Pu'u Poa 406, A Spectacular Oceanfront Luxury Penthouse Condo

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enter through the carved glass doors to the first of our two lanais and breathtaking views of the mighty Pacific. From the atrium entry of PUU POA 406, the tropical decor of our newly decorated and furnished family room beckons to a larger second lanai with upscale gas grill and gorgeous sunset views from our famous Hideaways Beach to Bali Hai.

Open wide the sliding glass doors of the master bedroom and sleep to the lullaby of crashing waves. From the moment you arrive, to your final swim in our heated pool, your unforgettable stay in our expansively equipped penthouse condo will be one of luxury, peacefulness and romance. Welcome to Meli Makai - OceansSong at Pu'u Po'a - Kauai's premier condominium complex!

This luxurious two bedroom, two bath penthouse unit is one-of-a-kind. The main bedroom of this spacious, 1500 square foot condominium (2200 square foot including the two large lanais), is en-suite with large bathroom, with romantic 'his and her' twin showers, and a relaxing Oriental-style soaking tub. The second bedroom, which has a great view of the mountains and waterfalls, has a queen-size bed. Both the master and the guest bedroom beds have plush, new, custom-made Island Dreams pillow-top mattresses.

Located on the top floor of prestigious PU'U PO'A, this end unit has spectacular views of the reefs and surf from its two lanais (see pictures), from the main bedroom, and living room, and from the kitchen and dining room.

Elegantly refurnished and redecorated, all of the appliances are new and the kitchen is completely outfitted with microwave, stove, oven, blender, etc. There is also a new washer and dryer. The large family room has cathedral ceilings, cable TV, DVD/VCR player, IPOD Docking station, CD player, and high-speed DSL Internet access for your laptop. There is a second cable TV in the main bedroom.

In a quiet, end-of-the-road setting, PU'U PO'A is a solid concrete building, with magnificently maintained tropical gardens, and a pool and tennis court on the property. Because of its top-floor location and concrete construction, there is little noise from neighboring units. Our holiday home is a cliff-edge unit with magnificent close up views of whales, surfers, and sunset views of Bali Hai.

The complex is right above and a short path from a secluded beach called 'Hide-Away's' which has exceptional snorkeling over shallow, bountiful reefs (see pictures). PU'U PO'A Beach is just a three minute walk from our condominium in front of the Princeville Resort.

Princeville Resort has many amenities including a spa for pampering. Winter brings the whales into your panoramic views of the ocean and the high surf attracts world class surfer 'dudes' daily. Princeville is renowned for its beautiful golf courses and nearby rustic Hanalei has great dining and shopping.

Relax to the sounds of the surf and enjoy a romantic sunset with panoramic views of Bali Hai from our two lanais.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We'd go back to Puu Poa 406 in a heartbeat.

You know you're in a great spot when the view out the back window (mountains; palm trees's; golf course) is almost as great as the majestic ocean views as seen from three different angles from the kitchen/dining room. The photos on vrbo don't reveal the great ocean views from the DR window. The lanais (two of them) are huge and both are positioned to capture some amazing sunsets. The design of the unit was pure genius as you face the sunsets but catch every bit of the evening breeze which had me reaching for more cover on most nights. And, although the unit is on the fourth floor you have only a story and a half of stairs to climb due to the elevation difference between the property entry and the ocean side.

It appeared the unit has been renovated recently as we saw lots of granite and new cabinets. We enjoyed the soaker tub in the evenings and all the appliances and fixtures functioned properly.

The owners have clearly worked hard to make their spacious and beautifully decorated island home both attractive and comfortable. Air conditioning would have been a real plus in the late afternoons when the sun found the west facing windows but, other than those few hours in the late afternoon the temperature in the unit was comfortable. All things considered, #406 is a great value as comparable units on Maui would rent for roughly twice as much.

The Puu Poa complex is perfectly located in the up-scale area of Princeville and only five minutes or so from a Foodland grocery store and only ten or so minutes from Hanalei Town. The grounds on the unit are well maintained and provided a beautiful setting for two weddings during the eight days we spent there.

We loved our stay at Puu Poa #406 and will think of it as our home base next time we're blessed to make it back to Kauai.

Amazing week at Pu'u Poa #406

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with 2 friends just recently returned from a week in Kauai. While there we had the priviledge of staying in Pu'u Poa #406. Truthfully the beauty that surrounds you as you look out from the lunai is simply breath-taking beyond all words..from sunrise to sunset the horizon is ever changing and one is spellbound by the beauty of it all. This condo is well decorated, quiet, relaxing, and equipped with everything you could possibly want plus it's easy to find and located close to beaches and wonderful little towns. If you enjoy a good cup of coffee after your morning walk you can stroll over to the Princeville Resort and sit on their balconey and overlook the Hanalei Bay. We've traveled the world and have never found a better deal for our money.

Pua Poa 406 Stay January 15, 2018

  • 4 of 5

Pua Poa 406 was top drawer, clean and views to die for watching sunsets on beautiful Hanalei Bay across from the five-star St. Regis Princeville. The unit has great furniture with beautiful tropical patterns. One suggestion is to trash the bed spreads and replace with crisp, white coverlets that sing of cleanliness. The puffy, dated spreads need to go! We were amazed to find that the owners had left us with a full tank of propane for cooking; however, we did not use it. The brand new washer and dryer were valued and appreciated. A little elbow grease and fine steel wool would clean the stains in all sinks. It was delightful to enjoy a movie each evening on Netflix. Thanks for the game and good reads. We will return.

Amazing !!! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for making our stay at your beautiful condo a memorable one. We enjoyed waking up to the beautiful views while sipping coffee(thanks to the coffee maker provided) on the balcony every morning. You provided all that was needed (especially the air mattress) for a comfortable stay and will gladly consider staying there again in the future.

all about the views and location

  • 5 of 5

This place is all about view and location.

The good: This place is spacious, airy, and has a ton of windows that look out over the oecan. The view from the decks, the kitchen and the master is killer. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean every night. The sunset view was also gorgeous. We never felt that we had to leave to find a better viewing location. Keeping the fan going and the doors open kept us cool and comfortable for the majority of our visit. Also, the location is awesome. It is just above Hideaway's Beach and we enjoyed the mellow and sparcley populated beach every day. The pool was also very refreshing.

The eh: We couldn't find any beach supplies, except for towels, so I was glad that we rented everything we needed. Also, almost everything in the house needs to be freshend up. The knives were dull and much of the silverware was put back in the drawer dirty. All of the fixtures and furniture and paint are quite old, but honestly, because the view was so great, it didn't bother us that much. Something a few other people have mentioned in other reviews, is that sound really travels there. The location is very quiet and serene, so you can hear any conversation or anything going on outside (kids playing music at the pool, dinner conversations, etc). One night, our neighbors had some visitors until around midnight and even though they were inside and in an enclosed lanai, it was very loud.

None of these things would prevent us from visiting again. We had a lovely time and this is a great place to come for rest and relaxation.

Owner's Response: Aloha Nicole. Thanks for your comments. I guess you didn't find all the beach supplies which are in the outside closet on the lanai, near the gas BBQ. We keep all our beach chairs, floaties, beach mats, coolers and toys there to keep (at least some of) the sand out of our condo. We have notified the management company to refresh the cutlery, (and of course to make sure its clean before new guests arrive) and to touch up the paint, which unfortunately often takes a beating from guests' luggage. Sorry it was noisy at times during your stay - house rules are to shut it down at 10:00 pm. Please let the complex manager know if it is an ongoing problem - they've called KPD on occasion when things got inconsiderate. But we are pleased you enjoyed your stay in our holiday home - if you choose to return the maitais are on us. Mahalo, Noel and Erica

Gorgeous view from lanai!

  • 3 of 5

Great location near terrific snorkeling (Hideaway) beach. On the 4th (top) floor of the building was great for the view and for the exercise as there isn't an elevator! It was hot and there is NO A/C so we requested a free-standing fan as the ceiling fan was pretty worthless. The management company brought one promptly and that helped. Only 3 stars because condo lacks a good supply of dishes, needs better fans and more effective sun block shades on the windows.Only 4 of us there, but needed to wash daily to have enough coffee cups and bowls, plates, etc for breakfast and lunch. Refrigerator door gets stuck open and warms up contents. Afternoon sun pours in main windows but there are only signs of past curtains or shades - nothing currently there to black sun. Did I mention it was hot even though it was May??

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the views from our two lanais - they are well worth the short 1.5 flights of stairs you walk up to our penthouse unit from the parking lot on the third floor level. And we are sorry you found the Kauai springtime warm. I'm sure it was a shock to the system coming from a late winter in the Colorado highlands to an island in the tropics. On the other hand the only blizzard you need to worry about in Kauai is from the local snow cone shop. Very few north shore Kauai units have AC as we prefer the cooling breezes coming from the mountains. We also find the "Big Ass" ceiling fans we have in all living areas do a great job if properly regulated. With regards to window coverings in the family room, we have state of the art solar guard on the expansive windows and sliding doors as most of our guests love the sunset views. And our kitchen is more than fully stocked for a vacation rental, and as the sign posted on the fridge states, please close my left door first. Despite all of the above, we are glad you chose our unit for your vacation. As the locals say "no worries, enjoy the day, Brah" and chill with a mai tai as you watch sunset over Bali Hai.
