Vicki Atkins purchased this Condo in 1995
Why Vicki Atkins chose Poipu
Poipu Beach speaks for itself, world-famous with white beaches, and convenient to restaurants, equipment rentals/sales. Kahala Resort is ideally situated, close to the beach (world reknown for snorkeling and whale watching), pools, tennis courts, golf courses. Paradise truly awaits you!

Lovely homey condo a short walk from the beach
Loved our stay here. The condo was comfortable, clean, and close to all things beach related. It was a great place to have as home base. Lots of good eating in close proximity. Easy walk down to the beach where you can snorkel or sit on the beach and watch whales, turtles, spinner dolphins, and the occasional monk seal.
More than 200 steps to beach!
Lovely condo. Well-equipped. Beach chairs. Cooler. Lots of kitchen pots, pans, blender, etc. No spices or staples, though. Great grounds! Well-maintained! Not far from Poipu Public Beach. Visit the nearby Cave (past the Hyatt) and Secret Beach.
Only real negative was that the condo is located very near the main road-so noisy. I imagine the condo might be hot, but we were there during cool weather. Swamp cooler only cools bedroom not living room or kitchen area.
Lovely proprietor. Answers questions quickly. Thank you so much!
Not really 200 steps but easy access and close to the beach. Beautiful place with lots of things close by. Would definitely come back again.
wonderful Kauai getaway
Nice condo clean and up to date. we had no issues and great location but we knew that.
only suggestion is to get a combo entry lock. Keys are a pain when one is out and about.
Great location. Easy walk to the beach. Well stocked kitchen and overall very nice condo. Would stay here again.
Everything we hoped for our Kauai stay
This condo was very comfortable and homey. It was wonderful to open all the windows for the cross-breezes from the nearby ocean shore (close enough to walk to): it was all we needed for air conditioning. From the lanai there is a nice peak at the ocean to the horizon for beautiful sunsets! This unit has a nice location on the property and is convenient to shopping and restaurants. We liked the Beach House for delicious food, fine service, and a beach side view. Vicki was a very nice hostess. We would certainly stay here again if we have an opportunity to return to Kauai, a truly spectacular Hawaiian island.
Aloha and welcome to the garden island of Kauai. Our 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo was been completely renovated and includes everything you would want in your own home. Located in Kahala, our complex is beautifully manicured, includes a grassy play area, barbeques, a hot tub and two fantastic swimming pools. One of the pools is more family oriented and includes a hot tub. The other pool is much more secluded, includes a grill and barbeque seating that is covered and quite private. Shhh....keep it a secret!
Tennis anyone? The Poipu Tennis Club is located in our development and offers clay and grass courts for a small fee. Kahala is home to the world famous Poipu Kai Tennis Complex which includes grass courts in addition to standard courts.
A walker's paradise, the beach is merely 200 steps along a beautifully landscaped greenbelt. The first beach you will encounter is the multi-faceted Brennecke's Beach is a haven for boogie boarders and body surfers. The main part of this beach includes a green grassy area, shade trees, picnic shelters, restrooms and showers. Brennecke's offers a calm-water swimming area perfect for children first experiencing the ocean or those who want to explore with their masks and snorkels or on their boogie boards. A few (promise) more steps and you are at world-famous Poipu Beach which offers snorkeling, surfing and paddle boarding. Restaurants located across from the beach offer frozen ices, cold drinks and awesome sandwiches. The Brennecke's restaurants upstairs offers sit-down dining and a bar featuring island delights and fabulous food. There is also a restaurant located adjacent to the main swimming pool. Poipu Beach has been voted Best Beach in America multiple times and its reputation is well deserved.
Two shopping centers are located in the Poipu area, one within walking distance that has restaurants ranging from Roy's to Tropical Burger. The other is located just past the Sheraton and is a lovely new gathering place with restaurants including Bubba's (a must for meat eaters), to the new Tortilla Grill with a fresh new approach to Mexican cuisine, to spots offering full-scale dining to those serving tapas (small plates which are perfect in allowing you to sample all the island delights). Shops offer clothing, island art, equipment sale and rental and everything one needs for the beach! Or follow the manicured walking path to The Marriott or The Grand Hyatt which are located on either sides of our condo. The Marriott offers a beach bar/restaurant while the Hyatt offers a beach/bar restaurant, an incredible happy hour with live music, upscale Italian dining as well as one of our favorites, Tide Pools which is located directly over expansive koi pools for the special occasions. Another favorite to be mentioned is The Beach House; if not for dinner, at least go for happy hour (try the Lime Kafir Martini)...but not matter when you go, take your camera for breathtaking sunset views...a perfect location for those photographs which will remind you of your wonderful holiday on the most beautiful of the American islands!
Activities abound including everything you can imagine for the outdoor enthusiast or beach lover. Whale watching and dinner cruises offer opportunities for viewing dolphins, sea turtles, shark as well, if you prefer being on top of the water. Learn to wind surf on the North Side of the island (which is definitely a day trip and one you will never forget). Hiking the Napali Coast provides access to one of the most photographed cliff-side oceanic views. Paddle boarding, snorkeling, surf sailing and surfing awaits you. Instruction, snorkeling and board rentals are all available at Nukomoi's which is next to Brennecke's Restaurant about a hundred more steps down the beach. We have watched these local surfers grow from young entrepreneurs to successful family men....we've known these teachers since our son began surfing with them at the age of three which is why we are comfortable with this recommendation.
Horse-back riding, zip line tours, four-wheeling, mountain biking ... there really is something for everyone on the island of Kauai. Three miles up the road is Spouting Horn, a natural rock formation that collects the surging surf and shoots it into the sky and is home to vendors featuring jewelry, island arts and crafts.
