About Kristin Ellingson

We purchased the condo in 1977 and it has been enjoyed and loved by four generations.

Over 30 years of family vacation fun has been a true delight for our family. The youngest member of the clan is my eighteen year old daughter who growing up in the mountains of Wyoming, an avid skier, learned to surf on Kauai. The condo has truly been paradise for our very large clan, we love it.

Why Kristin Ellingson chose Poipu

It is the best location of any condo complex in the Hawaiin Islands, we are surrounded by the beautiful Pacific Ocean on three sides and are the closest condos to the Ocean in Hawaii.

A DEEP DISCOUNTED CAR IS AVAILABLE THRU A MAJOR RENTAL CAR COMPANY.

What makes this condo unique

The condo jets out the farthest to the ocean from the building getting you even closer to spectacular views to the east, south and west. Perfect for whale watching, spotting giant sea turtles, enjoying the surfers, and viewing amazing sunsets. The condo has wrap around glass, floor to ceiling windows in the dining area. New furniture as of October 2013 and a recently remodeled kitchen (November 2014) and bathroom.

Because of the wrap around windows, a great airflow thru the condo.

A great kitchen.

Tinted windows keep the heat out before it gets inside the condo

and allows no impediment of the spectacular views.

Beautiful view and excellent communication from owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Kristin's condo! Kristin was very responsive to all questions and provided info on things to do while in Kauai. The condo had an amazing view, so close to the ocean we could see turtles swimming and enjoyed watching the surfers daily. There is a nice snorkeling spot around the corner, a baby beach we used with our infant a short (<5 min) walk, and shops/restaurants also within walking distance. We stayed cool with the ocean breeze with windows open day and night. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Kristin!

Highly Recommended Best Kauai Condo

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in different condo's and this has been my favorite. The views are spectacular, especially at sunset. This condo has a corner location where you view is not blocked. It had everything you could think of throughout the condo. There is no ac but there are plenty of fans and the breeze kept us cool. The condo is a short walk to the Beach House restaurant which should not be missed. It is also close to two shopping centers with great shops and restaurants. It was quiet and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Every room is very comfortable and well kepted up. The owner was pleasant and easy to work with and provided all the pre information needed for a comfortable stay. I would stay here again.

Awesome view and clean well/equipped condo.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was exactly what is advertised. Kitchen is well stocked. Condo was clean and well maintained with awesome views. The beach chairs and coolers were a great extra for our week stay.

I would suggest more bath towels and wash clothes added to prevent washing everyday.

I would recommend this condo and will stay here again.

Wonderful View & Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over Christmas and had the best time. You really can't beat the view and we spent a lot of time gazing at the lovely ocean and bright stars at night. The condo's common areas were undergoing some construction which made for a few noisy afternoons but overall the facility/grounds were quiet and peaceful. The condo is in good shape and clean. The only complaint was from my two daughters who said the bed they shared was very squeaky and they kept waking up when anyone moved. Nevertheless, it was a great rental overall. I would recommend this unit to my friends and family. We would love to come back again soon.

Owner's Response: Aloha Sara! Thank you for your feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I wanted everyone to know I have replaced the squeaky bed frame (April 2017) so future guests can sleep with just the sound of ocean.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean, had a great view over the water, no AC but the ocean breezes kept everything comfortable, and was fully stocked with dishes, beach towels, etc. We did get an early knock on the door our first AM from maintenance regarding a water leak in a condo below us but he was pleasant and waited until we were ready to leave to check for the plumbing issue. We would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Tammy, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I wish I would have known about the water leak. I will give the maintenance manager a call. The fans do a great job with keeping the breezes flowing through the condo. I've never felt the need for AC. However, all Kuhio Shores recently voted to allow owners to install AC into their units. We are in the primary stages of this project. I have it on my list of things to do. Please let me know if you plan to return to Kauai! Did you get to see many whales? You were there for the beginning of the whale migration. It's one of the best things about winter on Kauai. Aloha

The reef in front of the condo complex is inhabited by a colony of giant sea turtles that are quite playful and fun to snorkel with. 3 of the best surf breaks in Hawaii, PK's, Centers and Acid Drop are right in front of tne condo.
