About Barbara Bentley Stearn

This is a photo of us at the edge of the property (Poipu Sands property) looking toward Shipwrecks Beach. We are a Northern California family with roots in Los Angeles and Illinois. While Tad had traveled to Hawaii many times, the islands were a somewhat new experience for Barbara. We both fell in love with Kauai on our first there trip together, even with our 16 month in tow! We decided that if the planets aligned, we would have a property there that we could enjoy and share with others. Well here we are...thank you planets!

Barbara Bentley Stearn purchased this condo in 2016

Why Barbara Bentley Stearn chose Poipu

After combing the island in all directions - each one amazing, by the way - we decided to land in sunny Poipu. We had stayed at Poipu Sands before, and walked around all the Poipu Kai and other properties. Poipu Sands has a certain solitude to it...close to the ocean waves but not too close...fantastic grassy grounds great for little feet to visible power lines or reminders of home. Just a true resort feel. And, the close proximity to the Grand Hyatt for dining, luau, and other amenities, is a major bonus. We looked at nearly 20 properties, and landed at Poipu Sands.

Beautiful condo in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a well kept, well stocked condo in an absolutely perfect location. Walk to the Starbucks at the Grand Hyatt for coffee in the morning, and spend the day at Shipwreck beach which is a few steps away. Or follow the trails to Poipu Beach and stay for dinner at Brenneke’s. You will find everything you need for a day at the beach in the foyer closet. The condo is very spacious and the master suite has vaulted ceilings and a private balcony with views over the pool down to the beach. The owner is extremely responsive and accommodating. Thank you — we will be back!

Good location

  • 3 of 5

Overall this is an ok condo. It is a bit dated and in need of updating. The location is good and has a bit of an ocean view. The grounds are well kept and the pool is ok. This was our fourth stay on Kauai and I think there are better values. Many of the condos in this development have been upgraded and I think this one is due. Spending a little money on better patio furnishings and some general items in the kitchen would be well spent. The carpet is getting a bit worn, there was a bit of a musty smell but it was also very humid while we were staying there. Not bad but not great either. The owner was very pleasant when we needed to call.

Well equipped condo in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was spacious, clean, comfortable and in a great location. The condo had everything we needed for cooking as well as great beach accessories ( chairs, umbrella, cooler bag and boogie board). The pool was close and a lovely tempersture. We loved being able to walk to the beach. Barbara was wonderful to deal with. I would highly recommend this unit!!!!

Poipu Sands #225 was a nice place to come rest our feet after playing all day in Kauai.

  • 4 of 5

The owner of the condo was very easy to reach both before and during our stay at Poipu Sands. Exceedingly warm and helpful would be a good way to describe Barbara.

The condo itself was spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals. In a perfect world some sharper knives would have been great, but these seem to be a hard to find item in vacation rentals.

The view from the top lanai was very nice, and the condo is close to the path that leads to the walkway along the water. Also, the pool is located directly in front of the condo which was very convenient.

Parking was easy to find and never an issue. The complex itself we found to be very peaceful. Not overly crowded or buzzing with constant activity as has been the case in many of the condos we have stayed at on Maui.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the island of Kauai and our stay at #225 Poipu Sands. Looking forward to another trip there sometime sooner than later.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jade! It was a pleasure to have you as a guest:) We also noticed the knife dilemma when we visited the first week in April and purchased some better knives. So sorry they were not there for your visit. We truly appreciate your feedback! Mahalo! Barbara
