Ocean Front-Kuhio Shores-30 feet from water! Recently remodeled! Now with A/C

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

ON THE OCEAN condominium with awesome views. SURF - SNORKEL - SUNBATH - SIGHT SEE - or SIMPLY relax.

The minute you step in the door you are welcomed by the most spectacular view of the beautiful and tropical Pacific Ocean. We are directly facing the ocean!

We've just installed Air Conditioning (April/2017) to help insure a comfortable stay. The wonderful thing about being 30 feet from the water is that you can open the windows and doors, feel the trade winds blow through the condo and hear the crashing surf. This is the Hawaii experience and thankfully our condo offers such an experience. For those occasional days and nights where the winds are not blowing or it's just too hot, we now have AC to cool the condo making it an even more perfect place to vacation.

This is a recently remodeled (June 2014) two bedroom, 2 bath condo that sleeps 6. There is a King Size Bed in the master, a Queen size bed in the second bedroom and a Queen sofa bed in the living area. We are on the second floor (with elevator close by) which allows for a seamless connection between the condo and the ocean below. The ocean is directly in front of you. You are floating over the Waves and the blue waters of the Pacific as far as you can see. Offers great privacy as no other units can see into your space.

With Floor to Ceiling and Wall to Wall Windows, watch the sea, surfers and turtles from the Living room, Dining room or Lanai. Whales go by in the winter months. The Turtles feed almost every day directly in front. Sunbathe or enjoy one of the islands best snorkeling locations at the beach right next to the condo which offers both grass and sand. There is also a wonderful walk up the road to see the island's blow hole. Between the spectacular views and sunsets and the soothing sound of the waves, you are instantly transformed into vacation mode.

The kitchen is newly remodeled with new flooring, cabinets, granite counter tops and new appliances. It's fully furnished with everything you need to cook in or enjoy a drink or dinner from one of the islands best restaurants and bars, The Beach House, which is located right next door.

Both the en suite bath and shower and the hall second bath have been fully remodeled. The hall bath has double sinks and both have custom tile work with premium finishes.

Our custom art work on the walls adds to the Hawaiian feel. You are not in a typical rental.

There are also BBQ's on site for your use. There is a new Flat Screen TV in the living area and both Cable and Wireless Internet are provided. With a smart TV, Netflix is built in and available for your use. There is a parking lot for easy access, allowing one car per unit..

The popular tourist areas of Poipu are just a mile or so away, as well as the historic town of Koloa and the grocery store. The Shops at Kukui'ula are an easy walking distance with many fine restaurants, ice cream and shopping.

Welcome to our favorite place. Enjoy the peace, relaxation and adventure the island of Kauai brings.

About Karen Ness

My husband and I love the ocean. We are always amazed at the ocean's ability to calm and relax us the minute we step in the door.

Karen Ness purchased this condo in 2003

Why Karen Ness chose South Shore

We came on vacation and after staying at Kuhio Shores knew we wanted to own a condo there. We love Kauai and the condo location is just perfect. There is no other building on the island like it. Being only 30 feet from the ocean and watching the waves and the turtles from both the sofa and the lanai is mesmerizing. We love it. Now has Air Conditioning!

What makes this condo unique

We love how the living, dining and kitchen areas of the condo directly face the ocean. With floor to ceiling windows and mirrors on the side walls, the ocean views come in from all angles. On the second floor, you are floating over the waves.

Best spot to just "be" but also to have fun!!'

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect choice for our family. With two teenagers it gave us enough room to spread out and have our own space when we in the condo. The condo that we referred to as home when out and about. There was nothing left to be desired. We had all the comforts of home but in paradise. From beach towels and gear to air conditioning, which made the stay feel even more like home. To have the view we had we would have paid double at a resort. Well worth the money!!!! The only downside of our entire trip was that we should have booked more days.

Heavenly spot to relax and enjoy the beauty!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully maintained condo that has the best seats in the house to look out on the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Turtles come very close practically every afternoon and snorkeling is very close. And happy hour at the Beach House watching the sun set is as good as it gets. We will definitely recommend this to our friends when they visit Kauai.

We had a great time here!

  • 5 of 5

As you can see from the pictures, the view is to die for. It was quite rough while we were there and the pounding surf was amazing - could hear it all night from the back bedrooms. Karen is very easy to deal with and very responsive. She also gives great recommendations. The condo is well equipped and in a great location for touring Kauai. The Beach House restaurant lawn next door is a great place to watch sunset. While we never saw any turtles (bummer!) we saw several monk seals on the beach and on the rocks. This is a very nice rental for touring Kauai.

Perfect view to watch whales, turtles and sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

This Poipu location was great in Feb for two couples. We were out for adventures every day but came home for pupus and views late afternoon. The unit is a little dated but after settling in, we felt very comfortable and got the real experience of Kauai. We were glad we did not stay at a resort and lose the local feel.

Owner's Response: The location of our condo seldom disappoints. There is nothing like being on the waters edge. I wish I knew what was meant by dated as we remodeled in 2014. I will say that our guests believe our photos to be very representative of our condos finishes and decor.
