Best view, beautiful sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 short days at this awesome condo for my husbands 40th birthday. We wanted to do something memorable for this special occasion. This island truly is beautiful and being in this condo made me want to live there! The furnishings are modest and comfortable the kitchen had everything you needed but was a bit dated. The view and listening to the waves crash made this such a wonderful and relaxing vacation. We saw green turtles and seals from the balcony.

There is a community bar-b-que we made use if a couple of times but no pool or jacuzzi not that I minded, but my daughter did. No AC, as it isn't needed. The breeze flowed nicely through out the condo upon opening the glass doors. The airport is about. 30 minutes away.

Had a great time will be returning to Kauai and this condo soon.

Location , view

Two weeks to enjoy superb food (next door),, views (surfers, turtles, sunset) and did I mention quiet? Sunset viewing let us visit with others staying at KS, an unexpected plus😊.

Thanks Mel & Pearl,

Your condo was the perfect spot for us in so many ways ~ the most spectacular being the view! We spent many mornings and evenings sitting on the lanai enjoying all it had to offer ~ the view, the ocean, the sunsets, the turtles and the surfers. We could not have been happier!

As others mentioned, the condo does not have the latest finishes but that was not a priority for us and we were very comfortable. The master bed was very comfortable which is important to us.

I would highly recommend!!!

Everything that we had hoped!

  • 5 of 5

After much research, we booked this unit and couldn't have been happier! The view is just wonderful, so very close to the water, just like we wanted. Our adult son and his wife joined us and we were all very comfortable and not crowded. Since it's a two bathroom, each couple has their privacy. We are not the types to sit at the condo and are constantly on the run, but it was hard to leave this place! We both left our bedroom doors opened at night to hear the waves, it was wonderful! It had everything we needed, and was a bit dated but we didn't mind. We were happy to find such a wonderfuly location that was reasonable and we don't really care about granite countertops and such. We watched whales, dolphins and turtles from our lanai each day. Snorkeled almost every day of our vacation at the Lawai beach and it was so nice to be able to walk out each morning and be right there, shower and then continue on with our day. It's a lovely neighborhood and super close to some key shops, groceries, eating, etc. You really have everything right there that you need. This was the first time that we've stayed on the south part of Kauai and we enjoyed it very much, especially this time of year. Mel was super to work with and was very prompt with any questions that we had. We felt right at home -thank you so much for sharing your wonderful condo with us!!

Beautiful Location-Basic Condo

  • 3 of 5

Kuhio Shores is an almost unbeatable location; it sits out on a small penninsula right on the water. The views are stunning, from on the balcony & also from inside the condo; 180 degree views of the ocean, both sunrise & sunset, surfers & sea life.

Having the Beach House restaurant literally next door is also a big plus. It's a wonderful place to eat and/or have a drink, and watch the sunset. Plus, there is just about anything you'd need or want within 10-15 minutes: multiple restaurants, beaches, shopping, grocery & drug store, and lots of golf. We highly recommend the location. The owners are also very kind & responsive.

Our one disappointment was the condition of the condo; it is very dated, needed a deep cleaning, and had a couple of broken items. However, the owners were very responsive when we informed them, and they are making changes to correct these items. Completion of these corrective actions and a serious update/remodel would make the condo a 5-star unit to go with its 5-star location & view.

Owner's Response: I do appreciate this review of my condo and that my guest enjoyed the total atmosphere/environment of the location of my condo. But it was very distressing at this reviewers comments of the corrective action needed. The reason for my distress was after this guest left the condo I rented the condo to 3 other sets of guests and they informed me they were very happy with the condition of the condo. I have been renting this condo for the last 40 years and have never had such a review. Respectfully, Dr. Kalechstein
