POIPU SHORES 101A AT KOLOA KAI VACATION RENTALS

Any closer to the ocean and your feet would get wet! Poipu Shores 101A sits directly oceanfront, allowing your ohana (family) to experience the best of Hawaii up close and personal.

This condo has been completely updated with three a/c units and high-tech touches like an iPod dock, DVD player, and free WiFi. Curl up on the sectional couch to get amazing views through the patio doors and large picture windows.

Just like home, the fully-equipped and updated kitchen has everything you need to feed your hungry guests. Serve up your meals around the table just off the kitchen or out on the lanai’s four-person patio table.

The views don’t stop once you go to bed; the main bedroom has a huge picture window overlooking the Pacific. The guest room is well-appointed with extra sleeping accommodations for more guests.

Beautifully redone, both bathrooms have high-end touches like marble counters and tile showers. The condo comes with other helpful amenities like a stackable washer and dryer, linens, and beach towels.

Modern amenities make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets.

Why We Love This Home

Just Steps from the Ocean: The condo sits right on the ocean, so close you can taste and smell the saltwater. During the day, sit on the private lanai to watch sea turtles and dolphins splash in the blue waters as the warm breezes blow across your face. In the winter months, observe humpback whales migrate through the area.
Convenient Access to Pool: Located on the ground floor, the condo’s private lanai is the closest to the pool entrance. Wake up each morning and claim your spot around the heated pool that sits right on the water.
Instagram-Worthy Sunsets: Each night, gather in the grassy area next to the pool with your fellow travelers to experience some of the most incredible sunsets. Enjoy amazing views and make new friends in the process!

Grab the towels, umbrellas, and beach chairs, and take a short five-minute walk to Brennecke Beach, a hot spot for turtle-watching and bodyboarding. A large grassy area with picnic tables and covered pavilions connects Brennecke to popular Poipu Beach. Along with snorkeling, swimming, and surfing, Poipu Beach also has a small baby beach protected from the waves that are perfect for kids.

We enjoyed the stay and condo was comfortable. The TV cable internet connection was very unstable with the message “try again later!”

Love the access to the beautiful views with the water splashing up over the rocks. The closeness to the pool and access to the rest of the island was great.

Right on the water between two of the most popular beaches on the island. Completely stocked and well cared for. Excellent communication and service. Recommended.

Wonderful condo! Lovely, comfortable bed and furnishings. Large, well stocked kitchen. Just me and my husband on this trip, so lots of space, but 2 bedrooms, so would be perfect for 4. Loved the first floor patio with lawn and ocean view just out the door. Pool access right out the door as well, spectacular sunset views every night!

Our stay was a mixed experience. Poipu is absolutely wonderful. The condo is has a great view, the front office staff is lovely, and there is most everything you would need. Though it lacked some basics like bath mats and extra towels/blankets. They accommodated an early check in request, though I don't think they communicated it to the property manager. After we checked in we were very surprised when an employee let herself into the condo. She was apologetic and it wasn't a big issue, but it was awkward. Additionally, I think housekeeping may have rushed through cleaning. The floors had not been cleaned at all and since they have a no shoes rule, our feet and socks were constantly dirty. We also found that many dishes in the cabinets had caked on food and hadn't been washed. Additionally, during our first evening, around 11pm an alarm went off and continually went off overnight. We called the emergency line provided and left a message, but nobody returned our call. When we called the front office in the morning, they advised us it's not their responsibility, but the condo owner. We hadn't heard back from VRBO and after hearing we had a night of no sleep with a loud alarm and no call back, the front office was nice enough to send their maintenance guy over who was able to turn the alarm off. We also had the hot water go out, which required maintenance in and out of the unit one day. The location and staff is great and the condo is okay, but I wouldn't stay here again.

This was a perfect home base for us! The pool is literally right out the back door, there was plenty of space for 4 people, and it had all basic necessities for a beach vacation. Location to Brennecke’s Beach and Poipu was great (about a 5 or 10 minute walk), and everything else was close by. The condo was clean and worked well for our family. We would recommend this to friends based on the cleanliness and location alone. The only weird parts of our stay: the tiny, thin bath towels provided (and you get literally 4 - one for each person). I reached out to the management co who said we should just wash them if we need more, but after some convincing brought us two extra; I guess better than no extra. Also to note, there were no other extras of anything except a pillow with no case - 0 additional blankets, exactly 4 washcloths, 4 beach towels, 2 hand towels, no bath mats, etc. This is fine, but on vacation mom having to do multiple loads of laundry a day just to have dry towels is kind of annoying. Finally, the ‘master’ bath situation was a little funky (the doors are 2 slatted pocket doors and close over the sink area but there is no other door inside for the toilet/shower area). Needless to say, there’s not a ton of privacy going to the bathroom/showering even with the doors closed. Not a game changer for our family, but I would have appreciated knowing if it was a different companion situation! Overall this is an amazing place and we would definitely stay again!

This is a great location on Poipu Beach, you can't get closer to the ocean and it is a short walk to the beach. Also a convenient location to explore the Island, close to Lahina and all there is to see on the South shore. We loved having a first floor unit where we could have breakfast or sit out on the lawn. Super convenient to the pool. A couple of minor notes, the parking lot was tight for our mid-sized SUV, and you have to descend some stairs to to get to the unit (elevator available).

Poipu Shores sits right up against the ocean, crashing over the rocks just below where you will see sea turtles swimming all day every day. We had whale sightings everyday from our room. 101A is particularly wonderful because it sits on the lawn, just a few steps away from the pool. There is nothing like falling to sleep windows open to the crashing waves just outside. Poipu beach is a very short walk away. The condo provided a wagon for all of our beach gear. It was comfortable and well stocked with kitchen supplies.

This rental unit was a very cozy and nice place to stay. The proximity to the beach and restaurants was convenient and we got to enjoy beautiful sunset every night! We enjoyed our stay in Kauai. Some negatives are when we tried to check in, the code didn’t work which was resolved with a phone call and pretty fast. The floors were dirty and we kept on stepping on debris after taking our shoes off, as was directed from the owners manual. I had to vacuum up the floor. One of the kitchen window slat was broken off and the dishwasher didn’t clean well. The bottom has a big crack in it so it may need to be replaced. Other than that, the place was a nice place.

We enjoyed our stay at Poipu Shores. The location is great and the view is fabulous. There were a few minor things that could use fixing/updating, but overall it is very comfortable and well-furnished.

We had a great experience at this Poipu condo. It was well stocked in the kitchen and plenty of beach chairs and boogie boards to enjoy at the nearby beach! Snorkeling was good and seeing the sea turtles and monk seals at Poipu beach just a short 15 minute walk away added to our Kauai adventures! Air conditioning worked great and was definitely needed as we were visiting from a colder climate so it took a while to acclimate to the warmer temperatures on Kauai even in November. Lots of food options within a 5 minute drive and great beaches to walk to in both directions from this condo made it perfect for our time on vacation. We had no issues with the condo and the communications from the management company were timely and informative without being annoying or bothersome. We had a great experience all around and this condo was part of our great time on the island.

The location of this property is amazing! Has its own pool built into the lava rock on the ocean overlooking the turtle ‘playground’. Easy walk out your back slider to the beach and shops. Favorite place!

101 was the perfect spot in a lovely place. With the sound of the surf crashing just beyond our windows and the pool just a few steps away, we felt like we got the most out of our stay. The unit was clean and spacious, and included beach towels and chairs so we didn’t have to buy any for our short stay. We loved it.

This property is everything it promises. Beautiful views, proximity to pool and beach and easy access out of Poipu for island adventures as well. Don’t miss your chance for a real vacation!

We loved the proximity to the Ocean and breaking surf. We saw an abundance of Ocean life here, turtles, rays and spinner dolphins. The grounds are lovely and the grounds beach path was very convenient. Master bed extremely comfortable, two twins are small, better suited for young children The patio furniture could be updated.

Everything about this stay was perfect! Condo was clean and comfortable, perfect! Setting was beautiful, surf pounding on the rocks, turtles swimming, dolphins jumping, whales spouting, seals sunning themselves, perfect! Sunset from the lanai, perfect! Walking distance to beach was shorter than anticipated..... perfect! Really, everything was absolutely stunning and we can't wait to go back!!!

This place is in an incredible location. Right on a cliff with the Pacific Ocean below. You can listen to the sound of the surf 24x7. Plus plenty of space for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teens). Kitchen and baths are nicely renovated. Beds are comfortable. Easy walking distance to multiply beaches, the Grand Hyatt, etc.

Short walk to a great beach right from unit 101A lanai. Walk out to very nice lawn with sunset views. Great pool- perfect water temperature and right above the waves. Condo has all the amenities. Great place for a relaxing vacation.
