Overview

About the property

SUPERIOR LOCATION-BEACH CLOSE BAYVIEW ESTATES-4 BR SNGL LVL HOME-TROPICAL GARDEN

We often started 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 environment, 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(not recommended) 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. Sometimes I would work out in their fabulous gym and often I would stretch in Yoga class. You can too with a day pass!

I added my favorite scents and favorite amenities to my own 'Tropical Hideaway' for you now to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits of this House:

Lava Rock Orchid Shower Garden. Our guests with extended family and children love the single story floor plan, Lava Rock walls, and gated private entry. The waterfall, fish, Hammock, Avocado, Banana, Mandarine, Coconut, gorgeous tropical flowers and lawns; a Tropical Garden environment with both Private, get together and multiple eating spaces both inside and out.

Tiki Torches are available to encourage romance and fun with ambiance. All four bedrooms are air conditioned for your sleeping 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...

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a wonderful home!!! I just got back from spending 12 nights there with family and we had a blast!! The place is aptly named Tropical Hideaway. It's close enough to shops and restaurants to get provisions or go out and play, yet you're also in a quiet, gorgeous, tucked away neighborhood in paradise. Shipwreck's Beach is a short walk away, Kalapaki Joe's "The Westernmost Sports Bar in the U.S." is less than a mile away, and you're in Kauai so everywhere you look, it's stunning and lush. The house itself has all of the modern amenities needed, the furniture is comfortable, the grounds outside are lovely with a kick ass hammock, and we spent many nights using the outdoor grill and hanging out on the linai. The only thing to be wary of are the mosquitoes outside! I got chewed quite a bit before making friends with a wonderful local woman who gave me some anti-mosquito repellent coils that you light like incense and nothing touched me after that. So if you're susceptible to those vampiric critters, take precautions, and wear lots of sunscreen because it's hard not to be in the ocean everyday. Mahalo Debi! Thank you for creating a magically healing home and sharing it with us all. I would come back for another stay in a heartbeat.

Premier Spot!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful! Just a short walk to the beach

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.
