Garden Island Properties LLC is a family owned and operated Real Estate and Property Management business on the Island of Kauai in Hawaii.

The company was founded by Greg and Sue Strickland in 1992 and just a few months later, Hurricane Iniki hit Kauai when Greg was renovating the office. Sue took the business to their home temporarily, while Greg remodeled the office and the doors opened for business prior to the end of 1993.

Finding the best area to stay is really a matter of preference. Please look at the Kauai Visitors Bureau site for more info on Kauai.

Ocean currents can be strong; we recommend you visit Kauai beaches with lifeguards on site. Please refer to for beach information.

Due to Kauai being in the tropics, we do have sudden rain showers throughout the year; our “winter”, December – March tends to have more rain; again depending on what part of the island you’re staying at. Check out our Weather Page for more information.

Most of the homes in Hawaii are NOT air conditioned; so it is a matter of preference.

Like anywhere in the world, we recommend you use normal precautions while on vacation. Lock your rental car and accommodations at night and do not leave valuables visible in your rental vacation unit.
