Down in the Crater
You'll truly enjoy this property. It feels so lush as you drive down into the crater to find your temporary home. Lots of flowering trees and birds. The unit itself was really nice, although lacking in any kitchen accoutrements except salt and pepper. Oh, and get your coffee already ground at the market since there's not a grinder in the kitchen. We used the Cusinart chopper, but it's not really the proper tool. The master bedroom is upstairs and it's really pretty, looking out over the flowers in the treetops. It rained massively while we were there, so we were constantly wet and sticky after being out, and having a dryer in the bottom bathroom was a godsend. The have a closet full of beach toys, chairs, and a small cooler. The lanai is simply lovely. Sitting out there with morning coffee was so nice. We truly enjoyed our stay!
Pictures can be deceiving
The pics of this place are amazing, but unfortunately it is need of total redo. It is a very old property, but the price is fair for a comfortable place to stay. We enjoyed the quiet mornings on the porch with the only sound of a variety of birds singing.
Be prepared, it does not have ac.
We left a msg with the 800 number and never rec'd a call back.
LOTS of space!
Great price for how much space you get! It would be perfect for a family of 4. I stayed here with my husband so it was definitely more space than we needed. Two full bedrooms and two bathrooms. The patio looks out to beautiful and lush greenery. I also loved the open-air ceiling from the living room to the upstairs. It makes it hard to tell where noise is coming from though because it just echos through the entire house.
It came with a fully stocked kitchen and a closet full of beach equipment (2 boogie boards, fins, parasols, snorkels, beach mats, etc.). One request would be life jackets! The waves in Kaua'i are no joke. The currents are super strong and the waves crash really hard plus the beaches are full of corals and big rocks. Put that together and it's like playing Russian Roulette on when you're going to get smacked into something hard and injure yourself if you're not a good swimmer.
We went in mid-May and it was a little hot and humid. One night was particularly too hot to sleep and I needed to sleep with an ice pack because the fans were just not doing the trick. Giving this place a 4 out of 5 stars because I felt like A/C was quite necessary to feel comfortable and we didn't have that. Other than that, we had a wonderful stay here!
Poipu crater stay
What a lovely place! Staying in this small cluster of condos that are hidden behind banana and tulip trees was so lovely! The house was clean and had a complete kitchen so we could eat in as much as we wanted. Pool area was quiet and peaceful. Loved our time here.
At Home in Poipu
Oh yes, we really enjoyed this unit. Nice and roomy with the tropical home feel. It was thoughtfully decorated and furnished. Nice and clean with great towel supply. Good linens. It was great to have a washer & dryer. Also there were beach chairs, towels and snorkeling equipment available. Nice. The property was really gorgeous. We had the tennis court to ourselves and the pool and common area were not busy. Good parking and you could walk to Poipu Beach if you weren't carrying anything much. We would vacation here again.
