About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath Spacious Home

Poipu Vista Villa is a custom designed home in Poipu Kai Resort. Ocean and mountain views are just the beginning for this Hawaiian paradise. The incredible design of this home literally brings the outdoors in, creating a place to relax in peace and privacy with beautiful panoramic views ranging from the mountains to the sea from the living area and wrap around lanai.

Upon your arrival you will know that you are 'Somewhere Special'. A 40 foot wall of glass paneled mahogany doors lead out into your very own private tropical garden with a lava rock sunken spa and pond with a walkway that winds you through a rainbow of colored tropical flowers and palms. The lushly landscaped grounds include orchids, tropical plants, banana and palm trees which greet you swaying in the gentle breezes.

When you finally make your way back indoors you will find it tastefully appointed in an Asian/Bali design reflecting style and grace with natural bamboo and quartzite flooring and a open Hawaiian style, spacious floor plan. A custom gourmet kitchen with an island and granite counter tops over red oak cabinets and breakfast bar seating for four persons. The dining area has seating for up to 10 persons at a formal but relaxed setting.

Poipu Villa Vista is set up on two levels which offers privacy to families traveling together and is ideal for family reunions. The first level is an Ohana, which has a separate entrance through French doors. This apartment includes two of the bedrooms and a bathroom along with a full second kitchen with granite counter tops and all new appliances including a large side by side refrigerator freezer with water and ice in the door, microwave and full oven and stove.

About Nick and Wendy

We live in the beautiful Town Los Gatos in Northern California. Nick is originally from England and Wendy from Southern California, but we have both lived in Silicon Valley for over 20 years. We have been married for 18 years and have three fantastic children. We are excited to take over the management of this longtime successful Poipu vacation rental !

Why Nick and Wendy chose Poipu

We enjoy traveling to the Hawaiian Islands and have enjoyed many family vacations on Hawaii, Maui and Kauai. But our favorite spot is Poipu in Kauai. On our last trip Nick came across Poipu Villa Vista on his morning run, on a whim he picked up a flyer. Low and behold we are now the proud owners!

Poipu Villa Vista has been a successful rental for several years, and under the previous owner had a strong history of happy customers. We are excited for the opportunity to continue providing happy memories for many more families!

What makes this house unique

The panoramic views from this Poipu Kai Crestview home are reason enough to stay. However with it's 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths it can easily house two families, so we can travel with our friends and family and so can you. The size and location close to beaches make for endless possibilities. Maybe you will see a Monk Seal on Poipu Beach at sundown, or boogie board every morning at Shipwreck beach, get a great massage at the Hyatt, cruise the NaPali coast in a catamaran and visit Waimea Canyon just to name a few. Sunny Poipu is a great spot to hang out or launch your explorations. Enjoy Kauaui!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family vacation was surely enhanced by staying at such a beautiful home with plenty of room for everyone. The location of this home was ideally to home base from; whether you choose a short walk to the beach, pool or a car trip to see the many wonders the island has to offer. We certainly will be booking another trip, including lodging at your home. Thanks again for sharing your home with our family.

Absolutely beautiful place to stay in the perfect location on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We don’t want to leave this beautiful house!! Our week long stay to celebrate my Hawaii Five 0 Birthday could not have been any better. This property was the highlight of our stay. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and we could easily walk to beaches. We drove sometimes too and found parking fairly easy. Everything we needed was available to us for a fabulous visit to Hawaii!

Perfect Home for Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 10 night stay at this beautiful home. We have rented several homes on Kauai, and other places, and this one was definitely one of our favorites.

We had ten people in our group, four aged 17-22 and the rest mid-40s. There was a perfect amount of space for everyone, and the younger set had their own space to hang out and enjoy their time away from the parents.

The air conditioning in the bedrooms worked fantastically. This was important to us Oregonians that aren't used to warm weather. The appliances were all top notch, the kitchen was well stocked for everything that we needed. I'd highly recommend stopping by the house before doing any grocery shopping, there will likely be things at the house that you don't need to buy. The only downside to the kitchen was that the refrigerator was not particularly large, so it was a bit of a Jenga game to get all of the food that we bought at Costco to fit. This isn't a criticism, more of a warning to others to not go crazy when grocery shopping (we did - good thing there's a full sized fridge downstairs too!)

The beds were easily the most comfortable we've slept in for a long while. So much so that we took a picture of the brand and ordered one when we got home. Never before have I come home and said "I miss the rental home bed" - usually it's the other way around.

The location of the home is great, close to Poipu and Shipwreck beach, with lovely mountain views. When we were at the house, we would open up the doors front and back and a lovely breeze would blow through.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this home, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay in it again. We had a fantastic time.

Beautiful property, ideal for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent an unforgettable week in this beautiful, spacious home. We went to Kauai for our daughter's wedding and enjoyed our family time immensely. The house was everything we wanted it to be. Room for everyone. At times there were 15 of us there for dinner and there was ample room for all of us. The kitchen was huge and allowed everyone to mingle while the meal was being prepared.

The bedrooms were perfect - everyone slept well on the beds.

We also used the Ohana downstairs for the grandchildren and their parents. They had privacy when they needed it and a separate kitchen for snacks.

Thank you!

Elegant home for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and perfect for our family reunion with open common space with lots of space for everyone to hang out or relax with a book, or cook up a feast. Easy walking access to Poipu Beach, Shipbreaker's beach and Dune Trails. Wendy was very responsive during the booking, and on-site manager was even able to help us find a place for trick or treating to make the kids' Halloween a success while we were far away from home. Thank you for your stellar service and cannot wait to come back and stay with you again.

Perfect house for a large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for 10 people. Décor, location, ambiance, and size was amazing. We will be using this location again for sure. The kitchen is very update. The best part is the huge balcony where you can sit and enjoy a sunset or sunrise and the beautiful scenery while enjoying a gentle Hawaiian breeze.
