It is a beautiful space, very private and quiet, but filled with life. The building has only three units in it and is separated from all the others. As you walk in the front door you look through sliding glass doors to a wooded canyon.
This is a beautiful space, very private and quiet, but filled with life. We are right on a wooded gulch with lots of fruit trees. So the song birds love the area. I am a landscaper, and love plants, so there are potted plants all around the place, both inside and out--many of them are flowering!
There are two lanais to hang out on, depending upon the time of day and your desire for sun or shade. The place is in the trees so it stays cool, even in summer. There are fans in every room and a very nice breeze all year long.
The space is actually a 1500 square-foot 3-bed 2-bath home, so it is very spacious, with a large living/dining room and nice workable kitchen. But when I rent it as a 1 bed, 1 bath I close off two bedrooms and a bath. So you will have the whole living area, including kitchen, dining room, and living room.
It is fully equipped with everything you can think of including beach towels, chairs, umbrella, and a hair dryer.
There is a pool and tennis court, with basketball hoops, on the property, and a large lawn area for all kinds of games.
There is a balcony overlooking the jungle and a nice outdoor patio, both perfect for dining or just listening to the birds. It is a beautiful spot.
Everyone who stays here loves it and often asks to return.
It is centrally located, close to two outstanding beach parks--Poipu and Salt Ponds. One is good for wading and easy swimming, the other has surfing and snorkeling. We are also very close to a beautiful 9-hole golf course.
The town, a mile away, has restaurants, shops, convenience stores, medical and dental facilities.
I have lived in Hawaii for 33 years, and love to share my special places with guests.

Interaction with Guests
As much as they want. I am a great local resource
A safe place to be--warm friendly residents who watch out for each other. Not a resort setting, this is a community.
Rent your own car. Kauai does not have convenient public transportation yet.

Maureen was warm and welcoming when we arrived. Her rental felt much like a home, with the added extra comforts of hotel soaps and shampoos and lots of extra towels.
Nicole and Teddy enjoyed your place. Thank you for providing such a warm comfortable place. They highly recommended it to all of our guests here.
Will definitely send more guests your way
Staying at Maureen's condo was delightful! All was as described: clean, comfortable, and very quiet, (roosters aside). As it was close to both Poipu. Beach and the airport, we were able to quickly access both. Maureen stopped in a couple times to make sure all was well. She is warm and helpful. The use of her beach chairs was an additional plus. I highly recommend a stay at Maureen's. I would gladly book with Maureen again!
Great location, in the middle of the forest. Very quiet and comfortable. Maureen is a great host, has provided everything we need for our stay. Everything described in the annonce was available. We will for sure come back and recommend to our friends this appartment.
We really enjoyed our stay in Maureen´s house in Kauai! The house is huge and has all the amenities needed, and we really liked the location in a more remote and quiet neighborhood, but still close to Po'ipu and the South Shore. Maureen was a great host, helping us to get settled and giving tips about the area and the island - she even stopped by with a little gift on Christmas! We definitely can recommend this place to others wanting to explore Kauai!
A very nice, cozy, comfortable and calm lodge - even the roosters were discreet.
It was a perfect starting point to both sides of this magnificent island.
A nice 9-wholes golf course lies in walkable distance and is easy to play and a real bargain (9 $).
Our very friendly host lived next door.
We really enjoyed our 8-days-stay and would warmly recommend this accomodation.
Stayed with Maureen for 3 weeks and was a wonderful experience. The condo had everything I needed. Grill, all the "beach stuff" and was very comfortable. The condo is located so that it is equal to the canyon and the north shore. Maureen is engaging, friendly and has a wealth of knowledge that she is eager to share.
for a short or long stay this is a great choice!!
