Why Bud or Kathy Schonder chose South Shore

Because you come to Hawaii to get away from it all and relax. This property affords you the possibility to RELAX and ENJOY all the qualities that make Hawaii a favorite destination. Amazing Sunsets, the Ocean to view by day and to lull you to sleep at night, and the BEAUTY is breathtaking!!!!

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is located at a vantage point where others come to watch the sunsets. You can watch amazing sunsets from the privacy of your lanai. You can view much of the sea life right from the lanai, i.e. whale watching, school of Dolphin as they swim by, the turtles right below the cliffs, and so much more!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a great time during our two week stay in your condo.

Thanks so much


P.S. By the way - Those Bathrooms Are Great!

Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 5th anniversary trip to Kauai. And we loved this condo. It was very well stocked - we made good use of the cooler, beach toys, snorkel gear & beach chairs. THE. VIEWS. ARE. INCREDIBLE. Each morning I'd make a cup of coffee and retreated to the lanai. It was always the most relaxing part of my day. If this condo is open and available, RENT IT.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. Unfortunately we can never promise beach toys, chairs or snorkel equipment because we never know what renters have left at the condo or forgotten at the beach! Thanks, Bud

Outstanding property. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

This condo truly exceeded our expectations. The view from the lanai was outstanding. The sound of the ocean enhanced the ocean front experience. The condo is in great condition and the amenities were more than expected. If you are looking to eat in, the kitchen is very well equipped. I will definitely consider staying here again. Last but not least, Bud and Kathy were so easy to work with and always quick to respond to my pre-trip questions. They are outstanding hosts.

Awesome oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

Bud's condo is in an excellent location, right on the water. The place is very nicely decorated and extremely well stocked. The kitchen especially had everything you needed. The view from the lanai is really special. It's a great place to watch the sunrise and the sunset. The location in Poipu is really excellent, easy access to great beaches, restaurants, and shopping. Bud was very easy to work with. Highly recommend

Nicely appointed, awesome view

  • 5 of 5

We were here in early December 2016. The weather was always pleasant ranging from 80-70 degrees in a 24 hour period. We had a little rain but it was a warm pleasant drizzle/sprinkle. The condo itself was roomy, clean and nicely furnished. The beds were firm but comfortable. The lanai has awesome views. The chairs and table on the lanai are tall to aid in seeing everything. Nightly we watched the sunsets and a direct sunrise can be seen from the other side of the point. We clearly saw sea turtles near the shore line. Further out we saw dolphins and whales. The condo is perched on a fairly steep dropoff. The dropoff is roped or fenced off. There really is no beach access. It's wonderful to see the waves crash up onto the rocks. Every now and then the sea sprays high into the air. The location is a few hundred feet from the most southerly tip of the island. Poipu state beach is within a 10-15 minute walk. It's an awesome swimming beach. Shopping for the essentials is within a couple miles at Longs drug store. I suggest that you do the majority of your shopping at the Costco and Safeway in Lihue. The community pool and the jacuzzi were well maintained. They have multiple Weber grills to cook on. Everything around the entire property is impeccably maintained. If this condo was a hotel I would have expected to pay $500-600 a night. It's actually quite a bargain and even more so if the cost can be split amongst 2 couples.

The only drawback is that it could be considered a somewhat difficult walk for the elderly (or out of shape) from the parking lot to the condo. It's either a longer sloped ramp or roughly 30 steps and shorter walk. The total distance from the parking lot to the condo is about 100 yards and it's mostly on a slope. The owners provide a collapsible dolly to bring your supplies to the condo. Be sure to package your groceries in boxes as the fit on the dolly far better.

Communicating with the owners was very timely and helpful.

All around it's a great package and I would recommend the condo without reservations.

We are 1/2 mile or less from one of the best rated beaches in Hawaii. Many wonderful restaurants and shops are equally as close. Our condominium affords some of the best sunset views on the island as well as sea life viewing. The complex has a wonderful swimming pool, hot tub, tennis courts and the outdoor community grilling area is modern and beautiful. All the amenities that you may require are offered in the condo including a full washer and dryer. Outdoor amenities are numerous but the view from our condo is by far the greatest amenity of all!! A guest book inside the condo has numerous suggestions from previous guests regarding, restaurants, must-see places and must do activities during your stay.
