Our trip to Kauai was planned for sometime with my 24 year old daughter and my 12 year old daughter in mind. I wanted a place away from any traffic so we could just enjoy each other. It was beautiful and secluded. We had so much fun and the pool was almost always just us.
“We thought it was paradise island! Loved it so much!”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Poipu Crater #24. It was very comfortable and had everything we wanted. It was clean and the surrounding crater was beautiful. We especially loved waking to the song of all the wonderful birds each morning. It was so relaxing and enjoyable and a retreat after being at the beaches and driving around. We would love to come back again in the future.

We have stayed at Poipu Crater and in this specific unit many times. Poipu Crater is a no frills kind of place and thats what we like. Don't expect air conditioning, pool service, stuff to rent and daily cleaning. Do expect comfortable condos, nice people at the pool and to be within walking distance to the beach (about 1/4 mile over the hill). And you can't beat the price! Great for families--we did a family reunion here several years ago and rented several units. People went and did their own thing around the island during the day and returned to the Crater for poolside grilling in the evening. Ps: If this isn't the kind of place you are looking for, rent something else from Parrish. They are absoulutly wonderful to work with!

We always have found Poipu Crater to be one of the best places for our family
to stay on Kauai. We've been coming here for 20 years now and even though
we've shopped around have not found anything to equal it's value,
convenience, Hawaiian charm and quiet.
The Parrish Collection is easy to work with. the few times we've had a problem
they've been right there to fix it. And we appreciate the discount for returning

Raves: perfect for families! This condo was a great deal bigger than my 2-bdrm Bay Area apartment and a great bargain to boot! In May, the off-season, the weather was perfect (only one really hot day) so we didn't miss the A/C at all. We loved being able to save money on food by using the big, well-appointed kitchen. The grounds were beautiful, well-kept, and quiet. The location was great--midway between canyon hiking in the west and nightlife in the east. Great beaches for kids are a short drive away. Wi-fi in the clubhouse only meant I wasn't tied to my laptop and enforced relaxation time. :) Nice to have barbecue available for guest use, too. Washer/dryer in unit was greatly appreciated!
Could be better: Technically, the beach is a "10-minute walk," but with all the gear you have to bring, and especially if you're toting a kid, it's easier to drive. Beach parking was not a problem. Also, a very minor quibble--neither of the built-in hair dryers in the bathrooms worked. The pool was definitely on the small side, but our daughter preferred the beach anyway. Some construction started with backhoes, etc. two buildings away from ours near the end of our stay--it would have been nice to get notice that this was going to happen.

The Poipu Crater had just what we needed, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a great deck and plenty of room for two couples not to run into each other the whole trip. We took advantage of the BBQ and the pool and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Although maybe a little more dated than other condos we looked at this was a great place - especially for the price. We'll certainly be back.
