Overview

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.

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.

Location

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.

Poipu Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible place! It is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures on the website. Talk about oceanfront! The private lanai (shared only with the next door condo renters who were my friends) sits on top of turtle bay. Every day we saw families of turtles feeding on the lava rocks and coral in the ocean below. The crashing of the waves lulled you into a deep sleep each evening. During the mornings, we practically had a private pool for ourselves to do laps in before starting out our daily adventures around this gorgeous island. As for the condo (102B) itself, WONDERFUL! (My friends next door were very jealous.) Not only was it decorated so beautifully, it was stocked with every possible necessity for gourmet cooking, beach going, and even sightseeing from the deck. And the towels, both beach and bath! OMG. They were better quality than my own! So soft and thick. Even though we were there in the hottest month (August), we found that after a day or two, we were no longer using the air-conditioning. Instead, we were very comfortable with the shutters opened, allowing the fresh ocean air breeze to cool us off. The actual location of the condo is perfect as well. Just about 1 mile away is the best snorkeling beach in Hawaii! In less than 2 feet of water, you can start seeing schools of fish with those vibrant Hawaiian colors. Amazing! There are plenty of nice restaurants within 15 or so minutes driving, and don't miss the Beach House Restaurant--pricey but great food and lovely sunset. Thank you to the owners and caretakers of this Poipu Paradise! Mahalo!

Stunning! The private lanai with the sounds of the ocean are truly incredible!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely incredible!!!! Words cannot even begin to describe how amazing listening to the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks under the lanai all night truly was! It makes all of your everyday stressors just melt away. You can even spend long periods of time watching the Honu from the lanai feeding on the algae on the rocks in the water. We will most definitely be back!

The condo has modern amenities and well stocked. They have a lot of beach equipment for those who want to spend their days hanging on the beach. There is a safe in the closet to secure your valuables. Cell device is a little spotty because of the condo location, but the condo has wifi so for the most part it all worked out.

It's a very welcoming condo with plenty of books, games, and movies for your entertainment. Don't let the stackable washer and dryer fool you, for they laundered our clothes better than most full size machines. Not far from the condo is a Living Foods Market to buy essentials for our stay at the condo.

The condo has a binder with all of the info you might need during your stay. In the event you need anything do not hesitate to contact Patricia, as she was very friendly, helpful, and understanding.

It truly is an incredible place to stay on Kauai. Close enough to many local attractions in Poipu, as well as the rest of the island. At the same time, it is equally remote so as to let you decompress and simply enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Garen Isle.

We will most definitely be back in the near future!!!!

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!

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.
