Great Location

  • 3 of 5


-Philip is a very kind host. We locked ourselves out (and improperly followed the instructions to avoid such a predicament) and he graciously came within the hour to help us get in. Phew! He responded quickly to other needs and was always more than polite.

-The location for Poipu was perfect. Not having to wrangle our toddler into the car to get to the beach was awesome. Driving was required to get to any grocery stores but with a little planning, only had to do a couple times that week.

-All the beach stuff was stocked- the chairs, the mats, the umbrellas, ya!

-The apartment was lovely, well furnished, thoughtfully laid out and clean.


Unfortunately, these were mostly out of the owners control.

-The neighbors smoked up a storm. The apartment, being on the second floor and in Hawaii, was HOT and needed the ventilation of open windows. However, with the smoke, it was really uncomfortable to have the windows open. So this pregnant mama of a toddler was very uncomfortable.

-The wifi was spotty. I think I gathered that someone was moving out but either way, all the "premier" channels were iffy at best.

-The only toiletry provided was bar soap. Bummer, dude.

-No baby gear (we knew that coming but one can always hope) and when we offered to leave our brand new gear that we'd purchased on the trip, we were declined. Sorry future families, we tried!

Poipu is a lovely place to stay. We had a great time and were grateful for a clean place to rest our heads at the end of the day. We felt safe and felt that we could contact the owners if we really needed help.

Clean, comfortable and GREAT location!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in the giant condo complexes of Poipu before and this was so much better! While still within a 15 min walk to the Grand Hyatt for my conference, this place was less than a block from Poipu Beach. It's clean, comfortable, quiet and the kitchen is nicely supplied for cooking your own meals. I look forward to coming back to stay at Artists Retreat!

Amazing! Perfect place if you want to snorkel!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! We took our boys to Poipu for there first trip ever. The one thing that was our goal was to hang out at the beach and snorkel. It was perfect. We saw turtles or monk seals or both everyday. The accommodations had everything from beach chairs to swimming noodles. We even left sandcastle supplies there. No need to buy bug spray either, there is plenty of that. In the kitchen there is everything from toddy makings to pineapple splitters. They have lots of extras. The only one thing I would say is don't get a large size vehicle because it won't fit in the parking space. Close to lots of restaurants. There is a little place to rent boogie boards, surf boards etc. a half block away. You will be totally set if you stay here. It was very nice and neat. Beautiful pictures and decorations in every room. We would come back!

It is very nice and comfortable. Very nicely decorated.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time there. The owner were very accommodating.We had 4 adults in our group and the condo gave us plenty of space. The beds were super comfortable. Very nicely decorated and had everything we needed. The only thing we didn't understand was were they got 100 steps from the beach. But the beach is fairly close.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our unit, the 100 steps is from the drive way to the beach park at the beginning of the street. Mahalo Philip & Joanne
