About Marylou and Andy Murphy - HI Tax ID - W-30010170-01

We are twenty

year owners at Kuhio Shores. Now that we are retired we are enjoying spending more time at our island home.

Marylou and Andy Murphy - HI Tax ID - W-30010170-01 purchased this condo in 1998

Why Marylou and Andy Murphy - HI Tax ID - W-30010170-01 chose Poipu

We have lived in several tropical places throughout our careers. None compare to the delightful aloha environment of Kuhio Shores at Poipu.

What makes this condo unique

We thoroughly enjoy the close proximity of the ocean, the ever-changing views of turtles, whales and rainbows, as well as the intermittent visits of monk seals on our beach. Fishing just steps from the lanai, outstanding snorkeling and wonderful golf courses within close proximity help us fill every day with activities that we love.

For the majority of the time, guests will enjoy the ultimate Hawaii experience, trade winds blowing and the soothing sound of the waves just 25 feet away. For the few days when the trades are still, we have installed air-conditioning to ensure ultimate comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andy and I are so happy that you enjoyed our condo as much as we do when we are there! It is also hard for us to leave!!

Very clean and comfortable condo. It was perfect. Only suggestion I can think of is to provide plastic cups/glasses to take drinks outside.

Great 10 day vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a great location and is a very comfortable stay. We were there for 10 days and enjoied snorkling with the turtles andthe close beaches! The condo was clean and had everything you needed for the comfort of home, towels and travel shampoos and soaps, coffee maker, kettle, etc. Just bring your own cooking supplies like olive oil, coffee, tea, sugar, salt, etc, or hunt around and buy small ones for your stay as those items were not in the kitchen, but im not sure they come with other condo rentals either. This condo is a great location for sunset and sunrise viewing as well!!

Perfect Vacation Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 7-year wedding anniversary. We could not have found a better condo location. The condo was well equipped with towels, Frommers and Fodor's guide books for day trip planning, snorkel gear, and chairs that were perfect for sunset and surfer watching by the Beach House restaurant next door. We appreciated the condo keys being left with the rental car company so we didn't have to make an extra stop at the realty company, as we've had to do with rentals in the past. We enjoyed starting each day with morning coffee on the lanai. We saw monk seals on the beach by the Beach House and sea turtles at the beach by Brennecke's. We enjoyed wonderful restaurants and meals (Beach House, Brennecke's, Grand Hyatt's Tidepools, Living Foods market, Lappert's ice cream, Kauai Island Brewing Company, Olympic Cafe), hikes (Sleeping Giant, Na Pali Coast), and the helicopter tour (we went with Inter-Island for the breathtaking no-door experience). We were happy to stumble upon a farmers market near Princeville (on our way to the St Regis for a cocktail after the Na Pali hike) and loved the fresh coconut that was sliced open for us. We also enjoyed walking to Spouting Horn from the condo, although it was pretty hot and father than we thought :) This location was perfect to access all we wanted to do on the island. I would highly recommend this condo!

Life in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Kauai and we couldn't have found a more wonderful place to stay. The condo is fully equipped and very comfortable. In the morning, we would make coffee and sit on the Lanai to watch the sun come up. Snorkeling was a short walk to the other side of the building. In the afternoon, we would enjoy the shade on the lanai and often spotted turtles in the bay. Then we would walk around to the Beach House lawn to watch the sunset each night.

The condo is located at a great spot. Two shopping centers are close by and walking along the coast line has some beautiful views. The only difficult thing was leaving and coming back to reality. But we would love to come here again.

Kuhio Shores Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well appointed and well maintained!! Loved our ground floor unit! And, the owners were extremely helpful in answering our questions. Enjoyed watching the turtles and Kauai roosters right outside our condo. And, it was fabulous having the Beach House restaurant right next door. The food was yummy and the sunsets spectacular! I enjoyed my morning walks to the nearby small, boat harbor. Our condo was close to everything in the Poipu area. We aslo dined at Roy's at Poipu, Brennecke's, and Casa di Amici. And, a trip to Lappert's Ice Cream Parlor in Kukui'ula Shopping Village was minutes away. My husband and I would highly recommend this lovely property.

Fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in #102, which was a nicely appointed, clean and comfortable condo. The location is fantastic - right on the cove with the sea turtles, very little foot traffic, and close to everything. It was especially nice to be able to stroll directly out the patio door to the lanai and the edge of the cove without having to go all the way around the building as the upper units would have to do. I wouldn't have changed anything about it.
