About Kevin and Cathy Stange
We live in Alaska and have been vacationing in Hawaii for 30 years. We realized early on that Kauai was the ideal place for us to come and enjoy the sun and ocean… and Poipu quickly became our family's favorite spot. After owning a condo here for many years we finally were able to find a piece of property close to the beach to build our dream family getaway-retirement home.
Kevin and Cathy Stange purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Kevin and Cathy Stange chose Poipu
This location is steps away from Poipu Beach .where our kids and grand children can have a great time together.
What makes this Cottage unique
We were fortunate to find a builder that could build in details that give the feel of an old Hawaiian Plantation Cottage> our lot is on a quiet dead end street and set back form the road. The property overlooks a Sacred Hawaiian Village and is very secluded feeling but still with views of the sunset.

Thoughtfully designed and well-built cottage
Poipu Beach has long been a favorite place of ours to visit. This 2 bedroom cottage is on the street where we have frequently stayed - so close to Poipu State Park and Brennecke's Broiler! Lovely Island decor, comfortable beds, good quality kitchen appliances and housewares, a wonderful main floor lanai, and a very sweet screened sleeping porch off the bedroom upstairs. The TV system was complicated, so the very kind and helpful staff contact came over to help us. Great stay! Thank you, talented decorator owners and helpful managers!
luxury, amenities and walk to beach
a GREAT find in Poipu. Everything you want to live large on Kauai. Great location, half a block to the beach, and a short drive to just about anywhere on the island where you would want to go. Highly recommended..totally worth the $$.
Beautiful, Private and Relaxing! 10/10
We stayed at the property February 2019 and pulling up we already knew it was going to be great. The house is so private and lovely. We enjoyed meals outdoors everyday massages on the lanai out back. The beach was literally 3 houses away and so nice to walk down to. The location and proximity to everything on the island was ideal.The rooms were so comfy and cozy that we ended up being homebodies because we felt so relaxed here. And the binder left by the owners was filled with helpful hints and recommendations for the island. Their tips for the boat tour were especially appreciated and we used them all! We already decided that if Kevin and Cathy will have us we will definitely be back. Thank you for having in your home, this stay was just what we needed as a break!
Wow, what a wonderful home, with every thoughtful detail worked out for a perfect vacation experienc
My son taught us how to play Catan which was in the game cabinet! There was Saran wrap and baggies an extra sponge and soft blankets for lounging around. All these little things which all added up and made us feel right at home. The home is so beautifully appointed what a pleasure to be there. We also loved the ambient noise device at night so much were buying on for our own house. Read the entire house booklet as he has great advice about where to go and what to do. So thoughtfully written!! We can’t wait to come back. Thank you so much for making our vacation perfect in such a lovely spot!! The last day the local monk seals decided to swim with the tourist and the life guards had to get everyone out of the water! A very magical moment for us not the life guards! A very large turtle was hanging out on the beach and the humpback whales leaping in the distance! Not to mention the spinner dolphins right out front. Recommend Poipu Bay for golfers five minutes away also the Puekea course behind the Costco. Great location for beach swimming too. Love this place can’t wait to come back!
Home away from Home!
We have stayed at Kevin and Cathy’s home for 5 years in a row. Their home is amazing and has consistently been the perfect place to relax! The home has everything you need for your stay including a wagon to easily haul everything to the beach - along with the chairs, umbrellas, toys, coolers and towels. We love the lanai’s both upstairs and down! We watched the New Years Eve fireworks at Poipu Beach from the upstairs Lanai - perfect seats!! We cannot imagine staying any place else!
Amazing Beach Retreat!
Back in Minnesota from our Kauai vacation for just a few days and I can't wait to go back! We enjoyed spending a very relaxing and wonderful vacation just a block from Poipu Beach. It was amazing to be able to stay in such a beautiful home with its privacy and comfort. It was so fun to pretend for a week that we lived there! We didn't worry too much about the chickens...it was kind of fun to start to recognize them by their funny noises they would make every day...
It was a bonus having access to a wagon to carry the included beach toys, umbrellas, chairs etc to the beach. We got asked a couple of times where we rented the wagon!
A big thank you to Kevin and Cathy for opening up their beautiful and thoughtfully planned vacation home to us!
