Golf courses are near by and the unit comes equipped with two set of clubs. Just let me know you want to use them and I will make sure they are available for you.

This end unit offers both ocean and pool views with beautiful cool trade winds moving through the condo. This unit is in the shade all day so no need for air-conditioning.

About Beverley Ellul

Joe and Bev have been traveling to Kauai for about 15 years now and love it more and more. Our plan is to retire there in a few years so we are making sure we have a beautiful home to retire to and share with others. Joe is a Managing Director at a large chip manufacturer in the Bay area and we live in San Jose.

Beverley Ellul purchased this condo in 2013

Why Beverley Ellul chose South Shore

When we saw this particular property we were immediately taken with the location and the views. The home was so sweet being on two levels (2nd and 3rd floor) which makes it very private. It is an end-unit making sure there are lots of cool trade winds moving through the home.

What makes this condo unique

Right next door to the Hyatt is an ideal location for popping over there for lunch or dinner.

The pictures don't do it justice. Every aspect of this property was lovely and well cared for. The master bedroom in the loft offered a lot of privacy and the collection of beach items was very handy. The only downside was a big construction project going on nearby and frequent lawn mowing that disturbed the peace a bit. Also not quite as close to poipu park as I had imagined. A short drive but a long walk if you are carrying any gear. Beverly was very attentive to any questions and the pantry was well stocked.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, thanks so much for the glowing remarks about our home. I'm sorry that during your 3 day stay you experienced some lawn mowing. Also sorry for the construction noise that you experienced. I don't think it is long-term. We hope you come again to visit our home. I am now in Poipu Sands staying with a friend at another unit to attend a HOA meeting. The construction is winding down and scheduled to be completed in May. Again sorry for the inconvenience.

Beautiful appartment in very nice location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful appartment with nice kitchen/dining area and living room. The second bed room is upstairs with separate bathroom and balcony. The balcony on the main floor is large enough for a family have dinner/breakfast outside. Especially breakfast outside was beautiful, watching the sun rise. Shipwreck beach is great for swimming. There is beautiful walking path that follows the cliffs for a few miles - whether you want to go running or just walking it is wonderful. There are ample options for shopping - whether it is the small shopping center at Poipu or Hawaiian style street food (we loved the latter). It took us about 90 min to get to the northwest end of the island (Kalalau trail) and about 80 minutes to Koke statepark (Waimea canyon) (btw. if you plan to stay at Kauai you have to see both - absolutely stunning).

Can't Recommend Enough

  • 5 of 5

As frequent visitors to Hawaii, our most recent trip was planned to be about relaxation only and I cannot emphasize enough how perfect of a setting Bev and Joe’s condo was.

From the moment we booked, Bev was attentive and accommodating and obviously very proud of her home, which made the experience stress free.

The lanais, like others have mentioned, are awesome. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that we often looked forward to getting back from our daytrips to lay back on the lanais with a bottle of wine more than many of the amazing trips themselves.

The condo offered too much space for the two of us, but we don’t regret our decision. Everything we wanted was available from luxurious modern upgrades (kitchen, stone shower) to accessibility to multiple beaches (Shipwreck , Poipu) and fine dining.

Bev and Joe have a gem and we loved every minute there.

Wonderful Kauai getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in the middle of November in this unit. It was our 30th wedding anniversary and we absolutely loved the condo and its location. Bev (the owner) was awesome, accommodating, easy to deal with and she replied to any of my questions or emails within minutes.

Heated pool (always quiet) was just outside, upscale Hyatt resort and Shipwreck beach short 5 min stroll and our favorite Poipu beach either short walk or about 2 min by car. Car ride has an advantage that you can load and leave the comfy beach chairs and umbrella (provided) in the trunk and then just carry it to the beach from the close-by parking lot…

We haven’t used the downstairs bedroom, but the upstairs master one has an awesome trade winds breeze (along with 2 fans), so it actually feels cool.

2 bathrooms are nicely done; the new bottom level shower is perfect.

Living areas are very nicely furnished in the island style, with the large flat screen TV and awesomely fast internet! Kitchen has everything what you need for preparing your food (which we like to do).

And the best thing about this unit is the lanais. There are actually two of them, but we did not even use the upstairs one. The main floor lanai is so large, quiet and nicely furnished, that you can spend the whole day there, listen to the breeze, watch the ocean and not even move. We had couple of rainy days, but it did not bother us at all. Lanais are completely covered so we just enjoyed sitting there, drinking coffee and reading.

If we go back to Kauai, we will definitely rent this unit again.
