About the Property

Condominium, Spacious one bedroom + two pull-out sofabeds, one Bath, sleeps 2-4)

The beautifully landscaped grounds of Poipu Kai Resort start at Brennecke's Beach, Kauai's top bodysurfing and boogie boarding beach. Next door to Brennecke's is the world famous Poipu Beach. A short walk in the opposite direction is Shipwreck Beach, where the Grand Hyatt is located. You can enjoy the amenities of a world class tropical hotel. Strolling back home from the beach through a beautiful greenbelt, you are greeted by majestic mountain views and a welcoming swimming pool. You are close to everything but can be at peace in the garden setting of our one bedroom with ample built-ins and with two pull-out sofas. At night you can still hear the surf. You are on the ground floor, so you can relax on the lanai or grass. Play tennis or go to the jacuzzi at Poipu Kai. You may not want to use your car at all. Just park it in our flower covered carport next to our unit.

Your rental fee also includes the owner's 'Insider's Guide'. The Insider's Guide has information that is not listed in the tour guide books; like information where the locals buy food, rent autos, when and were to golf, and where is the best side to sit in the plane when you are arriving and leaving.


Restaurant on the premises, and several other restaurants in 5 to 10 minute walking distance, including several at the Grand Hyatt.

Perfect for smaller families with children, retirees escaping the northern winters, or honeymooners!

This is a very spacious one bedroom condominium located in beautifully landscaped 70-acre grounds just across from Brennecke's beach. Poipu Kai is a luxury development, stretching from Poipu to Shipwreck Beaches, with a huge greenbelt, lush tropical landscaping, garden paths, pools, and tennis courts. Our unit is a short walk down the garden path to beaches, Grand Hyatt, shopping, restaurants; it is a large, nicely furnished cozy and ground floor unit with rear lanai/patio and garden. Aloha!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: This is a privately owned unit used primarily for family and friends. We'll share it with you when it is available! We've kept it for over 30 years because Poipu Beach is a very special place, one of the best beach resorts in the world.

Why the Owner Chose Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
The original owner, a family friend, traveled all over the Pacific and chose Poipu because he knew that Kauai was the best location in the Pacific, and Poipu the best on Kauai. He also personally knew the developer, who kept several units for his own family, who own two units to this day. The first building was developed as a family compound. Manualoha is the least dense development in Poipu Kai; the buildings look more like homes than condominiums and are low rise, one to three stories. We chose a one bedroom on the ground floor for accessibility. Unlike some other properties that are on rocky ground, Poipu Kai is a spacious and lush resort.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy the privacy, peacefulness and the spacious feeling of our unit. We love the pool, with a gorgeous view of Brennecke's Beach. And we love walking to the Hyatt to have lattes at the Seaview Lounge in the mornig, or sushi and martinis at Stevenson's Bar in the evening. We enjoy Hyatt luxury at a much lower price and with more privacy! For the adventurous outdoor types, Kauai has everything from kite surfing to kyaking to hiking the canyons. Kauai has some of the world's most beautiful beaches and best climates: it's never too hot or humid because of the refreshing trade winds that blow ashore. The water is clear blue, and warm. You can choose a beach with surf or calm waters. The snorkeling is sensational. We include our personal insider's guide to Kauai culled together over 30 years of traveling to Kauai.
