The 'Romance Cottage' at Poipu Sands is a stand-alone unit, with No Neighbors above or on any side. It enjoys much of the privacy that a single house offers, but it shares in the all the amenities offered by Poipu Sands and the Poipu Kai Resort, such as pools and tennis courts. It is a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) down the path to Shipwreck Beach and the Grand Hyatt. The Heated Pool is directly in front of the unit, but far enough as to not be any distraction. The BBQ is also in this area, making pool side dinners possible. This is the best pool on the island, and is seldom crowded, as there are several pools available within the Poipu Kai Resort complex.
You can literally walk anywhere. A 5 minute walk along a shore trail takes you to a vantage point over the ocean, where you can watch numerous turtles play in the surf, and you can also be in the prime spot for sunset. Walk to the Hyatt to enjoy one of their fantastic restaurants, or a luau.
Several walking paths within the resort will take you to other pools and tennis courts, and down to Brennecke Beach. What a spot! Go a little further to one of the island's best beach destinations, Poipu Beach Park. Poipu Beach was named America's Best Beach by The Travel Channel, ranking top among the 10 'best' beaches selected nationwide. This beach is a series of golden sand crescents, strung together where beach-goers will find snorkeling, swimming, a natural ocean wading pool, boogie-boarding and surfing.
Back at the cottage, you will find windows on all 4 sides, allowing the cooling trade winds to pass through. This is a deluxe property, with furniture from Tommy Bahama and Ratana. The carpets are new, the upholstery was just replaced, and the kitchen is more than you could hope for. Here you will find plenty of cabinet space, premium appliances, granite counters, and all the kitchen tools and small appliances to enjoy meals right at home. The large covered lanai provides a great place to relax and enjoy friends, or a great book.
There are two bedrooms, one with a king bed and bath, and the other has twins that can be made into a king bed as well, upon request. It has an adjacent bath, with tub and shower.
There is a laundry, so you don't need to bring all that luggage and pay extra baggage fees! Unlike some of the units at Poipu Sands, you can park right in front, making it a short walk for groceries and your luggage.
There is a large desk and area to work on a computer, if you wish to do business during your stay. If you just want to keep in touch with your friends and family back home, there is wireless high speed internet, allowing you to surf the net from the lanai or the bedroom. There is a high definition 47' flat screen TV, and a surround sound stereo, in the living room. The Romance Cottage is stocked with books, games, DVD’s, music CD’s, beach gear and lots of aloha – totally turnkey. The only thing missing is you in your island paradise home away from home!
This is the way to go and maximize your vacation experience. The convenience of a resort, with the privacy of a house. You shouldn't have to settle for anything less, and It Doesn't Have To Cost More!

My family and I stayed at Poipou Sands, #621 for one glorious week in July. We found this second story "stand alone" unit absolutely charming. The location is stellar and could not be better situated for the sights and sounds of my favorite Hawaiian island, Kauai. Located in Poipu, my favorite part of Kauai, this unit has everything a family or couple could ask for. There are windows on all sides and a fabulous lanai running along the front. The breezes are heavenly. The beds and couches are very comfortable and luxurious. There are two full bathrooms so there is no fighting for showers. The kitchen is fully equipped, beautiful and very functional. We enjoyed many meals there and saved our vacation funds for one meal out each day. My children especially enjoyed the upgraded audio visual features, pools and the beach. The pools were well maintained, large and good for fun and lap swimming. The beach was but minutes away by foot. Me, I especially loved the comfy chairs which were perfect for relaxing and reading. In sum, the attention to detail in this unit is evident everywhere. I would highly recommend this "bit of paradise" to anyone interested in a top notch unit at a reasonable price.
