Newly renovated designer 2BR/2BA with high-end finishes, spa-like bathrooms, custom woodwork, chef's kitchen, A/C throughout, full-size washer/dryer, and top-of-the-line appliances make this luxurious cottage a rarity on Kauai. Step out on the private lanai, take a deep breath, sip your morning coffee and enjoy the beautiful lush gardens of the 7 acre Poipu Crater (yes it's an actual dormant volcano crater!) with colorful birds and abundant gardens,  The covered lanai is connected to both the kitchen and living room, offering a blend of indoor + outdoor living, and the spacious two-story floorplan offers a lot of room to spread out. The top floor offers an extravagant master suite with a king bed and en suite bathroom complete with a soaking tub.  The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and connects to the open living and dining areas. Two full bathrooms, one up and one down, means its perfect for vacationing couples and smaller families.  Tennis courts and a resort-style pool with a community rec room, barbecues, and ping pong provide for hours of entertainment when you aren’t relaxing on the lanai or off adventuring on nearby Kauai beaches, golf courses, or hiking trails. Poipu Crater is within walking or biking distance of beaches, great restaurants, boutique shopping & has many walking paths to enjoy along the coastline. 

Why We Love This Home

Ground Floor: Everything you need is accessible from the ground floor. The main bedroom is on the second floor.
Large Deck: Enjoy a meal on the large deck overlooking the Poipu Crater's gardens with bananas and bougainvillea.
Private, Intimate Complex: Poipu Crater has 15 duplexes on seven-and-a-half acres in the heart of sunny Poipu means you are often the only people using the amenities
Gather up the beach chairs, umbrellas, and a cooler and walk the 10 minutes down to world-class Poipu Beach and Brennecke's beaches. Shipwreck's and the Grand Hyatt Kauai is only a 15-minute walk. If you’ve got enough stuff for an army, pack up the car instead and make the quick two-minute drive.

We loved our stay in the crater! It was truly spotless a brand-new kitchen, stocked with new appliances and cookware. Everything in the house felt new and clean. They provided beach chairs, umbrellas, and other beach-going items, which we used every day. We walked to Poipu beach every day just 5-10 mins away! The bathtub in the primary suite was fantastic, and our older companion was very comfortable in her first-level room. We would be beyond happy to stay here again.

This place was amazing; very clean, and quiet and had everything we needed. Highly recommend. Fully equipped kitchen, board games, pool floats, high-speed net, TV, and AC to name a few. We went to the community pool just once, it was nice. Didn't get to use the tennis court or the awesome soaking tub or the laundry unit, next time! Short story: my phone fell on the ground behind the headboard, when I looked down to pick it up, I was so impressed with how clean the floor was underneath the bed. kudos to the cleaning team, thank you! A few small things surprised us a little, but not a deal breaker though: (overall 5-star from us) (1) the height of the master bed was kinda "fun" to get in and was quite high. I am 5'7" (2) there were a lot of ants on the kitchen counter; we kept everything inside the fridge but a fully sealed snack bag was attacked by these tiny ones that we had to throw it out (3) the property was located down a slope; a bit of a hike up to get out/go for a walk.

Beautiful, clean, and well-appointed condo centrally located in Poipu. The condo is about a 10-minute walk from the beach. The place is nicely laid out with a good kitchen space, a comfortable living room, and lovely outdoor deck with a dining table. The master has a great soaking tub and comfortable soft bed. The place has a cool and very open design, with internal windows from the second floor to the main living space. You cant see into it but the noise isolation isnt great. It worked well for us staying there as a couple but I think if we had been there as two couples I mightve preferred more sound isolation.

The location is lovely and the lanai is special. You can tell it is freshly remodeled and there is care in the items in the home. It is completely empty of food or condiments so keep that in mind when shopping. Quiet and serene, and it has air conditioning if needed. The main bedroom is upstairs so make sure the stairs arent a problem. We enjoyed our stay. Hard to beat Kauai.

Without a doubt, this was one of the most beautiful stays Ive ever had on Airbnb. And by far, the best of her in over 40 years of visiting Kauai! Im not sure which was better, the interior or the exterior surroundings. If youre looking for a quiet place to stay where you have peace and serenity when you dont want to be in the busyness of tourism, this is the place! Never once saw or heard any of the neighbors. This place feels very secluded. The concert every morning of the birds was so beautiful and tropical. Everything inside was quality and comfort. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, including a variety of small appliances. Most definitely will be staying here next time I am in Kauai.

This was our first experience of an Airbnb outside of Europe and the standard was WAY higher than we are used to. The location was great, the place was beautiful, and had all the big things you need (pool floats, beach chairs, umbrella, etc) and all the little things that as a hand luggage traveler, just made the stay so easy!

Tree House in Kauai This was a beautiful property in an excellent location. The rooms were nice and the property was clean and new. We loved sitting on the patio looking across the lush landscape while listening to the birds sing. It was almost as if you were in a treehouse.

• Reservations canceled 30 days or more prior to arrival date are 100% refundable.   

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.  

Hawaii Laws require that GET (4.712%), Kauai TAT (3.0%) and TAT (10.25%) taxes apply to the cleaning fee.
