A relatively early start for us this morning as we had to be out the door by 8am to make our way to Safari Heli Tours for our trip around the island. After a few anxious moments we managed to find the place just in time. We were met by our host Sherrell who is a great guy and a real character. He has obviously been around and has plenty of good …
We were greeted by another cracker of a day when we woke up this morning. The morning was largely uneventful, and was primarily spent packing for the plane flight to Kauai. We checked out of the Ourigger and arrived at the Hawaiian Airlines terminal early. After checking in via the impressive fully automated system we made our …
... that lived on this site hundreds of years ago. The archeologists are now trying to excavate and rebuild what was once there. We weren't allowed to wander off the paths or explore on our own, as it is a sacred site. Only three companies have permits to visit this area and they are very particular about the preservation.
It was now time to head back. Since our sickies were still looking green, they again ...

I am not exaggerating when I say there were hundreds upon hundreds of cascading falls at every turn. This area we were flying over is the wettest place on earth. It rains around 500 inches a year up in these valleys an all that rain creates the most beautiful sight I have ever seen. The flight ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Poipu Kapili
This was our first trip to Hawaii, and we made the choice to not stay at a hotel. Our unit(#25) had a direct view of the ocean looking over the pool. There were a few units undergoing renovation, but the work crews kept the noise as low as possible, and started work AFTER 9:00 every morning.
We had the pleasure of staying at Poipu Kapili and are looking forward to our next vacation there. Our condo was a very spacious 2-story unit facing the ocean. It was clean, cheery and bright - we loved having morning coffee and evening cocktails on our patio while gazing out at the ocean. What a truly peaceful, yet spectacular (glorious sunsets) way to spend the beginning and end to a day. Not only that, if you don't want to spend a lot of time eating out, the herb garden is a delight - it was fun cooking with fresh, fragrant ingredients!
We loved this place! We paid a little extra for a premium one-bedroom condo (Unit 22) and it was fantastic. Beautiful from top to bottom. It is one of the few one-bedroom units that also had a washer and dryer. Great little touches too. Such things as real towels and couple of cd's of Hawaiin music that we certainly enjoyed on the stereo. Full kitchen and a Sub Zero refrigerator that I think I will soon be buying for my own home.
I experienced the Poipu Kapili in Kauai, and was delighted with the quality of the complex. This quite Luxury Condo complex is a great place to relax. The condo was nicely decorated, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The housekeeping staff does an excellent job keeping everything impeccably clean and in working order.
The high speed Internet access was definitely an asset.
The grounds are neatly manicured and add to the ambiance. The friendly front desk staff made sure that my stay there was the best.
The ocean view was splendid. Several beaches are within waking distance for swimming, surfing, and other water sports. The pool has an ocean view. All in all it is a well-maintained property that I found quiet and relaxing.
We just returned from Kauai - 4 days on the north shore, 4 days on the south shore. I used trip advisor and some other resources (i.e. guidebooks) to decide on Poipu Kapili. Here is what we thought:
Bit of heaven
Poipu Kapili was beautiful. We went for our 25th anniversary Our condo looked out over the pool directly to the ocean. The unit was furnished very well. All the amenities. Had a wonderful time. Only complaint was the roosters crowing waking us up. The grounds are maintained to perfection.
Nice place but needs A/C
The condo was wonderful - it had everything. However, it was very humid and the fans just didn't cool the room to our satisfaction. I know that A/C is a high commodity in Hawaii, but if you can't take the heat and humidity, I would recommend a nice hotel.
My husband and I stayed at the Poipu Kapili in March 2004 and I have to say it was the nicest condo we have ever stayed in (and we've stayed in several over the years). We truly felt we were living in paradise - we could have stayed forever. We had a beautifully decorated 1 bedroom ocean view condo (#21) which is situated in Building 4. The condo is very spacious (roughly 1200 sq. ft). When you walk in, you enter a very large living and dining area. Right outside the living room is the huge lanai w/table and chairs with a gorgeous view of the ocean and the grounds. When you step out the lanai, the fresh-water pool is on the left with lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas - there is also a charcoal grill. To the right of the lanai are the tennis courts, the gas grill and a few steps away is the laundry room (only 2 bedroom units have laundry) with 3 washers and 3 dryers (never had to wait to use). There is a nice size kitchen with all the modern appliances for your use. There are huge closets in the hallway with beach chairs, coolers, etc. Down the hall on the left is a very spacious bathroom w/tub. Next to that is the master bath with shower. The master bedroom is big with huge closets and sliding glass doors. We really felt at home during our stay. At the registration office there is a video library along with books to read during your stay and the staff is always friendly on offering tips on what to see and do while on the island.
Poipu Kapili is like living in paradise. The suites are beautifully furnished and spacious. The grounds were immaculate with beautiful surroundings. Best of all, the Kapili is a nice quiet place to relax and unwind. We are definitely going to stay there again the next time we travel.
The oceanfront 2 bedroom suites are the best.
We stayed at the Poipu Kapili and it is by far one of the
nicest condos in Kauai. We stayed in a 2 bedroom superior condo with two stories. The condo was large and very nicely furnished. It is located right next door to the Sheraton, which has a great beach and snorkeling. The only drawback to this place is they were constantly leaving notes on our door that they were doing maintenance - first they wanted to paint the outside of the condo and then they wanted to come in and clean the windows. They shoould only be doing maintenance when the unit is empty.
