Property description

Our 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom condo, recently remodeled throughout, offers gorgeous white water ocean and mountain views from the kitchen, family room and master bedroom. Our beautifully furnished and decorated unit comes equipped with a high chair, portable crib, stair safety gate, cooler, beach chairs as well as a variety of outdoor toys. Building 3 is less than a 1 minute walk to the scenic and relaxing Manualoha pool as well as the Poipu Kai tennis center. Walk less than 3 minutes to one of Kauai's best body surfing and boogie boarding beaches, Brennecke's Beach, as well as Poipu Park, the gateway to beautiful Poipu Beach. Sea turtles, monk seals and spinner dolphins share this paradise. During one visit, we could even see whales spouting offshore from Brennecke's! We are within a 5 minutes' walk to several family-friendly restaurants, as well as higher-end, romantic choices at the Hyatt. If you'd rather not cook in the gourmet kitchen or grill on the outdoor barbecues available to you, a 3 minute drive (or a 20-25 minute walk) gets you to several food options (Roy's, Keoki's Paradise, Puka Dog, Tropical Burger, Starbucks) in Poipu Shopping Village or a 6-7 minute drive gets you to the new The Shops at Kukui`ula (Tortilla Republic, Bubba name a few). Kalapaki Joe's, a sports bar that has great happy hour specials and is very family-friendly as well, is on property, and will be re-opening after renovation very soon, slated for some time in mid-July. Our favorite restaurants are down the Kaumualii Highway, in Kalaheo--a 15 minute drive to the north (love Brick Oven Pizza and more upscale, the Kalaheo Cafe & Coffee Company).
We have also upgraded the standard cable package to include the Sports Pass and our phones are now VoIP, which is Voice over Internet Protocol, which gives you free calls to Canada and within the US!
Kauai is just paradise--and Poipu is known as the sunny side of the island. Personally, we like to hike, take advantage of the beautiful running paths, swim in the warm Pacific Ocean and play tennis at the under-utilized, but well-kept tennis courts. Come see why we love Manualoha 306 and its location in Kauai!

Rental Agreement


Please Read The Following Thoroughly And Let Us Know If You Have Any Questions.

OUTCLEANING CHARGES: As you will note below, out clean charges vary with the size of the unit. When you depart, a professional cleaning service comes to wash the balance of linens and towels and prepare for the next visitors. We expect the rental unit to be left in a “neat” condition. These charges are subject to change because of incremental price increases of the cleaning staff.

DEPOSITS: A security/damage deposit is required at time of your reservation. If deposit is not received within 3 days, your reservation will automatically cancel. Refunds are after departure in most instances (there are some properties where we must wait up to 45 days for the phone bills to be verified) less extraordinary cleaning, missing items, long distance charges or any damages that exceed normal wear and tear.

CANCELLATIONS: Notification of cancellation must be received at least 60 days prior to your planned arrival. (120 days notification from December 15 through January 15). All cancellations are subject to a $50 cancellation fee. A cancellation notification of less than 60 days (120 day holiday season) results in forfeiture of full rent. Guests are responsible for the entire time booked. No rentals refunds are given for early departure or late cancellation.

OCCUPANCY: Occupancy is limited to number of confirmed guests. Receptions, luaus, and parties of any kind are strictly prohibited.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We're Kevin & Sandy from the S.F. Bay Area. We have two 'kids', now both happily married and having families of their own. I, Kevin, fell in love with the islands in 1980 while studying at the UH Manoa campus in Honolulu. Over the years we made several trips to the Islands, getting to know the unique differences between each island. Eventually we settled on Kauai as our favorite. Although still employed in the foreseeable future, we look forward to when we can spend longer blocks of time at our island home...together, with friends & family, and we especially see Manualoha 306 as a great place for our (soon-to-be-born) and future grandchildren.

Why Manualoha:
We first vacationed in Poipu (Manualoha Bldg #4) in 2000. We appreciated the great pool, with beautiful views, the fun of boogie-boarding Brennecke's Beach, the gentleness of the lagoon at the end of Poipu Beach Park leading up to Poipu Beach, the relaxed low rise development (3 stories max.) which offered uncluttered,expansive greens where our kids could play. It was during that visit we decided if we were going to buy on the Islands, it would be here in Kauai at Poipu Kai-Manualoha. Four years later we decided to make the purchase. If you are looking to house more family and friends than MN306 can offer we also have available the unit directly below (mn303) that could sleep and additional 4 guest. The link to this unit as well as the larger MN701 (sleeps 8) can be found on the links & video page.
