI Kauai'.
We have both travelled extensively and talked about owning vacation rentals that had everything in them that we wished for in the places we've stayed. Most important to us was a very good bed with high quality linens and towels plus quality furnishings. We both enjoy cooking and wanted our kitchens to have granite counters for easy cleaning and ceramic top stoves for the same reason. Jacuzzi or deep soak tubs and walk in showers and granite counters turn what could be a ordinary baths into something extraordinary. cleanliness.
When Herb first moved to Kauai he rented what is now our Aloha Two Bedroom, Two Bath and became fast friends with the owners, Dick and Donna Page. And when they decided to sell the building next door, Herb was the first person they asked. Initially the building had long term rental tenents and we converted it into vacation rentals nine years ago.
Due to the high cost of electricity, very few of the vacation rentals on Kauai are air conditioned. We decided to add air conditioning to stand out from the crowd. For the same reason, we added an office and large guest laundry room on property, in space which had originally been planned as a studio accommodation. We even have the deep soak tub, four poster bed and name plate to go outside the door to prove it. Having an office allows us to give our guests a very high level of service. We are also very attentive to even the smallest details,personally inspecting our units frequently for cleanliness and wear and tear. We are constantly upgrading everything on property including barbecues, furniture, beds (two new king beds added recently)and kitchen appliances and 'tools'. We work very hard to provide a high quality guest experience which we beleive is the key to our success and the reason our guests come back year after year.
Poipu Beach is a resort area with shopping, grocery stores and ten restaurants located within a mile of the property. The beach has twice been named the number one beach in the United States and is the only beach on the south shore of Kauai that is life guarded. This is also a great spot to take surfing and stand up paddle boarding lessons (SUP). You can picnic, swim, snorkel and sunbathe at the beach. We provide beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler for you to fully enjoy the beach.
The adjacent Poipu Beach Park offers covered picnic pavilions, barbecues, a play ground for children, beach showers, public bathrooms and lots of open grassy areas to sunbathe or picnic.
Brenneckes Beach is next to Poipu Beach and is widely considered the best boogie boarding beach on Kauai. We also rent boogie boards and snorkel gear and can have them waiting on your lanai when you arrive.

The course is beautifully designed with many of the holes on the ocean in Poipu. The clubhouse, which is located on the lake at the 18th hole, is a great place for lunch. At dinnertime the restaurant transforms itself into Yum Sa, a terrific Asian themed restaurant run by the Grand Hyatt.
