Poipu Sands condo description

The Poipu Kai Resort on Kauai's southshore has five condominium complexes and many private homes. Poipu Sands is one of the Resort's condominums, and is situated on 7.5 acres of exceptionally well-maintained tropically-planted property. Poipu Sands is the ONLY Poipu Kai Resort condominium that has direct beach access without crossing active roads. Also, Poipu Sands has the only private tennis court, the largest swimming pool, and the only heated swimming pool in the Resort. Visitors proclaim Poipu Sands 'No Ka Oi' ... that is, the #1 condominum in Poipu Kai Resort.
If you decide to stay at the Poipu Sands, why not select a first-floor unit with an awesome view of the ocean at Shipwreck Beach, and of Makawehi Point (just think .. no stairs to haul luggage and groceries up and down, and you don't have to go around to the front door when going back and forth to the pool). And you will want a unit that has maximum cooling from the tradewinds (which limits you to buildings 1 or 5), and one that is reasonably priced (which limits you to building 1). These criteria limits you to six units in Poipu Sands bulding 1 ... and the unit with the best view, best lanai, and just-like-home features is Sands Unit 116 ... which is the one offered in this listing.

Poipu Sands 116 has been completely remodeled in a quality but useable manner, and can be rented as a one-bedroom, two-bath unit ... or as a two-bedroom, two-bath unit.

                      Car: Recommended

                      Several well built and maintained ziplining layouts are located on Kauai ... one at Kipu near our condominium where much of the movie 'Descendents' was filmed.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: We met in high school, married after college, moved to Seattle where we lived for 44 years prior to leaving in 2007 bound for a new home south of San Francisco. We love Kauai, enjoy traveling, and have established 'roots' on Kauai's south shore. Fran in particular ... she was enrolled in a hula school where she learned Hawaiian hula, legends, and language; she has been presented with the Hawaiian name 'Mahealani' (which means bright spiritual light) by her Kumu Hula identifying her to all Hawaiians as accomplished in hula. Vince was involved with Poipu Sands and Poipu Kai Resort management for years ... Poipu Sands Board for ten years (six as President), and Poipu Kai Board for five years (one as President). Vince is back on the Poipu Kai Resort Board as of April 2012! If you have questions about the south shore, we will have the answers!

                      Why the Owner Chose Poipu Sands:
                      We vacationed every summer, from 1978 through the 80's, with our boys at our Maui timeshare. We grew to love Hawaii and decided we wanted to spend much of our retirement time in Hawaii. To make sure we could, we purchased our Poipu Sands unit in 1989 so we could have it paid for by the time we retired. Since 2000 we have spent an average of 4-5 months each year 'at home' in our unit enjoying retirement on Kauai. Because we live in our unit so much of each year, our unit is equipped and furnished much more completely than most vacation rental properties. We guarantee you will agree you have arrived 'home' when you enter our unit for the first time!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      What does Poipu Sands have that other south shore condominums don't have? How about the largest swimming pool -- and the only heated condominium pool! -- as well as a private tennis court recently refenced and resurfaced using US Open colors. And talk about a perfect location! Poipu Sands is located in the Poipu Kai Resort within blocks of two major golf courses (Poipu Bay and Kiahuna), a 5-minute walk down the Poipu Sands property to the Grand Hyatt Hotel and Shipwreck Beach, a 15-minute walk through the Poipu Kai Resort to Brennecke's Beach, Poipu State Park, and Poipu Beach, a 3-minute drive to the Poipu Shopping Center (Roy's Restaurant, Keoki's Restaurant, Starbucks!, and lots more), and a 6-minute drive from Old Koloa Town with its shops, bank, post office, grocery store, and Lappert's Ice Cream!
