Nicely kept but not ADA compliant and no lanai
First off, we enjoyed our stay in unit #6. It is an older building (70’s?) and lacks an elevator and sports steep flights of stairs. The second floor light was out making the stairway a little dicey to navigate in the dark. Unit 6 is on the top floor. It is a 9 unit small condo complex. The unit itself is quite nicely updated and was very clean. All the units in this building lack a lanai which is a big disadvantage in our book. This is barely an ocean view property. I would call it a “corridor glimpse” view. The picture on TripAdvisor is definitely a shot from a drone. The access to Poipu beach is great and a very short walk. Furnishings in #6 were fine. The kitchen inventory was substandard compared to other places we have stayed in the last 20 years. Garage parking is covered but very narrow with poles on both sides of each parking space. Lots of people have scraped their cars on these poles over the years. The space for #6 had a puddle in the exact place you stand to load/unload the trunk the whole time we were there despite raining only briefly one time. AC worked well and its setting was comfortable during our entire stay. In #6 the second bedroom did not have AC and was pretty hot. We were happy with this unit but would not stay here again . We bring a lot of dive gear and we definitely did not enjoy the stairs. If you just have a couple of suitcases though it’s likely not a problem. If you’re older or have accessibility issues, avoid this property. The picture is the view from unit #6 on the third top floor of the building.

We did not enjoy our stay.
2 stars overall, unit and property management policies combined. Description of the rental is deceiving, so, naturally we were kind of disappointed. It wasn’t bad enough to seek other accommodations, but we did not enjoy staying at this place. And in my opinion its kind of important, especially if you are staying for almost 2 weeks and have been waiting for your vacation a long time. The only newly renovated part of the condo, that we could find, is the back-splash and counters in the kitchen. The place itself was build probably in the late 80’s. There are no water views, no views of any kind, actually, just trees. No cool ocean breezes; it was super-hot. The air conditioner is useless (its one of those portable units on wheels, with a tube going out of the window. Super noisy and the coolest temperature it could produce was 83 degrees, even after running for several hours. No air conditioning in bedrooms. Plenty of fans, though, but it didn’t help much. Shower is pretty beat up and moldy. Water is either cold or hot, nothing in between, super annoying and dangerous. Water gets so hot, especially in both kitchen and bathroom sinks, I burned my hand. No warning signs posted. Bathroom door is not solid, its slotted. I guess it's to prevent moisture build up and related damage, but we found it to be uncomfortable. No privacy at all, if you know what I mean. No useful spots/racks to hang towels/clothes to dry. There are hooks all over the place, but they are useless in the humid air environment. The shared laundry room is downstairs. There are two very old commercial washers operated by coins, with no cycle regulation, one of those was out of order. We didn’t get our clothes very clean, either. There is no balcony or lanai, or deck to escape the heat of the condo. Another downside, just like with any condo, is noisy upstairs neighbors. Super loud everything in the building. The cleaning crew worked upstairs 3 times during our stay... oh, boy. Dishwasher doesn't work. We ran it and the dishes came out as dirty as they went in. Safe is broken. TV has a huge yellow strip going through the screen. We were staying for almost 2 weeks, no cleaning service is provided, except for an additional fee and if requested prior to arrival. The overall cleanliness of the unit in my opinion is 3. Dirt and dust collected in corners and under beds, mold in the shower, sticky floors, kitchen sink looks awful. A few cockroaches, but it’s the tropics… At first we didn’t find any cleaning tools, like brooms or mops, and bought one. Those are kept in the narrow closet behind the fridge. There was a broom and a vacuum cleaner, but no mop. The garbage bin is just outside, but you have to take recycling to the recycle site nearby. The day before our departure we received an email from the property management asking us to sweep the floors, run the dishwasher and take the garbage out before leaving. We paid $185 per night for all this joy.
