About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy a spectacular sunset view from the large private lanai or the privacy of the living room. Every room has an ocean view!

In 2017, we completed a major remodeling. The entire kitchen has been remodeled with new cherry cabinets, granite countertops, many new appliances, new tile, new lighting, a new window over the sink, a new sink and faucet, and new kitchen accessories. The kitchen is more open and spacious, with better cabinet storage options. The kitchen lighting is on a dimmer switch to allow guests to control the intensity and amount of light.

The bathrooms have new vanities, new granite countertops, new sink and bath hardware, new toilets, new lighting, and new mirrors. The master bath has dual sinks. The master bedroom has a new sliding door out to the spacious wrap around lanai, and new floor tile. The lighting is on dimmer switches to enable guests to control the intensity and amount of light in the bathrooms.

The bedroom and living room ceiling fans are new with LED lighting. There is also a new LED dining room fan as well. The electrical and lighting switches have all been replaced, along with new bedding in both bedrooms. There is new wall décor and the condo has been completely repainted.

In the Spring of 2018 the remodel will continue. The master shower area will be replaced with a new walk-in shower, new sliding windows in the master bedroom, and new tile will be installed in the dining, guest bedroom, and guest bathroom areas. Also in 2018, the cabinets in the living room area will be replaced.

The front row of the ocean sounds and spray will beckon you to extend your stay. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee or relax with a glass of wine from the large and secluded lanai. Relax with your favorite book from your own private chaise lounge chairs on the lanai. Watch the rolling surf and dancing ocean spray from the master bedroom, living room, dining room or kitchen.

The unobstructed winter viewing of whales and playful spinner dolphins is among the best you will find on the Island. The close proximity to the water will enhance your viewing experience. Enjoy the incredible ocean surf and water spraying through your own privately viewed spouting hole.

Near world-famous Poipu Beach and Shipwreck's Beach, you are boogie boarding, snorkeling, swimming, or golfing within minutes of this centrally located condominium. Enjoy all the south shore has to offer from this ideally suited location.

About The Owner

My wife and I live in Colorado, but we fell in love with Kaua'i when we first visited in 1996. Our first visit to this resort occurred in 2003 when one of our sons wanted to travel to Kauai as a high school graduation trip. We loved it so much we bought a unit on that trip. My wife and I are empty nesters now, but we still love the magic of Kauai and this location. We have so many people we have worked with and talked to over the years, that we can't see ourselves ever not owning this incredible location. We get the best of both worlds: an incredible ocean and living close to the mountains.

E Komo Mai (Welcome) to our Kaua'i home.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Poipu

We fell in love with this property the minute we walked in. Not only does every living area of the condo look out at the water, but you are so close you hear and feel the ocean as it crashes into the rocks right below you.

So many guests have commented about needing to 'force' themselves to leave the condo because the views are so incredible. You can sit on the lanai and watch the sunset, and in the morning you can look for sea turtles or the Spinner Dolphins that frequently swim by.

Don't just see the water on your visit: hear and feel the force of the ocean right in front of you!

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This condo had the most beautiful view imaginable. The ocean was a continuing presence--the gorgeous water, the sound of the lapping waves and the ever-changing sky. We all slept well on the comfortable beds. The condo was very well-appointed and included a fully equipped kitchen with every gizmo you could possibly need. There was plenty of room to relax without feeling crowded. The agent responsible for handling issues and questions was responsive and helpful.

Unbelievably wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here. The flat is perfectly set up and has everything you need, plus the view from the lanai is to die for. We watched sea turtles and whales from the terrace every day, and there are tons of brilliant beaches within a short drives. Excellent snorkelling off the beach at Poipu. Thank you, I like to think we'll be back!

Amazing view and beautiful accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this spacious clean and elegant condo. Fabulous views of the sunset, whales and birds were plentiful. The waves crashing right outside lulled us to sleep each night, while the hot tub and pool were much appreciated. The remodel didn't bother us one bit and we enjoyed all of the helpful tips you provided. Thank you for letting us stay!

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is amazing! When you sit on the lanai, the ocean is right in the front. We saw countless dolphins, seals and turtles go by while sipping coffee on the lanai. There is a blowhole right in front of the lanai and I can still hear the waves crashing onto the rocks as I am typing the review from my home. Everything is very nearby and accessible from this location including the beautiful Poipu beach. The owner and manager are very nice and responsive. During our stay all our queries were addressed promptly by the property manager - Evelyn. She was wonderful! We even had the apartment cleaned in middle of our stay by Annette (whom the property manager sent over) for $20/hour (total $40).

Now for the not so great points about the condo. The apartment is charming but a bit dated. The kitchen is oldish but functional. It is very well stocked with essentials. The bedroom with the queen bed is separated from the living room by a sliding partition so there not much privacy in that bedroom. The other bedroom has 2 twin beds which can work for some people if they use it for their kids. The sleeper sofa does not open out flat and we had to get the mattress off the sofa and put it on the floor for our children to sleep on.

But overall this is good value for money and the pleasant interactions with the owner Kelly Carter and Evelyn the property manager were the cherry on the cake. I would definitely consider staying at this property again.
