This modern condo was spacious and comfortable for the four adults in our party. The interior is decorated with iconic views of Kauai, and the air conditioning and ceiling fans kept us cool. It has all the amenities of home. The grounds are beautiful and the pool steps away (no noise from the pool). The Poipu area has many great restaurants and shops, and it was central to everything on the island. The owner was very prompt answering questions. Highly recommend staying here.
The apartment is perfect for a family vacation. The bedrooms downstairs allowed the adults to hangout after the kids went to bed, and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking meals. We also enjoyed using the beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, and sand toys everyday - it made going to Poipu Beach easy and fun. Speaking of beaches, Poipu is great for small children with a little protected cove area and sea turtles swimming all around. We would definitely stay here again!
Really great location, clean and had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, plenty of beach chairs, etc.
The condo was just as pictured and was extremely well stocked with everything you could think of. We really enjoyed having the bedrooms downstairs. We could keep them cool for sleeping and have the upstairs air conditioner off and enjoy the fresh ocean air. The pool was never crowded and a nice afternoon break. The complex was quiet and well maintained. The location was perfect for us. We spent many days hiking on the island and were also able to enjoy beach days by the condo. Poipu beach is about a 5 minute walk and Shipwreck beach is about a 20 min walk through a nice greenbelt. We hope to return someday!
Very nice unit, only problem was sliding doors do not lock so potential for break ins . Also, beds were way to soft.
A beautiful and very clean place with a modern and fully equipped kitchen. The decor of the condo is wonderful and captures the aloha spirit of Kauai. The rental is steps away from Brennecke’s and Poipu beaches. My family and I will always remember our time spent at Nihi Kai!
House was very well furnished and steps to the beaches. Master bathroom shower was amazing, as were the views from the balcony. The kitchen had everything you could ask for to cook meals. And the host was super easy to work with, plus the self check in process was a breeze. Thanks also for the beach chairs, beach towels, and toys for kids!
Very comfortable condo if you can handle stairs
Perfect for our family of 4 adults. Location was a dream and the unit had everything we needed. Property manager replied quickly when we had a minor issue we had with entry code ( our error reading the instructions!) Thanks for a great vacation!
This is a nice unit in a good location close to Poipu beach. Easy to walk to beach and restaurants. Adequately stocked and comfortable beds. On the negative side, sliding glass doors and screens are in poor condition and are very hard to open, close and lock. Screens would not stay in the tracks.
Also be aware of ongoing construction right in front of the unit with chain link fencing and heavy equipment right in front of the balcony. This significantly detracted from the enjoyment of the ocean view and grounds. I was told fencing would be gone well before the date of my visit but that was not the case and it doesn’t look like the work is anywhere close to completion. If views are an important factor in choice of a condo I would not recommend this one until work has been completed, otherwise you will be disappointed.
The inside of the condo is just as pictured--very lovely. Comfy beds, great location, very nice pool, and great communication with owner. He is so very kind. Please do ask the owner about the construction site right outside the back lanai which is in between the condo and view of the ocean. It did interfere a bit with our stay. Again, the location on the South Shore is great! We had a wonderful time in Kauai!
Was easy to rent and a nice property
Our family had a great stay at Stephen’s condo. We loved being able to see and hear the ocean, and our kids loved the pool. The kitchen was well stocked, and we appreciated the small extras like games, laundry soap, and sand toys. Highly recommend.
The location is perfect for walking to the beach parks as well as nearby shopping areas. The recently remodeled kitchen/ living area is well appointed and decorated. Very comfortable for working / relaxing before enjoying a day out and about the island. Would stay here again!
Quick walk to the beach! Clean and well stocked. Would stay again. Thx!
This was a terrific place. Proximity to beach and sunsets were ideal, just a two minute stroll. The condo was fully outfitted and having air conditioning was key in the bedrooms. Games on the patio overlooking the ocean and swimming pool for later in the day we’re wonderful. Great for family with two adult kids.
Beautiful condo with everything we needed. Kitchen well stocked. We appreciated having laundry and dishwashing detergent available. Backpack beach-chairs and umbrella are so nice. Must be ok with stairs. Bedrooms downstairs are quiet and the king bed and pillows are so comfortable. We didn’t use the twin beds. AC worked well. Nice area for walks and short walk to the beach. We saw sea turtles and monk seals on the beach each day. The only downside was the area the lanai looks over is currently undergoing some type of plumbing construction. This really impacted the view.
This was a great spot for a quick getaway. The location was amazing and the host was kind and responsive. We had a great time!
Steven was a great host. They had just finished a renovation, and the condo is very well appointed with all new appliances, tastefully redone, and a nice space to be in with a proper Hawaii vibe. The upper deck has ocean views and the lower lanai opens to the lawn area with direct access to the pool. Brennecke's Beach is a short 2 blocks away, where we spent most of our time in the water... best bodysurfing waves in the area. Keiki and Poipu beach (kids swimming and snorkeling, then surfing farther down) and the hotels (for outdoor lunch with ocean views) are just on the other side of grassy Poipu Beach Park. A great spot. We will be back.
The property was clean and functional. The only issues were the lack of a hotel-type safe to store valuables and the beds in the second bedroom were child size. Other than that, the unit was well equipped and in a convenient location. We would stay there again.
We really enjoyed our stay in Kauai! This unit is in a great location with ability to walk to beaches and restaurants. The place was really comfortable and well decorated. Loved the comfy king bed.
Great experience from check in and to check out. Very clean and smelled fresh! Shower was very luxurious!
Perfect for our needs as we were there for a family wedding at the Grand Hyatt, Poipu.
Lovely 2br condo. Close to the sandy beach. Sea turtles rested on Poipu Beach every night. Complex was beautiful. Nice pool. Steven was always quick to answer questions. Highly recommend this location! ALOHA
As some reviewers have mentioned, the property is even better than the photos. Everything was clean and had everything we needed for our trip. Walking distance to beaches and restaurants. Easy parking right next to the building. Check-in and check-out process was flawless. Even though we visited during the summer, the temperature inside was not bad at all. We didn't have to run the A/C the entire time, but when we did it cooled off the rooms quickly. Would absolutely stay here again!
Overall experience: Excellent!
Should have booked more days.
We had a great stay - condo was perfect and Stephen was very responsive and easy to work with. We loved the location with an easy walk to the beach, and the condo had everything we needed. While we had a great week and would absolutely recommend the condo, there is an occasional sewage smell while sitting on the lanai. We were always on the go so it didn't affect us much. Overall highly recommend!
Our stay was amazing! We had high expectations that Stephen exceeded. Communication was outstanding prior to and throughout the trip. The condo had everything needed for a comfortable stay for our family of four. Location and view were perfect! Wish we had taken advantage of the pool more. We will definitely be staying here again! Mahalo! JS
The condo was ideally located close to wonderful beaches and was clean, comfortable and well-stocked. Great stay.
Short walk to the beach and close by lots of great shops, you have everything you need in this area. The place was very comfortable, has everything you need and great view from the porch!!! Definitely would come back and stay!
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful condo! Really nice furnishing, great location, seaview, we really enjoyed our stay! Mahalo
Can’t beat the very short walk to Brenneckes!
My family and I truly LOVED this beautifully decorated condo located in Poipu. Sitting on the balcony was so relaxing! Who doesn’t like ocean views? My husband and I also played tennis (we hadn’t touched racquets in 22 years) and enjoyed the ocean view pool. Stephen was very communicative and promptly answered any questions I had. The condo was stocked. We plan to come again!

Everything was seamless…. Enjoyed our stay. The owner is beyond wonderful!
Nice property, beautiful view, clean, and well stocked!
Plenty of space for the 5 of us. Lots of amenities, AC a plus. Close to our surf spot. Good times!
This property is wonderful the condo is week equipped and comfortable. The view and distance from the beach is amazing. Everything was just as described and we had an amazing time here. I would definitely rent this property again.
Would recommend to anyone going to Poipu
We loved staying here! The condo was perfect, just as the photos showed. It was clean and comfortable, with great views of the ocean. We loved the amazing proximity to the beach and enjoyed spending time at the pool. We hope we’ll be back again soon. Thanks for a great stay!
The property is excellent and well maintained, good access to a great shore line where we saw turtles enjoying sun every day of our stay. Owner responded to communication quickly. Although we had difficulty in getting wifi connection to Laptop, cell phones were able to be connected but a minor issue. Overall great property and a owner
Location and Quality of Condo met our expectations.
The location was nice and the view was good. The condo could use some upgrades. (Second Bathroom, beds). Unfortunately, this condo is very close to the poolside restrooms… which resulted in occasional smelly conditions at the pool and on the lanai. Our condo owner was great to communicate with and is taking our concerns to heart. If you don’t plan to relax at the condo all day, this one is great for location.
We were a short walk to an excellent beach and close to shopping/food as well. In addition, the property was in great shape and had some bonus extras like a pool, pickle ball courts and gas grills in a covered pavilion area. We could not have asked for anything more.
We loved this villa. It was very convenient to all things south Kauai. We had everything we needed in the villa. Everything in there seems like it is new. Great communication with Stephen. The villa was clean and in great shape for all our needs. Thank you for sharing your home.
Condo was as advertised and just a short walk to the beautiful beaches of Poipu. Stephen was very responsive throughout and a very helpful.
We had a great time in the condo. bedrooms downstairs and kitchen and living upstairs made it comfortable for some to sleep and others to watch tv and sunsets. short walk to beach.
This is a wonderful unit and I must compliment Steve, the owner, on being so responsive! We had some questions on check in and during our stay, and he responded back immediately. That was really terrific and much appreciated.
This place is clean clean clean and so well stocked, and beautifully furnished. It is very tastefully decorated in the typical Hawaiian style.
The layout of the unit is nice with the bedrooms and the bathrooms downstairs and living upstairs. There is no bathroom upstairs if that matters to anyone. Brand new flooring except for on the stairs. That was wonderful because it never makes sense to me to have carpet in a place where you might have sand on your feet! Yuck.
We used the pool and that was nice. One nice thing is that the beach is about a five minute walk away, and all the kids staying at the complex seemed to be at the beach boogie boarding so the adults had the pool to themselves. There is no hot tub. We usually stay at a different place that doesn’t have a pool, and mom really wanted a pool, so we tried out this place.
Parking on the street is very easy, it is easy to bring your groceries and belongings into the unit. Very well situated in the complex next to the side street. You could take your bags in and out into the lower level of the unit without climbing the stairs at the front door (which was no big deal either!).
It is really nice being so close to the Poipu Beach Park and Brennecke’s restaurant. We took a lot of really nice walks.
There were three sea turtles on the sand that were very well protected by the lifeguards. They were roped off and no one was bothering them. Beautiful! They had their own little orange cones around them that said “green sea turtles resting“! You could also see them in the surf/ocean but in other spots on the island we have stayed they are a lot more plentiful.
The view of the ocean is just beautiful from the balcony. To see the sunset everyone walks down the street and sits on the lava wall and watches the sunset.
The only negative is that there are a lot of powerlines that mar the ocean view but we do need electricity, ha. It’s tough to complain - we are in paradise here.
Very good washer and dryer downstairs in the unit. Good coffee maker. Lots of good supplies, spices, equipment for going to the beach, etc.
We will definitely stay here again. Mahalo, Steve!!
Great condo, great location. Had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. We saw seals and sea turtles at the beach right by the unit. Loved having beach chairs and boogie boards provided. Highly recommend!
Exactly what we needed in a vacation condo. A huge thanks to Steven & family for providing an excellent selection of beach gear. The host is very attentive and easy to contact should the need arise.
Property was as advertised and provided the perfect location for our family vacation.
Very pleasant with an ocean view. Nice art to feel that the unit has a sould. Great location with one block walk to the beach. We saw sea turtles and Monk seals.
We felt so fortunate to be in this tastefully decorated Hawaiin home next to the best beaches in Poipu. We were able walk to all the beach and a few local restaurants. The sunsets from our own balcony and pool area were amazing. We would definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay. The property was great, it was close to the beach and Stephen was very helpful and gracious. Highly recommend!
Great place. Wonderful location by the beach. Nice pool. Had great stay!

Loved the AC, overlooked the ocean, steps away from the beach, beach supplies and had 4 balconies/lani’s. Nicely decorated!!
Great property and great communication. Stephen was awesome.
The unit was very nice, clean and just as advertised. Pretty tropical decor. Nice view from the front lanai of the water. It would be nice if there was a table on the lanai to set drinks and one more comfortable chair (there was only one chair). But it does have a high top table with 4 bar chairs.
Walkable to beach and restaurants. We would definitely recommend staying there. The only downsides are the vacuuflush toilets are very loud and could hear it in the other bedroom so would recommend new toilets and the fan in the living room is loud. We only used air conditioning once for a short time as the afternoon sun was warm so it is nice to have that option. Stephen was very easy to communicate with. Thank you for a lovely stay!
This property is in a great location with lots of things to do and see close by. It was just my husband and myself staying this time but this rental would be perfect for a family get away. We will definitely stay here again.
Stephen’s property was clean, easy to access, comfortable and ready for my family to enjoy. Will book again or recommend to a friend! Thank you!
It's something wonderful, waking up and falling asleep to the sounds of crashing surf and tropical birds (plus chickens). Staying here was definitely the right call.
This home is well kept and has all the amenities to make you feel like you are at home. You may need to stop at the Koloa town market for a couple basics, but the spice cabinet is fairly well stocked.
This was a wonderful place for our family.
Had a great time in poipu
Great condo with an amazing beach for toddlers & snorkeling within walking distance. Recommend turning the ac off, open windows, & enjoy the breeze. & Puka Dog is a must--especially if you're vegetarian.
Steve (owner) was always quick to respond about inquires. Highly recommend to stay here. We definitely plan to visit again!
We had the best time and are so happy with the condo and location. It had everything we needed, including beautiful views from the lanai. There was a baby gate and pack n play for our baby, which was very convenient! We would absolutely come back and stay here!!
The property location is perfect . Can see the ocean from the balcony . The house is freshly painted and has all the necessary amenities in the house. For us, one of the bedroom AC stopped working , but the fans in all rooms helped. The owner provided us info on activities and places to eat which was really helpful. Overall the owner is very helpful and responsive and the property is at a perfect location.
Our stay in Poipu was very memorable. The condo is very clean and comfortable, and Steven the owner is nice to work with to ensure you have everything you need. We enjoyed how close It was to Poipu Beach and would take our coffee each morning to look for the resting turtles. We ate our meals on the patio each night and enjoyed the lovely sunsets.
Excellent location in quiet spot close to Poipu Beach Park. Villa complex clean and well kept with nice, non-crowded pool. The owner Stephen communicated with us before our stay and was a wonderful host. Beds comfortable and property spacious with multiple balconies. Highly recommend, very peaceful.
This place was beautiful! Lots of amenities and close walk to the beach. Nicely decorated, comfortable, and air conditioned! Owner was extremely helpful. Really great stay and would definitely stay there again!
Everything was great! Love the property... Super location! And the owners are wonderful!!
We lucked out choosing Poipu and Stephen's apartment for the majority of our stay in Poipu. While there was rain and some flooding everywhere, Poipu was the best location for some sun and really nice beaches/food/food market nearby. The condo is about 50 steps from the water, and a handful more from the beach. A really nice layout separates living from bedrooms (different floors) and the lanai has a postcard-perfect view and layout. Stephen's recommendations were on-point (read carefully, there are some gems in there). Overall we loved our stay in this condo and would love to be back soon!
My family of four spent over three weeks at Steven’s condo. It’s ideal in so many ways. It has a large table and open living room space, with updated flooring and a nice TV. The upstairs lanai has a lovely ocean view, especially of sunsets. Downstairs there are two bedrooms (king & 2 twins) with en suite bathrooms. The condo is in a villa with lovely gardens, steps from the pool and gorgeous parks and beaches, as well as a green belt for walks. Steven was super responsive and helpful during our stay. Highly recommend!
We really enjoyed how close it was to the beach and the view from the ocean. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was even snorkel equipment and beach chairs to use.
AC was great perk to use while sleeping. View of ocean was good. Short walk to beach. Kitchen is fully stocked. Lots of brach equipment ( boogie boards, chairs, masks) available. Wish there were more cleaning supplies available to keep the place sparkling during our stay. ( There are Clorox wipes, Purell and rubbing alcohol) New tile floors look nice.
Beautiful location and very close to everything you'd ever want or need. Highly highly recommend staying here.
Great property with pool, tennis, grills, landscaping, etc. Wonderful view from the condo. Quick walk to beaches. Short drive to shops, restaurants. We saw lots of turtles in the ocean plus one on Po’ipu beach. Recommend taking a tour at the National Tropical Botanical Garden near Spouting Horn.
Very well appointed, clean, comfortable, nice Hawaiian touches such as art, furniture.
