Regency Garden Villas
Ranked #24 of 29 Speciality Lodging in Poipu
Reviewed 30 October 2013

The Garden villa section Buildings G and H of the Villas at PoiPu Kai is also known as Recency Villas and has a separate parking lot and entrance just before the Villas at Poipu Kai entrance. Thr parking lot of the Villas at PoiPuKai and the Ohana Villa separates the Garden buildings from the Poolside buildings.
People post reviews for these garden units under the Villas at PoiPu Kai as that is where the rental office is and is part of the same smaller complex within the Poipu Kai resort development, which includes Kahala, Manualoha, poipu sands, Makanui, Recency,the Villas, Regency Villas, and The Cottages. Look under teh Villas at Poipo Kai for more reviews. On the attached photo of the map the Poolside Villas are the ones in Black and the Garden Villas are the ones in Yellow.

Room Tip: Request a villa on the second floor to avoid being in direct view of parking lot and people walking...

We elected to stay here based on availability and price. I wanted Koa Kea or a free standing house, but Koa Kea was outrageous for a suite and houses that met my priorities (pool, modern decor, close to the beach avail for 4 nights rather than a week) were not avail.

The pictures of the Regency Villa 220 looked to fit our free standing house requirements (granite kitchen, cozy furnishings and clean) based on the pix, reviews and discussions with the mgmt company.

There was a mix up at with our arrival and we ended up with 221. Mirror image of the other unit and two stories, with no one above us. It should be noted that the mgmt company was exception in handling the mix up and timely in all things they promised. I really, really appreciated this. The size of the unit is great - probably close to 1600 sq ft. Travertine floors downstairs except carpet in the bedrooms where it's carpet. AC in this unit was kicking AND allowed you to adjust (220 had a lock box on the ac I would stay away from that unit for that reason). Kitchen amenities were great (subzero fridge, stainless and granite). Toaster and coffee maker also provided with washer/dryer including soap and bounce. TV/Cable and internet were good. 3 full bathrooms -awesome! 2 decks with outdoor furniture. We were there in June and were told it was not yet quite busy season, but the place was pretty quiet. I heard the neighbors on the balcony one morning and that was it. Other than that nice and quiet. Location was stellar - walking distance to 2 beaches, other resorts, both little shopping centers. Other things to note:

While advertised as a 4 bedroom, it's really 3 with a aloft that has 2 twin beds. However, you must get through the loft to get to bedroom 3. Not real private.
While AC rocks, the ventilation seems crossed with other units. 2 nights we came home to a garlic shrimp scampi smelling house. Clearly someone's dinner. Was gone by am (almost) but still kind of annoying.
Living room furniture uncomfortable. I guessed this by looking at the pix and confirmed on arrival. No recliners to speak of. If you want to sit with feet on floor with 90 degree bend at waist you are in heaven. Anything else, you're in trouble
This applies to deck furniture as well. No chaises, although there was room. Both decks were covered though, so wasn't really set up for sun tanning but still nice to lounge with a book on the deck if possible
No robes
Limited towels, but with washer/dryer you're good
Coffee provided is horrible (easily resolved with trip down the street)
Cleaning seems beow par (dirty baseboards, sandy floors, urine smell in all toilets, fridge handle sticky, carpet needs cleaning). Not sure if this was related to previously mentioned mix up or sop of this mgmt company
The beds seemed comfortable, but neither my husband or I ever had a fitful sleep. The place was quiet we just couldnt sleep. We had slept great the 3 previous nights at the Trump in Waikiki so it is possible for us to sleep comfortably :)

Overall, if you are a large family or a few couples with kids and on a budget, this place is awesome. Big, newer, great location. However, if you have Westin condo expectations or Fairmont/Trump taste stay away. The $ saved will only aggravate you. I wish I had forked the extra $1k to stay at Koa Kea.

Room Tip: Get a second floor unit to avoid folks trompsing around above you.
