About the property

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

New for 2017 is air conditioining! Not just in the master BR but the whole condo. This is a perk rarely found at Poipu Shores, much less oceanfront condos in the Poipu area. All new living room furniture this year, too. This wonderful getaway 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.

About Patricia

Patricia and Tom live in Poipu, managing our Poipu Shores properties from on island.

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.

Return to Paradise Again!!

  • 5 of 5

Patricia and Tom gave us another beautiful vacation on Kauai!! Mahalo.

We had not stayed in #305 before . It was just as nice as our favorite #303. Simply beautiful and so comfortable. It was just like returning home. We look forward to our visit and just hate to leave each time. You could not ask for anything more for your vacation in Poipu... other than staying longer. We are already thinking about next October. Just hope we are able to come visit again. What could you do better? Nothing... how can you improve upon perfection!! Thanks again for another wonderful vacation on Kauai. All the best! Happy Holidays!!

Fantastic Ocean Front Views!

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying here! Unit is well furnished with all things necessary to prepare meals. Community BBQ is right downstairs. Lanai is just steps from the ocean and watching the turtles every morning and the occasional whale was great fun. Couldn't get enough of the pounding surf. Only negative is that bathroom areas of the unit are quite small. Some of the pans and kitchen tools are showing signs of wear and tear and need to be changed. Internet connection is pretty sporadic.

Poipu is very quiet with minor traffic and all the amenities needed as well as great access to island activities.

I would definitely recommend this unit!

Fabulous location, balcony & pool!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this condo in large part because of the location right on the shore, the swimming pool (which is just large enough to do laps in) and the large balcony overlooking the ocean... none of which disappointed!

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.
