About the property

GREAT Koloa/Poipu side of the island location for GREAT YEAR ROUND weather!

Update - In an effort to be compliant with the laws of the County of Kauai. We will only accept work groups and long terms stays. Pls contact me if you have any questions.

Chateau Relaxo is a VERY PRIVATE 2 house compound. They are configured so that a group can rent 2, 4, or 6 bedrooms. 'White Estate Fencing' surrounds the whole compound. And, there is a fence between the 2 houses for privacy when needed. The houses are in a very beautiful setting, with the natural beauty of Kauai. Hibiscus, Birds of Paradise, and Heliconia grow on the property.

CR1, the main house with the pool 4 bedrooms, .CR2, the duplex next door has 2 more bedrooms that can be added for a total of 6. The Compound is perfect for groups coming to Kauai for work. Located very close to all the Poipu/Southside restaurants and stores. The family/entertainment room, pool, and backyard area make for relaxing when the work day is over.

We would love to add you to your company to our growing list of companies who come to Kauai for work

About The Owner

I have lived full time or part time on Kauai for 30+ years. Full time again for the past 6 years. I travel a great deal and it is always nice knowing that when the job is done, I am returning to the Garden Island. I fell in love with Kauai in the 70's and made a goal of living here then!!

I take pride in providing an affordable and comfortable place for work groups and long term guests to visit the wonderful 'Garden Island' of Kauai.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 1989

Why The Owner chose Kauai

I bought this property because it was close to the Koloa/Poipu Beach area, but far enough away TOO!! Ha ha

There are only a few other properties that I know of on the Poipu side of Kauai with 6 bedrooms and a pool in one location and the prices are substantially higher!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Bringing people together to ONE location was my goal when looking for this property years ago. .And a GREAT location that is close to everything but still VERY private!

Excellent! 4.4/5 -
(12 traveller reviews)

average rating of 4.4166665 based on 12 reviews

Perfect for our spring break with two families who shared CR1.

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome! And affordable, which we completely appreciate since most things on the island are pretty expensive. I read somewhere that the owners try to keep it affordable so that families can enjoy their Kauai visit and I agree, so thank you!! The house had more than everything we needed. A few days were chilly and we kept busy with a hike and then just hanging out at the house playing basketball, ping pong and other games that were there. We so much appreciated the beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, boogie boards, toys, etc. It really makes a difference, and now that I know all of that is there, I'd go back again. House was clean, it is older, but it really doesn't matter since it is clean and has everything that you would need. Having a pool was a huge hit. The big sliding doors opening to the beautiful yard and pool is really nice. The kids found lizards in the backyard. The house is close to the road and you can hear the cars but each room has a big fan and we would just run that at night and couldn't hear a thing. Thank you so much Gary and crew for everything. We had an absolutely wonderful holiday and will be back again!

Chateau not so relaxo

  • 2 of 5

The size of this rental was one of the main reasons that we booked, but we regretted the choice. While it advertises itself as a beach house, the cleanliness and general state of the house (houses actually - there is a Chateau Relaxo 1 and Chateau Relaxo 2) left much to be desired. The pool was dirty and cold - not at all useable. The carpets were filthy, to the point that walking barefoot for a couple minutes left your feet black. When this was brought up to the general manager (at the same time as he was cleaning up a water spill from the bar fridge that broke down before we got there) he shrugged it off saying that they are cleaned before every rental, but that they need to be replaced. The supplied playpen and highchair were filthy, including the presence of mold. The windows and doors are all in bad condition and need to be replaced. That being said, the rental does have a lot of board games, books and toys for the family. The ability to have people in two separate houses on the same property is great for larger groups, but be aware that the house closest to the road gets quite noisy due to the constant traffic, neighbour's dogs and, in our case, due to the tenants below that were very loud, very late, very often, before sneaking out without paying (not the fault of the owner). Bottom line - for the price and the fact that it is not very close to much (towns or beach), I would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We never advertise as a beach house. It clearly states that on our site and I would never mislead anyone. Odd that they send this review now a year later. As for the carpets they have been replaced and she arrived during a very wet period. The previous guests did not observe the no shoes guidelines and therefore tracked in moisture and dirt. As for the pool, we have weekly service but when it is stormy this is what happens. I have been renting this property for 16 years now so I guess it is my turn to get an unhappy guest. However if they had tables any of this while they were staying we could have addressed all issues, ONE YEAR LATER!! Hmmmm

Lots of "ALOHA" here!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter decided to have her wedding reception at Chateau Relaxo for its location. It's located right between Waimea and Lihue. This worked out great for us and even for most of our guests from Kauai! From the moment we arrived we had an amazing stay here! When we arrived at the house there was many of Kauai's goodies waiting for us! A fresh pineapple, Kauai coffee, Kauai cookies, ect..! Not only in the main house but in the 2 other rentals as well! Our guest who stayed in the other rentals loved that and felt the Aloha Spirit immediately! This house has all you will need to stay on Kauai. The morning after our arrival, of course everyone wanted to hit the beach! This house had beach chairs! Beach towels! Boogie boards! Coolers, ect! We didn't need to buy anything! I'd like to add that the southside"s most popular beach, Poipu Beach Park is just minutes away! There's baby beach and one of the best snorkeling spots on the island! That morning we also had a visit from the property manager. He introduced himself and shared with us that he was available anytime. Chateau Relaxo turned out to be the best thing! Perfect for a reception! With 3 small ones under the age of 6 months and 3 other children, when they got tired we didn't have to worry about where to put them as the reception continued. All the children slept comfortable in the bedrooms! Sleeping soundly! This house had huge partitioned doors that slided together so we were able to keep the reception separated from the living quarters!

Owner's Response: Nice review to read! Mahalo! A large % of our guests are welding parties. The Compound sets up very well for meal times and smaller receptions. Come back when it is time to renew your vows! I take pride in providing an affordable place for large families as I remember what it was like when I would bring my family to Kauai before we moved here. Mahalo gk
