Living and Dining

Colorful décor with natural elements work to create a refined environment for when you are back “home” from exploring the delights of the Garden Island. It will be hard to shift your eyes from the mesmerizing ocean drama from the lanai, but there is a 42' flat screen plasma tv if you need to confirm that the other world still exists. Plug in your own tunes on the Sony home theater and know that life is good. Of course, free wireless internet for your use. Dining in is easy, comfortable and the views are far better than most restaurants. The gas BBQ grills make that fresh island catch even more tasty.

Quality GE Profile appliances are top of the line. Your morning tea, coffee or juice never tasted so good while sitting on the lanai enjoying dolphins, giant sea turtles and (in season) the humpback whale migration. End the day with your own concoction, sunset will be beautiful from your own “best seat in the house.” Reservations required!

About Patricia Biehn

I love my job! There is nothing better than talking to my guests about a wonderful stay on Kauai, oceanfront in one of my condos. We have owned up to 5 condos on Kauai and we love Poipu Shores. I understand that a trip to Kauai may be the trip of a lifetime and I will do everything I can to make every part of that dream come true. We are the property managers of this condo, six others at Poipu SHores and two at Sunset Kahili!

Why Patricia Biehn chose Poipu

Poipu Shores is a very special location, a bit hidden from plain sight, away from the road and noise and fully oceanfront. Nothing between you and the ocean. The views are nothing less than breathtaking. A small boutique complex with only 39 condos in 3 oceanfront buildings. Our heated oceanfront pool is the envy of most condos on the south shore.

What makes this condo unique

No restaurant has better views for your morning coffee or evening beverage. See whales in season and daily sightings of turtles and dolphins. Vies all along the Poipu shoreline to the island of Niihau. Palms frame your view from #303A

Great view

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in fine shape. We could tell that the owner cared. What made the unit great was the view from the lanai, with ocean waves crashing on the lava rocks right below. Lots of whale sightings too. Well managed unit by Pat and Tom.

Fantastic Views- great location

  • 3 of 5

We rented at Poipu Shores 303 a over the Xmas Holidays and the New Year. The location on the South Shore is terrific as you can access everything on the island from this location. The view is spectacular and you get a very expansive view of the South Shore from the condo's deck enabling you to see whales and dolphins right from your deck! The pool area is quite nice and the pool also offers an expansive view.

The property managers (Tom and Patricia) were very responsive to all of our needs prior to our arrival at

Poipu Shores and kept in touch with us during our stay. We did pay a significant premium to stay here so we did want to make viewers aware of some issues that certainly should not happen in a premium property.

Our "average rating" was due to these circumstances. We have rented 7 times through VRBO over the years (all over the world) and we have largely experienced exceptional circumstances. This is the first time we have provided a review somewhat below this.

The Master Shower was inoperable when we arrived and I needed to jerry rig a solution so that my wife and I could use it. The toilet in the Master was also not working correctly and the ice dispenser in the fridge was not working.

Additionally the location does charge you a cleaning fee and we were disappointed in how dirty and dusty the condo was on arrival. My wife (who has allergies) was sneezing quite a bit during our stay as the dust was significant. We did our best to clean it up but we shouldn't have to!

Be aware that this complex does not have any AC so it does get quite warm in the unit through the day. Additionally we found the surf to be quite violent hitting the stone wall at night (I am sure pretty common in the winter season) which required us to close the windows at night (due to the noise) which made the condo even warmer. If you rent this unit in the summer be aware that the Master Bedroom in the condo will be quite warm at night.

Exceptional Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was recommended to us and we were not disappointed, in fact, we were thrilled. Its location is nothing short of spectacular and the views and amenities are wonderful. It is very comprehensively equipped for an active and comfortable stay; recreational equipment, games, a well-stocked kitchen, which makes eating on the lovely lanai so easy and delightful, and a beautifully designed and maintained unit made our stay one we would love to repeat.

Ok

  • 3 of 5

The view was amazing, but was disappointed with the showers, both of them had black mould and the bottom rails were dirty. Bugs on the stove top. Otherwise it was nice and handy.

Owner's Response: Aloha and mahalo for taking the time to review Poipu Shores 303A. Our direct oceanfront environment often invites mold and mildew. We work had to stay on top of it and you can see by past reviews how happy people are 303A. It is a fabulously upgraded condo. If this guest had contacted us the minute they noticed anything wayward, we would have been immediate in our response to resolve their problem. Our staff is on site at Poipu Shores everyday. The entire resort is on a dedicated pest control treatment that does preventative treatment both inside and outside the condos. Bugs like Hawaii, too, and sometimes they get past our defenses. Again, a call would have resolved any concerns.

Fantastic condo, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We came to Kauai to get married and have our honeymoon. This condo was perfect and exceeded expectations. The pictures and website descriptions were totally accurate. After going all over the island, we were convinced that we had the best location! The views, the sounds of the ocean, the convenient location, and the condo itself were just perfect. And yes, you really can see whales from the condo during whale season! And the sunset views are second to none. We have done many VRBOs and this one is definitely top notch!

The National Tropical Botanical Gardens are a delight found in the Poipu Area. Tours are highly recommended and reservations are required. We also highly recommend a helicopter tour as well as tours by boat from the west side to the inaccessible Na Pali coast. You will see sights that few get to experience in their lifetime. Whales from December through April are a delight to behold. Daily sightings of turtles and dolphins from the property.
