About Sonya DeAngelis

We live in the California Bay Area. We have 3 school-age children and visit this house every year at least 3 times. We consider it our home away from home and our kids love the island and all its activities. We always discover something new on each visit.

Sonya DeAngelis purchased this house in 2003

Why Sonya DeAngelis chose Kauai

We bought this house after visiting Kauai numerous times. Our first visit to the island was to the north shore to backpack the NaPali coastline. Since then, we decided to buy on the south shore due to its centralized location, resort feel and drier weather. We know you will love the location in Poipu since the house is within walking distance to 3-4 different beaches, restaurants, shops, pool and tennis.

What makes this house unique

Our extended family love the privacy of the inner courtyard, the closeness to the Grand Hyatt and the beaches, and our parents love the single level and openess of the house.

When our kids were younger, the inner courtyard and fenced backyard were a great place for the kids to play.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful vacation on Kauai. I've taken my mother and sister to all four major islands where we've stayed in houses we found on vrbo. We all agreed that yours was the best. The design of the house is great and it is very comfortably and attractively furnished. The weather was perfect too.

The home feels larger than it actually is!

  • 5 of 5

The open floor plan and covered deck makes this home feel very large and very comfortable for all 7 of us. The home also has beach chairs and everything you'd need for a great day on the beach. The location is also a plus, for you're within walking distance for a nice hike on Shipwreck, lunch at Brennekies or fine dining at the Hyatt. We had a wonderful stay.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Kauai. The house was very spacious had a great feel to it. Loved the location and layout of the house. The kitchen was well equipped we enjoyed dining outside every evening. We saw sunset at Popiu Beach every evening and morning walks along greenbelt and the cliffs above Shipwreck Beach.

Hope to be back soon!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 adults who like to cook and found the home perfect for us. We had a fully stocked kitchen, plenty of beach towels and water toys and the location can't be beat for all the various activities the South Shore has to offer. The owners were great to work with and responded promptly to any questions we had. We walked around the area and enjoyed the beautiful flowers, birds and watched sea turtles at Shipwreck Beach and a Hawaiian Monk Seal at Poipu Beach. We also did just about every activity Sonya and Ron recommended and really enjoyed the ATV at Kipu Ranch. I highly recommend this home to anyone considering it. Thank you Sonya and Ron for sharing your home with us! I will certainly recommend you if I know of others headed to your beautiful island.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and 1 toddler enjoyed our stay in this home in January/February 2017! Although we had some issues with the wifi, Ron and Sonya were very accommodating and worked on fixing it right away. The home is in a great location, with a short walk to the green belt and the Hyatt. We loved the space and the home perfectly suited our needs. We would love to come back to stay here again some day!

Supremely disappointing!

  • 2 of 5

We rent a house or condo when we go to Hawaii so we can cook for ourselves. We were only able to one night as the, bbq grill was filthy, rusty, and in flames most of the time because of the grease on it. The oven racks were rusty and the top heating element was just dangling in place. Oven temp was not consistent so what was put in there didn't catch up with what we were trying to bbq. The dishwasher was marginal, so we hand washed most of our dishes, the few we used. Several burned out lights throughout the house and the bulbs that were in the lamps were 13 watt - couldn't even read by them. My husband changed the light in the bathroom but the ballast seemed to be the problem. The gate was off the front, so the courtyard was not private and there was no gate on side yard as well as missing fence boards, so not really a private back yard. When we wanted to use the dryer it was full of what we thought was sand but upon cleaning it out found it to be the rubber backing from the rugs. The beds were comfortable and linen clean. It was a convenient walk to the conference I was attending at the Hyatt and not too far from the beach & Brenneke's for several dinners. I think the home has great potential just a ton of deferred maintenance. I'd like about 1/2 of my money back.

Owner's Response: I am very disappointed that this renter never contacted me once during the entire 11 night stay. This is the first I have heard about the issues they had. Normally my housekeeper is very good at cleaning the house inside and out including the BBQ grill. I spoke with her and this reservation was a back-to-back with another one, so my housekeeper had limited time that day due to the previous guests leaving late. In her haste, my housekeeper must have missed cleaning the BBQ and our apologies for that. Had the guest contacted me, I would have happily made things right. As far as the dishwasher being “marginal”, it is a brand new dishwasher installed in Dec 2016 (just one month prior to this guest’s arrival). If it isn’t cleaning properly, I will have the installer back out to investigate since it is covered under warranty, however the previous guests gave no indication that it wasn’t working properly. Again, had I been notified, I would have happily addressed this issue. Also, the burned out light bulbs and rubber backing in the dryer are a very easy and quick fix had I known. You are correct in that the front gate has been taken down from the courtyard. That is because the hinges were having an issue and the gates wouldn’t close completely. They are too heavy to fix in place, so my contractor removed the gates to work on the hinges. I’m glad you found the beds comfortable and liked the location of the house. Our house is very close to the Grand Hyatt as well as 3 beaches so it is very nice for your extended family to stay at the house while you attend the conference. I hope your conference at the Hyatt went well.
