The Poipu Hideaway was designed and created by Santo C. Giorgio - partner with prominent American architectural designer Gary Tobey, Design Concepts - and his wife Hayley K. Giorgio - interior decorator of Design Concepts. Built by local carpenters and craftsmen in the approach of a studio-style beach house, set in a humble neighborhood in Poipu. With less than a 3 minute bike-ride or 12 minute walk you’ll find Poipu’s world-famous Brennecke Beach and rich Pacific Ocean.
Come and share the Aloha.

"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
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!
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.
it was very clean, comfortable and just wonderful to stay at your house! it was such a great time in kauai and we can recommend it! thank you so much!
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.
From the minute we walked into this property, we were so impressed. Tons of space for the family on two levels which even included a lovely outdoor space on the ground floor. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and some basic spices and coffee were also available for us to use. The house is in a quiet location and only a 15 minute walk to the beach and restaurants. The owners even provided a little wagon for the children to ride to the beach in, lots of towels and beach 'toys' were also available. Getting around to other parts of the island was so easy and we just loved having such a wonderful place to return to at the end of the day. The outdoor shower was also a huge hit and the bathtubs were so comfortable and relaxing I didn't want to get out! We can't say enough about this home and highly recommend it. We most definitely would stay here again!
Our stay here was perfect. Beautiful and clean. Close to everything. Sarah, the property manager was great. She lives next door. We had a private chef, Michael Stabber, the south shore chef, come in and prepare our wedding dinner for 8 of us. 6 were staying in the property very comfortably. The dining table is awesome and a fun experience. The house is very relaxing and fun to hang out. We would defiantly stay there again. Thanks for making our week one of two so nice.

Our family loved staying at this home during our vacation. The home was nicely designed with a modern comfortable zen feel. We were there with our kids and grand children and we used the lower bedroom/living quarters as our quiet space. You are able to close the double barn door to the lower section, enjoy the patio seating and hammock, living room space with television and pool table. We very much enjoyed the outdoor shower right outside the lower level suite. Upstairs we used with the rest of the family for dining and entertaining during the day and evening. You will have everything you need (except food and drink of course) in this home to keep you comfortable. The description and pictures are very accurate on the VRBO site and the property manager met us at the home. I sent a text to her to let her know our approximate time of arrival after landing at Lihue airport.
The home is situated in a quiet neighborhood which is very close to Poipu beach. You can enjoy early mornings at the beach ( 6 a.m was my usual time) to see the Honu's (turtles) and Hawaiian monk seals resting on the beach. As a local girl of the islands please kokua..... respect the wildlife and do not venture too near these creatures. They are resting. Please stay 20-30 feet away and use your zoom to take pictures.
A short drive away in Koloa is Big Save market for groceries. A wonderful place to dine in Poipu for a sunset dinner is "Beach House" you should make reservations as this is a popular spot. Food is very good and the service impeccable! There are 2 L & L "drive in" for fast food local plate lunch. You must try this. Get the Kalbi plate you will not regret it!! Also on Saturday and Sunday's you can venture into Lihue for Huli Huli chicken. As of our trip there in June they are located on Rice St. in a parking lot. You will see the chickens rotating on a spit as well as ribs which I did not get....just the chicken please. :)
ONE NOTE OF IMPORTANCE!!! When parking in the front of the house, park in the direction of traffic or you will get a ticket. It doesn't matter if the local neighbors park any kine (in any direction). It appears this home is noted for being a vacation rental and you WILL get a ticket if parked in the wrong direction. I received a $35.00 fine. Oh well.....this did NOT ruin our visit so just be aware.
The Poipu Hideaway of Hayley and Santo Giorgio was perfect for our family and our vacation on Kauai. Beautifully designed with large windows, breezy ventilation, and the secluded patio, it has a wonderful tropical feel. The well appointed kitchen allowed us to prepare and enjoy meals around the large sunken dining table, sharing daily family conversations and laughter. The home sleeps 10 easily, and gave our family great flexibility with children and grandchildren sleeping arrangements. The straight 10 minute walk to Poipu and Brennecke's Beaches was easy and enjoyable, and the boogie boards, bikes, wagon and coolers were well used. Hayley and Santo communicated well with us before and during our visit. We, without reservation, recommend the Poipu Hideaway, and hope to return again.
