The Penthouse at Poipu Shores is the corner unit on the top floor, and is only a few feet from the ocean. Originally built for the developer, it is the largest condo at Poipu Shores (2200 square feet). Glass-walled, it indisputably has the most spectacular view of any property on the south shore - a 270 degree sweeping panorama of the southern coastline extending to the west, Niihau, and the central mountains, Mt. Kahili and Mount Wai'ale'ale.. The condo was completely remodeled and rebuilt in 2009 and is extremely well-maintained.. The living room has a big screen HDTV, Blu-ray DVD player, and central stereo system with iPod and MP3 connections. Each bedroom has both ceiling fans and A/C (see note in Property Description), HDTV, and wireless and hard wired free high speed internet access. The living room and the master bedroom open to the 40 foot long lanai overlooking the ocean crashing on rocks below - a perfect vantage point for spotting sea turtles, dolphins, whales, monk seals and, on occasion, manta rays. 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.
MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY 6 GUESTS: Because of the privacy, ambiance, and amenities, this unit is a wonderful choice for a honeymoon, anniversary, or birthday celebration, or just as a getaway to completely relax and enjoy beautiful Kauai. Two couples sharing this condo will be delighted with the spaciousness. Dinner on the lanai at sunset is the best dining experience on the island.
One infant under age 12 months using a crib may be permissible with 6 adults.

Great place to stay
Great location and staff was awesome in helping me figure out some traveling problems. They went out of their way to help which I’ve never had before with other rental properties.
Penthouse at Popui Shores---What a grand place!
Our family just returned from spending 7 seven nights in paradise. We cannot wait to return. The Penthouse was everything and more that we hoped for on our favorite island. The amenities, location and recommendations from the owner were fabulous! To sleep listening to the pounding surf, watching the whales off shore, surrounded by sea turtles and enjoying the antics of the dolphins was delightful. If you are considering a family vacation spot this is the best location. The owner was wonderful to work with and she provided suggestions to enhance our vacation. The beaches, restaurants and tourist attractions are exceptional!! We will return.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed our Penthouse and I enjoyed communicating with you prior to and throughout your stay. We very much look forward to having you visit us again.
Best Family Vacation
My family and I just returned from a week in Kauai staying at this beautiful condo. It's the perfect location, with plenty of space for 5 adults, and a lanai that was extra special. We'd sit outside and enjoy the huge waves, the sea turtles, dolphins, the night sky, and good conversation. I can confirm that they are spinner dolphins because they would jump out of the water and spin. We had everything we needed to completely relax and have quality family time. The condo itself was a highlight for all of us on this trip which included hiking to and swimming under a waterfall, seeing Hanalei Bay and Waimea Canyon, plus doing some of the best snorkeling my husband has ever done at Tunnels Beach.
When we landed, we stopped first at the Walmart in Lihue and stocked up on groceries for the week. That made breakfast easy to have at the condo. Then we ventured out each day to explore Kauai. We've been now to the 4 main Hawaiian islands and Kauai is now our favorite. It's quiet, beautiful and let us all run away from our normal, busy lives. The A/C in the bedrooms took the edge off of the daily heat and humidity and we all slept great to the sounds of crashing waves.
The star of the show was the beach inlet. We would try and guess which wave or swell would cause the wave to crash 30 feet high. It's felt like our own personal show put on by the ocean.
Thanks for opening your home. It was our best family vacation ever!
This condo was fantastic, spacious, beautifully decorated and the view, can't begin to describe it. There were 5 of us and we all had so much elbow room. Having A/C in the bedrooms was an added bonus, can't find many places on Kauai with that feature. Many thanks for 8 wonderful days!
Great spot, location, and view!
Very nice condo. Great value. Only thing I would suggest is be clear to suggest to guests they consider requesting the AC be turned on BEFORE they arrive since the office can't turn it on in a given day after 4:30 PM. Could also use better amenities in the kitchen. Would absolutely return, though! Office was very responsive to our needs, and condo is beautiful with a great view.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our property.
Since we maintain a very well equipped kitchen-and that remark has been made in several reviews - I am guessing that the comment "better kitchen amenities" is referring to items such as herbs, spices, and even perhaps condiments. Unfortunately we are not permitted to leave any foods in the unit. When a guest departs our housekeepers are directed to remove everything left behind in the kitchen. Our staff is allowed to take what they would like and the rest is donated to a local Food Bank. We suggest to our incoming guests that they pack a small amount of spices they enjoy using into small baggies and bring them along.
We hope you will visit us again.
Crashing waves, beautiful view
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.
The Penthouse at Poipu Shores is on the sunny south shore of Kauai on a rocky point only a few feet from crashing waves. A 5 minute walk west along the coastline brings you to Brennecke Beach and Poipu Beach Park where there are swimming, snorkeling, surfing and body-boarding. There are 4 major hotels and many restaurants and shops nearby, all within walking distance. Championship golf courses, tennis courts, and surfing beaches are all very close.
Other Activities: ziplining, kayaking, sightseeing, photography
