2 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.

Owner very receptive
We had a few VERY MINOR issues and the owner went out of her way to fix them. Owner wants to know when there is the slightest problem.
This is a lovely property with beautiful ocean views. Our son and new daughter-in-law loved the master suite. All of the beds in the condo are very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped.
The beach is a short walk (maybe 1/3 mile?) away. The salt water pool was never crowded. Several times, we were the only people in it.
The owner provides tennis and snorkeling and other sports equipment--a nice perk!
My only complaint is that this unit does not accommodate more than 4 people very well. The condo itself is very roomy. But the sofa sleeper is downstairs, and the bedrooms are both upstairs. There would be plenty of room in the "junior suite" for another bed or futon if the sectional chaise were removed. Also, a couple of extra (folding?) chairs would be useful for outdoor dining when there are more people (there were 5 of us). We didn't like moving a chair from the dining room because the indoor furnishings were all so nice!
Thank you for your review. I appreciate your comments and would like to respond to future guests about your concerns so they don’t suffer needlessly. As the reviewer mentions, I called them several times to welcome them and check on them during their visit. Both times they mentioned small issues – two items they couldn’t find in the kitchen. The first one I helped them locate in the condo. The second was a church key type can opener which we didn’t have, but I said I would immediately send to the condo. They said they preferred not to be bothered so I had the manager put it in after they left. In neither call did they mention the desire for other chairs. If they had, I would have directed them to the closet where we have two folding chairs for exactly this purpose. The patio has 4 chairs at the table along with 2 chaise lounges as well (she doesn’t specifically say, but there are 6 chairs in the dining room as well). With respect to the bedding, what she mentions “not liking” is exactly how we have it listed on the website. So…? But interestingly, if she really wanted someone to sleep in the guest bedroom we do have the fold out mat she mentions. But again, this was not something she asked. Future guests – we want your business and we want to attend to you. But if you don’t ask us, how can we know?
A Home You Will Want To Return To!
Greetings, fellow vacationer!
You are reading reviews seeking the answer to the very important question,
"Is Poipu Kapili 54 the vacation home for us?".
We say, YES!
Pack light, this home has all you will need for your stay and more!
The home is clean and well maintained!
The kitchen is well stocked, including a few spices, oil, coffee...check the cupboards before going shopping.
The living room is cozy and has a great movie collection...although we didn't have the TV on once. We instead sat outside with our binoculars to spot whales and dolphins.
The bedrooms have comfortable beds and linens. Each bedroom has an A/C unit, but with the windows opened and the great fan system we did not have need of them.
All bathrooms are stocked with good quality towels and shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.
The laundry room lacks for nothing. You will find an ample supply of beach going items stored here as well.
The grounds are beautiful!
The beach is an easy 5 minute walk on a paved walk way. A small shopping mall is a 15ish minute walk.
Belle (the owner) and her management team get a 5+ star from our group!!!
We hope to return to Poipu Kapili 54!!!
Great experience; would definitely stay again
Very comfortable, ocean front property. Owner and management both made us feel welcome and taken care of. Great kitchen, lots of amenities. Loved the whole house fans to cool off -only needed the AC once or twice. Would definitely stay again!
Relaxing, quiet home perfect for our active, bustling trip!
There are lots of places to choose from and we had a tough time deciding between this and a few others. Before booking I spoke with owners of two different properties and tried to speak with the others I was looking at, but they were less than enthusiastic with answering all of my questions. Eventually I chose this place and we were delighted to learn that we made the best decision! Pictures can be deceiving, but we found everything to be at least what we had hoped for and most things to be the best! One surprise was that we were able to leave the windows open and ignore the air conditioning. It was great as a back up but they have a whole house fan system that did the trick. The beds were very comfortable with nice linens and the condo was meticulously clean. The bathrooms were fully outfitted with ample shampoo, conditioner and soaps. The kitchen was not large, but it had everything we needed for all of our meals - many of which we ate outside enjoying the ocean. We especially enjoyed going out on the patio for sun downers! While the home and its surroundings were comfortable, quiet and relaxing, we were actually on an active adventure and found the location to be great to enjoy lots of things on the island. We particularly enjoyed hiking in Waimea Canyon (lots of ups and downs without many services nearby so bring everything you might need), ziplining, paddle boarding, kayaking and rappelling. The North Shore was great, too. We didn't quite heed the advice about the traffic in the Kapaa area. Be sure to go very early and stay late, make a whole day of it or you'll spend a bunch of time in traffic in Kapaa. A few evenings we were so exhausted that we couldn't get up the energy to go out. We were delighted to find a HUGE stock of movies to watch in the condo - lots of names you've heard of. They seemed to be heavy on the action, not much drama or romance. This was perfect for our group, but be prepared if you are on a girls' trip or have girls. The pool at the condo is also nice and refreshing. It isn't heated, but it is comfortable. And there are some tables, too and both gas and charcoal grills so we enjoyed hanging out there and cooking dinner at the same time. Which reminds me, there are a few grocery stores nearby, but best to stock up near the airport. Kauai is our favorite island. Now we have our favorite place to return!
Perfect Place to Stay in Paradise!
Belle's place is perfect! We were a group of 6 and all loved it. The condo has everything you need from the well appointed kitchen to the comfortable beds (even the pullout sofa was comfortable). The views and the sound of the ocean were to die for. The condo is perfectly located in the middle of the island next to the ocean and is on the sunny south shore. Close to dining and shops and beaches. We were able to see all of the Island with relatively short drives. Belle and her team were also willing to do whatever we needed to make our stay great! Very helpful and friendly. The condo is luxurious and everything in it is solid and well made. We really felt like we were in paradise. We would definitely love to stay there again!
Awesome place & couldn’t be better!!!
This condo is a great place in a great location. It has a well appointed kitchen with very comfortable furnishings. You can enjoy the ocean breeze and the beautiful sunsets every evening from the lanai. The owner and the property manager were fantastic. We definitely recommend and hope to stay there again!!!
