4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

We spent 16 lovely days on Kauai at the Poipu Crater Resort, with Villa #27 being our home away from home. Firstly, we think there must be something wrong with anybody who has a bad time on Kauai. We had the best time! There is so much to see and do and the weather is never bad - even when... More

We gave this two stars because the complex is decent, but this unit was a big "yuck". The furniture, the carpet, the appliances are old and need to be replaced. The refrigerator is all rusty. I think the washer and dryer are newer. The place is not inviting or comfortable at all. Now for the good stuff; it has beach... More

We stayed in this unit to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The owners were very nice and accommodating. AND, based on my research at the time, this unit was being rented out for much more affordable than the other rental units in this same complex. Everything was well equipped with plenty of towels and... More

Number 14 is immaculate - so clean and tastefully furnished. The stove and sink looked brand new to me. This condo has everything and then some more. Even golf clubs - how thoughtful. The beach is a 10 minute walk away. The shops a short drive have everything you need. Plenty of restaurants walking distance. A nice early morning walk... More

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in May 2012. We love staying in a condo, where we can get up, make a nice cup of coffee and breakfast at a leisurely pace before heading out for the day. The kitchen has been updated in this condo and was beautiful, with everything... More

This was our second stay at Poipu Crater #20 and it certainly won’t be our last. If I detailed everything we like about this vacation rental and its location it would probably be the longest TA review ever written. Briefly—and that’s hard to do—PC20 is beautiful, comfortable, and well-appointed. The surrounding grounds and greenery exude Hawaiian. And, c’mon, it’s in... More

We have leased villa 27 through Parrish properties. The online booking process was easy, Emails answered quickly, PayPal available to make payment. Very reasonable rate of $165/night. We booked the place anticipating a short drive to everything, so no surprises there. It is not a brand new property, but it is well maintained and clean. Beds are comfortable, would benefit... More

We went to Kauai to celebrate my birthday and our 25th anniversary. This resort seemed like a great place for us to stay since I wanted to be close to the beach but not hear the pounding surf. It was definitely peaceful and quiet except for the early morning when the birds went into full song. I especially liked the... More

My husband, brother-in-law and I stayed in unit #23. This unit needs some serious refreshing. The fan in the living room sparked and stopped working on the first day. There are bars preventing you form opening the living room vented windows. Carpets need cleaning, kitchen and master bath need updating bad. This unit gets direct sun exposure all day, and... More

We loved our stay here. At first I thought it might be too big for just my husband and myself but we loved being able to spread out and have plenty of space if one of us was up earlier than the other. We were in unit #6 and although the decor was somewhat dated, it was very clean and... More
