Room very comfy, close to pools. Would stay again.
James R.

This condo is in a great location. The grounds are gorgeous and the facilities outside were well maintained. The beds were very comfortable. However, there were many things that needed to be replaced and or repaired. The dishwasher and the oven did not work at all. The ceiling fans in the master bedroom and the living room did not work properly (squeeking) and missing a pull cord. The lamp in the master bedroom was dusty and broken…no on off switch & nothing to hold the shade in place. There were 2 broken patio chairs which they did replace. The office chair is cracked but functional. We appreciated Angela’s quick responses and communications. We also liked having the beach chairs available to us. I’d stay here again if everything worked. We appreciate the late check out.

We loved this unit, especially how comfortable it was with the furnishings and silent minisplit ACs. The location is excellent - walking distance to Brennecke beach and restaurant and poipu beach. We’d love to stay again. The pool was very cold but the overall Poipu Kai “kidney” pool was more manageable. We loved being able to go to Poipu Beach Athletic club (included with the unit). Note that the pool there was a bit chilly as well. Washer and dryer in the unit were excellent. The Tommy Bahama chairs were great but their cooler pocket zippers were broken and the wagon was a bit worn and we didn’t think we could take that to the beach and back in one piece. The one improvement I’d love to see (before we hopefully book the same unit again!) would be a better set of outdoor chairs so our family could have eaten together on the lanai.

This condo's location was perfect. Easy access to walking paths/many beaches. Restaurants/groceries were a short drive away. The pool and hot tub was just down a short path. The designated parking stall was very close to the condo's entrance. The condo itself was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The layout worked very well for 2 couples. The owner's response time was very prompt and courteous. We would definitely stay here again in the future. Michelle

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay at Regency 721. The resort area was very peaceful and our condo was very clean and well-maintained. It came with a lot of kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and beach necessities. The rental property manager and owner were very responsive and communicative. My teenage sons loved the Poipu Beach Athletic Club too. We enjoyed walking to the beach in the morning to check out the turtles resting, watch dolphins and whales and then return to the beach in the afternoon to enjoy sun and best boogie boarding. The restaurants were also very close and we enjoyed Puka Dogs, Brennecke's Beach restaurant and Cabana Bar. I would recommend others rent this property and experience!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Perfect for two couples (2 BR, 2 BA). Ideal location with all required amenities (W/D, AC, WiFi, parking, etc). Very nice layout and design - as noted in the photos. Able to walk to the nearby beach and the pool is within 25 yards of the unit. First floor unit, so some noise from a younger child above, but not outside the quiet hours. Overall, would recommend.

From the booking to our checkout Jeremy & Kristen made it a pleasant experience. Great experience at one of our favorite areas in Poipu. The home was so clean & nicely decorated. Many of the little extra items(ie nightlights, rubber mats, boogie boards, beach chairs & towels) made our family vacation so enjoyable!!

The best units we have rented since coming to Hawaii. Had everything you needed and then some. Highly recommend this rental
Craig P.
March 2024

The place is perfect. Centrally located for beaches days and adventures throughout the island. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is amazingly well stocked, pools are close by, and all the beach gear, coolers, and other accessories available during the stay made our trip a dream come true. Couldn't have asked for any more. Quite possibly the best VRBO we've ever stayed at!

March 2024

Our condo was lovely and met our needs well and was well-priced. We had very good communications with the VRBO manager. The condo's interior was in great condition and was perfect for the four of us. The full-service kitchen was a real plus. We rather liked the shoes-off-at-the-door policy. A great feature was the reserved parking space for our rental car. The resort's pools and hot tubs and bbq grills were very nice. Excellent on-foot access to Poipu Beach and Brennecke's Beach. We much recommend the condo we had. Given its proximity to the beaches, the condo is suitable for families of all ages.

Location was wonderful. The property manager was incredibly easy to work with. We had a wonderful time.

Location is fantastic. I short walk to the beach where you can choose between two areas. One for swimming, boogie boarding waves and one for snorkeling and observing the turtles that sleep on the beach! If you don’t have a good time, that’s on you. 😀 Joel was very responsive and supportive. I highly recommend.

It was the perfect size for our group of 12. Each family had their own rooms so if they needed some quiet time, they could. All the beach amenities were awesome to have. With 4 families cooking, there were plenty of dishes and pots and pans. It was a nice walk to the beach and there was plenty of parking for our vehicles. We were so pleased with the accomodations. Thank you!

We would stay here again. The condo is exactly like it looks in the photos. Great location - easy access to multiple beaches and pools. The most stocked kitchen I have seen in a VRBO. The layout worked well for our family of 5. Great communication from the host. Thanks.

Our family really enjoyed our stay. Plenty of everything we would need: beach toys, beach gear, beds, cooking gead, and space :-). This location is very walkable to multiple beaches via a walking path. Very easy place to let kids get their wiggles out.

Well-maintained 2nd floor condo with dual balconies. Convenient location for day trips to both sides of the island. Walking distance to multiple beaches (Poipu, Brennecke, Shipwreck). Enough space for our family of 10. Well-appointed with air conditioning, washer, dryer, dishwasher, sizable dining table and sectional, comfortable beds and pillows, even a high chair and pack ‘n play for young children. Well-stocked with thick bath towels, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and detergent. The balcony closet provides a wagon, beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, floaties, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and sports gear. Seamless check-in and check-out processes. The host Jennifer is highly responsive, helpful, and accommodating. The street noise and small hot water heater posed only minor inconveniences. We enjoyed staying here and would love to come back and stay here again.

We had an amazing vacation at the house. It was very well equipped and location was perfect. Would love to come back here.
Tania T.

Loved this location. So much room to spread out. Kitchen well stocked, beds comfortable--even the sleeper sofa. Beach accessories were a life-saver. Fun to. be right by the pool. We used the grills at the pool a few times. Even played tennis at the courts that are included in the complex. We had everything we needed!
Darice A.
February 2024

The unit was large and well appointed. Nice to have large capacity, modern laundry machines. Access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club was great - easy running/walking distance away. The owner was friendly and responsive for any questions we had. I’d definitely rent this unit again if returning to Poipu.

Rating Details: The property manager was somewhat unhelpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The unit was very dirty and we did not get any help from ReMax property management to rectify this. So, we had to wash the body Oder smelling sheets, scrub tubs, etc. This was totally unacceptable. Additionally, almost every appliance broke. We had to go to a laundromat to do laundry and hand wash all of our dishes since the washer and dishwasher were each broken for over a week of our stay. Do not book this unit as all of the appliances are old and the property managers do not respond with corrective actions promptly nor give more than 0.24% refund in response to our many attempt to communicate and collaborate politely with them.

The conditions of the property met or exceeded our expectations based upon the listing. The only factor we would consider before renting this again or recommending it would be the fact it is located adjacent to a busy street/intersection. It was quiet at night but noisy otherwise.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Regency 111 was our home base for 12 days. Everything and then some was at hand. Lovely views and beaches were a short walk away. The only small downside is that the pool wasn’t warm enough for some of the “older” guests to enjoy and some other guests were allowing their diapered kids into the hottub. Overall we thorough enjoyed our stay!

Condo was clean and well appointed and a quick ten minute walk to awesome beaches. Pool is a minute away. Would def stay here again. Patty was super responsive.

We found the listing misleading. The listing did not make it clear that this is a guest room off of a residential home. It's more of a neighborhood than a resort. There was only a small latch (not a keyed lock) separating the main house from the bathroom. There was mold in the bathroom and growing on the lampshades. We did not feel comfortable staying here and ended up leaving. In hindsight it should have been a red flag when there wasn't a picture of the outside of the actual bulding in the listing.

I can not say enough about this house! The location is amazing! Short easy walk to Poipu Beach and the Little Fish Coffee house. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils and small appliances. The deck was perfect for early morning coffee or supper. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing off after a day at the beach. The table was plenty big for us to gather around and play games. Vicki was great to communicate with. I would highly recommend this beautiful property!

The condo worked out good and Joel is the best host we’ve had. We had stopped for groceries and it was before the 4:00 check-in time. He said it was fine to drop them off early. The housekeeper was done so we were able to drop everything off and basically start our vacation early. Short walk to beautiful beaches - would stay there again!!

February 2024

The location was great — 15-minute walk to beaches where you could watch the sunrise if you went one direction, watch the sunset in the other direction. Short drive to Kōloa town with shops, restaurants, and minimal groceries (check expiration dates on items!); very near to highways (but not close enough to hear traffic) to the rest of the island. Picky items that they said they will fix after we reported them upon checkout: no spatula in kitchen; no plug in bathtub in en suite bath; a few other trivial items. Note corrections from listing: There are two lanais (porches) but not also a balcony, as this is a ground-floor unit; it's not a one-story building (there are two floors, with a separate unit above this one).

Good location on "green belt" midway between Shipwreck and Brennecke/Poipu Beaches. This unit is a bit dated and could use a furniture upgrade - but A/C is a big plus as many units in Regency do not have A/C. Units without A/C tend to smell musty.

This place was everything we could have asked for in a stay in Kauai - the place itself was more spacious than the pictures let on, they have everything you could ask for on the property for a great beach set-up, and it's totally walkable to Poipu Beach! Poipu is so incredibly baby friendly. We were in such great company with kiddos at the beach, pool, and playground! In case you're thinking about traveling with infants, a few specifics that I was scanning for in reviews for our trip with a 14mo: - The walk to the beach is paved and was a breeze with the stroller. The condo also comes with a wagon to bring to and from the beach - a total lifesaver. - While there was no pack and play or high chair, the VRBO owner pointed me in the direction of great baby gear rental places that do pickup/drop of - so easy. - We had our baby in a pack and play in the room with two twin beds. We brought portable blackout shades that we didn't end up hanging up because we thought the curtains in the room were enough. If your kid needs TOTAL black, you might want to pack some but for us this worked great even through 2 daytime naps. - This is a ground floor unit. I found this super helpful for getting in and out with a toddler. - There are two steps between the kitchen and the living room. This could be tricky with a smaller baby who can't navigate stairs as easily. Overall, this was an unforgettable family vacation. I'm already sad to be back on the mainland!

We really enjoyed visiting with the owner-a very nice man! This is an easy walk to some beautiful beaches, a great location! This is a room attached to the main house with a private entrance. It has all the basics needed, microwave and small refrigerator . It was a perfect location for many fun excursions , walks to see the sunset or sunrise!

Wow! Great location. We loved the beautiful scenery when walking. The pool and hot tub was steps away. The amount of beach items available was fabulous. We had a great time and would definitely stay in this unit again. Would highly recommend this unit for a family vacation.

We loved staying at this condo on Kauai. The condo is very clean and comfortable. It is a short walk to Brennecke and Poipu beaches, and there is a wagon provided to carry everything to the beach. The resort area is beautiful and the condo had everything we needed for the week. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pans and silverware. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels and bath supplies. The internet, TV and A/Cs worked well for the times we just wanted to rest at the condo. The Poipu area is a great location with lots of things to do, very nice beaches and great food nearby. We loved our time on Kauai!
