About the property

This Beautiful One-bedroom Has Bay, Ocean, And Mountain Views. Enjoy It All!

Our comfortable, third-floor, south shore condo is right ON the ocean so you will SEE --and HEAR-- the sound of the surf as soon as you open your front door. The condo, with stylish, contemporary furniture, boasts a comfortable California king bed. Relax "at home" and enjoy the ocean while sitting inside or out on your lanai. Snorkel with turtles right in front of the condo (we sometimes see Eagle Rays in our bay, too)! This is one of the best shore dive sites on the island and our building is consistently rated as one of the best. The condo is nicely furnished so you can get down to the business of relaxing in comfort upon arrival. Come on in and make yourself at home! Most guests who stay in our Rising Sun Suite *do* return, btw....

About denise Ball

We first ventured to Kaua'i in 1998 and never looked back! After many visits to the island, and managing our oceanfront condo rentals from the SF Bay area, we left Silicon Valley and moved to the island in 2002. BEST decisions we've ever made -- except our marriage 29 years ago.

denise Ball purchased this condo in 2015

Why denise Ball chose Poipu

You can not get any closer to the ocean, and our building is just a few minutes drive to famous Po'ipu Beach Park, the Grand Hyatt, and many other well-known resorts. The Botanical Garden and Spouting Horn are minutes away, as are a multitude of restaurants and shops. Yet our building is "off the beaten path," which means peaceful, quiet serenity....

What makes this condo unique

Hop on the elevator to the third floor, enter your front door, and you are looking at OCEAN. Your private lanai consists of clear, plexi glass for unobstructed views, so no peeking through the railing. Watch the turtles frolick and feed -- from the lanai, OR from inside your condo.

This place is amazing! Beautiful ocean views, fall asleep to the waves crashing, very clean condo and we loved sitting on the patio watching the turtles swim. Within walking distance to many great restaurants but yet the area is quiet and relaxing. We are in Maui now and already miss it!

Great location, right on the water.

  • 4 of 5

Property is nice, right next to a good snorkeling area. A little noisy with the roosters and frogs, but the surf sound was lovely

Terrific locations in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the perfect place to watch sunrises and turtles. It is conveniently located near restaurants and shopping and is easily accessed via a short walk. The decor in the unit is contemporary, a welcome relief from all the rattan furniture that you typically find in Hawaii. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need to cook "at home" when you are tired of eating out. Best of all is that the owner is super accommodating and willing to help with any questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will return.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here and both really enjoyed the unit. This unit is one of just a few in the building with the shades between the bedroom and front room (as opposed to a solid wall). This provided for a cool breeze and the sound of the ocean into the bedroom.

The view from the lanai is beautiful and includes the ocean, cove, Prince Kuhio park across the street, and the mountains. The lanai faces east, so we did have to leave the unit to watch the sunset. However, on the plus side, when we came back to the unit after a day in the sun, it was always cool and restful. We had no need for air conditioning.

There is good snorkeling with easy access to the west of the building (Lawaii beach). The snorkeling in the cove outside the unit (PK's beach) is good also, but the beach is rocky and entrance to the water is a bit tricky (enter to the right of the rock about 6 feet out from the beach and dive shallowly at first). Another great spot to snorkel was a short walk to the East at Whaler's Cove. There is a public access point in the Whalers Cove resort parking lot. There are generally three or four sea turtles in the area.

There is a shopping area about a mile away with several good choices of restaurant options (including happy hours) and shops. On Wednesday afternoons there is a food market featuring locally grown produce, meats, and prepared food items.

Denise was great to work with, responded promptly to questions and kept us informed with driving directions, restaurant recommendations, etc. We would be happy to rent from Denise again on a future visit.
