About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath in lush tropical garden setting close to the beach.

Aloha! Welcome to our Pacific island vacation home in the sun

Our stylishly remodeled "Honu" (Hawaiian for "turtle") is one of 15 Polynesian style buildings (each with 2 villas) dispersed in a lush tropical resort of over 7 acres known as Poipu Crater. The grounds resemble a botanical garden rather than a typical condo complex, providing a tranquil retreat from any traffic noise and the usual hustle and bustle. Poipu's best beaches and oceanfront pathways are a short stroll away.

Our villa is steps to the tennis court and putting green, and we are closest to the large swimming pool suitable for kids and for doing laps. There are plenty of lounge chairs, and often you may have it all to yourselves. The adjacent club house has restrooms and sauna, ping-pong table, cooking facilities (BBQ's) and indoor/outdoor furnished common areas ideal for gatherings with friends-family-guests, rain or shine.

A spacious lanai (patio) is a focal point for relaxing with a cocktail or good book, or just soaking in the soothing sounds of the many song birds. Inside there are two levels. Upstairs is exclusively the private master suite with king size bed and full ensuite bath. The main floor has the second bedroom with extra-long twin beds, adjacent the second full bathroom with washer and dryer. A fully stocked kitchen opens to an eating area with in Indonesian woven banana leaf dining set. The living room is two steps down with a flat screen TV and large sofas for lounging or napping

If you rent a vehicle to visit the many wonderful sites around Kauai, there is a free reserved parking spot mere steps to our villa along a stair-less path. There are extra parking spaces for visitors too.

We wish you many pleasant memories in our home on the magical garden isle of Kauai.

What is exceptional about Poipu Crater is what is not present in this tranquil, relaxed setting - no vehicle, foot, truck, motorcycle traffic; no noise, no congestion, no commerce, no crowds – just quiet enjoyment of the beautiful grounds. Tucked away with a private driveway linking the 15 buildings, it’s as close to a private and secure "gated" community as you can find on Kauai.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this cute crater condo. Lots of things for the kids to do before we walked to the beach. Everything we needed was in the place. Thanks for an amazing place to stay.

Days Creek, Oregon

A quiet vacation rental, except for the roosters

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice property and we enjoyed it very much. First the positives:

1. The kitchen was very well equipped with a wide variety of pots, pans, utensils and small appliances. The refrigerator was quite large, but a little difficult to get into because of its size and location.

2. The beds were comfortable.

3. The master bath is adequate, but the downstairs bath was fully remodeled with a beautiful shower.

4. There was a nice bottle of wine in the fridge waiting for us.

5. There are a number of chairs, coolers, boogie boards there for you to use.

6. The pool/ clubhouse/ barbque area is quite nice and has a kitchen too.

7. The lanai is convienant with comfortable chairs. A great place for meals.

8. Great internet

9. Property is very close to Poipu beach park where we spent a lot of time

10. Designated parking spot is close to the unit and an easy walk.

Now the negatives

1. The couches and dining room chairs are not comfortable at all

2. The units is over decorated, cluttered, making it difficult to get around and to find a surface to put your stuff on.

3. The crater is exactly that. You are in a hole, so no views and you have to walk a lot of hills to go for a walk

4. No air conditioning, which could be a problem for some because the master is upstairs. Lots of fans though.

5. The ground keepers did not once come clean leaves off the sidewalk when we were there for a week. The leaves made it slippery for walking.

6. There is no hot tub

7. Roosters will start crowing at 5 AM, so bring earplugs.

8. A splatter screen for cooking would help keep the stove clean.
