Charming Polynesian style Villa, in Poipu Beach, Kauai's Sunny South Shore!

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,100 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 14 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4) close to the beach

Our vacation villa #14 is located in the heart of Poipu and our Polynesian style villa offers all the comforts of home in a luxurious tropical setting.

With only 15 two villa townhouses in this 7 acre garden setting, this is one of the lowest density destinations in Poipu. Here you will enjoy spaciousness, privacy and quiet enjoyment of the tropical flowers, trees, palms and resident birds. The buildings are situated to provide privacy with garden views. Our spacious covered lanai (12’ by 12’) provides a unique “extra” room to enjoy the botanical landscape. There is a large swimming pool next to the large clubhouse (with Wi-Fi) and covered terrace with communal BBQ grills. Other amenities include table tennis, saunas and tennis court. With so few villas it is not unusual to have the pool, tennis court and clubhouse all to yourself.

Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa has two levels. The upper level has a spacious master bedroom with en-suite. The entry level has a large living room, full size kitchen, guest bedroom, bath with laundry, dining area and lanai. The lanai is accessed via sliding patio doors from either the living room or dining room. This privately owned villa is furnished with tropical and plantation style themes. Our villa have a full-size, fully equipped kitchen for a home-away-from-home experience. The kitchen includes a refrigerator(with ice maker), range, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster or toaster-oven and other amenities, pots/pans, cutlery, flatware, dishes, glasses, linens, etc.

About Erick van Elk

We are retired, living on Vancouver Island (Canada)and own this beautiful island home - for over 15 years now. One of the pleasures that we enjoy with our vacation home is updating and maintaining the tropical atmosphere and providing visitors with a delightful holiday destination.

We also co-manage rentals for seven other vacation homes for owners in the same complex. These are all individually owned condos each with their own unique style.

Erick van Elk purchased this villa in 1995

Why Erick van Elk chose Poipu

We have been visiting Kauai since the late 70's and found ourselves especially attracted to the Poipu Beach area. Always sunny and never crowded. When we decided to purchase our own property we asked people living in the area for the best location and we were told about this very special, private and lush tropical setting in the heart of Poipu. As soon as we entered the grounds we discovered a different and magical world with unique architecture in a quiet and spacious garden locale.

What makes this villa unique

Fully equipped, meticulously maintained, two bedroom and two bathroom villas in a very private setting. Guests repeatedly tell us that one of the most treasured features of these villas is the large, private, covered lanais overlooking the gardens. This is the perfect setting for reading, bird watching, and dining al fresco. But the fun doesn't end on the lanai, there is the large swimming pool with ample deck chairs and tables for just 'hanging out' at the pool (with only 30 units, you might very well find you have the pool to yourself). Next to the pool is the patio area with tables for dining/relaxing/accessing your computer/etc. and next to that are two communal bbq grills. The clubhouse itself has tables, chairs, sofas and a great variety of books for your enjoyment. There are mens' and ladies' bathrooms/changing rooms by the pool each with a sauna. And the tennis court is a few steps away.

What could be better?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had 7 wonderful days and we loved the crater! The island is magical We did not want to leave here and go back home to our fast-paced life style. We started coming up with some excuses to not coming into work on Monday:

1) Dan fell into a lava tube and is trapped.

2) Dijana got hit by a coconut on the head and is in a coma.

3) Dan was kidnapped by the Menehune (island's little people)

4) Dijana has 3rd degree burns from the Poipu sunshine.

5) Dan touched a monk seal and was arrested for a federal offense.

6) Dijana was attacked by wild chicken and kittens and suffered some bad injuries.

7) Dan attempted to hand glide off Waimea canyon and went missing.

8) Dijana attemped to ride Wailua Falls and went missing.

9) Dan OD'd on Mai Tai's.

10) T-Rex ate our plane tickets.

Everything we imagined and more!!

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Poipu Beach was perfect and my husband, myself and our two children ages 12 and 15 felt right at home in this condo. Plenty of room, on property activities (swimming, ping pong, and board games) and a very short walk to a lovely beach where we actually saw turtles, a seal and a ray on the same day!! I would highly recommend this place to any active family!! Mahalo! We will be back!!

Fantastic family holiday- excellent condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Poipu crater in unit 6. The kitchen was well appointed with Tupperware for use, cooler, beach toys and more. It was so easy! Our kids are older so it was nice to have so much space. It was so comfortable the unit was fabulous. The master bed was SO comfortable. We didn't want to go. The shared BBQ area/clubhouse was a fun change from the beach. The pool was not really usable due to some alge issues while we were there.

One negative comment I have is that unit 6 is right across from the garbage and parking for the upper units. Specifically, the bedrooms face the parking lot and garbage disposal- it's hot so you have to sleep with windows open. Although there is a 'quiet time' for the complex, people like to come home playing loud music at midnight, have lengthy strata meetings at the garbage area (right outside the bedroom windows) at 7 am and garbage pick ups at 4:30 am on thursdays (totally not in control of the condo complex, but annoying). Little things, but good to note.

Overall, we would come again in a heartbeat! Missing it already.

wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Helllo Erick

Mahalo for a wonderful stay at your unit. We loved it! From the moment we arrived to find a chilled bottle of wine and two glasses in the fridge, to the discovery of boogie boards, beach mats and towels, golf clubs, coolers - everything was there! You thought of everything! The kitchen was the best provisioned kitchen that I have ever had on VRBO! The quality of the appliances were better than what we had at home! You even had shampoo and soap. Sitting in the Lanai even during a downpour was tranquil and cozy. We Bar B Q'd and played tennis and ping pong, walked to the beach for sunset every night. It was so wonderful.

Mahalo for a wonderful family vacation that we will always treasure the memories of.
