Holiday season 16/17
A guest from Otis, OR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 10 days in December, 2016 We stayed here 2 years ago and fell in love with this house that was quaint, and unique. The views are amazing and sitting on the upper deck is our favorite morning spot. However this time the house was not as clean as we would have liked. The rugs in the bathrooms were stained and dirty, there was sand and hair on the bathroom floor downstairs, and all the bedding seems very worn. A few items in the kitchen were broken, no kitchen towels, no soap for the showers, the garbage was full from the previous renters, no propane for the BBQ, and dead flowers were left in a vase with ants crawling all over them. I understand cockroaches are common in tropical areas but still a little grossed out having to kill multiple in the kitchen and bathrooms. When I called in October to confirm our reservation and make the final payment, our reservations were not clear or easily found. While staying in the house we called about a few items, had to leave messages and were never contactedOver all the house felt dirty and older. It is such an amazing spot to enjoy looking over Poipu. You can walk to the beaches and shopping areas easily. The house just needs some extra TLC.
A guest from Otis Orchards, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2016 This is an amazing home that fits a lot of people, all of the bedrooms are downstairs, but there is an optional sliding partition upstairs that creates a big bedroom. View is incredible, it was fully stocked with towels, sunscreen, breach gear and necessities.
A guest from Howell, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2016 This was my family's third stay at this comfortable, clean, well equipped home with Amazing Views! The kitchen had all the equipment we needed and we cooked every meal at the house. Even the non stick pans were in good shape. And the knives where sharp. And the view, Amazing! We got nine around the dinning table including one high chair. Read or work on the lanai or the window seat and you have Amazing Views of the ocean and the hills and the Rainbows! The 3 bathrooms were clean. I would appreciate some hand held shower heads. The beds were comfortable, not too soft or too hard. The bedding clean and cotton. There is no air conditioning, but you don't need it because the design for air flow is amazing. The breeze is always moving through the house. Humidity would build overnight in the upstairs because we closed it off because of the rainy season. Open the windows and it disappears, Amazing. The bedroom on the south side is CLOSE to the road. I heard traffic while awake, but was never awakened by traffic. But I slept sooo good breathing all that FRESH air. This is a charming, comfortable, traditional Hawaiian home. I love it. There is a pool, quirky but clean, a hot tub, I'll take the ocean, and a grill, downstairs to the upstairs kitchen. Parking for no more than 2 cars. There are tons of beach towels, a couple of chairs, beach toys for the kids and some snorkel equipment. My husband actually used one of the sets. The washing machine is in the closet by the front door on the level with the bedrooms. So convenient. This house is amazing in many ways besides the views! It's a 10 minute walk to the beach, downhill, 15 going up. Poipu is an amazing beach for kids and good for snorkelers and walkers. If you are here to relax on the beach, this is a great location. If you want to travel to the west, its a good location. If you want to go all the way to the north by going east, you can make it a day trip. Aloha!
Amber R. from Herriman, UT does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2016 We absolutely loved the view from this house. The location is great too. I have two major issues with this house. It is in desperate need of a good deep cleaning. Cobwebs in the ceiling, lots of dirt in the shutter dividers, door jams and around door handles are super dirty. Also, so many bugs. My husband left his toothbrush on the bathroom counter and it was covered in tiny little bugs the next morning. Cereal boxes in the kitchen had them as soon as we opened them. Even a glass of water left out on the kitchen counter had a whole bunch in it when we returned. Little cockroaches on the kitchen table. I came home feeling like everything needed to be fumigated.
A guest from Rochester, Victoria recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2016 A clean home fitted with all the basics including a gate for the staircase for the kids. A few maintenance issues but were addressed while we were there. Ideal home for a large family of all ages and was close enough to all the activities relating to our family wedding. Definitely amazing views. Only problem was parking
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Eleanor, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write a review. We truly appreciate you doing so. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Amazing Views.
Vivian M. from Victoria, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2016 My family enjoyed the view , the space and proximity to the beach
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo for your lovely review, we appreciate you taking the time out to write it. We hope you will consider us again when you plan your next Kauai adventure.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 The house was beautiful! There was plenty of space for my family (5 adults). We loved having coffee on the lanai and taking a swim in the pool that was perfectly shaded. The location was wonderful: close to restaurants, shops, and the beach. Kauai is a beautiful place and this was a fantastic home base for our first trip to the island. The only downside was there was no air conditioning, but it seems that most places don't have air conditioning here.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Amanda, thank you for writing a review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. And you are correct, a lot of homes here do not have a/c. We relay on the trade wind, which sometimes decide to skip us once in a while, to cool things down. Mahalo
A guest from Highlands Ranch, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 Amazing Views Hale was a wonderful base of operations for a multi-generational trip (6 and 9 year old boys, parents, 24 year old sister in law, and 3 grandparents). The pool and hot tub were a huge hit, especially since surf was rough while we were on Kauai. The beds were very comfortable, the house was large enough for everyone to find peace and relaxation, and the views truly are amazing.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Cristina, we appreciate you taking the time out to write a lovely review. We are so happy that your family vacation we enjoyable. We hope you will consider us again when you plan your next Kauai adventure. Mahalo.
A guest from San Carlos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 We highly recommend staying at this funky home with a world class view of the ocean, amazing sunsets from the balcony, and a short walk to the beach. The lap pool and spa in the back yard is a fantastic bonus. The kitchen is stocked with most anything you need to go with your groceries. The bedrooms are great for a family or even more than one family.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo Jay for taking the time to write a review. We are happy to hear that your enjoyed your stay on our beautiful island. We look forward to having you return again in the future.
A guest from Carpinteria, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Everything is as advertised and more!The house is perfect! Comfy, quirky, with everything you could need. We arrived a tad before check-in and were allowed to unload our bags before we headed back to Lihue for a trip to Costco. Upon return the house was ready and more than we hoped for. We all raced upstairs to see the "Amazing Views." From the upstairs deck you have a great view of Poipu Beach Park and the sandspit, but just wait until the sun sets.Every morning we took a quick 5 minute jog down to Brennecke's or Poipu and found multiple sea turtles laying on the beach.Plenty of informative notes on fridge about civil defense alarm, trash, and other instructions for house features.We made plenty use of the outdoor shower, pool and hot tub. It was so convenient when getting a little hot to just open up a downstairs door and hop in the pool. The grill was very clean and worked great once lit. Use a lighter, automatic ignition does not work.So many beach accessories! Snorkles, masks, fins, chairs, backpacks, umbrella, and kids toys. These are used by all renters, don't have the mindset of being able to use brand new equipment. My snorkel was attached with a hair tie, and worked GREAT!!!Plenty of towels and having laundry service in house was a big plus.I would definitely recommend this property to a friend and we will definitely be back. Make sure to eat at Eating House 1849 for dinner one night. Absolute best food in the nearby shopping center. Also stop at Da Crack for a fish burrito and Makai Sushi in the market next door for lunch.- Rooms are large, especially the far left bedroom near hot tub.- All appliances in great working order
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Jackson, mahalo for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write us a review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Amazing Views Hale. We hope you will return to our lovely island real soon.
A guest from Aiea, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 From the very beginning, Christine was amazing in helping us get the reservations done for this house. The home is beautiful. We had 7 girls and 3 adults staying there for a volleyball tournament on Kauai. This home was perfect for us. The upstairs living area was big enough for us to hold group activities with the girls. The kitchen was perfect for cooking our meals, which helped bring the cost of the trip down since we didn't have to go out to eat. There were more than enough beds for all of us. The couch was so comfortable that one of the adults decided to sleep there. Having three full bathrooms made the mornings easier to manage. And of course the view was absolutely amazing. It can get a little hot in the late afternoons but when the winds were blowing the breeze came right through. The owners provided several fans in each room which helped a lot with the heat. The only reason I give it 4 starts was the parking. The house is located on a turn and the parking for 2 minivans was very tight. I would definitely recommend this house for a big group or family traveling to Kauai.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Sandra, Thank you so much for the great review! We really appreciate your positive and honest comments. We hope you will stay with us again soon.
Sandra S. from Scottsdale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in May, 2016 Had an amazing time at amazing views! Clean, well stocked comfortable home. Loved the house, pool, hot tub and the amazing ocean view. We were a family of eight and had a wonderful stay! Highly recommend!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo Sandra for taking the time to write a lovely review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again in the near future.
Kathryn T. from White Salmon, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2016 Stayed at Amazing Views Hale in early March with my husband, our 2 1/2 year-old son, and my sister, her husband and 10 year old daughter. This house was large enough to accommodate all of us. Lots of space, beautiful views and lots of amenities! The house is in walking distance to Poipu Beach Park.m, which is a great beach that offers snorkeling opportunities and a safe, shallow swimming area for small children. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and and will definitely be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 We hope that you will consider us when you book your next Kauai adventure. Mahalo for taking the time to write this lovely review.
Loren A. from Anchorage, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in February, 2016 We have stayed at this particular home several times now. It's nice that our familiarity with the surrounding area has grown over the years. I'm sure a lot of people say this when visiting Kauai...but I'll say it too. It feels like going home. I'm sure this won't be the last time we visit Kauai or the last time we stay at Amazing views Hale. Mahalo
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Loren, we hope this won't be your last stay. We hope this will be just the beginning. Thank you for writing this lovely review.
A guest from Bethel, VT recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2016 This is a great house, we really enjoyed our stay! It worked great for our family -- three couples and a 2-year-old. We loved the layout, but it doesn't offer a ton of privacy. Also, with the pool and the stairs it's not the most toddler safe house.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you for your review, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Lisa S. from Carmichael, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2016 Home was perfect for two families with kids and one grandmother. Rooms were spacious. Great location - walking distance to perfect snorkeling beach. Home was well equipped with tons of beach equipment (snorkels, fins, chairs, boogie board, surf board, ice chests, and umbrellas for beach/rain). Tons of beach towels- no need to pack extra. Glass doors open completely in the dining room to let the outside in. We had a fantastic time!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo for your review, so happy to hear that your stay at Amazing Views was enjoyable. We hope will consider us again for your next Kauai adventure.
Sidnee D. from Santa Cruz, Ca. recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2016 Our stay at Amazing Views Hale was amazing! The house was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. Their were 8 of us and plenty of room. We took turns cooking dinner every night in the kitchen and played board games. The view from the upper deck was spectacular. My husband and son could check out the surf every morning from the deck. The pool was refreshing and the hot tub relaxing. It took us about 10 minutes to walk to the beach. The house came with boogie boards, beach chairs, scuba gear and ice chests. Plenty of beach towels and they even had sunscreen and mosquito repellent. The 2 vases of real flowers were beautiful. Our vacation was the best!We would love to stay at the house again. We highly recommend it!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Sidnee, we are so glad to hear that Amazing Views was to your liking. We hope that you will book with us again in the near future. Mahalo for the lovely review.
A guest from Gibsonia, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2015 Our family of 6 loved our stay in Amazing Views Hale. The house was spacious and very well equipped. We didn't use the pool much but the hot tub was used! Sunset could be seen from the balcony. The location/neighborhood was very nice and a short walk to the beach. Kauai is a beautiful island and we enjoyed snorkeling in Poipu, a helicopter tour of the island, some of our group went on a half day scuba dive, we drove through Waimea Canyon and spent several hours hiking there. We enjoyed dinner at Keoki's Paradise and Pizzetta, and lunch at Kalapaki Beach Hut after our helicopter ride.Poipu365 was very easy to work with, and any questions I had were answered quickly.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Brigid, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We hope that you will return in the future. Mahalo for taking the time to write a review for us, it is greatly appreciated.
Brian R. from Denver, Colorado recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 Our stay at Amazing views Hale was perfect. Our check in was seamless, the house was spotless and very well equipped with everything we needed. We could not get enough of the views from the balcony. We will recommend this place to everyone we know!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you Brian for your review. We are glad to hear that you will be spreading the word about the beautiful Amazing Views. We are glad that your stay was successful, and we hope that you will consider us again when you come back to Kauai. Mahalo
It was a great place and it was big enough for the whole family
Kathryn M H. from Shelton, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 It was close to the beach. No yard for the kids and stairs were a hazard for small children. But it worked out well. Well supplied in the kitchen. Great views and quiet neighbors
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Kathryn, thank for taking the time to write your wonderful review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope you use our services again when you plan your next Kauai adventure. Mahalo Nui Loa
Jean H W. from Worthington, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 We stayed at Amazing Views Hale with our adult children and their spouses for one week. Slept eight very comfortably. Kitchen was well equipped. Close to beach and night life. This house was wonderful in every way. We had recently stayed at a VRBO house that no soup or shampoo or dish soap so was pleasantly pleased to see full bottles for our use. Everything felt clean and attended to. Wonderful experience.
A guest from Clear Lake, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2015 Everything about the property met our expectations and did justice to the complimentary reviews. The only issue was that the hot water heater was not functioning properly and we had lukewarm water (sometimes cold water) for the first 5 days of our stay. We had daily contact with the property management, but the problem was not fixed until Vicki stopped one afternoon and tested the water herself. We were given a small compensation for the inconvenience, but felt the problem should have been addressed much sooner.
Emily S. from New york, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 We were honeymooning in Kauai and stayed at the amazing views house for 3 nights. Kauai alone is amazing but staying here on top of the crater wih views to the ocean are invaluable! We loved the place and lots of beach gear, sunscreen, chairs and toys to borrow.
Wendy K. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2015 Amazing Views Hale is a truly beautiful home, perfect for two families. The views are, indeed, amazing. The home is furnished in elegant Hawaiiana, and feels bright and light. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed - including sand toys and plenty of towels. Poipu365 was responsive, friendly, and great to work with. Can't wait to come back!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2015 Amazing Views Hale contributed to what our family of 6 said was "The BEST vacation ever!" We are a family of two grandparents, a young adult aunt, and young parents with a three-and-a-half year old daughter. The second bedroom with the sunken area was perfect for the young family to have their own space, and the rest of the house offered lots of room for all. The lap pool and hot tub were utilized almost daily, as was the grill. Walking to Brennecke's beach was easy (cutting through the condo parking lot a little way down the hill to avoid the street traffic) and very pleasant, as was the walk to the Hyatt on the beach path. We loved, loved, LOVED the views, amazing sunsets, spying Nihihau, watching the rain clouds bypass Poipu, double rainbows, whales galore, and the boat traffic - so much fun! The house is beautifully decorated and quite comfortable.
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2014 This place met all the expectations from the beautiful photos. And much more. Every single time we looked for something, we found it, including things like: many convenient electrical outlets for charging gadgets; kitchen equipment such as a juicer and a coffee grinder; olive oil, salt and pepper, etc. etc. etc.. Just perfect. We've rented apartments and houses about 25 times in the US and Europe in the past 10 years. This was the very best.
Philip Z. from Valley Center, KS recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in December, 2014 The house was wonderful. It had a spectacular view, was large, well equipped and was clean. It could not have been better.
Frederick H M. from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 beautiful location on the ocean. Nice heated pool, walking distance to beaches and breakfast nook. Very well appointed condo with separate bedrooms and all amenities. A/C would have beenwelcome.
Christina H. from Vancouver, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 Our stay Oct 1st to Oct 7th, 2014- everything you could want or need in one vacation home. All the amenities made for a amazing vacation!
10 yeras gone-A return to Poipu and the Garden Isle
Linda L M. from Santee, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2014 Our family had been happily vacationing annually in Poipu for many years until about 10 years past when the property we had been renting near Breneke's Beach changed hands. On our last stay there the new management neglected to flush the septic tank in a timely manner and it backed up into the house. We spent the remainder of our stay with noxious odors assailing our nostrils. We decided to try other locations in the Bahamas, Cozumel, Costa Rica, etc. After ten years we decided to return to Poipu-after all, our three oldest chidren had learned to swim and snorkel in the tide pool at Poipu Beach. We found this beautiful location through Homeaway and were plesantly suprised to find it as charming as the photos showed and Poipu as unchanged and gorgeous as ever. The staff were very professional, the location great. The only drawback came later in our stay at the Amazing Views-The first 6 days we were without neighbors and it was heavenly to go to sleep with the sound of the nearby breakers and wake to bird songs outside our window. Then some folks arrived next door to attend the Kauai Marathon. When I say next door-I mean RIGHT next door...their patio was literally a few feet from our master bedroom and they could look directly into it. Our sense of privacy was impacted; now we went to sleep with our neighbors partying almost in our rooms and woke up to the sounds of them cooking in a kitchen again just a few feet away-a thin hedge between was not an adequate sound barrier. We liked the location very much, but with caveats.
A guest from Creston, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2014 We had a group of five who enjoyed the various views through one of multiple windows or the balcony. The cleaning crew did a great job of cleaning thee windows!
A guest from Gold River, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 True to it's name, the views were amazing. This house shows it's age with slow flushing toilets, old hardware (front doorknob fell off) and a vintage/almost non-working toaster oven. The doorknob issue was taken care of in a timely manner when reported. We enjoyed the flower bouquet we were brought upon arrival.
A guest from Ojai, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in May, 2014 My wife, son, daughter-in-law, her parents and our 9 month old granddaughter stayed at Amazing views for 3 fantastic weeks. The house felt like home, a home with views that made you have to pinch your self very morning to make sure they were real. The bright open living area let you really experience the refreshing breezes and sound of the surf in the evenings. The location is perfect. We walked to the beach every day and watched turtles playing the surf. In the evenings we shared getting away to some great restaurants, many easy walks from the house. It was truly a fun and relaxing vacation for all of us.
CANDYCE S. from lincoln city, oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014 WE HAD THE MOST AWESOME TIME AND WOULDN'T COME TO HAWAII AGAIN WITHOUT STAYING THERE! EVERYTHIG AND EVERYONE WAS FABULOUS TO WORK WITH. LOVED IT!!!!!
A guest from Fergus Falls, Minnesota recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2014 This rental was everything we had hoped. Wonderful location and wonderful views right from the home itself. The house was well prepared for us and the lights were on welcoming us in during our evening arrival. All in all, it was the perfect choice. Thank you!!
A guest from Issaquah, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 The beach was just a short walk from the house. The house is private and well cooled off with the high quality quiet ceiling fans.The furniture was comfortable and of high quality. Having morning coffee on the deck with the plumeria at nose level was a great way to start the day.we felt pampered.
Susan S. from Davis, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 This was the perfect place to stay for our family vacation. There was plenty of room for us and our 2 daughters and sons-in-law, and we will be able to accommodate grandchildren as well when we return in the future! The kitchen is a bit small, but well-equipped. The common living areas are pretty and spacious, and the views really are AMAZING! The location was great. The management was perfect. Loved our stay!
PERFECT "Home Away From Home" on top of the World!!
Paul C L. from Black Creek, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 We Loved the "Amazing Views" House on the crater. It was even nicer than we thought it would be. There was lots of space & views from every room. We saw whales, swam & hot tubbed every morning. Barbecued, walked to a couple different beaches on the great paved trail system nearby. The beds and furniture was very comfortable. Our favorite accommodation of the 4 we stayed @ while on the Island. Thanks for sharing your beautiful & clean house with us for the week. Sincerely Mitzi & Paul Larsen
A guest from Moses Lake, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2014 The "Title" says it all. Our family had lots of room and our extra dinner guests did too. Everyone we knew on Poipu wanted to come to our house for dinner because we had the best house and the best view. We had a ball!As for the cleanliness, that has been taken care of with a fabulous new housekeeper. Thanks Christine, for all your care.
Emily C. from Kirkland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2014 We very much enjoyed the house. However, on Wednesday with a heavy rainfall there was a waterfall of water coming in through the ceiling in the bedroom with the curtains. Luckily, no suitcases were near the flood or we could have had some serious property damage. It is also a good thing we were there when this happened and that I happened to go into the bedroom to shut off a light. I would really recommend repairing this soon or please let your renters know.
Elizabeth A S. from Boise, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2014 We were greeted by the cleaning lady who was finishing up from previous stay. She was helpful by showinv us the house and how things worked. The house exceeded our expectations. It was equipped with s everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.
A guest from Washington, DC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2013 The house was perfect for our purposes. The views were spectacular ad the location was fantastic. We would come back.
Patrick W. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2013 Except for the wonky freezer that didn't always freeze and the wimpy dishwasher that didn't always clean, the place was very nice. Everything else was in good condition and the view is very pleasant.
Hayley H. from Maylands, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 Awesome property, with amazing views. Everything that you could need to make full use of the house and surroundings is provided including reef shoes, snorkeling gear, towels, guide books etc. Poipu is also a beautiful town and I have already recommended this house to a number of my friends.
Alister L. from Melbourne, Victoria recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2013 Although the house is old and could do with a lift in the kitchen and bathrooms it was clean, comfortable and stacked with everything you need for a holiday in Kauai. We had a fantastic stay at AVH and would stay there again in a heartbeat. The view will remain a lasting memory as it is truly fantastic as is the local beach complete with Turtles and Seals and Tropical Fish ( viewed with masks and snorkels courtesy of AVH) Lovely holiday.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Alister, You are right! The view from Amazing Views Hale is in the "unforgettable" category! The home is well-stocked with what is needed for a wonderful stay and we are glad you enjoyed it! Come back and stay again!
Kelly S. from Oakville, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 The house is so beautiful, spacious, excellent lighting throughout. The kitchen was awesome, stocked to the nines and a great setting for preparing meals. The only complaint was the heat not having air conditioning made the upstairs very hot but once we placed a few fans around we managed. Then the temperature cooled off and all was good. The outdoor pool, hot tub and shower just made our vacation that much better, spending mornings after our walk to the beach cooling off with late afternoon swims. It's location is perfect, a five minute walk to a beach and a few more minutes to Brennecks Beach and Poipu Beach park. Having all of the beach gear was a bonus, snorkel equipment, body boards, water shoes. A perfect home for our vacation!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Kelly, Your description of Amazing Views is spot on! The ability to open up this home that sits on the edge of the crater allows in the cooling ocean breezes which are assisted by the ceiling fans as they cool this property. So glad you enjoyed the beach gear provided by the owner! Amazing View Hale awaits your return!
Raschell M. from Manhattan Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2013 We have been to Kauai a number of times and have always rented a condo in Poipu. We all really enjoyed staying in a house this time instead. There was more space, better views and parking was great. The house was lovely and provided everything we needed to be comfortable in our home away from home. We will definitely be repeat guests at Amazing Views Hale.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Raschell, Amazing Views Hale can definitely be a home away from home with its beautiful views of Poipu, ample space, and parking! We will be waiting for your return!
Donald L. R. from Newbury, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Seven of us stayed in the Amazing Views Hale. We have visited Kauai 5 times and stayed in 8 different locations. This house has the best views we have ever had. The staff are responsive and polite. I would recommend this rental for any large group.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Donald, Amazing Views Hale truly has "amazing views" of Poipu! It's size and configuration allows for a group of 10 to stay here so next time bring all your friends! We hope to reserve Amazing Views Hale for you on your next Poipu visit.
Anika L. from San Mateo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013 My friends and I recently stayed here for a week in July and had a fantastic time. It was easy to book and management was quick to get a hold of when we contacted them for questions. The house was very clean and easily slept 10 of us. It had lots of amenities - including washer/dryer, BBQ, basic cooking supplies, pool, hot tub, and even extra snorkel gear, water socks, and beach towels. The best part of the house was definitely the cool beach theme, and the superb view of Poipu and the beach. It was an easy 10 min walk to the beach as well. Parking is tight and we could barely fit two cars, so if you plan on having more than two cars it would be an issue. All in all we couldn't have been happier with the house we selected, and would highly recommend it for a family or group of friends traveling to Kauai. Thank you Amazing Views!
Paul/Pam S. from Fresno, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in July, 2013 A perfect place for a family of 10, including two grandparents with four grandchildren, ages 18 to 5. The Poipu location offers something for everyone within walking distance: snorkeling, boogie board beach, Kekei (small children) beach. The lap pool and spa got used everyday and the gas barbeque was great. But the best is the view...watching from the lanai the mountains and the sea as the sun comes up and then again as the sun goes down...fantastic!
A guest from San Luis Obispo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2013 Great location, lovely house, comfortable beds, well equiped kitchen, beautifully furnished. The best vacation EVER!
A guest from Snohomish, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in April, 2013 The home was clean but the furnishings were quite dated. The bathroom showers smelled like mold. The location was wonderful, near the green belt with views of the ocean. The place just needs an update, especially in the bathrooms.
Shawn S. from Peachtree City, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2013 We just spent 8 days in Kauai, and were so pleased when we arrived at Amazing Views Hale. We were with a group of friends, and the space accommodated our group perfectly! We had friends in the area, and they were all amazed by the view. The views were truly incredible - a porch is a perfect place to watch the sun rise and set. The property is in a great location with easy access to the beach, restaurants, shopping and activities. We couldn't have been more pleased with the home! Next time we come to Kauai, we will definitely stay here again. We hope to come back again soon!

Robert H. from Calistoga, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2013 Five of us shared the house for one week and hated to leave. Every activity at the house centered around being where we could see the view. Awesome. Lots of whales and beautiful sunsets. I have relocated to the Waiohai and wish I had the view from Amazing Views Hale. If you are looking for a place to stay, you will be glad you picked this house.

A guest from Aurora, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 There's a reason this home is called Amazing Views Hale. It boasts the most jaw-dropping views of Kauai's south shore. The comfy furniture provided many evenings of relaxing with a cocktail while watching gorgeous hawaiian sunsets. Watching the ocean was such a treat from my normal Rocky Mountains view. Can't wait to come back and take my seat on the lanai to watch the sunsets again! This home was perfect for 3 couples, each having their own privacy and place to relax. Thank you for everything!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha,Mahalo for your positive comments about Amazing Views Hale. It is the place to watch those gorgeous Poipu sunsets over the ocean! We will be looking forward to reserving Amazing Views for your next Poipu vacation.
Linda D. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 We had a wonderful time. The home had everything you needed to enjoy yourself. It was a bit noisey at times do to being in a residential area. Shopping and restaurants were near buy. All in all it was worth the money we paid for this property.
A guest from Rolling Hills Estate, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 Very happy with everything and would certainly recommend your services.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Donna,Mahalo for your review of Amazing Views Hale. You can enjoy the most amazing sunsets from this home! We lok forward to seeing you on your next Poipu trip.Vicki
Michael M. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 The Amazing Views house is very aptly named. Very charming and very clean and well maintained. We will return to the exceptional property.
A guest from Tiburon, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in February, 2012 This maybe the best home and view in Poipu. This is coming from someone who has been going there for over 40 years. Great for two or three couples or a big family.
A guest from Lake Jackson, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012 All five of us really enjoyed our stay at Amazing Views! It was fantastic to be able to watch the humpback whales from the dining room or kitchen or porch! The home is in a nice neighborhood and was very clean. Most of us enjoyed the outdoor shower as well. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone.
Kim P. from Hoboken, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2011 Honestly, the pictures for this property do NOT do it justice. The inside is much more toned down than it appears. The only thing we did think was that it was on the beach, but it's about a 10-15 minute walk down the hill. Also, none of the bedrooms have a beach view because they are blocked by greenery. COMPLETELY blocked.Otherwise, this place was amazing. It was big and open and so convenient for everything. I would DEFINITELY come back!
Carl B. from Kennett Square, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2011 So Kauai is an amazing place. When we got to Amazing Views, we were floored. It was BIG - even though there was only 2 of us. It was laid out nicely with the bedrooms at street level and the living and kitchen (and a 3rd full bathroom) upstairs. The views are remarkable. We watched the moon go down the first morning. Then we turned around and watch the sun come up. Sunsets were right over the water and the rainbows were frequent (double ones even). THe hot tub was fantastic. The pool was a little chilly but perfect for cooling off after the hot tub. It was furnished wonderfully and the structure has lots of REAL WOOD. Lest you think I'm a relative (therefor biased), I would have preferred a gas range (I like to cook a lot) and the router needed to be reset once in a while. Neither of these things detracted from our stay at all. It (and the area) was quiet. After seeing the whole island, we are also sold on the Poipu area. We totally recommend this place.
A guest from San Diego, Calif recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2011 Place would work great if you have a big group. Lot of potential sleeping areas. The house gets very hot in the afternoon sun. Plan to leave. We never used the spa or lap pool. Super small ants in the kitchen, but not particularly annoying. No premium cable channels, no DVR. Easy access to beaches. Dining has improved on Kauai south shore. Dondero's at the Hyatt is 5 star.
A guest from Columbus, New Jersey recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 We stayed in the Amazing Views Hale for a week in early August. Our group consisted of four adults and three teenagers. This house exceeded everyone's expectations. Everyone had a comfortable and private place to sleep, the house had everything we needed - and more, and I cannot say enough how beautiful the views are. We spent so much time just staring out the windows and sitting on the lanai, overlooking the beach and the mountains. A picture-perfect sunset every night and we didn't have to leave our seat! The location of the house was perfect; all our sightseeing and adventures were easily reachable and it always felt like home when we came back at the end of the day. This bright, cheerful, clean house will make your visit to Kaui even more wonderful!
Lynda K. from Ballwing, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 Wow.... What a view!! Great location and quick access to the beach. Great accommodations for a large family. The favorite feature was just relaxing with a beverage on the deck just admiring the view.
Christopher F. from Rancho Mirage, California recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2011 We loved the vacation rental from Poipu365! We are always wary about booking something based on internet photos and website information, but this house is the real deal and we were delighted with the view, the house, and the amenities. The lap pool is much bigger than we expected and the upper level was more spacious than we expected.The view is truly spectacular - rainbows every day!We will definitely be back and rent this same house again if available!
A guest from Cupertino, California recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011 Nice home..well located close to beach and other activities. Home is well equipped and comfortable. Had a great time!
Lee F. from Wasington, DC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2011 Perfect: (1) Location (2-5 minutes to beach, Hyatt restaurants and spa, Brennecke's Beach House, Poipu Shopping Center, other great restaurants like Roy's, Red Salt, 5-10 minutes to Meriman's and the Beach House restaurants and Koloa Town, only 35-45 minutes to airport; (2) View from the highest point in the area(Poipu and Brennecke beaches, Spouting Horn, Ni'ihau, sunsets, moonsets, mountains, dolphins and whales, endless blue water, sound of the surf; (3) house setup (great open upstairs living/dinning/kitchen/deck layout and furnishings, downstairs bedrooms, pool and hot tub. Amazing!
