About Esther S

Owner Operated, retired, live in Lihue and love Kauai. Most weeks you will find me hiking the many hiking trails to enjoy the hidden beauty and views on this island. I also bike the Kapaa ocean view 7 1/2 mile bike trail once a week to soak in the beautiful coastal views of Kauai. You will fall in love with the beauty and healing spirit of this island.

Esther S purchased this condo in 2013

Why Esther S chose Poipu

When I decided to purchase a vacation rental property, I chose a property that is quiet, away from the noise of the pool, on the second floor for safety reasons, beautiful garden views and a view of the ocean. Family & children friendly, with pack and play and stroller and wagons for the walkway to beach. You are within walking distance of the beach, for swimming and snorkeling. Poipu is known as 'Sunny Poipu', perfect weather. You will fall in love with the Poipu area along with many other Poipu lovers. Before purchasing this property, I made sure the coastal breezes flowed through to provide a cool and comfortable living experience. You do not have to worry about a parking spot at the beach because of a 5 minute walk to the beach. Also within walking distance a beautiful walk along the ocean to Shipwreck beach, frequently spotting turtles off shore and occasionally you might be blessed to see a monk seal sunning on the beach. I have walked this trail many times and enjoy the spectacular views each and every time. Several restaurants are within walking distance, The Grand Hyatt Resorts provide a variety of restaurants and a luau experience along with other smaller restaurants which are also a unique eating experience. You will love the variety of food on the island of Kauai. You cannot visit Kauai without taking the 'aloha spirit' with you when you return home. Please come and enjoy my vacation home. I will try to make your experience to Kauai a memorable one.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, beautiful views, walkway to beach, walking beach trail close by, restaurants within walking distance. Come and enjoy. Family and children friendly. Beach chairs. Pack & play, stroller and safety gate and quiet.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had 7 people stay comfortably in this condo. It was clean, well maintained, in a great location & was well stocked in the kitchen as well as all the beach gear. Location was perfect to Brennecke Beach / Poipu Beach Park and Shipwreck Beach. I liked how this condo did not face the parking lot or the pool so it was nice and quiet. My only complaint is that checkout was early for us and no option for a 1/2 day rate as a late checkout.

Owner's Response: Aloha Carol, I am so happy you enjoyed my condo. My condo is one of the most family-friendly condos ,with plenty of room, in the Poipu area. My goal is to stock my condo with almost everything you might need to make your vacation in Kauai a memorable experience. Cooking items, upgraded internet, toys, games, beach toys, pool toys, beach chairs, beach wagon, etc. I purchased this condo for the privacy and the silence away from pool noise, parking lot noise and street noise. Also you get the coastal breeze. Many times I can give a late check-out if I do not have new renters arriving later that day. I couldn't do that for you because I had to prepare immediately for new renters. If you need a late check-out, in the future, my advice for you and other future renters is to book another day if your plane leaves at 10:00pm in the evening, like your plane did. By booking the extra day, you get 12 exta hours on the beach and another full day in Kauai. Esther S. (owner)

Was perfect for what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Overall I was very impressed with what our condo had to offer. I feel like Esther had made great strides to make our stay enjoyable. There are multiple fans to keep everyone cool when the winds aren't blowing in off the coast. The condo is located in a perfect place when visiting Poipu. This was our first time to this island and location wise was wonderful. The condo was spacious and generally clean. There are some areas that could use to upgrading (windows, broken blinds) but nothing that truly affected our stay too much. The only gripe I saw was that the condo did offer a lot of awesome amenities. For example she had a pack n play, baby monitor, other random baby items. Also had a nice stroller just to name a few items we were able to take advantage of. There were numerous items to take to the beach and the carts were a life saver of course.

The only thing I found a little frustrating was that everything we were constantly finding in the condo is that we really had no idea it was offered in the first place. Half the items we found were not organized and weren't advertised in any way. It almost felt like every new door we opened there was something new and usable for our trip in some way.

Also a lot of the sand/beach items and toys we found were mostly broken and over used to the point I felt like I had to try them out before we got to the beach to make sure they were functional.

Nothing is perfect but for what is offered here it came pretty close. Just being nit picky. The condo has upgraded items and is close to everything as I stated before.

Thank you..

Beautiful Grounds

  • 3 of 5

Returned a few days ago from a 12 night stay in this unit. Condo was fine for the 7 of us plenty of space to move around. Beds were comfortable and it was nice having the fold out extra beds. We knew this unit did not have air just a heads up it did get very hot at night you need to use the fans at all times.

Loved the use of the beach chairs and the wagon was great to take down to the beach. The grounds around the complex are very beautiful and well maintained, easy walk to the beach. Pool was ok and nice having the use of the grills.

As far as the condo needs a good cleaning and some of the clutter removed. When we arrived the refrigerator had left over food and needed to be wiped out, freezer had food and a horrible fish smell. Cabinets are full and all your own grocery items have to be kept out on the counter. Keep all open food in storage bags because of roaches. Plus side for the kitchen you will have everything you will need for cooking.

Bathrooms needed to be cleaned also when we arrived tub had hair and sink had toothpaste. There were also used bottles of shampoo, cream rinse and bars of soap left from previous renters these items really need to be tossed using someone's bar of soap is gross!

The island is great easy drives from the condo to any part of the island short trip to and from the airport and great having a Costco for shopping. So many beautiful beaches and scenery is spectacular in all directions.

Great Location, Fabulous Accommodations, Amazing Owner

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with two seniors, two middle agers and two 20-30 something or others!!! We loved the place. The location was excellent. If you are a walker, you are not far from the beaches, the Grand Hyatt, the Local Shoppes, Brenneckes. If you are driving, then it is a short drive with plenty of parking to the Poipu Beach! The unit comes with everything you could possibly need. Beach carts are an excellent bonus. The greenery outside both lanai's is amazing. The ceiling fans and extra fans provided good air circulation and with the front door screen in place and the main door open there was a beautiful breeze sailing through.

There are plenty of things provided for smaller children to do inside the condo on those rainy days. TV is available, wifi was excellent (never spotty).

A minor thing was the area carpets were rolling up and slightly hazardous for the seniors we were with, solution was to tape the edges down and all was great. The owner popped in for a visit to make sure we were settled in and to see if we had any questions, absolutely delightful and always available when needed.

The resort area is very well maintained and the workers at the facility were friendly , polite and very courteous. We went to Lihue a few times and the drive was fast and relaxing and the same with the drive to Waimea Canyon. A bit of a long drive up the North, and there is still a lot to see while driving. With the provisions provided by the owner, it was great to be able to take the equipment with us everywhere and not worry about having to rent gear, coolers, boards etc.

We would return here and highly recommend the facility.

Mahalo for everything.
