About Ning Gulari
We are a family of four. Erdogan, Ning, Deniz and Bora Gulari. We live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Erdogan is a professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ning is a researcher working in the implantable devices research area. We hope blind can see and deaf can hear again. Bora is a graduate of the Aerospace Engineering Department and is a very accomplished sailor and spends most of his time sailing big boats. Deniz has just graduated from UM in Mechanical Engineering. We all live by 'be honest, work hard, play hard and enjoy life' Erdogan bought this Bird of Paradise Home in June 1992, a few months before the hurricane Iniki hit Kauai on September 11, 1992. At the time he was also the association president for the Makanui Condo Association and he came to the Island with the first flights from the mainland, bringing a generator along to power several of the neighboring homes. He also brought lots of tarpaulin (some of which you may still see in the garage) to distribute to neighbors and use in covering holes in the roof which we and the neighbors did get. We are planning to live in this home when we retire so we take care of it the best way we can and put all our effort and labor of love into it. We enjoy our vacations in Kauai and love to share the same experiences with you. We started managing Bird of Paradise home and Hawaiian Hibiscus vacation rental home ourselves with the help of Kay & Bill Oldham, in May 2006. Before that, the home was managed by a well-known management company with a nightly rate of $400-450* in 2005. We decided to take control after we found out that our management company actually charged 10-15% extra for our return guests who wanted to come back to Bird of Paradise home. We value our guests very much and want to remain friends and share our love of Kauai with them. We are pleased to offer our high-quality home to Kauai lovers at an affordable rental rate. Mahalo and enjoy our Beautiful Kauai Island
Ning Gulari purchased this House in 1982
Why Ning Gulari chose Poipu
After looking at all the other Hawaiian islands ( excluding Molokai) it became obvious to us Kauai was by far the most beautiful and had the most friendly locals. We like water sports, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling etc. and we also liked the green lace like mountains of Kauai. Poipu had both great mountain views, some of the best beaches on the island and great snorkeling and easy access to Mahalepu our favorite beach for windsurfing. Crestview is the best location in Poipu Kai. Our house has panoramic 270 degree views of the beautiful Hau'pu and Waimea mountain ranges great views of the sunrise in the morning. Our house is on the shoulder of the last active crater on Kauai and because of its high location nothing blocks this spectacular views!
What makes this House unique
Compare to our neighbors, we feel very fortunate that our Bird of Paradise home locates at the right angle to get the best Panoramic views of Poipu, Pu'u Wanawana crater, Ha'upu mountain range (black mountain), Sunrises and partial Ocean views! At night when you sleep with windows open, you will hear the sound of ocean waves in the distance. Our guest said the view from our Bird of Paradise home is " Views to die for " We love to lay on the chaise lounge, reading our favorite book, stay in the front lanai, watching coconut leaves swaying in the wind, seeing 270 degrees mountain to ocean view, every time we are here, we have to admit that we are in "Paradise"
