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!

Wonderful ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

What a great roomie condo, with a beautiful ocean view from the lanai. We had the pleasure of staying here for a week, and enjoyed the beautiful walking paths, seals, dolphins, turtles, and whales each morning. Shelly was very easy to communicate with and we had our refund from our deposit within days of returning home. This is truely and amazing property and the grounds are very well maintained . Nice pool and BBQ area as well and easy walking access to numerous beaches. We really liked shipwreck and poupi beach. We had booked again for next year. You won't be disappointed

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Kauai and absolutely loved the island and the Poipu area. We did a lot of touring and driving around and were always happy to come back to our own little piece of heaven. The complex was quiet and the condo had everything we needed. Beach chairs, towels and coolers were really handy to have. It is a very short walk to the beach and if you are wanting a view of the ocean, walk no further than your lanai. The crashing waves were a welcome sound which can also be heard from the lanai.

Shelley was very accommodating and responded quickly to enquiries.

Nice property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Poipu Sands. It's nice ground-floor unit and is very well stocked with everything you need for a great island vacation. Not fancy, but clean and served as a great base for our adventures across the island.

Great condo steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent 1 week of our 3 week Hawaii vacation at this condo, We found it to be very clean and well equipped, including beach chairs and umbrellas. It was nice that everything in the condo was labeled and instructions, if needed, were provided. The location was great-steps away from the Hyatt Regency and Shipwreck beach. It was very convenient for exploring the south shore of Kauai including spectacular Wiamea Canyon. We loved walking the paths near the condo and spotted many turtles, whales and monk seals. We enjoyed eating out at nearby restaurants including Beach House and Keoki"s. We advise shopping for groceries in Lihue as the stores in Poipu and Koloa are expensive and have very limited selections.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Poipu sand is one of the best locations in Poipu. condo is very clean, but door is hard to lock and unlock. Make us nervous about not able to open the door. Bed is a bit uncomfortable. Everything else is terrific.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and glad your stay was mostly terrific! We appreciate knowing that the door lock needed servicing which we are addressing. In the closet are extra items to make the bed softer or firmer as desired, and we are pleased that most renters mention how comfortable the bed is. For your future visits, please let us know of any concerns during your stay so we can address them immediately.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this "temporary home" was wonderful! It was clean, the bed was comfortable, kitchen was well-equipped. Loved the chaise lounges and table/chairs on the patio: great view of the ocean while we enjoyed our coffee in the morning. Extras (i.e., grill, beach chairs, beach towels) were a nice touch. Easy walk to the beach or pool. Good location in Poipu: good area for a morning walk and close (driving) to a variety of restaurants and the famous Poipu Beach Park. My husband and I stay in VRBO's frequently and this is one of the nicest; would definitely stay here again upon a return!
