Located in the heart of the Poipu Beach Resort area on the sunny South Shore of Kauai and close to all of the best beaches and restaurants, Poipu Crater Resort is a special place that offers a private and peaceful experience in an environment reminiscent of a tropical botanical garden.
This is townhome #20, recently remodeled with new bathrooms and kitchen, this 2 bedroom 2 bathroom home is exceptionally well maintained and is located high on the crater rim providing great breezes and sunsets from the oversized lanai. Units in Poipu Crater are duplexes with only one shared wall, no one above or below you and dedicated parking just 50 feet from the front door all on one level. master bedroom and bathroom area located upstairs with the second bedroom and bath on the main level and is perfect for families and couples alike. In addition to 4 people in beds, a twin futon mattress with bedding is available for one small child and can be placed on the floor in the living room or the master bedroom.
The home is beautifully decorated with contemporary furnishings and artwork reflecting the spirit of Aloha. The full size kitchen is complete with all 2017 new stainless steel appliances and beautiful stone countertops. The bathrooms have stone countertops and large new walk in showers with glass doors. You’ll find everything you need for a great vacation in this home including a large flat screen LED SMART TV with internet streaming and Blu-Ray /DVD player, music system stocked with a selection of great Hawaiian music and beach chairs, towels and gear. The full size washer and dryer are new 2017 also.
Because the parking is extremely close by and there are NO stairs between the parking area and entry/main level of the home it works well for people with limited mobility etc. The main level has the guest bedroom and bath, kitchen and dinning areas all with NO steps. The living room and lanai are ONE step down and the master bedroom and bath are upstairs.
Most other condo listings have additional manager or owner fees. Since you are renting directly from me, I charge no additional fees.
Poipu Crater Resort is located within walking distance to Poipu beaches, shopping and dining. The resort has one of the largest pools in Poipu and brand new private tennis court. There is also a clubhouse, outdoor lanai and BBQ area to enjoy.

About John Ferrante
Hi, my name is John Ferrante. We've been coming to Poipu for the last 20 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 Poipu
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.

Great place ...quiet and peaceful
We had an amazing stay on this property. The house is ultra clean and the furnishings and appliances are all well maintained. It's a totally a great place to just hangout and chill in a lazy afternoon and read a good book . Surrounded by trees and lush green shrubbery,
It's really just a great place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Totally enjoyed our stay and John was always prompt
returning calls and texts whenever we have questions . Thank you John for being such a gracious host.
Poipu Crater Resort Villa # 20
Even in the rain, this lovely appointed villa is magical. Beautifully decorated and maintained, it not only had all of the amenities, but a chorus of birds to awaken us each morning. The nearby attractions - beaches, shore trails, and restaurants were within walking distance. On the first day, we spotted sea turtles body surfing the waves in a cove and monk seals basking on the beach on the second. Our only regret was locking the door when we departed. We hope to return soon and plan to make this lovely tropical idyll our first choice for staying in Kauai.
Skip the hotel or other condos! Stay here!
We loved our stay at this beautiful property. It well maintained. I was looking for something with a private feel and this definitely fit the bill. Not the traditional “condo” style. They are duplexes with plenty of lush vegetation between each. Our 10 year old enjoyed looking for lizards and geckos around the place. We enjoyed the bbq and pool area. Close to many beaches. Lots of amenities, snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers..... We have rented quite a few homes through VRBO over the years and my husband commented several times “These people thought of everything!” We would without doubt stay here again. John, THANK YOU for the pleasure of using your place while we were on the island. It was a great relaxing experience after a grueling tax season. Mahalo, Katie
Great place very clean and comfortable!!!
only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that it really sleeps only four comfortably not five! my son was a trooper and being 6'3" he could not sleep on the couch so we had to make a bed out of the cushions from the couch. other than that it was great! The owners were very organized and answered all my question in a very timely manor. Highly recommend it for four.
Perfect Condo Perfect Vacation!
We’ve rented condos through VRBO that looked and sounded great but with mixed results. This condo met all our expectations and was really a pleasant surprise. Poipu Crater is in a great location right in the middle of Poipu next to the ocean, yet it is a world apart. Peaceful, quiet and beautiful. This unit, #21, was a highlight of our Kauai trip. Everything was perfectly clean when we arrived. It is bright, up to date and modern, with all new stainless appliances, new washer dryer and a beautiful kitchen which we used every day. The baths were very nice granite and large walk in tile and glass showers. Really felt luxurious for a condo. We spent most of our time on the outdoor lanai. Even when it rained, it was wonderful to be outside. We ate all our meals there and it was a perfect gathering place in the morning to hear the birds (which are just amazing) and drink our coffee. We found it very convenient, with luggage and groceries, to have the condo’s parking space right next to the condo. The south shore was a good central spot to get to Wiamea canyon and Lihue (Costco) and the many beautiful beaches. There were all kinds of great restaurants close by too. We loved the pool at Poipu Crater and wished we could have spent more time just relaxing there. Next time. I highly recommend this condo. It is more than a 5 star place!
Perfect Quiet Setting!
Stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed the entire stay! Very clean, well decorated townhouse with a wonderful lanai to enjoy every morning. Loved the ceiling and layout of this place! No A/C but that was not a problem if you take advantage of the trade winds. I really appreciated the bench outside the front door and the garden hose to wash off before entering the TH. We used the cooler, beach chairs and umbrella for Poipu Beach just a short distance away-the only beach we snorkeled at and pleasantly surprised. We saw 2 green sea turtles, several monk seals and plenty of colorful fish. Would I stay here again...............of course!
