About Shelley Griffin

I work for the owners of the home and have managed this property since 2008. I have established great friendships with many local islanders and I have had the opportunity to experience some of the outdoor adventures that Kauai has to offer.

Why Shelley Griffin chose Poipu

The location near Baby Beach and the neighborhood make this home a perfect choice for your vacation. The home comes stocked with everything needed to feel like you are at home including BBQ for outdoor cookouts, kitchenware, beach towels, toys, mats, chairs, coolers, fins and even bicycles for our guests to use. The home is on a large property that gives you quiet privacy and a large backyard suitable for volleyball or badminton, which you can also find stored in the garage.

What makes this house unique

We provide a pack-n-play and high chair for small children as well as plenty of beach toys. The downstairs living area provides a private space for the grandparents while still being part of the rest of the house upstairs. This is a great house for a large family vacation. Plenty of space for everyone to have room to breath. You won't want to leave once you visit this home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed your beautiful home on Kaua'i. The house was everything we could have wished for. We would surely rent from you again. It was the perfect place to spend our 40th anniversary, something we will cherish for a long time.

Perfect rental for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, pictures depict it very well. This house is a 90 second walk to Baby Beach, which is a terrific spot for young kids and a great place to watch the sunset. It is also a short walk up to the shops and restaurants and a short drive to a few other great beaches. The location of the house seemed to be in a quieter region of the island, which was nice. The garage full of sand toys, boogie boards and snorkel gear was a great bonus! Would definitely recommend this house to others, it suited our group of 7 adults and 2 toddlers very well.

Owner's Response: This is a perfect place for families with children due to the proximity to Baby Beach. The owner takes pride in his home and visits regularly to make sure everything is in order. It really is the best neighborhood on the island.

More than I expected

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are from Oahu and have never been on Kauai. Figuring that born and raised on the island and never been. Why not go to Kauai?! I've never rented a home before. This really is my first time doing this. It was difficult finding a place for our 2 night stay. Everyone else required 3 at least. I was searching for weeks while I was working and learning how this all works. Extremely lucky to found this. There was some payment issues. But nothing to do Shelly. It was the site and I was at panic mode worried I'll lose the place. I was able to pay over the phone and she was EXTREMELY nice about it and very helpful. That was a plus to hear how friendly she is over the phone.

The House! I honestly didn't expect it to be so accommodating! I had brought my own towels not knowing there's a closet with 50 towels for our use! The house was hot when we arrived. there was no ac. However, it is Hawaii and it gets cool at night and we literally was 3 minutes of walking from the beach. There was many homes without ac there and they make do. There was a lot of fans to use for the house. We brought our own shampoos and soap. They also had for us. The house was supplied! Pots, pans, plates, forks, all that. They even had kept back the donated paper plates, red cups, forks and stuff from previous renters. HOW AWESOME WAS THAT! To top it off. There was 2 bikes in the garage to ride around the area. A VERY BIG NEW NICE SET OF WASHER AND DRYER! It was a life saver because we barely brought clothes. There was a charcoal grill and a propane grill. A pressure washer to wash the car in case you need to return your rental cleaned if you went through red dirt. Open the garage closets and you'll find Snorkeling gear. I KNOW RIGHT?!!! Can it get any better?! YES! A huge yard to have outdoor activities and there was game boards in the closets. Netflix and a very upgraded kitchen to cook comfortably in with the view to watch the kids and watch tv. Very open concept. LOVE IT!. My family was like " WOW!!! GREAT JOB JEN!!!" I know...and I will take full credit for booking such a great place. If I ever do come back to Kauai. I will book here again. Costco was 20 minutes away if you wanna go bulk. But Longs/CVS was minutes away. A little nice town minutes away as well to walk the night and have dinner. I just really enjoyed our stay so much. I know the cleaning fee is already included. But I just felt the need to tip the Cleaning lady for a job well done on the house.

Amazing Home - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights with a group of 10 (6 adults plus 4 children under 4 yrs).

The bedrooms are spacious with 2 having walk-out access to the wraparound lanai. The basement pull-out couch + 4th bedroom and kitchen worked great as a "family" suite for 4 of us with the older children. The kitchen and living room are open with high ceilings which make a great gathering space. The lanai is huge and the area off the kitchen is a great place to sit for evening drinks, breakfast, or to take in the sunset. The backyard is a great play lawn for the kids.

The baby beach is nice to have in walking distance for quick access to the shore. There are some larger beaches with more to offer that are easy drives as well. The Poipu area is very nice and we were able to walk to dinner once or twice.

Two items of note:

1) The birds (parakeets?) become very active at times in the evenings in the palm trees surrounding the lanai. It was more amusing than annoying, but they are loud!

2) There is no air conditioning and a lot of windows so periods of the mid-afternoon (when we typically stopped by the house for naps for the little ones) the living room/kitchen can get VERY warm even with the fans running. We just took it in stride since it's Hawaii weather, but it is worth noting.

Overall a great experience and the favorite of the 3 houses we stayed in (on separate islands) during our vacation.

Owner's Response: Those darn parakeets are taking over the island. They flew in with a storm a few years ago and they live in the tops of the palm trees. We have tried everything to get rid of them from beating on pots and pans to scare them off to cutting the tops of the trees down in the backyard where they were really becoming a nuisance, and they just moved over to the next tree. This is happening everywhere on the island. As far as air-conditioning, we are looking into getting an air-conditioning unit installed in the home in the upstairs area. The warm temperatures of the late afternoon sun are usually not a problem because most visitors are at the beach during the day or site seeing and the house cools down significantly in the evenings. However, we want to make our home as comfortable for our guests as possible and we are visiting the home in September to look into air-conditioning options.

Great vacation home for families!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week and my family loved it! The house is charming and spacious (inside and outside) and literally steps away from baby beach which was perfect for our two toddlers (and grandparents). Beach supplies (chairs, umbrellas, toys) were plentiful and access to the very versatile Poipu beach was a 4-minute drive. The house's location was centered enough where trips to Waimea Canyon and Hanalei Bay weren't too far. Management (Shelley) was great in quickly responding to an issue with overflow trash bags (outside) from previous occupants. Would absolutely stay at Hale Beach home again!

Owner's Response: We have had a problem with Kauai's Trash Service not picking up the trash if it isn't located exactly at a spot on the street where they don't have to get out of their trash vehicle to pick up.

Located in Sunny Poipu within steps of Baby Beach just off Lawai Road. We are a short drive from the town of Koloa where you will find quaint shops and a local grocery store. The best snorkeling beaches on the island are within walking distance along with the newly built Kukuiula Shopping Center. Just up the road and a wonderful morning walk away is the Spouting Horn where you can enjoy the early sunrise and see whales and sea turtles swimming by. Our home is located in one of the nicest neighborhoods on the island.

Other Activities: Snuba rental gear available at the end of the street
