Guestbook comments from the owner

Kuhio Shores #116 is the ideal location on Kauai! Ground-floor walkout, steps to the ocean, quiet, safe, supremely comfortable. Easy walking distance to morning coffee (Lappert's), awesome local food (Da Crack Tacos, Kukiula Market, Anake's Juice Bar!!), Baby Beach for paddling, Lawa'i Beach for snorkeling, last-day shopping (Kuku'iula Shopping Village). Easy driving distance everywhere, Great surfing waves literally right off the lanai; we watched the surfing every day. Lawn gatherings to watch evening sunsets were friendly but not crowded. All the lanais are designed so that all you see from your windows is the ocean, not the other units -- felt quiet and private our whole stay. Beach House restaurant next door has great food and an excellent happy hour with live music, but never too loud. Neighbor owners uniformly friendly and super helpful with info and activity tips. Five minute drive to Poipu Beach Park -- named Best Beach in America for a reason! The condo kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook, but since we had so many walkable options we didn't actually prepare anything except cutting up pineapples.:) Tyler provided literally everything we needed to enjoy our stay, snorkel gear in top condition, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, beach bag, cooler. Condo decor fresh and updated with a relaxing vibe, plenty of space for a family of four, sofa bed and king bed both very comfortable. Stayed for a week, explored the whole island, and compared a lot of locations. We never saw anything we liked better. Already planning our return!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at Kuhio Shores beachfront condo. It was updated, clean, and a huge bonus was the ac in the bedroom. Next door to the Beachhouse Restaurant which was convenient for happy hour cocktails and pupus. Condo came with snorkel gear, beach towels and chairs, and tons of sunscreen (in case you forgot). Tyler was quick to answer and questions we had. Would stay here again.

Amazing property with great ocean views and sounds. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 9 nights for our 20th wedding anniversary. The door is literally 15 yards from the ocean, and the waves crash against the shore 24/7. It is a beautiful spot. The condo itself is very nice. Full kitchen. King bed. GREAT shower. Property owner was very responsive and allowed a late check out since our flight wasn't until late evening. I could not recommend this more. We will be going back to Kaua'i, and I likely won't even look anywhere else.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Great beachfront condo. You can surf and snorkel off the beach. We relaxed on the lanai and watched turtles surface just off shore and whales in the distance. The Beach House restaurant is next door and additional restaurants are within walking distance at Kukui'ula Village which also has some interesting shops and galleries. Centrally located in southeast Kauai, all destinations were not far away. Unit was very nice and well equipped (even provided binoculars for whale watching). We will definitely return.

Do I really have to leave??

  • 5 of 5

As I pack my bag, I wonder to myself if anyone would notice if I stayed an extra day or two. I am far too relaxed to head home and back to reality.

This property is everything I expected, wanted needed and so much more. The bedroom is very comfortable, with plenty of storage, soft linens and a large, comfy bed. But why would you spend time in there?? The ocean is no more than ten feet out your back door! When you walk in, you automatically feel invited, and at home. The wall of windows in the kitchen/living area are magnificent. The furnishings say "island home", but not kitchy - just tasteful and comfortable.

I ate every meal outside on the provided patio furniture or down on the rocks picnic style. An early morning or evening stroll is right out your back door, and there is a ton of other stuff within a short walk or car ride. The building is super quiet and everyone was very respectful of privacy and quiet time. I noticed the grounds keepers worked everyday, and it shows. The gardens are gorgeous and the property is very clean!

As a single female, traveling alone, I felt very safe here and would recommend this property to anyone not wanting to stay at a resort. It is so much more relaxing here! And being on the bottom floor was such a treat with easy access to the water! (ps, if you snorkel, this little spot is AMAZING) The amenities were plenty, especially for the price (can you believe you can stay on the water for that??), but bring your own toiletries (like shower soap, shampoo etc), and your own cream and sugar. Those things are not provided. But there was coffee, wifi, cable and a bottle opener if you brought wine! You don't need the a/c - there is a great cross breeze and ceiling fans!

The owners are responsive and helpful. They have created a wonderful get-a-way with luxury bath towels, a remodeled kitchen and all the comforts of home. You will never want to leave!
