My wife and I vacationed at this house with our two adult children and their spouses for one week in March and loved it. We had a wonderful week, and this house fit our needs perfectly. The photos and descriptions on the web site are accurate, so I won't spend too much time describing the place. This is our second trip to Poipu, and we were very happy with the choice. There was some rain, but the weather was generally much better in Poipu than on the north side of the island. My wife and I stayed in the master bedroom, which has an attached bathroom with a large double headed shower. One of our daughters stayed with her husband in the other bedroom on the main (second) floor used the the main bathroom on that floor. Our other daughter and her husband stayed in the downstairs bedroom, which has its own bathroom and small family room. The layout of the house was just right for the three couples vacationing together. There was enough common area: kitchen, dining area, living room, and large patio (lanai) on the second floor, but there was also enough privacy because of the three bedrooms and three baths. The location was great. The house is half a block from the beach road, and from that corner, it is about one block down the road to Breneke's Beach, which is adjacent to Poipu Beach. These were very short walks, and each day we usually visited both beaches. Breneke's was good for boogie boarding, and Poipu Beach and Park was good for snorkeling and views. It was nice not having to drive to get to such places. The bedrooms have room air conditioners, which we did not even turn on in March. All rooms have ceiling fans, which we used some of the time. We were usually very comfortable just using the light breeze blowing through the house. The solar hot water heater produced plenty of hot water, and some of the electricity is from solar panels on the roof. The lanai was a comfortable place to sit and watch the ocean. Twice we saw whales from the balcony. There is a large gas grill on the patio also. The owners are very friendly and hospitable and were happy to give advice about local beaches. They were very prompt in responding to emails and phone calls, both during the process of renting and while we were there. We loved this place and would be very happy to stay there again.
This cozy home is nestled away in a secluded spot with a great view of the ocean and is only a short walk to a wonderful snorkeling beach. We watched whales from the lanai and spent hours on the beach. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and just relax. We had a wonderful stay. We'll be back.
When I saw the pictures and description of this house, I thought it could meet our needs well. My wife and I brought our 14 year-old son and her mother. Having 3 bedrooms was a necessity. The location is great, with a beautiful ocean view from the lanai, and an easy walk to the beach. The house is clean and there is laundry, which allows you to pack lighter. There were beach chairs, water shoes, snorkels, masks and fins of varying sizes, and plenty of beach towels. The trade winds blow through the house, allowing you to keep the AC off most days. I was comfortable sleeping all but two nights without AC. Chris was available, easy to talk to, very generous and friendly. He cut some fresh apple bananas for us, which were delicious. He also responded immediately when we had a clogged toilet (someone had flushed a bar of soap!). The bedrooms are good size and our teenager had his own space downstairs. We loved the 2-person master shower. The outside shower was very handy for washing off that sticky sand! There were plenty of dishes, pots and pans, we bought only a few things such as Tupperware to store fresh fruit. It is so nice to eat on the lanai with that view! With cable TV and free wireless internet, there is no excuse for boredom. We brought our own up to date guidebooks and saw the entire island. With this house you are also in easy walking distance to the Brenneke's restaurant and deli, with a small store to get shave ice and sandwiches. Everyone in our party had a great trip and we would highly recommend this property for your Kauai vacation.
