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 South Shore

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.

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

Ann!

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.

We found this condo a great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good stay. The owners are very attentive and nice to deal with. The Unit is in very good condition, clean, and well stocked with amenities, particularly dishes, glasses, and kitcken equipment, so we didn't have to wash dishes frequently.

We travelled with some friends who rented a very similar condo about 5 or 6 buildings up. But ours (#203) was nicer and oriented well so the trade winds kept it very comfortable the entire time. Unfortunately, our friends were not as lucky in orientation for the breezes, so ours was the prime socializing spot.

Unit 203 is in the second to last building on the lane, and therefore, no more than 50 yards to a very nice private pool and virtually the closest unit to Benecke and Poipu Park beaches. If you play tennis, don't overlook asking about using the courts 100 yds away.

Thanks Ann, et al.

HOT HOT HOT NOT NOT NOT

  • 2 of 5

The facility was old and required some work on doors and wallpaper. No air conditioning made the facility unuseable for cooking. Upstairs tenants were centipedes with Jimmy Hoffa boots. Poor insulation between the floors. Biggest problem however, was no air conditioning. 90 degree heat and 85% humidity made it impossible to sleep in this unit many nights.

The groundspeople maintaining the pool and yard were fantastic as were all the employees at the various restaurants we ate at, out of necessity because the condo was too hot to cook in.

Would I go back. Not a chance.

Owner's Response: The weather in the tropics is changeable and on occasion the trade winds stop blowing which cause the temperature to rise.  We are sorry this guest had such a difficult experience.  These comments, although very real in this guest's mind, come under the category of "you can't please everyone", but we do our best to provide our guests with a positive lodging experience.  Since we purchased this condo in the 90’s we have done extensive remodeling of kitchen, flooring, bathroom and more. We are continually updating and improving. It is a lovely condo in a great location in a beautiful resort. We will let our photos and other reviews speak for themselves.
