These condos are part of the Po‘ipu Kai Resort area but were finished in 2009. They consist of two sections: One is called the Garden Villas (and four-bedroom Ohana House), the other is a newer section called The Villas at Po‘ipu Kai. The Garden section consists of one-, two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom units. The Villas have three- and four-bedroom units. Both sections are very nice with expensive furnishings and high-end appliances. Though the main living areas are smaller at The Villas, they make up for it with doors that fold back to open onto large lanai. Both sections have thoughtful touches such as fresh flowers on arrival and freebies like cots, kids’ play beach gear, coolers, etc. You have access to eight tennis courts and pool at Po‘ipu Kai.
The bathrooms really shine at The Villas with deep soaking tubs, double vanities and separate showers in master baths. We loved the skylights in the master showers in the penthouses. Garden Villas have no real views, but The Villas have either a pool view or a distant mountain view or distant ocean views, which can by quite pretty and may be quieter than facing the pool. The Ohana House was not more remarkable than the Villas, but it is a stand-alone home on site. Elevators in bldgs. A–F only. The staff here is very pleasant and professional. 1/2 units (1,000 sq. ft. achieved by lock-off) are $249–$699, 2/2 units (1,200 sq. ft.) are $369–$599, 3/3 units (1,600 sq. ft.) are $599–$899, 4/3 or 4/4 units (1,600–2,000 sq. ft.—including Penthouse unit) are $549–$1,999. 5/3 that sleeps 12 people (2,200 sq. ft.) is $599–$1,299. 3- to 10-night minimum. Garden Villa guests may only use the main pool at Po‘ipu Kai Resort. They also manage a couple of houses off-site.
