Sunsets are beautiful year round. Guests will enjoy the dramatic, heated, ocean-front pool. There are 2 covered barbecue areas, on-site parking, and elevator. On-site manager's office is open daily to assist guests.

The Perfect Penthouse on the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the penthouse two times and both were magical! It is perched on the 4th floor and the lanai is as close to the crashing waves as you can get in Poipu. We spent lots of time just watching the waves thunder onto the lava rocks, and the sea turtles swimming around. Sunsets are glorious, as are the frequent rainbows in the morning. The condo is beautifully decorated and furnished, sleeping 5 easily (we had 4 so there was lots of space), with 3 full baths. It is spacious and light-filled and comfortable. The kitchen includes everything you need as far as dishes, utensils and pots and pans, even a few coffee filters (we ran out) and a complimentary packet of coffee. If you plan on cooking meals here plan on bringing everything down to the salt and pepper because there are no leftovers from other renters. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the comfort and view here to make the short walk to the beach or pool (which is lovely!) but somehow we managed. We can't wait to visit again one day - can't imagine staying anywhere else in Poipu!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! It is the policy of our property management company that housekeepers remove all foods from the unit once a guest departs. With our location right on the water and the accompanying exposure to salt air and humidity, spices etc. do not survive very long or well anyhow. Also we must observe local health regulations. We suggest to our guests that they tuck a few of their favorite spices into ziplock bags and bring them in their luggage. Our housekeeping staff is happy to provide additional supplies such as filters if requested. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope you will visit us yet again.

Crashing waves, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five adults loved this condo. Tons of space, the master and bathroom were spectacular. Having three bathrooms was a luxury. Walkable to beaches, pool is beautiful - - overlooking the rock and waves. Third bedroom is an office and worked for one, but would have been cozy for two adults. Kitchen well equipped and beach chairs, towels and cooler provided. Owner was great to work with and quickly responded.

Breathtaking view overlooking the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Loved watching the whales off the deck two mornings and seeing daily the family of turtles lounging in the rocks below. Condo has great layout, beautifully decorated and was perfect for the five of us. Great location.

Phenomenal Views, Perfect Location in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a one week stay in the penthouse at Poipu Shores (406A). Our family of four (2 teens) LOVED the accommodations. What you see in the pics is exactly what you get. The views from the condo are absolutely spectacular. We loved watching the waves crash against the rocky shoreline. As we watched from the lanai, we saw turtles frolicking in the waves below every day of our vacation. The location of the condo on the south shore is ideal. It is just a 5 minute walk to Brennecke's beach and Poipu Beach Park. Boogie boards and beach chairs were provided in the condo. We made the trek several times daily to play in the ocean waves, have dinner at Brennecke's or to see the seals and sea turtles that would come onshore daily to warm/rest in the sun. If you walk 5 minutes in the opposite direction toward the Hyatt, you can hop on the Mahaulepu Trail for more spectacular ocean views on a walk, hike or morning run. Sunrise and sunsets from the condo cannot be beat. The pool was heated, warm and a nice place to just relax and listen to the waves crash below. Great restaurants and shopping are not a far drive away. Condo is well maintained and provides all the creature comforts of a home away from home.

Perfect Place for a Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 just finished our stay in 406A. I know people say its the best view in Poipu, but nothing will prepare you for this place. You are literally hanging over the ocean. We got up each morning and watched literally dozens of sea turtles feeding along the rocks, and watched an unbelievable display from the migrating whales every single day. The icing on the cake was the best location to enjoy the New Years fireworks from the comfort of our own place! This place had all of the comforts of home, easy to cook whatever we wanted etc.. Beds were all comfortable. the third bedroom is really for shorter people. My 17 year old son was a bit cramped. The main family room is huge, great TV, massive couch and a few very comfy chairs. Kitchen table was very large and no problem seating 8-10. The pool was very nice, just 2 feet from the ocean, and the grills worked very well. Perfect spot, worth every single penny. Owners could not have been more friendly, helpful, and responsive.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had an enjoyable stay, and that you had box seats to view from our lanai not only all the marine life, but also the great New Years Eve fireworks show. Your son must be really tall! On your next visit I would suggest that he pull out the trundle under the day bed and elevate it to the same height as the day bed. Then he would have had a big double bed. Thank you again for choosing our property for your holiday vacation.

Best view in Poipu!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting ocean front condos in Poipu for four years, and this one blew the other ones away! The 270 degree view of the coast and mountains is spectacular. Then there is the interior. High grade tasteful colors and finishes though out. Also the furnishings are first class. We and our guests loved this place and it is #1 on our list for next year. We enjoyed having the third bedroom/office. It served well for our 2 yr old grand daughter as a bedroom and our friend who was on a working vacation as an office. Also, the management and cleaning staff were friendly and professional.
