Kauai Beaches: Poipu Kai resort fronts on two well known beaches... Shipwreck Beach and Brennecke Beach, each an excellent bodysurfing beach. Next to Brennecke beach is Poipu Beach Park, rated the best beach in North America for four years running. It features a sheltered "baby beach" for toddlers and parents, a fully equipped children's playground, and a great snorkeling and swimming beach with every variety of tropical fish usually only seen in aquariums. Surfing is also an excellent option at Poipu Beach with a surf shop and board rentals just across the street from the beach.
Kauai Restaurants: Brennecke's restaurant is a great place for lunch or dinner at the beach; good burgers, fish and drinks. They have a great crab meal for dinner. Don't forget Lapperts' ice cream for a real treat. It's fresh made in Hanapepe and definitely a landmark destination. They are located throughout the island: Hanapepe, Poipu (just a couple of miles from the house), Hanapepe, Kalaheo, and Kapa'a, etc.

ONE SENTENCE DESCRIPTION OF EXPERIENCE: This condo met ALL the needs of our family of 9 to enjoy the beautiful island of Kauai.
I am absolutely unable to articulate our deep appreciate for the extra ordinary comfort, cleanliness and amenities our family enjoyed at this magnificent condo. First stop after our arrival at the airport in Lihue was Costco for groceries for the week plus island favorites of chocolate covered macadamia nuts and Kauai coffee. Key pad access was a real plus. We didn’t have to worry, “who has the key?”The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, appliances and etc. to cook for our large family. All the beds were as comfortable as we have at home. It was just a short walk to the three pools and beach. It was very convenient to have rental site for boggy boards and snorkeling equipment at the beach as well as a stand to enjoy refreshing Hawaiian Ice. Activities included Sunset Cruise along the Na Pali Coast, Smith Family Garden Luau and Kayaking tour on the Wailua River to the Secret Falls. Thank you to owners/managers Jim and Juliana for their quick responses to my many questions before our trip. This was one of our most memorable family vacations to a “slice of paradise.”
We found the condo to be a perfect fit for our family of 12. We were all very comfortable with the bedrooms and bathrooms. Towels and kitchen items were supplied. The kitchen and dining room are great. The beach is perfect for small children. We kept coming back to this particular beach after visiting several beautiful beaches on the island. We loved our stay here. The complex is quiet and beautifully landscaped. We were a 5 min walk from the beach. We saw turtles, seals and dolphins. One morning we even saw whales. We had a great time and found this location to be convenient for all our adventures away from the condo. The pools and hot tubs are great as was the convenience of the gas grills. Had a wonderful time! Would recommend this location.
This location was a great spot for us to have our parents 50th anniversary celebration vacation. The size was perfect for the 11 of us, and we loved having the extra beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, etc to use. The size of the kitchen made the meals we prepared super easy to have everyone pitch in and help, and there were plenty of plates, glasses, etc for us to use. We loved that it was just a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops. Thanks so much! Wish we didn't have to leave.
This was a great condo for family vacationing. All the lanais we had access to made it private when needed! Equipped very well. Would recommend for anyone.
close to everything. all ammentities were as described. great for kids. would go back right away!!! wish we could!
This was a great condo for a large multi generational group. It had some benefits and it had just a couple opportunities. The place felt like home. It was decorated nice, had nice amenities and was in a great location.
Great layout for large family - had plenty of space to move, layout and still feel like we had room.
Beach supplies - large amount of supplied towels, 4 - 5 body boards, 3-4 chairs, umbrellas and bamboo mats.
Directions - lots of good directions everywhere, good follow up by Jim and juliana, good use of email, handwritten letters when you arrive.
Rooms - Great layouts with rooms with the multi twin beds for those with small kids. Good beds, lots of storage.
Showers - we would come back from the beach and EVERYONEwould take showers and we would all have hot water. We took about 9 showers and maintained hot water.
Icemaker - love this in a fridge.
Facility - quiet facility on second level and multiple pools to swim in. The location is nice for the price. Though not on the beach, it is a 10 minute walk east or west to Shipwreck Beach or to Poipu Beach.
A/C - was nice after runs and long days on the beach.
Shower - the pipes on many of the showers would shake very badly if you didn't turn the water hot enough. Taking a cold shower was not an option because of the shaking of the pipes.
Kitchen stock - While other vrbo's I've been in have been stocked with a little more then this one, this one did not have some simple items like sugar, spray oil, sweeteners, a tablespoon, ziplock bags. This isn't a big deal until you need those small items and don't have them.
Pots and Pans - We ate breakfast there every day and made many meals and I will say that none of the skillets are nonstick, even with butter.
I missed lots more beneifits I'm sure. The location was great on Poipu, the safety of the location was good, the beauty of the location is great. I would recommend this condo for big groups. It was perfect for our week.
I highly recommend this condo for any big group coming to Kauai! The entire place was very nicely decorated and made our large group feel at home. Each room had its own personality and everyone could have their own space when they wanted it. The kitchen was very well stocked and made preparing meals quite easy. The whole place was very clean and fitted with the most updated appliances and fixtures. We all appreciated the central air conditioning, as it was very warm for the week we were on Kauai. The condo is a quick walk to the beach and provided a good supply of beach towels and beach equipment. It was nice to also have pool access, and some of the pools had grills, which made for a few nice poolside dinners. Definitely stay here if you have a large group!
