Our unit is the CLOSEST 1 BEDROOM CONDO BY OWNER TO THE OCEAN. From our lanai and even inside our condo, you will HEAR THE SURF BREAK.

NOTE: Poipu Sands swimming pool will be under renovation from mid-Aug to mid-Dec; however, good news that the Poipu Kai swimming pool is available to our Poipu Sands renters!

Poipu Sands is situated on 7.5 acres of lush, tropical, well-maintained grounds. Within Poipu Kai, Poipu Sands has the only private tennis court and its own swimming pool and barbecues. Poipu Sands condos are the only condos in Poipu Kai with direct beach access (no need to cross a street, no traffic, no cars...just an easy and beautiful path to the beach). Also, our condo is on the ground floor with easy access from the near-by parking and no need to haul luggage or groceries up & down stairs.

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!

  • 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!

Second Stay as Nice as the First

  • 5 of 5

This was our second great stay at Shelley and Greg’s unit 418 Poipu Sands. This time we spent more time right at their condo enjoying the tennis court, the pool and gas barbeque grills. We played tennis nearly every day on an excellent court. The private swimming pool is beautiful, clean, nice chaise lounges and no crowds. Shipwreck Beach, front of the Hyatt is a few hundred feet away so we went there as well. The restaurants and bars at the Hyatt are open to the public so we enjoyed several lunches there. The hotel pool is for their guests only. We also walked to the Hyatt for Starbucks coffee most mornings.

One day we hiked from Shipwreck beach east to Mahaulepu Beach, then beyond to Haula beach and back. We also snorkeled at Poipu beach, about a fifteen minute walk from the condo. We drove to the north shore twice and enjoyed several beaches, lunch at Kilauea and Hanalei. As always, we drove up Wiamea Canyon road to the Kalalau overlook for great views. Took a catamaran sunset dinner cruise along the Napali coast. In our eight trips to Kauai we had never done that and saw from the ocean the places we camped on our four Kalalau trail backpacking trips spread over the last thirty years.

The condo itself is terrific: Clean, well equipped in every way, nicely decorated and serves as a great base for not only Poipu, but the entire island. Their business practices are very professional, ranging from email reminders, information instructions, tip sheets, keys, timely deposit return and follow-ups. We have stayed at a variety of hotels and resorts on Kauai and Shelley and Greg’s place is our favorite.

Close to ocean. Great view and sounds. Spacious one bedroom.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice ground floor one bedroom. Easy walkout to ocean which is close by. Next door to Grand Hyatt which has gorgeous grounds. Nice little walking trail along ocean to west of unit.Nicely appointed kitchen. King bed very comfortable. Nice linens. Updated unit except living room furniture is dated and uncomfortable. TV quite small and no TV in bedroom. No A/C but fans and trade winds keep unit comfortable.
