This two story unit has all the amenities and a great ocean front location. When we return to Kauai we will be... More

Have been staying at Poipu Kapili for Christmas for the last 20 years! Our children and grand-children love it! The condos oceanside are great at 2400 sq. ft. and are well maintained and comfortable. You couldn't ask for a better place to relax.

Unit 22 at Poipu Kapili was perfect for our family of four with it's beautiful decor and every amenity you would want from home -- nothing missing. Fully furnished kitchen and two full bathrooms are especially nice. The grounds are... More

Great atmosphere. Tourism is number one industry as is the attitude toward tourists. There are so many things to do - Scuba, snorkeling, hiking and food! Rum Fire is a great dinner restaurant. Anenue is known for their omelettes. I love the Kauai coffee too. Largest coffee plantation in the US.
