In general, I think the Puu Poa property is the best on Kauai. You are perched up on one of nicest overlooks of the island, easy access to a perfectly placed pool, and a short walk to a gem of a beach. The St. Regis action is just a short walk away. I have stayed at the Puu Poa twice and had totally different experiences. My first time was the result of a cold call to a local rental agency. The unit I selected was nice, but it was angled away from the awesome Bali Hai view. In addition, the person helping me was not very responsive and treated me like I was interrupting her day. My second experience introduced me to Tarek and his fantastic rental. The unit was super clean and totally ready for us. It also had all of the little extras that can make your days so much easier (beach towels, chairs, and coolers). The best part of the unit was the Bali Hai view. I can’t tell you how much more that view adds to the quality of your overall stay. There were so many times I found myself sitting out on the lanai with a beverage (hot or cold) and looking out toward that fantastic view. The previous postings are not exaggerating about Tarek’s friendliness and his quick response to any question you may have. From the initial inquiry about the rental -to securing the rental - to the final return of the deposit, Tarek was always there ready to help with the warm spirit of aloha. I was once a bit overwhelmed selecting one of the many great units at Puu Poa. I am so happy I found this particular unit. I am already trying to figure out when I can call Tarek up and reserve again. We will be back.
