We have been to Poipu many times, and you can not find a better location than Poipu Shores. Yes, the furnishings in our condo were not five stars, maybe three stars. The kitchen dishwasher conflicts with the stove, and you need to put down the door to the stove to be able to open the dishwasher wide enough to take dishes in and out. This issue might be fixed with a stove that had a latch rather than a big handle. However, the kitchen was otherwise well equipped. Our cook gave the barbecues five stars for being kept "immaculate" on a daily basis. On our second day of a ten day stay, New Year's Eve, our refrigerator quit with lots of food and beverages from Costco inside. Management responded within an hour and let us move our food to a fridge in a nearby empty unit, and then replaced the fridge with a used working one when we were at the beach. We found if you had a need and communicated it to housekeeping or management, they did their best to accommodate. For a small but welcomed update, we suggest that lamps associated with a switched outlet be added to the bedrooms, and the lamp in the living room be replaced. Also, batteries should be replaced in the smoke detectors.
What makes this condo so very special is its view and location, and we find it value for our dollar. We vacationed in early January, and we watched wonderful sunsets and Humpback whales spout, breach and flap their tails on a daily basis from our lanai. Green seat turtles can also be seen everyday from the lanai. A family can walk toddlers or stroll baby carriers to the nearby Poipu Beach, and you can walk to nearby restaurants. Management is friendly and accommodating, a must for a great vacation, which we had at Poipu Shores.
