Kuhio Shores condo description

Enjoy paradise from this oceanfront condo only steps away from world-class snorkeling and surfing. The beautiful, recently remodeled condo (in April 2007)is located in sunny Poipu, the dryer side Kauai. From your own private lanai, you can enjoy the gorgeous views of sunsets and the sweet sound of the ocean. Watch the sea turtles play in the cove just outside your living room. The snorkeling out the glass sliding door off the kitchen and living room is some of the best on Kauai. The warm sand on the cove's beach, only steps away, will invite you to relax and take a rest or read a book. If you are looking to catch some waves, the surf is only a short paddle away!

The condo (#103) has one bedroom and one bath, a living room, dining room and a complete kitchen with center island. The living room and dining room has floor to ceiling glass with unobstructed views of the ocean. Open the sliding door and fresh ocean breezes will gently blow into the living areas of the condo. The living room also has internet cable to hook up your laptop and work or browse the internet while listening to the sounds of the ocean and watching the turtles play.

The kitchen is fully stocked with any cooking supply or serving dish you might need. It is fully equipped with a microwave oven, stove, blender, toaster, coffee maker . . everything and anything you might need for making your own meals while watching the ocean.

You will find a comfortable King size bed in the bedroom and ceiling fan to keep you cool at night. There is also a full size sofa-bed in the living room for additional sleeping arrangements. The extra clean bathroom has a tile floor and bath/shower. The bathroom is stocked with clean towels and toiletries.

This strictly nonsmoking condo has everything you might need plus you are as close to the ocean as you can get without actually swimming in it!

              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 15 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 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!)
