We just returned after a 9 day stay at Poipu Shores. It was our fourth visit, and certainly not our last. For those not familiar with Kauai, Poipu has better winter weather and swimming than you find on the East and North sides. Poipu Shores is situated atop lava rocks, a short quarter-mile walk from Brennicke's Beach a couple hundred...

The owners John and Janis were wonderful to work with. Very laid back - just like Kauai! It was so wonderful - everything you need is there. Beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkels and fins, a full size washer and dryer, beautiful modern kitchen and the beds were so comfortable! The living/dining area was much larger than a typical...

My family just returned from a 5 day stay in the penthouse condo 406A at Poipu Shores. The 3 bedroom (one was used as an office and has a trundle bed), 3 bath condo is nothing short of stunning with the decor and incredible amenities. It is obviously meticulously maintained and the owners spared no expense with this jewel of...

For a change of pace I looked for a different property when I went to Kauai on business the last time (Jan. thru March of 2011). That being said a co-worker and I rented the penthouse at this resort.

Mahalo for your comments on your stay early last year. We appreciate your views and use them in a positive way to assist us in doing a better job. We were unaware of some of the mechanical difficulties you encountered but all have been rectified. Our location, fifty feet from the ocean means salt intrusion is an ongoing issue such...

We stayed there in July 2011 for our honeymoon. We had a one bedroom suite on the main floor with our patio right over the ocean where we could see sea turtles swimming around. The location is perfect, short walk to the beach and close to resteraunts. The best part was hearing the ocean throughout the night.

Aloha and mahalo for choosing Poipu Shores as your resort destination. Our property is situated on a rocky bluff only feet away from the ocean which really gives you the dramatic affect of hawaiian surf and an incredible view of the ocean.
