About Michelle Armson, owner

Bill and I live in Foresthill, California, which is in the Sierra foothills close to Lake Tahoe. We have two sons, three Grandchildren. I am a personal trainer and Bill is VP for Zafco International. We have been visiting Kauai for over 20 years and have always dreamed that someday we might own a piece of paradise. In January, 2012 our dream came true.

We are very excited to share our new home with you.

Michelle Armson, owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why Michelle Armson, owner chose Poipu

Over the years we have stayed in several condos both on the North and South shore. Mostly oceanfront and paid the price. In November, 2011 we stumbled on to Waikomo Stream Villas. It is a wonderful plantation style complex. Small, quiet, and peaceful. We knew it was where we wanted to be.

What makes this condo unique

The location is fantastic. Minutes from all that you want to do in Kauai. We continue to add the special 'little extras' to make you stay a memorable one.

Comfy and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the real gem here is the complex...very well maintained and quiet with a beautiful pool that we had to ourselves a lot of the time. Perfect location. Very convenient to anything you need. Beautiful mature tropical landscaping.

As for the unit itself, very comfortable and accurately represented in the photos. A lot of extra things were provided like toiletries and basic condiments. And for fun, there are boogie boards, a surf board, snorkeling gear, coolers and beach chairs. A lot of things that you aren't having to rent. Really nice cookware and kitchen supplies. Everything you need is there.

And finally, excellent communication with Michelle. All questions and inquiries were answered right away. We would/will definitely love to stay here again.

Perfect Place - Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

So my wife and I stayed at this lovely condo from July 8th to July 19th 2017... Its hard to put into words how great our stay was. The unit is located on the dryer side of the island and is convenient to shops and dining locations. The grounds were absolutely spectacular and everyone we met at the complex including the workers were, very very friendly. The condo has everything you can think of, its like stepping into the owners ( Michelle's ) home. Michelle was fantastic and took the time to explain all the ins and outs of the island and her advice was spot on. We loved the feeling of not being in a tourist trap and enjoyed the freedom the condo provided. Kauai is truly a paradise and we tried to enjoy as much of it as we could. We rented a car and traveled almost 1200 miles in 11 days, and thoroughly enjoyed every mile. Well, maybe not every mile in the rush hour traffic, lol. The island of Kauai puts you in the mood to enjoy life, and my wife and I did just that, beaches, helicopters and ATV's - what more can you ask for...!!! Thank You, Thank You - Thank You.....!!!!!!

Wonderful stay in beautiful Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our five-night stay in this condo. The unit is as advertised - large, spacious, clean and well-equipped. The location in Poipu served us really well as a home base for all the things we wanted to do on our visit to the island. It was also very handy to have nearby (in very easy walking distance) shopping and restaurants. We were surprised with how comfortable we were without air conditioning, and slept really well with the lovely tradewinds. We also found the bed very comfortable. The one time we needed to address a small issue Michelle was very easy to reach and made sure her handy-man could address the problem immediately. The only minor complaint we have - which I see was addressed in another recent review - is the lighting in the bedroom which is very dark. We would definitely have appreciated more overhead lighting. But that's a quibble. It's a great condo in a super location and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

Owner's Response: We really appreciate you to taking the time to write such a nice review. Regarding the bedroom being a little dark, in the nearly six years we have owned and rented the condo, we have never had any of our guests mention this until now. Maybe the outside foliage needs to be trimmed a bit.The bedroom does face North/East and receives morning sun. There are three large lamps in the bedroom. Perhaps we can install brighter light bulbs.

Clean apartment, good location.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was comfortable and clean and owners supplied most kitchen and bathroom amenities. The Waikimo Stream Villas grounds are lovely and the pool was a surprisingly nice hangout. The central location was helpful and we enjoyed walking to the shops and restaurants across the road. The bed was large and the mattress was good quality. Downsides: the whole apartment felt dark and could use more lighting (especially the master bedroom which doesn't have any overhead lights); the view from the lanai wasn't spectacular (overlooked parking lot), and the toilet occasionally would make noise which woke us up.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you had an issue with the toilet. If you would have let us know, it would have been addressed right away. Our handyman replaced the flapper and all is good. The bedroom does only receive morning light but the rest of the condo is very bright with both morning sunrise and the afternoon sunset as can be viewed by our photos. Many of our guests have commented over the years on how much they enjoy our private lanai. From time to time the management does trim back the lush foliage around our lanai because it will sometimes reach the roof, but it grows back very quickly. There is a small B&B located behind our resort which is very quiet with minimal guests.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for the entire month of February 2017. This condo is in a great location close to restaurants , shopping, and beautiful Poi Pou Beach by the Sheraton. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed. We spent many hours on their beautiful lanai. We felt very much at home here. Michellle was very easy to contact and available the few times I needed to contact her. I was impressed by all the cleaning supplies that were available for us to use. You all not be disappointed staying here. With this being said I need to conclude by saying the one negative for the two of us. We are an older couple and and the distance from where you park to the condo is quite away. That in itself was not a problem till we had to carry groceries from the car to the 2nd floor. You would be surprised how much you need when you stay for a month. We asked the office why they didn't have a grocery cart that people could use their answer was it was stolen. Except for this we enjoyed our stay. Alan & Judy

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry to hear about the resort's missing cart. Although the parking lot is a short walk, when carrying heavy items, it may be a problem. When we are there next month, I will purchase a folding cart that we will store in the condo for our guests to use. Mahalo for bringing this to our attention.

A Truly Tranquil Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful one bedroom unit with lots of room. Kitchen is very well appointed, though minimal staples. Lanai is wonderful! Unit is in a tranquil (there's that word again) complex, with birds singing, and frogs singing, and it is gently shaded. Convenient location to beach and mall. Ownre is wonderful - a great communicator, and very helpful!! Mahalo Michelle!
