About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4) Breezy Condo Close To Best Beaches On Kauai

Kauai has so much to offer, and our condo puts you in the perfect location to see and do everything. You can come back again and again and still find new sights to see and new adventures to tempt you.

Our condominium will be your home-away-from-home while you are in Kauai. It has been decorated island style with bamboo/ratan furniture and Hawaiian print materials. The two lanais are one of the best things about the condo. The lanai off the bedroom allows you to watch the sun come up, while the lanai off the living room gives you a front-row seat to spectacular sunsets. There is a separate bedroom with a California king-size bed and large walk-in closet. The bathroom is large with a separate toilet area. The walk-in shower is over-sized so you won't feel cramped. There are two sinks for your convenience. The rest of the condominium is open and airy, thanks to the vaulted ceilings and open floor plan. The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you need to make a snack or a full meal. The separate dining room comes with views of the garden. The living room is comfortable, and the sofa folds out into a queen-size bed. The closet downstairs has everything you need for a day at the beach: boogie boards, chairs, coolers, etc. The condo is a great place to relax in comfort after a busy day or any time.

Kahala and Poipu Kai Resort have several activities for you. There are two swimming pools on the property and one hot tub. Several barbecues are around the gardens so that you can prepare some of your meals outdoors. The resort has tennis courts if you want a bit more activity.

A few minutes walk will get you to some of the best beaches on Kauai. Take the path from the front door and find yourself at Brennecke Beach and Poipu Beach Park. Brennecke Beach has great waves for boogie boarding. The very next beach is Poipu. This beach has lifeguards on duty for your safety. Poipu Beach is divided into three parts: protected wading pool (perfect for young children), a somewhat protected area that is great for snorkeling and swimming, and an unprotected area for some surfing. There are also some tide pools that have little sea creatures in them. It comes with a park with play equipment for children, covered eating areas and barbecues, picnic tables, trees for shade, and bathrooms. Across the street you can rent surfboards or find something to eat.

There are walking paths to beaches and other parts of the resort. You can take a nice walk to the Grand Hyatt Hotel, which is located on Shipwreck Beach. The grounds of the Hyatt are beautiful and there are several restaurants at this location. The Hyatt also has the largest spa on Kauai. It's worth the walk over!

Two golf courses are within a mile of the condo, but there are a total of nine courses on the island. You can even find a miniature golf course on the north shore.

Two shopping areas are close by: Poipu Shopping Village and Shops at Kukui'ula. Both have shops with island merchandise, clothing, and so on. They each have a variety of restaurants. (If you eat at Keoki's Paradise Restaurant in the Poipu Shopping Village be sure to have some Hula Pie for dessert!) Poipu Shopping Village has Hawaiian dance shows a couple of times a week. There is a general store at Poipu Shopping Village where you can pick up a few things for your kitchen.

The closest town is Koloa. Also known as Old Koloa Town, it is historically significant as being the first sugar plantation town in the islands. You'll have fun poking around the little shops. There are two grocery stores in Koloa so you can supply your kitchen.

A couple of other close-by sights to see are Spouting Horn and National Tropical Botanical Garden. These are up the coast, not too far from the condo. Everything you've read about so far is within 5 miles of the condo. There is still so much to see and do beyond this. There are hiking trails all over the island. Some are difficult, so make sure you know what you're getting into before you set off. Other activities around the island include snorkeling and scuba diving, boat trips and kayaking, helicopter and airplane tours, whale and turtle watching, horseback and ATV rides, wind and kite surfing, land and ocean tours, and much more.

No matter where you go during the day, you have the comfort of knowing you'll be returning to your home-away-from-home at the end of the day.

About John and Connie Neil

We have visited most islands in the Hawaiian string. Kauai is by far our favorite. It really is the garden island! The geography is as varied as the activities that we enjoy doing. Kauai is the 'real' Hawaii, and we love it!

John and Connie Neil purchased this condo in 2013

Why John and Connie Neil chose Poipu

Besides loving the condominium, this is the perfect place to be in Kauai. It is located on the sunniest side of the island and is centrally located so that you have easy access to the entire island. Nearby are a couple of shopping centers that have a variety of restaurants. There are 2 golf courses within a mile of the condominium. A short walk down the path leads you to Brennecke Beach and Poipu Beach Park. Poipu Beach Park has play equipment for children, barbeques, picnic tables, bathrooms, and trees for shade. The ocean offers wading, swimming, boogie boarding, snorkeling, and surfing. You could spend the entire day there!

Of course, with our 2 lanais it is easy to stay at the condominium to relax. Or you can take a dip in one of the two pools at the complex. There is also a hot tub to enjoy. For those who like a little work out, we have tennis courts at the resort.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Sorry its taken me more than a week to send this after our return from Kauai. Wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay in your condo at Poipu Kai. Jim and I commented to each other many times during our time there that it is by far our favorite Kahala condo and is so perfect for us-and I would imagine for many others! We are really happy and grateful that we've been able to continue staying there after your purchase of it 2 years ago. Since we hadn't stayed there for 2 years we really noticed how much the trees have grown off the front lanai, and how they have added a welcome increase in the privacy there.

We loved the changes and additions-especially the front lanai furniture and the 2 chairs in the living room!!! Loved the new lighting in the kitchen, and also the new equipment-so much easier to cook, which we do almost every night. Also your wi-fi was SO reliable, never a problem getting on our laptop. Please keep the chair in the bedroom-it was perfect for my ukulele practice. I took lessons this visit from Hal Kinnaman a fabulous teacher in Kalaheo so needed to practice every day. We're looking forward to a new shower-as we age I think we worry more about climbing over the edges of bathtubs. Though we didn't use much of the outdoor equipment except 2 of the chairs, it looked like a nice assortment and another year I know we'll be grateful for the ice chest.

We are already looking forward to our stay next December, and would like to be considered as permanent December tenants, as I said it is a perfect condo for us, and we appreciate your sharing it.

Best Location

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo, it is always incredibly clean and well-appointed with all anyone might require for a quick vacation or a longer stay. We have rented this condo at least once a year for the past 20+ years and it keeps getting better with the owners making improvements every year. The location is terrific midway between Poipu Beach Park, with Brenecke's for a full meal or quick necessities, and the Grand Hyatt -best of all a walkway connects those 2 points and beyond. The kitchen lighting is the best for cooking once the sun has gone down, the lanai has the most comfortable chairs ever, and the new shower is floor level with no stepping up and over required. We will be back again and again.

The condo was wonderful! It was beautifully appointed with a terrific kitchen; hardwood floors; fabulous large walk-in shower; and lovely furniture inside and out. The necessities were great as well, from the extra thick and plentiful towels, to the pots and pans etc. The location was also perfect for us...just a short walk down the path to the beach. We look forward to another visit in the future. Thank you!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Overall a very nice condo. One of the shutters in the bedroom was inoperable and the ceiling fan in there would only run on low speed. Not a deal breaker since there is a sliding door in the bedroom to the front lanai. The coffee pot and microwave could use an upgrade. Really liked the walk in shower and hardwood floors. Washer and dryer are fairly new and are very quiet when running. The king size bed was very comfortable. Really like the location with proximity to the beach and pool (walkable). Very quiet in the evenings. Would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We are at the condo now and working on getting everything fixed up again. We’ve replaced the coffee maker and microwave. Our electrician should be in this week to put in the new bedroom fan. We also fixed the louvres in the bedroom. Along with that we replaced the knives, a couple of boogie boards, and folding chairs for the beach. Thanks for letting us know.

Convenient and clean

  • 5 of 5

The location was ideal to walk to beaches and restaurants. Plenty of amenities and we appreciated the closet full of snorkel gear, boogie boards, and beach chairs (although a little worn). There was even an umbrella which we needed a couple times. We weren't sure of our check out procedures since there were none written so we assumed that all was needed was to leave the key. Thank you for making our stay so easy.

Kauai vacation

  • 4 of 5

The condo and facility were great. Only a few suggestions,

Ceiling fan in bedroom needs work. Only one speed and it was slow. It was very humid and having a good bedroom fan would have helped,

Also, coffee maker needs replacment and large knifes need sharpening.

Over all we had a wonderful time and would come again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. Since we are not always there, it is good for others to let us know what needs fixing. We will look into these items as soon as possible.

Really nice place

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a beautiful place. The condo was very clean, beautiful, the lanai's were really nice, especially the one from the living room where we could have breakfast. Furniture was really nice. The only thing i would, if i may, recommend the owners: to sharpen the knives in the kitchen because it was hard to cut things such as pineapple, etc. Also to replace beach chairs and beach umbrella. The rest was great and the condo is well equiped with everything you might need. Thank you John and Connie, it shows that you love your condo and take good care of it.
