We absolutely loved our stay at this property! It’s hard to describe how beautiful the view is and how amazing it is to watch the huge turtles in the surf. I have stayed at many VRBO properties and this one by far had the best amenities to make the stay comfortable. The kitchen is so well stocked with cooking pots/pans/plates/glassware and it was also so nice to have k cups supplied as well as cooking staples like olive oil and some spices etc.. we had an incredible 3 nights there. The AC was great for nighttime sleeping and it was nice to wash our clothes as we had come from a hotel. The location is great for walking to the beach or hiking or walking to restaurants. We loved Brennekes ! And it was cool to see all the turtles across from there at dusk. I highly recommend this property and would go back more if it wasn’t so far from Boston!! Our stay was amazing! Mahalo !
Fabulous stay- Doug and Candy were totally responsive and helpful. The condo was everything we hoped for - so peaceful listening to the ocean, watching sea turtles and walking to beaches and the Hyatt. Hopefully we’ll return for a future visit- Mahalo to Kauai and all the beautiful people who call this home‼️
My husband and I stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary. We loved the location: open the sliding doors to let it the sound of the waves,. go out the front door for the choir of bird song! We enjoyed breakfast and sea-turtle watching from the deck in the morning, and cocktails and sunset-gazing in the evening. We enjoyed having the A/C when we came in from a hike, or to cool our room at night. The kitchen was fantastically stocked with every utensil we could desire. The light and beachy interior was clean and tastefully decorated. The hosts were very friendly and speedy responding to any questions we had.
One of the most gorgeous vacation rentals we have ever stayed in. The view is absolutely perfect. Saw whales and many turtles from the balcony. The interior of condo is well decorated and spacious. The upper level master has a spa feel to it. Bathroom with soaker tub and separate shower. Essentially all amenities provided toilet paper, trash bags, laundry detergent. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and coolers also available for use. Doug and Candy make the check in/out processes super easy Highly recommend. Pictures don’t do this property justice. Our family loved the property and location
We were very pleased with this rental - you cannot beat the views from the lanai - Had a small problem but the host responded immediately and the situation was resolved. The rental was well stocked with essentials.
This gorgeous house has the most amazing views I have ever seen. We watched turtles swimming from our window every day. The location is outstanding and a brief walk to Poipu beach where there were turtles and seals sleeping on the beach, benches for picnics and pristine sand for playing and sunbathing. Short walk to the beautiful Hyatt and its restaurants. The beds are comfortable and the 2 story home would easily accommodate 6 adults in the 3 bedrooms. There are also pull-out couches. Fully equipped kitchen with a dining table indoors and a lovely dining table on the lanai for outdoor dining. Upstairs loft with a comfortable L shaped couch and large screen TV. The bathrooms are recently remodeled and lovely. Doug and Candy were very responsive by text for any help and questions. I loved Kauai and cannot wait to return.
What a view! Turtles everyday, you can watch them forage in the waves right from your deck. Whales and dolphins, too. The ocean view fills the wide windows in the main room. You can explore small tide pools and dip in the pool. A good central location to set off to various destinations. The house was comfortable and well furnished. Great to have AC that can be individually controlled in each room.
We were in town for a wedding at the Hyatt. One couple and two singles. It was a great walking distance to the wedding hotel and good for sleeping our group with having our own bathrooms. Beautiful views. Really enjoyed our stay.
Everything was wonderful and the view was spectacular !!
Beautiful property and view! Great communication.
Three sisters and their spouses came together to spend a week on Kauai. This was a wonderful experience and location!
Beautiful spacious and well stocked penthouse - sit and have coffee and watch the wales and dolphins playing in the ocean couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay with our daughter. Son in law and 10 month old baby - Candy and Doug are so professional and quick to respond We will definitely be back
Thanks so much for renting your condo to us. Incredible views and right on the water. We could see the whales and sea turtles from our balcony -- and one seal! The owners were super responsive and everything was as promised.
We absolutely loved this property! We’ve already booked again for next year. Great location near beaches, nice walking trails, restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. Beautiful view right from the condo! You can literally watch turtles all day long from the lanai. Beautifully decorated and stocked with all you need. Only two things to be aware of- it’s a top floor condo, which is great for views, but there is no elevator. This means lots of stairs. It wasn’t an issue for us, but something to be aware of. There is onsight parking , but it’s a tight garage. Fine for a smaller vehicle, but a big suv might be a challenge. Overall a great place to stay!! This is our new favorite rental!
Wow. What a vacation home. The patio was large and had a 6 person dining table. When we got there, we put down our luggage and sat for hours with our cocktails just looking at the breaking surf on the rocky shoreline. Being on the 3rd floor gave a great view of ocean and sunsets were plentiful.
Inside there was a fully stocked kitchen with anything that you need.
There was one large master bedroom with a big bathroom and access to a private den. 2 other privet rooms with their own bathrooms rounded out the sleeping rooms.
The grounds were nice and a pool and grill available.
Access to the beach was a bit of a hike or short drive. We saw turtles and dolphins almost everyday
The hosts could not have been nicer. They provided info before we got there on their unit and what to do on the island in general. (Thanks Candy and Doug !!)
A 5 rating all around is deserved.
We visited during my kids fall break from school. We had a family of 6 (my wife and I, our kindergartener and our toddler, and the two grandmothers), and we made great use of this condo. Has an amazing view; you'll feel like you're actually at sea. Very close to Poipu Beach, which has a sheltered cove which is great for little ones, or for watching sea turtles! Owners were very polite and responsive. You will have a great time at this place!
The view is unbelievable. If you like the ocean close this is it. No beach but ocean and coastline view beyond expectations
We loved our stay here! It was a perfect location for our activities in Lihue, Wailea and Waimea. Thank goodness for the air conditioning as it does get warm in the afternoon with the sun. Loved sitting out on the deck and watching the waves and plenty of turtles. I would highly recommend!
The view from the property was magnificent. The owners were prompt and great to work with. We loved our stay.
Great ocean view, comfortable & safe environment, fully stocked with all you need, close to many local excursions! New AC is a marked improvement although ocean breezes keep it comfortable as well. We fully enjoyed our stay! The owners were always available to answer questions! We would stay here again and give it a 5-star review!!
You are definitely missing out if you do not stay in this unit!!! I was pleasantly shocked to realize all that was available for us.....Beach Chairs, Beach Umbrellas, Boogy Boards, Snorkel Gear and binoculars. The Beach Towels were numerous and fabulous. The kitchen was stocked so very well, including a step stool to reach the high cabinet shelves. They provided soap for dishes, for the laundry, dish washer, body soap, shampoo, conditioner, the refrigerator ice machine kept us plentifully supplied, and the cooking utensils/pots & pans, microwave, coffee machine was better supplied than my own kitchen. All you need to but is food!
All the furniture was comfortable and the beds quite comfy!!!
You get more than your money's worth,, believe me!!!! I hope to stay here once again. Oh, a big plus....checking out you only had to run the dishwasher, hang wet towels, empty trash, close windows & doors, and turn off all lights and air conditioners!!! It definitely couldn't be any easier. We all say we would not have wanted to stay anywhere else. Thank you Doug and Candy!!!
This property is perfectly located between the Grand Hyatt and Brennecke’s Beach. Great sunset views and very walkable. The owners are friendly and helpful and the home sports amazing views of the ocean. At times it feels you’re over the water! Beautiful!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The parking was a bit challenging and lots of stairs to get to the condo. The view was fantastic and the interior of property was exactly as described. We really appreciated the use of coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. The property was extremely well stocked.
Doug and Cindy are very friendly, we left some clothes, and we called to ask if they could be shipped them, and we are willing to pay the shipment fee, they said we don't have to, next thing you know package arrived within few days. The house is lovely and clean; everything you need is right there, . I give it 10+ stars.
We have stayed in the Poipu area many times and this place has turned out to be my favorite. The house had everything we needed and we enjoyed many hours watching the turtles, waves and even a monk seal. Before we arrived an air conditioning system was put in, but we did not have to use it very much. The breeze with the windows open cooled the house quite well. We enjoyed walking to the Hyatt in the mornings and the shops and restaurants were not far away. Highly recommend this rental.

We visited three islands on this trip. I was most looking forward to this island and this stay. It did not disappoint. The view from the unit was breathtaking. I loved hearing the ocean and watching the sea turtles swim in the waves.
Every breakfast was on the ocean-facing Lanai. Ample room for our family of 5.
The unit was well equipped and the owners were available and helpful to provide information .
I hope to return again. It was simply lovely.
I only wished that it had an elevator
Beautiful view, turtles said good morning to us every day. Sunsets were breathtaking, the house had plenty of room for my family of 5. Close to anything we needed and safe. My family hated leaving, we will be back next year!!
Our family of 5 loved staying here. Condo had everything we needed and the view was simply beautiful. Great location.
Super comfortable. Great for morning coffee watching the ocean waves, reading a book in the comfy living room overlooking the ocean waves, and having dinner on the deck while yes, watching the sunset over the ocean waves. You can't get closer to the water than this!
Beds were all comfortable. The ocean can be loud in the master bedroom. You can adjust the window louvres to quiet it while still having a breeze. Kitchen very well organized and stocked. Enjoyed the TV loft. No issues with parking. (There are stairs so maybe not for those with mobility issues.) The house was spotlessly clean and has plenty of linens and towels. Appreciated having all of the basics stocked (detergents, soaps, paper, etc...), plus some beach supplies. No fuss entry and check out.
We loved the location since many of our activities were on the West coast. Walking to both Brennecke's and Shipwreck beaches is easy and pleasant, and also recommend finding your way to nearby Mahaulepu Beach (we drove then hiked down) which is stunning and not crowded. For a quick bite check out the friendly poolside bar and grill next door at The Point at Poipu.
Just like the picture! Wonderful property. We really enjoyed listening to the ocean waves as we fell asleep and as we enjoyed our wine overlooking the beautiful water and sunset. Absolutely deserves a 5 star rating! If I had to nitpick something it would be the parking ... its a bit tricky for a large vehicle but there are two parking areas and we managed just fine! And Doug and Candy are super!
Great property, great location! Comfortable and well appointed with everything you need. Fun watching the sea turtles from the lanai. Enjoyed the walk to the Hyatt for coffee and shaved ice several times!
We had a dream vacation with our 2 adult kids and their partners. It was set up so well. You can hear the ocean all night when you sleep upstairs in the master. Heavenly! The location on the water is better than a postcard. Good walking trails right from the condo. Well appointed kitchen---can't beat it! Beautiful!
So accommodating and courteous to answer questions and meet our needs. We were so pleased!! The home was perfect for our family!! And whales and turtles were plentiful!!!
Our family, 3 married adult couples, selected this property to celebrate college graduations and gainful employment by all, and it did not disappoint! Beautiful location and view of the rocky coastline, including plenty of turtle and whale watching right from the balcony. A short walk to Brennecke Beach, where uncrowded sunbathing and boogie boarding was enjoyed by all. Close to a nice walking trail along the coast. The property was exactly what we needed, 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Very clean and well stocked. The only sarcastic complaint was “the waves are too loud!” Beautiful property, worth the price for the views, size and location.
The view was incredible which is why we rented this unit. We woke up to the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks every morning. It was heavenly! We saw sea turtles and whales from the balcony! The condo worked great for our family of four. We enjoyed having the beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and coolers to take to the beach. Although the beach items have obviously been well used and may need to be replaced soon. One downside was the lack of AC and since it was a west facing unit it really heated up the place in the afternoon and often didn’t cool down until after we had gone to bed. Also beware that if you have mobility issues this is not the unit for you. There are stairs coming from the parking garage and the unit is on the third floor. However we loved the Poipu area beaches and restaurants. We had a wonderful vacation on Kauai!
We were a family of five adults staying here in mid January. Everything about the condo and location were superb. We have stayed in many VRBO’s and the entire family agreed that this was the best. The kitchen was unbelievably well stocked with high end small appliances, great quality dishes and glassware of every type. Every kind of pot or pan, a great toaster oven, blender, coffee maker. There were tons of clean towels and beach towels, and again, very high quality. Soft sheets, comfortable beds. The cross ventilation was excellent. We loved being between Poipu Beach and Shipwreck Beach. An easy 10 min walk to Poipu for a lovely park and great beach. The Heritage Trail winds along the oceanfront to the Hyatt, which is an experience in itself. We had great snorkeling at Poipu and were thrilled with the sleeping turtles and monk seals on the beach, which were protected by local volunteers. As everyone has mentioned, there is a constant parade of sea turtles you can watch from the lanai of the condo and we saw quite a few humpbacks early and late in the day. We loved being on the top floor, as you have no neighbors. So great for COVID times. The sunsets and water views were breathtaking.
Easy drive to many restaurants and coffee shops.
Doug and Candy were perfect hosts. They responded to my many questions promptly and kindly. Provided so many things that long distance travelers might need such as fins, snorkels, backpack beach chairs, reef shoes.
We cannot wait to come back. My adult children said it was their best vacation ever. Thanks you so much for a 10 star stay. Oh, and a recommendation for future guests—take the helicopter ride with Jack Harter helicopters. Breathtaking.
Extraordinary private location on the SW Tip of the Garden Isle. This property features unobstructed views of the ocean, with soothing surf, an abundance of sea turtles, and romantic sunsets that sink into the open pacific. Convenient access to an excellent coastal walking trail, and a large TV with a very comfortable couch for evening entertainment. We very much enjoyed our one-week stay :-)
One cannot get much closer to the ocean in this condo. The unit was clean, well appointed, and the view fantastic.
The view from this unit is spectacular. The lanai is shaded, offering a comfortable space to watch the turtles and dolphins. The unit is beautifully decorated and well appointed. It is spotlessly clean. It feels like a second home.
Stunning! I did not want to leave the unit to explore the island, although I did. Watched several turtles from the balcony. Easy walk to the Hyatt for dinner. Highly recommend this place! Has the BEST place to watch the sunset. Very happy!
This condo is spacious, beautifully maintained and fully equipped. The view is unobstructed and as good as it gets at Poipu--and that is saying something. The owners were extremely helpful and communicative. The walk to Brennecke's and Poipu beaches, to the west, is about 8 minutes. To the east, the coastal trail begins about 2 minutes away and goes on for miles. It couldn't have been better.
Clean, comfortable and all the amenities you'll need to enjoy Kauai. The location is right on the ocean, and the pictures don't do the view from the balcony justice. Walking distance to Poipu beach and a nature trail. Worth every penny!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this heavenly condo. The location is ideal, between Shipwreck and Poipu beaches, with stunning views. I can’t even begin to describe the sunsets! And so many sea turtles swimming by all day. The accommodations were great for us and our young adult children. Doug was super responsive and helpful. Highly recommended!
We just returned home from our dream vacation in Kauai (8/18/21 thru 8/23/21) made all the more a reality by this stellar property! This was my first time using VRBO so I wasn't sure what to expect. I am always a little suspect about any photos posted online about anything being sold/rented but I must say, the photos for this location couldn't have been any more accurate! From the time that we (2 families totaling 6 adults) entered the front door to be greeted by the spectacular view of the Southern facing Pacific Ocean, through the opening of the refrigerator and pantry stocked with a myriad of beverages and spices/condiments/coffee pods (and a welcome box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts!) as well as appliances/pots/pans, etc. we knew we selected the right location. Upon first stepping onto the lanai, my wife spotted the first sea turtle bobbing in the foamy waves below which were just a few yards away. Then she spotted another...and another...and another...and so on, every morning and afternoon for the length of our stay. Being from the northeast, we were so happy to see these marvelous creatures in the blueish/green crystal waters. One morning we awakened to a rainbow which emanated from the rocks below and towards our west, seemingly feet from us! The morning of our last day, we were blessed to witness a pod of dolphins, bounding through the waves, from way out in the ocean coming closer to us, passing just beyond the property's shoreline. Natures marvels were available to us at any time of day due to the location of this place. The condo was clean and spacious and clearly ready for our arrival. Doug & Candy (the owners) were very communicative and made the check-in/out processes a breeze. Speaking of breeze, while there is no AC, keeping the louver windows opened on both ends of the condo allowed for a steady, refreshing flow of air throughout the home. The place is complimented by ceiling and stand-fans . The property comes with free parking (on a dual-level garage) and seems a bit tight especially on the main level (as there are support beams across the area) however we had a Dodge Grand Caravan and were able to move around the parking lot with nary any issues. There are steps to navigate (both up and down) so the arrival and departure dates can be cumbersome if you have a lot of luggage, which we did. These are small issues compared to the amazing property, hospitality and locality!
I rented this condo along with my parents, my wife and daughter. We read all the previous reviews before renting. Doug is by far the most accommodating host we have ever experienced. The condo was well stocked- plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent Kleenex - all the essentials were included.
His “beach closet” has chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc….. beach toys for my daughter.
The condo was immaculate.
The view from the living room was spectacular. Exactly as Doug’s picture show and exactly as he describes.
Doug answered every question prior to our vacation quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent this condo from Doug again.
We were glad we had a car to get to the beach. It is definitely walkable from the condo to the beach but walking with all the “beach stuff” it was easier to drive.
We went down to the lava rock most every night to watch the sunset.
Simply put do not hesitate to rent this condo!
