Agree with Bridget
I agree with Bridget’s review of condo 113. We stayed at 113 in the beginning of 9/2019 and her review descriptions were spot on accurate.
Air conditioning worked well with AC units installed in the kitchen and each of the bedrooms. The weather was uncomfortably hot even by the ocean so the AC at this condo was a life saver. Would highly recommend booking a unit with AC.
Location of the condos is fantastic. We walked to Queens bath from the condo which was about a 15 min walk to the start of the trail. Hideaways beach path is literally next to the pool and a few steps away from the condo unit. Hanelei is a short 5 min drive into the town.
Note that the units ending in 13 and 14 face away from Hanalei. Still a wonderful view of the ocean. 113 is the bottom unit of a 4 story unit. You need to take stairs down to reach the unit. Plenty of parking in this condo complex and a foot washing area near the entrance of the stairs by the parking lot. In the patio area, there was a storage box containing various beach gear, ice chest, and chairs to use. Although we didn’t use them, I’m sure families would appreciate these amenities.
These were not show stoppers for us but could bother some guests. Bridget’s review mentioned the broken sliding screen doors from 2018. In 9/2019, the screen doors were still not replaced or fixed in the living room. The screen doors were unusable, would not stay on the rail, would not stay shut, so we opted to just turn on the AC instead.
Some reviews mentioned the musty smell and we completely agreed with the strange smell. We tried to air out the condo but the bathrooms had a certain odor.
Unit overall is acceptable, a bit dated, and would return although I might look to rent another unit first at this condo complex before choosing 113 again.
Aloha Joseph, Thank you for your review for unit 113 at Puu Poa. Thank you for mentioning the AC amenity which is brand new and is a great feature. It is a great location and a great view! The screen doors have been worked on many times but because of the way the builder installed them years ago, it makes repairs difficult but we will have them looked at again and try to improve them. We do ask the guests to move them gingerly and it will hlep to stay on the tracks. With the new AC too the screen doors are not an issue in lots of cases. Although we have looked into it before, the AC has helped with the mustly smell but the owner is looking into it more extensively to see what might be a solution. The subterranean location is a factor but we are looking to improve where we can.
This is the perfect location with beautiful views and right above Hideaway Beach.
Trip Of A Lifetime!
This property set a great stage for the best trip our family has ever had! The owner/manager was very responsive when needed, the place a super clean and the views were to die for!
Puu Poa Condo 113
We could not have been more pleased with this unit. First, it is HUGE. Much larger than the pictures depict, especially the kitchen. The kitchen is so well stocked with everything we needed to cook. The view is spectacular. The location of the unit provides great privacy. The pool is small but appeared to be recently remodeled and was never crowded. One afternoon we had it to ourselves. We loved the location, walking distance to three great beaches and easy drive to a shopping center. I highly recommend this unit and look forward to staying again.
Our condo had a spectacular view. We were very comfortable in our condo, had an amazing kitchen , W
Very easy to rent property from the realty company, and they were accommodating when we asked for a later than usual check out.
Checking in was easy and we had several sets of keys.
Our Kauai stay
Our condo was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.
A few suggestions: My husband is disabled. It would have been nice to see ADA accommodations for entering/exiting our condo, grab bars in bathroom. Our bedroom light didn’t work, possibly burned bulb.
The kitchen was amazing! So big!
