We live in Ann Arbor Michigan, which makes us appreciate the warmth of Kauai. We work hard and play hard. We always find excuse to be on Kauai for home improvement, so our guest return will always see something new every time. One of our goal is to hear from you that you love staying at our home. We want to make you feel that you are truly on vacation while staying at Hibiscus home. Just bring your sunglass, sunscreen, swimming suite and relax...

Ning Gulari purchased this house in 2008

Why Ning Gulari chose Kauai

We love Poipu with its perfect balance of good weather and great beaches. We also like our privacy, quiet and peace when we are on vacation. The location of this house, Kiahuna Golf Village, arguably the most desirable community to live in on the south shore, great neighbors, lack of traffic and proximity to all the beaches we like: Poipu, Shipwreck and Mahaulepu made us choose this house over many others available at the same time.

What makes this house unique

We love the design of the house with high ceiling and multi-level floor plan and all the comfortable furniture; excellent beds and sofa. There are so much space in this home for every one for their own privacy and at the same time you feel that you are connect to everyone whenever you need to. We love the peacefulness with lot of wild life birds (especially parrots) and chicken near by and we can spot them anytime during the day. We have great privacy in our backyard surrounding with flowering and fruit trees. There are fresh avocados on the tree year round that we can pick whenever we need one. We swim in the pool while watching the palm trees sway in the wind, absorb sunshine and listen to birds chirping. We love to be in the spa at night watching dark sky with lots of milky way. We appreciate our quiet neighborhood. Our children can run around with very low traffic outside. We love morning walk, jog around neighborhood or even run in the golf at the sunset. We love having breakfast while seeing sunrise from our backyard and of course lot of bird chirping like they just want to be around us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WE had a great time - lovely house and plenty of room. WE ate most of our meals there and were delighted to find spices, condiments, etc left by others. It was easy to get to the variety of things to do. The managers were easy to get in touch with when we had any questions and helped us finding golf courses to play. Mahalo to everyone.

Great family and extended family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group of grandparents, parents and 3 small children. The home is spacious and as described in the listing. The neighborhood is peaceful and close to the beach and shopping. The house was clean with comfy beds and furnishings. It was great having our own pool, and really nice to not smell like chlorine. Also great to have all the baby gear - highchairs, playpens and baby gates. The kitchen was extremely well stocked. The coffee maker quit working and Evan, the property manager, had another one there in less than an hour. Evan was more than helpful answering questions about things to see and do. We had an awesome time and we would highly recommend this property for large families or a groups.

Loved the warm Pool!

  • 5 of 5

The house was well equipped and there was plenty of room for our two families totalling 11 of us. If there was anything we'd suggest is curtains on the second living room area and a memory foam or something on the hide-a-bed for anyone who is using the second living room as a bedroom.

The location of the house and area is great and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub.

Thanks Evan for being so hospitable when we arrived.

We had a wonderful holiday!!!

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you had a wonderful holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the warm private pool and the hot tub. Our home is in the prestigious Kiahuna Golf Village and only 1.3 mile to Poipu Beach (one of the best beaches on Kauai). The house has 5 bedrooms that can accommodate everyone comfortably with privacy. For extra guests (>10 people), we have the second living room, with Lazy-Boy convertible queen and twin sofas. We will get memory foam topping so that whoever sleep in the second living room will be more comfortable. This room has doors which can be closed to block noise from other rooms. We have curtains on the windows/doors blocking sunrise. I believe you meant it would be nice to have curtain on the door between the main living room and the second living room. That is a good suggestion and we will have the curtains on the door next month (as of April 2017).

Holiday extravaganza success!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a fantastic time at this well-appointed home. There was ample room for four families with children ages 9-16. The adults cooked up culinary delights in the large kitchen while the children were in and out of the pool and spa day and night.

Evan was very conscientious about maintenance.

We snorkeled, tubed, ziplined , hiked, and enjoyed the local beaches.

The house is in a safe and lovely neighborhood.

Everything was in working order with a good supply of regular necessities. Would recommend it to large groups, families, all ages. We had the vacation of a lifetime!

What an amazing Kauai vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and a friend's family of five stayed at this wonderful home for a full week. The location is fantastic, just a few minutes from Poipu beach as well as from downtown Koloa for wonderful food/market options (go to Koloa fish market for outstanding Poke or just buy a big chunk of fresh Ahi caught off their own boat!). The house itself was extremely clean when we arrived and it has everything you'll need: lots of sleeping space in very comfortable beds; a huge kitchen with multiple fridges, two stovetops, two dishwashers, two sinks, ample space for cooking and saving money from eating out (go to Costco when you arrive!); small but definitely sufficient pool and hot tub on a great deck with lots of space (kids LOVED this!); tons of pool/beach toys that you won't have to buy/rent (boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, floats, beach chairs, coolers, etc. Furthermore, Evan was a huge help with giving us advice on things to do close to the house, and he was always available if we needed anything or had any questions. Ning, the owner, was also wonderful throughout the booking process all the way through checkout. We had a great vacation staying at this home, and I highly recommend it for a similar size group. Enjoy!

Dream Staycation

  • 5 of 5

We MORE THAN enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. The pictures are gorgeous but it still somehow doesn't do the home justice. We are still talking about what a wonderful time we had. We went swimming in the salt water (no chlorine smell and drying out your hair!), heated swimming pool every day. We did a bunch of cooking while there and all of the appliances worked perfectly and were VERY clean and there was nothing that we needed that the house didn't have. The property manager Evan was very helpful and friendly but never intrusive. I wish there were something that I could suggest or recommend be changed but there honestly isn't. It was truly a wonderful place that brought so many great memories for our family. Thank you Ning! You made the whole process so easy and I felt so kept in the loop. If I had to choose one favorite feature, I would say the pool. I didn't want to go anywhere else once we got there. Best staycation we've ever had.

It's large and well stocked in kitchen, beach items etc.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived earlier than 4:00 but was told it should be ready. They were still doing some cleaning but that was fine since we were there sooner. I had requested that a room that had two twins be changed to s King, but they hadn't done that. They came back the next day to change it out. The owner later told me she hadn't seen my email when I sent it. That was no problem. They had everything you would need. The spa turned off the first day but we called the man whom had cleaned the house and said it was a fuse, east fix, no problems after that. I would suggest they take the row of rocks out of the grass by driveway. It got in the way of opening our car doors. They were pulled from the grass and moved slightly back but I think people could trip over them and get injured also. The pool and spa was nice. Lots of be beach and pool equipment to use. I would Reccommend staying at this house, gray location to shopping plaza and near beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments regarding our home’s great location: near shopping plaza and beaches, nice private pool and spa and lots of home amenities. After booking, later you informed me that you planed to host a bachelor party at the house on Sept 10 and wanted to rent extra tables/chairs for the party night involving 25 people. We could not accommodate your request because the house is for up to 13 people, in a peaceful residential area and we rented our home with the rental agreement that there will be no party and no smoking inside the house. We asked our friend, Kauai personal concierge (free of charge), to help you with arrangements of the bus transportation and wedding party. We are glad that everything went well and you enjoyed your stay. Our driveway is large enough to park up to 4 normal vehicles without hitting anything. We will make sure the rocks are moved slightly back on the lawn and are not in the way. Our homeowners association does not permit parking on the grass overnight. Therefore the coconuts/small lava rocks are put on the periphery of the front lawn to prevent parking on the lawn. Our home has 3 king bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms, any request for converting twin beds to a king bed can be done easily so you can have all 5 King bedrooms for your stay. Finally our standard check-in time is at 4 PM but if guests arrive significantly earlier the cleaning crew might still be there. We ask guests to contact our home manager, letting him know when they plan to be at the house. In case guests arrive early while the crew is still cleaning the house, they can drop their bags in the garage and take beach towels, boogie boards and beach chairs to enjoy the beach for a few hours. We take pride in providing our guests with a great home in a great location and all the amenities our guests will need during the fabulous vacation.
