Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
This beautiful condo is at the waters edge in Poipu Beach situated on the third floor. It has a fantastic, unobstructed view of a beautiful bay and the ocean.
Taking full advantage of cooling trade winds, this vacation rental is on the end of the complex, which provides more privacy (no foot traffic walking past the bedroom).
You can enjoy the fantastic view from the dining area or living room. Sit out on the lanai and enjoy snacks or meals or just relax and watch the waves roll in.
Things to Do:
You can snorkel adjacent to the condo or take a ten minute drive to Poipu Beach State Park which is renowned for some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii. A trip to Waimea Canyon, known as "the Grand Canyon of Kauai" will be a memorable experience.
Some of the attractions you can enjoy include a helicopter ride to see the island and fly over the famous and breathtaking Napali Coast and the Waimea Canyon. You can also see the Napali Coast by taking a boat trip or take a zodiac boat excursion to caves along the Napali Coast.
Sightseeing at some of the scenic gardens and historic plantations is lots of fun. The National Tropical Botanical Garden is just steps outside the door. These gardens are one of the reasons that Kauai is known as the Garden Island.
You will not want to miss the short boat trip to the lush and beautiful Fern Grotto where weddings often take place. You can easily drive to see the Wailua Waterfalls (you may recall these lovely falls from the opening scene of the TV program "Fantasy Island").
If you just want to relax, sit on the condo lanai, and in the cool afternoon shade enjoy the waves rolling in and also watch for turtles and other sea life.

Why Joe Greulich chose Kukuiula
I very much enjoy spending time in Hawaii, and especially like Kauai at Poipu.
What makes this Condo unique
I wake early and sit with my first cup of coffee on the lanai to watch the sun rise over the bay. I love the early morning and always plan to walk along the water. It is peaceful and quiet. The scent of the flowers fills the air as the day is awakening. A short walk brings me to the National Botanical Gardens and then to Spouting Hole just beyond. By the time I return the boats of fishing enthusiasts and snorkelers are beginning to make their journey into open waters, sun bathers are finding the perfect spot on the beach, and I am looking forward to my day of exploring Paradise.
Sports & Adventure Activities
What a great condo! The location is gorgeous and allows for quick access to some prime swimming/snorkeling spots. The condo itself is clean and comfortable. Quite a treat having a full kitchen to cook meals while simultaneously watching the waves crash against the shore right outside. Observed turtles daily in the cove off the lanai and saw a pod of dolphins & some whales off in the distance. While this unit is adjacent to the road, we hardly noticed it and it was certainly not an issue. Highly recommend this beautiful place & we would love to come back for another visit.
Accurate as Advertised
The Kuhio Shores building is in a great location: between PK and Lawai beaches in the Poipu area. We thought that the listing was accurate. The unit is clean, well-equipped and just delightful for two people. It is adjacent to the road so there may a bit of road noise during the day .... but really ... if you are hanging around your condo in Hawaii during the day ..... The snorkeling at both beaches was very good; even in heavy surf the water was clear as glass. The owner is very nice and very responsive. We would stay there again.
Having said this, the unit is a condo. It is not a luxury suite at the Hyatt or the Princeville Resort. It is comfortable and basic. There is no room service. There is no spa. If that is what you want, then don't stay here. But if you want a nice place in a great location, then I give this 5 stars without reservation.
January in Paradise
I recently spent too few days in the beautiful setting. The condo is very comfortable, quiet, and private. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything you need. The lanai overlooks a lovely bay where snorkeling is safe and there are loads of coloful fish and turtles. Getting around from this location is very easy. There are restaurants and shopping within walking distance. A morning walk to see the sun rise is peaceful. This area doesn't seem to ever get crowded. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and look forward to returning.
