Paradise is Puu Poa 309 — The best location on the North Shore!

My husband and I stayed at Puu Poa 309 for six nights and we were thrilled with....EVERYTHING! The online photos are beautiful, but they don't do this property justice. The condo is spacious, comfortable (the king bed is to die for!), impeccably clean, and very well-appointed. The facility offers travelers everything from a well-equipped kitchen, extra fans, hair dryers, a washer & dryer, and iron/ironing board, to an iPod docking station, beach chairs, coolers, inflatable pool toys, and more. The views of the turquoise waters, surrounding gardens, bluffs and mountains from the master bedroom and lanais were picture perfect, and we enjoyed the spectacular scenery from sunrise to sunset, including a few rainbows along the way. The condo complex is located on quiet, pristine properties, with beaches, shopping, amenities, golf and other activities nearby. If you want to stay close to home, the beautiful Hideaways Beach -- great for swimming, snorkeling, or sunbathing -- is tucked away at the edge of the property, and the not-to-be-missed Queen's Bath is a short drive away. (My husband had the awesome experience of swimming next to a sea turtle here!) You can walk to the St. Regis for dinner, drinks or amazing sushi on their breathtaking terrace, or head up the highway to Hanalei to check out even more beaches, experience a bit more nightlife, or to watch the sunset on the bay. Other sites down the coast or to the south can be reached in an hour's drive or less...but staying on the lush North Shore can't be beat. From the time we booked our stay and throughout our visit, the owner, Tarek, was very attentive and took exceptional care of us. He promptly responded to emails and took extra steps to ensure that our vacation was as perfect as we'd dreamed. He was a pleasure to meet, and his commitment to caring for his properties and guests is evident is all of his actions! Whether you're looking for a quiet place to escape and relax, or a place to touch down at in between go-go-go activities, this condo is the place for you! We can't wait to come back!
