Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a family of 5 who love the beach and enjoy spending time with each other. We met 17 years ago while lifeguards on Southern CA Beaches and now fill our time with our teaching/coaching professions and with our three adventurous children. Together, we especially love surfing, snorkeling (anything in or around the ocean), hiking and traveling.

Why the Owner Chose Kuhio Shores:
It is island paradise as close to the ocean and sealife as we could find anywhere.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy watching sea turtles swimming around while making breakfast in the kitchen and sighting breeching whales while lounging on the shaded lanai in the afternoon. We also enjoy the freedom of having a groundfloor unit allowing direct access to the beach and ability to spread out the lounge chairs on the lawn. When taking a break from swimming with the turtles and dolphins or exploring nearby beaches & waterfalls, we spend time watching our children look for shells and play in the tidepools while we're on our lanai or inside the property even (we really are that close to the water!)
