We think of the Poipu Kapili Staff as family – from the front office, to the gardeners, to the cleaning staff. Most have worked there as long as we’ve been coming over – a sign of a well-run organization. Need to also mention that the pool is WONDERFUL. It is an added bonus that Poipu Kapili is located within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, and shopping. One last thing, all the friends that we have recommended Poipu Kapili to, are now returners.

The Poipu Beach area in general was fantastic. We rarely saw a cloud in the sky and not once did we see a rain drop (at least during the day/evening hours). It’s in a perfectly central location so a relatively brief car ride can get you to the canyons in one direction, or to the north shore in the other direction. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, many beaches to try out (the Sheraton’s sandy beach is an easy walk from the condo), and of course the pool is right in the center of the property. We were so pleased to have a fully equipped kitchen, as the restaurants can be pricey. We made a couple of runs to the grocery stores and were able to cook most of our dinners “at home”, which saved a lot of money. There are several grills on the property so it was fun to make a cocktail and grill out.
We were concerned when we saw a construction site directly behind the property, but we learned that construction had been halted for financial reasons, so it was a non-issue. Who knows when (or if) it will start back up again, but it would probably be wise to check, just in case.
We definitely want to come back to Kauai sometime, and after exploring a great deal of the island we decided that Poipu Kapili is where we’ll book again. There are obviously a LOT of condos, hotels, and rental houses to choose from, but to us Poipu Kapili was the best of all worlds — convenience, amenities, affordability, and peacefulness. It was an A+ vacation!

We absolutely loved our stay in #25. The condo has recently been renovated and the owners did a lovely job! We chose this unit for the view and it did not disappoint. My husband and I spent a lot of our time sitting on the lanai and looking out over the ocean.
The condo was stocked with laundry/dish detergent, beach towels, various spices and a small packet of coffee. I would recommend hitting up the Costco in Lihue after arriving in Kauai. We stopped and bought beverages, breakfast and lunch items. After checking in we headed back to a small store to buy condiments, sugar and butter. We also checked out the farmer’s market at the Kukui’ula Shopping Center (on Wednesdays) and ended up buying fresh pasta, sauce and a salad for dinner.
The grounds of Poipu Kapili are gorgeous. Very well maintained. The pool is clean and very refreshing.
The staff at Poipu Kapili was very friendly and helpful. We stopped by the office to borrow a tennis racket and buy a can of balls. We also were able to buy some delicious Kauai coffee at the front desk.
I truly can’t find one negative thing to say about Poipu Kapili. I couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else in Kauai!
