About the property

This Beautiful One-bedroom Has Bay, Ocean, And Mountain Views. Enjoy It All!

Our comfortable, fourth-floor, south shore condo is right ON the ocean so you will SEE --and HEAR-- the sound of the surf as soon as you open your front door. The condo, with stylish, contemporary furniture, boasts a comfortable king-size bed. Relax "at home" and enjoy the ocean while sitting inside or out on your lanai. Snorkel with turtles right in front of the condo (we sometimes see Eagle Rays in our bay, too)! This is one of the best shore dive sites on the island and our building is consistently rated as one of the best. The condo is nicely furnished so you can get down to the business of relaxing in comfort upon arrival. Come on in and make yourself at home! And just so you know, most guests who stay in our Island Oasis Suite *do* return....

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an experience we had in Kauai at this beautiful condo offered by Denise and Gordon! I had been in contact with Denise for over 10 months planning this surprise trip for my husband, she was a joy to converse with and so quick to answer. This trip was built up for a long time so when we finally walked through the front door, the condo and view did not disappoint. Everything was as described and so much more. Clean, beautiful, simple, just our taste and yet so cozy and comfortable. We really enjoyed having all the things we needed to cook in, which was important to us. The beach chairs, beach mats, and insulated bags to take a picnic to the beach were great as well. I had the pleasure to speak with Denise a couple of times on the phone while we were there. I asked if it was possible if we could check out a little later because our flight didn't leave till late that evening. She unfortunately couldn't offer us our condo because there were new tenants checking in, but she proceeded to go above and beyond and offer us a place to "park" for a few hours, so we wouldn't have to wander. I was so taken aback at the amount hospitality that Denise and Gordon offered us, it is quite honestly not the type of thing you experience in today's world quite often. Not only for their beautiful condo but their graciousness, my husband and I will definitely be booking one of their condos again in the future! Mahalo Denise and Gordon!

Exactly as advertised.......Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Hawaiian Islands and we are so thankful that we chose Kauai and chose to stay at Kuhio Shores. This condo is exactly as presented. It sits on the ocean and we listened to the sounds of the ocean each night. I loved that we could keep the windows and door open all day and all night being on the 4th floor. We will be back. Thank you Denise for making our first trip memorable.

This place was AMAZING! We walked in after a long day and were just blown away by the whole place. The design and layout of this place was so classy, and the view from the lanai was stunning! We had a few rainy days during our stay and were so happy to have a beautiful place to relax and cook some meals. The sound of waves and ocean breeze at night was wonderful. We loved all the added details (snorkel gear, boogie boards) and how friendly and responsive the owners were to all our questions. Our only regret is that we didn't spend more time here! We are already planning a return to this beautiful island and will definitely stay here again!

beautiful, clean suite with breath-taking views!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic time at the Island Oasis Suite and Denise was extremely responsive and helpful to help us prepare for and enjoy our trip. We really appreciated how clean, beautiful, and organized the Suite was. Specifically - we really took advantage of the cooler and the beach chairs on our trip to Tunnel Beach (so beautiful!)! Waking up with the view of the sunrise, and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves was perfect. It is in a great location on the South Shore of the island - you can see the ocean from the bed and the balcony is perfect for lazy breakfasts. Would very much recommend this to anyone visiting Kauai!

Owner's Response: aloha-good evening, and thank you so much, Eliza. glad you found the "helpful hints" useful and i appreciate you telling others some of the things you enjoyed about the condo. we think our building is in a GREAT spot and are glad you agree. there is a "peacefulness" on kaua'i overall, and our building on the ocean perfectly reflects that (the sound of the ocean is so soothing).... hope you'll let us know when you're ready to return to beautiful po'ipu. most guests who stay in our condo DO return! warmest aloha and a hui hou, --denise

Week visit by older couple November 2017

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Kuhio Shores in November 2017. It was a great location next to a snorkeling beach and central to lots of shops and restaurants. It was fun to watch and listen to the ocean waves and watch the snorkelers and surfers in the bay on the east side of the building.

We had A/C as part of our arrangement. We found Kauai to be very humid and were grateful to be able to cool the condo, mainly in the evening. The ceiling fan was sufficient in the bedroom overnight.

The tap outside the building was useful for cleaning off sand from the beach but sand remaining inside our bathing suit could only be rinsed off in the condo shower. Being mindful of never washing sand down the drain, we did purchase a dustpan and brush that we left in the condo for sweeping up sand.

Many thanks to Denise.

Location, View, and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Like the other reviewers say… We’ll be back! My wife and I had an amazing time on Kauai and this was the perfect place to call 'home' during our trip. The condo was CLEAN and we did not find any sand inside (an underrated quality in a beach home). The unit is nicely decorated and the building is quiet. There are great restaurants close by and having the kitchen was nice for when we wanted a low key night at home. Watching the sea turtles from the patio was an experience we’ll never forget.

My husband and I stayed here for our 35th wedding anniversary and loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

The thing we loved most was the sound of the ocean that filled the condo! Every morning we drank our coffee on our balcony and watched the sunrise... so peaceful and beautiful! It was a wonderful place to come home to after a day spent exploring the island. Comfortable bed too!
