Pu'u Poa 406, A Spectacular Oceanfront Luxury Penthouse Condo

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enter through the carved glass doors to the first of our two lanais and breathtaking views of the mighty Pacific. From the atrium entry of PUU POA 406, the tropical decor of our newly decorated and furnished family room beckons to a larger second lanai with upscale gas grill and gorgeous sunset views from our famous Hideaways Beach to Bali Hai.

Open wide the sliding glass doors of the master bedroom and sleep to the lullaby of crashing waves. From the moment you arrive, to your final swim in our heated pool, your unforgettable stay in our expansively equipped penthouse condo will be one of luxury, peacefulness and romance. Welcome to Meli Makai - OceansSong at Pu'u Po'a - Kauai's premier condominium complex!

This luxurious two bedroom, two bath penthouse unit is one-of-a-kind. The main bedroom of this spacious, 1500 square foot condominium (2200 square foot including the two large lanais), is en-suite with large bathroom, with romantic 'his and her' twin showers, and a relaxing Oriental-style soaking tub. The second bedroom, which has a great view of the mountains and waterfalls, has a queen-size bed. Both the master and the guest bedroom beds have plush, new, custom-made Island Dreams pillow-top mattresses.

Located on the top floor of prestigious PU'U PO'A, this end unit has spectacular views of the reefs and surf from its two lanais (see pictures), from the main bedroom, and living room, and from the kitchen and dining room.

Elegantly refurnished and redecorated, all of the appliances are new and the kitchen is completely outfitted with microwave, stove, oven, blender, etc. There is also a new washer and dryer. The large family room has cathedral ceilings, cable TV, DVD/VCR player, IPOD Docking station, CD player, and high-speed DSL Internet access for your laptop. There is a second cable TV in the main bedroom.

In a quiet, end-of-the-road setting, PU'U PO'A is a solid concrete building, with magnificently maintained tropical gardens, and a pool and tennis court on the property. Because of its top-floor location and concrete construction, there is little noise from neighboring units. Our holiday home is a cliff-edge unit with magnificent close up views of whales, surfers, and sunset views of Bali Hai.

The complex is right above and a short path from a secluded beach called 'Hide-Away's' which has exceptional snorkeling over shallow, bountiful reefs (see pictures). PU'U PO'A Beach is just a three minute walk from our condominium in front of the Princeville Resort.

Princeville Resort has many amenities including a spa for pampering. Winter brings the whales into your panoramic views of the ocean and the high surf attracts world class surfer 'dudes' daily. Princeville is renowned for its beautiful golf courses and nearby rustic Hanalei has great dining and shopping.

Relax to the sounds of the surf and enjoy a romantic sunset with panoramic views of Bali Hai from our two lanais.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We'd go back to Puu Poa 406 in a heartbeat.

You know you're in a great spot when the view out the back window (mountains; palm trees's; golf course) is almost as great as the majestic ocean views as seen from three different angles from the kitchen/dining room. The photos on vrbo don't reveal the great ocean views from the DR window. The lanais (two of them) are huge and both are positioned to capture some amazing sunsets. The design of the unit was pure genius as you face the sunsets but catch every bit of the evening breeze which had me reaching for more cover on most nights. And, although the unit is on the fourth floor you have only a story and a half of stairs to climb due to the elevation difference between the property entry and the ocean side.

It appeared the unit has been renovated recently as we saw lots of granite and new cabinets. We enjoyed the soaker tub in the evenings and all the appliances and fixtures functioned properly.

The owners have clearly worked hard to make their spacious and beautifully decorated island home both attractive and comfortable. Air conditioning would have been a real plus in the late afternoons when the sun found the west facing windows but, other than those few hours in the late afternoon the temperature in the unit was comfortable. All things considered, #406 is a great value as comparable units on Maui would rent for roughly twice as much.

The Puu Poa complex is perfectly located in the up-scale area of Princeville and only five minutes or so from a Foodland grocery store and only ten or so minutes from Hanalei Town. The grounds on the unit are well maintained and provided a beautiful setting for two weddings during the eight days we spent there.

We loved our stay at Puu Poa #406 and will think of it as our home base next time we're blessed to make it back to Kauai.

Amazing week at Pu'u Poa #406

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with 2 friends just recently returned from a week in Kauai. While there we had the priviledge of staying in Pu'u Poa #406. Truthfully the beauty that surrounds you as you look out from the lunai is simply breath-taking beyond all words..from sunrise to sunset the horizon is ever changing and one is spellbound by the beauty of it all. This condo is well decorated, quiet, relaxing, and equipped with everything you could possibly want plus it's easy to find and located close to beaches and wonderful little towns. If you enjoy a good cup of coffee after your morning walk you can stroll over to the Princeville Resort and sit on their balconey and overlook the Hanalei Bay. We've traveled the world and have never found a better deal for our money.

Gorgeous view from lanai!

  • 3 of 5

Great location near terrific snorkeling (Hideaway) beach. On the 4th (top) floor of the building was great for the view and for the exercise as there isn't an elevator! It was hot and there is NO A/C so we requested a free-standing fan as the ceiling fan was pretty worthless. The management company brought one promptly and that helped. Only 3 stars because condo lacks a good supply of dishes, needs better fans and more effective sun block shades on the windows.Only 4 of us there, but needed to wash daily to have enough coffee cups and bowls, plates, etc for breakfast and lunch. Refrigerator door gets stuck open and warms up contents. Afternoon sun pours in main windows but there are only signs of past curtains or shades - nothing currently there to black sun. Did I mention it was hot even though it was May??

Fabulous condo and surrounding amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is almost perfect - large, airy (two big lanais), well equipped, quiet, great master bedroom/bathroom, and just a brief (if steep) hike down to one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. There are no shared walls and being on the top floor we never heard our neighbors which added to the peaceful ambiance. We visited with our two adult daughters and the condo, fabulous weather, and North Shore outdoor activities (hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, etc.) made it a very special trip. My only slight complaint is that the mattress in the master suite is showing its age and I would love to see a new one in place on our next visit. Still, highly recommended!

Pu'u Poa Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo has extreme serenity in every corner. Between the mountain views/ breezes and dolphin sightings off the lanai, there was always something to sweep the stress away. The kitchen is well stocked (even with spices) and has all the necessary amenities to feel comfortable. There is a wonderful walkable snorkel beach but is close to many others by car. This condo is extremely private! We only saw other guests once. We will definitely return soon for tranquility, beauty and rest.

Beautiful Princeville Condo

  • 5 of 5

This top floor condo in Princeville is spacious, spotless, comfortable, quiet, has everything you need, and views to die for. The kitchen is very complete. There is a great starter kit of kitchen supplies that easily lasted us a week. Plenty of towels and beach towels as well. A cool breeze flows through in the evening with the sound of the surf in the background. Princeville center and shopping are 10 minutes away. The only drawback for us, not associated with the condo, was the short path down to Hideaways Beach. We found it rather difficult and only did it only once. Once you get there, the little beach is gorgeous and the snorkeling great. A wonderful stay. Thank you Oceanfront Realty!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments. Yes, the path to beautiful Hideaways is very difficult and does belong to the County of Kauai and not our complex. They are responsible for it's maintenance. We are, however, so glad that you were able to enjoy it and welcome you back anytime. Many thanks again, Noel and Erica Tyler [ owners]

Amazing condo - the best we have ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

Wow is pretty much all I can say. When we walked into the condo the first time we were really speechless at just how nice everything was. The condo was just beautiful. Everything in it done well - they did not decorate or furnish this condo on the cheap for renters - it really felt like they owners were sharing their very well cared for vacation home with us. The area was just so beautiful and we WILL BE BACK. LOVED LOVED LOVED this rental.
