Poipu Kapili 54 - Air Conditioned OCEANFRONT Townhome - Can't beat our views

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,850 sq. ft.
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 5 - 14 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 3 full bathrooms, 400 yards from the beach & spectacular ocean views

Located in one of the finest resorts on Kauai, with only 60 units on five beautifully-landscaped acres of Poipu Kapili, this is the perfect home for your family vacation or couples' retreat. With two spacious, air conditioned bed and bath suites plus an additional full bath and sleeping area, complete with luxury finish out, high end furnishings, a fully equipped kitchen, ceiling fans and drop-dead gorgeous views, you will soon forget about the worries of home and office!

You need only look outside to enjoy the ocean views from the living room, dining room kitchen, lanai and master bedroom. What could be better than enjoying a cold beverage while the sun dips into the ocean behind whales breaching or drifting off to sleep in your cozy king bed as the waves crash on the shore?

Perhaps the famous sunsets and the hours of seasonal whale watching are not the adventures you seek! For you, we have a beautiful, short, ocean front walk to the sunny south shore of Kauai’s soft, sandy Poipu Beach. Morning beach walks may find you alone with your thoughts, while the afternoons you will spend snorkeling, diving, swimming, surfing and skim boarding along with Hawaiian Monk Seals, Sea Turtles, and perhaps a dolphin or two who call this area home.

Pack lightly as we have already taken care of your comforts! Beach chairs are provided at the pool and we provide them for your beach time as well. We also provide beach towels.

Have a special request? Just ask. We want you to be at home here (okay, better than at home!). Sunsets and a lifetime worth of memories provided at no additional charge. We own and manage our own property and thus can give you the individual attention that makes the vacation YOURS.

The entirety of Poipu Kapili is a NO SMOKING property. There is no smoking allowed inside our unit or anywhere on the common grounds.

Perfect Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Kauai for almost 20 years, repeating “favorites” and trying out new things, too. One thing we all agree on is this condo is the only place we want to stay when we return. The location is perfect in that it is just a few minutes’ walk to the beach, 6-8 of our favorite restaurants, & a variety of shops. It has everything within reach, but still feels like your own private retreat.

We read other reviews about the small road in between the condo and the ocean and wondered how that would be. I discussed it with the owner before reserving and it was never a problem. On two nights, a small group of locals and tourists gathered on “the wall”, but they were not loud. In fact, I would not have even paid them attention other than what I had read. For help for the future traveler, you should know that you are not “off the beaten path” and you will see people. But, it is nothing worth reporting, especially when you consider how proximate you are to shops, dining, and all the conveniences you want.

The condo was also extremely pleasing! When we walked in, all of the windows were open and it felt like the beautiful Pacific was calling to us! The manager met us to welcome us and go over some really nice things that the condo has, but it was hard to listen as our normally land-locked eyes were mesmerized by the view. But do listen, as the condo has some neat features that we had to call and ask about again because beach brain had set in upon arrival. The manager was always helpful and told us what we needed to know. I would also suggest that if you are going in the summer, you will want a place with A/C.

The condo was so clean and the beds/linens were all high quality. There was nothing that we lacked! There were even full size soaps, shampoos & conditioners in the bathrooms! The kitchen had a Nespresso and every kind of pot, pan, cooking utensil needed. We used the grills which were very convenient (by the pool) and clean. Some days we felt too lazy to hike or explore and even wanted a bit of time off of the beach. We found lots of movies and a few games in the living room so that was a great treat!

One of the most memorable things happened after we left. The owner called to thank us for renting and wanted to know what should be improved! Everything was great - I cannot wait to return next year!!

Beautiful ocean front townhome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week with 3 adults and 2 children. The master bedroom has a beautiful ocean view and the king bed was very comfortable. The back bedroom had two comfortable twin beds and a single blow up mattress as well as a couch that could be slept on. One adult slept on the hide a bed downstairs which had a blow up mattress on it. Both upstairs bedrooms had air conditioners which helped cool us off at night. We used the full kitchen for most all of our meals. It was very well equipped. We loved the Nespresso machine for morning coffee. The condo was very clean and well appointed. We enjoyed being able to use the full size washer and dryer. One great feature is 3 full bathrooms. One is downstairs which is nice when you come in from the beach and pool. We loved the pool.

Plenty of places to sit. It was never crowded. The grounds were beautiful too. You can walk along the ocean to a local place to get coffee or ice cream or go shopping. Just a short drive to Poipu Beach. We would stay here again.

Perfect place for a relaxing and quiet stay in Poipu!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming to Kaui for years and we've tried all the major condos/rentals in Poipu: the Hyatt, Marriott, Kiahuna Plantation condos, etc. This rental was BY FAR the quietest, most relaxing, well stocked and well run place we've tried on the island! The ground floor lanai opens up to the ocean (just on the other side of the road) and it was so relaxing to listen to the waves all day and night. And although there is no beach across from the lanai (just rocks and ocean), the Sheraton beach is just a 5 minute walk down the street and Baby Beach (great for babies and toddlers-- gentle water and no waves!) is about a 12 minute walk. Having the beach a few minutes walk away means that the Poipu Kapili grounds are very quiet and tranquil. The pool was always empty and serene, as were the BBQ pits etc. We never heard a peep from any neighbors! It was the perfect place to bring our toddler and amazingly, she slept great in the upstairs "Surf Room" and napped wonderfully in there every day too. This is in stark contrast to our next rental in Hanalei where it was very noisy all day and night! Having the AC in every room was a nice option too if we felt like we needed it (though honestly, just keeping the doors and windows open for the trade winds to blow through was more than enough to keep the house cool).

Overall Pros:

*Kitchen and bathrooms are newly remodeled and VERY nice

*Kitchen was probably the best well stocked of any vrbo rental we've stayed in

*Owner and property manager kept in touch with us the entire stay and were very fast to respond to/fix any issues

*Ocean view/sounds!

*Private parking spot close to the condo

*Condo is quiet, but several beaches/restaurants/bars are close and in short walking distance

*Provided a list of local events for the week we were staying-- very handy!

*Property manager met us at the condo when we arrived to show us around and provide helpful information-- that was a nice touch!

*Wireless was easy to use and worked great!

*Beds were VERY comfortable

*Fully stocked espresso machine in the kitchen! (this was one of my husband's favorite aspects about the condo)


*Honestly, can't think of many. The only issue we encountered was that the BBQ grills (located very close to the unit!) required coals and these were not provided by the property or unit owner. Just make sure to grab some from Safeway on your way over from the airport!

Looking forward to our next stay in #54!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post such an extensive review. We are delighted your experience was wonderful and we look forward to having you back. Thank you for pointing out about the grills. Hopefully this will help future guests. We are using it to improve our service by including in our welcome packet where the charcoal grills are (and that one needs to provide their own supplies) and the gas grills (by the tennis courts, gas provided by the association). Mahalo!

Stop Lookin and Start Bookin

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! We tried several on the island on this vacation as we are looking for a return trip with our family. This is the place and we have already booked the return! The pictures are all accurate, but don't do it justice. It is beautifully decorated and everything is comfortable and attend to. The robes, towels, and linens were of high quality and very comfortable. The master was a king and a very good mattress and the back bedroom had two twins that were also very comfortable. The kitchen had anything one needed to use to cook, but we ended up walking to all of our meals. One of our favorites was Plantation Gardens. There were 5 or 6 other excellent, high end restaurants to walk to, but nothing required having resort wear so we were always very comfortable. We traveled around the island and enjoyed other beaches, but the one right here was our favorite! While we were there we also did a lot of snorkeling and found that one of our favorites was just outside of the condo. I'm not sure of the name of it, but the owner mentioned it out to us as being full of turtles and eels. We also lucked into seeing a monk seal and an octopus! The home truly has every amenity including a large sized washer and dryer which came in handy. It was also nice because the owner was available to answer our questions and also there was someone who met us in our home and was available to assist us whenever we had questions. A plus which didn't occur to us to inquire about is that we had a dedicated parking space that was very close. We found this not to be true elsewhere. Finally, we spent a lot more time on the porch than we intended to because the view was so beautiful and peaceful and it was a great place for the sunset drink. I just wish we had come during whale season as the neighbors said this is a great place to see them play.

Had a wonderful time!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was in a very convenient and pretty place. Our group was able to scuba dive, golf and hit the beach on one day with just one car. Condo has everything you need. Only small drawback is the road right in front. What we found in Kauai is that "No Parking " actually means "Park Here". Surfers and others with loud bass in their Cars like the area!

House well stocked and lovely. Had a great time! Loved the use of the gas grill, fresh herbs and snorkeling / beach gear! Thanks so much for a memorable vacation!

Owner's Response: I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay I also am thankful for the kind emails you sent during your stay. I am sorry for the disturbance and only wish that I would have heard about it real-time or on one of our earlier discussions vs. thru a post-checkout review. Our on-island management team could have assisted. The wall is a beautiful place to watch the sunset. However, for future guests reading this, please note that these guests did not call the police or our on-island management team. The Kauai police respond to disturbances of the peace such as this. While our island is a safe place, please know that just as in your own homes, if something is amiss please report it! We value our guests and Kauai values tourists. Help us to ensure you have a fantastic trip by giving us and our on-island team the chance to correct problems.
