We just spent a great week and a half at Hideaway Cove Villas, and are already looking forward to our next trip there. Herb and Gale are the consumate host and hostess, responding to our every need, and even to some we didn't know we had! Gale booked us a zipline tour, a kayak trip, and paddle board lessons - all with individuals or companies that customized their services to our groups' needs. The Oceanview Villa was perfectly appointed and comfortably accommodated our group. We enjoyed many beautiful sunsets from the lanai, as well as dinners. Cooking was a joy as the kitchen had everything you could possibly need, including sharp knives!!!!! We were greeted with fresh juice and chilled glasses, and had all our snorkel gear and boogie boards there waiting - all we had to do was enjoy :-) Plus, the onsite laundry meant we could travel lighter and wash clothes as we went. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: We enjoyed being in an upstairs unit - great views.

Jeff and Susan are returning guests and we're always happy to see them. They brought their family with them this time so we got to meet some new future guests. Our 2300 sq. ft. Oceanview Three Bedroom Two Bath worked out perfectly for their group of six. We can't wait to see you again, so start planning your 2013 trip!

Aloha,
Herb and Gale

Our adult family of 6 spent 10 blissful days at Hideaway Cove in the 2nd floor Oceanview Villa. As our 10 day stay counted down, all agreed that it was going to be hard to leave. Our unit was spacious and beautifully appointed with comfortable and stylish furniture and island inspired, sophisticated decorations. The kitchen and dining areas (inside and out) were so inviting that we rarely ate out in the evening. It is a two block walk to the beaches of Poipu and could not have been more convenient. Our hosts, Herb and Gale, made everything simple as they provided high quality snorkeling gear, boogie boards and beach chairs as well as a cooler for the days on the beach. They have thought of everything. Gale's many years of island experience enabled her to book the best in the myriad of island choices of zip lining, stand up paddling and kayak choices. All of us are plotting our return to this paradise. Beautiful locations, suites, grounds and people!

My father died, literally, the day before we were to check in. Herb and Gale offered us a modest discount on a rebooking, but were insistent on keeping our $2500 according to their inflexible cancellation policy.

It would be advisable to consider trip insurance a necessary part of the trip, since compassion is clearly not a part of their business model.

We stayed with them once before, and had a wonderful time. The dolphin suite had AC, was very comfortable. We were sure and stop by Costco or Wal-Mart on the way from the airport to save lots of money from eating out.

The only remotely negative thing I have to say about our stay was that the snorkels did not have nose valves. That's pretty good.

We were excited about making another trip, but had to cancel without a refund. We will not be staying with them again.

Room Tip: Dolphin suite (really only one big room) was very nice. We had not problems with neighbor noise.

It is very painful for us to lose a loyal customer under these circumstances. As small business owners, it is impossible for us to take a loss every time one of our guests suffers misfortune. That’s why our cancellation policy is clearly stated and we recommend in writing to every guest that they obtain trip cancellation insurance. Our deepest sympathies go out to this family.

My new husband and I spent our very short honeymoon at Hideaway Cove in Poipu. Herb and Gale had our suite, the Coral Villa (1 bedroom), all set for our arrival. With guidebooks on things to do, a welcome note to have us begin our stay, a Romantic Music CD awaiting to be played in the CD player,delicious juice in the fridge, and the lovely Champagne awaiting our celebration into marriage, they thought of everything! We unfortunately did not get to meet Herb and Gale as they were on their vacation at the time, but felt if we needed anything, we would not be forgotten. The gardens surrounding the suite are lush and tropical - we saw a gardener there almost everyday! It definitely felt like an oasis after spending all day being tourists and going around the island. The suite was clean and comfortable, and the lanai was stocked with a table to sit outside and enjoy the tropical breeze, along with beach chairs and a cooler for the time not spent there. It was definitely hard to leave.

Room Tip: Our suite, the Coral Villa, was private and quiet.

Stayed in the Beachcomber studio in 10/11. And I still often think about how great the stay was (it's now 3/12). :)
Excellent inn. Great location. Mellow feel. Quiet street. High-end fixtures from top to bottom. The bed is so plush, the kitchen is well-appointed, bathroom and its fluffy towels and range of lotion and shampoos were great. That check-in juice is awesome! Seriously delish.
Wish we could have stayed longer and would love to have met Herb and Gale = they seem like the kind of people you want to hang out with, they did such a great job making the HC feel like a home.
The common laundry area was a great plus & the newer machines cleaned your clothes in no time. Parking in front was perfect. All the amenities you could ever need.
The only thing I might mention was that there was a large, older, wooden bureau in our walk-in closet that took up a lot of space and made it slightly awkward to maneuver around. Maybe an inexpensive, built-in, stacked shelving unit on the hanging side could open the closet up a little more and allow for a small bench for sorting and packing = same storage for less space and a more open feel.
We'll be back for sure. HC is paradise in paradise. Mahalo.

We just returned( Feb.10 to the 18th) from staying at the Hide away cove the dolphin Studio, which is a wonderful. When we arrived there was a note from Gale and Herb inviting us to our new place.The tropical juice in the fridge was so refreshing. The bed was so comfortable, the place so clean and everything you could want to enjoy your holiday. The utensils stocked in the kitchen had everything you need to cook a great meal. The bbq on the lanai was clean and if you ran out of propane there was extra tanks. We didn't use Gale's service as Kauai was our last week and we only wanted to go to the beach which was 5 min walk. The beach chair and coolers supplied along with ice packs was an extra we didn't
expect. We will return again as we loved this place. Would like a one bedroom as it just gives you a little more space. Thanks Gale and Herb for this wonderful service you supply.

Hideaway Cove was amazing , I'm ready to move to Poipu. We stayed in the Seabreeze two bedroom, two bath with an ocean view and we loved it, from the moment we walked in. The place was huge, the balcony very large with large ocean views from everywhere, hardwood floors, HDTV in living room, private parking place right next to unit, and most importantly was the hot tub with an ocean view. Were else can you enjoy a private 100 degree maintained hot tub overlooking the ocean, with jets the massage your every body part after a long day of adventure. We loved the full kitchen to cook in and the stainless steel barbecue on the covered lanai with a view, after a week on the island its nice to grill up some of your own locally bought food. The location was very convenient to the beach and shops and anything else you can think of. This was not our first time staying at Hideaway Cove and will definitely not be the last, we are already planning another trip and planning to sat at Hideaway Cove in 2012.

Room Tip: The Seabreeze two bedroom, two bath is amazing with an ocean view and jacuzzi.
