Our SPACIOUS 1 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, PARTIAL OCEAN VIEW condo is about 150 yards from the ocean. This condo is located in the highly sought after Poipu Sands complex in the Poipu Kai Resort. Our unit is the CLOSEST 1 BEDROOM CONDO BY OWNER TO THE OCEAN. From our lanai and even inside our condo, you will HEAR THE SURF BREAK.

Poipu Sands is situated on 7.5 acres of lush, tropical, well-maintained grounds. Within Poipu Kai, Poipu Sands has the only private tennis court and its own swimming pool and barbecues. Poipu Sands condos are the only condos in Poipu Kai with direct beach access (no need to cross a street, no traffic, no cars...just an easy and beautiful path to the beach). Also, our condo is on the ground floor with easy access from the near-by parking and no need to haul luggage or groceries up & down stairs.

Poipu Beach, repeatedly voted #1 beach worldwide over the years, is a short walk or a quick drive with GREAT SNORKELING!

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.

Thank you Greg and Shelley,

Wonderful accommodations! The condo was beautiful, comfortable, clean and well equipped. . Poipu Sands is a beautiful complex, and the surroundings breath taking. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our 30th anniversary. We hope to revisited, and recommend highly.

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!

We enjoyed our stay at Poipu Sands very much! The condo was extremely spacious and very well appointed. We walked to Shipwreck Beach and the Hyatt Hotel a couple of times as it was so close! We can definitely recommend this condo to anyone!

Best place EVER

  • 5 of 5

First, we are just turning 70 and have used VRBO for at least 20 years, everywhere we go. New York City, La Jolla, Outer Banks, Olympic Peninsula and so many places in between. Hawaii, last year too. We’ve probably stayed in 20+ places. There are always issues. We are pretty picky, expect what is sold to us.

This time to Hawaii, Kauai was our first stop, Maui followed. Greg and Shelley’s place is above every one we have ever stayed. Walk onto a tile front foyer and turn right to the living room which is more than ample with an L shaped dining room. The living room leads to the lanai with a table and four chairs plus two chaises and a table. We’d drag the chaises a few feet to soak up some sun when we chose to stay around. We’d also carry a few beach chairs about a short wedge to a grassy area down by the water to just sit peacefully with a cooler between us, watching the waves. There were several coolers, beach stuff, even a few rain slickers (rain slickers?) we grabbed for our Denali coast dinner cruise when we forgot ours from home. Want a/c? Not here with the breeze. Some nights we had to turn off the fans. The comfortable king bed, plenty of dresser and closet space and the master bath with dual sinks and a dressing counter with stool was great. But wait there’s more. Another half bath. Perfect for when I got up early for my walk and leave Jane sleeping a bit more. There’s a washer/dryer too.

The kitchen was the best, separated from the dining room by a bar stool counter. You know how you look for something you need, there isn’t and you have to improvise with another utensil? Uh… not here. This kitchen has almost everything Jane has at home down. I said almost everything because nobody has more than Jane in her kitchen. We have a backup coffee maker and so does this place. Last year in Kona, our coffee maker went on the fritz and it took two days to get a replacement.

Fifty yards cross the center lawn is a BBQ area we used several times then would move on to the pool which often was unoccupied just for us.

The property is adjacent to the Grand Hyatt Kauai, one of the crown jewels of Hyatt, where we strolled along paths passed pools and beach front to Shipwreck Beach. The Hyatt is massive and gracious in itself but we’d rather stay at our place with all our space than a single room for three times as much.

Kauai is our top Hawaiian island for relaxing and this our top rental ever, and we hope Greg and Shelly’s will be open as we shall return.
