About Kathy Cannone
We have lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for 40 years and have been coming to Hawaii since 1982 to escape our cold, dark winters. We spent several years researching where we wanted our winter getaway to be located. After visiting several places, we choose Poipu, Hawaii because of the consistent weather conditions, the outdoor activities and the friendly people. We absolutely love our home in Kauai and we are excited to share it with you.
Kathy Cannone purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Kathy Cannone chose Poipu
We loved Poipu Sands because of all the beautiful green space that surrounds the complex. The feeling that you get at the Sands is one of openness. Poipu Sands sits directly near the beachfront. There is no road between the condos and the ocean.
What makes this Condo unique
Poipu Sands is uniquely located within walking distance of both Shipwreck Beach and Poipu Beach. Beautiful walking paths connect us to both beaches.

Shipwrecks Beach Condo
The rental overall was great and we would rent here again. The location is perfect and within walking distance of beaches and restaurants. I have a couple of minor complaints. The front door lock should be replaced and the tile floors were a bit sticky. I think they are sticky from the Wetjet fluid used to clean the floors not because they were dirty. Also, the pool was closed during our stay which was disappointing.
There are two pools available for use by our guests. The closest pool to our unit was temporarily closed for maintenance and cleaning. The guests were notified that the pool would not be available during their stay as soon as we were made aware of it which was approximately two weeks prior to their arrival. After discussion with the guest it turns out that the front door lock is working properly but is sticky, it will be lubricated this week. The floors are cleaned with vinegar and water prior to each guests arrival. The Wetjet is there only for the convenience of guests to use in case of a minor spill.
This is a lovely condo in the best location on Kauai! It has everything you need for a wonderful vacation! The toy closet has everything you need for the beach, the tennis court, and a bit of cleaning! Thanks Kathy, for sharing your lovely accommodation!
Clean as a whistle....top-notch (and plenty) of cookware and other kitchen utensils....excellent tropical style furniture....huge walk-in shower and plenty of counter and under cabinet space in the full bath.
Great central Poipu Beach location and obvious caring and cooperative owners.
Great location, very clean. Owner was great to work with. The had a a/c unit in bedroom and it made a big difference. Sometimes during the day when there was not much of a breeze it would get stuffy in living room/ kitchen. Had a great time. Thanks
This place was very nice and great location! Loved the AC in the bedroom and lots of good recommendations provided. Would stay here again!
Our stay at this condo
Our experience was absolutely awesome. We had everything there we needed as if you were in your own home. It was clean, nice layout. I talked to other guest staying in the complex and no-one had the" home things" you need on a daily basis. Even the nicest hotels don't have these accommodations. Close to the beach. Felt safe there. I would and have already recommended this unit for travel. Well done!! This was our first trip to Hawaii and I'm so glad we had this unit. Thank you for making our trip even more awesome...Mike
Poipu Sands is located within the upscale Poipu Kai resort area. The Poipu Kai development is located on 70 acres and extends from Poipu Beach to Shipwreck Beach. The resort is connected by a green belt that has beautiful garden paths winding through it. Poipu Sands is located adjacent to the Kauai Grand Hyatt Resort and Spa. This resort offers lush tropical grounds, casual and fine dining as well as shops and entertainment. Shipwreck Beach, located in front of the Hyatt is usually sunny and less crowded than other Poipu Beaches. This is a beautiful beach to take a romantic evening stroll and is often used as the backdrop for wedding photos. The Kiahuna Golf Course and the Poipu Bay Golf Course are both in very near proximity. The nearby tennis club offers both hard and soft surface courts. You may also enjoy a game of tennis on Poipu Sands private tennis court. Poipu Sands is the only complex within Poipu Kai that offers a private tennis court. There are several beaches located within walking distance. One of our favorite hikes in the Mahaulepu Heritage Trail which is starts just off Shipwreck Beach. We are lucky that this beautiful trail is located just outside our front door. This incredible walk leads to some secluded beaches that are usually crowd free even during the busier seasons. Poipu Beach which has been ranked as one of the top beaches in the United States is just a short 15 minute walk from our unit along the pleasant Poipu Kai green belt. This beach has both a shallow area which is excellent for swimming with small children and a great snorkeling area as well. This is a favorite spot to see napping endangered monk seals and Hawaiian sea turtles. Nearby Brenneke's Beach is considered by many to be the best boogie-boarding and body surfing beach on Kauai. Old Koloa Town is the site of the island's first sugar mill. Historic Old Koloa Town is a hub of picturesque shops, eateries, gift and souvenir emporiums. The Kiahuna Golf Course and the Poipu Bay Golf Course are located just blocks away from our unit. There are a variety of Luaus throughout Kauai including one at the Grand Hyatt Resort right next door. You may also enjoy a horse back ride along the Mahaulepu Coast line, renting a stand up paddle board to enjoy the ocean surf or dining at the large variety of nearby restaurants ranging from family fare to upscale and romantic. Take a lovely evening stroll along the green belt to Poipu Beach to enjoy the sunset then come home to enjoy dinner on your very own quiet and comfortable lanai.
