About Bruce Trubo

We live in Avila Beach along the central coast of California. We fulfilled our dream of owning a piece of Hawaii by recently purchasing this Poipu Sands unit. We have visited the various islands of Hawaii many times since our honeymoon 33 years ago. We always seem to gravitate back to the 'garden Island' of Kauai and specifically sunny Poipu Beach. Within the small community of Poipu, we fell in love with the tranquility, proximity, and amenities of the Poipu Sands development. Combined with fresh papaya and Kona coffee, we look forward to many more mornings watching the tropical sunrise from off our lanai or down at the adjacent Grand Hyatt. We hope to share our good fortune with you, as you relax and drift away to the sounds and smells of paradise. Aloha!

Bruce Trubo purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bruce Trubo chose Kauai

After many visits to the Hawaiian islands, we found ourselves drawn back to the lush, tropical 'Garden Island' of Kauai. With it's rivers and waterfalls, breathtaking Napali coastline, pristine beaches, and undeveloped tropical greenery, Kauai defines paradise. The south side of the islands beckons the most days of sunshine which characterizes why we chose 'sunny Poipu'. Finally, the Poipu Sands Resort offers a peaceful, private, tranquility not found at many of the other larger developments. It's proximity to a beautiful beach, a short stroll past the Grand Hyatt to the bluffs beyond Shipwreck Beach, your private tennis court and heated pool, BBQ's to grill up some fresh fish, chicken, or steak, enormous greenbelt for sun and safe play.....the list goes on as to why we knew after many visits that Poipu Sands had it all!!

What makes this condo unique

Just a short stroll down our frontage path will lead you to the Hyatt and the Mahaulepu Coastal Trail, which begins just beyond the beach. This trail is a special part of the Kauai History Heritage site and the last stretch of accessible coastline on the South Shore that has not been developed. This gorgeous coastal hike takes you across a variety of easy to moderate terrain with incredible ocean vistas, tidepools, sacred lava burial grounds, and even a sinkhole cave. The area provides a safe haven for marine life, such as sea turtles and the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. The trail leads to beautiful Mahaulepu Beach, a great place to spot whales in the winter or observe (from a distance) a monk seal napping on the beach.

Next door to the Sands, you can wander around the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa`s lush tropical gardens or indulge in a reviving treatment at the world-class Anara Spa. This lovely setting lets you easily explore the natural wonders of our Garden Isle of Kauai, as well as dine at several delightful restaurants or enjoy their galleries and shops. Treat yourself to one of Kauai`s best luaus, featuring authentic dance, events and cuisine.

Lovely, very well equipped condo in ideal spot

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as advertised and described in the listing and other reviews. The quality of the furnishings is very good, and the condo was by far the best stocked condo we have ever rented. It even had two seats outside the door where you could take your shoes (or slippahs) off before coming in. Great location, close to everything on the South Shore. Bruce replied very quickly to all communications and was very helpful.

The walk along the cliffs that he recommends is one of the highlights of the trip. In the three weeks we were there, I must have done the walk 10-12 times. I would never tire of it. Try walking at least as far as the sinkhole, a fascinating tour when it's open.

If you're looking for a beautiful, worry-free holiday in paradise, this is it.

Condo with great location, furnishings and suppplies

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as advertised and described by other reviewers. Everything a visitor might need was there (even a lemon presser), the furnishings were of good quality (including chairs outside where you could sit to take off your shoes), and far more and better quality supplies than in any rental condo we've ever been in. In addition, Bruce responded very quickly and positively to every inquiry.

The walk along the cliffs in the morning to the sinkhole, as described by Bruce, was a highlight.

Highly recommended.

Beautiful condo in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Poipu Sands. The unit is in a fabulous location- close to beach, pool and snorkeling. We took long walks every day- on different paths and trails. Great to be close to the Hyatt if you want a little resort time, but we prefer the quiet and calm away from the crowds. This condo has everything you need. Loved it!

Very good unit at a great place

  • 5 of 5

Kauai is fabulous and Poipu has most to offer as a destination with fine weather and distances to more exotic, but wetter parts at some periods, quite manageable. The Sands has a great location in Poipu, quiet, well maintained and very close to the ocean (and reliable turtle viewing within 200 metres or so). The grounds are contiguous with the Hyatt hotel. The specific unit is beautifully furnished and in a good location - ground floor but light and airy with excellent kitchen and bathroom fittings. Indeed, the owner has thought of everything you need. He is also very precise, prompt and professional in every regard but helpful in practicalities such as, for us, leaving luggage beifroe specified arrival time. Yes, a holiday rental but one showing care and pride in ownership. A good choice

Clean, Well Maintained Unit

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this until for 6 nights in late October/early November with my husband and two children. The unit was spotlessly clean and well stocked with everything you'd need/want while on vacation.

The unit is great. It is very well maintained and exactly as pictured and described. The lanai has a great garden view with ocean views just 5 steps off the lanai. Shipwreck Beach is just a 5 minute walk away!

The temperature outside stayed around 80 during our stay and the unit was perfectly comfortable with the use of the 3 overhead fans and the doors open to create a cross breeze. At no point did the unit feel too hot or uncomfortable.

Poipu Sands is a quiet complex without an onsite concierge. It felt very secluded. The unit is nicely situated near the end of the complex, making it very quiet and peaceful. The pool could use a bit of TLC but overall the grounds are well maintained. This is not a particularly family friendly complex with child friendly amenities (i.e. pool depth starts at 4 feet). This was perfectly okay for my family but it's just something to keep in mind when determining if this place is good for you.

I was traveling with a 4 year old and a small infant. I probably would not recommend the unit for families with 2 mobile children; it's kind of small for four people and not necessarily childproof, but it was ok for us because my infant isn't yet crawling and the two of us were able to keep a close eye on the 4 year old.

Bruce was quick to respond to my inquiries and very easy to work with. At Bruce's suggestion, I contacted the local property management company on a Saturday morning to request more pool towels and they were delivered within a couple of hours. Fantastic service!
