Our ocean view vacation home is located on the Garden Island of Kauai on the sunny south shore. The beauty of Poipu awaits you at our Hawaiian plantation-style home located right next to Brennecke's Beach (world famous for body surfing) and Poipu Beach Park. Many have said that this is the prettiest house in Poipu. Don't let the low price fool - we just haven't raised our price as much as others - its easily worth $50 to $100 more/night! We're much closer to the beach than any of the rooms at the Grand Hyatt and the beach is much better (with a lifeguard and a beach where you can actually swim!)
Get lulled to sleep by the peaceful sound of waves breaking on the shore at Brennecke's. Check the surf at Left-lefts and Waiohai from the lanai. We are NOT a few minutes drive to the beach we are AT THE BEACH. It is a 45-second walk from your door step until you are swimming in the ocean at Brennecke's Beach located at the east end of Poipu Beach park. Poipu Beach has the only lifeguard on the south shore. It has very protected areas for swimming, snorkeling, body surfing, and boogie boarding with great surfing on the outside reef. Even though sunny Poipu Beach is the most popular beach on island, you have it all to yourself in the mornings - everyone else has to drive here, you see!
The studio is a darling hideaway-great for everyone-but especially nice for newly-weds. Honeymoons and Hawaii are synonymous, you know! Champagne will greet all honeymooners! Any milestone 10th, 25th, 50th anniversaries will also get the royal treatment-just let us know in advance.
We have had many honeymooners stay with us who return year after year. It is such a great spot-close to everything, but still private and quiet.
The Bungalow is a private studio with small kitchenette (microwave, large toaster oven and refrigerator with separate freezer that keeps ice cream at just the right temperature, sink, plus outdoor gas BBQ with side burner), small dining and living area, and private lanai and of course a private bathroom. There is an outdoor shower with hot water for after the beach rinseoffs, in addition to the private bath inside with a porcelain bathtub/shower.
The Bungalow is on the first floor of our home, below our bedroom. We wrapped it up (ceiling and walls) with soundboard so we would not hear any noise, and vice versa, and it worked great! You honestly feel like you are in your own separate place. It's very private, yet we are close if you have questions.
We sit one lot back from the ocean. There is a two-lane road which runs along the shoreline. It is only a service road to the houses in this area so there is not a lot of traffic as it is not a thoroughfare. There are no houses on the ocean side of the road. There is a fairly good ocean view directly in front of the Bungalow as there is a large opening between the two one-story homes in front of us. You have a partial ocean view through the beautifully fragrant plumeria tree in our yard as well as across the rolling green lawn of the empty lot between us and the neighboring home on the west side of our home. We are on a flag lot, so we are far enough away from the road that you get no traffic noise-nothing but the sound of birds, palm trees rustling in the tradewinds and the surf breaking on the shore! It is really pretty great!
If you are a strong swimmer, the snorkeling right out in front is fabulous-lots of turtles and even dolphin on occasion! If you walk along the ocean a short ways to Poipu Beach Park just to the right of the lifeguard station, there is great snorkeling and swimming area in a lagoon which is protected by an outside reef for less confident swimmers. There is also a couple good surfing areas on the outside of that reef (Waiohai and Left-Lefts) and body and boogie boarding at Brennecke’s Beach (not for novices!).
Our home is located within the visitors destination area for this island:
Minimum stay is seven nights, however if there is a gap in my schedule I will accept shorter stays with a 4 day minimum. You'll need to make an inquiry because with a 7 day minimum set, you can't reserve through VRBO without an override from me. VRBO is working on changing this!
