These condos are in a perfect location. The condo is setup good and well appointed especially the kitchen. There is also a nice grill on the lanai and the grocery is only a short drive away (could be walked if desired) to stock up for the week. If you like ocean views and a nice path for running or biking... More

We began our Hawaiian vacation staying at this place and it was wonderful. Being a first time visitor to Hawaii and having flown and driven (rental car) for a long stretch, we were at first taken aback by the lack of air conditioning. The unit had been shut up and it was a fairly hot day so it kind of... More

We had the great pleasure to stay at Pu'u Poa 207. The team at Oceanfront Realty couldn't have been more professional and accommodating with our last-minute stay. We had the pleasure to stay at Villa 207 a Pu'u Poa. The villa is spacious and airy. It's situated on top of a bluff overlooking Hanalei and Bali Hai. It's just stunning.... More

We stayed in Puu Poa 112 for one week in April and we were not disappointed with our incredible views! As an end unit, it not only boasts the views of Bali Hai directly in front but also some amazing ocean views from the kitchen and dining area. Overall the condo was very comfortable albeit a little dated and as... More

Our stay was amazing! Puu Poa 412 is a beautifully furnished condo with a truly spectacular 180 degree view. The condo is extremely large and easily accommodated two couples. Everything we needed was provided including a huge 3D TV, extensive DVD library, DVR, and great sound system. The kitchen had a new dishwasher (extremely quiet!) and new microwave. On Kauai,... More

Booked Pu'u Poa 312 through Kelly of Oceanfront Realty. She was so helpful and guided our family of four to the perfect condo in Princeville. What a beautiful condo and the views were incredible. Beautiful kitchen with killer view of Hideaway Beach as well as the famous "Bali Hai" view. The ocean sounds lulled us to sleep and magnificent views... More

We had a very enjoyable week in unit 210 , great views, well stocked and tastefully furnished. Do be aware the owners are justifiably proud of their furnishing resulting in several laminated warnings about the rugs and tubs. Its a place to relax, just no red wine in the living room.

We inquired about Puu Poa 412 and received an extremely rude and angry call from the owner. I understand someone being proud of their property, but when they were asked if the price was negotiable, the owner called became irate and told us we could not rent their place. He was actually yelling! I hope this person gets some anger... More

My wife and I loved Puu Poa (stayed in suite #209) - the views are breath taking, the location is perfect for Golf, Sun & Sand, Hiking, Sight Seeing, and just Relaxing. The suite we stayed in was clean, well appointed, spacious and the owner was pleasant to work with. Our favorite aspect of this suite was that you could... More

Super location and views. Excellent owners. Clean. Very tastefully decorated. 8 days of whales. You know how you get your hopes up on a place based upon pictures, etc? Only to be disappointed when you arrive? NO disappointments here at all! What you see is what you get. HIghly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dramatic ocean views and an upscale interiors awaits you at this beautifully oceanfront property! Located in beautiful Princeville, Kauai, minutes away from the world renowned Princeville Golf Course and 10 min. from Hanalei Bay, recently rated the best beach in the US. The complex sits next to the world famous Princeville Hotel – a great place to have an appetizer and watch the beautiful Kauai sunsets set to reopen in October 2009 after going thru an extensive remodel to become an exclusive St. Regis resort. You can walk to two beaches from the property. Pu’u Poa Beach is a 3 minute walk from the condo just below the Princeville Hotel. Hideaways Beach is a short hike down a trail below the condo and has great snorkeling, kayaking and diving – the hike is not for the timid. An oceanfront swimming pool is also on site of the Pu’u Poa complex as well as a tennis court. The expansive floor to ceiling views create just the right atmosphere for whale watching from December thru April. ... more   less
