About Santo & Hayley Giorgio

Santo C. Giorgio, born in Venice Beach, California, has been involved in the field of architecture for the past 14 years. He has been the draftsman and project manager for American architectural designer Gary Tobey since 2003 and currently runs their Hawaii office [Design Concepts Hawaii] on the North shore in Kilauea.

Hayley K. Giorgio [Ham Young], born in Ha’ena, Kaua’i, has worked in the field of interior design since 2007 and is the interior designer at Design Concepts Hawaii. She has studied at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Cal-State Fullerton.

"We love to have fun together and thrive off of the beauty Kauai feeds us. When we’re not in the field we’re either in the water or outside enjoying life."

Santo & Hayley Giorgio purchased this house in 2012

Why Santo & Hayley Giorgio chose Kauai

We love Poipu. Being in a local-family neighborhood, for us, has more heart and sincerity. You have the opportunity to really feel at home in a new place. And having been originally raised on the north shore, Kipuka Street has been a 'Hideaway' for us ;)

We enjoy the ocean, riding our bikes, eating really good food and relaxing... 10 of our favorite restaurants and majority of Poipu's beaches are within 2 miles from our house! Our enthusiasm might sound corny but we love it!

What makes this house unique

In our home we enjoy the modern design and the comfortable climate Poipu has to offer. Everything is within walking or biking distance and typically when the rest of the island is raining we're still in that sunny bubble. This home is perfect for family gatherings, a romantic couples getaway, and adult groups. During the day, the electricity we consume is being generated by the sun ;)

AND, all our hot water is made by that same solar energy too! Our intention is to be conscious and as involved as we can in using alternative forms of energy in order to preserve our environment and the Earth we are so grateful to be a part of.

The Poipu Hideaway has taken the step to making a difference.

Lovely home, well appointed, comfortable, safe community. Perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

It is a pleasure to recommend VRBO Property #410384 known as the Poipu Hideaway. We stayed there from May 4-13, 2017 and had a very positive experience. This home easily accommodated our group of 6 adults. It is a beautifully and thoughtfully designed home. The owners were kind and happy to accommodate our special requests. They were helpful and wanted us to be happy. We liked them very much.

Beds were comfortable, 3 private bathrooms had ample bathing features, the kitchen was generously stocked and a fun open environment to cook in. There is a nice gas grill near the kitchen. The dinning area is also fun, unique and very comfortable. We cooked nearly all our meals at home and had many happy dinners.

We found the location of the Poipu Hideaway to be a real plus. It was easy to get to the beach on foot, or to markets and restaurants by bike or car. This property is in a nice community of working families and we felt very safe here.

We highly recommend this property. Should you choose to rent it we hope you enjoy it and your time in Kauai as much as we did.

A very nice home within easy walking distance of Poipu Beach and shopping

  • 5 of 5

We brought our immediate family of 6 adults and three children to Kauai and stayed 10 days in this home in March & early April 2017. This was the third trip to Kauai for the wife and I in 10 years, and it was our second time staying in Poipu, so we were very familiar with the area.

This home is very well ventilated which is nice for the weather, but does make it noisy in the early morning when the neighbors drive to work or the garbage trucks service the area.. The home is well maintained by a repairman nearby who responds to any needs.

In conclusion, a very nice home offered by very friendly people in a prime area of Kauai.

Great house, feels very private even though it is in a neighborhood. Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious with an island feel, some neighbor noise, but Sara told us she would take care of if it was a problem.

Perfect home for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here. Sara, the property manager, was very friendly and was always available if I had any questions. The house was more than enough space for our family- 7 adults and a toddler. Baby gate and pack and play were provided upon request. It is a 5-10 minute walk to Poipu beach and a short drive to lots of shops. On our last day we got a lot of rain, so the pool table was perfect for that downtime. All in all- we absolutely loved the house!
