So relaxing. Kids from 2-13 and everyone had a great time. The location made it easy to hit the beach. We will definitely be back!
Great property with a perfect location.
We found this house to be absolutely perfect for my husband and I, along with our grown children and their spouses. There was a lot of space for three couples and everyone had their own private bedroom and bathroom, which was ideal. The lennai (sp??) was a great gathering space with a perfect view of the ocean. It was so nice to be right across the street from the water and we could get to the ocean in a heart beat. Our landlord, Steve, was very accommodating and whenever we needed anything, it was taken care of. The one minor thing was how difficult the blinds in both upstair bedroom windows were to open and close. This was the first time I have been to Hawaii and I couldn't have dreamed of a better location or house to be in. Thanks so much for making our stay so delightful!!
Only issue was the pocket door to the bathroom was off the track and we couldn't close it. But everything else was wonderful!
This house was perfect for the 10 of us. We range in ages from 72 to 5 years old and every single one of us enjoyed the house. The house was yards away from the beach, local restaurant and surf shop. There was a small play ground for the little ones across the street and the most perfect cove for our smaller swimmers. There were plenty of beach towels for us to use and the outdoor hot shower was a great feature! We will definitely be looking for this house again if come back to Kauai!
Property was as described. Easy access to both Brenekke's and Poipu Beaches, with views of the ocean from the porch. Kitchen was reasonably well stocked. Could have used more kitchen towels. We texted with the owner about a small issue (our group needed an additional fan) and he was responsive, and reimbursed us for the purchase. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation in paradise!
We were a group of eight, ages 74 to 16. The home was exactly what we desired. There was room to spread out and the patio was a favorite spot for the whole family.
Walking to beach was a daily event. Beach chair and umbrellas help to make the beach a favorite spot. Seals and turtles can be seen on the beach and if you watch close you can see whales breaching offshore.
Steve was wonderful to work with and must carry his phone around with him as he was available when ever we had a question.
Wonderful beach house on a beautiful island.
This was the perfect home for our family vacation. The home is gorgeous and located steps from the beach. There was a rain-related issue and the owner responded quickly to the issue. I would highly recommend this property.
Spacious house located across the street from Poipu Beach made enjoying beach time and sunsets each evening very easy. Large deck with ocean view was great for sitting outside to watch and hear the ocean as we played games, relaxed and chatted.
Everything about this place was wonderful. Plenty of room for our party of seven. The location couldn't have been more perfect. Right across from the beach. Beautiful sunsets and so much fun watching the turtles come onto the beach every evening. The house was well stocked with everything you will need. The host was just a text away if we needed anything (which we didn't). There were plenty of beach accessories which made our beach days very enjoyable. I have stayed at a lot vrbo's, and this rental is definitely at the top of my list. Do not hesitate to book this property!
The location of this property is unbeatable. It is right across the street from Poipu Breach Park, and in between Brennecke Beach and Poipu Beach. Each morning, the sea turtles and seals would come up onto the beach at Poipu. Brennecke is an awesome bodysurfing/ bodyboard beach, while Poipu has a nice cove for snorkeling, and a great surf break right to the West of that. ALL within walking distance. Also, don't forget to grab a Puka Dog and fresh squeezed lemonade at their spot right below Brennecke Beach Broiler. Yum! Steve is a great host, and the instructions are easy to follow. The house could use some updating, but we didn't really care too much because we were out at the beach most of the days. Mahalo!

Hard to beat a house on Poipu beach next to a surf shop.
Owner/manager very attentive and friendly. Lots of room. Everything works well in house. It’s a bit older of a house but very comfortable.
The house was perfect for our needs. Right across the street from the beach/park and just a short walk to restaurants, water sports rentals, and everything we needed. Convenient access to all of the activities (sailing, helicopter, etc) that we wanted to do. Well laid out for a family or multi-generational group.
Beautiful view of the ocean from the upper deck. Walk to a great restaurant and deli. The beach across the street is great for children and swimming and snorkeling or just laying out.
Home is beautiful and could not be better situated. Right across the street from Poi Pu beach where you can see the turtles come up to rest at night. Boogie board beach is across the street also. Perfect beaches and sunsets. Home is also well appointed. We could not have asked for more.
Great home in a super great location. This home is roomy for everyone and we loved how many hang out options there are. We enjoyed the big deck that is partially covered so it makes sitting outside really nice anytime of day or night. The home is very well appointed with all the things you may need to make. your stay comfortable. We really liked that the bathrooms are all spacious and not cramped.
We also loved being able to just walk across the street and see the turtles and monk seals and walk to Kalapacki Joe's for best happy hour and football games.
Your host Steve is super fantastic!!
We hope to return in the very near future. Love this place!!
This property had an amazing view and was in an excellent location. We loved being able to walk to the beach (Brennecke’s and Poipu), as well as dinner and drinks at Brennecke’s. House was perfect for what we needed. We travelled with 6 adults and 2 kids- plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed. Highly recommend!
Our family trip to Kauai was fabulous and our stay at this home was perfect. We were literally across the street from the beach. This made everything easier with the little ones. The house had ample room for everyone to gather (or nap) and Steve (the host), is a pleasure to work with. He is responsive and informative and just an all around nice guy! As a special note, I rent from VRBO often and one of my pet peeves is the lack of towels in many homes. This home not only had more then enough towels, they were also great quality. The house also had all the beach equipment needed, including snorkeling gear. Often it is the little things - along with the big things, that make the difference. I highly recommend this property! We are already talking about our next trip!!!
Great location! Literally steps to Brennekes park! Walk to several beaches and restaurants! Beach chairs, umbrellas and some snorkel gear available! So much room at this property! We had 8 and it was great! Nice kitchen and BBQ! Steve was very helpful!
Although I’d been to Hawaii this was my first time on Kauai and I’m glad we experienced it in this home.
While there were some small things in need of repair this is a beautiful home in an amazing location. The beach is just across the street and you have great views from the wrap around deck.
Plenty of room for our group of 6 adults.
The homeowner is great! I had the pleasure of meeting him and when I needed something he was on it right away.
Would stay here again
The house was great everyone had there own space, the stairs were hard on my arthritis didn’t go up or down a lot but that was just me very close to the beach.
This location was perfect for our quick beach wedding. We walked across the street, got married on the little bluff between beaches, then had an incredible vacation!
I had my coffee on the beach with see the turtles nearly every morning and saw a monk seal playing in the water. It was nice to be able to walk down to Brennecke’s and Puka dog! Plus the shaved ice…yum!
Steve was easy to work with, both before and during our vacation, there were a few small hiccups but he was very responsive and resolved everything quickly. We had plenty of space for our party of 10 at this house, plus a little extra for our little reception. The decks are awesome and a great place to people watch. Not to mention the View of the ocean and park!
There were 4 kids and 6 adults in our party. The kids ages were 8, 10, 10 and 13 years old. The 3 adult couples all had private rooms and the kids spread out in down stairs.
We’d stay here again…. Maybe for an anniversary trip!
We arrived in poipu to find a great home located within a stones throw of Brennekes and the world famous Poku Dogs, Not one complaint from our arrival to our exit we enjoyed it and recommend everyone to visit Maui so we can keep this secret to ourselves.
We had such a great time at the property. The location is so close to the beach you can wake up to and see the crashing waves from the master bedroom. Great deck, tons of space. Near all the beach attractions, food, drinks, surf board rentals. We were all very happy with our rental.
9 beds and one sofa.
Trurtles, snorkeling, surfing all jusr across the street!
This property was exactly what we were looking for! It had enough space for 6 adults and a 1 year old, everyone had their own bathroom and large bedroom. The location doesn't get any better, we were across the street from the beautiful Poipu beaches and a couple steps from Brennecke's. There were a few minor upgrades to the house that we pointed out to Steve, but everything was taken care of and he was very responsive and easy to work with! We will definitely be returning!

This was a perfect house for our party of 13. We had 4 adults and 9 children. There was plenty of space for our whole crew. The location was perfect as there was a playground, great boogie boarding beach, and a calm beach for the littles within a 3 minute walk. Steve was great to work with and responded quickly to any requests. It was also around the corner from Puka Dog which is a must when in Kauai.
We had a fabulous stay. The location is perfect. Walking distance to both a boogie boarding beach, snorkeling area, turtle resting place, a surf shop, and a fun place to eat. The house offers a view of the ocean and an open central floor plan. It offers different areas for a family to spread out. The owner was very communicative and accommodating for our weird timing issues.
We will be back!
Awesome location if you like the south shore. Large house with tons of room.
Wonderful location. Steps from the beach. East walk to bars/restaurants. Our group was 6 adults, the house was the perfect size for us. Highly recommend this property.
This property was exactly as described. The house was clean, well maintained, and very spacious. Plenty of room for our family of adults and would be a great choice if you had children running around.
It was wonderful to be so near the ocean-the crashing waves can be heard from anywhere inside the house. A roomy deck with a large table, many chairs and a barbecue made for many enjoyable dinners and scenic morning coffees.
Steve was very helpful and responsive to questions. We hope to return someday!
The house was perfect for our family of 10. Had everything we needed, boogie boards, beach towels, sand toys. The bed were very comfortable. Great location, loved seeing the turtles every morning, and a couple seals came on shore too!!! Steve was so easy to work with and very accommodating. Thanks for letting us stay, we will be back.
Enjoyed our stay.
It’s great to be that close to the beach.
There was only one beach chair. Had great kid sand toys. Could have used more that one house key. Needs a little TLC . Steve was great.
The best part of this house is the location. Directly across from the beach. We enjoyed the lanai a lot. It’s a great size for a large group. Steve is very responsive.
Only negative is that some of the furniture and bedding could use an upgrade, But overall, it’s a nice place.
Walk to multiple beaches to boogie board, body surf, see turtles, swim with turtles, and snorkel. Absolutely a premium location.
Great location close to everything. Could use more beach chairs, as there is only one! Also could use a few more coffee mugs. Overall as described and was very comfortable
I feel I can write a very accurate review of Steve’s house as I broke my leg the second day in Hawaii so I spent pretty much a solid week in the house. As my vacation pretty much ended with my accident, I really appreciated the open space and beautiful breezy lanai overlooking the beach. I spent every day lounging on the comfy lounge chair and enjoying the sights and sounds of the neighborhood and beach waves. Plenty of space for my 4 and 2 year olds to play and run around. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms and kids slept on pullout bed. That was a perfect setup, even though it’s right off main living area, we spent most of our gatherings on the lanai anyway. The kitchen was very well equipped with serving ware and appliances. Plenty of bathrooms for everyone. A laundry basket full of masks and snorkels to fit everyone young and old. Plenty of beach toys and boogie boards, chairs, mats, anything you want for the beach! Really excellent property and Steve was available for any and all questions. Highly recommend this property for family gatherings! Thanks Steve!
This property could not be located in a better place. Close to beaches, restaurants and a dive shop where you can rent chairs and umbrellas. Furniture is comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped although the stove did not have all burners working. I had to deduct a star due to the air conditioning. The main room is air conditioned but not the bedrooms nor the entire ground floor. The bedrooms were so hot sleep was difficult. They did not cool off until around 2am and then the roosters crowed at 4am. Impossible to nap in afternoon. So sleep was in short supply. Perhaps in months other than August it is more comfortable.
This house is located between one of the best boogie board beaches and one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island. These two beaches are separated by a beautiful grass park where you can sit and watch the waves come in. The upstairs patio is perfect for grillin and chillin!!! The gas grill worked out perfect for dinners. We could not have asked for a better house or a better location. Steve was a perfect host and was very responsive when we had questions. I would highly recommend this house for anyone travelling to Kauai!
You can’t beat being literally across from the best beaches. We loved hearing the waves crashing all night.The house is roomy for a group. Decor is a bit tired but it was clean.The beach toys are just leftovers from previous guests and mostly broken so bring your own or rent . There is a rental place close by. Hosts were good to communicate with and we appreciated that.
What is not to love about this home? This space was perfect for our family of four plus two friends…the layout provides enough rooms for everyone to feel like they have their own space, each bedroom has a window toward the ocean (which is seriously steps away) and there are upstairs and downstairs decks.
SO GLAD we chose this house over one of the hotels. We hope to return some day! Thank you, Steve. We were so blessed by your beautiful home!
We really enjoyed the location, the space in the house, the outdoor warm shower, the deck, the nice bathrooms, the beds, the closet space, and the beach supplies. It was perfect!
This is an amazing location. The house is perfectly suited for large groups. Especially our group with 5 teenage cousins that wanted to sleep together. They slept in the provided air mattresses and twin beds downstairs. Thank you Steve for sharing your wonderful home.
House is great - very spacious and the location is amazing. Only criticism i have is there is only air conditioning is in the living room/kitchen area. Pretty hot in the bedrooms. We enjoyed our stay there. Debbie S
Steve's house was just as described. There were 7 adults in our group and there was plenty of room for us to hang out together or get away for some quiet time. We especially enjoyed meals on the lanai which were easy to prepare in the large, well-stocked kitchen. The beds were comfy as were the rest of the furnishings. Steve was easy to communicate with and available to answer any questions I had. If we return to the Poipu area, we hope to stay here again.
The house was HUGE. Loved everything about it. Beautiful inside, kitchen equipped with every appliance needed. We fell asleep to the sound of the ocean. Walk across the street and you're there. When we were there, my kids wanted to know when we could come back, and we hadn't even left yet.
We had a great family vacation celebrating my father's birthday. There was 10 in our party including grandparents, spouses and grandchildren and we all fit comfortably in the beach house. The kitchen is large which made cooking for a large group a breeze. We ate out one night at the Shops at Kukui'ula (a 3 min drive) but there are many other restaurants within a 5 min drive.
The best feature of the house is its location. It's directly across the street from Poipu Beach Park, which has great snorkeling and is perfect for the little ones as it is relatively calm. One tip, bring some bread (in a zip lock bag) and your waterproof camera when you go snorkeling. You can thank me later.
The house also has a nice outdoor shower so it's easy to rinse off the kids after a day at the beach.
Steve, the owner, was accommodating and very easy to work with.
My current and extended family had an amazing stay here over Christmas. You can see the beach from the Lanai and walk across the street at be at both the beach and PoiPu park. The house was perfect for our family of six. Spacious with lots of common area for us to hang out together. When we couldn't figure out how to use the remote for the TV, the owners were right there on the phone walking us through it (of course, it was simple!). It was so relaxing and beautiful! Would love to have the opportunity to go back again!!!
