About the property

Quiet and Comfortable 1 bedroom 1 bath Ocean Front Air Conditioned Condo

Kuhio Shores 104 is on the ground floor of this special property, where a covered lanai and a lush green lawn are only things between the living room and the ocean. We are on the quieter east side, where the sun rises and the cooling trade winds blow. The sea turtles pop their heads up to welcome you. Just imagine yourselves sitting on our cozy chairs on the lanai, enjoying your meal or favorite drink. It is just beautiful!

We have made our condo comfortable and inviting in the spirit of Aloha. We want you to feel perfectly at home. As your hosts, our main goal is for you to have a wonderful vacation experience. We are always available to you.

The furnishings were chosen to compliment your island experience in style and comfort.There is a new king bed with a lux memory foam topper for optimum comfort. The sofa bed is also made for both seating and sleeping comfort. The sofa sleeper has been an option for guests who want to hear the sounds of the ocean as they sleep. The living room is furnished in a tasteful island style, with practicality also in mind. There is plenty of lighting to read or use your computer, with our wireless high speed internet. The kitchen is well equipped and well stocked for cooking. Along with major appliances, there is a microwave, coffee maker, separate espresso maker, blender, for your island drinks, rice cooker, and all of the dishes, pots, pans and utensils you will need. There is also a great Weber BBQ on the premises. Each of the floors at Kuhio Shores has washer and dryers for your convenience. The unit is Air Conditioned.

Our condo has a great system of lockable plantation shutters so that you can keep the lanai shutters open to hear the waves and feel the cooling breezes. Being on the ground floor also allows you spread out on the lawn, giving you a much bigger space to enjoy the magnificent view. Our condo is in a very convenient location just to the left of the Kuhio Shores lobby. There is no need to use the elevator or stairs.

Here, you are at the water’s edge, but the rest of Kauai has so much to offer. Some of the very best snorkeling and diving can be had on either side of Kuhio Shores. Ho'ai Bay just in front, is a favorite of locals and the home to many sea turtles. Behind is Prince Kuhio's birthplace, a sacred heritage site. Lawai Beach, next to the famed Beach House Restaurant is exceptional. Other amazing white sand beaches for surfing, swimming and snorkeling in Poipu area are just minutes away. Old Koloa Town just up the road, is a gem of old Hawaii. Kukuiula Shopping Center, with fine dining and shopping, is a short walk away …and then there is the rest of the breathtaking Garden Isle!

About John and Brenda Loudon

John and Brenda Loudon-

We have lived for over 30 years on the beautiful Mendocino coast of northern California.This is our first home, where we have raised our children. John is a General Building contractor, specializing in custom homes, and I am a nurse at the local hospital. We love to travel and have been to many special places. We thought that our first home was still the most beautiful place...that is until we experienced Kauai. The friendliness and kindness of the local people also drew us. There is an easy smile and an open heart--the true spirit of Aloha.

John and Brenda Loudon purchased this condo in 2012

Why John and Brenda Loudon chose Poipu

I just happened to find our unit, Kuhio Shores #104 on VRBO while hunting for a place to stay on our first trip to Kauai. We couldn't believe how special Kuhio Shores was with the close proximity to the ocean, beautiful gardens and the extremely helpful staff. We returned several times and found out that the unit was for sale! We felt strongly that it was 'meant to be'. We feel so very lucky and are excited to be able to share our second home!

Perfect location and views

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into the condo it was paradise. The ocean view is spectacular! It's the first thing you see upon entering. There is a wall of windows and the breeze is terrific. The condo itself is pretty basic, could be a little more updated, but really nice. The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. We ate breakfast on the lanai every morning and watched the sunrise. Thank God for the time change or I never would've made it. There is no view from the bedroom but that didn't bother us at all. There was AC which we did need to sleep since we are used to a colder climate. The constant sound of the waves is so calming and it's actually pretty loud. I have to say that I did not like the shower configuration but in the overall scheme of things it didn't matter. The only other negative is the neighbors being so close and people from across the street cutting through the property to watch the sunrise and sunset. They walked pretty close to our windows and since you're on the ground level (which I loved) you just have to make sure to be fully clothed when the shutters are open. The location was perfect proximity to restaurants, beaches and basically getting around the rest of the island, which we did. Don't be deterred by the drive to the North, it's totally worth it on a nice day. We did it twice. We used the beach chairs and umbrellas provided everyday. There is also a small cooler which I didn't even notice until our last day, that I would have used to bring food to the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous location and beautiful well-stocked island casual condo.

  • 5 of 5

This walkout unit was exactly as expected. The a/c was appreciated as it was up to 90 degrees and perfect weather our entire stay. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom ceiling fan priceless! Would definitely stay here again. The view was great, the moonrise at night was stunning and turtles in the water right in front every day. We are fairly picky with high expectations and were very happy with our stay here.

Really doesn't get much better than this.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay in Kuhio #104. Really everything as advertised, location was excellent. Condo was well equipped and we had everything we could need: beach chairs, towels, umbrella, and coolers. It's Kauai and we went for for beaches, so what more could we ask for?

Great condo on the water

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice with a great water view. We really enjoyed our mornings watching the sunrise from the Lanai.

The condo was nicely supplied with everything we need. Kuhio Shores is a great location and a comfortable place to stay.

Days spent exploring Kauai and evenings at the Beach House watching the amazing sunsets and snorkeling.

We really enjoyed our Kauai trip and plan to comeback soon.

Cozy and complete

  • 5 of 5

This condo is Hawaiian themed in a delightful way and very comfortable in all ways! Great sofas, wonderful lanai overlooking a cove where turtles can (sometimes) be seen. A short walk from the condo brings you to the stellar snorkeling spot of Lawai Beach, good for amateurs close to shore & for the more experienced, a short swim brings a bit more! When you see the surfers out, the water may not be as clear, fyi. The kitchen is well stocked; we kept finding things we had needed a day or so before! Thank you for the Britta!

Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Condo could not have been better. Spotless and well equipped. Location is great. Parakeets outside are another story and impact the whole area. Don't park under trees and all will be good. Excellent pre-trip information from owners. Highly recommend.
