About Jeff & Pamela Deis

After visiting Kauai for 15 years, we purchased our condo in what we believe is the best location on the island - Poipu Sands. The location is adjacent to the Grand Hyatt and Shipwreck beach, the grounds are spacious and beautifully maintained and the condo complex is not dense with plenty of privacy. We have constantly improved the condo since purchasing it in 2014 and will continue to do. We are fortunate to have such a great place and enjoy sharing it with others.

Our condo was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

7 great nights in a wonderful condo with everything our family needed. Pool was perfect and much larger than I thought. View was spectacular! I could see people jumping off Shipwrecks, watch incredible sunrises and see amazing sunsets. Turtles were fantastic and only yards away. You could walk anywhere from the condo by way of the paved paths to different resorts. We will definitely be back again. Thank you for your fantastic rental!

Poipu Sands- home from home - M & J

  • 5 of 5

223 is a beautifully situated Condo with an ocean view and it has been our pleasure to stay in this unit these past 6 to 7 years for our annual

The apartment is directly opposite the swimming pool and is located adjoacent to the Grand Hyatt which has to be one of the best appointed hotels in the world. They also welcome visitors to their beautiful gardens.

The Condo is comfortably furnished and ideal for 4 people. The current owner continues to upgrade his property to ensure light and spacious rooms. We enjoy the beautiful grounds and there is plenty of scope for long or short walks when you will come across Hawaiian Monk Seals and Green Tutles. This year we saw few whales but most years they are in abundance.

We make the property our home for the time we stay and we will be returning in 2018.

Note: The building work opposite continues but unfortunately this is outside the control of the owner and hopefully will be completed in the coming months. There are plenty of places to escape to it has not stopped our engjoyment of being here. The

Construction Site

  • 2 of 5

Lovely large lanai with well laid out, relatively large condo. This condo was built in 1980 and has had a few improvements such as some new paint & new carpet. Some of the furniture has been recovered. The bed in the master is comfortable. The ensuite shower/tub is large and pleasant. There is some deferred maintenance such as the need to replace a deteriorating dishwasher with rusty racks. The owners have kindly left beach toys/chairs for the use of their renters. Communication can be an issue. At the time of booking this condo, I asked Garden Island Rentals if there was any construction in the vicinity. They told me there was some at the neighboring resort but it did not bother anyone. In fact, when we arrived, the neighboring resort was shrouded in scaffolding, and noisy construction work with heavy equipment operation, sawing & hammering took place from 9 am-6pm weekdays. This unit looked directly across to the construction. It was necessary to go touring rather than enjoy the grounds, lanai or pool area. Because of this experience, we asked the rental company, several days in advance, for a late check-out, on our last day. They neither responded to our phone call or to emails. A copy of this email also garnered no response from the owners. We did not feel this to be the spirit of Aloha.

Owner's Response: Dear Maureen and Family, We have communicated directly since you posted your review, but I’d like to also post a response on our VRBO site. We are truly sorry that your visit was disturbed by construction at the adjacent property. Our management company, Garden Island Rentals (GIR), had informed you, as well as other guests, of the construction and had not heard of noise concerns from previous guests. Unfortunately, your stay overlapped with the noisy demolition phase of construction, which has since been completed. Had you notified GIR during your visit, they could have taken steps to help deal with the situation. I apologize that your call for a late check-out was not returned in a timely manner. It is our error. Your check-out was on a Sunday, and the message did not reach us or GIR until the following Monday. The standard procedure is to flag messages such as yours for immediate attention. Unfortunately, that did not occur and your message was not forwarded over the weekend. I am sorry. We have taken steps to ensure a response to all after hour messages in the future. As I stated in our recent direct communication, we would appreciate the opportunity to make amends and to better accommodate your family should you choose to return.

Thanks Poipu Sands!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place and spent the days wandering the grounds and nearby beaches, as well as using the pool and tennis court. The condo was beautifully decorated and in great shape, no issues. We especially enjoyed the pink sunrise views from the balcony. Our family will definitely be back for another visit to Poipu Sands.

This was a wonderful condo! The grounds are beautiful, and this unit overlooks the pool, lawn area, and has a distant ocean view of Shipwrecks Beach. Loved the large lanai and it's beautiful view! Enjoyed the view and sound of the ocean from the master bedroom. My teenage son was disappointed that the second room (his) was dark and didn't have a view as it faced the parking lot. The unit was clean and well-equipped: one boogie board (though online description says 2), pool toys, snorkel equipment, swim fins, water shoes, pool towels, beach chairs... everything you need but don't want to pack for a comfortable day at the beach or the pool. There were a few quirky things that need fixing (master bath faucet that didn't turn off completely, master bath door doesn't latch shut, some blinds were bent/broken) but they were minor issues that didn't affect our stay. The location close to Poipu Beach was very nice. Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Dear LHH, We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Poipu Sands. As it turned out, we arrived after you and are currently in our unit. The quirky items you mentioned have been corrected - we purchased a boogie board and the leaky faucet, bathroom latch and blinds have been fixed. Thanks for notifying us. We recently purchased the condo and have been upgrading and refreshing it over the past year. Your feedback is helpful. To future guests: please notify our management company, Garden Island Rentals, with any issues about our condo. They will immediately address your concerns. Thanks, JPD
