Upscale beachfront condos offer space and privacy in lively Poipu
Spread across 70 acres of gardens and manicured lawns in the Poipu resort area, Aston at Poipu Kai is an enclave of luxury condominiums, townhouses, and private homes. Walkways wind past pools edged by graceful palms and down to two Poipu beaches. Aston vacation units are located in five upscale communities within Poipu Kai and include one- to three-bedroom condo suites and three-to four-bedroom private homes. While each community has its own recreation facilities -- pool, barbecues, and the like -- all enjoy easy beach access and upscale details.
Highlights
  • Luxury condominiums with ample room and all the bells and whistles
  • Walk-out access to two excellent beaches
  • Pools and tennis courts
  • Wi-Fi in lobby area
Location
Historic Koloa and the Poipu resort area lie on the south coast of Kauai, one of the island's most popular vacation destinations. There are a slew of gorgeous beaches, every waterfront activity, superb golf, historic and natural sites, and enough eclectic shops and restaurants to satisfy every taste. Aston at Poipu Kai is within steps of all of it, yet a tranquil retreat from the action, too.
Rooms
Suites and homes at Aston at Poipu Kai are individually furnished and decorated but most exude tropical warmth and offer a wealth of upscale touches. All include full kitchen, in-room washer and dryer, and complimentary Internet access.
Dining
Some individual communities within the resort have barbecue grills for guests to use. Poipu offers extensive options for eating out, from take-out Hawaiian plate lunches to upscale fine dining.
Recreation
While the various communities at Aston at Poipu Kai each have their own features, the entire community offers six pools, two whirlpools and nine tennis courts. The property fronts two of Poipu's favorite beaches, Brennecke's, popular with boogie boarders, and Shipwreck Beach, where adventure romance "Six Days/Seven Nights" was filmed. A winding trail lures walkers and runners for a workout.

Amenities

Aston has a $15 daily non optional charge not included in the quoted price. This is the second Aston we've stayed at that has hidden charges. The one in Maui charged for parking. This one in Kauai charged for newpapers, videos, daily trash pick-up and clean towels. We don't mind, if told up front.

Comfortable and pleasant setting

The condo we rented was fairly large, clean and comfortable situated in well kept grounds with lush trees that made it feel very Hawaiian. We appreciated the kitchen which had everything you might need and the maid service which was limited to clean towels every day and clean sheets every few days. It was a short pleasant walk to the beach and to the gorgeous cliffs just past the Hilton. For such a reasonable price you couldn't ask for more.

Good for the money

This is a good place to stay for the amount you pay, especially for a family of four. The stay would have been more pleasant if the unit had airconditioning. Also, the front desk staff is available only between 7:00am to 8:00pm. The hotel is a bit away from the beach, having a rental car helps. Over all, we did not mind the shortcoming since we were out sightseeing most of the time and only came back to the unit at night.

Upscale Ordinary

The staff were great. The grounds were nicely kept. The room could use an update. Great walking paths. The pools were very clean. The only real complaint I have is ants in the kitchen.

Loved this island

The reviews for this condo varied so we were nervous about what to expect. We had 4 adults and 1 child. Overall we were pleased with the room and location. The condo was older but well maintained. Our flight was delayed so our check in was late but was able to check in with the night security. Nice place to stay for the money. Would stay here again.

A real pleasure

Exceeded our expectations. Golfing was a 3 minute drive. SCUBA diving shop was just a 5 minute drive away. Two gated pools on the site. Sandy ocean beach an average of a 5 minute stroll from the middle of the various units on a paved pathway: perfectly fine for any group without fussy children under 8. A variety of places to eat within a 5 minute drive and two within a five minute walk. Ditto for surfing gear. The units were clean and spacious with LCD TV in both living room and bedroom. Both sofas were foldout and main bedroom was a queen with box springs and thick matress. Bathroom and hallway in marble and shower was 3 by 5 feet (very generous). Everything one needed in the kitchen was supplied. Very comfortable. A pleasure to stay.

The first beach was just a 2 minute walk along a private path past the on-site swimming pool. The other two beaches were adjacent to the first adding 2 or 3 more minutes walking in the cut grass along the shoreline.

Paradise

Beautiful resort. We initially had an issue when we checked in, but the manager Eric Napoleon went above and beyond to fix the issue and accommodate us. We would recommend to all!
