We spent a week here in a wonderful oceanfront 2 bedroom condo. If we were any closer to the surf we would have been in it! Units are individually owned so cannot speak to how the other units have been updated, however our unit 402A was very nicely updated and very comfortable. Beautiful ocean front pool and very accessible location...

We were three adults and a nine year old. We were on the third floor on the ocean. Gorgeous views. The sound of the crashing wav s against the rocks wonderful. The 2 bedroom 2 bath condo well appointed. Recently renovated. Would have preferred a different decorating style but all decorating is personal. All in brown. Not my favorite at...

After a week's stay at the Ritz in Maui, we came here to Unit 301A for a week to celebrate our anniversary. When we approached the condos they looked pretty old and we were wondering how it would turn out. I had seen pictures of our unit and the description said it had been totally rehabbed in 2014. And it...

The location of this "resort" is amazing. Right on the rocky coastline and a short walk to Poipu Beach. The resort consists of some privately owned condos that were build in the 1970s. Some have been upgraded, some have not. Our two bedroom unit was situated at ground level very near the pool. Our condo was very average with a...

We just rented at Poipu Shores for the 6th time, the condo is amazing and we keep going back. We have stayed in both 106A and 103A (same owners) and it is definitely the most spectacular location on Kauai. The condo and pool are oceanfront - views are stunning and we watch the whales from the lanai every day. The...

Aloha and welcome back Lisa. We really appreciate that you have chosen Poipu Shores for your vacation the past 6 years! I'm glad to hear that you enjoy the units and the resort. We're very lucky to get to enjoy this location right on the water. You can't build this close to the water on Kauai anymore. Mahalo and we'll...

We were attracted by the lanai shared with the condo next door. The location was great, and it was clean. However the patio furniture literally fell apart on us. When we arrived there was a pile of rusty metal pieces underneath the furniture and we could not walk in bare feet. When we moved the furniture 3 pieces between 10...

Aloha, On behalf of the Poipu Shores Resort, I'd like to apologize. As the general manager on-site, I wish I'd known about your chairs when we talked about the wine glasses, I'd have been happy to loan you some for the rest of your vacation.

I have to say, we felt this was a bit of a splurge as we finished our stay in Hawaii, and we were not disappointed. We were in unit 303a which was well stocked and upgraded. The highlight, though, having left the hinterland of the Midwest in January, was the VIEW! We could have easily stayed on the lanai for...

Aloha, I am so glad to hear that you had a great vacation with us! I agree the lanais are a fantastic place to watch the waves, sunsets and there is no better place to watch whales this time of year. All of our units are as close to the ocean as you can get. We'll look forward to your...

The view from the condo was amazing. We saw whales from our lanai almost every day. The pool was great and we never had an issue with parking. The staff were friendly. The location of the condo was great for getting around to see many places. We arrived very late so it was nice to have some coffee and goodies...

Aloha KauaiLover444, It's nice to hear that you enjoyed the views and our friendly staff but I'm sorry to hear that you found some aspects of your condo lacking. The owners of 201A chose a management company that is located off site, so that is not a unit I check before a guest's arrival. As the on-site manager and staff,...

We stayed at Poipu Shores over Christmas & New Year's and paid dearly for the experience. Was it worth it...? Probably!
