Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our first visit to Kauai and experience with Kauai Vacation Rentals was positive. We arrived about 1 a.m. in the midst of blowing winds and rain but, after a few days, the weather improved. We enjoyed our daily walks to Poipu Beach to see the resting turtles and monk seals. Snorkeling was also good at this location. Unit 106A was as advertised -- an updated well stocked kitchen, beach necessities, and ocean front. The bedroom and dining area ceiling fans kept the air moving and the slatted front door and sliding patio door added cross ventilation. The air conditioning was adequate; neither bedroom was uncomfortable. We had occasion to contact Kauai Vacation Rentals and they responded promptly to our enquiries.

The property and location were great, especially the pool. Having beach chairs and towels was a plus. Good kitchen and supplies there. The grounds maintenance was not great. Dead grass, etc. We felt the property was in need of updating. Specifically, - The guest bedroom was really hot. Only strategic positioning of noisy fans made it bearable. With only a few outlets available, we needed extension cords for the fans. Needs A/C. - The parking lot is a joke. The spaces are too narrow for full size cars, so parking and getting in and out were a major chore. When people parked a little crooked, the parking police left notes on our windshields. - Pave (tile) the path down to the first floor of bldg A. The gravel path seems like an afterthought, not friendly to suitcases. - Two cockroaches were not welcome. At all. - The soap dispenser in the shower of the guest bedroom was empty. We had our own soap so didn't complain. Most of that was not a huge problem, the hot bedroom and parking lot being the most annoying. The location and pool were great, and we still had a wonderful week.

Reviewer Comments: The location was perfect, The kitchen very well stocked. The master bedroom and the living area were great. The air conditioning worked great in the living area and master bedroom. The secondary bedroom had no air conditioning and our friends had a horrible time. The room was so hot and muggy even with the windows open and fans blowing. It was like being in a Sauna. I would have given the unit a 5 all the way except for this major issue.

We rented two units with family in one and my wife and I in another. The location afforded us the opportunity to enjoy all that Poipu has to offer.

This is the 4th trip to this condo complex. It is perfect. we love the lanai, the pool, the turtles and the quick walk to Poipu Beach. This unit was cozy and perfect for our family. Look forward to next year's visit!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This accommodation was exactly what I was looking for. Walking distance to Poipu Beach, king bed, air conditioning, ocean front, and it was exactly as described. Very nice kitchen that was stocked better than mine at home. The bed was very comfortable. I loved being able to hear the ocean while in bed or in the living room. Enjoyed breakfast and evenings on the patio. There was also books and maps on Kauai. Additionally the rest of the property was beautiful and smelled amazing due to the flowers. We can’t wait to return.

Spent more time at the pool than we did at the beach. The pool is the best!Thank you!

Poipu is a nice location to stay on Kauai; the property is a short walk to Poipu Beach. The property managers were very responsive & friendly; check-in was a breeze. Way too many automated emails from the company, though. As for the property - it was okay, but we were not impressed. The view from the lanai was nice. The kitchen has been re-done, and is quite nice. The rest of the place is quite dated. The carpet was stained, the couches were very uncomfortable. Both the glass and screen sliders are very finicky to open and close, and the screen slider came off the track often. It needs to be repaired/replaced. Could use sealing around the windows/doors too. The unit wasn't that clean when we arrived. For instance, there was a bunch of salt or sugar or something on the counter by the sink, and there was ~ a teaspoon of uncooked rice on the counter in the corner by the island. I appreciate the patterned counter may make it difficult to see this, but whether visible or not, cleaning a unit between guests should include wiping the counters. I cleaned and vacuumed myself before unpacking. There was a water incident in the unit above, so the master bathroom shower had a plastic sheet for a ceiling, attached with staples and tape. My husband found a staple on the floor while in the shower. We recognize this is not the fault of the owners, and the repair is in progress between guests, but it did add to our being unimpressed with the property.

It is nice condo in a great location. You will hear the ocean crashing against the rocks the whole time you are staying there. You are within walking distance to some great things and not a far drive from even more. The only negative about the condo is the parking. There is not a lot of it and the spaces are tiny. We rented a large car and it was not fun trying to park the car each time we returned to the condo. Otherwise it was a spectacular vacation!!!!

We were welcomed with a lovely gift bag, a small cooler bag and a bottle of cold champagne - a lovely touch. The view from the lanai is spectacular and we enjoyed watching the whales. The condo was well stocked both in the kitchen and with beach accessories. A two minute walk to the beach made sunsets magical - with seals and turtles joining us each evening. Loved every minute. Mahalo!

I highly recommend this location for anyone who enjoys the lush garden island, whale watching from your Lanai, or just enjoying a walk to the beach to see the turtles and Monk Seals.

The unit itself was very nice. The bubbly, re-usable bags and snacks upon arrival were a lovely touch. The location of the property was excellent, close to everything. Leading up to our arrival, property management was friendly and communicative. The unit itself was nice, the lanai opens to lawn area overlooking the ocean, which was great. The master bedroom faces the sea, offering amazing views. The master had its own a/c unit, which is great for keeping that room cool (there is another a/c unit in the main living area as well). The second bedroom is furthest from the ocean and did not have its own a/c unit, which was perfectly fine, as it had slatted windows that could be kept open for airflow. Only issue with this is that the windows face the main walkway and other guests were inconsiderate when walking in the walkway past the windows, having loud conversations at all hours of the day and night. Not at all the fault of the property of course, but made for some disruptions during our stay. We had a few other issues with other guests being obnoxious, smoking by our unit, etc., but this had more to do with inconsiderate people staying adjacent to us—again, not the fault of the property. It is an older complex, as most in the area are, but it is well kept and the pool is great. Just know that at this property, sounds seem to travel, so if noise caused by loud guests, elevators, or maintenance people yelling to one another is a concern, it may not be a good fit. Parking was competitive, stalls were kind of small and other guests consistently parked outside of painted lines, which only made it harder to fit into the limited number of spaces. There are two lots, upper and lower, with the lower lot seeming to be more popular given it was closer to the units. We didn’t have a problem, but saw others struggling to navigate with their vehicles. Our biggest issue has been with getting our refundable deposit returned. After not receiving it 10-days after our stay, we contacted them multiple times to request an update. We received an email saying it was being refunded, but we still don’t have the funds. HI law requires deposits to be returned within 14 days after relinquishing the premises, today is day 13 and we are still waiting. We aren’t too happy about having to contact them about it, and definitely not pleased with how long it’s taken to be processed. Overall, our experience was a 4 out of 5. Would I stay here again? Maybe.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful stay at Poipu Shores 106A. The communication with the management company was great. We were told that there was an issue with the master bedroom blinds which they couldn't fix. We were okay with them to leave it as is or fix it during our stay. We texted some more issues we had with blunt knives and dirty and not enough pots and they were all replaced the very same day. Agree on other reviews that the condo needs some TLC like the main door is difficult to unlock and the patio door doesn't lock or slide well. But that didn't bother our vacation. Though it was difficult to operate it was manageable. The view to the ocean beats all of it. The guest bedroom isn't the ocean view but has a very nice view of the garden. Looks like a mini rainforest. We used the patio dining table for all our meals. The view and breeze is amazing. We could go out for run to the Poipu Beach, walk and see turtles, go on night walks, drive everywhere around the island, etc. Love the condo and would definitely like to go back again.

We were here for a week during the birth of my granddaughter. My daughter lives on the island. Loved the kitchen, and the relaxing nature of the location.Parking for a truck was a bit challenging but we figured it out after a couple days.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This condo is perfectly positioned for beach fun and relaxing on the patio while you watch for whales, turtles and dolphins. The layout is efficient, a well set up kitchen and great beach amenities. The pool is definitely a highlight positioned over the cove with splashing waves and plenty of turtles to watch below. The only drawback was the noise from other people along the hallway outside the second bedroom windows...but there’s no controlling that.

It had all the amenities needed to relax with coffee in the morning, sitting in beach chairs at lunch and watching the sunset with dinner on the patio. The shoreline walkway starts at Poipu Shores and leads to beaches, shops, restaurants and other resorts. The air conditioner and unit laundry were extras.

Older property with gorgeous view. First floor unit opens to grassy areas that people staying at unit walk through to get to the beach. Not a ton of privacy when sitting outside. It’s about a 10 minute walk to get to a sandy beach. You can look over the edge of the grassy area to watch waves crash on the lava rocks. From inside, you can see the waves as they hit the lava rocks and bounce up. There were beach chairs, a cooler, and an umbrella to use. Back sliding door and glass door were a pain to shut but probably hard to maintain with the mist from the waves literally 10 feet away. We saw whales, dolphins, and turtles from the porch. There are binoculars at the property. Really enjoyed ourselves. Book Nepali tours early - these were sold out.

The place is amazing for its location but needs some serious updating. Mostly it needs a very thorough cleaning. It smells moldy and musty, carpet is a mess and should be removed. Beds were satisfactory. Tiny TV is a joke.
