Couples get away
I found this home online & I'm always cautious - not having seen the property or known anyone who had stayed there before. The pictures here are nice, but they do not do the home justice. I belive it has one of the best stocked kitchens for cooking that I have ever seen. A Hawaiian home, complete w/lava rock walls for the entry, wood floors that are beautiful & a view from every room except the DR. Tile in high traffic areas is cool to your feet and nicely done. Master is outstanding and has a closet I wish I had at home. The master bath is, I believe, a work of art & might make you want to stay in the tub or the shower (complete w/state of the art shower heads) - but can't do that b/c you will miss the ocean, the view, the flowers, the pool (temp was too cool for us to get in), or the hot tub (which we did use)! Bult in the 80's but the ower has done a very nice job of updating and making it a beautiful and comfortable home. It is a little farther up the coast - north or Waimea - but if you want to cook in some and eat out some ~ then this is a great place to do that & that is what we usually do on vacation. We found some great places to eat: the Grove Cafe' just south of the house was great & we did drive to Poipu for the Hyatt Luau & Lihue to eat at Duke's. This is a drier area so it's not as 'lush', but the property has nice plantings & palm trees that surround the home. Caretaker checked in w/us each day to see if we needed anything ~ we like that. A harbor is a short drive for a dinner/snorkeling cruise north to the Napli coast. If you hike ~ then Waimea Canyon is in this area. We had two couples and room to spare. Home sits on about 1 acre so lots of spreading out. 3 bedrooms: Oversize Master at one end, then 2nd master (California King & great shower) & 2rd bedroom w/twin beds & bath at opposite end. All have outside access. The night sky view is spectacular & shouldn't be missed ~ laying under the stars, a gentle breeze, and the sounds of the ocean. The morning brings coffee by the pool, more soft breezes, ocean view, & wonderful privacy. Our thanks to the owner to stayed in touch & made the rental process easy, especially since we were coming here 6 days after our daughter's wedding & she and new husband joined us.
