Beautiful! Puu Poa#402 is just as described . Everything you would hope it would be and much more. The owner Gary is very attentive and thoughtful of your every need. It was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary.
We are so pleased your anniversary celebration was enjoyed on Kauai with no disappointments. Anne and I strive to anticipate every client's needs and expectations. Best wishes for many more celebrations.
We stayed in #402 for nearly two weeks. Condo was well-appointed with everything we needed, and more. Sometimes I worry about furniture quality and cleanliness in a unit that gets rented, but I was very pleasantly surprised with this one. We did utilize the A/C pretty extensively and spent less than $200 over the two week period. Well worth it! Despite the brief island-wide power outage and daily rain showers we absolutely love Kauai. I’d consider staying in #402 again if we return. It is a great space, and although Princeville is a bit of a drive from towns like Kapa’a, it is beautiful and we didn’t really mind. After all, it’s island life and we had nothing but time.
Thank you for sharing your recent experience. Extra care and attention is given to all our furnishings to assure a stay with no disappointments.
We are pleased you blended into the island life. We look forward to your return.
Great stay! Clean, comfortable. Owners answered questions and messages quickly. Location is perfect.
We had an amazing stay. It’s was super clean. Beds were comfortable. Had everything you would need. Great locations. And great owners. Honestly best owners I have worked with. Thank you for everything. Mahalo
Best of Both worlds - Resort feel with Home comfort
My husband and I went just the two of us at the end of June.
We have stayed at many rentals on this side of the island as well as at a couple of resorts in Kauai. Our experience was exceptional from booking to final invoice. Gary was an extremely communicative host and gave some great suggestions.
If you're worried about missing the turn down service at hotels, then hire someone to come daily, because Gary's home is perfectly set, clean, smells better than any resort I've stayed in lately, and has everything you'll need to have an enjoyable romantic or family vacation.
The kitchen had all the bells and whistles needed to cook a great meal and if BBQing is your thing, you can BBQ on the Lanai with a view of the Pacific ocean. Views are even beautiful from anyplace you stand in the condo.
There is a very nice pool as well as the short hike down to hideaways beach below just a few steps away from the condo building. (beware, although it's a short hike, this can get very slippery and muddy)
Additionally, walk out of the condo lot, turn right and walk straight into the Princeville Resort property where you can have a cocktail and enjoy the gorgeous sunset view of Hanalei.
Pros - View, A/C, location, clean, Comfy master, beach cooler, close to golf course, quiet
Cons - No real cons, only good to know that there are three flights of steps to carry baggage and no elevator so may be difficult if you have any impairment. It was only an issue for us the first day as I had a bit of a spine issue, but once I relaxed into Kauai air, the stairs were a breeze.
I would definitely book this home again. Thank you for your hospitality!
Thank you for the exceptional review to assist other clients planning a vacation. All your points are helpful to confirm expectations. We focus on providing quality along with personal attention to all our guests. We look forward to your return!
Wonderful facility, fantastic view, really enjoyed our stay. Would recommend again.
