About Jim Daugherty

We owned a condo in a much larger complex, After Hurricane Iniki we stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo in this quite little 35 unit condo complex, we fell in love with the views and the sound of the ocean and wanted to be able to share our little piece of heaven with others. We purchased our first unit in 2001 just below this one.

Jim Daugherty purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jim Daugherty chose Poipu

I went to high school on Kauai and even after I moved back to the mainland, a part of my heart always stayed on Kauai, the natural beauty, the wonderful people, and

the great aloha spirit kept calling me back. We owned a condo in a much larger complex that didn't have a pool and it felt less like family staying in Sunset Kahili is being with Ohana (family)

What makes this condo unique

You can stay in the lovely 2 bedroom unit #301 on the third floor at Sunset Kahili. You can see the white water below, and down the coast past Spouting Horn to the Island of Niihau.

You will hear the ocean waves crash below (what a lullaby at night), and you can see the water from almost every room of the Condo.

You will enjoy the provided beach chairs, beach towels, and an ice chest for your travels to great beaches and picnics areas around the Island. The Master bedroom has a King size bed, with a large shower in the bathroom, The living room and dining room are equipped with TV, DVD, CD player including IPOD hook up, and high speed internet. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and a second full bath. There is a fully stocked kitchen, with small and large appliances, full compliment of cookware and table settings for a party of eight, plus a washer and dryer. The Balcony is the best spot on the Island for Sunsets (thus the name Sunset Kahili). , a dining table with 4 chairs and lounge chairs on the balcony for your comfort plus binoculars for viewing.

The complex also provides a large community room, swimming pool, an assigned parking space, and 2 BBQs.

This is a smoke free building both inside and out.

Outstanding Views

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a fantastic view from almost every window! And the best view of all is from the balcony. I could have sat there all day. This home is clean and comfortable. Everything you would need is there. Communication with the owner was on time and smooth. I had a quick question for him while I was there and he was helpful and friendly. The location was great, easy to find and very close to Poipu Beach.

We have a couple of area recommendations: very close by is the Plantation Gardens restaurant. Super pretty, pleasant gardens that surround you while dining on the deck. And the food was very good. Another restaurant that has a beautiful tropical setting and fun atmosphere is Keoki’s Paradise. They have Hawaiian entertainment while you eat and the food is good as well.

We also went to the amazing Allerton Gardens. We really enjoyed the varied “gardens within the garden” and the history was really interesting. Great tour!

We didn’t get a chance to go to the beaches here as we had only had a few nights at this part of Kauai. But we were very glad we got a chance to stay here.

I would definitely recommend this rental.

We stayed for 6 nights and had a great time in the Poipu area - Jim's Condo is better than the photos being a corner Condo , it is very light you can see the ocean and actual marine life ! rooms and patio are spacious , beds comfy, kitchen well equiped - all newly very tastefully renovated - ideally located between Poipu main beach and Shipwrecks - we hopefully will be back - highly recommended

Jim has a beautiful well kept property. Easy walk to the beach and great location to travel anywhere on the island. The owners at the condo are all really friendly and welcome guests. We had a great week in this well equipped condo. Jim is very accommodating making it an easy decision as where to stay next time we come to this beautiful island paradise.

Perfect unit in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This corner unit condo on the third floor over looking the ocean near Poipu Beach has been recently renovated and has plenty of amenities for our vacation. We could walk to town or along the coastal trail and drive to the west or north sides in a reasonable time.

The unit had plenty of kitchenware, washer and dryer, beach towels and chairs, a nice patio set and decent internet. We watched the whales and New Years Eve fireworks from the balcony. Lovely place to stay.
