About Jim

We owned a condo in a much larger complex, After Hurricane Iniki we stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo in this quite little 35 unit condo complex, we fell in love with the views and the sound of the ocean and wanted to be able to share our little piece of heaven with others.

Jim purchased this condo in 2001

Why Jim chose Poipu

I went to high school on Kauai and even after I moved back to the mainland, a part of my heart always stayed on Kauai, the natural beauty, the wonderful people, and

the great aloha spirit kept calling me back. We owned a condo in a much larger complex that didn't have a pool and it felt less like family staying in Sunset Kahili is being with Ohana (family)

What makes this condo unique

You can stay in the lovely 2 bedroom unit #201 on the second floor at Sunset Kahili. You can see the white water below, and down the coast past Spouting Horn to the Island of Niihau.

You will hear the ocean waves crash below (what a lullaby at night) and you can see the water from almost every room of the Condo.

You will enjoy the provided beach chairs, beach towels, and an ice chest for your travels to great beaches and picnics areas around the Island. The Master bedroom has a King size bed, with a large wheelchair access shower in the bathroom, The living room and dining room are equipped with TV, DVD, CD player including IPOD hook up, and high speed internet. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and a second full bath. There is a fully stocked kitchen, with small and large appliances, full compliment of cookware and table settings for a party of eight, plus a washer and dryer. The Balcony is the best spot on the Island for Sunsets (thus the name Sunset Kahili). There are custom made Balcony height chairs, and lounge chairs on the balcony for your comfort plus binoculars for viewing.

The complex also provides a large community room, swimming pool, an assigned parking space, and 2 BBQs.

This is a smoke free building both inside and out.

Thank you for the use of your beautiful condo (1br) for our recent trip to Kauai. The apartment went above and beyond our expectations for everything. Upon our arrival, the condo was absolutely immaculate. You have thought of everything in your well stocked home away from home. We were also quite delighted with the hospitality of the residents at the Sunset Kalihi. I can promise that we will be back and definately will refer anyone we know planning a trip to Hawaii to visit our new favorite island, Kauai...and to you for accomodations.

Amazing ocean view and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and stayed a week at this amazing condo in November 2017. There are sweeping ocean views from nearly every window and the lanai, which was a lovely surprise! The location is quiet yet conveniently close to several restaurants and grocery stores. It is only minutes away from the gorgeous Poipu beach. The apartment was clean, spacious and stocked with every appliance imaginable. Our hosts Jim and Cathy were very responsive to our questions. We look forward to returning to what was undoubtedly our best VRBO experience and recommend it enthusiastically.

Outstanding view at a reasonable price.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is in an older building, but is very nicely maintained. The decor is done in island casual style and is very comfortable. The only negative is a refrigerator which needs to be replaced. I would definitely recommend this condo! The ocean view is outstanding!
