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.

Poipu crater villa #29 was a fantastic place to stay.
Poipu crater #29 was a very pleasant place to be. The pool, tennis court, putting green, and bbqs are all right there. The villa was stocked with extras also. I strongly suggest to whoever stays here to check in before renting any beach gear or groceries. We shopped and rented snorkel gear prior checking in and realized a lot of the stuff we bought was already stocked at the villa. It does get a little warm in the crater due to a lack of wind, but tons of vegetation for shade and a lot of fans inside the house to keep cool or a quick dip in the pool was all it took. I would strongly recommend the villa to anyone.
Everything was perfect!!
Je vous recommande fortement cette habitation. Bien située, propre et tranquille
Property not as advertised
The property I rented online for my stay in Kauai looked nothing like the place we actually stayed. The photos online showed a decor of bright tropical colors with rattan furniture. The place we found when we arrived looked more like a New York City apartment with the primary decor colors of black and brown and leather and metal furniture. I would never have picked this property and was very disappointed. Although the local property manager did respond when we reported the WiFi password was not working she ignored our requests for help on another matter, remote for downstairs tv did not work. Called and left messages for her and texted her. No response. On the positive side, the kitchen had been completely updated and was fully equipped which was great because I love to cook. In addition, the downstairs bath had been updated but not the master. Clean but a bit tired looking. With all the rentals available in the Poipu area, I will stay some where else on my next trip.
This is in response to the comments provided by a recent visitor to one of the Poipu Crater units under my management. We endeavour to respond quickly and appropriately to all concerns and issues raised by renters and have replied to the review posted on VRBO to this rental property. While we appreciate the positive comments about the tropical-modern décor of this unit, we regret that this guest found some of the furnishings and décor to be different from those shown on the VRBO website - I can confirm that this unit nicely fits into it’s tropical garden setting, as shown in the gallery photos of the confirmed unit and that this is one of the most popular (see other reviews) of our units with many returning guests. The problems with the internet and TV connection were related to a site-wide installation of new cable service and all the related issues (this was one of 30 units receiving the new service) were successfully remedied.

Loved this place. Quiet, secluded and convenient in a central location on the island. This villa was perfect for the four of us. It is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you will need for your stay on Kaui. During our Feb stay it was nice and cool at nights and kept us dry with the covered lanai on the rainy days. Would definitely recommend it.
We loved the song birds in the morning.
Very comfortable and quiet. We really enjoyed the song birds in the morning and the close proximity to the pool. The property manager was very responsive to the few questions we had. We made daily use of the beach chairs and beach umbrella.
Wonderful place to stay
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.
Kauai is a island wonder of beaches, mountains, trails, and rivers in a largely untouched, rural and unspoiled natural setting. There are hundreds of outdoor adventures and activities to enjoy. Whether sailing/boating, helicopter/flying, surfing/swimming or beach combing, it is all there for your enjoyment.
