FAQs

How far is Poipu Kapili from the airport?

You’ll enjoy a scenic 20 – 25 minute drive from the Lihue airport to our doorstep. Printed directions to the property are on the site.

What are the differences between the various unit categories?

Every condominium at Poipu Kapili offers a lovely, white-water view of the ocean.

Our one-bedroom condos all surround the pool, located in buildings #4 and #5 on the site plan. The ocean view condos provide a view of the ocean from your private lanai (patio or balcony). The deluxe one- bedroom condos feature ocean views from within the condo as well as from the private lanai. The premium one-bedroom condos have comparable views to the deluxe condos in addition to upscale interior furnishings, spa-style baths, natural stone bath and kitchen surfaces and upgraded electronics and amenities.

The oceanfront and premium two-bedroom condos are located along the oceanfront in buildings #1, 2, 6 & 7.  Many premium condos are corner condos with both front and side lanais. Views are comparable in all oceanfront condos; premium condos have upgraded interior furnishings, spa-style baths and natural stone kitchen surfaces with upgraded appliances, electronics and amenities.

The oceanview two-bedroom condos are located in building 3 and have a lovely view of the pool and courtyard with ocean views from the lania and master bedroom.

Penthouse Suites are located on the third level of buildings 4 and 5 and offer dramatic ocean and mountain views as well as gorgeous views of the grounds.  Premium penthouses have upscale furnishings, spa-style baths, natural stone kitchen surfaces and upgraded appliances, electronics and amenities.

Can we request a specific unit?

Yes. Whether booking on-line or calling our resort you can request a specific condo and reserve available dates. Use our on-line calendar to display available dates.  

Are you right on the beach?

The shoreline directly in front of the property is rocky. A small, two-lane road, ending in a cul-de-sac, separates the property from the ocean. You’ll enjoy dramatic ocean views unencumbered by beach umbrellas and sunbathers. There are several lovely, white sand swimming beaches within a few minutes walk. 

Is Poipu Kapili child friendly?

The spaciousness and luxurious comfort of our condominiums provide families with a relaxing and peaceful “home away from home”. Many families return to Poipu Kapili year after year, enjoying the surrounding beaches and many island attractions, then retreating to the elegant comfort of their Poipu Kapili condo for a quiet evening after a day of play in the sun.

We welcome families to Poipu Kapili. However, we ask that parents provide supervision for their children, respecting the privacy of other guests and maintaining the peaceful, serene ambiance for which our property is known. Pool and House Rules are strictly enforced. Because the pool is situated in the center of the property, excessive pool noise can easily disrupt other guests in their condos. Pool hours are from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. winter months and until 9:00 p.m. during summer months. Toys and flotation devices are not allowed in the pool. No loud, boisterous play is allowed at the pool or elsewhere at Poipu Kapili, and such devices as scooters, skateboards or bicycles cannot be used on the property. Our intention is not to limit your child’s fun, rather to ensure a safe and restful visit for all Poipu Kapili guests.

Do you have a babysitting service?

We can provide you with a referral list of excellent babysitters who will come to your condominium when you need a night out.

What are the front desk hours, and what do we do if arriving after hours?

Our staff is on duty from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Mon-Fri and 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Sat-Sun. If you are arriving after hours you will retrieve your condo keys from a lock box and register the next morning with our front desk. You will need an access code. This will be provided by separate E-mail after your reservation is confirmed.

Are there blow dryers, irons and ironing boards in my condominium?

You will find an iron and ironing board in every condo and at least one blow dryer. In most cases every bathroom has a  blow dryer.  Call ahead with special requests to ensure you have what you need in your condo. We will do everything possible to make certain your condo is equipped to meet your needs.

What will I find in my kitchen?

Poipu Kapili condominiums are well equipped, with everything from small electrical appliances like toaster, blender, coffee maker and electric can opener to complete bake and cookware. You’ll find salt & pepper, a starter packet of coffee, sugar and non-dairy creamer. Fresh herbs may be cut from the Poipu Kapili herb garden.

Do you have a restaurant on property?

Poipu Kapili is more a home environment than a resort so you will not find a restaurant on the property. There are several excellent restaurants within a few minutes walk and many more within a few minutes drive. Poipu is known for its varied dining. You will find everything from pastries to sandwiches to gourmet dining right in our neighborhood.

Can you arrange activities for us?

Our staff is here to help you with anything you desire, from making restaurant reservations to arranging boat and helicopter tours to describing great hikes for you. Just ask us.

Do you have meeting rooms for small business groups?

Poipu Kapili is a perfect place for small business groups and company incentive groups. There is not a meeting room on property but we are happy to arrange meeting facilities for your group at nearby locations.

Is there a grocery store near you?

There are several local grocery stores in our area. Our favorite is the Kukui’ula Store on Poipu Road, located just at the entry to the round-about.  You’ll find very fresh fish, meat and produce as well as a nice selection of natural foods. It is a small, local owned and operated market.  If you are seeking a larger store with bakery and deli you will probably want to stop on your way from the airport at the Times Supermarket in Lihue. As you are leaving Lihue on the way to Poipu, you will see the Kukui Grove Shopping Center on your left side (Taco Bell, Burger King and Macy’s  face the highway.) Times Market is located in this shopping center. Directly across the street you’ll find a lovely, large Costco.

Are Beach/Pool Towels Supplied?

One beach towel per person will be supplied in your condominium.
