About Shelley Griffin
I work for the owners of the home and have managed this property since 2008. I have established great friendships with many local islanders and I have had the opportunity to experience many of the outdoor adventures that Kauai has to offer.
Why Shelley Griffin chose Poipu
The location near Baby Beach in one of the best neighborhoods on the island make this home a perfect choice for your vacation. The home is very spacious inside and out and perfect for a large family. The home comes stocked with everything needed to feel like you are at home including BBQ for outdoor cookouts, kitchenware, beach towels, toys, mats, chairs, coolers, fins and even bicycles for our guests to use. The large backyard and surrounding property makes this a quiet and private setting with the Aloha spirit.
What makes this House unique
We provide a pack-n-play and high chair for small children as well as plenty of beach toys. The downstairs living area provides a private space for the grandparents while still being part of the rest of the house upstairs. This is a great house for a large family vacation. Plenty of space for everyone to have room to breath. You won't want to leave once you visit this home.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Overall good but needs maintenance.
Overall, we enjoyed our family vacation here.
What I liked the most was the layout of the house. It was just perfect to us. Small kids who need a nap and early bed time stayed on the first floor, away from the noise on upstair. And it was a little cooler than the 2nd floor so that they were able to sleep around lunch time without A/C. We did BBQ on a balcony and sunset was beautiful. Kitchen was remodeled and clean with lots of dishes, cups, utensils, etc. Communication with a property manager was easy, prompt, and informative. Overall, it was a good stay.
Two things I did not like about the house were a washing machine and bugs.
Because there were small kids, I had to use a washing machine and it was really dirty: mold was visible and it smelled awful. I wanted to buy my own detergent for mold, but Lung's drug did not have it. My husband rubbed it with a regular laundry detergent and I had to cycle the machine couple of times before I use it. All the towels at the house smelled awful and I found out that it was because of that washing machine.
And every night at a bathroom on the first floor, I encountered a cockroach. It was really unfortunate. I am not sure if this house needs a pest control or cockroaches are just everywhere in Kauai. Luckily, they were not found on the 2nd floor where my parents and my cousins stayed. I did not tell them about it, so, other family members were all happy about the house.
Kauai was humid and hot when we stayed there on May and staying at the house without A/C was not easy. We cooked every dinner and got sweaty easily. I heard that many homes at Kauai don't have A/C. So, I don't complain, but if there was A/C it would have been a lot better.
Will do it again next year
Location, quality of accommodation, service and cleanliness are all first class. 5 to 8 minute walk to high end shopping center with great dining and drinking venues (amazing happy hour options). Koloa shops and restaurants 10 minute drive. 5 minutes to Baby Beach even with umbrellas, towels, toys and two year old in tow. Good surfing beach a bit further along. Everything works(wifi, tvs, appliances etc) washer/dryer combo big enough to handle daily wash for 10+. I felt really comfortable quietly sitting on deck at midnight just listening to waves. All my queries and questions were responded to quickly. I really don’t have a reason not to go back.
Hale Beach Inn
This home was perfect for our family of 7. Grandparents, children and grandchildren. This home had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Baby beach was just right for our young ones to snorkeling and just a short walk from the house. A quiet, peaceful neighborhood just a short drive to shops, great food and points of interest to explore. What a lovely home to vacation in and explore Kauai. Mahalo!
Beautiful home was well stocked with room for 7 adults and two small children. Location was the best and weather was wonderful. Owner checked in on us. 👍 Loved Baby’s Beach just a quick walk down street, closeness of quaint shopping center and many other places to explore.
Roomy house in a great spot a little more than a mile west of Poipu Beach.
Our group of 10 was quite comfortable in Hale Beach House for our ten day stay in Poipu. Accommodations were just right for our 3 couples, with a separate bedroom for each. Our group's 6 and 4 year-olds shared a 4th bedroom with single beds, our 13 year-old had a hide-a-bed in the separate downstairs area, and our 2 year-old used a pack and play. The kids spent numerous hours at nearby very safe baby beach, and we observed several sunsets from there.
The house is walking distance from a shopping area with many restaurant options.
I'd recommend the house for any large group, especially one with young children.
Perfect for us
Shelley was great to work with, handled all my questions and messages timely. We took our family, all enjoyed the house very much. I didnt expect a few niceties, such as a can of coffee in the cupboard, soap in the bathrooms. The house is stocked with beach stuff. The backyard is on a fairly busy street but it was ok.we selected this house because it was so close to baby beach, where we walked to get married. It was perfect, we loved our stay and would go back in a heart beat.
Located in Sunny Poipu within steps of Baby Beach just off Lawai Road. We are a short drive from the town of Koloa where you will find quaint shops and a local grocery store. The best snorkeling beaches on the island are within walking distance along with the newly built Kukuiula Shopping Center. Just up the road and a wonderful morning walk away is the Spouting Horn where you can enjoy the early sunrise and see whales and sea turtles swimming by. Our home is located in one of the nicest neighborhoods on the island.
Other Activities: Snuba rental gear available at the end of the street off of Lawai Road.
