    Being on the ocean is amazing, but is it as amazing as having a one of a kind condo in a secluded crater? It has many of the same amenities as a $1000/night nearby resort does, for a much better price, bigger lanai, better kitchen, better decor, and a much more private and unique Kauai experience. If you want something quiet, private and low key this is the place. We are a 10 minute walk to world famous beaches like Brenneckes, Shipwrecks, and Poipu Beach Park. When you leave those world class beaches you come home to an updated, uniquely decorated designer Polynesian style villa with a swimming pool, tennis court, club house with communal BBQ's, and putting green. Unlike other resorts it is so secluded most of the time you feel like you are the only one in the crater. This house is newly listed and has no reviews, but you can see my reviews that I have received at my other properties I have for rent on VRBO at Vrbo.com/1028506 and Vrbo.com/1629288 for reference. They are 4.9 and 5.

    The Poipu Crater:
    This is a 7.6 acre private community of 15 private Polynesian style duplex condos with a swimming pool, club house, tennis court, putting green and ping pong table. The condo has one shared wall, but nobody above or below you. Each duplex has lush tropical gardens separating them with lanais that were designed to provide privacy from the other units. With the distance between the units and the size of the crater, most of the time you feel like it is just you and the birds. It's very secluded. Rarely will you have to share the pool, or wait for the tennis court. Each unit comes with one reserved parking space with guest spots sprinkled throughout the crater. Located in the heart of Poipu on the sunny south shore of Kauai close to world class beaches, shops, golf courses and amazing restaurants you can't go wrong staying here.

    Hawaiian Chic Crater Retreat-
    This unit just had all new floors put in (vinyl floors resembling wide planked hard woods), fresh fun paint and Hawaiian print wall papers to bring Aloha to your stay. It's like walking through a Kaleidoscope as the colors change and you move through the condo. The vaulted ceilings with exposed beams make this place feel open and airy. There is no A/C, but we just put in 62" fans with 6 speeds in the living room, master bedroom and kitchen to keep you cool. There is a smaller ceiling fan in the spare room, and a couple of extra floor fans if needed. This unit is located on the shadier ...

    Wow, quickly book this if you have the chance. Skip the crowed, hotel like condo experience and enjoy this private garden oasis. This may be called a condo but it feels exactly like a private home. It sits down in a crater covered in spectacular foliage. Get your camera out this place is amazing! You have a private walk up entrance, a parking space right out front, and complete privacy inside the unit. Every window has a beautiful garden view. Leave the windows open and walk around in your pajamas, no one can see in except the beautiful birds. We went the whole trip and never saw the neighbors. It is a short, lovely walk to three beaches and she has all the gear you will need for your stay. The place was immaculate and is obviously meticulously cared for by the owner. When I VRBO I want to stay somewhere designed for the area and she nailed it. The interior is so fun and feels like a Hawaiian artists home. My only complaint is I don’t own this. Don’t hesitate to book it, it’s better than most homes in the area. There is a pool, grill area and it’s never crowded like other condos. We never even saw anyone when we were in the pool area. Gorgeous! I hope you get it, have fun!

    This is the third time and the second unit we have stayed in the Poipu Crater resort so we are very familiar with the area. This condo was great for a family of four. We all enjoyed the hammocks on the lanai, and another thing we came to appreciate was the fact that the condo was on the shady side of the crater in the afternoon because it was pretty hot throughout our stay. It also appeared to be on the quiet side of the crater because there were more units on the other side. We would stay here again.

    Every single need is thought of at this amazing home!! Just bring a small suitcase (carry-on even!) with casual clothes, bathing suits, water shoes and snorkel gear - nothing else is needed! We loved having the boogie boards, the beach chairs, towels, floats, noodles, cooler and even freezer packs there to use. We stopped at Costco (only 25 minutes away and very near the airport!) as soon as we landed and bought a few ready-made meals, snacks, drinks and breakfast items and we were good to go for the week. The lanai was our favorite “room”. We ate, played cards, read and even napped on the hammocks out there. The BREEZE through the whole house was cool enough to feel perfect - even while sleeping. I kept asking my family to pinch me because I was sure I was dreaming - it is truly paradise! We walked to sunrises and sunsets (don’t miss the 15+ turtles that come up to the edge of Poipu beach every evening at sunset to sleep!) at the multiple beaches nearby. We snorkeled, and partook in some of the great local tours. Everything is within a 20-minute drive (Princeville takes an hour but our boat tour and helicopter tour both left within a 20-minute drive from the home). The whole crater is so peaceful and quiet. We found ourselves whispering on the lanai so we wouldn’t disturb the people or the birds. AND there weren’t any bugs or mosquitoes to bother us at all - we are from NY originally and we grew up constantly fighting mosquitoes every summer - we couldn’t believe that none of us got bit by anything once the entire week! I have to include the flowers and fruit trees all over the crater. There are starfruit trees, banana trees, avocado trees and mango trees. The flowers are all so beautiful- it is like having constant free access to a botanical garden! We also used the pool (we were the only ones using it our first day and very few people after that) and played ping pong. We didn’t use the tennis courts - but would’ve if we had more time - never saw anybody on them. Don’t hesitate to stay here - perfect in every way!!!

    We loved everything about the condo from its location to the decorations. Having the pool and tennis court close was very helpful for our post-beach activities. The birds in the morning made it seem like we were in a rainforest and the breezes kept the condo cool, even in June!
