About Betty Smith
We fell in love with the south ('sunny') side of the gorgeous island of Kauai when we spent our Honeymoon here in 1978. We've been going back as much as possible ever since!
Betty Smith purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Betty Smith chose Kukuiula
We thought our dream of one day owning our own home in Poipu was probably an 'impossible' one, but always looked for opportunities nonetheless. That day was realized when we found an availability in Kuhio Shores which is 20 feet from the ocean! After completely demolishing the interior, we remodeled and now offer our home for others to enjoy as well.
What makes this Condo unique
Our home is right on the ocean with access to some of the best snorkeling, surfing and body boarding on the island. Watching the turtles frolic in the waves from the lanai and when in season, whales and dolphins as well! One of the best restaurants on the island, The Beach House, is conveniently located right next door.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Our stay was as advertised, clean, well-provisioned and recently remodeled in a tasteful manner. They obviously care for the unit as a residence more than a rental. Location was perfect for snorkelling, dining and for exploring the south island and points west. Betty was responsive and most pleasant to interact with. If I get back to Kauai I would try to coordinate a stay in #212 again!
Mahalo for your review! Our goal is that our guests experience an amazing stay, both discovering this gorgeous island and staying in the perfect condo!
Please come back and visit us soon!

This great condo, perfect for two people, has the ocean right out there -- a stone's throw off the lanai, with the sound of crashing surf being the backdrop for everything else. We found the place easily and got the key with no trouble following the detailed instructions emailed to us before we even left home. Parking was easy and the elevator to the second floor was usually right there when we needed it. When the staff person for the building was present, he was always courteous, professional, and helpful.
The condo itself was nicely furnished, up to date kitchen and bath, comfortable bed with very nice bed linens and pillows. The AC units worked easily and well when needed.
We enjoyed the comfortable chairs out on the lanai as well as the breakfast nook. What a view!
One evening we walked over to the Beach House for dinner and were seated right away, even without a reservation, out on the patio with a perfect view of the sunset. The restaurant deserves its great reputation! In general, staying in the PoiPu area was a good decision. We could easily drive to other places wanted to see. Oh yes -- thanks for the use of your great beach chairs!
As it turns out, we didn't cook meals in the condo, but it seems like a great, functional kitchen. The only point I might make, maybe for your future reference, was that there is a good coffee maker in the condo but no coffee. We arrived late, after stores were closed, so we had to get up and going early the next morning to find someplace to eat, then get to a grocery store to have coffee for the following morning. I'm sure not everyone is as dependent on the first cup of coffee as I am (!), and maybe I should have brought my own that being the case, but even one pot's worth of coffee, or even some instant, would have been appreciated.
Other than that, we are thankful that we found your place and that it was available for our dates. We would love to return sometime and enjoy Kauai all over again!

Kuhio Shores #212, Kauai
This was not our first visit to Kauai and this condo, and continues to be one of our favorites in Hawaii. As folks have said previously, the accommodations are excellent, and the views simply awesome. Everything we needed was supplied. We ate in most nights, grabbing some local seafood and grilling it up. The kitchen is well stocked with herbs and spices. Beach chairs and towels were supplied. The condo is equipped with efficient mini-split A/C units in both bedroom and main living area, though we did not need it. Ala in all we had a great time and will most certainly be back
Mahalo! So glad you enjoyed your stay! We want all of our guests to have a great experience!

#212 Kuhio Shores, Kauai
Unit 212 is a fabulous, absolute waterfront apartment, where we spent many hours sitting on the verandah watching surfers catch waves, green turtles swim slowly past, and even a pod of Dolphins leaping out of the ocean! The apartment is beautifully furnished, the kitchen is generously supplied with everything we needed to cook at home, and there were even beach towels and snorkeling gear available for guests to use. Kauai is a beautiful, relaxing place, and we felt we were staying in one of the best places on this wonderful island.
We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay! We want all of our guests to enjoy our piece of paradise, the stunning location, and all the amenities of home in the true "Hawaiian" spirit.

Incredible Place to Stay in Kauai
My wife and I stayed in Kuhio Shores #212 and had a phenomenal time! Where do I even begin. First off, the view from the balcony is breath taking and gives you a perfect view of some great Hawaii surf! The condo is so close to the water that the sound of the waves is the perfect way to soothe you to sleep.
The condo has everything you would want in it: kitchen, fridge, couch, etc. The shower is great and the bed is super comfy. More than anything we loved the location of it. It is minutes away from the grocery store, great dining locations, and incredible beaches. The best snorkeling we did in Kauai was 5 minutes from this place! It was so nice to be able to leave and be at a beach in no time. It is also walking distance to the best meal we had in Kauai, The Beach House. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We absolutely would recommend this place to others, and hope we get the chance to stay there again!
Aloha Matt & Erin!
Mahalo for your nice comments. That's the goal for all of our guests, to provide the perfect spot to relax with all the amenities of home, gorgeous views, and spectacular location to thoroughly enjoy this beautiful island!

Excellent Accommodations in Kauai
This condo has a great central location for day traveling all areas of the island. We were able to explore the island and enjoy coming "home" to the condo. Betty and Bart have done an excellent job at providing everything needed from a functional kitchen, to lunch coolers, and beach chairs. We saw turtles, and surfers daily from the lanai. Highlights around the area included Shipwreck Beach, Spouting Horn, and Makauwahi Cave. Plenty of restaurants and shopping in the area.
Aloha Jennifer! Thank you for your review. That's our goal for all of our guests....to provide awesome accommodations so they can fully enjoy this gorgeous island.
Bart & Betty
Convenient access to deep sea fishing, whale watching and sunset sails and a quick walk up Lawai Road to the 'Spouting Horn' and Botanical Gardens. Next to Beach House Restaurant
