We had read reviews regarding this property and thought they were too good to be true, but our week here was off the charts. The top three features in my opinion:  the outdoor area is almost impossible to describe (the pictures on the website don't do it justice),  the location is superb, short walk to the beach and the Grand Hyatt, and  Dan and Lynette are readily available to solve any minor issues that may arise. The ocean view is minimal, but we probably spent way more time on the property than we would have imagined because the on-site scenery is hard to leave. This was truly a week that we will never forget.
We called this our Legacy Trip. Entire family of 10 covering 3 generations. We relaxed within 30 minutes and kept that vibe the entire stay. Beyond beautiful, a piece of paradise. So much fun and memories created. Each night at dinner we would share what our favorite thing of the day was and on the last day our all time favorite. Being together on this gorgeous property, talking, laughing and feeling like we were on our own private resort was everyone’s all time favorite - toddler, teens and adults. Thank you Tony for your welcome and quick response to any questions we had. A big Maholo
This house is amazing!! It is beautiful, with incredible landscaping, pool, hottub, and lots of room for my large family. The host was more than responsive, making me feel more like a family member than a guest. Staying in this house was, in itself, a vacation.
The house was perfect. We had a 3 year old with adults ranging in age from 41 to 77. For our family it was great. Our son is a chef so we spent nights in cooking with the kitchen perfectly outfitted for cooking/barbequeing. the pool and jacuzzi were clean and functional and the yard area was a showplace! The walk to the beach was a must every morning with the little one. Hikes along the beach trail short drives to other beaches, restaurants etc. The house is great, the owner's are great - absolutely perfect.
We are 3 couples, friends for 20 years over 60. This home is spectacular! Clean, perfect location and ample beds, areas to gather and supplies like towels and kitchen stuff. But the most wonderful part of this whole experience was the owner and his godson Tony. So kind, generous and welcoming. Always checking on us offering assistance to help to make our stay better. Hope to be back again. They are fantastic, the house and property are beautiful! Recommend highly!
Dan Booye is an outstanding host. He personally greeted us, showed us the property and was accessible and responsive. The property itself left nothing to be desired. Everything was clean
We took a 4 family multi-generational trip to Kauai with 8 adults and 5 children the youngest being 9 months. The house was more than perfect giving every family their own space. The pool, spa and garden felt like you were staying at a tropical lagoon. The house was well stocked with essentials. We loved it! Dan is quite the gardener; make sure you check out the banana tree. Thank you Dan and Lynette for sharing your beautiful home with us.
This is our second stay at this glorious property. You needn't read further. Just book it before your dates are booked, which will happen quickly given its desirability. You'll love it. It is incomparable.
Dan is an extraordinary host. The home and property are beyond gorgeous. Our family includes children 1-12 years and the convenience of pool and beach access was incredible.
Dan was very helpful and resourceful with any questions we had about restaurants or how things worked. He’s done a fabulous job maintaining the property and truly was a nice paradise. We had a great time.

We booked our stay one year ahead of going. We had no idea of what the house would be like except looking at the photos online. Of course I looked multiple times, trying to get a idea of how this would work out with 12 plus one infant.
We arrived and Dan greeted us with a giant smile! Right away I knew we had booked the perfect spot. Usually pictures can deceive by people using fish eye lenses to make the spaces look bigger! This wasn't the case here. Every part of this house was perfect.
Having such a large group...this includes adult siblings, we weren't sure about how people would be able to "have their space". We spread out everywhere. The pool is big and inviting. We lounged around watching the grandkids swim while others could watch from the above deck looking down. As grandparents, we stayed in the lower bedroom. This allowed the littlest one and the parents to have the ability to wake up early and come visit us. They stayed in the pool house where it was easy to contain late night crying and nap time.
One of the best surprises was walking to the beach and having that giant expanse of green space to play frisbee, watch sunsets and basically run off energy.
Poipu is also such a wonderful location to run to Living Foods for a healthy dinner, grab a puka dog at Brenneckes, Lamberts for ice cream and safe swimming at Poipu beach.
Thank you Dan for everything!
This house was beautiful and provided our family spaces to gather inside in the spacious living and dining rooms and outside by the pool and hot tub. I would definitely stay here again if I have the opportunity. Beds were comfortable and we had a good experience.
Dan is a great host. On top of everything. We all enjoyed our time away.
What an incredible time! Our family had a wide age span from toddler to grandparents. The home met all of our needs and then some! It is very well appointed with everything you could ask for. Very spacious and clean. And then there is the pool and yard!! Wow!! Absolutely beautifully landscaped! Your very own tropical garden!
Dan was wonderful to work with! Extremely kind and easy going. We loved our stay and are hoping to return someday! Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to experience such a great home!
Very positive experience, loved the location and Dan was fantastic.
It was great. Very easy.
When you step onto the property, you instantly feel that you’ve walked onto a private paradise. Friendly and helpful owners, luxurious accommodations, plenty of space for everyone, clean and gorgeous property.
This was a family vacation to celebrate a 60th birthday. There was plenty of space for private time and together time. Fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, beautiful yard/pool area. Conveniently located in sunny Poipu! 5 star all the way. Mahalo
We had such a lovely time. The house is better than pictured! Close to wonderful beaches for swimming, snorkeling, body surfing and castle building. Great location for hikes and exploring the south end of the island. The house was well appointed with everything we needed to cook, relax and play at the beach or pool. We will definitely be coming back.
Perfect location and amazing outdoor space. Walking to Poipu beach (.8 mi) and the Hyatt (next door) was so easy. We enjoyed the upstairs deck for coffee in the mornings and cocktails in the evening. The beds were comfy. Kitchen was well stocked with MANY essentials - check it out before shopping (especially for seasonings/oils). A little different/odd since 2 bedrooms you have to go outside and downstairs and all the living space/kitchen is upstairs (used to be a B&B) but it was great for our party of 4 couples. The pool area was amazing! Seriously AMAZING. Also we had a couple of hiccups that Dan handled swiftly and thoroughly. All in all SUPER communication with Dan!! We had a private chef come one night and a masseuse come one day. Great space for both those things. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again!
This property is absolutely beautiful. It was perfect for our family with children. Walking distance to the beach and a quick drive to Poipu Beach. Dan/Dave took very good care of us. You will lack for nothing at this house. We highly recommend it and we will be returning.
We had a wonderful week with our family! Dan and Lynette are awesome hosts, and the home and separate bungalow is perfect for multi-families vacationing together. — The backyard paradise is stunning!! Wish we could have stayed longer!!
Dan and Lynette's home is beautiful, plenty of room for a large family. We especially enjoyed the large deck off the living room/kithchen area. We enjoyed looking at the ocean and sky and stars and clouds every evening. We hope to go back one day. Thank you for the excellent time and your attention to detail.
This property is even better than in the photos! We had four adult couples and each had their own private bedroom and bath. Three bedrooms are masters, including the lovely bungalow by the pool. The POOL! The salt water pool is absolute heaven and sits in a tropical oasis. The property is pristine and stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay. We are already booking for next year! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family.
This property is amazing, the view is fantastic, the huge windows seem to let the outside come in and the pool/ jacuzzi area is so private you’ll never want to leave - like me.
This VRBO was simply OUTSTANDING and I and my party had a WONDERFUL time! The location, accommodations, pool, grill, fully stocked kitchen are all Outstanding! I could go on and on, but I will keep this short! All met and exceeded our expectations! Working with the owner, Dan was such a pleasure! We had a great experience and hope to return someday to this exquisite home on this most Beautiful Island! Thank you Dan and Lynette for providing us with such a wonderful retirement celebration vacation!!
We were a group of 10. My wife and I had stayed in the cottage when it was a B&B and had loved the place. When it was converted to a rental for 10 we knew that we had just the group. The grounds are amazing with a resort-like garden surrounding the pool. The house is spacious with indoor and outdoor seating areas so that even with a large group, it never felt crowded. It even has two sets of laundry equipment to make washing easy for all. It couldn't have been a better getaway. We're looking forward to doing it again.
The house was beautiful. Communication from the property manager was excellent. Exceeded our expectations!!!!
Our family enjoyed this property and "uncle Dan" so much. It was a peaceful retreat from the chaos in the world. The pool was awesome and used by us all. The beach was beautiful. We will be back!! Thank you, for sharing your property with renters. From ziplining to snorkeling the island was amazing.
When you stay somewhere that love has been poured into, you feel it the moment you stop into the property, This is what Dan’s place is~ loaded with charm and local flavor in materials and finishes. The glass surrounding the upper floor allowed for a tropical paradise view and cross breeze. So many outdoor places to socialize or find your own corner. We loved it all…the pool was perfect ; feels like a home away from home and many can stay. Location is ideal as Shipwreck beach is our favorite and the Hyatt is wonderful for a coctail right on the ocean if desired We all Enjoyed meeting you Dan!! Thanks for sharing this wonderland of a property and we hope to be back one day!
Everything was perfect - starting from Dan welcoming us up to the time we had to leave again. We stayed with 3 generations of our family from four different countries and everyone loved it. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures suggest. We found all we needed and everything is very well maintained. Some of the lasting memories are the short evening strolls to the beach, seeing the sunset and watching the turtles coming up on the sand for a nap.
Was like staying at our own private spa. Such tranquility! Our large family had an amazing stay. Swam in the pool everyday. Used the hot tub. Cooked meals every night. Walked to Shipwreck Beach. Walked to Poipu Beach Park. Loved hiking the Manaulepo trail. Neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. But house feels incredibly private. Dan was awesome! Very responsive and always available to answer questions. It’s clear the owners have put a lot of work into this house. Would 100% recommend!!!
The house and property were great. The swimming pool was magnificent. Ocean views from the upper deck was icing on the cake. The property was well maintained. The house had everything that one could ask for. The bedrooms and baths were very nice offering privacy when needed. We hope to be back to this lovely place.
What a lovely home! It was perfect for our family vacation with kids and grandkids. Very comfortable home and plenty of room for everyone. The gardens are a tropical paradise and everyone enjoyed the pool.
Dan is a great host and we were so happy to find this beautiful place.
We had such a wonderful time staying here. Dan was very welcoming and very helpful. The house is very comfortable for a large family gathering. The gardens surrounding the house are gorgeous, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a garden oasis. We got to watch the coconut trees get trimmed up, which was pretty cool. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils and lots of spices. I would check the kitchen before you go out shopping for something. We loved the fact that that the Hyatt is next door and took advantage of their restaurants and spa. The pool at the house was a great place to relax. All in all, it was an amazing vacation and this lovely home played a big part in it. Thanks so much!
Terrific opportunity to forge lasting memories with three generations of family. Kids loved the pool, parents loved the serenity, and grandparents loved the space. It could not have been more perfect for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration.
Carl (Sonny) J.
We cant begin to tell you what a terrific property this is. We had a family get together and memories were beyond expectations because of this oasis. The landscaping is beautiful, the pool relaxing, and proximity to beach and activities perfect. I even learned how pool mechanics work.
Thanks again to Dan and Speedo 😎
The property was fantastic. Plenty of space, modern, clean, close to beach, close to shopping, relaxing backyard, easy check in, and no surprises. We'll definitely come back.
The property was great...the poop was a real plus for thr grand kids. Spacious enough for us to be all together or chilling by yourself.
We loved it and hate to leave...
Nice house, but some issues need to be addressed. 1. Bungalow had no hot water for two days, because propane tank was empty and was not checked before we got there. (Nothing in renters book about it.) Smoke detectors have been removed from house. 3. Herbie the pool vacuum didn't work very well, always something on bottom of pool .Pump/filter did not clean surface. Someone came to try to adjust it, but still had leaves/flower petals on surface. 4. A coffee maker in the pool master suite would have been nice. 5. Only one tube and a few noodles for the pool--with 8 of us, we had to go out and buy some.
This property is very beautiful! The landscaping makes you feel like you are in your own private oasis, with lush plants and trees all around. The pool and hot tub are well-kept and there is plenty of seating with comfortable lounge chairs. The house is laid out so that a group can be together for meals and socializing, while at the same time providing private spaces for downtime. We were a group of 7 people and we had a wonderful time! Dan is a great host and a very kind person. We would stay at this property again.
This home is beyond! The photos are beautiful and still somehow don't do justice to the real thing. It was like living in a paradise within paradise. Dan and Lynette provided everything we could possibly want or need to help make our stay and vacation memorable. Dan and family friend Kevin made us feel so welcome and responded to communications so quickly! They were such gracious hosts. We would absolutely love to stay here again if we're ever back in Kauai!
Beautiful home, just a few minutes walk to the beach. The property had everything we could hope for and was well stocked with the basics. Thank you to our hosts for making us feel welcome to the island.
Beautiful, fully modern house. Loved everything about it from the very comfortable accommodations, the lush outdoor tropical garden, outdoor showers, pool and the easy walk to the beach. Uncle Dan is wonderful and very accommodating. He did everything he could to make our stay outstanding. Would definitely rent again.
Unquestionably even more beautiful and better than advertised. Truly a tropical paradise! We had 11 in our family. Can't imagine a more perfect place for all of us to enjoy a dream vacation. Owners are friendly, informative, and responsive to every need. Thank you, Dan and Lynette!
Heaven on Earth!!! That sums up this property and this island. Dan is one of the most generous and authentic people I have met. He absolutely emulates the Aloha Spirit. We were a family ranging from 7-68 years old. This property makes you feel like you are staying in a botanical garden. The yard is absolutely magical. It's so secluded and private and yet within walking distance to the ocean. This trip has been a long time coming filled with lots of emotions and with Dan's help and beautiful rental, we had a perfect trip. Dreaming about the day we can all return together and we will absolutely be coming to see Dan at Poipu Bay Getaway again. Mahalo Dan and Lynette. We were blessed to get to meet you.
This rental was stunning! Best VRBO we have stayed thus far. Great location, wonderful owners. We had two families of four along with a couple in the seperate bungalow. The property has plenty of room for everyone and you don't feel crowded. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Kauai.
Best. Trip. Ever
The house lived up to our expectations. The only negative might be the bathroom in the large master bedroom; linens and towels could be more elegant. Otherwise, we were comfortable and would return.
We hated to leave. We’ve stayed in many VRBO homes but this home hit nearly all our buttons. We’ll stocked, comfortable but not too fussy, plenty of privacy for each couple, incredible pool and hot tub, lush landscaping. Dan and his family were accommodating but not intrusive. We hope to return soon!
I have to start with Dan. What a gem of a human! From start to finish he was a dream to work with…and our crew had postponed dates due to Covid, airline date changes and Dan was more than accommodating, he was caring, friendly, easy to reach and talk to, and sincerely generous. While on our stay we lucked out and got to meet several family members as well who no doubt got the family gene. All as friendly and warm as could be! Dan welcomed us and even allowed us to drop baggage off early. He gave us a tour to explain everything and the part that stood out most he said, “This is your vacation so I want you to relax and enjoy everything, anything else you need just call Uncle Dan.” We felt spoiled and taken care of. Now, on to the house…. It was more gorgeous than pictures represent. Lush gardens, tropical breezes, wonderful spa and pool, every amenity was thought of and provided. We stayed with 3 generations of our family (ages 4 to 71) and every single person LOVED it! Our trip was unbelievably dreamy and we came home and set a plan to eventual move there one day. Now of only we could find a house as amazing as this one… that would be heaven.
If I could give Dan and his house 10 stars I would. Dan goes above and beyond, he is delightfully welcoming to this slice of Paradise. Our group of 6 (3 pairs of mothers and daughters) had plenty of room to spread out and relax in and out of the house. The kitchen was well equipped and the living spaces were exceptionally comfortable and cozy. The pool and garden were stunningly gorgeous. In fact we spent almost our entire last day relaxing around the pool. This house was a perfect place to spend our last 2 days before departing Kauai. We would definitely stay again, but longer!
The house and yard are beautiful. Very comfortable and accommodating to groups or young families. The kids loved the pool. Ample lounge seating and outdoor space. Hot tub was also a nice addition. House is an easy walk to the beach and trail. Super close to all the great snorkeling spots, and easy location to travel west or east to explore more of the island. We will definitely come back!
Bayview is one of the most beautifully landscaped yards I have ever seen. The property is close to anything that you could possibly want to do or see yet you feel like you are on your own private island. The house itself is set up just right to vacation with family, allowing enough space for everyone to be together as a group yet has private areas for more personal time if needed. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property for your vacation in Kauai. Thanks Dan for being such a great host!
After 3 Covid-caused delays we were finally able to make it to Kauai and our stay at this property. Believe me, it was worth the wait. The house is beautiful, well-appointed and comfortable. The pool and grounds are incredible. And the location is perfect. We loved our early morning wals to the beach and being so close to Poipu - the perfect place for swimming, snorkeling for the kids and watching the turtles come in for the night. I received lots of accolades for reserving this house for our extended family vacation. Hope we have an opportunity to return!
Our extended family of 12 had a wonderful time at this tropical paradise, from the lush, beautiful gardens and crystal-clear pool to the lovely accommodations that felt like we had our own private resort! The separate living spaces included a detached ohana that was adorable and a lower level “apartment” allowing for lots of privacy for our large family. We also loved the location, as we could walk right off the property with only a short distance to a number of beautiful beaches, hiking trails, restaurants, etc. Our host, Uncle Dan, was amazing and was readily available if needed. Needless to say, we were all very sad to leave such a wonderful place and dream of coming back someday! Mahalo 😊
This was an awesome home in a great area-- Especially wonderful was the attentiveness and true caring of Dan from beginning to end. Nothing was left to chance and he personally took care of things from the initial phone calls 2 years ago to bringing paper towels over during our stay.-- Very rare to get that kind of service. It is better than what you see in the listing-- For our family-- 4 sons and their wives and kids-- we could not have had a better place to stay on a wonderful island!!!
Perfect place for walking along beaches and some nice places to eat and drink. Shopping and sight seeing all close by. Host gives you great places to check out. House has everything you need.😃
We needed a place for just one night before our flight… so thankful we found this home available! The pool and hot tub were a perfect end to the day, while listening to the luau next door. Perfect location, so close to Poipu, and a short walk to the Hyatt where we watched a gorgeous sunrise and enjoyed their buffet breakfast before our departure. Dan was so friendly, kind, and extra-accommodating. Hopeful to return and stay at his fantastic home again, for more than one day!
Excellent location and setup for a family. Very short walk to shipwreck beach (great for even the smallest of kids) and a short drive to other beaches. Many shops and restaurants close as well. The house itself is perfect for a family group. Owner was super helpful and offered to be available for anything we need but we didn’t need anything! House was literally perfect.
This amazing property was the most beautiful of any at which we have ever vacationed. The grounds are full of tropical greenery and flowers and it was so lovely to relax by the pool and enjoy the hot tub in the gardens. The house is gorgeous and looks just like a Hawaiian home should look, with natural stone and wood and views all around of the foliage. The location was perfect for us, with a short walk to a beach where we saw a monk seal and hiked on the cliffs. A 5 minute drive to Poipu Beach brought us to a perfectly calm and shallow area for the littlest kids and snorkeling for the older kids and adults. Good shopping is nearby and the road up to the canyon was very handy. Dan was there whenever we needed anything and is a fun relaxed host. We are telling all our friends about our stay and enthusiastically recommending they come here with their families. We hope we can all come again soon. Laura E.
This was a wonderful place to stay. As has been mentioned, the grounds are amazing and inspiring. Dan was very responsive/communicative ahead of and during our visit. The pool was outstanding. It was a very short drive to Poipu, with some of the best snorkeling I've experienced. Also, Shipwreck's beach was a short walk, and the swimming and underwater sea life there was fantastic too--though the ocean was a bit too rough there for the kids to play in. It was overall a refreshing and amazing vacation!
We had a great time at this property. Lots of room for our family of 11. We loved being able to walk to the beach. The kids loved being able to jump in the pool at all times of the day. So many lovely outdoor seating areas for everyone. Would highly recommend this property!
From the 3 year old to the 70 year old and all persons in between felt this property could not be improved on. The house was perfect for little ones, the pool gun for the 8 and 10 year old. Close to the beach, hiking and the Grand Hyatt if you get the urge gor Shaved Ice. We all loved it
This property was really amazing. I highly recommend it for all types of trips from business to leisure. Our trip was family and the property is spacious enough that no one felt as though there was a lack of privacy even though together for an entire week. The pool is large and refreshing with a jazucci that is quite intimate. Multiple seating areas for relaxing and dining. I echo other reviewers and would suggest not buying spices or alcohol until you've seen what is in the pantry. I slept in the pool room which is essentially a 2 bedroom casita. It is perfect for solo like me or a family with baby that want some privacy from the main house. All of the living quarters were quite lovely. There is nice original art throughout the house. The owners were extremely friendly and accessible. Their neighbor let us in as they were out of town but they were still readily available. Mother Nature awakens you in the morning. Its really hard to describe. Book the property and you will see. I plan on coming back. The street is on a private road that felt very safe. For what to do: It was hard to leave the house and we were there during early November but I do recommend reservations at Stevenson's at the hotel which is a 5 minute walk away and has lovely grounds to grab a drink or lunch if you dont want to cook. I also recommend the plantation luau and free rum tasting near there. For the rum tasting you have to show up when they open to place your name for later that day btw. We drove to Waimea Canyon and explored small towns. Most of the time we relaxed after perhaps one outing in the morning. I went zip lining. (this was just okay) but highly recommend a kayaking trip to the "secret" waterfall.
We have stayed at many rental properties over the years, but this property stands out head and shoulders above the rest. There were 12 of us staying at the property, and we had a marvelous time. The quality of the house and garden (a tropical paradise) were just outstanding, and Dan (the owner, property manager and pool maintenance technician) was just the perfect host. I could not recommend this more as a top quality vacation rental, except to say that it made our 50th wedding anniversary celebrations complete. Thank you Dan.
We had a large group 5 teenage girls 2, 9 year olds , 3 couples , a toddler and infant . Perfect and good separation of space . The teens occupied the terrace suite it was perfect for them . One downstairs room occupied by two 9 year olds was perfect and the other larger bedroom occupied by the family with toddler and infant gave them the space they needed. The bungalow gave a couple a great experience as it was their first time to the island .. actually all guests except 2 were first time visitors and this home made it so tropical! The pool is absolutely fabulous!! Large and deep which made it fun for everyone !
If you a chance to get on the calendar… don’t hesitate . With covid it took us two years to get to enjoy the home and before that I looked at renting this home but it was always booked !!
If you get lucky to book this home you will also experience very gracious hosts ! Dan and Lynette really care about your experience.
Don’t hesitate you found the perfect slice of paradise !
Absolutely loved this place. The host was very accommodating and communicative. The house was clean and well stocked and the yard/pool/hot tub is fabulous in addition to close beach access. The bedrooms and layout was perfect for five couples, especially with two having separate entrances and additional privacy. Would highly recommend this place and would return!
We had two families (12 of us)-all children in their 20’s. There were plenty of areas to hang out and not be on top of one another or feel cramped. Pool/hot tub was amazing. Close walk to beach and longer walk to Poipu beach where you can get a snack or have happy hour. Dan was an amazing host and was available for anything we needed. There were plenty of bathroom and cleaning/laundry supplies on hand which was very helpful. Two refrigerators were necessary and nice to have. The extra cabana house was great for our newlyweds.
Dan is an amazing host and the photos do not do the property justice. It is in a perfect location with amazing grounds. You could not ask for more.
Great property! The pictures do not do it justice. Great location - close to the beach. The gorgeous landscaping provided privacy with lots of seating areas both by the pool and in the shade. ..beautiful oasis with serene surroundings! You can stay here and enjoy the backyard without going anywhere else on the island. We had 7 adults and 3 kids. Each had their own private sleeping areas. The kitchen was fully stocked with all you need to do your cooking. The view from the living room is fantastic. The patio area has a view of the ocean as well as the downstairs backyard. If you are looking for a great place to stay this is it! Look no further! Dan was responsive to all our questions, was easy to reach and checked in on us several times. A great host! Were sad to leave; hope we get a chance to return one day. Highly recommend Bayview!
We were supposed to celebrate our 50th anniversary last year, but Covid postponed things. With Dan's help we were able to schedule for this year. The ten of us just returned home after a wonderful week on Dan and Lynette's property. The house is great with enough bedrooms and baths for our large group. The kitchen-great room area with an ocean view balcony was perfect for cooking, playing games and listening to our 9yr old grandson give concerts on his ukulele.
The backyard is your personal piece of paradise. Beautiful pool and enough nooks and crannies to keep sun and shade lovers happy.
Dan was great, we adopted him into our family. He took care of any questions we had and gave us helpful tips about the area. We can hardly wait to come back and see him again and meet Lynette.
Mahalo for an incredible week!
John and Vicki and our family
Photos do not do this property justice. A true botanical garden. Home is absolutely stunning. Dan, our host, was always available and very charming! Plenty of room to spread out for our family. Fabulous experience.
We loved the property, so richly landscaped and so many nooks and crannies to tuck away into if that's what you prefer and comfortable family areas if gathering is your preference. There's a close and lovely walk to the ocean near the Hyatt or a further and also pretty walk up to Poipu beach.
The house easily accommodated our three households with children--the bungalow and separate bedroom areas each with bathroom and coffee stations made private time possible, while the communal areas allowed for as much together-time as we wanted.
This was our first time to Hawaii. We took our two children, their spouses and our three grandkids. Ages from 2 to 78 and a fun time was had by all. (So glad there was a baby gate at the top of the stairs!) Any issues or questions we had were answered promptly, completely and without any sense that we were a bother.
A couple of things for visitors, at least in the near future:
first, because of a landslide the road up to the north has limited opening windows--a couple hours early, mid-day and later in the day. Be sure and time your trips north to match the openings or, like us, you'll go all of the way to Princeville and not be able to go further. Second, we couldn't get a reservation into any of the 'good' restaurants (by good, I mean highly recommended and pricier) because they are all booked out through the end of August. So, if you know you want to go to Tidepool or another air-conditioned, luxury restaurant, make your reservations far in advance of your trip. Otherwise, roll with it, open-air spots with the ubiquitous chickens roaming free are available--just prepare for a wait. Speaking of waiting, my kids found that if you ordered ahead at the popular coffee spots, you could walk right up past the huge lines and pick up your coffee/breakfast to go.
Enjoy, aloha, and mahalo to our hosts!!!
Our family group, ages 9 through 70's, spent an unforgettable week at this fabulous home. First impression was that the home and grounds were exactly as pictured, only better. There was plenty of room to spread out, as well as room to gather. The home was clean and shiny, and the kitchen was well stocked for any type of cooking we did. The salt water pool was a favorite spot, as well as the hot tub. The landscaping on the property provides beauty and privacy. Of course, being so close to the beach was a highlight. Dan, our host, was very helpful and friendly. In all, this vacation home was everything we had hoped for and we highly recommend it for families.
I really cannot give this rental property a high enough review. The property itself is an actual paradise. The pictures don’t begin to do it justice. We were a party of 12 from three separate families and we all fit comfortably with room to sprawl out and relax. We went on many excursions while visiting Kauai and at the end of the trip we all agreed that our favorite memories were actually while we were at the rental house. The house has such a stunning tropical paradise for a yard. The pool created endless hours of laughter and lounging together. We all were able to decompress and truly experience relaxation and restoration. The house is fully equipped for your every need. The location is amazing! Dan and Lynette will go above and beyond to provide the best experience you could hope for. You will not find a more beautiful property or more kind and generous homeowners than here! We never wanted to leave and definitely hope to return one day.
Gorgeous property that you can tell is loved like a home, not a rental property.
The layout was perfect for us- in the main house my husband and I used the master king bed/bath on the second floor (same floor as the kitchen) with our two kids downstairs, each in a bedroom. My brother's family stayed in the master suite on the first floor of the main house. One thing to note that wasn't a problem for us is that this master suite can't access the kitchen without going outside. It has a beautiful view of the pool (the king bed can be separated from the living area in the suite by sliding doors- their toddler slept on the bed on the other side of the sliding door from them while their infant was in a pack and play next to their bed. Then there is also a third king bed in a separate bungalow on the property which we didn't have a need for as my sister's family was unable to make the trip at the last minute.
1. SUCH a short walk to the beach- we walked to the beach and even walked to dinner at Tidepools at the Grand Hyatt one night
2. You can actually see the ocean from the upstairs patio off of the main living area!
3. baby gate at the top of the stairs and the upstairs patio was enclosed in a way that we felt safe with our 3 toddlers roaming around
4. Very well stocked kitchen- definitely check it out before going to the grocery
5. the air conditioners in each bedroom were SO nice to have (none in the main living spaces which was totally fine with the doors open!)
6. parking was a breeze
7. 3 pack and plays if you have little ones (they're expensive to rent and a pain to travel with so this was nice)
8. awesome hot tub!
1. If you have small children, just know that the pool is not gated off. We knew this going in (and Dan pointed it out too at the time of booking). That being said, this wasn't a problem at all- we always had an adult with our kids at the pool and they wore puddle jumpers
2. The only bathtub in the house is downstairs in the main house so bathing infants and toddlers is a bit of a challenge because of the glass sliding door on the tub. My SIL bathed her infant in the sink and we opted to have 'jungle showers' with our toddlers in the outdoor shower surrounded by beautiful landscaping and close to the pool which they thought was a very special treat (and honestly was great because then we didn't track any sand inside)
Overall, the house was better than we expected and 5 Stars all around!
There were 13 of us from 2 to 72 for our celebration of 50 years of marriage. This place was the perfect place for us. We appreciated how close to our activities it was. We also liked the privacy each living area offered. The pool was an absolute hit especially for the kids. I couldn’t imagine doing a trip like this without it. Dan and Lynette were very helpful and available during our whole stay. The home was complete with many of the little things many places don’t offer. I would check out the kitchen before grocery shopping to avoid buying unneeded duplicates. We had a fantastic time and highly recommend this place and Dan and Lynette.
The pictures on here do not do this property justice. It is an absolutely beautiful home!! Dan is obviously very good at what he does, the grounds were gorgeous, the views are breathtaking. The pool and hot tub were refreshing and soooo relaxing. We had the best family vacation ever. The beach was a close walk, there was, what looked like a man-made pool area at the beach, who knows, It very well could have been natural, but it was great for the grandkids to wade in and the adults to sit and have a cold beverage. Hawaiian Cousin Dan, as the Family soon nicknamed him, was a wonderful host. He was very informative and just an all-around nice guy. We loved every minute, and of course, no one wanted to come home. I highly recommend this gorgeous property. We will definitely be coming back in a few years if they are still leasing it out. If it were my home, I would have a hard time sharing. It was truly the best family vacation we have ever had, and I look forward to the next trip. Thanks so much for allowing us to enjoy your piece of Paradise!! We look forward to meeting your Wife next time!! We were so busy exploring the island, sorry we missed out on visiting with you all more. Thanks Again!! You have made unforgettable memories for our Family!!! Lisa and Family. =)
Our whole family loved this place of paradise.
There are not enough words to express the beauty and luxurious accommodations Dan and Lynette shared with us. One week there was simply not enough. There were 9 family members and we savored each and every minute of our stay there. Dan and Lynette were gracious hosts and catered to our every need. Our hearts were heavy when we had to leave. We will definately make a trip back to this beautiful home, with luscious landscaping, private pool, beautiful sunsets and feeling of privacy. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us .
