About the property

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

Our wonderful 305A had another major remodel late 2014. New kitchen includes the works: cabinets with banana leave pulls, wraparound granite counters, new appliances, oversized sink and modern glass tile backs plashes. The bedrooms both got new carpeting. New top of line front loading washer / dryer combo installed under fancy granite topped laundry area. Guest bedroom received a huge plantation shutter for elegance and privacy. The condo features solid wood and bamboo furnishings, sea grass and slate flooring with designer details like vessels sinks in the bathrooms and bamboo finishes. Two separate suites can accommodate a family of four or two couples with privacy for all. The master bedroom has stunning ocean views with a California king sized bed and a bathroom featuring slate and glass block. The garden side guest bedroom has two twin beds which can be made into a comfortable king bed (please let us know which configuration you prefer). While the garden side guest bedroom doesn't have an ocean view, the tropical bird songs from the garden area are lovely. Both bathrooms are 'in-suite' for maximum privacy. The unit has a fully equipped kitchen with an adjacent dining area with seating for 6 people at the dining table and seating for 2 at the kitchen bar. A full sized washer and dryer complete the amenities for this unit.

This two bedroom condo is larger than most units in this complex and boasts an extra large lanai which will become your favorite place to just relax on your Kauai vacation. No painting could recreate the drama of the views from Poipu Shores and especially from Unit 305A. Sunsets from the lanai give an incredible vista along the dramatic Poipu coastline all the way to Niihau, the 'Forbidden Island' in the distance. Watch the turtles, dolphins, whales, local outrigger canoes and sailboats from the lanai while you enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

We are world travelers and know what savvy people are looking for when then stay in a tropical condo.

Patricia purchased this condo in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

305A at Poipu Shores was our home for nine days in April. We were joined by

our son and his very good friend on this trip. I spent quite a bit of time on the internet

choosing 305A and was pleased to see that it was everything we had wanted. The unit

is on the ocean and a couple of stories up. The views are spectacular ranging from unbelievable

sunsets to a giant double rainbow on our last day. The accommodations are quite nice and

very comfortable. If you want to spend some time at giant/busy hotel resorts Poipu Shores is

nicely located in between and far enough from the Hyatt and the Marriott. We are planning to

return to Kauai and 305A next year.

It was great to meet Patricia. We appreciated the personal touch.

Well Equipped, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We chose this 2 bedroom condo to call home base because it was within walking distance to Poipu Beach (nice for swimming, snorkeling) and being on the sunny side. Truly the location is great unless you plan to spend lots of time on the north side hiking Hanakapiai beach/falls, snorkeling Kee and Tunnels, or taking a boat ride to see the Napali coast. These places are all drivable in 1.5 hours, however, so it is still do-able. The condo itself was well appointed, better stocked than most with a full kitchen down to a plastic pitcher and nice knives, boogie boards, paper towels, tin foil, dish and laundry detergent, and shampoo/conditioner. Super great. We knew it was not air conditioned, but did find it to be a bit warm in late June/early July, though not unbearable. My husband had to go buy ear plugs because with the windows open, we were not prepared to the boom of the crashing surf (not gentle waves). And with windows opened for air circulation, you can hear everyone around you, from loud toddlers in the morning to folks rolling baggage late at night. Still, we loved the pool (though strange you need a key get OUT) and lack of people unlike Waikiki craziness. The owners were super helpful as well. Really loved the sunsets and watching the sea turtles by the pool! Next time we would plan for more lounge time.

Paradise within Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Poipu Shores, but it will definitely not be our last. This condo has the best lanai with expansive ocean views with sea turtles (honu) swimming below. The pool was also steps away from the front door. In addition, the one bedroom was perfect for a couple looking for a relaxing vacation. Every morning, we would brew up some Hawaiian coffee and have a cup while looking down at the sea turtles doing their thing down below. Inside the condo, it was very clean and furnishings were nice. The waves crashing on the rocks was constant and very relaxing. The condo is also walking distance to Poipu Beach which is very convenient. It is the best location with the best view. We would highly recommend this property, and we will be back.

Paradise in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this unit and we cannot say enough good things about it! The location is pristine. You cannot find a better oceanfront view on the island - and all from the lanai! The unit is clean, comfortable, updated and fully stocked. The management team is a dream to work with. The pool is beautiful and you can see the sea turtles swimming and eating in the ocean from the pool deck. We would highly recommend this property to all our friends and family!

Needs updating

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful location right on the ocean with wonderful sunsets and close to Poipu Beach and shops/restaurants. Furniture both on the patio and inside were old and nasty and definitely needs some updating except for the kitchen. Patio furniture is not what is shown in the pictures. Minimal cable TV stations available. We won't be back

Best location EVER!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay here at Poipu Shores. We are surrounded by beauty, beaches and golf. Evenings on the lanai are our favorites. The condo is clean and well stocked with everything we need. The beds and furniture are comfortable, and the unit is light and airy. Just what you would expect for a tropical holiday. The hosts are very helpful with recommendations and assistance. Can't say enough! We'll be back!!!

Perfect spot to enjoy bit of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year staying at this complex, and by far, this unit was the best in terms of being updated, clean, and great location in the complex, and being able to enjoy spectacular sunsets. We stayed 16 days, and we were more than pleased with what was provided for in the kitchen, washer and dryer, linens, etc. The heated salt water pool was a daily retreat, and a great place to relax and unwind or watch the turtles or crashing waves from the ocean side location. The new friends we met, as well as the regulars we have gotten to know, was a real plus too. We will definitely be back, and it was a trip we will never forget!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind nd thoughtful review. We love it when Kauai and Poipu regulars have such lovely things to say. Poipu Shores is a special place and this condo in particular, one that we personally owned for 14 years until November has a special place in our hearts also. It was thoughtful of you to take your time to write this precious review. Mahalo nui loa!
