A lovely condo overlooking the blue Pacific. Fully equipped and furnished by the owners with much attention to detail. The fully equipped kitchen is both lovely and very convenient for preparing meals and snacks. You will want to visit the local Sunshine Markets for fresh produce to include in your culinary creations.

Take in wonderful ocean views from indoors as well as from your private lanai. Watch for humpback whales in winter, and playful dolphins and sea turtles year-round. It’s just a short walk to beautiful Poipu Beaches nearby.

World-famous Poipu Beach Park, Spouting Horn and the National Tropical Botanical Gardens are all close by. Just past the Grand Hyatt in Poipu is a great hiking trail. There are many activities near-by to enjoy seasonal swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, kayaking, hiking, fishing, boat tours and flight seeing aboard helicopters.
For days you feel like staying close to home, you can always lounge by the swimming pool and take a refreshing dip whenever you please.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We’ve been to Kauai a number of times, always staying at a resort hotel. We thought we would try a condo this time and Sunset Kahili 506 got great reviews. After a weeks stay I totally agree! The condo was fantastic and we had a wonderful time! It is everything that the description describes plus more. We began and ended ours days sitting on the lani with its spectacular views watching the sun rise and set. So peaceful. The unit was super clean and well stocked (the kitchen was better stocked than mine at home). The location is within walking distance to many wonderful experiences. If you want a low key, quiet and relaxing vacation, this is the condo for you. The folks at Kauai Vacation Rentals should give classes to other businesses on customer service, because they are the best. Great communication, easy checkin and checkout process and a condo that exceeded our expectations. I also appreciate the fast refund of our security deposit after our stay. First class all the way!

Reviewer Comments: My wife and I stayed at the Sunset Kahili, a beautiful property in Poipu, wonderful ocean views, walking distance to Brennekes, Puka Dog and nice beaches. KVR was very helpful from our first contact right through to the end. We didn’t have any problems or issues, pick up from their office near the airport was a breeze and we can’t say enough good things about the experience. Mahalo KVR team, we will recommend you to our friends and family.

The view was amazing! In the first two days we saw whales, spinner dolphins, turtles and monk seals. The kitchen was well equipped except for a cork screw. Had to go buy a cork screw. We left it so future renters don't get here after traveling all day and find they can't open their wine ! Overall great place and a very nice pool area.

Had a great stay here with beautiful ocean views. Very quiet area, but walking distance to beach and a few restaurants. My wife's only complaint was there could have been more toilet paper/shampoo, etc...I would return to this unit in a second though.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We really enjoyed this apartment. We had it for six days. It had everything we needed. We really enjoyed listening to the water crash on the shore every night. Wish we had figured out on the first day that the best way to keep it cool is to open the windows on both ends of the unit to get a cross breeze going. Only downside of this place is that since it is so open air, you get a lot of natural light early, so it's best for early risers.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is a very nice unit recently remodeled in a beautiful location. We have stayed here before, and will stay here again. The only drawbacks were: no dishwasher or garbage disposal, & sometimes street noise is a problem. We understand that the pot smoking owner next door is leaving. We enjoyed a tour down in the Botanical Tropical Gardens, hiking up in Weimea Canyon, & along the Poipu beaches in both directions. Poipu Shopping Village has many good restaurants & shops, plus the Farmer's Markets are always interesting. Red Salt restaurant was also special. We also enjoy Hanapepe for food & shopping. Get your nails done at Donia"s in Koloa ! Best of all is just coming home, relaxing in the unit and enjoying the magnificent view ! Best on the island !!!!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Sunset Kahili. We came back because it was the perfect location for us! We LOVE the sunsets and the sounds of the ocean! We were a bit worried about no AC at first, but honestly the constant ocean breeze and the fans were plenty for us! (I run cold and my husband runs warm and it still worked for us!) Sunset Kahili #506 has been nicely updated. Nice kitchen and bathroom finishes. We didn't notice there was not a dishwasher until we were there, not a deal breaker, but we are not the types to leave sinks full of dishes, so we were doing dishes often. The unit is very clean and has anything you will need for your stay. The staff at Kauai Vacation Rentals are always so welcoming and accommodating. I would recommend both Kauai Vacation Rentals and staying at Sunset Kahili!! We enjoy staying in Poipu because it always seems sunny and the sunsets cannot be beaten!! Kauai is such a special place and we feel blessed to get to come visit your island! MAHALO!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Condo was located in great location in Poipu. There is one complex in between Sunset Kahili and the ocean, but being on the 5th floor you would not have known it - can see the ocean and hear the waves as if right on the ocean. Even though the complex does not have AC, we were fine with just the fans and the cross breeze when we needed it. Property, while older, was very clean and well-maintained. We were at Poipu Beach (don’t forget your reef safe sunscreen) every day so did not use the on site pool (no hot tub) but saw the on-site manager taking care of the area every day. Very handy that the unit had backpack beach chairs (though might be time to update those chairs), umbrella, beach towels, mini cooler and even a beach bag to borrow. The kitchen was well stocked even had basics like salt and pepper and small amount of vegetable oil for cooking. Lots of great restaurants in the area(reserve before!) - a couple walking distance or there was a local gentleman that gave rides in the Poipu at dinner time for tips. The location was an easy walk to baby beach (though slightly uphill coming back home) Be sure to walk down early morning 6am- to the beach- the turtles sleep there at night and you can usually catch one or two still on the beach (being protected by rope barriers) The Kauai Vacation rental team was excellent to deal with and provided very helpful info. The complex is definitely nice and quiet and ideal for couples looking for some quiet R&R or single travelers. We saw maybe one family there the whole time but it’s definitely a smaller complex. This unit was excellent because while facing the ocean, we did not get the direct sun in the afternoon so the unit probably stays cooler then the other rooms we saw on the opposite side. A rental car is definitely needed if you want to explore more than just Poipu. There was a bus we saw but quite a walk to get to. We did our grocery shopping at the Koloa local markets but also stopped at Safeway near the

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This fifth floor condo was the perfect location for me as I just wanted to relax and take in the ocean view. The balcony is shaded throughout the day,so, I could sit there, have my coffee, read my book or enjoy a cocktail in the evening without the sun on me. The kitchen has been updated and is well organized and appointed. The furnishings and bed are of a bright tropical nature and comfy. Well I did not miss a dishwasher, other vacationers might. I would highly recommend this condo again. Mahalo.

The condo was clean, well stocked, and we had a clear view of the ocean for whale watching. The grounds are well kept.Given the current Covid situation we did plenty of cooking in the condo - we did add a sharp knife and a stick-free pan to the kitchen gear. The re-modeled kitchen was a wonderful surprise!Having the grill available was a bonus!We loved being able to walk to the beach to check on the monk seals and turtles. :-)Dealing with the rental agency was highly professional, and check-in and out directions were clear and easy to follow.We are repeat renters and look forward to returning.

Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had stayed in this complex before and were very satisfied; but this unit was on the top floor and faced the water directly. We spend most of our time enjoying that view, both night and day! Enjoyed watching the moon's travel across the night sky and with north star. Kitchen supplies were minimal, but we made do, even cooked a few meals. Really appreciated having an ice maker--few of the other units had them. And the pool was a plus. All in all, the only thing that was annoying was the parking arrangements. Assigned spots are painted on the asphalt, with no apparent logic, and of course, our spot was one of the farthest from the walkway to the elevator--the luck of the draw!

We booked the property very easily. When we arrived the check-in was a bit to do as we had to go by a rental agency to get the keys. Not a big issue. It is a 5 story walk-up which was also not the best. The real problem is that there is no AC in the unit. We have a baby and this was not going to work. The only way to cool the apt off was to open the windows to which was road noise, people outside, etc. We tried to tough it out but had to leave. We let the property manager know and asked if we could get a partial refund - to which we have not heard any response. We had to book another room last minute that would be better suited for us.

Fabulous getaway. Thank you. Unit has nice updated kitchen with everything you need and niceties like turtle cabinet knobs, convenient washer and dryer, ocean view with balcony and comfortable island vibe, safe and quiet building among older neighbors, and is walking distance from resorts. Location car dependent.
