About the property

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

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.

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

Great Location, Great Place, Great Time

We really enjoyed our time at Pu'u Poa. We received a bit of rain during our stay, but it did not impact our trip in the slightest. The unit is beautiful, clean, and very well maintained. Pu'u Poa was ideally situated on the island for our family. We greatly enjoyed going to Hanalei Bay (the entire family learned to surf!), and appreciated the fact that we could walk to restaurants and multiple beaches from our temporary home. Overall, it was a great experience!

Relaxing, amazing Kauai vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience using Homeaway was made all the better by John and the wonderful Puu Poa condo. From booking through post-vacation follow up emails, John was a phenomenal host. Pictures are spot on, and the views are unparalleled. While there is no air conditioning- the ocean breezes keep everything cool and comfortable. Stargazing at night was an added treat. John's pre-arrival email and tips was a great way to start our trip, and we knew we were in good hands. Highly recommended.

Fantastic lodging and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this condo. The views were spectacular, and the lanai was large and spacious, perfect for relaxing. The condo had everything we needed for linens, kitchenware, and beach gear. We were a little worried about not having air conditioning during our stay at the end of June, but the breeze kept the condo nice and cool, so A/C wasn't needed at all.

The location was perfect, close to the grocery store, St. Regis, and great north shore sites. The walk down to Hideaways beach is so worth it--the beach is beautiful, secluded, and has excellent snorkeling.

We would absolutely stay again.

Wonderful quiet condo with a perfect ocean view and amenities

  • 5 of 5


Probably our best visit to the island in years. Puu Poa condo 37831 is the perfect location to relax and enjoy the Princeville, Kauai Island setting. With A+ amenities, helpful descriptions of the local events, restaurants and more. Very comfortable beds, furniture, patio furniture, convenient pool and a well equip kitchen. Walking distance to the St. Regis Princeville Resort and a short 2 mile walk to local restaurants and stores.

We’re already planning to return next year and enjoy this perfect island getaway!!!! 

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at John's Puu Poa home, and were very happy with the unit. It was very clean, had fantastic views, and was stocked with everything we needed, from laundry detergent to beach towels. All we had to do was buy some food and we were good to go. We really enjoyed sleeping with the sliding doors open and hearing the ocean at night, and were particularly impressed with how well maintained the space was. Hideaway beach was a short distance away, and while it was a bit tricky navigating the path down to it, it quickly became one of our most favorite beaches on the whole island.
