About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Sunset Kahili #406 Condo Home Away From Home

ALOHA, GUEST! Enjoy expansive ocean view from every room, lie in bed and watch whales spout and rainbows touching the sea, white water on the rocks and sunsets from the private lanai, lush greenery and mountain peaks from your kitchen window and front door…

This ample one-bedroom unit, Sunset Kahili #406, offers all the amenities of clean and comfortable home, fully equipped, including: a full-service kitchen; washer/dryer inside; unlimited free Wi-Fi in unit; HDTV, DVD and CD and cassette players; music, movies, books, games and puzzles; picnic supplies, coolers, beach towels, chairs and mats. Sleeping 4 is easy with a very comfortable king-bed and living room sofa that folds out to genuinely comfy queen.

Yours is on the fourth floor of a five-story building with elevator and free onsite parking, one of only 35 units that share a sparkling pool, lounge area, BBQ with picnic bench, and recreation room with unlimited free Wi-Fi access, and library of books, DVDs and puzzles.

Short stroll to world-famous Brennecke’s Beach and Poipu Beach Park and family-suitable sheltered inlet for wading and snorkeling, or to hiking trails, Grand Hyatt, Shipwreck Beach and beyond. Kukui'ula Village, right in Poipu, offers the most exciting shopping and dining on the island

Ideal central location for trips up the west coast to Koke'e, Polihale and Waimea State Parks or Barking Sands Beach, or around the island to the Wailua River, North Shore, Princeville, and the spectacular Na Pali Coast--and all the beauty and fun in between!

You won’t find an ocean-front perch like Sunset Kahili at this price anywhere else on the island, and once you’ve stayed, the sea’s allure will bid you return as often as you are able to Mele Moana, your home away from home in Kauaian paradise!

Why Ellen Hicks Rhoda chose Poipu

Grew up in Southern California, first traveled to, and fell in love with, Hawaii in 1972. Stayed at Sunset Kahili on honeymoon and, as soon as it became possible, bought this perfect fourth floor unit for a home away from home in Kauai. My favorite place on earth!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and two year old. This property is very large and spacious! Huge bedroom, bathroom and living areas. Perfect 3 minute walk to Kukuiula Shopping Village. Semi-Near Baby beach. A little bit dated bathroom and Kitchen but was well stocked in both areas and we found the pros definitely outweighed any cons. Lovely garden exterior. Washer/Dryer very useful, and pool was lovely. We would definitely stay here again!

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Mele Moana and it was wonderful once again! Best location in Poipu, easy walk to beaches and trails to go watch the sunrise, watch the Humpbacks from the deck, and enjoy a fully stocked condo! I highly recommend it!

Mahalo Ellen!

You should stay here!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our 9 month old, and I stayed for three nights. It was so nice. The bed is comfy. Ellen was so nice and helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. She even has a pack n play there, so you don’t need to worry about bringing yours, if you’re bringing a baby. The outlook from the lanai was beautiful. It’s in the perfect spot for sunsets, whale watching, or just sitting out there to eat a meal. When you’ve never been somewhere before, you worry that the location is not going to be a good one. Poipu was such a nice area in general. Quiet, beautiful, and close to lots of restaurants and shops but not too close that you have all that traffic. The only worry we(actually only my husband)had was the fact that there was no A/C. We did NOT miss it nor did we need it. During the day, you can have the windows open to let that perfect breeze in and close them at night. It stays a great temperature. I would, and have already, recommend this place to anyone going to Kauai.

Lovely sunsets, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Ellen made the whole process very easy. The property was lovely and the condo lanai faces the sunset. My husband and I loved enjoying our supper outside and we could even see humpback whales spouting from the balcony! It's just a short walk to poipu beach where we saw a turtle while snorkeling. We also enjoyed Shipwreck beach and Gillans beach which are short drives away. All and all we had a wonderful vacation and there were no issues getting deposit back either. Highly recommend!

Very very well maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

Unit 406 was a pleasure to stay at during my Christmas stay. The property was clean and nicely decorated. There were ample supplies and really nothing left to do but enjoy the incredible views of the Pacific, relax and go for a swim. I would definitely stay at this property again in a heartbeat. Thank you Ellen! Craig

Perfect getaway for one-two people

  • 5 of 5

This condo was light and airy and never felt cramped even tho its footprint was small. Every night we sat on the balcony and enjoyed a tropical sunset, as did the other occupants. The kitchen was fully equipped; we made our own breakfasts and went out for dinners. Loved the location, beaches were close, and we ventured out for hiking. Would definitely come back again.
