Oceanfront Home with Free WiFi, Deck, AC, Private W/D, Pool Access - Near Beach

Why just sit by the ocean, when you can sit over the ocean on a spacious lanai? Poipu Shores 101B’s huge outdoor lanai, which is shared with the next-door condo, is the prime spot for the whole ohana (family) to watch the sea turtles swimming through the blue waters of the Pacific. When you are ready to put your feet in the sand, Poipu and Brennecke Beaches are just a quick five-minute walk away from fun in the sun.

This first-floor property is outfitted with high-end furnishings, including amazing art pieces made by local artists. An open floor plan creates an airy and bright atmosphere.

Put your feet up on the couch, flipping through the channels on the flatscreen TV. The fully-equipped kitchen features handsome cherry cabinets and granite counters, plus all the basics for whipping up meals and snacks.

Tasteful tropical beach décor in greens and blues lulls you into a relaxed state in the bedroom, while the king bed assures you’ll get a good night’s sleep. The bedroom also has a mirrored closet, a flatscreen TV, and an en-suite bathroom with granite counters and tub and shower combination.

Why We Love This Home

Pacific Ocean Front and Center: You can’t get more oceanfront than this! The condo sits right on the shore, with a roomy lanai that actually stretches over the water. Shared with the condo next door, the 500-square-foot lanai has plenty of seating for watching the sea turtles play below. During the winter months, you'll also get to watch the humpback whale migration.

Air-Conditioning: Both the living room and bedroom have to air-condition for those extra steamy Hawaiian days when the ocean breezes can't cool you down.

Gorgeous Pool: When you need a break from the sand and the salt, head to the pretty heated pool sitting right over the water. In the evenings, gather with your fellow guests in the grassy area next to the pool to watch the spectacular sunsets.

Grab the towels, umbrellas, and beach chairs, and take a short five-minute walk to Brennecke Beach, a hot spot for turtle watching and bodyboarding. A large grassy area with picnic tables and covered pavilions connect Brennecke to popular Poipu Beach. Along with snorkeling, swimming, and surfing, Poipu Beach also has a small baby beach protected from the waves that are perfect for kids.

This property is managed by Vacasa Hawaii.

Parking Notes: Parking lot allows 1 car per condo and requires a pass. The parking pass will be in your condo when you arrive, please hang it over your rearview mirror.

If you want an incredible view, hearing the ocean waves smashing onto the rocks below, and you want to enjoy seeing sea turtles frolicking on the waves, then this is a great place to stay.

Go to sleep with the sound of the ocean. Love the sound. An amazing location; about a half mile east of Brennecke’s in Po’ipu,Kaua’i. It has a balcony (shared with only one neighbor) over a small cove with waves rolling in continuously. And then when you peer over the balcony rail … watch the sea turtles feed, diving for algae on the rocks, coming up for air, moving with the swells and waves. A comfortable 1 bedroom with a near-full kitchen (lacks only an oven). A small dining table, but you will be entertaining and eating on the large balcony. A bath and a half. TVs in both rooms, with cable channels. Great Vacation Resorts! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Wonderful location and comfortable stay! We had everything we needed for our stay, including beach chairs and towels. Very close to the beach, and amazing view of turtles right off the balcony every day. The unit is a bit old, but we were still comfortable throughout our trip.

The location was PERFECT!!!!!! PERFECT!! I love falling asleep to the sound of the waves and love waking up every morning and running outside to look for the sea turtles!! The airBnB came with beach towels and beach chairs which we used every day. They also had a birthday balloon and some beer for my husband since I mentioned this was a birthday trip for him. I really appreciate that thoughtful gesture! I can’t wait to come back and stay here again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great location with unreal views. We enjoyed many sunrises and sunsets on the balcony and in the pool. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Excellent place we would absolutely recommend. When I read the reviews I was excited to see the sea turtles but only half way believed they would be there. Sure enough, saw them within 5 minutes of arriving and then could see all 3 of them just about any point of the day, everyday, for the week we were there. We also saw humpbacks from the Lanai 2 nights ago while watching the sunset. If views, ocean sounds and sea life are top criteria this place can’t be beat. Everything else was great, the place was clean, AC and internet worked well and they had a boogie board that we could use. The heated pool was also really nice place to end each day. Close drive to Poipu for snorkeling and Brenecke’s for boogie boarding, we will absolute being staying here on our next trip to Kauai! Thanks for a great place!

We enjoyed our stay and loved falling asleep every night to the sounds of crashing waves. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Beautiful condo directly on the ocean with sea turtles visible directly below the deck and whales breaching 200 yards off shore everyday of our stay. Very clean condo and easy to check in based on efficient on line manager. Thanks This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Excellent place overlooking the ocean, no kidding, the ocean is 10 steps away from the bed. It is great if you enjoying listening to pounding waves sounds at night; it is loud and never stops. The unit shares a huge porch with another unit. It is an excellent place to watch sunset and sunrise. Convenient location, ~10 minutes walk to Brennecke beach.

The condo at Poipu was very serviceable- the kitchen had all the equipment we needed for our stay. The decor was very nice, and the location, perched above the rocky beach, was really picturesque. We saw several turtles swimming as we had a drink on the deck! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Wonderful location. Beautiful lanai overlooking sea turtle cove. Walking distance to Poipu. Car was a wonderful addition. Great value! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We just finished a 6 night stay at this property. The oceanfront room cannot be beat, we saw sea turtles swimming in the ocean right below our deck at all hours of everyday. The deck is shared with the unit next door but we spent plenty of time out there by ourselves. The pool is just steps away and accessible by room key- the pool was never too busy and at times we even had it to ourselves. The proximity to activities was great too, Poipu Beach isn’t far at all along with great restaurants and shopping nearby. As for the condo itself, the bed was comfortable but being oceanfront - we did see some bugs, we expected this though. It was extremely hot and humid when we were there so we were grateful for the air conditioning which worked great throughout the condo - especially the bedroom. We never had issues with parking either. Overall, an amazing stay for us- we felt we lucked out with the views and location. Would definitely recommend !

The view is breath taking! All amenities provided, nothing missing. Air conditioning and a nice living room and kitchen area! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great location - can`t beat a place right above the water! The view and sounds of the ocean are spectacular. The place itself is dated as stated in other reviews. I find that most apartments in Hawaii have older appliances and furniture which you just have to deal with.

AMAZING VIEW!!!!!!! If you think the photos are amazing wait until you see it in person. Easy check in process as all we had to do was open the lock box to get the key. It was a little tricky getting it to work at first but once we got the hang of it it was fine (you have to turn the key and handle at same time to open) Nice space, enough for 2 to comfortably relax. The entire space is tiled, so you have to be careful if the floor gets wet. You do step down intro the bedroom/ main bath areas. Kitchen had everything we needed. There are gas grills in a common area we also used. The shower had plenty of hot water and water pressure. It also had shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There were bottles of liquid soap at each sink and the bathroom vanity also had lotion. Good island scent, I loved it. The vanity is outside the bathroom, which was nice for getting ready. The bed was comfortable with plenty of bedding. The washer and dryer were very handy and easy to use. There are a few cleaning supplies in case you want to clean up since you don`t have daily service. The air conditioning worked so well we would get cold. They have a nice binder of information on the table. The view is stunning. The `private` lanai is shared with the condo next door. We were fortunate to have good neighbors. They were very nice and we were never really on the lanai at the same time. We saw many sea turtles from the lanai. You will go to sleep listening to waves crashing. The pool is nice, also private as you`ll need your key to gain access. The water was warm and clean. There is a common place that has a few tables that looks out over the pool. It`s a covered space and I`m sure if you are traveling with a larger group you could use it for dinner together. There are also recycle bins in that space. WARNING - the parking was a bit stressful. Because this resort is right on the water it`s also down the hill. Parking is tight. If you don`t need rent a large vehicle don`t because that will make parking worse. A compact car would be easiest. There are 3 levels of parking with a loading/ unloading spot at the lowest level (along with handicap space). My other warning, you have to take several steps to get to this condo. There is an elevator in the building but not to this space. The hosts were prompt answering both emails before we landed on the island and text messaging once we checked in. Easy check out process. Follow their directions for the room and lock the key back in the box. Overall it is a very nice space with plenty of room (dresser, hangers in closet). They had beach gear we never ended up using. The view alone is worth the stay. I would stay here again if I came back to Kauai. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The ocean front view and huge lanai of this unit can not be beat. A big part of making our vacation wonderful was the ability for us to sit out on the lanai and enjoy breakfast and dinner while watching the waves and turtles. It was also extremely amazing to have the cost of a rental car included with our stay. Great Vacation Retreats has been a great host for our 4 day stay in Poipu and I admired their effort in making sure that our stay was a great one. We had a minor issue with our air conditioning in the living room and after shooting them a text message, they were very quick and consistent in finding a solution for us. The only down side to this property is that the unit is a bit runned-down and there is absolutely no cell reception once you are inside.

Wonderful stay, beautufil view of the crashing waves and turtles! :) Thank you! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

You can’t beat the view for 101B! It’s even more magical than the photos portray. The host was available for communication throughout the stay! Even when our flight delay had us arriving at 12 midnight (8hr delay) to the Lihue airport our car was still waiting at the car rental office. If the pricing is right for you, book your stay here for sure! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Communication was quick, polite, and extremely helpful. Rental car was a big plus - we upgraded to a convertible and the team made the process easy. Last but not least, the views from this unit are incredible! Mix that in with an easy check-in (we got in late around 2am), and a very clean unit, we could not have asked for a better place to stay in Kauai!

We stayed in this unit over spring vacation. Amazing location with turtles just over the deck, saw whales breaching, a group of dolphins, monk seal all just off the deck. We truly stayed in the unit a lot of our time. The king bed was very comfy but not the living couch or furniture. The condo was well equipped which was nice. Would stay here again but hopefully they will get a new tile floor! Owner`s Response: Mahalo, Curt and Lynn, for your feedback!!

We had such a lovely time in the Apparrment. When we first arrived we were totally blow away by the view! The first thing we saw looking out off our balcony was turtles. So amazing. The apartment was great and had everything we needed for our stay. Good location, nice and close to everything there is to do. Amazingly comfortable bed also! We would 100% stay again.

强烈推荐所有来可爱岛的中国人来这里体验几天,这是一处套房,起居室和卧室都是面临海岸,由一条私密小路进入,有一个与唯一邻居共享的大型观景露台,但互不影响,因为他们喜欢在中午太阳最高的时候呆在户外,中国人受不了,看日落最棒,随手一拍就是明信片。低头可看随波逐流的大海龟和在礁石上跳跃的螃蟹,抬头遥望白点点帆,运气好时还有成群跳跃的海豚,波涛声只能帮助你更好的入睡...总之,都是电影里的画面,物有所值。 This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Quiet south shore locale with spacious private lanai and fantastic views along the coast - on a good day you can see Nihau. There are turtles in the water just below the lanai, and whales (Jan), dolphins, etc putting on a show plus the heated pool with same great view literally steps away and a short 5 min walk off property to a great beach spot to swim/snorkel. These are the reasons to visit this property. The actual unit was comfortable although interior is dated and could use a facelift. The lack of an oven was minor inconvenience. Cable was glitchy but then you don’t come to Kauai to watch tv. The rental car arrangement rounds out the package. This was a return visit to this same unit from our last trip out and we were very happy to be there. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Owner`s Response: Aloha Kevin, Thank you for choosing Great Vacation Retreats, once more! It has been a pleasure in helping making your stay on Kauai a memorable one, again. We understand that the exterior of Poipu Shores is not quite on par with the interior of the condos, but we`re glad that did not deter you from enjoying the property and it`s amenities! We hope you make a return to Kauai, soon. We`ll be looking forward to it! Mahalo! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

You must stay at 101B Condo - this place was truly amazing. It was very clean, GREAT location to nearby beaches, snorkeling, food, and local attractions and we had all the amenities we needed. We woke up every morning, ate breakfast on the private deck/balcony and watched the sea turtles right outside the door to the condo - pure happiness and awe inspiring! The hospitality was warm and inviting and Great Vacation Retreats`s were so responsive with communication.

The view is spectacular. We loved sitting out on the lanai. We saw about 5 turtles, stings and dolphins from the lanai. You are walking distance to the beach which was nice. The ac was broken when we arrived but the hosts were on top of it and had it fixed in no time. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great location by the sea. Turtles, whales and close to Poipu beach. The only negative is the sound of the waves hitting the rocks outside the windows made getting to sleep a challenge and early rise when the sun came up due to the bamboo blinds.
