“Poipu Kapili Unit 33...Island perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

After researching condo choices for a month, we were thrilled to find our choice to be even better than expected! Unit 33 is downstairs, very spacious & open, decorated with upscale furnishings in "Tommy Bahama" style, fully stocked kitchen, excellent comfortable bedding (A/C in bedroom) & was extremely clean & fresh. Nothing dated or worn looking in this unit, it felt like being in a friend's home with everything top notch. The property is lushly landscaped and very well cared for, we enjoyed sitting on our patio enjoying the views every evening. This property is smaller, intimate and very quiet, NOT like some other huge condo properties we saw while there. The location is excellent, perfect for viewing the sunsets from the rock wall along the ocean, taking walks & the beach park just down the block. We especially appreciated the owner providing a notebook complete with every type of info we needed - a list of all local restaurants with ph #, personal reviews, & price ranges, lists of various activities around the island, and operation instructions for the TV/DVD, etc. We would highly recommend this property to anybody looking for a true island experience in the perfect condo.......no hotel room could ever come close!

We stayed at Poipu Kapili unit 60 this August and we are already planning our next trip back!
The views of the ocean were amazing, we had breakfast inside or on one of the two lanais outside and watched the waves coming in or the dive boat that comes up directly in front of the place. Also cocktails on the lanai for sunset.We could even see the ocean while we were in bed. The amenities both inside the place and outside we're the best. The owners are very easy to work with and helpful, they even called to check to make sure we were settled in. Can't wait until next time, Aloha.

Room Tip: Ocean Front is the best, Unit 60 is a corner unit so you get more light, two lanais and the ocean br...

A group of 4 girl firends and myself just came back from a quick trip to the Island and could not have had a better experience. We stayed in Unit 59 and found it wonderful, clean and very well furnished. Kitchen had everything we needed ,access to parking was terrfic, The master bedroom looked out to the beach accross the street and all night long we heard the waves crashing ( we kept the sliding glass doors open. The livingroom was lardge with access to a nice grass area just off teh Lanai. The lanai faced the beach and we were ablr to veiw the sunsets each night. Poipu beach was 2 minutes by foot and the waves were great fun.

The best part of the trip was the staff. They welcomed us so warmly you would think we came every year. Actually we talked with more than one guest who make it a point to come year after year because of the wonderful staff. When they stated anything we can do to make your stay better they meant it and you knew they would. To Buff and her team - Thank you. I truly cannot think of a reason to go to any other establishment - this is an awesome place

Room Tip: Shop at costco in Lihue for groceries as the local stores are a bit pricey for food. I loved the lo...

This condo (we stayed in Unit 38) was excellent in every way! Location just a short walk to Poipu Beach was ideal. Made a great base for exploring the island as Waimea and Lihue were an easy drive away.
The furnishings were modern and updated including the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Lanai overlooked the pool with an ocean view. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
I would definitely return to this property when I make a return visit to Kauai.

Poipu Kapili is a wonderful place — as a child, I came with my parents, and it was my absolute joy to share it with my husband on our recent honeymoon. The grounds and rooms are stunning, the views are unparalleled, the location is walking-friendly and beachfront, the pool and other facilities are high-quality, and the friendly service is outstanding. I would never stay someplace else on Kauai; this is the perfect jumping-off point for vacation adventures and the most wonderful sanctuary to enjoy. We can't wait to return and continue the tradition.

We had a phantastic condo right to the oceanfront. Perfectly designed interior and everything was very tasteful (clearly the owner has a good taste). It was one of the most pleasant stays in the entire Hawaii trip. Highly recommended - would be happy tgo return quickly!

Just spent the month of August at the Kapili in Unit 4. As always, my stay there was pleasurable. I have stayed in hotels and in numerous condos at the Kapili on the island and have found the condo route is much more comfortable unless you belong to one of the hotel chain frequent stayer programs and just want the points.
Unit 4 is a two bedroom, oceanfront condo. The furnishings downstairs are quite nice and the living room has a flat screen television. The kitchen has a deep sink and granite counter tops. The master bedroom overlooks the ocean and has a comfortable bed. The television in the bedroom (like the television in the spare bedroom) are old and the pictures aren't so good. Some of the condo owners have put flat screens in the bedrooms as well. The furnishings in the bedrooms, like all of the furnishings downstairs are in good shape and are stylish. The master bedroom is the only room with air conditioning (a stand-up, high efficiency unit).
The grounds are clean and are as well kept up as they have been every other time that I have stayed on the property. There are both charcoal and propane grills provided for guest use. The propane grills are the Weber Genesis series and are great to cook on.
The Kapili is in a wonderful location for watching sunsets and is quite popular with the guests who walk out across the small two lane road to watch them. As of late though, it has also become very popular with the younger crowd who like to pull over on the other side of the road, crank up their stereos, and drink and be loud (they can also become pretty vulgar and have been known to yell at the tourists as they walk by). It is for this reason that I gave the Kapili a four star rating instead of the five star that I usually give them. Had I been here on vacation I may even have given them a three star rating this time, though they have no control over what people decide to do when they pull over on the side of the road.

Room Tip: Choose a condo away from the oceanfront due to the noise around sunset.
