Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Kauai - Aloha Kai

1BR/1BA Sleeps 2

Fabulous Oceanfront - Ground Floor - Corner Unit Condo. Every Room in this unique unit is oceanfront, with Ocean Views. Step outside onto your patio and stroll across the 20 foot lawn to the seawall and you are standing at the edge of P.K.'s, one of the Best Surf Breaks in all Hawaii. A few paces to your left takes you to the edge of your bay - locally called Turtle Bay - to watch the turtles move gracefully through the shallow turquoise water. Your bay is also one of the Most Desired Snorkeling Beaches on Kauai. Stroll along the waterfront to the famous Beach House Restaurant next door, where you can sip mai-tais and watch the sunset, or enjoy the White Sands and Warm Water of the beach. And this is only the beginning. The whole island beckons with its unrivalled beauty, and wide variety of activities for everyone. The perfect place for a romantic getaway or a dream vacation!

About Walt and Joy

We fell in love with Hawaii on our honeymoon over 50 years ago, but only discovered the unique beauty, drama and excitement of the Island of Kauai about 15 years ago, when our daughter Debi Joy moved there with her young family, and began a real estate sales career there. She alerted us to best locations and the best properties on the island, and we finally settled on Kuhio Shores in Poipu Beach for purchase. We all liked 'Aloha Kai', our unit 109, so much that we partnered with Debi Joy in ownership. We (Joy and Walt) have been real estate brokers in California for almost 30 years, and have bought and sold many properties, but none of them has been so simply exotic as 'Aloha Kai'.

Walt and Joy purchased this condo in 2005

Why Walt and Joy chose Kauai

Aloha Kai is as close to the water as any building on Kauai. The seawall out front is 20 feet away across the lawn. On the bayside the lawn is only 12 feet to the bay rocks and the water. So you get water views from every room, and a sense of being surrounded by the sea. The unit itself is highly upgraded with a newly installed marble floor throughout, european style cabinetry, marble shower, new kingsize bed, and all conveniences. The snorkeling bay is right beside you, and around the other side of the building is a white sand beach for swimming and sunning, and out front is the famous PK's surf break. A new shopping center just opened within easy walking distance, and the Beachhouse Restaurant is right next door featuring spectacular sunsets from the bar. Poipu is known as the 'sunny side' of Kauai. So what more could you ask?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are enjoying your condo in Kauai. Great location. Nice accommodations. Surf pounding all day long. Life doesn't get much better. The stress is melting away. Take care. (e-mail to owner from Kauai.)

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place so much the first time five years ago, we didn't hesitate to stay here again. Walt & Joy are such friendly people and easy to work with. This unit is definitely the best in the building, being on the corner ground level. The inside is very clean and the bed is very comfortable. The sunset is the best on the Island. Now that we are home I really miss hearing the crashing waves 24/7. I will definitely stay here again!

If You Love the Water, You Will Never Want to Leave

My first review ever after so many years of travel. My husband and I just returned from 8 nights at this lovely condo with spectacular views and constant intimacy with the ocean. The condo itself is open and attractive and with a very comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. Look out front and see the sunset, turtles, whales and surfers. Look to the side and see more turtles and the sunrise. A few steps to a great snorkeling beach where tours bring people from near and far. Some of the best snorkeling from the shore I have experienced in many trips to Hawaii. Easy beach entry, keep enough to not be afraid of brushing against coral but close enough to really see the fish and admire their sparkling colors. A few steps from the beach is one of the most romantic and beautiful restaurants we've been to in Hawaii----The Beach House. The food is great and to be able to walk there a great bonus. With every day we relaxed more, and slept so well to the oceans lull. On our last day I was returning from snorkeling at "our" beach and someone asked me for snorkeling advice and wondered if I was a native and lived there. I wish.

What a wonderful spot for enjoying the island. My wife and I second all of the favorable comments made by others. Walt and Joy are very nice people and so easy to deal with. We loved the panoramic view, and yes, we too enjoyed watching the turtles. The living and dining rooms feel so open when the shutters are opened. And the sound effects - sleeping to waves crashing against the rocks - now that's an island experience! We made good use of the well equipped kitchen for a number of meals. We will try to book this condo again the next time we go to Kauai.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Walt and Joy were pleasant and helpful to work with and the condo was exactly as advertised. The kitchen is extremely well supplied and it was easy to cook, bake etc as all of the equipment was there. We stumbled into the owner's cocktail party the first night and everyone was welcoming. The island is beautiful and this was a good base from which to explore. We found the market and stocked up and enjoyed 2 dinners at the Beach House next door.

THe bed was very comfortable and the unit was spotless.

Thanks for a great stay
