Poipu Sands is located on over seven acres next door to the Grand Hyatt Kauai. These vacation rentals in sunny Poipu boast expansive green areas with tropical landscaping providing you with a large open grassy space and a carefree, beach resort lifestyle while relaxing in your spacious condo. Poipu Sands and the Grand Hyatt share a gateway to the Poipu Kai greenbelt giving everyone easy access to Shipwreck Beach (Keoneloa Bay) on one end and Poipu and Brennecke`s beaches on the other.
Poipu Sands has its own swimming pool and tennis court as well as use of the Poipu Kai community swimming pool, hot tub and tennis courts. A thriving, friendly tennis community at Poipu Kai welcomes Kauai`s visitors with open arms. Several barbeque areas with comfortable sitting areas are throughout the Poipu Sands` grounds.
Stroll down to Shipwreck Beach and watch the sunrise or climb the Mahaulepu Coastal Trail, which begins just beyond the beach. This trail is a special part of the Kauai History Heritage site and the last stretch of accessible coastline on the South Shore that has not been developed. This wonderful coastal hike takes you across a variety of terrain, from small sand dunes to sandstone pinnacles and even a sinkhole cave. The area provides a safe haven for marine life, such as sea turtles and the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. The trail leads to beautiful Mahaulepu Beach, a great place to spot whales in the winter or observe (from a distance) a monk seal napping on the beach.
Next door to the Sands, you can wander around the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa`s lush tropical gardens or indulge in a reviving treatment at the world-class Anara Spa. This lovely setting lets you easily explore the natural wonders of our Garden Isle of Kauai, as well as dine at several delightful restaurants or enjoy the galleries and shops. Treat yourself to one of Kauai`s best luaus, featuring authentic dance, events and cuisine.
On the opposite side of the Hyatt, only a ten-minute walk away, is the world famous Poipu Bay Golf Course situated on 210 oceanfront acres. Challenging at all levels of play and yet fun for the novice as well, Poipu Bay hosted the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from (phone number hidden).

Amy helped to kick off our vacation on the right note. She was such a pleasure to work with! We had a limited budget and timeframe for a last minute couples trip before our baby arrives. She was incredibly responsive while steering us toward the Poipu Sands home with the rental car deal. Overall, the home itself was comfortable and we had everything we needed.
The pictures are true and the condo is conveniently located by a pool, BBQs, beach and the Hyatt property. It was nice to be able to walk these short distances while being pregnant. The car was great to have, too. There are three different shopping centers nearby to grocery shop at, eat at a variety of choices and browse through the shops. There's a fun local brewery (Kauai Beer Company) in Lihue.
There are a few things to be aware of: There's no direct light in both showers. It made it a tad hard at night to see while showering, but not impossible. I'm not sure if it's stained or was actually dirty, but the master tub's bottom and sides had dirt rings. I was looking forward to taking a bath in the big tub, but decided against it. Also, the master bedroom's slats on one window are broken (property placed a note saying that they knew about it). The unfortunate part is that there were strong winds and rain almost all week. The blinds were flapping around all night long. I finally rigged a system to keep them from slapping against the wall. Otherwise, it's a good place to stay at and a great experience!
Aloha and thank you so much for your review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the condo and the location. Thanks for letting us know about the tub and window slats. In checking with our maintenance person it seems that the repair company that serviced them is no longer on island so we have been waiting for quotes to come in from other sources. So sorry if that was an inconvenience. We are going to see if the stain on the bathtub is removable with a new product we are trying. Mahalo again for your review! We do appreciate them.
Everything was wonderful! We were provided with so many supplies and extras that helped us make it an easy trip. We loved being so close to the pool. It was great having privacy in our separate bedrooms/bathrooms. You couldn't hear a thing between floors. I would highly recommend this if you want to have access to so much recreation, shopping and the beach.
Absolutely perfect condo for a family trip to paradise! Clean, comfortable beds. Short walking distance to ocean with stunning sunrises, whale watching and sea turtles. Nice pool on the compound. We can highly recommend this place!!! Would definitely come back.
