KAUAI BEACHES: Poipu Kai resort fronts on two well known beaches... Shipwreck Beach and Brennecke Beach, each an excellent bodysurfing beach. Next to Brennecke beach is Poipu Beach Park, rated the best beach in North America for four years running. It features a sheltered "baby beach" for toddlers and parents, a fully equipped children's playground, and a great snorkeling and swimming beach with every variety of tropical fish usually only seen in aquariums. Surfing is also an excellent option at Poipu Beach with a surf shop and board rentals just across the street from the beach.
ISLAND ACTIVITIES: For the shoppers there are some very nice boutiques in the Poipu Village shopping center just West on Poipu Road. There are also boutique shops at the surrounding resorts, e.g., Hyatt, Sheraton and the Marriott. Food shopping is nearby at the Big Save supermarket in Koloa, just a couple of miles up the bypass road. If you are energetic and want some exercise Kauai offers a great series of hikes and drives, some with breathtaking views. Try the hike along the beach and cliffs east past the Hyatt. It is about 4 miles and the reward is a wonderful white sand beach. Also refer to the Kauai Guide Book located in the house for more fun things to do.

Lovely Condo in Poipu
This was our favorite of the three condos we rented in Hawaii. Two full bedrooms and two full baths with the master having a spa tub and walk in shower. It had central air conditioning which is difficult to find in the islands. The washer dryer was full sized . Sunken living room. Kitchen very well equipped and both bar stools and a table for eating. Pool view bottom floor with a lanai off the living room and the master bath. The owners were the easiest to communicate with because they clearly let you know their direct cell phone number and you don't have to communicate through Home Away which is a total pain. Poipu is a great place to stay because it is the sunniest. Nice beach a short distance away. Highly recommend the taco shack called DA CRAC and the luau at the Grand Hyatt. Wonderful stay with wonderful and friendly reps for the condo.
Thank you for the visit and we look forward to your return! aloha, Juliana & Jim
Great place! Clean and comfortable.
I am a clean freak when staying somewhere, and this condo was very clean. Great location by the pool and nice centralized location in the Poipu area. If we go back to Kauai, we will definitely stay here again.
2nd Time at Complex
This is the 2nd time we've stayed at the complex - location is great and we need a/c. This unit was extremely clean, kitchen was well stocked, lots of linens, hangers in the closet, luggage rack, night lights - they take care of a lot of the small things that make the difference in your stay. Although it faces the pool, it is still very quiet. We would definitely stay here again. You do get some noise from the upstairs if they are heavy walkers. This is the only downside of this complex.
Clean, but needs new mattresses, pillows and sofa
The location and cleanliness of this condo were very good. It looks just like the photos and is quite spacious. It’s an easy walk to the beach, and the pool and Jacuzzi are just outside. However, the mattresses and pillows made for rough sleeping (which then made us tired during the day). They are lumpy and hard — need to be replaced. Same goes for the living room furniture; the seat cushions on the sofa, in particular, have no “life” in them, so you sink down to the frame. Note: We learned after we booked that unlike some of the other condos, you do not receive a complimentary membership to the athletic club with this particular unit. If those items were corrected — mattresses, pillows, living room furniture, athletic club — I would give this condo an enthusiastic 5 stars. As it is now, I can’t recommend it, unfortunately.
Thank you for the visit and for your comments! We were surprised about the mattress and sofa comments and sorry to hear you were uncomfortable. Pillows are on the list to replace (although we try to keep a variety of types since everyone has a different preference). The master king mattress is only about 3 years old and the sofa is 3-5 years! We will definitely look into these points you have made since we strive to provide an excellent and comfortable "home away from home".
I would like to clarify the athletic club amenity. The owner of this condo originally chose not to participate in offering this optional amenity. At our other properties, guests choose to pay a fee for the fitness club (not complimentary). We are in the process of offering this amenity with all of our properties.
Aloha and we hope you might consider another stay, Juliana & Jim
Wonderful spot, all the amenities you need and more! Great location
Perfect location, unit, and setting
We had the best family vacation we have ever experienced, and I’m not just saying that as an expression.
First, location: the pool is right outside the door, and not used much at all, we were almost always alone, and our kids loved the access to the pool. The situation of the unit is the best in the whole resort in my opinion, secluded and surrounded by tropical plants and foliage, and quiet, no road or traffic noise. The lanai off the master suite is amazing, feels like you are in the middle of the jungle. You can walk to several great meals, Brenneckes (highly recommended this was our go to place), Tidepools, Kalapaki Joes, Brenneckes deli (great sandwiches and breakfast) and just a very short drive to the shopping center with Puka dogs and sushi, or a bit further to the Beachhouse for a sunset dinner (this is a must!) walking the green belt pathway to several of the beaches in the immediate area is lit at night, has a variety of wildlife, frogs (don’t touch them they excrete toxins!) kids enjoyed lizard hunting, without much luck, all kinds of birds and beautiful landscaping and flora. We loaded up the provided beach gear, which was awesome, chairs, umbrella, mats, sand toys, cooler, and took the short 5 minute drive down to Poipu Beach many days, it’s an awesome beach! Snorkeling, you can see tons of fish in the very protected section of water. Sometime the kids and wife would walk back, and I would haul the gear. Our very first day we walked to the beach before dinner and got to see sea turtles sleeping on the beach! It was an amazing experience.
The condo: everything we needed was provided. The ac was a god sent, even set at 75 it felt amazing coming home after a day at the beach and 85 deg temps. The slat blinds were great. Everything you could need in the kitchen, ice maker (enough capacity to fill the beach cooler) and blender, key pieces of equipment. The unit was very clean upon arrival which isn’t always the case with these bigger condos. The painless self check in/out and keypad door lock were great as well. The unit is beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. The unit managers were great, even after leaving there was a slight issue with some damage to a cabinet that we were not aware of, and it was handled wonderfully by them.
I could go on and on but am limited by characters! Great unit, we will return next year unless we can drag more family members along with us, we will look for a bigger unit in the same resort next year!
Thank you for the lovely review. Juliana and I and so glad you had a memorable time at the condo and this magical island. Please do come back some day. We have homes and condos to accommodate up to 14 guests. Have a wonderful holiday season.
