“A Fantastic Place”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We booked through Suite Paradise and were in the first unit of condos above Brennecke's Beach. Lovely pool and BBQ next door, fantastic view of the grounds and beach. We have been to Hawaii many times over the years, and this was one of the best experiences so far. A++++

Our travel agent booked us in to this resort based on her experience in staying at this property. This was our first visit to Kauai as our usual destination is Kihei, Maui. The booking was made through Suite-Paradise. Our booking was for a deluxe ocean view one bedroom/bath unit and "run of the house rate", i.e. unit assigned at check-in. The check-in process was straight forward with a welcome mai tai. We were assigned Manulaoha 305. When we walked into the unit we were quite surprised to see that we were assigned a two bedroom, two and half bath, two level unit with two lanais. The unit was quite warm which I anticipated due to it being locked up or not being used recently. Our timing for weather was unfortunate as the first three days we were under a flash flood alert. We soon discovered that the following services were not functioning properly, i.e. telephone, cabled internet, and cable television. I called maintenance and they were around the next day to repair even though the telephone service continued to be intermittent our entire stay. The third day we encountered an ant infestation on the kitchen counter areas and bedroom night stand. Maintenance was called once again and came to our rescue with chemical warfare. I must say the unit was nicely furnished on all levels. Now for the most disappointing features, i.e. the daytime/ afternoon/early evening temperatures in the unit were around 90F with the evening nighttime temperatures dropping to 82F. With three ceiling fans and two portable fans, and windows open we could not reduce the temperature to a comfortable level. The sun shines on the unit all day and the vertical blinds did little to block the sun or keep the heat out. During our stay the humidity in Kauai was very high. The outside day time temperature reached 84F but was 90F inside. In addition, this unit borders on to the local neighborhood which just so happens to have a noisy neighbor directly below. During our stay there was fence construction and tree removal (chainsaw) taking place throughout the day along with a dog barking most days and seemed to be in distress. Due to the heat and noise we decided to relocate for a few days while maintaining the condo. I raised our concerns to the front desk person and informed them we would have to relocate for a few days. I asked if they were concerned and the person I spoke to said she was not. Shortly after my reservation was made I contacted Suite Paradise and asked if they had any air conditioned units and was told that such was not available or necessary as the Trade winds cool down the units, I wouldn't call temps. of 80 to 90F cool. To top things off, I later found out there are units with air conditioning so was somewhat misinformed. The grounds at Poipu Kai resort were well maintained. About a three to four hundred meter walk to the beach depending on which unit. The pools were well maintained. In conclusion, this was our personal experience at the date and time that we were staying in the unit. Better sunblock curtains would have helped. The weather conditions including lack of wind and high humidity could have influenced the indoor temperatures.

Room Tip: Avoid a corner south facing unit. Such gives the best view but also comes full day sun/heat. If yo...

My husband and I stayed in the Kahala units at the Poipu Kai this November. The units are very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Can't beat the location in Poipu. The prices through Suite Paradise can't be beaten.
We had an unfortunate issue of domestic violence in the condo above us, shortly after we had arrived. It was upsetting to us and we decided we did not want stay in that particular unit. Suite Paradise moved us into another unit the next morning ( 213), even better than the one we were in. No charges for cleaning, no questions asked ( security had been involved so they knew the situation). The front desk staff is cheerful and helpful, very nice to deal with. This is a well managed company and I would never book a condo privately, when I can deal with such a professional group.
We have already booked through Suite Pardise for next Christmas!

10th trip to Hawaii and this was our first time in a condo. We loved it!! Condo was spacious with two lanais and an updated kitchen. Less than 5 minutes walk to great boogie boarding at Brennekes and awesome snorkeling at Poipu Beach park. We rented through Suite Paradise and they were so easy to deal with...professional, friendly, and always quick to respond. We are already planning a return trip for next year!!!!

Stayed in this condo - Kahala 624 (owned / rented by Suite Paradise) - and had an amazing time. Reasonably priced - especially for the view and convenience it affords. Perfect sunset viewing on the lanai - perfectly embellished with a margarita in hand. Two spectacular beaches - each beach is less than a ten minute, down-hill stroll from the condo. Poipu, unlike the rest of the island (esp. the East, N.E., and North), is nearly always sunny. I've generally visited in the fall, and if it rains, it's usually a quick sprinkle. The area is relaxed, and not as busy as the other islands - or the East, N.E., and North of Kauai. In sum, in my opinion, the ideal spot on earth to relax, recover and rejuvenate. Renting from Suite Paradise is the way to go!

Room Tip: Use Suite Paradise's website and look at the photos; photos usually show view from lanai!

We have stayed at the Poipu Kai resort many times. The condos are always clean and well kept. The kitchens are stocked with everything needed to cook meals. There are extra towels, sheets, and blankets in the units. Its truly a home away from home. The beach is a short walk thru the beautifully manicured grounds. Sunsets are breathtaking. We will be back!

Girls trip to Kauai and we stayed in Manualoha 505. The 2-bedroom 2-bath condo was very spacious with beautiful ocean views. Short walk to the beach and shorter walk to the pool. Great location and really a great value. This particular unit is stocked with several beach chairs, so no need to take Suite Paradise up on their rental offer, although we did rent (and use!) a beach umbrella. Enjoy your stay!
