“comfortable for two”

Lets start by saying some people are expecting more than what they pay for and if you read carefully and review the property closely you will find you do get what you paid for. People sometimes forget that most of their time is not in the places they are staying as they are out touring around and you are only there really to sleep and eat. Upon our arrival the company that managed the place gave us a welcome mai tai and offered us another unit and use of another pool because our units pool was under repair. We chose to stay and they gave us a 10% discount. Most places in poipu do not have air conditioning unless you are paying for higher end properties. The weather was most unusual for this area and the trade winds just were not happing. So it made it very hot and muggy in the unit as the fans could not provide enough cool air.The unit could use a good cleaning mostly in the carpet areas and an update in the kitchen area ie. cabinets and stovetop. They did provide a welcome bottle of wine and allowed us to use the beach equipment which was nice. The washer and dryer was great as was the ice maker.The grounds staff were pleasant and friendly and the unit was a short walk to the beach. However the people above and besides us were more than noisy with their thumping and slamming doors at 4,5,6 in the morning. There is also a lack of security as someone was walking by the bedroom window with a flashlight every morning around 5am and going through the garbage cans collecting bottles and cans. It was also noticed that on the lani the drainage pipe for the rain did not extend to the grass or in the ground but accumulated in the corner of the building causing a lot of fungus and rot. Overall the unit was comfortable and close to everything we wanted to do. We like to say thanks and would stay there again. Also we got what we paid for and want to remind people to do your homework when looking for a place to stay with the budget you are willing to spend.

Aloha livingmauitime,
Thank you for your comprehensive review. We, at Suite Paradise are happy to learn that you found your beach home to be comfortable and conveniently located as well as being a fair price for your dollar. You are quite correct in noticing our unusually hot and muggy weather this summer. As you probably understand, this humid weather was due to the very active hurricane season we just experienced. I have notified our maintenance and housekeeping departments about the carpeted areas and the drainage on the lanai. I have also shared your comments regarding the kitchen area with our Quality Assurance Manager who works with our owners on upgrades and renovations. During your next visit to our lovely, little island, don't hesitate to contact our front desk staff about any concerns you may have with noisy neighbors or trash collectors. Our staff at Suite Paradise is always willing to help you solve any problems you may experience during your stay with us. Aloha, until your next visit to paradise.
Sincerely,
Liz Parisi

“Perfect home base in Kauai”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The entire Poipu Kai resort is wonderful, so if you don't stay I'm this particular unit, check into others. Also, the 30% response rate that tripadvisor dug guests is inaccurate. My response came the same day via Suite Paradise, the company that manages the condos .

Our condo is very clean, well-equipped and in a great location. There's a long green belt pathway that takes you right to Brennecke's beach and Poipu park. Everything you need is included-- full kitchen, extra sheets/pillows, games and books, washer/dryer, beach towels and comfortable lanai.

There is a "guest services" link on their website that gives you the opportunity to arrange to have beach stuff delivered right to your condo on the day of your arrival. We got snorkel sets, boogie boards, beach chairs and an umbrella for less than many of island outfitters charge and it was DELIVERED! An awesome perk.

There's no a/c here but we didn't miss it. The ceiling fans and Hawaiian breezes keep the condo comfortable.
Beautiful pools with nice views and BBQ grills. Quiet property, beautiful landscaping.

Wifi is free and not shared. Excellent connection.

Will definitely stay here again.

Aloha RLV,

What a perfect vacation in paradise complete with frolicking whales,singing birds and beautiful flowering trees! We are happy to hear that we, at Suite Paradise, were able to give you a special lifetime experience. Most of our homes and condos in Kauai are not air conditioned because we are lucky to have our lovely, cooling tropical breezes even in the summertime. However, Suite Paradise has a limited inventory of air conditioned beach villas that are available to you. You can find this selection by clicking on the link at the bottom of our homepage. We hope to see you in lovely Poipu Beach in the near future.

Sincerely,

Liz Parsi
