About The Owner

We live and work in Southern California, and we love to travel. When we first visited Kauai, we felt so rejuvenated and loved exploring the unspoiled island. We resolved to return often. Now we take pleasure and pride in our condo. We have a morning ritual of sipping local Kauai coffee and fresh fruit smoothies on the lanai where we watch the birds and the palm trees sway as we plan our day. Things we most enjoy include the fresh fish; local fruit, vegetable and flora 'Sunshine' farmer's markets; the clean air and trade winds; the warm, inviting ocean as going into the water makes us feel like kids again; finding hideaway spots at beaches; and relaxing on our lanai spending stress-free time together. We know you'll enjoy staying at Poipu Sands, our home away from home.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why The Owner chose South Shore

In planning our 1st Kauai trip, we read in the LA Times that Poipu Sands was highly requested and ideally located. While staying there, we agreed! So on our 2nd visit, we extensively researched Kauai properties, and asked a local broker to let us know when specific Poipu Sands units became available. A few months later we had the keys to our own piece of paradise. Poipu Sands is steps away from Shipwreck Beach and the 5-star Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa, and only a short walk or drive to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke's Beach. We love that Poipu Sands is located on a 7-acre greenbelt, making it very low density and truly a lush, tropical environment. We enjoy the ground floor location close enough to hear the surf break.

What makes this condo unique

From our unit, you hear the surf break as we are ~150 yards from the water's edge. The condo is set back, well away from street noise. Poipu Sands has its own swimming pool and tennis court (no charge). In a few minutes, you can walk to the sandy and beautiful Shipwreck Beach as well as the 5-star Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa (our neighboring property). The Grand Hyatt has fine and casual dining plus live entertainment and spectacular grounds. Two golf courses are within a few miles of our property; in fact you can walk to the golf course at the Grand Hyatt. A well-maintained, well-lit (for evening strolls) path meanders through the Poipu Kai Resort community leading to Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke's Beach. Condo parking is very convenient and plentiful. You get free high speed Internet access and a very comfortable new California King size bed. Our condo is a very spacious, ~1000 square foot, 1 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath unit. It opens to a lanai with partial ocean views and is located in a park-like setting. With an equipped kitchen, the condo has a warm and homey feel. Poipu Sands is part of Poipu Kai which has 7 swimming pools and 9 tennis courts (soft and hard surfaces). The condo is close to the famous Roy's restaurant and natural attractions such as Spouting Horn.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed our stay in your lovely condo. It is very well equipped with all necessities. Also loved the location to take walks and also the way access to the Grand Hyatt. We didn't need AC with the lovely ocean breezes. We hope to return soon!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! It had everything we needed (including beach gear, kitchen supplies, extra linens, washer/dryer) and it was well kept and very clean. Poipu Sands is a very quiet complex and also well kept. Even though we went during summer and it was hot outside the condo stayed cool and the ceiling fans and trade winds kept it at a comfortable temperature. The owners were very easy to talk to and were quick to respond to any questions we had. We would definitely return to this condo in the future. We were sad to leave as it felt like home after our 10 day stay.

Wonderful, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean when I arrived, and is exactly as the description on VRBO stated. There is no central AC, but with fans and windows, it was manageable.

Great owners, very responsive and easy to work with!

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom condo is wonderful. It is equipped with everything you will need for your trip.Before going to the grocery store check in the kitchen for coffee filters etc. The location is perfect, near great beaches and restaurants.The parking is right out front so no lugging your luggage up flights of stairs. I enjoyed going to the pool after long days of snorkeling and being the only one there. it felt like my own private pool!!!! We never used the outdoor grill since we ate out for dinner every night, but it's there if you are so inclined to use it. We had breakfast every morning on the lanai, to the sound and view of the ocean. I would defiantly rent this condo again.

Loved our time here!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this unit. The location is amazing. The beach and walking trails are basically right outside the unit. The unit itself was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The owners were also very pleasant and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!
