|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
We often start our day with a short stroll to the beach to drink our coffee while my boys, Ridge and Rad Kai, boards under arm, do 'dawn patrol' (a surf before school at Shippy's). The green belt path to all the Poipu beaches provides the safe feeling we love on Kauai, knowing the boys are so close. I had just completed the spa room of my dreams with the lava rock shower garden adorned with orchids! Kevin landscaped it, listening to my dreams and surpassing them all, and I fell in love with his heart and creative expression, then married him. True story. You get to enjoy this gorgeous property, sewn with love and care... We hope you will cherish your time here and can't wait to share it with you and yours!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: I raised my children for 10 years on the ocean front and thought I could never move. To my delight all three teens were off the charts excited to move to Bay View Estates. They could walk to all their favorite beaches in just a few minutes! Being at the famous 'green belt' opened their lives to the tennis courts, pool, spa, the Grand Hyatt amenities, Shipwreck cliff jumping and hiking. I especially love the resort lifestyle! Before I built my own lava shower and water features, I would walk two minutes to the Anara Spa where I would start my day in the steam, sauna, Jacuzzi and pool. I added my favorite scents and favorite amenities to my own 'Tropical Hideaway' for you now to enjoy. A spa atmosphere...
The Unique Benefits of this House: Secluded get away areas. Lava Rock Orchid Shower Garden. Lava Rock walls and gated private entry. Hammock between coconut and avocado trees. Banana, Mandarine, Coconut, gorgeous tropical flowers and extensive lawns are kept manicured for your enjoyment. Tiki Torches and festive ferry lights are available to encourage romance and fun with ambiance. A/C is included in all four rooms for your comfort. Two King beds, Two Queens, Bunk beds, and Twin airbeds assure there is a special place for all to land after a fun filled day in paradise...

"Spacious and secluded yet walking distance to the best Poipu beaches."
"Thanks for All the effort to make our stay the best ever trip to the islands. We will gladly book this house again."
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.
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!!!!
So clean and full of extras like the beach/snorkeling supplies. Perfect for our big family xo
We stayed the first week of November and we felt totally misled by the glowing reviews. Our experience mirrors the review by Jon B. The first red flag is the 11 pictures out 24 that show the house, with several repeats, and only one bathroom is shown.
First the positives, a nice open living space and dining room, and new air conditioning in the bedrooms. It would have been unbearable without AC, since 2 out of the 4 bedroom have no cross ventilation without the doors left open and the ceiling fans would be minimal comfort.
That's it for the positives.
The kitchen and bathrooms are old, outdated and cruddy. The kitchen is totally enclosed, away from the living/dining room and there are broken doors and drawers falling off the cabinets. They were so gummy dirty it was hard to enjoy any time in the kitchen. The "new" dishwasher has mold/mildew inside and several electrical outlets were broken. The sliding screen door from the kitchen was broken.
The level of maintenance is minimal, after all, this house must be a real money maker and why bother to provide a better experience if some renters seem ok with it?! Upon our arrival the floors were dirty (we had a 10 month old crawler), windows, screens and window sills were filthy, outside glass door in the "spa" bathroom was shattered, no twist rods for any of the old, hard to pull up blinds, and lights burned out. The owner was responsive and had the floors and windows cleaned, screen door replaced, lights replaced and brought twist rods that we installed. Our first day and half was spent dealing with all this.
Outside the landscaping is also just ok, not lush like in the pictures, and one large palm frond came crashing down a few feet from our 4 yr old. Outside furniture still has old, mildewed cushions. You do not have use of the garage, its full of the landlords stuff, and we had to ask that they move a, stored, covered car left in the enclosed driveway so we could maneuver our cars.
Finally several old, lumpy beds are unbelievably uncomfortable. They need to be replaced asap.
The landlord was nice and responded to the basic cleaning and repairs but stated many times that "good help" was difficult to find in Kauai. The real issue is they appear to not want to put the resources into the house to upgrade it. I toured a house around the corner that I almost rented but for the lack of a second king bed and for a comparable price I could have had a lovely, clean and updated house.
House does not look like photos, and needs a lot of repair. Grease hanging from exhaust fan in kitchen, no hot water for showers or dishwasher which had black mold inside of it not every room with air conditioning, especially bedroom nearest the kitchen. Not happy very leery to use home away again. Drawers in kitchen hanging all over, and two glass door shattered in rear garden area. No hot water, come on!!
My husband and I took our son, his wife, our daughter and her friend for a week in Kauai to celebrate our retirement. This house turned out to be perfect for our family. Everyone had a bedroom and bathroom, the living area was large and easily accommodated us if we were inside watching television or playing cards. The kitchen was large and contained everything we needed to prepare our own meals. The outside patio was our favorite place to meet each evening and have a drink before dinner. The bedrooms are now air-conditioned and that made the stay comfortable - without air conditioned bedrooms, we would have been very uncomfortable because the weather was humid and warm. The walk to the Hyatt and the beach is pleasant and easy. Overall we found the accommodations to be very comfortable and the location to be perfect for everything we wanted to do. The few times we had questions, the owner responded immediately. I recommend this place for families as the rooms are large enough that everyone has privacy and space to spread out.
