Property description

Aloha. Welcome to a bit of paradise! Ideal location. Easy and beautiful access to Poipu Beach. Lovely private key-entry pool between the condo and the beach. This 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhome is 1800 square feet of interior elegance and external beauty near the ocean and right on the expansive greenbelt in the privileged Manualoha section of the Resort at Poipu Kai .

Enjoy the gorgeous ocean view sunsets, the gated ocean view pool, and boogie board at world-famous Brennecke’s Beach, just a few hundred feet of landscaped grounds directly down the greenbelt path from the lower lanai. Take a 2 minute walk along the beach to the protected swimming lagoon for kids, snorkeling for all, and surfing. Also, the resort's 6 tennis courts are directly across the wide greenbelt from our condo-- just a little more than 100 feet away.

The interior has been extensively remodeled to create a wonderfully light and open interior space. Please see our photos.

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 reviews, our guests have loved it.

A light and airy home away from home, with full dining, kitchen and laundry conveniences. Elegant kitchen and 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. 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.

( VRBO's "location map" shows location of postal address for all of Manualoha-- our unit is the beach-end unit on right hand side end of the long "driveway," for Manualoha's units, much closer to the ocean than map shows, and away from most of the resort accommodations other than the pools and tennis facitilty-- see our photos.)

We wish you a warm Aloha and a memorable stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
The Manualoha section of Poipu Kai is easily the most open and spacious development, with ample grass and our building has exceptionally broad exposures of grass and lovely landscaping leading to the beach. It is unlike any other condominium development we have seen on Kauai, with lovely plantings, finely maintained grounds and with seven tennis courts and ample swimming facilities. Golf nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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!
