Poipu Shores is in the perfect location for many activities on the south coast of Kauai. It was a 5 minute walk to beaches and a 15 min drive to Port Allen for scuba diving. The staff were great and the place was nice and clean. Would definitely stay there again.

A102 was incredible! The bed was just as phenomenal as was promised and the waves put me right to sleep every night. From the pool, to the grounds, everything was immaculate. I loved the shower; amazing space and water pressure (which is very important to some people). The washer and dryer were very convenient as well. The sheets were divine,...

We stayed at Poipu Shores #304A for 12 days recently in August. It was our first trip to Kauai, and to Hawaii, so we wanted everything to be perfect.

I rented this unit from Patricia Biehn. From my first communication to her through departure, she was responsive, available to all questions, patient, and truly full of the spirit of Aloha. The unit 303A, is in great shape. It's fully furnished, including boogie boards, beach towels, washer, dryer, and full kitchen, with dishes, etc. Balcony overlooks the ocean, with pool...

Aloha and mahalo for writing a response concerning your recent stay here at the property. Our ocean front location does provide great entertainment from our family of honu who live in the coves and in season, the whales that pass by. We hope you do get the opportunity to revisit the property.

We loved staying at Poipu Shores. It could not have been more perfect for us. We flew 5,000 miles to get to Kauai and the best part was sitting on our balcony listening to the ocean and watching the turtles. The staff were kind, helpful and friendly. It is not the Hyatt.

We just returned from Poipu and declined our condo in this complex upon arrival.
