Why Bud or Kathy Schonder chose Kauai

Because you come to Hawaii to get away from it all and relax. This property affords you the possibility to RELAX and ENJOY all the qualities that make Hawaii a favorite destination. Amazing Sunsets, the Ocean to view by day and to lull you to sleep at night, and the BEAUTY is breathtaking!!!!

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is located at a vantage point where others come to watch the sunsets. You can watch amazing sunsets from the privacy of your lanai. You can view much of the sea life right from the lanai, i.e. whale watching, school of Dolphin as they swim by, the turtles right below the cliffs, and so much more!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a great time during our two week stay in your condo.

Thanks so much


P.S. By the way - Those Bathrooms Are Great!

Wonderful south shore Kauai island location. Within walking 2 Poipu Beach (so so beach) + several close by restaurants. Kalapacki Joe's sports bar friendly 4 Seahawk's games. Drive to Waimea for shrimp tacos - great little town as are several close by. If traveling w children - Soap Pond Beach on way to Waimea cannot b beat. Reef protected swim & play area. No worries of currents or rip tides. View from Condo is outstanding. Visual of waves crashing & sound very soothing. Unfortunately glass wall surrounding lanai pretty eroded from salt, etc. This makes it dif to see ocean while laying on chaise lounges. No A/C which we needed first few days due to humidity. Owner has plenty of ceiling & floor fans for temps below 82. Unit clean & well stocked w necessary cooking utensils & appliances. Very few spices, etc. Biggest negative & reason for 4 stars was the distance from one's vehicle to door. With heavy suitcases difficult. Cement flat path helped however still stairs to traverse. Not UNdoable tho. Many tour shuttles will come directly to complex for pickup. It's that centrally located. I would stay there again. Good value for price.

Owner's Response: With so many positive comments, I would have given me 5 stars. Hopefully the dolly for moving boxes & suitcases down the ramp is still in the renters closet? Bud

Just as I expected it would be after reading all the glowing reviews. The location above the cliffs is so cool- you don't overlook anyone's condo so it feels very private. The sunset view is perfect, but a short walk around the building along the cliffs provides an amazing view of the sunrise as well. And as a bonus we saw a spectacular full moon set from the lanai. The condo is nicely furnished and the beds are comfortable. Than you for sharing your wonderful Kauai retreat.

Beautiful but needs cooling system

  • 4 of 5

We loved the room and Spectacular view. Definitely needs some type of cooling system! The upgraded furniture and cleanliness was a plus. It was quiet with few neighbors in October.

Owner's Response: Thank you for appreciating the work we do to keep our Kauai condo clean & comfortable which included recent installation of more efficient ceiling fans. I am sorry you were too warm. Almost all our renters, including ourselves love the warm tropical trade winds & listening to the waves 20 feet from our lanai. Closing up our condo with air conditioning would ruin the experience of being in a tropical paradises! Bud

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really liked this place a lot! The view is fantastic! We ate breakfast out on the lanai every morning and saw so many sea turtles while eating. Wonderful trade winds to keep you cool. We felt very comfortable in this home. Well stocked kitchen, had everything we needed. My kids loved taking the little "hike" from the parking lot to the sea cliffs and looking at the pools of marine life. The arch is really cool too. The only small negative is that because you are close to the ocean, you are far from the parking lot (but really it's not that far, it just seems farther when you are carrying your load from Costco ;) ) I recommend this place, I plan to come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Hopefully you read & used the ramp with no steps from the parking lot to the condo as directed in the provided welcoming package. Also we provided a dolly for those bulk Costco items. Glad you had a great time & enjoyed our condo. Couldn't be 20 feet from the ocean without some elevation change. Bud

Peaceful, beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay in this condo. It's situated between Poipu Beach, which is very fun and family-friendly, and a breath-taking walk to Shipwreck Beach. We spent a lot of time just exploring these areas close to us. I would definitely recommend continuing your walk passed Shipwreck Beach onto the cliffs that take you out to Gillins Beach. Very beautiful and great way to watch the sunrise! After the day's busy activities, we loved coming back to this peaceful condo away from the crowds. There's nothing between you and the waves crashing against the rocks. We spent a lot of time sitting on the lanai enjoying the waves. We saw many turtles and dolphins swimming by. We loved the welcome basket when we first arrived. The place was very clean, the furnishings nice and the bed comfortable. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

Great location...Popui beach, was best for kids and adult...centrally located to try native foodies.....and see all the sights...raining all over the island but not here. Humility was high the last two days of our stay. No air conditioning but there are fans and it kept us comfortable. We would definitely come will not be disappointed.

We are 1/2 mile or less from one of the best rated beaches in Hawaii. Many wonderful restaurants and shops are equally as close. Our condominium affords some of the best sunset views on the island as well as sea life viewing. The complex has a wonderful swimming pool, hot tub, tennis courts and the outdoor community grilling area is modern and beautiful. All the amenities that you may require are offered in the condo including a full washer and dryer. Outdoor amenities are numerous but the view from our condo is by far the greatest amenity of all!! A guest book inside the condo has numerous suggestions from previous guests regarding, restaurants, must-see places and must do activities during your stay.
