About Florence Bergum

My husband and I live on Hood Canal near Poulsbo, WA. We are retired and have had the pleasure of owing our little piece of paradise in Kauai since 2001. My husband was a builder and I was Director of Rehab Services at a major medical center. We have used our skills in remodeling and managing to keep our unit in excellent condition to provide you with a wonderful holiday experience at a great value. We enjoy working outside, boating and of course fresh Dungeness crabbing, golf, our dog, traveling and friends. We love the hiking that Kauai has to offer and especially enjoy volunteering at the Botanical gardens just up the road. Kauai is very special to us.

Florence Bergum purchased this condo in 2001

Why Florence Bergum chose South Shore

We love the quiet island of Kauai and it's laid back style, beautiful beaches, and many lovely gardens. We have made many good friends there with whom we enjoy spending time. Getting away from the cold, damp winters and enjoying the beauty of Poipu' sunshine is something that we look forward to year after year. Hiking there is the best and our Friday night Bocci Ball event down on the beach can't be beat!

What makes this condo unique

It is ideally located on the sunny south shore for easy access to all the isalnd has to offer. Our condo is beautifully decorated and has a wonderful view of the ocean just 100 yds away. We love to play golf on the affordable course of Kukiolono and Bocci ball with friends. Snorkeling with the fish, whale watching, and enjoying the Monk Seals bring lots of enjoyment. We volunteer at the Botanical Gardens just up the road to learn about the island as well as giving back to an area that gives so much to us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo was absolutely beautiful! It was much larger than we had expected, had a gorgeous view of the ocean and grounds, lovely cool breezes from the patio, 2 extra fans to help air circulate, and all the amenities we needed to make our short stay comfortable and wonderful! Florence couldn't have been more accommodating - we booked this room last minute and she even let us check in early. The bathroom was big and clean and we had plenty of towels to use. The bonus was having access to the laundry room! The location is perfect - the complex is a very short walk to the beach where you can watch surfers and sunbathe at your leisure. A 5 minute drive will take you to shopping centers and cute historic areas of Poipu. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you Florence!!!

Charming condo, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to settle in for our first trip to Kauai! The condo had everything we needed and was a comfortable, welcoming space. We loved relaxing on the lanai while taking in the stunning view and cool ocean breeze. We enjoyed the pool once but it wasn't really needed with such a nice little beach just steps away. The snorkelling there was some of the best we experienced on the island and the sunsets were beautiful. It was so handy to have the beach chairs, cooler and snorkelling gear that came with the condo! The kitchen is nicely updated and we cooked quite a bit. We also enjoyed the common BBQ on a couple of occasions. The location of the condo was perfect. Good dining and grocery shopping options nearby and a lovely spot to take a stroll. A short distance to Poipu Beach and some gorgeous cliff hikes, Waimea Canyon, Hanapepe, and the airport. Florence was lovely to correspond with and sent some terrific information to help us plan what was a very memorable holiday. We will definitely return!!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Kauai and were very impressed with this condo and complex in general. The pictures and description's of the unit were accurate and actually don't show how spacious and nice the unit is in person. Specifically, we enjoyed the sun room facing the water as it provided a great opportunity to get out of the sun all while enjoying the view and listening to the waves. Additionally, we found the condo to be well equipped with everything that we needed-and then some- to have a great vacation. Although, this unit does not have A/C, it is not needed as the windows on both sides of the unit can be opened and the breeze would keep the unit cool throughout the day and night. The property and grounds are immaculately maintained and everyone from the staff working the grounds to the folks that are lucky enough to live there full time, were welcoming and helpful. This condo is in a great location that allows for easy access to all sides of the island all while being able to walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. We spent our mornings snorkeling at the beach across the street, explored the island during the day and circled back to cook dinner at the property provided BBQ's in the evening, finishing out the night watching the sunset at the beach across the street. The owner was very easy to work with, provided detailed and clear instructions and returned our deposit shortly after we returned home. I would recommend this condo/owner to anyone that is going to Kauai and looking for reasonably priced accommodations that offer all of the comforts of home. We had such a great time that we are already planning our trip for next year and would definitely be open to staying in this condo again.

We loved staying in this condo. Wonderful snorkeling and great sunset views just steps away. Also a great place for morning walks and runs to the Spouting Horn. The condo was lovely, nicely decorated, very clean, and well stocked. We would definitely stay again!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very comfortable, clean and well stocked with a great view of the ocean. We enjoyed the ocean breezes and hearing the waves crash at night. No need for airconditioning. It is right across the street from a great snorkeling beach. We loved the parrots in the palm trees right outside our window. We would recommend this condo to our friends. The owners were very helpful with making reservations and giving us information for sights to visit and restaurant and shops. Thanks for a great 2 weeks!

Excellent place to stay on the South Shore

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at PK #303. The condo is clean and well laid out. No air conditioning, but there's a great cross-breeze plus a ceiling fan over the bed, so we did not need it at all. It is actually much nicer without it -- louver windows and doors on the west side adjust for breeze and privacy, and big sliding doors to the balcony open to the sound & sight of the ocean.

Although advertised as having a lanai, the condo's balcony barely fits a plastic chair - it serves more as a storage space for boogie boards and snorkel gear. Opening the balcony doors wide you get a bit of the outdoor feel in the lounge.

The kitchen is well stocked (although no dishwasher), we cooked most of our meals during our stay and it worked out great. There is a very nice shared grill downstairs, we used it several times with no need to wait. The laundry room is in the same building, although it is a bit competitive with only four washing machines.

Walking distance to a few beaches (good snorkeling right across the street in the winter -- we were here at the end of summer, and it was excellent to have two surf breaks a five minute walk away). Both PKs and Centers can be a bit shallow (especially at low tide) but they're fun waves. The entire week we were there it was never crowded, a good mix of tourists and local surfers, a mellow vibe.

Not quite walking distance to groceries etc -- but a short drive to everything you'd need. There's a fancy restaurant across the street (Beachhouse) which we did not try. Going towards Poipu is a small plaza with pretty good sushi, and a burrito joint called Da Crack (highly recommended, and one place that's open relatively late).

The owners were accommodating and easy to deal with (not that we had to deal with anything other than paying the bill). We would stay here again, definitely recommend it to friends and family.
