Puu Poa presides over the rolling waves of the north shore and has access to Hideaways beach, Puu Poa beach as well as tennis | pool on site. Just across the street is the St. Regis which is a great place for a drink, massage, lunch or all of the above!
Each of the 56 units in this luxury development enjoys fantastic panoramic views of either Bali Hai (Mt. Makana) or back to the East looking toward Kilauea. The homes on the first floor are interesting because you can walk out to the grassy area and lounge. It’s hard to go wrong here with large open living spaces and a massive concrete frame that keeps the noise level way down even if you are on the bottom floor.
Take a peek at what’s currently listed at Puu Poa:
The big map shows just how close Puu Poa is to the St Regis and several beaches.
Here’s a drawing of the buildings so you can see how the units are laid out on the bluff:
Puu Poa is one of a few prime spots to watch whales during the winter months so buying a condo here is perfect for those who want to get away from the brutal winters on the mainland and enjoy views of sea life from the comfort of a private lanai. Some of the larger units are 1900 sqft while the smaller bottom floor units are all over 1400 sqft. The upper floors make you feel like you are living in a little home in the sky!
Another feature that you might not notice unless you’ve been inside this development is that the windows that look Mauka back to the Hanalei and Waialeale mountains are just epic. The elevation and orientation of Puu Poa makes you feel like you are right next to them!
2nd Floor Plan:
*Concrete build (quiet)
*Loft Style Open Spaces
*Tennis | Pool on site
*Stairs that make Grandma 🙁
*No Covered Parking or Garages
*Units Can get Hot in Summer
PuuPoa has HOA dues just under 1k a month. Here’s a list of all the HOA information we can muster about Princeville:
All PP units have at least a few stairs. From the parking lot there’s a stairway for each pair of units (101.102, 201.202, 301.302, 401.402 etc through 113.114 thru 413.414). So you have a few steps to get to the entry of each stairway, then 8 steps down to the second floor units. To get all the way down you have another 16 steps and a tight turn. Going up to the top you have 16 steps to 3rd level and 32 total steps to the penthouses).
It’s hard to say anything negative about Kauai. Seriously. This place is full of rainbows and fun people but I really really wish there was some covered parking for the luxury vehicles that would likely be stored here. Even a garage would be fantastic ;(. There is plenty of parking but just no shelter.
Reading Reviews from Trip Advisor and talking with friends the word on the street is that the units do tend to get hot if you aren’t on the top floor. Remember there are 3 flights of stairs to get all the way up to the top if you are planning on buying or renting up there… So Grandma might not be “stoked” about coming over ;).
