There are lots of great condos and homes to rent in Poipu. Tell us a little more about what you are looking for -- cost, on the beach or don't care, number of bedrooms, etc.

I am a huge supporter of planning ahead.....year out in some cases (High season).......but I would probably advise against on booking anything this far out.....(16 months). Accommodation wise.

There still seems to be a fairly unstable climate in the real Estate/ Foreclosure arena...and it would invite increased risk to Book and send Deposits at this early date.

Certainly...continue to read up and famiarize yourself with the area...Poipu is a terrific choice .

Keep in mind many of the private homes and condos do not have A/C..if that is an issue for anyone in your party. I notice you will be vistiing in Summer.

Where is your friend's timeshare? Presume you want to be nearby them. Agree with Wanderlust. It's a good idea to start doing your research but I wouldn't lock anything in yet. Give yourself time to research. Many places open up their reservations calendar a year in advance.

So let us know what timeshare your friends own at and an idea of your budget per night.

We love Poipu Kapili.


We also like the Kiahuna Plantation and the Marriott Waiohai is nice.

But as Napaguys says, it depends on where your friends time share is and if you want to be walkable between the two places or is a 5 minute drive okay too?
