This is a premier end unit and has all the privacy for your vacation. We have no one above us or below us which allows for a stress free stay. When you rent with us, you get our home, not something you haven't seen. Being an end unit we have many windows which allows the floral trade winds to cool the house down during the day and at night.

The upstairs master bedroom is the most special place in our home. It features two separate lanais. One with an ocean view, great spot for coctails or dining and is breath-taking at sunset and the other offers a shaded area to read and relax. With two doors it also offers a beautiful breeze and you can wake up to the sound of the birds. We have a ceiling fan as well in the master suit. There is a bright elevated sitting/office area located in the master bedroom area along with a flat screen TV. The master bathroom is large and bright with a walk-in glass block shower that has a special etched window with beautiful views to enjoy first thing in the morning.

A 2-3 minute walk to the ocean and stunning ocean front pool which is only accessable to Manualoha residents and has a bathroom. A second pool that you have access to has a hot tub and overlooks the tennis courts and close to Kalapaki Joes.

You can picture yourself walking along a paved, lighted path to Brenneckes and beautiful Poipu Beach Park, or in the opposite direction to the Grand Hyatt Hotel and Shipwreck Beach. Just past the hotel you will discover a walking trail that winds it's way along the ocean next to the Poipu Bay Golf Course, ending at wonderful Mahaulepu Beach.

The island of Kauai is easily navigated from the south shores of Poipu. Koloa Town, just minutes away, offers restaurants, art galleries, wine shops and island shopping in the quaint village.

Visit breath-taking Waimea Canyon and hike the miles of trails within the canyon. Head to Princeville and Hanalei on the north shore, just an hour away for additional beaches, hiking and the must see Na Pali Coast.

We invite you to enjoy our island home and discover first-hand why Kauai is called the garden island and is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Our Island home is really something special and you won't be dissapointed. In fact those that stay with us know why we are bought it. You are not closing curtians at night because others can see in, you are not infront of other condo windows, no one walks by and gazes into while on thier evening walks, it's private and that makes all the difference in any vacation.

Why Kimberly Schick-Puddicombe chose Kauai

We just love the privacy of this home. We have two children and it gives them enough room to play outside, as an end unit we enjoy more privacy than most. We have NO one Above or Below us and it gives us room to enjoy the vacation. We bought it because it is a part of the Manualoha area of the resort, it's a premier end unit that has completely been renovated to make this home perfect for a short or long stay.

Welcome to our Island home!

1st visit to Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This trip was a double celebration - my sister lost 135 pounds (I promised her a trip to HI if she lost 100 pounds) and my cousin was getting married. The condo was shared by my sister and her husband and me. Our family members rented numerous homes/condo in the Poipu area and this one was the best.

I would have normally given my sister and her husband the incredible upstairs master suite, we determined with her knee problem the stairs would be difficult for her to negotiate on a routine basis. They were perfectly happy with the downstairs king size bedroom with its comfortable bath. We had coffee many mornings on the upstairs deck with the view of the ocean. Most of our relaxing however was done on the lanai. It was very comfortable with breezes keeping it cool.

We prepared almost all of our meals in the wonderful kitchen (eating out only 3 lunches) and cooked our meats outside on the well maintained grill, finding everything we needed.

When we arrived the keys with the pools we not inside the condo. We called Terri, the property manager and she was there within 5 minutes to ensure we had adequate keys. She called a couple of time to insure everything was going well. Additionally, we received a call from Kimberly,

This rental is one I would rent again the next time I return to Kauai. Thank you Kimberly and Grant for making your home available. Mahalo

Wonderful location and condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned back from a week on Kauai with our children and my mother. We absolutely loved staying in this unit. It was our first time in Manualoha having stayed at Lawai Beach Resort and Poipu Makai other times. Walking to Poipu beach was a pleasure and a breeze (5-7 mins) from the condo. Having a 5 and a 10 year old with us, it was nice that no one needed to be carried home from the beach, even when our youngest developed a case of swimmer's ear! The pools were enjoyed by our girls also. I love to cook and found the kitchen to be perfectly stocked and in great condition. It was absolutely a breeze to prepare meals in it. When we didn't, we often ended up walking to Kalapaki Joe's and were very pleasantly surprised by the good quality of food there. The upstairs master suite was a dream. It was so nice to wake to the gorgeous view each day and to take a shower with the same view, too. Just delightful. The second bedroom with it's King sized bed was just perfect for my mother and our girls to share also. There were ample beach toys and even snorkel masks and snorkels right in the condo so our girls were able to practice with those before we rented a set for them to have fun in the ocean with. This ensured our investment would not be wasted in case they didn't take to snorkeling. Everything was so thoughtfully laid out in the condo from furnishings to toys and on top of it all was the terrific location and excellent condition of the condo...we would gladly return in a heartbeat and only wish we didn't have to travel from the East Coast to do it :)

Great condo experience with sunset and ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect place for two couples to enjoy access to the great beaches and restaurants in the Poipu area. Kimberly and Grant were extremely accessible via email and by phone, offering plenty of good information about the area. The condo was clean, updated and well maintained. Our week there was very quiet and relaxed. The main floor lanai w/ a garden view was perfect for dinners al fresco; and the open and modern living and dining space were extremely comfortable. The upstairs master suite was especially amazing w/ a comfortable king sized bed, open shower/bath and two attached decks - one with expansive ocean and sunset views. The grounds at Poipu Kai are always well-maintained, and although the larger pool was closed at the time of our vacation, we had access to the smaller pool. The description is accurate that you are just minutes from Poipu and Brennecke beaches. We saw whales from the shoreline, as well as turtles and monk seals. All and all, a fabulous vacation for the four of us. We would return to this condo again.

Very clean and quiet location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! The end unit was very quiet and it was just a short walk to the beach. My in-laws joined us, and they stayed downstairs, my husband and I brought our two sons with us (ages 2 and 4) and we stayed upstairs. Beautiful views from the upstairs lanai! We will definitely return here again someday! The beach toys and boogie boards were nice, as well as the umbrella. We really didn't have to buy anything for our stay. The here was even a cooler for us to use!

Great location. Stocked with everything our family needed!

  • 5 of 5

I spent countless hours looking up places to stay in Kauai, and could not decide! We finally settled on Manualoha because of the pack-n-play and all of the beach gear that was reportedly stocked in the condo. We arrived, and were easily able to get in to the condo. We were in a condo complex, but the condo felt very private. Everything was very clean and welcoming. We loved the short walk to the beach and restaurants near by. We went to the Hyatt for coffee and sunrise watching multiple days- what a view! There are great grocery stores and shopping just minutes away. There's a great Kauai uncovered book that we borrowed and used to guide our vacation. Our favorite thing was the Holo holo Charters sunset cruise- we used a Kauai Babysitting service (Pat McGary- Babysitters of Kauai 808-632-2252) so that we could enjoy the boat tour. We would have loved to go on their snorkeling tour, but we didn't want to leave our little guy for that long! The kitchen has everything you need from spices to olive oil balsamic vinegar, etc. They even provided dishwasher detergent and laundry soap! Hotel-like stay, with shampoo/conditioner and soap in the showers. Sadly, there were NO trade winds during our stay, so the lack of air-conditioning was pretty uncomfortable, especially upstairs. Thankfully they have 4 floor fans, so we had 2 upstairs and 2 in the downstairs bedroom, which helped tremendously. We used to cooler everyday to bring a packed lunch to the beach. We made breakfast, coffee and smoothies in the morning- there is a missing part to the blender lid, but I just put a lid over it. We grilled out one night at the nice community grill just feet from the front door. We loved the organic/local foods market called Living Foods just down the road. All-in-all, a wonderful stay and we couldn't have been happier to have Manualoha as our home base! Thanks Grant and Kimberly!

Beautiful condo, great location, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Grant and Kimberly's condo is simply perfect! With the upstairs master suite I was able to have some peace and quiet away from my 2-year old. Everything you need to enjoy the beach is stocked at the condo. Snorkels are the only thing not provided, but Kimberly said that's due to health reasons, which I can understand.

Kimberly provided outstanding communication throughout the reservation. The morning after we arrived one of the hair dryers quit working and she had one delivered the next day! There was also a portable crib and two booster seats for my daughter to use.

The location couldn't be better. It's about a 7 min walk to Poipu beach. It was so close we never even used the pool! We enjoyed watching the exotic (to us) local birds off the back patio, the little lizards and the resident bullfrog. Josselin's Tapas Bar was a fantastic meal out, but mostly we cooked our meals in. The Big Save market and Living Foods were our favorite places to buy groceries.

Can't recommend Kimberly and the Manualoha condo highly enough! We will definitely be back!

We are located in the Poipu Kai resort and you will have access to a pool that overlooks the ocean waves and beach as well as another pool and hot tub located next to the tennis courts.

Lots of open grass area for kids to explore and walk ways to Brenneke's Beach and to the Hyatt Regency that are lovely for a day or night stroll. Watch the turtles play in the waves and even frog hunt at night with the kids.

There is yoga on the beach, boogie boarding just steps away as well as a toddler beach and playground. A lifeguarded beach, lots of great beach walks and close to shops and restaurants and tours. This side of the island tends to achieve less rain than the north side of the island. You can do day trips to the north or other sides of the island as the road around the island is easy to navigate and lots of wonderful places to see around the island.

Kauai is know as the Garden Island because of all the beautiful flowers everywhere and the fresh floral smell is prevalent especially when you land.
