About the property

Looking for ocean views from air conditioned comfort a short walk to the beach? We have all that and more! We're located on a quarter acre of lush tropical landscaping, a short five minute walk to white, sandy Poipu Beach, here on the sunny south shore of Kauai. This is our SeabreezeTwo Bedroom Two Bath with a large Hot Tub for four and is fully air conditioned for comfort and privacy.

When staying with us you'll enjoy a well equipped kitchen (we even have a garlic press), 50 "HDTV in the living room and HDTVs in both bedrooms, king and queen beds with pillow top mattresses and Egyptian cotton linens, a large walk in shower in one bath and a deep soak tub with shower in the other bath, granite counters in baths and kitchen plus an individual gas barbecue and outdoor dining on your private ocean view lanai. A second private lanai has our hot tub for four.

Our guests tell us they also appreciate our Personal Concierge Service by Kim, off street parking, high speed wi-fi property wide, beach chairs, beach towels and coolers, plus the use of laundry rooms with detergent and dryer sheets. All are complimentary.

Kim also rents snorkel gear and boogie boards and can have them waiting on your lanai when you arrive. Just ask her!

These photos are of our largest accommodation, that takes up the entire top floor of our building. You can see videos of the Seabreeze on YouTube by entering 'hideaway cove vacations' in their search bar. You'll also find a walking tour of our property there.

We're conveniently located in the heart of Poipu Beach. Two restaurants, a deli, surf shop and mini market are all within easy walking distance. This is a resort area with many more restaurants, a grocery store and shops located less than a mile away.

We have been welcoming guests to Hideaway Cove since 1999 and hope to have the opportunity of meeting you in the not too distant future.

Aloha from Kauai,

Herb and Gale

About Herb

Gale owned a glass bottom boat when she first came to Kauai. As the business grew, activity desks were leased to ensure a steady flow of customers for the boat. When Gale had the second happiest day of her business life (she sold the boat), the desks remained and Gale was then in the activity desk business as Kauai Vacation Helpers.

She often jokes that one of the 'worst' parts of her job is having to test out all the activities to make sure they're o.k. for our guests. It also means she is able to share the knowledge of Kauai she's gained over the past twenty years helping our guests. In 2017 our daughter Kim, who grew up on Kauai, took over Kauai Vacation Helpers and is doing a fantastic job helping our Hideaway Cove guests.

Herb's been in the residential real estate business since he first got his license in Huntington Beach, California. In 1993 Herb was recruited by a friend to work as Director of Marketing for a resort on Kauai, and has been here every since. Since leaving the resort Herb has been actively involved in Hideaway Cove doing marketing, designing websites for Hideaway Cove and Kauai Vacation Helpers, blogging and writing our newsletter 'FYI Kauai'. He also answers the phone, does basic maintenance and tinkers with the landscaping.

Herb purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Herb chose Poipu

We have both travelled extensively and talked about owning vacation rentals that had everything in them that we wished for in the places we've stayed. Most important to us was a very good bed with high quality linens and towels plus quality furnishings. We both enjoy cooking and wanted our kitchens to have granite counters for easy cleaning and ceramic top stoves for the same reason. Jacuzzi or deep soak tubs and walk in showers and granite counters turn what would be ordinary baths into something extraordinary.

When Herb first moved to Kauai he rented what is now our Aloha Two Bedroom, Two Bath and became fast friends with the owners, Dick and Donna Page. And when they decided to sell the building next door, Herb was the first person they asked. Initially the building had long term rental tenants and we converted it into vacation rentals in 1999.

What makes this cottage unique

Due to the high cost of electricity, very few of the vacation rentals on Kauai are air conditioned. We decided to add air conditioning to stand out from the crowd.

We are very attentive to even the smallest details, personally inspecting our units frequently for cleanliness and wear and tear. We constantly upgrade everything on property including barbecues, furniture, beds (two new beds added recently) and kitchen appliances and 'tools'. We work very hard to provide a high quality guest experience which we believe is the key to our success and the reason our guests come back year after year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Hideaway Cove Villas are super great! the prices are, well... perhaps TOO low, but my new wife and I were grateful since we were doing a honeymoon on a shoe-string budget. They're close to the ocean only a block away on the south side of the island. (

The south (Poipu) is perfect for wonderful sunny days, and it makes such a perfect spot for traveling the entire island of Kauai. We spent at least three days traveling to the north and east sides for various activities, one in the west, and three in the south. The drives to any location were fairly short, and even if you hit traffic, I mean... it's Kauai, just enjoy the scenery!

Although we stayed in the Beachcomber (totally sweet, two person studio), we were lucky enough to get to see the Seabreeze, which was just gorgeous. The place has its own outdoor hot tub, beautiful materials (shoji screen doors, granite counter-tops, tile floors), great big couches, a flat screen TV you won't need, and a view of the ocean! We are already making plans to go there for our anniversary with our closest married friends next September.

Ask Gale anything, and she'll have the answer. Food, views, swells, etc., she'll point you in the right direction! I'd give it 6 out of 5 starts if I could just because they throw in fresh made juice that awaits your parched palate upon arrival. Great, great, great.

Tips: go see the lithified cliffs on the south shore, drive all the way to the pu'u o kila lookout (of Kalalau Valley) at the end of the Wiamea Canyon road (for one of the best views in the pacific), and take a Napali Coast Boat trip.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, Thanks for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay in our Coral one bedroom. We tried to think of everything we find useful when we're staying in a vacation rental and included it in ours. It's nice to know you're appreciated the little details. We hope to see you back again and I don't wake of in the not too distant future. Aloha from KaUai, Herb and Gale

Very clean and nice property!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was very nice and exceptionally clean! The TV in the living room could have been a little better quality, but fine overall! It was very private, with a lovely patio overlooking a lush lawn area! The owners were very responsive to any of our requests for repairs, etc.

Owner's Response: Hi Sherri, I'll pass along your praise for the cleanliness of our accommodations to TMK Cleaning, which has been doing a super job for us for the past twenty years. In addition to the out cleanings with each stay, they do a quarterly deep clean using an extensive check list for items like cleaning ceiling fans, pulling out all furniture and beds for dusting, washing windows, servicing air conditioners and power washing sidewalks. We always purchase the latest technology for our HDTVs and hope you appreciated the HDTVs in the bedrooms as well as the living room. Aloha from Kauai, Herb and Gale

Comfortable condo a short walk to the beach

Condo was very comfortable with a full kitchen, livingroom, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Ample sheets, bath and beach towels. The condo was very clean and the property amenities were great! An easy walk to the beach and overall great location. I would definitely come back again and recommend to my friends and family.

Poipu Beach is a resort area with shopping, grocery stores and ten restaurants located within a mile of the property. The beach has twice been named the number one beach in the United States and is the only beach on the south shore of Kauai that is life guarded. This is also a great spot to take surfing and stand up paddle boarding lessons (SUP). You can picnic, swim, snorkel and sunbathe at the beach. We provide beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler for you to fully enjoy the beach.

The adjacent Poipu Beach Park offers covered picnic pavilions, barbecues, a play ground for children, beach showers, public bathrooms and lots of open grassy areas to sunbathe or picnic.

Brenneckes Beach is next to Poipu Beach and is widely considered the best boogie boarding beach on Kauai. We also rent boogie boards and snorkel gear and can have them waiting on your lanai when you arrive.

Other Activities: Helicopter adventures, ATVs, bicycle downhill, luaus, Napali sunset dinner cruises, snorkeling trips by boat and from shore, scuba diving from shore and by boat, snuba, rubber raft adventures into ocean caves, ocean kayaking, river kayaking, zip-lining, hiking, golfing, deep sea fishing, rainbow trout fishing, movie tours in an air conditioned bus to the sites of well known movies and guided tours of the island.

Golf: Poipu Bay Resort, former home of the PGA Grand Slam, is less than a 10 minute drive from the property. This is the golf course for the adjacent Grand Hyatt Resort. The course is beautifully designed with many of the holes on the ocean in Poipu. The clubhouse, which is located on the lake at the 18th hole, is a great place for lunch. At dinnertime the restaurant transforms itself into Yum Sa, a terrific Asian themed restaurant run by the Grand Hyatt. Kiahuna, Pua Kea, Waimea and the well known Prince Course in Princeville are not far away. Our concierge desk is happy to book tee times for you.
