Our guest comment says it all!
We stayed at Beachside Poipu for two of the best weeks of my life. It's the personal touches that make this place so special. Walk to the beach - no busy roads - and Kathy checking on how we are doing. Lunch at Brennecke's and Thai shrimp at the Shrimp Station; FABULOUS! Cheryl and Mike - Yukon, Canada
This is exactly what we were looking for; close to the beach, private, quiet and relaxing... absolutely wonderful! Thanks for thinking of everything... beach chairs, mats cooler, laundry soap and most of all... the stars at night. Really Great! Karen and Chris - Amhurst, NY
- children welcome
- non smoking only

About Kathleen Bates
My husband & I (Ed Sindt & Kathy Bates), bought this wonderful beach property in 1978 with thoughts of retirement close to one of the best beaches in the world!
A minute walk to Poipu Beach Park & Brennecke's Boogey Boarding Beach!
We built a home in 1988 and moved to Kauai, heaven on earth. Built a second home on property and rented it out! Alas Hurricane Iniki destroyed both houses. We relocated to California to work. Rebuilt one home and made it a vacation rental.
At last in 2002, we returned to Kauai and decided to start managing the vacation rental home ourselves. We built the second home in Poipu Hale Pua and found we longed to live upcountry and have pets again! We have a beautiful female border collie from the Kauai Humane Society, name Mele. Our neighbors in Kalaheo had a litter of Austrailan Shepard puppies where we found our dog Joe. Both give us the most joy and unconditional love!
We are very happy living on Kauai in the south shore and managing our rentals. We love meeting our guests and hearing of their adventures on island and elsewhere!

Why Kathleen Bates chose Poipu
To us this is the most perfect location in Poipu as it is only a minutes walk to Brennecke's Boogey Boarding Beach and Poipu Beach Park. We are one of the 3 vacation rentals this close to the beach in Poipu. We have really tried with our personal touches to make this a very special island holiday get-away without the expense of staying in a hotel. Located in this charming neighborhood creates special memories for all that have stayed with us.
What makes this house unique
Listening to the sound of the ocean is the Best! Calm & Restful! Whether reading a book or napping or sitting in the sun on the lanais! We are walking distance to 3 good restaurants, Brennecke's Restaurant & Deli (best shaved ice), Casa Di Amici, and Poipu Grill located in Poipu Kai and only a minute walk to the beach!
We don't charge extra for Rooster Wakeup Call!
NOR for unlimited sunshine in the gorgeous south shore of Kauai!
