During whale season you can see whales from the lanai, and most days you can see dolphins feeding off the coast.
Everything on Kauai has three names. This location is called Makahuena Point, Turtle Cove (because of the turtles that are there all the time) and more properly, Poipu Point.
Its a small condo complex. One building, 12 units. It’s quiet and peaceful. Try to get a third floor unit since they have the best views. They have a community BBQ. A small pool. An observation deck right on the bluff. Its located in sunny Poipu, so there is a lot more sunshine here, especially in the winter where it tends to rain a lot more on the North Shore.
It is well located. A short drive to Lihue. A few miles from downtown Koloa which is an old quaint sugar town. A nice place to get Lappert's ice cream and just wander through the shops.
It is also easy to access both the North Shore and the West Shore. You can be standing on Polihale (beach) or Kee (beach) in 45 minutes to an hour, which is as far as you can drive in either direction.
It is a short walk to two beaches as it is located between Shipwreck Beach (the Hyatt) and Brenneckes Beach (Poipu Beach). We always drive, but many people walk it.
We always stay on the third floor for the great views. All the units are two-bedroom/two-bathrooms with full kitchens and washer dryer. They all have a lanai overlooking the ocean. Yes, it is true oceanfront (not beachfront). We love it because it is well located, nicely furnished and quiet. And the ocean views and sounds of the waves will just melt your troubles away.
