We were thrilled to find this amazing home (and we mean home!) in Poipu Estates for our big family getaway this past May. We stayed 13 days.
Settled in a quiet neighborhood and amongst friendly locals, we felt relaxed straight away.
There were 9 adults and 4 children aged 5-11. Having the guest house as well as loads of inflatable mattress options, we all fit wonderfully.
The home is equipped with beach towels , EVERYTHING for the beach (and we are active hikers and beach goers), plenty of linens (and 2 sets of washer / dryers) and so much more.
The lanai with the hot tub and all of the seating became a favorite spot to relax morning and evening. A great open patch of grass across the street was made for playing catch, tag, and all kinds of running 😂
You are equipped to utilize the club which is AMAZING! What a perfect spot for a gym workout (which we used daily) pickle ball, a great bite to eat, (live music on weekends) and a phenomenal pool and hot tub as well. This is a major perk! Great for unwind days when we are beached out!
The accessibility to beaches, amazing coffee, shopping, and so much local fare is within walking distance or a very short drive.
Kathryn (owner) is very kind and quick to respond to any needs or questions.
The price and value is spot on and helped make this an amazing memorable trip
The house had everything we needed. We had family gatherings here every night this home made us feel like we lived here.
We found the property to be perfect for our multi family gathering. The home was well stocked. We loved the access to the pool and workout area!
Great space for our group of 10 adults plus an infant - we could be altogether in the living areas, or have time to ourselves. Lovely, quiet neighborhood too!
Great set-up and location. We were two families of four (four adults, four kids total). The two houses allowed us to each have some private space, and then to easily congregate in the main house (great room) for meals and games. And the location was ideal ... walking distance to the beach, to Kiahuna golf course, and an easy drive to Koloa town, Waimea Canyon (our favorite hike on the island), Shipwreck Beach and so many more activities. The access to the Poipu Beach Club was icing on the cake -- the kids loved battling at pickelball, shooting a few hoops, etc. while adults logged fitness time. Overall, a wonderful spot and experience.
We had a lovely stay in this beautiful home, located in an amazing neighborhood! The property looks just like the pictures online, was furnished with everything we needed, and had plenty of room for our whole family to hang out together. I would definitely recommend this house and this owner when visiting Kauai.
we loved every minute here! The owner has the house stocked with the necessities and amenities. We could not have been more pleased with our trip!
We had a large group of 6 adults and 6 kids and this property was perfect for this large group. Description of property is accurate and location is great, the house and guest house well appointed, as well as tons of beach gear even for a group this size. The access to the beach club is very valuable - whether for gym access, kids using the pool or the Cabana restaurant. Would book again!
-lots of room for our group of 14. Nice to have four bathrooms.
-quiet neighborhood which we felt very safe in.
-close to Poipu beach and a few other beautiful beaches but you do need a car to get around.
-ample supply of beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and scuba gear.
-very nice lanai (covered deck) which we used all the time as we got a lot of rain on our trip but we were still able to sit outside which was great especially since there were virtually no bugs!
-nice large BBQ but when we got there it had not been cleaned and had a lot of grease in it so the first time we tried BBQing we got a lot of flames. Was great after we cleaned it.
-beds were ok for comfort but the bedding was very good quality.
-we had three vehicles and there was ample parking room.
-kitchen was very well stocked with pans and pots and plates. The cutlery could be replaced and the dishwasher was quite old and worked just ok. We ended up hand washing a lot of dishes.
-the air conditioning is only in the bedrooms and we didn’t use them as some of us tried them the first night and found that they made the rooms quite musty. The air conditioning units just need to be cleaned we felt. But it was more than comfortable if we just opened our windows at night. The main area where we cooked would get very warm at night so we had to open all the windows and then shut them before bed. The blinds were easy to manage but one blind was not working when we arrived. Advise… just make sure that if you see something not working to let the owner know right away. We waited too long to tell her about it. And since there were three different types of blinds it is obvious that they have had lots of problems with them. We were extra careful with the blinds so besides the one that was jammed we had no issues. But an air conditioner in the main area would save you from having to open and shut the windows so much. But if you are not turning on the oven at all then it likely wouldn’t get as hot in there.
-the washing machine in main house had the pump quit (it was also an older unit) but a maintenance guy came right away although he was unable to fix it. But the good news is that there is a second washer and dryer in the guest house.
-the hot tub is very nice but only fits three adults. Unfortunately, we were there over the holiday weekend so the pool guy who usually services it on Monday didn’t show up. But we got ahold of the owner and he did come and service it on the Thurs.
Amazing customer service and wonderful location. Host and housekeeper went out of their way to try to help us get groceries prior to arrival, and had great communication. Very nice house and perfect location!
Thank you, Katherine, for sharing your beautiful home with us. We’re a multi=generation Canadian family gathering for a Christmas holiday and the property was well-suited for our group of 9. The main house and guest house were well furnished, kitchen was very well equipped and beds were very comfortable. It was great to have access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club; which allowed for diverse activities close by. Having access to beach chairs and snorkelling equipment was a nice touch and we made good use of those! We really enjoyed our stay in Kauai... Mahalo!
This was our family’s third time visiting Hawaii but our first timing staying in a VRBO and we could not have asked for anything better. Not only was the home just as promised, as far as rooms and amenities, it was decorated with so many intriguing items appropriate to the culture that you felt its magic the minute you entered.
It was the perfect place to start our days and the perfect place to end our nights with family meals and game time in the main house.
And on a clear night if you sit quietly at the end of the driveway you’ll swear that you see a billion stars!! And if you’re as lucky as we were maybe a shooting star or two or three!
Great place for our large family Thanksgiving week!
This gorgeous home provided a beautiful place to relax and gather as a family of 13. The decor makes you feel like you are part of a Hawaiian museum collection. Preparing meals together in the chef’s kitchen, having coffee on the covered porch while the grandkids enjoyed the yard and playing in the portico. As well as enjoying the birds in the beautiful landscaping and seeing the moon and stars at night. We loved our stay here with the ample beds and guest house and especially the close proximity to some of the very best beaches on the island. It was a dream come true and we hope to stay here again in the future.
We had a lovely time at this beautiful property that was accurately described and pictured on VRBO. Kathryn was responsive and accommodating, making us feel like we were the only ones emailing her question after question. Home is decorated Island Style with good taste. We appreciated the many extras in the kitchen for stay in meals and in the garage for beach time activities. The kids loved the pools at the Beach Club. We came during a bit of a hot spell and if on one evening the trade winds didn’t blow much, it was wonderful to have the option of AC in the bedrooms at night. We highly recommend this lovely property in a beautiful, conveniently located area.
We were married on shipwreck Beach and stayed here as the base camp for wedding. A mix of over 30 family and friends joined us with 12 at the property. It was perfect! Lots of room to hang out and visit. Ample parking. Open living space was roomy and workable. We even used the grills and catered 3 meals for the tribe. The online walkthrough doesn't express how open and roomy the main house really is. Thanks Katherine so much for sharing your home with us. We have made memories that will last a lifetime.
This property was ideal for the beach vacation. The accommodations were excellent! We took advantage of the beach and the pool at the beach club. Everything you need is close enough to walk or ride a bike...beach, shopping, and restaurants.
Nice for family stay, everything we needed and more.
The property was beautiful, and there were so mamy extra things that were provided like towels, beach equipment, even toiletries. Housekeeping was also very friendly at check out.
The neighborhood and the home were lovely. The home’s great room was the perfect setting for our family gatherings. The bedrooms and guest house gave us privacy when needed. We enjoyed the large front porch with wonderful breezes. Would definitely stay there again! Missing Kauai already.
We loved this home! It was so comfortable and convenient.
We loved our stay! Great location to everything in Poipu. Owner was super responsive to any questions we had and very attentive. We plan on returning to this wonderful property!
We loved this property! The home was full of all the amenities we could have hoped for in a location close to everything. We walked in many nights for dinner and ice cream, our grandkids favorite plus a bit of shopping. Kathy was a delight to work with. Very responsive with any questions. We had everything we needed for days at the beach, laying by the community pool or just relaxing on the patio. It was a wonderful house to host our family of 9. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us and making our trip so special.
This home was beautiful and well maintained. Kathryn is very available for questions or needs and we had everything we needed for an awesome stay in Kauai. The neighborhood is great and perfect location. I have chemical sensitivities to cleaners and don’t travel much but the cleaners used were so non toxic that I was pleasantly surprised. I would totally rebook this house.
House is very spacious, well furnished, beautiful area, close to the beach ! House and guest house with everything you need! Kathryn always responded fast to any questions. We had an amazing time !
Well equipped house and guest house in very nice neighborhood. Very comfortable sleeping arrangements for our party of nine. Can’t wait to come back again.

Spacious house with plenty of room for my family with 5 kids. My parents and brother stayed in the guest house. It was nice to have our own space but still be close. Owner was really great about communicating and shared information about activities and events at the athletic club which we used several times. The front porch was perfect for relaxing with the spa and barbecue grill. It was nice to plan some meals at the house so we didn't have to go out to a restaurant for every meal. So close to beaches, shops and restaurants. There was a lot of beach gear there and available for us to use. Overall it was a perfect Kauai vacation.
We loved everything about our stay. The home is beautifully designed and maintained, the neighborhood is quiet and inviting, and there were more beach toys and accessories than we could ever use—even with our group of 9! We will be back for sure. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
Amazing property! Great location! It has everything you will ever need in the kitchen and for the beach! Super clean and beautiful! There were 8 of us and it fit us all very comfortable! Close to shops, eating places, Poipu athletic club and beaches! We will definitely stay here again!!

The owner was extremely prompt with communication. The property was a good fit for our group of 12 and seemed like a good match with the price point.
When I first saw this property I knew it was a good pick but, trust me when I say the pictures don’t do this property justice! I was in town for my wedding and when I first reached out to Kathryn she immediately responded and informed me they had a close love one host their wedding party on the property. I knew then, we were in good hands. Besides the property being beautiful and In a great area what stood out the most was Kathryn’s responsiveness to any question I had (which was a lot). As I’m sitting here on a balcony in Honolulu my heart really wants to be back in Kauai relaxing at this beautiful home.
Excellent stay. House was beautiful and had plenty of room for 13 adults and one baby. Wonderful amenities, loved all the beach gear that was available. Felt totally at home.
The home and ohana were perfect for our group of 9 adults, with 5 celebrating their 60th birthdays. Close to everything and super convenient to the most important thing, the BEACH! Great having access to the private club, and walking distance to Starbucks.. cannot wait to return! Thank you!~
We loved our stay! The house is in the perfect location (best side of the island), and was exactly what our group needed. Everything from check-in to check-out was smooth. There was plenty of room for our big group and we loved having the hot tub. Definitely recommend this property, it was the best place to relax when you aren’t out adventuring the island!
This was a beautiful home with a guest house. We had 7 adults and 2 toddlers and had plenty of room. Home was well furnished and had lots of beach gear available for our use.
The property fit our family perfectly consisting of four couples and kids. Both houses are fully equipped with everything needed for a vacation stay on the island including beach chairs and towels. We immediately felt at home as soon as we walked though the doors. The property looks very nice online, but even more beautiful in-person. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back again. Thank you for such a joyous and relaxing stay!
Our 4 generations (ages 2-89) loved this place. Very clean and family friendly. Having access to the fitness center and pool with a slide was a big hit with the children. The beach supplies in the garage for all ages was a bonus. The host was great to work with as we planned during the pandemic, and thought through cautions and potential adventures. We highly recommend this place and this owner. Central location too.
We had four couples. The bedrooms are nicely spaced apart. Two have en-suite bathrooms and 2 had nearby hallway bathrooms so no one had to share! A huge plus for couples traveling together. The beach is a short 1 minute drive and the beach club membership is a huge plus with beautiful pool. Lots of restaurants nearby too.
This property was wonderful! It was close to many activities. The guest house was perfect for the teens that were along on the trip-it gave them their own space. Property manager was easy to get ahold of and was quick with responses.
The property was wonderful for a family vacation in Kauai. It was right in the middle of Poipu and the house had plenty of room to spread out. It was a great experience. Thank you.
We had a great visit. The house is well equipped with everything you need and easily accommodated our larger group. They have everything you need from baking to beach chairs to enjoy your time on Kauai. Close to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The kids also really enjoyed the pool. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Great house with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Would love to make it an annual trip. Thank you.
Beautiful property, beautiful home. All you could possibly need. The athletic club was amazing as well. Couldn’t be happier.
The property was delightful. It was wonderful, the decorations were wonderful. We smaller home was where we stayed and it was wonderful. We would like to go back and all of us would like for a wonderful time. We had the best vacation ever!!!!!
This is a delightful home with a guest house that is quiet, soothing, and peaceful. The house is festooned with Hawaiian artifacts that have history and prestige. The layout is nice, open, and airy. A perfect retreat that is set away from the traffic, but walkable you shops and dining. An absolutely fantastic home to share with your friends and family! Love it!
We had a great stay at these houses. Really enjoyed the membership to the athletic club.
Beautiful , comfortable home . Conveniently located with more than we expected.
Loved staying here . Owner communicate
Let me start by saying this property was just stunning!! We were in Kauai for our daughters wedding and rented the houses to host the bridesmaids and some family.
Our group fit perfectly and it was a beautiful place to get ready for the wedding and take
pictures with the bridesmaids. The guest house was perfect for family to stay and the main house was more than able to accommodate the bridesmaids and my daughter.
Kathryn was a very attentive host and the property has all the amenities needed to have an enjoyable, comfortable stay with a large group.
I would rent this property again and again!!!!
Can Not beat Kauai
We really enjoyed the property. It was spacious, well-equipped and accommodated our party of 10 well. Our college-aged students stayed in the guest house, while the rest of us enjoyed the main home. We thought the neighborhood was beautiful and the location was great. We enjoyed several dinners out on the deck. Only complaint was the bar-b-que wasn't heating properly. But the owner is looking into to it. We took advantage of the Poipu Athletic club (gym, volleyball, and poolside lounging). We would definitely come back!
This home was a beautiful place to stay for our time on Kauai. We came here with our kids and grandkids to celebrate our wedding. The house and guest house worked perfectly for the families and couples. Spent many evenings on the porch enjoying the Kauai weather.
We had a wonderful time. The house is a great location in a wonderful neighborhood. It was walking distance to the beach, the athletic club, good shopping and restaurants. The Ohana worked out great for our extended family. The porch was an awesome spot for sunsets and happy hour!!
The property in Poipu was amazing. Plenty of room for our group of 12, great location and the use of the pool/athletic club really put it over the top. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
