“Nice Poipu Beach condo with a few key exceptions.”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Suite Paradise is a property management company that rents vacation condominiums owned by the Poipu Kai Homeowners Association. Our stay from June 19 to June 28 was our second summer vacation renting at this property. We booked this condo more than six months in advance with a cash deposit. Last time we were here we had Manualoha 305 and this time we had Manualoha 206.
We were notified Thursday before our Friday arrival that during our stay there would be power washing and painting on 206 during our stay. The work occurred between 8AM and 5PM. Waking up at 8AM during a long planned vacation to a power washer compressor was frustrating. Having workers peer into the window of your condo at all hours during the day was disturbing. There is no blind on one window in the master suite and you could not be in the room during working hours. For disturbing our vacation Suite Paradise said the decision was made by the Poipu Homeowners Association and that there was nothing they could do. I note that they did not inform of us of the building maintenance until it was too late to change our plans. For disturbing our vacation we were offered a 25% discount for the days we were in the condo that work was being performed.
The condo 206 is an inferior unit compared to the other units our family occupied during this vacation- 305, 306 and 406. Unit 206 is not updated. One blind was broken and I had to improvise a way to keep it up. The window on the front bedroom could not be locked. The sliding door on the upper lanai would lock only with careful fussing. The power strip supplying the cable box and TV tripped often and had to be reset manually. The unit 206 was clean and
adequately equipped. There is not air conditioning in this unit and if you cannot open the windows, say for instance there is power washing or painting going on outside, you are going to be miserable.
The location of unit 206 is ideal. You can park close to the condo- handy for lugging the groceries up all the stairs. Poipu Beach Park is a 75 years walk from the condo. There was a nice ocean view from this unit. The grounds of this property are exceptional. Nice pools, nice grill areas. I don't play tennis but the courts look to be very nice. One additional complaint is that the restaurant/bar at this property "Kalapaki Joe's" was closed for renovation and we were not informed that it would be closed during our stay.
Overall, I think this is a superior property and these ocean front condos are an nice way to stay on Poipu Beach. Our previous experience at this property was much better than this trip.

Aloha Soettu,
We, at Suite Paradise, apologize for the inconvenience caused by the power worker and I'm pleased to learn that you were offered a 25% discount for this inconvenience. Unfortunately, the homeowners association doesn't always notify the rental agencies about minor maintenance. This is also true regarding the status of the independent restaurant which is conveniently located near our properties. This Kalapaki Joes was originally scheduled to reopen in March and reasons for the delay involve the owners of that facility, their budget, the contractors and possibly the county of Kauai. We appreciate your specific suggestions for maintenance and I have shared them with both our maintenance department and our Quality Assurance Manager who works with our owners to upgrade their properties. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the grounds and the location of your beach resort and we encourage you to contact our reservation department as you plan your next visit to Poipu Beach. They can assist you with reserving the perfect condo for you and your traveling companions including the selection of one of our air conditioned beach resorts.
Sincerely,
Liz Parisi

Aloha Sam Woollard,

Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary! What a milestone! We, at Suite Paradise, are delighted to have provided you with the perfect accommodations for you and your guests. Although you do have WiFi in your resort, it is not always reliable due to our maritime climate, changing weather patterns and gusty trade winds. So we are glad to hear you were able to use the Ethernet. In the future, if you have any guests who have mobility issues, please know that Suite Paradise does have a nice selection of lovely island villas that are located on the first floor. Next time, just call us to preselect a home away from home perfect for your needs. We will be happy to assist you in the future as you plan your next visit to beautiful Kauai.

Sincerely,

Liz Parisi
