Great condo unit. Very clean. Can hear the waves crashing. Saw dolphins, whales, and turtles from the sliding doors, which open out to the grass. Quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay again.
The view from this unit was amazing. The first 2 days of our trip were quite rainy so we appreciated being able to sit on our patio and still enjoy a beautiful view. The patio furniture was rather uncomfortable. The chairs feel as if you are being pushed forward and they have a padding that is too big for the chair so you sort of feel like you are falling out of it. The beach chairs are more comfortable, use those instead. Just like the other reviews said, the unit had everything you could need or want in a kitchen. The parking lot was quite tight, the reviews are not exaggerated. Our friend's vehicle was hit by another vehicle while the other driver was attempting to back out. Thankfully it did not cause significant damage. The unit could use some new bed covers. They all had stains. I texted the company and they assured me that they were all fresh and had been cleaned. The master bedroom's blanket was the worst, the top of the blanket that would be near your face looked like it had just been used. The pillow cases started to slip off some of the pillows and you could see that some of them were quite stained up and not very sanitary looking. The unit would benefit from zippered allergy cases and then pillow cases over the top. Aside from that, the master bed and even the pull out bed were quite comfortable. The unit had boogie boards, lounge chairs, beach toys etc. Overall it was a nice unit and had a lot of extras in it. It did not have binoculars though so don't forget to pack some if you Iike a closer look of the whales.
Very nice property right on the ocean. Easy access to the pool.
Such an amazing location. Great for the family. Loved having A/C in the bedrooms and living room. The only thing missing from making this stay absolutely perfect would have been a wagon to trek all our gear back and forth from the beach and binoculars to get a better view of all the whales that we saw. Would definitely stay here again.
Perfect location and layout for a 4 person family. Beautiful view and access to grassy area for kids and pool overlooking cliffs. Would 100% stay here again.
We enjoyed three nights in Poipu beach in a very conveniently located place and well equipped.
The prior reviews are extremely accurate in that the unit is in a perfect location and super, well stocked. By far, the best stocked unit every stayed in worldwide. Kitchen appliances are new and there is both a Keurig and regular coffee maker. The issue is the cleanliness. Housekeepers were there and not dusty BUT grime, streaks on all the glass furniture, living room wall, etc. We bought Windex and it helped but the unit needs a good deep cleaning. We also asked for twin beds to be put together and this didn't occur. The twin beds are very uncomfortably hard. The primary bedroom with a king bed is super comfortable. There are three A/C units: one in living room, and one in each bedroom. Difficult to figure out and there were no instructions. Additionally, the unit just smelled musty the entire time - from A/C units? Or prior renters leaving went beach equipment in the closets? Additionally, the unit was over 100 degrees when we arrived and didn't cool down until next day. But the ceiling fans work very well. TV and internet are perfect. Complex is old but lovely pool (heated at a nice temp). Parking is available but spots are super small! We had a Nissan Sentra 4-door and had trouble. Liked the unit for the ability to walk to the beach but not sure I would stay there again due to the musty smell, cleaning, and the second bedroom mattress are not great. Also dining, living and patio furniture are dated but in nice condition.
Really, just see the review from Davis H. but I'll specifically call out:
- Host was wonderfully responsive.
- Proximity to pool was the best.
- A/C worked great (once I figured out how to work it).
- Kitchen was amazing.
- Having an individual, secured wi-fi network is essential. I would never use a shared/open network.
- No chickens. Seriously. You will appreciate this!

The condo was so well stocked, had everything and then some. Loved being so close to the pool. Comfortable beds
This condo had everything a family of 6 could possibly need to enjoy themselves in Hawaii. Here is a list of everything we loved:
- A fully-stocked kitchen (and I really mean it. They have more kitchen gadgets than I have at home)
- High-end appliances
- A few coolers of different sizes
- Seasonings for cooking
- Olive oil for cooking
- Only 20 feet from a heated pool. This was one of our favorite places to hang out. Sunrise and sunset were amazing and you could always see turtles in the ocean below the pool.
- Air conditioning!
- Plenty of TVs for the family to spread out and relax
- Plenty of linens
- Washer and dryer were life savers
- We never ran out of hot water with a family of 6
- They have two Wi-Fi networks you can use for internet. Wi-Fi for the condo complex and Wi-Fi that is specific to this condo. The Wi-Fi for the condo got around 25mbps, usually. The Wi-Fi for the condo was 300mbps. Plenty of bandwidth for anything you could throw at it.
- Beach chairs, beach umbrellas, snorkeling gear (including fins), boogie boards, and sand toys
- The view from the back lanai. Beautiful.
- Only a 5 minute walk to Brennecke's Beach
- The complex-owned grills were clean and new and close to the condo
- USB chargers EVERYWHERE
- One TV died when we were there. I'm sure it will be replaced soon, but it was kind of a bummer.
- The table on the lanai was cute, but uncomfortable to set at
- The parking is crazy squishy. Seriously.
What a great condo! The location is perfect for families wanting to enjoy all Poipu has to offer. We appreciated being walking distance to the beaches, loved the easy access to the pool (and watching all the sea turtles!!), and absolutely loved the views!! Communication with the owners was quick and helpful and the check in and check out process was easy and efficient. We appreciated all the extras that came with the unit as well-boogie boards, coolers, beach chairs etc. Even though it wasn’t guaranteed that we’d have access to them, the owners went above and beyond to replace the broken umbrella with a new one within hours of us letting them know the one at the unit was broken. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay on our vacation to Kauai!
This unit was a great location for staying in Poipu - close to Poipu beach, the Spouting Horn, shopping areas, and grocery stores. Only a 20-minute drive to Lihue and 1-hr 15-min drive to Koke'e State Park. Amazing views and sounds of the ocean. Sea turtle (honu) sightings occurred throughout the day, just offshore. You could walk out to the grassy area in front of the unit to see the sunset in the evening. Air conditioning in every room was great! Laundry machine, dryer, dishwasher, oven and fridge all worked well. Kitchen was well-stocked with utensils, pots, pans, baking sheets, cooler, plates, cups, dish towels, trivets, etc. Room also included beach chairs and a boogie board in the utility closet. The property owner was very responsive to email and text communications. We had a great stay!
We had an amazing stay in Poipu! The unit was clean and comfortable. The best part was the ocean being so close and hearing the waves crash into the rocks. We slept like babies! The worst part about this property was having to leave. Can’t wait to visit again!
This was a beautiful condo in a fabulous location in Kauai! The owners thought of everything and more! Had a beautiful view of the ocean and was conveniently located to nice beaches and conveniences.
The only issue was the parking. Tiny parking lot with tiny spaces and everyone had BIG vehicles! This made for a parking nightmare.
We’ve stayed at the Poipu Shores several times. We love it! House was cozy and functional. Thanks for a great stay!
Can’t beat the view
This condo was wonderful and had everything we needed! It was very comfortable and perfect for our family of four. The view of the ocean was mesmerizing! We saw many swimming turtles and dolphins! The pool was fabulous and access to the beach was so convenient! We highly recommend it and would definitely stay here again.
We had a very relaxing stay at Poipu Shores 102A. Check in was easy. We had a few issues upon arrival, but the property manager and Jed took care of everything kindly and rapidly, and were sure to make our stay great. We spent most of our time outside on the patio and grass area. Thankful for the beach chairs, as we often spread out on the lawn to take in the views and enjoy the weather. The air conditioner was a must and we were so thankful that we had it to keep us cool through the nights. The kitchen was well stocked, as we made most of our meals at the condo. We couldn't get better views at any restaurant, so we were happy to stay in every night and sit on the patio. The tall wooden outdoor table and chairs were a bit uncomfortable and made for an awkward dining experience with 5 people, as a regular chair/beach chair could not be pulled up to it, but we made do. We really had a great time exploring the island and hanging at the condo, and being steps from the pool was an added bonus. I would definitely stay at 102A again and will recommend the condo to others.
The host were great to communicate with and the condo was in a good location on the South Shore. We were happy with the accommodations and would stay here again.
Fantastic View and walkout unit in front of the ocean and next to the pool.
We have stayed at this property many times over the years. It does not disappoint!
This condo was a delight, right on the water, just as advertised. We did see turtles from the lanai and it is a short walk to Poipu Beach! The space might be a bit smaller than is apparent from the photos.
Spectacular views. Very well equipped condo. Walking distance to beaches in both directions. Saw sea turtles daily. Condo was clean. Would stay again.
Had great appliances! Very clean and organized!
Our ohana enjoyed our time spent here immensely. The place was comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped with all gadgets that a cook will need. I have food allergies and having a kitchen to prepare my food is VIP. This kitchen could be advertised as a gourmet kitchen due to the ability to cook anything you want (even a turkey!)
My 2 teens enjoyed their own beds, and I loved listening to the ocean crash against the shore all night. The couch also has a pullout bed which we didn't need. If you're looking for an excellent view and a relaxing place, I'd highly recommend it! The one caveat, however, is transporting your luggage to the room could be tedious (not impossible) if you are alter-abled. There is an elevator, but if that isn't available, it could be difficult to maneuver your way to the room for a person using a wheel-chair or walker. Once in the room, however, it's a fantastic ground floor unit. We enjoyed walking onto the lawn to watch the whales and honus! I will definitely plan on staying here again!
This condo was perfect,. It was direct oceanfront - I actually saw turtles while I was cooking in the kitchen! It was clean, beautifully decorated and updated. There were beach chairs, and boogie boards and everything you needed in the kitchen! We will definitely rent this condo in the future!
Poipu Shores 102A is a fantastic place to stay. We enjoyed every sunrise and sunset from the lanai.
Spinner Dolphins and Sea Turtles in the waves right in front of the condo daily. I was a bit hesitant to stay on a ground floor unit as we’ve stayed in 2 other units on the upper floors in the past. This unit exceeded all of our expectations!
The unit is just steps to the pool and to the path to walk to the nearby beaches. The complex is located far from the road, there is plenty of parking and it’s a quiet and safe place to stay.
There is an AC unit plus ceiling fans in every room. We did not use the AC as the fans and windows kept us cool.
This condo has every appliance utensil and bar ware you’ll ever need. The furnishings and bedding are lovely and comfortable. There are beach chairs, coolers and an umbrella for enjoying days at the beach. The Owner’s have thought of everything you’ll need to make your stay at Poipu Shores 102A fun and relaxing. We highly recommend this unit and will definitely book again in the future!!
Jed was very accommodating and timely with answering my questions. Also, very pleasant to talk with.
The office was closed for the weekend when I arrived so I could not get a parking pass, but a hand written note placed on the car dash worked nicely.
The unit was great! Clean and well stocked. The views were amazing! And the next door neighbors were super friendly.
I am already planning my next trip!
From the moment my wife and I walked in the front door with upclose views of the bursting white waves crashing on the sea rocks we knew we were in for a great stay! Jed & Lisa's condo was very clean and inviting. The main bed was super comfortable for us and it was a real treat to hear the ocean all night. The kitchen had all the items we needed to cook our meals and also a hightop table with a view outside that we enjoyed each one at. We were always able to find parking no matter the time, but FYI sometimes we had to park in the top spaces, which requires walking up/ down a slight hill, no problem for us at all. The washer and dryer was awesome to have in unit as was the A/C in the bedroom. The pool and deck area was a great spot to relax after a long day out and watch the sunset, surfers and marine life in the distance, glad we brought binoculars! This condo was in a great location to base the 1st half of our trip on the south side of Kauai. This was our first time using Vrbo and Jed & Lisa had great communication and made the whole process seamless. Overall it was a great experience and we would stay with them again!
We enjoyed our stay here. We loved hearing and watching the waves crash. It was great to be so close to the pool - a short walk. The kitchen was well stocked and we really appreciated that there were lots of plates, silverware, drink ware, etc.
It’s always hard to leave.
This condo was perfectly situated and within walking distance to Brenneckes. The property was comfortable and exactly as represented. The hosts were very responsive to any inquiry we had. We would definitely recommend this property!
We loved our stay at this unit. At first I thought we should stay on an upper floor for better views, but I was drawn to this unit’s proximity to the pool and ability to spread out from the lanai onto the grass. I loved the sound of the waves crashing and watching the honus from the pool deck. The unit was very clean, updated and had everything we needed (minus enough kitchen towels and an extra set of towels for the 2nd bathroom - maybe they weren’t put out by the cleaning crew). Rent this unit! You’ll be happy you did.
This condo has it all! Location was amazing, just a short walk to the beach, steps from the pool, right by the water. The kitchen is fully stocked and the beach items were great! Very responsive owner and property manager. Highly recommend this condo and will definitely stay again if we return to Kauai!
My family and I stayed at this beautiful condo in Poipu. It’s located on the ground floor and there’s an oceanside view from the back door. The condo is generously equipped with all the amenities you’ll need for your stay including beach chairs. umbrella (much needed in the strong sun), towels, etc. After spending time on the beach, you’ll want to relax by the gorgeous pool located just steps away from the condo….and you’ll have fun watching all the sea turtles swimming in the ocean nearby!
We’ll definitely return to Poipu Shores!
