"My husband and I, along with my brother and his wife, were lucky enough to book and stay in this gorgeous condo on Kauai. The condo had comfortable furniture, great and comfy beds, flat screen t.v.'s, and one of the greatest lanais anywhere. The lanai overlooks the ocean, about 1/2 block away. It's the spot we kept returning to day after day. We would have our morning coffee, then later, cool drinks while we watched the ever changing ocean. We saw sea turtles poke their heads out of the water, spinning porpoises, jumping fish and dolphins. The view is simply mesmerizing. The condo grounds are also beautiful with tropical flowers, palm and other tropical trees. And the pool was fantastic with a nine foot deep end! We often would swim in the ocean in the morning, then jump into the pool in the afternoon. What a luxury! The condo also had a great supply of Beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, masks, snorkles, and fins, as well as coolers and golf clubs.
The condo is close to beaches (Poipu Beach which is a county park) and Shipwreck (no swimming here but it is a nice beach for sunning), shopping (Poipu Village, Koloa not too far away), and restaurants. One of our favorite restaurants was Brenneke's, across from Poipu Beach. The restaurant serves a variety of fish dishes and is open air. (We found it best to make reservations at almost all of the restaurants we sampled). We enjoyed all of the restaurants we tried and loved the Beach House as well as Tortilla Republic. The fresh fish is fantastic, no matter which preparation you choose. There is a wonderful fresh fruit and vegetable stand off of Poipu Rd and Pe'e Rd with all kinds of tropical fruits to sample and purchase.
My husband and brother were really impressed with the koa wood lighted stairway in the condo. (The bedrooms are downstairs, the living area upstairs)
This rare wood makes for an impressive stairway. The granite counter tops in the kitchen are a work of art. The new washer and dryer were greatly appreciated.
If there is any negative regarding our stay it is that we had no wifi. We attempted at different times, day and night, without success. But this negative was such a minor thing that we weren't certain we should even mention it. After all, we were on a vacation! If we really had a burning need to be connected, we went over to the Hyatt where we had no difficulty.
All things considered, we would readily book this property again.
Thank you, Butch and Mary Ann!"
