Deluxe OCEAN VIEW Ground Floor END UNIT...Walk to Grand Hyatt and Beaches

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2-4)

EXCEPTIONAL IN EVERY WAY describes one of the best Poipu Sands condos available. Until you get there, you would not realize the advantages to this unit as compared to all the others. Unlike many of the others, this one is opposite the HEATED POOL area and close enough to the ocean to have an OCEAN VIEW across Shipwreck Beach and the sandstone cliffs in front of the Grand Hyatt Poipu Beach. It is also a GROUND FLOOR unit with expansive lanais that extend out onto a large grassy area. This is an END unit and as such, is one of the few that has a master bedroom in the front WITHOUT A SECOND STORY ABOVE. This allows you the convenience of being on the ground floor with the advantage of no one being above your bedroom that could otherwise keep you awake. The master suite has its own lanai, and is separated from the second bedroom, allowing you maximum privacy if sharing with children or another couple. This combination of unique features makes this one of the PREMIER units at Poipu Sands. If you are going to spend this much money, why settle for anything but the best!

The interior will not disappoint even the most discerning traveler. Luxuriously furnished with the finest furniture, linens, and accessories. From plus towels to good reading lights, everything has been considered in making this the ultimate island home. There are TV’s in the living room, master bedroom, and guest bedroom along with FREE WI-FI, cable, and of course, IPOD ready. If you want to tune out the world and relax, you have come to the right place. Within a very easy 5 minute walk, you can be enjoying Shipwreck Beach in the sun and surf, the finest dining options at the Grand Hyatt, or waiting for the sunset at lighthouse point. How about a sensational day of golf at the Poipu Bay Golf Club or a game of tennis?

The walking paths in Poipu Kai connect you to numerous fine restaurants, several beaches, and of course, the Grand Hyatt Resort. Exercise, relax, and enjoy the sun. This is the place to unwind and restore the soul. The South Shore has the best weather on the island, minimizing the chance of rainy days that can often spoil a vacation on the North Shore in the Winter. Don’t gamble with your precious vacation time. Choose the best of the best! We have it all here and all that is missing is you!

About Scott Worner

We have been vacationing in Kauai since 1995 and have been to all parts of the island. The Poipu Beach area quickly became our favorite spot. I am retired and do a fair amount of traveling. If you enjoy serious hiking, Kokee Park has some awesome trails on the South side of the Island, and in the North you will find the famous Kalalau Trail.

We have found the Poipu Sands complex to be very quiet. A good place to recharge your batteries.

Scott Worner purchased this condo in 2008

Why Scott Worner chose Poipu

We purchased the condo in Poipu Beach because it is our favorite area on the island. Poipu Beach has swimming, snorkeling, and surfing within walking distance. This area is often sunny when other parts of the island are not--especially in the winter months. Additionally Poipu Beach and Koloa town are about equi-distant from the south shore (Kokee Park) and the north shore (Princeville).

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the farmer's market on Monday afternoon and the Koloa Fish Market for fresh fish. Within easy walking distance are several great restaurants where you can get a 'special night out' meal or just a light snack. This year Kukui'ula Shopping Center opened with Bubbas (Hamburgers) and Merrimans Restaurant and Cafe, plus numerous shops. Walking along the coast area in the early morning or evening is very relaxing and good exercise. Additionally we enjoy having the pool and tennis court so close to the unit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Scott,

We had a fantastic stay. The accommodations were perfect for us. The location and proximity to Shipwrecks for surfing, and Poipu for snorkeling, surfing, boogie boarding, and beach, couldn't be beat. We loved the lanai being at the lawn. Traveled all over the island and always looked forward to that sweet spot we could call home. We hope to return to Kauai, and when we do we will be contacting you to stay there again.

Thanks again to you and Sarah. ( she was awesome) We will post a review on your site.

Beautiful property. Gorgeous condo with great view of Shipwreck Beach.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was spectacular! Beautifully decorated and was represented well on VRBO website. Had all of the necessities for island life. Short walk through Hyatt property to Shipwreck Beach. No air conditioning, but we didn't really need it. Nice restaurants in area were pricey $$$.

A beautiful condo in an amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our five day stay here. The condo is very nicely appointed and has everything you need to have a great time. There are not many places that you can sit on the patio and see both sunrise and sunset – amazing. The weather was perfect!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Poipu Sands 211 2 bed/2 bath condo with another couple. This condo was fully loaded with anything and everything you could ever imagine. I personally enjoy the local history books. The condo was updated with all the amenities. This home was beautifully decorated with a fully loaded lanai patio furniture. We loved being so close to the pool and just a short walk away from the ocean. We really enjoy the stocked kitchen and enjoyed cooking our own meals a few nights. I was very impressed with the beach supplies, flippers, snorkeling equipment, umbrellas and beach chairs. We truly enjoyed this nice condo as it felt like we were actually living in Kauai, not just visiting. We definitely plan to visit again and sure hope this same location will be available to us on the next visit. If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay while in Kauai, please consider this location. It was absolutely perfect.

Stay in Paradise - Poipu Sands 211

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautifully appointed 2 bedroom/2 bath condo in Poipu with another couple. The grounds are lovely, the lanai opens to a large grassy area with the pool beyond and then the gorgeous ocean. This condo has everything you need, it is stocked with quality china and glasses, along with plastic dishes and glasses to take outside on the lanai. Everything is in excellent repair, super clean and well decorated. We loved it! Take a walk to the ocean or over to the Hyatt for a drink at the tiki bar. Shipwreck beach is a short walk away and you can watch people jump off the cliff into the ocean. The condo also has beach chairs and snorkel gear that are available for your use. We will most definitely visit Kauai again. It was a wonderful trip!! Thanks so much for a memorable experience!

Splendid accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This year was our second visit to Poipu Sands #211. This condo is a top notch accommodation. Very clean, well maintained and equipped, along with lovely accents of local art and decor. Great views of Shipwreck Beach from the lanai and just steps from a very nice pool. The location is centrally located to many of the islands recreational offerings as well as walk-able distance to several dining options. The entire Poipu Kai Resort area is surrounded by accessible walking trails and routes so an early morning walk or run is quite a pleasure. Depending on your route, four miles is not out of the question.The lanai gets only a couple hours of direct sunlight in the late morning so it's comfortable throughout the day and catches the trade winds as well. One thing that stood out and reminded me of home was almost every light in the unit had a dimmer switch. Bonus!! We'll definitely stay here again.

Four sisters vacation

  • 5 of 5

I was on Kauai for 8 nights. I was a vacation for four sisters. I and one other sister stayed in this unit. It had was beautiful. Extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. It was on the ground floor and had a nice view with a great patio. Across from the pool. Easy walk to the beach and the Hyatt. Well equipped. My sister has health issues and it was so easy to acess. I could not have been happier. Hope to come back many times.
