Overview

About the property

1 BR/1.5 Bath - Sleeps 2

We purchased this lovely ground floor garden view condo in April, 2013. We installed tile flooring throughout the unit including the lanai. We updated the kitchen, master bathroom and half bath with new cabinets and granite counter tops. This condominium has a large master bedroom with an en-suite master bath. Also has a half bath for convenience if you have extra guests. Plenty of closet space for you to unpack and feel at home. Our spacious lanai is an excellent place to kick back and enjoy your morning coffee or romantic dinner. Poipu Sands is located directly next to the ocean near famous Shipwrecks Beach and adjacent to the Kauai Grand Hyatt Resort and Spa. The Grand Hyatt resort offers lush tropical grounds, casual and fine dining as well as shops and entertainment. Shipwreck Beach, located in front of the Hyatt is usually sunny and less crowded than other Poipu Beaches. This is a beautiful beach to take a romantic evening stroll and is often used as the backdrop for wedding photos. Poipu Sands is located within the upscale Poipu Kai resort. The Poipu Kai development is located on 70 acres and extends from Poipu Beach to Shipwreck Beach. The resort is connected by a green belt that has beautiful garden paths winding through it. The Kiahuna Golf Course and the Poipu Bay Golf Course are both in very near proximity. The nearby tennis club offers both hard and soft surface courts. You may also enjoy a game of tennis on Poipu Sands private tennis court. Poipu Sands is the only complex within Poipu Kai that offers a private tennis court. Poipu Sands also offers a large seasonally heated private swimming pool. You also have access to an additional pool and hot tub just a short walk down the green belt path. Poipu Beach which has been ranked as one of the top beaches in the United States is just a short 10 minute walk from our unit along the pleasant Poipu Kai green belt. This beach has both a shallow area which is excellent for swimming with small children and a great snorkeling area as well. This is a favorite spot to see napping endangered monk seals and Hawaiian sea turtles. Nearby Brenneke's Beach is considered by many to be the best boogie-boarding and body surfing beach on Kauai. Old Koloa Town located less than five miles away is the site of the island's first sugar mill. Historic Old Koloa Town is a hub of picturesque shops, eateries, gift and souvenir emporiums. There are a variety of Luaus throughout Kauai including one at the Grand Hyatt Resort right next door. You may also enjoy a horse back ride along the Mahaulepu Coast line, renting a stand up paddle board to enjoy the ocean surf or dining at the large variety of nearby restaurants ranging from family fare to upscale and romantic. Take a lovely evening stroll along the green belt to Poipu Beach to enjoy the sunset then come home to enjoy dinner on your very own quiet and comfortable lanai.

About Kathy Cannone

We have lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for 36years and have been coming to Hawaii since 1982 to escape our cold, dark winters. We spent several years researching where we wanted our winter getaway to be located. After visiting several places, we choose Poipu, Hawaii because of the consistent weather conditions, the outdoor activities and the friendly people. We absolutely love our home in Kauai and we are excited to share it with you.

Kathy Cannone purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kathy Cannone chose Kauai

We loved Poipu Sands because of all the beautiful green space that surrounds the complex. The feeling that you get at the Sands is one of openness. Poipu Sands sits directly near the beachfront. There is no road between the condos and the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us. We had a fantastic time, it was a wonderful honeymoon. We had so much fun on the beaches and I am happy to say now that we are tanned we are less likely to blind anyone on our way to the airport.

You have a beautiful place here. Everything was perfect.



Thank you! Gracias! Bedankt! Mahalo!

Clean, comfortable property in an outstanding location.

  • 5 of 5

Kathy was very easy to communicate with and her beautiful condo was fully equipped with everything we needed for our vacation. The condo is located steps from the beach with amazing coastal views. We were thrilled to have a clean and comfortable place to come back to after exploring the island each day. Thank you Kathy!

Fantastic Poipu Gem

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Kathy and Bob's condo. The location couldn't be nicer as you are minutes away from Shipwrecks beach and a short 15 min walk to Poipu Beach Park. You are minutes away from Koloa town as well and the best Poke on this part of the island at Koloa Fish Market. We stayed 10 days to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. When we arrived, Kathy had a bottle of Perseco waiting in the fridge to help us celebrate. That was so thoughtful. The condo is clean, with high ceilings and faces a row of palm trees on the property. A well equiped kitchen complete with a pineapple corer (use it!) and everything you need for the beach is included. They also have a very current collection of books highlighting must sees on the island.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

Kathy and Bob, Your place is exactly as described, but more beautiful. We had such an amazing time in Kauai. Part of our stay was at the Grand Hyatt which was unbelievable. However, the days we had in your place were so much more like a "home" that happened to be in "Paradise"! My husband and I loved the fact we could walk right out the lanai doors and look at Shipwreck Beach. A view that was burned into my memory 30 years ago on our honeymoon.

Also, the way you have supplied your unit with everything someone would need in a condo rental is mindblowing! What a happy surprise that there are 2 seperate bathrooms. I loved all that counterspace! The only thing I can think of that wasn't absolutely perfect was the mattress comfort, but that is just a personal preference thing.

We definitely want to come back again!

My hope is that we can get some of our grown children to join us!

Thank you again for the use of your wonderful home away from home!

Wonderful location and spotless

  • 4 of 5

Your photos accurately portray the lovely interior of your vacation home. It's tastefully decorated and the kitchen is very well stocked. It was spotless. We appreciated being able to use beach chairs and coolers. Bed is comfortable, and towels and linens very nice. Appreciated the details the you put into making guests feel comfortable and welcome. The location is fantastic, and the hike along those cliffs in the distance was wonderful. The grounds and buildings of Poipu Sands seem to be very well maintained. The only disappointment for us was not being able to see the more of the ocean from the lanai but that was minor.

poipu sands 416

  • 5 of 5

very well equipped and comfortable. couldn't have added anything more. we love Kauai and this was our first time in Poipu Sands. Used to body surf at Brenneke's in the 60's and so much has changed but the charm is in the old town of Koloa as we remembered.

We had a wonderful stay at 416, thank you.
