When you are relaxing at Poipu Shores in a beautiful oceanfront vacation rental, it will become immediately obvious why this is one of the most sought-after locations on Kauai. This beautiful oceanfront retreat has breathtaking views where you can watch the turtles swim below daily.
Located on Kauai's beautiful South Shore, Poipu Shores has one of the best views on the Island of Kauai. Imagine yourself sitting on your lanai admiring the rainbows or watching the sunrise over the water with the gentle trade winds flowing by. This is an ideal spot for dolphin and whale watching (in season) as well.
Just minutes away, the world famous Poipu Beach offers a beautiful spot perfect for swimming, snorkeling or laying out in the sunshine. While snorkeling in Poipu, you will discover a variety of colorful fish, including the state fish--Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. There is a wading lagoon for toddlers and young swimmers. Poipu Beach also has a large grassy park with children's play area, picnic area, showers and restrooms. Brenneke's Beachside Deli, across the street, offers cold drinks, deli sandwiches, snacks, and shaved ice.
Adjacent to Poipu Beach, you will find Brennecke's Beach, one of the top body surfing and body boarding beaches on Kauai. Waves break consistently throughout the year, but it is usually best during the summer months.
There are two restaurants less than a ten-minute walk from Poipu Shores vacation condos. Casa di Amici's dining room is open-air, al fresco, casual, romantic, take-your-time dining at its finest with grand piano music on Saturday nights. Brennecke's Beach Broiler overlooks Poipu Beach where you can enjoy steak, seafood, pasta, sandwiches and an assortment of organic salad selections. Their bar is a great stop for pupus and to watch a game.

We loved staying here and we are already booked in the same unit next year! It's hard to beat the large semi-private deck and the view of the whales.
The unit was clean and properly stocked when we arrived. It isn't luxurious, as other reviewers have noted, but we thought it was just fine for a vacation rental.
There were some maintenance issues, which the manager took care of promptly. This unit is not managed by the Poipu Shores on-site management, but by Great Vacation Retreats, whose office is a 5 minute drive away. We visited their office and found the staff to be friendly and accommodating.
There is air conditioning in both the living room and the bedroom. That's a good thing, because there is no way to get cooling breezes through the unit from outdoors. All of the windows are on the side facing the ocean; there are no other windows, because Poipu Shores is on a steep hillside and the back of this ground-floor unit is underground.

The location of the condo was excellent in Popui area. The shared deck was lovely for breakfasts and sunsets or just hanging out and relaxing.
The condo is a good size with lots of drawer space. Unfortunately, it is dated and could use a new couch,bed and linens. The closet had 2 extra pillows but no cases. There were dark, long hairs on the floor when we arrived, which my husband cleaned up. The closet was dirty. An extra blanket had stains.
Bathroom was ok. Mats and throw rugs seemed dirty. No bath mat...made into a terry swan for the bed.
No TV in bedroom, just a small screen for a DVD. Would have been nice to settle in and snuggle and watch a show.
Construction going on in condo above this unit when we arrived in January. The manager was kind enough to speak with the condo owner
in the above unit and changed work hours from 9-4 to 10-5. She also gave us some discounted rate for the nights construction was in progress.
Overall, this condo is in a great location. The condo adjacent to this unit, a mirror image and with shared deck, was upgraded, fresh and at a similar price point. I think these owners need to invest in some upgrades. "Good Bones" but certainly worn and tired.
I would have liked a little more upscale feel for the money we spent.

My husband and I had visited Kauai three times before this stay and we prefer to stay on the south side, near Poipu Beach Park. This was our first experience staying in a condo because we brought our 8 month old baby and wanted a kitchen.
This condo fit our requirements perfectly. 1) It is a 3 minute drive to the beach park 2) It has a/C in the bedroom and living room. 3) The lanai is amazing and it's almost private (shared with only one other condo. We saw a humpback whale and watched it for 30 minutes one day and saw turtles daily 4) Close to family friendly restaurants (Kalapaki Joe's, Keoki's paradise, Roy's) 5) the pool is so close to the condo. 5) It has been nicely renovated with a modern kitchen and bathroom/shower.
The condo was clean, and the kitchen fit our needs. We bought pre-made meals at Costco (20 minutes away) and heated them at home. There is a convection oven (a fancy microwave), not a full oven, but that wasn't an issue since we weren't baking on vacation. There was a blender for smoothies and a coffee maker in the condo. There were tons of dishes, large bowls, pans, silverware. You'll need to purchase or bring items like sugar and cooking oil. There was a spice rack.The condo complex has Bbqs for resident use.
We enjoyed the service that the Great Vacation Retreats provided too. They offer many convenient items to rent from their office near the local shopping center. We rented a beach umbrella for the week ($14) and next time I'm interested in renting other items like beach toys, beach chairs, a picnic cooler, stroller.

The condo was perfect for my wife and me. It was well maintained and very comfortable. The private lanai was a great place to relax with a book, to watch the sea turtles in the cove or to enjoy sunset with a cool drink. The washer and dryer in the condo was a bonus as we travel light and have to wash clothes. The bedroom was large with plenty of closet and drawer space. It also has a tv so my wife could enjoy her shows and I could watch what I wanted on the tv in the living room. Kitchen was well equipped with everything you needed for cooking thus saving money as restaurants are fairly expensive. It's an easy walk from the condo to Poipu Beach. The only drawback was the parking was on three different levels and the parking spots were very narrow. Should we return to Kauai in the future we would be happy to stay here again.
Thank you for your review!
The parking can be a bit tricky in some of the oceanfront properties on Kauai but the location and view definitely make up for it:)
Hope to hear from you on your return visit!

"101B Poipu Shores Stay"
Left on 06/06/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 6, 2012Stayed May 2012
We found our condo extremely clean and well stocked with all kitchen supplies. Our view from our deck was very exciting as we enjoyed watching the many many sea turtles frolic in the ocean. The condo was very quiet but found that it lacked adequate lighting on the exterior. We were not impressed that the lock on the patio door didn't work and that the only protection we had was a piece of dowling that was put in place to stop intruders. We enjoyed the patio and pool and found the views along the coastline breath taking. We were close to the Tropical Botanical Gardens and the Kauaii coffee plantation.

101B had an excellent location, right on the ocean.
Pros: great newly renovated kitchen, quiet location (if you don't count the waves, air conditioning), turtles and pool outside your window, BBQ.
Cons: paint is peeling throughout the unit, sliding door in the BR didn't open at all (so no breeze/access), drapes are decaying, one window/screen was broken so we had a few bugs.
Thanks for the review - We have just put in all new Averte window coverings, paint and quite a few other updates. We really appreciate the feedback as this is the best way to make sure that we communicate with the owner on what needs to be upgraded - sorry we weren't able to complete the work prior to your arrival;)
