Description of the Koloa vacation condo rental
SEE and HEAR the BREAKING WAVES on sandy Brennecke's Beach from both floors and both decks. This is a SANDY BEACH FRONT location, set back 300 feet across a well-tended lawn. WONDERFUL VIEWS AND SOUNDS OF WAVES BREAKING ON ONE OF THE BEST SANDY BEACHES in the Poipu Beach area.

Manualoha is a small, well-maintained group of 11 elegant wood buildings within the Poipu Kai Resort. Building #1 is closest to the beach, and Manualoha 106, on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Building #1, has a parrot's perch view of the beach, mountains, and sunsets. SEE and HEAR the BREAKING WAVES on sandy Brennecke's Beach from both floors and both decks.

'Manu' is Hawaiian for 'bird,' and the Aloha Bird ('Manu + Aloha') is the Parrot.

Manualoha 106 is a beautiful two-level condominium home that offers high quality, spacious accommodation and WONDERFUL VIEWS AND SOUNDS OF WAVES BREAKING ON ONE OF THE BEST SANDY BEACHES in the Poipu Beach area.

Visitors to Manualoha 106 walk across a well-tended lawn to WORLD FAMOUS BRENNECKE'S BEACH, Kauai's premier BOOGIE BOARDING and BODY SURFING beach.

Manualoha 106 has SWEEPING 270 degree WHITEWATER VIEWS of Brennecke's Beach, Kauai's massive VOLCANIC PEAKS, including Kawaikini, at 5,208 feet, the highest point on the island, and the grounds of the attractive Poipu Kai Resort.

Manualoha 106 is BEAUTIFULLY FURNISHED AND MAINTAINED with a large family room-style living room/dining room with cathedral windows, glass with a sliding glass door to a PRIVATE LANAI/BALCONY, and a kitchen and 1/2 bath, all on the top (3rd) floor. The bottom (2nd) floor includes a large master bedroom with an adjoining bathroom with separate tub and shower, a walk-in closet, king-size bed, ample storage, and its own SECOND PRIVATE LANAI/BALCONY. The guest bedroom includes two twin beds, a large closet, storage, and has immediate access to a bath with a shower across the hallway.

Manualoha 106 is absolutely amazing for one to four persons. Sorry, but we do not rent to more than four guests at a time.

To keep up with the news, sports, etc, there is a 46' flat screen cable TV/DVD ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM with HD channels and Sports Package in the living room, a flat screen cable TV/DVD in the master bedroom, and a flat screen cable TV in the guest bedroom. There is an iPod dock so you can play your own music, along with a small collection of Hawaiian music CDs.

Manualoha is a SMALL COMPLEX of upscale condominiums within the beautiful Poipu Kai Resort. Manualoha 106 visitors have access to the MANUALOHA POOL, which is located IMMEDIATELY NEXT TO THE CONDO and is reserved for the use of Manualoha residents and visitors only.

Like most accommodation on Kauai, units in the Manualoha complex have NO AIR CONDITIONING or heating. The units are designed for through air flow and natural cooling/heating via the trade winds. We prefer this lifestyle, even if it can get a little warm at times. But, we like having all the windows and louvers open and not having to listen to air conditioning noise from neighbors. We much prefer hearing the sound of breaking waves on Brennecke's Beach. Visitors who believe they may be more comfortable with air conditioning should consider the Regency complex, also in the Poipu Kai Resort.

Brennecke's Beach is part of POIPU BEACH PARK, which is generally referred to as POIPU BEACH, a series of four sandy beaches located on Kauai's DRY, SUNNY south shore. The other beaches include a CHILDREN'S BEACH, which is a wonderful place for small children, a couple of good SNORKLING areas, and a good place to learn SURFING, all right next to Brennecke's Beach. Just lying on the beach and watching TURTLES close up and WHALES in the distance is fun too!

As a visitor to Manualoha 106, you will also have access to the POIPU KAI RESORT POOL and HOT TUB, and the Poipu Kai TENNIS CLUB. The tennis club has eight courts, two of them all-weather, all-level round-robins three times a week, and a ball machine. The family month-long membership at $60 is a great value even for a short stay. The staff keeps a list of available local and visiting players and is very helpful in setting up good matches.

There are several good RESTAURANTS within WALKING DISTANCE of Manualoha 106 and many within a few minutes drive. SHOPPING is also a few minutes away by car, either in the upscale Poipu Shopping Center or in the QUAINT OLD TOWN OF KOLOA two miles away.

Area Information
The whitewater views and sounds are spectacular. The immediate proximity (300 feet across a tended lawn) to a sandy beach with wave-riding is really unusual for Kauai. The nearby children's beach and the nearby sandy beach near the Marriott are lovely and calm, perfect for small children and snorkeling. Along with the beach view, Manualoha 106 also has sweeping views of the highest mountains in Kauai, including Mt. Kawaikini the highest point on the island. The changing light, clouds, and mist on these mountain peaks adds to the tree-top feel of Manualoha 106. The pool immediately next door to the condo is reserved for the exclusive use of Manualoha visitors and residents. The beach view from the pool is almost as good as from the condo. The tennis club is a two minute walk across another lawn to the north of the condo. This is a very well-maintained club with six hard courts and two all-weather courts that play like clay. The Nukumoi surf shop is close by and rents body boards and other beach equipment. Brennecke's Restaurant, a beach view fish restaurant, and Kalapaki Joe's, a sports bar/hamburger joint are within immediate walking distance. Many other great restaurants and shopping are within a few minutes drive, and groceries and the quaint town of Koloa are two miles away. The Hyatt Hotel is about a five minute walk away. They have a world class golf course, several restaurants and a really enjoyable cocktail hour show of Hawaiian music and dancing, highlighting local children on Tuesdays and Saturdays. There is an excellent and inexpensive public golf course about 12 miles away in Lihue, plus the world-class Grand Hyatt and Kiahuna Plantation golf courses both 1/2 mile away. There are wonderful walks, east through the resort and to Shipwreck Beach, or west along Poipu Beach and the rocky coast.

This was our first trip to Kauai and we lucked out! Manualoha 106 consists of the 2nd and 3rd floors of the last building in the development. What this means is that from the lanais (there are two!), you get lovely, unobstructed views of the ocean. Also great is the fact that the pool is right below. There is a small beach, across a quiet road, right in front of the building and the Poipu Beach Park is a few steps away after that. We couldn't have been happier with this clean, spacious unit. Everything we needed for our relaxing week's stay was there. The owner was wonderful;he sent us all kinds of information about the location as well as recommendations for local dining and activities. The rental price was competitive and I felt it was a good value. I looked at other properties in Poipu, but this was the clear winner. I highly recommend this property.

I stayed in Manualoha 106 with my daughter and 10-year-old granddaughter for the first five days of a 10-day Kauai visit in March 2016 and was completely satisfied. The property is well located, beautifully maintained and very well equipped. We found the description provided by the owner on the web site to be forthright and accurate. The owners, Roy and Elaine, very appropriately call attention to the fact that units in that particular condo community are not air conditioned by community decision and explain the reasoning behind that decision. We found the owners to be very responsive, concerned that their guests have a good experience, and flexible. Guests are provided with a 27-page (if I remember correctly) guide to the unit, with comprehensive suggestions on enjoying Kauai in general and the Poipu area in particular. Should I have the opportunity to return to Kauai in the future, I would return to Manualoha 106 with enthusiasm and without hesitation!

Beautiful place to spend time in Kauai! The condo had everything we needed and then some!
Date of Stay, November 21, 2015, 5 stars
The grounds were very well-maintained and beautiful. The condo itself was fantastic! It was spotless when we arrived and included numerous extras that we thought we would have to buy ourselves (paper products, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, etc). So, we really only needed to buy our food, which was wonderful. They had every kitchen amenity and gadget a person could want or need... much better than many rental properties! We loved the layout and thoroughly enjoyed spending time in the upper level especially! The condo has a homey feel and it proved to be a great home away from home! The most beautiful sunset we saw during our stay was actually from our balcony at the condo. It was a short jaunt to one of our favorite beaches and there were a couple of good restaurants close by as well. The owners were beyond fantastic... they gave us great information/recommendations up front via email and they also had a binder in the condo that contained information, tips, etc that proved to be very helpful. They worked with us to accommodate our crazy travel arrangements, which was such a blessing and something that they certainly didn't have to do. We couldn't have been more appreciative of their flexibility! We would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit Poipu, it's absolutely lovely and exceeds expectations!
