Relax in our Kuhio Shores oceanfront condominium on one of the most beautiful and tranquil sea shores in the world - the Poipu Beach area on the sunny south side of Kauai. Few condominiums are built on the water's edge in Kauai, but our condo at Kuhio Shores is about as close as you can get. From the lanai of our second floor unit (#203), you are less than 50 feet from the rolling waves. Enjoy our updated oceanfront dwelling where the morning sun flows through the windows as you look out onto the ocean's breaking waves. From your private lanai, which is among the largest at Kuhio Shores, you can enjoy ocean and mountain views, sea turtles appearing among the rocks, and local fishermen casting their nets. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and/or dinner on the lanai and in season see the whales breeching while you dine.

Our condominium is located on the cool east side of the condominium complex, where the trade winds flow easily through the unit, allowing you to hear the sound of the waves rolling to the shore. Alternatively, you can close the windows and rest in the quiet newly air conditioned unit. The condo is equipped to make your stay carefree and enjoyable. Available are boogie boards, snorkeling gear, beach supplies including chairs, umbrella, cooler, and towels, picnic supplies and of course a fully equipped kitchen. For those who enjoy snorkeling, a turtle nest is located in the waters off the Kuhio Shores property. Swimming with them is a delightful experience.

Guest Comments:

What a magical week for our 25th wedding anniversary. All day hiking with spectacular views and scenery. Smith Family Luau, snorkeling, turtles, food, sunrises, sunsets and exploring the island - then coming bak to your condo which felt like home. WOW! So well stocked with things we needed, so cozy and welcoming. And air conditioning* in the bedroom for sleeping was a great addition.
~ Ben and Sarah
*Owner's comment: Condo is fully air conditioned.

Thanks for the lovely condo and its full amenities. We loved views from the lanai and spent lots of time out there. The bed was so comfortable and we slept well.
~ Sandy and Randy

We enjoyed our stay in your beautiful condo. The view is spectacular. The sound of the waves is mesmerizing. Can't wait to come again
~ Bonnie and John

WOW, we are speechless! Words just can't describe our week and it is what we needed. The place is addicting and gives us so many awesome memories! It also provided a healing touch.
~ Arlin and Kathy

We thoroughly enjoyed the location and amenities of your condo. Thanks for sharing your little piece of heaven.
~ Sharon and Bruce

We've had a blissful week at your perfect perch at Kuhio Shores. Many whale sitings from the lanai.** We are grateful to be able to stay in such a well appointed, well situated and peaceful place.
~ Mary and Jack
**Owner's comment: Whales can only be seen during times whales migrate to Hawaii (usually the end of December to March).

My wife and I stayed here during our honeymoon. What a great location in Poipu with easy access to the rest of the island. The condo was perfect with everything you could need. Enjoyed having some morning coffee on the lanai while listening to the waves crash below. Will definitely come back on our next trip to Kauai!

My husband and I loved our stay at "our Pacific Paradise". Listening to the surf crashing outside our patio doors, watching the sea turtles swim in the cove, cheering on the surfers riding the waves, and winding down at the end of the day with our glass of wine on the lawn watching the beautiful sunsets...were just a few of our favorite activities we enjoyed while we were there.
The location is perfect with wonderful walks whichever way you decide to go. We were able to walk to various Poipu beaches and restaurants as well as walk to Spouting Horn blowhole and National Tropical Botanical Garden. The wonderful Beach House Restaurant is just next door.
We would highly recommend this well stocked condo. A little slice of heaven...

My wife and I had a very nice vacation stay on Kauai. One of the reasons was our accommodations. This condo was very clean and well maintained. It had everything you would expect a home to have, appliances, kitchen utensils, comfortable furniture (the bed was very comfortable), even some items for recreational enjoyment. We were within walking distance to a nice mall for shopping and dining. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

This place was great. My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn't be more pleased. Everything we needed was in the condo already, including snorkeling gear, picnic-ing equipment, books to read on the beach, chairs and umbrellas for the beach, cooking utensils for making romantic dinners, and the list goes on.
There are grocery stores and great restaurants within a few minutes drive, or a longer walk.
The owner of the condo was very nice and took care of us for our honeymoon

"Your condo is lovely; you did an outstanding job of decorating and ensuring that every day-to-day need was met. I've stayed in many condos, but yours, by far, was done exquisitely."
~ Sheila, Flight Attendant

"Your condo was absolutely perfect for us and so well equipped -- you thought of everything! The location and proximity to the ocean was exactly what we were looking for. I guess we are getting somewhat spoiled as we feel that if you are going to go to Hawaii, then splurge a little and get waterfront accommodations - it makes all the difference."
~ Sandi & Norm, BC Canada

"We loved the snorkeling, sunsets and whale watching. Having a luxury place to return to after all our adventures was special."
~ Lori & Nick, Seattle, WA

"We loved your place. It was entertaining watching everything and everybody. Your condo was clean, clean, clean!!! We appreciated all the extras in the condo."
~ Larry & Nancy, Eureka, CA

"What a wonderful place you have here! We have had the most relaxing and fun week imaginable."
~ John and Sarah, St. Louis, MO

"Thanks for sharing this amazing and special space with us! The condo is beautifully done and we felt right at home. We will be sure to recommend your condo to our friends when they plan to visit Kauai!"
~ Terri & Caleb, Mill Valley, CA

"You have a beautiful place in a beautiful location. Your thoughtfulness shows in every aspect of decoration and appointment. We greatly appreciate having the opportunity to visit."
~ Douglas and Lynn, Dallas, TX
