Description from owner

Reminiscent of the elegance of a Hawaiian era gone by, this chic & comfortable duplex just had a complete transformation. The plantation home has been divided into separate living areas with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, & 2 completely remodeled kitchens. Located only 4 homes from the most beautiful beach in the world, it is a mere one minute walk. The lushly landscape one half acre garden is a tropical paradise, with expansive grass yard surrounded by banana, papaya & mango trees. The massive plumeria tree adjacent the large wrap around lanai is the most gran quest setting to lounge after a day playing on beach. Our home can easily accommodate 10 guests & is beautifully furnished in a Hawaiian style. Many personal Hawaiian touches showcase the beauty & grace of old Hawaiian in a fresh & clean island atmosphere with an open spacious floor plan.

We just re-built the swimming pool which was damaged in the last hurricane & was left in a state of disrepair for 20 years. The lava wall was reconstructed, new deck & plaster with beautiful landscaping. It is a fabulous addition to the rentals & very unique to have a private pool this close to the beach.

Operated for decades by a long time local island family, this home was their original family compound, where generations were raised. The property is located steps to Poipu & Brennecke's Beach, renowned for swimming, boogie boarding, snorkeling, paddle boarding, picnicking, & huge playground in the park for children - all overlooking the ocean. Baby beach is a protected pool of ocean, where local Hawaiians take their small infants & children to learn to swim without any wave action.

The ocean is so close that the sound of the waves will sing you to sleep at night.

“Fabulous family vacation”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2016

This was the first family holiday where we could all travel together from Australia. During the booking stage the owner Lance could not have been more helpful. The accomodation was perfect for the family of 6 adults and 3 children having both cottages. Location was ideal to walk to the beach which was child friendly, great for surfing and snorkelling. Got to swim with the sea turtles. Did a great walk around Shipwreck Bay and plenty of sightseeing. Would recommend the accommodation to all our friends.

Owner's reply: Mahalo Marie We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay & this one of a kind location in Poipu. We love it there & pinch ourselves every time we visit & realize that we actually own this piece of paradise Lance

“Perfect for 2 families”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2016

We rented both units for 2 families and it worked out perfectly! There was enough space for everyone. The interior of the home is decorated very nicely and the yard is beautifully landscaped. We loved that it was walking distance to the beach and restaurants! Unfortunately during our stay we ran out of hot water. Both propane tanks were empty and they didn't get refilled until the next day. Overall though, it was a great place to stay and Kauai is a beautiful island!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the review & we are very happy that you enjoyed our homes & tropical garden paradise. I apologize about the propane tanks & we replaced them immediately. Prior guests must have manually switched the tanks without letting us know that the 1st tank is empty. We have added signage to alert future guests to contact us as soon as they switch tanks to prevent this from happening again.

Outstanding home. Excellent amenities. Great location. Excellent Great Vacation Retreats responses to questions/inquires. Wife would have liked a/c but understand the costs associated with the heat/humidity.

“Quaint accommodations”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2015

The home was perfect for our needs. It was very spacious for 4 people . An easy walk to Poipu beach was a plus. The neighborhood was quiet and accommodating.

“Perfect location, amazing house.”

We stayed in Beach Hut 1 for a week while on Spring Break in March. It was our first time back to the islands with our kids, and this was the best choice we could have made for a place to stay. One bedroom for adults, kids in the other and plenty of room for family activities. Our daughter woke us up at dawn every morning to go to the beach since it was that close, and it was very enjoyable to not have feet thundering overhead as in a hotel. The equipment provided with the house (boogie boards, chairs, sand toys, etc) was FANTASTIC and got much use!!! Overall, a perfect place to stay and we will stay here again when we return.

Owner's reply: Much mahalo for staying with us!

We were most pleased w/the property, clean, well equipped kitchen, large bath towels, etc. it was only a block from the beach and a lovely park. Shops were a short ride away. I look forward to a return visit to this locale.
