Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Perfectly located in Sunny Poipu Kai just a few minutes walk to several of the island's most beautiful beaches including Brennecke's, and the famous Poipu Beach great for snorkeling and turtle watching. It's also a very good place to get a close look at one of the rare Hawaiian Monk seals. Shipwreck's beach and the Hyatt hotel are a 20-30 minute walk down garden paths.

In the winter months you can see whales swimming up and down the coast and if you are interested in snorkeling or surfing, several great locations are also within walking distance.There are tennis courts available for a small fee and a beautiful pool and spa, all just steps away. The Poipu Bay Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and host to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from 1994-2006, is a short 5 minute drive.

Our condo has been recently remodeled with all the comforts of home. Our decor is unique with an Asian/Tahitian influence and we have kept it clean and uncluttered. We think it allows the mind and body to relax so that you can breath deep and enjoy the beauty of the island. The walls are a clean white and accented with some beautiful solid wood pieces and as well as some classic bamboo. We have enjoyed collecting art from the island that we felt was just a little different from your average Hawaiian condo. The floors are a beautiful Travertine, and we have extended that into the walk-in shower which is framed by glass blocks.

You can walk or drive to one of the nearby restaurants along Poipu Beach, or you may choose to cook some fresh island fish and have a romantic dinner at home on the outdoor lanai, where you can see the ocean and watch a spectacular tropical sunset.

The kitchen has granite counter tops and all the items you may need for cooking. We recently put in a new stove, and there are several outdoor gas barbeques available for our guests.

This year we added a new flat screen TV, DVD and CD/radio. In our guest closet you will find a small ice chest and several folding chairs for the beach.

In the bedroom you will find a brand new Simmons pillow top bed and we have added the new 'Top Sheet Style' so no more sharing a comforter.

We have a large walk in closet and a safe to lock away your valuables. The condo is lucky to have a good cross breeze to catch the trade winds, ceiling fans in every room, and you can often hear the surf at night from bed. We always sleep peacefully and awake ready to explore something new on the Island.

Our special island home has been rejuvenated with love and special attention to detail. It's the perfect place for a romantic honeymoon, to reconnect with a loved one, or just to relax and experience the tropical warmth of the Hawaiian islands. We are sure you will find it both comfortable and relaxing. We wish to share our tranquil Aloha with you. Come to Poipu and find a place that you can call your home away from home.

About Marc and Theresa

We fell in love with the Island of Kauai soon after we were married in 1990. On our first trip it just felt like home and soon after we found this little gem of a condo. We knew right away that it was meant to be.

Where we live in the front range of the Sierra Nevada we have busy lives and the winters can be fierce. After every visit to the Island we return home with a new outlook and a healing of the soul.

Marc and Theresa purchased this condo in 2003

Why Marc and Theresa chose South Shore

As the plane approaches the airport you can sometimes be lucky enough to look down and see whales in the water just off the coast and once on the ground the warm tropical breeze of the island seems to embrace you, all your stress and worries are some how not so important. We choose the sunny area of Poipu because it rarely rains and when it does the rainbows are abundant. We love that it is so easy and that we can just stay right there, walk to the beach or walk to dinner. Poipu is also a good base and with a car you can really explore the rest of the Island. There are so many things to do and see, never a boring moment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were married on Shipwreck Beach on Oct. 1st, it was the perfect day of our wedding at sunset. Poipu Beach has been great! we have honey mooned here and enjoyed our stay very much. (love the floors and countertops) We have traveled all over the island, hiked Sleepng Giant & Waimea Canyon. We snorkled in Kapaa and Tunnels. We Surfed in Hannalei and took a helicopter ride around the ialand. We have enjoyed every moment even being caught off guard in a rain storm to chilling at the Hyatt Spa to laying on the beach watching the sunset. We love the garden island and hope to be back soon. Everything has been a wonderful experience. Mahalo

Fabulous location! Well kept and nicely decorated! Everything we needed was here!

  • 5 of 5

Pool, hot tub and tennis courts right off the patio. Quick little walk to the beach and restaurants. Property nicely maintained. No A/C but lots of fans and with the breeze we really didn't need it. We would definitely love to come back!!!

Great week in Poipu Kai

  • 5 of 5

This is sure a sweet little condo, very conveniently located within easy walking distance of the best beaches in the area. We walked everywhere up and down the shores - all the way down the Mahaulepu Heritage Trail to the Kukui'ula Village Shopping Center. One really doesn't need a rental car if you stay here, except for exploring the other parts of the island or for getting groceries. The pool is just outside the doors, and the tennis courts are so close you can watch the entertainment. The suite was immaculately clean on our arrival, and the late check-in process was straightforward. Sunsets are better seen from the beach itself, given the fact that this unit is located on the ground floor (but this is a minor detail).

Wonderful Stay in Poipu Kahala 212

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Marc and Theresa unit 212 was terrific. The apartment has a great location in Poipu as it is 5 minute walk to both Brennecke’s and Poipu Beaches and restaurants. Additional shopping centers, grocery stores, and large selection of restaurants are within 3 mile radius from the apartment (10 minute drive). Grand Hyatt resort is a 20 minute stroll. It's also a nice starting point for day ventures to Waimea, westside of Kauai and to Hanalei Bay. Good snorkel locations are 10 minute drive away.

We appreciated the very clean apartment! The unit is beautifully decorated and has stone flooring throughout. Granite counter top in the kitchen which is well and nicely equipped with good functioning appliances. There are several very well maintained high end BBQ grills on the property where we watched many sunsets while grilling our meals. Bathroom is nice with stone throughout including the shower. The pool & hot tub are just around the corner, very convenient after a long day’s hike. Beach chairs & body boards are also available.

In addition, Marc & Theresa were very responsive for any questions that came up. We would recommend Marc & Theresa’s place without hesitation.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo and its location in Poipu. Nice 5 min walk to the beach which is very swimmable and good snorkelling from shore. The condo was very clean and had a very comfortable bed. Furnishings were amazing! It was also nice to have a washer/dryer available right in the condo. And if you are a tennis player (we are but didn't bring equipment this time), there are ten or so courts a stone's throw away. Live music can be heard on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights from the local restaurant which is also easy to walk to. There is a fabulous fish market in Koloa, about a 5 minute drive, where we bought fresh ahi and seared it on the grill--yum! We would definitely recommend this property and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Car: recommended

Poipu Kai area is a central location for your stay, the closest beach is only a 5 minute walk where you can rent snorkel gear, stand up paddle boards, surf boards, boogie boards. Turtles, whales and dolphin can often be seen from the beach.

You will also find several restaurants within a 5 to 20 minute walk. Be sure to save time to visit Waimea Canyon by car as well as the beautiful beaches on the East shore. Take time to drive North and experience the small towns on your way to Hannalei Bay and take the road all the way to the end where the Napali Coast line begins, Ke'e Beach is fantastic as the sun sets, this is a must see and an unforgettable experience. Great hiking can be found on the trail that leaves the parking lot.

You will find multiple golf courses around the island, Poipu Bay Resort Golf course is just down the road.

Try a catamaran trip with Captain Andy's from Port Allen to the Napali Coast, they will take you into a bay where you can snorkel in the turquoise water, you can almost always see dolphin and turtles, super fun. Lots of activities to be found on this island have fun planning your own.
