It was really great staying at Ellie's Garden Suite. We had everything we needed and Ellie and her husband had lots of useful tips for us.
Hope we will meet again one day.
Thanks so much for everything!!! Aloha!
Ellie was very kind, generous, and hospitable to myself and my four other friends- I definitely recommend this space and will recommend it to all of my friends.
Ellie's Bamboo studio was everything that we could have asked for. Ellie is extremely warm and friendly and, from the moment we got there, made us feel right at home. She gave us some great tips -- restaurants, groceries, sights, etc. The studio was extremely spacious and comfortable, providing us with everything we needed, as well as being beautifully decorated and clean. We came in winter and were so happy to have chosen Kauai and stayed on the south side of the island. Ellie's studio is only a 10 minute walk from the beach, where we swam in beautiful turquoise water with sea turtles. There were also a fantastic selection of nice restaurants in Po'ipu and Koloa. We were in perfect proximity to everything and were able to see the entire island during our week stay. I highly recommend Kauai and Ellie's home. Our trip could not have been better.
We came back from our vacation and feel we left our heart in beautiful Kauai. Ellie's service as our host added an unforgettable touch during our first hawaii trip. She greeted us after we arrived, and provided indispensable help guiding our itinerary. She dropped off maps and even let me borrow some clothes from her family because I forgot to pack my shorts :) Ellie upgraded us to another house that's brand new and closer to the beach. The people we met in the neighborhood are super nice and friendly and we enjoyed Poipu area immensely. Overall we are so impressed with her service and the awesome community of Airbnb! Thank you Ellie and we'll be back!
Ellie was very accommodating (email hidden)e arranged airport pickups for both of us even though my flight was delayed and we arrived separately. We were upgraded to the Koloa House for free so I cannot speak for the Bamboo Studio.
The Koloa House was great! It was clean, large, and lovely. It had everything we could want. We could walk around Koloa town every day and it was around 5 mins to drive to Poipu. Very well appointed, the cable TV with DVD player was great on lazy days. Would stay again!

We absolutely loved our stay in Poipu! Ellie was wonderful, and even helped out getting us a pizza in (what felt like) the middle of the night.
We highly recommend the area, and Ellie as the host. This was our first dealing with airbnb, and I'm sold! Perfect for travel with young kids.
Here we go into raptures! Ellie and Brat it was gorgeous, so we would have stayed longer still like. Ellie's Poipu Garden, the warmth of the little things, the nice conversations and the tips of Brat has made great south Kauai with the highlight of our honeymoon. Both of you thanks for everything! Since you’re not just ne Accommodation!
We loved staying at the Poipu Garden Suite! I stayed there in November with my husband and 22 month old son. First, the suite itself is perfect. There is a separate bedroom with a large closet. Ellie was kind enough to supply a pack 'n play when she found out we were traveling with our toddler. The kitchen is a mini-kitchen but has a fridge, hotplate and outdoor sink and more than met the needs for breakfast, a packed lunch and dinner for our family. We also loved the outdoor space- our son could wander around and look at the fabulous rock garden. The suite is located on a quite cul-de-sac and was very peaceful and a great way to get away from it all. It's a short drive (3 mins?) to poipu beach and very close to Kaloa where there are two grocery stores. Also close to Living Foods which has a great Deli selection.
Finally, Ellie and her husband Brett were wonderful hosts. Our normally shy son loved Brett and loved showing him the various rocks he found in his garden. Brett was nice enough to humor him! Ellie was so warm and gracious. You can tell that they are family oriented and very welcoming. We are now suffering post-Kauai withdrawl and wish we were still at the Garden Suite!
It was wonderful to meet Ellie, Bret and their daughters. There were our first guests from Hawaii and it was great to here about their way of life.
The Barn was left very tidy with everything in its place. We can highly reccomend them as guests and hope to see them again either in Ireland or Hawaii.
Spending a week in one of Ellie's apartments (spring 2013), we've got to know her as a person who takes great CARE of her clients. Helping us with personal hints about the island (from restaurants to grocery stores, from road trips to vista points, from sports to places to watch a sunset). Besides that, the apartment was extremely well kept, super clean and very well equipped.
Ellie made our stay in beautiful Kauai even better.
Our 2 week stay at Ellie's was perfect. Ellie was very warm, helpful and friendly. Her place had everything we needed and super clean! When we go back to Kauai, we will definitely stay with her again.
It is a pleasure to write this reference for Ellie, she has the highest integrity and a tremendous warmth.
