About John Ferrante

Hi, my name is John Ferrante. We've been coming to Poipu for the last 15 years and now have our primary residence there. We love Kauai and you will too! I've been managing the rental of our condo during that time and it has been a wonderful experience to share our home with so many others looking for a great vacation location. We keep the condo in great condition, continually updated to reflect a contemporary Hawaiian atmosphere so that our guests can enjoy a unique yet affordable stay.

I encourage you to read the reviews and comments previous guests have provided to get a good idea of the quality of this accommodation. I look forward working with you directly to insure a great vacation experience on Kauai and at Poipu Crater Resort.

John Ferrante purchased this condo in 1999

Why John Ferrante chose South Shore

We purchased our condo because of the uniqueness of the property. The duplexes are polynesian in style and the property is like an island unto itself. It is low density residences surrounded by tropical gardens where each building is it's own unique position. People are very friendly and there is a fantastic pool area where visitors and owners can greet one another. There is so much to do within a few minutes drive and it is an easy walk to get anywhere in the Poipu Coastal area. Poipu Crater is truly a vacation destination unto itself.

What makes this condo unique

Probably one of the nicest benefits is the property itself. So many others are concrete buildings with narrow, hotel-style balconies as your outdoor living space This townhome has a very large lanai which becomes a gathering place for dining, reading, enjoying your favorite beverage or just watching the sway of the palms and birds. Your own dedicated parking spot is just a few feet away from the unit with no stairs. This is an amazing advantage since most Poipu Condo's have large parking lots a good walk from the condo, and stairs which is tiresome carrying groceries and beach gear. . The swimming pool and clubhouse is probably one of the largest in the Poipu Area, feeling almost hotel like and a luxury when just a small number of units have access to it.

Great place ...quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay on this property. The house is ultra clean and the furnishings and appliances are all well maintained. It's a totally a great place to just hangout and chill in a lazy afternoon and read a good book . Surrounded by trees and lush green shrubbery,

It's really just a great place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Totally enjoyed our stay and John was always prompt

returning calls and texts whenever we have questions . Thank you John for being such a gracious host.

Wonderful stay at the Crater

  • 5 of 5

We family of four with two kids (3.5yr and 7month) stayed here in early Januar for almost a week. The condo is beautiful decorated with a lot of details. Besides all the kitchenware it has everything you need (baby cot, beach chairs, snorkels etc.). The location is great and John was very responsive via email when we had questions. Poipu Crater is dedicated for a family vacation. We would highly recommend the condo and we love the beautiful island. We will come back.

Great property tuck away in a crater!

  • 4 of 5

Quiet, secluded and private. Was a very easy place to stay in Poipu. We would recommend for 2 couples to share the more than adequate condo. Easy access to the beach and to some local restaurants. Convenient for getting to the other Kauai sites i.e. Waimea Canyon, Kapaa, Hanalei, Napali, etc. Also easy access to shopping and groceries. Our stay was very enjoyable. Owner, John F. was very attentive and available as needed (luckily not needed but to answer a few questions).

The pool water was a bit on the chilly side and it was actually being recharged when we ere there but no worries, we went to the beach! Breakfast on the deck was a pleasure with many birds in the trees seemed more like a jungle retreat. The sun did get a little intense on the deck in late afternoon (perhaps a sun shade would help) but things soon cooled down for early evening and great sunsets.

This was our second time to Kauai but first time in this facility and we think we chose a great place to stay.

Crater#20 Poipu

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here in December for 6 nights.The condo has absolutely everything you need, from beach chairs to snorkels. It was clean and accommodated the 5 of us very comfortably. I loved the Hawaiian decor. The kitchen has everything you need and this allowed us to cook meals . I would highly recommend the condo and we loved the island of Kauai .

We had the best time in Poipu Crater #20

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome "first time" visit to the island of Kauai --- and it started with staying in Poipu Crater #20. There were 4 adults and this condo was spacious enough for all of us. Very clean, personable with artwork from the island --we loved all the pineapple decor! Equipped with full kitchen and washer and dryer--- also a very quiet location so we could relax on the linai after a day full of excursions and siteseeing. Swimming pool was a nice treat too! Definitely will return and we highly recommend this condo!

Wonderful stay at a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, her husband, my nephew and my fiancée all had the pleasure of enjoying 5 days at Poipu Crater #20. It's a PERFECT condo for 2 couples as both rooms have large beds, spacious rooms and access to bathroom by each respective room. The condo is VERY CLEAN, equipped with all the amenities of home, and even has a closet full of beach toys (chairs, boards, etc) to use. The kitchen is well equipped and quite updated. The floor plan is spacious with separate dining room, living room and lanai. It was perfect for our 2 families to feel like we were on family vacation, awhile being able to retreat to our own spaces when needed.

The location is very convinient to Poipu Town (the beach and shopping). I've been visiting my family in Kauai all my life and will definitely recommend AND return to Poipi Crater #20.
