Drive up to the north shore and visit Hanalei, stop by the Kilauea lighthouse on the way. Take a Zipline tour through the treetops. Take an ATV tour through the red mud of the backcountry. Paddle a canoe up the Waileua river. Wake up early and watch a island sunrise. Attend a Luau. Spend hours at the beach doing nothing but napping and swimming. Go snorkeling and feed the fish. Enjoy a romantic evening out at one of our four star restaurants. Rent a paddle board and test your balance. Eat poi and coconut shrimp and star fruit and papayas and breadfruit.

This is a stunning property! Our stay was amazing and this accommodation was fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect for our family - my family of 4, my sister's family of 4 and my parents. The house is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is stocked better than my own at home! We had everything we could have dreamed of at our disposal in terms of games, books, movies, beach equipment etc. I especially appreciated how the hosts had a pack and play for our 20 month old daughter and an inflatable bed set up for our 4 year old son. The bedrooms were so spacious and each family had their own bathroom which was also perfect. The location was great for visiting different beaches and our trip out to Waimea Canyon. The hosts were fabulous and we would definitely return to this property in a heartbeat!

clean, comfortable, accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. I had requested a 3 pm check in if possible and Juliana made it happen (yeah! since the biggest downpour of the week started while we were killing time to get in!) We are two families with 5 teens. Everything was set up for the three teen boys in one room and the two girls in the other (of the Jack and Jill). There was plenty of room upstairs for together time as well as space for the teens to retreat for schoolwork or tv/computer time of their choosing. We did spend a lot of time out of the house but everything we needed was there when we were home. Both beaches were easy walks and our college teen was able to make the pool work for training. Almost no one was ever in it so she could do what she needed to. Do check the supplies under the sink and in the garage before stocking up - you may not need to pick up as much as you think. Be prepared to go up and down the stairs a lot. Do read the binder! It was very helpful. The air flow was great - it was so comfortable hanging out in the living room after dinner. One suggestion would be to get a shade umbrella for the porch tables - it was too hot in the sun in the morning to sit outside without some shade. I realize that may present some challenges due to wind but, just a suggestion. Overall, an excellent place to have our annual get together.

Perfect home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our entire family. The location could not have been more convenient to various beaches and gardens. The athletic club was close enough to get

our varied workouts in to start our day. All the amenities of home at a wonderful destination.

The management was so accommodating and very responsive to our needs. Will always recommend this home. This house helped greatly in creating one of our best family vacations yet!!

Lovely home to fit all of your needs!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful, positive experience staying in this home!

The house is as beautiful and cozy as the photos show. Everything was clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well-stocked with appliances and everything you could need for cooking. Our favorite place was the living room....where we hung out each night as a family. The location is excellent - 5 minutes walk to Shipwreck Beach and the Grand Hyatt, 2 min drive to Poipu Beach, and close to restaurants and shops. Jim and Juliana were always quick to respond to all of our questions and requests. Many other thoughtful details to also make your visit pleasant - flashlights, hamper for clothes, baskets everywhere, tour books, games, toys for little ones, etc. Note that twin beds are smaller than standard so may be perfect for children. Water pressure in master bedroom is not strong so if this is important, downstairs private bathroom is best. Some beds softer/firmer than others. A/C in bedrooms was delightful on the hot days, and the evening breeze felt nice. Beach gear was so helpful to have on hand to borrow - plenty of towels, even water shoes and snorkel gear! We will always remember our visit! Thank you.

Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure stay in this marvelous home! Everything was exactly as described. Super clean! With our family of 6 (4 older teens) we really wanted a home we could spread out in and something that would give everyone their own space. This beautiful home suited our needs and desires to a 'T'. With 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 full baths our family was in heaven! I, in particular, was in love with the kitchen. Cooking for a family of 6 can be challenging in a 'strangers' kitchen. But here, I had everything I needed at my fingertips. And meals out on the lanai were my 'happy place'! The only downside was that the ice maker wasn't working. But there were plenty of ice trays. We were especially grateful for the beach equipment. All the towels, mats, coolers, umbrella, boogie boards, etc. Although we loved our adventures on this beautiful island, coming 'home' every evening was such a pleasure! We really enjoyed gathering together in the huge living room to celebrate the end of another fabulous day and relax as a family. This home was perfect for us! I could easily see us coming back with friends and/or extended family. There's just so much space! Working with Juliana and Jim was a breeze. This was truly a home away from home and I would enthusiastically recommend this property!!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you again for the visit! We are so glad the kitchen and all the home's details made your visit so enjoyable. Sorry to hear about the ice maker and we wish we could have remedied the problem during your stay. Ice makers can freeze up and get clogged. We look forward to your return visit! Mahalo, Jim & Juliana

Great House in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Very spacious for two families, total of 8. Big bonus was all of the beach gear, everything we needed, chairs, cooler, towels, boogie boards, etc. Great to be able to just load everything up in car and head to many beautiful beaches in the area, Poipu Beach was a 3 minute drive. Thank you for the great stay, we loved this vacation home and it made our first time in beautiful Kaua'i so enjoyable.
