The spacious Poipu guest bedroom is located on the main floor, and provides both a double and twin beds. It has an adjoining oversized bathroom with shower unit.
A great Poipu trade wind/breeze travels from the nearby mountains and circulates throughout this spacious unit to keep it cool and cozy throughout the year. Enjoy your favorite beverage & novel while sitting outside on the oversized private lanai; or relax, bask in the sun amid the peaceful garden and take in the tropical breeze and garden/mountain view.
The kitchen is fully equipped including a coffee maker, blender and toaster. You can make pizza, spaghetti, bake cookies and a lot more. There is a full-sized washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience.
Inside the condo, we have a closet that stores boogie boards, beach chairs, a beach umbrella and, of course, beach towels. Feel free to use any of them - we simply want to make your stay as comfortable and convenient as possible.
The Poipu Kai resort is surrounded by lush gardens, offering peace and privacy. A gas grill is available for your use just a few steps from the condo. The tropical walking paths throughout the resort are beautifully landscaped and lit for romantic evening strolls.
If you like to play tennis, Poipu Kai has 8 full tennis courts that you can reserve for a small fee. For the golfers, Poipu Bay Golf (home of the PGA Grand Slam from 1994-2006) is less than a half mile from our doorstep.
The beaches are a 5- 7 minute walk. Activities such as snorkeling, open-water swimming, body-surfing, kayaking, and surfing are offered at Brennecke's, Shipwrecks and Poipu Beach. Poipu Beach has a children's playground and a wonderful, calm and shallow beach suitable for younger children (Keiki Beach).

There are amazing walking trails along the coast and terrific paths to run, all safe and convenient.
There is a BBQ on the grounds with all the necessary utensils in the kitchen. Stop by Kauai's Costco in Lihue to stock up for the week. You must have a membership card but its worth it. Otherwise the Big Save Market is in Old Koloa for more convenient shopping needs.
Enjoy your stay. It is an amazing island and we are so excited to be sharing our slice of heaven with you. Mahalo!
Year Purchased: 2012
About: I grew up on the east coast with summers on the NJ and Maryland shores. I always wanted to move west and ultimately ended up in Maui with my first real job out of college, University of Pittsburgh, go Steelers! Work took me to Palm Springs and later LA but I vowed that I would move back to the islands. Then a good friend had her amazing wedding on Kauai and I was hooked, committing to following my dream. Kauai is it for us! I am a dreamer, a runner and outdoor enthusiast. My goal is to hike all of Kauai and make the island my family's permanent home over time. I can feel it!! I have two boys, husband David and a little puppy dog Lucy. My only challenge is that I hate to leave her on my trips to the island and it probably limits me at times, I love her! (and of course my boys and husband! :) ) We are a total soccer family and support our kids in every way. Life is good!!!
Why Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
Poipu has always been our dream destination to enjoy with family and friends. It is so quiet and convenient to everything that Kauai has to offer. The location works on so many levels. Air conditioning is not required most days due to the trade winds and the units angle to the mountains and strong airflow. The pool often feels like its our very own pool, so quiet, convenient and uninhabited! We get a great run/walk in the morning as the sun rises, taking in the cliffs of the Poipu Shores. This investment is important only if we can share it with our friends and family. We look forward to the day that our kids get married and we can bring the extended family and friends and fill the condo, one day retiring and spending our senior years on the island. It is our very favorite island.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The large and spacious non smoking Poipu condo with great trade winds and mountain views is located in the heart of Poipu Kai Resort with access to two swimming pools, one right outside your doorstep. We fell in love with this unit because of its location, spaciousness and lanai with amazing views and trade winds. You really can never get enough of that view! We fell in love with Makanui after looking at second homes because the buildings have a lot of charm and it feels much more residential than a commercial area. Over time it has far exceeded my expectations. I love it more and more and miss it when I cannot get to the island every few months.
