About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4), Beach, Turtles
If more than 2 guests, please contact us via email to be sure you can fit your group comfortably (use the "send mail" option under the "request to book" option in the upper right-hand corner, and realize you'll immediately receive an auto-reply from HomeAway, seemingly from us, with a "book it now" request, before we'll be able to reply).
Spectacular ocean views, warm hawaiian decor with Koa wood and etched glass and Hawaiian art, and walking directly out to the ocean from the lanai make 106 is the "best of the best" Kuhio Shores offers.
Why settle for less direct access to the beach? From the upper floors, beach access is through the elevators and parking lot. Where else are you going to find the ocean at such a great price with all the comforts of home?
Located steps from the beach, Kuhio Shores provides snorkeling, scuba, surfing, swimming, sunning, and beachcombing without having to get in your car or even cross the street. You are five minutes away from famous Po'ipu Beach and old Koloa town; with excellent shopping and restaurants in walking distance.
Kuhio Shores 106 is a great location! This one bedroom, one bath, unit will be your home away from home.
Our condo is distinctive with its beautiful native artwork, shell collections, hand-crafted woodwork, etched glass and mirrors, Hawaiian style decor with a Hawaiian CD mix that provides you with a relaxing environment inducing the aloha spirit. Our condo takes you back to the time when the tropics were truly a remote adventure.
Open the windows and listen to the ocean waves lull you to sleep.
Ho'ai bay, right off the lanai, is known as some of the best snorkeling on Kauai. Snorkel with the turtles and the colorful tropical fish, just steps away from the lanai (watch the video above, snorkeling with the turtles off the condo).
From the lanai you can enjoy the view across to the Ha'upu mountain range, or the sunrise on the bay, or looking out onto the ocean, watching the waves, sailing ships, dolphins jumping, or whales breaching in the distance, and the near constant stream of turtles that come within 20' of your feet to the edge of the bay to feed... all relaxing from your lounge on the lanai, sipping your morning coffee.
The lanai faces East, so the lanai is shaded from the afternoon sun, and the ocean trade winds from the East keep the condo nice and cool year round.
We're on the first floor, so you're not confined to an upper floor where the elevator or stairs (and a walk through the parking lot) are necessary to get to the beach. From our lanai, you can spread-out onto the immaculately kept lawn and enjoy unconfined beach access.
Kuhio Shores 106 provides the following amenities:
o Ground floor for easy beach access
o Netflix on-demand streaming video
o King bed in the bedroom
o Queen hide-a-bed in the living room
o Fully Equipped kitchen with Kashmir granite counter tops
o Plantation shutters across the lanai for privacy with ocean sounds and breeze
o Koa wood shutters in the bedroom
o Hawaiian style decor with etched art designed mirrors and glass
o Double shower head
o High speed internet access
o Telephones for local and toll free calls
o Stereo and CD player with built in wall speakers
o Two cable TVs one with VCR/DVD combo, one with DVD/Blu-Ray player
o Movie, CD, and Book collection
o Beach gear (ice chest, boogie board, beach chairs and mats, beach towels, and umbrella)
o Shared washer and dryer on every floor

About the owner: Chris & Becky Worley enjoy relaxing on the lanai and snorkeling in the bay.
Why the Owner Chose Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
We Love Kauai. Kauai offers all the benefits of a Hawaii without feeling overwhelmed by tourists. I spent a few years living in a rural area in the tropics in the 60's... and Kauai reminds me so much of the way things were back then (of course, with WiFi). The island has many micro-climates, from jungle to desert; this is the dry side. It is common for the entire island to be engulfed in rain, and just as you reach Koloa, the rain subsides. Kuhio Shores is right on the beach; you can't build this close anymore. There's a reef ~200yds. out where the waves break, so the water is normally tranquil by the condo. We've never looked at renting the condo strictly as a business; it's for our fun and our guests fun. The greatest reward we get is in helping our guests have the best possible vacation. It sounds 'sappy' but it's true: it's been our most intangibly rewarding venture, and we love doing it. One additional benefit has been the best, most diligent and hard-working housekeeper imaginable!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Beach House beach is most popular on the West side of the building, in front of the Beach House restaurant (where the best surfing is). Our East side of the building faces Ho'ai bay with privacy and a small patch of beach that attracts the turtles and not the tourists. There are only 8 ground-level units on this side of the building which provides privacy. If you want to see and be seen, then the beach on the West side of the building is only a short walk. The condo faces east for the sunrise. There is a year-round ocean breeze coming from the east, providing nearly constant flow-through ventilation. Inside the unit, the wood and art remind me of the tropics back in the 60's... so I'm a throw-back for nostalgia in this respect. It adds to the sense that you're on a remote rural island.
