I booked a last minute trip to Kauai (our 4th visit in 3 years) for my teenage daughter and I to reconnect. This studio unit really was perfect for what we needed. My teenage son actually tagged along at the last minute and although it was a studio, we brought a twin air mattress and he slept outside on the lanai (his choice). He loved it out there. This unit is in a great location as it's toward the back and has a GREAT view of the ocean from the lanai. Nothing quite like waking up, having coffee and viewing the ocean. The condos are situated across the street from one of the best snorkeling spots on the island! You really can't go wrong with this unit or location.
Every morning I took a run to either spouting horn (1.5 miles one way) or to the Starbucks (1.5 miles the other way). It is the perfect distance from anything you could possibly need. Although we had a car, we walked quite a few places.
There are two shopping plazas within walking distance ..one that houses the Starbucks, a general store and a few other local shops and the other that has some more upscale shopping (Quicksilver, Tommy Bahamas, etc) and quite a few nice restaurants. I'll be reviewing the restaurants later.
Also within walking distance is a dive shop, a place to rent bikes and another small local store.
You can also walk to the Sheraton (Poipu beach) pretty easily or its just a short drive.
The Beach House Restaurant (one of the most incredibly sunset dinners) is literally right across the street.
I'm telling you....for the price, the location and the value....this place can't be beat.
We went through Poipu Connections (poipuconnection.com) to book this condo and they were incredibly easy to work with. Our flight actually got cancelled and the unit was still available so we extended our time by 2 days, they were very accommodating about this.
I am seriously thinking of purchasing a unit in this condo or very near by. I feel as though Poipu has become my home away from home.
We love you Poipu...can't wait to return!
