Best Unit in Best Condo-Bali Hai Direct View Air Conditioned Penthouse 412


Puu Poa Penthouse 412 is quite honestly THE VERY BEST of all the 56 units within Kauai's best condo community. Those who know this best, Our Guests, constantly say this. Its LARGEST 2,180 square foot floor plan is COMPLETELY private (only the moon & stars can look down on its two penthouse level ocean decks), and includes 830 square feet of ceramic tiled oceanfront lanais left open to the sky to enhance the incredible views and trade wind flows. Due to 412's prime location within the arcing design of the Puu Poa complex, most of its rooms face directly straight-ahead toward the legendary Bali Hai vista with fantastic sunsets. As we all know - in real estate, the three hallmarks are : Location, Location, & Location. Our Puu Poa Penthouse 412 is in the finest location within the three, four story high buildings that make up the Puu Poa community, period.... The dramatic advantages of 412's precise location within the Puu Poa complex are very clear IF you will take the time to CAREFULLY review our Virtual Tour of our residence via the website link given below and the Video that is easily started by clicking the "Video" tab above the lead picture in this ad. Such time will be well spent in your selection of a vacation experience. Please do this to observe the amazing Bali Hai & Hanalei Bay views all of our Guests enjoy and why they spend so many hours on our two large open ocean decks.... This unique truly CENTRALLY AIR-CONDITIONED penthouse corner end unit sits at the ocean edge on two sides, affording 270 degree views of the ocean through window walls from living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, and two lanai decks. This simulates the same feeling as standing on the captain's bridge of a modern ocean liner with extraordinary vistas in many directions.... Unique huge sloped picture window in dining room, two kitchen windows give additional views of the ocean, surfers, migrating humpback whales, fabulous rainbows. It is no small wonder then why Bruce Stark, the famous U.S. real estate developer - builder of Puu Poa, chose not to market our Penthouse # 412 and kept it as HIS PERSONAL HOME ON KAUAI for the first six years of existence before it became ours to enjoy and share with Guests such as YOU.... Do please allow us that privilege. ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF FINE DETAIL about the special features of our Kauai home will be provided in response to serious inquiries....

    Very Relaxed

    As first time visitors to Hawaii, my husband and I found this beautiful condo and surrounding land and views to be nearly impossible to improve upon. The owner, Dick, provided a significant amount of information for us to review prior to our arrival. We were able to sort through the places to visit and things to do on Kauai at our leisure so that we could begin enjoying our vacation right away. The kitchen was well appointed which allowed up to prepare most of our meals in the comfort of a home. We traveled with great friends and found there to be enough room for 2-3 of us at a time to share responsibilities. Dick was also very open to providing information to us as we requested it, always in a timely manner. We were extremely pleased with the accommodations.

    Best Condo in Puu Poa, great for couple or two

    My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay to round out our two week trip through Maui and Kauai. Puu Poa is located in Princeville on the north shore conveniently near Hanalei (within driving distance). This condo will blow you away when you walk in the door. It's bigger than it appears, has incredible space, and is incredibly comfortable. Dick has clearly spared no expense to make certain that everything is in place to assure a perfectly smooth stay for the guests. The condo was perfectly clean upon arrival, and exceeded our expectations. The best part about this condo is that it's on the top level, and on the corner, so you get 180 degree views towards Hanalei to the west and towards the east. The other condos don't have that view. The condo is fully stocked, with instructions for use on everything in the condo. They even have a 3D TV, though you'll be outside exploring for most of the time. It's possible to sleep with the balcony doors open at night so you can hear the ocean. Some condos had enclosed the balcony, which we weren't interested in. It's clear that Richard, the owner, is making investments to continue to upgrade his condo. If you were to ask me for a critique, the only thing that could perhaps be upgraded in the future is the upgrade of the master bathroom. Though don't get me wrong, it's a super nice bathroom with an open shower and jacuzzi tub, just has a few years on it, that's all. Either way, this place is worth it, reserve early because it sells out. Enjoy the amazing sunsets on either deck, you'll be spending a bit of time out there. Oh, and don't forget to check the snorkeling out on the beach below Puu Poa, called Hideaways...perfect little beach, often all to yourself.

    We stayed at this unit in July 2013. Everything that is said and written about the unit and owner are absolutely true! The views are amazing, the amenities in the unit, everything is as advertised. An example of how above and beyond the owners will go is that they have a 3D television set and they have 4 headsets - in the same basket they had replacement batteries for the headsets!! Truly they have thought of everything in the unit to ensure comfort and convenience. The views are beyond amazing and the convenience to all on the north shore is great. Dick - we wanted to thank you again for being such a great host and allowing us to stay in your "little piece of paradise!" We looked at a few other units in the buildings of Pu u Poa and none compare to 412… We will be sure to return!!!

    What a wonderful stay

    I am pretty sure I have never had anything go smoother than this rental and stay in Kauai. From start to finish Dick was helpful and so full of information and anticipating what we needed before we even knew we needed it. The condo is all the pictures and descriptions advertise… it is an oasis of luxury. And I have decided I NEED that ice machine in my life. We went during rainy season so our time spent on the lanai was limited to some morning coffee and evening wine but that was nice… the view from the sofa and the master bed was amazing. Even washing up dishes in the kitchen sink was great due to the view. Everything is pretty much anticipated... you just have to think, where would X be kept and ta da... there is X. :-) Location is great, you can pop into Hanalei or head down to Kapaa very easily. And our last night we had a very amazing dinner at the St. Regis which is just a short walk away. There is very nice snorkeling down on the beach below, but be warned it is a goat path (with some ropes to hold on to) at best to get down to it. Our stay here was perfect from initial email to Dick to prompt security deposit return and every second of our stay at this lovely condo in between. I do highly recommend it.

    Absolutely Beautiful Condo, Exceptional Property Owners!

    Our stay was amazing! The condo was beautifully furnished with a truly spectacular 180 degree view. The condo is extremely large and easily accommodated two couples. Everything we needed was provided including a huge 3D TV, extensive DVD library, DVR, and great sound system. The kitchen had a new dishwasher (extremely quiet!) and new microwave. On Kauai, it is often difficult to find condos with air conditioning, so we really appreciated this condo’s excellent A/C system. It was evident that the owners take great pride in their condo and continue to invest in upgrades. We enjoyed many evenings gazing at the rugged Na Pali peaks while eating dinner on the patios, yes there are two patios! We were within walking distance of a nice snorkeling beach, the St Regis hotel (for spa time and great dining) and easy driving distance from Hanalei, Kapaa, ziplining, horseback riding and gorgeous North Shore beaches. The owners Dick and Eleanor were lovely to work with. Dick is truly the most accommodating and organized owner we have ever rented from! He is a wealth of information and goes out of his way to assure everything is perfect during your stay. Our trip couldn’t have been better! Dick and Eleanor, thank you for sharing your home with us and making this a wonderful memory. We look forward to returning next time we are in Kauai.

    The best place in Kauai!

    We have stayed in beautiful places all over the world but this was one of the very best! The location is absolutely perfect: sweeping views of Bali Hai, Hanalei Bay, and the cliffs and coral reefs directly below the condo. You'll have a hard time getting up the motivation to leave the lanai and go to town. But do it because the area is spectacular. I walked to the Makai Golf course and drove to the Prince course only 5 minutes away. The charming village of Hanalei is a short drive through beautiful countryside. Great places to eat abound, but for our money, cooking on the lanai couldn't be beat. The accommodations are exceptional. The appliances, furniture, and decorations are first rate. The owners have excellent taste and have created an peaceful and beautiful environment. The condo has absolutely everything you would need. I have stayed in many vacation rentals and the results are mixed. After spending a lot of money on places that didn't live up to their description we were about ready to stop renting from the online sources. But this experience changed our minds! On top of that, the owners, Dick and Eleanor, were by far the best owners that we have ever dealt with. Dick provides the most helpful guides to how to enjoy your stay that I have ever encountered. We didn't do much in the 10 days we were there: golf, snorkeling, hiking, watching movies, bird watching, dining, exploring...well, I guess we did do a lot! It just seemed so restful! We go to Maui every year since our son lives there, but Kauai is now our favorite! We're already making plans for next year!

    This was the most fabulous, amazing, memorable, and perfect vacation we have ever had. The location of the penthouse couldn't be better. We were only a few minutes from Hanalei where there are plenty of dining options to choose from if you don't feel like cooking. If you do end up cooking in the condo, your options are endless. Every kitchen utensil you could dream of could be found in one of the drawers or cabinets. Even if you decide to make a few cocktails at home, there is an ice machine on the refrigerator door, and not to mention, a Margaritaville frozen drink blender on the counter (some restaurants don't even have one!). The view from BOTH (yes there are two!) lanais are out of this world. When you are watching the beautiful sunset from either one, if you look down, you can see people standing on the grass below trying to get as good of a view that you have. If sunsets aren't for you, perhaps you would like watching the sea turtles or surfers in the ocean with one of two binoculars or a telescope. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, as are both bathrooms. Who doesn't like a whirlpool tub or a giant shower with more than four shower heads? Talk about a vacation! You would spend a lot more money per night if you rented from a five star resort, most of which don't have a full kitchen or ocean view such as the 412 Penthouse. There are so many perks listed in the description of this rental, and every single one of them is accurate. The pictures don't do it justice; the Penthouse is straight out of a magazine. But what really made this the most wonderful experience we have ever had...are the owners, Dick and Eleanor. I have never rented from this caliber of people, and I'm sure I will never meet anyone as special as they are. The entire rental, from check-in to check-out to returning our deposit, was seamless. The organization and planning that they put into your experience at the 412 Penthouse is out of this world. It never felt like we were renting a condo for five days - it felt like we were staying in someone's home, always feeling their hospitality, generosity, and kindness with each waking moment, and knowing we were privileged guests to have the opportunity to spend our honeymoon on Kauai in their Penthouse. Dick and Eleanor made this vacation perfect for us. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to stay in Penthouse 412, and cannot thank them enough. Dick and Eleanor, you are amazing people!!! xoxo
