About the property

The Best Of Kauai In Sunny Poipu

Enjoy the best of Kauai and have extra money for island excursions. This fully equipped ocean-view studio condo at Poipu Beach has stunning vistas of the bay, peaceful Prince Kuhio Park, and mountains framed by rainbows and swaying palms.

Only steps to the beach

Prince Kuhio Resort, awarded a prestigious certificate of excellence for its outstanding qualities, is a small and quaint resort about 20 yards from the beach. Some of the best swimming, snorkeling, and surfing on Kauai are right out in front at Prince Kuhio Beach and Lawai Beach. Hawaiian sea turtles and tropical fish swim close to shore in a protected cove.

The sound of the ocean

You will enjoy the sound of the ocean, the birds singing, the tropical breeze, and the amazing sunrise every day from your lanai, which has a bar-height table and chairs so that you can fully enjoy this extraordinary setting. On the other side of the resort there is a koi pond, waterfalls, and a large swimming pool surrounded by a lush, exotic garden with a picnic and barbecue area.

Located on the second floor, the condo is tastefully decorated with island-style furnishings and a comfortable king bed. Cooling trade winds blow through wall-to-wall windows. The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of extras. Beach towels and beach chairs are provided. All you will need are your swimsuit and flip flops!

Laundry facilities are also available on site and ample parking is available at the resort. The owner/manager lives on-island so assistance is always readily available.

About Jane Esaki


I was born and raised on Kauai and currently live near verdant mountains around 50 minutes away from gorgeous sunny Poipu where this condo is located.

I chose this charming ocean-view condo as my home-away-from-home because its location is blessed with nearly year-round sunny skies and excellent beaches. The unit's compact size and convenient location are also practical and perfect for an independent, carefree lifestyle.

In my spare time, I love hiking, biking, stand-up paddling and snorkeling in Kauai's wonderland. You will too!

Mahalo for staying at Prince Kuhio Studio 231!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wow, this is an amazing condo! The location is ideal. It backs up to a park and has beautiful ocean views from the balcony. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony every morning enjoying breakfast and watching the whales out in the ocean. Some of the best snorkeling on the island was just across the street (we even saw a sea turtle!). The Beach House lawn, across the street, was the best place to watch the sun set over the ocean too! The condo was clean and fully stocked. The owner thought of everything - Kitchen Aid mixer, wine glasses & corkscrew, blender, coffee bean grinder, extra hooks in bathroom for beach towels & swimsuits, extra towel rack, beach chairs, a king sized bed, cooler, even a garlic press! We could not have asked for anything more. I highly recommend this perfect studio condo for your Kauai vacation!

Beautiful apartment overlooking Prince Kuhio Park

  • 5 of 5

The grounds were beautiful, loved sitting on lanai at night looking at stars and listening to ocean. It was very warm to sleep, wish a pallet could of been made on lanai to cool off and sleep! The kitchen is great. Saves a lot of money on pricey resort meals. I highly recommend this gorgeous place. I love this area of island.

Great location close to beach and shops

  • 5 of 5

This unit is located across the street from the beach. It's a nice beach to snorkel and people also surf nearby. There is a nice restaurant directly across the street although it's a bit pricey. There are shops and stores located within a short walk and Koloa is very close where there are additional shops - close enough to ride a bicycle. There is a bicycle rental shop close by. The spouting horn is nearby and there are vendors there for souvenirs. There is also a pool on the premises. The location was great. Both Lihue (airport) and Port Allen are about 20 minutes away. Na Pali coast tours leave out of Port Allen. There is also a brew pub right across the street from the tour companies in Port Allen. The fish taco food trucks in Koloa have excellent food and are worth a trip. The unit does not have AC and was a little warm in July when the breeze is low. If you do decide to see the Na Pali coast, we recommend the Holo Holo sunset catamaran sail - you will get soaked!

Great location! The studio has everything you could want in a quiet complex with an ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

The patio overlooks the rural ruins of Prince Kulio's home. Beautiful birds run around on the grounds. Great snorkeling right outside the complex! Would definitely stay here again!
