"I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time visiting Kauai growing up and have now made it a new tradition, I hope to continue with my husband. We stayed here August 2013 for our honeymoon and now again August 2014. We own several VRBO properties and always use VRBO when traveling. From our extensive experience, I can give the unit 5 stars. Yes, there is no air conditioning, but this is common for Kauai. Open up the windows and enjoy the beautiful and healing Kauai air. Condo is nicely remodeled and still looks great. They have a few chairs, umbrella and some other items that are useful for the beach or a day trip. Kiahuna also provides chairs and towels, free of charge, at the beach hut. We enjoy cooking in the kitchen, on the nearby grill, making smoothies, virgin and non :) for the beach, etc. They have wonderful Hawaiian shampoo, conditioner and soap, so you can leave those items at home. The unit comes with toilet paper, dish washer soap, kleenex, paper towel and several other items not always stocked in a VRBO condo. Can't say anything was missing. Great price and location. Shauna is a pleasure to deal with and quick to respond. She puts forth an effort to make sure you are taken care of. They have recommendation books in the condo, etc. We will be back. Next time with a little one in tow, due in Feb :) Some of our favorite things - get fish food from Nukumoi Surf shop from Brenneckes and watch the fish go crazy. I recommend doing this over by the sand point that sticks out where the Waiohai beach and public Poipu Beach meet. Go to the right of the point and those fish know all about the food ;) Breakfast burritos are great and inexpensive at the little convenience store under Brenneckes. You can find a path with a mixture of path and street walking over to the Hyatt for live music and cocktails at Sunset on the Seaview Terrace. Or just drive. Keoki's is always great, call for live music schedule. I could go on about all the great things within walking distance from this condo, but the best part is to just walk down the grass, onto the beautiful sand and into the ocean. Also lots of running and walking paths around condo. Amazing amounts of fish and sea turtles all around Poipu. My hubby doesn't always like the sand or sun for his irish skin, so relaxing on the huge lawn at Kiahuna, under the many palm trees gives us perfect access and site to the beach as well. We be back to this unit!"
