Just another day in paradise. Not!

The private lanai of Kuhio Shores 207 is like your own private SeaWorld, giving you a front row seat to watch sea turtles and whales swim and play. The condo boasts incredible ocean views, with Lawai Beach next door, just steps away.

Remodeled and updated, the condo is furnished with high-end decor and top-of-the-line finishes. Large floor-to-ceiling patio doors bring the outside into the living room, where you can lounge on an L-shaped couch and two chairs to watch TV. The couch also doubles as a sleeper sofa for extra guests.

All that sun and sand is guaranteed to make you hungry, and the modern, fully-equipped kitchen has everything you need to whip up meals and snacks. Surrounded by beautiful touches like granite counters and blue glass tile backsplash, cooking feels like less of a chore. Sit down with your ohana – family – around the L-shaped kitchen bar, enjoying a good meal and good conversation.

When it’s time to call it a night, rest your head in master bedroom’s king bed, as the sound of the waves lull you to sleep. A small sitting area has a desk and another couch to curl up with a good book. The elegant bathroom comes with a single vanity and shower with deep soaking tub.

Kuhio Shores offers an elevator, community laundry room, and communal BBQ area for guests to use.

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets. Plus, you'll enjoy easy check-in and added security from our keyless Point Central Lock system.

About Owner/Manager


Thank you for viewing my properties!

My name is Amy Grant and I own a boutique vacation management company in Kauai called Great Vacation Retreats.

I happily work and reside in Kauai and have been managing vacation rentals on the Garden Isle for almost 4 years.

Married to my husband Scott for 6 years and we have a beautiful little girl named Presley. When we aren't busy chasing her around we enjoy going to the beach, cooking and traveling.

I love working with my guests to find the perfect place for them to call home while on vacation. It can be overwhelming trying to pick out the right property - I can help. My staff and myself take great pride in the properties we manage and believe that we truly have some of the best properties the island has to offer. We have been in each property numerous times and stayed in most so that we can give you an accurate description of what the properties amenities are, distances to the beach, sightseeing, restaurants, etc.

We can also help you with any activities you might be interested in while on island such as surfing lessons, private boat charters, guided hikes, stand up paddling, personal chef, childcare and much more!

Mahalo for looking:)

Owner/Manager purchased this condo in 2005

Why Owner/Manager chose Poipu

1. Sea Turtles and Whale Watching: Grab a cold drink and a seat on the private lanai for your own personal ocean documentary, watching Sea turtles swim and play in the Pacific. In the winter months, you can also see whales swimming in the deep blue waters.

2. Central Location: The condo enjoys a prime location for shopping, dining and local sights, with the popular Beach House Restaurant next door and the Spouting Horn blow hole just down the walking path. Kukui’ula Shopping Village is just a few minutes away with shopping, dining and a farmers market every Wednesday.

3. Practical, Open Floor Plan: Thanks to an L-shaped peninsula in the kitchen, the cook can prep meals while still interacting with guests in the living room and on the lanai.

What makes this condo unique

Just 30 minutes from the airport, this condo puts you near Kukui’ula Shopping Center’s upscale grocery store, restaurants, shops, galleries, and a weekly farmers market (11-minute walk). Drive to the National Tropical Botanical Gardens and Spouting Horn Park (4 minutes) for hiking through native plants and to a stunning waterspout.

If you’re looking for a resort-style stay, we have you covered. For an additional fee you’ll have uninhibited access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, home to a fitness center, hot tub and sparkling pool with a waterslide and sand-bottomed kiddie section – everything you need to work out, cool off or wind down.

Comfortable accomodations in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 10 nights at Kuhio Shores and were very pleased with the condo. It was very clean and well stocked to make our stay there nice and comfortable. Love the location--good snorkeling right in the areas on either side of the condo. We enjoyed sunrises in the morning and watching turtles from the Lanai. Saw some whale activity during our stay and a nice dolphin show one morning. Was fun to gather on the lawn area with others to enjoy sunsets.

The only thing we would change is that the washer & dryer are not in the condo but shared by the floor. We had no trouble having access to it when we needed it, but is just less convenient as we typically were not around for long periods during the day.

We would stay here again if we return to Kauai.

Very nice condo. Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We loved everything about this condo. The only thing that would have improved our stay would be a/c and a tv in the bedroom, just because we are used to both, but without them I still can't complain. Great stay!

Quiet condo with a great location and fantastic views.

  • 4 of 5

Upon first arriving we were impressed with the size of the condo. The location was very convenient to everything in Poipu. After a quick shopping trip we sat on the lanai and watched turtles swim in the bay outside of the unit. The internet connection is fast and easy to connect.

The downsides for us were simple things that we are used to. The unit doesn't have AC and is facing the wrong direction for the tradewinds, making it almost impossible to sleep in the heat and humidity. The mattress didn't really help the sleeping situation. It is a really old fashioned spring mattress that wasn't all that comfortable. I don't think that we turned the ceiling fan off the entire stay. If you come to Hawaii to watch TV, then you would have another problem. The TV is in the kitchen and is only hooked up to a DVD player. We never even looked at the tv so it wasn't an issue.

We did we workers duri g our stay installing AC equipment throughout the building so that part may be fixed soon.

Overall, we loved the condo and the location. Add AC and change the mattress and it would be a 5 star.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review! Yes, they JUST finally allowed AC to be installed in the building. Many owners are starting but it is definitely not the norm on Kauai and has been unseasonably warm the last few days. Normally our trade winds do enough to keep us cool. We will take a look at the mattress. Thanks for letting us know!
