Stunning Ocean Views:

All condos are oceanfront, specifically designed with the living area and master bedrooms with views and audio of the Pacific Ocean. Perched east of the southernmost point of the island, Poipu Shores is in the lee of the trade winds. Sunshine abounds in Poipu. Your views are expansive and encompass Kauai’s south shore, all the way out to Niihau the Forbidden Island. Dramatic and mesmerizing are the best words to describe this view. This condo is in a building that houses only five townhomes. Your semi-private front lawn is a peninsula into the blue Pacific. On each side you have small inlets that harbor the ever present giant green seas turtles and crashing waves to enjoy.

The waves will hypnotize you!

  • 4 of 5

Loved our week at 104C. Very convenient, peaceful, quiet place to stay. The views are breathtaking. My favorite thing to do was sit on the lanai and take in the view and breathe in the sea air. I'd love to come back again! I'd probably choose to not stay here during hot spells in the 90 degree range due to no AC.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to review, Rebecca. We agree, it doesn't get much better that sitting on one of the two ocenafront lanais and just taking it all in! After many decades of long agruments with the Poipu Shores Resort Owner's Association, all owners at Poipu Shores are now allowed to put in air conditioning. The new central air conditioning system at Poipu Shores 104C is scheduled to be installed the last week of October 2017. That will make 104C perfect to all visitors.

Adequate but NEEDS A/C in bedrooms to sleep

  • 3 of 5

No question: Killer view and close to Poipu Beach. However.

Although we knew the unit relied on trade winds and fans for cooling, and we wanted to try it because of the view and proximity (3/10th mile walk) to Poipu Beach. We were there for 4 nights. What we learned is that due to the build up of heat during the day (hi temps were in the low-mid 80s), the condo remained un-sleepably hot until 2-3AM. Yes, we had all the windows open and the fans running at high speed. But, the trade winds seems to run parallel to the entire complex so they didn't flow thru our unit in any meaningful amount. And, the fans (both ceiling and portable) could only do so much. Hence, the condo needs A/C in the bedrooms.

We also learned that the proximinity to the ocean, while providing a spectacular view, also means that when the waves in the summer are CRASHING on the cliffs below they generatie a lot of noise. Enough in fact, to make drifting off to sleep, aside from the heat, even more challenging. We actually bought ear plugs after the 1st night! Of course you can close the sliding door and louvered windows but that means the heats stays in even longer. So, it's a no-win situation.

Happily, the condo was tastefully decorated, clean and well appointed. My guess is that staying will be much more restful and enjoyable in the winter months when the temps are in the 70s, and the ocean swell is from the north.

Lastly, conversational privacy from the master bedroom and bathroom is severely limited by the open and non-closable transoms (for ventalation) above the master bedroom doors and bathroom wall, both adjoining the main hall/staircase. Don't forget or you may have have to endure some embassasment and/or some explaining to do if there are others sharing the unit with you.

Due to the overnight heat our rest was compromised and we left thinking we would only consider booking this place again during the winter. Any future summer visits would be limited to places with A/C. Hope others find this review helpful.

Whale Watcher's Dream!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this condo with one primary thing in mind.....whale watching. We saw lots of whales and also found a real gem in this condo! 104C offers an incredible, unobstructed view of the ocean from a second story lanai, as well as a ground floor patio. Perfect places for watching whales put on amazing shows every morning and evening AND viewing gorgeous sunsets! Turtles can be seen in the clear, blue water below. The waves crashing on the rocks are not only beautiful but a wonderful sound to fall asleep to. 104C is nicely decorated are accurate. The beds were very comfortable. No A/C in the unit, but did have fans. We were there in January and were fine with fans. The kitchen was very nice and had anything you would need. We did use the gas BBQ grill that is cleaned and maintained by the staff. Walking distance to Poipu Beach (and Brennecke's). Patricia was so pleasant and helpful. Two weeks was just not enough....WE'LL BE BACK!

Poipu Shores 104C!

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely 2 bedroom condo, with the master suite on the water with an amazing view of the ocean! 2nd bedroom has a garden view, and the main living area/kitchen also shares the view of the water. Private lanai & grassy area overlooking the water is great for both whale & turtle watching, as well as sunsets. Walking distance to both the Marriott & Hyatt properties and close proximity to many restaurants & great hikes. Only 30 mins from Lihue airport. Definitely would come here again! Patricia was lovely to deal with & definitely had the Aloha spirit!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was located in a beautiful location . The best part was the walkout to a beautiful view of the ocean . Turtles were always in great view. The condo was clean and furnished nicely with everything we needed including beach equipment. There wasnt air conditioning which I knew about prior to booking but it would have been nice to have. The people next door had a full house including a baby. Walls are thin and we woke up every morning to the baby crying . Overall though we had a good experience

Clean, Comfortable, AMAZING View

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very comfortable for my parents and I in early June and we all really enjoyed it. Having the bedrooms on a separate floor than the living room was really nice. The stairs are a bit steep so trips up and down were limited for my parents. My sister and her family stayed in a neighboring condo and we all ended up cooking dinner and hanging out on the lanai of 104C for all of our meals. The kitchen was better stocked with cooking utensils than any other rental I've stayed in. The view from the small yard on the lanai and the second floor master bedroom are incredible. Turtles were always visible in the pools below the condo. The waves crashing on the rocks were impressive in June and we never tired of watching. Waves could definitely be heard in the master bedroom but not so much in the second bedroom. The stars were beautiful. Beds were comfortable. There is no AC but there are ceiling fans and stand-up oscillating fans in both bedrooms. This is a typical hawaiian-style home with lots of screened windows and air slats- so sound easily travels. Although the grounds of the condo were fairly quiet, I still wore earplugs to bed to drown out any outside noises and sleep longer- it wasn't a problem. The lanais are separated by narrow walls covered in foliage, but you are certainly close to your neighbors when outside, although we enjoyed this and didn't have any problems. Although there is no direct ocean access from the condo, Poipu beach was a very short walk away. We spent a lot of time in the pool- there are plenty of chairs and tables and the view is beautiful. Poipu was a comfortable place to jog in the mornings and you can choose from hills or flat roads. We preferred to fill our water bottles from large containers of filtered water rather than the tap, simply because we preferred the taste. Everyone was great to work with- we would definitely stay here again.
