The early-morning walks were spectacular! The Villas must be located on a penisula, because in the same 10 minute walk you can be on the beach and then walk to the other side and see the ocean splashing up on the volcanic rock. One day we went to a local-artists swap meet. They had everything from jewelry and clothing to paintings and wood crafts. I couldnt pass up an afternoon of reading on the lanai. The view was distracting from my book, however, and the light breeze was so refreshing.

Our family of five rented a 3 BR/3Bath unit for two weeks in 8/09 and we couldn't have been more pleased. The unit and surrounding grounds were immaculate and beautifully landscaped. The unit itself was very spacious, had a large kitchen with new appliances and the furnishings throughout the unit were new, clean and comfortable. Having a pool right outside the unit was very convenient and having the beaches only a five minute walk away makes this location a perfect one. Since our departing flight did not leave until 11pm, we asked the manager for a late checkout (normal time is about 10 am) and she offered 7pm right off the bat, which permitted us to make the most of our last day.

The Villas at Poipu Kai were as advertised--amenities you would expect in a luxury home. The property was relatively new so the condition of the condo was excellent. The location was great with a very pleasant walk to a great boogie-boarding beach and a nice sandy beach to swim or snorkel in. The staff was very friendly and professional.

Accommodation can make or break a holiday and this one certainly added to a great vacation. Every detail was covered from the quality furnishings, large kitchen, huge bedrooms and bathrooms...lots and lots of storage space. Details put this over the top....the kitchen was FULLY equipped from the quality appliances to every item you may need ....from good knives to lots of extra dishes and serving platters you could entertain 20 people easily! Even had a rice cooker. The only thing better than the accommodations was the service staff....Sally was outstanding the perfect host. Would not stay anywhere else on this island!

These are the newest condos on the island and they're beautiful and most important to me clean. They are 5-6 minute walk to Poipu Beach and Shipwreck beach. I would highly recommend if you're looking for peace and quiet and not a huge hotel experience.
- Lynette, California
I really enjoyed my stay. The entire staff from management through maintenance were extremely helpful I would highly recommend my associates to stay here. Thanks for the hospitality.

With only photos on line, didn't know if it would meet expectation. Met and exceeded expectation!! Beautifully furnished, top of the line appliances, large closets, great lanai, five minute walk to Poipu Beach, wonderful pool and spa. Perfect for multifamily vacation or several couples. A real winner.
- Rosemary, California
We loved the condo and will be back. Everything was wonderful.
- Karen, Georgia
These condos are gorgeous and very comfortable. No ocean view from our unit (pool view) but the landscaping is beautiful, and we were there with young kids so not much time for ocean views anyway. Nearby Poipu Beach Park is a great place to take young kids for water fun... it is a nice walk down to the beach area.

Best condo in Koloa. Brand new, clean, central air. Don't be fooled by the other places who say the trade winds keep it cool. We just came back mid October it was 88 and humid. Had 17 month old who would have been extremely unhappy without A/C. Little tricky to find condo at night for first time but by far the best place to stay. You can walk to the Grand Hyatt if you want. Beaches are 5 min. walk. You’re not directly on beach but not many places are. This place had everything including brand new furniture, no mildew due to air conditioning. Nice pool, not heated but did not need to be. If you want to go to fancy pool at Grand Hyatt you can anyway. Went and used Grand Hyatt Pool one day, no one stops you or asks if you’re staying there. If you’re used to luxury, stay here. We are spoiled New Yorker's and were very satisfied. Again, you want air conditioning and this is one of the few condos that has it. Our unit was F210. Book it!!

We were delighted with how well equipped our unit was, and how lovely the furnishings were. The covered porch overlooking the pool was the perfect spot for coffee in the a.m. and the evening meal. This was a terrific choice for our family stay.

A tsunami warning went off our first night there. Thankfully, the house is not in the evac zone and we did not have to leave. The house is wonderful! It feels very secluded and the walk to the beaches in both directions are quick and nice. Grilled fresh fish from Koloa Fish Market almost every night. Kitchen is well stocked. The management team is extremely friendly and helpful. Had a great stay!!
- Emily, New Mexico
Staff was excellent and went the extra mile to satisfy our party. Will definitely stay again in the future. Very luxurious amenities. Highly recommended.
- Eduardo, California
Lauren was the best!! helping us find & get into the property. was great having her come to us after checking in, most all resorts you have to go to them. The fresh flowers was a great touch. We felt like kings & queens in this place. Just what we were looking for & we will be back & will tell all our friends & family. Aloha, Mahalo & A hui ho!!
- Robin, Tennessee
The room was clean and beautiful and also very private. We enjoyed the spacious lanai. The bedrooms were lovely and the beds were very comfortable. The view from our master suite was great as we could see the ocean. There were 8 of us staying in the room (4 adults, 4 kids) and it never felt crowded at all. The self check-in and check-out was convenient and easy and the staff were helpful and friendly. We definitely hope to stay here again when we return to Kauai!
- Don, Canada
We stayed at the Villas for our first vacation as a family (my husband and I now have a 2 year old). It was perfect - we had a full kitchen for meals at home, laundry for our clothes, our own bedrooms - plus the grounds & amenities are great. And you can't beat the location! This is a perfect place for families, young couples, and older travelers alike - I'm recommending it to my brother for his honeymoon and will definitely stay here with my family again. No complaints.
- Chandra, California
THE STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL WITH OUR REQUEST AND GIVING ADVICE OF PLACES TO GO. THE BEACH IS VERY CLOSE AND THE POOL AND HOT TUB WERE VERY CLEAN. THE CONDO WAS VERY CLEAN AND THE KITCHEN WAS WELL STOCKED WITH SMALL APPLIANCES AND ALL THE KIT CADGETS NEEDED TO FIX ANY MEAL. THE GROUNDS ARE LOVELY AND A JOY TO WALK AROUND. HAVING ACCESS TO BEACH CHAIRS, FLOTATION ITEMS WAS A BIG PLUS AND WE USED THEM EACH DAY. WE WILL COME BACK THE NEXT TIME WE VISIT THIS BEAUTIFUL ISLAND. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR A LOVELY STAY ALOHA
- Rene, Washington
We were in Kauai for our daughters daughter, her husband and my two grandson (age 1 & 41/2) stayed in the Poolside Villa. The Villa was spectacular along with the close proximity to the pool were the grandbabies hug out. It was great to pack up everyone and walk to the beach for a sun drenched day. Oh did I mention the lanai with the ceiling better place to relax!! hopping is close by. In short I cannot rave enough about the service and property
- Chris and Bruce, British Columbia
My husband had no idea what we were headed for, when we enter the property - he said "Wow" and continued to said it as we went through the condo! Convenient location and amazing property.
- Melody, Alabama
While we enjoyed our first visit to Kauai, we must say The Villas played a big part in our superior experience. The properety is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in D210 which has the ocean view. Very private and peaceful but close to everything Poipu has to offer. We would definetly stay at The Villas again. Thank you Ann and Lauren.

We loved our week at this property, it was exactly as portrayed on the website!! The condo was beautiful we had 3 bdrm and 3 bath unit which was very confortable for our family of 5. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possible want. There are beach towels in your units upon arrival as well as beach chairs, cooler bags & boogie boards available at the main building. There was a local grocery store app. 10 min away in which to buy groceries as well as many choices of restaurants also within a 10 minute drive. The walk to the beach was an easy 5 minutes through the green belt. Our family all took surf lessons from the beach in front of the Sheraton which were really fun, actually the kids said it was the highlight of their trip to Kauai. After our week in Kauai we spent another week in Maui at the Fairmont in Wailea which was also beautiful. Although Maui was also amazing we all preferred the more laid back feel of Kauai. We met others who claimed that Kauai of today is as Maui was 20 years ago with regards to how commercial and busy it has become. I would go back to the Villas at Poipu Kai in a heartbeat and would love to be able to stay there for a much longer visit next time.

This facility was a five star address, from the stylish designer kitchen to the lovely views off the top floor lanai. Viewing the ocean, sunsets, rainbows, the beautiful pool and the well manicured grounds was an everyday occurrence. What continued to impress us was the friendly, professional, but warm attention to detail given by the onsite staff. From the General Manager to the Grounds Superintendent, they cheerfully met our every need. We would recommend the Villas to anyone looking for a memorable experience on Kauai.
- Brian, Texas
This place was amazing! We had stayed at the Hyatt several times before but felt like we needed more room now with kids. I didn't want some older, run-down place so did a bit of research. We were not disappointed one bit. It's not right on the beach, but within walking distance which is totally fine. The furnishings are gorgeous. They were very accomodating and provided us with a crib. The washer/dryer in the unit also came in handy and I love the AC. We will be staying here again the next time we come. Thanks for a great stay!
