About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Read our latest reviews and see what we have to offer. As on island residents we take pride in our vacation home and strive to make your vacation holiday memorable.

We are one of the few (if not only) Puu Poa residences with designer furniture throughout. We do not just select any condo rental package, these selections are high end designer made pieces anyone would love to have in their own home (think McGuire).

All furniture was selected from from C.S. Woo, Honolulu, or Aspire, the premier providers of high end furnishings. We also had new HORIZONS Blinds installed on all bedroom windows, added accent pieces throughout, and one very LARGE custom designed area rug for the living room. It gets better, with recent improvements to the bathrooms including cherry cabinetry, slab Italian Calacutta Marble counters, Hansgrohe fixtures, and Toto toilets.

As always we are excited to provide a superior option for your vacation dollar. Call for last minute special rates or for price matching to other Puu Poa units.

Our Pu'u Poa residence is a luxurious two-bedroom oceanfront condominium with large windows and generous lanais from which to enjoy spectacular whitewater views. With elegant interiors and the most modern conveniences, you can enjoy a uniquely designed and decorated home, along with the personal touches you expect.

At nearly 2000 square feet (interior and lanais), this condominium is furnished to reflect the island’s casual yet elegant atmosphere. The fully-equipped kitchen has recently been updated with new cabinetry, granite counters, and appliances. Mattresses are top of the line, with Italian Estate Sateen sheets. Baths have Egyptian Cotton towels and we have provided plush spa robes for your use while a guest. Laundry options include a full-sized Samsung front loading washer and dryer.

We provide the same amenities (towels, sheets, shampoo, soaps) in our condo which we use in our home.

Art and island décor selected during travels throughout Hawaii and the Pacific Rim are displayed to ensure your vacation will be memorable and spectacular. For those with technical needs, two high speed (secured) Internet options are available for contact with the rest of the world.

Just below Pu’u Poa is “Hideaways Beach”. You can hike down a short, but steep, trail to the base of the ocean bluff and find this secluded beach with unparalleled views of Bali Hai.

Spectacular diving and coral reef snorkeling is found in these parts as the gentle waves provide for a host of coral and marine life unsustainable in other parts of the world.

Having the five-star St. Regis Hotel as your ‘out-of-sight’ neighbor allows you to easily enjoy shopping, island activities, and world-class dining in three gourmet restaurants, each offering a variety of island flavors along with magnificent views. Not to be missed are the sunsets from the 'Living Room' bar. Pamper yourself with award-winning spa treatments in the newly built Princeville Spa, enjoy an elegant romantic dinner at one of many five star restaurants, and end your day with a quiet moment, feeling the ocean breeze, back on your private lanai.

Location, attention to detail, and quality, combine to make this the perfect vacation choice for your discriminating lifestyle.

Features include:

* Samsung 50" LED HDTV in living room

* Two bedrooms - One king bed and one queen bed. The master bedroom overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the second bedroom has a view of the Makaleha Mountains.

* Living room with oceanview, and the sound of crashing waves.

* Full kitchen with granite counter tops, new appliances, gourmet cookware, and oceanview.

* Keurig coffee maker

* Spacious lanai with new outdoor furniture and yet more oceanviews, Bali Hai views, and the sound of crashing waves.

* Two full baths with all new tile and fixtures - master bath includes spray shower head and a Japanese soaking tub.

* Washer and dryer.

* BOSE Wavesound radio, CD player, and Ipod docking station

* IPhone/IPOD/IPAD docking station with alarm clock in master bedroom

* Luxurious designer linens - Tommy Bahama, Hotel Collection, Calvin Klein, Barbara Barry

* COMPLIMENTARY LONG DISTANCE PHONE CALLS TO THE U.S. MAINLAND

Our cancellation policy is you will receive a 100 percent refund for all reservations cancelled within 90 days of arrival - less credit card processing fees and any other VRBO fees that the owner is charged. This policy supersedes any other listed policy in this listing. Unfortunately the HomeAway system does not offer in their listing setup a 90 day option, so you will see a 60 day cutoff. Again, that is NOT our policy.

Ask about last minute rates!!

About John Ski

After searching each island for our retirement home, we found a location that offers natural beauty, relaxation, and aloha spirit not found on other islands. We now spend half of the year at Hale Malanai experiencing all Kauai offers.

John Ski purchased this condo in 2002

Why John Ski chose North Shore

Puu Poa, is near some of the best beaches on kauai and in a location that offers our guests access to amenities of the St. Regis Hotel and Princeville community. Coupled with the luxury of this home, we have an unbeatable vacation opportunity.

What makes this condo unique

Best beaches, world class golf, natural beauty, and peacefulness, you will never want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha from Maryland. We stayed a month at Puu Poa 203. First of all John is extremely easy to work with, but professional as well. All questions are answered usually within minutes. He gives you accurate good pricing right away. And the advantage to working directly with the owner are all the extras….the fully equipped closet with outdoor equipment, the fully stocked kitchen, the guidebooks and library of books, and the original artwork. Everything you see on the website is accurate…in person we found it even better and prettier. We knew we wanted the Puu Poa complex because of its location, its solid construction, and the layout of the units. We were even more impressed when we got there. From the semi-private entrance (only 2 per floor share a large entrance area) you will smell the beautiful gardens as you cross to the unit. We preferred having 2 open lanais (as contrasted with the glass covered lanais), as we wanted the light, sound and the full ocean view from both. We also preferred our second floor unit as it was only 8 steps down from the parking lot and we did not look down on anyone, just green, water, surfers and whales. As a vacation rental this was extremely clean, generous in size and fully appointed. The beds are VERY comfy and the master shower is perfect for Hawaii – open and airy. Cell phones get spotty coverage so John’s unlimited mainland calling plan worked well as did the internet. We were in the unit when the new living room furniture arrived. NICE. It’s very clear that John takes great pride in his unit and is constantly upgrading features. We would not hesitate to book with him again. Mahalo

Beautiful property with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We visited Princeville for my daughter's wedding at the St. Regis. The location was perfect. The condo is equipped with everything you need for a fantastic vacation! There is no A/C, but the ceiling fans and trade winds do a good job of cooling the condo.

Incredible Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo in July 2017 with a friend for 7 nights and we could not have been happier. First, I have been to Kauai 3 times, and have always stayed in the Princeville area, but this was by far the best location (more info on why below). The owner, John, is incredibly nice and responsive. This adds a lot to your stay knowing he is there if needed. The unit is very well appointed (super comfortable beds, ceiling fans, comfy furniture inside and on the lanai - all high-end). And there are fantastic Tommy Bahama beach chairs that are super comfortable and double as backpacks and coolers (how perfect is that?). These made our trips to Tunnels and Anini Beaches super easy and comfortable. The ocean view is tranquil and beautiful with no obstructions, and you have decent privacy on the two lanais due to the staggered nature of the building. All kitchen appliances, utensils and tools are also high-end. The master bedroom is really roomy and allows you to fall asleep to the ocean sounds down below the bluff. Not too loud or too distant. Parking is also great. For me the location was A+ because my favorite beach, Hideaways, is right below the condo complex. Granted the trail is not easy to navigate, but for the average adult and child over 7 it is totally doable. You can also walk to Pu'u Poa beach at the St. Regis which is right next door. These are the two best beaches in Princeville in my opinion and you never have to get into a car to go to them, or walk a mile in the heat! That's the prize. If you prefer to soak in a mountain view from Princeville, which is one of most spectacular offered on the entire planet, this might not be your place. The second bedroom is smaller and does not face the ocean, but it has a view of the mountains. We also found the condo complex to be quiet with other guests being respectful of quiet hours from 10PM-8AM. A 2-minute flat walk to the bluff adjacent to the St. Regis is where to go for the full sunset experience. I could go on, but will leave if at that!

Stunning view and lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

Our second time staying in Puu Poa. This condo beautifully furnished with careful consideration given to making visitors stay comfortable. Great location close to St Regis for sunset drinks and beach access and stunning Makai Golf Course. Beautifully relaxing venue where you can sit on the balcony and watch the sea and sky change. Also a perfect location to be active and explore the North Shore of Kauai.

Great place great location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, tidy and modern. Large outdoor areas to relax in. 5 minute walk to one of the loveliest secluded beaches on Kauai, don't let other reviews about the track put you off, it had poured down the night before and the track although a bit muddy was very easy to get up and down. Would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Kauai.

Fantastic Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have visited most of the main islands but this was our first trip to Kauai and all we can say is WOW! This rental at Puu Poa was absolutely fantastic!!! The views from both private lanai's are stunning and pictures don't do justice. The entire unit was spotless upon our arrival. We really appreciated the higher end designer furniture throughout the unit as well as extra appointments. Both beds were extremely comfortable and we slept so well while there. The owners have thought of everything even including a closet full of boogie boards, several sets of snorkel gear, beach umbrella's and several coolers. Made beach outings so easy as we didn't have to rent equipment. Would recommend a trip down to the beach below the complex. It's a challenging hike if the path is wet but so worth it. Spent a whole afternoon there and watched the sun set..a truly perfect Corona moment..so cool!! This unit is within 15-20 minutes of Hanalei (cool town) and all the incredible beach's along Kuhio Hwy which are a must. The owners are great to work with and we will definitely consider this rental on our next trip to paradise!!! Thanks John and Jacqui!!
