  • It began with pleasant email exchanges with the condo owner, Vadim, and ended with four wonderful days on the east side of Kauai in Waipouli. Steering away form the stereotypical 'tropical' theme, Vadim has decorated his unit in a clean, modern style with ultra hi-end appliances and furnishings(Wolf, Sub-Zero, etc). Everything about the unit and the surrounds was first class...in fact, we would call it world class. Even still, it managed to maintain a warm spirit of aloha. We're truly in paradise. Six adults (3 couples) shared this two bedroom, three bath unit very comfortably. The CS Woo sleeper bed with a platform and firm mattress was extremely comfortable, as were the beds in the master(king) and guest bedroom(2 doubles). We all awoke refreshed and ready to enjoy fresh Kauai grown coffee and a breakfast we prepared in the well appointed kitchen. We were only missing a hair dryer and that was brought to us within hours of our arrival. Had we needed anything else, it would have been taken care of immediately from our experience.Snorkel gear, cooler, beach chairs, Bluetooth stereo speaker, linen, washer/dryer with detergent, shampoo and soaps...all provided. All we need were swimsuits, slippers, & an occasional visit to Starbucks or Safeway just across the road. Everything in the unit worked to perfection...nothing was out of order and there was an obvious effort to present it cleaned to perfection. The meandering pool with jacuzzi was fabulous...clean and not crowded. We barbecued two nights down on the pool side grills...perfect Teri chicken and steak. Sightseeing for either end of the island was a breeze and we timed it such to avoid any and all traffic. Airport? Just twenty easy minutes away and Costco just twenty five. As retired airline employees, we have been fortunate to travel the world and to see and experience many wonderful places. We just gotta say, this place was extra-special by ANY standard. We had a great time just relaxing by the pool, enjoying the sights(Waimea Canyon was picture perfect!), enjoying friendship, margaritas, good food, cards, and laughter. A++++++ on every level. We chose to eat out just once at Hukilau restaurant within walking distance, and it was excellent. Kauai is beautiful, this condo is awesome, and our memories are etched forever. We recommend this VRBO listing with our strongest enthusiasm...you can't go wrong! Mahalo nui loa!
