Poipu Crater condo description

This is an opportunity to enjoy the wonders of Kauai and Poipu Beach and the magic of this unique location for incredible low rates! You can save and still enjoy the polynesian ambiance that surrounds this magical place. We have Eight (8) lovely and very spacious condominium villas to choose from - all privately-owned and meticulously maintained two-level, open and spacious townhouse villas with a polynesian theme in a tropical garden setting.

Each villa has two levels. The upper level has a spacious master bedroom with ensuite. The entry level has a large living room, full-size kitchen, guest bedroom, bath with laundry, dining area and covered lanai off the living and dining rooms via sliding patio doors. These privately-owned villas are furnished with tropical and Polynesian themes and have all you need for a home-away-from-home experience. The kitchens include refrigerator, range, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster or toaster oven and other appliances and amenities, pots/pans, cutlery, flatware, dishes, glasses, linens, etc.

The villas are located in 7 acres of lush and immaculately maintained botanical-type gardens, just a 600 yard stroll away from famous golden sand beaches. Sunny Poipu boasts the best board and body surfing, snorkeling, boogie boarding, and wading beaches that are the envy of Kauai.

We offer all of the comforts to ensure a perfect vacation experience. You can wake up to the sounds of tropical birds then lounge around the large swimming pool, and enjoy a game of tennis or play table tennis in the resort's clubhouse common area. The prevailing trade winds keep the resort comfortable year-round.

With only 30 units in these 7 acres and only two villas per building - you will marvel at the spaciousness and tranquility this resort presents. Even so, these excellently outfitted and totally private villas are located close to award-winning beaches and are easily within strolling distance of several fine hotels, golf courses, and excellent restaurants.

Every sort of water sport can be found in Kauai and equipment for water activities is readily available for rent at Poipu area beaches. It is possible to walk for miles along the coast and beaches, many of which have a rich history with the Polynesian people.

Poipu Crater itself was called Piha ke Kua or “Place full of Gods” which was a sanctuary from nature’s storms and human retribution dating back to the 15th century. The natural volcanic crater is said to have been formed by the foot of the Goddess Pele when she formed the Hawaiian Islands. This sanctuary still exists today as a haven of beauty and tranquility.

If golf is your game this is your destination. Kauai and Poipu have many great golf courses and some are surprisingly affordable (imagine $9 for 9 holes!).

Here you will enjoy spaciousness, privacy and quiet enjoyment of the tropical flowers, trees, palms and resident tropical birds. The buildings are situated to provide privacy and garden views. The spacious covered lanais (12’ by 12’) provided a unique “extra” room to enjoy the botanical landscape. There is a large swimming pool next to the large clubhouse and terrace with communal grills and close to the tennis court.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: We are retired, living on Vancouver Island (Canada)and own this beautiful island home - for over 15 years now. One of the pleasures that we enjoy with our vacation home is updating and maintaining the tropical atmosphere and providing visitors with a delightful holiday destination. We also co-manage rentals for seven other vacation homes for owners in the same complex. These are all individually owned condos each with their own unique style.

                      Why the Owner Chose Poipu Crater:
                      We have been visiting Kauai since the late 70's and found ourselves especially attracted to the Poipu Beach area. Always sunny and never crowded. When we decided to purchase our own property we asked people living in the area for the best location and we were told about this very special, private and lush tropical setting in the heart of Poipu. As soon as we entered the grounds we discovered a different and magical world with unique architecture in a quiet and spacious garden locale.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Fully equipped, meticulously maintained, two bedroom and two bathroom villas in a very private setting. Guests repeatedly tell us that one of the most treasured features of these villas is the large, private, covered lanais overlooking the gardens. This is the perfect setting for reading, bird watching, and dining al fresco. But the fun doesn't end on the lanai, there is the large swimming pool with ample deck chairs and tables for just 'hanging out' at the pool (with only 30 units, you might very well find you have the pool to yourself). Next to the pool is the patio area with tables for dining/relaxing/accessing your computer/etc. and next to that are two communal bbq grills. The clubhouse itself has tables, chairs, sofas and a great variety of books for your enjoyment. There are mens' and ladies' bathrooms/changing rooms by the pool each with a sauna. And the tennis court is a few steps away. What could be better?
