This condo is great and everything we hoped it would be (and as advertised). The location is perfect, the complex is quiet, but only a 10 minute walk to the action at Poipu. We would love to stay here again on a future visit.
Amazing 1 yr Anniversary
This is our second time staying in this incredible condo. The view from the lanai is stunning. We saw whales, dolphins and turtles and beautiful sunsets from the lanai. Very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Highly recommended.
Beautiful property. True vacation spot.Modern upscale accommodations.Spotless.Owners and
Property manager pays attention to detail for a relaxing, pleasant stay
Our stay at the poipu condo was amazing. The beachfront view was breathtaking!!!! We saw whales right from the lanai every morning!
When we needed extra clean towels, the property manager was very prompt and attentive to our requests and needs. She was awesome. From the beginning of our Vrbo reservation, the owners treated us like family staying in their home. Any questions we had , they quickly returned our emails or calls. Highly recommend staying here Thank you 😊
Easily entered. Fans going. We needed to be passive solar savvy. Blinds closed in afternoon until sun went down. Kitchen perfect. Bedrooms and baths clean and working well. Tons of water pressure. Lovely time.
The condo was just as described in the listing and the 2nd bedroom was set with 2 twins per our request. We loved the proximity to the ocean with its beautiful sunset views and the added bonus of whale watching from our lanai! The condo grounds were beautiful and quiet. we'd definitely stay here again!
This was our third time staying in the condo in Poipu. We love the location, enjoying the Lanai for sunrise and sunset was the highlight of each day. The close proximity to Poipu Beach and great snorkeling is also a plus. The access via the digital lock made coming and going much easier. Love the new countertops in the bathrooms and kitchen.
We plan to stay here again next year if our schedule allows.
Great place to stay! Location, comfort, and cleanliness. It can get quite warm in the condo. The fans are nice, but not quite enough if you're heat-sensitive. Other than that, perfect.
We had a fabulous time here! The condo is wonderful! Great kitchen for cooking. The master bedroom is right next to the lanai so we could sleep while listening to the ocean waves. We were able to watch the sunrises and the sunsets from the lanai. Also, we watched turtles and dolphins swimming by us on the lanai! We hope to return soon! Mahalo!
The listing was very accurate and location was perfect. Was able to watch turtles from the lanai and a 2 minute drive to Poipu beach. No AC, but plenty of fans provided which made evenings more than bearable. The unit was stocked with everything you may need during your stay and you could tell they’d put a lot of thought into it. I would stay here again.
Beautiful ocean view with occasional turtles made our stay special. Kitchen was well stocked allowing us to cook like home. The night sky was amazing even when floating on our backs in the pool.
Only drawbacks were lack of air conditioning and screen doors needed repairs.
Pros - Location, views, communication
Cons - dated, no escape from the heat
We had a great time, great view of the ocean and sunset.
Thanks for the fruits basket we throughly enjoyed all the goodies.
We saw turtles couple of times from our lanai.
Couldn't be any better.
Nicely maintained and prepared property. On the water with waves splashing on the rocks and turtles and dolphins in view. Also sunset views. Close to shops and restaurants.
The owners clearly care about the entire experience for the renters. So many items provided for the renters it was wonderful. We have rented VRBO’s all over the country in prime locations/destinations and have never felt so welcomed. The unit itself, cannot get a better view. Unit is updated and clean. Complex is updated and clean.
Beautiful location. Beautiful home. This was the perfect place for me and my family. Well stocked. Clean.
Our stay was everything we imagined it would be and more. We had all the comforts of home with the most amazing views. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit kauai. Mahalo!
Amazing vacation condo!
Big waves breaking all day and night right outside the condo! Saw dolphins, turtles mana rays while having coffee on the deck. Close to the beach and also had a great pool. The condo is well done and very comfortable for our family of 4
Can not wait to return!
Everything about this property was just as described! The Location is Breathtaking!! We shared with special friends - 2 couples total and we had such an Amazing trip! I must have 100 pictures of sunsets… every night we made sure to sit on lanai to watch…. GORGEOUS!! Highly recommend this property! We had no complaints or problems!! ENJOY!! It had been 16 years since we visited Kauai and were thrilled to see it is still So Beautiful and quaint!!
Well-equipped, well-maintained and conveniently located condo. Enjoyed the views, pool and Pickleball! Saw turtles in the ocean from the lanai and our own personal blowhole! Enjoyed the convenience of the dishwasher, washer and dryer and two bathrooms!
This location in Poipu was perfect. Close to both Poipu & Shipwreck beach. The views from the patio were fabulous. Bud and Amanda were wonderful to work with and any small thing that came up was addressed immediately. Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with us and can’t wait to return ❤️
We stayed in Bud and Kathy's Condo for 7 magic nights. Communication from Bud was quick and complete prior to the stay and lightening fast from on island contact for the one need (which was I can't read instructions!). From the Welcome Basket and note on arrival to the ease in leaving they have mastered everything a 5 star host should in this condo (extra bath towels, beach towels, fishing rods, a trolley for the longish walk to load and unload car!) Property is as advertised or better, the crashing of waves on the rocks for 7 days/nights is right outside the screen door to master and adjoining living room. Sunset from the deck is soothing evening place for dinner, full sized everything in the kitchen which was well enough stocked. All of the appliances work, the pool and hot tub are relaxing and come with the welcomed trade winds. This is my second stay in Poipu, and I hope to return to Bud and Kathy's Oasis again soon. The value is excellent for this property, a bit of a splurge but worth every penny and then some!
Take a roomy condo, combine with the ideal ocean view and great hospitality, and you have the perfect stay in Kauai. Our visit started with easy check-in and a nice welcome basket from our hosts, then we enjoyed falling asleep to the pounding surf every night. Being away from the more commercial areas of Kauai was another plus. We can’t recommend this place highly enough and definitely would stay here again. Thanks!
This was a fantastic property, we loved it! Our condo had the best views. Truly as fantastic as the photos!!
The property is exactly as advertised. Perfect location and close to great beaches with snorkeling and boogie boarding for the whole family. The sunset and ocean views from the lanai are spectacular. Falling asleep and waking every day to the sound of crashing waves was incredible. Owners were great to work with, too. Thanks Bud and Kathy!
Spectacular location, clean, well-equipped property. Host is super responsive.
We enjoyed our visit. The Lanai is overlooking the water and is situated to allow the best sunset views. The location is close to the Grand Hyatt which has great restaurants. We would rent again.
Had a great time and thought it was an excellent location at e reasonable cost.
Close quarters made privacy and sound management somewhat of a challenge.
Stayed here for a few days with friends. There was plenty of space for all of us. Spent most of our time out on the patio since the weather was nice and the view was spectacular. Took advantage of the nearby beaches, the pool and hot tub, and the grills available at the complex. Great location! The only downside is no AC, although from what I understand that is typical in Hawaii. Luckily the weather was nice and there were plenty of fans.
Loved the aloha gift basket.
No A/C, but fans, cross breezes, and water/ice dispenser kept unit comfortable in March. Home style feel. Detailed instructions from owner.
Beautiful property, plenty of room for 2 couples to spread out. We love the openness and made sure we were back for Happy Hour and the amazing sunsets on the lanai. Kitchen was well stocked, we used the grills for fresh Ahi. Great hikes nearby and close to everything- loved Koloa town, Waimea Canyon and kayaking in Wailua. Hope to return next year!
This place was unbelievable, such a relaxing patio with views of the surf crashing on the rocks, sea turtles, and whales breaching in the distance. The interior is a little older, but well kept. The location on the water with the view is everything , we walked to a beach from both sides.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bud and Kathy's condo. It was clean and comfortable and the sound of the crashing waves outside our bedroom at night had us sleeping like a baby. Not to mention having our coffee in the morning and cocktail hour at night on the lanai watching the whales frolic right in front of us. Stunning!
The condo is situated right on the coast - perfect for watching whales, dolphins and turtles go by. We stayed in late December and were able to see whales and dolphins from the lanai. Besides the fabulous location, the condo is well stocked, clean and updated. The location in Poipu is a great starting point for many adventures. I highly recommend snorkeling at nearby Lawai Beach, walking the Heritage Trail (which starts at Shipwreck Beach), and driving up to Waimea Canyon.
Amanda, the property manager, was incredibly helpful and nice - reach out to her if you have any issues at all.
The only drawback was with the lack of storage in the master bedroom. My husband and I didn’t unpack our suitcases for the week because there was so little space for clothing.
I would definitely recommend this VRBO!
Loved, loved the location! One of the best family vacations.
Great unit in an excellent location, unit is 10(?) feet from the cliff's edge with great views, nothing to block the views from the porch , @ 10 min walk to Poipu Beach and Brenneckes Beach, kitchen fully stocked with everything needed and snorkelling and other gear provided, big bedrooms, compex has a pool but didn't use it, definitely recommend and if returning to Kauai would happily stay here again
No way to describe how amazing the view is from the lanai. Turtles! Dolphins! Rainbows! Sea spray! Falling asleep to the sound of waves! The ocean is right outside your door! And close to beaches and little fish coffee. Couldn’t be better. Snorkeled everyday.
This place was everything we expected! View was amazing with the ocean, turtles and we got to see a few whales...the drive to the beach was quick and it was just as we hoped. This was our first time here and would love to come back. I would recommend this place highly!!! Only back draw was no air conditioning and even with closing everything up in the afternoon it was almost unbearable....but the pool was right there for us to cool off!
Very happy with our stay at Bud and Kathy's condo. Both the condo unit and complex are clean, quiet and well taken care of! Sunsets from the lanai are great. Also enjoyed daily turtle and dolphin sightings.
This condo was all that was posted, plus some! Beautifully updated kitchen and bathrooms and awesome views that included dolphins and sea turtles daily! Bud was very prompt with our questions. Would definitely stay here again.
Due to many Covid delays, this was our Honeymoon/ 2nd anniversary dream trip to Hawaii. Bud and Kathy's condo is beautiful!! The pictures do not do it justice! The View is everything and more. Watching the pounding surf and spectacular sunsets from the lanai every day was a highlight of the stay! We saw numerous sea turtles and a couple of dolphin pods swim by! The condo is stocked with everything you could possibly need and is beautifully updated and so clean!! Located between 2 beautiful beaches, Po'piu and Shipwreck beach, each within walking distance. Although we did not even have time to enjoy the pool, we did check it out and it looked very inviting! We highly recommend Bud and Kathy's condo for a true home away from home stay!
It is a "hike" to the condo when dealing with luggage, groceries, etc., however the view is outstanding! The condo stays very warm and muggy (proximity to breaking waves?). No AC.
Wonderfully appointed condo in a great location. Walking distance to
Poipu Beach. Terrific restaurants all around- we took Bud’s advice and made reservations at Dolphin Poipu, Eating House 1849, Red Salt. And south East Asian. Lunch at Honu Bar. All terrific. Gets a little hot in the afternoon but it is Aloha time.
The place and location is awesome, really enjoyed it and can’t wait to be back
The listed property was exactly as advertised. Would go back tomorrow if I could
Beautiful property with great view. Bathrooms are very nice and overall very well appointed. The kitchen is nicely stocked. One of the better properties around and in a great location.
The location was great the set up of the condo was awesome. Only thing I wish I had was AC other than that everything else was amazing..
We had a terrific vacation at this condo. The view from the lanai is outstanding with turtles, rays, and dolphins parading by on a regular basis, it was so relaxing and enjoyable to just sit and watch.
The condo complex is very well maintained. The pool and spa were sparkling clean. It was also very quiet.
The beds were very comfortable which is something that my wife and I are sensitive to.
The condo is comfortable and well furnished, the kitchen has everything that we needed.
All and all we had a very pleasant time and were glad that we were able to stay there.
Hope to stay here again
This condo was exactly as advertised. Beautiful views of ocean and sunsets and sunrises. No reason to leave it. We stayed in a lot and cooked most meals here.
The property was as advertised, the view from balcony is just breathtaking (excellent!), clean
The unit is in the most beautiful location.
