We loved our stay here! It was the perfect place for our family of five adults to come back to every day and relax and enjoy the view, which is fantastic, either sitting inside or outside or while fixing a meal. Between us, we probably took 50 photos of the sunsets. The condo itself is first class with lovely artwork and coral pieces around. The Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail, a short distance away, is a nice place to watch sunrises, and it is also possible to walk to several beaches. Highly recommend!

This is a lovely property and the view is spectacular. Loads of turtles to see from the balcony and the occasional dolphin!

We saw sea turtles swimming by all day long, one sea lion, and distant whale spouts off our lanai…it was amazing. The condo accommodated 5 adults and two children easily and was a 15 minute walk to Poipu Beach. I would definitely recommend this getaway to families.

Beautiful sunrise and sunset views every day usually accompanied by a rainbow. We could watch the sea turtles in the surf from our balcony. No beach access on site - a short walk down the road. Definitely a different vibe here in Poipu compared to our stay in Hanalei. We didn’t use the pool (it’s small), but walked to Brennekes and Poipu beach parks to snorkel and see the turtles and monk seals on the beach. Poipu beach park has the one calm “kiddie pool” area if you aren’t into the waves. Apartment is well stocked and you will not be wakened by roosters here! From here we visited Waimea canyon and did a snorkel boat tour of the NāPali coast which was amazing. Pods of spinner dolphins followed our catamaran almost like they were performing for us! We would definitely stay here again.

Amazing views of ocean, crashing waves, turtles, whales and even dolphins our last day. Very close to everything in the Poipu/Koloa area.

This was a great rental. Lots of space, and excellent views, and great management. This rental was worth all the money. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. There was room enough for 8 people, we had 4 adults and 4 kids. There were beach items, and lots of towels, and plenty of dishes to prepare many different food items. Our favorite part was watching the turtles and the whales and hearing the waves crashing on the rocks below the lanai. The pool is on the small side, but was perfect for our younger kids. We used the grill multiple times during our stay, and all the workers/staff/neighbors were friendly and kind. We had a few appliance issues during the stay, but they got them fixed as soon as they reasonably could. The beaches are a short walk away and the all of us had so much fun snorkeling and swimming. We greatly appreciated our time spent at this condo! Thanks to the owners and management for our wonderful time spent in Kauai!

There are really no words for the view at this property. Everyday we were so grateful to witness the beautiful ocean and sea life. From our lanai each morning we watched sea turtles and dolphins. The evening sunsets were amazing. We have stayed on Kauai many times and this location was absolutely stunning. We enjoyed nice walks to POIPU Beach and our favorite Puka Dog. Lots to do nearby, shopping, beach, snorkel rentals etc. We had a fantastic time and very thankful for the wonderful accommodations!

The view and location is the reason this is our second time renting in this building. None better in Poipu. This west-facing, third floor unit boasts a perfect layout for a larger group and each evening, the sun dips into the ocean right before your eyes. Below you, sea turtles frolic in the rocks and foam, and further out, pods of dolphins pass by and if you’re lucky, you can see whales spouting and breaching. One day, we saw 7 breaches in a row! The beds and bedding were extremely comfortable. Beaches are an easy 10 walk away. That said, the unit is tired. A good deep cleaning and upgrading of some of the appliances and other amenities would go a long way to creating the ultimate vacation rental.

It was an amazing time! The only suggestion is - include the fact there are several flights of stairs. We were traveling with two older family members and the stairs were very taxing on them. It was a challenge to carry all luggage up the stairs. The property was very lovely, we will certainly return to vacation there.

If you like the sounds and sights of waves crashing on the lava rocks, this is the place for you. Incredible sunsets too! 3 Bedroom and Loft

We loved hearing the ocean and being right on the ocean. Our views were beautiful. The location is great. You can walk to the beach.

We loved this property - from the amazing sunsets to waking up and seeing the turtles swimming just below our balcony. It was magical.

It’s condo is absolutely gorgeous, however the fact that there is air conditioning but not operable totally put a damper on our vacation! Upon booking I was told that if you keep the windows open and the ceiling fans on the air conditioning was not necessary. This is not true! First of all the ceiling fans did not work and if you kept the windows open tiny gnats come through the screen and cover everything in the condo! Kind of a disgusting thing to wake up to! It was so hot during the day we had to actually leave the condo to get relief from the heat! If you are headed here in the off-season I’m sure it will be fine but the summertime was a killer! With that being said, I would like to add the condo was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, except air conditioning! I would’ve gladly paid extra to have been able to use the air conditioning that is installed in the unit.

Our family really enjoyed this Condo on Poipu. It was close to everything we needed and far away from stress and busyness of being at work and school. There were comfy beds for everyone and 3 bathrooms for all 8 of us (5 girls) to shower and get ready. We made many meals and snacks in the kitchen and enjoyed dining on the lanai. We also grilled by the small pool one night. The views and sounds of the ocean were amazing and we planned to be back most nights to catch the sunsets.

The views from the condo are what you are paying for and they do not disappoint. So many turtles every day right outside your window and gnarly waves crashing against the rocks. The pool is not great - there are other options right next to this condo complex with pools right on the ocean that were bigger and nicer. So if you're looking to use a pool, this is not the condo for you. We arrived late at night and there are no signs and very little lighting so finding the unit was difficult. The bottom level parking garage is also extremely tight - so if you have a large SUV I would recommend parking on the top level. The no AC was rough at night - definitely did not sleep great, but waking up to the amazing views made up for it. In regards to location, there is a great path near this complex that goes along the ocean and takes you to the Grand Hyatt Resort / Shipwreck beach, so we really enjoyed the location. In the other direction it was like a 10 minute walk to Poipu beach so you're right in the middle of some great beaches. Here's a tip: Google the host name for other pricing :)

This condo is so amazing!! The views are everything. You’ll enjoy turtles every morning, beautiful sunrises and sunsets and the sound of waves crashing all day long. Plenty of sleeping space, beds are comfy and the living space is the perfect size for a large family to hangout. Kitchen is well stocked too! I was very impressed with the communication with the management company. They even sent me a list of the best beaches and activities on the island. We can’t wait to stay here again. Book this condo ASAP, you won’t be disappointed!

It was a bit difficult to locate, parking extremely limited, the access to the parking garage proved very difficult. However, we greatly enjoyed the wonderful view. We were fortunate to observe a great many whales and of course, turtles, even dolphins. It was a wonderful vacation for us!

The condominium was very comfortable. We were only 4 people and could have easily accomodated 2-3 more. We ate most of our meals there and the kitchen had all the equipment we needed. Two minor suggestions: The only supplies in the kitchen were salt and pepper. It would have been nice to have a few basics (sugar, oil, mustard). I know food cant be left out, but in other VRBO's they have been put in the refrigerator. Also, the only dining table is on the outdoor porch, which is delightful. However, the lighting on the porch is very very minimal which makes it a hard to see in the evenings. A better light, or at least candles, would have nice. Otherwise, everything went very well and all communications were perfect. Thank you.

You could not beat the ocean views! The place was clean and had everything we needed to stay. Communication with management was great and made everything go smoothly! Highly recommended!

Our stay was perfect. The pictures do not do justice! We spent most of our time in the lanai as it overlooks the beautiful water! We watched turtles and even saw dolphins the first day. The rooms were big with plenty of storage for a long stay. The kitchen was plenty big enough to make breakfast and dinners. Would definitely stay here again!

Absolutely loved the stay at this beautiful home! The view from the lanai was our favorite part( sea turtles, dolphins, and crashing waves )…we ate outside every chance we got. Jessica was quick to respond to every question and the home was exactly as pictured on the site. Kitchen was well stocked . Perfect set up for our family of 6. Next time we come to Kauai…we hope to return to this home!

Definitely has a perfect view of the beach, in walking distance of a lot. Perfect for our family of 8! Fully equipped with dishes. Did get a little warm during the day but weren’t in the hime long enough to complain. The nights were perfect!

We had an amazing week and wish to have had at least another. The photos are very representative and the location is very convenient. We positively loved every minute of our stay!
