Panoramic Ocean Views Home With Spectacular Sunrises, Private Pool/Ac/Wireless

4 bed, 4.5 bath Poipu home sleeps 8




"The house was amazing. The 4 private bedrooms were all very nice and very comfortable. The living room and kitchen more than meet our needs. The pool was a great place to relax. The house is in a great location. Close to the beach and a lot of good food. I would recommend this property to anyone." - Jeffrey W., 08/06/2018 (inquire/book)

"The home was fully stocked with 2 washers and dryers. We would definitely stay here again and the owners are great to deal with and quick to respond!" - Elizabeth Y., 08/04/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo Liz! Please come back anytime whenever you want to stay on the south shore of Kauai.

"We had such a wonderful stay in your beautiful house. The large spaces, the fully stocked kitchen, the paper products and soap provisions, the great front porch with bbq, the beautiful pool, AND THE AMAZING VIEWS, made this the perfect home away from home for our family. We were pampered and comfortable. Thank you for working with me to make this an exceptional family vacation! Can't think of anything that would have made it better. Evan was very helpful and always accessible. He met us when we arrived and provided a thorough orientation to the house and to surrounding area; suggesting walking paths and good locations for surfing, snorkeling, swimming close to the house. He was always only a phone call away. Thank you, Pat and Jim and family" - Pat S., 07/19/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo nui loa, Pat. We are very glad to hear that you had a wonderful stay. Our goal are to make sure our guests have the happiest and most memorable time on their Kauai vacation.

"Our extended family of 9 stayed at Orchid House for 10 days in June and had a great time. The house has a beautiful view of the ocean - we really enjoyed watching the sunrise over the cliffs near Shipwreck Beach. The master suites are really spacious with huge closets. The downstairs bedroom near the laundry room is a bit smaller but has a nice sunroom attached to it where my daughter slept on a daybed. We cooked quite a bit in the house and enjoyed eating out on the front deck. The house is well stocked with anything you would need for the beach, and the two washers and two dryers were so helpful with a big group. Evan the house manager was very attentive. All in all a great stay!" - Marie M., 07/11/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo Marie! We are glad to hear about your stay. We will always make sure our Orchid house is a Perfect vacation home for our guests.

"Our family of ten, six adults and four children had a fabulous vacation at this property. There was so much room for everyone!! The pool was a hit especially with the kids. The home was beautiful and comfortable. The owners were awesome from beginning to the end. Evan the caretaker was very prompt and took great care of us. He gave us great information for the surrounding area. We would definitely stay there again!!" - Debby c., Lewiston idaho, 06/29/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo Debby! We are very glad that our Orchid house was part of your awesome Kauai vacation.

"Great Pool, views, everything we needed was there. Evan was available for all questions. Have stayed in other pretty rental houses, but find while they look nice they aren't well built, so you hear every step and peep. This house is sound and contains many quality appointments." - Rod M., 05/18/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo Rod, we are delighted that you enjoy your stay in our Orchid house.

"The Orchid House was the perfect place for our family of three adult children to stay for our vacation in Kauai! We all had a private room and bath and the two granddaughters had a lovely sleeping space in a room adjoining their Dad. The pool provided lots of fun when we were back at the house. The kitchen is well furnished. The manager was very welcoming and helpful. Everything was very clean. Great location. Loved everything about this house. Highly recommend staying here!" - Ann G., Plymouth, MN, 04/11/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo for your comments. We really appreciate it.

"We were pleased with the location of this beautiful home. Plenty of space for all six of us. Amazing views on the main floor. Kitchen was stocked well. Open floor plan living dining area was great for gathering. All four bedrooms offered plenty of privacy for each couple. Three of the bedrooms offered walk in closets that offered plenty of storage for clothing , luggage etc. Mattresses offered more of a soft vs firm feel. They provided many extras including beach chairs, towels, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, body wash in ample amounts. Hair dryers in each bathroom. The little things make your travel experience that much better and easier. Communication was excellent from the intial inquiry right up until we checked out. This location was perfect for getting to the entire island. There are many places to shop, beaches and great restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this wonderful home." - Tara P., Manchester, NH, 03/13/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo Tara! We really appreciate your comments regarding the communication, the home views, quality, and location. Our philosophy is the same as your comment, \

"The house was well equipped, very warm saltwater pool which was nice. However I would not recommend this house to anyone with a walker or wheelchair there are to many stairs and small edge drops throughout." - Joanne W., 03/02/2018 (inquire/book)

Thank you, Joanne! The Orchid house has great Ocean views! Well-equipped home and our saltwater pools are very nice and warm. The Orchid house has two stories. The living, look out, dining, kitchen, and lanai areas are on the second floor so that our guest can always see panoramic ocean views and great sunrises out from the ocean (even when you are in bed). For guests who have some difficulty in walking, the best room to stay is the first king suite or the queen suite on the second floor, this way s/he can access both kitchen, dining, living, lanai and still enjoy the ocean views at any time. However, s/he still need to be able to walk upstairs from the parking. Sorry to hear that you are on a walker or wheelchair. Our Orchid house is not suitable for wheelchair guests and we never advertise that Orchid house is wheelchair friendly. Since the time you booked the Orchid house, the only question I received was about what beach gear we provide. If you had asked about the wheelchair accessibility, we would have recommended to you to rent our other home, Hawaiian Hibiscus home VRBO#170960 (private pool/ hot tub in Poipu) instead. You can walk across the lawn directly from the parking to the house through a walking path. Three bedrooms, kitchen, dining, living room are on the same level and you can access the warm pool and hot tub on the lanai by stepping only one step down.

"My family of four rented the Orchid house for our stay in Poipu. We loved it! Our view was great, we were within minutes of everything we wanted, and having the ability to make our own meals on the great amenities was awesome. We had considered renting a hotel room but I am sure glad we didn't. The ability for each of us to have our own room and space, along with all of the extra amenities made this the obvious choice. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat." - Mark M., 02/04/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo. We are glad to hear that your love your stay and would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

"The Orchid House was a perfect fit for our group of 3 couples and 2 children. Once the kids realized there was a trundle bed under the day bed in the sun room/reading room just off the pool, they quickly staked their claim. FYI, the door from that particular room that leads to the pool has a child lock high up on the door making it easy to keep the pool area secure so little ones aren't wandering out there unsupervised day or night. There are also several children's books and games in the closet of the bedroom off the sunroom, so that section of the house was very much appreciated and well-used by my husband, myself and the kids. The beds are all comfortable and each room is equipped with air conditioning, however, we rarely used it as the trade winds cooled it off adequately at night (we traveled over Christmas and New Years). We appreciated having two washers and dryers and a garage full of pool and beach toys, including a beach umbrella, children's life jackets, floaties, tons of boogie boards, coolers, etc. There was really nothing we needed other than our own snorkeling gear. The kitchen is fully equipped with a rice cooker, slow cooker, plenty of cookware including extra large sizes of pots and pans, spices and several staples like oil, soy sauce, etc. The views from the upstairs bedrooms and living area are outstanding and we saw so many whales! The house is tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood on a hill that overlooks the few houses between it and the ocean for an unobstructed view and it is only about a 10 minute walk to Shipwreck and Poipu Beaches. There is both a long way and a short-cut to Shipwreck beach, but I would highly recommend taking the long walk at least once with your camera as there are several areas where the waves crash quite violently into the cliffs. Amazing to watch! The house is also close to two shopping areas, one with a weekly Farmer's Market that is a must if you want to sample some of the more exotic local produce. The property manager gave us some great tips (he saved us a significant chunk of change on our kayaking excursion) and he was always just a text away to answer any questions. It was like having our own personal concierge. Truly a home away from home. Mahalo for the amazing vacation!" - Lana L., 01/17/2018 (inquire/book)

Mahalo. We are so happy to hear that you had an amazing vacation! Whales are around the island from November - April and we glad to hear that you saw so many whales! while you are at the Orchid house. Very much appreciate you review.

"The Orchid House was exactly what we wanted! We were four couples spending a week vacationing together. 15 min. walk to multiple beaches; views of sunrise over the ocean from three of four bedrooms (we put our late sleepers in the darker room); spacious communal area; all four bedrooms with their own walk-in closet and en suite bathroom (plus a guest half bath off the kitchen); fully stocked kitchen for cooking every dinner at home--including a grill on the lovely covered porch for having dinner and drinks outside, even in a sprinkle! (And a Vitamix blender for all your pina colada needs!) The garage was stocked full of boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, and coolers for comfortable beach days. Two sets of washers and dryers; Pack 'n' Plays in most (all?) bedrooms; a stock of games in a closet. They've thought of everything. The building manager met us and gave us a tour of the house and then went above and beyond and drove us on a brief tour of the neighborhood, pointing out good snorkel spots and restaurants, etc. Thank you so much, Ning and Evan! We had a fantastic vacation." - Jessica H., San Francisco, CA, 12/01/2017 (inquire/book)

"It’s verybrare to have a perfect setup for vacation homes, but the Orchid House is the exception. This beautiful house has it all: large, perfectly situated rooms; pool area, great kitchen; grill; and a fully stocked inventory of beach items including reefs shoes! Easy access to the Grand Hyatt and 5 min max to Poipu beach." - Erik K., 11/18/2017 (inquire/book)

Aloha, Mahalo. We are so appreciate your comments.

"The house was perfect for our family of 5 and 2 extended family members. The view, location, and owners/help made our stay paradise for the 8 days. We had a minor issue with the freezer but Evan was attentive to our needs and made sure we were happy. Having the ability to swim in a private pool, walk to local beaches/shops, or simply enjoy the house makes renting this house amazing. The house had everything you need and the 2 washer and dryers were a terrific surprise. Our family will rent this house again when we head back to Kauai" - Sarah T., Portland, OR, 11/06/2017 (inquire/book)

"The stay started out with the property manager spending an hour with us orienting us to the house and touring the surrounding area. It was a great way to start our visit and set the tone for the service level we would receive. The house itself exceeded all expectations. Four large bedrooms along with fantastic common areas that provided the perfect location to get together as a group. The views were fantastic and we really enjoyed the pool. The kitchen had everything we needed for the week and had top notch appliances. We definitely recommend this property and plan on staying here again." - Jim B., 10/29/2017 (inquire/book)

"House was great for 4 couples. We enjoyed the the landscaping and scenery. The kitchen was well equipped and had a large outdoor gas grill. Plenty of beach equipment for various activities. The location was convenient to walk to numerous restaurants, beaches and resorts." - John H., The Villages, 10/06/2017 (inquire/book)

"Our family of 6 adults and 2 children just returned from 12 wonderful days at the Orchid House. The home is elevated on a small hillside overlooking the ocean, mountains and scores of swaying palm trees. This elevation also provides the upper living area with panoramic views of the sunrise over Shipwreck Beach and with binoculars, we could watch people jumping into the sea from Shipwreck Rock. Each couple enjoyed the privacy and comfort of their own master suite and the kids shared the 4th master suite on the lower level that connected to a separate reading/pool room with an additional day bed. All the bedrooms and living areas have large picture windows and balconies to enjoy the views. And although each room had its own air conditioner, we preferred using the smaller bank of louvered windows that would allow the trade winds to naturally flow through the house and keep it at a refreshing, comfortable temperature. From the Orchid House, it is an easy and quite beautiful walk to the rocky shoreline, Shipwreck Beach and the Grand Hyatt Resort. Located just across the street is The Point at Poipu, which has a small pool bar with surprisingly good drinks. All the other attractions, shops and restaurants in Poipu and Koloa are conveniently located only a short drive away. The house was spotless upon our arrival, nicely decorated and very well maintained. The bed and bath linens are of fine quality. The kitchen is well appointed with everything we needed. The laundry room has 2 washers and 2 dryers, which were extra convenient. The salt water pool is fantastic and the kids could not wait to get back to the house each afternoon to enjoy it. Lots of beach towels, snorkel gear and pool toys were provided. We couldn’t have asked for more and would highly recommend the Orchid House. Mahalo to the owner, Ning Gulari, for sharing this little piece of paradise with us!" - Mark Y., 08/09/2017 (inquire/book)

"Aloha, Ning! Thank you for the security deposit refund, which has been posted back to my credit card. Even more, thank you for sharing your beautiful home in Kauai! We absolutely loved our stay at the Orchid house! It was just perfect for our family and couldn't have been more comfortable. Really missing those amazing tropical breezes that flow through the house and the amazing sunrises each morning (and I'm not usually a morning person). Many thanks for helping to make this a truly special vacation for us! Looking forward to returning one day soon. Mahalo ten times over! Mark Yoshimoto " - Mark Y., Redondo Beach, CA, 07/25/2017 (inquire/book)

"We stayed in this house in April 2017 for an extended family vacation and it was amazing. Exceeded all expectations, the pool was amazing to come back to after the beach and site seeing. We had tons of space for each of us to stay comfortably, the bathrooms in every bedroom and closet space was a bonus. The morning sunrise is beautiful from the deck, its close to the beach ,sea turtles, rainbows, hiking and much more. I highly recommend this space, we had an amazing trip!" - Amanda G., 05/01/2017 (inquire/book)

"Dad: We stayed here in early April 2017. The house was perfect for our 10 person extended family vacation. Plenty of nearby things to do, fantastic scenery from the porches in the morning and throughout the day, as well as enjoyable amenities at the house when you just want to hang out. Very comfortable beds and kitchen and dining areas that allow for memorable big family meals. Very much enjoyed ourselves! Mom: This is an amazing house!! The morning view from the deck of the master bedroom is awesome. We enjoyed the pool and the spaciousness of the home!! It was the perfect vacation for us. The scenery is beautiful and the rainbows that we saw were a bonus to this magical trip!! Kids perspective: My parents took me to Kauai to vacation in this house, and it was very enjoyable. There are sights to see within walking distance from the house, like the beach and climbing a rock! On the beach there are sometimes seals, that are there all day, that are very fun to look at and take pictures with. The house has a nice outdoor pool at just the right temperature, and is fun to play in with family and friends!" - Andrew D., 04/27/2017 (inquire/book)

"This is a fantastic house, in a great location. We stayed at Orchid house for an extended family vacation and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Great bedrooms, with spectacular views, comfy beds, great closets and bathrooms! The house has everything you could need/want. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in close proximity to a number of adventures!!" - Susan B., 04/27/2017 (inquire/book)

"We had a great stay at the Orchid house. The property is very well maintained, has a great layout, a great location, and the pool was amazing for the kids. Our saddest moment of the 10 days was when we had to leave. Hopefully we will be back soon!" - Garth S., 03/16/2017 (inquire/book)

"The Orchid House was everything we had hoped for and more. Everything is top notch and well maintained. Having compared many properties before selecting this one, we can definitely say that this was a great value for the money. Ning, the owner, was great with communication, answering all our questions and meeting all of our needs." - Richard H., Arvada, CO, 10/28/2016 (inquire/book)

"This is a very comfortable house. There were 7 of us spread over 3 generations. Evan, the manager took very good care of us. It is in a great location. The house is extremely well equipped. We had a terrific time. Mahalo!" - Margaret D., 10/12/2016 (inquire/book)

"This is the second house that we have rented on Kauai from Ning Gulari. She is a person who pays attention to detail in all of her houses and has them equipped as well as your house at home - maybe better. The house is so well-equipped that all you have to purchase is food and drink. There are multiple sets of dishes so that if you have young kids with you, there are non-chip, non-breakable ones plus very nice plastic glasses. If you view Orchid house on the web, you'll get a very realistic view of all of the space and features. We had 6 adults and 4 grandchildren aged 2 through 7 1/2, and there was plenty of communal room and still spaces to be more alone. From the moment we walked into the house, we were thrilled by everything about it. If possible, it is even a better house than any of us had hoped for. We were able to use the Reading Room for our 7 1/2 year old grandson and 4 ½ year old granddaughter with no problem. We did order a cot for that room which proved very useful. The kids loved all of the pool toys and inner tubes and spray guns and spent many happy hours in the gorgeous pool. The pool and all of the pool toys for kids are in the garage and there is a wide range of them. I might suggest picking up a couple of more water gun types at Big Save or in Lihue. The kids can so easily play in the little pool or jump into the big one and love shooting water at each other. There are many spices in the pantry and in the round spice rack. There are hair dryers in every room as well as plenty of fans. We had lots of trade winds while we were there in June/early July, 2016 so we rarely used the air conditioning. It is fantastic to have 2 washers and 3 dryers and a very convenient counter for folding laundry. We brought very few clothes because we knew that we could do the laundry as often as we wanted. The gas grill outside is easy to use and we had almost every meal with our dinner's grilled outside. We ate out there most nights too. We did big Costco and Safeway shopping before we got to the house. I had a list of everything that we'd bought a few years before, and it was good to get a lot of shopping out of the way. Safeway is far superior to the Big Save, so try and get as much as you can before you get to Poipu and then stop in Safeway anytime that you need other things, especially if you are going to sights on the northern part of the island. We will go again and again." - Anonymous, Orinda CA, 07/10/2016 (inquire/book)

"This is a great house for 4 couples to rent, each bedroom has its own bath and a king or queen bed. The two upper floor bedrooms have a great view out over the south shore. The house is nicely situated near south shore activities. You can walk right down from the house to the shoreline to see turtles swimming in a rocky cove or waves crashing under a sea arch. The nearby sand beaches are easier to reach by car if you are carrying lots of stuff but the drive is short. The kitchen is very well equipped, beautiful Wolf 36\" - Donna M., 05/31/2016 (inquire/book)

"Beautiful home and a great location. There were 7 of us and we enjoyed the living area and the privacy of the 4 bedrooms. The property is in good shape and very well stocked with anything you need for your stay. The owner responded immediately on all communications and the property manager met us at the property to go over all the amenities and gave some ideas on places to visit." - bob p., 05/24/2016 (inquire/book)

"The house layout with the bedrooms at each side, living area in the middle allowied for quiet sleeping and a great area with beautiful views for the family. My grandchildren loved the swimming pool and the dryers made it convenient to dry suits and towels for more pool time. The garage has every beach toy, mats, chairs, whatever we needed to make excursions to the beach easy and convenient. We had a great time." - Bill G., 05/08/2016 (inquire/book)

"We rented the Orchid house for a two-week family vacation over the holidays. We totaled 11 people including 2 toddlers and the house worked out perfectly. The bedrooms are situated for maximum privacy and the kitchen and family room are spacious and open with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Evan, the manager, was very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed. The house is very well maintained and in a lovely neighborhood. It's a easy walk down to Poipu beach, the park, and local restaurants. We would highly recommend this home." - Katie A., Fox Island, 01/18/2016 (inquire/book)

"I am a VRBO Owner and have stayed in VRBO properties all over the World, and this was one of the nicest and best supplied homes I've been in. There really was nothing that we could have asked for, that we didn't have. Beginning with the beautiful Orchid leis and wine, and ending with a garage stocked with every imaginable water toy you could ever want. The location is perfect, just a short walk to several beautiful beaches and short drives to all the Island attractions. The home was beautifully appointed, the manager met us and answered any questions we might have, and the beds were amazingly comfortable. We woke to a gorgeous sunrise everyday. And the owner, Ning, was so attentive that she even sent us a note from the delivery room, before the birth of her baby! We can't wait to bring our entire family back for a long stay." - Susie H., -, 12/04/2015 (inquire/book)

"What a wonderful place to have a vacation. The Orchid house was terrific. Even the manger was very helpful and responsive when we had questions. The Popui coast was beautiful with many safe beaches to swim at. My family especially loved the pool at the end of a long day of sightseeing. My grandbaby was in the pool every chance she could and my husband and I enjoyed just floating at night looking at the moon and stars. The Orchid home had everything one could need in a home. And the beach equipment was amazing. It was a once in a life time trip for sure." - Anna M., 11/10/2015 (inquire/book)

"The Orchid House was more beautiful in person than in the pictures posted on the internet. I did extensive research before deciding on this home and it paid off! This was my dream vacation with all of my children and grandson. The house is well appointed and had everything you could possibly need for a family of eight! There were even full size shampoo and conditioner in each shower as well as outside at the shower next to the pool. We loved cooking on the Wolf stove and the new Weber BBQ grill outside. My 4 year old grandson, loved the pool and was in it every day. Evan, the property manager, was very kind and suggested a variety of activities for us to enjoy while there. We all enjoyed it so much, we decided that we would return again next year and try to make it a yearly tradition to return to the Orchid House in Kauai. Thank you, Ning, for making your home available for all of us." - Kathy A., San Diego, California, 10/06/2015 (inquire/book)

"Staying at the Orchid House was such treat for us. The pictures are wonderful and hold true but it is even better in person. We had a total of 6 people stay at this house. Plenty of room was an understatement. The views of the ocean were spectacular and could be seen from every window. It was a delight to open the sliders and get that ocean breeze. We took a 5-10 minute walk to the beach every day. That was so nice to be able to have that option. The Orchid House had every amenity that you could think of. It truly felt like home away from home. Evan the house manager was awesome! Anything you needed he was your man. We will definitely be recommending the Orchid house to family and friends and will not hesitate to stay here in the future. Mahalo, Khory Jordan" - KHORY J., 07/29/2015 (inquire/book)

"This house is really fantastic. It is completely equipped with everything a family could need on a beach vacation. The owner is very easy to deal with and the house manager, Evan, is both kind and thoughtful. The rooms in this house are very spacious and allow people to have ample privacy. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood, but is within a five minute drive to decent shopping and restaurants. My four year old is already asking when we can go back to the \" - Nancy F., Springfield, MA, 05/23/2015 (inquire/book)

"Outstanding home! Spectacular views, beautifully furnished and perfect location! Kitchen was perfect for making meals and gathering around the table to share with friends our days adventure in Kauai. Our group of eight traveled 12 hours to arrive at this home away from home and were never disappointed! Home manager was so friendly and took time to explain the home and sites not to be missed while visiting. We feel blessed to have been able to enjoy this dream of a life time and for that we are so grateful! Thank you for all your hospitality!" - RANDY K., 04/14/2015 (inquire/book)

We are delighted to hear that you had a great vacation. We always do our best to provide our guests with the best Kauai experience.

"This is our second time renting from the owners. We rented their other property, Bird of Paradise, last year thus we were comfortable in getting what you see in the pictures. The property manager happened to be doing some last minute pool work on the property as we pulled up 20 minutes early. He stopped and gave us the full tour of the house and answered other questions not directly related to the house. The views are outstanding. The house is situated perfectly to catch the tradewinds. An easy walk to two different beaches. We'll probably rent this house again the next time we come back to Kauai. This owner keeps this house well maintained." - Johnny S., 03/22/2015 (inquire/book)

"A great home. Well maintained and nicely decorated. 180 degree ocean views. Really enjoyed whale watching from the glass enclosed patio. Four bedrooms each with a private bath was a real plus. Can't wait to stay here again." - Ed W., 03/03/2015 (inquire/book)

"Look no further if you want a vacation home with amazing ocean views including the sunrise from 4 bedrooms, very private gorgeous pool, wonderfully comfortable beds, a spacious kitchen with everything 7 cooks could ask for, and great beaches close by. We had to rent nothing for our beach fun as Orchid House provides it all...even down to the slip-on water shoes. Evan, the caretaker was most helpful and just a phone call away. The grounds are impeccably maintained. We certainly hope to return and enjoy this lap of luxury once again." - Margo P., 02/25/2015 (inquire/book)

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We always strive to provide the best for our guests.

"We had a lovely stay at the beautiful and spacious Orchid House. There were twelve in our group including my husband, myself, our two children, my parents, my two brothers and their wives, each with a baby. We found the home to be beautiful, clean, and well-stocked with the various items one would need while vacationing in Kauai. The home had a stunning view of the ocean and was just a short walk to the beach. There was plenty of space and seating for all of us to spend time together in the main living area, but we also enjoyed the privacy of having four master bedrooms, each with an ensuite.

"We were celebrating a milestone birthday for my wife and we brought both our son's and their families with children and you could not ask for a more accomodating, luxurious home and great location for a family gathering. Everyone had their own master bedroom and the house came fully stocked with beach equipment, pool toys, kitchen amenities, linens & more. Home was immaculate, very clean and with an incredible view. Shipwreck beach and Poipu beach are close by and kid friendly and have snorkeling areas too. Great restaurants and resorts nearby.

We have rented vacation homes in beach locations around the world for a number of years and all of us felt this was our best rental. The house is beautiful and fairly new.

"We were a party of eight - three couples, one single, and a nine month old. This house was perfect for our group. As our daughter-in-law said, this house was better than even expected! The house itself is great. Very large, with enough room for privacy and quiet, but also with great public spaces to gather and be together. The views from the house of the ocean are awesome - it was fun watching the waves from the \" - Steve C., 05/26/2013 (inquire/book)

Aloha Steve: Thank you for your review. We take pride in providing a comfortable and luxurious home for our guests so that they have a truly relaxing and enjoyable vacation when staying in our homes. We are delighted that your family group had a great time. Hope to see you again in the future. Mahalo Ning.

"This was by far our favorite rental property in Kauai. The house way exceeded our expectations. The beautiful views from every room were breath taking. We stayed for a week and all of us shed tears the morning of our departure. Everything about the house and location was pristine. We will definitely be back to rent next year if not sooner." - Betsy G., 05/14/2013 (inquire/book)

"My husbsand, our two young children (age 3 & 14 months) and both sets of grandparents enjoyed our stay at the Orchid House April 2013. The house is spacious and well appointed with lovely views and a great pool. It easily accomodated the needs of our group in size and space.The Orchid house proved to be the perfect place to wake up to, spend a day at or relax in at the end of all of our Kauai adventures." - Jennifer Z., 05/01/2013 (inquire/book)

"We loved this home, it had all the amenities you could need and just a short walk to nice beaches. Kitchen was stocked with spices and odds and ends that made cooking gourmet dinners with local produce and seafood a breeze and all at a fraction of the cost of the pricey restaurants. Lots of snorkel and boogie boards for the kids to use as well as coolers, lawn-chairs and many other little things that made things like day trips and beach time better. Lots of guidebooks and local information are provided. Also a great host to attend to any specific information your family may need \" - Clay S., 03/10/2013 (inquire/book)

"Orchid House is a beautiful and welcoming home, nicely appointed and very well equipped. Thoughtful items include shampoo, body wash and other sundries that we did not have to buy. Our interactions with the owner were nothing but positive and Evan, our island contact, was a tremendous help. The pool and patio were great as were the beach chairs, towels, boogie boards etc. that were there for our use. The owners have gone above and beyond to make one's stay pure pleasure. We wanted for nothing. Shipwreck Beach and Brennecke Beach were within walking distance. The other Poipu Beaches were a short drive and easily accessible. Our families enjoyed deep sea fishing, a sunset whale cruise on a catamaran with Cap't. Andy, zip-lining, and an island helicopter tour. We cheered our Ravens on at a great local spot, Brennecke's and celebrated a birthday at Roy's. This was wonderful vacation spot - the amazing views, the ever present breeze, the perfect temps and watching the whales from our balconies. Thank you for the use of your lovely home! The Roesches and the Hibbbards" - Debbie R., 02/20/2013 (inquire/book)

"Our family along with grandparents spent Christmas vacation at this location. Beautiful well maintained property. Evan the caretaker was very helpful. House was well furnished and the pool was a huge plus with our 3 kids. Thank you! The Millers" - Pam M., 01/05/2013 (inquire/book)

"If you're looking for an amazing vacation home, this is it. Every amenity you could hope for….the kitchen is stocked with every gadget, bowl and kitchen appliance you need, house is so clean, the 4 master suites are incredible, and the garage is loaded with everything you need for the beach . It was so nice to have beach chairs at our disposal, cooler bags, boogie boards and snorkel gear. Ning was a pleasure to deal with the entire time and Evan is as helpful as can be. We had 4 couples for the majority of our 10 night stay. The house huge and the outside pool area is fabulous. The neighbour is safe, and you can walk to the beach within 5 to 10 minutes. Close to great restaurants and amenities. Would highly recommend this home. We will definitely book again with Ning, whether it be this home or the Bird of Paradise home just minutes away." - Sharon T., 12/06/2012 (inquire/book)

"We just returned from a week at the Orchid House and had a wonderful stay. There were 8 of us (4 couples) and the house accommodated all of us beautifully. There was enough separation from each bedroom that everyone had as much privacy as they wanted. The common areas (living room, kitchen, dining room) were spacious and had gorgeous views. We fixed many group dinners and found the kitchen to be nicely equipped. The pool was beautiful and at a comfortable temperature so we swam every day (and some nights too). An unexpected luxury/convenience were the 2 washers and 2 dryers in the spacious laundry room. The Orchid House is in a great location, and we thought it was it was one of the prettiest homes in the area." - Janice K., 10/10/2012 (inquire/book)

"We just stayed at the Orchid House for ten days. It was perfect. The house was amazing. We were very impressed with all the ammenities. Everything you would need for was right there stocked waiting for you, from the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry supplies to the outdoor boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and coolers. It was such a clean and beautiful house. There was enough space you didn't feel like you were tripping all over each other. The pool was fantastic and the house was close to everything. Evan was great, he took care of any needs or questions we had. Thank you Orchid House. We will definietly return." - Dara B., Wasilla, Alaska, 09/17/2012 (inquire/book)

"We stayed at the Orchid House with our entire family to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. There were 8 of us and it was perfect. Evan was the epitome of a hospitable host showing us around and telling us all the local tips for the island! The grounds and home was beautiful and elegant in every way. One great tip - we brought a baby and rented the crib and high chair from a local rental agency. The crib was set up in the downstairs bedroom closet. It is a big walk-in closet with beautiful built-ins. We put a fan in the room and she loved it! Her mom and dad had some privacy while sleeping in the bedroom next to her. They also had a visual monitor set up they brought with them to keep an eye on her. With her toys set up, it felt like a little nursery. The kitchen was very well stocked and we even had a steamer to cook the baby's veggies. We surfed, snorkeled, played family games, relaxed in the warm pool, took turns cooking dinner and enjoyed a wonderful family experience. One night we ate out at Merrimans (loved it). This is a hands-down winner!" - Dona H., 09/02/2012 (inquire/book)

"Hello, or should I say, Aloha, I'm sorry I haven't gotten around to writing you but my daughter just returned to Texas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home, Orchid House. The actual home and the amenities exceeded the pictures and description. Your property manager, Evan Price, met us at the house and showed my family the house and the surrounding area, which they appreciated. I hope we will have the opportunity to return and spend more time in Kauai. Thank you again. Donna Hisaka " - Donna H., Fountain Valley, CA, 08/03/2012 (inquire/book)

"Our family of 8 plus a 1 yr old stayed in your marvelous home during our early June trip to Kauai recently. This was the first trip to Hawaii for most of us and we are so excited we chose to stay in your home in Poipu. It was so up to date with everything we needed and the 4 bedrooms (including the additional trundle bed in the pool room) was just right and the fact everyone had their own bathroom was awesome. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything but food. I am very hot natured so the air conditioner in our bedroom was wonderful when needed. We sat at the window every morning looking out at the ocean, went for daily walks/jobs with the beautiful temperate weather (loved that) and strolls to the nearby Shipwreck and Poipu Beaches. The personal heated pools were great and our 1 year old loved floating in the baby pool. Plenty of snorkle/boogie board equipment that always came in handly and useful. Loved the grill and front porch area for relaxing. Evan was most helpful and provided one of the best tips in a little coffee/danish shop in Kappa nearby. He was there but not if you know what I mean. Some great adventures we recommend are the Hawaiian Blue Helicopter rides (so professional and comfortable); Smith Luau, trip to Ke'e beach on North Shore as well as Wailua Falls; dinner at The Beach House and Kioki Paradise; shopping in the little town of Koloa; Anara Day Spa at the Hyatt and just everything else. Took a day trip to Oahu and Pearl Habor and some took the kayak trip up at the Napali Coast. WE cooked breakfast every morning in your wonderful home and found it to be a paradise in itself. WE appreciate the personal service of your home and we are already figuring out how soon we can get back. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. I will recommend Orchid House to anyone I know headed that way. I have great pictures of the hibiscus out front. Mahalo! The Richardson and Lairds" - Sharon R., 06/17/2012 (inquire/book)

"Oh, my goodness. This house is all it says it is ... and more. We just spent a week there with our two daughters, their husbands, and our 5 and 7- year-old grandsons. Everyone had their own space, privacy when wanted, and communal space to spare. The house is fantastically equipped. Beach gear, pool gear, kitchen gear, dishes and glasses galore, good linens, lots of great towels, necessities and nice touches everywhere. The pools are fantastic ... warm, safe, clean. They are salt water, as stated, but hardly salty at all, not ocean water. The view is fantastic. It is even nicer than the pictures, comfortable, and inviting. It was as if we were in a beautiful tropical movie. If you like to sleep late, and light bothers you a lot, you might want eye shades, as the bamboo bedroom curtains let in some light. The sunrise is worth waking for, however ... and later than more northern latitudes. (The lower floor bedrooms get a little less light, tropical garden view.) Evan, the caretaker, was available, informative, and frequently around but unobtrusive. He takes wonderful care of the premises and the guests. We've rented many vacation homes. This was by far the nicest. It will make your vacation very special." - Alan and Sharon S., 05/13/2012 (inquire/book)

"Outstanding, spacious, luxury home with great view. House was a 'home away from home' with all the amenities you could ask for. Pool was clean and inviting.

"Our family just returned home from Kaua'i and our week at your beautiful Orchid House. Just wanted to let you know that your house was wonderful and we all loved our time there. Thanks so much. We especially loved watching the whales from the balcony, swimming in the pool and the great floor plan that allowed us to each have our separate bedrooms and bathrooms.

"Just got back on the 29th - we extended our trip and went to Maui for a few days as well. We so enjoyed your home and truly appreciate your efforts in making the home so comfortable and accommodating to every need of a vacationer. Evan was wonderful as well. We sure hope to stay there again sometime. Thank you again, Stacy " - Stacy W., Great Falls, MT, 02/26/2012 (inquire/book)

"Good Morning, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the amazing Orchid House. We loved the views from each room, the pool, the well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, walk in closets and all the amenities. Orchid house exceeded our expectations. We met Evan on Saturday and he was wonderful, showing us the house and surrounding areas. He even called one day to let us know the water conditions. Upon leaving Orchid House we were unclear what to do with unopened food items and good fruit. We left them behind hoping Evan or the cleaners could use the food. We hope this was appropriate. Thank you for the use of your wonderful home, we will certainly recommend to others. And a Big thank you for the wine in the refrigerator we used to toast my parents 60th wedding anniversary.

"We had an amazing vacation in Kauai with a group of 19 friends. 7 of us shared the Orchid house, and were the envy of the rest of the group. The bedrooms were all generous sizes, the bathroom finishes beautiful, and the kitchen a dream. Everything was spotless and we made good use of the boogie boards and snorkel gear provided. The location is perfect - close enough to walk to the beaches but one road back from the traffic of the main road. We watched whales, enjoyed the sunrise, and loved the refreshing breeze that kept the mosquitoes at bay and the air conditioner off. Everyone we met in Kauai was so friendly, including the property manager who had many great suggestions for restaurants and places to visit. Highlights for our group included golfing at Poipu Bay, hiking the Waimea canyon,and taking our 10 year old son for his first scuba dive, where we listened to the whales sing underwater and swam with the turtles. We can highly recommend Seasport Divers in Poipu who took some very nervous first timers ( adult and children ) on an introductory 40 foot dive and put them at ease. We can also highly recommend Keiko's Paradise Restaurant in Poipu village shopping center. Great place for dinner and very accommodating with kids. The Orchid house lived up to our expectations from the beautiful online photos. We were not disappointed. Everything ran smoothly from our initial inquiries about the property to follow up after our stay. We can't wait to return." - Jane W., Vancouver, British Columbia, 01/22/2012 (inquire/book)

"We stayed here for a week-long family vacation with a group that included 8 adults and 2 toddlers, and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations. Not only is the home beautiful, but the set-up with four separate suites gave everyone privacy and their own bathroom, with the ability to share the lovely common space as well. Everything was clean and well-appointed, with good supplies and amenities, from a great barbecue on the lanai to *two* washers and driers (handy with small children and lots of towel use!) and a garage full of great beach equipment. And, of course, the pool -- it's beautiful, warm, and very kid friendly thanks to the smaller \" - Betsy M., 10/04/2011 (inquire/book)

"We just returned from a family vacation in Kauai and stayed at this amazing home. Awesome views in every direction from this house. Everything that was needed is supplied. Huge supply of beach towels and all the toys for snorkeling, boogie boards, etc. The house is even better than the pictures on the web site show. House manager on the island was extremely helpful. Home owner provided excellent customer service and was very prompt with replies and transactions. Mike from Phx." - mike, 09/14/2011 (inquire/book)

"We stayed at this beautiful home for 10 days and it was one of our best vacations. The house was even more beautiful than we imagined and it had everything we could have needed. Plenty of snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and boogie boards. We did not have to rent anything for the beach. Our favorite part was that after a long day exploring Kauai, we would come home and relax by the pool. Our teen age boys loved the stereo system in the house and being able to listen to their music outside by the pool. We were a party of 7 and every one of us loved the house and our stay there. The house manager was extremely helpful in showing us around the neighborhood and showing us where to go for grocery shopping and restaurants. I have recommended this house to all my friends and relatives and would love to come back to Orchid House someday again." - Erika B., 09/06/2011 (inquire/book)

"Our vacation at the Orchid House in Poipu was simply amazing. My fiance and I were there with our children (8 of us in total) to enjoy the beautiful location and to get married. The property was extremely well maintained and the property manager was very helpful providing information on local attractions, activities and restaurants. The beach was within walking distance and grocery stores and other shopping just up the road. a short distance. This was a fabulous vacation. As our children said...the vacation of a lifetime. We would definitely recommend this property and location to our friends and relatives. Hope to return soon. Mahalo nui" - Joanne B., 09/05/2011 (inquire/book)

"I am not sure I can sum up the awesome qualities of this home in this small space! We have rented many homes over the years in Hawaii. They always look so incredible on the computer, however, when we see them in person, they are far from incredible. The Ordhid Home is an exception. This home is far better in person. It has every imaginable amenity one can imagine. Other than our food, there was nothing we had to purchase. Extremely well-stocked kitchen cabinets allowed us to use real dishes and not paper plates!!! High quality cookware along with pyrex containers were a real plus. Kids? No problem, The home had a port-a-crib, high-chair and every pool toy one child could ever want.The furniture was comfy which is something we also found unusual in a rental. I don't think I have ever stayed in a rental unit (including home, condo, hotel) that was as immaculate as the Orchid Home. The property manager, Evan was extremely helpful in showing us the area and making suggestions for dining and beaches etc. We spent 2 weeks there and we were all sad to leave this amazing place. The pool was beautiful. The owners did not spare a penny furnishing this place. If you are even slightly thinking about renting this home, don't hesitate. It is a dream!!" - Linda, Milford, NJ, USA, 06/11/2011 (inquire/book)

Mahalo! We are so glad to hear that you had a wonderful stay (Big smile).

"Ning, I wanted to drop you a quick note and tell you how nice a time we had staying at your home in Poipu. Evan did a great job on the initial check in and your house had everything we needed to make it our home for the week. You have quite a home away from home! Thanks for letting us stay there. Tim " - Tim a., The Woodlands, Te, 05/14/2011 (inquire/book)

"The house is just as spectacular in person as it is in the photos posted online. We spent 1 week in May 2011 with a party of 8 people in this wonderful home. The four bedrooms are all master bedrooms with their own baths- fantastic convenience. The house is immaculately clean, the house manager is accessible, super friendly and full of tips for seeing the local sites. The owners are very responsive to all questions and were a delight to deal with as well. The house is conveniently located- you can walk to Shipwreck beach or to the beach near Brennecke's easily. It is a short drive to local restaurants, grocery stores and shopping. Overall a truly wonderful experience- would recommend highly to anyone wishing to stay on beautiful Kauai." - Heather, Corona, California, 05/11/2011 (inquire/book)

"Three families, including 3 young grandchildren (1-4 years old) vacationed at The Orchid House for 1 week. An incredible house maximizing the +200 degree view of the ocean. Watch whales and dophins while having your morning coffee! The owners provided everything imaginable to provide a safe, relaxing vacation. From beach accessories, snorkel equip., plentiful towels and mats, children's toys, etc. etc., etc. Even an extra electric high capacity dryer! The swimming pool is magnificant including a small kid pool. The resident manager was so helpful explaining the house, and recommending tours and drives!
