About Mark or Ann Thompson

Three California families traveled to Kauai in 1992 and fell in love with the island and with the sunny south shore in particular. We decided to purchase a condo in the beautiful Poipu Kai resort so we could return often. We are now all retired from our careers in education and business and get to enjoy our condo once a year and, if we're lucky, our kids and grandkids get to join us from time to time.

Why Mark or Ann Thompson chose Poipu

Manualoha #203 is in the perfect location. It is in the second building just up from Brennecke's beach, just a stroll away. The condo is also close to the lovely pool that overlooks the beach, but it is not too close so there is no pool noise. The resort itself is beautifully maintained and is luxuriant with lawn and trees. The buildings are only two-story and are scattered throughout the property with plenty of garden and green space in between the buildings. The resort is quiet, well maintained and spacious but best of all it is close to the beaches of Poipu - paradise!

What makes this condo unique

When you rent our condo, you are dealing with us, the owners, rather than a corporation. We view our condo as our second home rather than as a rental. We strive to maintain our Kauai home in top notch condition and have beautifully upgraded and refurbished the kitchen, the bathrooms, the lanai, the flooring.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed staying at your Manualoha condo (#203). You have a beautiful place with a fabulous location! We loved Kauai and took advantage of all the outdoor activities the island has to offer. Your condo provided a relaxing and serene place to return to at the end day. We look forward to staying there again in the future. And I will definitely be recommending this spot to our friends.

Perfect Location for Kaua'i Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at this wonderfully furnished condo just off Poipu Beach. Location cannot be beat - 2 minute walk to best snorkeling beach in Kaua'i and best place to watch sunsets. Beach chairs/mats/umbrellas/towels were all supplied. Condo was roomy and fully equipped modern kitchen had everything we needed to cook every day. Nice patio for outdoor eating. Open louvers & ceiling fans supplied nice cooling breeze throughout unit. Grounds were lovely and lush. Owner Ann was easy to communicate with and supplied helpful advice. We hope to return one day!

Paradise Found in Poipu!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed 8 wonderful days at this property in December. This is a very nice condo that is well-equipped for a couple spending some time in Kauai. We enjoyed being a few steps from the pool as well as a short walk away from Poipu Beach. The king size bed is very comfortable. We enjoyed several dinners out on the back patio. When we next return to Kauai, staying here again would be our first choice!

Great Stay at the Condo, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Ann and Marks condo. The condo is perfectly situated steps away from the pool and 2 minutes walk from the Poipu beach area for great snorkeling and boogie boarding. A few minutes drive down the road is a shopping plaza with restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. The condo is furnished with plenty of fans and with the natural trade winds it's comfortable enough to sleep at night. There is a beach umbrella, beach chairs, a small kids boogie board available at the condo, however if you'd like to snorkel/surf/boogie board etc. you have to rent those at a shop on the beachfront. The condo itself is well furnished and provides a comfortable place to relax after a day at the beach or touring the island.

Amazing Location! Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent four days in Mark and Ann's condo and loved every second of it. The condo is located perfectly. Steps from the pool and steps from the beach. The condo is lovely. It is well appointed and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking meals or making your perfect tropical drink! While we were there, the condo was quiet and peaceful. If there were other people around, we never heard them. Ann was very attentive to our needs. She always got right back to us if we had a question. Loved the nice touches in the condo - a great book of things to do in and around Kauai. Maps, directions, restaurants, things to do, etc. All in all a perfect vacation and place to stay. I definitely will be going back to Kauai and hopefully can rent Ann and Mark's condo again. Highly recommended!!! Thanks Mark and

Peaceful, easy feeling...

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here. This condo had everything I needed. Kitchen fully supplied, even coffee! Bed, super comfy. Nice living room area and out door area. Very short walk to the beach and tennis and good location to venture from. Ann, the owner, was very helpful and acomidating when my son unexpectedly joined me. She also allowed me a late check out which helped so much. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property.
