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 Poipu

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.

Fantastic For Large Group

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 8 adults and 3 children under the age of five, being able to stay under one roof was important to us for our family vacation. After much searching I came across the Hawaiian Hibiscus home rental. Ming, the owner, was very professional to deal with and I knew after speaking with her that this was the home for our gang. Evan, the house manager, was a wealth of information and very helpful with any of our needs. Home is well equipped and for those beach days you will find you need to just load up the gear available on the front lanai and head for the surf. Our group never needed to purchase a thing other than food and personal items, everything else was provided. We enjoyed the luxury of having a pool on the back lanai and the nightly star gazing while sitting in the hot tub was spectacular.

We had SUCH an amazing time at the Hawaiian Hibiscus House, Ning was so helpful and gave us so much information about Kauai and the inside scoop on places to visit on the island. We felt so at home as soon as we arrived. Everything in the house is so clean and nice, they even have a coffee maker and other little things in the kitchen that made our stay so much easier!

The location is so perfect too, really private but still close to shopping, the beach, and restaurants! We honestly could have just stayed at the house the whole time and been content without ever leaving.

Highly recommend!!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Home is very well set up for groups. We traveled with 6 adults and 6 kids and the place was perfect. Plenty of room for all; and, most importantly, all adults had king beds! House has plenty of beach gear for the family. Kids loved the boogie boards! Many added conveniences that you wont find for free at a hotel/resort.

Great home for a large family group with great kitchen amenities.

The pool area is very secure from the house which is a concern with small children. Very quiet backyard area and lovely neighborhood.

Christmas in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently enjoyed a two week stay here with our 3 adult children, their partners, and our 2 1/2 yr old grandson, and found Hibiscus House to be everything we were looking for, very well equipped for a large group. (2 gas cooktops, 2 sets of washer/dryer, 2 coffee pots etc.) Also well supplied with good quality small appliances and cookware, towels, extra bed linens, beach gear, even children’s toys. We tend to eat in most of the time, and enjoyed the large kitchen and dining room. The backyard is very private, lots of loungers and chairs, and the pool is larger than it appears in pictures.

The house has ample room for privacy for all, and is in a beautiful, quiet, safe neighbourhood, steps to golfing and a short walk to restaurants and shopping. And in Poipu you are never far from the beach.

Ning, the house owner, was great to deal with both before, during and after our visit. She and Evan, her property manager, were very attentive to any requests or concerns that we had, going out of their way to make us feel welcome and well taken care of.

Ning and Evan, thank you, and I would definitely recommend your house to a friend.
