Third Floor One Bedroom Unit - Sleeps 2

We fell in love with Kuhio Shores 308 when it was first built and purchased our unit directly from the developer. The location is perfect; lots of ocean and shoreline views, plus it's shaded from the afternoon sun. You'll appreciate its 3rd floor location close to the building's two elevators and coin laundry.

From the condo's large private lanai, you can see turtles swimming in the surf right below the unit. The ocean is almost directly below so it's a little like being on a ship.

Upgrades include wall to wall marble tile floors, granite countertops, bamboo wanes coating, stainless steel appliances, jatoba wood cabinets, and fixtures. This condo is charming, efficient and well appointed. It is air-conditioned.

You'll appreciate the spacious and comfortable living/dining area with full kitchen and ocean-side dining. There is a flat screen, wall-mounted digital HD Smart TV with high-speed connection so you can watch cable and used your favorite streaming service.

Listen to the romantic sounds of the ocean from the bedroom and awake each morning to a beautiful Pacific sunrise.

Check the calendar for availability and then send us your request and we'll get right back to you.

April 2023
Thank you again for making your condo available. This was our third stay at Kuhio Shores, and our third different condo. The Porter family condo (#308) was the finest unit we have ever rented visiting Kauai. The renovations are spectacular, the finishes top notch and the kitchen extremely well stocked with like new appliances. The AC is just perfect for sleeping in an amazingly comfortable bed. On top of that the patio furniture became our second home as we seemed to spend at least a couple hours of everyday sitting there and watching the turtles (and yes, we saw a manta ray late one afternoon!) The outdoor equipment was fantastic and we put almost all of it to use! We ate half of our meals in the condo as well as using the community BBQ on multiple occasions. It's clear the Kuhio Shores team takes tremendous pride in the property and it shows by how clean and well kept everything is. If it's available on our future visits to the Garden Isle, we look forward to renting Unit 308 from Doug and Summit Pacific for our next Kauai adventure.

Ohhhh... what a wonderful location. We stayed here for 5 nights and found the place perfect. We spent most time (when at the condo and not out exploring) sitting on the lanai watching snorkelers and sea turtles bob in the bay. Everything was as described in the listing and not one complaint. Thanks for sharing your space with us.

We will definitely check the availability of your properties on our next trip to Kauai. I can't think of anything about any of our stays at Kuhio Shores that didn't exceed our expectations. You and Patty nailed it. Thanks for following up.
Take care,
~ Allen

Wonderful stay, the photos tell all. Would stay again, or just move in! The deck is such a valuable asset with extremely comfortable chairs and afternoon shade. We saw a turtle swim by every day! Kitchen is well stockedwith dishes, etc. Even has a dishwasher with soap included. Couldn't fault a thing, paradise.

Great place to stay while visiting Kawaii. Would defiantly stay again. Thanks Doug

Couldn't have asked for a better location near Poipu. I love having the lanai literally overlook the ocean and being close to Lawai beach. Lawai beach is great for snorkeling and parking can be difficult to find, but being so close, I was able to take a short 3 min walk to hop in in the mornings. Pleasant and relaxing visit. Doug was great to communicate with and the photos accurately show this condo. Would definitely stay here again.

GREAT place! Loved the sunrise every morning. Would stay here again!

Doug's place has a spectacular view. It's also in a nice central location to reach either side of the island. Waking up to the sound of the ocean every day was wonderful and one of the best views you could ask for. Great value for what you're paying for. Beats staying at an overpriced resort by a long shot.

Thank you very much Patty for all your assistance with our stay. Your communication has been exceptional.
Can't express enough how special Kuhio Shores and Mr. Porter's 308 unit is. We truly appreciate the opportunity to spend our vacation time in this unit.
We are continuing to look at the calendar to see if any time opens up for January 2020, as we definitely would like to return.
Thank you for everything.

Wanted to shoot you a quick "thank you" for letting us rent such a wonderful place to stay on our Kauai vacation.
The accommodations were excellent! And there were some hidden gems which really made the trip stand out. It had a great view of both the mountains and the sea. And especially amazing was the "bale" of Sea Turtles that would feed on the moss growing on the rocks in the small cove just about everyday. Unforgettable!
I wouldn't hesitate to rent the unit again, and thank you so much for accommodating us. Greatly appreciated!
Thanks again!
~ H Dolan
PS. We washed all the dishes and put all used linen in the laundry basket. Hope the cleaning lady didn't have much to do but restock the basics

Hi, Doug and Patty,
I apologize for not getting with you two sooner, but today is my first day back in the office from vacation and I'm going BONKERS!!!! My hsband and I had a FABULOUS time in Kauai and were very happy at Kuhio Shores 308. The unit was beautiful, comfortable and located in a perfect spot. We really enjoyed our time there and thank you both so much for helping make our vacation a huge no-nonsense success!!! Everything went perfectly.
We will definitely be in touch again to stay at your property. Mahalo! (I'm fluent now. LOL!)

Such a great place to recharge the batteries! You can do as much or as little as you want. Sitting watching the ocean and turtles was the best. Fireworks from the lani on New Years Eve was great. Even when it rained it was relaxing. We explored the island and found that there was no place like 308 Kuhio Shores.
Thanks Mahalo!

Aloha!! My fiancé and I spent a wonderful relaxing week in Kuhio Shores #308 in Kauai. Our favorite part was waking up and watching the turtles in the bay right outside our room.
Thank you for making our time so special!!

It has been such an unbelievable trip! We're so thankful for being able to stay in your condo and for the thoughtfulness that has gone into making your guests comfortable - from the cooler, to the umbrella, bug repellants, aloe vera. All the kitchen materials - the amenities you have provided have really contributed to making this trip so amazing. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Celebrating my 30th birthday here was truly magical. We hope to come back soon.

Our stay in your condo was wonderful! Everything about it was perfect! So clean and nicely decorated. It just felt so warm and filled with the aloha spirit. We loved every minute of our stay and will be sure to contact you about staying there again if we ever get back to Kauai.
Thanks again for such a wonderful place to stay!
~ Fawn

Aloha! My wife and I had an absolutely amazing vacation and loved the accommodation in 308 Kuhio Shores. We have already been telling all our friends and family about your suite. We will also write a review on Trip Advisor to express how impressed we were. Thanks for helping our honeymoon be more memorable.
~ Michael
Aloha Doug,
Thank you for the follow up! My wife and I had a great time at Kuhio Shores and will definitely consider a future stay in one of your properties.
~ M.M.
Thank you for a wonderfully maintained condo in such a nice beach setting. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Exceeded all expectations. LeAnn & I had a wonderful time. Having traversed the island, I cannot think of a better location. Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay here!!
Seriously interested in Utah! Would like to bring my son & daughter (24 and 25)
Any "deals" for repeat excellent renters??

Doug - c/o Allison,
Thank you for a wonderful place to stay on our vacation. We had a great time and were very comfortable in your condo.
~ Richard and Camille
It was just wonderful, everything was as expected. Marty complained that the surf was a little too loud, but I will take surf over the cold and snow any day of the week.
~ Bruce Meyers
We had a wonderful stay and we think your condo in Poipu is outstanding we just loved the turtles and the grounds are kept beautifully all of the time.
Thanks again for a good vacation and your spot at Hanalei Bay looks great I will keep it in mind for my next trip to Kauai.
~ Sean and Vivian Brennan
Just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us with our last minute booking in Kuhio Shores. The condo was great... incredible view, comfy bed, and plenty of sea turtles outside to watch and swim with as well. We've stayed across the street at the Lawai Beach resort on several occasions but after staying in 308 I think we've decided that our next time will be there too. We had a terrific week. Thanks again and hope to be back next year.
~ Jen
I must say we had a great week on Kauai, very relaxing, weather was great, and of the 2 other couples that we were there with, your condo was the best. We were rock stars. HaHa.
So anyways, great location, the snorkeling on both nearby beaches was great, and we loved the proximity of good dining, cause who wants to cook?
... Nice set up, I hope we left the unit in good shape for the next guests.
~ Mahalo, Dave.
We just wanted to stay that we loved the condo. The location was fantastic and we loved hearing the ocean at night. The sea turtles came just about every day and we also saw some whales from our lanai. We will certainly return to the island and would love to stay in the condo again. We'll certainly recommend the condo to any of our friends and family traveling to Kauai. Best wishes.
~ Michele Mikolaizyk
Oh my gosh! We had so much fun, and the condo is beautiful! It was perfect in every way.
~ Bob Dumas
It was awesome. We had a great time in Kauai. The condo was terrific. Watching the Turtles from the Lanai was great. We would definitely recommend it to others.
~ Darla Stearman
My wife and I enjoyed your condo. This vacation was one of the best. The view from the lanai is incredible. Eighteen days went to fast. We are totally relaxed. It is hard to leave such a beautiful place and return back to Oregon. I will recommend your condo to friends.
~ Len
We had the MOST wonderful stay at #308! It is so comfortable. Watching and listening to the waves crash 24 hours a day is the best (and cheapest) form of therapy ever! We thoroughly enjoyed watching the turtles from the lanai. We did not have the best weather due to the time of year, but it did not matter that it rained most of our stay as we were content just to hang out in the condo. We were so sad to leave. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing us to stay there for the price range we needed. We will start saving so we can return to #308 in the future. We are already recommending it to our friends!!
Our very best,
~ Barry C. & Kim M.
Just a short note to say what a wonderful time we had at Kuhio Shores. What a wonderful, well furnished, second home-like and, of course, beautiful condo. I am so proud of myself that I stumbled onto it.
~ Rob and Sue B.
Dear Doug,
Thank you for offering your condo at Kuhio Shores, it was wonderful. We have stayed on the island of Kauai twice before and found that the snorkeling next to the Beach House restaurant was the most spectacular on the Poipu side of the island. It was great to be able to walk to that area, which we did several times a day. Staying on Turtle Bay is breathtaking, we had so much fun hanging out on the lanai and viewing the turtles throughout the day. The location of Kuhio Shores was exactly what we were looking for and you did a lovely job on the remodel of the unit. Thanks again!

We had relatives that stayed part of the time in [another unit], it made us very aware of what a tremendous job you had done when you remodeled!

~ Brett & Carol
Dear Doug and Allison,
Thanks for the note. We had an absolutely wonderful vacation! We're already missing your beautiful condo. You certainly have thought of everything to make your guests very comfortable on their vacation. We loved falling asleep every night to the sound of the crashing surf and the turtle watching was spectacular! My husband and I are huge turtle fans and we couldn't believe how many we saw every day from the lanai!!
We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends. I can honestly say that this was one of our best vacations ever. We really appreciate the hospitality that you both showed from start to finish.
We'll be in touch soon to set up the next trip!
Take care,
Joanne and Eric
Aloha Doug,
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to stay in your unit at Kuhio Shores! It was an outstanding unit in a superb location overlooking the ocean, and I enjoyed staying there immensely.
We returned from our vacation on Sunday (we spent a week in Maui after we left Kauai). Although we have stayed at Kuhio Shores before, it was in a different unit. We LOVED your unit!! Thank you for taking such great care of a "rental" and for allowing us to stay there! ... We will be back!!! In fact, we have been seriously considering moving to either Kauai or Maui in 2013, to retire. After this vacation, it is even more of a probability!!
Thank you again for renting your beautiful unit to us!!

We had a wonderful time and were impressed with the lovely decor and awesome view. There is nothing like hearing the water crashing up against the rocks. The sea turtles we watched from the lanai were very cool. We hope to come back and stay a little longer next time!
Thank you very much.
Aloha! We have just returned from our trip after spending a few days on Oahu after Kauai. We had a wonderful time at your condo; we saw lots of turtles, had a lovely dinner at the Beach House restaurant, and even saw a monk seal on the beach fronting the Beach House restaurant! Plus drove the entire island and had just a great time. We will be sure to remember your property if we return to Kauai again. Thanks so much,
The Hoffmans
Hi Doug
We had one of our best vacations this time. We were apprehensive of going to another island as we have always enjoyed Maui. But Kauai is absolutely the most beautiful island yet. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the condo, there were always turtles to watch from the lanai, and the snorkeling was awesome. We were also wondering where you got the mattress - we had the best sleep ever and I meant to look at the mattress label. It was incredibly comfortable ...
Thank you again and we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who is traveling to Hawaii.
And a special thank you to Allison for promptly replying to my e-mails.
Marie & Gene
We stayed in unit #308 this April, and it was fantastic!!! The Free Internet service was a lifesaver so that I could keep in contact with my job. We would like to return on the dates requested. We see that you are very booked, and we would like to squeeze into the open early October dates. Thanks again for keeping a great unit out there for traveler use.

It has been very busy here in Minnesota since our trip to Kuhio Shores in November but I wanted to be sure to pass along how pleased we were with our stay there over Thanksgiving. The condominium complex was welcoming and well maintained. The unit (308) itself was just perfect! We were comfortable there and loved coming home to sit on the lanai and listen to the waves after a long day of finding hidden beaches. We hope to come again soon. Thanks for the opportunity.
Happy Holidays,

Dear Doug,
Just wanted to thank you for such wonderful accommodations during our trip to Kauai in March. We loved the condo and hope to return soon! In the mean time, we've been recommending it to our friends. Thank you for such a beautiful and comfortable place to stay.
Jennifer and Burton

Aloha Doug, My husband & I already have reservations for 308 in Nov., but I may try to get there on my own in June. I know your condo is pretty much booked, but could you please let me know if you get a cancellation for any week in June? (Even if it's last-minute.) I think I told you I've stayed at many different KS condos, and yours is the favorite!
Mahalo, MaryLee

Dear Doug:
Wow! We couldn't believe the view when we first walked into your condo. It was truly amazing. We knew that it would be great, but it was even better than that. It was easily the best place we have ever stayed in Kauai, and we will definitely contact you for future trips to Kauai.
.... Also it was very nice to sleep on a nice bed away from home for a change.
Needless to say, we were pleased with our decision to stay in your condo, and have been sharing with everyone our pleasure.
My wife and I thank you for another wonderful Kauai vacation.
Mahalo, Richard A.
