4 bedroom, 3.5 bath vacation home sleeps 4-8 (2 King, 1 Queens, 2 Twin)


Comments From Guests of Kauai1522

"This is a wonderful home that is extremely convenient in Poipu! We had two toddlers with us on this trip and 6 adults, there was a ton of room and the home is equipped with everything you could need, including snorkeling gear, boogie boards, a stroller, kids beach toys, a cart for taking the goods to the beach, two pack'n'plays and small step stools for the kids in the house. The pool is small, but heated and very comfortable and easy to use for both adults and kids. The homes furniture and beds are very comfortable, they even have throw blankets on all the couches for added comfort. Easy to walk to both the beaches near the Grand Hyatt (Shipwreck included) and Poipu Beach on the pathways throughout the neighborhoods. This is a very walkable area and very convenient. I highly recommend this rental for families and adults, folks who have a hard time with stairs should not rent this home as it is required to use the stairway to get into the main level of the home, otherwise this place is really wonderful." - Danielle M., 02/20/2019 (VRBO Review)

Mahalo for your review! We really appreciate it :)

"We had a wonderful stay at the Bird of Paradise home. Perfect location! We walked the green belt daily to visit both Shipwreck and Poipu beaches. Also loved hiking the Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail accessible from Shipwreck beach. CJM horseback riding stables were a short 5 minute drive away. Keoki's Paradise restaurant early bird special that was recommended by Evan was enjoyed by all. The home was clean and accommodated our family very well. Mountain views from the deck were beautiful. The bungalow suite was a nice feature as well along with the heated pool. Ning was a pleasure to work with and the rental process was smooth with no problems whatsoever. I highly recommend this property and we hope to be back in the future." - Mary J., 02/10/2019 (VRBO Review)

Mahalo nui loa Mary! Thank you for your review and we would love to have you back in the future.

"We were so anxious to return to this property as we stayed there 23 years ago. It did not disappoint !! It is kid friendly with loads of space so no one is on top of each other. The kitchen is fully stocked with the best blender EVER (great for our pina colada's!) and was a bonus to have all kinds of spices left over from past tenants. The location is amazing, beds super comfy with beautiful linens throughout the house. Wish we were still there and would not hesitate to stay at this property again. Property owner was very helpful throughout our whole stay." - Patricia W., 01/13/2019 (VRBO Review)

Thank you so much Patty. We are happy to hear that you all loved to come back to the Bird of Paradise home again. Sorry for the power outage in the Poipu area for a couple hours (this may be the reason you gave 4 stars). It was beyond our control and it affected the Poipu area. KIUC immediately came to fix the transformer and we were glad it was fixed and the power came back quickly.

"We had a wonderful time at Ning's place. We were traveling with 6 kids and needed a safe place for the little ones and entertainment at the house for the older ones. This place fit the bill perfectly. Our older kids loved the pool while the littles napped. Great location. We walked with the wagon full of beach stuff from the house to Poipu and Brennecke beach. Immaculate views. The weather was great in Poipu. We saw a Monk seal sun bathing on the beach. We saw tons of sea turtles snorkeling and on the beach. The house has a lot of space, plenty for our large family. I would stay here again." - Cody C., IL, 01/02/2019 (VRBO Review)

"I researched many properties. I have also used Home Away many, many times. There were two reasons I chose this home. (1) In reading customer comments on other properties they indicated small things like beach chairs were broken or the children outdoor toys were non-non-existant or broken. When I contacted the properties I got comments like what is there is there. That was not the case with this property. (2) When corresponding to the owner or I received a response immediately. I thought that was really exceptional considering our time was 5 hours ahead of Kauai and it was morning when I wrote. Later I found out the owners live in Michigan. They also were very responsive to all questions and requests. They were great to work with. Having stayed in a Home Away rental many times you can tell those that have been occupied by the owner frequently and those that have not. It took us about 5 minutes after our arrival to tell this is a home that is loved by the owner and is frequently occupied by the owner. The best way to describe this home is there is two of everything including washers, dryers and irons. There were enough beach chairs and towels for all 9 of us. The room set up was perfect. I daughter and 3 grandchildren stayed on the lower level and son and daughter-in-law stayed is a separate guesthouse suite while my wife and I occupied the master suite. This house was really comfortable and was a very short 10 minuted walk to the beach with all of the chairs and boogie boards loaded into the fold up wagon that was provided. Cudo's to the owner who has thought about everything a guest would want. This is a wonderful home. It deserves more than 5 stars. Ron S.

Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa Ron! We really appreciate your comments. Yes, it's our passion to share and make our home a great vacation home. Our guests come to Paradise and they have to live like they are in Paradise! Thank you for your stay and, we are very lucky to have you and your family with us.

"My husband and I love travelling and have stayed in vacation rental properties all over the country and the world. The Bird of Paradise home is, without doubt, the best vacation rental we have ever stayed in. The location of the property is perfect. It is walking distance to some of the best beaches on the island for children. The views from the balconies are breath-taking. We enjoyed watching the sunrise in the morning and the rainbows in the late afternoons were beautiful. The house itself is so clean, the kitchen is stocked with absolutely everything you need and the beds were very comfortable, especially the one in the \" - Denise p., 11/17/2018 (VRBO Review)

"Great house! Ton of kitchen equipment, great for the home cook! AC works super well!" - Jerry, 11/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

Mahalo for your stay

"We had a wonderful stay at the Bird of Paradise! Easily within walking distance of both Shipwreck Beach and Poipu beach, it was perfectly located for my family's needs. We loved taking our 1 yr old to Poipu beach, where there is a shallow/calm area for kids and babies to swim and play in, and also enjoyed the small and lovely pool at the house. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean and inviting. The views from the deck are fantastic. The best part: all the great stuff they had for our kiddo! Ning had let me know that they would have baby gates, a pack 'n play, and a high chair available for our use, which was awesome, but they even had kid-friendly dishes, sippy cups, and silverware! It was fantastic. Evan, the local house manager, was so friendly and helpful. We'd absolutely stay here again." - Amy, 11/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

"We had an incredible time at your Bird of Paradise home. It is the best VRBO we have ever stayed at. It was so well equipped and the location was perfect. I wanted to let you know how wonderful Evan was. He answered all of our questions and took great pride in telling us all about the places to go and see around the island. When I texted him with a few questions during our stay he answered quickly. I really appreciated his help. Thank you for opening your home up to us. We hope to return next year.

Mahalo again for your stay.

"Waking up every morning to this view is something we will never forget. The pool was almost to relaxing to leave at times but we forced ourselves to walk down to the beach. Place comes with all the beach gear you would ever need, even a wagon if you decide to walk. Place is an easy 10-15 minute walk to Shipwreck Beach where you can set up shop and sneak into the Grand Hyatt Pool when needed. All the bedrooms were well laid out and even though we had a big group, the house seemed very private too. AC works great!!! The fact that this place is book solid for months should speak for itself." - Henry H., Huntington Beach, CA, USA, 09/26/2018 (VRBO Review)

Mahalo for your reviews Henry! We are so glad to hear your amazing stay at the Bird of Paradise home.

"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at your house. The house had every amenity imaginable. We really couldn't fault it." - Richard, 9/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

"We LOVED the Bird of Paradise house! We rented it for 20 nights and the first 10 nights, we shared the 4 bedrooms with 3 other couple friends. What a perfect set up for us! Plenty of room, beautifully decorated and equipped. The second 10 days that group left and our adult children (5) and our 3-year old granddaughter joined us. Another PERFECT fit! Both groups loved the pool and the house. The property manager, Evan, is a really nice guy and is accessible and helpful. Dealing with the owner, Ning, to book was easy and delightful. We already decided we are coming back in 2020! Lovely, well-equipped, clean home -- PERFECT!" - Donis C., 08/24/2018 (VRBO Review)

Mahalo Donis, we are so glad that the Bird of Paradise home was part of your perfect memorable time with family and friend!

"We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful Bird of Paradise home. It was well stocked in the kitchen and with all beach and ocean supplies we needed. In fact I regretting bring so much of our own stuff, I could have saved a suitcase. The beds were comfortable, A/C cold and our group of 8 had more than enough space that we never felt crowded. The property manager was helpful and promptly responded to the one minor issue we encountered. I highly recommend this property for its location as well. It was convenient to everything in beautiful Poipu and we enjoyed walking down to Poipu Beach for snorkeling, boogie boarding and surfing. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay. Would love to come back in a few years when the kids are a bit older. Maholo to Ning for a wonderful stay." - andy w., Austin, TX, 07/12/2018 (VRBO Review)

"We had all been to Hawaii, except the children, but not Kauai. This property worked out great for our group of eight. There were three separate areas for sleeping for our three couples. The best part was the long lanai with fantastic views of the ocean, but mostly the mountains. The salt water pool was nice for when we were home. The house is only a short walk to the beaches and places to eat. The living room is HUGE and so nice to relax in with the great views out the picture windows. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to return someday." - Kim S., Centennial, CO, USA, 07/05/2018 (VRBO Review)

Mahalo Kim. Glad to hear that our home works great for you. This home offers a Huge living room, fantastic views and large wrap around lanai, total of ~ 4000 sq ft living areas.

"Great location and the house was very clean and spacious. We loved having access to all of the beach accessories at the house (snorkels, shoes, boogie boards etc). Beautiful views were just icing on the cake." - Hokulani, 7/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

"We loved our stay at Birds of Paradise. The house is very conveniently located, but still quiet, and the lovely view as per the pictures. The house is extremely well equipped with everything you could need. Communication from Ning was fantastic. Can't recommend it highly enough!" - Cassandra, 7/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

Thank you so much! We so glad to hear that you absolutely loved the house and had a fantastic time there. We would love to have you back anytime on your next visit to Kauai.

"The home was beautiful with incredible views of the mountains! There is a lot of outdoor space to relax, and it’s an easy walk to nearby beaches. The kitchen and BBQ are great for being able to cook meals at the house. Would definitely return!" - Mark, 7/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

Mahalo and Go Blue! :)

"My family of 7 enjoyed an 8 night stay here with plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The location is beautiful and it's just a short walk to the beach or neighboring resorts. Evan was very helpful and a great local resource. This was our first trip to Kauai and the Bird of Paradise home was the perfect spot for us to enjoy our trip!" - Nickole S., Peoria, AZ, 06/12/2018 (VRBO Review)

Mahalo! The home offer 4000 sq ft living space in great location. We are so delight that you enjoy your stay.

"Amazing location and very helpful in giving us information on the local beaches and restaurants. The house was very clean and close to the beach. I went to propose to my girlfriend and they left us gifts for our engagement, amazing experience" - Cristian, 6/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

Congratulations on your engagement. It is so special! We have many groups stay celebrating their birthday and anniversary ( (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) !). You are our first group with a proposal. We would love to have you and your fiance back.

"Our 9-person extended family stayed in this large house. We enjoyed meals on the wrap-around deck after cooking in the well-appointed kitchen. Views of the lush green hills from from the large living room and deck are beautiful. You can walk one way 10m to Shipwreck Beach (gorgeous sunrise) and 10m the other way to neighborhood tennis and also Brennecke’s beach (great boogie boarding). Two fun bars are also minutes away by foot. The house’s pool is very small but is good for cooling off, or young kids. Larger Neighborhood pool is 5-10m walk. Ning was extremely responsive and House manager Evan provided a nice, warm local touch upon arrival and departure. The furnishings could be updated, but overall we enjoyed our stay very much." - Kristin, 6/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

Aloha Kristin, We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay very much. The Bird of Paradise home, with 4000 sqft living area, is in an excellent location (in Poipu -always sunny part of the island), sitting high to see great views; Haupu mountain range, Crater, Ocean, Sunrise, walk to beaches, air conditioning in every room. There are 2 swimming pools for guests. One, the private heated pool at the house which is gated and fenced. Two, a large Poipu Kai pool and large hot tub which is about 5-10 minutes walk from home. Our home is decorated in tropical style with an open floor plan. As soon as we know any furniture/ equipment is not functioning, we try to replace/fix it immediately. Our home manager is easy to reach, so he can answer any question/ fix any problem during your stay. This coming summer 2018, we will renovate the downstairs bathroom, and king suite bathroom next. In April 2018, we already replaced two new outdoor dining sets and all new chaise lounges. We put three high-quality living room sofas in 2017. The floors Brazilian teak, cherry, granite or travertine stone. Every bed is comfortable and, they are newer than 5 years. We use the high-quality towels, beach towels, and bedsheets. We value our guests’ opinion and commit to make this home a wonderful vacation place, a home away from home :-)

"For our purposes the house was perfectly located. Plenty of room for all, house clean and nicely layed out, we never felt crowed. Kitchen well stocked with necessary equipment. Large decks very nice and accommodating. Property manager, Evan was very helpful and knowledgeable. Pool very nice. Only complaint we might have is the necessity of luggage racks in bungalow." - Jeff and Judie B., 05/06/2018 (VRBO Review)

Mahalo! Hope you had a wonderful time playing golf. We are so glad to hear that your group of 9 people never felt crowned! Our home is very close to many places: Hyatt hotel (spa and restaurants), Poipu Bay Golf, Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail, Kiahuna golf course, Shipwreck Beach, Brennecke's Beach and Poipu Beach. As soon as you let us know about your need for the luggage racks, we ordered them right away. As I am typing this response, the luggage racks are at the house and each bedroom now has at least one luggage rack.

"Bed in bungalow has a sway and makes sleeping through the night difficult. The ice maker was not working and we had to spend vacation time filling and cracking ice trays. Several windows do not lock. AC in downstairs Queen bedroom is not working properly. We loved the lanai, and were pleasantly surprised at the amount of equipment for beach activities that we had access to. We enjoyed the pool, parking was convenient, easy to get in and turn around and security lights made us feel safe." - Henrietta F., 05/04/2018 (VRBO Review)

Aloha, we are glad to hear that you loved our home with it expansive lanai providing great panoramic views, warm pool, lots of beach amenities, easy parking and the security lights that made you feel safe. When we refunded your deposit, you mentioned that you enjoyed the Bird of Paradise home very much. Thus, we are a little confused about the minor problems you mentioned in your review, we could have fixed them immediately if you had let us know. Our home manager is only just a text or phone call away. He would stop by to fix any of these problems in less than 15 minutes (tighten the bed frame, change the AC to “cool” mode, get you a pack of ice, etc.) We usually set up AC in the “cool” mode and you can adjust the room temperature up or down as desired. Though, if you changed the mode to “auto” or “de-humidifier”, the AC will function based on the set temperature vs actual temperature. In the morning, it might warm you if the room is cooler than the set point. After you left, we found out that AC in the queen bedroom was set up in “auto”, so we changed it back to “cool” mode. Most of the windows in Hawaii including our house are jalousie type which cannot be locked. However, our home is in Poipu Kai resort which has its own 24-hour private security force. In our 26 years of owning a home in Poipu Kai resort, we have not heard of a single break in. You are always very safe here. In conclusion, we really want you to enjoy your stay very much, so please don’t hesitate to let us know for any problem right away during your stay.

In our 26 years of owning a home in Poipu Kai resort, we have not heard of a single break in. You are always very safe here. In conclusion, we really want you to enjoy your stay very much, so please don’t hesitate to let us know for any problem right away during your stay.

"The view from the lanai is beyond stunning! Very short and beautiful walk from property to the Hyatt which has the best Starbucks with another amazing ocean view! Another short walk to the beach. House was very safe and clean. Plenty of space and we had 8 people there. The convenience of washer and dryer was awesome along with plenty of beach amenities! We loved the pool as well! Evan, the property manager, was very kind and helpful. We had no problems in the home while we were there! We have family on the island and we got to see other places. We would definitely only stay in Poipu, Koloa area. Ning’s home is a for sure place you will want to stay! Make sure to visit Nukumoi surf shop! It was our fave. Puka Dog was also great! Make sure to go to the art walk in Hanapepe on Friday nights. The food trucks there are soooo good! If you want to venture out to another beach, Pine Trees was beautiful and the soft sandy beach was awesome!!! Coming back to Kauai soon!" - Kc G., 04/07/2018 (VRBO Review)

"The house was clean, has nice beds, great views, and had everything we needed plus more. I would recommend this house to others. The finishes are starting to get a little old but everything is taken care of." - michael C., 04/02/2018 (VRBO Review)

Thank you so much for letting us know that our home is clean, nice beds and great views with everything you needed plus more! We replace the home furniture as soon as we detect wear. We will check and make sure our furniture is in great shape and well-taken care of. The beds are new and the outdoor dining set was replaced in March 2018, all three sofas in the living room were put in summer of 2017. After your comment, we found out that our novice cleaning girl cleaned the kitchen cabinets with an abrasive brush, they look scratch-worn out. This may explain part of your comments. We now have our Koa kitchen cabinet resurface. They look great now.

"Close to the beaches and a playground for my granddaughter!" - Susie M., 03/03/2018 (VRBO Review)

Mahalo Susie! Yes, the home is within 5-10 minutes walking distance to Shipwreck beach, Brennecke's beach (excellent for boogie boarding) and Poipu beach park. Poipu beach park is one of the best beach on Hawaii. It has lifeguards, shelters, restrooms and large parking. One of the 3 lagoons is perfect for baby/toddler and playground is next to it. While all adults enjoy the beach, surf, and snorkeling, we are glad to hear that your granddaughter enjoy the beach and playground as well.

"My family of seven stayed for a week at Ning's house, with plenty of space and comfort. The air conditioning units are very quiet, though we didn't need the A/C in the bungalow due to the great cross-ventilation. The view of the surrounding mountains was a welcome change from the typical view you get from a beach condo. The location of the house is ideal for easy 15-minute walks to Poipu Beach as well as west to the Hyatt and beyond on the wonderful trails. The walkways are lit at night, but not so much as to interfere with stargazing. We are grateful to Evan for his intimate knowledge of the area and his \" - Jennifer H., 02/05/2018 (VRBO Review)

"Wow, where do I begin? My friends and I decided to take a trip to Kauai for my husband's birthday - we were going to surprise him. We looked for a home that would work for the 6 of us (5 adults, 1 child). The Bird of Paradise home was perfect for us! The family had the 2 rooms downstairs, we had the master inside and another friend took the bungalow. Right before the trip, I broke my leg and so all of our plans changed... However, the layout of the home allowed me to be part of the group all the time - the lanai was a perfect place for me to just hang out and watch out for whales (yes, we saw some from the deck!). The paths around the resort were clear and wide enough for my rental scooter to go around \" - Mindy A., Poulsbo, WA, 01/22/2018 (VRBO Review)

Aloha Mindy, Mahalo for your review. We wish you a fast recovery. We are glad to hear that the Bird of Paradise home layout works well for you. Since you stayed in one of the master suites (one inside & Bungalow), you were on the same level with living, dining, kitchen, lanai (deck), grill and still enjoy good mountain range/crater/ocean views!. The home has both outdoor stairs (with half stop) and indoor stairs (with half stop), so we were hoping, you could go in/out without much trouble. Nov - April is great period to spot whales and we are glad to hear you spot whales! right at home.

"This house fit our two generation family vacation perfectly. Very well located with short walk to Poipu Beach, Hyatt Hotel or around neighborhood. Lots of large glass windows to maximize stunning views. The property is well cared for and our contact person for questions or concerns about the house was responsive and quite helpful. Loved the location and overall comfort of this house. Our complaints are very minor: one upstairs bedroom lacked a bedside table on one side, several outlets throughout did not work and I wanted better task lighting (for reading, board games, etc.) in the living room. Lastly, the pool was cold--too cold, so I'm not sure it was heated. All that being said, we were all very happy with Bird of Paradise. Thank you for providing such a great place for our family." - Lisa B., 01/01/2018 (VRBO Review)

Aloha Lisa, Glad to hear that you are very happy with the Bird of Paradise home, love the location and overall comfort of this home. Yes, there are large glass windows to maximize stunning views of the mountain range, crater, golf and ocean views. Hope you enjoyed the Christmas time. We will make sure that every outlet is working properly. We provide 4 different light sources in various spots in the living room, some of which have adjustable arms for reading and a bright fluorescent overhead light in the dining room. The main light in the living room can be adjusted so you can watch movies in dim light or play games on the large coffee table in brighter light. We will make sure our guests have enough light for playing board games. Lastly, during the beginning of your stay, the weather was windy and cooler than usual. You mentioned that the pool was cold! I believe you meant the Poipu Kai Association pool/spa. Our pool man stopped by the house every other day to make sure our private pool at home is cleaned and heated to at least 82F (set temperature at 85F). The pool man talked to one of your group members (a man) who clearly mentioned that they have been using free access to Poipu Kai Association pool/spa. The Poipu Kai Association pool is large but not heated. Only our private pool at the Bird of Paradise home is heated.

"We had a short but nice stay in this house. Ning was very friendly and accommodating. The property is beautiful with breathtaking views. The house is comfortable and although the interior isn’t the most up to date, it adds to the charm of this property. Definitely recommend for multiple-day stays." - Yiyang, 1/01/2018 (AirBnB Review)

"Perfect for 4 couples. Lovely home. Great location. Incredible view!! The pool is only ~4 feet deep and more of a larger hot tub size. Would only hope for newer towels as they were a bit scratchy and when you are in the water a lot, but everything else was perfect!" - Lauren S., 10/13/2017 (VRBO Review)

Thank you for your review. Yes, Bird of Paradise home is in a great location and it built to take advantage of 270 degree views, going from the mountains, to partial golf and Ocean views and wonderful sunrises. We are glad to hear that this home was perfect for your group of 4 couples. The pool size is 12 feet x 18 feet and 4 feet deep was built specifically to be safe for young children. The pool is heated to 82F and goes above that in the afternoons. It is perfect for families with children because of its fencing and depth. We heard from many families that their children learned to swim and snorkel in this pool. I am not sure which towels you mention as being scratchy (beach towels or bathroom towels) that were scratchy. When you are in the water a lot and use a towel, it is possible that your skin is soft & sensitive leading to scratchy feeling while using towels. We will make sure our cleaning crew use fabric softener with towels every wash. Our bath towels are high quality Martha Stewart quick dry bath towels from Macy’s, Beach towels are large size Stripe Beach towels from Land's End.

"My family and I just returned from a 10 day stay at the Bird of Paradise house. We enjoyed our trip and hope to return in the future. The Bird of Paradise house was perfect for our family - there was enough room for 8 adults and three grandchildren. The deck that surrounds the house gave us additional space. We enjoyed breakfasts, dinners and late night chats on the deck while we enjoyed the beautiful views and breezes. The younger children loved to dip in the pool after we returned each day from the beach. We cooked all of our dinners at home since we had small children. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The outside grill is brand new. Evan, the house manager, met us on the first day and was kind enough to give us a driving tour of the location (beaches, pools, etc.). The only negative I can think of is the noise in the morning for those who have the two lower bedrooms. However, if you don't travel with young children who are early risers, then this won't be a problem!" - Peggy S., 09/15/2017 (VRBO Review)

It's located on the Kiahuna Golf Course and the neighborhood is very quiet and beautiful. Close to many nice beaches and Spouting Horn.

Mahalo Leslie for your comments and title for our Bird of Paradise home. We have awesome lanai areas to watch 270 degree Poipu views, suntan areas, quiet reading area, BBQ area and dining areas. The pool dimension is 18 x 12 ft^2, 4 ft deep and heated. We have a fence around the pool and a gate lock to prevent small children entering without adult supervision. The road in front of the house is a private Poipu Kai Resort road so normally it does not have much traffic. Unfortunately during your stay the next door house was being renovated (and has ended), this resulted in 6-7 pick-up trucks coming and going several times during the day with their accompanying noise. Our house and garden are on the hillside which is at least one story above the road and all of our bedrooms are at back of the house away from the road so they will not get much noise. In regards to some minor repairs needed to appliances. Sorry about the LG dishwasher (< 1 years old) failed during your stay. We tried to fix it the next day but due to motherboard related problem which takes about a week to arrive from mainland. We care about our guest’s comfort, so we bought and installed a new dishwasher, replaced the faulty LG dishwasher the next day. You also could not get one of the washers to work but it is working fine. When you want to start the wash, you need to press start and hold for 3 second. We put a label on this washer now, so the error will not happen to other guests. The AC in the living area was installed according to the square footage of the living area. Due to the open floor plan of our living room, it takes a while to cool. There are fans to distribute cold air that can be used with AC as well. The home is facing the trade winds which blow most of the year and make AC unnecessary. We encourage guests to open windows (east and west sides) to let tradewinds flow through. Thanks to perhaps global warming this year the trade winds were not blowing during the beginning of May and Kauai was unusually warm. We are in the process of getting a solar power driven second AC for the living room to solve this problem.

We are in the process of getting a solar power driven second AC for the living room to solve this problem.

"We invited our two sons, our daughter-in-law, and our grandson to join us for two weeks in Kauai. My wife and I had previously spent ten nights at the nearby Grand Hyatt, but we knew we would need a house to accommodate the entire family. I tend to over-research our vacations, and I spent hours before making contact with the owners of the Bird of Paradise home. Ning was great about answering all of my questions, especially assuring me that the pool was child-proofed because my wife was insistent that we shouldn't stay at a home with a pool. The pool was secure as advertised, and our 22 month old pretty much lived in it - when he wasn't spending time at the beaches. My only disappointment was that the ocean views are fairly limited, but I soon forgot about it because the mountain views are truly spectacular. You need to trust me on this because I can spend hours just looking at the ocean, but when you witness the 180 degree view of the mountains from the living room area, the deck, and the bungalow, you will be mesmerized. Also, the beaches are a 5-10 minute walk away. As great as the house is, my favorite part of the property is the deck. I woke up every morning ahead of the others and spent an hour or so on the deck enjoying the views with my coffee (you can definitely hear the ocean - especially in the morning before the neighborhood comes to life). There is outdoor furniture all over the property, and we especially enjoyed the four-seat and six-seat tables for outdoor meals. We had some great dinners at nearby restaurants, but we also barbecued fish several times after stops at Koloa Fish Market. My recommendation is that you stop in there between 10:00 and 11:00 and order whatever they suggest is freshest and best for that particular day. They will divide your order into servings, and recommend the appropriate fish marinade and sauce. We also patronized the local wine shop and food markets, but the (relatively) new Safeway in Lihue is 20 minutes away and made us feel like we were at home. I could go on and on about the home, but there are many other reviews that duplicate what I would say. I will mention that Evan is a great resource regarding the home and the island. Also, the owners were on the island during our vacation, so we also met them. One of the burners was out on the range, and they showed up the next day with Evan to fix it. It is really clear that they want you to enjoy your stay. We definitely did!" - Erik Z., Napa, California, USA, 05/09/2017 (VRBO Review)

"Our family absolutely loved staying in your Bird of Paradise home. It was a welcome sight to our weary traveller's eyes when we saw the beautiful house up on the hill with glowing lights waiting for us. It was the right location and the size accommodated all very well. We enjoyed the swimming pool each and every day. Having the pool to use with our little ones was a joy for all of us. Evan (property manager) was a great help to us. He was so informative and knowledgeable about the island. We took his advice and explored many places. We also ate at a few recommended restaurants/food trucks. Evan also answered our text messages promptly and even dropped off umbrellas, water wings and fish identification books. He is a very kind, helpful and generous man. We all fell in love with Kauai and it is our favorite island! Not one of us was ready to come home. We hope to make this an annual or biennial family trip. We look forward to staying at your homes again." - Julie T., Alberta, Canada, 03/22/2017 (VRBO Review)

"The Bird of Paradise home was perfect for our family of nine; six adults, two toddlers and one infant. It was a welcome sight to our weary traveller's eyes when we saw the beautiful home up on the hill with glowing lights waiting for us. The view from the house was stunning. We enjoyed using the heated swimming pool everyday. It was a perfect location for us with an easy 5 min. walk to Poipu Beach and Shipwreck Beach. Koala Town was just a 5 min. drive and the North Shore was just an hour and a half away. The property manager was informative and knowledgable about the island. He always answered our questions promptly and helped us when we needed it. The ability to contact the concierge to have our first breakfast and lunch groceries in place was wonderful. She also helped arranged the diving excursions which was greatly appreciated. Our family fell in love with Kauai. We plan to return again and we will absolutely stay at one of Ning Gulari's homes.

"The home was perfect! I am a travel agent and have done my fair share of touring resorts and looking for an upside and/or downside to resort vacationing. With that said, we did drive by the house twice since we didn't see the house number from the road and it has a shared driveway entrance with the house next door. BUT once we got there, it exceeded my expectations. First and foremost it was very clean and well stocked of necessities for any beach activity including beach towels, water shoes, beach chairs and snorkel gear to name a few. The house is well positioned for a short walk to any of the 3 beaches. The bedrooms were very spacious with comfortable beds (except the twins.....they might have waterproof mattress pads since it appears to be a kids room) and flat screen TV's in all. The kitchen had all the necessities for cooking/dining but THE VIEW from the living area!!!! My gosh! It is grand! The pool was well maintained and we used it often. I cannot say enough about the house and the owner. My emails and questions were answered promptly and my security deposited refunded back to me as I sat on my flight home. I highly recommend this property. My family (all adults at this point) had an amazing visit to Kauai while staying at The Bird of Paradise Home and we are looking forward to a return trip. The added bonus is the house concierge and house manager. The concierge pre booked our tours and did my grocery shopping prior to our arrival. Yes, there is a fee attached to the shopping but considering I didn't want to arrive after a long flight , pick up the car rental, drive 30 minutes to unpack our luggage and then go back to Safeway to do my hour worth of grocery shopping. This was vacation and I wanted to start it as soon as my feet it the ground. The house manager came our first night and gave us some valuable touring information that we utilized the very next day. You can't go wrong with this property." - Anonymous, Whitehall, PA, 02/10/2017 (VRBO Review)

"Our family has just had its best vacation ever, thanks in large part to our positive experience with the owner, and of course the home itself. The home was ideally situated to the many activities we pursued: snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking, watching the sunrise from the cliffs over Shipwreck Beach, and dining at nearby fabulous restaurants. Most importantly your home provided us with the opportunity to be together as a family. So much better than being in a hotel! This house is so well laid out, extremely well equipped, and beautifully decorated. I cannot think of a thing we lacked. The owner made the whole rental process so easy by being so communicative with us from the very beginning. I highly recommend this property to everyone.

"My husband and I wanted to spend a week in Kauai with our daughter and her family - party of 8. This home was perfect in every way. We had our own bungalow separate from the rest of the family. The home is walking distance to gorgeous beaches and great restaurants. The views are spectacular and all the little details (soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc.) were plentiful. We simply walked in and lived in Kauai for a week. We highly recommend this home and this location for a perfect Kauai vacation!

"Where to begin? First, you WILL want to rent this incredible property, so be sure to get your dates in soon as it books fast. We almost missed out on the vacation of a lifetime, but luckily were able to secure this home for 3 families (6 adults, 3 kids). Each family had a room, bathroom, and privacy. The home owner, Ning, was always quick to respond and incredibly professional. Ning responded to all my inquiries and questions and was incredibly friendly throughout the initial process. Once in Kauai we pulled up to this amazing home, mouths agape and couldn't believe it was all ours! The location is AMAZING, truly 5 minutes to everything, best beaches, amazing eateries, zip-lining, snorkeling, ATVing, biking, etc. The kitchen is truly stocked with everything you could need and more, we made fruit smoothies every morning with the blender and vitamix! Having a private pool with the 3 kids truly made the trip, the little guys were not going to be able to safely enjoy the ocean water, but we sure got a lot of use out of the pool, 3 times a day use usually! Evan, the on site house manager, was incredible, he was on top of everything. The grill was giving low flame, we woke up to a NEW grill the next day, literally a new grill less than 12 hours after we asked. Evan was so helpful and communicative, anything we needed, any questions we had, he was knowledgeable, personable, and incredibly professional.

"Bottom line: we will return! This was the perfect vacation home for our 3 families for a week (one couple in upstairs master, one couple + 2 kids took the two downstairs rooms, one couple + toddler in pack-n-play took the bungalow). Very spacious so we didn't feel that we were on top of each other. Nicely decorated, yet toddler-friendly. Kitchen was stocked with all the necessities, and more. The pool was a very nice alternative to walking to the ocean, especially with young, active, impatient kids (it was also a nice temperature). A plethora of pool and beach toys (EVERYTHING you'd want). An easy walk to two beaches. Close driving proximity to excellent restaurants. The adults could happily spend the day on the lanai in the comfortable lounge chairs, napping, reading, or just taking in the beautiful view of the mountains. Seemed to be a very quiet and safe neighborhood. The double washers and dryers were nice during our stay. The owner and manager were very accommodating and communicative from the time we booked the house all the way through our stay.

It was just perfect for our needs, and we so appreciated all the extra things included with the house like boogie boards, beach chairs and towels and such a well stocked kitchen. Our grandchildren and children really enjoyed the pool. Evan the manager, was very attentive and helpful. The Bird of Paradise house is in a perfect location and we thoroughly enjoyed the panoramic view! We had a lovely 40th anniversary dinner at the Beach House and even had photographs taken of our whole family at Shipwreck Beach. This vacation (although it went by too fast) will be treasured memories, and this wonderful house just added to the joy. For most of our 2 weeks we had 6 adults and 3 children. Two other family members joined us for 5 nights. It completely worked. We ate out on the lanai almost every night. Renting it, sight unseen was a little scary, but all was better than we anticipated. We loved Even's suggestions and ate at The Brick Oven Pizza (some of the best pizza ever), Verde's, and Keoke's Paraside. The Koloa Fish Market has wonderful fresh fish, and they'll tell you how to cook the different kinds of fish. We really enjoyed the tubing adventure along the old sugar plantation irrigation system. My daughter and her family did the Smith Family Luau on the Wailua River and said it was very good. We chartered a boat for a stunning Napali Coast adventure. Since all our family was at the Bird of Paradise House, we hired a photographer to take family photos on Shipwreck Beach at sunset. The beaches on Kauai are fabulous - Poipu (within a short walk from the house), Ke'e Beach and Tunnels were some really thoroughly enjoyed. Great snorkeling. I highly recommend staying at the Bird of Paradise House. The owners and the manager are wonderful to deal with - very friendly and helpful. We are hoping to go back some day!

"This was the perfect home for our Kauai vacation! The layout allowed each family to have their own space (our party included me, my older son and his wife who stayed in the guest house, and my younger son and his wife and three kids, 3, 5, and 11, who stayed in the bedrooms on the lower level). We spent many hours in the great pool at the home and at nearby Poipu Beach. The home was spacious, well-equipped, and had lots of beach supplies for us to use. It was well-maintained and we were appreciative of home manager Evan who was there to greet us and make us feel welcome. While we were there we enjoyed a helicopter ride (my first!), one of the island luaus, and some of the adults even spent time at the nearby Hyatt at the spa. We spent many hours on the deck catching up on each other's lives - such a wonderful space! The week surpassed all of my expectations and I highly recommend this home!" - Linda P., 06/28/2015 (VRBO Review)

"This was the perfect home for our Kauai vacation! The layout allowed each family to have their own space (our party included me, my older son and his wife who stayed in the guest house, and my younger son and his wife and three kids, 3, 5, and 11, who stayed in the bedrooms on the lower level). We spent many hours in the great pool at the home and at nearby Poipu Beach. The home was spacious, well-equipped, and had lots of beach supplies for us to use. It was well-maintained and we were appreciative of home manager Evan who was there to greet us and make us feel welcome.

"This is our second stay at the Bird of Paradise Home on Kauai. Once again, we were extremely pleased with everything about the home. The location is excellent - walking distance to the beaches. The large living area, including the kitchen and dining area easily accommodated the eight members of our group. We loved the large deck, where we ate nearly all of our meals. The kitchen was very well equipped. The house was clean and well maintained. We appreciated the beach chairs, snorkel gear, towels, etc, which were all in ample supply. We had a wonderful time on Kauai at the Bird of Paradise home." - Pyke J., 06/16/2015 (VRBO Review)

"Our family of 8 stayed at Birds of Paradise from 5/9/15-5/16/15. Our group consisted of 3 young children (4 1/2, 4 1/2 and 7 1/2), 3 40-something adults and grandparents in their mid-60s. The location of the home was ideal. We were a short walk away from the Hyatt & attended the luau there one evening. We also walked to Poipu beach, Shipwreck beach, and to the hiking trails along the lithified cliffs. The walking paths that meander through the surrounding area were only a few houses away from Birds of Paradise. When I was originally looking for houses, I thought we'd prefer to be beachfront, but we really liked the views of the mountains and ocean from Birds of Paradise and we especially liked watching the green parrots descend every evening on the palm trees directly across from the house. I understand that people make reservations at certain restaurants to experience the green parrots, but we were able to watch them nightly from the lanai. The heated pool was the perfect place for our kids to play after a morning of exploration. The water was around 90 degrees, depth roughly 3 feet and there were plenty of pool toys at the house. My parents (the grandparents) stayed in the separate suite. The separate entrance, private bath and mini fridge / coffee maker in their room worked really well for them and allowed them to have privacy and maintain different hours than the rest of us (granddad wakes up really, really early :)) The property manager, Evan, was helpful with regulating the pool temperature, giving local beach and restaurant recommendations and checking in to make sure we were well taken care of. Birds of Paradise was the perfect base for us to explore the Waimea Canyon, Napili Coast (via Catamaran and hiking) and the area surrounding Poipu. We'd stay at the house again in a heartbeat." - Amy N., 05/22/2015 (VRBO Review)

"We had 3 couples stay at the Bird's of Paradise house in Poipu, Kauai for a week. We all had a wonderful time. The owners were very informative and helpful in the time leading up to our stay. The manager was also very helpful while we were there. The house is kept in excellent condition. We bought food at Costco and other local grocery stores to save money. The house was well equipped with dishes and several condiments/spices that we needed. That was very helpful! Being able to use the grill was nice, too. Everything that was described about the house and it's amenities was accurate including MANY more beach things than described such as beach chairs, snorkel equipment, beach toys, boogie boards etc. We didn't have children there but noticed many things that would be helpful like high chairs, pack and plays, games, movies, etc. There were even things supplied for laundry and showering that we hadn't expected. We really appreciated having such nice paved walking paths and being within walking distance to beaches, restaurants and a short drive to the grocery store and many points of interest. During our stay, we went for many walks around town, to the beaches and the beautiful grounds of the Grand Hyatt near the ocean. We ate at Brennecke's beachfront restaurant to watch the sunset. Near town to the west we went to the Spouting horn blowhole and shopped at the vendor booths (got some nice jewelry) and and east of town took a bumpy dirt road to Gillin's beach then walked to Makauwahi cave (very cool) and the lithified cliffs at Kamala point (VERY beautiful!!!). A few of us took a helicopter tour, scuba dived and kayaked the Wailua river. Some of us drove up to the north shore and went to Kilauea lighthouse, Ke'e beach, stopped in Hanalei and had some shave ice. A few of us drove up to the Waimea canyon (awesome) and took the long dirt road to Polihale State Park (beautiful secluded beach). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kauai staying in the Bird's of Paradise house in Poipu. A very good decision!" - Jean C., 03/21/2015 (VRBO Review)

The manager of the home could not have been nicer or more helpful. The place was clean and had everything we needed (plus, more). The rooms and beds were nice and well kept. Location was great because it was so close to two beaches. I have told so many people about how, this house, made our trip. I would recommend this home for everyone! It felt like a home away from home. Thank You!!! We will be back." - justin, Sea,WA, 02/20/2015 (VRBO Review)

"Our family of seven (including two children under 5 years of age) recently spent two weeks at Bird of Paradise under the guise of 'celebrating mom's 75th birthday.'. We absolutely had a wonderful time -- the house was perfect for our needs: plenty of space, large lanais with amazing views, every kind of beach gear we could need, and of course the swimming pool which was perfect for keeping a 4 1/2 year old occupied for hours. The house is situated well within the Poipu township -- just a 2 minute drive to Poipu/Brenneke's beach, easy walking distance to the association pool and tennis courts, easy drive to all local amenities. Two farmers markets a week in Poipu/Koloaa made it so easy never to leave the general vicinity. We look forward to staying again." - Kathy G., Mill Valley, Ca, 08/15/2014 (VRBO Review)

"We has a wonderful time staying in this great house. It has an amazing layout. So much interior space. The house was clean and equipped with everything we needed. An unexpected surprise was all the pool toys, life jackets, snorkel gear and beach toys. The pool was the highlight for the kids. It was the perfect size and depth. Plus, it was fully fenced and we found a padlock to lock the gate for further piece of mind. Originally, when looking for a house to rent, I didn't want a pool for the safety factor. The set up at this house was absolutely perfect and worry free. The deck space and views are gorgeous! The deck is huge! We all felt that the real view was far better than even the pretty online photos. The house sits up high so you can overlook the mountains and see a bit of ocean. The two outside dining tables really came in handy. If it was windy, the table under the covered patio was perfect and if we wanted more sun we sat at the other table. The location of this property can't be beat. Having never been to Kauai we didn't really know where location-wise to be. This house is it!! Poipu beach is so close. An easy walk through a nice green belt. The Hyatt is in the other direction through another green belt. We walked there daily to enjoy a morning coffee on their beautiful lanai or a happy hour glass of wine. The grocery store was so close as well. The owners were great to deal with. Very organized and gave us plenty of information/maps/directions about the island. I absolutely recommend this house and hope to go back back there soon! It played a major role in making our trip so amazing." - Kelly M., 04/27/2014 (VRBO Review)

"We just returned from a 6 night stay. The pictures shown in the gallery are representative of the property (except that the carpet in living room was recently replaced with wood flooring - a bonus). The kitchen was well stocked with cooking hardware, the pantry had reasonable offerings (and we left some behind for the next person as well). The cleaning supplies (dishwasher and laundry) were well stocked as well. There are two washer and dryers in the garage, very helpful. The property manager called the day after we arrived and was very helpful. The pool is more of a dipping pool for cooling down in the afternoon, and was perfect for our kids. We timed our walk to the beach from the house and it was 10:30 each way. No need to drive to a parking lot to access the beach." - Johnny S., 03/23/2014 (VRBO Review)

"The tile floor could use some throw rugs. Our kids had some pretty bad slips after they got out of the pool. also the community pool was frigid ...I would definitely suggest heating it." - Adam B., 02/28/2014 (VRBO Review)

I assume you meant the Poipu Kai community pool. I am so sorry to hear that your kids had a bad slips there. This is the reason why we have our heated private pool at the Bird of Paradise home. This pool is warm, clean, safe and right here at the Bird of Paradise home. I already sent a suggestion to the Poipu Kai community pool committee to add more rugs on the tiles.

"Property was well stocked, clean and well maintained, description of layout and property was accurate except pool should be mentioned as small sized. The onsite property manager was exceptional and went out of his way to provide help. Property had everything we could have wanted and more. Would highly recommend it and hope to stay there next year" - jeff s., 02/28/2014 (VRBO Review)

"We spent 7 nights in the Bird of Paradise for our 20th wedding anniversary and we could have spent 7 more! There were 5 in our party and everyone had plenty of room to stretch out and lots privacy. The location was perfect and most things were within walking distance. We walked to Shipwreck Beach one morning and got a great view of the sunrise. The view of the mountains from the living room and lanai were great. The kitchen was well stocked and we used the gas grill one night and ate outside on the great lanai which is a nice addition to the home. The home was clean and well decorated in Hawaii motif. We enjoyed the air conditioning and the washer and dryer very much. It was nice to come home and not have tons of laundry to do. We also enjoyed the pool even though we didn’t get to use it as much as we would have liked. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us and if we ever get back to Kauai we would be thrilled to stay there again." - Eileen G., Texas, 10/12/2013 (VRBO Review)

"This fantastic home was perfect for our family of four plus grandparents. (There was room for more, even.) The kitchen was the best equipped of any vacation rental we've ever stayed at. There was plenty of seating on the lanai, by the pool, in the living room so that you could relax where you wanted without needing to move furniture. The kids loved jumping in the pool right after breakfast while the grownups relaxed. The walk to Poipu Beach was short and pretty- our 6yo never complained once. There were plenty of buggy boards and snorkel gear so our kids could try them out without a big investment from us. The property manager came by and introduced himself, although we never needed to call him. Everything was clean. They request no shoes in the house to keep the floors wonderful, so bring slippers or house shoes if you'd want them. We loved the lu'au on the beach at the Sheraton. Such a beautiful sunset. Poipu Beach was perfect for our 6 and 7 yos. There are two crescents of sand that meet in a spit going out to a rocky tidepool area. Our 6yo rode his boogy board back and forth over the sand spit, between the opposing (small) waves, without having to stand up. So fun! The snorkeling was super there, as was the tidepooling. We even saw a monk seal. One of our favorite meals was the ahi poke and sashimi platter from Costco. (Yes really. It was amazing, and far cheaper than a restaurant!!) Kalapaki Joe's was a huge disappointment, even though it's in walking distance. We did a small boat cruise and a helicopter ride, but both tour guides were duds. The views were terrific, however. We also drove up the Waimai canyon to the Pu'u o Kila Lookout. Amazing views. Really awe inspiring, plus we had an amazing rainbow on the way back. The owners have a ton of information online and it all reflects accurately the details of the house. There are not hiding anything in their photos; they really want you to see what there is, and what there is is great. You won't be disappointed." - Gisele E., Boston, MA, 10/05/2013 (VRBO Review)

"Our group (two families: two couples and 3 young teenage kids) had a wonderful time during our recent stay at Bird of Paradise home on Kauai. The house is beautiful, with great views and a wonderful large open living room/dining room/kitchen area that is attractive, comfortable, and relaxing. We really liked the three separate sleeping areas: two separate master suites for the adults, and a downstairs space with two rooms for the kids. The house has a great combination of a large central space for everyone to hang out, and private spaces for everyone as well. Other amenities we appreciated: - the two washers and driers, which made laundry very easy for our large group - assorted boogies boards, flippers, and snorkel gear - excellent large TV in the living room, plus TVs in all the bedrooms - pool and deck on the property, which the boys used a fair amount I would recommend this place whole-heartedly." - Gina B., 04/02/2013 (VRBO Review)

"The nine members of our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Bird of Paradise home in Po'ipu. We found the location very convenient (walking distance) to several area beaches, and to shopping for provisions at Costco in Lihu'e. The house itself was perfect for us. The large family room and dining rooms were great for gathering. The wrap around deck was awesome. We ate nearly every meal on the deck. The two younger children in our group really enjoyed the salt water pool, and when we weren't at the beach, they could be found in the pool. The sleeping accommodations were very comfortable. There was air conditioning in every room, although we never used it because of the nice cross winds. We found the two washers and driers particularly helpful because of the size of our group and the amount of time we spent at the beach. It was also nice that some beach toys were available for use (boogie boards, etc.). The kitchen was very well equipped and we lacked for nothing. We had a wonderful time on the island, exploring from Wiamea Canyon to Hanalei and many spots in between. We would definitely recommend the Bird of Paradise home to anyone interested in visiting Kauai, and hope to return ourselves some day." - Pyke J., 06/08/2012 (VRBO Review)

We loved the fact that we could walk (or run) to so many places including the beach, pool or a drink at the Grand Hyatt at sunset. The views from the deck will not be forgotten. I would highly recommend this home and we hope to back within a few years. Thank you! Kristine" - Kristine T., Bow, Washington, 03/03/2012 (VRBO Review)

"Perfect home for families wanting to relax and take in what Kauai has to offer. House had all amenities you possibly would need and more space to spread out in. Everyone could have privacy along with large open spaces for the entire group to get together and enjoy. Loved the fact you could see the ocean where the whales were playing and also look out at the mountains. Thanks for making our trip a success." - Jay W., Perth, Australia, 01/26/2012 (VRBO Review)

"Thanks Ning, We enjoyed our stay very much and loved the cabin-like feel the Bird of Paradise had. So glad there was a pool (nice little surprise) especially after spending some time with friends in the Orchid house. Having the pool was a nice addition even though we took in the boogie boards and diving. Loved being able to look out at the ocean and see the whales then pan our views over those beautiful mountains. BOP had such a lovely feel to it. Thanks for everything and thanks to Bill for helping us out (very nice fellow). Tammy " - Tammy W., Connolly, We, 01/20/2012 (VRconnection Guest Feedback)

"We had a lovely time in Kauai and the house was perfect for our family. We were able to spread out and found the kitchen well-stocked and able to cook delicious meals with a table big enough for our entire family. The view from the deck was so beautiful and we loved the small pool! We will carry the memories with us for a very long time." - Cindy and Fred, San Anselmo, California, 10/19/11(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Our family of 7 (6 adults and one teen) had a fabulous time at your beautiful home. The house was so spacious and comfortable for all of us and we never felt crowded. We even had a honeymooning couple in the seperate master guest room and they were in complete privacy when they wanted it. Your home lacked nothing in amenities, and we especially appreciated the brand new snorkelling equipment and boogie boards that were waiting for us. The guidebooks in the home were really helpful, and the location couldn't have been more convenient for walking to either Poipu Beach or Shipwreck Beach. We were able to easily walk to the Hyatt Luau (which was very good and we would highly recommend). Every morning we marvelled in the gorgeous sunrises while eating our breakfast on the lanai. We savored the views and tradewinds each afternoon while relaxing on the loungechairs on the lanai and shared stories from our day. The experience will leave a forever lasting memory. The best overall word to describe the house is comfortable, but it was so much more! " - Cindy Leggett, Cameron Park, CA, 09/19/11(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"We had a great time at the Bird of Paradise home in Kauai and just got back before the 4th of July. The boogie boards, beach chairs, swim fins, kids sand castle toys all made our visits over to Poipu Beach/Brennecke beach that much more enjoyable. It was also nice having two sets of washers/dryers and all of the other amenities of being at home. The location of the house was ideal being right at Poipu and allowed us to not have to travel far for shopping, swimming or dining." - Greg Green, Lake Forest Park, WA, 07/06/11(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

Cooking together as a family to save on the over priced food in Kauai was a wonderful memory. This couldn't have been any better.

"Aloha Ning! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We loved our 5 night stay at the Bird of Paradise home and only wish that we had allowed more time on Kauai at the end of our month long Hawaiian vacation. Hopefully we will be able to come back soon and stay longer! When we vacation we always try to stay in a rental home rather than a hotel. Your home was so well prepared for visitors and it was a real treat to find the kitchen so completely stocked with everything that one could need. The comments in the initial information rec'd said that the kitchen and bathrooms would have "start up supplies". We were expecting sample sizes of everything but were so pleased to find ample full sized supplies. For once we did not have to go and spend extra money on dishwasher detergent, soap, cooking supplies etc., only to leave them behind when vacating. What a time and money-saver. Many thanks. We drove our rental car around the island and found it very easy to navigate. One day we took the Island Helicopter waterfall tour. It was out of this world - not only was there an around the island tour, but Island Heli is the only firm that has permission to actually land at the "Jurassic" Falls. This was outstanding. We also went to the Zip n' Dip at Princeville. So much fun, plus there was about 45 mins spent swimming at a small waterfall. A nice lunch was also provided. Our favourite thing to do, and we did it twice, was to drive to Wailua Falls and hike down to the waterfall. We had amazing swims down there and were the only people in the water. Absolutely magical. We can't wait to return to Kauai and when we do we'll definitely be staying at the Bird of Paradise home!!" - Carolyn Gebbie, Victoria, British Columbia, 10/25/10(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"We had a wonderful stay at the Bird of Paradise home at the end of September.

"The Bird of Paradise home was everything advertised and more! It is a lovely home in a perfect location-close to both Poipu Beach and Shipwreck Beach. The comfort and special amenities of the house were perfect for our family of 7 to cook, visit and relax together. It was also a perfect location for exploring the rest of the beautiful island of Kauai. Ning, the owner, is very friendly and easy to deal with. She has an informative website, sent regular e-mails and left very thorough notes about the house, Poipu Beach as well as adventures around the island. I would definitely recommend Bird of Paradise for a perfect family vacation!" - Anne Merritt, Ojai, CA, 08/06/10(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"I love Kauai, it's my favorite place to relax and always look forward to returning. The house was comfortable and close to everything we needed! Enjoyed Puka Dog, Bubba's burgers, Lappert's icecream, Roy's and Keoki's (get the hula pie!) Close to Poipu beach and my favorite, Brennecke's because of the waves. Spouting horn wasn't far either and good shopping with the vendors there...Kola town was great too...we did most of our shopping at Walmart right by the airport (there is a costco too) because it was cheaper but the supermarket in Koloa town (big save I think) was good as well and not too far. The house had beach chairs, beach towels, and buggie boards which was really nice. I also liked that you could sit on the deck and see the mountins one way and the water the other. The living room furniture was so comfy as well as the beds! Good find...Thanks for a great 12 days!" - Monica Roik, Keller, TX, 07/24/10(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"We arrived late and it was pouring rain. We had sandwiches and went to bed. The next day I awoke about 5:30 and ran out to the front window to see the view. I saw my daughter in law with my granddaughter inthe front yard looking at all the beautiful flowers. What an amazing view!! We couldn't have picked a more appropriate dwelling. Thank you so much for providing a beautiful house with such an amazing view. I will tell all my friends about the lovely "Bird of Paradise" HOME. MAHALO!!!! Anna & Al Carlson" - Al and Anna Carlson, Walla Walla, Washington, 10/28/09(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"This was an amazing vacation from the very start. Even before we left I was able to speak with Ning about the home and the area. She had some great suggestions about different activities and restaurants. The home was fantastic. It was way more room than we needed. The highlight of the home for us was the wrap-around lanai. I was nice to just sit outside and relax in the bright sun and refreshing trade winds. The amenities in the home were also outstanding. We especially enjoyed all the beach gear and the wireless internet service, both of which we were not expecting. The location was perfect. It was a short 5 min walk to Shipwreck Beach and the Hyatt hotel. The pool and tennis courts that are a part of the resort community were also very close. Poipu Beach is also within walking distance, but a bit further (we often took the rental car there). There are also many restaurants in the area. Renting a car in Kauai is a must if you want to see the whole island, and the Bird of Paradise home was a perfect "home base" for our vacation. It was close to many of the thing we wanted to see and do and the Poipu area was just beautiful. Kauai Must Do: - Helicopter tour of the island. - Day at Poipu Beach. - Drive up to Waimea Cannon. - Hike the first 2 miles of the Kalalau Trail. (this can be strenuous) This was by far the best vacation we have taken. Kauai, Poipu, and the Bird of Paradise home offer everything from stunningly beautiful adventures to serene relaxation. Whatever your ideal vacation is you will find it here. Thank you Ning for a trip we will never forget!" - Philip O'Niel, Ann Arbor, MI, 09/20/09(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Aloha Ning, Thank you for sharing your lovely home on our recent family vacation. We were a group of 8 adults and 3 children ages 1, 2, and 4. We appreciated the items you provided to accommodate our young children. Your home exceeded our expectations. The views were spectacular. We were so comfortable in your very spacious home. Everything we needed for our week long stay was provided. Upon returning to Kauai we would not hesitate to stay in your home again. Mahalo Ning.

"Aloha Ning, We have just returned home from 2 glorious weeks at your Bird of Paradise home!! We have traveled extensively, and I can truly say we have not enjoyed a trip as much as this one!! Your house is everything the internet says it is and more. We just want you to know how much we appreciated things like: paper towels, TP, Hawaiian lotions, laundry detergent, beach towels, snorkel gear, quality towels and sheets, 2 washers and dryers, a well-equipped kitchen, ironing board, hair dryers, the library for small, medium and old children as well. You have done a wonderful job to make your home paradise!! Our daughter's wedding was perfect, and we were able to entertain 25 friends for a pre-wedding bar b que, with room for all. Bill and Kay are super nice people and were so helpful with any questions we had. Thank you so much again, we had a GREAT 2 weeks!!

"Hi Ning, Our family had a wonderful time on Kauai, much of that due to the wonderful Bird of Paradise home.

"Beautiful Bird of Paradise! We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Kauai. We found "Bird of Paradise" by going to vacation home rentals available in Poipu and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The house is beautiful. Well stocked, complete with beach towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards and beach chairs. The laundry room was great for the 8 of us as it is equipped with 2 washers and 2 dryers. The kitchen was well equipped as well, complete with lots of pots and pans, dishes, cutlery and even a waffle iron. (makes excellent waffles :) The bedrooms were cozy, lots of closet space. The suite away from the main house was great! My daughter and grandaughter stayed there and they had there own entrance, frige,microwave and t.v. Nice and private for earlier bedtimes. Ning Gulari was awesome at communicating months before our trip. She always returned e-mails promptly. We were also happy with our security deposit refund. Received it via pay-pal before our bags were unpacked. The home is spacious, clean and is in an excellent neighbourhood. Close to beaches, pool and even a small shopping mall. We treated it like we would our own home and would not hesitate to recommend it anyone. For anyone lucky enough to be heading to Kauai with a larger group this is a great home to stay in.

"This was the first time staying at the Bird of Paradise home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It was very roomy, comfortable and clean. Although the whether could have been much better, it didn't affect our stay on Kauai other than we couldn't go out in the ocean or take our sunset cruise. It was very windy and rained almost all day every day we had a very memorable vacation." - The Ray and Donald's, Arcadia, California, 04/23/09(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Ning, Thank you very much for making our Kauai Vacation truly special. Your home was perfect for our family of ten ranging from 2 1/2 months to 85. We had plenty of room around your dinning room table, plus your living room area provided many different places to sit and enjoy the amazing view. The guys enjoyed your new barbecue, and there were enough dishes and cups for our big group. It was great having all the beach chairs, ice chest, & beach equitment to use when we went down to the beautiful beaches near by. Plus it was nice have lots of towels and two washers & dryers in the garage." - Diana, Chico, Ca, 01/21/09(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Great place for the price, size, and location. We had a great family vacation at this home. It was spacious and the kitchen had all the utensils to make it functional for kids meals and family dinners. It is a longer walk to the beach than we thought. We spent alot of time watching the sunrise and sunset on the patio. The house was clean and the beds were made. The lower basement rooms are the best place for the kids. The master suites are large enough for play pen by the bedside. We needed the water heater reset for some reason, and the resort maintenance responded quickly. The price was affordable for our large family to vacation at Kauai together. A few minor nuisances was the bird droppings on the patio rails and rusted beach chairs. The movie selection was sparse so bring your own." - HAC109663, Phoenix, AZ, 12/08/2008 (VRBO Review)

Your home was soooo comfortable. There were 7 of us and I never felt like we were in eachother's way. We found several good restaurant's to eat at but found that we cooked more than we expected because it was fun to just be at the house. Those are great beach chairs and easy to carry. I have had several friends ask me to bring them pictures so they could have it for furture references for family gatherings.

Thank you too for the postcard that I received in England, it was really thoughtful of you! I hope you and your family had a really great Christmas vacation! Mahalo once again!

"Dear Ning, We had a fabulous time in your beautiful home! The place was spic-and-span clean when we arrived and we easily found all that we needed, including which light switches worked which lights, all kitchen items, outdoor stuff, and how to get around the area. Hopefully, we will return to Kauai and I can assure you that if so, we will contact you. Thank you again for letting us stay in your gorgeous home!

"The weather was rainy and windy, but our stay at Bird of Paradise was our best visit to Kaua'i yet. The house is spacious and Ning is a great landlord. She left so many nice things for us. It was great to have the bungalow for one set of our adult children and the other slept downstairs. We all had togetherness and then privacy as well. The laundry room in the garage is very convenient and the living room is great for hanging out. We watched a full day of bowl games on 1/1/08 and we didn't mind the weather because the room was so comfortable for TV, puzzles and games. You won't find a nicer house or one with a nicer landlord." - Anonymous, Orinda CA, 01/08/2008 (VRBO Review)

"We're leaving behind an umbrella stroller, some sand toys in a little backpack and an air mattress. Hopefully some future renters (or you) can make some use of them in the future!

"Great place for the price, size, and location. We had a great family vacation at this home. It was spacious and the kitchen had all the utensils to make it functional for kids meals and family dinners. It is a longer walk to the beach than we thought. We spent alot of time watching the sunrise and sunset on the patio. The house was clean and the beds were made. The lower basement rooms are the best place for the kids. The master suites are large enough for play pen by the bedside. We needed the water heater reset for some reason, and the resort maintenance responded quickly. The price was affordable for our large family to vacation at Kauai together. A few minor nuisances was the bird droppings on the patio rails and rusted beach chairs. The movie selection was sparse so bring your own." - Trent, Phoenix, AZ, 10/09/07(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Our family had a great visit to Kauai and we enjoyed your beautiful home. We had a great time here! The house is well stocked for all of the activities we wanted to do.

"A year ago we started planning our vacation here in Kauai. Ten family members, 3 generations. Your house was perfect for us! What a lovely home. Our 7 days flew by, but we leave with such beautiful memories. The snorkeling beach by Brennecke's was our favorite. Shaved ice at Jo Jo's was the best! We had a Blast Tubing at Kauai's Back Country Adventure. Star gazing was another favorite. Best luau on the island - the Smith Family Luau. Sorry but Bubba's Burgers are over rated. Duanes Charbroiled Burgers in Anahola are the best! Sunrises & Sunsets are breath taking (Sister in law Mary especially loved the sunrises). Truley believe we found heaven on earth!

"Thank you for allowing all of us to share your beautiful home from early morning glorious sunrises, completed with rainbows to the breezy evening, it was all we could ask for. The location couldn't be more perfect, situated only 8 walking minutes to fantastic beaches, snorkeling and more.

"Hello Ning, We really enjoyed your place. Thanks for the use of the wave boards. We had some big waves to enjoy at Poipu one day and also over at Barking Sands. The kids kept us busy with horseback riding, ziplining & Rob took Lance on the ATV outing at the old Sugar Mill. My parents enjoyed the central location of your house. They drove in and out of Waimea daily I think! We noticed the island was a lot busier than during our last visit (and a lot more traffic along roads going in and out of Lihue). It was really quite dry - we never saw a raindrop or a rainbow during the whole three weeks; but this made it a lot easier for the kids to trek along the NaPali trails. Anyway, we certainly enjoyed ourselves and will contact you if we manage to free ourselves up from work to head back within the next year or two. Again, thanks for everything!

"I want to thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We had such a wonderful time, and appreciated so much your friendly hospitality. The late checkout was a big help to us and allowed us to take the grandchildren to the beach one more time before we left. The kitchen was so well supplied and it was great to have a washer and dryer available and not have to take home a suitcase full of dirty clothes. We hope that we can stay there again in the not-so-distant future.

"While the pictures and description of Bird of Paradise seemed very inviting and beautiful, I was not quite expecting the breathtaking views from the spacious and airy living room of this home. It was the perfect place to pray, meditate, gather one's thoughts and contemplate. The layout of the home flows and it is quite spacious, equipped with everthing a person or persons might need to be comfortable. There is really no need to go to any four star restaurants, as the dining accomodations also showcase a spectacular view of the mountains. The gourmet kitchen and a trip to the local farmer's market could inspire any number of culinary adventures. The cozy bungalow off to the right of the house is simply charming and provides the feeling of being in another time and place. It is conveniently located by the wonderful Poipu and Shipwreck beaches which beckoned me to rise early and experience indescribable sunrises (a mere 5-10 minute walk away). It was truly a gift to have the privacy and beauty of this magnificent home to ourselves. We left restored and rejuvenated! Thank you!" - Maria Perez, marlboro, new york, 04/20/2007 (VRBO Review)

"Our stay in Kauai was awesome and staying at the Bird of Paradise Home made it even better! The home was more than accomdating for our group of 8. The lovely home was extremely clean and stocked with all we needed. Having the local soaps & lotions was a nice touch! Our 19 year olds & guys liked the basket of used sunscreens..We only brought 30+ and they wanted 15-. The kitchen had enough pots & pans to handle cooking for our big eaters. We made two trips to Cost Co! It did take us a day to locate the correct swimming pool and the 19 year olds (boys) were told they could not swim at the Hyatt :). They discovered the locals hang out at the beach in front of the Sheraton so of course they forgot all about the Hyatt! The location of the home was very convenient for walking to the beach, pool, shopping, restaurants and of course beautiful hiking trails. We highly recommend ATV riding with Kipu Ranch Adventures and Zip lining with Princeville Adventures. You have to eat at Dukes and Keokee's, plus you can't leave the Island without at least one Puka Dog. The Lu'au at the Hyatt was fantastic. And last but not least, I think between all of us we tried every flavor and combination of Shaved Ice (get the ice cream on the bottom). All of us want to come back!

The Play and Pac was the perfect little bed for our 15 month old granddaughter and the king size bed worked well for their whole family when the little ones needed to be near mom and dad.

The weather cooperated with only 1 or two little showers during the day that passed very quickly. I apologize for not e-mailing you immediately on our return but the bustle of the holidays was upon us on our return. Again, we cannot have imagined a nicer vacation spot for our whole family.

"Aloha Ning! What a fabulous time we had in your home for our 10 day family vacation. We had a total of 9 people which included 5 adults and 4 children ages 13, 11 1/2, almost 5 and a 3 year old. There was plenty of room and no one felt like we were crammed at all. Kitchen had all the dishes, pot and pans that we needed and more! Could have used a few more dish towels though but I just ran to KMart and bought a couple and left them there for others! Living room was full of room and even had some movies to choose from. We had brought some from home and accidentally left one there Ice Age the Meltdown so enjoy if you ever rent this place and had children and need a kid movie! Views from around the house was so refreshing and hearing the birds in the am was so much fun! There is basically nothing bad to say about this home. Great location, plenty of room and nice to have access to beach chairs, mat, etc. etc. The extra room made it feel like a whole other apartment so everyone had ample room and room to spare. We definately would rate this home a 10 plus, and will recommend it to friends and would use it again if the opportunity came up. Thanks again Ning for everything you have a wonderful home and I hope all renters keep it that way and enjoy it has much as our family did.

"You have such a lovely home & we loved staying at your house. It was comfortable the entire time, lovely view, and close distant to good restaurants and beaches. We came during a great week -most of the time it was sunny -but even though it rained sometimes -we still had a great time in your wonderful home. It felt like home. Great restaurants were - the broiler, and good beaches - walking distance. This house was a great rental. Mahalo," - The Tarlton Family, Los Altos, CA, 11/23/06(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Aloha dear Ning, I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful our stay is here at your home. We have been incredibly lucky with the weather....and everything else involved with our trip so far. I want to especially thank you for having Kay and Bill close by. They are helpful and warm and inviting and have patience for any and all of our questions and requests.....we appreciate them believe me. Each morning I awaken and sit here and soak in your view.....wanting to remember it forever. You are so fortunate to have this property.....and somehow I know you know that. I hope all is well with you and your family. This truly has been the one of those memories that will last a lifetime.

"My family relished the time spent together in Kauai and your spacious home set the tone for a very relaxing and enjoyable time. My mother did well and since you asked about how the configuration of the house worked for her, I will say that the fact that you had a full hand rail for the stairs and a half-bath on the living room level made it much easier and safer for her. It was especially nice that there were many "conversation areas" in the living room area where one could read, check their email, or doze off even and not feel like you were away from the group. We will be happy to recommend your home to people who will be vacationing in Kauai. It was very conveniently located; I loved the lanai; and you had a surplus of drinking glasses for our thirsty group of seven (my family still can't keep track of their own glass and always look for a clean one!). We appreciated the well stocked kitchen and BBQ that allowed us to have some meals there in a more relaxed and informal atmosphere.

We were thrilled to have use of the beach toys, mats, & chairs. Your decorations are lovely! " - Nancy M., Tulsa, OK, 10/19/2006 (VRconnection Guest Feedback)

"We had a wonderful family vacation here at Poipu, Kauai. The mountain view was the most beautiful I have experienced. Your lovely home is positioned perfectly to take advantage of the panoramic views. Thank you for sharing it with flat landers like us from Oklahoma!" - The Mackeys, Tulsa, OK, 10/19/06(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"A Perfect vacation home, Private yet friendly, view to die for, Cool, Classy, Comfortable. Will be back on our visit to Kauai. Regarding comments on our stay, we must commend your on-site managers for their excellent support and service regarding the refrigerator replacement as well as their recommendations during our stay. My wife and sister both entered positive remarks and reflections in your guestbook should be of interest. Thanks again. " - Ben V., Prescott, AZ, 10/05/2006 (VRconnection Guest Feedback)

"As the beloved sister of Ben Valentine, I was so fortunate to join them for this fabulous trip. I loved the delightful cottage room with breezes, birds chirping, fronds waving, and darling decor. Love the location of this private home. The paths go to the pool and the beach by Brennecke's, & the other way to the Grand Hyatt, Shipwreck beach & good golfing. Something for everyone's taste is nearby. Thank you for opening your home to us." - Connie Terry, Monterey, CA, 10/05/06(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Aloha Ning, Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time in your home. It was as comfortable as our own home. We normally go out to eat at least one meal a day but the kitchen allowed my brother-in-law(a gourmet cook), to keep us well fed all the time. Golf was fantastic! Poipu bay offers multiple play packages that are quite reasonable so we played six times. The local beaches were very nice. We toured the entire island and snorkeled at a few spots in Princeville that were great! We will definitely contact you in the future to stay in beautiful Poipu Bay.

"The home exceeded our expectations. In addition to having great sleeping, bathing, and cooking facilities, there was plenty of room for all (5 adults) to have adequate space and privacy. Wonderful views from the living room and lanai. Walking distance to great beaches and very good dining (Casa de Amici and Poipu Beach Broiler). We hope to return." - Gary Tyrrell, Half Moon Bay, CA, 09/11/06(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"What a beautiful house! We loved the spectacular view and location that was close to everything. The house is about equal distance to two of the best beaches on the South shore and made for an enjoyable walk. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. We had more than enough room for a party of seven and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We would definitely recommend and hope to return some day. Thanks!!!!" - The Schumachers, Laguna Niguel, CA, 08/24/06(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Aloha- Love the house- its great for a party of 8. Great location & love where the beaches are! Great walk to the beaches. Love the scenery. Great pool and access! The beaches are great with very large waves. We had a fantastic time in Kauai. Loved the house and thanks for renting it. Hope we return soon.

"Hi Ning, Congratulations on your beautiful vacation rental property! From the looks of the garage I know you must have worked very hard to get it ready for this summer. We enjoyed our stay very much, we were all very comfortable, and had a blast on every coastline of Kauai. What a special island.

"Thanks again for everything. We received our deposit back on Paypal. I would like to make some comments that you can share with other potential visitors. The house is beautiful and clean. We really enjoyed the location in the resort and proximity to the beach. Your communication could not be better and it really helped make a great experience. Anytime you would like a reference, please feel free to use me. BTW, I caught the boat record Ono from Captain Don's fishing trips. It was a 52 pounder. We brought some back to the Bird of Paradise home and had it on the new BBQ. Just like the fish, the house was a big wonderful experience. Thanks again." - Mike Kallbrier, Saratoga, CA, 06/14/06(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Ning, Here is a link to the pictures I took on our vacation. Quite a few are inside your house and on the deck. You are welcome to use any on your website if you want. Again, we all had a great time at your house. http://neatitems.com/personal/Kauai_2006.htm Thank you, Steve Hall NEATitems.com http://www.NEATitems.com " - Steve &., 909 Marina Vlg Pkwy #204,Al, 06/02/2006 (VRconnection Guest Feedback)

"Seven adults had a wonderfull vacation staying at the Bird of Paridise propery for two relaxing weeks. The home is both spacious and well designed with ample bathrooms and private bedrooms.Very nicely decorated and fully stocked with ample dishes,pots, towels and bedding to everyones satisfaction.There is no airconditiong but the tropical breeze and cross flow windows gave so much comfort that we slept with comforters over us.Each bedroom had two sets of sheets so that doing the laundry frequently is not required. Washer and dryer came in handy though and we made frequent use of them in the double garage which had a stock of beach chairs etc.We could not be any more comfortable and had parking for 4 cars in our own driveway.The self contained private bedroom off from the main house was a nice feature and a pleasure and we three couples rotated every 4 or 5 days so that all could have total privacy for a period of time.The view is breathtaking of the mountains and old volcano on one side and a glimps of the ocean on the other from the huge deck and a great barbecue and outdoor dinning area also. Flower gardens are spectacular also. We were very central to everything on the island here and close to several great beaches also.Just walk down to the end of the road to the ocean for a very pleasant experience and you can watch whales and sea turtles swimming. We were so glad that we rented in this area and Suite Paradise were so helpful also. We definatly would return to this home and to this location as soon as the opportunity presents itself again." - Garnet Anger, Niagara Falls, Ontario, 03/09/06(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)
