We stayed in a unit close to the water, literally waves crashing below us and a great view. Whales came by every day, turtles were swimming below, the sunsets were beautiful. BUT, our room was literally crumbling. The rust on our doors and windows was bad, but the rust on the outlets was so bad you could barely plug things... More

Mahalo for taking the time to write a review. We reviewed your comments and all issues are being seriously addressed. In the future wherever you stay, please inform the management company about any pest so they can service the unit to resolve the issue. Being in the tropics we get unwanted pest but they can usually be controlled. More

We stayed in 203B, the only 2 bedroom unit where BOTH the bedrooms are on the ocean side, which was WONDERFUL! The 2 bedrooms and small front room all opened up to the huge lanai. It had one nicely sized bathroom in the unit (NO bathroom counter though...if you like to store stuff on the counter, it wont happen here)... More

Mahalo for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay here at Poipu Shores. The actual unit you stayed in was 202B, not 203B.

We stayed at Poipu Shores recently. STayed in both 405A and 101A. Would not recommend 101A, as the sun hits the little lanai early in the morning and makes it too hot to sit on. 405A was terrific, as the sun doesn't hit the lanai til much later (due to a dividing wall between it and the property to the...

Aloha. We appreciate your comments and are glad you were able to experience two different units on the property. Each has its benefits and issues. Many people enjoy the ground floor units with access to the lawn for their family. Thank you again for choosing Poipu Shores as your vacation destination. More

Stayed 7 nights in 202B. In my opinion, it was the best condo in this complex. Right on the ocean (Crashing waves are loud). Entrance is on same level as parking. It has a triple lanai which opens from both bedrooms and living room. Used the beautiful pool, lots, and the barbecue. The furnishings and kitchen were well done. They... More

This unit like the others in this group is right on the water with the waves breaking so close that spray would occasionally hit the lanai. The unit had been upgraded and was clean and well stocked. We were two couples and drew the "second" bedroom. Kauai was having a heat wave and this room was unbearable even with the... More

Mahalo for taking the time to write a review and for your comments. You are correct that we have no AC in the units. and normally with the ceiling fans and trade winds it is enough to keep a unit cool. Unfortunately unusual weather patterns can change all that. We hope you enjoyed Kauai and visit paradise again. More

Stayed in unit 201B. 2 bedroom. Nicely updated. Small, but well equipped and clean. View right over the ocean with the waves crashing all day long. Nice that it has beach chairs, towels and cooler. Short walk to Poipu beach which was amazing! Unit has no A/C which made it a bit warm at night despite the breeze. The property... More

The view is amazing, and essentially the highlight of the property. The location is on a cliff right over the crashing waves which is majestic. Watching the sea turtles was wonderful. The location is not by the swimming beach, but it is an easy walk to it. It is a good location if you want to stay in Poipu. Our... More
