About The Owner

We live and work in Southern California, and we love to travel. When we first visited Kauai, we felt so rejuvenated and loved exploring the unspoiled island. We resolved to return often. Now we take pleasure and pride in our condo. We have a morning ritual of sipping local Kauai coffee and fresh fruit smoothies on the lanai where we watch the birds and the palm trees sway as we plan our day. Things we most enjoy include the fresh fish; local fruit, vegetable and flora 'Sunshine' farmer's markets; the clean air and trade winds; the warm, inviting ocean as going into the water makes us feel like kids again; finding hideaway spots at beaches; and relaxing on our lanai spending stress-free time together. We know you'll enjoy staying at Poipu Sands, our home away from home.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why The Owner chose Kauai

In planning our 1st Kauai trip, we read in the LA Times that Poipu Sands was highly requested and ideally located. While staying there, we agreed! So on our 2nd visit, we extensively researched Kauai properties, and asked a local broker to let us know when specific Poipu Sands units became available. A few months later we had the keys to our own piece of paradise. Poipu Sands is steps away from Shipwreck Beach and the 5-star Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa, and only a short walk or drive to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke's Beach. We love that Poipu Sands is located on a 7-acre greenbelt, making it very low density and truly a lush, tropical environment. We enjoy the ground floor location close enough to hear the surf break.

What makes this condo unique

From our unit, you hear the surf break as we are ~150 yards from the water's edge. The condo is set back, well away from street noise. Poipu Sands has its own swimming pool and tennis court (no charge). In a few minutes, you can walk to the sandy and beautiful Shipwreck Beach as well as the 5-star Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa (our neighboring property). The Grand Hyatt has fine and casual dining plus live entertainment and spectacular grounds. Two golf courses are within a few miles of our property; in fact you can walk to the golf course at the Grand Hyatt. A well-maintained, well-lit (for evening strolls) path meanders through the Poipu Kai Resort community leading to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke's Beach. Condo parking is very convenient and plentiful. You get free high speed Internet access and a very comfortable new California King size bed. Our condo is a very spacious, ~1000 square foot, 1 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath unit. It opens to a lanai with partial ocean views and is located in a park-like setting. With an equipped kitchen, the condo has a warm and homey feel. Poipu Sands is part of Poipu Kai which has 7 swimming pools and 9 tennis courts (soft and hard surfaces). The condo is close to the famous Roy's restaurant and natural attractions such as Spouting Horn.

Wonderful Condo... Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful condo for a week in July 2016. It exceeded our expectations on every level! The location is perfect, and very accessible to all the fun points of interest in Poipu. We loved the open breezy feel of the condo, with the wonderful relaxing lanai where we ate many meals and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the ocean. Just LOVELY! It was a short walk over to the Hyatt, which is a beautiful property to stroll (and a great place to listen is live music, have a cocktail or sit for a wonderful dinner-out). We also really enjoyed having a full modern kitchen in the condo (completely stocked with everything we could possibly need) and 2 spacious new bathrooms. Everything was so well organized and clean. The washer/dryer came in handy and we appreciated the drawer full of random necessities. Every need was met! We LOVED using the beach chairs when we went to Poipu Beach, and the cooler came in handy too! Thank you to Shelley and Greg for offering such a cozy, special place for us to stay. It was perfect and the best vacation we could imagine! We can't wait to book again!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo clean, comfortable, well equipped for a wonderful vacation. Area is ideal for walking, hiking, beach activities. The complex has a pool and barbecue to add to the amenities. We definitely recommend this condo to anyone who is seeking a quiet week of warm weather, fun, and relaxation. We took advantage of the owner's recommendations for activities and restaurants and found them good as they say.

Great Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The walking paths along the condo's and beaches combined with beautiful grounds was something we will never forget. The condo was very nice and had plenty of utensils, and was even equipped with some extra beach belongings such as chairs, water shoes, umbrella etc... We would definately like to come back.

Checks all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

Everything went as smooth as could be. Great location, right by Shipwrecks Beach, or just seconds from the pool. Two BBQ grills seconds away as well. All was clean and well maintained in the condo, and stocked w/beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards. Nothing sensational about the unit, but we didn't go to Kauai to spend a lot of time inside. The lanai only has a peak-a-boo view of the ocean (more of the next complex's parking lot), and the TV isn't much. About half the units were empty, giving us peace and quiet, and the pool and gas grills mostly to ourselves.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Kauai and really enjoyed the condo. The location is wonderful especially if you need access to the Hyatt. I loved the kitchen and the washer and dryer - we did a lot of hiking and the mud was intense so the close proximity to the car wash hose was great for cleaning off our gear. The grill is very close by for BBQ's and the grounds are beautifully kept. You can't go wrong with renting Greg and Shelley's condo.
