Clean, tidy and conveniently located.

  • 4 of 5

The view isn't what I expected as it does not have a sea view. However it was very close to poipu beach. It was clean and well looked after. Aircon was on top of any rental price so make s note! The owners were very responsive to any email and happy to be of help once we were there. Overall a positive stay. Thanks Philip! Much appreciated.

Beautiful condo with some caveats

  • 3 of 5

We had very high hopes for this place based on the advertisement but ended up a bit disappointed. We arrived at 10:30 at night once the exterior temperature had cooled from the daytime high and it was quite pleasant outside. Upon entry to the condo we were shocked at the heat in spite of all the windows open and ceiling and floor fans all operating. It made for a sweltering night especially for my 5-1/2 month pregnant wife who barely was able to sleep. We blew fans directly on us but they were only circulating hot cool breeze. The next morning it was obvious by the large hedges on both sides why there was little natural airflow thru the windows.

The next morning I inquired about the A/C that was noted to be available in the description. The owners were able to install the freestanding unit the same afternoon. Unfortunately it only kept up with the living room which never dropped below 80 in the daytime and barely provided any cooling to the bedrooms in spite of using fans to direct airflow. We ended up sleeping all three of us in the living room a couple of nights due to the bedrooms still being too hot. All of that and the owners charged an additional cost/night for the A/C which wasn't disclosed in the property description or even when we spoke with them about installing it. The fee only was disclosed via text after they had already agreed to come to install the A/C. Owners wanted cash left for them but gave us short notice, although they were accommodating when we told them that we were on another area of the island and they picked up the cash the next day.

Our trip was in July. I would not recommend this place for the summer months due to the lack of airflow thru the windows. It might be ok for winter/spring.

Here are the pros and cons that we found.


Beautifully decorated inside

Lots of ceiling and floor fans

The location is great - very short walk to the beach

Grill available on property

Owners were accommodating with our schedule even tho we needed one night less than the minimum.

Close to Poipu shopping and restaurants - w/drive to most of them tho.


VERY warm/hot with surprisingly almost no natural air circulation even with trade winds blowing

Hidden cost/night for A/C not disclosed in property description

Exterior building condition is decent, not fancy, but a lot of spiderwebs, and insects, etc in parking area made it feel unclean

Pay-type common laundry
