Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Why Joe Greulich chose Koloa
I very much enjoy spending time in Hawaii, and especially like Kauai at Poipu.
What makes this Condo unique
I wake early and sit with my first cup of coffee on the lanai to watch the sun rise over the bay. I love the early morning and always plan to walk along the water. It is peaceful and quiet. The scent of the flowers fills the air as the day is awakening. A short walk brings me to the National Botanical Gardens and then to Spouting Hole just beyond. By the time I return the boats of fishing enthusiasts and snorkelers are beginning to make their journey into open waters, sun bathers are finding the perfect spot on the beach, and I am looking forward to my day of exploring Paradise.

Water Cove on the ocean
Wonderful condo, water cove views, snorkeling in cove with turtles and fish. Beautiful morning sunrises and evening sunsets. Activities galore!!! Roosters and hens all over and beautiful.
Nice clean place to stay with a good location on the island. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.
Overall good experience
Loved the location, have stayed at Kuhio shores before. The reason I'm giving 4 stars is because the last night there we woke up to our bed full of bugs. Not sure what they was. I caught three between some tape for housekeeping to see. We made sure trash was taken out and only cooked once in the condo. I emailed the owner at two different email address, plus left the tapped up bugs with a note. I haven't heard anything back. I understand bugs come with the tropics. I just didn't want the next guest to encounter this. So overall the condo was good. Could stand some up keep and up dating.
Thank you for your review. We did contact our cleaning crew and addressed the pest situation, I apologize for not communicating that back to you. We understand as beautiful as Kauai is, the humidity and warm temperatures come with pests. We do have the unit treated regularly and after hearing from you, had them come immediately. We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced and hope still enjoyed your stay.
A good location, with a great view of the ocean, and the amenities of the condo were great, especially the AC in the bedroom, with a comfortable bed for sleeping!
Perfect Poipu Paradise for Two
My husband and I just returned from a one-week stay at the Greuliches wonderful condo on the water's edge in Poipu, Kauai. There aren't enough words to describe what a perfect home base it is for a blissful stay on the magical Garden Island! Here are a few reasons why you should run, not walk, to book this rental for your Hawaiian vacation:
You absolutely can't beat the location if you're planning on staying on Kauai's sunnier South Shore. The condo is located next door to the popular Beach House Restaurant, which we quickly learned is THE place to be each evening to watch the most spectacular sunsets you've ever seen. You can order a drink from Beach House and enjoy it on their enclosed area of the lawn, or make your own drink and take a seat on the condo's grassy side with your new neighbors. As a bonus, you'll enjoy watching the weddings taking place at the restaurant (4 out of the 7 nights we were there!) and surfers going back in for one more wave.
Views, Views, Views!
When I think about the views from the Greuliches condo, I'm almost moved to tears when I remember walking in for the first time and seeing the view. This condo is located in the corner of the third floor (there are both stairs and an elevator - we took the stairs when we'd eaten too much spam musubi!), which means you sit at the perfect position to enjoy incredible vistas immediately below of blue ocean and gently rolling waves as far as the eye can see. We woke up just before sunrise each morning to take in the view - you're treated to some truly spectacular sunrises from the comfort of your private lanai and living room here.
Comfortable and Clean
We were pleasantly surprised to discover a very comfortable bed and pillows on the queen bed in the bedroom. We kept the windows open slightly each night to hear the soothing sounds of the island. To say we had blissful, restful sleep would be an understatement! The rest of the condo is very neatly appointed with tasteful island-themed decor. It looks and feels like somewhere a happy family would stay. We loved it!
Fully Stocked with All Your Hawaiian Vacation Needs
It was such a treat to discover beach chairs, towels and a cooler in the living room by the bookcase. We made good use of all of them! In the bathroom, there is a hair dryer and other hair tools. There are also oodles of books, including guides of the island, a puzzle, movies, and more.
We loved staying here and will definitely be back! Mahalo nui loa!
Just As Described
This unit is well equipped and furnished, and quite comfortable. A few more beach towels and a beach umbrella would have made it complete.
The owners were very responsive to inquiries. One issue we noticed on arrival, was resolved the next day.
This unit looks out on the "bay side" of the water, but we preferred this view.
It is very close to the main road however and traffic sounds are constant from dawn to dusk, but quiet down considerably (not completely) during the nighttime.
Mostly we enjoyed the sounds of the ocean and the views from the lanai.
The complex is well maintained and clean, with adequate parking for all guests. There was occasional daytime noise of renovations in adjacent units. But we were out most of the day. One disadvantage for us was the fact that the shared bar-b-q sits quite a way from this 3rd floor unit making nightly cooking a bit of an extra chore. It was always sparkling clean, though.
Warning!! Avoid parking overnight under the palm trees if possible as they are inhabited at night by hordes of parrots that leave a mess on cars....
A favourite activity is bringing a lawn chair and beverage onto the ocean side grounds of the complex to watch the breathtaking sunsets. Here you sit adjacent to the Beach House Restaurant so appy's, drinks, and music are not far away. Units close to this side of the complex are sometimes bothered by late night parties and music.
We have come often to Kauai and we prefer staying in the Poipu area as we find it convenient to most of the attractions on the Island that we enjoy; good places to eat, great snorkelling beaches, nightly entertainment, handy food shopping, clothing boutiques, and, of course, "shave ice".
