Spacious luxury condo, steps to the beach
Manualoha #201 is a spacious luxury condo in the heart of the the prime Poipu beach area. It doesn't get any lovelier than this Poipu Kai resort beauty. This is a ground floor unit with a bedroom loft. The downstairs bedroom has a king bed and a full master bath. The kitchen is nicely equipped. There is a second bathroom downstairs plus a washer and dryer. The living room opens onto a lovely lanai surrounded by tropical landscaping. Upstairs is the loft which includes a king bed plus two twin beds.There is a balcony deck just off the loft with a view of the ocean.
Our condo is a short walk from the palm fringed Brennecke's Beach and famous Poipu Beach State Park and is also a well situated home base from which to explore the amazing Garden Island.

About Mark or Ann Thompson
We are Frank and Holly Alling and have been enjoying trips to Kauai since 1990 when we became part owners of another condo in Manualoha. We love the area so much we have purchased this condo as our second home and are now happy to share it with our guests.
Mark or Ann Thompson purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Mark or Ann Thompson chose Poipu
The Poipu Kai is so quiet and well maintained, the tennis courts and pools are nearby but the biggest draw is that the beach is so close. We love being able to walk to Brennecke's beach with a drink in our hand and enjoy the sunsets and soft tradewinds.
What makes this Condo unique
This is a privately owned condo. It is well maintained because we, the owners, want our second home to be kept in top condition.

Great location, comfortable accommodation, owner & property manager very helpful.
All positives for Manualoha 201. Plenty of room for the six of us, my wife & me in the master bedroom downstairs, our son & daughter in law & their 2 kids in the loft upstairs (one queen or king + 2 twins). Fans & ventilation from lanai upstairs keep things cool. We’ve got all we need in terms of towels, bedding, kitchen stuff, kid stuff, boogie boards etc. 2 newly renovated bathrooms a big plus. Good privacy—nobody above us. Property manager very accessible and helpful.
Location is wonderful. The Manualoha pool is very close & the main Poipu Kai pool is quite close too. An easy walk (5 minutes) to the beaches. We’ve been coming to this condo for all but one of the last 6 years & look forward to more visits in the future.
Thanks you for this review! We are delighted you enjoyed our condo and hope that you can return once again in the near future! --F. and H. Alling, owners
Lovely condo in great location
This was a great space for our family of four. There are no units above or below, and the entrance and lanai are tucked away so it feels private. The unit is well equipped, down to cleaning supplies that allowed us to keep the condo in good shape. There were boogie boards, beach chairs, tennis racquets and a cooler in the closet. (The owners even left an ice pack for the cooler in the freezer.) The bathrooms have been redone, and I understand the kitchen will be soon. The owners did a nice job with the bathrooms so I imagine the kitchen will be very nice. Our kids enjoyed the loft space where they slept on twin beds tucked under the eaves. We would definitely return if we are ever back on Kauai.
One note: The property's pool was freezing. We didn't see anyone use it the whole time we were there. In talking to a local, it seemed that most Kauai places don't heat their pools which is a shame because the Manualoha one is beautiful and we would have liked to hang out there.
Another wonderful stay in Poipu Kauai
Have stayed at several places in Poipu & Manualoha is at the top of our list. My wife & I have been going to Poipu for the last couple of years because we have a young son & it's a perfect area for children.
The beaches (Brennecke's, poipu beach park) are less than a five minute walk away & you can see the water from the lovely 2nd floor porch. Lots of shopping & dining within walking/short driving distance.
The unit itself was very cozy & well equipped (beach chairs, boogie boards, plenty of equipment for cooking, etc.). Keeping the 2nd floor porch open at night created a lovely breeze & outdoor sounds (birds, ocean, with no noise from neighbors) to provide a relaxing sleep. Bathrooms were modern/recently updated. Kitchen slightly dated but very functional.
Manualoha is the closest Poipu Kai complex to the beach. The Weber gas grills were brand new & cleaned daily by the maintenance crew--we used them almost every evening! There are two pools available--the Manualoha pool is nicest & provides a clear view of the beautiful daily sunset over poipu beach
Owners were very quick to respond to any queries we had & provided clear instructions on how to find & enter the unit.
Overall, a terrific stay--only wish we could've stayed longer than the week! Definitely recommend this unit, and will repeat in the future.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our condo! Thank you for your review and we hope to hear from you again soon, for your next stay in paradise!
Location on the island is very central. Location in the condo village is really convenient to both pool and beach.
All amenities were exactly what was portrayed (laundry, WiFi, kitchen, parking, key access, etc.).
Only recommendation is that given the number of people the place can house, more towels are needed in the home.
Spacious, quite, private condo walking distance to boogie board heaven!
This place was perfect. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy our family time close to the beach and gorgeous pool. Fully equipped with everything. It has a nice kitchen, large remodeled tile bathroom adjacent to the master bedroom, smaller bathroom in the hall, washer, dryer, and fans in every room (which really helped us sleep) huge airy living room, wifi. Every morning birds would wake us and we would sit on the patio while we had breakfast. The condo is spacious and airy and nicely appointed. We loved the upstairs loft bedroom with the porch. We could hear waves crashing at night. We never hear any sound from our neighbors it felt very private. Kauai is amazing and with a short drive we got to see everything. We definitely want to come back right to this rental!
Love Poi Pu Area
We had a very nice stay at Manualoha. The condo is in a great location. It is close to the beach and it is easy to get around to the restaurants and shops. We had some excellent walks and don't miss going to the beach for sunset. We had a little bit of a rough beginning to our stay but the owner Frank was great in taking care of the issue. I very much enjoyed the loft and the patio off of it. We cooked several meals, the kitchen is well equipped. I would definitely go back to this condo.
Thanks! We hope you return some day soon!
Our condo is located in the beautiful Poipu Kai resort which is lushly landscaped and close to the beaches of the sunny south shore of Kauai. You can stroll down the garden path and be at the beach in just a minute or two.
