Guest Book for Kauai Vacation Home Poipu Beach
I hesitate writing this because I don't want to expose this great find! But the owners asked us to do a write up....so, please, keep this one a secret. First off: the owners make it easy to plan. You email them, they get back to you promptly. We had detailed questions about the property and surrounding activities, and they were quick. They even recommended beaches and even the type of rental car (yes, get an SUV for Polihale Beach). At one point they replied in seconds. Amazing. The house itself is really great. The write up is accurate. The best part of the house is the sizeable porch. Big dining table, 2 chaise, huge gas grill, & a hanging bed that you can nap or read on. But you'll probably like the kitchen (open plan) that is chalk full of gadgets and gear, including a blender, tons of pots and pans, flatware, 2 cuisnarts I think?...AND the pantry is pretty stocked, so don't do your grocery shopping until you've surveyed the inventory that's already there. The bedrooms are really nice. All high quality. The master is big and the two other bedrooms are spacious too. One has the washer/dryer in its bathroom, so you need to time your laundry so that it doesn't wake that person. Ok so the really cool thing: they had TONS of beach gear for kids and adults: snorkel masks, goggles, fins, reef shoes of different sizes, sand castle stuff, umbrellas, boogie boards and even a surf board. This was really convenient. No hassle going to the rental store and going through that whole routine. And, yes, they have beach towels aplenty. The house is a quick walk to the Hyatt Resort and even Shipwreck Beach. Though honestly, we had all that gear so we always drove to the beach (3 mins to the parking area of Shipwreck). Poipu Beach/Brennek's is nearby too (5 min drive) but not close enough to walk with all the gear. This is not a deterrent though. This is sort of a reality of a day at the beach. This is their family home too - so be cool about how you treat it. Especially with your kids. We definitely will go back and would love to see it in the same condition! They really have a special place here so be gentle! Have everyone shower off the sand (there's a nifty shower right by the garage). The spick and span neighborhood is very quiet, & although it doesn't have a view of the water, you have a great view of the greenbelt right out the back door. Bottom line: high quality house, sunny area of the island, quiet, and well-equipped.
This house is the perfect vacation spot for any family or couple looking for a place on the south shore of Kauai. My husband and I had a lovely time at this location, as it is so close to the beach. Every morning we took a walk to Brennakes beach and then indulged on snow cones in the sandwich shop.:) I know it is unhealthy but hey, its Kauai! :) Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful Kauai home. We cant wait to come back again soon! Love your friends in Arkansas, Ashely and Rooney
What an incredible place this was. We stayed during May 09' and completely enjoyed ourselves. The house had everything we needed and then some. Poipu is a wonderful area on a wonderful island. We really enjoyed the proximity to the beach along the path. Thanks for this great place!

What an amazing, amazing house! The interior is just beautiful with original Hawaiian artwork throughout. We don't think the landscape could be any prettier, so beautifully maintained! Everything is top-notch! My kids found the lanai a perfect spot to relax (on the hanging bed!). The kitchen is set up with every available cookware and we ate in every night, dining on the lanai. The location of the house is fantastic - a short walk to beaches and easy commute to all areas of the island. We loved that there were beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, etc available for our use - such a nice touch! Our vacation to Kauai was wonderful with treasured memories and this beautiful home made all the difference! Thanks for sharing your piece of Hawaiian paradise!

We just loved your vacation home in Kauai! Not only was the property just beautiful but it was so convenient to everything we traveled to. Your meticulous care and attention to detail was also just lovely and the home was so well taken care of and the things we needed were available for things like cooking, etc. It is such a beautiful property and so welcoming as well when you want to just relax from your day of activities. Thank you so much! Ray and Kellie D. , Tacoma, WA
This home is great for a vacationing family. Comfortable beds and other furnishings. The air conditioning was wonderful. Boogie boards and other beach supplies were available at the house for us to use at the beaches. The house has a fabulous location. The homeowners and house manager were very warm and helpful.

Perfect location on the best Island in Hawaii. Home is immaculate and extremely well appoointed. Very roomy and walking distance to two beaches. This is the best value on the island for a perfect vacation. Delta now has flights from ATL to LAX to Kauai. Easy to get to.
What a spectacular home to spend your vacation in! This is a beautiful home close to cyrstal blue beaches, great sightseeing and the two of our favorite restaurants, Roys and Dukes. This home is so comfortable with its open air atmosphere and perfect lanai for breakfast , lunch and dinner. We hope to return to this peaceful place again next year and every year after.
This is the most amazing and perfect home!! The location is absolutley the best and is very close to two of the best beaches on the entire island. The home is immaculant. The owner stocks the refrigerator with wonderful drinks so that if you arrive late, you don't have to worry about anything. The decor is wonderful and it looks like a model home!! The lanai is absolutely stunning. It is large and we ate every meal out on it and there is also a hanging double bed for lounging, sleeping, or wonderful naps. This house could not be more perfect and the owner is attentive to all details. There is a gourmet kitchen with every item you could possibly use and all of the beds are very comofortable with designer sheets and bedding!!! This is the house for you!!! Perfect in every way!!!!
PERFECTION!!! Everything was perfect about this house!! The location, condition, furnishings, amenities ROCKED!!! Hopefully, we will be back in Kauai next year and will stay at this wonderful home again!! Thank you DeeAnn & David for sharing your lovely home with us!!!
Wow......wow.......WOW! What an incredibly beautiful home. I concur with previous tenants, the photo's don't capture the grandure of this property. The surrounding grounds are immacuate. Just minutes from everything, shopping, resturants, beaches, trails, golf, etc., yet far enough out that the never end sound of silence and waves crashing on the beach will lul you to the place of tranquility you desire. If you're looking looking for a slice of heaven with the warmth of home......this is the rental property for you. This is the ONLY place I will stay when I visit Kauai and am gladly promoting this property to my friends, colleagues and family. I can't wait to return.
I have been taking my family to Kauai at least once a year for the past 10 years. We stayed in several different condos for the first 6 years. Ever since we discovered this jewel of a house it is our first choice for any stay in Kauai. It is walking distance from two beaches. It is wonderfully furnished and provisioned. I think it is the best housing value on the island. We are planning to visit again this summer. You can't go wrong renting here!

We stayed here with another couple as we were island hoping. The website pictures do not give this place justice. So beautiful and peaceful. My favorite part of the home is the master suite opens out to the patio where there is an outdoor bed that swings...perfect for afternoon naps. We also grilled out ever night and the large kitchen was perfect for us all cooking together. We spent the rest of our trip at the Fairmont Resort on the Big Island...and we all agreed, we'd rather be back at the house in kauai than at the 4-star resort... We'll definately come back.

This was the best vacation we have every had and a dream come true!!! The home was absolutely wonderful. There was nothing more we could have wanted; the amenities, the views, and the location were pristine. We were not looking forward to leaving and we hope to return again!
It's an awesome house. I don't know why anyone would stay in a hotel when you can rent this beautiful home, that's just a short walk to the beach. Great amenities and beautifully decorated.
deeann and david are great hosts and the house was in mint condition; we shall return!; scott in texas
