Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Hideaway Cove Poipu Beach consists of seven air conditioned studio, one, two and three and five bedroom accommodations. We're located on a half acre of lush tropical landscaping, a short five minute walk to the white sands of Poipu Beach and the grassy lawn and picnic pavillions of Poipu Beach Park.

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.

For rates and availability just go to our website and click on Accommodations and Rates.

We live not far from the property and have been welcoming guests to our vacation rentals here in Poipu since 1999. We hope to be able to meet you in the near future.

Aloha from Kauai,

Herb and Gale Lee

Guestbook comments from the owner
Tucked away in a residential area just one block from Poipu Beach is Hideaway Cove Villas, our home for seven virtually perfect days and nights on our first visit to Kauai.

We arrived late at night and found our keys waiting for us along with a letter containing all the information we would need for our stay, and in the refrigerator was exactly what I needed most at that moment--a pitcher full of delicious, cold fruit drink.

The next day we went to Koloa just a short drive away and bought groceries for a week. We sampled the local restaurants but also were able to cook our own meals in our villa, which was a big advantage at times after a long day of sightseeing.

The villa was clean, modern, well equipped and tastefully furnished and was in a perfect location for excursions to Lihue for a helicopter tour, Port Allen for a boat tour of the Na Pali Coast or a day at Poipu Beach, voted sixth best of all the beaches in the Hawaiian Islands by the Travel Channel. It was wonderful lying on the beach and watching the humpback whales just a mile or two offshore.

The grounds were well groomed and beautifully landscaped to showcase Poipu's tropical location. The staff were all great. Diane in the office helped us reserve our villa and was exceptionally helpful making dinner reservations and other arrangements for us during our stay.

Herb Lee, the owner, helped us in ways that no major resort owner would have considered and we're grateful for his advice as well. There's no question in our minds that we'll return to Kauai for another visit, it's just a matter of deciding when's the best time to go, and when we do we wouldn't consider staying anywhere but Hideaway Cove.

Our first visit was our honeymoon but any return trip to Kauai will be special to us because of Herb and Gale and all the others who made the critical difference for us.

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'.

Herb purchased this house in 1999

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.

Over the years we've stayed in several of the Hideaway Cove accommodations including the Beachcomber and Dolphin Studios and the Seabreeze Two Bedroom. This year, with our 18-month old son, we decided to stay in the Aloha Two Bedroom and it was more than perfect fit. Although it's downstairs, the Aloha has ten foot ceilings and ocean views, giving this unit a much more spacious feeling. We really enjoyed all the room our son had to play, when you add in the two balconies this place is enormous. In addition, not having to carry his stroller up and down stairs was really a plus for us. Gale is always so helpful and this trip was no exception. She arranged for swimming lessons and the instructor was perfect. Plus her restaurant recommendations are always spot on, so we know we'll have a great meal wherever she suggests we go. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt the first part of our stay, and enjoyed Hideaway Cove leaps and bounds more, for many of the reasons in this review, along with the proximity to perfect kid friendly beaches and best sunset views on the island every night. We'll be back next year if not sooner, and are already looking forward to returning! I cannot say enough about how much we enjoy Hideaway Cove!

My husband and I stayed in The Dolphin during Christmas this year. Gale and Herb were lovely and helpful and even met us upon arrival and had a snack and delicious fresh juice for us. The location was great - just a few blocks to the beach and driving distance to other great towns and things to do. The kitchen and bathroom were perfect and while the bed was a great King size it was a little too soft for me. The only downside of the place was that the walls seemed really thin. We could hear our neighbors up every morning (very early!) making breakfast, which must have been the wall adjacent to our bed. We remedied this with ear plugs and everything else was just great!

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate your taking the time to write a review of your experience. We use a pillow top mattress pad plus a down pillow topper on top of a firm mattress. Most guests enjoy this, however had we known, we would have removed the pillow topper for you. Next time let us know right away.

We have now moved the bed off of the wall shared with the unit next door and have installed cabinet door dampers on the kitchen cabinets that you heard, so that noise has been eliminated.

Looking forward to seeing you again in the future!

Love love love this rental property and Herb and Gale! My friend and I came to Kauai to celebrate her birthday and we stayed in the Sea Breeze unit at Hideaway Cove. Herb and Gale are so lovely and have thought of everything to make your trip special. Communication was fast, transactions were easy, and directions were clear. When we arrived, we were delighted to find a warm welcome note and fresh squeezed juice in the fridge along with some chilled glasses. The suite actually appeared better than pictured and was clean and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was in working order. The jacuzzi was amazing! The best part about Hideaway Cove was that it felt like a home away from home. I can't wait to return!

All I have to say is that these people on here who say that this has "all the comforts of home" must have very comfortable homes! It was like home, but so much better! With their jacuzzi tubs, luxurious sheets, spacious rooms and living areas, beautiful gardens, and beautiful decorations, I didn't want to leave (and don't get me wrong, I love my home!).

We came here with my husband for a business trip. I had 2 kids under 2 and was on my own most of the time. So this place was perfect. Huge, fully stocked kitchens for cooking. Living areas comfortable to hang out and relax in. Close enough to the beach to head down there anytime. I loved being able to 2 laundry every day for free! And at the end of a long day, the spa quality organic soap, shampoo, lotion and a good soak in the jacuzzi tub was amazing. The sheets super soft, and the beds soo comfy! Friendly owners, accommodating but not overbearing. The rooms are super quiet and well laid out so you don't feel like you're all on top of each other. Cars tell me that other people were staying here, but I don't see or hear them!

The attention to detail is amazing and just really points to the great pride in ownership that the owners have in their place. Beach chairs and towels and ice chest came in very handy.

We did the resort thing the first business trip with my husband and realized that was a mistake, especially with kids. This was perfect, spacious, and luxurious. I loved it. I miss Poipu (the best part of the island, believe me I've spent a month there this year!) and the Hideaway Cove!

Condo was very comfortable with a full kitchen, livingroom, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Ample sheets, bath and beach towels. The condo was very clean and the property amenities were great! An easy walk to the beach and overall great location. I would definitely come back again and recommend to my friends and family.

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.

Other Activities: Helicopter adventures, ATVs, bicycle downhill, luaus, Napali sunset dinner cruises, snorkeling trips by boat and from shore, scuba diving from shore and by boat, snuba, rubber raft adventures into ocean caves, ocean kayaking, river kayaking, zip-lining, hiking, golfing, deep sea fishing, rainbow trout fishing, movie tours in an air conditioned bus to the sites of well known movies and guided tours of the island.

Golf: Poipu Bay Resort, former home of the PGA Grand Slam, is less than a 10 minute drive from the property. This is the golf course for the adjacent Grand Hyatt Resort. 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. Kiahuna, Pua Kea, Waimea and the well known Prince Course in Princeville are not far away. Our concierge desk is happy to book tee times for you.
