Enjoy captivating ocean views from this spacious 3 bedroom condo, where you can relax with spectacular sunsets on the lanai.

There is air-conditioning throughout the condo, including the bedrooms. You can control the temperature in each room individually. If the tradewinds are blowing, you can have the windows open and listen to the ocean. If not, the comfort of AC is available for each room and preference.

Our condo is on the top level so you won’t be disturbed by neighbors above. On the main floor is the updated kitchen, living/dining room, a half bath/laundry room and oceanview lanai. Also on this floor is a 50inch Smart TV, free WiFi, and Bluetooth speakers.

All three bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with showers. On the second floor, the master bedroom has a California King bed and a 40 inch smart TV. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and the third floor has two twins that can be made into a king. All the bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, TVs, and air-conditioning.

The clifftop complex is designed for fun and relaxation with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, & tennis court. The barbeque area has 3 grills and the grounds are studded with tropical flowers.

Close to the condo is a wide variety of shopping and dining experiences. Two of our favorites are Kukui'ula Village and Old Koloa Town.

Nearby there are many beaches to explore. Walk east to the world-class Hyatt and Shipwreck Beach, west will take you to Poipu Beach. Snorkel with turtles and parrotfish, ride the waves, or just hang out at a gorgeous beach. Have fun!

We very much enjoyed our stay. We we’re Grandparents vacationing with our adult daughter, her husband and toddler. The unit is as described, clean and well stocked with everything you need - with a great view of the ocean and the pool, and in the best area of Poipu. Walk in one direction right on to the Heritage Trail that goes by the Grand Hyatt and onward for a gorgeous hike Or in the other direction a nice walk to Poipu beach. The only caveat is that if stairs are a problem this is not a good choice. Otherwise I highly recommend.

Nice walk to several beaches and snorkel spots. Great view of ocean. Very accommodating management—they let us check out late. Loved it.

This condo is in a great location to get to the beaches, shopping, and it is centrally located to get to events. It has a nice view of the ocean and had everything that we needed in the kitchen. The third level does get a bit warm but the AC makes it quite comfortable. The facility was clean and we enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The host was very easy to work with and communicated all that we needed. We had a wonderful stay.

Great location and beautiful views!! Communication with property manager and owner was great. The third floor bathroom was a bit small especially the sink but in the end the unit worked out for our group.

The accommodations were perfect for our group of six. The condo was well stocked with spices and other kitchen items. The view from the balcony is amazing. The property is very clean and easy to get to. Please keep in mind if you have anyone in your party that has a problem climbing stairs there are several stairs to the condo and no elevators. There is no beach at the property but they have a lovely pool and the beach is not far from the condo. We were only at the property for three nights but enjoyed staying and would recommend this property.

Very good location with pretty much most anything you could ask for in a Kauai rental. It had a homey feel with a great view. Easy access to all the Southside has to offer within a relatively easy drive!

Fantastic condo in a great location. We loved being so close to the hiking trail and to the beach. Well equipped with all of the essentials. The ocean view was beautiful and we really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We will definitely be back.

Lovely, comfortable, very clean. Communication was great, condo was as described. Beds were comfortable, nice space for us to stay with our adult children for 5 days. Helpful to have beach equipment provided (towels, chairs, boogie boards etc). Kitchen was well equipped including knives that actually worked (a frustrating rarity in other rentals) & nice appliances. We appreciated the AC, breakfasts on the lanai, the lovely view. About a 15 minute walk to Poipu beach where there is great snorkeling (try Snorkel Bob's for renting equipment--very helpful & professional & excellent covid precautions). Other beach parks are 20-30 min away & worth exploring. Lovely spot with benches on the condo complex property for watching the sunset (we had a great sunset picnic there). Pool is big & was empty much of the time we were there. We were delighted that quiet hours were well respected & we never heard any neighbors. Hope we can come back again. Definitely recommend this rental.

My family of 6 stayed in this condo when we decided to stay another week in Kauai. My husband and our 4 older (adult-size) children. The location was perfect in Poipu. We had friends at The Hyatt and the coastal trail outside of the condo was wonderful for a 10 min walk back and forth. I also loved the walk to Shipwreck Beach as well. My husband and I sat outside on the balcony every morning drinking coffee and one day even saw dolphins swim by. The amenities were absolutely perfect for our family. The 2 twins in the 3rd bedroom were perfect for us. I loved all of the bathrooms. The kitchen was clean and had necessary supplies. The unit having a washer and dryer was great for us. I also loved the condo offered beach amenities. Thank you Liz for a wonderful experience.

There was plenty of room for me and my family (6 total) and overall the accomodations were nice. However, the master bedroom had the only comfortable bed - the rest were passable for a night or two but were fairly uncomfortable. Also - if you want to park two vehicles let them know in advance or they won't leave two parking passes! The view out the lanai was great.

Everything you need is close by. The condo is well stocked and very clean. Lots of places to eat, swim, relax, golf, hike or shop. We saw sea turtles everyday and a large pod of dolphins another. At Poipu beach mink seals were near by but not bothering anyone. Snorkeling there is great. If you take the road past the grand Hyatt until it ends, there is a short east hike to a cave and secluded beach. Easy hike for kids and adults of all physical stamina. Though only 20 miles, the trip to Hiamea Canyon and falls takes an hour to drive to. The hike is only for those who are prepared for hills and changing weather conditions.

The property was just as it was described! Spacious, clean and well stocked. We had a beautiful ocean view and it was so peaceful listening to the ocean. Our family of 5 adults had a fabulous time. We used the beach chairs, towels, cooler and boogey boards that were provided. It was a quick 8 minute walk to Poipu Beach and around 15 minutes to Shipwreck beach and was centrally located to many activities, shopping and dining. The pool and hot tub was also great. We had a wonderful experience working with the owner Liz and especially Novella the property manager.

The condo was okay - clean and well appointed. It is not well suited to small children or seniors. Too many stairs, beds on 3rd floor were very uncomfortable (floor was more comfortable), and the ice maker made ice but did not dispense.

There are three bedrooms with a bathroom for each bedroom, which is perfect for a large family. The location (2 minute drive to Poipu Beach is great. The view of the ocean is outstanding.

Liz’s condo was so lovely! Comfortable, clean and a great location with 180-degree views of the ocean. Novella with the property management company was incredibly kind, helpful and patient with me when I had questions throughout the week. Overall we had a wonderful stay and I would recommend this condo to anyone looking to vacation in Poipu! Thank you, Liz and Novella!

This is a beautiful condo in a perfect location. Walking distance to beaches that include snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing, swimming, and turtle watching. From the lanai, we saw whales, dolphins and beautiful sunsets. Walking distance to Brennecke’s, Little Fish, and other great food options. Perfectly situated between the Grand Hyatt and the Sheraton with great beaches, food and bars, and good hiking along the beach. The condo itself is beautiful and very well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals and accommodate a range of ages and families. The hosts are very engaged and helpful. It was an incredible experience!

We love this area of Poipu so anything would have been wonderful. Kitchen has a nice update but unit is in need of painting and general clean up. Be aware that 3rd bedroom is at the top of steep stairs and the bathroom is marginally useable.

Rental is clean and spacious. We traveled w/ out 3 teens and there was plenty of space. The 3 bathrooms and a/c are a big plus. Rental is a bit out dated and we weren't able to check in before 4pm. Kitchen has a few basic spices and oil. Overall a great rental, great location. Mahalo!!

Excellent ocean view at balcony. New appliances , I like the fridge with filtered water supply, this save me in buying bottle water. Anyway, the ceiling light is not working at the attic room during the week staying there.

Our family has rented many places over the years through VRBO, all over the world. And this place in Poipu ranks near the top. From the responsiveness of the owner and the local manager, to the home’s cleanliness and ease of off-hours check-in, we couldn’t have asked for better. The location was ideal for seeing all parts of the island and getting to some fabulous meals. This is a smaller condo complex, which we liked. Pool was fabulous, and beaches were close. Definite thumbs up from all 5 members of our family.

Photos were very accurate. What we saw is what we got. Beautiful! Quiet and restful. We all loved the amenities. There was everything we needed in the kitchen to make many meals “at home”. The ocean breezes cooled most of the time but using the air conditioner sparingly was greatly appreciated. The three levels gave us a chance to get our exercise and we’re not a drawback. We would most certainly stay here again.

We loved everything about this property. The location and view from the room is stunning. The condo was fully stocked with everything we needed and more. We appreciated the beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. The AC was appreciated. The contact with the property manager was great. Highly recommend staying here
