The apartment was wonderful — great access to everything, perfect quieter location on the North shore, and an incredible view. Great, clean, large apartment! We really enjoyed our long weekend and will definitely be back!

Beautiful view but outdated condo

  • 2 of 5

The view from this condo really is spectacular. The sunsets we saw from the deck were amazing and the location is great. The beach access is convenient and you can walk to the St Regis beach / restaurants which is nice.

All that said the condo has not been kept well. There is no AC which makes sleeping in 85 degree weather with 90% humidity difficult for those used to central air. And because there is no AC the condo is very musty smelling. The fan lights are full of dead bugs, frequently used handles are worn and grimy, and metal fixtures like the towel holders are rusty. Really in need of some updates and a good scrubbing.

Owner's Response: Aloha Francesca, and mahalo for your review. We're pleased that you enjoyed the views and location of our condo, and we're sorry about your disappointments. Please note that we specifically indicate that this condo, as with most homes on Kauai, doesn't have air conditioning. The entire Pu'u Poa complex was not designed for it, as all the units face the ocean and get excellent breezes that cool the homes. Opening windows helps. According to the National Weather Service, the average nightly temperature during your 3 days was 75 F, with humidity around 62%. Since we are in the sub-tropics, bugs and rust are to be expected. We deep clean the unit as necessary, including the light fixtures, but sometimes we have to wait for a gap in stay dates. Rust is not grime.

I didn't want to leave! Great views, comfortable furnishings, ample kitchenware and cooking utensils. Outdoor furniture was nice and a grill for BBQ. This was a nice complex. Great beach below!

Dramatic Bali Hai & Sunset Views From This Deluxe Puu Poa Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation stay in this luxurious Puu Poa home that features direct straight-ahead iconic Bali Hai views, along with a large side dining room picture window and kitchen over sink windows that provide great views as well of the surrounding reef and ocean to the east. Very attractively remodeled with comfortable furniture and thoughtful amenities. Both of its ocean decks are open, providing an unobstructed Bali Hai vista to their interior master bedroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen.
