Poipu House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath Home spacious home

Poipu Vista Villa is a custom designed home in Poipu Kai Resort. Ocean and mountain views are just the beginning for this Hawaiian paradise. The incredible design of this home literally brings the outdoors in, creating a place to relax in peace and privacy with beautiful panoramic views ranging from the mountains to the sea from the living area and wrap around lanai.

Upon your arrival you will know that you are 'Somewhere Special'. A 40 foot wall of glass paneled mahogany doors lead out into your very own private tropical garden with a lava rock sunken spa and pond with a walkway that winds you through a rainbow of colored tropical flowers and palms. The lushly landscaped grounds include orchids, tropical plants, banana and palm trees which greet you swaying in the gentle breezes.

When you finally make your way back indoors you will find it tastefully appointed in an Asian/Bali design reflecting style and grace with natural bamboo and quartzite flooring and a open Hawaiian style, spacious floor plan. A custom gourmet kitchen with an island and granite counter tops over red oak cabinets and breakfast bar seating for four persons. The dining area has seating for up to 10 persons at a formal but relaxed setting.

Poipu Villa Vista is set up on two levels which offers privacy to families traveling together and is ideal for family reunions. The first level is an Ohana, which has a separate entrance through French doors. This apartment includes two of the bedrooms and a bathroom along with a full second kitchen with granite counter tops and all new appliances including a large side by side refrigerator freezer with water and ice in the door, microwave and full oven and stove.

About Nick and Wendy

We live in the beautiful Town Los Gatos in Northern California. Nick is originally from England and Wendy from Southern California, but we have both lived in Silicon Valley for over 20 years. We have been married for 18 years and have three fantastic children. We are excited to take over the management of this longtime successful Poipu vacation rental !

Why Nick and Wendy chose Kauai

We enjoy traveling to the Hawaiian Islands and have enjoyed many family vacations on Hawaii, Maui and Kauai. But our favorite spot is Poipu in Kauai. On our last trip Nick came across Poipu Villa Vista on his morning run, on a whim he picked up a flyer. Low and behold we are now the proud owners!

Poipu Villa Vista has been a successful rental for several years, and under the previous owner had a strong history of happy customers. We are excited for the opportunity to continue providing happy memories for many more families!

What makes this house unique

The panoramic views from this Poipu Kai Crestview home are reason enough to stay. However with it's 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths it can easily house two families, so we can travel with our friends and family and so can you. The size and location close to beaches make for endless possibilities. Maybe you will see a Monk Seal on Poipu Beach at sundown, or boogie board every morning at Shipwreck beach, get a great massage at the Hyatt, cruise the NaPali coast in a catamaran and visit Waimea Canyon just to name a few. Sunny Poipu is a great spot to hang out or launch your explorations. Enjoy Kauaui!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family vacation was surely enhanced by staying at such a beautiful home with plenty of room for everyone. The location of this home was ideally to home base from; whether you choose a short walk to the beach, pool or a car trip to see the many wonders the island has to offer. We certainly will be booking another trip, including lodging at your home. Thanks again for sharing your home with our family.

The home was beautiful and the yard very impressive. The location was great, we walked to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our large extended family. The home is beautifully decorated but still kid friendly. Plenty of room for sleeping, eating and relaxing. We really enjoyed being able to walk to the beach. The openness of the home was so relaxing. We found most everything we needed for cooking which we did most every meal. It was nice to have the paper products and cleaning supplies available. We did a lot of wash and appreciated the washer and dryer, although the dryer did make quite a bit of noise. We enjoyed the special welcome gifts. We all felt right at home. We would most definitely recommend this to anyone. Thank you Wendy and Nick.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was an ideal vacation spot for an extended family of 10 sharing this beautiful home. The downstairs was perfect for the young family with two children under 3. It was amazingly equipped with a stroller, high chair, crib and walker. When we were missing the beach umbrella, Wendy had one delivered pronto! The back yard was a perfect haven for lounging after playing in the surf and sand. With 3 beaches and 2 restaurants within easy walking distance, it could not be more convenient for a large group. The only cons to mention is that the dryer is indeed noisy, the kitchen stove could use updating and a few utensils could be replaced. However, our group is 100% in agreement that we would love to return to this idyllic home, hopefully next year. Thanks to Wendy for her responsiveness to all inquiries. It was most appreciated.

Great Location, good for large groups

  • 5 of 5

The home was just a pictured and described. Loved watching sunrises from the lanai. Great cool tradewind breezes through the upstairs and with the AC downstairs it was very comfortable even in summer. The downstairs unit was perfect for our adult children (note it only connects through outside stairs). The large table was perfect for meals and board/card games. The wifi worked fine after resetting the router once upon arrival. Lots of beach towels and nice to have the beach chairs, boogie board and large cooler pack. Minor issues of one jet on the hottub shooting up like a fountain and the key to the pool area didn't work. Also minor issue of only two cars fitting in flat part of driveway and no parking on the street. We just parked the third car on the very steep driveway. Did have a young stray kitten wander into the kitchen several evenings (we left the doors open for air flow.) We would stay again!

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days with 9 people. The house was incredible. There was plenty of space for us to all spread out. Wendy was responsive to any questions leading up to the trip, as well as during our stay. It truly felt like we were at home. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling with a larger group!

  • 4 of 5

Wendy was great to work with. Very timely to respond to questions. The property was very clean and well maintained. Our daughter was getting married in Poipu and the large home was perfect to have friends drop by,host dinner for 12 . Loved morning coffee on the lanai and tropical feel of the place. The master bedroom ,second guest room and downstairs bedrooms are very comfortable.

Beautiful, serene setting, Perfect for a relaxing trip to Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

This splendid home was ideal for our recent vacation! We brought our family with us and wanted all three of our grown "children," their spouses and their children to have the space needed to relax and not feel like they were on top of each other... and there was plenty of room/ space for all. The eating areas outside and inside were perfect. We loved sitting on the lawn in the back after a day at the beach! Everyone wants to go back... Only if we can stay here!! There are beautiful beaches very close by- which we all enjoyed. One of my son-in-laws is a surfer and he managed to find the time to surf! We also utilized the pool a couple of times. I especially Loved walking on the beaches! I would highly recommend this sensational home!!! Aloha! Peggy
