Hello , my name is Iwona Szajer and live on Kauai. I am originally from Poland and my husband is from Germany. We call ourselves 'gypsies' as we live in many beautiful places , and yet Kauai is always home. I arrived on Kauai in 1991 and I have made it a home for the girls. They have gone to schools here and they consider this Kauai home.Tatjana , the eldest, lives on Oahu but ultimately wants to be back on Kauai. Ariella in still in school at John Hoppkins and is hoping to one day do good for humankind :-) Daniel , our son has just entered Kindergarten here on the island. We love what Kauai has given us...someone said to us once that moving here has given them an extra 10 years of life...we don't know about that , but what this place has given 'us' is many wonderful memories...we love the life style here...we hope to share some of it with you.
Iwona purchased this townhome in 2012
We have lived and owned the adjacent unit since 1994. It was always our wish to buy this adjacent unit as it would be perfect for a 'bigger' family. It is perfect for a small family but also if more family comes we can still be together but separate
When I moved for good to Kauai in 1994 I searched for a place that would have a 'blend' of many things. I wanted a great location, a safe place for the girls to be outside, a place where I could enjoy running and hiking. A place that was private and yet where I could meet people. After many visits I found Poipu Crater and it was PERFECT! I truly felt ( and still do ) that this is Poipu's little secret . My friends and neighbors use to say that all the time. So many people in Poipu don't even know that this place exist. Before I bought this cottage, I have lived in few other units and ultimately made the decision to buy the one that I currently own. I made that decision because of the location. My unit is truly in the BEST location. I have the morning sun - I can have my breakfast on the lanai ( it's still not too hot ) and in the afternoon am able to enjoy the outside as well . My unit is perched on top of the Crater and because of its unique location it is comfortable all year round. The morning sun warms it up in the morning , the prevailing trade winds keep it cool all day and I have no or very little mosquito's! It's these small things that one can only find out after truly 'living' in the place and because I had the chance to 'try' other cottages and was lucky to be there at the time when I had choices. I chose this particular one because it is the BEST! I have LIVED there and raised my girls there for 8 years. My husband and I always envisioned ourselves retiring here...but as our family grew we had to find a bigger place. We still have a long ways to retirement , especially now with our 5 year old, but at least we have the knowledge that one day if not us, the girls will be back in 'their' home.
Enjoyed the BBQ area and eating on our lanai. Lush surroundings , lizards on the pathway and tropical birds singing made it a place to remember.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay here at Poipu Crater, but there were somethings that need improvement. Both toilets need the mechanisms inside the tank replaced because they take an excessively long time to fill, which is annoying when you have to listen to it. The full sized mattress in the bottom bedroom is uncomfortable because it is too soft. There were several other minor things that I notified the rental management company about that need attention (chain on the fan doesn't work, alarm on the refrigerator door, etc.). However, Poipu Crater townhouses are a wonderful location, walking distance to beach and there is plenty of parking at the complex.
Loved the privacy and super mellow attitude of everyone at the condo. Glen the grounds keeper was VERY friendly and helpful when asked what we should do and where we should go to eat. Everything he suggested was ONO!
We enjoyed the lanai and being able to cook at home. Both ceiling fans in the bedroom had problems - master bedroom didn't work - they had 2 box fans instead - much louder than ceiling fan. The downstairs fan and light went on frequently and was not quiet. The upstairs lamp by bed had a short in it - needed to be replaced. We did call to get the bulb fixed on the lanai and that was done for us same day. The automatic coffee maker should be replaced - looks grungy. It was nice staying in more like a home than just a big hotel.
We loved staying at the Poipu Crater house! Quiet, calm, beautiful, this house was a little removed from the tourist-y parts of Poipu--which aren't all that touristy. The morning sounds from birds was remarkable, and listening to geckos chirp at night amazing. The kitchen has just the right tools for meals, and the layout of the bedrooms worked well for our family. We made ourselves at home all week, and many times vowed to return to this exact rental. An excellent stay!
From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at home. The property is beautiful, clean and filled with everything to make our stay comfortable, everything was exactly as it appeared in the add, and honestly a little better. Beautiful beaches and shops near by, easy to walk to or a short drive to anything you need to get you through your stay.Communication with the owners was easy, convenient, and made the entire process better than I could have hoped for. The sleepy town of Koloa is friendly, easy going and charming. We loved every minute of our vacation and that is directly related to our stay here in the Crater. We can't wait to come back and can only hope this property is available.
The cottage at Poipu Crater was perfect for our stay in Kauai. It was an easy walk to restaurants, beaches, and ocean. Its central location allowed exploring. The property also allowed a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the island. An added plus was sitting on the lanai and watching the full moon rise. We would absolutely stay at this property again.
Close to the ocean and a 8 minute stroll to the BEST beaches on the south side of Kauai. Hawaiian cottage is located in the heart of Poipu - walking distance to not only beaches , but also shopping , dinning and spa. Great place to stay if you enjoy hiking , whale watching and running as there beautiful paths from the cottage which go along for miles.
