Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

New mini split Air Conditioning system just installed to make your Kuhio Shores 415 cooling experience perfect. Open windows, trade winds, fans to hear the soothing sounds of the ocean. And now if none of the above works you have use of a quiet, efficient air conditioning system to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

VRBO has changed their vacation rental model from where guests work directly with the owner of a vacation property to being a rental agent that takes the owner of the property out of the picture. VRBO has also changed their pricing model from charging the vacation rental owner a fee to be on VRBO to charging the vacation owner a fee and collecting a fee from the guest renting through them. Sue and I want to still work directly with the guest without a fee which you still can do on VRBO for a while longer.

Some of our guests comments:

'Over the past 15 years we have made Poipu one of our most frequent stops. By all measures your Kuhio Shores condo has been the best! Thank you Galvins for a spotless attractive ten day home. We'll be back and probably send a few friends this way.'

'Your home has been ever so relaxing and comfortable. We've seen the turtles, a seal and surfers having a good time. Enjoyed Poipu Bay so much. No matter where you are in this room you can see the beautiful ocean.'

'As always Kauai has given us its best: lovely and friendly people, lots of sunshine, a couple of rain showers, lots of surfers just off the shore here at the condo, lots of marvelous shopping, great food and last but not least, beautiful accommodations!'

'Thank you so much for allowing us to share such a beautiful spot in an absolutely dazzling way!'

About Mike & Sue Galvin

We have been coming to Kauai since 1975. We fell in love with the island and

especially the Poipu area. We purchased our first condo 415 in 1998 and our

second one in 2003. We spend January and February every year at Kuhio Shores

working on our condos and enjoying the Island of Kauai. The rest of the year

is spent talking to the wonderful people who want to come to Kauai and stay

at Kuhio Shores.

Why Mike & Sue Galvin chose South Shore

We have been coming to Kauai since 1975. We fell in love with the island and

especially the Poipu area. We purchased our first condo 415 in 1998 and our

second one in 2003. We spend January and February every year at Kuhio Shores

working on our condos and enjoying the Island of Kauai. The rest of the year

is spent talking to the wonderful people who want to come to Kauai and stay

at Kuhio Shores.

What makes this condo unique

Close to everything, excellent walking/jogging, restaurant right next door,

best snorkeling just minutes from the front door, superb views of turtles,

whales, surfers, sunsets right in front of you.

Fall of 2009 brings the opening of the new Kukui'ula shopping village a very

short walk from Kuhio Shores that will feature more excellent restaurants

and shops.

The Best Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Mike's condo at Kuhio Shores for over 15 years, simply because it is the best place to stay due to the Aloha warmth, details, comforts of home...and of course the location! You are blessed with an amazing oceanfront location, that will mesmerize you. One of our favorite things to do, was simply enjoy our coffee or dinner on the balcony and watch the surfers and sea turtles, which would entertain us for hours. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean each night is incredible.

Mike is always a gracious host, and the condo is WELL appointed and very comfortable with nice Hawaiian touches.

We can't wait to return....again!!

Perfect Location. Laura Burt seababe167@gmail.com

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I really loved our stay at Kuhio Shores 415 .It over looked the surf and the surfers. I didn't even turn on the tv .The Lanai was so entertaining watching 17 surfers dodging each other between sets.The Beach House is next door and has beautiful sunset.The location was perfect for touring the island and sightseeing.Mike was so helpful on finding a rental car to boating.You need air cond. when your sleeping its humid in the summer . This condo had beach chairs ,umbrellas and everything you need for the beach even coolers and ice packs. My favorite place to snorkel was out the door to the left of the condo. Great fish.We will be back. Thanks Laura & Ollie Burt

Paradise found !

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to find this wonderful condo in Poipu and the owners Mike and Sue were helpful and kind. This condo had everything needed to feel like you were home .

The furnishings were comfortable although we spent the majority of our time out on the lanai if we were at "home". My husband made good use of the BBQs, we cooked most meals ourselves. The sunsets here were nothing short of breathtaking .

We watched turtles in the morning and dolphins swimming past. Not to mention the waves. My husband snorkelled with so many turtles. Everything was perfect here and our first trip to Kauai will not be our last. From the mountains and valleys of the na Pali coast to the beaches Poipu area and everything in between this is truly paradise !

Can't beat the View in this well appointed Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The view and location of this comfortable Condo can't be beat. My husband and I just traveled to the Island of Kauai for the first time. This Condo is perfect for a couple. It is furnished very comfortably and well stocked. The lani furniture sits high enough to look over the railing giving you an unobstructed view of the waves, sunset, sunrise and more. We did day trips from here and had to get back each afternoon to walk to the small beach to the right of the Condo, to go snorkeling everyday, then return to the lani to watch the sunset! We will return to Kauai, and will rent from Mike and Sue again.

Perfect condo in Poipu!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful condo & location on the sunny side. We had everything we needed in this beautiful oceanfront condo. We are talking about when we can return to this slice of paradise. Thanks to Mike & Sue for making everything so easy, from the rental car (great rate) to the keys mailed to us. It was so easy which helped with the de-stressing process. You get there & the stress just disappears! Thanks again. Mahalo.

Great condo in great Poipu location

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable condo on the sunny south shore in Poipu. We got stuck on the balcony enjoying the awesome oceanfront views and the sound of the waves a couple afternoons when we should have been out touring the island. Nice snorkeling all around the complex, but the entry to the east was rocky and pretty challenging if barefoot. To the west is easier entry, and the water seemed calmer there most days. The surf breaks just off shore, so there was a steady stream of surfers from first light to sundown. The surf can also be a little daunting when snorkeling, so be careful to stay in the calmer areas if you're inexperienced, plus watch out for those surfers. The multitude of sea-life (including turtles!) is worth it though. Seasport Divers shop is a 2 minute drive away, making those 7:30am pre-dive head counts a little easier to make. As mentioned by another reviewer, the tower fans were great to bring things into the comfort zone when the ceiling fans weren't quite enough. The two pairs of binoculars were totally unexpected - great for whale-watching or checking out the surfers. Nice touch Mike and Sue! Having fully functioning laundry facilities was great, and we could have packed a lot less if we'd planned better for that. It's coin-op (there's a change machine), took less than 2 hours, and cost $5 total for detergent/wash/dry, and there's great counter space for folding your newly clean clothes. My singular complaint about the condo is the bed was too firm for my tastes, but that's just me. My wife liked it. Lot's of great food in the area, and the farmers markets were perfect for fresh fruit/veggies/bread/etc. Matt, who runs Makai (I think that's the name) sushi in the small grocery at the other end of the Seasport Divers mini-mall, rolls up some wicked sushi that makes a great lunch back on the condo balcony, along with a fresh fruit smoothie or perhaps a cocktail - hey you're on vacation! Koloa Fish Market also has nice plate lunches, and fresh poke (cubed marinated raw fish). Our best dinner was at Merriman's. For early risers, the trail up to the cliffs just east of Shipwreck beach (just east of the Hyatt), is THE place to be for sunrise. Then continue east for a beautiful morning hike along the undeveloped shoreline. The lawn in front of the Beach House restaurant right next door was a fine sunset spot. All in all this condo was a perfect base for our stay in Kauai.
