Poipu Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

ON THE OCEAN condominium with awesome views. SURF - SNORKEL - SUNBATH - SIGHT SEE - or SIMPLY relax.

The minute you step in the door you are welcomed by the most spectacular view of the beautiful and tropical Pacific Ocean. We are directly facing the ocean!

This is a recently remodeled (June 2014) two bedroom, 2 bath condo that sleeps 6. There is a King Size Bed in the master, a Queen size bed in the second bedroom and a Queen sofa bed in the living area. We are on the second floor (with elevator close by) which allows for a seamless connection between the condo and the ocean below. The ocean is directly in front of you. You are floating over the Waves and the blue waters of the Pacific as far as you can see. Offers great privacy as no other units can see into your space.

With Floor to Ceiling and Wall to Wall Windows, watch the sea, surfers and turtles from the Living room, Dining room or Lanai. Whales go by in the winter months. The Turtles feed almost every day directly in front. Sunbathe or enjoy one of the islands best snorkeling locations at the beach right next to the condo, or walk up the road to see the island's blow hole. Between the spectacular views and sunsets and the soothing sound of the waves, you are instantly transformed into vacation mode.

The kitchen is newly remodeled with new flooring, cabinets, granite counter tops and new appliances. It's fully furnished with everything you need to cook in or enjoy a drink or dinner from one of the islands best restaurants and bars, The Beach House, which is located right next door.

Both the en suite bath and shower and the hall second bath have been fully remodeled. The hall bath has double sinks and both have custom tile work with premium finishes.

Our custom art work on the walls adds to the Hawaiian feel. You are not in a typical rental.

There are also BBQ's on site for your use. There is a new Flat Screen TV in the living area and both Cable and Wireless Internet are provided. With a smart TV, netflix is built in and available for your use. There is a parking lot for easy access.

The popular tourist areas of Poipu are just a mile or so away, as well as the historic town of Koloa and the grocery store. The Shops at Kukui'ula are an easy walking distance with many fine restaurants, ice cream and shopping.

Welcome to our favorite place. Enjoy the peace, relaxation and adventure the island of Kauai brings.

About Karen Ness

My husband and I love the ocean. We are always amazed at the ocean's ability to calm and relax us the minute we step in the door.

Karen Ness purchased this condo in 2003

Why Karen Ness chose Kauai

We came on vacation and after staying at Kuhio Shores knew we wanted to own a condo there. We love Kauai and the condo location is just perfect. There is no other building on the island like it. Being only 30 feet from the ocean and watching the waves and the turtles is mesmerizing. We love it.

What makes this condo unique

We love how the living, dining and kitchen areas of the condo directly face the ocean. With floor to ceiling windows and mirrors on the side walls, the ocean views come in from all angles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our Hawaii Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo 7 times now over the last 10 years - and it gets more fabulous each year. They owners take very good care and keep updating things. They are so nice to work with - just a pleasure. The condo is right on the water where you can watch turtles feed. You hear the sound of crashing waves as you enjoy your meals in the renovated kitchen/nook area. Comfy beds, two full bathrooms - perfect for a family of 4 - or for those who have small children - as someone can stay in the condo while they nap and the others can go snorkeling right in front and swim with turtles. A few minutes walk from a newly developed shopping center with a Lapperts for coffee and ice cream and a Living Foods (like a mini Whole Foods) - and one building over is the famous Beach House Restaurant. We just love this condo, with the amenities and owners who really care - their love for Kauai is obvious - now there are paintings by the owner that adorn the walls. Netflix and other TV options included - free WiFi. Laundry facilities in the building.

Awesome views and sounds of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation we just had. The condo had awesome views and sounds of the oceans. We saw turtles everyday, beautiful sunsets, and great snorkeling over by the beach house - if you take fish food with you - the fish will swarm around you. It was awesome to see! After visiting the entire island, I highly recommend staying on the south shore. Great access to the west shore and east shore. Not much to do in the north shore except see the beaches - which were great as well. Definitely need to return to Kaua'i...

Gorgeous Ocean Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at this beautiful condo. You are close to the ocean's edge and can watch the turtles, surfers and snorkelers from the balcony. Gorgeous ocean views day and night! The condo, located in a quiet, well-maintained complex, was clean and comfortably furnished. The beds were comfortable as well, including the sofa bed which our daughter slept on so she could hear the ocean all night long! Conveniently located for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. Karen and Dave provided information on places to visit, shop and restaurants as well as guide books which we found most helpful. A truly wonderful vacation on an island paradise!

Best first Hawaii trip ever!!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was just as described. We watched turtles from linae every day. Condo was clean and had everything we needed. After a quick stop at CostCo upon arrival, we were all set. I really loved location. I walked to a few different snorkel spots. The areas most popular dive spot is just blocks away. Fathom 5 is awesome dive company. Restaurant next door has wonderful food and excellent views of sunset. Lovely drive to road's end at either end of island. Book this place and enjoy!!

If you love the sound of the ocean, this is the place!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Kuhio Shores before but never ocean front, and were delighted with this condo! Every time you looked out the window there it was. The ocean! The condo was exactly as we were expecting it to be, and very comfortable and well supplied. The bed was super comfy!! We love the location as we prefer a more quiet area, and the food at the Beach House is the absolute best!! Great access to Weimea Canyon and our favorite shave ice, JoJo's (not JoJo's on the Avenue). And our evening walk to the coffee shop each evening ... it's the best! Thank you so much for your lovely accommodations, and I really appreciated having that blender!!
