Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time staying at your condo and thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Kauai. We took it all in with some great hiking, snorkeling, surfing lessons, helicopter tour, scenic drives and early morning runs up to Spouting Horn just to name a few things. Location of the condo was perfect and we loved being right on the ocean. There is nothing like falling asleep at night to the sound of the waves and waking up to the roosters crowing. That is something we definitely do not get to experience in Minnesota 

Fabulous Condo and Location!

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for us and the condo was great. We began and ended the day on the lanai hearing the waves move in and out, watching the turtles, boats, and surfers. The condo is well stocked and there is nothing we needed that was not there. I really liked the key coded entry which made finding keys or sharing them not an issue. I've always loved Poipu and believe it is the best part of the island to stay, as well as being close to Port Allen and not too far from the airport. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and/or recommend it to others.

Oceanfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and memorable vacation in Poipu and this beautiful condo definitely enhanced the experience. The location couldn’t be better – the view from the living room and lanai is gorgeous and made us feel like we were right on the water. We spotted plenty of sea turtles and surfers enjoying the waves and were serenaded by the mynah birds and red crested cardinals that hung out nearby. We also saw incredible nightly migrations of bright green parrots flying in to nest for the night in the nearby palm trees. The condo is ideally located with the fabulous Beach Front restaurant next door (best calamari on the island) and an easy walk to all the dining and shopping options at the Shops at Kukui'ula. The owners provide snorkeling gear and there are opportunities to see amazing marine life just a minute walk from the condo. There are two nicely furnished bedrooms and two full baths, making this a great option for families or couples trips. The kitchen is nicely stocked with everything needed to make your own meals and enjoy them in the dining nook or out on the lanai. Ultimately, if you want to stay at a place that showcases the beauty of Kauai and the ocean then this is the condo to choose. The owners were very pleasant and professional to deal with as well - we would highly recommend this place and stay here again!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in condo for a week in Jan 2016 and had a fantastic time. The unit is modest – not brand new but clean, tastefully decorated with plenty of upgrades, and has everything you need. Best of all, it is 30 ft from the ocean on the top floor - you hear and see the ocean all day and night, and it is spectacular. Kauai in general and condo complex specifically are a nice combination of being laid back enough to relax, yet there are restaurants and adventures nearby if you want something to do. Me, my husband, and 18 and 22 year old sons stayed in this 2 bed-2 bath condo. There is no air conditioning and I was worried about that (I hate heat and humidity!) but there are ceiling fans as well as floor tower fans in all the rooms and it was perfect; 70-80 degrees every day. We were able to keep the doors open to hear the ocean and feel the breeze. The condo is stocked with linens, bath towels, dishes, eating and cooking utensils, pots, pans, condiments, snorkel gear, beach towels (only had 2…would have been nice to have 4). Not all of it is new, not all of the dishes match, but everything is clean and works. Wi-fi is shared with the neighbor and it worked surprisingly well. There is a communal coin operated laundry on each floor and it was convenient enough. Condo doesn’t have a pool and that might have been nice, but I don’t think that I would have traded that for the proximity to the ocean.

My sons snorkeled in the rather rough looking surf in front and sides of condo looking for sea turtles and fish – they found both and it was so awesome! We also explored the rest of the island over the week we were there – so much to see. We hiked and visited beaches on the north end of Kauai, which is rough and rugged this time of year. We went to Smith’s Luau on the east side of the island and I would recommend that! We also drove and saw the views on the west side – Waimea canyon. Most of the beaches we liked were on the south shore (Poipu). I would love to come back to Kauai someday and would stay here again. One last thing - Kathy and Rick responded to all of our questions prior to the visit but we didn't talk to them once while there - we didn't need to!

Poipu perfection

  • 5 of 5

First visit to Kauai. Thrilled with our choice to stay in the Poipu Beach area. This very comfortable, spacious condo has an amazing outlook. Could not get any closer to the beach. Very nicely furnished and decorated condo. Very comfortable king bed!! Well equipped with extras like snorkelling equipment and beach towels. Watched whales, turtles and surfers from the lanai. Watched the sunset almost every day either from the grassed area in front or with a Majestic Mai Tai sitting at the bar next door. Snorkelled at most beaches on the South shore but found the best to be at nearby Lawai Beach. The condo was within easy walking distance of shops for supplies and dining options and a short drive to bigger stores like Macy's, Walmart and Costco. We have travelled to many countries and look for condo-style accommodation and this one was one of the best we have stayed in. Bonus was free car parking. No fuss check in and out. Security presence at all times. Kauai is an island of beauty and this condo is the place to base yourself to explore. Thanks to the owners.

Kuhio Shores - Best trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our best trip ever! The location of this unit was perfect with the beach and snorkeling right there! The ocean views were spectacular! The unit was clean and so nicely decorated, I felt like I was at home. Kuhio Shores is a very nice place to stay. We rented scooters and rode around the island, went to Queens Bath, hiked many hikes and even went on a tour of the Coco Palms Resort. Locally, in Poipu there are so many restaurants and beautiful beaches to go to in a short distance. We love it here and will return next year. Great property and I highly recommend it. A huge shout out to the owners....they are wonderful people.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 loved our Kuhio Shores getaway. Snorkeling with the turtles right out in front of the condo was a huge highlight. This laid back location is what Hawaii is all about, surf, sun, good food, good vibes and no stress. The condo was really clean, has everything you need and is literally, right on top of the water. Can wait to return again.
