1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4
Gale owned a glass bottom boat when she first came to Kauai. As the business grew, activity desks were leased to ensure a steady flow of customers for the boat. When Gale had the second happiest day of her business life (she sold the boat), the desks remained and Gale was then in the activity desk business as Kauai Vacation Helpers. She often jokes that one of the 'worst' parts of her job is having to test out all the activities to make sure they're o.k. for our guests. Herb's been in the residential real estate business since he first got his license in Huntington Beach, California. Sixteen years ago, Herb was recruited by a friend to work as Director of Marketing for a resort on Kauai, and has been here every since. Since leaving the resort nine years ago, Herb has been actively involved in Hideaway Cove doing marketing, designing websites, blogging and writing our newsletter 'FYI Kauai'.
Herb purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Herb chose Poipu
We have both travelled extensively and talked about owning vacation rentals that had everything in them that we wished for in the places we've stayed. Most important to us was a very good bed with high quality linens and towels plus quality furnishings. We both enjoy cooking and wanted our kitchens to have granite counters for easy cleaning and ceramic top stoves for the same reason. Jacuzzi or deep soak tubs and walk in showers and granite counters turn what could be a ordinary baths into something extraordinary. cleanliness. When Herb first moved to Kauai he rented what is now our Aloha Two Bedroom, Two Bath and became fast friends with the owners, Dick and Donna Page. And when they decided to sell the building next door, Herb was the first person they asked. Initially the building had long term rental tenents and we converted it into vacation rentals nine years ago.
What makes this Apartment unique
Due to the high cost of electricity, very few of the vacation rentals on Kauai are air conditioned. We decided to add air conditioning to stand out from the crowd. For the same reason, we added an office and large guest laundry room on property, in space which had originally been planned as a studio accommodation. We even have the deep soak tub, four poster bed and name plate to go outside the door to prove it. Having an office allows us to give our guests a very high level of service. We are also very attentive to even the smallest details,personally inspecting our units frequently for cleanliness and wear and tear. We are constantly upgrading everything on property including barbecues, furniture, beds (two new king beds added recently)and kitchen appliances and 'tools'. We work very hard to provide a high quality guest experience which we beleive is the key to our success and the reason our guests come back year after year.

We loved our stay at Coral Villa @ Hideaway Cove. The landscape was amazing and the neighborhood was very quiet! The unit was very clean and well appointed. The welcome basket and fresh POG fruit juice was unexpected and delightful. We requested extra pillows and they were ready to go when we arrived! We also appreciated the beach chairs and ice chest to use at the nearby beaches. Thank you for making our visit to Kauai a memorable one!
Hi John and Lisa, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us here at Hideaway Cove Poipu Beach.

Lacks comfort and privacy
With other guests above and beside our one-bedroom unit, we felt this rental was noisier and far less private than we had expected. The outdoor seating was very uncomfortable, and the unit is smaller than we imagined.
Sorry to hear you were disappointed in our 750 sq. ft. air conditioned one bedroom. We strive to provide first class accommodations and were surprised to hear you found us lacking. Cozy and comfortable is the comment we most often receive in our many positive TripAdvisor reviews. We hope you did enjoy the fresh juice in your fridge and our welcome basket.
Aloha from Kauai,
Hideaway Cove Poipu Beach
Great stay - location, owners and the porch!
Coral Villa was a truly Hawaiian respite: a “homey” (but nice homey!) part of a triplex up a quiet neighborhood street about two blocks from the beach; a 10 minute walk to everything Poipu Beach has to offer. The location offered easy driving to other parts of the island as well.
The unit is a one bedroom, with a comfortable size living/kitchen area, a bedroom with lots of storage (very comfortable queen bed), and a bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The kitchen has a full size fridge and stove. Fans throughout: we didn’t use the air conditioning.
The front porch was the best: a shaded sitting area overlooking the front lawn, palm and plumeria trees. A great place for relaxing, reading, eating while listening to the birds.
Part of good a VRBO experience is the attitude and availability of the owners. Herb was responsive to emails and phone calls and especially generous in addressing a scheduling problem that came up for us.
All in all, an excellent experience!
Hi KC and Michael,
Thanks for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay in our Coral One Bedroom here at Hideaway Cove Poipu Beach. We hope you'll find yourself missing the sound of those birds chirping from your front lanai. So much so that we'll see you back again before too much time passes.
Aloha from Kauai,
Herb and Gale
Lovely place to stay while exploring beautiful Kauai
Close to the one of best beaches on the island! Lovely, secluded condo to enjoy the stars at night & the birds in the morning ~ highly recommend!
Hi Dianna, Thanks for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay in our Coral One Bedroom here at Hideaway Cove Poipu Beach. Being located almost at the end of a private dead end street makes things pretty quiet. Whenever we need to be on property, we try to come in the morning to hear the concert from those birds singing. We hope you're able to join us again in the not too distant future. Aloha, Herb and Gale
Good location and great condo overall.
Thanks for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay at Hideaway Cove. We hope to see you again in the future!
Aloha from Kauai, Herb and Gale
Perfect getaway on Poipu
We stayed at the Royal Palm Villa (the 2 bdrm, 2 bath) and this rental surpassed all of our expectations. Very clean, an owner that was very accommodating, very spacious, a/c that worked well. We will definitely be back.
Thanks for taking the time to write your review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I'm glad we were able to accommodate your last minute request, so you could leave the place you initially reserved that did not have air conditioning. We hope to see you again at some time in the future.
Aloha, Herb and Gale
