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 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,

My family and I spent 12 days in this lovely home. The location was great! Close to shopping and many many restaurants. As for the closeness to the beach.. Not so close. We were told the beach was within 250 yards. Well, not from the complex we were in. We drove most days only because it was quite a hike with two small children and all of our beach gear. It definitely was not a 5 minute walk!

We also went through tbd rentals, not the owners directly. We dealt with Jake and he was not very responsive to our emails or phone calls. Always seemed to be away from the office. Our biggest complaint was that we were not notified of the construction going on in the parking lot where we were supposed to park! The entire time, the parking lot was closed which meant we had to park on the street and tromp through uneven asphalt to get to our Villa. It made it very difficult for my Mom, 86 years old, and my two grandchildren ages 4 years and 15 months. Not to mention that the tractors and concrete smashers started at much for listening to the beautiful birds singing in the morning. This work went on until 5pm each day! It just would have been nice to be fore warned, as we would have definitely chosen another place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Doodah. As the owner, I am not sure who TB rentals are, nor do we know Jake. Sometimes outside vacation rental agencies do not have the most up to date information or may not be familiar with the property and location at all. Our VRBO site clearly states the time it takes to walk to the beach on the greenbelt, which is about 5 min. I guess Jake was guessing with his 250 yards answer. We also had provided notice to our rental mgmt. company, regarding the parking lot paving, of which the dates for this work were constantly changing. Booking directly with an owner through the VRBO site is the best way to get up to date info and updates. The owners also are motivated to quickly reply to your needs during your stay. We want you to have a wonderful time. We can not always control every aspect of things going on around the complex, like the paving project. But, we can share that information with you in advance, so you are aware of these things. I am sorry that your vacation stay was not ideal. But, we certainly hope that you might consider booking again in the future, for a discounted stay and also consider booking directly with us, the owners, so that we can be more available to help you with your needs. I am sorry that Jake and TB rentals were not able to be of greater assistance to you, as your chosen method, to book your accommodations. I hope you provided them with your feedback also, as they get paid to book and support your vacation stay. Mahalo for your feedback!

Fantastic Condo for Our Extended Family with Various Ages!

  • 5 of 5

For the past few years, my extended family (my husband and three young kids, my sister, her husband and 2-year old and my parents (aka Grandma & Grandpa)) have been talking about taking a trip to Hawaii. It was no small feat to find a place that suited everyone, ages 16 months to 68 years old. Kauai-Five-O more than exceeded our expectations! The location is ideal - we were able to walk to Poipu Beach daily, a perfect beach for younger and older kids alike. The condo was also located on the "Green Belt" which allowed us to walk to the Hyatt for breakfast, as well as various dinner and shopping locations along the main road. In regards to the condo was perfect! Everyone had their own rooms - including the kids. We were able to put our young kids to bed, and stay up late to play games and chat. The condo also had several pools and hot tubs, as well as BBQ's for us to use throughout our stay. And the closet had a wonderful array of beach towels, boogie boards, coolers, sand toys etc. for our use at the pool and the beach. The owner was fantastic to work with, and we are already looking forward to booking our next stay at Kauai-Five-O. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

My husband and I took our family as well as my in-laws to Kauai for vacation and needed a nice size condo. We found "Kauai Five-O" and thought it would be perfect. We were so RIGHT! We booked the condo through VRBO and were very pleased with the response from the owner, Jon. He answered all of our questions and provided us with a lot of information about the surrounding area. My family loves to play a lot outdoor sports and my husband and I rarely miss a day at the gym. Jon informed us about the tennis courts and the fitness center that are located less than a 1/2 mile away from the condo. We only paid $10 per day to use the amenities and it was worth every penny! Of course our favorite place was Red Salt. It is a restaurant that is located a short drive from the condo. If you go, you need to try their Mango Margarita! Thank you, Jon, for making our trip to Kauai, a trip to remember!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are happy that you and your in-laws had a wonderful time in Kauai. The pools and tennis are nice to have so close and the addition of the Poipu Athletic Club has been a nice option for our guests, who want to maintain their workout routine, while on vacation. We hope that you will come back again to enjoy Poipu and we greatly appreciate the comments in your review of the property. Aloha,
