Fantastic Townhouse in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Can't think of one negative thing to say about this place! So well set-up for 2 couples and such a beautiful and spacious townhouse. Gail was wonderful to deal with and provides her renters with all the necessities and more for a very reasonable price. The beds were extremely comfy, 2 big full sized bathrooms (one for each couple) and another half bath upstairs. So nice having our own washer and dryer to use as well. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and has great appliances. We cooked the majority of our own meals and loved eating out on the lanai and taking in the gorgeous sunsets. The grounds in this complex are immaculate with 2 pools close by and a walking path down to 2 beaches. Breneke's Beach, which is directly across the street from one of the pools, doesn't have much beach area but we saw several large turtles out in the ocean there and some up close when we walked up and over the rocks to the left of the beach. Beautiful quiet spot to sit and watch the ocean. Poipu Beach Park is fairly busy but has a nice big beach area and a fantastic spot for snorkeling. There are so many colorful fish right close to the shore, you can actually wade into the water and see them swimming around you without even snorkeling. Thanks for providing a set of snorkel gear Gail. Awesome hike right out your door ("Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail"). This trail actually starts at Shipwreck Beach right at the property of the Grand Hyatt, so you can either drive and park near there or walk the extra mile from the townhouse. The trail goes eastward from Shipwreck Beach and will eventually take you to Makauwahi Cave Reserve, a tortoise sanctuary and another gorgeous & quiet beach right beside them both (approx. 2 miles). Continue hiking along this beach and further down the amazing rugged coastline and you will eventually get to where they filmed some of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie and to another deserted beach. More stunning rock cuts and breathtaking ocean views! So worth doing the entire trail if you have the time. Spotted some whales along the way as well and one seal resting on Shipwreck Beach. Absolutely loved this townhouse and the location. We felt it was worth much more than a 5 star rating. Will definitely be recommending this rental property to anyone we know who is planning a holiday in Kauai.

Amazing Property, Spectacular Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with Gail and her condo could not have been better. From our first conversation, through the end of our Kauai visit, Gail made our vacation a once in a lifetime experience.

This was a delayed honeymoon because my mom found out she had 3rd stage peritoneal cancer right before my wedding. We wanted to spend the first week of our vacation with my mom, aunt and friend, and so we decided we should look for a condo. I spent hours reviewing hundreds of properties, and this location stood out because of the location and beautiful decor and large amount of space. Plus all of the toys for the beach that were in the unit.

Everything was perfect and Gail could not have been more accommodating. I owned a rental property for ten years and wish that I had been the kind of owner I found in Gail. A+ service, exemplary location - the pictures of the condo didn't do justice to how wonderful it all was.

Great rental with kids

  • 5 of 5

We visited for 9 days with our two young kids (5, 1.5) in August 2015. This was our first time using VRBO and a great experience overall. The owner, Gail, was very helpful and responsive. The condo is clean, spacious, and pleasant, and as of our visit, carpets were new and appliances and so forth up to date. For anyone, but especially for families with young kids, the location is superb. There are wonderful lawns for playing right outside, the pools are great, and the beach is an easy walk (Though really the beach is 12 minutes away, not 3. The pool is what is 3 minutes away.) And Poipu Beach is great for both young kids who can swim in the protected area and adults who can swim and snorkel in the surf. There is one downside, shared by many rentals in the area: no A/C. We were there during an uncharacteristic heatwave, and during 3 of our 9 days, we would have liked the option to turn A/C on. But other than that, we loved staying here.

Owner's Response: Daniel is correct, the pool is 3 minutes away and Poipu Beach Park is 12 minutes ( less without little ones) but there is a great beach just across the street from the pool area -Brenneke's Beach not referenced in Daniel's review. You can google my address and see how close the beaches are - it's a great location!

A warm touch of aloha

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 has stayed at Gail's condo each of the last couple of years now and we absolutely love it here. Perfect south shore location with a beautiful plumeria tree and grass lawn out front and a couple minute walk to the pool and beach. Brenneckes is right down the street as is poipu beach. The condo is well appointed condo with everything you need for a perfect island vacation. Love the beach closet with chairs, snorkel gear & toys. The upstairs kitchen and lanai is perfect for the morning cup of coffee and dinners with the family. And the aloha vibes are prevalent throughout. Really nothing bad to say here other than we are always so bummed when we have to leave! And the owner Gail is very responsive and prompt to respond to questions or issues. When the ceiling fan went out on the day of our arrival, she had a handyman there to fix it within 24 hours - such great service. Highly recommended and looking forward to coming back again next year!!

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

As two couples travelling to Hawaiian islands, we spent a wonderful week in Kauai at this perfect townhouse. The location was amazing: a quick walk to Brennecke Beach for seal sightings, then on to the Poipu Beach for snorkeling, sunbathing, swimming, and walks to the nearby hotels. From this point, we visited all the major attractions: Waimea Canyon, Coconut Coast, North Shore Hanalei, Na Pali coast. All good. The townhouse itself is beautifully decorated (island style) and functional, perfect for two couples. Fantastic views from balcony. Lots of kitchenware and beach stuff: towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, etc. Gail, the owner, was easy to work with and very responsive when questions came up. We particularly appreciated the later checkout time which allowed us to soak up more sun before our late evening flight home. Thanks Gail! We can highly recommend to our friends who wish to stay in sunny Poipu on Kauai.

We'll be back!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time at Manualoha. This is our 3rd time visiting Poipu, and Gail's condo was the best. We have a toddler/almost-2 year old and location was PERFECT for a short walk to Brennecke's/Baby beach (or even closer to the pool which was nice, but we never felt urge to use) and avoiding use of the rental car. Was pleasantly surprised upon entering the condo at how up-to-date and comfortable all the furnitures/fixtures were (picture nice hotel rooms). We like to cook a lot when we travel, and found the kitchen to be well stocked to allow this (as opposed to some places we have stayed in the past with only the obligatory 1-2 pans/1 dull knife, etc.). Another positive on the cooking front was the sparkling clean (literally cleaned every night/morning by the staff) Weber Genesis grill just a few steps away from our patio, which we frequent use of. Grassy area on which the grill stands is also a great place for the kids to play (and basically extends all the way to the coast)

Also lots of beach goodies in the closet to make use of (beach chairs, boogie board, etc..) so no need to spend extra $$'s on those things.

All in all, nothing more to say that hasn't been said in the other positive reviews. Had a great time, and look forward to returning soon.

Thanks Gail!
