Overview

Poipu Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Aloha. Welcome to a bit of paradise! Ideal location. Easy and beautiful access to Poipu Beach. Lovely private key-entry pool between the condo and the beach. This 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhome is 1800 square feet of interior elegance and external beauty near the ocean and right on the expansive greenbelt in the privileged Manualoha section of the Resort at Poipu Kai .

Enjoy the gorgeous ocean view sunsets, the gated ocean view pool, and boogie board at world-famous Brennecke’s Beach, just a few hundred feet of landscaped grounds directly down the greenbelt path from the lower lanai. Take a 2 minute walk along the beach to the protected swimming lagoon for kids, snorkeling for all, and surfing. Also, the resort's 6 tennis courts are directly across the wide greenbelt from our condo-- just a little more than 100 feet away.

The interior has been extensively remodeled to create a wonderfully light and open interior space. Please see our photos.

There is a lovely spacious grassy and landscaped open space in front, leading down to the private pool and beaches and across to the tennis facility. The gas grill is at the edge of the greenbelt about 30 feet from the lower lanai. It's really, truly an exceptionally beautiful location and environment. Those who know the area realize that it our unit very special-- we bought it after staying at many different units. It was by far the best combination of interior beauty and exterior location. As you can see from the reviews, our guests have loved it.

A light and airy home away from home, with full dining, kitchen and laundry conveniences. Elegant kitchen and leather couches and large leather easy chair. Master suite features a custom bamboo king-size bed, walk-in closet, cable TV (flat screen) with DVD and VCR, private stereo system, and large covered lanai. The connected master bath includes glass block spa shower, tub, seated vanity area, and garden views. The resort has spacious and lush tropical landscaped grounds and is one of Kauai’s lowest density resorts. Tennis courts (6), gated swimming pools (7), Jacuzzi spa, restaurant, and 24 hour security. No units above or below you contributes to the house-like relaxed environment. Watch the sunset through waving palm trees from the upper lanai.

( VRBO's "location map" shows location of postal address for all of Manualoha-- our unit is the beach-end unit on right hand side end of the long "driveway," for Manualoha's units, much closer to the ocean than map shows, and away from most of the resort accommodations other than the pools and tennis facitilty-- see our photos.)

We wish you a warm Aloha and a memorable stay.

About Bob Venning

We first visited Poipu Kai in 1985. We stayed at a number of places oin 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.) Our unit is truly a unique and exquisite environment. Very sincerely, Bob and Laura Venning

Bob Venning purchased this condo in 2007

Why Bob Venning chose Kauai

The Manualoha section of Poipu Kai is easily the most 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 seven tennis courts and ample swimming facilities. Golf nearby.

What makes this condo unique

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. Then on to the condo, where the gas grill is conveniently outside the lower lanai and local fish and meats are ideal for grilling! condominium!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned. The WiFi is working. The problem was that someone had turned off the wall switch (taped down, with a message, not to change its position) that controls a key electrical outlet . We taped it down even tighter, with a red tape. I am posting this message because of the review that mentions it did not work-- although this review is 5 stars out of 5, it seems like the most negative we have ever gotten. Our guess is that the problem with the wifi affected their whole attitude toward our lovely condo.



Please down further! It is a beautiful unit in a lovely location with a great kitchen full of high-end utensils and equipment.



Sincerely, Bob and Laura

Another wonderful island vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful townhouse, very roomy, lots of fans in every room which was appreciated due to July heat/ humidity. Everything was very clean, kitchen was wonderfully equipped! Loved being right next to the greenbelt for daily walks. Very relaxing stay, would definitely recommend and stay here again. Aloha 😎

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This condo was in a great location! Close to beaches and pools and tennis courts. Despite many condos in the area, it was quiet. The condo is spacious and comfortable. You can see the ocean from the upper lanai. It's in a great location to walk around the lovely neighborhood. The owner is wonderful to work with and resolved an initial problem immediately. Having the two bedrooms on the lower level meant it was cooler at night which was wonderful. We would certainly select this condo again.

A Taste of Heaven in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo more than lived up to my expectations and set the stage for a wonderful week of bliss away from the cold and winter of Chicago. The unit was very comfortable and well appointed, with everything we needed -- and gorgeous artwork to boot! I especially enjoyed the leisurely mornings with lattes on the upper lanai looking out to the beach -- and then the beautiful sunsets in the evening. Heavenly! The owners supplied a nice collection of books and movies (DVDs), which made for nice relaxing evenings once back from our sightseeing jaunts. And that was another very positive aspect of the rental -- it's in a great location and serves as a very convenient stopping point -- whether to the spa at the Grand Hyatt (which I highly recommend!) or for driving trips to Waimea Canyon or the north side of the island -- or to the wonderful fruit and veg stand just outside the resort. Plus it's close to the beach but very quiet (which I appreciate!). I'd come again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it.

Our Favorite Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to this lovely condo together since 2013, and once again, we had a perfect vacation that was both relaxing and fun. We love the unit's full kitchen, spacious master bedroom, upstairs and downstairs balconies, proximity to the beach, and of course the friendly and helpful owners. We loved walking over to the Koa Kea beach bar for drinks or to Tidepools for a delicious seafood dinner. A grocery store, post office and the AMAZING Koloa Fish Market are all just a short drive away. This place really has everything you need for the Hawaiian getaway of your dreams. We'll definitely be back again!

Most Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a perfect home base for a wonderful vacation exploring all of Kauai! While the condo is excellent in many regards, we were most impressed by the upstairs area which has a large, very well stocked kitchen, breezy and open living area and fantastic views (especially at sunset). Poipu Beach is an easy walk away, as is Brenneke's, and the Grand Hyatt amenities (pool, restaurants, beach, etc.) Everything else, Waimea canyon, Napali coast tour via boat, and even east and north beaches are a short drive away. And, it was always nice to return to the sunny south and a great pool at the end of the day. This was one of our best family vacations. Thank you!!!

Welcome to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect stay: we loved Poipu Beach, we loved the Poipu Kay Resort- we particularly liked the Manualoha section of the resort and the unit itself was fabulous. Positioned with a great view and with nice privacy. Clean, nicely decorated, comfortable beds, and super well stocked. We were greeted with a bag of Kauia coffee and Kauai cookies, then took advantage of the super well equipped kitchen with oils, vinegars, condiments, spices, tea, saran wrap, paper goods, dishwasher detergent etc. How many times have I spent a small fortune making a VRBO property ready for cooking a full meal with cheap grocery store pots and pans with mismatched lids? Beyond that, there was a full closet of beach towels, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and beach chairs. Bathrooms had soap, shampoo and conditioner.The ceiling fans in the rooms kept the air moving nicely although we did need the one additional free standing fan in the master bedroom. Our family was delighted with our stay here, very much appreciated the responsiveness of the owner, and would hope to return. PS- wonderful to be able to walk to two great beaches and also Brennecke's beachfront café for breakfast or happy hour!!! This is a laid back little corner of the island.
