Each unit has a different owner and looks completely different, so search for reviews of the unit you want. Unit 321 was comfortable and well equipped.
One bedroom with balcony overlooking park and view of ocean. One bathroom - shower only, no tub. Full kitchen, dining table comfortable for 4 people and living area with sofa & 2 chairs with window overlooking pool/garden area.
Room has: hairdryer, iron & ironing board, enough bath towels for 4 people, all kitchen needs including blender, toaster, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker & filters, dish soap and new sponge. Also: 2 beach chairs, 2 boogie boards, 2 fins, 2 snorkels, and beach towels. Free wifi, 2 TVs, CD player. One umbrella (regular, not beach). The bed is king size, a bit soft (we prefer firm), but was still very comfortable.
One small table and 2 chairs on the balcony. None of the balconies are private. We met a few neighbors while sitting out on the balcony.
There is no air conditioner, but with the windows opened for a nice breeze, there is no need. No washer and dryer in the unit.
The pool is not heated so it is a bit "refreshing". Some people complained that the pool looked dirty - it's not. The bottom of the pool is painted black, but the water was crystal clear and clean. I did talk to someone who works there and she told me the pool area is going to be completed redone soon (was it because of too many complaints of a dirty pool?).
As far as the roosters, they are everywhere in Kauai, so just accept it!
There are 2 parking locations: outside right in front of the Prince Kuhio, or the parking garage with the entrance at the next hotel. We had no problems finding parking spots in the garage.
Location is great for walks to Spouting Horn in one direction (about 20 minute walk), or in the other direction to the Kukui'ula shopping center (about 7 minutes walk) with lots of good restaurants and shops.
Great snorkeling spot in front of the Beach House restaurant across the street. Better than Poipu beach snorkeling.
Beach House restaurant was good but pricey. If you want the exact same sunset view, go and sit on the lawn in front of the restaurant then come back for dinner in the room or somewhere else.
Just so some of you readers won't be disappointed, I would like to say that the furniture, and the unit in general, is not new/updated/special. On the other hand, I feel so terrible saying that because I really liked this place and hate to write anything but good things about it. This unit was clean, more than adequate, as comfortable as home and definitely worth the price. If you want luxury accommodations with granite counters, designer sheets and daily maid service, there are plenty of other places in Poipu to spend your money.
We have stayed at several places in different areas of Kauai, but now that I have found this place, it is the only one that I definitely will be back to. I can't wait to stay here again!
