Oceanfront luxury condo, 2 Bedrooms with king size beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Open the door to our beautiful second home in Kauai and know you are in paradise. There is nothing between you and the vast blue ocean, just 35 feet away, which is framed by a wall to wall expanse of floor to ceiling windows. The soothing sounds of the ocean fill the condo and the whispering trade winds carry the island fragrances inside. Air-conditioned for those few days when the trade winds are stilled. This is absolutely one of the most desirable locations and condos on Kauai. Relax on the spacious lanai offering unbeatable views of rainbows, whales, sea turtles, and the best surfing action in all of Poipu.
The condo projects out from the surrounding units and offers an expansive ocean view with its wrap-around windows. Visitors come from all over the island to photograph the gorgeous sunsets at the adjacent Beach House Restaurant and the same view is available from our condo. Our second floor location provides both privacy and security. The furniture is Hawaiian style rattan and the artwork is island themed. Tile and bamboo floors complete the tropical look. The spacious lanai accommodates four very comfortably. The condo is equipped with everything we could think of to make your vacation perfect including two large flat panel TVs with DVD players, a telescope and binoculars for whale watching, and all the comforts of home. Beach equipment for your day trips include four quality beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, boogey boards, sand toys, and beach coolers.
Each of the two bedrooms has a king size bed, a ceiling fan, a large closet, and plenty of storage. The windows in the bedrooms have plantation shutters and face the mountains, allowing you to sleep easy as the trade winds sweep through the unit. Two twin size floor mattresses and a portable crib/playpen are available for children and babies. Both bathrooms feature large marble showers, spacious vanities and sinks, and bamboo theme faucets and hardware. The kitchen was fully remodeled in 2012 and has solid cherry plantation style cabinets and granite counter tops. It is fully equipped with all new top of the line KitchenAid appliances. A Cuisinart blender, coffeemaker, toaster, top quality pots and pans, and numerous gadgets make your culinary adventures enjoyable. The Kuhio Shores BBQ area has two high quality propane barbecues with barbeque utensils conveniently located for your use. Then bring your food inside and dine at the glass and rattan table surrounded by the ocean. Seating is available for two more at the bar.
If you like to snorkel or surf, you'll love this spot even more. Directly to the right is sandy Lawai Beach that Sunset Magazine once named the best snorkeling spot on the south shore of Kauai. When the south swell hits, surf spots Smokey's, PK's, Centers and Acid Drop are perfect and located literally downstairs. Enjoy an easy walk to the upscale shops and restaurants at the Kukuiula Shopping Center or get your morning exercise by walking to Spouting Horn (one of the most photographed sites on Kauai) or to the famous Allerton Botanical Garden. Less than a 5 minute car ride takes you to historic Koloa Town, the grounds of the Grand Hyatt Resort, and the stunning Poipu Beach (ranked by the Travel Channel as one of the best beaches in the world).

So relaxing - great view!
Loved this condo for us. Interesting watching the surfers just off the lanai. Very well equipped condo that has everything we wished for!
Pounding surf and turtles in the surf make for a very relaxing stay. Nice, well appointed condo.
Everything you ever wanted....and more
This was one of the best rentals we've ever had. The location, the views, the rooms..it was like we were living in our place. Susan and Larry have thought of EVERYTHING to make a vacation care free. The property is in a great location with snorkeling and surfing right out the door. It also felt more like a community and less like a tourist area. We've traveled the globe, and we put Kauai and Poipu 218 in our top 3 of all time. Perfect in every way. Thanks again Susan and Larry for sharing this paradise!
Our New Favorite Place
Thank you, Susan, for making our first trip to Kauai one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had. The condo was just perfect for two couples. Susan was very helpful, quick to respond when we had any questions and accommodating to us. The condo had good circulation and there were numerous fans so we had no problems sleeping. We were very grateful to have the beach chairs. Some of our favorite activities were; watching weddings from the dining room windows on the Beach House lawn; watching the turtles and surfers from the lanai; and the sunsets (and sunrises) were so amazing!!! We kept searching for wales but didn't see any (November is kind of early), but maybe next time. We were warned about roosters crowing in Kauai, but didn't hear any here. There were flocks of green parrots that come in to roost every evening after sunset in the trees of the parking lot. I wished they had come during the daylight hours, so we could get some pictures. We did learn (the hard way) to watch where we parked our rental car, as we found one tree was especially popular with the birds. We hope to return very soon to our new favorite place.
My husband and I stayed here with my parents, and the gorgeous property was perfect for us. It is more beautiful than pictured, incredibly well stocked, spotlessly clean, obviously much loved by its owners, and in the most fabulous setting we could have imagined. We watched surfers and feeding turtles every day, at all times of day, from the lanai. We even spotted a reef shark, though I believe the surfers were less enthusiastic than we were! The very best snorkelling during our two week adventure on Kauai was found on the adjacent beach; we saw hundreds of colorful fish and two beautiful turtles up close and personal. The sunsets were amazing works of art...different every day. The complex is quiet, beautifully maintained and in a lovely location. It was only 15 minutes to Port Allen, where we departed for an amazing catamaran trip to see the Napali coast. The location is also a perfect home base for the myriad of amazing hiking trails in nearby Waimea State Park. Susan was terrific, answering all questions prior to booking and making the process very simple. I would highly recommend this property! We were so very sad to leave...and can't wait to return.
Second Stay - Loved It!
We stayed here for a week in December 2013 and loved it so much we rented it for almost two weeks in December 2015. The place is lovely, convenient to everything and very relaxing. We saw Whales, Dolphin and Turtles almost every day. We did have a small problem with the entry door while we were there. I only mention that because I want you to know that Susan was totally responsive and all over it! We appreciate involved owners. No need to write a longer review. If you are looking at the photos and description and it is open on your dates book it now.
Next to the best surfing & snorkeling in Kauai, Hawaii!
