“Great unit w/ excellent location”

We've stayed at many different places on both sides of Kauai over the the years , and Manualoha at Poipu Kai ranks among the best. First off you can't beat the location. Brenneke Beach is literally a three minute walk out your front door (with Poipu Beach just a few hundred yards further down the beach). If you are looking for a great happy hour, skip Brenneke's Bar and head up to Kalapaki Joe's - right up the walking path from the unit. Happy hour starts at 3:00 pm and goes until 6:00pm, with cheap drinks, $.25 chicken wings and excellent fish tacos!

As far as the unit goes, Manualoha 205 is pretty hard to beat. The unit is large - larger than you would expect from the pictures. You have a great view of the ocean from the deck, including a nice peek-a-boo of Brenneke Beach below. The kitchen is large with plenty of prep area. No shortage of pots and pans, utensils, etc. The only thing missing was a rice cooker (we like rice w/ our poke). The bedrooms are downstairs. The master is spacious, with it's own deck and bath. The 2nd bedroom is a little small, but given it's Kauai its not like you are going to spend a whole lot of time in the bedroom. Both bedrooms have their own flat screen TV's. The beds were a little lumpy, but not uncomfortably so. The unit also has a jammed packed beach closet filled with beach chairs, games, a body board, mask and snorkel.

The only two things from keeping this unit truly great are airflow (even with the tradewinds it gets a little stuffy in the living room and 2nd bedroom) and no wifi.

All in all Manualoha is a great place to stay - especially if you can get it for an off peak rate!
