Owner purchased this house in 2012
Why Owner chose Poipu
We love Kauai, The South shore seems to have some of the clearest turquoise waters and sunniest days, especially in Poipu. When there are clouds and rain all around we most frequently find a sky hole over Poipu and the sun shining through.
What makes this house unique
In an area that has mostly resorts and condominiums this is a whole house in a new private community next to a golf course and a few blocks from the some of the most top rated beaches in the world for a family vacation.
If anyone is interested in surf lessons, we can accommodate you with personalized one-on-one lessons or small groups at a variety of local surf breaks. Transportation, surf boards, rash guard, and booties provided with lesson. Ask for scheduling and prices.
We now offer hiking tours!
A great opportunity to see some of the breathtaking back county and vistas some of the most scenic spots on earth. Jack can accommodate small group excursions, or one-on-one guided trips customized to your ability and time schedule.
Our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed this house. The house is well furnished, and has a kitchen that has all the necessities. It is away from the crowds, but very close to everything in Poipu. Kauai is perhaps the prettiest of the Hawaiian islands, We wish we had planned to spend more time on this island. We love the screened lanai and the two master suites. The washer and dryer were helpful. The house was clean, the owners helpful and the location perfect for our plans of going to the Napali coast to snorkel and see the sights. I would recommend this house to anyone.
This home was ideal for six of us (3 adult couples). It could accommodate eight family members or friends, and still feel comfortable. The floor plan worked well for our group with a private bedroom and bath for each couple. The common spaces, kitchen, living room and dining area on the lanai, provided flexibility and functionality for a variety of indoor activities. Plenty of windows and the screened lanai provided for cross-breeze ventilation.The two-car garage had space for our rental vehicles plus plenty of equipment to freely use for nearby beach fun, such as snorkeling and boogie boarding. The Kukui'ula Village Shopping Center, within walking distance, has several good, reasonably-priced restaurants offering diverse menu selections. We enjoyed several meals there within the shopping center's festive atmosphere. The house's location was convenient for day trips around the island. The homeowner was very accommodating, but made sure he did not intrude on our privacy. The house felt like our home soon after our arrival and we hated to leave.
I just want to say how wonderful this home was for our entire family. Big open plan allowed all 7 of us to roam and not get in each other's way. Everything that we could possibly want or needed was provided. The beach was only a short 10 min walk away and the area was absolutely beautiful! Great value for this lovely, lovely home! Thank-you Jack!
The house is adorable and well-appointed and in a great location. The separate upstairs master and entrance was great for the younger couple in our group who were often on a different schedule than the rest of the group. All of the rooms were nicely appointed and very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook. We were surprised at how useful having the washer and dryer was and used them more than we expected!
The location is great; you can walk to the beach or drive to a number of beaches and nearby activities and restaurants. The chickens and roosters will wake you up in the morning, but you will find that in all of Kauai. This is a great location in a quiet neighborhood.
The only issue we had with our stay was that there were ants everywhere in the kitchen. We had to keep all of our food in the refrigerator to try to keep the ants at bay, but they were still crawling on the counters and even coming out of the toaster throughout our whole stay. Jack said they had recently sprayed to try to combat the issue, so hopefully that problem will be resolved soon. Besides the ants, we had a very pleasant stay.
There are two fantastic features about this home that I want to share:
1. This home is very spacious. There is a separate entry, bedroom, and bath on the second floor, which was a pleasant surprise for one of the couples staying with us. Our two kids and friends loved the main area downstairs. The half outdoor/indoor dining room is a design treat - overlooking the garden, ocean, and birds of paradise couldn't be any more relaxing. The outdoor grill was used several times, the garage with beach supplies (boogie boards, surf board, chairs, mats, etc.) was a huge bonus, and the fact that the location is next to all the best resorts, the best beaches, the best food, is what made this place unbeatable. Staying in a resort is like staying in a nice apartment, whereas this is the home that you want to stage adventures from and come back to each night (possibly for the rest of your life because I did not want to leave).
2. Jack is the man. He was the most considerate and hospitable VRBO owner that I've had the privilege of working with. His follow-up calls to ensure our stay was pleasant or to see if we needed anything was very much appreciated. Their are a couple "Jack" surf paintings in the home, which we found to be inspired and made us feel like guests at ease with our new surroundings. We visited Kauai to attend a destination wedding (100+ guests) and our experiences at Jack's home were unmatched. We felt very lucky to have found this gem. Thank you again!
We LOVED staying here! It was perfect for me and my family. My parents, sister, two brother's and sister in law stayed here for a week in October of 2013. More than enough room for all of us! It is beautifully decorated, and Jack was so accommodating! Perfect for a little privacy and just a short walk to the beach. The location was also great as it is right down the street from shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend this place! It was a great find for us. and if we are lucky enough to take another trip to Kauai, we will definitely be contacting Jack. thanks Jack!
