About John Ferrante

Hi, my name is John Ferrante. We've been coming to Poipu for the last 15 years and now have our primary residence there. We love Kauai and you will too! I've been managing the rental of our condo during that time and it has been a wonderful experience to share our home with so many others looking for a great vacation location. We keep the condo in great condition, continually updated to reflect a contemporary Hawaiian atmosphere so that our guests can enjoy a unique yet affordable stay.

I encourage you to read the reviews and comments previous guests have provided to get a good idea of the quality of this accommodation. I look forward working with you directly to insure a great vacation experience on Kauai and at Poipu Crater Resort.

John Ferrante purchased this condo in 1999

Why John Ferrante chose Kauai

We purchased our condo because of the uniqueness of the property. The duplexes are polynesian in style and the property is like an island unto itself. It is low density residences surrounded by tropical gardens where each building is it's own unique position. People are very friendly and there is a fantastic pool area where visitors and owners can greet one another. There is so much to do within a few minutes drive and it is an easy walk to get anywhere in the Poipu Coastal area. Poipu Crater is truly a vacation destination unto itself.

What makes this condo unique

Probably one of the nicest benefits is the property itself. So many others are concrete buildings with narrow, hotel-style balconies as your outdoor living space This townhome has a very large lanai which becomes a gathering place for dining, reading, enjoying your favorite beverage or just watching the sway of the palms and birds. Your own dedicated parking spot is just a few feet away from the unit with no stairs. This is an amazing advantage since most Poipu Condo's have large parking lots a good walk from the condo, and stairs which is tiresome carrying groceries and beach gear. . The swimming pool and clubhouse is probably one of the largest in the Poipu Area, feeling almost hotel like and a luxury when just a small number of units have access to it.

We had the best time in Poipu Crater #20

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome "first time" visit to the island of Kauai --- and it started with staying in Poipu Crater #20. There were 4 adults and this condo was spacious enough for all of us. Very clean, personable with artwork from the island --we loved all the pineapple decor! Equipped with full kitchen and washer and dryer--- also a very quiet location so we could relax on the linai after a day full of excursions and siteseeing. Swimming pool was a nice treat too! Definitely will return and we highly recommend this condo!

Wonderful stay at a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, her husband, my nephew and my fiancée all had the pleasure of enjoying 5 days at Poipu Crater #20. It's a PERFECT condo for 2 couples as both rooms have large beds, spacious rooms and access to bathroom by each respective room. The condo is VERY CLEAN, equipped with all the amenities of home, and even has a closet full of beach toys (chairs, boards, etc) to use. The kitchen is well equipped and quite updated. The floor plan is spacious with separate dining room, living room and lanai. It was perfect for our 2 families to feel like we were on family vacation, awhile being able to retreat to our own spaces when needed.

The location is very convinient to Poipu Town (the beach and shopping). I've been visiting my family in Kauai all my life and will definitely recommend AND return to Poipi Crater #20.

What a great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4, one 13 yr and one 7 yr, really lived the condo itself, very nice and renovated with taste, the resort is also great with its lush garden, pool and bbq area. Fully equipped with beach supplies, conveniently located close to Poipu beach this really is a very highly recommended condo. Enjoy!

We had a wonderful week in this rental. It has a nice layout, 2 bedrooms with separate baths (showers only, no bathtubs, but you've got the whole ocean near!). Well stocked kitchen, spacious living room and lanai. Unit is clean and well kept.

We really appreciated all the water gear (snorkels, boogie boards, sand toys, even foldable seats). You can drive or walk to poipu beach in just a few minutes. Keep in mind though that this unit does NOT have a/c. It has large (quiet) ceiling fans, but it can get hot in there.

We'd love to come back!

Quiet and Serene

  • 5 of 5

The condo unit was very, very clean and we had more than we needed for our home stay and beach adventures. If you are snorkeling, I would recommend the waters by the Beach House Restaurant. Snorkel Bobs is a great place to rent gear and they are just up the road in Koloa. The pool was quiet and often we were the only ones there. Getting around Poipu by car from the crater was easy and everything is in very close proximity. Our favorite restaurants, Keoki's Paradise, The Beach House and Brenneckes Beach Broiler. Highly recommend this unit and area of Kauai.
