We had a wonderful week at the Poipu Shores unit with our German friends, and this particular condo is ideally located in the warm sunny Poipu area of Kauai. Literally 10 steps from the pool, it was especially convenient and nice to be on the ground floor, to be able to enjoy the lawn right off our lanai. The rocky lava bay by the pool was favored by the green sea turtles and we were fascinated watching them cavort in the big crashing waves, never seeming to mind the surf. It was also nice to be able to walk to several beautiful beaches nearby, which we did daily. Brenneke's Beach was great for sunning, swimming and the snorkeling wasn't too bad there either. The Hawaiian monk seals would often come onto the sandy beaches to rest and digest after their night's hunting and feeding, volunteers would rope off the beach so the seals could rest undisturbed.
We found the condo suited our needs well, we had our fifth guest sleep on the inflatable bed, which worked out fine. We did our share of BBQ ing and found the kitchen to be well supplied with cooking needs. We also appreciated the use of the washer and dryer, which came in handy.
Lovely golf courses located nearby, kayak adventures in Kauai's rivers, snorkeling, Waimea Canyon,(Hawaii's Grand Canyon), swimming and just enjoying the 83 degree sunshine...what's not to love in Kauai? It is so beautiful and scenic there. I rather regret not taking in a helicopter ride to get the full effect of the spectacular NaPali coast...hopefully next time. My advice, pay the $$$ and go!
We found several outstanding restaurants in the area, Lynn provides a good list. Had some wonderful fish tacos at Merriman's Downstairs Cafe, casual downstairs, fine dining upstairs. For a special treat, make reservations at The Beach House Restaurant. Fresh fish prepared beautifully. Outstanding!
This property may not be the newest around, but we settled in and appreciated the great location, the sound of the surf and the views from our unit. I had to stop myself from taking sunset photo after sunset photo...The unit itself has nice marble bathrooms and a lovely kitchen. It was a treat to be there, and we appreciated Lynn's availability to help with any questions that came up. She was 'johnny on the spot!' Thank you Lynn!
We would recommend this condo to anyone wishing to enjoy sunny Poipu, Kauai. Two couples would be ideal, but it worked out fine with five....
Families with Young Children,
