I'm sure all the other reviews lead with the great view from the lanai, but there is a reason for that. It's absolutely breathtaking in an unambiguously good way. We were able to see dolphins and turtles from our own home. The attached picture is from the living room window! The unit was decently furnished and spacious. No air conditioning, but the fans are good enough for all but the warmest nights. The facility feels like you are climbing through a tree house. There are a lot of ups and downs of small flights of stairs but that configuration adds to the privacy. There is a plunge pool that is unimpressive and is in the front of the property, with no ocean views. Poipu Beach Park is in walking distance and it's one of the nicer beaches on Kauai. In the other direction, there is a great walking path that follows the oceans and winds toward the Hyatt, which has some magnificent public grounds.
