Reviewed 19 June 2014

We booked our condo at the Manualoa at Poipu Kai through CoastlineCottages.com. Lori was very easy to work with. They have several other property options to chose from that are also affordable. The walk to the beach was short and rewarding. They are in very close proximity to a couple of really good eateries (Brenneke's and Kalapaki Joe's). We had pool privileges at two of their onsite pools and used one of their "community" gas grills. The condo was stocked with beach chairs, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, beach balls, etc. Tip: the summer months are better for snorkeling on the north shore. But you can spot multiple turtles in the surf on the southern beaches at any time. Our condo did not have a/c, but it was not too uncomfortable.

This place is perfect for families who don't want to eat a lot of restaurant food and need the flexibility of cooking, having their own space, and get tired of hotels. We stayed here several times, as a couple, with a baby, and with a child and grandparents. All times, the place was fabulous. Beautiful grounds, landscaped like tropical gardens, pools everywhere so you don't have to go too far, a beautiful walk through the gardens to the poipu beach which is so perfect for small kids. Easy to park, easy to get places. Kauai is paradise on earth for a relaxing family vacation. Recommend this for everyone.

If you are mobility impaired, ask for a lower floor unit and close to the beach, as the property is large and it can be a long walk to the beach. Very nice, customer friendly staff who will go out of their way to help.

Room Tip: If you are mobility impaired note it's a large property. The garden rooms are a hike to the bea...

Aloha luvnicehotels2014,

Kauai certainly is paradise on earth! We're happy to hear you found your own fantastic and beautiful quiet place on our lovely little island. Suite Paradise manages a large inventory of beach resort villas. Many of these are located on the first floor and are a short walk to the beach. Our reservation department can assist you with the selection of a pre-assigned villa that will address all of your needs and desires. Pre-assigned condos cost a little more because they leave gaps in our inventory, but this option allows you to rent the property of your dreams. Aloha, until we meet again.

Sincerely,

Liz Parisi

First off the folks at Suite Paradise are great to deal with. The Kahala property and gardens are well maintained.
We stayed in Unit 424, it was roomy, clean, very well equipped, comfortable bed, nice view of the garden. It is a bit dated but reasonably priced for the area. We stayed in this unit in 2012 and quite enjoyed it.

The only problem is the traffic noise. It seemed to be much louder and more constant this trip. The unit faces a main thoroughfare and the traffic is steady from 7 AM to 10 PM. After the first trip we learned to tolerate ear plugs which made a big difference and were a necessity this time.

Kahala is a great location
Beaches –5 min. walk to Poipu Beach one of the best beaches on the island, great snorkelling
Ship Wreck Beach 5 min. drive nice walk along the cliffs, okay waves in front of the Hyatt
Waimea Canyon - 40 minutes to the start of the road, this is a must see, fantastic views, great hikes
Allerton & McBryde Gardens - 15 min. drive, beautiful
Shopping - 10 min. drive to Koloa, Big Save grocery store (good selection), 2 minutes to Poipu Shopping Village (Red Box movie rentals) 5 minutes to The Shops at KuKui’ula (lots of fun places to eat)

Kauia is an awesome Island and Poipu is the best area to stay in.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs, constant traffic noise near Poipu Road

Aloha HappyTravelerCAN,

Kauai certainly is an awesome island and Poipu Beach is a wonderful place to vacation. Thank you for your compliment to our wonderful staff at Suite Paradise. We always enjoy hearing from a happy and satisfied guest to our beach resorts. Many of our resort properties are decorated in a more traditional island style reflective of a less complicated, more relaxed era. We apologize for the traffic on our country road which can get busy from time to time. As you probably know as a return guest, Suite Paradise has a wide selection of beach resorts from which you can choose. Most of these are located away from our country roads. Our reservation department at Suite Paradise would be happy to help you pre-select and guarantee one of these villas for your next visit to paradise. Just give us a call!

Sincerely,

Liz Parisi

We stayed in Kahala 111 for a week. Staff works hard to make sure guests enjoy stay. This is an older property and it shows some wear. But, it is clean and convenient to the beach. Pool is clean and the spa is nice to relax in after a day swimming, snorkeling, etc. We had a two-bedroom. Plenty of room fro a family of four. Ate on the deck quite a bit. Mostly ate in except for musabi at Big Save in Koloa. Cheap breakfast there as well if musabi is not your thing. Breakfast for $5. But, I digress. Kahala is just fine. TV's in all rooms, full kitchen, big fridge. Held a lot of food since we did the Costco thing instead of restaurants. Also kept the beer and mai mix cold, so we were happy not to go out. We are regulars to Kauai, so the whole restaurant thing has past us by. You can have a good stay at Kahala.

Aloha tqj,

Thank you for your nice review of your beach villa. It sounds like you and your family had a wonderful time swimming, snorkeling and relaxing on our beautiful island beaches. Many of our homes and condos are indeed decorated in an island stye that is reminiscent of
past Hawaiian era in which you are transported to a lovely remote island. Suite Paradise also manages resort properties that are
decorated in a more contemporary style. These, too, are available for you to rent during your next visit to Poipu Beach. Just give our reservation department a call and we will be happy to assist you with your selection.

My family stayed in Manualoha 902 for three weeks this winter. The location of this resort is perfect and you cant beat the weather and ammenities in Poipu. The service of the staff is great and will respond promptly to any calls/requests made. We were a little disappointed with the condition of our unit. Although it was clean, it needs a major overhaul as the decor, beds and appliances are definitely 15+ years old. We didnt care too much as we were in Kauai to enjoy the outdoors. However, I dont think its the best value for our $ spent. Although it is a two bedroom unit, it is not suitable for four adults. The second bedroom had two twin beds in it and wasnt really big enough to put two suitcases and two people in comfortably. This unit should be rented out for a family with two kids and not four adults!! The property is beautifully maintained, the pools are great etc. We didnt have A/C but you dont need it with trade winds and ceiling fans. I would return to Poipu Kai but would make sure I had a more updated unit. I suggest management reduce the rent on units such as this one until the owner is able to renovate.

We had a wonderful one bedroom condo unit. It was centrally located and very well stocked with every thing you might need. The grounds are just beautiful and easy to get around. The on site restaurant Kalapaki Joe's is fantastic and has a wonderful view of the ocean, great service, and great drinks too. There are many choices of great restaurants very close either by walking or a short car ride. The shooing it great too. The vendors at spouting horn have good prices and are very nice. We would come back in a heart beat.
