Our "Jewel on the Sea," luxury, beauty and comfort right on the ocean! Every time we walk into our Kauai oceanfront home, the expansive view of the ocean and lush coastline takes our breath away! Two of the best Kauai snorkeling beaches, a dive site, and three surfing spots are right out your door. A "hale honu" or "house of turtles," you will get to enjoy endangered sea turtles feeding below our lanai. In the late winter/spring you may even see them breeding. One of our guests, a past Hawaii resident, told us that he saw more turtles during his week long stay with us than during the twenty years that he lived in Hawaii. In the winter we see blowholes as humpback whales make their epic journey to give birth in the warm Hawaiian Pacific. We provide field glasses so you may see them breaching. During our very first trip to Kauai, we were told that the best island snorkeling was by the Beach House Restaurant and that is where we went every day, never dreaming that someday we would own a condo right at that very same special spot. Awarded as one of the best vacation rentals worldwide by TripAdvisor, our oceanfront "Jewel on the Sea" exceeds our dreams!
If you are on your honeymoon, wish to recapture the romance in your relationship or you just want to experience the awesome beauty and serenity of this "Jewel on the Sea" by yourself, with your family or friends, this is the ideal home for you to rent while vacationing on the Garden Island of Kauai.
In our completely private third floor home the only thing you hear is the crashing of the waves. As soon as you open the front door, your eyes go out to the ocean. You have unobstructed views from floor to ceiling windows in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, dining room and of course, the lanai.
Completely remodeled for the most discriminating guest, our home reflects the Hawaiian tropics. Beauty and comfort are our priority. Bamboo floors glisten in the light of the morning sunlight creating a peaceful, clean atmosphere. The rich, classic Italian Noccino marble shower with stone accents is a spa retreat; Iridescent Verdi Peacock Gold Brazilian Granite countertop in the kitchen and stainless steel appliances reflect the cool colors of the ocean. During our remodel, the walls were restructured so that the ocean breeze gets pulled throughout the condo, keeping you comfortably cool day and night. During the summer sometimes we have to turn the fans off at night.
The ultra luxurious memory foam pillow-top king size bed is the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. We use silk filled cotton comforters covered by clean cotton duvets and add soft high count cotton sheets for extra cleanliness and softness. The chenille queen size pull-out couch has a five inch thick mattress (no bars or poking springs). Two Hawaiian style reclining chairs are perfect for laying back to watch waves, listen to CDs or watch cable TV. The hand carved dining room table with rattan chairs is your exclusive seat to spot playful spinner dolphins. Artwork reflects the lushness and peace of Kauai. We love the arts and in the condo is original artwork on glass by renown abstract artist, Fred Gemmell and Kauai pastel artist, Helen Turner. Relax on the lanai as the waves roll under and past, day and night. Seeing a rainbow or the moon shimmering over the water will create lifetime memories. The "Aloha Spirit" truly exists on the island of Kauai and we have done our best to bring this spirit into our home. In addition we send all of our guests information about Kauai to make your trip as easy and stress-free as possible. I will help you find the most beautiful and secluded beaches and mountains on the island and give you travel tips. Cultures merge in this gorgeous tropical island which results in delicious local cuisine that is exotic, fresh and healthy, and I will provide information to you so that you can affordably experience its many tastes. We look forward to hearing from you!

Sometimes VRBO’s don’t live up to their descriptions on the website and so we were very pleasantly surprised when Molla’s condo exceeded our expectations. The cozy and beautifully-appointed living room opens onto a deck with a sweeping view of the Pacific Ocean. The lovely murmur of lightly-breaking ocean waves not only lulled me to sleep every night but transformed my overworked nerves into a state of tranquility from the moment I arose each morning. Right outside, sea turtles bob up and down near the shoreline and just a few yards away, there are fantastic areas in which to snorkel and hike. Located in a strategic area in Poipu, we were close to local restaurants (also, the best one in town, “The Beach House,”) and boutique shops, but far enough away to feel like we had the island to ourselves. Also, we were just a few miles away from Waimea Canyon (what Mark Twain called the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,”) and to Lihue Airport which offers breathtaking helicopter trips around the island. It is close to the departure point for catamaran tours to the Napali Coast too but we couldn’t fit that into our schedule on this trip (next time!). The condo kitchen is well-stocked with all the necessary and up-to-date equipment, there is a nice-sized flat screen television and the condo’s neighbors were very quiet—we never heard a peep out of anyone. We were assured that if we did encounter any unforeseen problem (which we did not), Molla or the property manager, Albert, would take care of it. We have traveled to many countries on different continents, but I have to say, Molla’s condo in Poipu ranks as one of our most relaxing and memorable vacations. Thank you Molla for a lovely trip!

We stayed here in Feb and the location was great, right on the ocean,the views were fabulous and I loved the sound of the waves going to sleep.
Molla was a joy to work with, answered every e-mail, sent a incredible amount of information about the island, where to go, favorite spots, car rental info, farmers market, etc, she even e-mailed us while we were there to see how things were going and if we needed anything.
The condo had everything you needed, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers for packing your lunches to head out for a great day exploring.
Condo was clean and property was immaculate, always someone there cleaning and looking after the grounds.
We had a fantastic time and would definitely would return.
Thanks Molla for sharing your home with us and have a great time in April.
Stayed February 2015, traveled as a couple

Additional Location Information
Oceanfront with snorkeling, surfing and diving right on the property. Watch turtles feed from the lanai year round and whales in winter. 5 star restaurant next door, the Beach House, rated best restaurant on Kauai for the last 14 years. Walking distance to restaurants, galleries and gourmet farmer's market at Kukuiula. About a mile from Spouting Horn and the National Tropical Botanical Gardens (one of two gardens in the country to receive National designation). A short walk to the little boat harbor. Behind us is Prince Kuhio park, approximately 3-acres containing the sacred Hoai Heiau, an ancient fishpond, and the Prince Kuhio Monument commemorating the birthplace of Prince Kuhio Kalanianaole, the last royal heir to the Hawaiian throne. No one can ever build on a heiau so we will always have this park behind our building which is filled with Plumeria, mango and papaya trees. Central for touring the entire island. Kauai is known for its miles of beaches and diverse topography and mini climate zones. Our beaches at home offer the best snorkeling on the island and nearby are spectacular secluded beach wilderness areas that you will want to return to again and again, or chose the resort beaches known for its golden sand.
Your vacation home is private, quiet, where the waves roll under and past the lanai. Due to how the roads are built, you are centrally location for exploring the entire island. Poipu is known for its perfect climate year round. Wonderful adventures are within walking distance (see one the world's great bonsai collections in our neighbor's yard). Perfection!
