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 Poipu

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.

                                                        Lloyd L.Boston

                                                        We were very happy at Kuhio Shores. The apartment is clean and nice, and the sound of the waves that permeate the apartment is fantastic. We watched the surfers from our deck every evening. We'd happily stay here again!

                                                        Amazing views and location

                                                        Paula P.ON, Canada

                                                        This condo had amazing views and a great location; making it very easy to access the whole island. The layout worked out very well for us. The balcony was also a very good size, bigger than I expected. It was also very well equipped with everything we needed. Although we did not use the BBQ's, we noticed they were cleaned every day! This unit had AC which we found we needed. The only complaints we had is the carpet; it was quite warn down. The cleaniness was also an issue for us. The two headboards are made of wicker and were extremely dusty, as well as the room fans(we did not use due to the fact they were so dirty). We actually tried to vacuum the headboards boards, but I think what they really needed would be a good scrubbing. Other than that it was great. The location of the Beach House restaurant next door was a plus and the sunsets from our balcony were great.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        I wish the guest who wrote this had let us know there were issues that needed addressing. We would have handled it immediately and the problem would have been solved. We've added these cleaning areas to our checklist for the future. Please do let us know of any issues. We are very easy to reach and very quick to handle any concerns. We want your vacation to be wonderful.

                                                        Awesome view of the ocean. Watched surfers, saw whales and sea turtles from the patio. Close to shopping and restaurants.

                                                        Beautiful condo. Very well appointed.

                                                        Loved it! Can't go wrong with this rental.

                                                        Very Good Location

                                                        jim p.

                                                        Enjoyed our stay here. The location was perfect for us, right next to the Beach House restaurant which for young children might not be perfect, but, with late teenage children it is.

                                                        Great snorkeling right off the building with the turtles and surfing right down the street, easy walking to the market yet still quiet.

                                                        Only downside would have been to have some drapes to pull while not at the condo to help keep the unit cool.

                                                        We would book the unit again
