Elbert Gillin, a civil engineer with the Koloa Sugar Plantation, fell in love with the isolated Mahaulepu Valley and its long stretches of untouched beaches while surveying the area. He acquired a 3/4- acre parcel on the ocean front and pioneered the area by trucking a surplus officer's quarters from World War II to the site. This original beach house was later expanded, and the Gillins lived in the charming home for over 50 years.
After hurricane Iniki claimed the cottage in 1992, the family replaced it with a house reminiscent in design, but more reflective of modern living. The present house features a private water system, electricity, cellular telephone, TV/VCR, dishwasher, and other standard appliances. The open, casual design and private setting remain its most endearing qualities.
E komo mai - welcome! Come and see why this hideaway has been enjoyed by the Gillin family for four generations. See why the island residents treasure this valley - one of the last untouched coastlines on the south shore. Walk the waterline, explore the reefs, swim in the lagoon. Snorkel, surf, windsurf, hike or simply relax on the porch. Experience Kaua'i at its finest.
In addition to the beach sports listed above, 2 golf courses, resort tennis facilities, horseback riding stables, fine restaurants, shopping and services are just minutes away in Poipu and historic Koloa Town.
