About Don Flener
We live in Sublimity, Oregon and use our condo 2-3 times per year. Have had positive rental feedback for 7 years. Starting VRBO lisings as of 1/1/2012.
Why Don Flener chose Poipu
Most beautiful island in Hawaii. SO conveniently located with the VERY BEST of the island in the SUNNIEST location on the island.
What makes this Condo unique
Park next to your condo, four steps down to your front door! Awesome gardens at Nihi Kai. Most other locations have little or no gardens. Less than 10 minute walk to Brenneke's -ocean view dining/bar/happy hour as good as any on the island. Located across the road from Poipu Beach Park. Harley or scooter rentals for a great island tour. Golf at two courses located 5 minutes away. Or take a 20minute drive and golf ALL DAY LONG for $10/day!!! (with beautiful ocean and mountain views. Morning walks to Starbucks in the Poipu Shopping Village as you stroll the beach and gardens of resorts. Take the pedestrian walkway to the Hyatt Resort (the best resort on the island in my opinion) for nightly shows or dining. Poipu Beach ranked #1 beach in the world by some travel guides. Nice baby beach for safe swimming and snorkeling. Plus a locals and tourist favorite boogie board beach is 5 minutes from your door. Some of the best turtle and whale watching on the island straight down on the beach. Very nice on-location pool located just across the road from the ocean.

Family Vacation to Poipu
Great location and perfect size for a family of 4. Neighbors were great and the pool is really nice. Owners were very communicative and had beach stuff ready to go (e.g. towels, chairs, cooler and beach toys).
Our First place in Hawaii!
This was our first stop of our 2 week trip to Hawaii. It was unusually HOT with no trade winds. The place looks pretty much like the pictures, with plenty of places to sleep.
I can see this place being a good spot for families. The walk to the beach is far (in my opinion) especially if you're lugging beach stuff with you. There really isn't a grocery store close by so plan on having a car for sure.
The big thing is the AC unit is a rolling unit that can only air condition the Master bedroom, it's not powerful enough cool down the living quarters. So, if it's a cool time of year I can see there maybe a nice breeze and no need for AC anyway. The kitchen had everything you need to cook. I did feel the place is over priced (for us) and the oldness of it. It was the most expensive (other than the Hanalei Resort) of all the places we stayed (4 total). Only really a good deal if you're going with 2 couples or a bunch of kids, we were only 3 people so we didn't need all the room and we didn't use the kitchen.
We have now been able to add a 2nd A/C unit in the rear bedroom without overloading the electrical service.
Location was great with free parking right in front of the apartment. Don provides lots of helpful information in the booking so you don't have to bother him. He provides beach equipment for you so you don't have to rent or buy, and even the kitchen had every appliance you would need. Don is a great host and we really appreciate him.
We were here for our sons wedding and the condo was beautifully equipped with everything we needed for our three night stay.
Summer in Poipu
Excellent condo in an Excellent location. Everything was as described. There was a discount give because of construction updates at other units on the property, but there was no noise. We had an excellent time. My wife, son and his friend, and myself were all very comfortable. The unit did get quite warm during the day while we were out. But after the sun went down and with the lanai doors open and ceiling fans on the unit cooled right down and was very comfortable for sleeping. The master bed also had ac. Don't let the lack of ac dissuade you from renting. Like I said after the sun went which is like 8-8:30pm, with the trade winds and ceiling fans it was comfortable. Also helped that it is 2nd floor unit near the top of the hill, so nothing is blocking the wind off the ocean. And an awesome ocean view. The unit itself is in excellent shape and clean. The full well equipped kitchen and washer/dryer was also excellent. Very close to the beach. Had very nice somewhat challenging morning runs with the hills in the area, we live in a mostly flat area. Communication was also excellent. All I can say is if you want to stay in south Kauai, this would make a good choice.
Easy walk to the beach and the Airbnb was clean. Don was attentive to the few needs we had while there. Loved it!
