Welcome to a bit of paradise! Ideal location. You will have easy and beautiful access to Poipu Beach. You will also have a lovely private key-entry pool between the condo and the beach. Your view is panoramic-- lovely landscaping, palm trees, blue water, distant green ridges and mountains!
This 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhome is 1800 square feet of elegance and beauty near the ocean and right on the expansive greenbelt in the privileged Manualoha section of the Resort at Poipu Kai .
The interior has been remodeled to create a wonderfully light and open space for your family to enjoy. A uniquely elegant and comfortable environment. Please see our photos.
Your light and airy home away from home, with full dining, kitchen and laundry conveniences. Fully equipped kitchen. High-end leather couches and large leather easy chair. Master suite features a custom bamboo king-size bed, walk-in closet, cable TV (flat screen) with DVD and VCR, private stereo system, and large covered lanai. The connected master bath includes glass block spa shower, tub, seated vanity area, and garden views. Equipment closet with bogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, etc. Linen closet with plenty of beach towels, etc.
The resort has spacious and lush tropical landscaped grounds and is one of Kauai’s lowest density resorts. Tennis courts (6), gated swimming pools (7), Jacuzzi spa, restaurant, and 24 hour security. No units above or below you contributes to the house-like relaxed environment. Watch the sunset through waving palm trees from the upper lanai.
On VRBO's "location map" the unit is just above the "d" in the label "Hoone Rd"and to the left of th "P" in Pee Road. This is a better locator than the street address, which shows the entry/upper end of the private Manaualoha driveway and we are the last unit on the right of the lower/ocean end of the driveway.
There is a lovely spacious grassy and landscaped open space in front, leading down to the private pool and beaches and across to the tennis facility. The gas grill is at the edge of the greenbelt about 30 feet from the lower lanai. It's really, truly an exceptionally beautiful location and environment. Those who know the area realize that it our unit very special-- we bought it after staying at many different units. It was by far the best combination of interior beauty and exterior location. As you can see from the many reviews, our guests have loved it. If you click on sort by reviews we are at or near the top for Poipu area rentals!
We wish you a warm Aloha and a memorable stay.

About Bob Venning
We first visited Poipu Kai in 1985. We stayed at a number of places oin Kauai and liked the Maunaloha section of Poipu Kai the most. We first saw our vacation home in 1999 at the invitation of the prior owner, and we rented it several times before we bought it. It is in the most spacious location of the most spacious condominium development, opening onto a lovely sweeping expanse of grass and tropical plantings, with a view of sunsets over Brennecke's Beach. (Our unit is close to the beach end of the large open area of the Poipu Kai resort shown on the Google map.) Our unit is truly a unique and exquisite environment. Very sincerely, Bob and Laura Venning

Why Bob Venning chose Poipu
The Manualoha section of Poipu Kai is easily the most open and spacious resort/condominium development in the Poipu area, with ample grass and lovely landscaping with bougainvillea, plumeria and other lovely tropical flowers. Our building has exceptionally broad exposures of grass and lovely landscaping leading to the nearby beach. It is unlike any other condominium development we have seen on Kauai, with its truly lovely plantings, finely maintained grounds and with seven tennis courts and ample swimming facilities. Golf nearby.
What makes this Condo unique
A few steps to the sparkling private pool for Manualoha residents and only a few more steps to the beach. We often stop off at the Manualoha pool after snorkeling at the beach-- a quick fresh water shower a dip, and a rest in a chaise lounge overlooking the beach. Then on to the condo, where the gas grill is conveniently outside the lower lanai and local fish and meats are ideal for grilling! condominium!

Serene, close to beach, lots of amenities
Within easy walking distance of family-friendly Poipu Beach (with snorkeling equipment rental shops and restaurants nearby), this property gives you two pools to choose from, both open from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM. For more swimming, boogie-boarding and snorkeling, Shipwreck Beach near the Hyatt and the public beach at the Sheraton are nearby but require a short drive. The owners are very accommodating and provide boogie boards, lawn chairs, beach towels aplenty, and boardgames to pass the time when it rains heavily, as it did during our recent stay. The kitchen and living space is up one flight of stairs (the two bedrooms and two full baths are on the lower level), which was not a problem for us but might be a consideration if someone has restricted mobility. The upstairs living area is open and airy with a fine view of the grounds and a peek of the ocean, and the original artwork on the walls is bright and colorful and reminds one of David Hockney. All in all, a lovely space of which the owners are justly proud.
Thank you for your very thoughtful and very nice review. We are most grateful.
Lovely condo, nice location for getting to the beach easily
We enjoyed our stay and the condo had all the amenities that we needed. Very quiet in the evenings, which we appreciated.
Thank you! We agree. Your Review gets to the heart of the matter.
Condo was nice the view not so much
We were supposed to get a rental car and we hat didn’t happen. We were so disappointed in the view. It was supposed to be overlooking the pool and seeing the ocean. Not it at all. My first and last HomeAway vacation.
This review is perplexing. We do not offer rental cars and never have. We are private owners, not a company with rental car facilities. Also, the pictures on the listing show clearly that the view from the upper lanai is of the water through palm tress and not directly overlooking the pool. We have never said the unit directly overlooks the pool. It is actually quieter not to be right over a pool. We called to discuss this but the renter hung up on us. We can only hope that this review will be understood as out of sync with the vast majority of our reviews.
It has all the amenities we wanted. It is very luxurious and comfortable. It is a great location !
We enjoyed very much our stay in this beautiful town house near the beach. The pool in the resort was nice to go swimming. The living spaces were large and the kitchen was good on preparing meals.
The master bath was large and can easily accomodate a couple. We plan to create me again in the near future.
Nicely furnished and well decorated. Beautiful paintings of Hawaii adorn the walls. Open and airy. Very clean. Super location to beach. Wonderful amenities such as pool and tennis courts.
Thanks! Great to have you as a guest!
Nice place by Brennecke’s
The owners are very thoughtful and had little notes everywhere. This is the perfect place for a couple and 2 kids. Right in Poipu Kai with a great location. Short walk to Brennecke’s and the beach. We had a minor issue with Internet but owner was super responsive and helped fix it. We have stayed in multiple locations in Poipu through HomeAway and this was the best experience of the 4 properties we’ve stayed in Poipu.
Thank you for saying that this was the best experience of your stays at Poipu! We rented it several times before buying it and had the very same reaction! Also, we appreciate being recognized for responsiveness. We genuinely want our guests to have a great time. Bob & Laura
