About the property

Condo with A/C, 1 Bedroom, Oceanfront, Beautiful

Located just 30 feet from the surf on Kauai's sunny south shore, our 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 900 sq. ft., professionally decorated, fully equipped, OCEANFRONT Poipu condo Hawaii vacation rental at the famed Kuhio Shores offer those planning a Hawaii vacation in Poipu Beach some of the most spectacular ocean views, sunrises and sunsets found on the beautiful Island of Kauai, Hawaii.

This exceptional, newly remodeled unit juts out from the main building, putting you 10 feet closer to the ocean and providing totally unobstructed views.

Kuhio Shores is a 75 unit oceanfront condo complex with beaches on both sides, yet total privacy from the lanai because of the 20 foot greenbelt to the ocean. This vacation rental has the closest oceanfront units on all of Kauai, Hawaii.

Situated on a promontory, the building is protected from wave action by a reef offshore, making it ideal for wave, turtle, and whale watching. The ocean just below the condo provides some of the best snorkeling on the island and beyond the reef are three of the south shore's most popular surfing sites; P.K.'s, Centers and Acid Drops.

Planning a Special Occasion... Anniversary, Honeymoon, Birthday Or ...... just because you deserve it.........

You've come to the right place...Enjoy your Hawaii vacation at Our OceanFront Paradise

Enjoy...crystal blue and turquoise ocean, accented by black lava and white sandy beaches, magnificent sunrises and sunsets from your own private lanai.

The giant sea turtles are playing in the surf, whales frolicking further out at sea (Nov-Apr) and monk seals and dolphins often stop by to visit.

Swim with the tropical fish and turtles in some of the best snorkeling on the island. Access is from the beach on both sides of the building. Surfing, bodyboarding, sunning and viewing are there for your pleasure.

Ready to get out and explore? .... jungle and waterfalls, tropical gardens, hiking, sport fishing, golf, boutique shopping and both elegant and casual restaurants await you.

Enjoy a glass of wine, some cheese and relax to the music of the ocean surf; or, a cup of coffee and watch the surfers and listen to the ocean waves break, ALL FROM YOUR PRIVATE LANAI.

Worries and concerns fade in the tranquility of the islands and their beauty. Want to explore the rest of Kauai, our vacation rental makes the perfect home base, located midway between the North and the West side. One day you can drive North to explore the exotic and outstanding North Shore beaches and lush greenery, the next you might want to head West to view the Waimea Canyon, also called the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific'.

Relax at one of the premier oceanfront resort vacation rental destinations in Hawaii. Shop in Old Koloa town, visit Poipu and Shipwrecks beaches, take a short walk to the Spouting Horn and Allerton Botanical Gardens where Jurassic Park was filmed, then dine at the award winning Beach House Restaurant right next door.

You may find it difficult to leave the lanai, watching the surfers, sunsets, giant sea turtles, spinner dolphins and listening to the lullaby of the ocean waves crashing......And, for the more culinary inclined, a fully equipped kitchen in the unit along with a common barbeque area outside are available for your use.

Why Bob and Merideth chose Poipu

We have traveled to over 38 countries and hundreds of cities, staying at some of the finest hotels in the world. In 2007 we took a 30th anniversary getaway, and departing from our normal hotel stay, we decided to rent an oceanfront condo, direct from the owner, at Kuhio Shores. Spending 10 days there and observing the beauty of Kauai during that time, we were struck with the Aloha spirit. Keep in mind that we had visited the Hawaiian islands approximately 15 times before, but there was a specialness here not found elsewhere. It was at that point we decided we no longer wanted to be just visitors, rather owners. And, in our retirement years be able to spend significantly more time here.

What makes this condo unique

Beauty, happiness, relaxation, serenity. If you love the ocean, you will not find a place where all five senses are stimulated more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much Bob and Meredith for sharing your wonderful condo and perfect location for our anniversary.

It was the little things that blew my husband away. Like the music playing when we arrived and the luggage tags. We flew first to Maui, than Kauai and than Ohau so he loved being able to find our luggage with your flipflop luggage tags.

We ended up staying at four condos during our stay in Hawaii. And yours felt different in the fact that it was as if you wanted us to enjoy ourselves and your condo. The others were very nice too but we felt it was just a business deal-their condos where there to be rented and end of story. Your location/condo felt as if you also wanted us to be comfortable and enjoy our vacation and have it a vacation to remember.

Thank you again, maybe if I am very lucky I will be able to enjoy Kauai again.

Oceanfront at its best

  • 5 of 5

Our annual stay at Kuhio Shores 313 was just right. Relaxed, entertaining, our happy place. Sunrise and sunset are always just right. Whales were active, the monk seals payed a visit. Surfers were fearless. All of this right outside the door.

Farmers market always a fun adventure and a great way to find wonderful foods & flowers.

On the water!! Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Great condo with everything you could want. Fully equipped just bring food and clothes. Turtles watching from you lanai. If you care, internet is slow. Don’t know if you could stream. But hey, you’re in Hawaii, who cares!! Great walks to be had and close to lots of shops and restaurants. Not much in grocery so stock up at Costco and Safeway (next to each other) before you a head to condo. Snorkeling beach next door with a Snorkel Rental right there. Wonderful owners to deal with. Highly recommend if you want to hear and see the surf.

Beautiful Ocean Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Kuhio Shores 313. As you enter this luxurious welcoming condo the Hawaiian music, treats and vast pacific ocean are there to greet you. Much needed after a long air flight.

The condo is well decorated, has all the comforts of home and is conveniently located to the local sights. You can view sunrise, sunset, turtles and surfers all from the lanai! Being only 20-30 feet from the ocean. And, some of the island’s best snorkeling is in the water below.

The ocean can be viewed from every room. The bed is comfortable. Two tv’s (if you have time to watch). The full kitchen is a cook’s dream with all the necessary cooking available.

Our stay here was exciting, adventurous, inspirational and relaxing – so much to do and see.

The owners, Bob and Merideth, were great to work with. They advised us on everything from car rentals, places to shop, dine and sights to see. They made this one of our best vacations ever.

Beautiful view of the ocean and turtles

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the condo on Kuhio Shores. The best was the views of the ocean from the lanai, watching the waves, the surfers and sometime the turtles. The condo was also very nice, and well equiped with just about everything you needed from kitchen utensils to snorkling gear, boogie board, beach towels and beach chairs.

The owners were also most helpful, flexible and responsive to all of our questions and requests.

We would love to come back!

Wonderful Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation spot. The condo was exactly as advertised. We stayed 14 nights. We had a wonderful relaxing time. The condo was fully equipped with everything we needed. It felt like home. Thank you Bob and Meredith for sharing your home with us. We will recommend this condo to everyone we know. We saw whales, turtles, and dolphins from the lanai while we sipped our morning coffee. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular. Thank you for making our dream vacation come true.
