Any closer to the ocean and your feet would get wet! Poipu Shores 101A sits directly oceanfront, allowing your ohana (family) to experience the best of Hawaii up-close-and-personal.

This condo has been completely updated with three a/c units and high-tech touches like an iPod dock, DVD player, and free WiFi. Curl up on the sectional couch to get amazing views through the patio doors and large picture windows.

Just like home, the fully-equipped and updated kitchen has everything you need to feed your hungry guests. Serve up your meals around the table just off the kitchen or out on the lanai’s four-person patio table.

The views don’t stop once you go to bed; the main bedroom has a huge picture window overlooking the Pacific. The guest room is well-appointed with extra sleeping accommodations for more guests.

Beautifully redone, both bathrooms have high-end touches like marble counters and tile showers. The condo comes with other helpful amenities like a stackable washer and dryer, linens, and beach towels.

Modern amenities make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets.

Why We Love This Home
Just Steps from the Ocean: The condo sits right on the ocean, so close you can taste and smell the saltwater. During the day, sit on the private lanai to watch sea turtles and dolphins splash in the blue waters as the warm breezes blow across your face. In the winter months, observe humpback whales migrate through the area.
Convenient Access to Pool: Located on the ground floor, the condo’s private lanai is the closest to the pool entrance. Wake up each morning and claim your spot around the heated pool that sits right on the water.
Instagram-Worthy Sunsets: Each night, gather in the grassy area next to the pool with your fellow travelers to experience some of the most incredible sunsets. Enjoy amazing views and make new friends in the process!

Grab the towels, umbrellas, and beach chairs, and take a short five-minute walk to Brennecke Beach, a hot spot for turtle watching and bodyboarding. A large grassy area with picnic tables and covered pavilions connect Brennecke to popular Poipu Beach. Along with snorkeling, swimming, and surfing, Poipu Beach also has a small baby beach protected from the waves that are perfect for kids.

Wonderful stay, appreciated the well stocked kitchen and beach closet. Couldn't ask for a better view of the sunset, stars, and ocean. Pool was warm and easy to access out the back patio. I think this is the best spot in Kauai! We stayed with our 3 small children.

My wife and I came to Poipu Shores for a much-needed escape from the Michigan winter for two weeks in January 2023. We were joined by my brother and his wife from Los Angeles for 5 nights during our stay. The condo was a perfect fit for our needs with easy access to south shore restaurants, beaches, morning walks, and scuba. Sunsets, whale watching, and seeing the evening stars from our unit made for lots of special memories. We will be back!

Ocean waves right outside your condo! We had a great experience at this Poipu condo. It was well stocked in the kitchen and plenty of beach chairs and boogie boards to enjoy at the nearby beach! Snorkeling was good and seeing the sea turtles and monk seals at Poipu beach just a short 15-minute walk away added to our Kauai adventures! Air conditioning worked great and was definitely needed as we were visiting from a colder climate so it took a while to acclimate to the warmer temperatures on Kauai even in November. Lots of food options within a 5-minute drive and great beaches to walk to in both directions from this condo made it perfect for our time on vacation. We had no issues with the condo and the communications from the management company were timely and informative without being annoying or bothersome. We had a great experience all around and this condo was part of our great time on the island. 11/13/2022 at 8:36 AM

The communications were informative and timely! Sometimes there are too many emails from management companies and or not enough. You all have it perfect! Great information and a simple check in right after we got settled and one more part way through our stay. Thanks for allowing us to check in a couple hours early and making those communications easy as well! Nice job! We appreciate your team members

Very cooperative.
We did have one concern; we got home to find "Anthony," one of your maintenance employees in our unit. He thought we had called because our TV remote wasn't working and explained he had the wrong unit. I checked with guest services and the confirmed that Anthony was an employee. However, we were later advised he has forgotten his sunglasses and we found them on our bathroom sink counter. We wondered why if he was there to check on our TV, he left his sunglasses in the bathroom.

Very easy to get a hold of and communicate with. Friendly and knowledgeable.
This home is amazing and just as advertised! Our family of 4 loved every second of our stay! The location was ideal, we spent hours and hours at the ocean front pool, and the walk to the beach took only a minute. The owners thought of every detail, including a beach cart and beach toys! There are great BBQs on property and the management was easy to talk to. The air conditioning was super important to us because of Hawaiis humidity by being right on the ocean. The fact that this unit has AC was a huge plus as many dont. We are picky when we travel and we can honestly say that we 100% would recommend this place. Aloha!

Best location in the complex 101 was the perfect spot in a lovely place. With the sound of the surf crashing just beyond our windows and the pool just a few steps away, we felt like we got the most out of our stay. The unit was clean and spacious and included beach towels and chairs so we didnt have to buy any for our short stay. We loved it. 7/24/2022 at 9:14 PM

Your team was very helpful to the extent of their ability. However, I would suggest: (1) that there be a better system to contact maintenance/security in a timely fashion and (2) better follow such that if someone offers a compensation for an inconvenience, it actually be carried through. Perhaps this is in the works, but I have heard nothing more from your team other that this link to complete the survey. I think a personal communication stating "sorry and we'd like to make it up to you by ......" would have been appropriate.
The property is nice. I don't know if I can fully get behind Poipu Shores (horrible parking, not allowing your team to have keys for emergencies AND then not being readily available for issues). Would like to have had some direct follow up for what transpired with the faulty lock.

Ocean Sounds We loved the proximity to the Ocean and breaking surf. We saw an abundance of Ocean life here, turtles, rays, and spinner dolphins. The grounds are lovely and the grounds beach path was very convenient.

My husband and I decided to check out O'ahu, The Big Island, Maui, and Kauai on this trip. We fell so in love with Kauai, that we're already talking about planning another trip here. The island itself is amazing, but honestly having this place to come back to makes the trip even more memorable. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We felt so at home here and couldn't have asked for a better stay. Everything was perfect from check-in to check-out. We highly recommend this Airbnb!

Very good communication and very friendly. Everything worked very well.
We enjoyed it a lot. Having the check in with the front desk is a bit weird since they have limited hours. In the end we left a phone message and that worked. We used the Lanai door as the main way to leave and enter the condo as the front door is less convenient and not as nice. The Lanai door does not have a key though. It was no problem for us- we just left it unlocked- but others may prefer to have lockable Lanai door. (security bar does not work if you want to leave that way)

Kauai is in a climate that is considered to be both tropical and within a rainforest category, known for its lush flora and fauna.  The environmental factors create a situation where pests (insects) are nearly impossible to eradicate from every property constantly.  Many bugs fly in when a door is open at night or are simply small enough to come in through screens on windows and sliding doors.  For this reason, Koloa Kai engages regular quarterly pest control in every property to keep the pests at bay.  Despite these efforts, it is possible to have pests in your property, and if that happens, Koloa Kai will take all measures possible as quickly as possible to mitigate any issues.  Any monetary compensation, refunds or discounts will be given solely at the discretion of Koloa Kai and will only be available in situations where the company agrees that an infestation has occurred.  Koloa Kai reserves the right to investigate and provide remediation of any pest issue. The mere presence of pests in the property shall not constitute grounds for monetary compensation.

Koloa Kai LLC provides only short-term rentals with a maximum reservation of 30 days.  Each reservation is fully documented and provides for a fixed date and time for check-in and check-out, rental rates, associated fees, and all other requirements required by local and state law.  If a guest books consecutive reservations where the check-out and check-in dates are concurrent, then a cleaning fee will be assessed, and a Koloa Kai designated cleaning professional/inspector will have unrestricted access to the property for the purposes of cleaning and inspection of the property.  During the time between reservations, described by the check-out time and check-in time specifically, the guests shall vacate the property so that the designated cleaning professional/inspector can conduct a full reservation clean and inspection in accordance with Koloa Kai’s standard practice.  Guest access to the property shall be restricted specifically to the date/times of the reservation documentation and may not be extended upon verbal or text message confirmation.
