Overall, we enjoyed our stay. It was great that there were beach chairs, an umbrella and a small cooler to use. An automatic ice maker and water dispenser in the fridge was great to have, along with a washer and dryer. When our key didn't work in the lock and we couldn't get in the unit, the response from the management company was very fast. The location was great. The elevator was always fast. Down sides: The unit could have been cleaner, the furniture was old and worn out and not very comfortable. There was no ceiling fan in the living room and the fan that was on the floor sometimes didn't work right. The standing fan in the bedroom was very dirty and rusty and often would only go on low speed. It really needs to be thrown away and replaced. The unit was very hot; we couldn't really feel much of an ocean breeze and fans that didn't work properly made it worse. It was even more hot when using the dryer because it appears to not be vented correctly--heat and lint from the dryer went into the bathroom.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a very good stay. The building is not new, but was well kept up. Had all of the amenities that we needed. It was very warm when we were there, and AC would have been nice, but not essential. When we go back to Kauai in the next year or so, I would stay in the same Condo if it were available. Really liked the 5th floor, and for our purposes, it was well located.

We spent a week here and have nothing but good things to say about the unit and Sunset Kahili in general. The location could not be more perfect - walkable to Poipu Beach, and just a short distance to Koloa. The unit was plenty of space for 3 adults with large suitcases. We especially appreciated the in-unit laundry, dedicated parking spot, beach supplies, and community pool. We made great use of the lanai, esp. on evenings where we ordered dinner for takeout from local favorites like Da Crack, Chalupas (try the blackened ono tacos!!), or Living Foods. What an amazing view in an amazing location!! Mahalo nui loa for your hospitality- we would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

Kauai 'The Garden Island' is a beautiful and mysterious place. You need to rent a car if you are visiting this island, and you need a wonderful place to stay. Marn's place is exceptional. Clean, bright, amazing view of the Pacific Ocean and one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept on. Plenty of beaches are in walking distance, and often, especially in the mornings, you'll experience nature in it's fullest with massive green ocean turtles basking on the beaches, monk seals resting on the shores and plenty of dungeness crabs lurking on and between the rocks. Location, location, location. Marn's place is perfectly located to experience all of this and so much more.

I’m almost hesitant to write this review as I feel the less people know about this gem of a condo the better. It had an amazing view, mosaic tiled pool, huge shower, bidet, giant screen tv, fully stocked kitchen and linen closet. It was super clean, quiet and a very short stroll to the beach. Highly recommend!

The apartment was well decorated and had all the supplies needed for a beach vacation! Best stocked kitchen made preparing meals super easy! Highly recommend this condo - would definitely stay again!

Well appointed, clean, quiet, and the always magical breezes flowing through. Our evening and cooking times could have been much improved if the lighting was better! Kitchen had dim lighting and no lamp had bigger than 60w bulbs. Went to Kauai rentals and they had no bigger bulbs. Otherwise a delightful place.

The decor and amenities were lovely. The kitchen offered nice dishes and cooking ware. My 2 adult daughters & I have stayed at Sunset Kahili before and love the location.

This place was exactly as described and really delightful. There was a turquoise theme going and the kitchen was darling and fully stocked! The views from the lanai were breathtaking and we enjoyed our coffee every morning just looking out at the Pacific. It is very conveniently located and quiet.

Hi, Ellen. Thank you very much for the stay. Incredible views! It was spectacular to be at your place during the last blue moon. Would on have to turn my head to watch the moon set on the ocean while laying on the bed. If I were to suggest something, I would say: 1. Your place is so spectacular that I would suggest a light remodeling if you can. 2. I would not keep old food in the fridge from previous gets. Some dry spices at the cabinetry only. 3. Did miss that welcome coffee and a small bottle of water that most VRBO places have. Just my candid suggestions. Thank you very much. Aloha

Seeing and hearing the ocean, as well as beautiful sunsets while relaxing on the lanai - that's what a visit to sunny Poipu should include. The interior had an authentic island theme and was well-appointed. Thanks for the coffee bean grinder for enjoying local coffee! I've stayed at the nearby Grand Hyatt multiple times, but this felt more like the first visit to Kauai (including ocean breezes instead of AC) Would love to return!

King bed was comfortable. We did not use the twin beds. The Master shower was perfect. We had a great time exploring the South Shore and Waimea Canyon area from here. It was a fantastic stay and the checkin was easy. We will definitely use Kaui Vacation Rentals and Real Estate again.

We were very happy during our entire stay at this condo. It was super clean, very well stocked with all the essentials that you might need like beach towels, equipment, toiletries - and the kitchen had all the stuff you might need if you are wanting to cook, including a few spices. We really enjoyed our too-short stay and would definitely consider returning to this exact location again. Also, owner was super responsive and easy to deal with!

Great location and view of ocean. You hear the waves crashing into lava rock shores every night. The condo was equipped with everything you need to cook. The condo pool was relaxing and refreshing. The sunsets were beautiful. Great location to number of beaches. I would come back again in heart beat.

Stayed in August 2023 and this property did not disappoint. The view from 408 was beautiful. Sunrise from the sea and sunset on the lanai. Hear the waves crashing as lay down for the day. The ice makers were a plus for our daily outings and not needing to stop for ice. All beach essential we enjoyed, our toddler loved the beach toys. Kitchen was a bit small, but we hardly used it. No AC but was manageable with the fans and breeze at night. I would say the only con was getting in and out of the parking lot. There is a big dip and with our rental (mini van) it was scraped every time going in and out of it. No matter which way we angle it lol. Great place, I would stay again.

We really enjoyed our stay at your condos & could not believe the full ocean view from our lanai! I don’t think we could have afforded a hotel room with the same view! We found the location to be perfect for heading out to all shores for activities & the area was so much quieter than Kaapa for instance. The condo was well stocked with everything you could need including beach chairs, umbrella & towels, all things you couldn’t bring with you! The bed was comfortable & you could hear the waves crashing outside! The bathroom had a spacious vanity & there was great closet/storage space to easily unpack & feel at home. We didn’t cook meals but the full size refrigerator & the coffee pot came in very handy. It was a very hands off process as far as the rental company goes but we were given phone numbers to call if we needed anything so we had our privacy! We could not have been more pleased with these accommodations & would book it again! Mahalo!

The condo was perfect for our stay in Kauai. The balcony was my favorite part. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking breakfast each morning. It was nice to have laundry in the room as well. There are several books on Kauai in the room which were helpful in deciding which activities we wanted to do. A few things that might be helpful. It was very hot. Yes we stayed at the end of august. The problem was the fans could not be turned to high because they were very loud. The other issue was the beach chairs they supply. We carried them all the way to the beach to find out one was broken. We appreciate that there was a cooler but it didn’t have a handle. We could still use it but it was awkward to hold. When doing laundry the washing machine backs up into the shower. It really stunk bad. I notified the owner and she was going to check this situation out the next time they visited. Other than the fans, the chairs, the cooler and the washing machine, the place was still amazing. We saw turtles in the surf every day from the balcony. Poipu was within walking distance and so convenient. One last thing is to be careful driving into the parking lot. We scoffed the underside of the rental car on our way in the first night. We didn’t see that there was an enormous hump!! You need to take it on an angle if you have a regular car. An SUV would’ve been the better choice to stay here.

September 2023

Sunset Kahili has nice ocean view. You could hear waves crashing but not so loud it would wake you from sleep. (I am a very light sleeper). Beautiful sunset view. Short drive or nice walk to Poipu Beach which has all you would want; beautiful beach,snorkel rental,food,lifeguard, showers, bathrooms… The condo was beautiful and had portable fans as well as ceiling fans. Nice breeze comes through kitchen. People were respectful of the quiet times, in fact it was never noisy. The pool was nice and not used much at at, but you are in Kauai with beautiful beaches! The condo has all the cookware you would need, and while we were there, coffee, many condiments and staples(olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise…) Kauai is the most beautiful place!! Maureen is an excellent host and was quick to reply if you had any questions.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The photos and listing for unit were 100% accurate, we got exactly what we were expecting! The unit was clean and comfortable. The only suggestion I would make is to install heavier, light blocking curtains on the windows facing the water. The unit faces directly west and becomes quite hot in the late afternoon. And while the ocean breeze cools the unit the rest of of the time it doesn’t help at that time of the day. We found once the unit heated up it was hard to cool down.

I’m afraid to write too many nice things about this condo and then it won’t be affordable next time I visit Kauai. But the location is spectacular. The condo is clean and decorated so nicely. The complex is quiet and clean. I’ll only ever want to stay here every trip to Kauai.

This was our first time in Kauai and we were so glad that we chose to stay here. The condo is spacious, so beautifully decorated, extremely clean, and had everything we could think of and more. The king size bed was very comfortable and the complex is very quiet, so we got great sleep each night. The AC was wonderful to have as well. A very nice sized bathroom and appreciated the double sinks. Gorgeous views of the ocean right when you walk in. Quick walk (3-5 min) to the beach and you can see the turtles on the shore each night sleeping. Marn was so easy to communicate with and made sure we our trip was nothing but great. He also left us coffee and chocolates which was such an unexpected and very generous gesture. We can’t wait to visit Kauai again and would absolutely rebook this home. Thank you, Marn!

We enjoyed our stay! This rental has a great ocean view and is conveniently within walking distance to both Poipu and Brennecke Beach. We saw turtles, monk seals, and fish at Poipu, which is a very calm beach and great for snorkeling (note that the ocean floor is very rocky here). Brennecke is a sand bottom beach with high surf and was great for body-boarding. The only negative (which we were warned about by the host) was that we had trouble getting into the driveway without scraping the underside of our rental car. Even so, the scrapping was pretty negligible and went unnoticed when we returned the rental car, but just something to note.

Beautifully decorated, comfortable and equipped with every amenity we could wish for. Immaculately clean.What could be improved: There was no air conditioning, so it was very hot at certain times of the day. It was 80+ degrees inside the unit in the evenings due to the western sun exposure, even though all windows and louvers were wide open and there was a 15mph wind, and we had all the fans turned on.The magnetically attached shower head wasn’t angled enough to prevent water from spraying onto the floor.We appreciated the laundry supplies, but the Tide pods have too strong fragrance. It would be better to provide fragrance-free products.All in all, we would recommend Sunset Kahili 304!

The condo is conveniently located in a very nice area about ½ mile from Poipu beach and a couple of miles from the historic old Koloa town area which has a number of restaurants, shops, and brewery. The balcony faces the ocean with an unobstructed view. The owner, Maureen, has the condo unit stocked with all the amenities you will likely need for your stay including beach items such as chairs, umbrella, towels, and drink cooler. The pool is nice and uncrowded. We enjoyed our stay and would likely book this unit again if we return to Kauai someday.

We arrived to an uncleaned property. It put a damper on our stay even though the owner refunded our cleaning fee. I didn’t really feel like that remedied the problem since the owner was not out anything. The property is older with older residents. The pool was overly heated and chlorinated. Room was nicely decorated and a great location. I would stay at a resort next time. This place was expensive once you added in all the VRBO fees.

Kauai is one of our very favorite places on earth. We've visited many times over the last 35 years, but this was our first stay at Sunset Kahili. 507 was an absolute dream and an amazing place to stay to celebrate our 15-year-anniversary and to enjoy the very many things we love about Kauai! Denise and Gary have a gift of a place and have done a lovely job of setting up the condo to be very comfortable and a perfect home away from home. It was very difficult to leave after 9 nights but we most definitely hope to return again someday. Aloha and mahalo nui loa!

The remodel is incredibly well done and the condo has everything you need. You can also easily walk down to Poipu Beach to enjoy the water, the sunset, or the regular turtle and seal visitors. Our 2 year old also loved the playground right off the beach. This area is also a great jumping off point to explore the rest of the island. And, the view from the balcony will not disappoint! We stayed ten nights and didn't want to leave!

This condo/complex was everything my husband & I were looking for. Fantastic view, short walk to restaurants, beaches. Pool area was very clean, however we were always at the beach! We used the outdoor BBQ facilities a couple of times. Maureen was a great host & her home had everything we needed. We loved that she reached out upon our arrival to meet us & go over a couple of things. There isn't any air conditioning but even in June, the cool breeze flows through & keeps it very comfortable. We thank Maureen for her hospitality & should we ever visit Kauai again, we would stay here again.

Under 10 minute drive to many restaurants and grocery options. Internet speed was great. The ocean breeze and fans kept the temperature very comfortable. Comfortable bed too. Would love to stay here again!

This was a wonderful place to stay in Poipu, close to the beaches, beautiful view every morning on the balcony with our coffee. The place had everything one would need to spend 2 weeks in Kauai: full kitchen, giant screen TV, beach chairs, umbrella, mats, ice chests, snorkel gear, washer/dryer, swimming pool, ceiling fans in living room and bedroom (no AC, but if you open up the windows the cross breeze and fans were more than enough). Maureen was a great host, very nice, friendly and accommodating and was there to take care of the few minor issues that came up during our stay. This was a great place to stay - would definitely stay here again.

The only complaints we have are the rules around quiet time (8 p.m.). We also would have hoped for at least one cleaning since we were there for two weeks. The chemicals in the pool gave us both a rash. Otherwise, newly remodeled and picture perfect view! We went at the perfect time where sea turtles and monk seals were hanging on the beach. Very cool. The falls, canyon and backcountry zip lining were amazing!!!

We had a magical few days here. Watching turtles from the balcony, enjoying the space (super clean, recently renovated) and exploring the nearby area’s beaches and food scene. Every detail in the apartment is thought of and we couldn’t recommend staying here more. It’s quiet, has wonderful views and is perfectly situated on the south side of Kauai :) didn’t want to leave, felt so relaxed

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: Lovely in every way. I only wish our grandchildren (ages 9 and 11, and under supervision) could have been allowed the use the pool. They were ejected when their mother ran to put something in the garbage can. They are well-behaved but probably making noise, at 10:00am.

I really want to write a bad review because I want this place to myself! My wife and I loved it! Exactly what we needed. It was quiet, relaxing with no screaming kids at the pool. (Love kids just needed some chill time). This place is geared more toward older couples with the best sunset on the Island! We booked next years trip before we even left. The home was great, comfortable and the property manager couldnt have been better or more responsive. Not much room for improvement. A5 star all the way!! See ya next year!

Really enjoyed our stay at Sunset Kahili. Close enough to walk to Poipu Beach but very quiet and relaxing. Loved the ocean view from the condo and the walk along the beach trail. We didn't do a lot of cooking but the kitchen was well stocked. Perfect spot to explore Kauai!

The property had a beautiful view. We were able to hear the sound of the ocean at night. It was the perfect size for two. We enjoyed our visit to both the island and having a nice place to stay.

The view was amazing! In the first two days we saw whales, spinner dolphins, turtles and monk seals. The kitchen was well equipped except for a cork screw. Had to go buy a cork screw. We left it so future renters don't get here after traveling all day and find they can't open their wine ! Overall great place and a very nice pool area.

Amazing condo, everything you can think of has been taken care of here, clean and comfortable on the inside, and the view from the lanai is spectacular. On a few mornings we shared our coffee on the lanai with spinner dolphins right out in front of us, so close , honestly 100 yards out, and dozens of them! so incredible, wasn’t expecting that. Poipu beach is a 5 min walk, saw monk seals there daily. This was our first time to Kauai and this was truly a perfect place to start from. Thank you Denise for an amazing stay in Paradise!

Spacious room, with all amenities as listed. Good location, walk to Poipu Park/beach and easy access to the Poipu area.

Great view of the water. Ate many meals on the lanai. Watched whales from the lanai. Short walk to the beach with some good snorkeling. Walks along the shore past the Grand Hyatt Hotel and along the cliffs out to the cave reserve and beyond. A central location to visit all parts of the island from. When we go back to Kauai we will surely look to stay here again. Everything the two of us neede to make this a perfect anniversary 11 day holiday.

This property is clean and comfortable. Although it does not have air conditioning, fans and open windows made the stay cool and delightful.

We did not end up staying at this property due to a bug problem. The property was overrun with fruit flys to the point we could not stand being there and went to stay at another property in the area. Owner has so far not provided any relief on the funds we paid in advance. Apart from this issue, the property was well located and decently appointed and comfortable.

The location was perfect, we were close enough to walk to Brennecke's and Poipu beach and nearby restaurant. The property was well-maintained, clean, and very well-stocked, with more than enough supplies to last us throughout our weeklong stay. Vici was very responsive and made the check in and out processes smooth and easy. Would definitely stay at one of Vicki's properties agaii!

We had a great time at this condo. It was located within a 10 minute walk to the beach with turtle coves along the way. The view was panoramic and we were able to watch whales, turtles and dolphins from the lanai. Everything we needed to cook meals was available in the kitchen and having the washer/dryer in the unit was a blessing! We would definitely stay at Denise's condo again. The decor was beachy and furnishings very comfortable.

If you want to wake up for an amazing ocean view every morning, rent this property! It is clean, comfortable, has all the necessities, the location cannot be beat. The owner is quick tk respond. We spent lovely few days there and would like to go back again next year.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Rainbows galore. Great response to service needed to figure out how to use the TV. Clean rooms. Large deck is terrific. Weather was so windy that whale spouts were very hard to see. But best weather in the island is on this side of the island.

I'll never forget the moment we arrived right at sunset. Opening the door and seeing the pinks and oranges in the sky right in front of you out of the balcony door over looking the sea. It was beautiful to wake up to the sound of the ocean every morning and drink my coffee on balcony. My partner and I had a great time enjoying the place and south side of Kauai. Our host was helpful in getting us checked in quickly and providing directions.

This condo is fantastic! Clean and the views are gorgeous! Easy walk to Poipu Beach where the Turtles come to rest and the Monk Seals are right there too! A fantastic Vacation Rental!

Don't let the apparent age of this building fool you! This condo is beautifully updated and maintained. The furnishings are lovely and very comfortable; the kitchen is amazingly well outfitted - ready to meet your every cooking need! Join your neighbors in watching whales and toasting gorgeous sunsets!

Probably the best place we’ve stayed. Older building but great upgrades, very clean, plenty of kitchen necessities, and a fabulous view. Walking trails and beach access was easy. Highly recommend and when we return we will request this place!

My partner and I had a lovely stay - great views (we were able to see some whales and watch a gorgeous sunset) and great location (easy walk to Poipu beach, Waimea canyon is an accessible drive away, as well as exploring other local towns). Snorkeling gear and beach towels provided were greatly appreciated!
