We spent our honeymoon here and enjoyed our stay immensely! It was the perfect place to stay in and made a great home base for our adventures around the island. We especially enjoyed our lanai and spent many of our nights out there eating dinner and taking in the weather.

The location in Poipu crater is excellent. It's about a 12-15 minute walk to Poipu Beach park. The place has a very comfortable vibe given that it's on the slope of a crater, so the back side of the unit is well above ground despite entering the front door on ground level. (You feel like you are in a treehouse when in the living room and out on the lanai.) There are also very high ceilings throughout the unit. It is also quite spacious, with in unit laundry. (The listing itself doesn't clarify whether the laundry is in unit -- it is.) The bedroom is on the second floor, so it will get hotter up there, but the window A/C is sufficient to cool the room down at night. The living room, kitchen, and 2nd lower level bedroom are naturally cooler due to air flow. The only issue we had with the unit was an insect issue in the kitchen (Ants inside the wood in the ceiling were kicking debris down onto the floor and range top, which we had to clean up each day.). We reported this to the property manager and they were very responsive in calling in pest control for a fix, and they also comp'ed part of the stay for the inconvenience. We left with good vibes about the place and would stay here again.

Feels like a treehouse with birdsong all around.

by Marcia Loughran
Jungle vibe with fun wicker and floral design furniture, this duplex has a large kitchen and nice “lanai” or covered deck. Feels like a treehouse with birdsong all around. Very safe little community in shelter of overgrown crater, easy walk to beach. I had the 50’s vibe pool to myself!

Fantastic location !

by Jason Brumm
Poipu Crater is in a fantastic location walking distance to beautiful beaches where you can see turtles and seals relaxing on the sand mornings and evenings. The Lanai was a wonderful place to enjoy breakfasts and dinners while enjoying the lovely view of surrounding flowering trees and vegetation.

The location is outstanding and quiet

by Viviane Bouché
The location is outstanding and quiet . The trees surrounding the lanai/deck make one feel as if in a tree house.The property manager's responsiveness and flexibility were excellent. The welcome gifts were a nice touch. The provided amenities (washer and dryer, coolers, beach chairs and umbrella, boogie board etc) were most appreciated. We recommend this property and would definitely stay there again.

Everything feels very quiet and private.

by Imran Rahman
This is a great apartment for visiting Poipu. Everything feels very quiet and private. It's about a 10 to 15 minute walk to Poipu beach. The pool is just down the hill in the complex. The upstairs can get quite hot but an AC was provided. The kitchen is well stocked.

Very central location with lots of adventures in the surrounding area!

by Caroline Plaza
Very nice Airbnb in a very central location with lots of adventures in the surrounding area! The bnb is very well stocked with washer/dryer (& pods!), dishwasher (& pods!), coffee maker, speaker, ice cooler, beach chairs, boogie boards, ample space to eat hang out and rest on. The lanai was amazing and we spent most of our time outside on it. Listening to the rain or having breakfast at the lanai is a must. The kitchen is very well stocked for any person that likes to cook!

Amazing

by Kim Rock
My family and I LOVED this unit and Poipu Crater as a whole. The unit is big, the lanai is amazing and so private. The landscaping around the pool was beautiful and made it easy to spend hours there while my daughter played in the water. Would definitely stay here again.

by Norman Andrews
Because of the crater nature the sound between units was very audible especially when on the lanie.

Great townhome

by Rebecca Sue Crane White
The townhome at Poipu Crater was great. The lanai was so quiet: perfect place to eat breakfast and to have a cold drink after a full day. I would love to come back.

Great Stay

by Adair Hobson
We enjoyed this spacious townhouse, especially the big private lanai. It was a great location to explore the south coast. The unit was clean and comfortable had what we needed for our stay. The property manager was very responsive and helpful and promised to look into a couple of issues we had with appliances. One little disappointment for me with aging joints, which I should have realized as it's in a "crater" - it's quite steep to walk down to the pool area and amenities area.

Beautiful place to stay and only minutes from Poipu Beach

by Jolene Smith
We really loved this condo, the unit is clean, up to date and surrounded by beautiful gardens and trees. The lanai is totally private thanks to the trees around it. The kitchen had everything we needed however there was only salt, pepper and a bit of olive oil so be sure to bring your own condiments and spices. We loved our welcome basket full of pineapple, coffee, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, passion fruit jelly and biscuits! We felt very welcomed! The only reason I didn’t give this place 5 stars is because the master bed could use a new mattress. Other than that we loved our week here and would stay again!

Excellent location and condo in Poipu

by Justin Monti
This condo was fantastic. The lanai was huge, the kitchen was huge, the living room was huge, the bedrooms were huge, the bathrooms were pretty huge! Everything about this condo was great. Three cons: One, or both, of the screen doors out to the lanai were in somewhat rough shape when it came to opening and closing. This is a pretty easy fix to be made, so I'd expect there are plans to have it repaired or replaced. The second is that the fan in the living room was pretty slow and didn't do much of anything it seemed. It was fine for us in mid-November as the temperature was cool, but during a hot day it would probably be more uncomfortable to be in the living room. The fan in my bedroom worked great though, and worked so well that I had to turn it off the last few nights I stayed there because it got so cold! The third is the location. Poipu beach is pretty close by, but other than that, there's not much within walking distance. This isn't really a huge "con", because things in Kauai are pretty spread out, but if you want to come here and have restaurants and shops within walking distance, Poipu isn't the best place to stay. Poipu is great because there is very little rain annually, as compared to Princeville and Hanalei, but those two towns have a lot more things to do when it comes to shopping and eating out. We found two or three dead cockroaches, but I've seen people make complaints about them. Cockroaches aren't that big of a deal, they can carry diseases but are mostly completely harmless. Of course cockroaches can indicate a dirty home where there is trash and food left out, but I can assure you the condo was pretty clean aside from some tough-to-reach dust and dirt behind the beds, refrigerator, and furniture. It's because of the location of the condo; it's in the tropics of Kauai. So while people equate roaches with uncleanliness, it's more than likely it's due to the environment in this case. Overall, this condo was well worth our money and time. We would gladly stay here again!

The place is so lovely.

by Katherine Hall
We had a great experience staying with Elite - there was good communication before and during the trip and the place is so lovely. You get to hear birds on the lanai in the morning and it's a 10 minute walk to the beach. Plus, they provided us with delicious coffee and chocolates. Would stay here again 🙂

A super place for a family vacation.

Convenient and Quiet for a Family of 4

by Jason Daughenbaugh
It was surprisingly quiet in this condo. No ocean view, but withing walking distance of Poipu beach, Shipwreck's beach, the Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail, Brennecke's, and more. (But we often drove anyway rather than carry snorkel gear, lawn chairs, cooler, etc.) The crater is also so close to the end of Ala Kinoiki road that the location is very convenient and central for day trips to anywhere on the island.

Peaceful fun and friendly vacation rental

by Heather Gutierrez
Our family really enjoyed staying at the crater. It was peaceful and the neighbors were friendly. We met a nice retired couple who took my husband and boys golfing each week. My boys and l enjoyed swimming in the pool - most of the time we had it all to ourselves:) the condo was clean and has a well stocked kitchen. There was a portable air conditioner in the upstairs master but we never used, it cool off in the evenings enough to sleep comfortably. Also we enjoyed the 10 -15 minute walk to the beach in the evening to watch the sunset, monk seals and sea turtles. Our host Bryan was great! He was very responsive to our text. We would definitely stay here again.,

Very accommodating host!

by Jennifer Murray
We were delightfully surprised with a welcome basket! The host met us at the property and gave us a tour and instructions. It was very personable and accommodating to our schedule. Very impressed! Loved having a washer and dryer and the lanai made you feel like you were up in a tree house. The walk to the beach was a little longer than we expected so we drove there but the pool was nice to jump in and the ping-pong table came in handy on a rainy day.

Very easy and comfortable place to stay.

by Barry Oliver
My wife and I and our two kids had a wonderful time....very comfortable and spacious and the staff was awesome getting us checked in and the facilities had all we needed...the pool, tennis court and ping pong table were an added bonus on top of everything else....all that we would have liked better would be thicker walls between neighbors and some A/C but everything else was excellent. Great location!

Cute condo unit

by Chisako T
Walking distance to Poipu beach, great price / night for a couple or family and friends. Having breakfast in the open air porch, great way to start or end a perfect day in paradise . Felt like a tree house, just minutes to the beach, for sure coming back.

Charming Poipu Crater townhouse was a winner!

by Elfriede Burke
We were so happy with our townhouse in the Poipu Crater on Kauai. We were met by a lovely representative of the company in charge of the rental. She gave us a quick tour and presented us with a lovely gift basket which included some great coffee beans! The place was clean and well stocked with necessities. We were withing walking distance of the Poipu beaches and the pool in the crater was a lovely place to take a dip and just enjoy the beautiful plants and birds of the island. The family all enjoyed the ping pong table! and we took advantage of the grill by the pool to cook up some nice teriyaki chicken for dinner. Although the crater townhouses are maybe not so new, there is a definite charm to the little group nestled in the crater. So much character! Sitting out on the lanai in the morning, having coffee, was like being in a tropical aviary. Truly an enjoyable experience all around. The management in charge of the rental were quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. Highly recommend!

Awesome Vacation!! Amazing Location & Great Deal!

by Janel P
We really enjoyed the location of the condo! So close to the beach and great places to eat. I couldn't believe we got such an amazing price! The condo was perfect for our group of four with everything we needed. The property manager was waiting for us when we arrived and surprised us with a really nice gift basket. We are really into healthy eating so Bryan recommended for us to check out living foods and the farmers market which was pretty awesome! We will definitely be back next year!
