Christl B. from Westlake Village, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2016 Location, location, location --- perfectWe couldn't have asked for better location and layout of the condo. Will return but don't know when??? Complex overall super and ground well maintained. Unit 46 needs to have their carpet cleaned. Can live with the older style kitchen/bathrooms as all were clean. Furnishings pleasant and perfect for the locale, not overly decorated which gave a much more open feel. Rental staff very accommodating plus really appreciated the condo lights on when we arrived very, very late at night.Refrigerator leaked water, first bathroom toilet needed to be refastened to floor and/or needed sealing ring..Notified maintenance during stay. Location was perfect for us (2 people) Thank you. Future returning guests
A guest from Bellevue, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2016 Great location. Helpful office staff. The grounds and the pool are maintained by professional and very pleasant staff. Balcony faces West, so afternoon and early evening were next to impossible on the lanai. An umbrella table would improve that problem. The condo itself was comfortable and well stocked in the kitchen, but I did not feel as if it was freshly cleaned. It felt a bit stale and needed dusting. Stores are very convenient, while not detracting from the feel of the island. Good time.
Donella W. from Gilbert, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 We truly enjoyed our stay at Poipu Kapili Condo #46. We especially enjoyed the location close to magnificent beaches, delicious restaurants, and great shops. The condo had every amenity that you would want, just like home. We loved eating breakfast on the lanai each morning with its magnificent ocean view. We loved the master bedroom with its extremely comfortable bed.
A guest from Greenbrae, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 Our unit was fantastic; the photos are totally accurate. great view, great location; you can walk to Spouting Horn and to Hyatt; well stocked kitchen; everything you need for a day at the beach and snorkeling; ahhhhh Poipu Kapili -we will be back
judy s. from Eugene, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 The room,the view,the sunsets with turtles playing in the surf were more than we could hope for. I searched for months to find just the right place and this was it! Snorkeling on Poipu beach was the best! You step in the water and immediately you see tons of beautiful fish. Monk seals were on the beach sleeping too. Fantastic in every way. Hope to get back. Huge space, clean and comfortable.
Elizabeth S. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 Pros: good price for this great location, walkable to many things - beaches, restaurants, shops - and lovely view off deck just as pictured. Grounds & pool very nice. Fabulous cross breeze w/bedroom & livingroom sliders open. Cons: condo is pretty minimally stocked compared to others and could use a deep clean. We also found the mattress uncomfortable due to sagging. Bottom line: Would recommend. Despite the cons, the location can't be beat making this a good value.
A guest from Portland, OR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 10 days in March, 2016 We loved the view and location of this condo, however we were disappointed that it was not well maintained and was not very clean. The outdoor furniture had an odor so we did not use it. The screen door continually came off the track. The lamp in the bedroom did not work and the overhead light bulb was burnt out so we could not see in our closet until we called maintenance to have this fixed (he was very nice and responsive). We were surprised at the expectations of the rental company that after a 10 day stay, we were expected to use only one set of towels. We attempted to find out the pass word to use the computer and were told by the representative of the rental company that this information was in a binder that was never made available to us. For the amount of money that we spent, on this condo we felt that supplies were skimpy (i.e. napkins that were so small and thin they were hardly functional).
Property Manager Response: Response from Ahh Aloha Kauai Vacation Rentals We are sorry to hear the guest had difficulty with the internet. Our emailed check-in instructions and mobile phone check-in app provide the network name and the information that no password is required. We'll see what we can do to make that clearer. Glad maintenance was able to solve the light bulb problem quickly. To clarify, we do not expect guests to use only one set of towels, and we do provide extras to be sure there are plenty available. Our expectation is that you will go to the laundry room and wash the extra towels if you use more, so that the housekeeper only has the original amount of towels to wash at check-out. Otherwise she can have trouble getting the condo ready on time for the next arrival, if she needs to run multiple loads of laundry.
A guest from Ramona, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2015 Very enjoyable - perfectly located Villa with lovely ocean view.Well equipped - kitchen and bath amenities are very nice - lots of fans for the warmer days/afternoons.Mornings on the lanai are exquisite.Excellent access to all Poipu activities, including the new Kukuiula Shoppping area.
A guest from Reno, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 Overall the stay at Condo No. 46 was very nice. Great views, very clean, oriented perfectly to receive the trade winds to help cool off the heat of the day. But, glassware was lacking, only one large glass some plastic. The medium Teflon coated frying pan saw disgustingly damage, we cooked scrambled eggs in the larger pot.
A guest from Auckland, New Zealand recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2015 We loved the sea views from the Lanai. Living areas were spacious,comfortable and relaxing.we found the kitchen needed updating.the rooms got very hot in the afternoon with no trade winds.Room 46 was advertised as sleeping four but only had one double bed.The couch could not be made into a bed.
AndrewAlicia S. from Orange, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in June, 2015 This was our 11th time at Poipu Kapili and the experience was as good as ever. The entire process was great and the Ahh Aloha service was great. The unit was in good shape and fully stocked with bathroom accessories and kitchen ware. There were plenty of fans to keep us cool and an awesome view of the ocean from our patio. Overall, I would recommend the unit and Ahh Aloha.
A guest from Oro Valley, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 10 days in May, 2015 Good property, but in need of total renovation.Had new carpeting, but everything else was worn out or broken. Sliding screens wouldn't slide, refrigerator door rusted, l/r couch very uncomfortable, woodwork chipped/broken, showers had mold, one b/r sink would not drain--we cleaned it out. Interior looks old and tacky.All appliances were in good working order. Property is a good one if renovated.
Rachael o. from carmichael, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 We rented this place for 5 nights and I t was great. The water was even closer than I thought it was. We went to this place after my sister's wedding in prince vile and a long time family friend was there too. They had stayed a few other places and liked this complex the best. We had a great time and would definitely come back. No air conditioning in the complex, just fans. It worked fine for us.
Marlene W. from Winnipeg, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2015 We had a wonderful time in Poipu Kapili 46.Very large living space, clean and comfortable condo. The view from the lanai is very nice. The grounds are very well kept and the salt water pool is fantastic!The condo is in a great location for a winter vacation. Walking distance to a great beach in front of the Sheraton as well as other beaches in Poipu.Kukui'ula Mall is also within walking distance.
A guest from Richmond, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in December, 2014 we had a very nice time at Poipu kapili. The location was in great proximity to amenities all of which were in walking distance. Everybody in the complex was very friendly and made for a wonderful time around the pool and bbqs.
F W M. from SUNRIVER, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 The location and unit are excellent. However, the owners need to make improvements. The sheets did not fit the bed. the mattress, beach towels and coffee pot need to be replaced as they are in poor condition. There is mold in the shower and lanai furniture.
Spacious, great view, close to the beach, but there are issues
A guest from Anchorage, Alaska recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 I have stayed in several different units at Poipu Kapili for many years. The resort is beautifully landscaped, the pool, pool area and grounds are immaculate, and the resort is small so that walking fro you r car to your unit to the pool to the beach is quick and easy. However, there is construction going on just down the road and directly behind the resort so the "beep, beep"" of equipment is a constant all day and into the early evening. If you are gone during the day it won't matter. This unit, like many other units, has ceiling fans and no air conditioning, which is generally okay, but if the temperatures are high and there are no trade winds, like there was during my recent visit, it is insufferably hot everywhere in the unit. The rental management guy brought some large circulating fans to the unit which helped, but it was still often uncomfortably warm and humid in the bathrooms, kitchen and sometimes the rest of the unit, and except in the early morning there was no shade on the lanai. I would have kept the bedroom screen doors open except I am a light sleeper and with the rooster crowing beginning in the early hours of the morning and the occasional motorcycle or mufflerless car zooming down the street, I had to keep it closed. The wide screen TV is at the opposite side of the living room which makes it hard to see and hear. The decor is somewhat dated rattan furniture and the lamps need brighter bulbs. The kitchen is very well furnished and the bed is extremely comfortable. It was nice to have access to an elevator to haul luggage and groceries up the stairs.
A guest from Laveen, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in September, 2014 This was out second stay at Poipu Kapili 46--this time for 11 nights. Unit and property were excellent. We may visit again.
Judy D. from Huntington Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2014 My husband and I stayed in this BEAUTIFUL condo for 9 glorious nights. The view and location could not have been better. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. The owners supply you with everything you will need for a fun beach day. They have beach towels, beach chairs, snorkels, masks, fins, umbrella, nice sized ice chest, etc. etc. The kitchen has everything you need to cook in if you choose to do that. The condo was very clean we hope to return one day. The ONLY! down side if you want to call it that is that the afternoon sun shines directly on the patio which makes it too hot to sit out there. It also means the living room gets pretty toasty too. In August the sun is pretty intense. They do have wood shutters you can close to keep sun out, but then you don't have the beautiful view. A patio umbrella would be PERFECT! There are several restaurants within walking distance. We liked Keokis and Brennekes. A must do is go to the farmers market in the shopping village right at the turn about in Poipu. You must try a piece of pie from "The Right Slice" it is a little pricey but well worth it.
David C. from Troutdale, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Great location, great property, perfect for a couple, cool and breezy, close to beach's, shopping & resorts but quiet. Only issue is no washer-dryer, may be tough if you stay longer than week.Unit is big and nice condition.
A guest from Clarksville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Poipu Kapili was a great find. The condo had a beautiful view of the ocean, which was just across the street. There is no swimmable beach, but there are beaches very close by. Pool was very nice. We used the grill by the pool area. The grounds were very well kept with many tropical plants. Condo was clean and spacious. Our 2 girls slept on futons on the floor. Having 2 bathrooms was nice. Our family would definitely return to Poipu Kapili!
David W. from Los Altos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2014 We loved our vacation at Poipu Kapili #46. The location is great. We could see the pool and ocean from our condo. It was a short walk to great beaches and restaurants. The condo was clean and had everything that we needed. It even had beach chairs, beach towels, an umbrella, coolers, and boogie boards!
A guest from WOODINVILLE, WASHINGTON recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 Great location, great views, wonderful pool and grounds. The only complaint is a very noisy rooster that crows at 3:00 am every morning outside the bedroom window. We found if we shut the window and turn the fan on high the rooster didn't wake us up.
Brandon M. from Oakley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 We absolutely loved our vacation rental in Poipu. The rental itself was even larger than we had anticipated and had all the amenities to make you feel like you were home away from home. Better yet was the location, which was literally right next to the water and close to shops/restaurants. Stay on the south side for unbeatable weather and stay at this rental for great value!
Sandra B. from Olympia, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in April, 2014 Unit #46 was bright, clean, airy, with good amenities/decor. A few maintenance items were addressed immediately. One was not. The faucet in the second bathroom is plumbed backwards and internally corroded. Water flow was restricted and hot was cold and cold was hot. Water tasted funny. This was not corrected. Shower head in second bathroom needs to be replaced and toilet may have a leak at the base. [These two items were not brought to management teams attention]. Two remotes for the TV was more confusing than needed to be. The complex's office staff was very courteous and helpful. Grounds were immaculate. LP barbecue grills are in the back in an inconvenient location.
Joan and Duane H. from St. Adolphe, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 Everything as promised in the rental agreement.Loved the extra items included in the kitchen ie everything from the garlic press to the lemon reamer. Spent many relaxing mornings sipping pressed coffee watching the whales playing in the ocean.One small discrepancy was there is not the futons for extra guests as promised just two tiny foam mattresses in the closet only suitable for a child.
musty odor under kitchen sink and would have been nice to have bq
Gloria P. from San Matteo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2013 everything was great comfy king bed short on towels, musty odor under sink, excellent view of pool and ocean. Great location cant beat it for the price. Lovely grounds as well.
A guest from West Vancouver, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in December, 2013 We LOVED our stay at the Kapili. It was very confortable, spacious, very well located and the view: EXCEPTIONAL! We highly recommend this place. We can't wait to come back!
A guest from Rohnert Park, California recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in November, 2013 We had a wonderful vacation. This condo was perfect for us. Location could not be beat. Considering the cost and location we would definitely like to stay here again. We appreciate the price per night, so that average people can afford the experience. Thanks again!
Claude R. from Okotoks, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 Thank-you for renting this lovely condo. We had one of the most relaxing holidays ever, the views, sunset, sunrise and the ocean were out of this world. we ate every meal outside and one night even had Hawaiian music during our meal by someone watching the sunset. It was very hard to come back home.The only thing the bathroom sinks could be updates and I did have to scrub the kitchen sink. Anyhow thanks again.
A guest from St. John's, NL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 Great location with beautiful view.Kitchen quite dated, but well equipped. No washer/dryer in unit, which was a bit inconvenient.
A guest from Fredericksburg, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in September, 2013 Great location and beautiful grounds. We have stayed at this complex 4 times but first time using VRBO and not going through the complex. It was less experience through VRBO. The lanai has great view of the ocean during the day and of the stars at night. Condo was okay. Could use some new carpet and better sheets for the bed. Dishes were still in the dishwasher from previous guest when we arrived. However, it's a great value. You shouldn't be spending much time inside anyway while in Kauai. The owners have nice beach chairs towels an umbrella and boogie boards for you use. I appreciated that. I would definitely recommend this unit. If you want a higher end unit with nicer appliances and carpet, etc, go through the Pouipu Kapili complex. But If you just want a nice place to to come in from the beach, rest and hang out on the lanai, it's perfect.
A guest from Laveen, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 We spent one week in this Kauai condo. It is in a desirable location with a well stocked kitchen. Very clean and highly recommended.
Ben L. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 Stayed here for 4 nights in August 2013. Fantastic views from the balcony, nice pool, and the unit was in good overall shape. It was nice that the owners had supplied beach chairs, towels, and a cooler as well. My only complaint was that we noticed the dishwasher was full of dirty dishes when we arrived. Not a big deal as we just loaded ours in as well and ran the dishwasher. Overall a great property near Poipu and Koloa. I would stay again!
Peter S. from WALNUT CREEK, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2013 Description of unit was very accurate, pictures also gave true idea of the property.Very spacious unit, well maintained. Furniture more than adequate. Very comfortable overall.Beach chairs and umbrellas probably in need of replacements.Simply wonderful.
A guest from Lakewood, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 We stayed here for 4 nights in June and had a great experience. It is a fantastic location and the grounds are fabulous. The unit worked just great, but it could use some updating. I think they should get rid of the old (and seemingly yucky) bathroom rugs. Also, they claimed to have a "futon" for our daughter to sleep on, but it was simply a cushion for the floor. But she didn't complain. We still loved it.
Wendy H. from San Ramon, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 Unpack and relax. Small, quiet property with incredible ocean views. Easy walk along the ocean road to shops and dining. Nightly gathering to watch the sunset. Just an amazing place!
Carla A. from Kirkland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2013 We really enjoyed staying in Poipu Kapili #46. The condo was very large with an excellent view as promised. It was a short walk to a great boogie boarding beach which my son and husband really liked! Also it was great that the condo had beach chairs (older, but still great), umbrellas, and boogie boards to borrow.All in all, it was a wonderful trip. The only negative would be that the condo is dated, but when you are mostly outside, and sightseeing, it's a perfect "base" to come back to each evening. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and we slept well which is also important.
Sandy S. from Oshkosh, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2012 The condo was really beautiful! It was in a marvelous location, with the ocean right across the street. We enjoyed sunrise and sunset every day and watching the sea turles play in the surf. The view from the balcony was more then I could ask for. Restaurants, shopping, and a nice beach were real close by. I wish we could have had it for the week. I would definately stay again. Thank you!
A guest from Anacortes, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 16 days in December, 2012 At first we had a hard time opening the door & called the emergency after hours phone numbers. There was no answer at either numbers, luckily our kids figured it out. The check in instructions weren't quite accurate, but we got in and all was well. I wouldn't say the room was spotless and hadn't been updated like other rooms but it was great for us. The price & location were fantastic. The view was even better than I thought & the grounds were meticulously maintained.
A guest from Medford, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in November, 2012 Spacious one bedroom with a great ocean view and sunsets too. Would recommend it for a relaxing get a way. Beautiful, well maintained grounds.
A guest from Redmond, WA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012 Smelled like bug spray in all cabinets. Screen door needs to be replaced. Linens are VERY old, kitchen cabinets very disorganized (under sink, spice cabinet). I just felt the place was a bug haven. Beach chairs old & rusty. Ice cubes had a very unpleasant taste even after fresh ice was made. Very dark entryway. Owner needs to completely clean out all cabinets, make repairs, replace bed, pillows, & linens. I just wasn't comfortable there. View was nice.
Lynda M. from El Cajon, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2012 This property, although spacious, is in need of a "makeover." * King bed in Master BR, excellent.* Great setting & view.* Baths & fixtures, & furniture throughout condo is dated & worn.* Guest Bath door hook falling off.* Water pressure in the Master Bath & Kitchen was insufficient to hand wash dishes (I left a note to the housekeeper accordingly).* The sliding screens were torn.* The wood door pulls were broken. * Sofa with loose cushions, was old & uncomfortable.* Chest of drawers in MBR has 2 drawers in need of repair.* Lamp in MBR has no finial to secure lampshade.* MBR TV worked, unlike the LR TV.* LR TV cable box & 2 remotes was complicated & a source of frustration. Repeated attempts to work the system ultimately required multiple calls to David, guest relations manager, the cable company, & a house call from Ted, to correct some operating issues & acknowledge another of the remotes problems was dead batteries (no replacements available).* Our gratitude to David & Ted for their helpfulness.
A guest from Middletown, NJ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 Really loved renting a condo rather than a hotel - more room than a hotel, had a kitchen, 2 bathrooms, etc. The one obnoxious thing was that they advertised wi-fi and I wasn't able to get it to work for days. Seems like an easy thing, but trying to research and book excursions on a mobile phone can be tough. In any case, the place was nice and well located. Would absolutely stay again and recommend renting a condo over a hotel.
A guest from Vacaville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 We recently stayed at this condo and loved it. We walked to Poipu Beach everyday and had sunset at "the wall" every evening. It was a large unit, clean and had a beautiful view of the ocean. We are looking forward to staying here again next year!
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 The condo was huge (1,200sq ft). Having 2 bathrooms was nice. Road noise was minimal despite bedroom being located next to it. Being on the 2nd floor offered a great view of the pool and ocean. The unit could definitely be updated but was adequate for our needs. No central air.
Poipu location great...this unit needs a little work.
A guest from Englewood, CO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 We enjoyed the view from Poipu 46. However, there were several issues with sliding doors, water temperature and pressure and it took several days for a handyman to arrive. We were a bit disappointed with the overall condition of the unit for the could use some renovation, tile work (grout) and the floor was dirty - please mop for our cleaning fee!!!Overall, the location was great (quick walk to the beach) and the view was wonderful. This unit backs onto a fairly busy street so we heard a lot of traffic and the chickens/roosters are bad in this area. We were unable to keep the windows open at night due to noise which makes it stuffy with no AC.Hope this helps someone make a more educated decision. We were so pleased with the property that we stayed at in Princeville that we were spoiled before checking in here. The pool area, however, is great! Nice and quiet and beautiful gardens. There's also a gas grill which was a big plus for us.
Caryn B. from Mather, California recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 Property was in great location, clean, contained enough basic supplies so all we had to buy were groceries. Bed was comfy!
A guest from Redmond, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2012 Wonderful location and property! The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. This unit is HUGE for two people. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and plan to return just as soon as we can. The onsite proparty management people can be a little odd. They reminded us several times that we were not renting from 'their' onsite rental program. We didn't deal with them other than initial introductions and occasional hello, but that would not deter me from staying at this property again.
Michael S. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2012 We had a great stay at Poipu Kapili #46. The view from the lanai was wonderful. You could see the ocean and the beautiful landscaping around the pool. The only complaint we had was that the lanai faced west and the afternoon sun was very hot. This prevented us from sitting outside until the sun went below the trees. We were surprised that the condo didn't have A/C but discovered it didn't need it due to the cross breeze when the windows were opened. The kitchen and baths could use a little upgrading but overall the place was very nice, very spacious and had everything we needed. The location was great. You didn't feel hemmed in by other condos or resorts. I wish I were back there right now!
Will H. from SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2012 Positive recent experience at Poipu Kapili 46 in Koloa, HI, United States. Only minor criticism would be that they need to leave clearer instructions regarding wireless access, garbage disposal etc. We figured it all out, but a laminated card with all of the details inside the condo would have been helpful.
Laura S. from San Francisco, CALIFORNIA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 We were very pleased with this rental. It was extremely clean, the view is better than pictured, the location is great (as long as you have a car - not much is within walking distance), and the maintenance was friendly and helpful. We only encountered maintenance because when we arrived there was a note saying that they were coming back with a part to fix the guest bath toilet and sure enough, they returned shortly after we checked in and fixed whatever was wrong with the toilet in about a minute. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice.
A guest from Elk Grove, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in February, 2012 The location is ideal, the grounds are impeccable and Ahh Aloha was professional and responsive regarding our concerns.
A guest from Saskatoon, SK recommends this property. Stayed for 59 days in January, 2012 What could be better than watching whales from your lanai while drinking your morning cup of coffee! The condo has all the amenities needed, quiet location (other than the roar of the surf ;-), good shopping and great restaurants within walking distance.We'll be back next year.
Glen E. from Winnipeg, Manitoba recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2011 Our stay exceeded our expectations. The view was spectacular and the grounds and pool area beautifully maintained.The friendly office staff could not have been more helpful.Truly a piece of paradise!
James M. from Brush Prairie, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in October, 2011 We did not know when renting this condo, that it was rented separately from the rental facility on site. So when there were any problems, we had to call another number and schedule someone to fix the problem. A bit frustrating to say the least. I would stay at Poipu Kapili again, but I would make sure to rent through the office on site. I would also request a unit with a washer/dryer, it was an expensive hassle to trek the laundry across the grounds.
Mogens G. from Olathe, Kansas recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2011 We have only good things to say about this condo.The location is perfect, close to one of Kauai?s best beaches and the private pool only a few steps away.The area is quiet and peaceful and only a short walk to areas with shopping and restaurants.We really enjoyed our stay at Poipu Kapili #46Mogens
Gail S. from Alameda, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 Great location on the south side. Nice amenities. Good pool, and view of the ocean from the living room. I wish there was a washer/dryer in the unit. Otherwise
Nancy G. from McCall, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in March, 2011 This is the only place to stay. Small; beautiful; close to everything; friendly; everything you desire. We will go back!
Maureen D. from DePere, WI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2011 Condo is in a great location. The other units in the complex are well maintained but this particular unit is filthy dirty, smells like cat urine, has ants everywhere from the kitchen to the bathrooms, has an electrical problem in that every time you plug something in to an outlet in the living room there is a little spark, a can light in the bathroom literally hanging from the ceiling over the shower and is in need of serious updates/repairs. The furnishings are from the 70's and are uncomfortable and outdated. The layout of the condo is great, 2 bathrooms and very spacious. View from condo is wonderful. I'd recommend the complex but warn against staying in this unit. We called the number they gave us for directions and didn't receive a call back for several hours. The woman they give you as a contact for arranging tours, etc is tough to reach and when you finally speak with her only recommends the tours she gets a kick back on, and even then charges more than you would pay going directly to the excursion company. When we asked her for restaurant recommendations she said she'd give us those when we called back to arrange a tour. When pressed to give them to us now said she had to go. With so many places to stay on Kauai, this is not the best option. The complex is nice but this unit #46 stinks, literally.

A guest from Kennelon, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in February, 2011 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Poipu Kapili #46. Everything we needed was provided in this villa. The ocean view from the living room & the lanai was fabulous & the location was perfect. We could walk to the Poipu Village Shopping Center or the beach & many restaurans were nearby.
Chris M. from Roseville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in January, 2011 Poipu Kapili is a beautiful, quiet, great location property. Having 2 bathrooms was a special treat for me and my husband. Condo had everything we needed. Definitely, would return.
Marsha M. from Dammeron Valley, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in January, 2011 Wish it had a pull out couch in the living room, but otherwise love the bldg and location and spaciousness of condo.
Nancy S. from Packwood, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in November, 2010 The pool area was very well kept and most of the time quite peacefull. The walkways from the parking lot into the condos were a mess. We swept it ourselves. The toilet in the big bathroom had a leak and would make a loud noise when filling up several times a day and night.I found everything I needed when cooking. We enjoyed our stay and will book there again if available.
Jaymee J. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2010 Overall, we were very happy with the property and the stay. There are only two negative points which could use improvement:1) The reservation process was unprofessional, in that we were charged two times for the condo (once on my husband's card, which we had used for the reservation, and once on mine, which I had called in with to make the final payment - well in advance of the due date). Once everything was cleared up and my husband's card was credited, and the final payment remained paid on my card, we still received an email several weeks later saying that our balance was due. The several different locations and/or staff that booked the stay need to communicate better to avoid this type of confusion in the future.2) The furniture in the living room of the condo was of poor quality and very uncomfortable. For people leaving their homes for a relaxing vacation, we expected to have a comfortable couch and chairs to sit in, but that was not the case; the furniture was rattan or wicker with pillows that were thin and easily slipped out from under you when you were sitting on them. A better furniture investment is necessary for the comfort of guests.
Don F. from Reno, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2010 It is a nice unit but needs updating. The add in VRBO said it had a washer/dryer in the unit which was not true, there was a washer and dryer available on the property at the far end of the complex. I would rent the unit again because of the price and location. The grounds and pool are very nice and just across the street from the ocean. Beautiful sunsets!
Peggy H. from Columbus, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2010 We were provided written information that there was a washer & dryer in the condo, which was not true. Unfortunately, we packed thinking we could wash clothes more frequently. In addition, living room carpet stained, ceiling fan in living room did not work, sliding doors difficult to open/close. Overall, great view, roomy, and enjoyed overall accommodations.
Property Manager Response: Response from Ahh Aloha Kauai Vacation Rentals We are happy to report that, as soon as these matters were brought to our attention, they were corrected by maintenance. Carpet has been cleaned; ceiling fan replaced; sliding doors repaired :-)
