  • This is a privately owned unit and guests are renting directly from the homeowner. The company name is Vacation Realty Hawaii (as will appear on your credit card statement).   Therefore your reservation is non-transferable between other properties. 


  • This condominium is professionally managed by Vacation Realty Hawaii LLC (808) 822-0272.  


  • Your  on-island contact is Graeme D. Merrin, RB, ABR, GRI (808) 651-7211. graeme@graememerrin.com 


  • Amenities provided by third-party vendors (for example utility companies or subcontractors) are beyond our control.  We do our best to provide services such as cable television, internet, and resort telephones.  Should these be unavailable for part or all of your stay we will do our best to help restore services, but ultimately cannot be held responsible.  Should you absolutely require internet access we recommend you make arrangement for these services through a cell phone company.


    1. A $500 security deposit is required with this reservation and we will process a credit card authorization in that amount prior to your arrival.  This authorization will expire after your departure assuming no damages or fines are incurred.  A charge may result for damage to the condo, missing contents or for exceeding the stated number of overnight guests. If a guest arrives without notice earlier than the scheduled check in time of 3pm or fails to depart by the required 10am checkout time, their security deposit which is on hold will be charged in full.  Our units hold very busy time lines and the failure to leave on time can cost money and schedule disasters.  Likewise arriving earlier than scheduled can disrupt the busy cleaning flow, cause mishaps and confusions with the housekeeping staff.   Damage in excess of the $500.00 security deposit will additionally be charged to your credit card commensurate with such damage.  Guests are responsible for reporting any damages immediately to Graeme Merrin at (808) 651-7211 or alohacondos@vacationrealtyhawaii.com


  • The reservation deposit is nonrefundable; however if a cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to the check-in date, the full reservation deposit may be applied to a new set of reservation dates in the same condo beginning anytime up to one year from the original check-in date (subject to availability and rate). Cancellations made within 30 days of the check-in date results in loss of all payments.


  • Check-in time is 3 PM and checkout time is 10 AM.  Please be certain to plan your arrival and departure times accordingly.   We have a very tight cleaning schedule and the housekeeper will likely arrive at 10:00 to begin the clean.  Extra charges may apply if you have not departed at 10:00 as we have to compensate the housekeeper for wait-time.  If you need an early check-in or late check-out we recommend you book an extra night.



  • The regular occupancy for unit 113 is 4.  The maximum occupancy is 6.


  • We do our very best to have the units clean and in proper working order for your arrival.  Should there be any cleaning or maintenance problems please call your on-island contact at your first opportunity.  We require the opportunity to rectify any problems and will do so in a reasonable amount of time.


  • At no time should anyone sleep on sofas other than sleeper sofas that are opened up and have sheets on them.


    1. A pack-n-play and high chair are available at no extra charge, but must be requested via email to alohacondos@vacationrealtyhawaii.com at the time of booking or with reasonable notice prior to arrival.


  • Stays of more than 10 days have additional mandatory interim-cleaning.  For example if you stay for 11 nights you would have an interim and a final outclean.  If you stay for 21 nights you would have two interim cleans and one outclean.


  • Cleaning fees are based on an average hourly cost.  If the condo is left excessively messy and it can’t be made rent-ready within the cost of the cleaning fee, guests will be charged $37.50/hr for the additional cleaning.


  • Suntan lotions, after-sun lotions and related products leave bleach-like stains in fabrics.  Please be careful with our upholstery and bedspreads.  We use white towels and white sheets for this reason, but it is not practical to have white sofas and bedspreads.  Please shower before getting into bed, and please sit on a towel if you have sun products on your skin and you want to sit on the upholstery.  Wash hands thoroughly after applying sun products to avoid accidentally damaging fabrics.  Guests are responsible for damage to linens and upholstery from products they use.


  • Smoking is strictly prohibited in the condo or on the condo lanai and doing so will result in full loss of security deposit.  We have covered lanais, so the smoke gets trapped and blows into the unit.  


  • We provide sheets for each bed and two bath towels per stated guest.  There is no daily housekeeping service.


  • We also provide a reasonable amount of amenities such as toilet paper, paper towels, tissue, soaps and detergents for your use.  Should you run out, you are responsible for purchasing additional products for the duration of your stay, unless you have an interim clean at which time we will replenish those supplies.


  • Please make sure that all towels, beach equipment and remotes are left behind at the condo when you depart.  Please return the key to the lockbox. We charge replacement costs for each lost item (cost of item, travel time & accounting).  Generally items are lost because they are left in the rental car, so please check your car carefully before you leave for the airport.


  • No pets of any kind are allowed except for service animals.


  • Keep indoor furniture indoors, and outdoor furniture outdoors.  There is a $50 fee if furniture needs to be moved back to its original place upon your departure.  For example, if you move a large glass table, the management company will have to hire someone to go help the housekeeper put it back.
  • Do not leave personal property on the lanai spaces.  We are not liable for any personal items that might go missing.


  • Hurricane or Storm Policy: No refund will be given unless a "mandatory evacuation order" has been given by the National Weather Service for Princeville and the surrounding area.  In the event a mandatory evacuation order is issued we will refund unused portions of rent of a guest currently occupying the property and any advanced rents or deposits collected for a guest that is scheduled to arrive during the Hurricane Warning period.


    1. GUESTS ARE RESPONSILBLE FOR FOLLOWING THE HOUSE RULES OF PUA POA RESORT.  Violation of the rules can result in fines, and guests are responsible for paying those fines.  In severe cases if guests are permanently removed from the condo and from the grounds of Pua Poa by the homeowner, property manager, resort Management Company or the police the guest will not be refunded for rent paid for unused nights, even if the guest is prohibited from returning to the property.\


Condominium living requires each resident to have respect for the needs and rights of others.  The main purpose of these rules is to provide for the enjoyment, comfort and safety of each owner and guest, to protect all the occupants at the resort from annoyance and nuisance caused by improper use of the common elements at Pua Poa and to protect the value and desirability of Pua Poa.

This condo exceeded our expectations. It was beyond big enough for our family of four. The views and the location were amazing. A super short walk to Hideaways Beach or down to the Saint Regis for sunset cocktails. The drive to Hanalei is only a few minutes. The home was stocked with beach towels, fins, snorkels, chairs and everything you would need for the beach which was a huge bonus! We would for sure stay here again!

Nice place, but falls short of expectations

Reviewed by Bridget

Date 11/14/2018

We visited Kauai for a family wedding, and loved the island and the condo location in Princeville. Compared to the houses/condos others in the wedding party had rented, this place was run-down and crying out for refurbishment. For the price, you'd be better off renting elsewhere. The condo faces a different direction to the first 2 blocks at Puu Poa which face the bay. We knew this from the photos and expected this, but it did look as though you could walk out of the lanai and around to the pool area and view the sunset etc: you can't - there's a locked gate and vegetation preventing access to the other blocks. It's just something to be aware of.

On the plus side, the condo is very spacious, and has a wonderful view of the ocean. The kitchen/bathroom amenities were clean. A gift on arrival was a nice touch, and it was great to have the large washer/dryer to use, as well as beach towels and a pac and play.

Maybe because it's on the ground floor, and sunken into the hillside: there's a very strong damp/musty odor throughout the unit, even after airing the place out having the doors open and ceiling fans on, the smell still hits when you return. The unit was rented for the week before we arrived, so it's not like it was closed up unused for a time. The second bedroom was the worst, located at the back of condo; it was very dark and smelly and not at all like the airy room depicted in the promo shots.

There was not a day that went by without at least one sliding door falling off the tracks - the screen doors on all 3 external sliders fell off on rotation that was almost comical, as well as the closet doors in the main bedroom being stiff and derailing. All are old and worn out. Even my 2 year old opening a lanai slider managed to derail it completely, the screen fell out and nearly went over the cliff-side! It didn't make us feel secure to just use the screens locked at night (to get airflow through) when we know they are so easy to take out.

There are many other small "attention to detail" things that make the place feel unloved, as well as the fact that this place needs freshening up: at the very least a good deep clean in the interim.

- The blinds are in the kitchen and bedrooms are so old and stiff - they feel like they are about to come off the wall when you're trying to get them up or down, and the drapy cloth/curtain over the kitchen windows was just grubby.

- There's an earlier review that mentions "sorry floral arrangements" - we agree! In the bathroom these look at least a decade old and need to be thrown out. You just can't dust this stuff after years in a wet room. Also the feature birdcage in the entrance was thick with dust. Needs to be taken outside and hosed! There was a broken lampshade by the dining table (cracked and a hole in it) which hasn't been replaced.

- the sheets on the bed in the second bdrm were totally pilled and should be thrown out. They weren't nice to sleep in.

- the unit has lots of kitchen items, but some replacements haven't been made possibly after prior breakages - e.g. there's only TWO wine glasses - and they are mismatched... Otherwise on the whole it's a great kitchen to cook in.

- the valance on the bed in the master bedroom has a red stain around the edge. Yuk. This type of laundry wouldn't be covered/changed with a regular turnover clean, but I would expect it to be noticed and then removed if the owners didn't have a 2nd/replacement.

- we had a problem with cable access in the lounge (not a biggie, we weren't on holiday to watch TV and my son could watch cartoons in the bedroom).

And no, we didn't notify the property manager of the above as it was absolutely nothing critical to our stay - and lets be honest no one wants to waste their vacation making appointments to point out details that should get picked up in a regular property inspection or with a turnover clean.

This condo would rate well as a 3* accommodation, if it had a price to reflect this. It is a nice place to stay with lovely views. But if you're after a luxury rental, this falls well short.

This was our first trip to the Hawaiian islands and wow what a place, the location was ideal for us as we wanted to spend time on the north shore amongst the tropical vegetation. the accommodation has everything you need, is very spacious and is a great location. there is a nice small mall/ shopping area just 2min drive and Hanalei bay food and shops are just 10 min drive. we loved the north shore area is it has a more surf small town feel, the beach's are fantastic lots of snorkeling and we see turtles almost everyday at hideaway beach.I would definitely recommend this rental as it is large for a two bedroom.



Reviewed by Lauren

Date 05/13/2018

We absolutely loved this place! The view is spectacular! Better than the pictures. We loved being able to see and hear the ocean. The condo was spotless when we arrived and well stocked with towels, kitchen items, beach gear (chairs, boogie boards, etc). There were even tennis rackets to use for the tennis court. They provided a pack n play and high chair which was very useful for our baby. We went in early May and found that having the windows open and the ceiling fans on, cooled the place down perfectly. The beds were really comfortable as well as the sofa. I did not notice any bad smells as mentioned by another review. I guess maybe if someone isn't used to humidity?? It takes longer for things to air dry so if you don't hang towels or swim things up adequately, you might get a musty smell from that. Having a washer and dryer in the condo was very useful. The St. Regis Resort beach is literally next door and we walked there with 4 kids, no problem. It was easy to access and a very nice beach with calm water. Hideaways Beach was harder to access but gorgeous. My 9 year old and 7 year old did okay but the younger kids could not make it. The red mud in Kauai (which is on the trail to Hideaways) is really messy and slippery so make sure you have shoes that you can get muddy/stained and have good traction. I miss this place already.

We had a wonderful time during our spring break in Kauai during the middle of March, 2018. The condo is clean, spacious, has everything you need to cook meals and convenient to everything to do on the North side of the island. The view is simply spectacular. We loved waking up to the beautiful ocean every day. Princeville town center is a short drive where you can shop, have ice cream or shave ice, get some groceries and eat in a restaurant or get take out. We loved having a washer and dryer in the unit. We highly recommend this property. You can hit several beaches every day and still not have enough time to see them all. Thank you!

We had an amazing time at your place! True paradise! Your place was very comfortable,great decor and perfect for the five of us. We were worried about the day bed but it worked out very well with great view ! Great amenities and good amount of beach items. Although beaches were turbulent and unable to access many of them. Next door to St Regis which had a lot of night activity and music along with day activities. Hint is to use their elevator to go down the 9 levels to the beach. They do not mind....The local Princeville Village is very close and has everything A lot of walkability, very safe and very quiet . Condo very quiet ..Yes it does smell slightly musty but due to being on the bottom floor most likely and certainly not a problem. No problems with circulation, air and breeze always there. Thanks for sharing your place with us and would certainly return. !

Reviewed by Jennifer

Condo location is ideal. The st Regis is .1 mile away so you can easily walk to the beautiful sunsets and hideaway pizza is close. Some condos face the sunset, this one does not but has a pretty view of Queens bath and shore. Beds are great quality. Sufficiently stocked with beach needs but not overly. Living room and kitchen are really spacious. Master bedroom has screen door for great trade winds and ocean sound. Reserved to 4 stars because the closest were not easily accessible to do stubborn sliding doors. Another strange thing, there are no left over products from other guests. Usually there are soaps, shampoos, sunscreen, etc. Its not a big deal but helps one plan. Pool is warmer than most with pretty view. I’d stay again but I’d try for a room the faces the sunset first.

Nice condo

Reviewed by Carolyn

A friend and I stayed in this condo in Oct., not a warm beach month for the north side of Kauai, but we had a car and saw the island end to end! This condo has a magnificent view. This view alone was worth the stay. We found the complex easily with the directions. The doors are tricky to open, but we had it down by the time we left. There were instructions and keys laid out neatly on the counter. We counted the towels and there were a couple missing ( some of which we found later), but I called the number of our contact and he was cool about it. There were some nice touches: coffee filters were greatly appreciated, as was the wine opener. The kitchen sink had a wrapped sponge left ready for our stay, which I thought was a very sanitary touch. There was a wrapped soap in each bathroom, also a nice touch! Hand soap, bathroom tissue, plenty of hangars in the closets, beach chairs, and boogie boards were all also appreciated. The snorkeling equipment was filthy and looked like it needed bleach sanitizing, so we skipped that and rented equipment. There are some sorry looking artificial floral arrangements around which have seen a better day. These were trivial things. The biggest con of this condo--the real meat-and-potatoes issue-- is that there is no air conditioning, and thus, in such a humid environment, the musty odor is difficult to prevent. There were plenty of fans around, both ceiling and table fans, which did help. But I think this odor without AC is kind of unavoidable. It seemed to get better as we stayed there, though my friend suggested maybe we were just getting used to it. But it was not as overwhelming after we opened the doors and let some air circulate. Again, we were there in October, not the biggest heat/ humidity time of year either.That said, it's a nice condo, in a beautiful area.There is a cool Hideaway beach to hike down to adjacent to the condo property. The St. Regis Princeville hotel is walking distance to the condo, and there is live music in their bar/lounge. Bottom line, we enjoyed our stay and it was a comfortable place for us with all the fans, but if you have to have air conditioning, look elsewhere.

Manager Response


Thank you so much for taking the time to send in a review upon our request.  We are glad you found the unit pleasing in many ways.

The unit is as advertized without air conditioning and there are quite a few places in Kauai that don't have air conditioning.  The location of this unit does help being located right on the bluff as the trade winds are great.  There are usually only a couple times throughout the year that they do not blow.  The unit itself is partially subterranean and with the dampness of island living, you will get some of the associated tropical smells.  As you mentioned opening things up and getting the air flowing is helpful and usually the unit is closed up just before your arrival. 

We do supply and guarantee the boogie boards, the beach chairs, the beach cooler and the beach towels.  However the snorket gear is not an amenity for this unit.  Although if the owner or other guests have left some equipment there, guests are free to use it if they so choose but it is not upkept by us.  Suppling snorket gear is difficult with different sizes and multiple parts which just cannot accommodate a variety of guests.

We are so glad you enjoyed the unit and hope you can return!

Great Place in Princeville / Hanalei Area

What a great place. It was right on the coast. Great sunsets. Our back patio was 10 feet from the edge of the bluff that overlooks Hideaways Beach, accessible via the steep trail on the west side of the tennis court. And Puu Poa Beach at the St Regis resort was accessible via a paved walkway near the St Regis guard station. Both beaches have decent snorkeling. The condo was roomy and has a nice size covered lanai. Everything worked well including the washer and dryer. The master bedroom has a slider window door out to the lanai, and the master bath has dual showers. The other bedroom was roomy with a full sized bed. The kitchen is big with a large island a long bar, perfect for dining in. I would definitely recommend this to my friends. There is stair access only.

This Condo was simply stunning, Puu Pao 113 exceeded my expectations which were high. The view of the ocean is unlike anywhere else I've been. Sadly the room was booked for the last 3 nights of my stay so I had to get another room which in comparison was a sham. Only thing I wish Puu Pao had was a Air Conditioner, but that may be too picky as most rooms in HI don't have them.

Mahalo for the review for unit 113 at Puu Poa.  We are happy to hear the unit exceeded your expectations.  It is a very spacious unit and the views are over the top.  The outdoor lanai also is a good space to enjoy the views.

The unit is not air conditioned but being so close to the ocean does help when the trade winds are blowing which is most of the time.

We hope you can come back and enjoy the unit again soon!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. This condo has everything you need and more.

the view is incredible. a 20 ' wall of glass with nothing but ocean. it continues on the lanai & from the bedroom.the beds were comfortable & the unit was just as pictured on line.kristen was very helpful & responded promptly to my questions.a note for anyone who has mobility issues; because of the way this building is built into the cliff overlooking the ocean, you actually enter on an upper floor & have to walk down stairs. I counted 32 stairs to get to unit 113.but, oh, what a view !

If you only have one chance to visit Kauai, this should be where you stay! Located in Princeville, this well-kept 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is beautifully furnished with Polynesian decor, our bed even had a grass bedskirt! Perfect for 2 couples or a family. Sleeps 6. We slept with the screens open each night and really enjoyed the views and ocean air. Everything was in working order, but I never could figure out how to turn on the outside light, but that probably helped keep the bugs away...Worth every penny.

Aloha!I don't usually write reviews, but I have to make an exception for this hidden gem. Where do I begin? Let's start with how beautiful this condo is and the view of the ocean was soo breathtaking, it was alot to take in. The moment I step foot in the condo I felt like I was in paradise! The condo was so spacious. The kitchen is soo big! you really have to see it for yourself, the pictures doesn't do it justice. The condo provide you with all kitchen amenities down to a rice cooker..lol. Everything you need the condos has provided. Let's just say the home owners really thought of everything and really wants you to have an amazing stay! And they succeeded! Only bad thing is there's no AC so we left the door open throughout our stay and got bitten by mosquito like crazy. But it was still worth it lol. Over all I give this condo a 5 star! And I'm already planning my next trip back here.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Puu Poa 113.  The view is amazing and unbelievable beauty!  We do try to equip the units with all the conveniences to make the guests feel at home.  

This unit does not have AC but because it is right on the bluff of the ocean, it does allow for nice ocean breezes and the fans throughout are also very helpful.  Possible when opening the doors, having the screen shut would have still allowing the air flow and keep the mosquito down.  

The island does have mosquitos and they are really small and hard to see.  Please note that they are most prevalent at dusk so keeping the screen shut at those time is helpful.  We also have found out that the mosquitos are very particular with who they choose to bite.  Some people to not get any bites while others do.  Repellents are available at the stores and green options as well.

We hope you will come again soon!

Thanks for the great stay! We are a family of six and had more than enough room. The view was absolutely amazing, beds were comfy and the kitchen was well stocked. We went to the Smith Family Luau in Lihue...great food, beautiful gardens! Great snorkeling at Tunnels Beach on the north side...parking nightmare so arrive early! If you are good at climbing rocks, I recommend climbing down to Turtle Cove. Awesome place and you will definitely see turtles. Rented kayaks in Hanalei...fun activity. Beautiful beaches wherever you go...can't go wrong! Worth the trip to hike in Waimea Canyon...beautiful views! Great breakfast place with island vibes was Kountry Kitchen in Kaapa. Can't miss it, right on main highway and awesome food! Good burgers at Bubbas Burgers...many locations around the island. I'm sure most know but food/groceries are very expensive. A few negatives I will point out only because they are things I would want to know to plan. The location is great if you plan on doing a lot of activities on the north side. The main highway you have to take around the island is AWFUL with traffic. We seemed to spend too much time in the car going back and forth to other parts of the island. If you plan on doing mountain tubing, zip lining, or some of the snorkeling excursions, book early. They were all filled up a few weeks prior to our arrival. Although we would definitely stay in this unit again, we did have a few negatives to point out. Super HOT!! We were there during a hot week and with no A/C and no ocean breezes, we had some miserable nights sleeping. The owner has 3 small fans that didn't do the trick for 6 of us. Especially the kids who slept on the trundle bed...no ceiling fan out there. I would suggest to the owner to invest in pedestal fans for every room. Some of the sliding doors and windows were hard to open and wouldn't stay on track. Bit of a mold issue in the master bathroom. I read in other reviews about the musty smell in the unit. It did smell like an old lake house at times but we brought some glade plug ins with us and it didn't bother us too much. This unit is on the first floor and the first day it rained and there were a handful of little lizard/salamanders crawling on the walls of living room. We caught them and threw them outside. I think we only saw them because of the rain and being on the ground level.....understandable for the area. All in all we had a pleasant stay and the positives outweighed any of the negatives! Thank you!

Thank you so much for your extensive and very detailed review.  It sounds like you did enjoy your island vacation  and we are glad you made us a part of that. 

We are sorry that you did hit a hot spell.  However it is not very often that the trade winds are not blowing helping to cool this unit.  The ceiling fans in the bedrooms do help and there should have been a floor fan or two.  We will check on those for assurance.  

We have gone through the condo with careful and extensive care to make sure any smells are not of concern. The tropical island and the rain does at time bring a tropical smell as well as the seagrass furniture.

We have also many times had the slider doors serviced. Our housecleaner do clean any mold with each clean and on a regular basis.  However living on an island, the mold is a continuing maintenance item.

the views in this condo are second to none and absolutely amazing!  

We are glad your stay was pleasant!

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at Puu Poa 113! We had five people and the condo felt spacious enough for us all. It was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is huge and has everything you could need. We loved opening all of the sliding glass doors and hearing the ocean, especially nice in the master bedroom. The location is right next door to the St. Regis and the beach is easy to access by using the outside pathway or taking the elevator inside (I'm sure they prefer only guests using the elevator but no one seemed to mind). Hideaways beach is accessed by a narrow pathway at the far end of the tennis courts. We went there several times and loved that beach for snorkeling and swimming. The path is slippery and steep but at least there are ropes to hold onto most of the way. The only drawback to this condo is the lack of air flow to the back bedroom. The ceiling fan is noisy on high speed and inadequate. We found 3 small fans that we ended up using in that room to make it tolerable for sleeping. The owners should consider putting a small air conditioner in that room. Otherwise, we found our stay very enjoyable and the management company extremely accommodating.

This was a very nice condo and the setting was perfect. I would highly recommend it but did have a couple of small issues. There was a shortage of sheets and blankets for the extra bed, only heavy comforters and it was very warm. Also some of the windows and doors were difficult to open and the air flow was necessary because there is no air conditioning. The management company was very responsive and brought us sheets and a new coffee pot when the one there broke.

Thanks for your review.  This condos is great and the views could not be better.  Just Amazing!  Thanks for noting that we did respond right away when called about the sheets for the trundle bed.  We do want to keep our guests happy and try very hard to accommodate.  Applicances of course are unpredicatable but we again are glad you called right away so we could take care of coffee maker.  We have had the doors and windows serviced as well as the screens.  Since the property is right on the bluff of the ocean the ocean breezes quite often are a great source of cooling but there are time when the trade winds do not blow but that is not too often.  The fans thoughout the property are helpful too.  Thank you for your high recommendations and please come again soon.

Thanks for posting a review for us for unit 113 at Puu Poa.  The condos is very spacious and accommodating and well the views are the best there can be!  We did look into the smell that you had noted in the second bedroom and could not find a source.  After your departure, we did take apart that bedroom from top to bottom and did a deep clean, even taking the bed apart, however we did not find anything.  This room is subtranian so we will try to keep the window open when possible for ventilation.

Amazing property, amazing location, stunning views. We were on our honeymoon and couldnt believe how beautiful this place is, the pictures dont do it justice for the size of the unit. A short walk either down the path or over by the St Regis and you are on a stunning beach. We slept with our slider open to hear the ocean . Owners and Team placed a new washer/dryer unit in the condo while we were there. We were out that day and it was seem less. You wouldnt even know they were there. A nice welcoming gift was on the table when we arrived. I would definately stay on this property again if we return to Kuaui. Thank you for everything.

This place absolutely blew my mind. It was so BIG and spacious and the location is amazing. Has absolutely everything you need- well equipped kitchen, huge comfy beds, heaps of towels and bedding, snorkles etc. Great value for money.

I was there with my boyfriend and we could have fit another 4 people in there. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw the view! We ate breakfast in the morning looking over the water and spotted turtles from the dining area! Make sure you head down the little dirt path to the beach below. Amazing little beach and not many people on it! Paradise.

The 'condo' (felt more like a house) is in a really quiet area but it's very handy being next to the St Regis resort. It's about 100m next door to some great bars and restaurants.

Thanks for having us, the accommodation made our visit to Kauai really special and comfortable and I can't wait to head back there ASAP.

This place was absolutely perfect. We arrived late in the evening so we didn't get the full experience until we awoke the next morning to the sound of the crashing waves and beautiful blue sea. The location is amazing being so close to the ocean. You are literally steps from the cliff down to the ocean. We could open the sliding doors and have the cool tradewinds blow through as we ate our breakfast. We watched the whales and dolphins playing every day. The location of the condo allows for total privacy. The condo has everything you could need--and top quality. It has everything from cable TV, wireless internet, washer and dryer, all kitchen necessities, ceiling fans in every room, beach chairs (Tommy Bahama), sun umbrella, cooler, and on and on. I can't rave enough about this place. There were only two of us but it could easily accommodate 6 with the second bedroom and daybed in the living area. We hope to stay here again.
