This condo was perfect for our group of 3. Comfortable, clean, and spacious. Great location just a few steps from Poipu beach. The condo is well stocked with supplies and had everything we needed.

Look no further ~ this property has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is as lovely & beautiful as the pictures & equipped to fill your every need. Our hostess, Joanne has literally thought of everything that her guests might need during their stay. I found her to be charming and willing to help in whatever possible. I found everything to be clean & comfortable. The grounds are immaculate. The bonus is the lovely park and beach just a short walk away. This will be my "go to" place on my future trips to the island. I have absolutely no reservations on recommending this rental to anyone visiting Kauai.

Loved our stay! Beautiful and conveniently located apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Joanne and Philip's lovely apartment. It is so centrally located and walking distance from Poipu beach. The apartment is beautifully decorated and felt clean. We loved the peek-a-boo ocean view and the natural light from the large windows in the living room. The beds were very large and comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen was great for cooking and bbqing. Due to the warm tropical climate, we kept all of our food supplies in the fridge at all times.

Very much enjoyed our stay! Would love ot come back and stay again! Thanks again Joanne and Philip for your hospitality!

Very NICE condo!

  • 5 of 5

Homeaway did it again! My daughter and I were pleasantly surprised to walk into such a nice condo that was very clean, modern and had everything we needed. It made us feel like we were the first ones to rent the place! Also, there were extra amenities to enjoy the beach (chairs, cooler, etc). Location was perfect - literally steps to Poipu beach. We were also within walking distance of several nice bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend it and consider staying there again!

PS - not a bug in sight and even if there was, it is Hawaii for heavens sake!!

cockroach condo

  • 1 of 5

Let me first say I come to Hawaii 2x a year for 2 weeks at a time. Never had this problem before.I booked this property for April 2 to April 7, 5 nights. The property was nice but when we returned from dinner, there were cockroaches in the kitchen, in the bathroom, crawling over the counters. I contacted the owner, Phillip Burkhardt and he said he'd be over in the morning to use boric acid and set traps. I am scent sensitive and didn't like the idea of cockroaches crawling over me in the night. We went to a hotel. I called the owner in the morning and said we couldn't return to the condo due to the conditions. He refused any refund. He later sent me an email saying he would refundt he cleaning fee and the property damage fee. He has done this , but I feel we should be refunded the tax and the full rent since we didn't get to stay there due to unhealthy conditions. Once he gets the pest problem under control it would be a nice place to stay. It's pretty and well decorated. I just wish it had not had this problem. Great location too!

Owner's Response: We do not have a cock roach infestation. This is the tropics and roaches and other insects do very well here ,so you can find them any were at any time, they can come in with groceries and luggage and many other ways. We have traps and we use boric acid behind the refrigerator and "eco smart" insect barrier around the base boards.The association has a pest service for the exterior of the building. We spoke to two other occupants and they did not report any roaches. This is the first time that any one has ever complained about roaches in the unit and we pride our selves on having a clean and well appointed unit and are disappointed that we were unable to accommodate this guest.
