Koloa condo description
This beautiful, Non-Smoking condo has stunning, unobstructed views of the blue Pacific Ocean. You will hear the waves crash against the rocks below in a relaxing, tranquil environment. Poipu Beach on the South Shore of Kauai, is only half mile from our condo, and has recently been voted the #1 beach in the U.S.
This 12 unit condominium complex has its own private swimming pool for your enjoyment. As you relax in the pool area or large deck adjacent to the pool, you will be overlooking the gorgeous blue Pacific Ocean. Approximately 50' below you can watch the waves caress the lava shore line and you can look at the shoreline in both directions with 180 degree views. We want to make your vacation one you'll never forget. We anticipate you'll come back again and again, as you will fall in love with the Garden Island of Kauai.
From our private lanai you will be able to see dolphins, whales, and sea turtles. You will enjoy total relaxation as you overlook the private pool onto the many shades of blue of the Pacific Ocean.
The condo has every convenience imaginable. We will provide you with everything you will need to enjoy your stay with us. For your convenience and enjoyment we provide the following in the condo: Snorkels and fins, beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler, binoculars and wireless DSL high speed internet if you want to bring your laptop. Just bring your swimming suits, and leave the rest to us. I must warn you, however, that once you get here you won't want to go home!
Aloha and mahalo for considering our vacation home in paradise.

How often can you watch a superpod of dolphin playfully jump and arc through the ocean just offshore, as you eat breakfast on your lanai? Apparently everyday, when you stay at Kevin's wonderful Unit 103 at the Poipu Palms. And if that isn't enough, his unit sits forward of the other groundfloor units, allowing a virtually unobstructed view of the amazing Kauai sunsets. As former owners of a home on the North Shore of Kauai, we love to visit and explore the entire island, but still we found it hard to leave our perch in Poipu each day, as it offered tropical perfection and ultimate comfort. A short walk to the south offered all the amenities of the (former) Embassy Suites and Grand Hyatt hotels (be sure to check out the Hyatt's beautiful and classy Stevenson's Library, which includes an amazing Koa wood bar and a couple of pool tables), while a stroll to the north presented Brenneke's Beach Broiler restaurant and the beautiful Waiohai hotel. All these locations are close by when you want them, but far enough away to allow you to feel like you are on a deserted tropical isle as you lay poolside at the PP, with nothing but the swaying green palms, fluffy white clouds and glistening blue ocean surrounding you. Kevin has appointed Unit 103 with everything you might need and more, with an amazingly well-stocked closet, full of cleaning and paper products, snorkel gear, etc. We even found a bottle of "Goo Gone" we used to remove a wad of gum that got stuck to our wallet in the airport x-ray machine! Plus, the washer and dryer allowed us to pack light, so we had plenty of room to bring home the island wear we always end up buying. There was nothing we needed that Kevin did not provide (except, of course, a way to stop the passage of time). (One passing note: a renter from another unit told us the pool might be closed for a few days in the near future to allow the deck area to be painted. This work could already be done, but as a precaution, you might want to check with Kevin if any rehab is scheduled at the PP during your vacation dates.) Now that our time in paradise is behind us, we are suffering from serious withdrawals, even here in sunny So. Cal., which just proves there is no place like Kauai and the Poipu Palms. Thanks for your hospitality, Kevin. We look forward to returning soon. Steve & Bonnie Brennan Jim & Judy O'Brien

Short Story: We couldn't be more happy about our time in Kauai and we hope that next time we come, that apt is available. I recommend this place to anyone. Both the listing and the pictures are accurate. I couldn't see staying here without a car. My partner and I, my little brother and his girl came to Kauai to get a little RnR. Staying there was super convenient. I know that most of the folks on VRBO are older than we are (we range from mid 20's to mid 30's), but it was perfect for us since we wanted to just chill/relax/rest/sleep, eat good food, and be in the water. The apartment was clean and welcoming. Both rooms were perfect. Some might find the guest room is a bit tight - but it's not like you're spending so much time in the room when the waves and view are beckoning you from the balcony. Speaking of the balcony, we had superb home-cooked breakfasts on the balcony everyday we were there. We didn't see dolphins, but we saw turtles in the water. The place is super clean and since we were raised right, we left it even cleaner. So you, too, should keep it clean. Shoes off and don't bring sand in (hose off at the shower near the pool and there is also a foot faucet before you enter the place). The owners were super helpful throughout the process re: questions and concerns. In fact Kevin was there the day we arrived and shared generously with us places to go for groceries, eats and other things. Amenities - Full kitchen and utensils. There is a Big Save grocery store not too far- 7 minute drive. They have a cd player boombox, so bring your tunes (I forget if they have an ipod extension). They have a tv, but we never watched any. I think they had cards and board games, but we brought our dominoes just in case. Within a short distance: The walk to Poipu Beach is wonderful and short. Kalapaki Joe's is better than Brennecke's (just so you know). The coastal hike from the Hyatt is AMAZING. Da Crack is a local burrito/taco shop that is very tasty. Right next to it is another grocery store where there is a larger selection of beer/wine and liquor. If you stay here, you can still get that "touristy" feel by going to the mall (again, down the road). Further out and even more amazing: We drove an hour to the north side of the island and visited the Steelgrass Chocolate Farm, we went to farmer's markets and we got to other beaches in a half hour. Don't worry about driving, because driving in Kauai is not like driving in any other city. Mahalo!

Amazing location to see sunsets, sunrises, moon rising and setting, rainbows if lucky, spinner dolphins, turtles, all from the Lania! Don't miss the sunrise over the ocean (we missed 3 sunrises until I walked out to the car early one morning and saw it was right there!) - walk out front, 2nd condo to the right (east), walk down the parking lot on the left to a pathway to the cliff and to the Hyatt, and watch the sunrise! Always sunny in Poipu and a wonderful location and condo to come home to after a day of hiking, snorkling, surfing, sailing, etc. We could not wait to get back in time to grill fish and sit on the lanai with our drinks and watch the sunset. Then we would take a dip in the pool at 8:00 PM and look at the full moon and listen to the ocean feet away. The only noise was the sound of the waves crashing! Even after nine days, my husband and I were speechless and high fiving each other! We could not believe the beauty of this perfect location. Mahalo a nui to Nicole and Kevin, who thought of everything to make their guests comfortable!

Great visit to Kauai
Great visit to Kauai
The owner & his daughter did a great job of answering condo questions and explaining final arrangements. We ate most meals on the lanai and the view was incredible--unobstructed ocean view, complete with a few sea turtles and dolphins! I would not describe the condo as "luxurious", but we found it very confortable. Appreciated the access to wireless internet & also the outdoor charcoal grill. I'd stay there again! Would highly recommend the hula demonstration at the Hyatt. (It's during their happy hour a couple of times a week and is free) Also, the "heritage hike" which starts at the Hyatt and runs for quite a ways along the golf course is a beautiful and a relatively easy hike.

We spent 4 nights at Poipu Palms #103 in May 2010 after spending a week at the Mariott in Ohau. We wish it were the other way around!! Kauai was much more enjoyable than Ohau and Poipu Palms was perfect. It's clean, comfortable and perfectly equipped for a great stay. We looked forward to drinks each day on the Lanai after a busy day of tourist activities. The view is spectacular and we were even treated to some late season whale watching. Highly recommend and hope to return someday.

Kevin & Nicole -Aloha, Mahalo & Wow! We stayed at the beautiful Poipu Palms # 103 May 25-June 1. We had been in Honolulu the week before and purposely wanted to stay in a relaxed atmosphere our 2nd week in Hawaii. This was the perfect place to do that. I'll be repeating what others have said, but it's true. You have everything you need--everything. There are enough backup supplies to take care of all of Poipu Palms. Loved the washer/dryer and dish washer! Each bedroom had its own bathroom and all the island decor was tasteful and lovely. The kitchen granite counter tops were gorgeous and the floors through out the condo are very beautiful. The lanai was a favorite place to relax and watch activity on the ocean front--be it dolphins, sea turtles or sail boats. I have to say the sound of the waves was so special--you'll miss it after you leave. Poipu Beach park is a very short drive away and we happened to see a napping monk seal on the beach--very special. Another highlight for us was a helicopter tour over Kaui. It was breath taking. We flew with Sunshine Helicopters--very good folks. We had some great meals and adventures in Kauai for sure--and it was always wonderful to come home to our condo. This condo has the absolute best location of any on the property. It sits forward of the rest and has no one to the immediate right or left. The view is wonderful! The grounds and pool are very clean and well maintained. Finally, I have to say that all our communications with Kevin & Nicole have been a real pleasure. You will definitely enjoy your stay at Poipu Palms #103!!

The other comments pretty much say it all. We loved our stay. The place was actually better than expected, which is quite a lot. The view from the living room and lanai is spectacular. We watched whales and turtles from close up. The pool is a little small, but well tended and a good place for a bit of exercise or to cool off. Perfect for two couples. Would love to stay there again.

We stayed in Kevin's condo for two weeks in Feb. 2009. Our comments would echo many of those already expressed. Although we have made many trips to Hawaii, this was a first to Kauai for most of our group of four. We have never stayed in a property on any of the islands where we would see turtles, whales, and dolphins all from our lanai on a daily basis and amazingly close to shore. What a treat!!!! Our only complaint....not having been to Kauai before we had a terrible time finding the place after dark. We couldn't get our GPS system to work (probably my fault), and the directions were inadequate and confusing. We felt lucky to finally find Pe'pe road and Poipu Palms. We enjoyed our daily walks along the cliff side to the Hyatt for a morning paper and coffee. You can't go wrong on this. The Brennemans from Oregon

Mahalo to Kevin and Nicole-we could not have asked for a better place to spend the 2008 holdiays than this condo! Not only is it beautiful and well stocked (no need to bring shampoo, soap, towles, etc) the condo is very well maintained and clean! This condo is in an ideal location-it was very quiet and relaxing! We have stayed at other properties on Kauai and there is just no comparison. The best part of our stay was the daily whale activity-every morning, as we sat on the lanai, we were treated to whales, just off shore-what a treat! Kauai is a special place for us and we are looking forward to our next visit to and our next stay at the Poipu Palms #103!

We stayed here a week in September. Best place to stay for the money! We had two couples and one baby. Location is everything. We enjoyed the view and that it was close enough to walk to Poipu Beach. It is great to check yourself in at your own convienence. We recomend snorkel bob's for good equiptment and poipu beach was a great place to snorkel. I saw lot's of fish and three different sea turtles. We will stay here again.
