We first visited Poipu Kai in 1985. We have stayed at several places in Kauai and liked the Maunaloha section of Poipu Kai the most. We first saw our vacation home in 1999 at the invitation of the prior owner, and we rented it several times before we bought it. It is in the most spacious location of the most spacious condominium development, opening onto a lovely sweeping expanse of grass and tropical plantings, with a view of sunsets over Brennecke's Beach. (Our unit is close to the beach end of the large open area of the Poipu Kai resort shown on the Google map.) When we are more fully retired we plan to spend several months a year in this paradise. Please read our guest reviews to better understand why we love this unit so much. It is truly a unique and exquisite place. Very sincerely, Bob and Laura Venning

Bob Venning purchased this condo in 2007

The Manualoha section of Poipu Kai is a uniquely open and spacious development, with ample grass and our building has exceptionally broad exposures of grass and lovely landscaping leading to the beach. It is unlike any other condominium development we have seen on Kauai, with lovely plantings, finely maintained grounds and with nine tennis courts and ample swimming facilities.

A few steps to the sparkling private pool for Manualoha residents and only a few more steps to the beach. We often stop off at the Manualoha pool after snorkeling at the beach-- a quick fresh water shower a dip, and a rest in a chaise lounge overlooking the beach before enjoying some time on the lanai at our condominium!

Best condo I have ever stayed in in my 45 years of coming to Poipu!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
I came. It was fabulous weather the entire time and the girls were at Brenneke's Beach body surfing and boogie boarding all day every day.
The condo itself is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly want or need. The owner has carefully put little instructions everywhere about the use and operation of each appliance so there is no doubt about how to use it. The kitchen is truly a chef's kitchen with plenty of silverware, table service, appliances and anything you might want. The beds are extremely comfortable. I care about that because I have had 5 spine fusions and am like the princess and the pea! I never had a backache after sleeping. What a relief! All the furniture is extremely comfortable. I also appreciated all the clean towels that were available as 4 women shower very often! We tried to leave the condo almost as we found it and washed all the towels and put them away before we left. The kitchen was left in immaculate shape too. Having owned a condo there myself, I know that it is a welcome gesture because when the cleaning person arrives, she would need to be there all day washing and drying all the sheets and towels.
I taught the girls how to play dominos and they played into the wee hours of the night every night.
We went to the Tidepools Restaurant at the Hyatt to celebrate my granddaughter's 19th birthday and it was exceptionally good in every way. Good service, excellent food, wonderful ambiance with koi fish swimming under the tables and lush foliage everywhere. This restaurant gets my 5 star rating.
I also liked the sleeping arrangements downstairs which was at least 10 degrees cooler than upstairs. I will definitely try to book this specific condo again.
Many thanks to the owner for all his thoughtfulness in preparing all the details that made our stay so user friendly. We loved it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! All true, we think, and we also agree about Tidepools Restaurant.

Super Relaxing Airy Retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 30, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We stayed here over winter break with our 2 kids-- what a lovely place to stay! After a week's visit we returned the rental car with 2/3 of the original tank of gas because the condo was so relaxing we didn't want to venture far. The living room is very comfortable for lounging and reading (or watching TV while your parents cook or drink wine on the balcony watching the sunset). There is a feeling of refreshing airiness from the terrific light, high ceilings and a lovely view. The white and ratan decor and beautiful original landscape artwork on the walls enhance this feeling. The kitchen provided all the basics and more (waffle iron!). Had breakfast on the lanai every day with fruit from the farmstand up the road.

The downstairs bedrooms were very comfortable and pleasantly cool-- our little one still naps, so that was quite a nice retreat during the heat of the day. There are two nice glass showers and we especially liked the big bathtub. Boogie boards and pool toys in the closet were nice to find. Lots of beach towels were provided. The walk down to Brenneke beach is two minutes, so it was really easy to go down there multiple times a day for boogie boarding or just to check out the ocean. Our 2 year old loved Poipu park and baby beach (another 2 minutes past Brenneke's). We found the big pool (with the hot tub) was better for meeting other families/kids, but the Manualoha pool has beautiful views.

Travelling in the tropics can be hard for our family because one of us has mold allergies, but we all felt great at Aloha Sands. We will definitely be back.

The condo is centrally located & allows for easy access to beaches, restaurants, and activities. The unit is very quiet despite being in a dense condo community.

Bob & Laura have provided movies (VHS & DVD, but not anything recent), games, & books if you need something to do inside. There are plenty of towels, pool & beach toys, dishes, etc to use during your stay. It was a treat to not have to rent boogie boards & chairs for the beach :-) The full-sized washer & dryer in the unit came in handy as well.

The kitchen is up-to-date & has all of the appliances you will need (I even found a waffle maker). However, you may want to check the cleanliness of some items - the blender was very filthy, & some of the dishes & flatware needed washing before we used them. Also, beware of the lower oven door!! The door opens all of the way to the ground, and it slammed down on my big toe joint. I thought it broke my toe, but instead it just left a nasty bruise. As for spices & condiments - there are some in the kitchen, but you will need to check them & fill in the gaps.

The bathrooms were clean, and stocked with hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, & body wash. Toilet paper was available, as was paper towel in the kitchen. The master shower has multiple shower head & body spray options.

The pool was clean & well-maintained, and it was never crowded when we used it. The paths throughout the condo complex are good for running & walking, & they get you wherever you want to go.

If you like to run, the condo gives you easy access to good options in Poipu/Koloa. I ran on Poipu Road, the Koloa Bypass, Weliweli, Hapa Road, down by the beaches and resorts, etc. Most people are friendly & pay attention, but I recommend wearing bright clothes & running opposite traffic just to be safe.

As for venturing out beyond Poipu/Koloa, it is easy to navigate the island for the most part. We went to the end of the road in both directions, & we enjoyed exploring. Waimea Canyons & Kokee state park are great (go all of the way to the end past Kalalau lookout). We visited the Russian Fort, Salt Pond beach, Hanapepe, & more on the west side. If you catch Hanalei & Princeville on a clear day, the north shore is beautiful. Check out the wet cave & dry cave while you're up there. We tried to visit the Kilauea lighthouse, but due to construction we were unable to go past the lookout.

Overall, it's a good unit/good location. Comfortable, clean, & cozy! We enjoyed Spring Break :)

Our stay at this unit was very nice. The few slight problems that arose were addressed by the owner promptly. This condo is very close to the beaches, pools, walking paths and makes the entire island very accessible from this location. Some deep cleaning would improve this unit to a five star position but overall it was very nice. Lots of beach toys, well equipped kitchen and now a new, much needed, dryer. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words, Sue. We will be there in a month and will have a deep cleaning done at a time which will not inconvenience our guests, and we also plan to replace the TV and entertainment console and some other items. Almost every guest has rated our place 5 Stars and we really want it to be unquestionably a "5 Star" experience!

My fiance and I just had a relaxing Kauai getaway and loved staying in this condo! The kitchen is open, beautiful and has lots of light. The living room is spacious with comfy leather furniture. There are spectacular views, both on the ground level and from the upstairs balcony.

It's a very short walk to the beach, so we went at least once every day. We also walked over to the Grand Hyatt for drinks and went on a couple of great nature hikes just past the hotel.

We will definitely stay here again and have already inspired another couple to go there with their two children early next year.
