Please call me, Tom Stirling (owner), for more information about our beautiful Beach House at 808-755-5115. Please call me before Requesting A Booking.

The Beach House is an oceanfront home, located on the beautiful sunny south shore of Kaua'i. It is literally 30 feet from the water’s edge. Watch the sunset every evening on the horizon, illuminating the clouds and the sky into brilliant patterns and hues. The sea turtles swim constantly at water’s edge, and the surfers perform defiant maneuvers on the blue breaking waves beyond. The house is open and Hawaiian Style and spotlessly clean.

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 condo 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 Po'ipu Beach House part of the time each year, and spent the remainder of our time 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 have been the sea turtles that live in the water in front of our home. I am now a permanent Kaua'i resident, living and enjoying the Hawaiian lifestyle in Po'ipu.

This was our second visit to Tom's beach house, and it was lovely! The house is just as we remembered it. The views are exceptional - we loved sitting out by the wall and watching the turtles nip at the rocks, and the crabs run away from us... It was a very peaceful and restorative vacation! Just what we needed.
It was quite hot the week we were there, and during a couple hours a day we wished there was more breeze or a/c (or portable fans?), but we either just went swimming or out exploring instead. Last time we were here, it wasn't in August, so the heat wasn't so bad! We went snorkeling about twice a day - and saw lots of fish, a few eels, lots of honu, and even a sting ray! Watching the surfers was also a treat. The parakeets every night and morning were quite the sight - thousands of them - we loved watching them fly back and forth. And we were there during the Perseids, so each night we sat outside and watched the shooting stars!
The house is very convenient to a small grocery store, drug store, and a number of restaurants, so we were glad to be able to walk to a bunch of places. I would recommend stocking up at the Safeway or something near the airport, though.
Tom was very kind and always available if we needed anything - it was always a pleasure chatting with him. We definitely plan on returning! Thanks, Tom, for again sharing your lovely home with us!
Kauai's Beach House
The Beach House is in a primo location in Poipu, Kauai. You can watch the surfers from sunrise to sunset, and seeing the green Hawaiian sea turtles feeding around noon every day from the backyard - which is THE OCEAN! You can easily access the beautiful ocean as well for some snorkeling or surfing. An outdoor shower and hose help with all those ocean/sandy days. The home itself is immaculate, with ample room for 6 guests. It has a washer/dryer, beach towels and a well stocked kitchen for all your needs. The entire backside of the house is glass that opens up to the outdoors, where you will spend almost all of your time! There is no A/C so it can be adjustment for those used to A/C, but the windows are easily opened to allow for cross winds and cooling inside the home. This area of the neighborhood is quiet. Very close to all the shops and restaurants and great beaches! Thank you Tom for being a great host and being available for any needs! We love Kauai!
Inviting home in a perfect location
We just returned from spending six days at The Beach House Kaua'i where we enjoyed a carefree vacation in your lovely house. It was equipped with thought to everything anyone could possibly need! We spent the days visiting the surrounding beaches where my grandson could surf, and the best snorkeling was right in our own backyard! My family thanks you for a great vacation!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
The photo showing the table on the lanai overlooking Kuhio Cove and the Pacific Ocean says it all!
This was the PERFECT vacation spot for our family to enjoy all that Kauai has to offer. The location is excellent--directly overlooking the ocean. It's near Spouting Horn, the botanical garden, historic Old Town Koloa, the sandy beach at Poipu, and some great shopping and dining.
The home is PRISTINE. When I say that, you can't imagine how clean and well kept this home is. Probably the cleanest vacation rental we've ever stayed in.
The kitchen is very well stocked with all you'll need and well organized.
The owner, Tom, is very accommodating and explains the home and the area in great detail upon your arrival. He's available for any needs or questions and is a gracious host.
The beds are comfortable. Much better than traditional hotel fare.
Multiple windows (screened) allow enjoyment of the trade winds and the sounds of waves lapping on the shore.
We particularly enjoyed the use of the outdoor shower. Showering while overlooking the ocean by the light of the moon and stars was a treat!
The scent of Plumeria provided a nice welcome every time we entered the house.
Our son enjoyed treating us to some meals on the grill. Very nice to have.
Multiple seating options for meals, lounging, etc.
Views of the ocean from kitchen, master bath, master bedroom, extra bedroom, dining room, den, etc. Honestly, only one room in the house (3rd bedroom) is the only place where you don't see the ocean!
The back yard is wonderful. Grassy lawn and palm trees make sitting out and enjoying the sun and scenery so enjoyable.
Our favorite nearby beach (and scenic views) at Mahaulepu beach and Makauwahi Cave were only about 10 min drive.
We enjoyed eating and shopping at the Shops of Kukui'ula which are literally walking distance away. The Wednesday Market was such a treat (Sugarloaf pineapple can't be missed!)
Try Uncle's Shave Snow! YUM!
(or Luppert's Kauai Pie" Ice Cream)
It's only 20 minutes from the Kauai Coffee Plantation and 25 minutes from the Port where tours leave for Na Pali coast.
It's only about 35 minute drive to Waimea Canyon which we thoroughly enjoyed.
A short 25 minute drive to Lihue (the capital and airport).
I can't say enough good about this property, the owner, the island of Kauai, etc.
Great place to enjoy family time. If you are going to Kauai, this is a hidden gem! (If you want sandy beach, it's a short walk)
Why I would come back
This property is blessed with a truly unique location, just feet from the ocean and an owner that appreciates it's uniqueness . Tom greeted us at The Beach House when we arrived and gave us the grand tour . He already knew the five of us by name . Every potential need had been addressed in advance . The three bedroom home was immaculate with all the amenities clearly labelled and easy to find . The mattresses are new , sheets crisp and towels fluffy . The layout of the home maximizes the ocean view .
At our request Tom recommended restaurants ( Beach House and Tide Pools ) , the best beaches to snorkel ( Lawai and Po'ipu ) and places to shop for food ( Big Save in Koloa ) .
Each and every recommendation was spot on .
The helicopter flight on the second day ( Blue Hawaii , hope you get Barrett as your pilot ) was incredible .
Tom checked in with me a couple of times via phone to ensure we were happy and that all our needs were met .
We have rented homes in the U.S. , Caribbean and Italy and we have not been more pleased with our experience than our stay at The Beach House .
There is no question about a return visit , it is just a matter of when.
Well done Tom !
