Excellent location and amenities for a great price

We had a really fabulous stay in this condo. The effusive description by the owner is no exaggeration. There are a lot of vacation rentals in Poipu but many are either far from the ocean or they have a road or crowds of people between you and the sea. This property could not be better located and this particular condo is among the nicest in the complex. The unobstructed view is priceless. You could just sit on the lanai or beside the pool all day and watch the turtles, humpback whales and waves. But the condo is well located to easily access world class beaches nearby, the Waimea canyon, waterfalls etc., etc. We also appreciated how attentive and helpful Tarek, the owner, was at the time of our initial enquiry and during our stay. He was always very responsive and flexible and we felt this personal attention made for a better experience than you could expect from a resort chain. p.s. We actually split our time on Kauai between Poipu Shores and an equally wonderful vacation apartment on Kauai's north shore (http://www.vrbo.com/211642). Check that one out too. It also is right on the ocean, you can hear the waves and there is a beautiful beach that you can walk to in minutes. It is also a larger space and higher up with awesome views of the Na Pali coast. Amazing surfing and snorkeling nearby.Stayed March 2011 Submitted March 31, 2011Recommended for: Age 55+, Sightseeing, Families with teenagers, Families with young children, Romantic getaway
