About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This condo #116 is located in sunny Poipu, the dryer side of paradise. Poipu is located on the south shore of Kauai and with an annual rainfall of 30 inches it is quite a bit dryer than the north shore where the annual rainfall is 100 inches.

From your own private lanai you have a gorgeous view of the sunset and every morning and evening you can watch the turtles play in a small cove 30 feet from the lanai. The building is located next to a sandy beach with some of the best snorkeling on Kauai.

The condo has one bedroom and one bath, a living room, dining room and a complete kitchen. The living room and dining room has floor to ceiling windows with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The dining room has a glass table with rattan chairs and overhead ceiling fan. The living room has a very tropical feel to it with bamboo furniture, berber carpet and a beautiful view of the ocean.

The kitchen has tile floor and raised panel oak cabinets. It is fully equipped with microwave oven, self cleaning stove, blender, toaster, coffee maker; everything you'll need for making your own meals. The bathroom has tile on the floor and also around the bathtub. The bedroom also have bamboo furniture, a california king sized bed, and a ceiling fan to keep you cool at night.

This is the best value for your money if you like to stay on the south shore. It has just about everything that you might want at an affordable price!

Some of our guests comments:

Joe and I had a magical week at your condo. Thank you for all your correspondance and suggestions on how to enjoy the south of Kauai.

I'm already trying to 'withdraw' from the sunsets and many meals right from your patio! The snorkeling was unbelievable too!

We enjoyed our stay in your wonderful condononce again! Too short as always. We hope to return again.

Thanks for letting us rent your condo in Kauai. We loved it! We had a wonderful honeymoon in Hawaii and the sunsets and turtles just off the lanai were a huge part of that.

We had a great time on Kauai! The location of your condo is perfect.

Thanks for letting us use your condo. Just as we enjoyed our last stay in your condo we had a fab. time this year. Aling with the surfers & sea turtles, we saw spinner dolphins this time around. Can't wait for our next trip.

I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay @ your condo in Kauai. What a view to wake up to every day! Thanks again!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 3rd trip to Kauai, we can't seem to get enough. We spent so much time on the lanai watching sea turtles and whales. Most nights we slep on the pull out so we could listen to crashing waves all night. Thank you for letting us use your perfect condo. We will be back!

Best location on the beach on the south side of the island

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be on the water and about 10 giant steps from the edge of the beach this is the place for you. The best view and location you can have on the south side of the island. The condo itself is dated and needs to be updated with new furniture, flooring and the bathroom but once that happens I'm sure the price will go up. The condo is functional and worked for us. We slept in the living room to take advantage of the ocean view and sound. My few suggestions would be a few more bath towels so you don't have to wash any during the week. We had 4 towels for 2 people for a week. Also, 1 roll of paper towels supplied for the week would be appreciated. The cooler and beach chairs were nice to have. I would suggest replacing the beach chairs with Tommy Bahama chairs at Costco for $30 when the time comes :-). But overall i would recommend this condo highly if being on the water is important to you. I don't think you will find a condo that is closer to the water with this view of the sunset. In fact the restaurant that is rated the best place to have a sunset dinner is about 40 yards to the west of this condo. Buy some steaks at Costco and bbq them yourself on one of the 2 gas grills provided in the common area and save tons of money with the same great view!

Amazing waterfront location at Kuhio Shores

  • 4 of 5

As soon as you walk in the front door, you feel like you are literally 'on' the water in this tidy unit. The surf is loud and energizing!! The ground floor made coming and going to the great snorkel beach a short walk away so easy, and we could watch surfers and spot turtles up close right from the lanai. Spouting Horn, shopping at Kukui'ula, and Poipu Beach were also reasonable walking distances, if you don't mind walking a few miles in the sunshine. The property was clean and reasonably maintained; the screen door to the lanai and window screen in the dining room should be fixed and cleaned or replaced. We would recommend this place to friends traveling to Kauai.

You cannot find a better location!!

  • 5 of 5

With the ocean crashing just In front of the unit, surfers to watch every hour, the best snorkeling on the South Side within steps, and one of the best restaurants in the area just steps away, as well as amazing sunsets every is the perfect place to relax and enjoy!! I cannot recommend it too much!!

If the owner would be willing to do some upgrading, I would start with the shower door enclosure, that is pretty old and ghetto...hard to even open to turn on the shower from the left. Also all of the kitchen cabinets are sticky.. Hard to open (I broke 2 fingernails) and no handles to help...

The two chairs that are TV reading chairs could use new softer cushions.

Also realize there in no A/C in any of these units, so when it is very hot (it was 87-90 many of the days we were there, with good breeze some days, but not others) it is hard to stay comfortable....even with the fans provided.

And, overall, we would go back again... It is a great setting!! Thank you for allowing us to share your great property. A

Ocean View is Awesome

  • 2 of 5

The view from the lanai was awesome. We loved having breakfast, dinner, or just sipping wine daily watching surfers morning and evening and even saw a few sea turtles popping up their heads. However, be advised, the unit is old. It was built in 1973, and it appears that the owner (s) have put little or nothing into the unit. The furniture in old, the cushions on the chairs are broken down from years of use, the bed has a memory foam topper which helped a bit, the pillows are very old, flat, and doubtful they have ever been washed, the appliances are old as well and the cabinets could use a good scrubbing as do the floors (don’t look around the edges), and tile is chipped in places. The unit needs a thorough cleaning, as well as, a fresh coat of paint and wall repair. Dust is thick on the bedroom closets. Because this unit is on the south side, it does not get the pleasant island breezes even though we had windows and front door open. There are two ceiling fans (bedroom and dining area) which offer very little help. They seem to have one speed. Fortunately, the owner has purchased a standing fan that can be moved from room to room for airflow. There was nice air coming in the bedroom; however, we were not comfortable leaving it wide open all night(used the stick that was provided). Be aware, sliding door does not lock. However, there is a stick to put in the channel. Fortunately, we were not on Kaua’i to sit in a condo, and we had a great time on the island. We will definitely return, but will look elsewhere for a place to stay.

Best Vacation spot ever!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a relaxing week at your beautiful condo. Can't beat the ocean front location- watching turtles from our breakfast table in the am and sleeping to the sounds of the waves at night. Can't wait to come back!! Thank you

Amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at this condo for 8 nights (May 2016) and had a wonderful visit. This condo is not fancy, but it was very clean and both the regular bed and the pull out were very comfortable. The condo was well equipped with dishes, cooking tools, spices, blankets and beach towels (2). The condo also has snorkel gear (fins fit only very large feet), a boogie board (1 and the tether was broken so it was unusable) and extra beach chairs. We can't emphasize enough how wonderful this location is and having a ground floor unit that we could just walk out the back glass door to see sunrises, surfers, turtles and sunsets was so wonderful for us. The location has perfect views out the back windows all day long and when open provide a nice ocean breeze that cools down the condo quickly. Lawai beach is a minute walk away for sunning, swimming, surfing, or snorkeling. It's a tad rocky so getting in and out of surf can be a bet tricky, but it was great for snorkeling as we saw multitudes of colorful fish and sea turtles. (We did have to share the beach one day with a very lazy monk seal). Riptide shaved ice is right across from the beach access (where you should go into the water for least resistance!). The condo is located perfectly on the island as Spouting Horn and Allerton Botanical Gardens are a 5 minute drive away, Poipu Beach is a 5 minute drive away, shopping and multiple dinner locations are within 3 minutes drive. Waimea Canyon is 30 minutes west and Princeville is 1 hour north and east! And driving back into Lihue (or getting to the condo from the airport) took about 20 minutes (with traffic). Hope to visit again and we would certainly look to stay here again anytime!
