“Great place to relax”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This was our first stay in Poipu Kai Resort. Friends who have been staying in this complex recommended it highly and we were not disappointed. It is close to the road and we did hear traffic noise, but the speed limit is 25mph, which is enforced with speed traps, so it did not bother us. The unit’s orientation allows the breeze to go right through the unit, which, along with the ceiling fans, kept the temperature pleasant. We also particularly liked the lanai view, which looked out on to green space and not on to any of the paths that crisscross the property. It was only a few steps to the very nice communal barbecue. Across the green space was a small pool; a larger pool was a five minute walk. Poipu State Park beach was a 10-15 minute walk or a five minute drive to a large county parking lot.
The unit was very spacious. We liked the tiled “mudroom” entrance hall where we could leave beach equipment and footwear; the rest of the apartment was carpeted. The furniture was sufficient and comfortable. The kitchen was adequately equipped for simple cooking and dining. All the appliances worked well. A bigger flat screen television would have made for easier viewing and the CD/stereo had no music player inputs.
We were assigned this unit on arrival. During our two week stay we looked at a number of other units in the Suite Paradise complex but were happy enough with this unit to reserve it for next year.

Aloha TripAdvisor Member,

Suite Paradise manages a sizable inventory of beach villas in Poipu Beach. Each is decorated and outfitted according to the owner's preferences and wishes. We are sorry to hear about the small roaches in the bathroom. Since Kauai is a tropical paradise, these tiny creatures can sometimes make their way inside. The homeowners association provides quarterly pest control. So seeing a pest is rare, but does occasionally happen. We have informed the association of the sighting. Our housekeeping staff is available during your stay to assist you with any issues or problems; simply give them a call. It sounds like you had a perfect condo for an enjoyable 10 days in paradise. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Sincerely,

Liz Parisi

Aloha Tom,

At Suite Paradise we strive to offer you a wonderful vacation in paradise. Our front desk contacts each and every one of our guests at the beginning of their stay to ensure that everything is in order. Unlike some home and condo rentals, our vacation rentals include starter amenities for your visit including a double set of towels and linens as well as tissues and an initial set of shampoo and soap. Suite Paradise manages a wide variety of beach condos including ones that are located on a top floor and away from our occasionally busy country road. Our reservation department would be happy to assist you in choosing the perfect vacation home for your next visit to our lovely island.

Sincerely,

Liz Parisi

Aloha Palmer,

We are happy to have you back as a return guest to Suite-Paradise's Poipu Kai Resort. It sounds like you really enjoyed the main pool and Poipu Beach. As you experienced the quick response of our maintenance department, please know that our housekeeping staff is equally responsive. Merely pick up the phone and inform our front desk and we would be happy to replace the sheets with ones that are more appropriately suited for the bed in your condo. As Kauai grows and develops, we find we have more traffic on our small country roads. We are truly sorry that this situation disrupted your nightly rest. As you know, Suite-Paradise has a large inventory of beach resorts that might better suit your vacation needs. Please do not hesitate to call one of Suite-Paradise's reservationists to help you personally select the perfect condo for your next trip to paradise.

Sincerely,

Liz Parisi
