This property worked great for our group of 8 adults. Four of us have been to the island twice previously and the other four were first timers.
Location: A quick walk to the beach and pools. The grounds are immaculate and we enjoyed a morning and evening walk everyday. Another short walk up Pe'e Rd to Makahuena light for sunsets. Parking was never an issue. Plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance or a quick drive.
Amenities: Having a washer and dryer was great! We ended up packing much lighter for the trip knowing this was available. There were plenty of board games, card games and puzzles. We watched a movie one of our nights, but there was plenty of options if you have people or kids in your group that would watch tv more often. We used the kitchen mainly for breakfast. I would check the cabinets to see what has been left behind as far as spices before shopping. We ended up buying a couple of things that we didn't need to. Using a door code instead of having keys was another great thing for our group. It made it super easy to come and go as we needed to without worrying who did or didn't have a key to the condo. Plenty of baby/toddler items available too.
Bedrooms: The only thing that would be a possible negative for some is the upstairs bedroom. One of the bedrooms is in a loft space. If you are a light sleeper this probably isn't the best room option for you. If you have early risers that like to make breakfast or tend to be noisy, you will hear it in this room. The beds were all very comfortable and the linens were crisp and clean. The walk in shower in the main bedroom was great for my in-laws.
Communication: Jennifer was awesome! The couple of times I contacted her she got right back to me.
Overall we had an amazing trip and I would happily rent a condo from Jennifer in the future.
Really great rental for families. Pools were well-situated and generally not too busy. Condo kitchen was stocked with most necessary implements. Washer and dryer in unit was incredibly handy with small children. Downsdie: the condo faces on to busy Poipu Road and traffic noises (while the patio door was opena nd AC off, could be really loud.
The blue crab gets five stars from my family. Jay our host was fast with response with questions and friendly. Well laid out condo, clean and comfortable beds.we will book this one again if available.
Super grateful to Jennifer for her amazing responsiveness and support. The location is so beautiful overlooking the mountains. Unit is quiet and comfortable for a large group.
Great place for an affordable price. Only a couple minutes from the beach. Well equipped condo with lots of space
Property was great! Entire house was clean, bunk room was great for the kids. Screened porch and backyard are really great. Host was quick to respond for any questions. Tons of beach gear available. Would rent again and recommend to others.
A great property!! -- but there's no way we could have "walked to the beach" as was advertised. Accommodation was lovely!!
Hoping to come back
Condo was great and well stocked with the basics. Walk to the beach was about half a mile away and the cart came in handy going down. Eight of us stayed to attend a friends wedding and this was a great spot for all of us. Only thing is the fourth bedroom isn’t really a bedroom, it was more of a loft since it didn’t have its own door.
Would stay again
We had a great stay at this property. Location is fantastic. Short walk to Poipu beach and surrounding beaches. In the early AM you get a great view of the sunrise from the balcony. It is a corner unit which faces an intersection so you may get some noise. However sitting on the balcony in the evenings was amazing as we got nice breeze.
The unit is stacked to the T. It has ample towels (bath) and beach towels+beach toys+chairs+buggy for beach. Washer dryer with detergent in unit. Everything you would need in a kitchen including blender, toaster, fridge with ice maker etc.
Unit has 1 car park but ample guest parking. You need to display parking in car (pass in unit). Unit is on second floor (1 flight of stairs) and within unit is another flight of stairs to get to 2 bedrooms.
Bedroom 1 master - is on level one of unit. In the back - has a large bath and a small balcony - we gave this to the grandparetns (80, 75). Amazing beds and pillows. And nicely furnished.
Bedroom 2 - also on Level 1 - has a detached bath across the door. Ample closet. Again very comfortable bed and pillow.
Next to this bedroom is washer / dryer and next to that is large expansive kitchen. There are some basic condiments.
Next to the kitchen is large 8-10 seating solid wood dining table. Living room has comfortable couch and two spinning comfortable chairs. Some books and TV. Thermostat is behind large lamp above couch (controls entire house).
Flight of stairs leads to upper level.
Bedroom 3 - is a loft bedroom - no closed door to stairway. Big bed, comfortable - has a window to outside and other windows that open up to dining below. Kids in this room if loud will send noise down.
Bedroom 4 - shares bath with Bedroom 3. Smaller bath but well stacked. This is the most inside / quite bedroom of the lot. No windows but good privacy.
All BR"s have fans. We did not have to use central air all the time.
Overall great location easy car access to highways, walking access to beaches.
Poipu beach early AM has turtles resting and we also saw monk seals.
We caught multiple rainbows at this beach.
A short walk in main road leads to Little Fish Coffee - opens around 7am has good eats and coffee.
Shared pool, bbq grill, hot tub. Unit provides keys to pool area (you need for entry and exit). there are two different pools not very big but good enough for kids.
Minor Concerns - TV remote in living was iffy. Net door would come out sometimes
Great for families. Very spacious , well stocked . Very comfortable. Owners were awesome to work with.
Nice and roomy condo that is convenient to almost everything in Poipu! A short 5 min walk down to the beach or you can drive. Jennifer is a great host! Very responsive and helpful!
Wonderful time with family. Excellent location. Very much appreciate air mattresses for two youngest children.
This was our third time staying at this complex and it was as lovely as ever! The condo is lovely and Jennifer is very responsive. We would definitely book again!
From the smooth check in to checkout, our group comprised of 3 couples truly enjoyed our stay at this property! We loved that this condo is close to the beach. We all enjoyed the pools and hot-tubs just about every evening. We also really enjoyed exploring the island, so we highly recommend renting a car and doing this. Also, special thanks to Jennifer for going above and beyond when she shipped a couple of special items that had been left behind. Excellent customer service!
Had a fantastic stay close to amazing Poipu Beach! Thanks for a great stay and such quick responses!
Great time. Thanks for a nice place and for being so easy to work with
Great access to beaches and plenty of space for our group!
Great location near the beach, shops. Love the condo
Short walk to the beach, spacious, very comfortable beds and pillows. Worked out perfectly for us (6 adults).
We had a great time. This was a great space for two families. The upstairs layout is a little funky (the only entrance to one of the bedrooms is through another bedroom and a bathroom). Jennifer was helpful and communicative. Beach chairs and wagon were helpful.
The condo was exactly as described. The beds were very comfortable and the condo had everything we needed to enjoy our family trip. We had a wonderful time on the island and Jennifer provided great trip recommendations.
We had a great stay here. The property was very clean and tidy and Jennifer provided everything we needed for the kitchen. Nice sized lanai off of the living area and one off of the master bedroom. The condo is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors. There are 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms on the main floor (including the beautiful master); the upstairs is better suited for siblings and/or children. The first room (upstairs) is more like a loft area, then you walk through the 3rd bathroom (great size with large tub/shower, separate sink area) to the 4th bedroom which has a door for privacy. Might be a little awkward if you were planning on putting 2 couples upstairs. Overall, we had a great stay and it’s a perfect location nears shopping and restaurants.
Our Family of nine thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well stocked condo. Comfortable beds are mandatory for vacation enjoyment being able to get a good nights rest for the next day adventures, and we were not disappointed. The organic products saved us from packing personal items and the Turkish beach towels were a bonus. We grilled pool side a few nights and enjoyed the spa in the evening. What I love the most about the pool experience at this complex is there is no getting up at dawn to save a lounge! Traveling with a family or group of friends gets no better over hotel stays. An added bonus were beach chairs, sand toys, cooler, umbrella and boogie board. A big savings over having to rent. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for a group and seating is ample. This is a perfect location to use as a home base as you explore this beautiful island and all it has to offer.
