About Santo & Hayley Giorgio

Santo C. Giorgio, born in Venice Beach, California, has been involved in the field of architecture for the past 14 years. He has been the draftsman and project manager for American architectural designer Gary Tobey since 2003 and currently runs their Hawaii office [Design Concepts Hawaii] on the North shore in Kilauea.

Hayley K. Giorgio [Ham Young], born in Ha’ena, Kaua’i, has worked in the field of interior design since 2007 and is the interior designer at Design Concepts Hawaii. She has studied at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Cal-State Fullerton.

"We love to have fun together and thrive off of the beauty Kauai feeds us. When we’re not in the field we’re either in the water or outside enjoying life."

Santo & Hayley Giorgio purchased this house in 2012

Why Santo & Hayley Giorgio chose Kauai

We love Poipu. Being in a local-family neighborhood, for us, has more heart and sincerity. You have the opportunity to really feel at home in a new place. And having been originally raised on the north shore, Kipuka Street has been a 'Hideaway' for us ;)

We enjoy the ocean, riding our bikes, eating really good food and relaxing... 10 of our favorite restaurants and majority of Poipu's beaches are within 2 miles from our house! Our enthusiasm might sound corny but we love it!

What makes this house unique

In our home we enjoy the modern design and the comfortable climate Poipu has to offer. Everything is within walking or biking distance and typically when the rest of the island is raining we're still in that sunny bubble. This home is perfect for family gatherings, a romantic couples getaway, and adult groups. During the day, the electricity we consume is being generated by the sun ;)

AND, all our hot water is made by that same solar energy too! Our intention is to be conscious and as involved as we can in using alternative forms of energy in order to preserve our environment and the Earth we are so grateful to be a part of.

The Poipu Hideaway has taken the step to making a difference.

Perfect home for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here. Sara, the property manager, was very friendly and was always available if I had any questions. The house was more than enough space for our family- 7 adults and a toddler. Baby gate and pack and play were provided upon request. It is a 5-10 minute walk to Poipu beach and a short drive to lots of shops. On our last day we got a lot of rain, so the pool table was perfect for that downtime. All in all- we absolutely loved the house!

Wonderful family home for a true Kauai experience...

  • 5 of 5

Poipu Hideaway offers a stunning, well-equipped and comfortable vacation rental for a family vacation. The layout offers flexibility and privacy, the decor is beautifully appointed and it is a very quick walk to a child friendly beach, restaurants and shops. It was the perfect spot for our first visit to Kauai, and hopefully not the last!!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as depicted and reviewed by others. It also has the best equipped kitchen of any vacation rental home we have ever experienced - so if you plan to cook - you will not be disappointed. This home is close to Poipu beach, shopping, golf and not too far from some good hiking.

Easy breezy modern rectangles

  • 4 of 5

Poipu hideaway is found in a quiet neighborhood north of Poipu beach. The exterior and interior design is modern with clean rectangular lines throughout each element including the electrical outlet covers which are oriented in horizontal fashion. For me the theme suggests lounging and relaxation which we attempted to do to the fullest extent allowed by local law and customs.

Top Floor: The kitchen, which is open to the adjacent living room, a small almost invisible window let's light in from the east casting a long narrow strip of sunlight across the opposite walls. The kitchen was well stocked with any needed cookware, glasses, and silverware.

We make several meals in the kitchen and dined both at the long (yes you guessed it) rectangular counter and at the recessed table. The grill is conveniently located just steps from the kitchen through a sliding door on the south patio, which patio wraps around to the front (east) side of the house.

The family room had plenty of couch space and a ridiculously large wall mounted TV on which we watched the Olympics almost every night. We maintained a Kardashian free TV throughout our stay but all of the atrocities of cable TV were available. Electrical outlets were conveniently located on the base area of the couch for device charging.

The upstairs master bedroom closet had plenty of hangers and shelf space for our clothing. The king size bed was comfortable. There is an AC stand alone unit in the upstairs master that we used the first night only. After our adjustment to the humidity we just opened all the windows through the house and let the breeze keep us cool especially through the large sliding patio door. There was an industrial strength super blaster fan if we needed it but we did not.

The yoga room is adjacent to the upstairs master on the northeast corner of the house and has sliding door access to the patio. There is a bed in this room and we asked for a pack and play using this space for our 20 month old baby/toddler/tiny terror. We kept a small fan pointing at her through the night to keep her cool.

The kids room has two twin beds and is also on the top floor in the northwest corner of the house eith an AC unit.

The outdoor living space downstairs was confortable and well secluded by plants. We loved the hammock and fake grass.

Driving to the beach was 45 SECONDS.

We loved the place which was an excellent base for our exploration all over the island.
