The Property

Come and see why this hideaway has been enjoyed by the Gillin family for five generations and why the island residents treasure this valley - one of the last untouched coastlines on the south shore.

Snorkel, surf, wind or kite surf (Maha'ulepu Beach is well known as one of the island’s premier wind and kite surfing beaches), fish, hike, ride horseback through the valley to secret beaches or simply unplug and relax on the porch. 

And just minutes away in Po'ipu and Koloa Town, you'll find two golf courses, resort tennis facilities, coffee shops, fine restaurants, and shopping

FUN FACT: The Gillin Beach House is the ONLY home in the entire Maha'ulepu Valley.

What an incredible spot for a honeymoon! It couldn’t have been more peaceful or perfect! To wake up to beautiful sunrises and fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves! We are already planning our next trip back!
— Many thanks, Kerry and Dave Ruach
