About the property

As comfortable as this Poipu Shores condo is inside, what makes the location spectacular and unique is the dramatic 500 square-foot lanai cantilevered over the cove below. It is not a common area of the resort and is shared only with the one bedroom condo next door. It has its own private lanai furniture, chaises, and dining set, as well as easy access to the pool. Enjoy this delightful space for lounging, savoring your meals, watching the abundant sea life, and for one of the absolutely best sunset views on the island.

You will be enchanted by the relationship of the lanai to the ocean; it’s like being on a stationary sailing ship. Families of sea turtles and colorful fish graze in the cove throughout the day, dolphins cavort and spin in the waves, and in winter parades of Humpback whales cruise by, often putting on an athletic show of their own.

This truly amazing one bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom Poipu Shores condo has been completely remodeled and refurnished. It was designed and decorated by the architect and artist owners to make the most of this unique location perched on the very edge of the ocean above crashing waves. It is a serene retreat, yet only a five minute walk to the sandy shores and many amenities of Poipu Beach.

The ocean is the focus of the intimate condo home with tall walls of ocean-front windows providing stunning views of the surf, the sea and the sky. Louvers provide almost constant cool tropical breezes. Large mirrors echo the views from surprising perspectives, bringing the ocean into the living areas. Artwork by the owner and others enhances the uniqueness of the space.

Beauty, practicality and comfort make this condo a delight to occupy, with cool polished marble flooring throughout. The ceiling fans draw in the ocean breezes, and air conditioning is available if needed. Multiple window coverings and plantation shutters allow you to adjust the light and ocean breezes to your preferences.

Counter tops and window sills in all the rooms are of slab granite flecked with glittering pyrite and quartz, with swirling patterns reminiscent of the sparkle and flow of the ocean below.

Hand crafted on Kauai, the Shaker style glass-fronted cabinets contain the well equipped kitchen and entertainment options. A full range of appliances provide all the comforts of home. Under-cabinet LED lighting is cool, energy efficient and pleasing. The living area includes two comfortable love seats, and the dining area lets you sit right above the ocean and enjoy the incredible views. There are flat screen TVs in both living and bedroom, each with a DVD player to keep you up-to-date and entertained. There is a large library of books of local interest, as well as a DVD collection also with a focus on the Kauai theme.

The carved teak platform queen bed has a latex pillow top mattress, and fine linens ensure your comfort as you drift off to sleep listening to the ocean's serenade. The generous en-suite bathroom provides for privacy and comfort. The river rock floor in the shower is a reflexology treatment in itself! A half-bath is conveniently located off the living room.

You will find beach chairs, towels, coolers, binoculars and other amenities tucked away in the closets.

When you can tear yourself away from the condo's amazing views and comforts to explore the wonders of the Garden Island, Poipu definitely offers the most convenient, central location, and the most reliable weather on the island. It is ideal.

In all of Kauai there is but one lanai that sails out over the waves – 102B at Poipu Shores.

About Patricia Biehn

Owned by an architect and artist, this couple was a many time returning guests of mine. They had always wanted a piece of this part of paradise and this condo was their dream come true. Their love of color and good tast is apparent in the choices made in remodeling this home.

Patricia Biehn purchased this condo in 2011

Why Patricia Biehn chose Kauai

Poipu Shore is a small boutique type of complex, with only 39 condos in 3 buildings. All condos are oceanfront and the oceanfront pool is a delight. Far away from the road, you will only hear the ocean, you will sleep like a baby, lulled by the waves. A short stroll along the ocean brings you to Poipu Beach Park, one of the best in Hawaii. If you want peace and quiet, Poipu Shores is the place for you.

What makes this condo unique

The oceanfront views, oceanfront pool, quiet location and proximity to the amenities of the south shore, make this an ideal location for your stay on Kauai.

Better than my wildest dreams

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful! It was the lanai and the proximity to the ocean and the sea turtles that really make this an outstanding location! Sea turtles by day and stars by night- I was in heaven! It was a romantic place to spend our 40 th wedding anniversary ! It was incredible! Thank for sharing this lovely condo!

Wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. In fact, all the Poipu Shores condos are ideally located and have stunning views of the ocean. I don't know if you can also count on the inside of the other condos being as nice as 102B though. 102B is comfortable, clean, and updated. The AC units are a MUST have and we were thankful for them. We loved being 1/2 mile from the beach and Brenneckes deli/restaurant. Again, the location directly over the ocean was truly amazing. The waves crash big and there were tons of sea turtles. We would stay here every time.

Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We loved this unit. Stayed for 5 nights. Our deck was over the water and there were at least 5 giant sea turtles we could view right of the deck. Nice pool and close to everything in Poipu Beach area.

Living the Hawaiian dream

  • 5 of 5

This condo is spectacular. My husband and I loved every moment. Stayed here for 6 nights and could have easily done 6 weeks. Well stocked and very clean. Nicely decorated with owner's art work. Spent lots of time watching the giant turtles swimming below. Easy stroll to the beach. Worth the extra money for the private lanai with your own lounges and outdoor setting. Pool was warm. Loved listening to the waves at night. Thankful for the split system aircon for the hot afternoons. Great modern bathroom with walk in shower. Handy laundry facilities inside condo. Free car park and Sunny Poipu is a great central location. Limited but good restaurants within walking distance. However lots of restaurants within a 5 min drive.

Mahalo for your hospitality. Patricia you were a pleasure to deal with and always quick to respond.

Turtles right off the deck!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need provided, right down to books & binoculars. Patricia was quick to provide answers to anything we needed and Brett was right there to fix the in room safe that was not working when we arrived. WiFi is spotty due to all the cement buildings, but still adequate. Maybe the best feature was the walk in shower with choice of hand held or wall showerhead! And of course the green sea turtles swimming right off the deck.

The only drawbacks for us were the need for a handicapped access parking space-although the office provided a marked space, other cars parked in it so we often had to walk quite a way up/downhill-not fun for someone with mobility issues. Perhaps they could number the spaces? Other issue was no easy access in the pool (i.e. stairs into one end) Only way in/out was a set of bars with slots in the pool wall-not easy for older folks to use.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. We were happy to have you as a guest and sorry you had some trouble walking due to a leg injury prior to arriving. The safe has always worked perfectly, our housekeeper told us you were not operating it correctly. Handicapped parking is available at check-in when obtaining your parking pass. It provides spaces closest to to this clondo. We cannot help unresponsible people parking in the handicap spots and hope that you called the office when this occurred. Many guests needing special parking do not have handicap stickers on vacation, but are registered for special parking with us. Unsure of your refernce of only one access point to the pool. In addition to the one you described, there is a step access on the east end with a handle assist. We appreciate your 5 star review and hope you enjoy the balance of your trip.. Mahalo, Patricia and Tom

Magical place and breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I only got to enjoy 3 days and 2 nights in this fantastic apartment with private lanai .....but oh. my. gah! We loved it and wished we'd had more time there. We needed a larger abode for the first part of our honeymoon but then sized down and moved to the south shore for the latter part. My groom's words, "Now this feels like honeymoon." Views, surf, turtles, sunsets were spectacular! So sad to leave....

Poipu Beach is a wonderful destination on Kauai. The beaches, the views, the turtles are abundant from your lanai, whales are abundant in season and dolphins are visible daily. Wonderful restaurants are with in either walking distance or within 2 miles. Golfing, surfing, snorkelling, body surfing, tennis and any other activity you desire is near by. Located on the southsore for optimal weather and centrally located for touring to the north shore or the west side, remember the rest of paradise awaits you. Take a helicopter tour to see the areas that are not accessible any other way. The island is magical and we hope you feel it's impact. Kauai no ka oi, or Kauai is the best, and you will soon find out why.
