About Kristin Ellingson

We purchased the condo in 1977 and it has been enjoyed and loved by four generations.

Over 30 years of family vacation fun has been a true delight for our family. The youngest member of the clan is my eighteen year old daughter who growing up in the mountains of Wyoming, an avid skier, learned to surf on Kauai. The condo has truly been paradise for our very large clan, we love it.

Why Kristin Ellingson chose Poipu

It is the best location of any condo complex in the Hawaiin Islands, we are surrounded by the beautiful Pacific Ocean on three sides and are the closest condos to the Ocean in Hawaii.


What makes this condo unique

The condo jets out the farthest to the ocean from the building getting you even closer to spectacular views to the east, south and west. Perfect for whale watching, spotting giant sea turtles, enjoying the surfers, and viewing amazing sunsets. The condo has wrap around glass, floor to ceiling windows in the dining area. New furniture as of October 2013 and a recently remodeled kitchen (November 2014) and bathroom.

Because of the wrap around windows, a great airflow thru the condo.

A great kitchen.

Tinted windows keep the heat out before it gets inside the condo

and allows no impediment of the spectacular views.

AC installed April 2018!!

Incredible ocean view, make sure you're home in time for the sunset!

  • 5 of 5

We were racing home everyday to make sure we could watch the sun go down from the balcony! I stayed here with three other guests, and we had a wonderful time waking up each morning to watch the sun and surfers from the breakfast nook. There was enough beach gear (chairs, a boogie board, sun umbrella, water noodles, beach towels) included with the rental that we didn't need any gear of our own. Full kitchen as well. Plenty of parking in the lot and the building staff was friendly. The beach right at the location is a bit rocky, but makes for great snorkeling, and you're a very short drive to sandier beaches. There are plenty of places to eat out or buy what you need right nearby. Great location overall. The shower right in one of the bedrooms was odd at first, but totally functional. Not messy, and better than waiting to shower while someone else is in the bathroom. I would absolutely stay here again.

The best location on ththe island

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give 6 stars for locations! So amazing to wake up and watch the turtles, surfers and whales. The water was choppy all over the island but we braved it on the last day and snorkeled and I regret not going sooner. It was clear and amazing. Condo had plenty of chairs, coolers, some snorkeling equipment, all you need for a vacation. Washer and dryer are coin operated and the dryer was out of order so we skipped laundry instead of lugging it to another floor. The nightly parakeet fly by was quite the site. The sun goes down and the birds come by. Enjoy your visit and I hope we get to go again.

Beautiful view and excellent communication from owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Kristin's condo! Kristin was very responsive to all questions and provided info on things to do while in Kauai. The condo had an amazing view, so close to the ocean we could see turtles swimming and enjoyed watching the surfers daily. There is a nice snorkeling spot around the corner, a baby beach we used with our infant a short (<5 min) walk, and shops/restaurants also within walking distance. We stayed cool with the ocean breeze with windows open day and night. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Kristin!

The reef in front of the condo complex is inhabited by a colony of giant sea turtles that are quite playful and fun to snorkel with. 3 of the best surf breaks in Hawaii, PK's, Centers and Acid Drop are right in front of tne condo.
