Poipu Condo Rental Photos and Description
1 BR/1.5 Bath - Sleeps Up To 4
We purchased this condo in April, 2013. We installed tile flooring throughout the unit including the lanai. We have purchased all new, very comfortable and updated furniture. There is new paint in the entire unit from floor to ceiling. This condominium has a large master bedroom with an en-suite master bath. Also has a half bath for convenience if you have extra guests. Plenty of closet space for you to unpack and feel at home. Our spacious lanai is an excellent place to kick back and enjoy your morning coffee or romantic dinner. We are located just steps from the ocean, famous Shipwrecks Beach and adjacent to the Kauai Grand Hyatt Resort and Spa.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Richard and I loved staying at your place and in Poipu! We had a ball. I am so glad we found your place online.
We had lovely weather (we weathered Hurricane Iselle in Volcano on the Big Island - scary at 4000 ft in the path of the storm!!), played tennis up at your courts, would stop by for a dip in the pool periodically, hiked the local trails. We walked to Poipu Beach (and drove once with your chairs and umbrella and our snorkel gear to snorkel). The ocean (on the south side of the island) always seemed rough to us, so we didn't do a lot of ocean swimming. Our last full day - Friday - we hiked/walked out to the Makauwahi Cave reserve and the cave was open for tours. We really enjoyed that.
We really did enjoy being so close to the Grand Hyatt - got in late on Saturday Aug 9 and walked to the Hyatt and had a quick, light dinner on the terrace overlooking the ocean. One Sunday we went to the lu'au there; another night we went to Dondero's and had a terrific dinner on the terrace. Our last night we dined at Tidepools. I think one of our favorite dinners out had to be at Rumfire at the Sheraton - great view and fabulous fish dinner.
We hiked the the Pihea Trail out to the Alaka'i Swamp up in Waimea Canyon - fabulous views along the way, but no view at the end of the trail - socked in with fog, which sounds like the norm.
Richard played gold twice at Kukuiolono Golf Course ($9/9 holes!!) and loved that - he pulled a cart and the second time golfed with 2 guys who live on the island and enjoyed talking to them.
We went up the north side for 3 days/2 nights so that we could make a 6:45 am boat trip along the Na'Pali coast (with Na Pali Catamaran - highly recommend their tour - went into 3 sea caves and snorkeled). We enjoyed going out to Kilauea Lighthouse to see, in particular, the red-footed boobies, the red-tailed tropicbirds and wedge tailed shearwater chicks. We hiked the last morning out to Hanakapi'ai Beach (too rough to swim) then back to Ke'e Beach for a quick swim and snorkel. It felt like we were coming home when we got back to your condo! We really enjoyed having a gin and tonic and walking out onto the lawn to look up at the Milky Way and all the stars! And your kitchen was perfect for making a light dinner "at home".
All of Kauai is spectacular - so happy for you both that you have found a home (second home) in Poipu. You're living the dream!
We have lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for the past 34 years and have been coming to Hawaii since 1982 to escape our cold, dark winters. We spent several years researching where we wanted our winter getaway to be located. After visiting several places, we choose Poipu, Hawaii because of the consistent weather conditions, the outdoor activities and the friendly people. We absolutely love our home in Kauai and we are excited to share it with you.
