Better location: Our home is in Sunny Poipu. The best location on the island especially during the wintertime. It is less rain compare to Northshore. While it is pouring rain on Northshore, Poipu, Southshore is still sunny. This is the reason, Poipu is one of queen Emma’s vacation destinations. The Bird of Paradise home is within walking distance to Poipu beach park, Brennecke Beach, and Shipwreck beach. The Poipu beach park is the best beach on Kauai, great for snorkeling, surfing. Your little one will enjoy a small baby lagoon and playground. There are two lifeguard stations, outdoor showers, fountains, shelters, changing and toilet rooms. There are two large parking lots across the beach.
