About the property

Condo, Studio +Futon couch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The beach and crystal blue waters of Hoai Bay and the Pacific are only a two minute walk away. Fine dining is just across the street, and other beaches and shopping in Koloa and Poipu are just a five to ten minute drive.

This studio is the very last unit on the ground floor of the resort, so it is private and secluded, yet only a very short walk to the parking garage, and to the pool.

About Anne Wachler

The cheerful and courteous owners hope you have as much fun as they do.

Anne Wachler purchased this condo in 2007

Why Anne Wachler chose Poipu

After my mother-in-law passed away we sold her condo, and were told that we could save a lot on taxes if we purchased another property. We looked at three condos in Poipu. This was my least favorite. But my wife liked it the best. I'm not the smartest man in the world, but I'm not stupid. We bought this one!

What makes this condo unique

When I was in school, I would always try to sit in the back of the class. Carole said she did the same. This unit is all the way in the back, so it just kinda fits our anti-social personalities. Besides, it's got a lot of room, is really close to the pool, and is cool all the time. And Carole's done a lot of neat stuff with the decor (my contribution was painting the bamboo on the wall).

Amenities incorrect, no wifi, but comfortable bed

  • 1 of 5

I would not stay here again. Depending on what is important to you it might be ok, but the agency that manages this is not truthful in their listing and not helpful, so you should be cautious.

To begin with, we booked this and were confirmed and then were called a few months later and told that we were being moved to a different unit and were supposed to have been told this a while ago. Not a huge deal, but indicative of the issues the management company has. The mother told me her son was supposed to tell me a long time ago and hadn't.

We arrived at the unit and the first thing we noticed were hundreds of parakeets squawking and pooping on everything. They come every evening and every morning so if loud bird calls bother you, don't stay here.

We then looked an couldn't find the snorkeling gear that was promised on the listing. This was a problem since we specifically hadn't bought or rented any since all the places were were staying at said they had them. I reached out to the management company and they said yes they're supposed to be there, but we're not responsible if someone else who stayed before didn't return it. um, what? It was listed as an amenity of the property and part of the rent, so yes you are. The other öutdoor gear"was a boogie board set that was rendered useless since the straps are gone. So another thing they promised that wasn't there.

The icing on the cake is the non-functional wifi. Yes, TECHNICALLY there is wifi but it's so slow that it takes 2 minutes to open single page, so effectively there is none.

Having said that it location is fine (although only one restaurant in walking distance) and the bed is comfy.

TL;DR: non functional wifi, lies on amenities, no outdoor gear, unreliable management, loud birds, decent location and comfortable bed

It was just right for two people. We stayed in #133.

Location was great, snorkeling was the best at our beach right across the street! Had outstanding meals making use of the kitchen daily (and special thanks to my very talented,chef/main squeeze for that part😄?.) Loved the first floor location and our resident chickens. Close to everything, easy to get around the island. Staff at the property were so friendly and cheerful, we would highly recommend it.

Great location, perfect for 2!

  • 4 of 5

The unit itself was a bit tricky to find at first, as it is down a corridor, but the property manager was very helpful in helping us find the entrance to the unit. The location of the property is quite good, as you have quick and easy access to anything in Poipu.

The internet was not good/not working when we were there and it was a bit annoying trying to communicate this, but it really didn't affect our overall experience on the Island.

The room is a good size for 2 and we were pleased with the kitchen amenities that were available. The shower leaves a bit to be desired, but again it really didn't affect our stay on the island.

So if you are an easy going couple who are here to enjoy the beautiful nature of Hawaii then this is a good room for you. It is simple and comfortable and helped us enjoy our stay. P.S. John and Anne are great communicators and will get back to you with any issues you may have.

We spent a relaxing week here. The kitchen was very well equiped and we BBQed steaks out by the pool.. We made good use of the beach chairs, umbrella, mats and ice chest at the beach just down the street. It was nice to be far from the street. The only negative was the whimpy air conditioner but that could be because of the unusual humidity we had. We were glad to have the fan. We would stay here again.
