The 'Romance Cottage' at Poipu Sands is a stand-alone unit, with No Neighbors above or on any side. It enjoys much of the privacy that a single house offers, but it shares in the all the amenities offered by Poipu Sands and the Poipu Kai Resort, such as pools and tennis courts. It is a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) down the path to Shipwreck Beach and the Grand Hyatt. The Heated Pool is directly in front of the unit, but far enough as to not be any distraction. The BBQ is also in this area, making pool side dinners possible. This is the best pool on the island, and is seldom crowded, as there are several pools available within the Poipu Kai Resort complex.
You can literally walk anywhere. A 5 minute walk along a shore trail takes you to a vantage point over the ocean, where you can watch numerous turtles play in the surf, and you can also be in the prime spot for sunset. Walk to the Hyatt to enjoy one of their fantastic restaurants, or a luau.
Several walking paths within the resort will take you to other pools and tennis courts, and down to Brennecke Beach. What a spot! Go a little further to one of the island's best beach destinations, Poipu Beach Park. Poipu Beach was named America's Best Beach by The Travel Channel, ranking top among the 10 'best' beaches selected nationwide. This beach is a series of golden sand crescents, strung together where beach-goers will find snorkeling, swimming, a natural ocean wading pool, boogie-boarding and surfing.
Back at the cottage, you will find windows on all 4 sides, allowing the cooling trade winds to pass through. This is a deluxe property, with furniture from Tommy Bahama and Ratana. The carpets are new, the upholstery was just replaced, and the kitchen is more than you could hope for. Here you will find plenty of cabinet space, premium appliances, granite counters, and all the kitchen tools and small appliances to enjoy meals right at home. The large covered lanai provides a great place to relax and enjoy friends, or a great book.
There are two bedrooms, one with a king bed and bath, and the other has twins that can be made into a king bed as well, upon request. It has an adjacent bath, with tub and shower.
There is a laundry, so you don't need to bring all that luggage and pay extra baggage fees! Unlike some of the units at Poipu Sands, you can park right in front, making it a short walk for groceries and your luggage.
There is a large desk and area to work on a computer, if you wish to do business during your stay. If you just want to keep in touch with your friends and family back home, there is wireless high speed internet, allowing you to surf the net from the lanai or the bedroom. There is a high definition 47' flat screen TV, and a surround sound stereo, in the living room. The Romance Cottage is stocked with books, games, DVD’s, music CD’s, beach gear and lots of aloha – totally turnkey. The only thing missing is you in your island paradise home away from home!
This is the way to go and maximize your vacation experience. The convenience of a resort, with the privacy of a house. You shouldn't have to settle for anything less, and It Doesn't Have To Cost More!

My family and I stayed at Poipou Sands, #621 for one glorious week in July. We found this second story "stand alone" unit absolutely charming. The location is stellar and could not be better situated for the sights and sounds of my favorite Hawaiian island, Kauai. Located in Poipu, my favorite part of Kauai, this unit has everything a family or couple could ask for. There are windows on all sides and a fabulous lanai running along the front. The breezes are heavenly. The beds and couches are very comfortable and luxurious. There are two full bathrooms so there is no fighting for showers. The kitchen is fully equipped, beautiful and very functional. We enjoyed many meals there and saved our vacation funds for one meal out each day. My children especially enjoyed the upgraded audio visual features, pools and the beach. The pools were well maintained, large and good for fun and lap swimming. The beach was but minutes away by foot. Me, I especially loved the comfy chairs which were perfect for relaxing and reading. In sum, the attention to detail in this unit is evident everywhere. I would highly recommend this "bit of paradise" to anyone interested in a top notch unit at a reasonable price.
We stayed a week over Xmas and had a great time. We would definitely recommend this condo. The description is spot on. I would just add a few comments:
- The condo has pretty much everything you will need. Make sure to check the closet in the second bedroom for a wide variety of beach gear, tennis stuff, etc.
- It's about a 5-minute walk to the beach in front of the Hyatt (which for some reason is completely uncrowded), a few more minutes to Shipwreck Beach. It's about a 20-minute walk on the greenbelt to Poipu Beach.
- The manager is very responsive. We reported one minor maintenance issue (porch light was out) and the handyman was over the next day to fix it.
- You really have no immediate neighbors, so the condo is very quiet (roosters notwithstanding). The only caveat is there are garbage cans in the parking lot behind the condo, which for some reason they like to empty early in the morning.
- You'll want to have a car, unless you're planning on eating at the Hyatt every day.
- The grills are in great shape and we were always able to find an available one.
My boyfriend and I stayed for one week and we never wanted to leave! The condo has everything you need to feel at home! beautiful bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, common area and great patio looking out at the pool. The location is unbelievable. Located walking distance to shipwreck beach and right next door to the #1 grossing Hyatt in the world. Staying at Poipu sands gives you the luxury of enjoying a pool and barbecue in your area, the resort pools, the beach, etc. The kitchen allows for families and couples to save $ and cook amazing dinners. We shopped in Koloa and bought local fresh fish and cooked at the barbecue at the Poipu Sands pool.
The condo is steps away from ocean views and walking distance from the best snorkeling ever...Brenneke's beach.
Whether you are looking for adventure or leisure, staying at this condo was the best decision we made for our Kaui vacation.
Our stay was nothing short of awesome. I loved the open feel to this condo, the tasteful decor, and especially the huge lanai! We also enjoyed the terrific audio and video setup for watching movies after our kids went to bed. The owner had described the pool as perhaps the best on the island—no argument there, it was incredible and our kids loved it! We also had two beautiful beach days at nearby Poipu beach park—a convenient 5-minute drive away. Highly recommended.
First time to Kauai and this condo made the trip that much better!! Location is amazing with pathways right at your doorstep leading to different beaches and restaurants! Condo was great and spacious- loved having no neighbors, even though the whole development is so nice, peaceful and quiet already! The condo was stocked with basic stuff like spices and other cooking things wish made cooking there so much more easier!! Would definitely rent again!
We thought this unit needs some updating. Carpet feels sticky. Front door automatic hing needs to be replaced. Bathrooms need clorox. Some of ceiling fans need to be checked. This unit has no ocean view. Pool was wonderful. This was our 5th stay on Kauai.
Pleasantly surprised. Large 2 bedroom layout with the entire front of Glass letting light in. No Air ... no Heat .... because it's not needed. Temp is PERFECT. We had a unit with no neighbors on either side which was great. Hyatt next door for beach and and upscale amenities if desired. Kauai is likely one of the most beautiful places on earth. We would return... and would rent this place again in a heartbeat !
