We purchased this lovely ground floor garden view condo in April, 2013. We installed tile flooring throughout the unit. We have updated the kitchen, master bathroom and half bath with new cabinets and granite counter tops. This condominium has a large master bedroom with A/C. The master bedroom has an an en-suite master bath with a walk in shower. Our home also has a half bath for your convenience. Our spacious lanai is an excellent place to kick back and enjoy your morning coffee or romantic dinner. Poipu Sands is located directly next to the ocean near famous Shipwreck Beach and adjacent to the Kauai Grand Hyatt Resort and Spa. The Grand Hyatt resort offers lush tropical grounds, casual and fine dining as well as shops and entertainment. Shipwreck Beach, located in front of the Hyatt is usually sunny and less crowded than other Poipu Beaches. This is a beautiful beach to take a romantic evening stroll and is often used as the backdrop for wedding photos. Poipu Sands is located within the upscale Poipu Kai resort. The Poipu Kai development is located on 70 acres and extends from Poipu Beach to Shipwreck Beach. The resort is connected by a green belt that has beautiful garden paths winding through it. The Kiahuna Golf Course and the Poipu Bay Golf Course are both in very near proximity. The nearby tennis club offers both hard and soft surface courts. You may also enjoy a game of tennis on Poipu Sands private tennis court. Poipu Sands is the only complex within Poipu Kai that offers a private tennis court. Poipu Sands also offers a large seasonally heated private swimming pool. You also have access to an additional pool and hot tub just a short walk down the green belt path. Poipu Beach which has been ranked as one of the top beaches in the United States is just a short 10 minute walk from our unit along the pleasant Poipu Kai green belt. This beach has both a shallow area which is excellent for swimming with small children and a great snorkeling area as well. This is a favorite spot to see napping endangered monk seals and Hawaiian sea turtles. Old Koloa Town located less than five miles away is the site of the island's first sugar mill. Historic Old Koloa Town is a hub of picturesque shops, eateries, gift and souvenir emporiums. There are a variety of Luaus throughout Kauai including one at the Grand Hyatt Resort right next door. You may also enjoy a horse back ride along the Mahaulepu Coast line, renting a stand up paddle board to enjoy the ocean surf or dining at the large variety of nearby restaurants ranging from family fare to upscale and romantic. Take a lovely evening stroll along the green belt to Poipu Beach to enjoy the sunset then come home to enjoy dinner on your very own quiet and comfortable lanai.

Went to Waikiki for a wedding then decided to come to Kauai for the first time. The condo was a perfect place to use as a home base to see all the sights and to relax. I loved the location next to the Grand Hyatt so there were many scenic walking areas.

Very nice property. We especially enjoyed the size and layout of the rooms. A big advantage for us was having the spacious main bathroom and a powder room. The kitchen was well appointed and stocked with paper products and soaps, detergents and scrubbies. Having the laundry in the unit was very convenient as well. I contacted the owner(s) with minor questions during our stay and the always responded within minutes. Definitely will stay here again.

We loved staying in this updated unit that had everything we wanted! The beach was just steps away and we could walk to our anniversary dinner at Tidepools at the Grand Hyatt. Great location to get to many fun activities on the island.

Perfect place to stay! Lots of room and very very well stocked. My now husband and I stayed there for 8 nights and got married just down the beach at shipwrecks beach. It was perfect! Perfect place to walk to the cliff and watch the sunrise. We really hope to come back one day!

We had a lovely stay in Kauai for 4 nights in this ground floor apartment. The bed is huge and comfortable . All the furniture has a tropical vibe. The kitchen is well equipped and the coffeemaker with ground coffee provided was a wonderful welcome after a long day. It took us a little while to figure out the best way to cool the apartment , without using the air conditioning but once we discovered the lover windows in both the bedroom and dining area and opened the front door leaving the wire screen locked, this combination gave a wonderful flow through of air. We did not use many of the facilities of the complex as we spent most of our time touring the island. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We stayed for four nights. The condo was beautiful and super well equipped. You can see that the owners use this as a personal destination. Large comfortable bedroom and one and a half large baths. AC in the bedroom was a nice edition but we were comfortable with the island breeze most of the time. First floor unit with a large walk out patio. Huge front lawn with view towards Shipwreck Beach. Very nice pool. Lovely walkway along the beach. Easy drive or about a 15 minute scenic walk over to Poipu Beach. Wished we had planned to stay longer.

Well appointed, lovely condo was exactly as description and pictures showed. Quiet even in a 1st floor unit. Although it doesn’t have a full view of the ocean, you can see it just a few steps from the lanai and walk a very short distance to Shipwreck Beach. Good location for other beaches and access to the Maha’ulepu Heritage Trail.

Had to contact the owner when the door lock failed. They were very responsive and the issue was quickly resolved. Could not have asked for more.

This spacious, comfortable, and very clean condo has everything you need for a wonderful vacation, from the well-equipped kitchen to the bathroom with soap, shampoo and conditioner for those who travel light. The beautiful beach is steps away. We enjoyed our morning coffee watching the sunrise each morning, the hike to the caves and the short walk to Poipu beach. Being new to Kauai, we were happy to stay on the drier south coast. You won’t be disappointed.

This condo is a great value. Only downside was no central AC, and one of the beach chairs was broken when we arrived but I don't think the owner was aware of this. Overall, great location and very comfortable place to spend two weeks!

This property is in a great location and provided us with everything we needed! Everything was updated and well kept. Shipwreck beach is a VERY short walk outside the back door and a nice sized pool is a short walk in the other direction. Kaua'i is a beautiful island and we enjoyed spending time here. Island wide, air conditioning seems to be very limited. It's not in most restaurants and public areas. This home has air conditioning in the bedroom, but I would have preferred to have it throughout the home. That is no fault of the owner and I should have double checked before our stay!

My wife and I just spent a week at this spectacular condo. First of all, Kathy was very welcoming and available for all questions. The condo was perfect, with a large bedroom (comfortable mattress) nice on-suite and a kitchen that was very well stocked. Having the BBQ across from the lanai was very convenient. The location was prime!, easy access to several nice walks, shipwreck beach and a very quick drive to Poipu beach. We hope to be returning visitors. Thanks so very much,!

It was a great condo, exceptionally clean. The property manager was very helpful with a minor issue. We look forward to our next visit there in Poipu.

June 2022
We booked this place because of many factors. Location to wedding site, affordability, amenities, and location to other activities. It was nothing short of perfect. Kathy is a wonderful person to chat with if something arose. The condo is very comfortable and we will gladly book this place again for when we visit Kaua’i in a couple of years.

Very nice property with easy access to beach and a fabulous pool. Kitchen is very well supplied, and beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler are available. Hot tub is quite a distance, but tennis court is close by.

We really enjoyed our stay. Just a short walk to the beach and we saw whales and turtles.

Perfect for a couple. Bed was comfortable. Half door on shower causes some splatter... Kitchen well equipped. Good breeze passing through when front and back doors open and screen doors closed. Nice to have an air conditioner in bedroom for sleeping. Walkway to Grand Hyatt and Poipu Point excellent!

Beautifully appointed. Everything you need is there for beach, eating, etc. Patio has table 4 chairs and 2 chaise longues.

This updated condo is in a beautiful location. Although there is no ocean view from the condo, the view of the grounds is very nice and a two minute walk brought us to Shipwreck beach. We enjoyed walking the Mahaulepu Heritage trail which runs right by the complex and the grounds of the beautiful Grand Hyatt next door. The owner and on site maintenance contact were immediately responsive to one issue we had. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and the whole condo was immaculate. The condo was exactly as described and more.

The condo has been all updated since Kathy took ownership. Everything is beautiful including all the artwork she has throughout. The condo was well stocked with anything you would need. Next door to the Hyatt and the Beach was a plus. Always quick response when communicating Would definitely stay here again when in the Poipu area.

We loved our 5 days at this beautiful condo. Just steps from the ocean view and Shipwreck Beach! It had everything we needed....a cooler, nice beach chairs and beach towels which we used a lot! The condo was beautiful with a fully appointed kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The shower in the master bath is awesome! We just loved it here and hope to be back some day!

My partner and I had a wonderful stay here. After staying in Princeville for 5 days for the first half of our trip, we were ready for more peace and quiet, and this stay in Poipu exceeded our expectations. The residence was clean, well-ventilated, nicely decorated, and extremely comfortable. We slept VERY well in the king-sized bed. The ceiling fans were a great addition - we tend to like things a bit warmer, so we didn't even need the A/C! Keeping the windows cracked at night gave us a great cross-breeze. Having 1.5 bathrooms is also wonderfully convenient. I loved the shower and the shower pressure. The bathroom vanity with double sinks gave us plenty of space. The kitchen was very well-stocked, and we used the rice cooker for our homemade poke bowls, which was a really lovely addition to have around. The lanai does not look out onto the ocean, but you can see the waves from the right corner - this was perfect, because it meant that we didn't constantly have people standing/walking in front of our window, affording us some much-appreciated privacy. We didn't end up using the TV or DVD player, but the wifi was strong enough to take video calls on the lanai, which was nice. Having a washer & dryer was great too - after all the hiking, surfing, swimming, and kayaking we did, we needed to wash our clothes! All the furniture is really comfortable, and the bath & beach towels were extra soft. All in all, we absolutely loved our stay here, and we definitely want to stay here again in the future!

We were quite pleased with our stay. The unit is updated and clean. Kitchen is well stocked with what you need to prepare your meals, snacks, etc. Very well located near great beaches, snorkeling, hiking, restaurants, and still only a short 20 or so minute ride from the airport although you don’t see or hear any planes as their routes are not near this area. Perfect stay for us. Thank you.

We absolutely loved the clean, spacious apartment so close to Shipwreck and the Hyatt. We walked to the tortoise area and the caves and Maulepu and had a fabulous time. Loved the kitchen and washer/dryer. The TV was a bit of a puzzle, but everything else was great.

We enjoyed our stay in Poipu Sands #416 - the unit is very spacious and well organized. Some of the highlights - very comfortable bed and overall very high quality furniture in the unit, very well stocked kitchen, great outdoor space, and absolutely awesome - two bathrooms. One of the best accommodations we've seen in Hawaii. Location is very close to Shipwreck beach with the famous cliffs from the '6 days, 7 nights' movie, and close to great surfing and snorkeling spots. Kathy is a great host - very helpful and responsive. Highly recommend!

My fiancé and I stayed at Kathy's condo June 2018 and it was absolutely perfect. The location is exactly where you want to be while staying in Poipu... a close walk to Shipwreck's Beach and The Grand Hyatt hotel, Little Fish coffee about a mile or so up the street, and a short drive to a local grocery and delicious restaurants. The condo is spacious, clean and accommodating. We have already sent this listing to many friends who are planning trips to Hawaii and we certainly plan to stay again next time we are in Kauai.

We had an amazing, relaxing trip to Kauai! Kathy was so responsive and informative. The condo was clean and well stocked. We love the Poipu Sands condos and can’t wait to return. If you’re looking for a clean, affordable, smaller condo to rent, this is definitely a great choice. Doesn’t have a view of the ocean from the lanai, but we just pulled our chairs out onto the grass and there it was.

The perfect home away from home. The owners have thoughtfully filled their condo with everything you could possibly need. A great location just minutes onto the beach path. No need to look further!

4.5/5 - Condo was very nice, very clean & spacious, and great location. Short walk to the Hyatt Regency and lots of great walking trails & hiking nearby. It had everything provided, well stocked kitchen, laundy detergent, beach chairs/umbrellas, sunscreen & bug spray, etc. Owner responded quickly to all inquiries. Only small issue was the phone didn’t work & smoke alarm went off for no reason 1 morning and when we reported it, we never got a replacement. Not a big deal. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it.

The pictures are accurate, this rental unit was spacious, current and clean. The property is conveniently located in Poipu on the sunny side of the island an easy drive from the airport. If you like golf the famous Poipu Bay Golf Course is within walking distance and there are 2 more courses within a 10 minute drive. Beaches for swimming, snorkelling and surfing are all just minutes away. Plenty of dinning and shopping nearby. I found the owner Kathy to be very responsive and accommodating. If I ever return to Kauai 100% Poipu Sands is where I would want to be. Wayne
