We stayed with our 10 year old grandson. The property was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. The parking space was a bonus. We enjoyed the 3-4 minute walk to the beach. Our grandson took advantage of the boogie boards on the property. Provided beach towels were appreciated. Will definitely return!

This property is a beautiful beach house right on the shores of Poipu beach. It is very clean and beautifully decorated, It is well stocked with everything that you will need in the kitchen and on the beach. Every morning we had our coffee on the lanai, watching whales, surfers and spinner dolphins right. Every evening we enjoyed the beautiful sunsets right off of our upper lanai. Beautiful views from every room and a small pool that our family enjoyed after a long hot day on the island. AC works well and was very appreciated. Very responsive staff and thank you Kristen for the extra supplies and for providing us same-day replacement of the coffee machine that stopped working one morning-on New Year's Day no less! This is a beautiful property that you will never want to leave. We hope to be back one day soon. Mahalo=XO

This property was wonderful, so close to Poipu and Brennecke beaches. The view from the upstairs and downstairs was so beautiful, including sunsets. The property was well maintained will many extras that just made for the perfect property. Including back chairs, snorkeling gear, umbrellas and ice chest! The property management team was wonderful always providing fast and detailed information. We will definitely come back on our next poipu adventure

This is a great townhouse with beautiful views of the ocean. It is a stones throw from a spectacular boogie boarding beach and just a short walk to family friendly poipu beach. The rental was clean and well stocked. Parking is right by the door. Pool is clean and better than pictures although it is small. Great restaurants nearby. Hosts are helpful and gracious. You can see turtles from the balcony. This is an amazing g place to stay🌺

We had a great time! A family of 5 (3 teenagers). This place is walkable to the beaches and some food/shopping! It is a few minutes drive to lots of other food and shopping areas. You can sit out on the patio with privacy from the public and enjoy your coffee or read a book while enjoying the ocean view! Great sunsets! Lots of toys offered - snorkel gear, boogie boards, as well as some board games and books. Washer a dryer was great and the fully equipped kitchen made breakfast easy every morning. We did our main grocery shopping at the Walmart close to the airport. The only negative was that there was a daybed in the master bedroom and a futon in the room with the twin beds. We ended moving the futon downstairs for my son to use. Otherwise, great space for us.

Our stay was perfect. The home was impeccably clean, we had everything we needed, the beds were comfy, communication was prompt and friendly...really, just perfect. Brennecke's is visible from the lanai and Shipwrecks a short walk away. We can't wait to be back.

I came here with my husband and two college age sons. We loved it. The place was very spacious with a large kitchen and den as well as a large master bathroom and bath and a large second bedroom with two twin beds and an even bigger second bathroom. The house was across a small street from the ocean and had unobstructed views of it. There was a patio with super comfy chairs where I read in the mornings while listening to the ocean. The towels provided were soft. The was a full size washer and dryer (a necessity) on the first floor with laundry detergent and dryer sheets provided. Kitchen dishes, cutlery, larger utensils, pots, pans, bowls, cutting board and cutting knives were all provided. We were able to prepare full meals easily. The cutting knives were sharp - I had no trouble cutting up pineapples. The beach was about 100 yards from the house and easy to walk to. The town house was in a beautiful neighborhood with upscale homes and minutes away from shopping dining and entertainment. Beach towels were provided which was a huge plus for us.

Very comfortable villa with large open kitchen and living area on main level. Two comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs. Walk across the street to the beach for sunset. Location can’t be beat. Pool area is nice and private as well. Perfect for two couples or a family.

Just as advertised and sunsets out side back windows are first class. Slept with windows open listening to the ocean all night

This place is fantastic. We were in Kaua'i for a wedding and needed a place near Poipu Beach Park. We had our toddler with us and it was perfect for her - nice and safe, lots of things to explore, and the pool was great for her as well. Easy parking for our rental car and we were able to walk to Poipu beach. My dad joined us from O'ahu and he had a great time as well. We loved the big kitchen with the bar seating! The folks at Destination Kaua'i are super friendly and communicated quickly with us when we had questions. We would recommend this place for anyone with a family.

Excellent location! Condo had everything we needed. The property was nice Ann clean. The cushions on the patio chairs need to be replaced but not a big deal. We had an issue with the screen door which we communicated to property manager they had it fixed right away. Would highly recommend this condo we would rent again.

Hanu Kai Villas was a great location for our Kauai vacation. It was so nice to see the ocean from the bedroom and living room and hear the waves at night. The condo has everything you need for your beach vacation including chairs, umbrellas, a beach cart, etc. and we were very impressed with the amenities. It’s an easy walk to the beach and drive to all the local restaurants and shops. Highly recommend and would stay here again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Honu Kai Villas! The villa was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was fully stocked. We appreciated having access to snorkels/fins/boogie board as well. The views of the ocean from the main level and master suite were gorgeous and quick walk to the beach/park was awesome! We highly recommend this villa - it is a slice of paradise!!

We loved this location. Walked to the beach every day. The villa was well stocked and had everything we needed. It has an almost direct south facing view which meant we had perfect sunsets in December. Would book again.

Pictures do not do the location justice. The place is steps away from the ocean. We left the master bedroom window open at night & were serenaded to sleep by the crashing wave sounds. Though not inexpensive, this townhouse is one of the best places we’ve ever stayed! Located in a quiet high-end neighborhood. We loved seeing folks walking early in the morning & through the day from house. My wife searched property prices & to our shock found that, like property’s sold for over two million! Great location, would highly recommend. No issues with anything in the house, hotel like experience! Only regret, is not staying long enough!

This is the perfect place to get away to Kauai and stay right near the beaches of Poipu. This condo in super new, clean and very well laid out and it’s in a perfect location. All the amenities were nice and in great working order including lots of extras needed for beach fun. Pool/hot tub was an added extra we enjoyed after long days at the beach. Management was very well connected and helpful and check in/out was a breeze. We would certainly stay here again and encourage anyone who wants a great, relaxing beach vacation to book this place.


Jacquelyn H.
November 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was very comfortable and we couldn’t get enough of the views - we would frequently spot turtles from the lanai and stargaze at night. The space was perfect for our family of three with a 2 year old and we could definitely grow into the space with another child. The pool is only so-so. In the end, this wasn’t a big deal for us because poipu beach (which is perfect for kids) was only a very short walk away and we spent most of our time there. Overall, we loved this place and hope to return!

Really great location across the street from the ocean with views up the coast. Walking distance to a great beach where turtles bask among the swimmers and snorkelers. Everything you need for a great stay.

We had a lovely stay at Honu Kai villas. The views from the condo are amazing and you're literally steps away from Brennacke and Poipu beaches. The location was so convenient. Every night we were able to watch the sun set right from the back patio and every day we merely crossed the street to watch the turtles surf the waves. The condo was the perfect size for our family of four and was very well equipped - they even have beach chairs and a cooler for trips to the beach. The pool was a lovely little enclave for our kids who had it all to themselves during our stay. We would definitely stay again.

This place was a dream. Perfect location, an easy stroll from so many great beaches. Great setup for our family of 5 with all the amenities we could ask for. Pool was great for kids and shaded in the afternoon. So many beach toys and snorkels and chairs and balls. Easy check in and check out. And of course falling asleep to crashing waves every night was perfection. Can’t wait to get back to this place!

Arriving to the Villa we already felt the warm Aloha welcome, opening the front door only to be greeted by the site of and ocean view was so refreshing. A beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers picked from the garden awaited us. Everything was clean, bright and airy, a relaxing lounge bed on the patio for anytime naps when you got back from the 20 steps to the beach walk. The bedrooms upstairs were comfortable and had fantastic views with a little balcony in the Master bedroom overlooking the ocean, each day we we treated to sunrises, rainbows, sunsets, and a bright moon casting shadows on the water at night. When we laid our heads down at night the beds very comfortable. I have to say never have I ever been treated to such fresh yummy body wash ever, so much so our son ordered the very same one for our home. This was truly a wonderful place to stay and we would recommend it to all our friends. Malho

What a fabulous property with breathtaking view of ocean! Also extremely convenient to beach and even food within walking distance. There is a restaurant snack bar and beach about 5 minute walk from property. The beach also is a great site for turtles and fabulous view of sunset. I enjoyed going to sleep and waking up to the ocean waves. Need to be careful as the ocean swells were very high one night that it washed into the road causing debris. But that happens when you live close to the shore. The property was excellent with modern appliances including washer/dryer. Very roomy and Poipu location was great central location for Waimea canyon and Lihue activities.

We absolutely loved our stay! We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. This house was very comfortable for us. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bedrooms were a great size and we loved the ceilings upstairs. The best part was the back porch! We saw amazing sunsets over the water every night from there. I would come back and stay in this same house.

This place is a gem. We greatly appreciated the professionalism and quick communication regarding our booking, the beauty of the place, gorgeous furnishings and excellent, plentiful supplies. Most everything you need, is there, which makes for a really pleasant stay! The ocean is right in front we adored the views. The pool is fantastic as well as the hot tub and we had it pretty much to ourselves, since it is only shared with a few other villas. We loved the light, the layout, the aesthetic and care with which this place was set up. The patio is a great place to be as well as the upper balcony with great views of the rushing waves. It feels as though this place was recently renovated and also well maintained. The bed was great to sleep on! The beaches were right there and it was a beautiful walk to Poipu beach (7 mins for us). Very grateful to have stayed here!

We stayed at this condo for a little over a week. It was wonderful. Our group included me and my husband, mother-in-law, and two kids. The space worked great for our family. (MIL didn’t mind sleeping in the room with kiddos.) the view is amazing and there is access to great beaches within short walking distance — beaches included protected area for young ones and snorkeling. The condo (which felt like a house) had everything we needed for beach excursions—chairs, toys, snorkel gear, water shoes and fins of various sizes, beach umbrella, etc.. We brought nothing with us and had everything we needed for beach days with kids. The owners are incredibly responsive, even showing up with a beach cooler within a couple of hours when we couldn’t find the one we thought would be at the house. The house is well decorated and comfortable. You can watch the waves from the living room lania and the sea turtles floating in the cove out front from the bedroom lanai. Truly exceptional!

Excellent view, location, and house. Will be back!



April 2022
This place was perfect. Awesome location, great views, and nice and quiet. The ever present roosters don't seem to be near this house, which was a major bonus. The house itself was exactly what we needed and the owners/management were super helpful. I highly recommend this place.

Our little “staycation” was absolutely perfect on Kauai in part because of this rental. Absolutely perfect in every way. From location to communication to cleanliness. Will definitely stay here again

We stayed here with our 3 and 6 year olds on our first big family vacation, so it was a learning experience in what works with young kids. The rental itself is really wonderful - spacious, modern, well equipped, loved having a separate primary suite with ocean views, great location within Poipu. The pool was the only downfall for us since it was chilly, small, walled in between units, not really a place you'd like to hang out for long, especially with small kids and lack of shallow play space. Walkable Poipu Beach is definitely the best beach in the south we thought - protected shallow swimming and snorkeling, daily sea turtles and seals, a cafe for lunch and adult drinks to go, and a playground. However, hauling all our beach gear with kids was impossible, so we either drove or couldn't bring chairs and other comforts. I definitely think a wagon is needed and advised the agency of this. All in all, it's a great option for the south part of the island, especially if you don't have little kids. For young families, something with more outdoor space right off the unit (condos at the nearby Poipu Kai resort seemed to offer this) and more kid friendly pools might be preferable. Next visit we want to spend more time on the more wild and low key North Shore, but I can see the appeal of the sunnier South Shore for retirees with visiting families and easier access to the beaches, hotels, and west coast activities. The agency was very communicative and overall this was a great experience if the pool and beach hauling challenges are not a concern for you.

We loved staying in this home. We saw sea turtles all over the place, from the cove right across the street to snorkeling that was a 10 minute drive away. It was a great home base with comfortable accommodations.

We loved our time at the Villa! It is better than the photos and just beautiful. The beaches are just a few minutes’ walk and bring oceanfront and hearing the waves at night was wonderful. We had our three young kids with us and the layout of the unit was perfect for our family, they loved the pool and all the beach toys/chair boogie board were a big plus! We would definitely stay here again.

We looked at dozens of vacation rentals on Kauai on VRBO and AirB&B and chose this property based on its location and description and we absolutely think we made the best choice possible. The location is absolutely ideal! It is literally across the street from the ocean and has a spectacular view from the lanai, including a view of the sunset. It is a 3 minute walk to Brennecke Beach (excellent for surfers, small beach, pretty rough/wild surf) and a 7 minute walk to the wonderful Poipu Beach (superb for snorkeling, and also an area good for children or people who are not strong swimmers). There are excellent restaurants nearby, especially the Beach House. We also enjoyed Keoki's Paradise, in the Poipu Village Shopping Center (touristy, but fun atmosphere and very good food). Also recommend Living Foods at the Shops at Kukui'ula. The 2 bedroom villa is everything we hoped for. A master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and balcony with a view of the beach and a large and comfortable 2nd bedroom with full bath in the hall on the 2nd floor. The beds were comfortable, the towels thick and soft. The kitchen is well stocked with good pans for cooking and plenty of dishes and silverware. The living room area is cozy with comfortable seating. And the lanai and garden has a small table with 2 chairs and a very comfortable outdoor sofa for watching the sunset. There is a weber gas grill. There are several lightweight beach chairs, an excellent beach umbrella and a few beach accessories. The host's description is very accurate. I cannot emphasize enough what an excellent location this is - if you are interested in staying on the south shore - and an ideal property for a small group (I was with my husband and mother-in-law).

This extremely well-appointed condo couldn't have been in a better location -- a three-minute walk from Brennecke Beach and a seven-minute walk from Poipu Beach, yet sufficiently far from the crowds that noise was virtually non-existsent -- and well within a five-minute drive to shops and markets. We (my wife and I, plus two close friends) spent a wonderful eight days here as a perfect jumping off spot for island activities (scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking the Waimea Canyon and Kalalau [Napali coast] trails, visiting the nearby botanical gardens, etc.), as well as daily happy hours on the patio overlooking the waves crashing on the ancient lava as the sun went down. Very highly recommended as the perfect getaway spot, and checking in and out could not have been easier.

If you want a relaxing trip far away from the crowds yet steps away from Poipu and Brennecke’s Beach, then this is the place to stay.

This condo was amazing. A GREAT location. Wonderful views and you could walk to several beaches. The closest beach is full of young kids and boogie boards, and if you go a little further there are several beaches that are less crowded and calmer. Turtles right outside the condo in the breakwater all day long and plenty of sea life coming to shore in the early evenings. The condo was very comfortable. Plenty of space for our family. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessary utensils. Refrig is a little small, but was not really an issue. We used the A/C a fair amount, it was quite warm when we were there, and it worked great and cooled the condo down. The pool and hot tub were very nice as well. If you book you will not be disappointed.

Cleanliness was absent. Cleaning crew was there when we arrived and didn’t leave until 4pm (check in is 3pm). I don’t know what they actually cleaned. Location is great, view of the ocean is lovely and the sunsets are gorgeous.

Great location walkable to Po’ipu Beach. Close to the airport (<25 minutes). Midway to any other island destinations you may want to venture to. Didn’t have to deal with the landslide that impacted Princeville. Be sure to do the Po’ipu Beach Hike - amazing hike right beside the condo. Really glad we picked this location on the island.

Great location! Perfect size for our family of 5. It had everything we needed plus more! Outdoor seating, listening to the ocean was our favorite.

Great spot. Spacious and Ocean views from everywhere. Place is a 5/5 all the way around. We'll counting the days until we come back.
