About Ning Gulari

We are a family of four. Erdogan, Ning, Deniz and Bora Gulari. We live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Erdogan is a professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ning is a research engineer in the Electrical Engineering department. Bora is a graduate of the Aerospace Engineering Department and is a very accomplished sailor and currently spends most of his time sailing big boats. Deniz is a 6th grader full of curiosity.

We all live by 'be honest, work hard, play hard and enjoy life' Erdogan bought this Bird of Paradise Home in June 1992, a few months before the hurricane Iniki hit Kauai on September 11, 1992. At the time he was also the association president for the Makanui Condo Association and he came to the Island with the first flights from the mainland, bringing a generator along to power several of the neighboring homes. He also brought lots of tarpaulin (some of which you may still see in the garage) to distribute to neighbors and use in covering holes in the roof which we and the neighbors did get. We are planning to live in this home when we retire so we take care of it the best way we can and put all our effort and labor of love into it. We enjoy our vacations in Kauai and love to share the same experiences with you.

We started managing Bird of Paradise home and Hawaiian Hibiscus vacation rental home ourselves with the help of Kay & Bill Oldham, in May 2006. Before that the home was managed by a well-known management company with a nightly rate of $400-450* in 2005. We decided to take control after we found out that our management company actually charged 10-15% extra for our return guests who wanted to come back to Bird of Paradise home.

We value our guests very much and want to remain friends and share our love of Kauai with them. We are pleased to offer our high quality home to Kauai lovers at an affordable rental rate.

Mahalo and enjoy our Beautiful Kauai Island

Ning Gulari purchased this house in 1992

Why Ning Gulari chose Kauai

After looking at all the other Hawaiian islands ( excluding Molokai) it became obvious to us Kauai was by far the most beautiful and had the most friendly locals. We like water sports, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling etc. and we also liked the green lace like mountains of Kauai. Poipu had both great mountain views, some of the best beaches on the island and great snorkeling and easy access to Mahalepu our favorite beach for windsurfing. Crestview is the best location in Poipu Kai. Our house has panoramic 270 degree views of the beautiful Hau'pu and Waimea mountain ranges great views of the sunrise in the morning. Our house is on the shoulder of the last active crater on Kauai and because of its high location nothing blocks this spectacular views!

What makes this house unique

Our guest said the view from our home is ' Views to die for' Just laying on the chaise lounge in the front lanai, watching coconut leave swaying in the wind, seeing 270 degree mountain to ocean view, I can only say you are in 'Paradise'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ning,



Yes, we had a wonderful time in your very relaxing home! It was perfect for all 6 of us and so accomodating. We were out most days but enjoyed card games (Apples to Apples) nightly at the big family dinner table. We did take advantage of your new lanai (in between rain drops)!!!



It was a great home away from home.

Your home is just that a HOME. We felt so comfortable in it. Even with ten

people we did not feel crowded at all. The view overlooking everything was

great! And once we understood the beltways - you could really get around to

everything we needed. Thank-you! for making our first family vacation an

experience we will want to do again soon.

Mahalo - Rosa Whipple

P.S. Duane's burgers(Anahola) are better than Bubba's and JoJo's Shaved Ice(Waimea)is the best!

A wonderful Thanksgiving vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our three families. The large, open, main living area provided plenty of space for everyone, and the outdoor decks allowed us to eat almost all of our meals "al fresco". We made good use of the kitchen and gas barbecue, as well as the salt water pool. The house was extremely clean and very well decorated. All beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were very nice. The ample supply of boogie boards and snorkel gear, along with a nice supply of beach gear, chairs, toys, etc., meant we didn't have to purchase any of these items for our short 5 night stay. The views from the house were very enjoyable and the location is very close to Poipu beach along a nice paved walking path. We ate at many of the restaurants suggested by our local host, Evan, and visited as many sights as possible. The guide books that were on hand at the house provided good information on which beaches were best for kids, snorkeling, and boogie boarding. We thoroughly enjoyed the drives and sights up Waimea Canyon and the trip up to Hanalei. The local Poipu area has great restaurants, beaches, and shopping. The owner was very easy to work with and made sure all of our questions were answered. We highly recommend this house to all, and especially for families.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our family has just had its best vacation ever, thanks in large part to our positive experience with the owner, and of course the home itself. The home was ideally situated to the many activities we pursued: snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking, watching the sunrise from the cliffs over Shipwreck Beach, and dining at nearby fabulous restaurants. Most importantly your home provided us with the opportunity to be together as a family. So much better than being in a hotel! This house is so well laid out, extremely well equipped, and beautifully decorated. I cannot think of a thing we lacked. The owner made the whole rental process so easy by being so communicative with us from the very beginning. I highly recommend this property to everyone. I know we hope to enjoy another stay there one day.

Perfect location, perfect home for grandparents + kids and gradkids, perfect amenities

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to spend a week in Kauai with our daughter and her family - party of 8. This home was perfect in every way. We had our own bungalow separate from the rest of the family. The home is walking distance to gorgeous beaches and great restaurants. The views are spectacular and all the little details (soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc.) were plentiful. We simply walked in and lived in Kauai for a week. We highly recommend this home and this location for a perfect Kauai vacation! Mahalo for all you did to make our stay comfortable and fabulous.

SIMPLY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? First, you WILL want to rent this incredible property, so be sure to get your dates in soon as it books fast. We almost missed out on the vacation of a lifetime, but luckily were able to secure this home for 3 families (6 adults, 3 kids). Each family had a room, bathroom, and privacy. The home owner, Ning, was always quick to respond and incredibly professional. Ning responded to all my inquiries and questions and was incredibly friendly throughout the initial process. Once in Kauai we pulled up to this amazing home, mouths agape and couldn't believe it was all ours! The location is AMAZING, truly 5 minutes to everything, best beaches, amazing eateries, zip-lining, snorkeling, ATVing, biking, etc. The kitchen is truly stocked with everything you could need and more, we made fruit smoothies every morning with the blender and vitamix! Having a private pool with the 3 kids truly made the trip, the little guys were not going to be able to safely enjoy the ocean water, but we sure got a lot of use out of the pool, 3 times a day use usually! Evan, the on site house manager, was incredible, he was on top of everything. The grill was giving low flame, we woke up to a NEW grill the next day, literally a new grill less than 12 hours after we asked. Evan was so helpful and communicative, anything we needed, any questions we had, he was knowledgeable, personable, and incredibly professional. The beds are comfortable, the living space is huge and accommodates many people allowing everyone to "have space". The views are indescribable, truly every morning was a gift, looking out over the mountain ranges and enjoying coffee and shakes on the porch that wraps around the house. I could go on for pages and pages, but we stayed 10 days and can attest to the beauty, location, and value of this amazing home. I am writing this review from the living-room as we are heading home tomorrow and already have friends who have made inquiries on the home for their own vacations after seeing our Facebook photos of the property. Thank you to Ning and Evan for this incredible family adventure, what an unforgettable Kauai property!
