Owner Operated, retired, live in Lihue and love Kauai. Most weeks you will find me hiking the many hiking trails to enjoy the hidden beauty and views on this island. I also bike the Kapaa ocean view 7 1/2 mile bike trail once a week to soak in the beautiful coastal views of Kauai. You will fall in love with the beauty and healing spirit of this island.

Esther Mae Snader purchased this condo in 2013

When I decided to purchase a vacation rental property, I chose a property that is quiet, away from the noise of the pool, on the second floor for safety reasons, beautiful garden views and a view of the ocean. You are within walking distance of the beach, for swimming and snorkeling. Poipu is known as 'Sunny Poipu', perfect weather. You will fall in love with the Poipu area along with many other Poipu lovers. Before purchasing this property, I made sure the coastal breezes flowed through to provide a cool and comfortable living experience. You do not have to worry about a parking spot at the beach because of a 5 minute walk to the beach. Also within walking distance a beautiful walk along the ocean to Shipwreck beach, frequently spotting turtles off shore and occasionally you might be blessed to see a monk seal sunning on the beach. I have walked this trail many times and enjoy the spectacular views each and every time. Several restaurants are within walking distance, The Grand Hyatt Resorts provide a variety of restaurants and a luau experience along with other smaller restaurants which are also a unique eating experience. You will love the variety of food on the island of Kauai. You cannot visit Kauai without taking the 'aloha spirit' with you when you return home. Please come and enjoy my vacation home. I will try to make your experience to Kauai a memorable one.

Quiet, beautiful views, walkway to beach, walking beach trail close by, restaurants within walking distance. Come and enjoy.

My husband and I, and our two college-aged boys, had a fantastic time in Kauai. The accommodations were excellent as a launching pad for trips and adventures - we saw nearly the whole island. For any Bikram yogis out there, check out the Bikram studio in Kapaa, which was friendly and fantastic! We went twice. The condo was clean, cheerfully painted (love the colors!), and absolutely spacious enough for the four of us. The kitchen was unbelievably well equipped, and the grills outdoors were convenient. We ate out some, but mostly had many excellent meals at home. Esther was very responsive from our first telephone inquiry. The pool is small but clean and nice, and is around the other side of the building so you don't hear any noise from it. Having laundry facilities right in the unit was great. The many guidebooks about the island were a nice touch, as is the growing "library." The description and pictures give an accurate sense of the location of the property and beaches. Thank you so much for sharing your home. We had a wonderful time, would definitely recommend it to friends, and would very happily stay again in the future.

When we arrived, we were very pleased that the property was everything we had expected. The video on VRBO was extremely helpful. We felt at home the minute we walked in. We had everything we needed as far as amenities all the way from kitchen utensils to beach toys. Being from Texas, we were a little apprehensive about the lack of air conditioning, but we used the fans and were comfortable for the most part. Carrying our luggage up and down the stairs was a bit of a challenge, being in our sixties, but we made it work. The wagon came in very handy with our many trips to Costco. It is collapsible so we kept it in the trunk of our car. We didn't use the pool, as it was always crowded. The washer/dryer was a real perk which we appreciated. The beds were very comfortable and everything was very clean. We didn't need to use the upstairs room at all. We enjoyed waking up every morning to the sound of Palm trees rustling and birds singing. Occasional rains were beautiful and cooled us down. We saw a rainbow every day.
The 5-10 minute walk to the beach was beautiful and relaxing. We got to see a monk seal at Ke'e Beach. We frequented Kiokis for lunch and supper, as well as The Shrimp Station and the Puka Dogs were wonderful. Also Tahiti Nui and Bubbas Burgers. All were wonderful island cuisine. I highly recommend this condo! I would stay there on my next visit in a heartbeat.

A Convenient "Home away from Home"
  • 5 of 5
Excellent location, short walk to Poipu Beach and my conference at Grand Hyatt. It was nice to fall asleep listening to the waves crashing on the beach. Very convenient location for site seeing and getting around the island. The unit is not new, but well kept, very clean and has an open floor-plan with spacious rooms. Great place for kids! 2.5-Bathrooms made it easy for everyone to get ready for dinner after a long day of play. The loft has steep stairs, but a baby gate at the bottom was perfect for our very little ones (Grandma "got away" by sleeping upstairs in the loft, which has it's own 1/2 bath). Expansive kitchen, lots of counter space; many dishes, utensils, small kitchen appliances. We cooked most of our meals to save some money, so it was nice to have little things that were left in cabinets by the owner and other guests; like salt, cooking oil, some spices and other items that you don't want to buy an entire container for just a week. I'm sure these will vary based upon usage. (Many other places we stayed have empty cupboards when it comes to these things and you are expected to leave them empty). It was an EXCELLENT touch to have such items available! Owner lives on the island, so it was very nice to have her stop by to fix an issue with the Wi-Fi. She is accommodating and quite personable. There is a short walk between the unit and the nearest parking lot, but a small wagon was provided to hall things like groceries, an UNEXPECTED touch! The unit is very close to the pool, hot tub and grills. Poipu Beach was great for the little kids with an excellent, life-guarded, calm beach - even when the ocean waves were rough. The beach also includes a playground when the kids are tired of playing in the sand and water. For the older kids and adults, not far from the kids beach, is a great place to body surf. The owner has provided many different size boogie boards, sand buckets/shovels, a kite, lawn chairs, sand mats, Styrofoam cooler, snorkeling equipment, etc., in the lanai closet. This was also a nice surprise to have so many options. In the past we have purchased these items at Walmart (cheap) and left them behind at the beach for others to use. The complex also provides a car wash station to rinse off the sand from your rental vehicle at the end of your vacation. This was a GREAT place, GREAT owner and GREAT experience. We've previously rented similar places in Hawaii, but this is one of the best. We plan to stay here for our next trip to Kauai.

The condo was described as having an ocean view which turned out to be a speck of ocean in the far off distance barely visible through the trees. It was an upstairs unit which had a lot of sun coming in through the day. We had to pull the curtains every day to keep the unit from getting too hot. In the evenings it was especially warm which made cooking in the kitchen very uncomfortable. We also were hoping to be able to sit outside on the lanai to eat but there was just one small table with two very uncomfortable iron chairs.
The unit was clean and provided the basic necessities described in the listings description. The furnishings were basic and it could be a lovely unit with some updating.

Owner's Response: Mahalo! Taking the time out of your busy schedule to write a review is appreciated. We are always happy to hear that our unit is CLEAN and provides the necessities in renting a vacation home. I am truly sorry you were disappointed in the view of the ocean and the patio furniture. It does describe the ocean as a "SLIGHT VIEW" in the property description. Also the pictures do show just a small table with two chairs on the Lanai. There are extra lounge chairs and an area to eat by the pool and BBQ for those that enjoy eating out side and have a larger group of people. During the summer months it can get warmer depending on the trade winds. With the corner end unit, and ceiling fans usually the unit can be kept at a lower temperature if there is the slightest breeze.

The location was perfect for beach access and for proximity to the Kauai Marathon start/finish lines. The grounds are beautifully maintained and we really enjoyed the common areas, including the pools and barbeque areas.
