About the property

2 bedroom 2.5 bathroom, 1330 sq ft. Sleeps 4-6.

Our 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom condo, recently remodeled throughout, offers gorgeous white water ocean and mountain views from the kitchen, family room and master bedroom. Our beautifully furnished and decorated unit comes equipped with a high chair, portable crib, stair safety gate, cooler, beach chairs as well as a variety of outdoor toys. Building 3 is less than a 1 minute walk to the scenic and relaxing Manualoha pool as well as the Poipu Kai tennis center. Walk less than 3 minutes to one of Kauai's best body surfing and boogie boarding beaches, Brennecke's Beach, as well as Poipu Park, the gateway to beautiful Poipu Beach. Sea turtles, monk seals and spinner dolphins share this paradise. During one visit, we could even see whales spouting offshore from Brennecke's! We are within a 5 minutes' walk to several family-friendly restaurants, as well as higher-end, romantic choices at the Hyatt. If you'd rather not cook in the gourmet kitchen or grill on the outdoor barbecues available to you, a 3 minute drive (or a 20-25 minute walk) gets you to several food options (Keoki's Paradise, Puka Dog, Island Taco, Starbucks) in Poipu Shopping Village or a 6-7 minute drive gets you to the new The Shops at Kukui`ula (Tortilla Republic, Bubba name a few). Kalapaki Joe's, a sports bar that has great happy hour specials and is very family-friendly as well, is on property, and has breakfast, lunch and dinner and lots of beers on tap, as well as several big screens for sports viewing (watched our Warriors there!). Our favorite restaurants are down the Kaumualii Highway, in Kalaheo--a 15 minute drive to the north (love Brick Oven Pizza and more upscale, the Kalaheo Cafe & Coffee Company).

We have also upgraded the standard cable package to include the Sports Pass and our phones are now VoIP, which is Voice over Internet Protocol, which gives you free calls to Canada and within the US!

Kauai is just paradise--and Poipu is known as the sunny side of the island. Personally, we like to hike, take advantage of the beautiful running paths, swim in the warm Pacific Ocean and play tennis at the under-utilized, but well-kept tennis courts. Come see why we love Manualoha 306 and its location in Kauai!

About Kevin Ryan

We're Kevin & Sandy from the S.F. Bay Area. We have two 'kids', now both happily married and having families of their own. I, Kevin, fell in love with the islands in 1980 while studying at the UH Manoa campus in Honolulu. Over the years we made several trips to the Islands, getting to know the unique differences between each island. Eventually we settled on Kauai as our favorite. Although still employed in the foreseeable future, we look forward to when we can spend longer blocks of time at our island home...together, with friends & family, and we especially see Manualoha 306 as a great place for our (soon-to-be-born) and future grandchildren.

Kevin Ryan purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kevin Ryan chose South Shore

We first vacationed in Poipu (Manualoha Bldg #4) in 2000. We appreciated the great pool, with beautiful views, the fun of boogie-boarding Brennecke's Beach, the gentleness of the lagoon at the end of Poipu Beach Park leading up to Poipu Beach, the relaxed low rise development (3 stories max.) which offered uncluttered,expansive greens where our kids could play. It was during that visit we decided if we were going to buy on the Islands, it would be here in Kauai at Poipu Kai-Manualoha. Four years later we decided to make the purchase.

If you are looking to house more family and friends than MN306 can offer we also have available the unit directly below (mn303) that could sleep and additional 4 guest. The link to this unit as well as the larger MN701 (sleeps 8) can be found on the links & video page.

Great stay by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Manualoha 306 with our 9 month-old son. Location and amenities were exactly as described and we really appreciated not having to bring our own baby gear. The kitchen and living area is spacious and very comfortable. We liked that the living area is separated enough from the bedrooms for quiet napping. The kitchen is fully equipped and everything is in excellent shape. The TV is new (a Smart TV, which was a pleasant surprise) and it was great to have WiFi and VoIP phone to use. The unit shows its age a bit, but has been updated and very well maintained. The condo had everything we needed and made a great home for the 10 days we were there.

The nearest pool was closed for maintenance while we were there but we didn't miss it. It's only a 3-min walk to the kiddie beach at Poipu Beach Park, and 1 min to the other pool.

We got late check out for a reasonable fee and were able to stay as late as we needed to, which made travelling with a baby that much easier. We will definitely stay again next time we go to Poipu.

Owner's Response: So happy that you found the condo well-equipped and convenient for an infant, as we are expecting a granddaughter now from our daughter and son-in-law, who definitely will pack up their daughter and c'mon over! I love "Baby Beach" and can't think of a nicer beach to introduce a grandchild to the sand and sea. Hope to hear from you again! Thanks for the very nice review.

Great location and great view

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay here (2 adults and a 16 month old). This was a great base for exploring Kauai and convenient to plenty of nearby activities too. The property is extremely well equipped from toiletries, kitchen equipment, books and games for all ages, and plenty of beach gear to borrow. You will also find anything you might need for families to accomodate kids of all ages (high chairs/ pack & play for the littlest ones to bed rails for bigger ones). There may have been one night where we were barely uncomfortable without A/C but fans are plentiful and the breeze is great.

The view and sunsets from the balconies are great. The pool is super convenient to get to. Walking distance to a few restaurants and Brennecke's beach. A short drive to plenty of other beaches, dining, and shopping options.

Communication with the owner was prompt, helpful, and friendly.

We had a great stay and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review, and rest assured, next visit, you WILL have air conditioning! I believe you missed the conditioner window by a few weeks only.....and truly, most of the time, you don't need it (last year was an exception--hot everywhere!). I'm looking forward to having our grandkids stay soon, so I'm glad to hear you found it kid-equipped! Thanks again!

Secret Harbour, XX

Absolutely phenomenal and amazingly comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. Very clean when we got there, unbelievable spacious, and very quiet. The kitchen is fantastic and has everything you could want. The beds are very comfortable and the showers, especially the massage shower haha, are excellent. The views from the 2 balconies are amazing, especially the top one, so have the camera handy. Also there's a cupboard full of beach toys and such for both the children and us adults which came in very handy. Then there's the pool !! Once you can finally leave this comfortable place the pool is literally a 20 second walk from the door and and immaculately maintained and offers awesome views. Now the beaches ! The first one is a 2 minute walk away from the front door and Brennickes, the next one along, is another minute walk which is great for kids, snorkelling and for a surf just look to your right. Surfing there offers a left and a right happy days ! For groceries I thoroughly recommend Sueokas in Koloa, you can't wrong. So to cap it off if you want the best relaxing holiday in the most comfortable place close to everything look no further ! As we will definitely be coming back here

Owner's Response: Are we related? No! But this review is so nice, I feel like we paid for it (we didn't!). Glad you enjoyed the views and always happy when people are taking advantage of the proximity to all things water.....because it's why we chose Manualoha in Poipu Kai to begin with--the pool isn't fancy, but it is beautiful and clean and the views and the beaches---well, you said it. Thanks for taking the time to review and hope to hear from you again!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The views were perfect to wake up to! Great location to the beach, pool, restaurants and shopping. Loved the home but I would agree with the precious comments - A/C would have made the stay even better! I don't know how I missed that while booking but glad we choose this unit anyway. Sounds like A/C is coming so we'll book again.

Trade winds were nice and you don't get a lot of direct sun in the evening if the shades are down so that's perfect.

Parking is simple! Master bathroom is perfect! Kitchen is big and perfect for cooking or just hanging out.

Other than the lack of A/C (being from Seattle we're not use to the climate so it was warm for us) it was exactly what we needed!

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing! I think one of my favorite things is looking in that mirror in the master bedroom, and instead of just seeing MY face, is seeing that awesome ocean view reflected in the mirror as well! Hahaha! Glad you found the condo to your liking and we are scheduling that air conditioner install hopefully within the month!!

Wonderful Location and Views

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at this lovely home for five nights in early August. The location and setting is wonderful. Easy walk to nearby beaches where we enjoyed snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding and other activities. Also a close walk to a number of good restaurants. The condo itself has great views of the ocean from almost anywhere inside the home, and especially from the two lanais. Very private and quiet, even when on the lanais. This condo has one of the best locations in the development. Communications with the owner was easy, and he always replied promptly. We are already talking about our return to our favorites island and now our favorite place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! We're staying there in a few weeks, replacing couches....changing out shower know, the "fun" stuff that comes with ownership--but I can't wait to watch the clouds come over the palis (mountains) as I make coffee....and have dinner on the lanai as we watch the waves hit the rocks. Glad you enjoyed Kauai and Manualoha 306! But you know beauty--you ski Utah! Such a beautiful state as well!

Owner's Response: AND if all goes according to plan in a few weeks--there will be a brand new couch and lounge chair, and a new futon in the family room to enjoy! The shades are up now.... Always, things take so long in Kauai--but that's what makes it a special island, the lack of "hurry"! Thanks for the wonderful review and thanks for choosing our place! Please come again!
