Hello , my name is Iwona Szajer and live on Kauai. I am originally from Poland and my husband is from Germany. We call ourselves 'gypsies' as we live in many beautiful places , and yet Kauai is always home. I arrived on Kauai in 1991 and I have made it a home for the girls. They have gone to schools here and they consider this Kauai home.Tatjana , the eldest, lives on Oahu but ultimately wants to be back on Kauai. Ariella in still in school at John Hoppkins and is hoping to one day do good for humankind :-) Daniel , our son has just entered Kindergarten here on the island. We love what Kauai has given us...someone said to us once that moving here has given them an extra 10 years of life...we don't know about that , but what this place has given 'us' is many wonderful memories...we love the life style here...we hope to share some of it with you.
Iwona purchased this townhome in 2012
We have lived and owned the adjacent unit since 1994. It was always our wish to buy this adjacent unit as it would be perfect for a 'bigger' family. It is perfect for a small family but also if more family comes we can still be together but separate
When I moved for good to Kauai in 1994 I searched for a place that would have a 'blend' of many things. I wanted a great location, a safe place for the girls to be outside, a place where I could enjoy running and hiking. A place that was private and yet where I could meet people. After many visits I found Poipu Crater and it was PERFECT! I truly felt ( and still do ) that this is Poipu's little secret . My friends and neighbors use to say that all the time. So many people in Poipu don't even know that this place exist. Before I bought this cottage, I have lived in few other units and ultimately made the decision to buy the one that I currently own. I made that decision because of the location. My unit is truly in the BEST location. I have the morning sun - I can have my breakfast on the lanai ( it's still not too hot ) and in the afternoon am able to enjoy the outside as well . My unit is perched on top of the Crater and because of its unique location it is comfortable all year round. The morning sun warms it up in the morning , the prevailing trade winds keep it cool all day and I have no or very little mosquito's! It's these small things that one can only find out after truly 'living' in the place and because I had the chance to 'try' other cottages and was lucky to be there at the time when I had choices. I chose this particular one because it is the BEST! I have LIVED there and raised my girls there for 8 years. My husband and I always envisioned ourselves retiring here...but as our family grew we had to find a bigger place. We still have a long ways to retirement , especially now with our 5 year old, but at least we have the knowledge that one day if not us, the girls will be back in 'their' home.
Enjoyed the BBQ area and eating on our lanai. Lush surroundings , lizards on the pathway and tropical birds singing made it a place to remember.
From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at home. The property is beautiful, clean and filled with everything to make our stay comfortable, everything was exactly as it appeared in the add, and honestly a little better. Beautiful beaches and shops near by, easy to walk to or a short drive to anything you need to get you through your stay.Communication with the owners was easy, convenient, and made the entire process better than I could have hoped for. The sleepy town of Koloa is friendly, easy going and charming. We loved every minute of our vacation and that is directly related to our stay here in the Crater. We can't wait to come back and can only hope this property is available.
The cottage at Poipu Crater was perfect for our stay in Kauai. It was an easy walk to restaurants, beaches, and ocean. Its central location allowed exploring. The property also allowed a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the island. An added plus was sitting on the lanai and watching the full moon rise. We would absolutely stay at this property again.
It was a great Condo, but they need more dishes. We had only 2 Breakfast bowls, not much plates either. We need to run the dishwasher every Day for 3 people.
We was siting outside all time played games and enjoyed conversation but neighbors not happy if you sit too long.
The outdoor furniture seat cushions needs more firm, they worn out.
Otherwise nice and clean, worked for us.
The unit was great overall. There was beautiful art and the beds were very comfortable. The only thing we wished it had was better ore substantial glassware. It only had plastic drinking glasses and tiny wine glasses and mugs. We had to go out and buy some.
The master bedroom fan also made too much noise to use but luckily they had portable fans in the bedrooms.
The pool was freezing and too cold to do laps in.
Good proximity to amenities.
We had a wonderful stay at Poipu Crater. The pictures did not lie - the cottage is tastefully decorated, clean and well equipped with the essentials for a weeklong beach getaway. It's tucked away from the resort crowd, and Poipu beach and restaurants are just a short drive away! We had an amazing time at Kauai and can't wait to return. Definitely would recommend this to others.
Wonderful property in a great Poipu location. The condo was clean and comfy with so many amenities. The beds we so comfy and the outdoor patio was our favorite place to relax in the mornings and evenings - great sunrise and sunsets! The only downfall is there is no air conditioning and we happened to arrive when all the hurricanes had finished passing through and the trade winds weren't flowing---it got hot and very humid in the condo. As the week went on, the weather cooled down and that helped a lot. Overall such an amazing experience!
We look forward to coming back again soon! Thank you so much! Mahalo!
Close to the ocean and a 8 minute stroll to the BEST beaches on the south side of Kauai. Hawaiian cottage is located in the heart of Poipu - walking distance to not only beaches , but also shopping , dinning and spa. Great place to stay if you enjoy hiking , whale watching and running as there beautiful paths from the cottage which go along for miles.
