As soon as I saw an aerial photo of Poipu Shores, and read that all the units were oceanfront, I knew I wanted to stay here. We were here for 10 days in May, and I was not disappointed! Sitting on the lanai gazing at the ocean, listening to the waves crash on the rocks, was exactly what I had...

Just got back from a week trip to Kauai and stayed in 101A at Poipu Shores. The unit was nicely updated and clean and the location can't be beat. We were right next to the pool and about a 5 minute walk from the beach. This unit has 2 master bedrooms, both with king beds (maybe 1 was a queen?)...

We stayed at PoiPu Shores for 8 nights, did a lot of research before we came and while we were here. We think this setting is the best in the PoiPu area for this price range. Not sure why this complex is so low rated, maybe the recent updates will help raise it's status. Here is why we liked it....

We've been lucky enough to stay here seven or eight times over the past dozen years. We've always gotten apartments in Building A, which range from the deluxe penthouse (406A) to standard 2 bedroom, two bath condos. Since the renovations to balconies and walkways were finished we've had nothing but good times here. This time we were in 402A, a...

We just returned after a 9 day stay at Poipu Shores. It was our fourth visit, and certainly not our last. For those not familiar with Kauai, Poipu has better winter weather and swimming than you find on the East and North sides. Poipu Shores is situated atop lava rocks, a short quarter-mile walk from Brennicke's Beach a couple hundred...

The owners John and Janis were wonderful to work with. Very laid back - just like Kauai! It was so wonderful - everything you need is there. Beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkels and fins, a full size washer and dryer, beautiful modern kitchen and the beds were so comfortable! The living/dining area was much larger than a typical...

My family just returned from a 5 day stay in the penthouse condo 406A at Poipu Shores.

We stayed there in July 2011 for our honeymoon. We had a one bedroom suite on the main floor with our patio right over the ocean where we could see sea turtles swimming around. The location is perfect, short walk to the beach and close to resteraunts. The best part was hearing the ocean throughout the night.
