Our stay at Debi's house was pure pleasure . We are a family of 10 and we had a week of amazing vacation. Not the least of what made the stay so wonderful was Debi Joy herself. She is extremely easy to communicate with and there in an instant to help you if you have any needs. We were really glad we got to meet her and she's clearly the reason her home is so beautiful and comfortable. The location of this house could not be beat, within walking distance to two very nice beaches as well as other scenic sites. The yard and grounds are beautiful and the outdoor shower practically a necessity after a long day at the beach. In-unit washer and dryer were a bonus, allowing you to pack less. A shed packed with beach toys, floats, mats, snorkel gear, and chairs really made the trips to the beaches that much more fun. The dining room table easily accommodated all 10 of us and even a guest one night. We enjoyed many meals around the table and definitely saved a lot of money by cooking in. The gas grill was excellent. Food, drinks, beaches, pools, and family made this a vacation we'll always remember.

A great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This property is the best vacation property and in the best location we have ever experienced. The facility easily accommodates 10 plus people and has all the amenities you need for a long or short term stay. They spared no expense to provide a comfortable and functional facility for our vacation needs. The amenities on the property were actually better than what the owners listed. The photos were accurate and the owners went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and unforgettable.

The location speaks for itself. It is on the most beautiful island in Hawaii. We were walking distance to beaches, high end resorts, shopping, and excellent restaurants. I have grown a new respect for this state we call Hawaii and especially for this beautiful Island they call "The Garden Island."

I highly recommend this property!!!!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tropical Hideaway! It was perfect for our large family. We especially enjoyed the separation of the kitchen from the living room, giving us parents some peace and quiet while cooking as the kids played games in the living room. We had fresh avocados for guacamole daily and the gardeners delivered fresh bananas to our front door!!! We felt secluded by the lush outdoor greenery, giving us the refreshing and relaxing environment we came to Kauai for.

One great aspect of the home was the wonderfully large coffee table in the living room. We often found ourselves eating every meal on it and enjoying each others company that much more.

The home was immaculate when we walked in. The owner has obviously done some major work on this home (in regards to previous reviews we saw) and the cleaning crew is rightly praised. We will be back to visit our Garden Island Tropical Hideaway for years to come. Thank you for the pleasure, Ridge.

Truly a Tropical Hideaway!

Our stay at Tropical Hideaway was better than we could have ever expected. For the price of a small two person hotel room, we got four A/C bedrooms with VERY comfortable beds. In the middle of summer, this was a huge upgrade. We looked for places that could accommodate our whole party, and not only were the properties scarce, but almost none had A/C and in no way were they this great of a price.

There was a huge open living room with music, a mounted soundbar, big tv, and very comfortable couches. The kitchen was also very open, which provided lots of space to move around and cook. We saved so much money by going to Costco and cooking our own meals. This wouldn't be possible without such a great kitchen. Some reviews say the cabinets are "sticky..." what??? The reason probably being, because they are held shut with an adhesive! Which, to us, made time in the kitchen very efficient.

But, what really made this home great was the tropical paradise it offers the Kauai visitor. We walked in through the main gates and gasped at the beautiful healthy garden, water feature, and fruits of many varieties. We ate avocados, tangerines, and bananas, and picked flowers for the dining table. Oh, and I can't leave out the orchid shower garden and hammock! Showering outside in the morning, washing ourselves off after our beach day, or starting the day with a cup of coffee in the hammock was a consistent joy.

All of this would have made our stay amazing, regardless of the location, but the amazing thing is we had both! We walked on "the green belt path" down to the ocean every day. And what a lovely walk it is.

I don't know what reviews like Rita K.'s are talking about. You will not regret staying in this beautiful home. When we come back to Kauai, we will definitely be staying here again. Thank you so much, Ridge, for making our vacation an unforgettable one! See you soon!

Location was amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Great place - I think the only thing I would suggest is cleaning the cushions on the backyard furniture - really dusty. Also, a couple of other things in the kitchen such as tin foil and baggies.

Other than that it was comfy.
