My husband, youngest son and I stayed here for a week and the home was spectacular. The rooms are big, the bathrooms are conveniently located around the house and the open floor plan is just lovely. The whole space is bright and airy and beautifully decorated. Everything about the house is extremely comfortable.
We loved sitting on the lanai in the early morning, watching all the birds as the sky brightened. We drove all over the island each day and the location was perfect for shopping, great food and visiting the beaches.
At night we'd head back outside to read and relax and soak in the peace. I confess I wasn't sure what staying on a golf course would be like, but it was wonderful and we would happily stay here again and again.
Great property, as good or better than the pictures. Clean, comfortable, quiet. Good location. Easy check in. Access to the health/tennis club was great. Would definitely stay there again.
If you want the fun sucked out of your vacation, then yes rent this place! We were extremely disappointed by staying at this home. We didn’t read the contract carefully because we vacation all the time and never have any problems with the rentals. The property sleeps 6 and there was six of us at this home and were there for my nephew’s wedding. Other family members rented homes at the same golf course and had great experiences. When you go on a vacation, especially with family, and renting a home, chances are that at some point, everyone gets together. We got together at the house one evening to have a meal together. Before we knew it, the rental agency’s property manager called my husband, saying that our guest must leave. My husband told him that we just made dinner so they will leave asap. There was no music or drinking. In less than 15 minutes after the call, my husband received a long text message from the rental agency’s property manager saying that the police will be called and that we will all be kicked out, including the original 6 renters. Come to find out, the property manager is great friends with one of the neighbors near the rental property and has them in charge of keeping an eye 24/7 on the property we had rented. Several neighbors said that the police is always called on all the people renting this property. Mind you, there was no music or drinking but just an extra few cars at the driveway which didn’t even block anyone.
We picked this home because of the great reviews but sadly, we only slept at this home and couldn’t enjoy it at all. There’s nothing wrong with having rules but had they said that “THE 6 PEOPLE ONLY AT ALL TIME IS STRICTLY ENFORCED” , then we would have never rented this property. So beware that if a seventh person stops by for a visit, the property manager will be informed by his best friend within the neighborhood and you all will be threatened with getting kicked out and losing your money.
As far as cleanliness, the bed sheets, pillow cases, and towels all smelled like mildew. We had to wash them before using but the smell was still present. Windows and window frames were dusty. Their washing machine made all of our clothes smell like mildew. For the high cost, there are much much better properties and rental agencies.
If you want to be on the Sourh side this is the perfect location. Beautiful quiet neighborhood literally minutes from everything! Markets, shops, restaurants & beaches all so close! We really enjoyed having access to the Athletic club as well. Really great gym/fitness facilities everything you need. The pool and bar/restaurant there are great as well.
This home was beautiful inside and out. The patio overlooking the fourth hole of the golf course was very peaceful. It was a very enjoyable time with our children and spouses together celebrating our 33rd anniversary. We would definitely stay here again.
Had a fabulous stay ! Great quiet neighborhood, comfortable beds, very clean, fully equipped kitchen and a wonderful outdoor shower! The only thing we wished for were bikes to use. Bike rentals are hard to find and far away from the property.
This house was the perfect size for six. We have four boys. Between them they had two rooms to share & each had their own bathroom. There was plenty of space for everyone. The outdoor shower was especially nice for cleaning off before coming inside. The kitchen was nicely stocked with cooking oil, spices, & every utensil you would need. The chess table was a huge hit for us!
The house is located on a cozy golf course and is minutes from the ocean and other attractions. The home is immaculately clean and well maintained. The master bed is very comfortable. The laundry machines are new and work well. We spent time each night out on the lanai watching the sun set. The out door shower was airy yet private. It was fun to shower while clouds floated by. We loved the Poipu Beach Athletic Club which is included with the home. At first we were a little concerned because it is one mile from the house but we loved stopping off there each night as we returned from hiking or going to the beach to shower off, swim, play shuffle board, pickleball, tennis. Our kids loved it. The pool has a slide and a sand kid area connected the pool. In the morning my wife and I worked out there using their great gym facilities. We have been to Kauai many times and this has been our favorite property.
This home went above and beyond my expectations! Not only is it beautiful inside and out, it is very clean. The location is great (less than a five minute drive to Poipu Beach and Lappert's Ice Cream!) and right on the golf course. Everything we needed for the week was provided for us (towels, beach chairs, kitchen utensils, BBQ etc). Having access to the Poipu Athletic Club was definitely a bonus. Our kids loved swimming in the pool and we even played some tennis. Bryan, the property manager, is great and very attentive to any needs that may arise. We are looking forward to visiting Kauai again and staying in this home.
We are a family of 6 adults and loved staying here. House was clean, very comfortable for entertaining/meals. We rented 4 bikes from Kauai outfitters as the pool/gym is more of a bike ride (10 mins) than walking back and forth. Overall it was everything we could hope for. Recommend :)
Our home was awesome! Clean, beautifully decorated in a fabulous neighborhood. I’m very picky and it far exceeded my expectations. The description and pictures of the house were very accurate. Bryan our property manager was very accessible. We couldn’t have asked for anything better!
The home that we stayed at was a complete home away from home which did exceed our expectations. It was well appointed and professionally decorated in quality. A pool home is typically a deal breaker, but we were behind the curve on available inventory. Our management host Bryan,
was very professional and was at the home before us to greet us. Bryan made things quite clear and offered himself for any further support. We really look forward to working with Elite and hopefully Bryan.
Aloha and mahalo,
Great experience! Bryan and the team at Elite were great to deal with, responsive, and helpful. Excellent property, centrally located and wonderful space. We would definitely stay again!
New, had everything you needed including wake up call by resident roosters. Pleasure dealing with Elite.
The house was amazing. It was very nice and the property manager was excellent. We definitely want to stay there again.
This is the perfect home away form home on the island of Kauai! It's a brand new property and so it's extremely well maintained and has modern features... such as AC!! ... which is quite hard to find in Poipu. Ideal spot for golf lovers as this home is right on the course!
Modern and new interior with updated everything, not the typical beach rental.
Having morning coffee outside area over looking the golf course, vacation, vacation, vacation!. Outside shower is the best!
Modern clean new neighborhood. Walking distance to shopping village, what a sweet spot! Ground floor unit nice amenities.
The home is brand new. Very comfortable and close to everything. We will be back next year!
Fantastic stay on the island for a family getaway! The location sits right in the heart of Poipu close to beautiful beaches, restaurants and shopping. Lots of amenities at the property and access to the Poipu Athletic Club which was an added bonus! Bryan, our property manager, was right there for any questions or issues and responded immediately for arrival, during the stay, and for departure.
Definitely looking forward to our next stay!
We have made more than 10 trips to Kauai in recent years and have stayed in many fine homes. Without a doubt, Kiahuna Lani at Poipu is by far our favorite property! We were there for 11 nights and found it to be even more beautiful than displayed in the photos. It's in a great location -- lovely, quiet neighborhood, yet a 5-10 minute car ride or 20 minute maximum walk to the beach and shops/restaurants in Poipu and Kukuiula shopping centers or Koloa town. An added bonus was access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club.
The home is brand new and everything is spotless and designer appointed. We loved the outdoor shower attached to the master bath. The Lanai was a gathering place for coffee in the morning and grilling in the evening. The neighborhood is just beautiful and perfect for taking a morning walk. It was an absolute treat to have our beach needs met without having to run out to the store. We appreciated the quality chairs, towels, umbrellas, and rolling cooler.
Bryan is the epitome of an attentive property manager. We were celebrating a very special occasion and so appreciated the thoughtful gifts to welcome us. Thank you! We are already making plans for our return trip.
