About Amy Vandervort

We live in Golden, Colorado and like enjoy the warm sun and water of Hawaii to warm up! Our condo is very large and it makes for a great family vacation. Our kids love coming here and swimming at Poipu Beach. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

We also have a 4 bedroom house as well as a 4 bedroom condo located within a two to three minute walk from Kauai 5-). Both sleep up to 8 guests.

Aloha From Jon and Cindy

Amy Vandervort purchased this condo in 2003

Why Amy Vandervort chose Poipu

Very convenient to everything and enough space for an entire family. Hyatt Resort and Spa is very close, as is the Poipu Beach area. Also very casual environment for relaxing and some great dining very close by too.

Also, it does not rain as much on the south shore of Kauai.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful location and easy to walk to beach and restaurants. Try the Hyatt Spa for a massage!

Roy's and Keoki's restaurants are our favorite, as well as the Beach House.

Go for a nice oceanside hike in th early morning to watch the turtles bob in the surf!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was really nice. Really big and in a great location. We walked to almost everything.

We also liked the new flat screen TV, as it connected to Netflix and Pandora, so I could use my

accounts here and listen to music and movies. It was a really nice picture and the HD was cool.

Parking was really close and easy to find. Very private, as the entry is not shared with anyone else.

We would give it 2 thumbs up!

Great place to stay in a great location

We really enjoyed our stay, the condo was better than expected. Very roomy with large bedrooms and living space. Very comfortable living space and well stocked kitchen. Would stay there again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Norton for your kind review! We are very happy that you and your family had a wonderful time. We try to provide a great value for a large 5 bedroom property and we also try to make sure things are up to date. Your feedback is very helpful. This Spring we replaced the master bedroom mattress with a new mattress and we hope this provided some great sleeping comfort. We also have a new kitchen refrigerator that is coming in March, to provide optimal and new fridge options in the kitchen area. We love staying at "Kauai Five O" too and we hope that you might return again soon. With warm Aloha, Jon and Amy :)

Owner's Response: Thank you Shawn for your review and feedback! We greatly appreciate it. We will work to post a layout of the property for future guests. It is an unusually large property, with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. We do have a video walkthrough on the VRBO site that is helpful to show the 1st and 2nd floor areas. We also are happy to answer guest questions, prior to their arrival. This week we added new and improved lighting in the master bathroom and also a new master bedroom mattress, based on guest feedback. We do everything we can to constantly be improving and guest feedback like this, is extremely helpful to know what needs to be addressed for optimal future guest experience. Thank you for your feedback :)

Our family of 10, grandparents, children, grandchildren, spent our 2017 Christmas holiday here. It was perfect. Better than described, completely stocked with anything you might need. Furnishings and accessories are great, very centrally located, we saw whales, sea turtles and pigs every day. We sure hope to return. Best family vacation ever!

Great location/home!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home and 1 other for our stay for a week from the same owners this past June. They were great to work with, fast responses with all random questions we had. We loved the spacious home, lots of room for everyone to have their own space as well as have a group together. The home did not have AC so initially it was very warm. After a day or 2 the home cooled down (probably just from being closed up for days). The homes had everything you would need to enjoy the beaches that are easily a 5 minute walk away as well as some shopping and great food less than a mile away. Parking was never an issue for us with our group of 17 total in the 2 homes. Kitchen was well equipped with all the amenities needed to make a meal at home as well as a few grills for grilling by the pool. We highly recommend this home for a larger group and will definitely plan to stay here again in the future as we are just in love with Kauai and love the south side of the island!

Owner's Response: Thank you Francis for your kind review! We are so happy that you and your family had a wonderful time and enjoyed both properties in the same complex. We try and make sure things meet your expectations and that you love the Poipu area as much as we do :) We are here to help you with your next vacation and we also have another property, very close to these two, so we can handle parties up to 25 people, across the 3 locations! Great for family reunions or larger wedding parties etc. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. With Warmest Aloha, Jon and Amy

Great for 2 families staying together!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here Feb 2017. We had 4 adults and 6 kids. The two bedrooms downstairs were great for the adults, and all the kids had their own space upstairs. The condo had everything we needed...beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach towels, sand toys, coolers, etc. That was perfect! We made a Costco run and stocked up on breakfast and lunch items and used the grills at the pool area. The *beautiful* walk to Poipu beach took about 10-15 minutes depending on how fast the kids were. We lugged all the gear down there our first day, but the second day, we sent the dads in a car with all the gear and they had it all set up by the time the mom's and kids walked down. The kids only went in the pool once while we made dinner, they had a fun enough time, but we didn't go to Hawaii to hang out a pool. We walked to shipwreck beach and that too is about a 15 minute walk depending on how speedy you are. The location was close to everything, and we always found parking right next to the unit. We had a couple of hot days and the unit got a little warm, but the fans everywhere helped, we understand that not many places in Hawaii have AC. We were trying to soak in the heat, because we knew we had to go back to the cold weather in a week. We had a great time in Kauai and can't wait to go back. This condo was great for our group of 10. Thank you!

Plus: The unit comfortably accommodated 10 persons. The location is ideal; close to Poipu Beach, hotels, supermarkets, and most of the major attractions on the island. The location is also very convenient to the airport. Ample on site parking is available. Unit has great equipment for the beach and surfing. The unit is well equipped and furnished.

Minus: Unit is on second floor with no elevator so seniors need help with luggage and must be able to climb stairs. Cleaning service did not clean under beds or furniture. No air conditioning so multiple fans are required to run in every room in order to achieve a comfortable room temperature. The on site pool is useless. It is ice cold and very small and gated with locks which we could not operate without assistance.

Owner's Response: Thank you Arnold for your feedback. It is very helpful to hear from our guests so we can continue to improve our guest experience. Most properties on Kauai are not air conditioned, since the trade winds blow so hard and provide a very cooling breeze through the property. We do offer ceiling fans in every room and additional floor fans in every room, if the trade winds get calmer. I will relay your comments to our cleaning team, so they can address these areas. There are 2 pools to use and they are on the cooler side. In the winter months, the may feel cold, on a cooler day. In Hawaii, the pools generally do not require heating, since it is consistently warm. We are a second floor entry and the benefit of this is no noise from above. However, there are stairs and for an older person, not use to climbing stairs, this can be less desirable vs. noise control from above. We thank you for your feedback and will continue to improve our guest stay experiences! Mahalo,
